Saw the clip in question yesterday. Yes, it is pretty shocking, especially if you're not expecting it. However....it evokes an emotional response in many people. That's the point. M rating. Adults only. Bout damn time it meant more than "alien titties and gore." Australia needs to get its head out of its ass and catch up to the times. Video games aren't all for children.


Now, Venezuela....they're considering banning games with /any violence whatsoever/ (if I understand correctly).

('pologies for being a bit...angry in this post, but this sort of censorship elicits that kind of response from me)

Honestly, the game really does deserve an 18+ rating. It's Australia's problem that it doesn't have one for some reason*, not that Australians inherently love censorship.

But I still don't understand why they put this level in the game in the first place. It's really tasteless.


*Michael Atkinson is the reason.

Well if you did some research, 1) Its optional. 2) You aren't a terrorrist, you are an infiltrator and have to join the band to gain their trust to take them out. 3) Its supposed to envoke the horrors of terrorism.

GTA4 lets you go on a rampage anywhere, how is this scene in an airport suddenly 'tasteless'?
No, no, he did. In the everything else section, at least. Officially, this makes him king.

Well the same people who consider the airport scene tasteless, most likely believe GTA is also tasteless.
Hell, Skyward Descent is pure win!

GTA is pretty tasteless, but at least it's abstract and disconnected from reality. This, very much less so.

Anyone who takes part in terrorist atrocities is a de facto terrorist. And then you fail at killing their leader anyway!


EDIT: Also, GTA is fun.

Perhaps Hostel or Saw is a good example...slightly different, but similar? Wanton murder and whatnot. Sadism. Etc. I don't believe those series evoked the amount of outrage this had. Then again...I don't think many movies show people getting gunned down in airports, so it's not exactly the same.

Im really, angry with IW at the moment. They have decided that the PC version won't have dedicated servers so no Clans, Community's, Leagues, Competitive play. So im very tempted to Boycott CODMW2, and or wait till they get there act together and decide not to alienate pc gamers with a god damn console match making system ( yes it works in L4D but completely different game style). The reasons for making it a matchmaking system are so that, people who DON'T play Pc games can get into multi player with a simplistic option, however those that get confused with a Server browser, probably don't have the intelligence to be able to Install the game, put the disk in, or start the computer it self. So yeah sorry about my rant, but they have really ballsed this up.

Rant over, I may Borrow a mates (console copy) for SP but i wont do multi player on the xbox. ( 8 yr old's x100 with mics screaming)

I almost forgot, Heres the petition for dedicated servers. Please sign it :P http://www.PetitionOnline.com/dedis4mw/

The scene is there to make the player feel uncomfortable.

I prepurchased this baby the second it got on Steam and as of today you can preload it.
Man how I played the first game after work before and the second one should be every so much more sweet.

CoD:MW2 is a fps game obviously but hey, here are some youtube links for you to see.

From a mission:

I suppose it's funny that you posted after me, because you are also female.  How coincidental.
