Venezuelan Tyrant Stars Popular Video Game

Mercenaries 2, the updated version of a best-selling video game produced by Pandemic Studios comes with a peculiar narrative structure: “A power-hungry tyrant messes with Venezuela's oil supply, sparking an invasion that turns the country into a warzone,” the promotional website states. But there is no need to worry: “For you, international crisis is all upside: You are a mercenary, and you profit from chaos”.

Mercenaries 2 characters include Mattias Nilsson. “a prodigiously gifted mercenary who makes his way in the world solving other people's problems with the skillful application of force.”

The ideological component is evident :O Capitalist media selling capitalism! A world of mercenaries for the strong and the rich. I bet there is a pentagon link. So sad :(

Profiting from chaos! Priceless. I think the fact that Chavez is a mafioso is unquestionable. Capitalism is just doing what they do. Selling goods and services.
