GameAxis reports that Singapore has banned Mass Effect, apparently over a lesbian make-out scene.
LOL, look now at a "Sony Fanboy" now turned "Thought Police". It's really too bad that there is still plenty of racist people and countries still in existance. But in the grand scope, Singapore is no big loss. Hot, good looking Lesbians ROCK!!!
Completely agreed. Leaving all the great aspects of the game for a single love scene is more than stupid. Also, the scene was PG-13 (Partial nudity with no nipples is PG-13), how on earth people find it offensive is beyond me. Hollywood's PG-13 movies show much more and are more explicit, let alone R movies...
Good, what a stupid game.
obviously u dont like games then
Sexual scenes just alienates part of the market so its BioWare's own doing for this. Adding a visual sex scene, especially something which is Taboo like a Lesbian scene, is nothing but brave but I don't think the game could have possibly gained anything from this. I'm generally against sexualisation in video games. Too much sex in our society today.
nothing explicit was shown, but i do agree there is too much sex in our society.
did i just read that "to much sex in society today". dude i think thats takin it a bit to far, me i love sex so that line just completetly threw me off. but everyone to there own.
I really don't think you can call this a "SEX" scene. It's nothing but two characters making out.... "2nd base" if you will. But since there is so much ignorance and hatred towards same sex interactions, I'm sure BioWare was somewhat prepared for this reaction. Though, I'm sure the banning won't stop in Singapore.
I think there's definitely a lot of sexualization today, but I think theres more aggresion overall. And yes, I like sex, but I think kids are getting a very shallow view of sex and aggresion. But maybe im just getting old.
you've got to understand. these guys have let jewish lies control their lives. they, like their fellow mystics in singapore, believe sex is a shameful, evil act. perhaps we'd be better off wearing bed sheets over our heads like halloween every day! who's with me?? MORE CANDY!
on other news. intelligence has just been banned in singapore.
Games have certain limits and this crosses that limit. Good news for you though it gives you more excuse to use your right hand.
interesting their is a limit of what can and can not be done in a video game? and more importantly who is the all-seeing one that get's to decided the limit. I would hate to live in Singapore at the moment.
must not get too many games, huh?
Now that's done, where is the Hot Coffee mod!!!
i believe oral sex is illegal in singaopore. so lesbian alien sex is obviously a no no since it might corrupt poor innocent singaporean minds and force then to go out and seek dodgy sex with aliens.
Oral sex is illegal in Singapore? Wow, what a sick country!
yeah, seriously, oral sex is illegal - however it is only illegal to perform but not receive.. i bet that law was created by a man and not a woman.. lol anyway, let's be serious: alien sex is hardly a turn on - it's like watching two frogs mating... would you get turned on by this??
LOL alien sex? That's nothing, I once had a wet dream involving giant robots. The ZoE type ones. I'll never forget it and I just can't wait for some real robosex...2020ish?
Okay... I'm going to pretend I didn't read that. p.s. Just messing w/ you man! Although... Robot sex?
Yeah, imagine a vagina/anus/mouth, all cold smooth slick metal...and when you enter it connects right to your brain via neural connectors and all your dreams come true! Wet dreams that is, ahahaha j/k but...you never know what future brings.
LOL that's nothing. I saw a chart with the laws of sex for all countries. most of those places say u can have sex with little boys and girls, but then punish you by death for same-sex adults consenting to sex. lmao. no joke. i kid u not. and if u have sex before marriage? death. right away. LMAO. GOTTA LOVE CAVEMEN IDIOTS.
This is a truly beautiful game. I can't wait for it to come to PC! When do you think they'll break the silence on it? 6 months after the X360 release?
haha singapore u crack me up ... what a dumb reason to ban a game... whats the next one? these graphics are just to beautiful BAN THIS NOW!
@ 10.2 : "Oral sex is illegal in Singapore? Wow, what a sick country!" Well, the USA has the most laws about sex! Some are very funny and strange. I've already been in Florida and really enjoyed my vacations there. I don't wanna say "sick country".
I'm sorry, I shouldn't have said it like that. I really meant "sick government" not people.
actually i just found out that oral and anal sex is okay amongst heterosexuals but amongst same sex it is not okay so themart is obviously breaking the law but everyone else is fine... j/k just joking mart we all know you aren't gay.. you just prefers boys.. lol j/k no offence intended okay?
A bit of a crappy reason to ban a game isnt it?!
