Well folks, looks like I'm going to be having pretty major jaw surgery soon for a TMJ problem. This means lots of Ice Cream, Oxycotton, Wadded up bandages.. and of course VIDEO GAMES. It will be good for me to reunite with my 'inner' nerd while I am recovering. So I've been slowing upgrading my computer so it can handle the latest gaming parameters.. and I have to say I was quite shocked at the content being included in this years releases. Three struck me as being particularly menacing: Hellgate London, World in Conflict, and Bioshock.
Hellgate: London takes place in 2038, 18 years after the start of a war: London has been invaded by demons from Hell. These particular hellions are a tireless lot, and have been looking for a way into our universe for a long time. Up until recently, humans have had many champions looking to hold back the flood. Various real-world events are referenced in the background of the Hellgate story as averted crossover attempts. The Crusades were actually undertaken to fight back the minions of Hell, as was the charring of London in the great fire to wipe out the Plague. According to the story line, the famous Knights Templar were the keepers of knowledge on how to battle these demonic forces. Unfortunately, these heroes underwent a charring of their own at the hands of a jealous King Phillip IV, who hated the power they held in the world at large. While the Knights Templar survived as an organization, their numbers were severely diminished and were forced to remain in hiding to stay alive.
World in Conflict is set in an alternate-history version of 1989. Instead of the Berlin Wall falling and communism collapsing, the Soviet Union launches an assault on Western Europe, and the United States rushes its forces in to aid its Western allies. Four months into the conflict, after the US Navy has been attrited down, the USSR launches a surprise invasion in Seattle and pushes inland.. eventually letting you experience a sample of the European conflict, battle in remote areas of the Soviet Union, and bring the fight to New York City. Tactical Nukes are a big 'draw' in the game.
The game Bioshock has an Atlantean vibe to it.. and the underwater city the game takes plane in is called Rapture.. The plot deals heavily with genetic manipulation, and the main resources in the game are ADAM, EVE, and Money.
The game takes place during 1960 in Rapture, a fictional underwater city secretly built in 1946 on the mid-Atlantic seabed, entirely self-sufficient and powered by submarine volcanoes. Constructed by business magnate Andrew Ryan, Rapture was envisioned as the only place on Earth that could support individualism, and populated by those Ryan believed exemplified the best in humanity. During the early 1950s, this population peaked at several thousand, though ranks of elite emerged from the rest, discomforting many.
Anyone else find these games to be telling of where the social mind-Psyops are being focused right now?
