            I figured as much, as well as I too. Meet ya down on the ground engulfed in flames, *waves to SNAFU* before she hits the ground* Don't think I like this game.

                How about the third horrible option: Escaping the building?

                By the by, where do you get that this is a new game? The mod site looks exactly the same as about six months ago. Apparently the development has stopped way back then.
                Ah, to be a hero. Keeping such company...

                      I known among my friends for having an extremely sick sense of humour, but even I found that beyond the boundaries of my taste. However, I wouldn't dream of trying to censor anything like that.

                      Reactions to political elements in games are interesting. We can sneer at anything that doesn't propagate our cherished orthodoxies, while hailing games containing entire levels based on shooting arabs. Political viewpoints and reasons are necessarily simplified.

                      Murder, other than in the most strict forensic sense, is never soluble. That dark human clot can never melt into a lucid, clear suspension. Our detective fictions tell us otherwise: everything's just meat and cold ballistics. Provide a murderer, a motive and a means, you've solved the crime. Using this method, the solution to the Second World War is as follows: Hitler. The German Economy. Tanks. Thus, for convenience, we reduce the complex events.

                      The greater part of any murder is the field of theory, fascination and hysteria that it engenders. A black diaspora. Our tireless, sinister enthusiasm. Five murdered Paupers, one anonymous assailant. The reality is dwarfed by the vast theme-park we've built around it.

                      [final illustration in sequence: Billboard proclaiming "COMING SOON: FROM HELL THE MOVIE"]

                      "From Hell" (The intelligent book by Alan Moore and Eddie Campbell, not the dumb film)
                      In real life, "collateral damage" occurs, whereas in all of the typical "good guys/bad guys" scenarios I've played civilian death is completely censored out, only ascribed to "bad guys", or just one civilian casualty results in mission failure. I don't know if such sanitisation is the only thing that renders warfare acceptable entertainment, but AFAIK no publisher has so far risked a game lacking it.

                      If war games were actually realistic, there would be a much smaller audience for them. Instead, the good guys are really good, and most battlefields are clean as you enter them. No suicides lying around, no shit, vomit, urine or whimpers, no shell shock. A halcyon fantasy where there's always a means of escape or survival, hands don't shake, everyone respawns and goes home for tea.

                      On this subject, "Use of Weapons" by Iain M. Banks is the best SF I've ever read, and if it doesn't fuck with your notions of heroism, murder, warfare and espionage, nothing will.
