    Heavy Earthquake in Asia

    Two guys at another forum I visit are helping out with tending for the wounded. They posted information for those that wish to donate money to the local Red Cross. I will post it here below. "Thai Red Cross Siam Commercial Bank - Red Cross Branch Acct: 045-248899-3 Swift: SICROTHBK Have your bank use the note section to note that the donation is for Relief in Phuket. We've got a few more volunteers on the way. The Thai Ministry of Health is the lead agency, and they are looking for volunteers, especially those who speak Italian, French or German. There is a shortage of medical supplies and storage facilities for bodies. All donations are appreciated." Truly tragic event.

    War Quotes/Sayings

    Cobra, good quote there. "And Crispin Crispian shall ne'er go by from this day until the ending of the world but we in it shall be remembered. We few, we happy few, we band of brothers. For he today who sheds his blood with me shall be my brother. Be he ne'er so vile, this day shall gentle his condition, and gentlemen in England now abed shall think themselves acursed they were not here, and hold their manhoods cheap whilst any speaks, that fought with us upon St. Crispin's day!" King Henry V

    Brother in Arms

    No. I bought the game though and consider it the biggest waste of money ever in my gaming life. In this case, no, it isnt completely scripted. You can take multiple paths to an objective, but you are still forced to take the same route as the unit did in WW2. Meaning, you can choose to go left or right of certain obstacles, you can choose to go over a field or using hedges for cover. Its still rather limited though, but thats in the nature of things. Since its telling an actual event, it cant be the same freedom we enjoy in OFP (where you basically can attack an objective from any direction, and get there taking any road you want).

    Brother in Arms

    Having played early versions of the game at various press events I can say I will easily buy it. The level of detail (when compared to reality that is, as in, real life locations) is unsurpased. The atmosphere is great. Its extremely fun to lead your two teams, and the interface is really easy and quick to use. Graphics wise, it looks great (played both PC and Xbox and I have no complaints in the graphics department). Sure, some of it is scripted, but since you follow actual historical events, thats no big suprise there.

    Unpleasant implications for the gaming industry

    This is a problem all ready. There are issues with Colt, for example, and rights to use weapons in game. I also know there have been issues with other brands before. In short, they want some of the dough. To put it in MTV generation terms... "SHOW ME THE MONEY!!!"

    Hollywood version of battle for Fallujah

    "Of course the people don't want war. But after all, it's the leaders of the country who determine the policy, and it's always a simple matter to drag the people along whether it's a democracy, a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism, and exposing the country to greater danger." I guess its time to remind people why there is a war going on...

    Rifle scopes

    Hey all you snipers and wannabes out there. I am doing some research into scopes, and could use some feedback by those in the now. I am interested in the field of digital scopes, in other words, scopes that portray an image of the target and not necesserily rely on the user having to look through the classic lense system, but a screen instead. Do these kind of scopes exist? If so, are they used and are they any good?

    Your Favourate MMORPG

    The idea is that you dont have to give cash, but you can choose to invest however much you want. The idea is cool I think, I am just not sure about the company. There was some ruckus a while back about them using pirate software, getting sued, going bankrupt then opening up again. Not sure I want to give them my credit card number, you know...

    Nothing beats it, when played in company with the right people (like most MP games I guess).

    Your Favourate MMORPG

    Previously Played - Meridian 59, Ultima Online, Everquest, Shadowbane, Dark age of Camelot, Earth and Beyond, Eve, Asherons Call, Neocron, Anarchy Online, Currently Playing - Planetside Best MMO ever - Ultima Online I love MMO's, but hate the fact that you have to invest so much time. Thats why UO and PS are my all time favorites. Eve was very good to, but I never got hooked (I blaim my girlfriend for that).

    Gunmen take 200+ student hostages

    LOL. Avon, how do you find all those odd references anyway? Are you the traffic controller of the Information Super Highway or something?

    Gunmen take 200+ student hostages

    I heard that to, but this guy didnt mention anything about that in the statement I saw. I think he was refering to one of the ceiling bombs inside the school, all though I fail to see the connection between the medics and the bomb (except that it happened at the same time).
