    Same thing happened with North and South Korea. They said that it didn't depict them in favorable lights...

    But the charm of Mercaneries is that it IS somewhat realistic, and at the same time a snide political statement by Pandemic.

    If they don't like the way their tyrannical oppressionist government is depicted in videogames, maybe they should stop being a tyrannical, oppressionist government.

    ^Yup. Can't agree more. I'd love to see Hugo Chavez out of Venezuela. We've finally got nations like Chile and Peru becoming stable after military juntas and now these militant leftists are fucking up the future of stability of South America.

    What? The people have taken to the streets to chuck the US-backed neo-liberals out of power and install the genuinely democratically elected Huge Chavez...The US and venezuelan bourgeoisie have attempted THREE times, through coups, factory lockdowns etc to get Chavez out of power and EACH TIME the people have taken to the streets again and demanded his return. And what's Chavez done? The total opposite to his neo-liberal predecessor; nationalising industries, returning power to the workers and the people.

    Video games are a conspiracy of communists, terrorists, and gang leaders to turn our sweet, innocent children into a porn-addicted army of Tommy Vercetis. I mean, didn't you guys know that Battlefield 2 is made by EA, a known Middle Eastern terrorist agency, to train and brainwash WASP American kids? No? The CIA thinks so.
