"War? Uh! What is it good for?" Asked Edwin Starr. Well, of course scientific and technological research is one answer. Medical advances too. But most of all right now, video games that major on conflict such as this new PC-based one from ex-Rockstar North man Obbe Vermei.
According to the game maker, "'War, the Game' puts the strategy back into RTS. No story, no scripting, no fog of war, no cut scenes. Just you against the AI. Good luck... You will need it." Sounds hardcore, hardcore war. Edwin won't be pleased.
