What Naughtiness Awaits in Dragon Age II

February 7, 2011 -

An ESRB ratings entry for BioWare's Dragon Age II reveals some of the "mature rated" sauciness you can expect within the game when it is released on March 8. According to the entry, the game will feature sexually charged dialogue, adult language, and a suggestive scene that "alludes to" an act of oral sex – among other things.

First the description of oral sex:

"In one cutscene, a woman kneels in front of a male character and appears to perform fellatio," says the ESRB entry. "There is no depiction of the sex act; the camera pans out to the rest of the room."

It really sounds worse than it is, to be fair. Other text from the entry includes a description of a beheading, use of some swear words ("shit," "ass," and "bastard"), some dialogue that involves references to sex, and some "sex scenes" featuring partially nude "couples" (male and female, and same-sex) embracing and kissing.

It all sounds tame to me. I could see and hear worse things in a PG-13 rated movie.

Bow-chikka-wow-wow!

Er, actually, it sounds no more risque than the first game, and while I wouldn't pass out copies to 10 year olds, it was pretty tame for a Mature rated game.  Though I found the obsession with blood to be distracting (really, your trail on the map is blood splaters...)  I just hope the "sex" scenes aren't as awkward as the first game.  Uncanny Valley, indeed.

Is anyone else amused that the ESRB site, a tool for (assumingly adult) parents to determine the type of content in a game, voluntarily censors the words "ass" and "shit"?

Not really. They are a resource center for people who want information on games. Not everyone is confortable with reading swears when looking for information.

IanCI think its a way of getting round giving it free to Win 8 users...09/30/2014 - 2:39pm
MaskedPixelanteWindows alternates between bad and good versions. XP was good, Vista sucked, 7 was good, 8 sucked, therefore 10 will suck, QED.09/30/2014 - 2:18pm
E. Zachary KnightPerhaps they are calling it "10" because on a scale of 1-10 of how awesome it is, it is a clear 10.09/30/2014 - 2:06pm
E. Zachary KnightTo be fair. Microsoft has had a bit of a numbering issue lately. What with going from XBox 360 to XBox One.09/30/2014 - 2:06pm
NeenekoI remember the pac man show from the 80s, but I was more picturing this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fWL6j0SvqV0 which is probably more source accurate then Tetris will be...09/30/2014 - 1:42pm
Andrew EisenThat is so dumb. That would be like Sony saying, "Hey guys! The next Playstation is going to be so awesome, so far beyond what the PS4 can do that we're going to call it the Playstation 6!"09/30/2014 - 1:42pm

Andrew EisenIf you can't get enough of Hyrule Warriors' gameplay, yeah, it's looking like a pretty good deal.09/30/2014 - 12:03pm
E. Zachary KnightSo a Tetris movie is happening. Here is the link. Reads like a joke: http://blogs.wsj.com/speakeasy/2014/09/30/tetris-movie/09/30/2014 - 11:47am
E. Zachary KnightSo is it worth getting the Season Pass?09/30/2014 - 11:45am
Andrew EisenWow. The Hyrule Warriors DLC is more extensive than I thought. The new scenario in the first pack is a full five levels and the new Adventure Map is a whole new map, all 128 squares. Yowza!09/30/2014 - 11:08am
Andrew EisenI'm most pleased that the Quick Start Menu will now launch when the Wii U is powered on from the TV Gamepad TV Remote. I felt that was a huge oversight and I'm glad it's been corrected.09/30/2014 - 11:06am
MaskedPixelanteHey look, Nintendo figured out folders on the Wii U. I mean, yeah, they figured out folders on the 3DS several years ago, but these are BETTER! These... uhh... actually display the full folder name on the home screen instead of just the first letter...09/30/2014 - 9:19am
