Contrary to all the joking that's been going on, the game Section 8 has nothing to do with housing for lower income families. Instead, the game's title is a supposed reference to a section of military code regarding insane soldiers, and the characters you play as are said to fit the bill.
Case in point, their entry to the battlefield. Taking a note from Halo's ODSTs (Orbital Drop Shock Troopers), Section 8 has you spawn in a point of your choosing. Pinpoint a spot on the map, and prepare to drop from space right into the FPS action.
