Special thanks to my roommate for pointing this article out to me. I don’t really know where to start. Here’s a quick summary: Kevin McCullough, writing for Townhall.com, heard about a game called Mass Effect, which has some sexual content, and took that tiny bit of information he absorbed on accident and wrote a column in which he bemoans the fact that “With it’s “over the net” capabilities virtual orgasmic rape is just the push of a button away. ”
My roommate has pushed every button on his controller, and as of yet no virtual orgasmic rape. Given that the game cannot be played online, this is not a surprise. In fact, my roommate has been playing this game for 24 hours- an entire day. One full day, with plenty of button clicks, and there has not even been a full kissing scene.
Granted, it’s a big game and there is some sexual content somewhere. But it is hardly the focus of the game, and some of the ‘details’ he describes are absolutely ridiculous. Obviously, he hasn’t managed to do some basic research to actually play the game for any length of time. A+ reporting, buddy.
