    Its graphics are on par with Call of Duty, but Glorious Mission has a whole different perspective than what even the most experienced gamer might be used to.


    It targets U.S. troops.
    That's right, developed by China’s Giant Network Technology Co. and backed by the People's Liberation Army (P.L.A.) this first-person shooter paints U.S. soldiers as the enemy, according to WIred. Oddly enough, it's also supposed to be modeled after the U.S. Army-made shooter game America's Army.

    While games like Homefront and the Call of Duty series have often poised Eastern Asian or Middle Eastern people as enemies without serious repercussions, some worry that this game leads to confusion between military thinking and simulation.

    Yet we can't make a movie that shows China as the enemy...

    Yes we can.

    I bet it would be a hit, too, if you did it as a remake of Red Dawn.

    his film's storyline was originally intended to be based on a Chinese invasion but was later edited to depict a North Korean invasion in post-production due to concerns from distributors.[4]

    This will probably be very popular among those who enjoy demonstrating their lack of patriotism and superiority over the rest of the country. In fact, I predict that it will be featured in every faculty lounge from Berkeley to Cambridge, not to mention every madrassah that actually has the infrastructure to run video games. I wonder if Wei or KS has ordered their copy yet?

    more like MGM was worried about a backlash and lack of support from Chinese market over the movie


    whats even more ironic is that Homefront was written by the same guy that wrote the original Red Dawn, with the same plot of the new Red Dawn. So my guess is that Homefront was suppose to be a tie in with the new Red Dawn movie till MGM had their melt down

    Chinese market? They lead the world in pirating software. I wouldn't be too concerned about it from a market perspective.

    They can but Hollywood doesn't have the scrote to do it. Remember Sum of all Fears? In the book it's Islamic terrorism but Hollywood didn't want to upset the muzzies so they changed it to white neo-Nazis.

    I'd imagine it's gonna be more in the Chinese market then our own.

    Honestly though, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 had us killing Russian (not Soviet) soldiers left and right. Even a mission where a US troop went in and killed hundreds of Russian Civilians in an airport. Couldn't expect it to be long before someone came out with a game that had us as the main target.
    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.
