Express love with antique duelling pistols

Make love and war!

If you tune in to your local radio station tomorrow, apart from hearing a lot of soppy dedications and lonely heart plugs, you may be offered the chance to win a pair of replica antique duelling pistols - courtesy of American Conquest publisher CDV.

CDV believes that antique duelling pistols (described as "works of art" by PR Manager Anita Rodic), are symbolic trophies of American history, and the perfect thing to promote GSC Game World's highly anticipated strategy title American Conquest, which is due out tomorrow.

The guns will be given away throughout Valentine's Day on local radio stations up and down the land, from Forth FM in the north to BBC Radio Devon, and gamers are encouraged to tune in.

American Conquest covers 300 years of properly documented - in other words, accurate - history, starting with Columbus' landing on Newfound Land in 1492 and culminating in the War of Independence some 321 years later. That's the original War of Independence, as opposed to the CDV-sponsored alternative announced last month.

We'll be bringing you our full review of American Conquest tomorrow, but we'll make no secret of our affection for GSC's epic battlefield simulator. If you're a fan of strategy games, you aren't going to find much fault in this one.
