BioWare’s Mass Effect has been banned in Singapore, according to GameAxis Online, a site operated on the island nation.
Apparently, the game’s widely-publicized love scene between two women – one of whom is a blue-hued alien – didn’t go down well with government censors. From the GameAxis Online report:
If you were expecting a raunchy Lust Caution movie-inspired sex scene, then you’re going to come away disappointed. Of course, when a video like the one shown in Kotaku makes its round do you really expect our censorship board to let the game pass through its net? Of course they don’t!
So here’s the sad news coming from official sources. Mass Effect, the wonderfully crafted RPG from Bioware is now officially BANNED! The irony though, is that the ban probably only serve to intensify the game’s demand here.
