LB & B Associates has decided to adopt UbiSoft's Rogue Spear to help the US Department of Defence train military personnel in dealing with small-unit decision making on urban terrain. Estimates indicate that the game will be in use within six months. It is thought that the parties concerned were particularly impressed with Rogue Spear's game engine. Of course, legend has it that the US military once used Doom to train marines. Rumours that President Bush plays Counter-Strike in his spare time though are as-yet unconfirmed.
