One month ago, the Bluejacket, an apparent Navy newspaper, wrote this article. At the moment the whole server seems to be down. Here´s the full text, copied from the Google cache:
Online video game new tool for recruiting
By Jeffrey G. Nichols CNRC Public Affairs
Your awareness is heightened. You sense someone is watching you, monitoring your movements, waiting for you to get closer. You have no time to waste; you need to reach the downed plane and extract the sensitive information. Your country is depending on you -- are you up to the challenge?
Navy Training Exercise (NTE) “Strike and Retrieve” is a new online video game that was developed by Commander, Navy Recruiting Command and its advertising agency to help build interest in and awareness of Navy high-tech jobs. It uses a hypothetical scenario to challenge the player to locate and secure top-secret documents from within a downed unmanned reconnaissance plane, all the while battling challenging underwater terrain, deep sea creatures and an opposing force also on the trail of the downed plane.
Strike and Retrieve has been developed to provide young men and women aged 17 to 24 with a chance to participate in a “highly sensitive, top-secret” mission. While Navy Recruiting continues to reach out to this audience via more conventional recruiting methods, gaming and interactive electronic media have increasingly become an aspect of this audience’s daily lives. Accordingly, the Navy is working to reach them via these new avenues.
Strike and Retrieve will draw participants and test their skills in different areas that Sailors in the Navy experience in their everyday life and challenge their own skills. There will also be an opportunity for players to learn more about the Navy while searching for special codes to help guide them through the game. The game directs players to Navy.com to find the special codes. The initial version of Strike and Retrieve is downloadable from the Internet and is stand-alone (one player). Plans for future missions and versions that will grow with technology, the Internet and player demands are still under consideration and planning.
Strike and Retrieve is expected to be rated “E” for everyone. The game is mentally challenging, and while the game is aimed at a specific age group -- younger players -- more experienced players can also enjoy the game without fear of violence and gore.
The game is planned for launch on June 15. For more information on the game scenario, go to http://gorgonbox.com.
There had been plenty of self-proclaimed insiders out there, pretending that Gorgonbox contained the Revolution´s secret. There is this blog on it. Also, there has been speculation about a zodiac trio, apparently being Iwata, Miyamoto and Reggie. Finally, all this nonsense is proven to be fake. If anyone should doubt the authenticity of the article, it´s on the Navy.mil server. No way to fake that. There is just no such thing as the N-game, people!
I cannot claim I found this article myself. But, again, my browser crashed and I barely salvaged the link. I couldn´t trace its source, though.
