The Monday AAR: The Aftermath

Happy Monday, guys! A huge thank you to everyone who participated in Operation Falcon Fury! I think we really got into the spirit of the thing, even after all the crawling around and screaming and dying we all did once lead started peppering the air. At least we were wailing like men, and not like a whiny little brat, or a scared little girl, or Yoko Ono onstage at a Lennon/Clapton show.

Last week's notable events:

    • Operation Falcon Fury was technically a failure, of course, since we never completed the full fifteen missions required of us. But hey! Everyone had fun during the event. I also got to shoot a robed guy toting a machine gun while cowering behind some builders, I drove over a roadside IED at full speed (and obviously scattered my passengers all over the general area), I took some footage of grown men dancing around on the tarmac, and I blew up two radio towers with deadly explosives while screaming, "Fire in the hole!" all serious-like and professional. I'm sure the rest of you have even more memorable and more vivid memories of the op. We're currently putting together our screenshots and videos from the event, but we'll put up a special AAR for that very soon. Thanks for participating!

    • Waveform is due out on March 20, and we'll be ready with our review of the game by then! Read our preview here. If you haven't done so yet, ask a question about the game on this thread to get a chance to win a Steam copy of Waveform!

    • We posted some information about the pre-purchase and the release date and pricing of Guild Wars 2. We're totally planning to put together a guild, but we're gonna need a name. And some funny character avatar concepts. If we're lucky, they'll have hats.

    • In case you haven't noticed yet, the Wasteland 2 Kickstarter has been going strong and still continues to do so. It's currently at 1.3 million dollars with 29 days to go, so yeah, we'll be seeing the game in maybe two years or so.

    • Last but not least, how do you guys feel about playing some Battlefield 3 soon? Our server is getting neglected and frankly, running around, vaulting over fences, and then letting loose with rocket fire into the back of an unsuspecting tank is pretty damn satisfying. As long as you don't get shot by stray fire and die, you know. But even that would be satisfying if it looked cool enough. Who's up for some BF3 soon? Make yourselves known!
