I'm looking forward to Rainbow Six: Raven Shield. The demos are great. Multiplayer may finally be the successor to Counterstrike we've been waiting for, and single player is a lot of fun.

These Tom Clancy games are creepy military porn. Fans love them for their realistic weapons, tactical planning, corpses, etc. I confess to an uneasy enjoyment of this kind of fantasy. Hitman 2 was awesome.

What surprises me is how much of the fan activity for Raven Shield is European. I would have expected something this militaristic would be most popular in the US. Maybe the realism of it turns off American Rambos.

PS: Amazon has a $10 rebate.
