@mb: honestly dude i really think this was something out of his control and legitimately fucked up. I understand you're fed up with the guy but in this case i think it's warranted to have a modicum of sympathy for hin.
Are people actually hemming and hawing over this? cause i think this is fucked and really nobody deserves this. I wish phil the best and i hope we don't see the last of him; for the record i do admire the guy overall. He really doesnt deserve this.
You could have given me one hundred chances to figure out what real life geo-political event Battlefield Hardline relates most closely to. I would never have guessed Ferguson/militarized police.
i did actually think of it myself in the last couple of days and there's a bit of a parallel, but only in the police being heavily militarized. obviously it ends there, but it wasn't a far-off leap to make. maybe i'm a simpleton when it comes to seeing allegories to real life in media, meh...
