Greenpeace Invades Ship Simulator Extremes

August 24, 2010 -

Game developer VSTEP is putting a special Greenpeace campaign in its upcoming ship simulation game, Ship Simulator Extremes. The Greenpeace campaign is what the company calls "one of three realistic campaigns" that will be featured in the game when it is released later this month.

The campaign lets players sail Greenpeace vessels like the Esperanza to confront various anti-environmental forces and evildoers including polluters who dump oil and illegal toxic waste into the ocean, whale hunting vessels and more. Players will also be able to take control of the Rainbow Warrior III a full year before its actual completion as well. Finally, the game will feature "nine historical Greenpeace missions" complete with full motion documentary footage and interviews with Greenpeace Captain Pete Wilcox as a reward.

For a sneak peek of the Greenpeace part of the game, check out this video. Ship Simulator Extremes will be released on August 27 at retail and through various digital distribution channels.

How about a game where Greenpeace makes brown people starve to death?  They like to dress in hazmat suits, invite the press, and then destroy acres of crops in 2nd-3rd world countries.  I'm sure all those brown people are happy to die so long as they know they won't be eating any genetically-modified crops or supporting synthetic fertilizers!  Greenpeace FTW!

The potential for sequels is there too- since so much of the developing world depends on modern farm technology for food (synthetic fertilizer and engineered crops), there are plenty of crops to destroy and misguided brown people for Greenpeace to let starve to death.

Re: Greenpeace Invades Ship Simulator Extremes

What are you talking about?

Re: Greenpeace Invades Ship Simulator Extremes

Greenpeace opposes the use of modern farm technology and has even gone so far as to destroy crops themselves (for the press).  Most of the developing world is fed only due to modern agriculture.  However, these white-boys with dreadlocks & bongos are more concerned with some kind of arbitrary anti-corporate philosophy than the needs of the starving people of the developing world.  Hence, Greenpeace is a racist organization.

Re: Greenpeace Invades Ship Simulator Extremes

Greenpeace was destroying open-air crop tests in the UK at one point, with the idea that such tests would (by their nature) contaminate other local crops since you would get cross polination.

Which kinda makes sense since they were tests that if everything is ok, no problem, but if they found issues with the crop, it would be too late since the nature of the test allowed the crop to spread into the wild and thus would be mixing with food crops.

That being said, while I can kinda follow their logic, I think their fear is annoyingly overblown.  However, no one starved because of these actions.. they were small scale tests designed for research and getting approvals.  I doubt any of the test fields had any food go into the general supply (since it was not approved for even animal consumption yet).

Well, at least it's not those Sea Shepherd douchebags...

Re: Greenpeace Invades Ship Simulator Extremes

I was thinking something similiar.  Greenpeace.. while I do not always agree with them.. I can respect.  The Sea Shepherds... way to take a noble cause (and crime) and turn it into a joke....

Andrew EisenI think TT Games gets away with multiple LEGO games a year because they're all based on different franchises. If there were two or three LEGO Star Wars games every year, I think people would feel the same fatigue as they do with Assassin's Creed.03/31/2015 - 6:40pm
Andrew EisenIn other words, a hero is male because that's the default. A hero is female because of a gender-related reason. So, male heroes are for everyone. Female heroes are for women.03/31/2015 - 5:32pm
Andrew EisenHer point is that "When archetypal fantasy heroes in games are overwhelmingly portrayed as men, it reinforces the idea that... women should be able to empathize with male characters but that men needn’t be able to identify with women’s stories."03/31/2015 - 5:30pm
Andrew EisenDaniel - She doesn't say that in any of the TvW videos and I doubt she's said elsewhere that all games with male protagonists are male power fantasies. Anyway, you seem to be conflating two different ideas.03/31/2015 - 5:30pm
MaskedPixelantehttps://twitter.com/Yuriofwind/status/583028257890635776 Oh snap!03/31/2015 - 5:14pm
WymorenceFor me it just boils down to the fact that, even at a giant company, when a game comes out annually it just gives it a vibe of being rushed out the door. And god knows Unity sucked some major lemur with all its bugs...03/31/2015 - 4:22pm
PHX CorpI launched my spotify account today, and I kinda went a little overboard with adding music03/31/2015 - 3:59pm
Sora-ChanCon't. Games like AC are a pain to someone like me who likes to play games in order. So when a game gets too many releases too quickly, it puts me off. Only exceptions are games that have no interconnected underlying stories like the FF games.03/31/2015 - 2:53pm
Sora-ChanWikipedia has rarely let me down on matters like this. But yeah... AC needs a break.. like two.. or three... or eight years.03/31/2015 - 2:51pm
ConsterThere's 9 already?! I think I played 1, 2, and the ones inbetween 2 and 3.03/31/2015 - 2:23pm
Sora-ChanCon't There are now Nine... of just the main entries into the series. There are 13 more in the "other games" department.03/31/2015 - 2:15pm
Sora-ChanI tried to get into AC. Was having a decent time with the first one, at which point they had already released three titles. Then a fourth came out... then a fifth... the wall kept growing before I could finish the first.03/31/2015 - 2:14pm
Daniel LewisI think ubisoft should give AC a break before it's milked to death,and i'm a big fan of the games03/31/2015 - 1:15pm
PHX Corphttp://www.polygon.com/2015/3/31/8320017/assassins-creed-chronicles-china-india-russia Assassin's Creed Chronicles is now a trilogy, goes to China, India and Russia03/31/2015 - 1:11pm
Daniel LewisThe only thing said i disagree with is the final quote on Men's experiences are seen to be universal but women are gendered,though doesn't anita say that games with male protagonists are male power fantasies,so in turn both are gendered03/31/2015 - 1:08pm
Daniel Lewisi found the video to be much better than any of the TvW series and it's about time the positive women are put in the spotlight03/31/2015 - 1:06pm
Daniel LewisSo feministfrequency released a positive female character video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gXmj2yJNUmQ03/31/2015 - 1:05pm
Daniel LewisI think the guy who made the direct leak said it was an april fools joke when a real one was announced03/31/2015 - 12:43pm
MaskedPixelanteNo way Nintendo would let information like that get out. Remember, they shut down a memoir about the localization of Earthbound by enforcing a 20 year old NDA on the author.03/31/2015 - 12:42pm
Andrew EisenOh, there's definitely a Nintendo Direct tomorrow, but that beat-by-beat recap is almost certainly bogus.03/31/2015 - 12:20pm
