The US Army is releasing a series of computer games for free, called America's Army
. It's going to have two main games, Soldier, and Operations. Soldier will be I guess like The Sims, except with fewer deaths, and Operations will be like any of the latest batch of tactical shooters. The first one, AA:Operations - Recon, is coming out on the 4th of July. How patriotic.
