EA registers trademark for Desert Strike

Desert Strike, was a shoot 'em up released by EA in 1992 for the Sega Mega Drive. It was also later released on SNES. The game was inspired by the Gulf War and depicts a conflict between an insane Middle Eastern dictator, General Kilbaba, and the United States. 

In the game you take control of a lone Apache helicopter and attempt to destroy enemy weapons and installations, rescue hostages and capture enemy personnel. 

Quite frankly it was absolutely brilliant and we'd love to see a remake.

This trademark could relate to anything of course, such as EA protecting its trademark or of course a remake of the game, something it seems which would be ideal for mobile.

We're holding our breath for a console release because that would be great. Let's hope EA grants us our wish.

Don't say 'mobile', please in the name of all that is holy use that word to describe where such a game could end up. I'll be fine with it appearing on any console or PC regardless but the tight controls I needed to play the original on the SNES back in the day means that I see myself crashing into every building in the game if it relies on the feedback-less touchscreen a of a phone or tablet.

Please describe the nature of the abuse:
