God of War III. Here comes the poutrage to generate the sales.

Oooh boobies

Oooh boobies

God of War III is a violent slasher game designed for angry console playing sessions. It is the third instalment of a series that saw its first outing 5 years ago. Its plot is minimal, its gameplay is not far off random button mashing – certainly on the easier levels and it is reasonably fun to play if you are somewhat pissed off. It is a very macho, very male game.

It will also be highly controversial. It has an interactive sex scene it. Not unlike the other games in the series.

It looks far from realistic. It is graphically a boost up from the Playstation 2, but below that of what is now being developed for the PS3. More playstation 2.5 than PS3.

A video of it is here:

(Contains very simulated nudity)

You do not see the actual sex act, but you do see two semi naked women “watching” and you have to press buttons, when told to. Known as quick time events in gaming (very frustrating and completely pointless).

You can absolutely guarantee that some politico will demand that the game is banned. You can absolutely guarantee that this will generate publicity and that of course will only boost sales.

The game will be targeted at an 18+ audience but you know that once the poutrage starts, school boys will want the game and they will pester their parents to buy it. That of course will lead to more publicity because after all the parents are absolved, it is a game after all. Not quite seeing that they are in the wrong for buying an adult game for a child.

Parents should not be buying boys adult games. That is the point of age ratings. There are very few parents who would buy their sons violent movies, never mind porn films, yet they have no problem buying their angelic little sprog some violent game – after all it is only a game, and then they complain it.

If a parent bought their 12 year old a porn film they would probably have child protection banging on the door. If they buy them a game, the games company gets blamed.

All this poutrage does is create more sales. If politicos do not jump up and down screaming think of the children there will be no hype. If there is no hype there is no sales boost.

So how about politicos ending this cycle by not screaming about it, especially when there are more important issues to get excitable about? Then the game gets reviewed, reviewers consider it average hack and slash, those that were going to buy it, buy it, those that would have been hyped in to buying it do not. How about parents not buying an adult game for children so then there will be no complaints about children seeing this? Is any of this too much to ask?

    In God of War II, Kratos sits atop his Olympus throne, as the new God of War.

    Parents should not be buying boys adult games.

      Then they should not complain about it afterwards.

    I see that Document Dan Rather has been caught saying that Obama can’t even sell watermelons. That sounds pretty racist to me. Where is the kicking and screaming about how racist the US is? Oh, I forgot, Document Dan is a liberal.

      Dan Rather is not a PS3 game is he? I did not know about a PS3 game involving a boring newscaster on his nth comeback tell me more. Is it as boring and unenlightening as one of your inane pieces of drivel you pass off as comment?

      Anyway you rather ignorant PUMA, here is what he said in the context of how he said it. (Remember before discussions of context).

      The Republicans will make a case and a lot of independents will buy this argument. “Listen he just hasn’t been, look at the health care bill. It was his number one priority. It took him forever to get it through and he had to compromise it to death.” And a version of, “Listen he’s a nice person, he’s very articulate,” this is what’s been used against him, “but he couldn’t sell watermelons if it, you gave him the state troopers to flag down the traffic.”

      He was saying what he thought Rethugs would say – not what his view are. Rather has foot in mouth syndrome, has done for years.
