Army of Two uses 9/11 imagery

The latest trailer of EA's military shooter Army of Two, which will be released for PS3 and 360 on 16 November, opens with footage taken from the 9/11 terror attack, showing smoke bellowing from one of the World Trade Center towers.

A 2006 press release stated that Army of Two "will throw gamers into hot spots ripped from current day headlines" and having the opening cinematic begin with the events of 9/11, it certainly seems intent on living up to that premise.

For a war game thats a good thing.

InMyOpinion3713d ago

Yeah, blame an entire ethnic group of people! All arabs and muslims are mentally deranged! Fundamental christians who put profit in favor of human lives is much better! Have you ever thought of what triggered them to do it? I guess your answer to that would be "They are evil".

Anywho, the trailer was'nt as tasteless as I had expected, but still I think it's sad that they have to highlight such a tragic event in order to get publicity.

Who said i was on the side of christians.
All religions are evil, they should all be outlawed.
People who put faith above reason have no place in this century.

People who believe in God are stupid, and people who support people who believe in God are just as bad.

I agree, Jenzo. It wasn't as tasteless as I expected it to be.

On the other hand, V2oom's statement was very tasteless and immature. It's still a mystery to me how ignorant people can be, especially when they are as adament as V2oom about declaring reason over religion. Shouldn't an individual who thinks reason is superior act a little more reasonable and mature?

V2oom3713d ago

I hear what you say.
However religious people are incapable of reasoned discussion.
If they applied reason to their thinking then they wouldn't be religious.

Religion is ruining this world.

InMyOpinion3713d ago

True indeed. Bush is a newborn christian, he believes earth was created by god and that we are born either good or evil. He's just as much a fanatic as the terr'sts, the difference being that he has the power to control the fate of a nation (and even more). Politics + religion don't mix well, unfortunately they are hard to separate.

I'd say fanaticism (both religious and political) and greed is what's destroying the world. Greed probably has the upper hand.

MyNutsYourChin3713d ago

Religious fanatics are ruining this world, not religion. Ignorance is ruining this world, not religion. People who fall to immorality, irresponsibility, arrogance, greed, lust, sloth, choose your vice, these people are the ones ruining this world, not religion.

Consequently, not only your comments against religion but also people who take aggressive action against religious communities or influence others to do so are also aiding the demise of culture and social substance. Please become more aware of the difference between the reality that you think exists (the one that surrounds you) and the reality that truly exists.

There's a much bigger picture than the one you are trying to draw with your argument for reason.

Please note, I'm not arguing against reason, I am arguing for it but also for the infinitely diverse and numbered other aspects of reality that one sees when dissolving her/his innately restricted and limited perceptions.

V2oom3713d ago

All religious people are fundamentalists. One or the corner stones of religion is obeying your chosen text without question.

Societies which are more secular have greater morality, are more responsible, have lower crime rates and lower suicides. Because they dont believe there is a better life waiting for them after death, they care more about the life they are living right now.

You mention greed like its a bad thing.
Greed is what motivates people. Without greed we wouldn't have nuclear power, computers, space fight, LCD televisions, 360's and PS3's.

Would you prefer to live in a medieval feudal society?
Religion stifles development. Religion is designed to keep the masses subservient.
Its something that should have abolished along with slavery.

Your ignorance to truth and compassion is not surprising. You must be from the US. I'm finished arguing with you and your closed-minded foolishness. Open your eyes, move out of your stereotyped reality, and get an education.

V2oom3712d ago

You must be real dumb if you think i'm from america.
America and its right wing religious zealots are almost as big a problem to society as the muslims.

I live in a country torn apart by religious divides. I've seen it first hand on my door step. And unfortunately its getting worse.
You must live in a magical land surrounded by cotton wool where you isolated from what is really happening. (i'm guessing Belgium)

Opinions like yours are what have held the world back over the last 15 years. But thankfully moderate people have reached saturation point with all the troubles and are beginning to speak out and be heard.

Your the type of person that would have said the Nazis don't mean any harm in 1938.

MyNutsYourChin3712d ago (Edited 3712d ago )

I thought I'd have nothing more to say but your ignorance and arrogance are just so appalling... Now you're attacking the whole community of Muslims? You have a serious mental problem, boy. This is my last reply...

Considering you're ignored by 20 people and tracked by zero, I'm going to assume, and rightly so, that you are a liar. It's very easy to say you're not from a specific place when you never state your location, such as putting it in your profile. Consequently, your statement, "...I live in a country torn apart by religious divides. I've seen it first hand on my door step. And unfortunately its getting worse..." is an exaggeration. If this was true you wouldn't be online at a gaming website arguing with a physicist/philosopher about the enigmatic problems of social and cultural divides in the modern world. You are a fool, and one that can be heard kilometers away. You insult me with your flawed logic and your pathetic lies.

Additionally, you are a hypocrite. Claiming that fundamentalism is a problem and then further acting in a fundamentalist manner by attacking religion shows your lack of awareness to your own argument. Consider yourself ignored by another user on N4G.

LoL I can already see Jack coming to town

ASSASSYN 36o3713d ago

Agreed, that test tube baby just got some more ammo against our games. I don't agree with any world trade center addition. It is a negative experience for anyone especially us Americans.

JPomper3713d ago

What about Pearl Harbor? Hiroshima? Nagasaki? Normandy? Are any of those events less tragic?

There's countless footage and locations from world tragedies that are used for not only video games, but pretty much every other aspect of electronic entertainment. It's nothing new.

InMyOpinion3713d ago

American lives are worth 2 times more than other persons lives. That's why.

crazyman3713d ago

Are you really so retarded that you actually believe that, if so I feel sorry for you.

SmokeyMcBear3713d ago

jenzo.. uhhh.. pearl harbor and normandy involved.. many.. many american lives.. more than the events of 9/11. So uh, try another way to be stupid

If you guys are prepared for the truth.

If you thought "The Matrix" was just a movie, get ready to unplug.

"Watching this video is like being bukakked with stupid."
Couldn't have said it better.

I did watch the whole film.

Some of what they show as evidence is laughable to anyone with an ounce of scientific knowledge.

And if anyone thinks i'm an American hater, let me tell you. I have a 6 foot by 5 foot picture of the world trade centre hanging in my livingroom.

Rooted_Dust3713d ago

I would rather you have a 6" X 5" copy of the Constitution in your living room, because if the perpetrators of the attack wanted to destroy America, they are succeeding. It's amazing how we know Bush is a mental midget and a pathological liar, but when it comes to 9/11 we say "No, he would never lie about that.".

codeazrael3713d ago

you have to watch the whole video. Loose change is about one and a half hours and you can easily find it on youtube by searching for that title and you can watch and download zeitgeist at zeitgeistmovie.com

I wasnt expecting to find this stuff...........I guess it just found me.
