>Portrays Constitutionalist as the enemy and hill billy rednecks
>You play as a police officer disarming 'extreme right' militias
>The same militia is using Gadsen flags and Come and Take It flags
This is fucking terrifying, and the fact any American would buy this product is disgraceful. I will never use Origin again. I will never buy another EA product. This is shameful that the company would release such content with anti-gun and anti-Constitution undertones.
top lel. Also, cry more. Not all people with a Gadsen flag are hill billy ultranationalist racists, but most hill billy ultranationalist racists have a Gadsen flag
Anti-milita vidya has existed for ages
It doesn't fucking matter if they are Nationalist,Libertarians or even Nazis. The game has a political motive to portray ANY militia with that context of ''evil far-right nazi libertarian bible thumping bigots''.
Fuck this game.
We may agree on some things (guns mainly) but for the most extent, 90% of the so-called "Constitutionalists" I've encountered so far have been closeted or not so closeted WN's. Only reason I don't sport a Gadsen flag myself: I don't want to get lumped in with those fuckers.
Sorry, but they ARE my enemies.
Who the fuck cares?
You sound like some 13 year old on tumblr going on about the "problematic" portrayal of black people as gangbangers in a game.
Pretty much every group in the world appears as a caricatured villian at some point, anarchists are fair game as well
>everyone complaining about the militarization of police and their trigger happy attitudes toward US citizens
>game comes out where you play a militarized cop killing US citizens
EA, can you do ANYTHING right?
>he doesn't know the difference between constitutionalists and threepers
/v/ please fuck off.
This, I remember another great game where you fight against a militia for the military but then by the end your like hey those government guys are dicks.
>Both believe the Constitution
>Both believe to preserve the right to bear arms
>Both believe the federal government is being overreaching
>Both believe a right to self association and self determination
Glad you used a trip, gotta use them filters.
>That fucking comments section
These people are allowed to vote
lel why the fuck do people care it's a video game where you shoot people
not a particularly good one either, it's not doing as well as ea hope
who the fuck plays battlefield for the story anyways
wish i could find that post about youtube comments
It's just like some movie portraying gun laws, or guns, or gun owners in a shitty light- they have a right to do so, but I have a right to not buy their product, and recommend that others not buy their product for whatever reason.
Hardline was going to be shit to begin with, everyone knew that, looks like they decided rather than try to make a good game, they'd play the controversy angle for press.
where is the info that they are constitutionalists, is there some source you didn't post?
Honestly all kinds of assholes use the gadsen, I don't automatically feel a need to defend anyone who use it.
Jesus Christ what the fuck is wrong with people, having read those top comments with 50-100 likes I genuinely feel dead inside.
These are bleak times /k/. I really don't want stuff like this to continue to the point where freedom becomes universally scorned. I don't want things to slowly heat up to a civil war.
Promise me we'll never surrender. I would die fighting for the true freedoms and principles that established our great nation furthered the progress of mankind. Promise me I'm not alone.
Sure, they absolutely do- there are fucking shitbags in every political ideology- however, that was notable because it was so rare.
What about a Fast and Furious mission, where the ATF sold guns to cartels and then said cartels used those guns to kill your partner? Or a Chicago gangbanger mission, where you look at the aftermath of black-on-black crime?
>What's the difference ¿
support rule by the Constitution of the United States, in other words rule of law, but not corrupt tyranny.
support no rule by anyone and if someone tells you what to do you kill them, in other words wasteland rules.
I'm so angry about negative portrayals in videogames how could this happen??
When will the bullying of white people stop??
EA doesnt seem to understand that the demographic for this kind of game is angry white nerds who visit b and k and dislike niggers and white, black or otherwise military and cops who hate the ever loving fuck out of the government
Ever since mass effect 3 they've been pushing for things like gay and bi characters and making bf4 gay pride events to look like they're actually progressive. Its just PR bullshit
>play battlefield 4
>hear false analogy about Amer. Revolution and war in Iraq
>"They're terrorists.(said of terrorists in iraq.)"
>"Why do you think the Amer revolution was about dummy."
>Watch Red Dawn (2012)
>Hear another false analogy.
>"We're the terrorists now."
>Cause jihadis who terrorize (mostly muslims themselves) and want an Islamic law is the same as you killing foreign military personnel in your land.
oh no they didn't portray my ideology right, my feelings
Hence why I just addressed it in the context of a mission, not necessarily the overarching campaign story.
Like I said before, this likely was to drum up controversy media attention, as the game didn't have anything special about it otherwise.
Constitutionalists ARE terrorists though.
We think we should have the same rights as the government. If politicians can ban auto guns but let their guards carry them, that hypocrisy can only grow.
Seriously, how dare they push out this blatantly anti white agenda, we must boycott videogames forever! No other group is subject to such slander in the media
>Muslim Arab extremist, directly responsible for the assassination of the Vice President of the U.S and collaborating with Russian terrorist planning to nuke the entire Eastern Seaboard of the U.S are just as bad as militias portrayed as all-white,racist,redneck,hillbillies to push a political narrative to disarm the population
What the fuck?
If you can't see how this is blatant propaganda placement/agitprop, you're either deluded, or an outright shill.
How much more obvious can the agenda be at this point? This is weaponized media, pointed at the heads of whomever the govt deems to be a dissident.
Whatever, it's a fucking game. Not the first time militias and US Citizens have been portrayed in a negative fashion (Counter Strike for example). Lots of kids that play video games are now becoming gun owners, including me. Not 3 years ago I was playing Battlefield BC2 and Halo and now I'm an avid gun owner though I am morally liberal when it comes to most things. Yea, there are groups in America that are tarnishing the Gasden Flag, just pretend that these guys you're shooting at are murderers or criminals... our better yet don't buy it at all.
>people want gays/blacks/women in a game
>IT DOESNT MATTER WHO CARES VIDEOGAMES ARE NOT REAL LIFE
>conservatives portrayed negatively
>OH NO VIDEOGAMES INFLUENCE REAL LIFE EVERYONE WILL HATE GUNS NOW
i dont give a fuck about limbaugh, i give a fuck that they're taking different aspects of who i consider myself to be and sublelty portraying me as a terrorist to people to young to make the distinction between propaganda and reality.
remember when eric holder said he wanted to "brainwash" people into thinking guns are bad, well guess what this is...
tl;dr i care and im mad because im being made the target
They're fully within their rights to make this but it is just a part of a bigger picture of media brainwashing to make gun owners/constitutionalists/pro-freedom white americans/etc. Look crazy while we should be focusing on how the US is looking like a military occupied police state and how SWAT is used for small tax infractions, small amounts of drugs or at the wrong house completely.
The fucked up part is the current wave of dangerous use of law enforcement in this country is only getting worse and worse and it is all payed with our tax money against our will along with shit like the surveillance program that watches and listens to all of us.
But the media is turning it around - if you're against this government police state takeover, you're a terrorist! You believe in enforcing the constitution like the founders intended? Racist right wing terrorist nutjob! Gun control! Free speech control! Dangerous!
Meanwhile cops shoot innocent people quite often, MRAPs are patrolling the streets and cops haven't been reaching so far for power in my lifetime.
It is truly scary when they manipulate what's going on to make us look like the bad guys. Gun owners are becoming the evil in this nation as hitler blamed the jews for germany's misfortunes.
Don't believe me? Look how the media portrays gun owners or anyone identifying as a militia. Obama and every liberal claimed that 90% of americans wanted gun registration. They blatantly lied to everyone's face.
So yes, it fuckin sucks that they're using tools to make gun owners look like terrorists.
Yeah that was annoying as hell but im talking about how they do all these kinds of things to appeal to liberals with the gay pride events and characters and anti constitutionalists etc.
>all those comments
>why does it even matter, guys?
>it's just a video game
You're right. None of it matters at all. In fact, next game, you get to play as a member of the special forces in a suburban Missouri city, annihilating violent thugs of darker complexion. There will even be a bonus DLC where your character goes on trial for murder and gets acquitted!
I'm so scared, what am I gonna do? Oh wait gun rights have been expanded tremendously in the last decade in spite of people like Obama. So again, I'm here to laugh at all of you jumping at shadows.
Well the game got delayed to March, which seems like a good thing at first glance.
But the beta was full of balance issues
Heist game mode heavily favors criminals
Medics have the ability to revive themselves now once after their first deaths
Weapons are back to being unbalanced and shit
Netcode is still piss poor and the game is well into production even though Battlefield 4 has only recently begun to have improved netcode
And people can't get frustrated if something they feel passionately about is portrayed in a negative light?
Personally, it's pretty clear that it's just a PR move. Might have some ideological push behind it, but not necessarily.
>>people want gays/blacks/women in a game
>>IT DOESNT MATTER WHO CARES VIDEOGAMES ARE NOT REAL LIFE
I honestly don't care, I don't know why you're projecting that on me. I don't care if games were all Black,female,lesbian,strong womyn protagonist, I just don't like blatant anti-2nd Amendment propaganda.
I want this to be true more than I want Jlaw videos.
This is what the original Rainbow Six Patriots was supposed to be about. You are an elite federal agent operator fighting against a militia of "right wing terrorists", but end up joining them.
The you know whos got wind of that, and shitcanned it on the spot. Now we have that Rainbow Six Siege abomination, which is basically a no knock warrant simulator.
Black man and Mexican cop fight the evil white anarchists. How surprising.
Say what you want but this is actually the most effective way the antis can attack us. I've always considered shooter games a great ally of ours, because it made young kids interested in guns. Now any young impressionable kid who plays this game will automatically associate the Gadsden flag with the evil white racist gun owners.
Seriously, the subliminal effect is very real here. Just look at how many times the Gadsden flag is portrayed. This is so obviously agenda-driven that it's ridiculous. If stuff like this continues, a whole generation of young people could grow up with a strong association between pro-gun symbols and evil.
>And people can't get frustrated if something they feel passionately about is portrayed in a negative light?
Well you guys spend 24 hours a day bitching about Anita, so apparently not
>lol thin ass skin lolbergtarians can't handle other peoples opinions
>you guys are just as bad as liberals
I'm not sure you really understand what libertarianism is about.
It's less about
>HURRR YOU CAN'T FEEL SLIGHTED
and more about not having the government get involved in personal disputes of that nature.
>None of it matters at all. In fact, next game, you get to play as a member of the special forces in a suburban Missouri city, annihilating violent thugs of darker complexion. There will even be a bonus DLC where your character goes on trial for murder and gets acquitted!
Lol! EA doesn't have the balls
>The you know whos got wind of that, and shitcanned it on the spot.
It's a conspiracy guyz da joos
Or maybe it's not 2011 anymore and nobody cares about the occupy movement anymore you fucking retard
stop building up hype for shit AAA games aimed at lowest common denominator trailer trash like yourself
There are two ends of the political spectrum, at the right is Anarchy, at the left is Totalitarianism.
Why the fuck have I literally never heard the term left-wing extremist? Why is this socially acceptable?
>EA wants to pander to demographics for no reason than to pander and be"progressive"
>EA gets called out on doing so, SJW hail EA as heroes in the fight against rape culture
>EA plants flag squarely in the cop-statist camp and portrays constitutionalists as racist Nazi terrorists
>white washes systematic racism of police themselves
You're right, there's no reason anyone should be mad about this.
At least we stop at saying EA sucks, not that they should change their game to support muh special snowflakes.
I think this may backfire. The first time I ever saw the Gadsden Flag was when it was being used by Solidus in Metal Gear Solid:2. That actually got me interested in it, even though Solidus was portrayed as a terrorist, and evil and all that.
>>MFW Solidus was right all along. RIP in peace, Mr. President.
>how EA is trying to look like they are pro liberal
It's a free market. Public opinion has swung in support of gay marriage, particularly among young people. Makes sense to appeal to them.
>media portrayal of real life political movements, ideologies, and groups
Here is a problem though. Most people are assuming the bad guys are constitutionalists. Why?
Because OP said so. But OP does not back up this claim. I watched the video, and they do not mention the constitution or anything of the sort. OP just took offense because of the Gadsen flag, even though constitutionalists aren't the only ones who use that flag.
If you can't distinguish between the casual "racism" people use as a form of humor here because it's so taboo elsewhere, and actual hate for people of different races, then I don't want to be on your side either. Learn to take a fucking joke.
This thread reeks of blue pill and red pill, you loosers should be ashamed
>implying this is anything to do with race
>implying this isn't just blatant anti-tea party propaganda
Those fucking top comments though
Yes but im just saying this situation is relevant to their pro gay PR because both are in an attempt to look pro liberal. I could give less of a fuck about what they do with their image but this situation is relevant.
They're "constitutionalists" because they have a Gadsen flag, are white and have guns.
In reality, they're an ultranationalist threeper militia that wants "freedom" but only for the chosen few they deem worthy of it.
You people are more or less admitting you associate with such totalitarian militarists.
No, I didn't just 'assume because OP'. The demo clip has been out for months, I watched it long ago.
That demo, and other comments/shit show, make it abundantly clear to me that it's meant to be a constitutionalist/tea party group.
I'm not saying this game will have a profound impact. Movies do affect the world, by the way.
If they were all black, all latino, all mixed race, all gay, all what-the-fuck ever, and were portrayed the way the group in question was, I would take it the same way.
unless you think only white people can respect and admire the constitution.
>In reality, they're an ultranationalist threeper militia that wants "freedom" but only for the chosen few they deem worthy of it.
You use those words, I don't think you know what they mean.
Fuck EA's shit. The only game studios I'll ever buy from are Valve and GSC.
>russian communist get killed all the time in shooters
>lol fukin commies die
>people with the gadson get killed in a shitty shooter
>b-but muh leftist developers
Explain this shit please.
Media does leave an impression. movie, music whatever
How about thug nigga rap songs and its poisonous fangs that has left a negative impact in black culture. "KILL nigga, beat nigga, Fuck 10 Sluts, n they on ma dick, Fuck a bitch, Gold chain on ma dick"etc..
Tell me young blk men hasn't been impressed?
Just because a form of media has guns doesn't translate to people supporting the inherent right to own them.
I think it's fallacious to assume that just because those genres are popular, that that will translate to future generations.
They can get people intererested in guns, but they can also 'fill the role' for some people
>i have guns in a video game, why do i need them irl :^)
But there will be a remastered homeworld soon.
Why are amerifats such gigantic cuckold faggots?
More conditioning. More psyops. More preparation of the social battlespace. Nothing novel about it.
A source? For my interpretation of what I've seen over the months? Or did you miss the
>make it abundantly clear to me
I'm not trying to change your opinion on the topic, I'm just saying that things I have seen point me in one direction.
If you view it differently, fine. But that's your interpretation.
lmao all that fedora-/v/
one doesn't even make games they just scam people with free to play games while assfucking you with DRM and the other doesn't exist
it's like you're really still in 2011
>I like to lie out of my ass because I suck donkey dick all day long.
That's all I read from you, you are a piece of shit who is the problem
>his just means we have to take initiative and buy the game
>buy the game
Congratulations, the EA PR worked! A hate buy is still a buy, and will only encourage similar 'controversy' in the future.
>tfw I was kind of excited for this game
DICE can go fuck themselves
GSC is long dead, Stalker 2 died with it, and it's time to give up hope, anon. I'm sorry.
Everybody remember in that COD game a while ago where you played as russian terrorists massacring unarmed civilians in an airport? Same shit, it's a scam designed to make you want to buy the game by manipulating you. How is this not apparent?
I'm talking news and online media, modern war shooters tend to just rely on some imaginary war with Russia, it's never emphasized that you're fighting against extreme leftism, not to mention they're usually good guys in WW2 games
It's just disturbing that the term right-wing extremist is the new media buzzword commonly used to vilify constitutionalists, with far leftism being perfectly okay.
Played the beta, thought it was somewhat interesting and the urban combat and muli-storey fighting with the buildings was cool, and the environmental damage was nice. Then EA went and did this and I'm wondering how bad this could get
>The Militia Movement
Members of all of those groups have worked to promote the 2nd amendment.
you might not agree with them, but they all have. You saying that they haven't just shows your lack of knowledge on the subject.
Yes...but the game is about an ultranationalist threeper militia that wants "freedom" but only for the chosen few they deem worthy of it. (Not that guy, but he says it well.) Just like not all Christians are Westboro Baptist lunatics, the Gadsen flag doesn't represent all parties that salute it, BUT in this game you fight one subset that are your archtypical right-wing nutjobs.
>non lethal tazer
>arresting high value perps
this is a battlefield game, its supposed to be about battle, WTF?
also, the creative director narrating the demo sounds like a SJW faggot
>most people these days too fucking retarded to make any conscious decisions of worth.
And this is why /pol/ and /k/ can never get along. You fuckers rant about freedom but what you really want is a dictatorship that magically agrees with everything you like.
somone should send the info to Fox News they'll be the only ones who would report it.
>Yes...but the game is about an ultranationalist threeper militia that wants "freedom" but only for the chosen few they deem worthy of it.
Its a subtle message that all those who are pro-constitution are speaking through their teeth and are just racist. Basically the democrat line.
Just a PR controversy angle, nothing new.
I'm sure there is a little ideological motivation behind it as well, I mean, the suits/devs aren't going to want to demonize a group that they agree with.
But yes, mostly just PR shit.
Huh? Dont you live in the states? Most blk 'intellectuals' and other wellknowns( blkpoliticians or stars) always talk about that 'nigga nigga nigga' and violence in rap and its influence on young blk males
"or google 'criticism of gangsta rap'"
>Some commentators (for example, Spike Lee in his satirical film Bamboozled) have criticized gangsta rap as analogous to black minstrel shows and blackface performance, in which performers – both black and white – were made up to look African American, and acted in a stereotypically uncultured and ignorant manner for the entertainment of audiences.
>everyone on /pol/ is one person.
Polls have shown time and time again libertarians and natsocs are tied with around 30% board share each. /pol/ gets a lot of shit, yeah, but there is a genuine diversity of ideological thought there.
This game looks like such fucking shit.
Like, jesus DICE, please learn to innovate, the graphics look as though they're from 2009, and the gameplay is so redundant and boring, as always.
Big media is so fucking depressing and disappointing nowadays, fuck.
>games being used to brainwash the kids
Nothing new here, all I can say is be prepared because in a couple years or days shit is going to get very real and that little boy Timmy who likes to play video games such as battlefield is going to be hunting us down in the future for disobeying our Fascist Government.
> mfw I own a Gasden flag and a "Come and Take it" flag
> mfw they are literally on the wall next to me
> mfw I do not give a fuck about this
Really? Don't be such a butthurt nigger, educate people about firearms and show them they're fun and interesting.
> inb4 TRAITOR JEW KIKE GET OUT
heheheh fuck you.
MUH. FUCKING. FEELINGS.
> one Gasden Flag
>meh, why is everyone sperging out about this
>unironic use of "Mexicans doing blah blah", Gasden Flag on back of dude's shirt
> Alright maybe this is a little over the top, but whatever
>every room and building has a good Damn Gasden Flag on it
Holy fucking shit, why is the Gasden Flag suddenly a symbol of extremism for these fucks? I consider myself liberal and I have a Gasden Flag somewhere in my house.
you don't have to get upset about it, that's fine. But similarly, some people are concerned about it. Which is also fine.
>heheheh fuck you.
Ah, so you are fine with people negatively portraying individuals such as your self, but are flustered that people are upset about said portrayal? Interesting
/pol/ isn't some faceless monoculture. It's a vehicle for unchecked freedom of speech. Most of the Nazi stuff is posted by ADL/SPLC types, or trolls looking for lulz. Stop taking everything so seriously.
I didn't say they DIDN'T speak for guns rights. I said they didn't make it easier for gun owners. The gun-rights debate doesn't exist in a vacuum, and anyone who believes that does a disservice to the rest of us.
"We believe it's every American's God given right to keep and bear arms and want to support legislation that ensures this right is not infringed." Pretty good statement, right? Now, to the general public, would that be better coming from a suit-and-tie corporate type addressing a crowd of similarly attired folks, or would it be better if it were a Klansman in full robes addressing a crowd of other Klansmen?
Many of us will buy it but not for the shitty singleplayer, DICE always tried to make this dramatic movie like sp but fails and I doubt this new dues making this game will do anything new, their bad company sp was way better because it offered fairly large maps to move around in and shoot bad guys with no shitty cutscenes or QTE everywhere trying to create some kind of faggity emotional scene.
to every anon saying vida games and movies have no effect on real life, would no one here admit that they have purchased or thought about purchasing a fire arm or piece of gear because it was on a game or movie?
Holy fuck, u dumb. I PROVIDED ONE EXAMPLE.
Do you want me to spam the thread with multiple examples? If so, how many? And I said google 'criticism of gangsta rap,' and provided you another link to another criticism. Are you dumb?
>Tiny portion of people.
That have a huge voice in a certain community.
Why are you so focused on white supremacists, when black supremacist groups are just as vocal, and indeed in many ways, much more active and open.
Why, just the other day there was a New black panther open carry event.
And I would say that that's a fallacious question, because the 'general public' doesn't have any fondness for either 'group'.
>the year is 2143
>you play the good terminator Obama who has to kill the evil libertarian mother figure Sara Connor.
Having spent way too much time on /pol/, it's completely dominated by Natsoc types with the occasional emasculated pet libertarian who kisses Natsoc ass still being tolerated.
It's a cesspit, and I hope someday they have a meet so I can hit them with some Zyklon B.
Dude, gay people make up like, less than 5% of the US population. That doesn't mean if I go to a pride rally I'm not going to find a lot of faggots. Just because there's a lot of natsocs in a place they're tolerated doesn't mean they run the place, or are even a majority. You're just looking for them in the threads where they're going to be found.
It was a joke about how /k/ makes fun of liberals because they don't like things based on their feelings, and now /k/ is irate and don't like things based on their feelings and is boycotting shit.
I consider myself a III% faggot, but come on guys, it's literally just a game, and not a very good one.
What you should be worried about is the comment section. Jesus. Fucking. Christ. People calling out republicans as domestic terrorists because they VOTE. That shit is scary.
I really don't see anything wrong. Those guys are objectively bad guys, not because they're militia types, but because they're evil fuckers. That they're militia types is inconsequential. It's like saying the previous installments portrays Arabs and Muslims as evil.
>I want to kill people I disagree with politically.
Really taking the moral high ground there, friend.
And /pol/ isn't 'dominated by Natsoc types'. There are some very 'loud' posters, sure, but they are by no means the majority.
30/30/20 libertarian/ 'natsoc' / other split has been consistently shown.
"The lower taxes for the rich and liberty crowd is basically commiting domestic terrorism through the way they vote."
> liberty crowd is basically commiting domestic terrorism through the way they vote
You can't make this stuff up. They'll never win, we won't let them.
Dice is swedish and somehow I doubt that Colt and other international companies really give a shit.
All I remember is that Dice made a big deal about it because of people blaming vidya games for "gun violence" or something like that. All I know is that Dice brought it up, not Colt, or Remington, or Beretta, or Izhmash
Well, no. The HAZE plot turned out that the militia was just as corrupted. At the end they started killing the mil guys for no reason. Something like
>They're just animals, MC!
which echoed the earlier claims of the advanced mil guys against the militia. I liked that game.
The difference between this and games like grand theft auto that portray the "gangsta" life is that in grand theft auto there are lawyer/doctors who are black. And many of the protagonists are white.
This isn't even on the same level as "muh misogyny in games, women are just sex objects" argument because there are plenty of games that have strong women protagonists. The tomb raider series, metroid, portal (were the female protagonist not only has a high level of endurance but is very intelligent as well) and any rpg that allows you to play as a female.
The game is targeting a specific political movement. It's characterizing those who are former veterans, people with no formal training who want to learn to protect their family and neighbors, and those who want to prepare to defend their country from an enemy as ignorant, racist terrorists who have no regard for the sanctity of human life when that couldn't be farther from the truth.
Oh yeah, I forgot about that. Another reason EA sucks dick.
As for this game, I'm just not going to play it. Not going to request it be taken off shelves, just going to vote with my wallet, and I'm sure a lot of other players are going to feel alienated and do the same thing.
>You've given EA money UNTIL NOW.
Fuck you, you deserve this shit. They've been treading money for years because you twitch-reflex spasm tards gotta habes yur battlefields.
Suck it up. Suck it all up.
Point of order: /pol/ was the single best place to be during the Zimmerman trial. All the racist horseshit went out the window and they transmogrified into a bunch of hungry little data-munching truth seekers. It was mindblowing.
Then the trial ended and they went back to a tribe of online neo-nazis with anti-Semitic Tourette's.
I can't explain it either. If you lurked there during Fergusen you saw flashes of it.
I haven't seen the new movie, but in the old Red Dawn they did start blowing up civilian targets that soldiers frequented. And killed at least one prisoner (technically 2 if you count the guy that had the bug inside him).
>I want to genocide people that disagree with me ideologically
yet another stunning moral revelation.
You don't know that these people 'want to commit genocide'. you just know they post things on an internet imageboard that you don't like.
It was pretty shocking. Took weeks for my eyebrows to come down off the ceiling.
I'm starting to think /pol/ plays at crazy to keep the edge honed, so when it's go time, they don't need to go full retard to be effective.
Goddamnit, why does DICE and EA have to be such shit. They've always been antigun, but this is unbelievable. I bet they wont even make militia an enemy in multiplayer, it'll be some conveniently inserted russians or something.
I think it's more that most of the time, it's just letting off steam, if you will, and that when 'big shit' happens, it's all business.
You'll see that during HAPPENINGS, where twitter feeds, streams, shit like that are all pulled in.
Now, I'm not one of those idiots that will say
>HURR /pol/ IS ALL SATIRE
but there is a decent amount of..exaggerated posting there.
Do you mean using them in the game? Or they launched some kind of anti-gun violence campaign?
I don't see why a company would be against including their guns in a popular game it's like free advertising.
Oh indeed. Once and a while the smoke clears enough that you can see the machinations. It's almost like they're attacking each other to build up a resistance to bullshit online political fighting; When they get bit by the real-deal, they won't even feel the sting. Fuck, I think /pol/ might be impressing me.
>Many of us will buy it but not for the shitty singleplayer
Exactly. Who the fuck is retarded enough to buy it for single player? BF is always about online play and vehicles. Delicious vehicles.
Well, it's not some concerted effort, but i'd say that's one advantage of an openly antagonistic forum (which goes for all of 4chan) - you get desensitized to the little things, so rather than blow up over some personal slight, it's just brushed aside for the most part, which lets everyone focus more on the big shit.
>You don't know that these people 'want to commit genocide'.
They outright say it all the time. Next you'll tell me the stormfags of the world just want to be left alone, which of course involves ethnic cleansing.
Yes, I'm sure they're all just kidding...
That's exactly what they hope to accomplish, and they're not shy at all about making their point.
I look forward to getting my chance to waste a few.
>Next you'll tell me the stormfags of the world just want to be left alone
Actually, that was/is a big part of ethnic superiority, for all races; forced racial segregation.
Hell, a decent amount of Black and White supremacist groups actually worked on civil terms back in the day, simply because their end goals were fairly similar.
So yes, a decent amount of race superiority promoters do just want to be left alone.
