K maybe I chose a poor word, but WTF. I watched that trailer and WTF. Why would they want to make a game where your "special forces" kill police officers and civilians???????

Dude is sitting in nice house -> Wife comes in, brings cupcake, sings happy birthday -> His "birthday wish" (foing) is about to come true -> Knock on door -> No fo -> Wife goes to check it out and a bunch of skinhead looking dudes bust in tape her up and beat the dude up -> They say that he is well off because of all the people that went bankrupt -> They say they'll kill his wife and kid if he doesn't comply with their demands -> Skinhead chloroforms him ––-> Well off guy wakes up in van with skinheads and bomb vest strapped to his vest that has a dead man's switch -> He is told they are headed to Time Square -> Skinhead's van ambushed -> Blah blah blah blah, gun fight, blah blah blah -> Skinheads killed, tough choices made, etc.

...I don't see how you got "liberal" out of that .
In any case, it's a game and there needs to be conflict. It didn't really seem like the characters went out of their way to kill the guy. They had to make the choice that his life wasn't worth the hundreds saving him would have cost.

looks like there will be fun multiplayer


eta: i guess it could be construed as liberal because they make it look patriotic to fire on cops and then chuck civvies over bridges
before they explode, cuz fuck em, amirite?

I highly fucking doubt they'll leave that bridge section in the released game. Not going to happen.

Considering COD had you shooting up an Airport, I think it'll stick around.

It says that it isn't even actual game footage down in the corner of the screen. It's just like playable concept art from the looks of things.

I will buy that game and play the ever loving shit out of it, just like the last R6 game I bought.
Link Posted: 11/20/2011 1:37:08 AM EDT
I love it when they got ambushed on the bridge. Thought the scene where they throw the bomber over the bridge was pretty retarded though.

I'll admit that I never pulled the trigger unless I was being fired upon in that mission.

I know it's just a game, but that level bugged me.

That was all kinds of fucked up.



Will it be available for the 360?

One of the posters in the video link talks about the game being about decisions and you can save the bomber or throw him over board or just let it take out the bridge.

edit: Talk about a terrible situation to be stuck in dude is about to get some birthday pie from the wife only to have some terrorist skin/dickhead storm the door, strap a bomb to him then threaten to gut his wife and baby daughter if he doesn't comply. I think I'll save him.

It's not a trailer, it's just a gameplay concept. You'd know that if you didn't watch the italian subbed version. The real game won't be quite like that.
Link Posted: 11/20/2011 4:52:06 AM EDT
Why didn't you link to the English version? It's right there on the right-side panel.
Link Posted: 11/20/2011 2:57:52 PM EDT
I'll buy it.

I see. There isn't much taboo in video games these days, and I couldn't watch the linked video on my Tablet. But gamers are jaded. Not much is off limits, as referenced by the COD airport shootout. Except titties. Tear people up, maim and kill, shoot civilians, but NO TITTIES!

Our society is more uncomfortable with nudity than violence.

Having said that, people would watch movies where stuff like this happens without thinking twice. Don't see why games are different.

I guess you completely missed the part where the Police officers were shot in the leg, to prevent them from killing the guy in the Suicide vest, in order to save civilians still trapped on the bridge.

Never mind, if you didn't understand it, you didn't understand it.

It's a bullshit game. Game Informer had an article on it, where it was discussed in depth. Long story short––-group of activists, SHTF survival types, etc. get fed up by the continued destruction of our nation at the hands of the financial industry and politicians. They decide to act when they are united under a leader...and are subsequently deemed "terrorists". Then the game is spent showing how evil they are and the player gets to kill them. It's little more than desensitization.

So you have a problem with skinheads that are pushing a seemingly socialist agenda getting shot up while forcing an otherwise innocent, uninvolved civilian into a suicide bombing mission?

Not all survivalists are conservative and hold the ideals of the Constitution near and dear .

Plus, it's a game, I doubt they thought through it enough to have any deep political message tied into it.

Yes I have a problem with skinheads and Socialists. I don't agree with the suicide bombing mission. They went into great detail in the article I read, and the basic message was that if you are upset with how the nation is being run into the ground, want a return to the Constitution, use the word "Patriot", and/or own a firearm, then chances are high that you are a terrorist. There is the assumption that many, including many on this forum, have not acted simply because no single leader has emerged to unite us, and influence us to engage in wholesale terrorism. THAT is what I do not agree with.

As far as it being a game...yes, I understand that it is a game, but as such, it is a form of media that is made to be distributed to the masses. I don't assume that there is no "deep political message tied to it" just because it is a form of entertainment. It is a piece of media that is designed to be introduced into millions of homes (if it is successful). From what I've read about the game, and compared to our current situation, it seems more and more like a piece of propoganda to me.

So, lets get this straight.


How many people here say "it's just a game don't freak out" totally freaked out when DHS released the report saying basically right wingers are terrorists, a report this game seems to have used to create the "Bad guys" of the game?



It will be interesting to see where ARFCOM's hypocrisy stands tonight.

Oh no! A game where we're not killing arabs/chinese/russians/communists/north koreans/generic terrorists! The humanity! Some people here pick the stupidest shit to get all offended about.

Since one of the bad guys is black, I don't think they are skinheads...

Right wingers don't typically seem to have the "blame the rich" mentality the terrorists did in the game
