Russia Gives MW2 Cold Shoulder

November 16, 2009 -

The Russian government is apparently not a fan of how the country is represented in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, as all copies of the console version of the game have been recalled from stores.

Infinity Ward has also released a patch for the Russian PC version of the game which will remove the “airport” mission from the game entirely reports HellForge, citing a Russian gaming website. The mission in question features a civilian slaughter carried out at the behest of a Russian terrorist named Makarov.

Re-edited console versions of the game, once given the go ahead by Russian censors, could be introduced to stores within a month.

I really feel all this MW2 crap is government and news groups being the bully on the playground. Less this has a point, and more of "hey, look at me I can do this".

Re: Russia Gives MW2 Cold Shoulder

Did I miss something somewhere?  Have worldwide IQ's dropped rapidly? This is a game of FICTION! So Russia is going to enforce this stupidity on BOOKS and MOVIES as well right? RIGHT?!?!

Re: Russia Gives MW2 Cold Shoulder

Uncle Tom's Cabin is also "only" fiction. So why bother with its content, right?

And, yeah, you missed something. I wonder what you and your kind would say if any Russian game depicted your very own country arming and training those very same terrorists in Afghanistan they are now fighting.

ZAR.

Re: Russia Gives MW2 Cold Shoulder

Also, Uncle Tom's Cabin is avaliable in many US bookstores.  So your statement further falls flat.  I don't know how you do things, but I prefer the "I don't agree with what you say but I'll defend your right to say it" over your way.

I mean Austin is still allowed to speak afterall.

Erik, you read my words and you don't understand what I'm saying. And on that basis you try to lecture me?

ZAR.

"I wonder what you and your kind would say if any Russian game depicted your very own country arming and training those very same terrorists in Afghanistan they are now fighting."

There is a game like that.  Do you want to know what it's called?  It's called Modern Warfare 2.  The person who is behind all of the terroristic acts in Modern Warfare 2?  An American.  So perhaps before you open your gob you should get some perspective first.

Re: Russia Gives MW2 Cold Shoulder

I wonder what the Russians would say if someone made a movie about the way the Russians REALLY fought the war in Afghanistan.  You know, killing livestock and children and women from their helicopters, setting boobytraps aimed specifically at children, raping the locals.

Oh, but don't let that get in the way of your 'America is evil' tangent.  We gave them the tools to fight back, put a stop to the butchers, and to kick them out of their land.  And then, due to the fact that no one in our government really seemed to give much of a fuck about the country anymore, we abandoned them while they rebuilt, providing a great place to foster hatred for America. 

By the way, that training?  Helped a bunch of illiterate people demolish one of the two superpowers, and helped them reclaim their country.  Oh, and it also helped lead to the fall of the USSR, which you benefitted from whether you know it or not.

Re: Russia Gives MW2 Cold Shoulder

Wounded Knee, My Lai etc. etc. etc.? Not part of your history book, eh?

Being lectured by you is really an honour! You're not only a complete ignoramus, you're also proud of it.

And isn't it strange, how you try to push the Fox-News version of things as often as possible? But maybe that's why you came here in the first place.

And you certainly wouldn't find Russia on the map, not even if your own LIFE depended on it.

ZAR.

Well, at least, with $350,000,000 in sales and counting, it's not like the Russian market will make all the difference between breaking even and not.

Sora-ChanAhh, it's just weird seeing someone's post all of a sudden have replies from days prior before it was posted due to that.09/30/2014 - 5:49pm
MechaTama31sora: I broke the ordering intentionally, as AE's and my conversation had squeezed the text boxes down to be quite slim. I replied to an earlier post of his instead of the one I was actually replying to.09/30/2014 - 5:46pm
MechaTama31So, 9 would have been the good one, but they are skipping it to do two crap ones in a row?09/30/2014 - 5:41pm
Sora-ChanSo, judging from the poll post for #gamergate, it looks like too many thread replies breaks the ordering of posts, as seen with the recent post from Infophile.09/30/2014 - 5:31pm
Andrew EisenOr no! It wasn't Y3K compliant. Microsoft thought it best to super future proof its OS and skipped straight to 10 which is Y3K compliant!09/30/2014 - 5:01pm
Andrew EisenJust tell them it wasn't Y2K compliant.09/30/2014 - 5:00pm
Craig R.Looking forward to having to explain to coworkers down the road what ever happened to 9 *sigh*09/30/2014 - 4:57pm
Craig R.2k was crap. XP was solid, 7 is good, 8.1 is actually really good once you make it look like 7 :)09/30/2014 - 4:52pm
Sora-Chan@MP As someone who has used each version of windows since 3.1... I prefer Vista over 7 for various reasons. The only thing I give 7 over Vista is preformance. They really screwed up a bunch of things when making 7. Also, XP was a pain. 2k was better.09/30/2014 - 4:13pm
Jessy Hart@E. Zachary Knight Is that show called Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures?09/30/2014 - 3:34pm
IanCWin 8 isn't bad, it just can't decide whether to be a desktop OS or a tablet OS.09/30/2014 - 2:40pm
IanCI think its a way of getting round giving it free to Win 8 users...09/30/2014 - 2:39pm
MaskedPixelanteWindows alternates between bad and good versions. XP was good, Vista sucked, 7 was good, 8 sucked, therefore 10 will suck, QED.09/30/2014 - 2:18pm
E. Zachary KnightPerhaps they are calling it "10" because on a scale of 1-10 of how awesome it is, it is a clear 10.09/30/2014 - 2:06pm
E. Zachary KnightTo be fair. Microsoft has had a bit of a numbering issue lately. What with going from XBox 360 to XBox One.09/30/2014 - 2:06pm
NeenekoI remember the pac man show from the 80s, but I was more picturing this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fWL6j0SvqV0 which is probably more source accurate then Tetris will be...09/30/2014 - 1:42pm
Andrew EisenThat is so dumb. That would be like Sony saying, "Hey guys! The next Playstation is going to be so awesome, so far beyond what the PS4 can do that we're going to call it the Playstation 6!"09/30/2014 - 1:42pm
