The recent release of Evolve and The Order 1886 really got me to thinking about the disparity between the perspective of sales-driven publishers and the quality-driven purchases of consumers. The “Hype Train” is nothing new, but the way it is utilized has been creating far more...

Deadpool Gets Rated M For Herpes, Blow Up Dolls, And Mature Humor

Posted on Wednesday, February 27 @ 22:00:00 Eastern by

The upcoming Deadpool game from Activision and long-time Transformers developers High Moon Studios will feature a blow up doll in not one scene, but two. In fact, you might even play a blow-up doll minigame if you're lucky. The full ESRB rating summary mentions Deadpool's various weapons and firearms, his penchant for the words f***, sh**, and ***hole, and of course herpes:

This is an action-adventure game based on characters from the Deadpool comic book franchise. Players assume the role of Deadpool, a mercenary on a mission to hunt down and capture an evil millionaire. As players traverse enemy strongholds, they use an assortment of melee weapons (swords, sais, giant hammers) and firearms (pistols, machine guns, shotguns) to kill human soldiers and mutant enemies. Battles are frenetic and accompanied by screams of pain, gunfire, and large blood-splatter effects. Some attacks result in dismemberment or decapitations; body parts and bloodstains can be seen on the ground. Players can also employ stealth attacks, in which close-up camera angles depict more severe damage against enemies. Throughout the game, the protagonist provides irreverent commentary and jokes amidst the exaggerated acts of violence (e.g., “No guts no glory” when hanging from his entrails; “Oh that's gonna leave a mark” when dismembering an enemy; “That's because you have more comics than me” when repeatedly beating a character on the ground). The dialogue also contains mature humor, sexual material and innuendo (e.g., “Two less herpes cases to worry about,” “The pipe I was offered gives way more pleasure,” “So if I flip a coin, what are my chances of getting head?”). Other instances of mature humor include an extended toilet scene and the pumping up of an inflatable doll. During the course of the game, the protagonist is briefly shown reaching for and groping a woman's breasts; in another, he is depicted grabbing an inflatable doll's breast while in a hot tub. The words “f**k,” “sh*t,” and “a*shole” are heard in dialogue.

Even when you take out all the jokes about sex and violence, Deadpool still makes for an awesome action-game hero. Let's hope the character delivers all all fronts, both action and humor (which is tough to pull of in games) when it arrives later this year for Xbox 360 and PS3.
