We have important, dare we say even exigent, breaking news. Apparently you can now run your own missions in Abbottabad.
Abbottabad, for those of you living off the grid, under a rock or in an extremely remote LP/OP, was where Bin Laden was killed by a team of assorted American carnivores from DevGru, the 160th SOAR (or so we're guessing) and at least one really bad ass doggy kennel. Anyway, that compound is now a playable map in Counter-Strike: Source, an older first person shooter.
The map's author 'Fletch' advises: "What alot of people don’t seem to understand is that the only thing this map has in common with Osama is location. I can see how people would think it is in bad taste, but honestly if that’s your opinion you may as well protest the whole game (as well as many others)."
Now, to be honest, we're not that impressed with the map. NOT because we disapprove - we heartily do approve. We just wish it there was one for Black Ops and the Zombie game on Black Ops (and maybe one for Modern Warfare 2?). If someone builds one of those, then we'll get really excited. Until then boys and girls, the Mad Duo will just have to keep hunting tangos and insurgents alongside our brothers and sisters in a little place we like to call The Real World. Great idea though, Fletch!
If anyone protests this map as 'inappropriate' or 'disturbing' it's probably because they've been eating too much granola...or maybe they're just sensitive from tree bark abrasions.
