Everyone knows that the skinnies can't shoot for shiat... just watch out for the ones throwing rocks.

If only they were using action RPGs

They could train for hours, then spend the last 10 minutes learning none of it matters and a white starchild will always fark you in the end.

This just in! Terrorists drive CARS! Every year, millions of people drive cars. Some people are evil terrorists who drive cars to secret planning meetings, and even to plot terrorist activities. Some even use their cars as weapons! Stay tuned for more details!

so does this mean we can give 14 year old boys submachine guns and they will successively combat terrorism?

This explains why they hate us, they get verbally abused by 12 year olds on X box Live.

So, if you see a guy running at you with two shotguns...he's probably a terrorist.
 
2012-03-20 10:59:16 AM
Umm why wouldnt they just use Teamspeak or Ventrilo.

You could get hundreds of people in there instead of the 6-8 people you can in COD or any FPS.

If they end up playing online with some of the young kids I have heard, I can't blame them for hating America.

"Marik! He called me a queer!"

"Death to America!"

Because they aren't training to take down a boss in World of Warcraft?

Let me guess.
The terrorists conversations go something like this:

Go to A you retard. NO! Go to A.
AHhh.. This cock gargler is taking C.

Sensationalist drivel.

The terrorists choose incredibly realistic "first person games" where the controller works through a complex simulation of war scenarios, carrying out missions and battling enemy fighters.

Nothing says realistic like akimbo Skorpions and quick-scoping with an anti-materiel rifle.

Next time terrorists attack they will all be carrying .44 magnum revolvers and headshotting all their enemies from 100 yards away, then running over and teabagging them.

Real Life Death Match "Not as Fun" as Teens Hoped
By Brian Briggs

Buffalo Grove, IL - Seven teens were killed and two injured during a real-life "death match" they engaged in a suburban Chicago home.

The teens got the idea for the real-life death match after countless hours playing online death matches against one another. "Crazee-Rod always had such high ping times that it slowed everybody else down, so T-Banger said we should just do it for real at his house," said survivor Kevin Wilkins.

The teens placed weapons around the home, then all started from different "spawn points." While they were unable to get a real-life gravity gun, they did get a chainsaw and a .357. "I was disappointed we couldn't get a gravity gun," said Wilkins, "but in retrospect it probably would've made the match unfair for whoever got it."

"I went for the shotgun, because I thought it would be most effective in a close-quarters environment, but nothing beats a chainsaw for that," said Barry Hastert who survived a severed right arm by making it to a "med kit" placed by the stairs.

Then survivors said they knew their idea had gone horribly wrong after seven of their friends were dead. "I kept waiting for Paul and Trevor to respawn, but he just laid there bleeding. That's when I knew we should stop playing. It just wasn't fun after that," said Wilkins.

While saddened by the loss of his friends Hastert said he "totally pwned them" but getting shot in the leg by a .357 was "not as fun" as he'd hoped.

The incident brought renewed calls from local politicians to ban violent video games as well as moronic teenagers. "When you combine violent video games with stupid ideas like these teens had, it's a recipe for disaster. We're just lucky they didn't decide to reenact Katamari Damacy or our whole world could've been in danger from a giant rolling sticky ball," said City Councilperson Bob Stephens.

"That was total bullshiat. I threw a grenade right in there, and he didn't even blow up. Then he starts dancing around like a twitchy-fingered jerk and he shoots me *once*, from a mile away, and *I'm* the one that dies."

"TOTAL BULLSHIAT. Goddamn cheaters."

Yup. There are actually private methods of communicating out there, like by encrypting their messages/traffic or using TOR, etc....

Using COD would be dumb. They'd still have to run a set server to be able to meet up or have each other friended, otherwise they'd have random 12 year old kids listening in on their plots. And once those connections are established it becomes a vulnerability, not to mention that the game company would now have info on them that could be tracked down, when encrypted/secure communication tools would not leave a trail.

This.

Problem is that too many of such articles get politicians thinking that censorship is something they can run on.

The goal is to blend into a medium that's non-obvious for plotting.
If the feds see you connecting to the same private ts or vent server, they're going to have a good idea of what it's for.
If they see you playing xbox - well that's just xbox. Not many would immediately suspect that as a channel for plotting.

I wouldn't be surprised if their next move was passing messages via cam sites.

Psst. America ALREADY uses video games for training. Check out "History of Military Gaming," "Improving 'America's Army,'" or "Leveraging 'America's Army.'" (All are available at http://usarmy.vo.llnwd.net/e2/rv5_other/soldiers/archives/pdfs/sep08al l.pdf -- remove spaces, because Fark doesn't like the link.)

Our army just has two advantages: one, we can design video games precisely for what our military needs, and two, our weapons control systems are increasingly becoming computerized, meaning that there's no reason the interface with the weapons need be any different from the interface with the video game training system.
