It's just a shame they threw away the neutrality and political commentary of the first game to something akin to full scale cold war propaganda in the second, I suppose the neutrality in the first was to stop them being accused of bias since they couldn't possibly portray the Americans as anything other than brave, heroic, morally superior supersoldiers that shit red, white and blue.
Compared to the mod, CoH2 is very much like our early version, which also annoyed a lot of Russians. But then, we never claimed it was historically accurate, we maintained the mod was for entertainment purposes and shouldn't be taken as fact. Quinn Duffy doesn't seem to get that part, he seems to think CoH2 is some kind of history lesson, his arrogance is mindblowing and should probably piss a lot more people off than it has done.
Haha, we'll it's pretty much what I expected from a western game developer... exaggerated, insensitive, full of cliches and stereotypes. I could probably write a lengthy article on how inaccurate the game is and why Quinn Duffy is a prick for pedalling this kind of crap, but it's not worth the energy. The Russians are giving the game a good kicking anyway, even if it is mostly over dented national pride than accuracy, I mean the sentiments in the game were mainly anti-Soviet rather than anti-Communist so I wasn't overly bothered by the narrative (other than it being cheesy, predictable garbage) but I can see why it upsets them.
I just saw your post on the "fascist and or troll" alert about me (http://www.revleft.com/vb/showpost.p...&postcount=345) . my English is not very good but, anyway... I really don't understand how you interpreted these post of mine as "apologizing for the actions of the Colombian government", could you explain to me? I described reality, I'm Colombian, I live here, I know how the country is like. Why do you think you know better than me about the country? How not thinking the same way you do makes me a troll/right winger/uribista/etc? What is there in these post that made you think I'm for the Colombian government?
the El Nacional mention doesn't have any relevance. that impunity in Venezuela is around that number is well known and I can give you dozens of sources that support such fact.
