In China (http://www.chinadaily.com.cn/english/doc/2004-05/29/content_334845.htm), that is.

They should't be insulted, but pleased, since more video game developers are using them as the the "heavies". Like the Klingons or Borg from Star Trek. :)

:lol: Some students today who watched the first episode of 'Alias" were quite upset that the Chinese were bad guys in it. They didn't seem to notice that everyone was a bad guy as well.

Paradox finds it amusing, it seems their game is not licensed for China, it was being pirated! :lol:

Considering that thread I started before about whether it's evil and wrong and bad to have fun with nazi's in computer-games (or pretend they weren't nazi's or prone to doing the kind of things that nazi's like to do), I don't think their point is too ridiculous... If the history is wrong (winner-regardless), then that's does indeed suck. Just coz it's the Chinese government doesn't mean it's wrong on this point.

I do find it funny that the game wasn't even released in china though.

Get the fuck out the games forum. Go back to ruining Counterpoint. Leave this one alone.

Your manner is to bend Venom over? Do you two need some vasoline? Laz has tons of the stuff apparently.

"This is my manor" is a well-known ultra-hard London gangster expression, so I dunno what you're talkin about fella. But if you're interested in helping Venom to get bent, then please take it elsewhere, this is a family forum. Laz has plenty of lubricant you could use I hear.

Bullshit. You're not even a two bit punk bitch. Fuck off and pontificate like a wannbe intellect someplace else.

The Chinese government is totally fucking evil. Shit... this isn't a fight that should even be happening between too people who speak English.

No fight, I just got this instinct to see the other guys point of view, usually I can surpress this pesky habit with a massive dose of self-rightious narrow-mindedness, but occasionally, when I'm relaxed, the reasonableness and empathy just kind of slips out.
Whereas Venom's just an idiot who resents that some people just like to talk about stuff he finds uninteresting or whatever.

Bitchly political liberals forum!

Is that the main forum?

That'd be Poly. :D

I think that's an bad call, Greg. Have you noticed the main forum here lately? ;)

I'm sure there are plenty of Chinese government officials who speak English. :D

Hmm, is this comparable to films on US soldiers capturing the enigma and US (animated) cinema screwing up greek mythology?

Funkodrom
02-06-2004, 13:58:00
We didn't ban the Enigma film in Britain...

Drekkus
02-06-2004, 14:38:07
I know. But there was a bit of an outrage about it, right? So are people here laughing at the fact that China hates wrong facts, or the disproportionate respons?

Chris
02-06-2004, 15:14:03
I find it funny they banned a game, and a game they had no right having in the first place.

Drekkus
02-06-2004, 15:29:54
yeah, that part IS funny.

Not really. It was a slight "Oh Hollywood.... :rolleyes: " type thing.

Well, there was a German sub captured by American troops. Command made quite a stink about it, because they feared that if word got out about the cowboy doing it, the Germans would swap codes and go up another level or two in Enigma coding.

Now a days, depending on who tells that story, it is either significant (new revised version), or just a bad cowboy commander going against orders and risking not only his command, but the whole war effort (old version).

I wouldn't call Admiral Dan Gallery a "cowboy" for capturing U-505.

You're all wrong. The Poles were the ones that handed over the first Enigma machine.
They should be outraged, not the Brits.

And believe me, we are. I remember arguing about it with some Poly types (that was a propos having a Poles in the "unofficial" expansion to Civ III), and they were pulling out bogus historical arguments literally out of their asses. That was fucking iritating, by "that" meaning how national propaganda warps the facts (the aformentioned twats were British)...

BigGameHunter

Well, I for one am quite pleased with the Polish contributions to the world, especially their beautiful women and love of sausage and beer and liquor.
Any country with that to offer is ok by me!

It's really uplifting seeing someone with a rational opinion about my country, thank you :).
