The Virtua Corps: Rossignol at the Escapist

Jim is away today. Don't be sad. He left something for me to post later and until then you can get your Rossignol fix over at the Escapist, where they've just published his Virtua Corps article. It's about hardcore Solder-Sim fanatics online.

One of the finer pleasures of being a journalist who spends too much time in the depths of PC gaming is the number of encounters you have with the platform's various subcultures. Over the past five years, one in particular has fixed me with a mixture of dread and amazement: It's the community that surrounds the hardcore soldier sim.

Idle, completely pointless and completely unprovable boast: I was the first person who started referring to the whole sub-genre as Soldier Sims. I'm all about the morning neologisms, me, even if they're not really very clever at all. Anyway - read the rest of Jim's article over here.
