Sitting your mum’s basement with a bowl of Cheetos staring at your avatar whilst twiddling a little joystick doesn’t make you a soldier. Soldiers don’t have a redo button, they either do their job perfectly or it stops really fucking quick and for-fucking-ever.
I know I kind of sound like a geezer, but if there was a soldier in all of us, stop-loss wouldn’t be necessary. Soldiers wouldn’t have to run to three or more back to back tours and suffer the mental trauma that their governments use to deny them support on their return.
And in this week of all the weeks of the year, the creators illustrate their level of stupidity by selling the game using that tag-line. It’s a week when we remember real soldiers and their heroism.
To make that claim proves just what a bunch of c***s the developers are. I hope that it doesn’t sell a copy but then again there’s enough sad and lonely wastes of skin out there who might buy into that tag line.
Boris even points out that metaphorical injuries and overblown hyperbole are not limited to anonymous pasty faced, overweight, basement dwelling, mummy boys as well. Our own troop hating, waste of space Prime Minister thinks he is a casualty of war now too.
