Does anyone know whats been removed/edited yet?
 
2007-10-08 02:41:41 PM  
All things considered I'd rather see a gentle boobie now and then, than watch someone's head get blown off in slow motion 3-D every 30 seconds.

Anything resembling "fun".

Meh... I'm not gonna play some game that is deliberately marketed to fans of the Insane Clown Posse. Period.

Both of them?

Hopefully the game (edited, unfortunately) will become a hit on the Wii, thus leading to more adult themed games on the system.

Sorry couldn't read the article through all the f*cking flash ads for newer sh*ttier movies on their way to the screen.

You must live in a city on the coast. Or some place that isn't chock-full of working-class white kids. I literally cannot believe the amount of "juggaloes" I run across on a daily basis. How are these guys still selling records?
 
2007-10-08 02:46:45 PM  
This thread is worthless with out pictures of boobies.
 
2007-10-08 02:46:48 PM  
Its like, the British and the Americans got together and someone said "you can either have tits or guns, which is it going to be?" and the British said "Tits!" and American was like "Hell yeah guns" and that's basically how a bill becomes a law.

So is this game as boring as the first one except with more graphic death scenes?
 
2007-10-08 02:48:00 PM  
I played all the way through the first Manhunt and vaguely remember being entertained, but I don't remember much about it. That's what happens when you do all your gaming stoned.

Good thing we have a nice long protracted war to help thin out their numbers.

Boobies are good on 2 levels.

Level 1: They are soft so when you punch them it does not hurt your hand. If they were not there to punch then why women evolve that way?

Level 2: They make good handles to hold onto when you say another womans name in bed. I think they call that the bucking bronco.

Hah. You just can't get away with sarcasm anymore. At least I can't. Although I stand by my previous point. This game looks tailor-made for the ICP faithful.

Luckily there's a group out there that wants to take that decision away from all of us so you won't be bothered with 'want' in the future.

How pathetic this whole situation is.

Some of the more graphic death sequences (I believe removing testicals with a pliers was taken out) and all of the kill sequences have had either a blur effects or the lighting gets darker making it harder to see what's going on.

When the fark did we allow these people to decide our morals for us? When did this happen? This amazes me to no end, that in this day and age when we should have learned from all the stupidity of censorship in other mediums in the past (the Cannibal Holocaust trials, anyone?) we're still stuck in the Stone Age.

fark the BBFC, and fark David Cooke. fark them right in their stupid ears while Brian Cox whispers sweet nothings into it.


I think the author needs to play some "Manhunt 2" to work out some aggression. He's surprised that people get squeamish/offended by this stuff? OMGZ! We're living in the Stone Age because people are offended by a game based on graphic murder!

Your living in the stone age because we can't make our own decisions on what we want to buy.

I agree with the author. Should we ban the Jason Voorhees movies? What's the difference?
 
2007-10-08 02:56:15 PM  
I would agree that it's somewhat ridiculous that they would censor this game, yet even as young as 2 years old we give children toy guns so they can pretend to kill other people and eventually grow up to be good little citizens who want to enlist in the army.

Apart from the retarded evil clown gimmick, stupid concept mythology, and awful music nothing really.

Plus they also wrestle on the side.
 
2007-10-08 02:56:41 PM  


No, it's not that people are offended.

It's that people are using their offense to prevent other people who aren't offended from buying said game.

IE, you have one group of people trying to dictate decency to the population as a whole.

No boobies? There are zillions of boobies on the internet. Who the hell turns to tv for boobie viewing?

Bring it the eff on, baby. We're talking knife attacks for the Wii.

I liked Manhunt a lot. A very well made game that acknowledged that there are grown up players out there who enjoy violent content.

This is the real story, a farking Rockstar game on a Nintendo console, I hope this game rakes in the $$$ so we can have some chance in hell of one day seeing GTA on the wii. I may pick this up on principle alone.

Well, obviously not. Free speech and all that. Great. But I think the author is overreacting a bit. When a game such as this is made, it's bound to cause trouble with SOMEONE. Acting offended that people would want to ban it seems naive in the extreme.

What's wrong with ICP?

Oh, nothing. Nothing at all. They're probably the most groundbreaking band of the last 50 years. Ever listened to their albums? Pure musical genius.
 
2007-10-08 03:00:21 PM  
You know who else probably would've played a game based on murder?

So, why don't they just remove that part altogether? Oh yeah, cuz then the game would suck...
