You know what really grinds my gears... this crap (sorry for the heated intro, but you'll understand after the colon):
Carol Lieberman, a psychologist and book author, told FoxNews.com that sexual situations and acts in video games -- highlighted so well in Bulletstorm -- have led to real-world sexual violence.

“The increase in rapes can be attributed in large part to the playing out of [sexual] scenes in video games,” she said.
FoxNews.com has jumped onto Bulletstorm, slamming the game's "excess of profanity" and the fact that you can shoot "enemies in the private parts (such as the buttocks)". They call in a number of 'experts' to assess the potential damage to children "as young as 9 playing such games", and more specifically, Bulletstorm, and comedy really does ensue.

"Games without sufficient quality of gameplay - games that include highly objectionable violent or sexual content - often pump up the level of this kind of content to gain media attention," claims Billy Pidgeon, a videogame analyst with M2 Research. "This tactic typically fails, as can be seen in the poor sales performance of titles such as BMX XXX and Postal."

It's a rough read overall, especially given the headline "Is Bulletstorm the Worst Video Game in the World?", but if you want to check it out, hit the Fox News link in the body and prepare to rage-read.

If anything this type of attention is just going to give free publicity and drive more Bulletstorm sales with lil 10 year olds looking ever more forward to shooting enemies in the private parts.

Demo was decent and fun but it wasn't anything to get hyped about. So it's not the worst game of all time but it certainly ain't the best (IMO),

Everyone knows driving cars make you a rapist.

True fact: Nearly every rapist has driven a car.

Wouldn't it be tricky if this was all made up to increase the profile of bulletstorm?

Considering the game hasn't been released yet and there are plenty of other games that have been out a while that you could actually make conclusions from.

Haha, didn't realise you could shoot someone up the arse in this game.

I'm wondering how the hell this animation is expected to pass MA15+ censors?

Sure would like to know how a game that isn't released yet, is already doing harm to children all over the world. Streisand effect much?

i agree its over the top and around the sides and through the middle on the use of swearing in the voice acting to make the game catch attention, but the level design is top notch and the weapons fit the skill thing well

parents just need to stop outraging and start overlording the parent filter on the console

DM
Posted 07:32pm 09/2/11
I'm not a huge fan of swearing in games TBH. It started getting worse with that GTA san andreas where every 2nd word was f***, n***** or a combination of the 2. I'd like some games to have an optional filter in the audio section where you could disable the stuff.

"Kill with skill" Haha what a f*****g joke. OH MAN SO COOL YOU CAN SHOOT PEOPLE IN HE ASS AND FIRE COMES OUT OF THEM?!! Looks like it is designed for kids..

That's irrelevant though, the original article doesn't even source an "increase in rapes" so rapes could have dropped for all we know, I mean i'm sure we've all cut down with this economy and all.

demo in ps3 is a bet meh, as is all fps games on consoles. gay to look around with and aim, and the auto lock on thing is f***** lame.

game is pretty s***, get to kick and grapple guys around... wow!....

get bonus' for combo kills/ shooting them in the balls etc :/ seems like its goin to be a quick-to-finish keep tryin to get a better combo score sort of game.

no f***** way in the world its the worst(most violent/obscene or whatever they rekon) game ever made, leasuire suit larry in the 90's is where its at ;)

its probably just more likely that those who make the poor decision to go with ps3 (myself included :< ) are also likely to make poor decisions on the road?

People have been raped throughout history and it is always whatever the latest thing that annoys older people that is the cause of it. Games, rock music, comic books, women getting the vote, no longer allowing people to have slaves, science, you know, stuff that makes baby Jesus cry.

On the one hand cliffyb on, the other hand Foxnews.

If I pirate the game I can piss off both of them. I WIN!
