Best character name EVER.

Anaconda has announced plans to publish a new PC first-person shooter next year, featuring quite possibly the best-named videogame hero ever.

Red Ocean follows the adventures of - wait for it - Jack Hard, a diving instructor and treasure hunter. Whilst mosying along the bottom of the ocean, he discovers a secret cold war research station which once belonged to those pesky Russkies.
