    They actually got someone from a incredibly famous gaming blog!

    Slow news day, I guess. They can only milk the Fort Hood shooting to oh-so-many days.

    Not to talk bad about Fort Hood, it's just that news networks see bad news as good news. If you can spend 3 days on one news story, you've hit a good spot of news.

    Anyway, who cares? I don't see MadWorld getting fame on MSNBC because you're able to slice people in half with a chainsaw. Sheesh.

    Hello!?!? McGuild, you should already know this is all a publicity stunt. Why didn't they complain about Splinter Cell: Rogue Agent which deals with you working with the terrorist on personal levels or work for your boss? This is all a 'publicity' stunt no one wins but the media themselves.

    ...and the game publishers. Anyone that would offended by the game's violence and terrorist aspects wouldn't consider the game anyway, but it might just give the game a little more publicity so that last quarter of the planet will buy it.

    At the end of the day, complaints about the content of games always fall on the wrong ears. Either people will hate the game to begin with (e.g. over-protective parents) or they really don't give a shit and will be more inclined to play the game just to piss off the overly-conservative people that feel they need to blame sex, drugs, violence, crime, communism, terrorism, bullying and whatever the fuck else they can't solve on the world of video games.

    I find the game itself overrated.
    Plenty of other shooters out there that're just as good, if not better than this game.

    I do REALLY enjoy the story however. (:

    Lol, you realize that this wouldn't even be on the news if something important was happening. Maybe if health care was actually exciting or there was a big break on the Fort Hood shooter, but otherwise they're like "Eh, fuck it, let's look at terrorists killing people".

    And this was a terrible publicity stunt. If Australia bans MW2 (which they were thinking about/already did, right?), there goes a bunch of your sales. Well, Australia is mainly dirty pirates and kangaroos anyway [​IMG]

    90% of their news are copypasta. Seriously, they should rename it to copypasta blog.

    Also, try talking about how to flash the 360 and see what happens.

    you got me thinking for MW2 in Russia
    why it got banned on consoles [​IMG]
    i've seen 90% of the piracy commerce were from Russia
    and the other 10% from the rest
    Short Said....Russia would outpwn Australia with Piracy [​IMG]

    This is basically Gawker media's business plan.

    Grep as much shit as possible from all the other news sources, add a sentence or two of "witty" attire, and watch as the ignorant masses eat it up like neuropoison.
