Bulletstorm Rated by the ESRB

If you’ve been excited about Epic Games’ upcoming shooting game Bulletstorm and you’re younger than seventeen, then I’ve got some unpleasant news for you.

The ESRB has rated the upcoming would-be blockbuster with an M for mature, citing Blood and Gore, Intense Violence, Partial Nudity, Sexual Themes, Strong Language, Use of Alcohol as reasons for its verdict. Here is an excerpt from their summary:

The dialogue contains numerous jokes and comments that reference sexual acts, venereal diseases, and having sex with one’s mother (e.g., “Guess I know where the ol’ gal got that limp.”). The names of some Skillshots are infused with sexual innuendo (e.g., Gag Reflex, Rear Entry, Drilldo, Mile High Club); one Skillshot (i.e., Fire in the Hole) allows players to shoot at enemies’ exposed buttocks. Language such as “f**k,” “sh*t,” “p*ssy,” and “c*ck” can be heard in dialogue.

Oh my. I might be interested in picking this one up for the yo momma jokes alone. Bulletstorm is set to hit the PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 on February 22nd.
