Beyond: Two Souls has threats of sexual violence

Player Attack: We still don't know all that much about Beyond: Two Souls, but now - thanks to the Australian Classification Board - we do know that the game contains "threats of sexual violence and interactive drug use" to the point where it's been granted an R18+ rating down under.

I've surprised my stupid government that's so afraid of the female form let this game pass.

I wonder how close it was to getting banned.

Godlovesgamers978d ago

Isn't it obvious? It's not about the female form, it's about the context and way it's portrayed. There's a huge difference.

Hicken978d ago

... this is Australia we're talking about here. It's pretty much entirely about the female form.

Godlovesgamers978d ago


I'm well aware of that fact, Cptn. Obvs.

Why do you have to always be so rude to people when u reply? Why must u call him captain obvious? For a supposed religious person, u don't seem to be at peace. You don't just do this sometimes, but you do it a lot. I doubt your conversion was genuine. I know goths that aren't nearly as combative as you get when on n4g.

KwietStorm978d ago

You're clearly not aware of that, based on your comment. What would cause you to give a smart ass reply to what he said to YOU though?

Godlovesgamers978d ago


Well gee, doogiebear. I'm sorry I don't fit your preconceived notion of what a "supposed religious person" should be. My poke at Hicken was in jest only.

Have I been "combative" in the past? Yes and some of the time I've been wrong, I'd be the first to admit it. But there have been times when people have acted like complete and total a-holes and I've be "rude" back to them in a non explicit fashion.

I hope that you're judging your actions as closely as you are judging mine.

"You're clearly not aware of that, based on your comment."

This from the articles description at the top of the page:

" R18+ rating down under."

Yeah, Kwietstorm, clearly I had NO idea.

Tell you what, you can report to Cptn. Obvs at exactly 17:00hrs for your debriefing, Corporal Clueless. ZING!

Hicken978d ago

BECAUSE it's Australia, it's far more likely to be simply about the female form than any context. Any familiarity with the goings-on down under would have told you that.

Your comments prove you still don't get it.

Its a shame that suits get to say what the people "below" them play and don't play. What gives them the right to tell you which games are ok and which aren't. People shouldn't have that control over others.

fattyuk978d ago

Seriously what is up with Australia and there game ratings!

GarrusVakarian978d ago

This game has sexual threats to me too, but in a completely different way, lol.

Arrrriibaa978d ago (Edited 978d ago )

She looks a bit like Ellie, so i won't like your comment lol.

GarrusVakarian978d ago

Wtf? Ellie looks like a little girl. And i wasn't talking about Ellen paige. I mean im excited for the game.

Not surprising.Cage goes all out when he aims for that M rating.Remember Heavy Rain? Jeez, game opens with you as madisson, fighting off rapists/murders as they toss your around and beat you senseless while your in your knickers.

Keep me alive.
I don't want your death penalty, your honor, it was a simple mistake. Forget those interactive drugs I took and all the threats of rape. Say, does your yard need to be raked?

This yard work's a bore.
I don't wanna do this chore.
