I’m often accused of being thin-skinned or overly sensitive about certain topics, and gaming past wars is definitely one of them.
So I have to give a cheer to Ross Arbour’s article over at Nukoda:
Wii Arenâ€™t Amused: Call of Duty World at War and Nintendoâ€™s E3 Press Conference
Mr. Arbour takes exception to that portion of the Nintendo press conference where two friends were shown gleefully waggling their remotes to simulate hosing down Japanese soldiers with a flamethrower. I remember seeing that segment and having a definite “WTF?” moment. I thank Mr. Arbour for reminding me of it and bringing broader attention to the topic.
