They are what some can consider close especially MW2. I hadn't even looked up their release dates till today.

We are also talking about an incident that happened fairly recently in comparison, I also don't know how many WWI vets that play video games, but they may have been upset about it.

I am a veteran and I wasn't upset, but I wasn't really paying attention either, however I assure you wouldn't have been upset.



Its pretty much safe to say its not offending anyone (here at least.) I hate blanket statements.
Troll? Go to my first post. I specifically said WaW and CoD4. Nice tries though.

armistice day, the day the great war(ww1) "ended", in america we celebrate it as veterans day...i'm sure some one else brought this up in the thread (haven't read the whole thing tbh)

9/11 is my best friends bday, its kinda hard to be "upset" on this day, as we suck jello shot off of some well equipped beauty...

there is a time for mourning and a time for irrational mourning, i think we are at the irrational part honor the day, don't cripple the world in doing so.
I don't memorize holidays true, but I assumed he had gotten the month wrong.

I wasn't really paying attention, I am sure you are used to that. At least I got half of it right, so really its just World at War you have an issue with the fact that I don't have an issue with.

World at War was released on November 11th, 2008.

Never purchased the title and had no issues with it because I didn't follow it. I don't know if I would have released it on that day myself, but like I said previously, there may have been people upset with that.

I don't get what your point is, what does anything really have to do with a day of remembrance starting with the end of WWI have to do with a terrorist attack 10 years ago? I asked for people to focus on this particular release.

Rage itself doesn't have anything to do with Terrorism, I don't think anyways.

Can you enlighten me, what does a person purchasing the game has to do with the release date? On your first post, you've strongly emphasized how Rage is coming out 2 days after 9/11, not even on 9/11. So where does that lead us to?

EDIT: Nice ninja edit.

We aren't discussing whether if Rage is related with terrorism, you were strictly focusing on how OFFENSIVE it is for being released TWO days after 9/11. If Rage being released TWO days AFTER 9/11 is "offensive", then imagine how "offensive" WaW is. A WW2 shooter being released on Remembrance day. Play as Japanese and kill US soldiers. Great, just great.

11/11 is not just to remember the end of ww1, it is to remember and honor all that have fallen, given their life to the freedom of this country in war, it is also to remember and honor all that have served. it can be said, in the US that our service men are often marginalize and disrespected, as people confuse duty with politics, and take it out on the ones who choose to serve.

i'm honestly not understanding why you are wanting to get all bent out of shape of a release date that is 2 days after the event you are wanting to get everyone bent out of shape for.

the only reason it seems more disrespectful to you now, is because you, i and 90% of this forum are living witness with a living memory, yes when 9/11 is brought up in convo or the news, it still gets an emotional response from me, forcing me to partially to relive the emotions i had on that day.

is releasing a game 2 days after the 10th year anniversary disrespectful? no, cause the world has to move on, we can't be paralyzed by grief and despair.

This is pretty common. Actually you'd be hard pressed to find a game that isn't released on different days in USA, Europe, Australia and sometimes Asia. I'm guessing this is because of shipping, server stability (doing this limits the number of players signing up at once) and probably multiple other things.

Off the top of my head I know that Dirt 2, COD4, Cataclysm, Bulletstorm, and BC2 came out on different days in different parts of the world.

I'm over it.
post #49 of 49
People need to get over their emotions in my opinion. This thing was 10 years ago. You're not even talking about the day it happened but two days afterwards. I guess every week of 9/11 all commerce needs to just shut down right?

Honestly I'm American and I wouldn't even be offended if the game dropped on 9/11 itself. If one took the time you could probably go through history and find some horrible tragedy that has happened on every day of the year.
