US Gamer Controversy: Castlevania Lords of Shadow 2′s Perceived Disturbing Scene

SpawnFirst reports: "Recently, Kat Bailey from, posted some of her initial impressions about a certain scene in the preview build of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2, that she found quite disturbing. The scene involved a vampire feeding on a woman, along with the implied attack on her child and husband. Kat felt that the attack on the woman felt like an allusion to rape, and the scene was done in bad taste. Her article was a huge center of discussion at NeoGAF as well. SlasherJPC goes in-depth into this story, and gives his take on the whole controversy surrounding Kat’s article and the scene in question."

I read the article and I felt like it was intended to make Konami look bad. I just didn't like the way the article was written, especially the way she was insinuating about the suggestive rape theme.

I'm glad this scene was included. I hate when people get so hurt over something that (a) - doesn't apply to them, and (b) - Is completely made up because it's a GAME! (Movie, book, whatever the case may be.)

Indeed! How are games supposed to evolve into an artform if we keep censoring them?
There are still so many people who think games should solely give out the feeling of entertaining. Just like books and movies, games should have the same right to make you feel sad, angered and terrified (Not only talking about scary games here)
