BO2 is very hilarious. It is made by exactly who you think it is. Hipster geeks that think they know stuff when they start to learn things. HILARIOUS.
The regular COD stuff is already in there. Where 4 people can take down hundreds of elites and walk into gunfire and survive or howit was even possible to carry 20 missles that could destroy a Armored carrying vehicle in one shot and a medium tank in 2.
But the best part is The mission briefing on Tian Zhao.
Let's break it down as to the subjects these guys have been on in the last 3 missions I played
BO2 Break down:
- Superpower coalition
- America's hypocracy
- Cold War with China/Russia/Cuba/Americas involvement and aid
- Control of the market and war in the future and the leadings of it
No. Hipsters. You guys didn't do your hw. We all know Chairman Mao and what Americans think is (was) Chairman Hu. NO...just stop, its embarassing how hipster it is. I can just imagine it. A group of hipsters sitting down and talking about this. They usually hit it pretty nicely but their arguments for it and facts are just so hilariously out of there. This is one of them. There is no Chairman of China. After 1982, China decided to not have any more Chairman's for a variety of reasons. The most powerful leader and represenative of China is the General Secretary which is often referred to as the President of China (kinda correct as that is a unofficial title used by many and them sometimes) andvery incorrectly the Chairman of China.
SDC....lOL. Change a letter. For those of you that know. America, U.K, and France are in a coalition of armed guaranters of each other called NATO. Right now China (PRC) and Russia (RF) are also in their own armed guarantee coalition named the SCO. Shangai Co-operation Organization. They are talking about that probably. The differnece is, Russian Federation is already in it while in the game they are not. The game is correct though. India is not part of it and feeling IMMENSE pressure from it.
America's hypocracy. Something very often NOT ever mentioned is America's hypocracy which is shown and hinted on a few times here. Basically many of the public today confus American National Security with Worldwide Security. No. America is a nation and thus has its own huge ambitions. Helping other nations of course is a part of their mentallity and how they go about it but do not be confused that that is not always or most often the case. The taking of the invisbility cloak and devices kinda move on this. Basically it was a technology that America didn't have but now will analyze and use for themselves. Let's spin this the other way around. Russia found a technology from America and now will analyze it and use it for themselves. What changed? A country and how a group of people feel on how that nation will use it. But for the majority of American mentality. What was OHH YEAH! Turned into, those evil bastards.
Cold War aid and crap is great. I must really say that I am so amused by how many nations and the huge scope of the cold war main fights that BO2 is letting the public experience (horribly) now and that they even included China with the Mujahadeen which is INCREDIBLY awesome because ......no game ever has included China in such a way in the last decade probably
95% Chinese control of rare earth materials. So hipsterish. Again, I can already imagine people in a circle talking about it when they (and me) have little idea of how the system works. Just like the patent wars today. If you don't know how the patent system works and what can be considered one, then shut your mouth. Say it's an opinion and include that you don't know or shut your mouth. Chinese economy and people= business. Unless told to by the National Party Assembly, the Chinese economy and Capitalism there will continue like normal. People want to make money. American companies right now are sending many jobs to China. Very similar in that sense that unless huge war breaks out. The economy and military are very seperate.
And now some of you may wonder if I can even say these things as I just said that we should know it before talking about it. There is that but the point is, the facts I did include are real facts. No assumptions or highly faulty analyzation. I analyzing the analyzation by the hipsters that made the game is all. We all know the types of people that go into game development. My cousin is kinda one and I am friends with many of them. Highly opinionated but also don't see everything at the same time.
It is great that BO2 is stepping on these awesome issues. Just wish they would do it better.
