BBFC rates DNF, Shadows of the Damned 18

March 15, 2011 -

According to a Eurogamer report (thanks beemoh) Duke Nukem Forever and Shadows of the Damned have both been rated 18 by the UK's BBFC. The game that no one ever expected to be finished has descriptors for "strong violence, sex, nudity, and language & drug references" - among a laundry list of naughty things. Shinji Mikami and Suda51's game Shadows of the Damned has descriptors for "very strong bloody gore and very strong language." Both games remain intact as in other regions.

Shadows of the Damned, published by Ea in the United States, is set for release on June 1 on Xbox 360 and PS3, according to GameStop. Duke Nukem Forever is published by 2K Games and is set for a release in early May for PC, Xbox 360, and PS3.

At least both games will see the light of day in the UK.

...and Duke Nuken Forever (DN3D part II :P) truly deserves an 18 rating! Sorry to disappoint those who were hoping for a 12 or Teen rated release :P

How exactly is this news? You make it sound like every game gets banned in the UK (by being rejected classification). Only two games have ever had to be cut to receive classification; Carmeggedon and Manhunt 2.

The last game that got blocked from being released in the UK was We Dare because the rating was too low. Ironic.

Re: BBFC rates DNF, Shadows of the Damned 18

Should also be noted that both those games were also granted ratings on appeal.

And that's still two more than should have been cut.

WonderkarpAny of you guys watch Game Grumps? They have an episode detailing alot of the bugs in the hilariously bad Sonic Boom https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O3Jb3A0HLe4&list=UU9CuvdOVfMPvKCiwdGKL3cQ11/26/2014 - 4:19pm

NeenekoWhich is why I completely ignore the site.11/26/2014 - 3:15pm
james_fudgeAHHH Someone bar the door and keep the kids away from the credit cards!11/26/2014 - 3:14pm
Neo_DrKefkaThe Ralph Retort is a toxic mess and the guy is literally building his career on the back of the GamerGate movement. Whether you believe GamerGate is right or wrong this is a man profiteering on this war.11/26/2014 - 2:56pm
WonderkarpTHE STEAM SALES HAVE BEGUN!11/26/2014 - 2:16pm
MaskedPixelanteUnless you have said DLC already, then you can get the equally broken FarCry 4.11/26/2014 - 2:15pm
WonderkarpI love Boogie. He's awesome.11/26/2014 - 2:02pm

Andrew EisenIt's a cute joke to make but it’s important to note that the person's view is not gendered. It's not about not supporting a female dev, it's about not supporting GamerGate. Gender is irrelevant in this case.11/26/2014 - 1:10pm
Neo_DrKefkaToo add what Andrew said about the The Ralph Retort it is no different from what you read at Gawker. I remember reading The Ralph Retort on how Boogie was the bad guy from being on the fence until he jumped to the GamerGate side.11/26/2014 - 12:42pm
Wonderkarpthat, I do not know the answer too. I see some people saying they wont vote for her because of it. I'm pointing out the irony.11/26/2014 - 12:31pm
Andrew EisenIs this call to not vote for her game widespread or is it just the one tweet from the one guy?11/26/2014 - 12:19pm
Wonderkarphttps://twitter.com/GMShivers here's her twitter if you wanna look. I didnt see any harassment. 11/26/2014 - 12:07pm
Andrew EisenI'm just curious what kind of GamerGater the dev is. Does she harass people? If so, I could understand the desire not to support her. "Very Pro-GG" doesn't tell me anything.11/26/2014 - 12:05pm
NeenekoWhile boycotts have their place, small ones like that just hurt small producers for no real gain. It is just being petty.11/26/2014 - 12:02pm
WonderkarpI'm addicted too their deals :P When I find an alternative, I'll drop Kotaku :P. you Tease cause you care though :)11/26/2014 - 11:57am
Andrew EisenWarning, light teasing incoming. Ahem. So, not only could you not go a full four hours without reading The Ralph Retort, but you read Kotaku? A site you say you're actively trying to convince others to stay away from? Wow!11/26/2014 - 11:56am
