Greenpeace Invades Ship Simulator Extremes

August 24, 2010 -

Game developer VSTEP is putting a special Greenpeace campaign in its upcoming ship simulation game, Ship Simulator Extremes. The Greenpeace campaign is what the company calls "one of three realistic campaigns" that will be featured in the game when it is released later this month.

The campaign lets players sail Greenpeace vessels like the Esperanza to confront various anti-environmental forces and evildoers including polluters who dump oil and illegal toxic waste into the ocean, whale hunting vessels and more. Players will also be able to take control of the Rainbow Warrior III a full year before its actual completion as well. Finally, the game will feature "nine historical Greenpeace missions" complete with full motion documentary footage and interviews with Greenpeace Captain Pete Wilcox as a reward.

For a sneak peek of the Greenpeace part of the game, check out this video. Ship Simulator Extremes will be released on August 27 at retail and through various digital distribution channels.

How about a game where Greenpeace makes brown people starve to death?  They like to dress in hazmat suits, invite the press, and then destroy acres of crops in 2nd-3rd world countries.  I'm sure all those brown people are happy to die so long as they know they won't be eating any genetically-modified crops or supporting synthetic fertilizers!  Greenpeace FTW!

The potential for sequels is there too- since so much of the developing world depends on modern farm technology for food (synthetic fertilizer and engineered crops), there are plenty of crops to destroy and misguided brown people for Greenpeace to let starve to death.

Re: Greenpeace Invades Ship Simulator Extremes

What are you talking about?

Re: Greenpeace Invades Ship Simulator Extremes

Greenpeace opposes the use of modern farm technology and has even gone so far as to destroy crops themselves (for the press).  Most of the developing world is fed only due to modern agriculture.  However, these white-boys with dreadlocks & bongos are more concerned with some kind of arbitrary anti-corporate philosophy than the needs of the starving people of the developing world.  Hence, Greenpeace is a racist organization.

Re: Greenpeace Invades Ship Simulator Extremes

Greenpeace was destroying open-air crop tests in the UK at one point, with the idea that such tests would (by their nature) contaminate other local crops since you would get cross polination.

Which kinda makes sense since they were tests that if everything is ok, no problem, but if they found issues with the crop, it would be too late since the nature of the test allowed the crop to spread into the wild and thus would be mixing with food crops.

That being said, while I can kinda follow their logic, I think their fear is annoyingly overblown.  However, no one starved because of these actions.. they were small scale tests designed for research and getting approvals.  I doubt any of the test fields had any food go into the general supply (since it was not approved for even animal consumption yet).

Well, at least it's not those Sea Shepherd douchebags...

Re: Greenpeace Invades Ship Simulator Extremes

I was thinking something similiar.  Greenpeace.. while I do not always agree with them.. I can respect.  The Sea Shepherds... way to take a noble cause (and crime) and turn it into a joke....

Goth_SkunkLike most MMOs, TERA *really* starts at the end-game. The majority of players have reached the level cap, and new players have a hard time finding others around their level to party up with.08/01/2015 - 4:49am
MattsworknameAndrew: Im not sure Im the one to be explainging this really, Im not sure im articulating it right07/31/2015 - 9:20pm
Big PermI got to around 30 in tera before giving up. I liked my sorc, but I need better motivation to grind07/31/2015 - 9:14pm
Andrew EisenAh TERA. I made a video about TERA censorship. One of my more popular ones. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AO26h9etTbw07/31/2015 - 8:52pm
Goth_SkunkI've been playing TERA all day. Just took a break to barbecue some chicken. :3 And Andrew: I'm using Cabal to suggest a group of people secretly united in some private views or interests within a community.07/31/2015 - 8:50pm
Andrew EisenI'd love to but I'm at work. But once I get home... I'm going to work out for a while. But after THAT... I'm going to shower. Then eat. Then prep tomorrow's meals. And THEN play video games! YEAH!!!07/31/2015 - 8:38pm
Big Permlol, ya'll are still going back and forth? Take a break and play some video games07/31/2015 - 8:37pm
Andrew EisenGoth - Are you using "cabal" to describe a group of writers or to suggest they all worked together in secret to publish those articles?07/31/2015 - 8:30pm
Andrew EisenMatt - That doesn't disprove the general premise of the various articles as that's not what they're about. Unless, again, he's talking about a different batch of articles.07/31/2015 - 8:28pm
Goth_SkunkThe difference between one voice being offensive and a cabal being offensive.07/31/2015 - 8:22pm
MechaCrashFunny how "you're offended, so what" flips into "we're offended, retract everything and apologize."07/31/2015 - 8:18pm
MattsworknameIts not the only argument he points out ,its just one of them07/31/2015 - 8:06pm
Mattsworknameidea that Gamers as the articel puts it, the "White male sterotype are dead, essentially was compltely false07/31/2015 - 8:03pm
MattsworknameThe video actually shows that the shaw study actually disproves the Premise of the artices by showing that the "Gamer" dentity, has no actual meaning to thsoe who use it other then "I play games", its not connected to race, gender, or orientation. So the07/31/2015 - 8:01pm
Andrew EisenWith the exception of a brief mention in Golding's Tumbr post. Even so, he's talking about gamer identity, not desire for diversity in gaming.07/31/2015 - 7:50pm
Andrew EisenI'm not calling his examination of the Shaw study into question. I haven't read the study nor seen his video. All I'm saying is that it has nothing to do with the Gamers Are Dead articles I've been referencing for the last year.07/31/2015 - 7:49pm
MattsworknameSome times sargon just goes off on tangents but in this case he was pretty direct and went through teh research in detail, did the whole first video about the shaw study itself07/31/2015 - 7:45pm
Andrew EisenWell, unless it's disingenuous twaddle but I like to give people the benefit of the doubt.07/31/2015 - 7:42pm
Andrew EisenGotta be. The argument you describe makes no sense otherwise.07/31/2015 - 7:40pm
MattsworknameThat is a possibility, they looked like offical articles but its possible they are different from the articles you mentoin07/31/2015 - 7:28pm
