I hate Tribes 2. Why? Because the community is much more immature then in Tribes 1.That's true. But I think that the Tribes 1 community suddenly lost its maturity with the release of T2. All hope is lost.
The game was already a year late as it was. How much longer were they supposed to wait?Let's see.. UNTIL IT'S ACTUALLY DONE?
Vocal hard core gamers insist they're easily able to distinguish between what's on the 17" monitor in front of them and the real world. (Of course, the rabid fanaticism of the majority of these gamers tends to overshadow any valid points they make.)Remember kids: Chris Morris not only (thinks he) knows more about gaming than anyone ever born, he (thinks he) knows more about yourself than you do!
Black Hawk Down had a lot of bloodshed and shooting and explosions, but what the hell was it all about? What was the point of all that violence? It was war-porn, all it did was make a self-important action movie about a real situation, violence with no moral and no point, just showing violence for its own sake.Sorry to break it to you, but well, that's what war is.
I've seen books, movies, all about the colombian mafia. And now a game focused on this...They're also coming out with a game about the American mafia I don't think anyone is immune to the entertainment industry taking cues from reality.
PS: Colombia is a nice country, believe me, we have great people here.Indeed. it looks very pretty.
I'm saying that the drug situation is the only aspect of Colombia that's ever shown in the mainstream mediaThat's because they don't have a whole lot else that affects the world. It's something that's newsworthy. If Colombia starts becoming the world leader in genetic research, then they'd start reporting on that.
I think white American males are portrayed in a wide variety of ways aside from as mass-murderersHave you ever seen an FPS where you play a white male who solves things peacefully?
fantasizing about blowing away evil drug-lordsI don't know about you, but Max Payne didn't make me fantasize about blowing away mafia goons.
And what is so wrong with (North) Americans that they want to use so many drugs in the first place?Correct me if i'm wrong, but this game doesn't seem to be about North America at all.
use of revolutionary AIIf they come through with this alone, I'm buying the game. Good physics aren't anything new since there's already the Havoc engine out. But AI is something that has been mediocre and predictable in FPS's for far far far too long.
Can you imagine ANY Colombian national NOT being offended at this?Yes. I can. Unless you're stereotyping Columbians and saying they're all uptight.
They're exploiting the desperate situationUh-huh... sure. And Ridley Scott was exploiting Somalia in Black Hawk Down, right?
