Mass Effect Andromeda Promises "Totally Softcore Space Porn"

BioWare responds to a couple of fan questions following a post a few weeks ago on the BioWare Social Network Fan Forums revealing an "M" ESRB rating for Mass Effect Andromeda (thanks VG247). The rating says the game includes partial nudity and strong sexual content, and Aaryn Flynn tweets a reply to a query about this, saying "Yes it's totally softcore space porn." When asked if he was trolling his followers, he follows up with a tweet saying simply, "Oh I'm not."

Eh... we're all a bunch of nerds/geeks at heart, and we want to see some of that alien bootay. You know it to be true!

Really though, core audience loves these "romances" and wants to see. Plus curiosity I guess, since you never see most of these races "naked".

By "totally soft core space porn" I guess they are saying that there won't be a dialog choice for your romantic interest that says, "Care to go fisting behind the Mako?"

These type of things in games, just like in movies always makes me go why?

If I wanted to see a long drawn out romance sequence, I would watch porn. They just need to show enough that people go "ok they had sex"

You watch porn for long drawn out romance sequences? Porn has romance sequences??

All porn is a long drawn out romance sequence. It might not be your definition of "Romance", but 50 shades of grey sales really tell you what peoples definitions are.. hah

I hope there's other people you can woohoo with besides your team mates, as none of them seem all that interesting.

In any case, maybe at least they'll take their underwear off now.

There's a huge difference between the sex scenes in say Witcher 3 and God of War's grunting and head-board banging. Just like the Witcher series, Mass Effect is a character driven RPG and hopefully ME:A takes initiative from the Witcher and makes the sex scenes about the characters, not the sex.

The "romance" in every BioWare title is about as considered and mature as a group of fifth graders snickering at the utterance of "penis" during a sex ed class.

generally i agree, but most of the time the scenes are used to communicate some sort of subtext about a character, or their relationship, or some other plot based element

but when its just purely T&A stuff, its generally underwhelming in the context of softcore.. which is probably why that doesnt seem nearly as prevalent these days as it was in the 80s-90s

i do remember the ME devs saying they had moved on from the awkwardly same-y sex scenes from the previous games and moved on to actual hand crafted motion capped sequences that are unique for each interaction... and im sure it was quite amusing for them to do all that so it should be interesting (and humorous) to see what thats all about

IMHO you cannot show a representation of life without it also involving sex... it's so intrinsic to our being. Having love interests and sex scenes helps us to connect to the story and the character we are playing. I for one am glad Witcher 2 & 3 helped remove the stigma of sex scenes in games designed for adults, and showed that they could be done with maturity & style. Sure there's some digital nudity in there but these scenes are about the characters, how they connect, how they show their affection, not the sex itself.

Lets not forget these games are also rated Mature.

Sad that Bioware has been reduced to this......

This has been a hallmark of the series since the first game. Is this in any way surprising?

Because the scores of Mass Effect devotees buy into it...

Like they say in France, you need to get down with the crudites before you get down with the nud-itay. Zut alors!
