No half-life nor Mass Effect. I put a embargo on buying new games while I tried to finish what I had. I still haven't finished Assassin's Creed, Bioshock and Fable. Mass Effect is on my radar though.

I was intending to finish Assassin's Creed this week because I thought Fallout released on Friday rather than two days ago. oops. :)

I've tried Fable, and I'm just not into it. Fable 2 came out and we got it for Ethan a week ago, and I am really perplexed. It's rated M, but not for anything that's really prevalent in the game (little random references and such) and definitely not for anything that actually enhances game-play. It's so weird - it's a very childish game (lots of hand-holding, no challenge, cartoony), so I really don't get why they decided to go that route.

We can lend you either game at any point if you'd like to try before you buy.

Pretty sure the M rating is for things like group sex, multiple wives, STDs, etc.

they have an achievement for an orgy! woo!

however, on the the meat of this comment: you and Dr Shoegazer should add me on live. ijs3321. word.

Right - and they also list gore and alcohol. But so far, I've rarely run into anything like that - how do you even have sex? Aside from that, though, the game is NOTHING like, say, GTA. The little extra bits of raunch are rare and don't add anything to the game, while putting it out of the reach (and sales) of many younger gamers, while game-play is simplistic enough to bore more advanced gamers. I feel like my hand is held for every step I make, combat is easy, there are no dialog options, etc., etc.

Anyway, off to buy Fallout 3! :P

Yay, FO just arrived for me! WHOOMP.

gore is a little misleading, yeah. there isn't anything too bad from what I've seen. now, i've been good so maybe it is different if you're evil... but it sure wasn't in the original. the booze is everywhere, though, including a bartending mini-game. they could list gambling as well.

as for doing the nasty, after a bit you can buy/earn an expression called "come back to my place", find a handy bed, and get to it. it prompts whether you want protected (no babies, no stds) or unprotected. need to buy condoms first if you're planning on getting around!

I was wondering what the condoms were for! My dog digs them up from time to time. How graphic is the sex?

Ah, I remember my first video game sex scene, in Gogol-13.

Screen goes black (boo)
There is moaning. Oftentimes there will be totally weird throes-of-passion comments (OH MAMA) or really strange comments (YOUR ARMS ARE SO STRONG).

The post-coital comments are the best though. My lesbian wife once told me, directly after, that she was reminded of her horseriding days. yes.

Wow. I may have to pursue this for the amusement factor alone!
