Conflict: Global Terror

SCi announces Conflict: Global Terror, the fourth edition in the Conflict series, in a departure from previous installments:
SCi announce fourth CONFLICT title: CONFLICT: GLOBAL TERROR

SCi Games, one of Europe's leading games publishers, today announced the title of the next game in the no.1 selling Conflict series, as CONFLICT: GLOBAL TERROR.

CONFLICT: GLOBAL TERROR, due for release in autumn 2005, is set in the very near future and focuses on the increasing threat of terrorism gripping the World. Developed by Bath-based Pivotal Games, CONFLICT: GLOBAL TERROR takes the Conflict brand in a new direction from previous installments of the best-selling games series.

Teaming up once again with the original Desert Storm Delta Force - Bradley, Foley, Connors and Jones - your four men now form part of an elite anti-terrorist unit tasked with minimising the worldwide threat from active global terrorist groups. The game takes place across the world, in a number of different and hostile locations and against a merciless and corrupt enemy; this is your squad's greatest challenge to date.

Ray Livingston, Product Manager for SCi Games said; "Without giving away too much at this early stage, CONFLICT: GLOBAL TERROR has taken all the best bits from the previous three games and added a whole lot more. We are conscious of keeping fans of the previous games happy while at the same time attracting a new audience to the Conflict brand and we're sure the result will do just that."

CONFLICT: GLOBAL TERROR will be available on Sony PlayStationTM 2, Microsoft XboxTM and PC in autumn 2005

List of Terrorist Incidents worldwide -

* 1773 December 16 - Under cover of night, 150 terrorists masquerading as Mohawk Indians passed through a crowd of spectators, went aboard three ships, broke open tea chests, and heaved them into the harbor. As the electrifying news of the Boston "tea party" spread, other seaports followed the example and staged similar acts of terrorism.

These terrorists must be stopped!


I'm not sure if you think the Boston Tea Party was right or wrong so I'll assume you're American and treat you like a child. YES, the Boston Tea Party was a terrorist act. The point is that after a certain passage of time and a large amount of political wrangling terrorist acts can become acts of freedom fighting. You've probably already noticed that the "terrorists" in Iraq consider themselves to be freedom fighters. You see if you GO somewhere foreign and start rolling out barbed wire and napalm, the locals will object. The difficult thing to accept is that neither they or you are wrong. However, as a rule of thumb, if you're in someone else's country and they're trying to kill you... YOU'RE a terrorist and you're up against freedom fighters. Once you understand that it makes illegal invasions a lot easier to classify.

EDIT: italic frenzy...

Plus... it occurs to me due to growing up in Northern Ireland during the 60s and 70s that it seems hypocritical of the US to whine about terrorists in the noughties when they were pouring money into IRA coffers during the 70s+ and particularly sadly that millions are still being given to the INLA which pretty much ceased to exist when the IRA decided they were a pain in the ass during the early 90s and machine-gunned the hierarchy into oblivion over the space of three nights. Understandably, one of the few times I approved of IRA terorism. Then there's the money that comes out of the US from ethnic groups working there but sending money home to seperatist group in their native countries. And and then there's the construction contracts awarded to firms owned by bin Ladens which used to benefit your poster boy.

At some point you're going to have to accept blame, if only to understand why most of the world hates you. But you don't know about that yet because of your media censorship... ahhh wellll...

So Nelson Mandela or Anyone who has ever fought for their independance, freedom or democracy could be classified as a terrorist.

Um, when did we stop classifying Nelson Mandela as a terrorist? he is, was and forever will be a terrorist. He was part of a process that used violence to destabalise a democratic political process. I'm not arguing that it was a universal democratic process but sadly, it's better than what they have now. Remember NM appointed Mbeki and he doesn't believe in the connection between HIV and AIDS. Small point but it's indicative. Africa will always point out how Europe and the US (under Imperial rule initially, but later... hey, reconcile that on your own.) ruined their countries and led to situations where corruption has become a solid part of the political process. They'll point that out for decades. Unfortunately they don't seem to do anything about it. I'm sorry but nobody's been scooping slaves for over a century. Maybe, just maybe, Africa has problems you can't lay at Europe and America's feet. Maybe, corrupt officials should take a share of the blame. Won't happen anytime soon though, because it's just a small part of a culture which relies on corruption to get anything done.

good observation, i agree. Game designers don't have a backbone. Like i was saying in another thread, the top 100 games on gamerankings.com are like 90% sequels. The top 100 films are 90% not sequels. Games never have a message, movies do. Movies have also had a tradition of "challenging the status quo", or at least making us THINK about some seemingly harmless principles and questioning their legitimacy. Spielberg movies do this all the time, even in subtle ways. He did it in Minority Report, and then The Terminal, and now in the upcoming War of the Worlds. Heck, I just watched Michael Mann's Collateral and picked up some funky "love all life" philosophy in the midst of all the stylised killing. Even "The Matrix" goes hippie on us. But like you said, lowest common denominator in the gaming industry.

Kill kill kill. Even worse when it's "our government is killing! Let's simulate that!" Even when our govt is killing for some good reasons, I think it's somewhat irresponsible to simulate that purely for violence fetish reasons. Boy, I must be gettin old and jaded. Because games really do look like "violence porn". They're no different than the Death Wish brand of movies, or any other B-movie with two-bit "action hero" in it, shooting up people everywhere for the heck of it, while teenage boys stare and giggle. Blech! Oh well, back to playin Chronicles of Riddick.. where i'm a bad guy and have no pretensions of masking my violence behind "heroism"

Apathy curve:

that's nice. Now give me the total body count from terrorist activities, and from various "legitimate" state actions, like, oh lets say Nicaragua. They may be numerous, but relatively speaking "terrorist" attacks are not really too devastating.

Somehow, when a nation commits atrocities (and I'm speaking generally here, not only reffering to the US) its all OK, but when the same is done by another group, oh look out, the terrorist menace is coming to get you.

Aside from all that, I just wish game devs would take more than half an hour to come up with stories. I mean, c'mon, the entire plotline for this game could not be more generic if they tried. At least add some depth, Good vs Evil shit like this just appeals to the lowest common denominaator, though I guess that sells games these days..

Not trying to take sides or troll but one countries terrorist is anothers hero, one countries masacre is another countries great military victory.

Some dictionaries define a terrorist as someone who uses violence to force social or political change. So Nelson Mandela or Anyone who has ever fought for their independance, freedom or democracy could be classified as a terrorist.

Sorry but terrorism has been arround since the beginning of time, colonial forces terrorised natives of countless nation, slave traders did the same, anyone who has ever invaded another land for financial, strategic or political reasons can be called a terrorist. It all depends what side of the fence you are on.

All i'm trying to say, is that things are not always black & white. Jumping to conclusions using half the info or one sides info does not make anyone intelligent or an ignoramus. Since we would need to have the highest of security clearance to know the truth about anything these days, I would take any political facts with a grain of salt. Don't forget countries now say that they will do anything to protect themselves and that does not exclude lying, dramatizing, exagerating & spinning the truth.

Look at the rainbow worrior incident, French agents placed a bomb on a green peace boat, cause green peace was against French nuclear tests. Well those terrorist blew up the boat & when New Zealand tried to keep the terrorist in jail no one including Australia, US, Canada stepped up to make sure justice was served. Frence put sanctions against New Zealand exports, crippling the economy...They turned to the worlds super powers and no one did anything so they had to release the terrorist to save their economy.

Enjoy the spelling & grammar mistakes..added a few to keep things interesting lol!!



Anyways this is a gaming site i'll let life teach you the rest.

Didn't take long for Marketers to realize that the 21st century bogeyman for the 1950's "Red Menace" is "Global Terror". Now all we need is for some Joe McCarthy clone to appear on the scene to complete the circle. Wonder who will have the honor of being the new Julius and Ethel Rosenberg.
