The image of the weapon is an actual protoype weapon called The Punisher that the US is going to roll out. I thought it was interesting that it looked so much like a HALO weapon. Read about it by clicking the headline.
The other thing is something I produced when I worked for Paradox. It was an "Urban" fighting game concept. All the ideas sucked. I don't think it was ever produced. We are all richer for its absence. I added some more. Starting about 3:30, your nightmare Tom. Mine too.
