Medal of Honor, Games Classification and Free Speech

I’ve been meaning for some time to write about two things: (1) EA’s stunt over introducing the Taliban into Medal of Honor as a playable faction, and their subsequent u-turn; and (2) the pending US Supreme Court case over games classification in California.  In both cases, I am v interested in what these developments mean for the freedom of creative and political expression in games.

Now I don’t need to, because Ian Bogost has written a very thoughtful post on Gamasutra about these issues.  If you have 5 minutes, I’d encourage you to read it.

  1. India's nigger-slave service chiefs, ministers, etc. are constantly talking of threats from India's 'neighbors'. But the United States is EVERYBODY's neighbor. It has already invaded and occupied Afghanistan, a part of traditional India and will expand its occupation to the rest of the subcontinent.
    Was Britain India's neighbor? I am India's expert in strategic defence and the father of India's strategic program, including the Integrated Guided Missile Development Program. The U.S. invasion of Afghanistan means the coast-to-coast destruction of the U.S. by India; see my blog titled 'Nuclear Supremacy For India Over U.S.' which can be found by a Yahoo search with the title for steps I have already taken for the nuclear destruction of New Delhi and then the coast-to-coast destruction of the U.S. and extermination of its population.
    Russia and the U.S. are allies.
    These are the enemies to destroy. All other enemies will be taken care of automatically.
    Conventional arms are worthless for destroying the United Sates. Nuclear arms to destroy the United States with a FIRST STRIKE — this is the key — are cheap and easy to produce with technology India already has. By prepositioning a couple of nuclear bombs in Washington and New York and letting the world know we have done so will give India freedom to test thermonuclear weapons designs, ICBMs, etc., as much as it wants, though India already has this freedom but for the nigger-slaves. Alternatively, twenty kiloton bombs can be prepositioned in the largest U.S. cities and then Washington and New York destroyed with the warning that additional U.S. cities will be destroyed if there is any retaliation. The nuclear destruction of New Delhi — without waiting — is all that is needed to make India win.

  2. Medal of Honour Allied Assault is best Action game where we have to move in the Group.It's the Mission Based game where we have to clear the Levels with the strategies going.

  3. These are bargain and simple to aftermath with the technology in India has. By atom bombs in Washington and some pre-positioning and the apple to apperceive the abandon to analysis thermonuclear weapons designs.

  4. Eight bombs can be propositioned kilotons pm in the main cities of the United States and then in Washington and New York destroyed with the warning that a further U.S. destroyed the city if there is retaliation.
