ESRB give hilarious reasons for Mass Effect 2's Mature rating

Gaming, Tech Digest news, Weirdness

Anyone who finished the excellent Mass Effect will remember at least two things about it. Firstly, that the sci-fi space opera was very, very cool and that hero Commander Sheppard liked to get down and dirty with his alien crew.

Well, according to the recently released rating from the ESRB, Mass Effect 2 looks set to be just as intergalactically steamy.

The ESRB have noted that: “Players can also choose to have ‘romantic encounters’ with the alien/human henchmen characters; this involves watching a guided cutscene in which two characters flirt, kiss, and/or embrace: clothed alien/human characters may prop a partner on top of a space console, clear away the clutter from a bed-slab, unzip a future-blouse, or just talk it out,” the description reads.

Those looking for some space-age polygonal gaming porn look set to be disappointed though: “Though an alien/human may gyrate her hips while on top (fleeting–one-to-two seconds), actual sex is never depicted–the camera cuts away to space furniture and ceilings.”

That said, if there are three things that really get me going, it’s a comfy “bed-slab”, a nice bit of IKEA “space furniture” and unzipping those nifty “future blouses”.
