Peace in the Era of Call of Duty

In a world dominated by violent media, Americans are no more eager to go to war than they were in the 1980s or the 1960s or the 1940s. Hasn't it always been someone else's problem? The overwhelming majority would rather go on thinking it had nothing to do with them and there...

xDUMPWEEDx: Vox Pop Winner November 2012

Posted on Thursday, December 6 @ 13:08:41 Eastern by

There was a lapse in Vox Pop entries last month, but that could be because of a glitch on our technical end or  shandog's second extra-credit blog in October (which is now been counted here). At any rate, I actually wrote my own Vox Pop about MUGEN 1.0+ to fill in the gap. But since I'm nice and reasonable or something like that, I have chosen to lose. For our community!

Despite the gap, we did have more than several entries. And what variety there was. shandog137 openly discussed the issue of sensitive video games like Homefront and Medal of Honor: Warfighter, but also the trouble of video games being able to participate in the discussion about foreign wars. Does playing a game where you can be a terrorist mean that you favor terrorism or even empathize with terrorists?

Tyrannis gave feedback on the Hawken beta, which people should check out if they like mech games and don't mind paying nothing because it's free-to-play. sliverstorm, ever the statistician, offered up his views on THQ's financial troubles with his signature charts and graphs.

I ultimately chose xDUMPWEEDx for alerting all of us to an oversight by Activision to treat its community respectfully. Many PS3 players experienced the exact same issue that he was. And while It's one thing for a company to ignore or dismiss customer claims, it's another thing to blame the community in effect for an error that clearly exists with photographic evidence. I'm glad that xDUMPWEEDx has been able to fix this problem without their help and that he was able to vent his frustration here on Game Revolution!

Winner: xDUMPWEEDx
Title: My sickening Black Ops 2 experience


Excerpt:

Runner-Up: shandog137
Title: Modern Warfare Games and Artistic Liberty: What side to portray?



Excerpt: "Do you provide country-appropriate content? It reminds me a bit of HomeFront being banned in Korea… and that was pure fiction."


Runner-Up: Tyrannis
Title: Love Thy Mecha: My feedback on the Hawken beta



Excerpt: "...if you have any inclination towards the mecha genre, look to Hawken when it finally releases. It'll apparently be F2P, as well, so that's another bonus."

Excerpt:
"This is the completely biasedyet completely factualrise and fall of THQ, in the company's own words."
