Lesbian alien sexual relations rejected, accepted by Singapore

While the holiday season has always been a busy time for gamers, 2007 is shaping up to be the best yet. Gamers who own more than one system will have more gaming than they can possibly handle, which certainly isn’t a bad problem to have.

Mass Effect Banned for Lesbian Alien Sex
Upon learning that BioWare’s Mass Effect for the Xbox 360 will allow players with female avatars to engage in rather intimate relations with members of the same sex (but not the same species), Singapore’s censors body has banned the game for sale in the region. “Mass Effect, a futuristic space adventure published by Microsoft Corp., has been banned because of ‘lesbian intimacy,’” said Chetra S., deputy director of the Board of Film Censors, in a statement.

Wait, Mass Effect Unbanned Despite Lesbian Alien Sex
The ban was soon reversed, perhaps after the censor board decided to investigate the material of which they had banned. According to the Straits Times, the game will now be allowed for sale but will bear an “M18” rating.

Street Date Broken on Mass Effect
Those of you down under may be able to get your Alien love on a little earlier than everyone else. According to Kotaku’s resident Australian, a logistics error has made Mass Effect available at several EB Games in the country. Several Kmart stores in the U.S. have also been cited as selling BioWare’s RPG early.

Assassin’s Creed on Xbox 360 vs. PS3

If you have no clue what the supposed "twist" in Assassin’s Creed is, which supposedly occurs in the first five minutes of the game, then be advised that viewing the video will spoil it. If spoilers do not bother you or you simply must know which version is superior, then check out the GameTrailers HD comparison.

Reminder: Download Carcassonne on Xbox Live for Free

As part of Microsoft’s fifth anniversary celebration of its Xbox Live service, it is offering the Xbox Live Arcade game Carcassonne free of charge until the end of November 16. If you haven’t done so yet, log on and get your free game before midnight PDT today.

Vote for Wii, Xbox 360 or PS3 on

Amazon is having another one of its zany vote-for-the-sale, placing the Wii at $79, the 40GB PS3 at $139 and the Xbox 360 Arcade at $99. There’s a catch and much of it is up to chance, but for those who manage to score, it’ll be one sweet deal.

Best Gaming Refresh Ever! I'm going to stop by Kmart on the way home! If they've got it, I'll roll the money on my pre-order of Mass Effect at EB onto Assassin's Creed!

Awesome info, Marcus!!!

What is this about alien lesbian sex? Literally or figuratively? Like sex sex or the way they mean sex when they're talking about something stupid, like making out.

Two chicks kissing = not sex, even two chicks kissing naked slobbering all over each others faces (like they do) STILL isn't sex. Wtf.

I am seriously wondering what game to buy and so far I have so many classics (like the article states) that it is a problem and I don't have enough control and enough hours in the day to play them all. Its a tough problem that I have never faced before. So I don't really know any of todays games to buy until people know its a good game.

BioWare has messed with the whole lesbian thing before. In Kotor, Juhani (the cat lady) is a lesbian, though it's not as explicit. If your PC is female, she does express feelings for you towards the end of the game. It also implies she had a relationship with one of the other Jedi on Dantooine. It talks about it here. Major spoiler warning though if you haven't played the game.

I hope Mass Effect is released for PC. Looks like a good game. They've even brought back some of the fantastic voice actors from Kotor.

Banned in Singapore. They never were too up to date with social policies.

They have legal prostitution though. That country's policies have to be the most incoherent of any in the world.

I dont know... Littering is a stiff penalty, and prositituion is legal. Maybe we have it backwards =)

I have been there, and let me tell you, the streets are nice and clean, and if you want to, why should prostitution be illegal? It shouldnt be anyone's business but the john and the hooker - govt should not have the right to say no.

Singapore does not allow chewing gum in public. California will likely adopt some of their policies in the future.

Actually, Singapore banned chewing gum entirely (public or private) for 12 years. That changed a couple years ago, but you still have to buy from a registered dealer, who records the sale.

I checked the Kmart up the street yesterday after work and they didn't have it out. Now I'll have to wait until Tuesday... and the in-laws will be here....
