Custer Hosts a Ghost
6:00 AM | Eddie Park | Comment on this story

Though the FPS genre has more than its share of gripping titles to date, few have captured the feeling of true team strategy and stomach-cramping suspense as well as the Rainbow Six series, based off of Tom Clancy's works. Earlier this month, Mac gamers learned that they would be getting the next game in the lineup, thanks to Aspyr Media, in the form of Ghost Recon.

In a nod to this upcoming title, Custer's latest effort focuses on a member of the Ghosts, an elite American infantry unit that utilizes the latest technology. Titled "Platoon," the desktop depicts a Ghost aiming carefully with an assault rifle.

Here's a clip from Custer himself on his work:

Although there has been no official word from Aspyr Media, it became known via MacAddict that Ghost Recon would be ported to the Macintosh by company. Of course the news is great for fans of the previous Tom Clancy titles. This week's selection was created in honor of the pending annoucement and release. It is titled, "Platoon". I hope you enjoy it as much as I did making it. :)
As always, those interested in grabbing Custer's work can find it at Custer's Desktops. Be sure to check out IMG's previous articles on the subject as well for more information on Ghost Recon.
