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.
Banned for Lesbian Alien Sex
Upon learning that BioWare’s
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. “
, 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.
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
, the game will now be allowed for sale but will bear an “M18” rating.
Street Date Broken on
Those of you down under may be able to get your Alien love on a little earlier than everyone else. According to
resident Australian, a logistics error has made
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.
on Xbox 360 vs. PS3
If you have no clue what the supposed "twist" in
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
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
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.com
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.

Yeah, the colors on the on the PS3 version seemed washed out in that comparison, which is weird since I just finished playing the game for the past few hours and it didn't look anything like their video, even on my cheap-o HDTV. I don't know if they used a different TV from the 360 video, but I can't think of how why the game would look that washed out.
And yeah, there are a few hiccups every now and then when riding the horse quickly or when you get a lot of people on screen at once. Nothing horrible by any means, and barely noticeable when actually fighting people.

So what I want to know is... what gets my money first... Assasins Creed or Mass Effect. As far as washed out colors, I was wondering if that was the video or not... I can't imagine image quality like that would fly on any console.
