Kotaku - The BioShock games have always had a weightier tone to them than just shooting things in the face. The first game was lightly basted in an Ayn Rand marinade, while the upcoming BioShock Infinite deals with some tricky issues like racism.
WHAT DA... Oh, It's The Internet.
Haha yeah, summed it up there. "I wonder how many sci-fi twists I would have to make, before I could create a game about some white midwestern townsfolk shooting hordes of samoli immigrants." What's a Samoli immigrant?
I think he meant "Somalians" or "Salami" (referring to an assortment of colors, as a spotted meat?? I'm PRETTY SURE I've heard that expression once before. Somalians seems too specific, I think?) Anyway, assuming it wasn't meant as a racist thing (after much research, I'm not sure), there's nothing wrong with this comment: "So you go around blasting white patriots. I get it. They aren't human, there is a "force" at work, the vox populi movement is not much better. The whole city is an evil death weapon. They promote eugenics, they hate foreigners, they love Washington, their utopia is a dystopia, due to... whatever. Essentially your still running around blasting white patriots. I wonder how many sci-fi twists I would have to make, before I could create a game about some white midwestern townsfolk shooting hordes of samoli immigrants" It's true. Look at RE5; white guy shoots black people because he's in Africa. "ZOMG RACIST" You can make a game about killing dumb white people (they're meant to be stereotyped Americans, let's not dance around that) that run around being patriotic and hating non-white people any day of the week.
No, its Kotaku. That's like the "Da Internetz" only distilled and applied towards gaming. Dare I say Kotaku is the Fox News of gaming, or is that too harsh? What really gets me more than articles like this is that they run Youtube videos through their own player so they can't be embedded on N4G - you have to go to their site in what is an obvious manipulative ploy to generate hits.
That is exactly what they are. The Fox new of gaming. I used to frequent there sites often until they started to create articles simply as flamebait for people to get worked up over trivial things. Kotaku should be banned IMO.
2 people in a forum said something!!!! QUICK MAKE IT AN ARTICLE!
Mezzo please stop submitting Kotaku articles. They're terrible quality and don't have anything good to contribute. They're a glorified blog except with worse content.
But then Mezzo won't get paid with bubbles ;)
ahah last I checked Jews are white people, perhaps the whitest.
I'm sure Hitler was thrilled at that news.
But they and others identify them differently. FREQUENTLY are they identified as their own race. I'M NOT SAYING I AGREE WITH THE RACIST POSTERS. I'm just saying, because a lot of people don't seem to realize that.
i thought albinos were the whitest.lol
To be exact true Jews had Swarthy skin tone kind of like the People of the Middle east.
yes they cam from europe and mixed with the original jews. ironic they are called Ashkenazi jews. nazi.....
someone seems seriously disturbed.
OW!!! FLIPPING OW!!! I GOT A MIGRANE READING THAT!!!
Well, considering the popularity of foreigner-killing simulators like Uncharted, Resident Evil 5, Call of Duty and Max Payne 3 I guess it's only fair to have a game like this. /SATIRICAL /SATIRICAL /SATIRICAL Did I mention I'm not being serious?
I don't even know what life is anymore....
I heard the game has you do some pretty crazy stuff like throwing rocks at an interracial couple etc. Not cool.
That would be awesome
Oh looks it's Kotaku.. Not surprising
Im still going to play this game
You've gotta be kidding me. Bioshock Infinte is all white people, so the game is a white-person killing simulator. RE5 was in Africa, so it's racist when you only kill Black people in the game. Do you know what I noticed? Nobody called RE4 racist when the only people you kill in that game are europeans...
Worse yet, those were spanish...
spain is in europe buddy ;)
It's the internet. At this point, nothing is short of surprising in the form of people saying racist things. Twitter and Youtube are flooded with moronic statements and offensive messages. It just goes to show who uses their brain and common sense and who doesn't.
The white supremacist quoted in the article clearly knows gaming: "But 99% of the company owners with the actual power are Jewish, such as Levine, Robert Kotick of Activision (the guys who make Grand Theft Auto) etc." And good he didn't include spoilers since he has obviously played the whole game since he knows the plot, even though it's not out until next year...
Since when did being Jewish (a religion) become a race?
Since about 3000 years ago in the Middle East, if not further back.
So... blue eyed Caucasian people who's religion happens to be Jewish, are a different race than blue eyed Caucasian people who aren't? That sounds like a "master race" complex, something Hitler would say. That kind of thinking is why I'm an atheist. There are white Jews, black Jews, Arab Jews, and even Asian Jews. It's a religion not a race. Race http://en.wikipedia.org/wik... Religion http://en.wikipedia.org/wik... Atheism http://en.wikipedia.org/wik... This lesson is free
The jews really do consider themselves their own race. Doesn't make any sense, but that is just how it is.
AWWWWWWW! SHIT HERE WE GO AGAIN.
2013 is around the corner and this fuckery still exist?
