Excerpt: The Avtomat Nikonova model 1994 Abakan, (Nikonov Assault Rifle, model 1994 "Abakan"), called Obokan in Shadow of Chernobyl and AC-96/2 in Clear Sky and Call of Pripyat, is a 5.45mm assault rifle. It appears in S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl, S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Clear Sky and S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Pripyat. It is an advanced assault rifle designed by Gennadiy Nikonov, and the successor of the Kalashnikov 1974 series rifles, made in the historic Izhmash state factories. The AN-94 makes use of a unique blowback shifted pulse system where the barrel moves back and forth when firing to dampen the recoil made by it, it also slightly increases the penetration probability of shots. This weapon is found in all the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. games. It uses 5.45 39mm rounds, can be mounted with a PSO-1 scope, and a GP-25 underbarrel grenade launcher (it does not accept the GP-25 in SoC). The weapon has three selective firing modes: it can fire in single shots, a 2 shot burst or full auto. The weapon makes use of the standard synthetic stock and all metal accessories. It has surprisingly low durability, starting to jam early at 75%. The AN-94 was called the "Obokan" in Shadow of Chernobyl. It is the basic weapon of Duty and Veteran Military elements, and some members of Monolith might posses this weapon as well....

Digital gaming is today a significant economic phenomenon as well as being an intrinsic part of a convergent media culture in postmodern societies. Its ubiquity, as well as the sheer volume of hours young people spend gaming, should make it ripe for urgent academic enquiry, yet the subject was a research backwater until the turn of the millennium. Even today, as tens of millions of young people spend their waking hours manipulating avatars and gaming characters on computer screens, the subject is still treated with scepticism in some academic circles. This handbook aims to reflect the relevance and value of studying digital games, now the subject of a growing number of studies, surveys, conferences and publications. As an overview of the current state of research into digital gaming, the 42 papers included in this handbook focus on the social and cultural relevance of gaming. In doing so, they provide an alternative perspective to one-dimensional studies of gaming, whose agendas do not include cultural factors. The contributions, which range from theoretical approaches to empirical studies, cover various topics including analyses of games themselves, the player-game interaction, and the social context of gaming. In addition, the educational aspects of games and gaming are treated in a discrete section. With material on non-commercial gaming trends such as ‘modding’, and a multinational group of authors from eleven nations, the handbook is a vital publication demonstrating that new media cultures are far more complex and diverse than commonly assumed in a debate dominated by concerns over violent content.

This collection presents new work in risk media studies from critical humanities perspectives. Defining, historicizing, and consolidating current scholarship, the volume seeks to shape an emerging field, signposting its generative insights while examining its implicit assumptions. When and under what conditions does risk emerge? How is risk mediated? Who are the targets of risk media? Who manages risk? Who lives with it? Who are most in danger? Such questions—the what, how, who, when, and why of risk media—inform the scope of this volume. With roots in critical media studies and science and technology studies, it hopes to inspire new questions, perspectives, frameworks, and analytical tools not only for risk, media, and communication studies, but also for social and cultural theories. Editors Bishnupriya Ghosh and Bhaskar Sarkar bring together contributors who elucidate and interrogate risk media’s varied histories and futures. This book is meant for students and scholars of media and communication studies, science and technology studies, and the interdisciplinary humanities, looking either to deepen their engagement with risk media or to broaden their knowledge of this emerging field.

How long is the shadow of a battle, an explosion, a revolution? What stories arise in the wake of devastation? This issue explores the complicated aftermath and legacy of conflict. Lindsey Hilsum returns to Rwanda two decades after witnessing the beginning of genocide. Patrick French writes of a great-uncle whose heroism in World War I left behind a 'saturating cult of remembrance'. From air-raid drills in Paul Auster's America to a calf with a broken foot in Herta Mller's Rumania, this is how we live after the war. With new writing by Aminatta Forna, Romesh Gunesekera, A.L. Kennedy, Hari Kunzru, Yiyun Li, Thomas McGuane, poetry by Jean-Paul de Dadelsen, Ange Mlinko and Rowan Ricardo Phillips and photography by Dave Heath and Justin Jin.
