"Yank and Shank" is strangely more satisfying than a chainsaw bayonet to the face.

After all these years, and growing up with Windows 3.1, I have seen an entire evolution of computers and software. Touch screens and large resolutions were a pipe dream just 15 years ago. Now it's the norm. Going from a Packard Bell (yes, before HP) that couldn't run 3D Ultra Mini...

The Other Violent Meat

All this hoopla about Manhunt 2's AO rating got me wondering what other games were violent enough to get an AO. Turns out, there's only one: Thrill Kill.

No, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas doesn't count, it was re-rated for its not-fully-deleted sexual content, not its violence which only scored it an M. Plenty of other games, like Singles: Flirt up your Life, also got their AO rating for sexual content. Only Thrill Kill was purely about the violence.

In a sad sign for Manhunt 2, Thrill Kill was never released. Virgin Interactive was going to publish it for the Playstation, but then they got bought by EA just a few weeks before the game's launch. EA, however, immediately pulled the plug and said they'd never publish such a violent game. The four-person fighting game engine developed for the game was used in Wu-Tang Shaolin Style, however.

I don't know if it counts as piracy or not since the game was never released, but you can download it here if you like.

As a sign of the times though, based on that footage, I'd say that Thrill Kill  would never get an AO rating now, with those silly, over-the-top kills and now-primitive graphics.
