There are some combinations that seem to go together almost too well together, like peanut butter and jelly, P.S. I Love You and Ice Cream and Electronic Arts and controversy.
Pretty cool analysis.
PS I Love You goes better with chocolate. Or whiskey. Maybe Murphy's, that would be fitting, yes?
Yeah, the only people who are mad about this are NON GAMERS. Gamers just play the game and see it as two teams. People on the outside are the ones who get offended. We just want to frag, we're not being trained to kill American troops.
It's really true. The Taliban could be replaced with The Simpsons and gamers would accept it and boil it back down to the "opposing force" mentality.
I love the [opposing forces] but hate the [opposing forces]. Wait. Damn censors.
It's a lot of hot air on the national news outlets. It seems like things get especially crazy around an election season.
In the end, freedom of speech. Soldiers should have respected the decision, since they are fighting for freedom, no? Last thing I remember, we are the ones over there, fighting. No?
the only analysis is which decision will be more profitable
I wonder if EA got the rights from the Taliban to use the name anyway.
It's not a copyrights issue since the name Taliban isn't trademarked. It's more the fact that some people assumed that gamers would want to play as the Taliban to fulfill some sick fantasy about killing U.S. soldiers.
lol. Im trying not to laugh at that.
