Japanese Homefront Censorship

Wired.com has word on plans to censor out references to North Korea and the country's Supreme Leader Kim Jong-il from Homefront, Kaos Studios' upcoming shooter based on a North Korean invasion of the United States of America. They translate a portion of the Japanese website of localizer Spike saying the attackers will be referred to as "A Certain Country to the North," headed up by the "Northern Leader." They say this is to comply with guidelines of the Japanese Computer Entertainment Rating Organization, as they apparently have regulations against references to actual persons and places. Thanks Darth Guybrush.

And I thought Canada had a successful long term plan. I mean, just watch the US economy & debts. Climate change should hurt Canada less than others too, if not even benefit them. And almost everyone likes or at least ignores them. I'd keep those mounties where they are ... for now.

They're just sitting there, looking all harmless and progressive, biding their time, and when you least expect it BAM mountie death squads swarming across the border.
