Are Black Ops 2 players pushing the limits with obscene Playercards

Darryl Linington from ITF Gaming writes:While the gaming world is sitting in front of their screens playing Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, either competitively or just for the hell of it… some gamers are getting creative with their Playercards… maybe a little too creative. While creating an awesome Playercard is generally the norm amongst players, some players are going a little too extreme. (Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, Culture, PC, PS3, Wii U, Xbox 360)

Lol what were they expecting with custom emblems?
SilentNegotiator  +   643d ago
They should have expected genitals and breasts. Lots of them.

And before people start their anti-censorship rants and whining about how violence is worse than sex, remember this....

Black Ops 2 is rated M for Mature, but sex/nudity isn't one of the descriptors. They may not be obligated to keep users from creating these things (as multiplayer to the extent of unpredictable human interaction isn't rated by the ESRB), but they're fully in their right to TRY to keep the multiplayer experience within the parameters of those descriptors.

Today i saw one with a penis chopped in half. There was little blood splatter too.

And no this isn't a joke, while it was funny because of how random it was to just see it pop up.

i wondered if the person hated men or was just expressing the limits of their maturity.

They don't really bother me. its not really offensive but I report the emblem just to p*ss them off when Treyarch delete it :D

If you play online games (>.>) the ESRB doesn't rate the online section of games for this reason.

the emblems are not nearly as offensive as the crap people say. what is worse seeing a cartoon cock or having an 8 year old talk about raping you
pixelsword  +   643d ago
If an 8-year-old talks about raping me I admit that's offensive, but funny; just as funny as observing that an 8-year-old doesn't have the mental capacity to realize what he actually just announced about his sexual orientation.

In other words, he might (barely) have the mental capacity to string together those words to say that to me, but I'll spin that so that he'll be crying by the end of the race.

'Cuz he's a kid.
:D

.....and? They monitor that, too, even if not all that effectively.
BaconBits  +   642d ago
How do they monitor chat?? Since the days of Halo2 (and earlier of course) ppl have been saying some pretty bad stuff. That is the reason I mute everyone when I play online with my son.

I dont think its just kids tho i hear plenty of what sound like grown men on the chat that have a penis or naked woman as a card emblem.

Reminds me of the Brando speech in Apocalypse Now.
"They send young men out to drop Napalm on innocent children but they won't let them paint the word Fuck on their airplanes because it's offensive".
This is a game where one of the objectives is to shoot other players avatars in the head as often as possible, putting a doodle on your playercard and trash talking your opponents isn't obscene in this context, if it was a G rated game the whiners might have a point.
Firebird360  +   643d ago

Agreed, you don't like "fuck" and you're scared of female breasts but no don't worry about the guy's heads who are being sliced off or the AC-130 devastating an entire camp. Wait, what ever happened to the slicing their throats while they sleep? Oh? No? Thought so...
TheFinalEpisode  +   643d ago
In the bright side: I've noticed this time around there aren't as many penises ejaculating.

Just a lot of dolphins with thunder-cocks...I can't believe that's actually a thing

Who cares, I am so sick of whiny little Opinionated people ruining games. Here is a clue its rated 17+, if any parent complains they need to be slapped for letting their little hellions play the game.
aviator189  +   643d ago
I really don't have a complaint against these things as I generally just tend to ignore them and play as I do, but how exactly do opinions, especially about a complaint regarding just a simple thing such as custom emblems, ruin games??

Well generally it leads to such behavior being punished.

I don't do these sorts of things, but I find them funny as hell.

People worry about stupid stuff like complaining about penises and meanwhile everything real crumbles around them because they aren't complaining about that. It's sad.
OptimisticPrime  +   643d ago
These nerds sure do like spending a long time perfecting, tweaking, looking at, creating and playing with penises.
aiBreeze  +   643d ago
It's a shame it isn't worth a 6/12h ban or something. Imagine that, explaining to your friends how you got banned for having a fixation on cock.
HarryKawkReturns  +   637d ago
I actually find it hilarious. Not when people just make a dick their emblem necessarily, but if they have a creative, well thought out emblem with a dick thrown in, I can't help but laugh. Unless they beat me, I don't report them >____>

Ohh lord. THIS GAME IS RATED M FOR MATURE , if your kid is playing that its your fault , anyone that is over 17 could watch stuff like that , why do they whine about things like that when it clearly says 17+
Metamorph93  +   643d ago
I posted the same thing at the same time you did. XD

I always ask this question though. I really don't understand why 6 year olds and stuff are playing these games. Then parents wonder why their kids have bad mouths etc. I mean, what do you expect? Most parents don't even watch their kids these days.
Metamorph93  +   643d ago
It is a rated MA game. Children aren't supposed to be playing it.
bubblebeam  +   643d ago
Exactly. Mothers buy this game for their little kids every day (just go into any game store and you will see it happen all the time), and then complain about sexually explicit images? What about the violence?

Either way, it just goes to show that once again violence is okay, sex isn't. It also shows that the parents have the IQ of used toilet paper as their kids are underaged in any case.

You buy a kid something they shouldn't have and then expect a babysitting service? GTFO and Grow the hell up.
AO1JMM  +   643d ago
Bravo! You are so correct but drawing big dicks and pussies isn't exactly a sign of "maturity" is it?

"While the gaming world is sitting in front of their screens playing Call of Duty: Black Ops 2..."

I got tired of it already. I'm sitting in front of my screen alternating between playing Doom Classic Complete and getting ready for GTA5 by playing GTA4 Complete Edition.

I'm pretty happy with my BO2 emblem though. It took me awhile but I made a yin yang symbol, a silhouette of an acoustic guitar, and the I Ching hexagram that apparently stands for "the army" and has to do with teamwork... at least according to the two I Ching books I have. Black and white with a grey background.

As for the "offensive" emblems, on the one hand I guess a mature rated game doesn't guarantee mature gamers, but on the other hand it is rated M so I don't see the problem, at least not with those emblems. They aren't promoting hate crimes or anything like that.
solid_warlord  +   643d ago
Call of duty is as much for kids as Porn, both require u to be minimum age of 18 to get hold of them but the only difference is that CoD is not as popular as Porn. I was watching news afew weeks ago ..they report 80% of 12 year old have seen pornography.

I generally only report racist or other wise extreme icons, boobs and knobs don't really offend me, when the game consists of popping heads you do have to wounder what the fuss is about. Some ppl make awesome emblems, I enjoy making pictures that are nonoffensive just like slot of people. IMO these crude icons are still in the minority, and the really horrible ones are ultra rare and can be reported, like I saw a jimmy savelle rape scene last week, seriously a few strange people spend to much time tying to get banded. On another strange note Blops2 does seem to have attracted the dolphin fetishises this time around... Kind of complexing of you ask me.

Game is rated for mature audiences, Mature audiences see dicks, tits and asses all the time.

Nothing here is new, uproar over nothing because people like something to moan about.

just ignore it and move on.

While I don't give a care either way, I really don't understand why people put said images in their gamecard's anyways. Maybe it's just me but I really don't care to look at someone else's junk or make a picture of but hey I got nothing against homosexuals.

I dont think its offensive. I think its funny. I guess people are easily offended nowadays.

I have the "double kill" calling card that shows the bullet going through 2 skeleton heads.
I made my emblem look like a soldier pulling the trigger that fired said bullet. It's awesome.

But I agree. Some people go way too far.
