STOMPer Vicki Chan was shocked to see how far fans would go just to catch a glimpse of up-and-coming Japanese singer, May’n, during her performance at the Anime Festival Asia 2008.
In an email to STOMP yesterday (Nov 23), the STOMPer says:
“Desperate to get a glimpse of up-and-coming Japanese singer, May’n, during her mini concert at Anime Festival Asia 2008, these two fans went to the side of the stage and climbed onto a scaffold to try and get a good view of the stage.
“They ignored the fact that it was dangerous. They could have lost their balance and fell.”
The U.S. Army has created a video game training unit that will begin operation in 2010, and has funding for it set aside to the tune of $50 million, reports Stars and Stripes. This isn't for recruiting or marketing, but the training of its soldiers in virtual environments.
"The Army takes this seriously," said Lt. Col. Gary Stephens, of the Project Executive Office — Simulation Training and Instrumentation, which will supervise this unit. "We own gaming for the Army — from requirements through procurement."
While the Army will not compete with video game development per se, nor is it producing commercially available products, it will still be interacting with the civilian games industry. The Army will be closely monitoring trends that may be able to help its video game training unit. It also has an undisclosed budget to purchase or have developed a state-of-the-art successor to its "DARWARS Ambush" trainer , basically an FPS with 20th-century technology limitations.
The new trainer, "Game After Ambush" will require much stronger technology, including support for more trainees participating at the same time, full-featured terrain and scenario modification, and playback/review capability so that instructors can assess trainees' tactics and choices. It sounds like they want to get this up pretty soon.
Leslie Duvow, project director for gaming at PEO-STRI, said the Army will have 70 gaming systems in 53 locations in the United States, Germany, Italy and South Korea between February and September 2009.
"Each system will consist of 52 computers with ancillary equipment including steering wheels, headsets and mice," she said.
Soldiers will be able to drive virtual vehicles, fire virtual weapons, pilot virtual unmanned aerial vehicles and do "most anything a soldier does" in a virtual battle space as large as 100 kilometers by 100 kilometers, she said.
[Col. Mark] McManigal [of Training and Doctrine Command] said the game will replicate what soldiers encounter on today’s battlefield — from fighting in urban terrain and convoy operations to reacting to contact and ambush operations.
"Your imagination will be your only limiting factor," he said.
Ima da dasun da Breast Fire!
Mazin go! Mazin go! Mazinger Z!
He also performed songs from Combattler V, Getter-robo, Lupin the third, Captain Harlock, Steel Jeeg just to name a few. I think he sang more than 10 songs tonight very very energetic and soulful performance by him! He even came down from the stage to shake hands with his fans and he hinted that he may bring his own band down to SG if an opportunity presents itself (AFA'09!?) at which the crowd starts shouting "JAM PROJECT! JAM PROJECT!" . He will also be releasing several new albums which sadly will not be sold in SG but can always order thru the internet hehe~
Gundam Exia with Ho.
Gundam Exia with me.
My old digital camera have failed me. Can't get a clear shot of May' n. Her vocal is powerful. I had a wonderful time hearing her sing. Her song touches me. Hope she will be back to Singapore. again. She had a sparkling smile. She took off her gloves to shake hand with her fans (including me). Too bad she didn't sign her autograph on the spot. All her autographs are different in terms of the things she wrote. My friend gets a ' LUV U' and I get a 'Thanks'. Some other people got some japanese words which I couldn't understand. Collect them all.
