Exhibition includes exclusive pre-release game footage and interviews

Victura, Inc. today announced that one of the world's most respected authorities on conflict, London's Imperial War Museum, has opened its exhibition War Games: Real Conflicts | Virtual Worlds | Extreme Entertainment . Open today until May 28, 2023 this exhibit, which seeks to challenge perceptions of how video games interpret stories about war and conflict, includes exclusive game footage and interviews with the development team from Six Days in Fallujah Victura's upcoming tactical military-shooter video game.

Conceived by a Marine who was badly wounded during the combat, Six Days in Fallujah recreates true stories from 2004's Second Battle of Fallujah , which became one of the world's toughest and most impactful modern battles. In the game, players assume the roles of real Marines, Soldiers, and Iraqi civilians as they participate in critical moments during the battle. Over 100 Marines, Soldiers, and Iraqi civilians who were present during the Second Battle of Fallujah have shared their personal stories, photographs, and video recordings with the development team. The game gives voice to these stories through gameplay and first-person accounts captured in original documentary interview footage.

" Six Days in Fallujah lets players become virtual participants during a world-changing historical event, offering context and insight that hasn't been possible until now," according to Victura CEO Peter Tamte . "It's inspiring to see one of the world's most respected authorities on conflict demonstrate the important ways games like Six Days in Fallujah can use interactivity to help players understand the events shaping our world."

Chris Cooper and Ian Kikuchi , Imperial War Museums' co-curators of the War Games exhibition, say: "Paintings, books, plays, films and tv shows have all told gripping stories about conflict. Video games have continued this tradition in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, becoming today's largest and fastest growing entertainment industry. We hope this exhibition prompts visitors to consider the influence this media might have on our perceptions and understanding of war and conflict."

LAD Brings the Bang Back to That Old Gaming Rig

Gamers have been through thick and thin with their old gaming rigs: online battles, quests and adventures. It seems wasteful to retire it to their grandmother's word processing and email (they know it's Christmas slippers she wants anyway). Don't give up on it there is much better use for that old warhorse, even without a video card.

Burning up that old rig on cryptomining is unlikely to cover the electric bill, however, add a network card or two and a Wi-Fi card and the practical possibilities open up. It has plenty of guts, more than enough to hold its own and then some against mainstream routers. That is how FreeBSD and Linux got going in the 90s, born out of frustration over exorbitant brand-name router prices and the need for something robust and affordable. People knew there was no magic in packet routing and filtering, turning to Unix to power their PCs into routers. That bare-knuckles enthusiasm of sticking it to the man changed everything. Now the man sponsors it – it is strictly business.
