    Re: Modern Warfare 2 Opens with Terror

    I remember the first time I beat up on a whore in gta4. Big fat one. I ended up on the ground thanks to her hidden knife. Damn knife whores. I did like the Russian backdrop though. Made great story.
    I was talking about the bad guys in MW2 being Russian. The bad guys are always Russian. It's stupid.

    That's fine, just don't cry about it when it's being thrown back at you. If this is how you want to do things, it's fine by me.

    Furthermore, you've stopped discussing the topic pages ago. There was never "civil disclosure" coming from you to begin with, so I don't know why I would have expected it from you anyway.

    Why don't you just answer a the simple question I posed for you right in the beginning: Why do you expect video games to be PC?

    I see. Well maybe Russians should quit being so tough and mean.

    The Russians are notoriously evil though. Comes with communism. heheh

    But Nazi's and zombies (and the dreaded Nazi zombie) also get a bad rap in the video game biz, is that wrong too? One of the first really popular FPS was Wolfenstein 3D, and pitted you against the Nazi army (this game was temporarily banned in Germany). In the end, a lot of shooters which revolve around war and draw from the real world for plots will take Russians, as we fought against them for so long. The Japanese, the Nazis are also amongst the groups which provide commonly fought foes. Now terrorists are getting into the mix too.

    I don't think there's anything wrong with using Russian terrorists or whatever they have planned. It's not "stupid" just because they use Russians as the bad guys. I've played a lot of games where zombies are the enemy, and I don't think it's stupid because zombies are involved. For the most part, there's a lot of plot, engine, graphics considerations as well. If the game is fun, it's fun. That's the point of a game.

    Second, who cares? In GTA4 you could f*ck hookers and then murder them to get your money back. You could club old ladies in the head until they had blood spurting out, and when they died you'd keep hitting them to see how big of a mess you could make. Then you could take their money and buy molotovs to throw at hordes of unsuspecting civilians. If that's not terrorism then I don't know what is.

    My only disagreement is that they had to go with the played-out choice of making them Russian. So typical.
    Well, they'd already done Italians and blacks. The only real significant crime groups aside from the Russians that they could have picked were Mexicans.

    On topic: I'm really more excited for Dragon Age: Origins. I'm not a real big fan of the FPS genre.

    My point, in my first post on this thread, was in response to the lack of outrage at the game, because it's just a game. I was curious to see if those same people would cool with a game where you get to kill household pets, or some other act that is a helluva lot less PC. Would you be ok with a game where you bury house cats up to their necks, then run them over a with a lawnmower? Would you still be as blazais about it?


    Hell, it's just a game.
    I am sure you can find flash based games online that allow players to molest children. Do I care? No.

    Well, it seems AP has had ample time to try and address these questions. She has refused to try and debate me or anyone else for that matter it seems. She has not even attempted to answer the question I have posed, so in having respect of other board members, I don't want to sound like a broken record and ask again. If you care to debate this topic ap, go back and read what others have asked you. Peace.

    Dedicated servers would be nice even for ps3 and xbox for the sake of player made mods, although. I hate it when companies make a match finding thingy of their own. It almost never ends up well. I hope they put full effort into it. I hear they are making it user choice free where it just auto puts you into the best games without your input. I sure hope not because, FatPrincess is that way and I almost never play it now, without a choice of games to join.
    I have a PS3 as well, but not a fan of playing FPS on a console. They just feel clumsy to me in general. Killzone 2 is the only FPS on a console that I've played for a while. And another thing that I've heard some complaints on the PC side about the scheme that IW is doing is that it gives the guy who hosts the game a nice little advantage compared to everyone else. A ping of 0 ms, since one of the players is the person who hosts the game. Well like I said before, I'll wait and see.

    Got a ton of games coming up that I need to play, so probably not really going to miss MW2. I still play COD4 and now I have Borderlands, Dragon Age: Origins (ordered the CE) and Champions Online to play and Left 4 Dead 2 is coming soon as well. And for PS3 I have Agarest: Generations of War, Batman: Arkham Asalym and Valkyria Chronicles to play. And probably going to get Tekken 6 in a while so my significant other and I can beat each other up.
    ...we honor leaders for what they achieve, but we often prefer to close our eyes to the way they achieve it...

    In the real world, politics is compromise and democracy is politics. Anyone who would be a statesman has to be a successful politician first. Also, a leader has to deal with people and nations as they are, not as they should be. As a result, the qualities required for leadership are not necessary those that we would want our children to emulate - unless we wanted them to be leaders.
