    10, 20, 70 respectively...

    Seriously tho, what's worse: alien-lesbian sex in a video game or capital punishment for alleged drug offenses? :rolleyes:

    Awww the vid is broken for me, won't load, from another one I've seen it looks incredibly tame, all I saw were two people's heads looking like they were spaced out and then a titanic style hand on glass.

    Although I should be geeky and point out the blue guys don't actually have a gender.

    50 (it doesn't affect me directly but censorship for the sake of censorship is the first step towards the Great Firewall of China, which is no good for anyone);
    50 (ditto);
    0 (really, how desperate do you have to be to get your kicks from soft core machinima?)

    Ok.. so if i show some alien frog sex.. the whole world is yelling "offensive" and "BAN" and "outrageous" etc. Lucky for me i live in a country where it is normal that everybody lies topless on the beach... And nobody staring at it or start screaming about it, unless you have some american friends to come on vacation and insist to let me take a picture of them with every topless chick on the beach to show all the friends at home...

    BUT! if they see a 'accidental' titty on the us telly.. boy that whole country is going crazy. And now singapore is joining them too.

    If this is the clip in question, than I've seen worse (thinking about "Enter the Matrix", for example). :eyebrow:

    Besides, if the game has a suitable age rating sticker, no problem... Oh wait.... No one cares about the age rating (not even the parents). :worried:

    I'm sure the Daily Mail will be up in arms about it.

    indeed, but some parents do.... the responsible type.... the ones that are rare.

    anyway, i think this is kind of exaggerated...... let me rephrase that: this is as exaggerated as banning hands because of a 1 finger salute.

    That was the most disappointing thing Ive seen since tony Blair stepped down from being prime minister (and then Gordon brown stepped up - sigh)

    I have a feeling that it's not really a lesbian scene from the prequel book and the names uttered...

    So I haven't seen any footage of the game before this and now I think it's actually looking to be quite neat. And not just because of the lesbians.
