Gay Character Plans: ME3 Yes, DNF No

Casey Hudson tweets about the inclusion of potential gay love interests in Mass Effect 3, BioWare's upcoming RPG sequel: "Happy to confirm #ME3 supports wider options for love interests incl. same-sex for m&f chars, reactive to how you interact w/them in-game" (thanks Joystiq via GayGamer). On a semi-related note, a recent post on Eurogamer has word that a "gay robot" sidekick (Claptrap?) was dropped from plans for Duke Nukem Forever, though this character could still appear in a future title. The idea was "to explore how Duke would relate to a peer that might have a different sexual orientation," says Randy Pitchford. The Gearbox boss offers a spoiler while attempting to avoid spoilers: "I don't want to spoil it because we might go there. Ultimately the robot was in a situation where for an order for victory against the aliens to be accomplished, the robot's inner workings a nuclear generator had to be sacrificed" (thanks Kotaku via GayGamer).

As if the Duke wasn't a member of the Gay Liberation Front. Remember him looking into every mirror saying "Damn - lookin' goooood!"

ME3? Wow. You've never had sex if you've never made out with a Krogan in pink armor.
 
Consoles? I owned two: a Pong clone and an Atari 2600. And that's it.

The Duke is well known for his tolerance after all.
Duke is a walking bafoon stereotype. Also I never liked the word "tolerance." Tolerance implies superiority or belief one is right. I like coexistence.

Isn't this something we should work our way into slowly? Give it a few years for the door to the gay network closet to open. Maybe we could start with the double entendre and some innuendo before we launch full into the gay computer revolution revolution. I have a hard time watching gay scene's on HBO and Showtime, not sure how I'm going to be able to handle finding out that my favorite character is into hardcore BF weekends.
