Most gamers remember how everyone went nuts about Mass Effect having a sex scene between a blue female alien and the main character. Well now it looks like Obsidian is looking to include full frontal nudity in Alpha Protocol as well.
“No, it’s tasteful,” Davis said when asked whether the game’s sex scenes contain full-frontal nudity.
“We do some things with our cinematics, too. It isn’t just like a hand up on a thing! We cut around it a little bit. It’s an American game! What can I say? There are limits to what we can do there. I’ve seen a few of the cinematics for those and it ends up being satisfying without being… you know… over… you know?”
It’s good to hear that the nuditiy will be tasteful, but to be honest I wouldn’t care if it was gratuitous either. What is the big deal of having nudity in a video game that is clearly labeled mature? More importantly is the fact that the different sexual relationships you have will help shape the game, this actually helps make the sexual romps part of the game.
“No, no, no! No God of War sex scenes! We don’t have that.”
Players in Alpha Protocol will be able to have a number of romances with key NPCs, including female soldier Sie and handler Mina, which will impact the game’s various endings.
It is a bit of a shame to hear that no one is embracing the sexual mini-game like God of War did, but I wonder if you bang everyone in the game if you die at the end of an STD?
::UPDATE:: We recently got a message from Matthew Rorie, Marketing/PR Producer for Obsidian Entertainment that said:
“There is no full-frontal nudity in Alpha Protocol. There is sex, but, as Nathan himself said, there are limits to what we can show in a game.” ::UPDATE::
