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.
