    I just rented the NRA's new videogame called "Gun Club." It isn't too bad of a game, you play a bunch of different games, must qualify to advance through stages. Offers over 100 firearms. Very nice, no music, and tells safety rules on loading screen. Would be great to teach kids with without having to worry about anything. Plus, it's fun when the weather doesn't cooperate.

    Check it out, it ain't half bad.

    Note: I'm not even an NRA member yet, so this is unbiased.

    NRA Gun Club PS2

    It's a good simulation, no replacement for range time but a very good way to introduce younger kids to shooting and gun safety. There is zero violence, zero blood. It concentrates on marksmanship, It really stands out as a unique option amongst videogames. For example, every time there is a load screen the screen displays gun safety information (the four rules).
    This really is a good, responsible game to buy a kid you know this Christmas.
    It's $20.

    Incidently, on the gaming forums (yes, I play videogames, I have since about 1980, they relax me) some of the kids are bemoaning this game for not having violence and blood, for being realistic. Gamer kids hate Hillary Clinton as she is anti-violent games and has threatened to ban them. So the notion has evolved that this game was created by Hillary.
    That's right, a game called NRA Gun Club is believed to be the work of Hillary. Tsk, kids these days.

    In case we get bored, can you post a link to gamer threads accusing Hillary Clinton of designing this game? Gamer threads are oft good for a larf.

    Matt, no problem here are a few quotes, and links.

    I can't find the Hillary quote but I found one similar, and another that was equally contentious.
    Things get deleted pretty fast there.

    A couple months ago, I was at Sportsman's Warehouse and noticed that they had a copy of the "NRA Highpower Competition" game. It looked kind of interesting. However, I noticed that it had a rating which stated "Mild Violence".

    :rolleyes:

    Yup. Using a virtual rifle to put virtual holes in virtual paper is now considered to be violent. My dad was born in 1922 and his prize possession as a child was a BB gun which would accept an honest-to-God metal bayonet.

    Now we ban "tag" and "contact games" on the playground because kids might hurt themselves, and guns which don't even exist are "violent".

    :barf:

    How do those light-guns work?

    It depends, really. Some are different. Here's a description from one of the Time Crisis 2 Arcade FAQs, which should use the same tech as the GunCon 2 series (given that TC2 is what the G-Con2 was intended for):

    TC2 also had "realistic" recoiling slides on the guns (which were really strange when you picked up the machinegun on Stage 1).

    Some of the older games like Gunblade and L.A. Machineguns use positional guns, which are pretty much advanced gun-shaped joysticks.

    Only if the games box says it supports a gun peripheral.

    What he said.

    One of the more entertaining things with the console lightguns are their add-ons. There's a lightgun called the Scorpion 3, which looks like a Glock or a Sigma with a laser sight. The predecessor Scorpion 2, resembled a PPK.

    There's also the Sharp Shooter 2, which has a "red-dot" sight on it. I've seen these for about £10 in the local Cash Convertors (kind of a pawn shop equivalent), so I might buy one and see if they're any good.

    I personally have one of these.

    You just gave me a terrible flashback of living in Hackney and having to try and relocate my guitars/decks/etc after some enterprising young men kicked in my front door in broad daylight while I was at work and made off with the lot.
    British pawn shops, they're dodgier than Micheal Barrymore's party tricks.

    Yes the game is good i bought it online a few days ago but I cannot hit the targets I allways missed left but even if I am 30 degrees to the right of target I still get a missed left msg.
    Have emailed the developers and no reply very slack of them.
    Cheers from OZ.
