PC gamers?

Me has good news for ye.

Apocalyptic book series gets first video game

‘Left Behind: Eternal Forces’ to be released between December and April

Woe to you, oh Earth and sea, because the Devil sends the Beast with wrath...and the new Playstation:
SAN FRANCISCO - The first video game tied to the best-selling apocalyptic "Left Behind" book series will be released in coming months, a spokesman for Left Behind Games said Wednesday.

The PC game is titled "Left Behind: Eternal Forces" and will be released between December and April. Retail pricing was not immediately available.

Authors Tim LaHaye and Jerry Jenkins have written more than a dozen novels for the series, which is based on prophecies from the Bible's Book of Revelation.
If you're not familiar with these books, get thee to Amazon.

Basically, the series tells the tale of those of us who are "left behind" after the apocalypse. Those of us who aren't "born again."

Irish Catholicism doesn't count: Sucks for me.

Based on fundamentalist interpretation of prophecies in the Biblical books of Revelation, Isaiah and Ezekiel, "Left Behind" tells the story of the end times, in which many have vanished --
"Born again Christians" go straight to Heaven --
-- leaving the world shattered and chaotic.

As people scamble for answers, a Romanian politician named Nicolae Jetty Carpathia, who, in his political rise to the head of the United Nations, has promised to restore peace and stability to all nations.

What most of the world does not realize is that Carpathia is actually the Antichrist of the Bible.

Coming to grips with the truth and becoming born-again Christians, Rayford Steele, his daughter, Chloe, their pastor Bruce Barnes, and young journalist Cameron "Buck" Williams begin their quest as the Tribulation Force to help save the lost and prepare for the coming tribulation, in which God will rain down judgement on the world.
Perfect story for a video game, yeah?

Back to the first article:
The first video game title is set in New York and pits a small resistance force against the Antichrist, who has seized power at the United Nations --

-- with the goal of world domination.
She'll be a challenge, boys and girls. That I can tell you.

She can shoot...friggin' laser beams...right out of her eyes!

But you can do it, nerds. I swear to the sweet baby Jesus. (She's not that smart: She married Nick Lachey, remember?)


Can someone please explain the far Right's obesession with the UN?

I mean, I know they hate it...but come on.


More later...

"Let him who hath understanding reckon the Number of the Beast, for it is a human number. It's six hundred and sixty six."

Dug uh dugga dugga dugga duh dugga duh.
