    This is what they are worried about? Really?

    How about you worry more about the US Congress passing bills that declare America a battlefield, and allow citizens to be detained indefinitely.

    Don't be so down on them. I mean they got to find something to do now that we have finally achieved world peace.

    Y'know how you surrender?

    Close the program.

    Lame. If you're going to violate the Geneva conventions why not go all out? Forced labor camps, death marches, reprisal killings of families and children...

    Today's military simulation games are so sanitized...

    A game were committing war crimes can give you an immediate advantage, but with repercussions coming later on could be interesting.

    Only pussy libs or the French surrender. Me? I go all Sam Kinison on a game, find the god mode, and go apeshit on whatever annoyed me.

    No skill in that.

    What annoys me is spawncamping snipers. I generally solve that problem with whatever indirect-fire weapon is available to me--artillery or grenades, generally.

    Can't fire around corners, can you, laddie?

    I completely agree with this assessment. I am, however, wondering how they are going to get this to a second season, because I don't see this one ending well for anyone.

    Best new show this year, by far. And I'll say it again, Morena Baccarin's tits.

    This is the shit they are worrying about? Fucking A. It is a DAMN VIDEO GAME!

    Yes, it may desensitize people to violence but no one is actually getting physically hurt - unless you call stuffing your gut with poor nutritional choices and getting no exercise physical harm.
