"Mass Effect" is a porno game...wtf

Recommended Posts

I know that they all probably assume they have better, much more important, urgent, timely, things to campaign on, but I sure would like to get their individual takes on the new video game that one company is marketing to fifteen year old boys.

It's called "Mass Effect" and it allows its players - universally male no doubt - to engage in the most realistic sex acts ever conceived. One can custom design the shape, form, bodies, race, hair style, breast size of the images they wish to "engage" and then watch in crystal clear, LCD, 54 inch screen, HD clarity as the video game "persons" hump in every form, format, multiple, gender-oriented possibility they can think of.

The objections to such filth should be simple to understand.

Starting with the disgusting idea that one can "create" their own versions of what people look like, removing warts, moles, and bald spots while enhancing - shall we say - the extended features of the game's characters tends to objectify women, sex, and human relationships. Right? We can all agree on this?

Then there's the dishonesty behind the game' title. "Mass Effect" sounds like a war game with a deadly virus that is spreading unless the GI-Joes are able to defeat the evil and deadly substance and it's covert war plan. By it's design, kids could ask for it, or for their parents' Best Buy Card to go purchase it with nary a raised eye-brow. Generic, non-descriptive, and relatively harmless.

But it IS marketed for the X-Box 360, perhaps the most visually stimulating gaming system ever made. The software for such allows the blending of DVD video, component graphics, and the manipulation of actual pictures so that an alternate reality engulfs the fifteen year old boy playing it without much objection.

Now if I have trouble with my son taking his James Bond 007 games a little too emotionally, imagine the powerful effect that hormones add to the mix when the player's own character is copulating like jack rabbits with super-models, actresses, and anyone else they can spend the patience to create, name, and "put into play."

I hear the libertarian Ron Paul's answer already, "Government has no business censoring freedom of expression." Figures, he's a libertarian.

In the race for President there has been a lot of discussion about faith and it's impact on the lives of the individual candidate. Some pretty inane ones like Carl Cameron's less lucid moment this past week when he posed the inquiry about marital submission to Governor Mike Huckabee.

Yet here's a question that deserves to be asked, and in all likelihood will not be: "How much moral judgement should the President push into legislative issues that are likely to severely damage our children's innocence, function, and capability?"

I hear the nay-sayers claiming I'm being the wild and crazed Bible thumper I've always been - but its a worthwhile question isn't it?

If a pre-teen, teen, young adult, or adult male plays such a game in which the women DO submit without choice, are made to appear as Barbie streetwalkers, and perform whatever act can be imagined, what's to stop that same male from assuming that the women in his "other world" shouldn't be forced to do the same.

We now know because of the lengthy track record of serial killer after another that addictive use of pornography was prevalent in case after case - long before the switch got flipped and what their masturbatory imaginations have given into became what they were forcing real live human beings to do.

And because of the digital chip age in which we live - "Mass Effect" can be customized to sodomize whatever, whoever, however, the game player wishes.

With it's "over the net" capabilities virtual orgasmic rape is just the push of a button away.

Yes there will be many snickers that I decided to bring this issue up in the Presidential cycle of 2008 but how refreshing would it be for a President to prove to the nation that his own manhood was not in question and put his pen and signature to a bill that dealt with such simulated sex excess in a way that was punitive to its creators to such a degree that they would never recover from it?

As technology continues to push the limits of imagination and interaction more and more the brain, the emotions, the feelings will integrate with physical responses in reality. And while the makers of such trash seem to be pushing our next generation of young men through the gates of hell as fast as is humanly possible, it needn't be that way.

Here's hoping that as the next President will be forced to deal with this continual emerging reality - and enemy that has set its site to our destruction from within - that we will have elected a man of such character that he will have precision in the clarity of his response.

How would that be for a bold and uncompromising "Mass Effect?"

This is in no way gonna go in news cause of the sheer flaming this guy should get...WTF kind of twit is he...dunno how many people have seen the article already but seriously....WHAT THE FUCK

That's just lame ... I'll buy whatever topnotch console for my kids just so I can enjoy the super graphics on those uber hot women players.


I am putting myself to the fullest possible use, which is all I think that any conscious entity can ever hope to do.

Haha, man thats funny. Theres what, a total of 3 sex scenes in the game (from what my roommate says two lesbo scenes and one straight). Plus, as far as customization goes, you can only modify the face of your character and not the entire look. This is entirely why I hate this country, to fucking conservative for our own fucking good. They need to take lessons from a couple of other countries when it comes to this stuff.

We should let him get a hold of Artificial Girl 3 and then he'll know what a true porn game is (complete with detailed character customization) and how what he considers to be a porn game to be nothing more then a game with added, adult content.

BOLOL!

Next he'll go after Sims 2. Not only can you customize how your Sims look, they can get together for "WooHoo!" whenever you want! They don't have to be married even, just in love! And you can make your Sims fall in love and have "WhooHoo" with other people than their partners! And, you can make and download nekkid and fetish skins! XD

I'd much rather my child play Mass Effect than Sims 2 from that standpoint. *LMAO*

._. wait wait wait wait...did this douche really use the term; "Barbie Streetwalker"...? I do believe he did.. we already have those--they're called Hookers addicted to plastic surgery..how about we address the REAL issue of Americans becoming addicted to unrealistic body ideals and going under the knife to have their fat sucked out of their asses and pumped back into their faces? How about we take a look at the fact that 15-year old boys are already objectifying women because their parents are unfit to raise them? How about we get our president to look at the terrorism going on in the USA half as seriously as the CIVIL wars going on in other countries that have been occurring for HUNDREDS OF YEARS?! Instead of flying over to bomb the fuck out of some idiot with a spear how about we try to straighten up the bullshit that's destroying the integrity of our own country?

Sorry, I have a serious issue when parents are paying more attention to what the dip shits at the ESRB have to say than making sure their offspring adhere to the fucking drug laws!! Video games don't make stable children violent--violent video games can even give children a healthy VIRTUAL way to manage aggression/stress. It's the children who are already unstable and already at risk of taking a pistol to school that shouldn't be playing the shit! And who's going to determine which children are unstable? I dunno..how about the parents say more than; "GOD DAMN IT JOHNNY WHY DID YOU GET A FUCKING 'B-' IN TRIG THEORY!? NOW YOU'LL NEVER GET INTO YALE"--newsflash you waste of existence..Johnny is in fucking fourth grade.

Our kids are smart, and for the most part--they're pretty responsible. But all the potential in the world is easily squandered if the people in charge of helping our youth develop don't step the fuck up. I'm not saying every parent is bad-- there are DAMN good parents out there, who do stay informed. But they are a minority. Children in elementary schools are being diagnosed with depression, does no one see something seriously wrong with that?

Sorry for the rant..but..that just pisses me the fuck off.

I didn't bother reading it all because you cannot enhance the breast size. Only the face can be changed. This person is obviously uninformed about the game. Probably saw it on Oprah or something and came to their own wild conclusions.

There is a total of 3 possible sex scenes if you play as renegade. You can also go through the game with no sex scenes. The first possible one is so obscure you don't even know what the hell is going on until the very last second. The others are no worse than what you see on basic cable TV.

Don't you have to actively pursue another character with diligent empathy, extensive dialogue, and demonstrated emotional concern to even have a chance at a sex scene?

Sounds like Mr. McCullough hacked the game and inserted his own foreign entity. What up.

And I don't see Mass Effects as a porno title. Mass Endowments, yes. Even Mass Reactions possibly. Mass Effects just sounds like some post-apocolyptic game or movie.

These kind of games have been around for a while. Why the hell do they care now. I remember when they made a huge stink over Doom and the fact you could go in a strip club or something? In the PC game The Witcher, you get a log book for all the women you sleep with through out the game. I think you get bonuses too, I would have to look again. It sounds like a kinky SIMS game. What are they going to do next? Say that SIMS characters have rights and we should treat them accordingly? LMAO

Bah, my Sims don't have rights! I am their GOD! *mad giggles*

*ahem*

Heck, I can remember the uproar over the Hot Coffee Mod in GTA:SA. Which I have seen and is hilarious. It's not just a sex scene, it works like a game and you have to make her happy or you lose. *LOL*

No, because what this guy is describing doesn't exist in the game. He obviously has not touched the game himself and just needed something to try and make an example of. If "Mass Effect" were a rouse for the "mass effect" it would have on people, it would only be for its innovative, streamline dialogue trees and customizable (in every way except those described in this article) characters and plot.

The only questionable theme to the game, which makes it hit close to home, is one of the paths you can take in the game that revolves around racism. However, instead of humans looking down on each other, its humans looking at themselves as better than the other alien species. Someone could make a better case out of that rather than this whole porno deal.

Update:

decided to follow this "lead." It seems that no one in the media is capable of doing research on a subject before reporting "facts" on it. I was moderately impressed with the anchor heading up the interview, who admitted she was unable to find any explicit content or images of the game through her brief research online, but she then later goes on to say ""When you buy video games...you have to pick up the box and look at the back for the rating..." which, if you've ever even seen a video game (bought it or not) you know is not true. Unless she's buying old NES games or something, ratings are always on the front of the box, letter and word spelled out in black and white for you. According to Wired, the psychologist has apologized for what she said during the debate, having realized afterward that she had no idea what she was talking about. Fox News has yet to apologize for their ignorance and slanderous statements against the game.

Shes gonna apologize now that her book ratings have been under attack on every book selling website by enraged gamers. X'D Fox News and EA are butting heads big time.

This reminds me of the whole Oprah vs. Mortal Kombat ordeal when it first came out.

At least Mortal Kombat actually was a violent (and extremely violent for the time it came out) game. What is most absurd about the continuing hate towards Mass Effect is that what these people are claiming is not even remotely true. It's not just bigots spouting off against video games as usual; it's ignorant people claiming their own made-up fears as fact without doing any of that research their entire profession is based upon.

What is even more pathetic is that these people are completely wasting their time. Probably none of them play video games, and along with the fact that children are such a small percentage of the gaming market, they really aren't going to accomplish anything. They don't even seem to have a goal, besides pissing me off with a bunch of whining.

Infact, the joke is on them. As always, stirring up controversy will only make people want to see for themselves. The game will probably sell even more now.
