Totally not a Starship Troopers rip off.  A third-person shooter released in Japan last December gets its North America debut this week.


Insurgency: Sandstorm

Insurgency: Sandstorm is first-person shooter that ramps the difficulty past 11 since your heads up display skips the health bar, ammo count and map. Which makes me wonder what does it show?!
