Section 8 is all about guys in power armor shooting at each other, and that's a story concept I can really get behind, but Timegate apparently thinks you need a bit more background on the game world in order to fully immerse yourself in the experience. Bah, I say! Give me power armor and some big guns and I shall write my own story, with bullets.
Once upon a time there was a little developer that developed a cult classic named Tribes. Gamers loved it, and many years after no one played it anymore there were still other developers trying to clone it.
Section 8 was one of those clones, and like many before it; the game came and went without much more than a blip in a few gamer radars.
Then the Modern Warfare 2 came out and everyone fragged happily every after.
