How Call of Duty Is Making Anonymous "the Enemy"

The irony of ironies is that the rights to the mask are actually owned by Warner Bros. So for every mask legally sold, Warner Bros. gets a kickback.

However, the mask is being recast in a different light in Call of Duty: Black Ops II's promotional campaign. A series of documentary style clips tackle different elements of technology and warfare; in two of them, the Guy Fawkes mask appears on screen.

"For many, the group has tinges of political activism, using their computer skills and savvy for "good""

Can't help but laugh anyone who believes anonymous actually hack for good purposes. They are a bunch of self serving dimwits who are so far up their own a**es that they believe what they do helps everyone.

About 90% of the actions that anonymous takes are completely misdirected and end up in no way harming the people they are trying or harming the people they are supposedly standing up for (like with the PSN thing last year)

I agree. And Anonymous isn't alone in this, it's other hacker groups that's been hacking stuff left and right.

Funny? Ah. 'kay, let's see Anonymous destroy everything.

Only then, ONLY THEN! People will start standing up to these members. I want to see that one.

self motivated or not, at least they do something...

what have you ever done against the nazi corporate take over of your life?

deep_fried_bum_cake2756d ago

I haven't really experienced a Nazi corporate takeover of my life (maybe I would have if I was American) and I don't really care what some big corporation does anyway as I'll just about never be affected by it. And my point is that the something that they do isn't something they should do or it's something that they do wrongly.

There is a german hackers conference once a yr and then showed how easy it was to hack into the security of mobile phones, credit card info etc, they showed there findings to the mobile phone companies and they still refuse to listen because it would cost them 100s of millions to redesign the tech/OS for there security but guess what they dont

well it was pretty obvious even before they were shown.

Nothing wrong with COD's portrayal of Anonymous; it is reasonable to assume a hacker could or might try to overtake AI in the future. Plus anyone can declare themselves as anonymous.

What the US government is doing to the constitutional rights of its citizens is 100 times worse than anything anonymous could do. Go read and learn about something, about the everyday events in the world. Go listen to independent news sources like as opposed to western media sources sullied by other interests.

Did you know that this general comments section is in most likeliness been data collected and scanned? of course not, why would it, its simply a gaming thing right? And now some clown is going to come in and make a tin foil hat comment.

I would end with something like "Kids these days", but I remember being clueless when I was growing up to these kinds of things. Like that old saying goes, "ignorance is bliss".
