Underwear Optional: Nudity in Dead Island

September 26, 2011 -

When the zombie apocalypse comes, undergarments are optional. A player who obviously has too much time on his hands noticed that one of the characters in Dead Island - Xian - forgot to put her panties on. He created a ridiculously long video that rambles on for a well over a minute before showing (after the 1:55 mark) the character’s freshly shorn ..squirrel.

Obviously this was yet another secret put in the game by one of its developers, and depending on your perspective, it could be considered offensive. One thing is for sure - it wasn't detailed by the ESRB because the game contains no descriptors for nudity. Still, it’s a minor moment in a game filled to the brim with violence and that is rated Mature..

You can check out the video here. It's NSFW and obviously not meant for children.

Thanks to RedMage for pointing out the link in the ShoutBox.

Re: Underwear Optional: Nudity in Dead Island

tbh when i saw her downed, or any other character, it looked like warped and missing parts of the model were there.

this stuff looks edited, and tbh the model's in game probably can't even support a proper crotch.

the area between the legs are terribly low in trangles and the skin is just badly stretched and ugly.

once more the media, and some pervs, are really blowing stuff outta proportion.

and i'm not the only one who sees differantly.

"It's not NSFW and obviously not meant for children."

Re: Underwear Optional: Nudity in Dead Island

So the question is; will this force a recall of the game so that retailers can stick on a AO rating? Or is that only for Rockstar games?

Re: Underwear Optional: Nudity in Dead Island

Probably not. Brief partial nudity is acceptable in R movies, so logically a M game should be okay. Rockstar's recall was more of an explict sexual content which is an automatic Adult rating.

Re: Underwear Optional: Nudity in Dead Island

You keep forgetting that we still have the "video games are toys and therefore for children" mentality of some people.

Re: Underwear Optional: Nudity in Dead Island

Yeah, I doubt like hell people are going to get aroused over zombie poon.

Re: Underwear Optional: Nudity in Dead Island

That's because everyone knows zombies make terrible lovers.  They only want you for your brains.

Papa MidnightRacism and Misogny are heavily prevalent in the gaming and online arena. Getting people to actually admit that, however...07/24/2014 - 11:42am
Papa MidnightThat very thing is somthing that anyone who has been subjected to racial-based targeting online could actually state that they've experienced.07/24/2014 - 11:41am
Papa MidnightPerfect example: "I have yet to talk to a man who has had to call a police officer due to a stalker, only to be told nothing can be done until they are physically assaulted."07/24/2014 - 11:40am
Papa MidnightNot that said communities are mutually exclusive. Even the very first comment on that last article equates women in the gaming industry with being the n-word. Despicable, aetestable, and (sadly enough) this is not an uncommon presence in either community.07/24/2014 - 11:35am
Papa MidnightI only wish someone would lead a similar investigation of the sheer level of irrational racially motivated hate and insults that are perpetuated in the online and gaming community.07/24/2014 - 11:33am

SleakerAhh.. I have a feeling it's because they wanted to put up their own games on their own store.07/24/2014 - 10:56am
MaskedPixelanteRemember in 2012 when they decided to include new releases? That's when the whole service fell apart for me.07/24/2014 - 10:47am
Sleaker@MP - sold out? I thought they were always like this.07/24/2014 - 10:46am
E. Zachary KnightHowever, there are still a good number of games that have viable linux versions already and are currently in their games library that are not yet in the Linux store.07/24/2014 - 10:40am
E. Zachary KnightI for one am glad to see them finally support Linux. It has been a long time coming.07/24/2014 - 10:39am
MaskedPixelanteFrankly, I think GOG is on a quality downswing since they sold out.07/24/2014 - 10:22am
SleakerMy respect for them can't get any lower at this point, but at least they cut the bullshit I called them on back when they said it wasn't plausible to release on linux.07/24/2014 - 8:59am
SleakerGoG.com is retconning their previous 'We can't do linux support statements': http://www.gog.com/news/gogcom_now_supports_linux07/24/2014 - 8:58am

InfophileVery nice article, Zen. I definitely agree that many devs won't support something unless everyone has it. So many other examples from the past, even as far back as the SNES and accessories for it like the mouse or superscope.07/24/2014 - 5:40am
ZenWrote up a story about people wanting Nintendo to drop the GamePad...and why I think it needs to stop. :) http://bit.ly/1raIQvv Let me know what you think!07/23/2014 - 10:53pm
MaskedPixelanteHey, so remember that "redeem your Sims 2 key on Origin for a free copy of the all-in-one edition" promotion? Well, it didn't work, so to make up for it, just go into your Origin profile and redeem the product key "I-LOVE-THE-SIMS" for your free Sims 2.07/23/2014 - 9:12pm
