Sony Online Entertainment, developer of online PC first-person shooter, PlanetSide 2, has coded out the ability to "tea-bag" other players.
I was hoping that this was satire....
Hahaha, sadly no...
Hehe you can't make this stuff up. So many Halo players have been sexually assaulted then.
But I suppose it is sexual assault, at least in the same way as when you "shoot another player" and "kill them". I am aware that those things are still allowed, but still... I wouldn't say he is using the wrong terminology. Teabagging doesn't add much to the experience, and a F2P game is open to a wide audience so imo it's probably good on them to try to provide a decent environment for people to play in. Probably futile though. They can censor the content of their game, but they may as well give up trying to censor the people that play it.
Hey, face rape is no laughing matter.
^^Unless Scarlett Johansson is the perpetrator and you the victim
How will I disrespect campers and noobs?!?
Whattt..no Teabags..that not good
This all started thanks to Patricia Hernandez, Kotaku's rapist expert. When CoD ghost showed the female character, she said was, tea-baggin is rape now... just cus the avatar is a female...
Kotaku's rapist expert, lmao I just had to google that and my first hit was this link: http://kotaku.com/gta-onlin... I don't think I've laughed so much in all my life, especially the section where someone details what happened to them in game: "Quite literally, I and a couple friends of mine encountered a stranger and we were raped and forced to strip dance in GTA online." I don't think this guy gets the meaning of literally but whatever, I lol'd hahaha
Lizard Squad will probably DDOS them for this lol
When is this game coming out on the PS4 in NorthAmerica..?
Talk about a waste of time! This is taking things too PC.
Yup this is ridiculous.
oh..... come on.
Destiny doesn't want you to talk to people because you might hear bad words PS2 doesn't want you to be able to stand up from crouching near a dead body because it might be seen as sexual assault wtf is happening. I don't need developers to babysit me.
It's like ratings have no bearing anymore, they don't want bullying on games rated T and M because little kids convince their moronic parents to let them play it, then cry about verbal abuse and how it's "cyber bullying". I think anyone over 14 has the mental capacity to realize there's a mute button, and that T-bagging really isn't that bad, it's not like they're literally rubbing their balls on you. You're right, we don't need babysitting, and anyone who does shouldn't be playing.
I think more often than not it's the grown ups that get fed up of the kids, rather than the kids getting upset.
So tired of M-Rated games being made child proof.
Agreed. The ESRB exists for that very reason. Irresponsible parenting, haha.
With the way things are going, in a few years there won't be a need to add "Online interactions not rated by the ESRB" as there won't be any online interactions to speak of, even in multiplayer-only games.
hilariously though, destiny's fallen captains will sometimes come by and teabag you after they kill you. so, yeah. code.
Oh, come on... I never do it, but why remove the feature? This game isn't exactly Citizen Kane. It's just fun.
if you never did it , why do you care,
I don't drink, but I think everyone should have the right to. Does that answer your question?
DLC milking, season passes, paid online multiplayer is worse than this so called sexual assault.
Yes but which of those gets in the way of profits? My friends half brother who is 7 stopped playing black ops (or as he pronounces it "black cops") because some guy called him a loser. Yes, loser, that was all it took, which is silly in itself but kids get upset by that and don't realize there's a mute button, so the only way for them to retain this huge customer base of children is to take steps against it. It's idiotic. (I don't agree with the steps taken by devs to end online abuse, I think a mute button works just fine, and anyone who is offended by T-bagging should grow up, be it literally or figuratively.)
But basically Black Ops is a game that should be played by 18+ people (hence it was rated that) , so when you're telling me a kid gets upset by the word loser , it isn't the game's fault but the people who let their child play the game in the first place.
I agree, it's stupid. Parents these days are ridiculously weak willed, buying their kids anything. Not the games fault at all.
just wait till some liberal judge allows court cases about this to be heard in the courts. I can see the headline now: Boy 12 guilty of Raping my mom in video game. and then he shot me, killed me and tea bagged me. Im afraid for my life and I have nightmares..I can no longer have relations because of this incident. and do you have any evidence Mrs "B" of the alleged incident? Yes: Please see this video on my twitch feed end rant LOL
Made me laugh lol
So are they going to remove the gunfire under the grounds of attempted murder and such? smh
You will now have to fax a copy of your license before you can drive a vehicle. Specials vehicles will require proper license.
how about shooting your opponent in the face right after you killed them? or throw a grenade just to see him blow? are those sexual assaults too? C'mon guys it's a game, no need to mix up sexual assault in all of this.
Well isn't shooting and killing someone murder? Might as well code that out too.
That's what I'm thinking. If digital tea-bagging is sexual assault, shooting other players in an online shooter is murder. The logic is odd, to say the least.
good for SOE, set the bar high, keep the kids out.
If they're mechanic ruins the game because you can't Crouch after a kill then I won't be playing it on ps4.
Is this why they haven't announced a release date for PS4? Because they are busy programming this in.
I bet those poor people will be traumatized for life after someone crouched over their character's dead body. Meanwhile they continue to play a game that simulates extreme violence in war with thousands dying all around, but someone crouching over a dead body is truly a major issue.
lol, so campers are now sexual annoyers ? :P
lol, so guns, explosions and killing is okay but god forbid you squat over someone's face. Good job SOE! I feel better knowing my children can enjoy violence but frown at sexual assault!
I don't think you're supposed to have your kids play M rated games, so guns explosions and killing are technically not ok for kids.
So Planetside 2 is M for mature rated? And yet I can't tea bag someone? Hmmmm, I guess that makes sense, it's not very mature to put one's nuts in another's face after you gun them down. Good job SOE!
If such change doesn't impact the game play or fun factor, then it doesn't bother me. If it however in some way negatively affects the game play experience, then it's bs.
Shadowrun on 360 had an achievement to teabag someone lol.
Crybaby culture strikes again.
The world we live in is fucked.
I wouldn't go as far as to call it 'sexual assault' but I would call it 'moronic'.
