Originally posted by Mtibbs1989 Originally posted by anglynndav Originally posted by Talonsin I voted yes but I honestly think it should be the parents responsibility to monitor what their kids are playing. Too many parents are using the computer as free babysitting while they run around and do other things. My neighbor allows her 10 year old to have a computer in his room and play video games past 11pm on school nights and has no clue what her son is doing in there since he also has a lock on the door. Parenting in the US is getting ridiculous and then we blame everyone else when our kids fail or become perverts.
So sad and so true- it is not ok to let the computer babysit and locks on doors - sheesh. Say it together... Columbine. Thats exactly what happened there and in a lot of the other US mass shooting cases. Parents were AWOL.
Columbine has nothing to do with this. The Columbine shooting was something of a whole different factor. Please don't put negative spins on the gaming industry because some nut job who loved computers goes crazy. What are you the next Jack Thompson?
no no not the games- the bad parents - i apologize for any confusion.
I wonder if parent who say " you have no right to tell me how to raise my kids " would be ok with "you are responcable for how they turn out..if they go to the gas chamber you go with them "
Totoal freedom to do what you want should come with some accountability. Right now when they turn out bad and we see what some of these parents were doing we just call it tragic and move on.
Having recently watched some adult media I am a bit puzzled as to why many are referring to SB as an adult game. SB is somewhere between Porky's and Lady Gaga. Is the standard for what is adult lowered when it comes to online games? SB is a bit saturated with suggestive content but that's all. Suggestive. I just don't see the moral panic about this. Parents control what their kids have access to. If they can't be bothered to find out what they're doing...You can't legistlate behaviour. It's funny that bodies hanging from trees and mass killing doesn't lead to as much drama as displaying jiggleboobs does. The internet consuming masses need to grow up.
There is NO miracle patch.
95% of what you see in beta won't change by launch.
Hope is not a stategy.______________________________"This kind of topic is like one of those little cartoon boxes held up by a stick on a string, with a piece of meat under it. In other words, bait."
Seems like some parents prefer their kids to live in a plastic bubble and since they do...everyone else
"Kids" go into 2nd Life and state being adult then go to the adult sector and watch avatars copulating and prefroming oral sex, fully pornographic. Same rating M 17+. SB is TAME for a 'Adult Game' and was pretty much 'dumbed down' for an 'Adult' Game.
I'm about to leave it after getting the 'underware unlock' and seeing the fish scaled crotch (I did a casino sign in and got 4214CP for it). IMHO If they state it as 'adult' it should not be censored (I mean show genital depiction is nothing compared to what other 'adult' games do)
I'm a bit annoyed at the half-way Aeria did the game, if your going to 'sell sex' in a game and say 'adult' is should not be half-way
I can assure you Aeria will be getting no money from me until they change thier attitude.
AND bring in a true yellow blonde hair colour not the puke green/yellow currently.

I voted for the last one, because it was moronic, like the internet police were going to come to my house, and the parent one said to throw them in jail....
Get a grip....Parents need to be parents, plain and simple...
Gotta, go the cops are coming because I chose one of the moronic choices in this poll.

Originally posted by Bladestrom Censorship is what parents should do, sometimes its ok to say that's wrong.
Censorship is what the gov't should do too...for the same reason.
Or is it only ok when it doesn't stand in your personal way ?
but then again we live in a world where a third of the Pink Floyd trial is censored because there might've been what an acid-trip mind makes look like a vagina in it.

Hasn't stop those bastards from extraditing people from other countries for the crimes that break American law.
Think thats the CIA.
FBI is federal in state lines only.
Unless it is related to terrorism, then they go wherever they want.
You could have a credit card check, but doesn't stop kids from slipping that from their parents' wallets. Of course you can leave that up to the family, credit card check would stop some kids.
this game is a waste of time
dont get me wrong i like some flesh in games, but c'mon this game is made by geeks that have calas on there hands and to cheap to goto a brothel or however u spell it

You get calluses on your hands from laboring work, going to the gym, or something like using a pull up bar. Soft callus free hands are far more likely to be the case here.
It should be the parents job to monitor what kids are doing on the internet, its a difficult thing to do anyway. Each country would have differant laws and demands on what type of ID would be acceptable.
Besides which I do not think its a massive problem anyway, I do not know the exact level of nudity in this game. It looks crass and crude and not something I would choose to play but still it doesnt look that bad, some pixelated boobs and C-strings are not all that serious. A few internet clicks can soon summon far worse.
Kids (boys in particular) will giggle and want to see some boobs, its natural and unless people are using this game for grooming purposes its not a "peado" issue either. 13yr olds wanting to play a boobies game is not child abuse.
Still that said unless devs can ever police adult themed games it will always be a difficult subject, look at the fuss that sex game caused on Steam Greenlight.
EVE online (Ruining low sec one hotdrop at a time)
Gravity Rush,Dishonoured: The Knife of Dunwall.

"Protect Our Kids" has always been the classic approach vector for panic preachers, yas?
Self-pity imprisons us in the walls of our own self-absorption. The whole world shrinks down to the size of our problem, and the more we dwell on it, the smaller we are and the larger the problem seems to grow.
Originally posted by birdycephon I dont know what people are complaining about, God of War games are 10 times more worse than this.
is that so.
Now what does some 8 year old learn from god of war ?
You think he goes and shoot someone with machine gun ?
But imagine that 8 year old doing sex ,he dont need those tanks and explosives for that.
theres tiny minis playing war games with wooden guns all over the world ,would you give them wooden dildo and tell them : play with this with your friends,you can be the punisher.
So, did ESO have a successful launch? Yes, yes it did.By Ryan Getchell on April 02, 2014.**On the radar:http://cyberpunk.net/**
