Thanks to James Ogden for this article.

Slashdot have posted a small article about how the hidden sex mini-game in San Andreas has caused a few problems for ESRB and linked to a few articles of politicians complaining about the game again. Not much else going on, so I might as well link it if you'd like a read. SlashDot Article.

bah. i agree with the above post about lawyers trying to use items of this nature as a stepping stone to fame/popularity. it's really really sad when people feel that a game intended for mature players shouldn't be played by mature players.

once again, the real issue here is how stores sell games to "underaged" players. that is completely unregulated (from my understanding of it). that is where the legislation is needed, not stopping R*. do we go after tobacco companies because the quiki-mart sold smokes to a 13yr old? do we sue George Lucas because the movie theatre let a 13yr old into an "R" rated movie?

Considering you can not play the hot-coffee mini-game without altering the way the finished product was intended to be played means nothing to these people. stupid lawyers...they'll do whatever they can to bring about a bad reputation to a company producing games for a mature audience but no one will stop T-moble from trying to collect a $1000+ bill from a 4 year old Voice Stream account which was never owned in the 1st place. wallbash_red.gif

i imagine we can all thank the religious right for this one, like usual. im so glad people feel the need to "rescue" me from myself while taking away my freedoms and rights

Yeah, but that penis looks stupid and dosen't fit well to the mouth, and the "jizz" or "piss" isn't comming straight out of it :P  I dunno the face isn't perfect either, but I'd rather it be a fuckin pirate then a penis.
