    Hmm the concept is indeed strange, but it's definitely innovating, however I can't really see the point of this? What am I suppolse to do? Just take pictures...that's rather boring.

    This is actually a really clever idea. People don't really think about how the war footage gets to the news, but a journalist and cameraman brought them to us. Its a really dangerous job being a war correspondent. I remember there was that one reporter from either ABC or NBC who was in a coma after their unit got hit by an IED.

    It sounds like maybe it could be used as a teaching tool instead of a game that the mainstream public would want? I guess maybe people who are into other forums of photography might enjoy it on some level?

    I really don't know. I like the idea of them trying to come up with something new, but I have to wonder what the point is, too. What's the end result or how do you "win"?

    I think you win by not getting killed. Or maybe you have to get a story out the networks or something. Its also kind of cool because maybe players with no FPS skillz can now play one and be somewhat competent at it.

    Ya know, I was mostly seeing this from the angle of an FPS player. Then I tried seeing it specifically for journalists. But you're right, that maybe this would appeal to someone who isn't into first person shooters at all instead. I kind of completely overlooked that audience that would see this as a fun, camera-oriented game...and not a shooter gone wrong.

    This is a very strange concept for a video game but I think it is really neat. It breaks away from the traditional FPS where there are tons of games that are basically the same. I dont know if I would buy it but still I like the idea.

    I remember watching X-Play years ago, and seeing some Japanese game with a similar concept.



    She threw up some kinda slug thing, attacked you, then started doing the crab walk. DROP THE CAMERA AND RUN, STUPID!:eek:

    Well, it seems worth trying it. Maybe take a break for being in all the action and just watch for once. :)

    You know, I sort of get a Pokemon Snap feeling from this idea.

    I agree. Seems a bit pointless and boring if you ask me. The fun all comes from being shot at then having to shoot back, and hide etc...Not take pictures.

    I have to say I am really interested in this concept. A game where you are tasked to document everything that happens in a warzone can be pretty intense. I'm going to keep an eye on this game.

    I am actually very interested to see how this plays out. To me, I just hope I am not worried about shifting the camera angels to much to view the action. In my opinion, I get a reporter telling the news, type of feel to the game.
