    I'll be at the pub waiting for you, THAT would be fun. Really. Just come. Hate and love are just transformations and variations of barbecue and booze, we can manage.

    Okay, I'll said what you want to hear.

    USA is a great and peaceful country. Their technologies are advanced, military power is superb and their people are smart.

    Happy now?

    The last Medal of Honor wasn't even that bad. It was fun. I only played the single player, and although it was short I liked the theme of "fight todays war"

    who cares. Not every game needs to have a multiplayer that is good or at all.

    You are right, I do miss the days when multiplayer was not the focal point.

    I have a friend who says that games are pointless without multiplayer. Which is so wrong because there are so many games out there that are so good, that don't have multiplayer and don't need it. For instance Half Life 2

    Hey, that's cool. Any time a huge corporation like EA volunteers to give some of their profits away to charity is a good thing. Who cares how good or how shitty the game is? Who really give a fuck about this being purely a PR move on their part? They are breaking north with what will likely be a large chunk of money for a good cause. Sure, it's a combination PR/tax write off move, but the money is going to help deployed, injured or returning troops.

    They are and were fighting a war in another country, whether they wanted to be there or not. For that they have my eternal respect.

    You can bash my nation all you want to, I don't care. For all the bad that you perceive my nation as doing, my nation is by far the most charitable country on this very planet. Hell, we're the most charitable nation in the solar system.
