turtleking: how about we make the Navy Seals the celebrities and cut back on the Little Wayne and Nicky vagina worship

You seem to be conflating celebrity and celebrity worship. And if you're honestly suggesting that we spend more time worshiping the military then I honestly don't know what to say.

While I greatly respect the SEALs and all Special Ops troops, these dudes were dumbasses, especially as some were SNCOs, according to reports.

Violating your signed non-disclosure agreements on active duty is something only generals and admirals get away with.

jayphat: What the hell exactly was the movie "Act of Valor" then?

You know, for all the flack that movie got over using actual Navy SEALs, the biggest problem by far was the Z-grade script it had to play with. The dialogue outside of the action scenes wouldn't have been well-acted by even the best the film industry has to offer, and after the first act, it devolves into a terrorist plot so generic that it makes 24 Season 6 (and the greater part of 8) look like Oscar-worthy material. I can forgive everything else about that movie, but that damn script was farking awful.

Seraphym: speedycat: Geotpf: I don't quite understand the need for "realism" in video games, anyways. Of course, I play Team Fortress 2, a game where you can heal yourself by firing rockets at people, not to mention being able to kill people with a fish, a candy cane, and a rainbow.

I'm a weapons guy. It's what I do. I live and breath small arms. So when I sit down to play a shooter, I expect it to be as close to what I do in real life as possible. If I shoot someone with a 12ga at 25 yards, I expect them to die. If I nail someone in the chest 3 times with a 7.62, I expect them to die, not continue bunny hopping across the map. I really can appreciate realism in games. in the last MOH game my character hit his forward assist a couple times before breaching a door. That gave me an erection. In RE6 Leon does a press check with his sidearm when he draws it. Those little details really make a game for me. Those guys are supposed to be trained professionals, they should act like them.


Based on skirting-the-details discussions with a few of my friends & acquitances who have been on deployment to Iraq and the 'stan, who earned their CABs/CARs several times over, and coupled with what I've been able to read on SOFD-D and DEVGRU operations in the early days of OEF, I thought MoH 2010 was spot on for detail... at least at the Hard setting. Now, you got to keep living after taking a few rounds... but it is a game after all, and making it all RB6 1 would have been maybe a bit much, considering the number of bad guys you had to take out with your little AFO team and how often some SoB behind a rock would catch you sprinting to a new firing position.

Just too bad Warfighter totally dropped the ball. 

Now, considering all the press that was given to the "Tier 1" assets giving design assistance with MoH 2010, why is this a big deal on this sequel game now? They had cant-see-my-face guys meeting with the dev team at Danger Close back in 2009 as well. I'm actually curious to know why these variations on real-world missions are verboten, while the ones in MoH 2010 were not.

Moh t1 was basically the battle of roberts ridge.....except neil roberts didnt find his m4s peq lighting up the night sky like the luxor hotel
