The girls are nice and the hardware is cool, but the quasi-fetish combination does absolutely nothing more for me. I've never really been a fan of the "girls posing with things" concept. Not with cars, not with consoles and especially not in camo bikinis with guns. I'm in it only for the girls is what i'm saying.
