Rendition: Guantanamo

Get Ready For Gitmo: The Video Game on CBS News reveals development of Rendition: Guantanamo, in the works for PC and Xbox 360 at Scottish developer T-Enterprise. A Teaser Trailer on the official website offers a look at someone sitting around a cell, but according to an article on Deadline Scotland there is more planned from gameplay, as it describes playing as terrorism suspects trying to escape from the prison. This is obviously courting controversy, they say the game is set in January 2010 because that is when they expect the prison to close, with the developers saying: "We are making a statement. We did not want Guantanamo to be forgotten." The CBS News article focuses on the participation of Moazzam Begg, a British Muslim who was held for three years in the American military prison who claims he was tortured during his detainment.

Saying that "Muslims" are responsible for something is like saying that "Christians" are responsible for these murders. I don't think they should all be tarred with the same brush.
Absolutely right, well put.

Let's do 1,000 911's on other countries and not think twice about it! That'll probably help.

They know that there are brainwashed Americans that will line up to buy such a game.

We ought to just behead our prisoners with a dull machete on webcam just like the Muslims do.
Fanatics of all religious persuasions seem to think they have the right to kill people they disagree with. Witness the recent killings of doctors who perform abortions by people who think their religious beliefs trump all. Saying that "Muslims" are responsible for something is like saying that "Christians" are responsible for these murders. I don't think they should all be tarred with the same brush.

If you don't like where gaming is heading, stop giving your money to the people who are taking it in that direction.

Perhaps you should read up in the alleged prisoner treatment at Gitmo, Train.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Guantanamo_Bay_detention_camp

Not only does the military do it, but then the CIA steps in and does what they want as well.

Not that I want to play a game where I am a Gitmo prisoner. I'd rather play one where I am shooting at them on the battlefield.

Jesus fuck people, we're not actually TORTURING anybody down in Gitmo, unless you consider placing a Koran in a toilet to be a form of torture. Waterboarding is bad and shouldn't be practiced, but at least it's done extremely rarely.

Everyone's getting this confused with Abu Ghraib, which was shut down and those involved were prosecuted. Maybe not EVERYBODY was punished who should have, and that sucks, but it's life in an imperfect society. The fact is that the military doesn't go around torturing people. We treat our prisoners better than just about anybody else.

Hopefully, unlike real life, we will be able to stop US military personnel from sodomizing young boys and killing detainees.

well their latest flash game is apparently "[Susan] Boyle's Breakdown", so I think we have an indication on what kind of a company this is.
