So, it's ok to have a "relationship" with a blue tentacle-headed Twi'lek, as long as it's of the opposite gender??

Gender is an arbitrary designation anyways, because it's fictional characters. Nothing prevents a male player from making a female character here.

I have to wonder how many of those people who bash the gays, spend hours online surfing for lesbian porn?

Christian leader knows that he can get his name in the papers by calling whatever is popular at the moment part of the homosexual agenda

More accurate headline.

Hey the sky wizard says to kill the men that lay with a man as your would a woman, its says nothing about a woman laying with woman. Also Polygomy was ok in the old testament,

So lesbians and 3+ ways are OK, but 2 dudes is just wrong according to the sky wizard.

BronyMedic: Rik01: Are some games rated XXX due to sexual content? What characteristics separate male and female players -- aside from body structure?

Online games, like Star Wars: The Old Republic, RIFT, Aion, and Warcraft are not rated by the ESRB because of the freeform nature of their Roleplaying and storyline communities, and their forums.

liverleef: These people are farking pussies. The bible doesn't just say homosexuality is a sin. It says that homosexuals are to be put to death. Either do what your infallible holy book says or STFU.

It also says people who eat shellfish should be stoned, and women who enter the church on their menses are to be sacrificed for reparation.


Why is the gay part so much more important to these people than the parts that say don't eat shellfish or the parts that say you can stone to death disobedient children? This is why I've never understood opposing homosexuality on biblical grounds.

Now if you're against it because you think its gross, unnatural, spreads disease or just contrary to how humans are meant to behave well thats different. I'm not saying I agree but I'm saying I could have a reasonable discussion with you about it that didn't result in me making fun of you. I would at least admire your honesty, at least you aren't hiding behind an ancient book of fables.

ox45tallboy: Wait, so it's okay that you can play as a Sith, oppressing the people and going on murderous rampages, slaughtering innocents, burning houses and villages, eating dead, burnt bodies, but if the game implies you might be sticking your Ewok in the wrong side of a Wookie, it must be OF THE DEBBIL!!!

Jesus Christ, people, is this really what the Jeebus would have said about this game? It's all right to pretend to be an evil, homicidal maniac, but you're going to hell if you pretend to be an otherwise good person who happens to be gay?


Remember when the Hot Coffee Mod made people go nuts? Despite the fact that you were a gangbanging thug robbing, stealing, and dealing drugs, a modification to the game (which already let you beat people to death with a double sided dildo in a police station) was just too much.

bravian: hawcian: It was always a strange reaction to me. They're canon; they were in Warcraft III. In fact they started as an April Fools joke and then people asked for them to be put in the Warcraft III. And Blizzard has been hinting at them since WoW began. Then suddenly everyone was surprised when they put them in WoW. Seriously?

Its one thing to add them as something minor and as a joke - but to make them a major theme in an upgrade that you have to pay for?

/give me dragons everytime

BronyMedic: KanedaJD: You mean they didn't want to play with pandas?

I'd love to see how their subscription numbers changed when they announced that

That was the "Jumping the Shark" moment for me. I had played since Moon Guard had existed as a server, and when they made what was supposed to be a developer joke "canon" with Mists of Pandara, it was like a wakeup call for me. Expecially since I played for Storyline and RP, not ZOMGPURPLES.

Scruffinator: Actually only one person I know actually quit wow over the pandas*. And last I heard WoW sub numbers are still in the 9 million range, which...well, is a farking lot.

Cataclysm cost them around 3 million subscriptions globally. They had about 200,000 people quit in the week or two after MoP was announced. YMMV.


Unless you have information the rest of us don't, Blizzard hasn't released updated subscriber numbers since before MoP was announced. We should be getting the latest batch in about two weeks though, since they are typically revealed at the Quarterly Activison Blizzard conference calls (next one is on February 9th). They did report a Q3 subscription loss of 800,000, which doesn't cover the MoP announcement.

At any rate, I don't think very many players quit entirely because of MoP. Most of the people who claim they did in my experience didn't like Cataclysm all that much either. Combine that with Blizzard botching the MoP announcement, and you get a lot of people quitting "because of" MoP, when they probably would of quit soon regardless of what was announced at BlizzCon. Mind you I say all of this as someone without an active WoW subscription.

As for the article, I would have to agree with previous posters and say it's a little ironic that he is focusing on the idea of a homosexual relationship when the game is jam packed with violence and death.

"The latest game pushed by the international homosexual agenda is a board game called 'Chess'. In this game, the unwitting players are required to spend their time wrapping their fingers around phallic game pieces. All but two of the board pieces are effectively male. The goal is to corner the opponent's patriarchal male piece, as opposed to oppressing the female piece as commanded in 2 Timothy."


Don't forget that simple, unwitting pawns can be turned from simple god-fearing men into raving QUEENS if only they advance enough. WHAT IS THE AGENDA HERE?!

Anyone who is older than about 14 and playing video games need to seriously question their life.

After, of course, they wipe off the Cheetos debris and manage to leave their parent's basement.

I think its cool that whenever any unrefined hateful retard in a white collar spews out something stupid into a microphone, the press will call the guy a "Christian Leader" because they know it will instantly set off the unrefined miserable retards who pre-hate anybody in a white collar. And by cool I mean cool like setting off explosives as a prank, not cool like free beer and good weather.

The only regular exceptions to this rule of thumb are Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton. Despite Jesse and Al's white collars the press labels them as "African American Leaders" or "Leaders of the Black Community" whenever they spew something stupid into a microphone. I reckon the press gets a more satisfactory angry backlash from a third kind of unrefined hateful retard when the reporters label Jesse and Al as "Black Leaders" instead of "Church Leaders"

Parents have been complaining about the content of video games since video games were invented. This is not news.

On another note, if your child "decides" to become gay because of a video game, chances are he/she was that way already.

I can't even imagine being married to one. Can you imagine 300 yammering women, as you're trying to watch the game?

This has probably already been mentioned, but the funny thing here is that he's mad about something that doesn't even exist in the game (or at least not yet). Also funny, no apparent issue with inter-species relationships that will probably occur within this game.

I would LOVE somebody to make a WOW-type game with more of a Skyrim feel. More realistic graphics and a much grittier world. Do away with cartoon exclamation points over quest givers heads and crap like that. Need to find a quest? Ask somebody in a bar. But all these games have to hold people's hand so much. And since most people only play for ten or twenty hours, most developers don't focus much beyond that point. The end game of the last few MMOs I have played has been basically non-existent. Just because most players don't reach level 50 in the first few months doesn't mean you can leave things unfinished at launch.

True story. My husband came upstairs a couple nights ago obviously frustrated. I asked him what happened. He'd been playing Battlefield, and this one player kept hassling him as if it was personal. He was getting killed and then killed again and then killed some more. This other player just wasn't letting up. So he logged out and decided to come upstairs.

What he didn't realize is that I've started playing Battlefield...

As a female Imperial Agent my romance option is with a man who has become connected to a sentient ant-like creature's hive mind. So basically, anything done with him is done with the full awareness of millions (billions?) of bugs on a variety of planets.

That's WAY more disturbing than the possibility of romancing my goth-chick sidekick.
