View Full Version : Ubisoft attempting to provoke US national outrage as result of “dare from Activision"

"Yeah, we’re willing to come clean about this,” said CEO Yves Guillemot from his office full of cheese and posters of monkeys surrendering, “we did it as a dare. Bobby [Kotick] called me up the other day and asked me if I’d be interested in a little wager over who could best incense the American public with a needless bit of plot exposition. He reckons Activision have the heads-up and, to be fair, the Modern Warfare series is famous for its pointlessly emotive scenes, but we realised that if we wanted to REALLY annoy the Americans, we had to go after their heroes. But just wait till you see what he’s got planned for Modern Warfare IV next year…this is a very close race!”

The announcement of the downloadable content, which will feature a fictionalised King George Washington in a fictionalised America where a fictional organisation dominates over a fictional populace, was greeted with wide scale weeping across the country and introspective cries of “WHY DO THEY HATE OUR FREEDOM?” echoing around American cities and churches. Even the Presidential Debate last night was dominated by the issue, with Obama stating that if re-elected he will promise to “America the America we all America” and Romney claiming that “The liberty of all Americans is the freedom our children need to America for”. Results were inconclusive.

Well it's a joke. Clearly that stuff about the debate at the end isn't true.

Well if it was their goal to anger Americans with the Washington DLC then I think they don't know Americans very well being that I thought it was a brilliant idea. And Washington is by far my favorite person from the Revolution and possibly my favorite historical figure in general. If Ubisoft wants to anger Americans, they just have to give us a CE and that usually does the trick.
