On extra credits this week they talk about one very scary real thing that is happening in China I thought I'd share for comment.

I'm kind of uncomfortable when they mentioned they were anti gamergate, as if any side is a good one.

Basically exists in most countries already anyways. Just not in the same blunt form or as consolidated.

The US army developed a game to serve as a recruiting tool. I tried it, wasn't as fun as battlefield 1942

I'm not surprised, though in my head its one step closer to 1984.

I don't know if this would really work in democracy countries. I could mainly see it working in countries that the government already has a strong grip on the population, like North Korea, and China.

I was notified that they uploaded this due to being a subscriber and I gave it a watch.

This is fucked up. We need to take some sort of diplomatic action against China in response to this. What they're doing is downright indoctrination!

The only good side to that whole situation is the "I'm staying out of this" side.

We kinda laughed at that one when it came out, but yea it was a recruitment tool. This is a bit more sinister.

I am not surprise China did this. The only areas in China that his system will not work well is rural areas and Hong Kong. Hong Kong is a capitalism city through and through.

I remember in the early CD-Rom days, when the USMC's TV ads tried to compare training for the Marine Corps to being a "knight" in a fantasy game for real, or in a chess game for real...
Boy, are YOU guys going after the wrong demographics.

And call me when the Army can develop a recruitment game as good as Valkyria Chronicles.

It was an all right game. Though I wanna laugh at the Army Sniper School instructor that came up with the idea two competent snipers would end up trapped on a bridge pulling a last stand on it.
