naughtyrev: See, this is a concept that can be translated all over the world. You could have a Native American version, a Kashmiri version and market it to either India or Pakistan, a Texas version where you fight to become a country again (or a US version where you fight to push Texas out!). This is gold right here. Gold.
Voiceofreason01: How many American made shooters are based around fighting the Russians or middle Eastern Terrorists? Same thing.
hitlersbrain: I wonder if Japan is sweating over the possibility of China exacting payment for hundreds of years of atrocities.Historically China has been terrible at war. I'm not sure just 'having' high tech weapons will change that. They only 'won' vs the USA because we got tired of killing so many of them.
Olympus Mons: 3rd largest country on earth, vs country with limited land. Japan has skeletons in its closet, but if you think China is innocent there....you need to catch up on some history too.Every country has something to appologize for. My wife who is Korean, is not a fan of the Japanese government. She is OK with the people. Funny how as people we more or less can like each other, but add government, and culture, and country...then people stop being people in our minds anymore. Its human kinds cross to bare

I thought they were tacit allies during WW2. And I it was their war machine we were fighting during vietnam and korea but how many boots did they lose during those conflicts?
Moose23: I don't trust the Chinese government. Not one bit. Besides stealing American secrets, and censoring the Internet from their populace, I believe they have infiltrated the comments sections of major websites to divide the opinions of Americans.
Lee Jackson Beauregard: Because "taking back" disputed islands worked out so well for Argentina.
Men might as well project a voyage to the Moon as attempt to employ steam navigation against the stormy North Atlantic Ocean.- Dr. Dionysus Lardner (1793-1859), Professor of Natural Philosophy and Astronomy at University College, London.
SirEattonHogg: hitlersbrain: Historically China has been terrible at war. I'm not sure just 'having' high tech weapons will change that. They only 'won' vs the USA because we got tired of killing so many of them.It's funny how few people mention this fact. China does have a long history of war, development of weapons and of course, the famous general, Sun Tzu. But at the same time, yeah, their overall military history is fairly mediocre.Their generals have always had more of a history of corruption and incompetence from the dynastic eras all the way to modern era. Military leaders appointed because of nepotism or close relationships to the emperor. As such, Beijing or the other imperial capitals has been overrun by so many foreign invaders (from the Mongols to the Japanese). My fav is the fact that the Great Wall was often ineffective because the barbarians would just bribe the local garrison to get past the wall.The only reason during China's imperial height, various SE Asian countries were paying tributes to Beijing and accepting some nominal allegiance to China is due to political, trading and cultural links. China was admittedly the technological and cultural giant of the area for thousands of years. Otherwise, it spent a lot of effort doing sort of half hearted invasions against its neighbors that often were sort of mixed in terms of success, when it wasn't sucumbing to isolationism.
Voiceofreason01: FrancoFile: UnspokenVoice:Eh? How many American made shooters are made by the American government?Yeah, no. The US government is not the one making and distributing the game.http://www.americasarmy.com/
UnspokenVoice: Voiceofreason01: How many American made shooters are based around fighting the Russians or middle Eastern Terrorists? Same thing.Eh? How many American made shooters are made by the American government? I think that's the difference here though I am not outraged or even bothered by the fact. Hell, I don't mind - it is their country. Let 'em do what they want with it. I'm no fan of Japan, to be honest, so it is of no great importance to me though I'd likely hold the same level of outrage (nil) if the object of the game was to kill Americans.Now I kind of want to play it though. *chuckles* Perhaps it is time to fire up Rosetta Stone and buy the Mandarin or Cantonese language packs?Actually, I do think the American government does make video games for killing little brown men. They use them for training, as I recall, but they're not distributed to the general populace.
