Is This Spoiler Modern Warfare 3’s "No Russian" Moment?

THIS POST HAS A SPOILER IN IT. If you want a tiny part of Modern Warfare 3, which officially hits Nov. 8, spoiled, read on. If you don't, this is a post (and comments section) you should skip.

Okay? We all here? Let's dive in.

The above clip was sent to Kotaku, with the tipster writing, "New Modern Warfare 3 Controversy" in the subject line.

The story is too old to be commented.

Love how the guy has a damage indicator.

The Nuke scene in the first COD was brilliant (it was in-game at least!)

The No Russian level was controversial but still, marked a bold move.

This CGI, heartless piece with little imagination is just dire.

You're sucking the life out of the franchise Activision.

It seems that children can die in movies without being controversial. It's part of the story. When a video game does the same, I do not like when children die, then it is controversial and sucking life out of a franchise?

Give me a break. You have been mad on every single Modern Warfare 3 article so far Septic, you might want to start getting a life and avoiding the game if you so dearly hate it.

The damage indicator is a major fuck up, whomever released this and approved this, gets himself fired today it seems.

The first COD was set in WW2 and did not have a nuke scene.

Sorry I meant first Modern Warfare game.

@NuclearDuke

I've been hating on every COD article? Stop chatting nonsense- if you look at my comment history I have said time and time again that I loved COD Modern Warfare 1 and 2 and I spent countless hours on them. Learn to read before opening your trap.

Also:

"It seems that children can die in movies without being controversial. It's part of the story. When a video game does the same, I do not like when children die, then it is controversial and sucking life out of a franchise?"

I'm sorry can you not read? Let me spoon feed the point to you seeing as you're clearly struggling:

"The No Russian level was controversial but still, marked a bold move."

"This CGI, heartless piece with little imagination is just dire. " So where did I say it CANNOT be controversial? Clearly I credited the No Russian level for being controversial yet bold and I'm critiquing this for being completely un-inspired.

Reading comprehension- invest some time in learning it. That way you won't look like an idiot when you make knee-jerk reactions to posts you haven't bothered to understand.

In No Russian you actually shot innocent people fair enough there's a bit of controversy about it, but it was a good story point. This is just portraying how innocent people are caught up in terror attacks can't see how this is more controversial, not when you consider movies have showed worse things.

Knee-jerk reactions are the reason most games don't even bother with these kind of scenes. An heartless for F's sake there virtual people, I kill hundreds of em' online I don't sit there thinking about there virtual families and how there virtual lives will be affected.

If you don't like it don't but it. Activision didn't create this scene IW and Sledgehammer did so any criticism's should be directed at them. Heads are gonna roll after seeing that stupid damage indicator.

JaredH1727d ago (Edited 1727d ago )

I'm not watching the video since I don't like things being spoiled but I don't understand why every COD game after MW2 has to have a controversial level. It's just like after COD4 where every new COD has to have a sniping level now.

It's just making each game more of the same like the majority of people are complaining about.

@NuclearDuke
the reason these clips are controversal on console and not in the film industry is that people see gaming for little kids and more often than not that is the case (if i just count the number of kids i come across in cod as oppsed to people who arnt then you can tell). when you go to watch a film they ask you for age proof and theres no way about it while with gaming most kids play the game their older brother bought or they got their parents to buy.

"No russian" sucked. Trust me, Im probably one of the least sensitive people you'll ever come across. "No russian" sucked, the game would have been better w/o it.

TimmyShire1727d ago

Looks to me like they're being controversial for the sake of it. But whatever sells games, right?

floetry1011727d ago

People, especially gamers, love the fear angle. It plays to their sense of patriotism and lack of odds. Hence the reason Call of Duty is so huge in the first place, because it's accessible in that way.

The scene is pretty predictable, but I'm not going to condemn it. Children are casualties of war, regardless of background. It'll touch a nerve with plenty of people for the right reason. To defend, to serve, to protect etc. Universal themes for a big budget game.

Michael Bay in game form, take it or leave it.

Feckles1727d ago

This is just unnecessary.

theonlylolking1727d ago

It adds to the story.It is showing how no one is safe from Makarov and his men while at the same time trying to get free advertising.

LightSamus1727d ago

Controversial or not, if it gets people and media talking, it's FREE advertising. Not that MW3 will need a great deal of advertising but you can't say no to free publicity.

skyward1727d ago

Agree. Although to be fair, Activision hasn't pushed this scene yet. Suppose they realise people will jump on it at launch though.

Optical_Matrix1727d ago

Controversy for controversies sake. Classy as usual infinity ward
