Modern Warfare 2 Not Recalled In Russia After All 94

thief21 writes "After claims that console versions Modern Warfare 2 had been recalled in Russia due to complaints from politicians and the gaming public over the infamous airport slaughter scene, it turns out the stories were completely untrue. Activision never released a console version of the game in Russia." Instead, they simply edited the notorious scene out of the PC version. They did this of their own volition, since Russia doesn't have a formal ratings committee.

Phaethon360 sends in a piece that looks at how quickly game costs can add up these days, now that DLC, microtransactions and standalone expansions are commonplace, writing, "If you were trying to the think of the most expensive games to play, Rock Band or a monthly-fee MMORPG would come to mind. But Halo 3 is right up there, too." It's reminiscent of a recent post at IncGamers where the author tallied up how much he'd spent on World of Warcraft over the past several years, and was astonished to realize it numbered in the thousands of dollars.

Cell phones in shanty towns do exist now. In fact, there is a company in Kenya marketing ones that can be recharged by solar power. And even in the third world, EVERYONE has bad ass cell phones. Maybe not shoes, running water or electricity, but they have that.

And they do prefer animals for precisely that reason; gas is expensive, grass is everywhere.

Sometimes, weird developments actually occur in the real world, so why not in imaginary one?
