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.

Re: Russia Gives MW2 Cold Shoulder

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.

Matthew Wilsonyou guys going to talk about the Joystiq closing, and Nintendo losing its mind?01/31/2015 - 1:11pm
Andrew EisenNeo - Do you have any evidence of that? Please link.01/31/2015 - 11:43am
Papa MidnightI enjoyed the first Prototype... even if the PC Port was horribly done. Prototype 2, however, far exceeds it. It's actually a decent game in my opinion.01/31/2015 - 11:24am
Wonderkarpreally? I didnt play it because the first one sucked. I didnt even know the main characters black01/31/2015 - 10:38am
Neo_DrKefkaFor those who don't know Prototype 2 is free for the PS3 on PS PLUS! It's a great game that failed due to collusion with activist bloggers before the game was released that people would hate it because the main characters black.01/31/2015 - 9:53am
Wonderkarpalso heard Techraptor is working on a big news piece on indiecade01/31/2015 - 9:47am
WonderkarpAndrew : All I know is he was critical of the block list and said the coding was bad.01/31/2015 - 9:42am

Andrew EisenI only know of him being annoyed that IGDA mistakenly hosted on its anti-harassment tools page a blocklist he was on. What else was he critical of?01/31/2015 - 2:19am
Goth_Skunk@WonderKarp: Given Rosario's outspoken criticisms of the conduct of the IGDA, I would not be one bit surprised if he's being strong-armed into silence in closed-door meetings. He's not towing the party line, after all.01/30/2015 - 11:38pm
MechaTama31EZK: Thank you! (And I was able to see that you did it, only because you did it. How appropriate! :)01/30/2015 - 11:37pm
Matthew Wilson@Monte Nintendo is a Japanese company though. consoles are dead in japan. ps sony is a international company, so they do not much care about Japanese sales much.01/30/2015 - 10:11pm
MonteOnly one generation ago nintnedo had the best selling console. They know their games are still popular and can move their hardware. They just need to focus on better gaming hardware and advertising (their youtube policy not helping)01/30/2015 - 9:58pm
MonteI'd expect Nintendo to keep making consoles, much like the gamecube i doubt nintendo will see the Wii U as a sign of the end for consoles. There are multiple reason why the Wii U failed a big one being marketting.01/30/2015 - 9:55pm
Wonderkarpwhen asked on Twitter, the Chairman said He couldnt comment at this time https://twitter.com/siloraptor/status/561284497275367424. still looking for facts01/30/2015 - 9:41pm
Wonderkarphttp://pressfarttocontinue.com/2015/01/30/igda-puerto-rico-closed/ this is what I have so far01/30/2015 - 9:27pm
Wonderkarpso allegedly, IGDA has closed their Puerto Rico branch. This comes after the Chairman of the Puerto Rico branch was blocklisted by Randi Harper. I'm trying to dig up more info on it. all I have is a link with some info, but its not cited.01/30/2015 - 9:27pm
Andrew EisenSo, kinda like the Wii U just with a GamePad that's portable?01/30/2015 - 9:13pm
Matthew Wilson@AE I hope they do a Ipad/iphone thing. make a home console/handheld where games are playable on both. that is what I would want from them.01/30/2015 - 9:00pm
