    I think Activision don't want to incite anything..

    These extremists are insane, you don't wan't to mess with them because they tend to kill people.. Like the 14 year old girl Malala Yousafzai recently shot in the head for speaking out against the Taliban in Pakistan.

    They are not normal people, There is seriously something wrong with them.

    A sad excuse of a country called Sudan.
    Probably saved them loads of criticism and PR nightmares.
    The only PR general media has however is common sense. Apparently, these days it's worse than AMD's back in Bulldozer days.

    Where two rivers join into one ;)
    Still hot as hell though.

    Some people apparently found it offensive that Allah was mentioned in a picture frame located in the level's bathroom.

    ^This doesn't happen by accident.

    Excellent argument~:toast:

    How ironic, a problem with a few not unkindly words in a scene within a bathroom, but no mention of the fact that many of these games are based on killing estranged middle eastern folk lofl?

    All these different groups....now that I think about it, are a lot like how gangs are in the US. It's just a gang in a different country, different set of rules, different religions, etc., etc...

    Humanity and common sense need not apply.

    I find it hilarious that in this game that is several years old they instantly fix something that "offends" a particular religious group, but fail to fix game-breaking bugs years after release...

    Normally a news thread wouldn't be closed, but these aren't normal circumstances. While the news article itself is sufficiently objective, I don't have faith in parts of the community's ability to have a civilized, to-the-point debate on this particular topic.
