    Re: Liam Fox defends call for ban of Medal of Honor game

    I've been involved in the game industry for awhile. I've actually been to EA's Vancouver, Redwood, and Orlando studios. These people work very hard on their products and when you go into each studio you see a big white board with competing games box art taped to the side, and notes of what each has.

    I would assume after MW2 stepped up the bar with the shock of the airport scene and seeing America in shambles as you are fighting Russian forces they had to think of something that gave people mixed feelings or anger them. When you play MW2 and you see a quaint suburban town is totally destroyed by war it gets you ready to go and fight, I would assume this has the same effect. Hey at least it wasn't fox talking about Mass Effect being a porno lol.

    That is sheer sacrilege! It was certainly not the best of the series, but it was still a pretty good game.

    There hasnt been very much new to the Civ series since Call to Power. The last Civ game (4 I think it was) was absolutely terrible. Very little unit selection, fewer wonders, buggy as hell, dumb AI, skewed diplomacy system.

    It is a damn video game. People need to chill. When I play them I like to kill everything and anything, but outside the game I am not that violent.

    Me too. I'm forever jumping up and hitting my head on things hoping for magic mushrooms to fall out.

    Re: Liam Fox defends call for ban of Medal of Honor game

    I've personally asked Firaxis to delay the release of Civ V till Nov. I should get my new Comp up by late Oct. Until then, the anguish of a Civ Game being out that I could not play would be...

    unbareable. I have also sacrificed several goats to the Demon God of Game Delay for this to occur as well.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

The thing with the airport scene is, that has no relevance to current modern day conflict. In COD, it is well known you can play terrorists (on multiplayer anyway), but MoH takes it to a new level by introducing a Taliban storyline. But being the free market guy i am, the game developers have a right to publish and create this kind of storyline and game.
