Chinese Version of Company of Heroes Zaps Nazi References

August 27, 2009 -

The popular, World War II-themed RTS Company of Heroes is shortly to enter the Chinese game market as Company of Heroes Online, reports Kotaku.

When it does, all references to Nazi Germany will have been purged. The German side will be renamed "The Federation," while iron cross symbols on German vehicles and buildings will also be changed.

Re: Chinese Version of Company of Heroes Zaps Nazi ...

I don’t understand this move but I can say China most likely wants to focus the evils of World War II on Japan which they are rightly to want. The treatment of the Chinese by the Japanese in World War II is how most Jews feel about Germans during World War II. 
 
Japan was a vile and evil country that literally raped China. Any town or city they entered the first thing they did was rape the locals. Japan has already been a country that advocates rape and has the shame of being a country that would board American, British and Australian Ships and use those women on those Cruise Ships as “comfort women.”
 
Sadly the Suburban kids here in the United States are willing to forgive and forget when it comes to Japan with there Anime and Japanese gaming obsession which somehow makes Japan exempt from their crimes.
 
Japan is only better today was because MacArthur refused Eisenhower and Truman to control Japan and split control globally like was done in Germany and Europe since the Soviets wanted to control Northern Japan.  Thankfully MacArthur won and Japan is better for it today but not before Truman fired him which lead Truman an American President to hide himself in a bunker afraid MacArthur would come after him.
 

Japan still refuses to apologize for it’s massive rapes which still outrages older Americans and Chinese.

I can understand that for some countries WWII and the Nazi regime is a sore issue. But pretending it didn't happen isn't going to make it go away or change what happened.

Re: Chinese Version of Company of Heroes Zaps Nazi ...

It's more they want to focus on Japan.

Re: Chinese Version of Company of Heroes Zaps Nazi ...

Maybe it's about temptation. If it wasn't there they won't be tempted to do it again? It's very broken, I know.


Re: Chinese Version of Company of Heroes Zaps Nazi ...

What are you talking about?

Re: Chinese Version of Company of Heroes Zaps Nazi ...

 Wait a second, simple modification (without any claims as to WHY they're doing this) provokes mudslinging into China's past?

I'm the last person to support censorship, but this seems like a nonsequitur to me.

Re: Chinese Version of Company of Heroes Zaps Nazi ...

Are you directing this at the article or the comments? Oh, and do you have a theory as to why they would want to edit the game in such a way?

 

Re: Chinese Version of Company of Heroes Zaps Nazi ...

The comments, the article is lacking in detail, merely that the game has been altered.

If I had to offer up a theory, I'd probably say that it's for the same reasons crosses are edited out of a lot of media that come from Japan and reach American shores: sensitivity. That's no excuse though, and in no way do I endorse censorship, but using this as a platform to mudsling seems absurd to me, especially when some people in the comments are mocking the country's equivalant of the Holocaust (The Rape of Nanking). Seriously, what the hell? That's like if someone said "You know why the Jews got killed by the Nazis? Because they're so Goddamned cheap!" It's disgusting and callous to the nth degree. And I'm a little rusty on my history, but I never heard of China having links to Nazi Germany back in WW2. I'll have to check up on that.

Personally, I think China has a great very many things wrong, but fabricating or using whatever platform you can to perpetuate your hatred is equally wrong, in my eyes.

 

Re: Chinese Version of Company of Heroes Zaps Nazi ...

This particular censorship doesn't make any sense at all. Why would China care about having Germany in their video games? Unless they're trying to be sensitive to Germany or something, but that doesn't sound like China to me.

Re: Chinese Version of Company of Heroes Zaps Nazi ...

Becuse the glorious empire dose not play 2nd fiddle in history and was not raped and plundered by japan....

Copyright infringement is nothing more than civil disobedience to a bad set of laws. Let's renegotiate them.

Besides if a day goes by without the government censoring something then somethings wrong.

Re: Chinese Version of Company of Heroes Zaps Nazi ...

Kinda weird that the Chinese want to deny the existence of World War II, especially considering that they fought in the side that won. Even though that was the previous regime, it still is kinda funny, especially since I'm pretty sure that they care about World War II when it comes to their involvement (I believe they got pretty steamed when Japanese history textbooks omitted the Rape of Nanjing).

I've always thought the censorship in Metal Slug was very weird. 

Re: Chinese Version of Company of Heroes Zaps Nazi ...

Because when all other efforts to curb crime fails, blame video games.

Re: Chinese Version of Company of Heroes Zaps Nazi ...

There's noting like pretending the entire thing didn't happen for the sake of expediency...

Re: Chinese Version of Company of Heroes Zaps Nazi ...

 Yeah I don't get this censorship in fact I would think it would be opposite because they get to kick the crap out of them ... oh wait actually I do get it.  China was friends with Nazi Germany until Japan attacked them and basically conqured them and then they couldn't even save themselves they had to wait for the Allied forces to defeat the Axis in order to be free.  With how China likes to gloss over history and basically make it look like their people could never make a mistake (being friendly with Germany while they are conquering everything is probably a big one on top of not being able to defend yourself when Japan invaded) I could see this of course being a problem.  

Re: Chinese Version of Company of Heroes Zaps Nazi ...

Well, the Sino-German cooperation was between Germany and the Kuomintang; which as you should know lost the civil war against the current communist regime.

Re: Chinese Version of Company of Heroes Zaps Nazi ...

Ummmm....why? I know the Chinese Government has a hardon for censorship, but this makes no sense. Obviously this game is set in World War II....hrmmmmmmmmm who were the big enemies Allied Nations fought? China can answer one really really quick (being neighbours and all). I am sure if they looked towards Europe and somehow remember basic history they would know the "Federation" was not one of them.

Censorship of Nazi Germany really makes no sense...

Re: Chinese Version of Company of Heroes Zaps Nazi ...

You know who ELSE wanted to remove all traces of the Nazi regime?

Seriously, this will take all of, what, 5 minutes for dedicated crackers to fix?

Papa MidnightWith GTA5 (to date) failing to even provide indication of a PC release, I'm realising that this might be the first GTA game that I have not played (outside of Chinatown Wars) since the series inception.04/19/2014 - 8:14am

Matthew Wilsonit is a video talking about why certain games/products/consoles do well, and others do not. he back it up with solid research.04/18/2014 - 3:56pm
Andrew EisenI'm not keen on blind links. What is it?04/18/2014 - 3:45pm

MaskedPixelanteNumber 3: Night Dive was brought to the attention of the public by a massive game recovery, and yet most of their released catalogue consists of games that other people did the hard work of getting re-released.04/17/2014 - 8:46pm
MaskedPixelanteNumber 2: If Humongous Entertainment wanted their stuff on Steam, why didn't they talk to their parent company, which does have a number of games published on Steam?04/17/2014 - 8:45pm
MaskedPixelanteNumber 1: When Night Dive spent the better part of a year teasing the return of true classics, having their big content dump be edutainment is kind of a kick in the stomach.04/17/2014 - 8:44pm
Matthew Wilsonhttp://www.giantbomb.com/articles/jeff-gerstmann-heads-to-new-york-takes-questions/1100-4900/ He talks about the future games press and the games industry. It is worth your time even though it is a bit long, and stay for the QA. There are some good QA04/17/2014 - 5:28pm
IanCErm so they shouldn't sell edutainment at all? Why?04/17/2014 - 4:42pm
MaskedPixelanteNot that linkable, go onto Steam and there's stuff like Pajama Sam on the front-page, courtesy of Night Dive.04/17/2014 - 4:13pm
Andrew EisenOkay, again, please, please, PLEASE get in a habit of linking to whatever you're talking about.04/17/2014 - 4:05pm
MaskedPixelanteAnother round of Night Dive teasing and promising turns out to be stupid edutainment games. Thanks for wasting all our time, guys. See you never.04/17/2014 - 3:44pm
Matthew WilsonAgain the consequences were not only foreseeable, but very likely. anyone who understood supply demand curvs knew that was going to happen. SF has been a econ/trade hub for the last hundred years.04/17/2014 - 2:45pm
Andrew EisenMixedPixelante - Would you like to expand on that?04/17/2014 - 2:43pm
MaskedPixelanteWell, I am officially done with Night Dive Studios. Unless they can bring something worthwhile back, I'm never buying another game from them.04/17/2014 - 2:29pm
