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

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.

Andrew EisenGee, I guess putting a former cable industry lobbyist as the Chairman of the FCC wasn't that great of an idea. http://www.nytimes.com/2014/04/24/technology/fcc-new-net-neutrality-rules.html?_r=204/23/2014 - 7:26pm
Andrew EisenIanC - I assume what he's getting at is the fact that once PS3/360 development ceases, there will be no more "For Everything But Wii U" games.04/23/2014 - 5:49pm
Andrew EisenMatthew - Yes, obviously developers will eventually move on from the PS3 and 360 but the phrase will continue to mean exactly what it means.04/23/2014 - 5:45pm
IanCAnd how does that equal his annoying phrase being meaningless?04/23/2014 - 5:09pm
Matthew Wilson@Andrew Eisen the phrase everything but wiiu will be meaningless afer this year becouse devs will drop 360/ps3 support.04/23/2014 - 4:43pm
Andrew EisenFor Everything But... 360? Huh, not many games can claim that title. Only three others that I know of.04/23/2014 - 3:45pm

Andrew EisenI love RPGs but I didn't much care for Tales of Symphonia. I didn't bother with its sequel.04/23/2014 - 11:21am
InfophileIt had great RPGs because MS wanted to use them to break into Japan. (Which had the side-effect of screwing NA PS3 owners out of Tales of Vesperia. No, I'm not bitter, why do you ask?)04/23/2014 - 10:52am
RedMageI'm still disappointed the 360 never broke into Japan either. It had a bevy of great RPGs in the late 2000s.04/23/2014 - 9:48am
