‘Battlefield V’ Unveiled, Release Date Announced

World War II was the bloodiest conflict in human history. Lasting from 1939 to 1945, the conflict saw over 30 nations and 100 million people involved in a globe spanning conflict the world had never seen before.

The popular culture depictions and reenactments of the Second World War typically focus on the larger battles like the Siege of Stalingrad, The Storming of Normandy, and the Battle of Midway.

Though these battles proved to be key to the Allies winning the war they often overshadow some other battles in parts of the world where people lived and died for just as noble a cause.

Dice and Electronic Arts hope to try to tell some of those stories in the newly unveiled war game, Battlefield V.

Under the Light of the Six Moons: Remembering a Forgotten SEGA Classic

The swashbuckling adventure story was a popular genre back in the day of pulp serial novels and early film. Noble adventurers facing down the nefarious wiles of a dastardly villain. Treasure filled voyages on the high seas while contending with devilish pirates and fiendish rogues.

Video games haven’t really been able to capture that kind of optimistic and chivalrous adventure, but there was at least one game that stood out from its gloomier, darker contemporaries.

Dino-Bites: When did the Dinosaurs Live?

Humanity has held dominion over the earth for a blink in the cosmic scale. Life has existed on this planet for 3.8 billion years, and we have only been here for around a 100,000 to 200,000 years. Civilization has only been a part of our history for around 5000 years.

The dinosaurs ruled the world for nearly 180 million years.

Dino-Bites: What is a Dinosaur?

Imagine the variety of life we have on Earth now.

Mammals, reptiles, fish, birds, and so on. They’ve all been here a long time. Through the process of time and evolution they’ve changed drastically.

Some species, like sharks, have barely changed at all in millions of years. But some, like the sparrows and robins in your backyard, and the chickens on the farm down the road, can trace their lineage back to some of the largest and most impressive creatures to ever walk the Earth. The Dinosaurs.

A Mesozoic Proposal: Making Dinosaurs Relevant Again

Alright I have to ask the most important question, but first let me point something out:

Dinosaurs ruled the Earth for around 200 times longer than we have. They came in all shapes and sizes and survived in every type of environment. Some were as big as a Boeing 747, and some could fit into the palm of your hand. They shared our planet with some of the largest and most fascinating marine creatures to ever swim the oceans, while incredible flying reptiles glided through the skies above.

So that brings us back to my question:

Why do we have to suffer through the 500 trillionth zombie apocalypse movie or TV show when there’s literally 200 million years of awesome dinosaurs to pull from?
