Evil, Evidently

Nice touch with the armbands. Subtle.

Read Full Article

I lolīd.

Itīs funny, because itīs true. They couldnīt possibly look more evil unless the devil came up and possesed the two hitlers.

The one on the left looks like Hitler's emo twin! XD

The armbands actually remind me of Persona 3 FES...

Okay, wow. Nice touch with the armbands, Atlus. Subtle.

Though I must ask why?

Good one Carter! you're my favorite Carter right after Chris Carter.

You know what would be more evil?

FOUR Hitlers in Hellfire with glowy eyes flanking Glowy-Eyed Stalin.

I'm sure there was an ambiguous message that came into the creative team one day that read something like,

"Yeah we need it to be more evil. Think like... Stalin or Hitler only more so. We'll need the concept by Friday."

And the creative lead was probably like,

"Seriously..? I'll show them Stalin or Hitler."

BOOM STALIN DOUBLE HITLER IN HELLLLL!

A great, evil man once said: "You're the Diet Coke of evil: just one calorie, not evil enough!"

You know what would have been really evil? Doctor Evil. He went to evil medical school. Then add the Legion of Doom headquarters in the background (also crying lava, of course), and the evillest of the evil beings being evil, Timmy the Evil! (or at least give one or more Hitlers a Timmy the Evil helmet).

Of course! Don't you know anything about SCIENCE?

I hate the whole "bad guys have red eyes" thing that loads of cartoons, comics, games and films have going. Its really old, cheesy and stupid.

I still say the Hellgast armor is a cheap Jin-Roh: The Wolf Brigade rip-off.

It seems that we will never outgrow Wolfenstein.
Ever.

Slap a couple of creepers in there and you get the full package :D

Mr.K.:

my texture pack has creepers with glowing red eyes...
it's disturbing.

Why is it I feel more sympathy for the Helghast, then I do for the ISA?

Oh. Because Rico is a douche.

It could have been better. Evil Hitlers and Stalin could have been overlooking the death of children or kittens.

Needs more cowbell.

Evil cowbell.

Yaas very, very evil! Though want to know what will make it even more evil? I was scrolling down through the posts in this thread and I saw Bobby Kotick. Add him.

OT: As I always say another great comic! Moar I tell you gives us MOAR! (funnies)

I don't think they were EVER going for subtlety. Although frankly I'll take Nazis in space over more Communists (the new Nazis, only far less cool looking) any day, at least they looked cool.

Nice to see someone other then germans pull a hitler joke. Tho most Germans still find it's in bad taste to fo that...BTW, nice new collection of uniforms in the most evil color of all, stormtrooper-grey!

I'm going to have to find a reason to use "Hitli" now in random conversations. Thanks. :D

I try to tell people "This series is just world war II, in space." Then they rage at me about how it's not and it's an all original story line that's so inventive and if I just played it and appreciated it and loved it and wanted to marry it like they did maybe I'd finally see that I was wrong all along and...

No.

What? Do they not teach history in school anymore? Why can't these kids see this? Every time I run into these guys I have to pull out wikipedia and educate them myself. Now it's fine to love you some world war two in space. Just you know, be willing to admit it's world war two in space.

LOL good one XD

Wait?! you found someone who didn't agree that its WWII in space?! wtf?! It was so obvious from the Get go XD i mean for crying out loud just look at the Helghast helmets! and the Banners! and the fact their Heavy Machine gun is a MG42 XD

For evil I much prefer Necromancy Hitler vs. Stalin and his magic wand, guest starring Elmer Fudd as Lenin! Now with historically dubious captions!

Oh. Because Rico is a douche.

Yeah, I've always viewed the Helghast as the rightful protagonists of Killzone. They may have the design of the Nazis, and some parallels, but whereas the Nazis are universally evil based on what happened in WW2, the Helghast have never commited the same level of atrocity. They invaded a planet that they were forcibly removed from in Killzone 1, that doesn't sound so bad to me. Then they got invaded and fought back. Again, not such a terrible thing to do.
But then Killzone 3 came along and had them creating tickers from Gears of War and doing human experiments, as if Guerilla were desperately trying to convince us that they've been bad all along. Instead of making me side with the ISA, it simply conflicted with my earlier view of an otherwise industrial and practical army so made me disconnect from the story.

But Stalin was one of the good guys in WW2... Oh wait right... Communism equals eveel so it's okay then. Why not throw Castro in there too?

Firstly: There is no good in war. Period.

Second: Russia was neutral in the war. The only reason they were considered allies is because they were fighting back the Germans. Who, you know, invaded them. Russia couldn't care less about the rest of us at that point.

Ah good old glowing eyes (well to me it look like more of a flaming eyes), you can't go wrong using those to make them more evil.

Eico:

Ok Ok I'll give you that...

Anyway the real reason why he became the next evil was that he was reluctant to let go of the "conquered" countries after the war...

Add one Maggie Thatcher into that mix and there, theres your truly evil and terrifying leadership caste.

I was all ready to put on my professor glasses, but it seems it won't be necessary. Eico did a nice job on his response and it seems you already understand a thing or two about Stalin. Also, I don't really see anyone as a bad guy simply because they're a communist I don't know why you threw that at me. I made no indication of having any such a viewpoint.

As for why Stalin was considered a bad guy it probably had more to do with little nitpicking points like the mass murder, the dictatorship and the ruthless expansionism. Hell at one point he and Hitler even tag-teamed poor Poland.

Don't forget they also have stahl and his evil private military company/factory and if video games have taught us anything is that PMC's and companies are the most evil thing out there.

I brought you a shinny apple professor in order to apologize... So you can now put down your spanking ruler and hear me out.

Before this gets out of hand, first two things. I wasn't attacking whomever posted the image of Killzone (if it was you then sorry). More like making a point in general. I mean el Che was supposed to be a doctor fighting for little things like Freedom and Equality, and he ended up commiting little nitpickings like Mass Murders and executions.

But really I'm going off track, my point was that Stalin was an ally (since there's no good in war) during World War 2 and since the whole point is that Killzone is basically WW2 in space... That would be a little historically incorrect... <<<(my point) I mean his (Stalin) mass murdering of Germans wouldn't count until the fall of the Iron curtain and mostly the Cold War. Before that it was frozen hungy Nazis. And if I don't recall it wrong... He came over to the allied side when Hitler screw him over...

Needs more Bernie Madoff and Dick Cheney.

And goatees for everyone.

Yeah, the whole "take over half the continent and enslave several countries and pretend it's saving them" was totally neutral.

Neutral would be leaving Poland after getting rid of Nazis. Not staying for picnic for almost 35 years. And then making everyone love their picnic, and kill en masse anything that said picnic wasn't nice or the bees were stinging them.
