Navy SEALs Disciplined for Medal of Honor: Warfigher Consultation

:iconstareon:

I just heard about this bit of news on CNN. Apparently, the Navy SEALs who consulted with the developers of Medal of Honor: Warfighter gave away a wee bit too much. That and they didn't get permission from the Department of Defense before working with the game's developers.

Thoughts about this story? What do you think this means for Medal of Honor: Warfighter and future games based on realistic warfare?

They will still consult, just get more permission first. It's a good idea.

I'd imagine that would be the case.

Warfighter seemed more like a (stealth?) parody of current FPS games than an actual game to me. But yeah, I can't say I'll care if the series drops off after this.

I'm actually not that familiar with the game or the series, and I'm sick of seeing these "real-is-brown" first-person shooters, so nothing of value would be lost to me if this story ends up sinking the series.

Really, I just thought this was an interesting story.

It's interesting that Navy SEALs would actually provide them with genuine information, yeah. :B

Screw games based on the present or 'near future'. I want pulse rifles and mechs, or better yet, muskets and cannons.

There. Problem solved.

Have you played Borderlands or Assassin's Creed III?

No. :dummy:

I don't have anything capable of playing those.

Damn, the two things you wanted are in both those games, respectively.

Oh, I could play them, but I need a better graphics card.
