Joe Staten? I believe they mispelled his name, isn't it Stalin?
When GWB revises the tax code he ought to get even with Bill Gates for this crap
jeepers, creepers..this guy needs to read Laura Ingraham's book and Laura should add a new chapter "Shut Up and Code".
I think the aliens, with their superior technology, should find away to eradicate the violent and xenophobic humans without causing casualties. Isn't there a intergalactic organization that will mediate? Can't we find a solution?
By their very nature, video games are conservative - better players score higher and win more. Also, any shoot-em-up implicitly supports RKBA. Let them play.
im playing that tonight,HALO 1 was awesome,loads of fun
Next you're going to tell me Ender's Game is also a slight towards W, even though Card has been outspoken in his support of our President.
I'm not a fan of FPS games so this is a non-issue for me, but it occurs that if this Mr. Staten thinks he's making a big statement that he's a) loopy and b) going to be ignored by 99.99% of purchasers, who will see the ability to play as the aliens as a fun multiplayer option.
Too late. Bush has already won.
And I won't be buying Age of Empires III if it comes out.
Uh, bud, how about a little perspective here, it's just a video game. Most of the school kids I know are clueless bozos. They wouldn't know a civics lesson from a bicycle seat.
Hey Microsoft. How dumb are you people? Who was it that tried to break you up? Who wouldn't accept the settlement deal? How much have you fools been bothered in the last 4 years? Fools!
Just wanted to get that out there before we have another silly boycott call.
I'm not sure how he distinguishes his version of "Bush hate" from the Islamic jihad. Based on this article, I might interpret it as a condemnation of Islam.
Believe me I see way beyond the politics of this game. My kids love it and It really doesn't matter to them if the aliens are good guys or bad guys... People read way too much into things... If an Alien shoots at me I am not going to try and reason with it.... see I am not a liberal and neither is the alien.
Ridiculous! My son was a beta tester for this game and MS wouldn't do something as stupid as this.
