Change to 'Plot' section[edit]

I have modified the plot section of this article to reflect the content portrayed in the video game rather than the novel. The virus in the game was called "Ebola Brahma" rather than the codename "Shiva" from the novel. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 00:19, 10 August 2009 (UTC)

The Origin is wrong[edit]

Based on the post-mortem on Gamasutra link Red Storm was founded first and while Tom Clancy did participate in the brainstorm sessions, he didn't contribute much. The team had originally decided on the FBI Hostage Rescue Team, about rescuing hostages. Later they expanded the scope to all sorts of covert missions, and renamed it "Black Ops". THEN they found that Tom Clancy decided to base his next novel on terrorism AND a team to combat it. So they had to make changes to their game in order to match up with the book, and when the game is finished, the novel isn't yet, so they had to create their own --Kschang77 01:49, 14 December 2006 (UTC)

Of note[edit]

This game seem to be associated with some controversy that this wikipedia article fails to mention. There was apparently a domain name used in the game that contains only pornographic links when visited with a browser and a comic drawn of the producer of this game prompted legal action I feel that these should probably be mentioned in this article. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 06:57, 28 March 2008 (UTC)

Merger proposal[edit]

The following discussion is closed. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section.

The result was to keep the article as-is. (unanimous consensus to not merge; merger proposal will be set for Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six: Vegas and its sequel before deletion is considered.) MuZemike (talk) 19:08, 24 August 2008 (UTC)

I propose that Michael Walters be merged into Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six (video game). The former has little, if any, notability as its own article. It can be better mentioned here as a subsection of the Plot section. Please discuss below, and indicate if you support or oppose the merger. If no discussion is started within five days of the sign date, then the merger proposal automatically passes. MuZemike (talk) 04:54, 19 August 2008 (UTC)

  • Oppose As far as I can tell, he doesn't appear in this game. He is already mentioned in Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six which is about the franchise in general, and has brief mentions in the Vegas games where he appears. I don't claim he it notable, but if you think there is anything that still wants merging, rather than just deleting the article, those articles are more appropriate targets.

  • Oppose - delete article instead. Simply not notable, no out of universe references. --Oscarthecat (talk) 09:51, 23 August 2008 (UTC)
  • Oppose - I'm pretty sure he doesn't actually appear in this one. --SamB135 (talk) 22:18, 23 August 2008 (UTC)

The article could use a screenshot of the game. Could someone get one? (talk) 20:11, 4 January 2010 (UTC)
