Finally Broke My Crowdfunding Rule
By oblivion437

I've had a long-standing rule to avoid getting involved in any sort of crowdfunded activities.  I didn't donate to Shadowrun or Wasteland, but I did buy and enjoy both of them (I'm plugging both of those games right now, just so you know they're good).  I haven't...

Why Is the Korean War Ignored?

Posted on Friday, August 19 @ 11:34:42 Eastern by StickyGreenGamer

Simple enough question. Military war shooters come in several flavors. The World War 2 games, the Vietnam games, ones set among current times. To my recollection, though, there has never been a game set during the Korean War. WHY?

Because no one knows sh** about the Korean War.

I do! My mom's uncle was present for the violent "police action", and he shared more than a few stories. Most memorable would be the one about how he drew the short straw to go get coffee for his squad. When he came back, there was no squad left to give the coffee too. I can't even imagine.

Granted, weapons in a Korean War game would be similar to most WW2 shooters, but there still are differences. Not to mention, plenty of interesting material to be used as far as storyline and battles.

I wouldn't be surprised to see Treyarch take a shot at one with the Call of Duty series, though. Whether they're aware or not, they did lay some decent groundwork for characters with Black Ops. Frank Woods was a decorated Korea veteran, and Hudson was in the military during the time of conflict.

There you go, Treyarch, a completely free contribution from yours truly. I pointed out two characters you can use; now start reskinning the game!

With all this said: The Breakout at Chosin. Wikipedia it!
