This is as bad as Fat Cat being banned for promoting obesity. Political Correctness gone wrong. When will the world grow the hell up and get the hell over it. Censorship is ruining the modern day!

I personally don't like seeing the nazi symbol anywhere... video game, book, wherever. It's a disgusting symbol that represents a whole lot of evil that nearly destroyed the world. I don't feel comfortable owning any object that glorifies or even recognizes its existence other than a history book.

I know growing up and being interested in Japanese comics/anime for a time, I've seen quite a few published drawings/promotional material depicting characters in Nazi regalia. I'm not quite sure why. Anyway, surprised me they would censor it in the game, for that reason.

Considering most video games that have swastika emblems in it involve KILLING Nazis as an enemy, I don't really think of it as "glorification."

you sir are an absolute fool. you obviously haven't even researched it in the *bleep*ing slightest or you would know what the swastika truly stands for. This being Peace and prosperity. Adolf Hitler made this the symbol of the Nazi Party because his ultimate goal was to bring Germany out of the failure and poverty that world war 1 brought about.

I love how 'pwn' is etched into the gun.

TheImperfectIdeal, I'm pretty sure he means how it represents the Nazis (that's what they chose to represent them and that's how people see it) and how they massacred thousands of people. It's not about the symbol itself. So don't be such a dick.

Now please, in the future if you're going to insult something, please research it a little more instead of making misguided insinuations about it.
so... since he's just trying to troll i assume there is a reportbutton somewhere?

Totally agreed that northern is a bit naive sometimes but.. well i didn't have anything for the 'but' phrase. If he's trying to troll he's not doing a good job at it; it actually is an opinion many people have.

a rather dumb and illogical one. nobody ever mentioned a thing about the hindu swatsika from the start and the way i hear things from whatshisname he states that the nazi symbol aint that bad because it has a distant relative symbol who stands for for peace and joy... which kinda does not compute with it's european relative that reminds people about world war and holocausts for a good reason.

i can sympathise with northern49 on this one. dislike towards a symbol which played a vital role in a time of war might mean he learned a valuable lesson from it.

The nazi symbol is the old greek symbol, which did mean peace and prosperity if I recall, but the nazi symbol is backwards, which I interpret as meaning war, etc.

And no. I'm not trolling. It's my actual opinion on this subject. The symbol makes me uncomfortable and I would choose not to buy a game, movie, etc. if it contains swastikas.

Exception being Inglorious Bastards. And some shooters, but only if they use them as backdrops and not in excess.

What makes it even worse is that both my grandfathers faught in World War II and I feel like a neonazi white trash loser when I am in the company of the symbol.

And please, I'm sorry, but whatever the Nazi symbol may have meant prior to WW2 isn't what it means now. The definition of a symbol can change, and the symbol now represents war, destruction, murder, suicide, dead children, the holocaust, hitler, the SS, d-day, etc.

^ Actually the backwards swastika comes from many cultures, and is prevalent in Buddhism in particular. Also (this is kind of hilarious), at the Taiwanese National Museum, a friend and I stumbled upon an old artifact (a vase or pot) decorated with a ring of swastikas. As in actual ones, turned the same way and everything. Spent a good half an hour trying to figure out how that's possible since the artifact came from the B.C.'s.
