BWAHAHAHA. Now THAT'S entertainment!

Classy.

Hey, if it wasn't for date rape, he'd never have gotten laid.

You need to book a ticket to Windsor. I'll take you to the bars and introduce you to some nice, living, breathing women.

Any bets the developer is based in Japan?

gotta be a hoax. surely?

scootah: gotta be a hoax. surely?

I just checked out the game's website. No such luck.

This isn't just sick. It's disturbing. You think that young men already grow up with warped perceptions of women and sexuality?

Oh, give me a break. It's juvenile fun.

Now, now, all you NeoPuritains... it's just a game and a form of entertainment. Bash this and bash all of Adult entertainment - and what would Fark be without the Boobies?

good good. i was just thinking this morning, that the world is running low on mysoginists and rapists. Glad to see someone's taken on the responsibility of breeding more.

Easy on the hyperbole. Neo-Puritanism would be if I called for the game to be banned. I never did that. I just think that it's awfully sad that anyone would buy it.
 
2005-02-10 01:32:39 PM  
It will probably have a M rating anyways. I know my roommate's prolly gonna buy it. Huzzah.

On one hand? I hate censorship and hate anti game nazi's. However I'm 23 and my ethics and morality are pretty fully developed. My view on women has been ~firmly~ established (By years of net pr0n). And I know right from wrong and have a sense of personal responsibility.

On the other hand? Drugged up date rape isn't something I'd want the average frat boy seeing protrayed as a light hearted and amusing occurence. Its certainly not something highschool kids should be exposed too.

Desensitizing kids too shiat like date rape just isn't cool. If the game is XXX rated or something and only availible to people over 18, and that policy is strictly enforced? Ugh, but fair enough. I'd kinda hope is discouraged on campuses and shiat. Kids in college still have that sheltered life view and the sense that at worst they'll get a slap on the wrist and told to go sit in the corner and think about what they've done. Date rape is a big enough problem already without demonstrating to horny frat boys that its easy and fun.
 
2005-02-10 01:48:17 PM  
This is just beyond creepy.
 
2005-02-10 04:06:45 PM  
A game can have all the tits and date rape in the world, or can be about a cute little racoon and his hilarious capers.

If it's fun, people will play it. If not, they won't, in a vast majority of cases. This will - most likely - suck, and I doubt its influence or exposure will go very far at all.
 
2005-02-10 04:29:20 PM  
Mommy, I'm scared of the joystick-nipples...
 
2005-02-10 07:23:17 PM  
This game looks pretty awesome. I bet the game play will suck though.
 
2005-02-10 07:36:26 PM  
What I don't understand about LSL:MCL was that even though it has an M rating, it only shows bare boobies. It draws a huge "censored" bar over beavers almost the entire bottom half of a nude person's body.
 
2005-02-10 08:44:01 PM  
The game looks like total garbage, but I'll probably buy it anyways just for the precident.

I'm SO SICK of "Mature" games getting censored at the last minute.

(ie. The Punisher)

I'll support any "Mature" game that doesn't pull it's punches.

Won't SOMEONE think of the children???

/obvious
 
2005-02-10 09:28:51 PM  
Sure fake sex looks fun, but think of the children. They'll soon move up to fake killing! and that's a fake SIN!
 
2005-02-10 09:29:34 PM  
Another reason I don't want to have children. I don't want my son playing "Super Sex Rapist 2020" and my inner conflict over morals and free speech getting in the way.
 
2005-02-10 09:30:21 PM  
Don't tell me this is American! I could accept that such a game exists in Japan, but not here.

I'd beat to it.....
 
2005-02-10 09:31:37 PM  
What's the point of even saying anything? 12 year-olds are already sluts and gang members, what will this game do? Nothing. If people are worrying it will objectify women, then they don't need to play a video game for it. Women do it to themselves for their own benefit; there's no problem here.

Damn those women and their 'I Love Sex' T-shirts.
 
2005-02-10 09:32:02 PM  
The video download links sure are clogged up for everyone being so offended about this...

I just feel I should mention that Al Lowe, the creator of LSL, had nothing to do with the latest installment. The first six games of the series were all intelligent, witty puzzle games with some T&A and adult humor thrown in. The first three games in particular rocked my DOS machine in the late 80s...these new games are just tasteless.
 
2005-02-10 09:33:15 PM  
you know, this shiat is scary. one of my friends doesn't date because his standards have been effed up by dating sims and hentai. i'm sure he's jacking off to this article right now.
 
2005-02-10 09:34:18 PM  
think of the kittens............................. that all just died in a gory explosion
 
2005-02-10 09:34:20 PM  
AntiNorm, ESRB regs say you can't show Wally's little brother even in an M-rated game, and most retailers won't carry AO-rated (adults only) titles. They did release an uncensored version of Magna Cum Laude on the PC, available only via download.

Errr, or so I heard.
 
2005-02-10 09:34:35 PM  
Nice to see things have advanced so far since MacPlaymate in '86...wait, no they haven't. Feh.

FINALLY!! A game I'll be good at!!
 
2005-02-10 09:34:39 PM  
Back in the 8-bit days this was about as good as it got.

Wow. That's hi-farkin'-larious. Seriously.


Plus, the game is definitely going to be crap.
 
2005-02-10 09:35:29 PM  
I got mines on preorder!!

/HELL NO!
 
2005-02-10 09:35:51 PM  
Drugging your date...looking up her skirt...playing with her breasts?

Pffft, this game has got nothing on the spraying of ass-water as seen in Tsuki Possesion. And that's just one possible warped storypath. Having played through the entire game, I've lost faith in humanity.

Warning: link NSF anyone.

This is pathetic. Go look up some porn if you need it. Interactivity only counts is there's something that isn't a bunch of 0s and 1s at the end.
 
2005-02-10 09:40:26 PM  
Oh, the ENTERTAINARITY!
