Firstly, the whole replacing China with Korea (North I'll assume) out of sensitivity to political climate?
Yeah, that makes total sense because, you know, it's China these days that's so quick and unstable as to retaliate upon us because of representation
in a video game. I could completely buy that, sure.
Secondly, the whole newspaper thing about a nuclear meltdown in Japan? A country the size of California littered from top to bottom with nuclear
reactor plants? Why would anyone ever consider them having one unless they KNEW it was going to occur just Days from the release of their game? It
just wouldn't happen I tell ya!
Look, sometimes bad things happen because, well, the planet is and always has been a volatile place. Unforseen tragedy occurs when the earth shrugs.
More so these days, and more noticeably, because in the last 30-40 years alone our world population had near tripled at a rate not seen in any century
prior. We trend to forget that. Or technology in that time as well, has itself advanced at a rate well beyond exponential connecting the entire world
It's easy to find bogeymen in evey shadow to blame and explain the unexpected and unforeseeable upon. It's harder still to accept that what is, just
is. Pointing fingers at imagined or implied villains does little to rectify what had happened, better to deal with what is and try to resolve that.
