Still No Medal of Honor on U.S. Bases

Kotaku has a follow-up reporting that upcoming military shooter reboot Medal of Honor will not be sold on U.S. military bases, in spite of the recent announcement that the opposing force will no longer be referred to as the Taliban. The Taliban label sparked controversy, and was one of the reasons it was originally announced the game would not be sold in U.S. bases, but a spokesperson told them the name change is not inspiring a policy change. "Out of respect to those touched by the ongoing, real-life events presented as a game, Exchanges will not be carrying this product," Army & Air Force Exchange Service Commander Maj. Gen. Bruce Casella told Kotaku. "While we regret any inconvenience this may cause, our position is consistent with the direction stated a month ago. I expect the military families who are authorized to shop the Exchange are aware, and understanding, of the decision not to carry this particular offering."

They are doing immeasurable damage to their brand with this stupidity. This game is looking like it's more concerned about making people angry than making an enjoyable experience.

Stand by your decisions and say fuck off to your critics. You're trying to establish yourself as a hardcore military action game and with the slightest breeze you buckle and run...man the fuck up.

Next week you'll be shaving the beard off that guy on the front cover because people might think he's muslim. Who am I kidding, it's already a fucking joke that you think this brand can handle that guy on your cover.

Seriously, grow a fucking pair.
