Desert Desserts: Spec Ops Adds Free Helping Of Co-op

You've finished Spec Ops: The Line. You've seen its harrowing tale through from start to finish and felt the moral conflict claw its way into your gut. So then, what now? Do you go back to other shooters - which are significantly lacking in both awareness of their own problematic place in the cultural landscape and┬áheaping mountains of sand? At one point in time, I…
