Sex in an online game? It's about time. Naughty America: The Game is the first of its kind: A massively multiplayer online world that allows players to do what they've always wanted to: be naughty. Check out the trailer.

All links NSFW. Site contains cartoon nudity. Oh, Flash and crappy music abound. You have been warned.

i think they missed the memo that sex in online games has been around for a while, and done much better, though i suppose since i think its all pretty creepy, i'm not much of a good judge.

this just pisses me off because its just another example of "game makers" taking some terrible game engine but putting something "scandalous" in because thats what the kids reallllly want. it bugs me even more when the game takes off because of it. coughmortalcombatcough.

I've long postulated that MMO creators don't give a rat's ass about game experience once a steady revenue stream comes in.

This just cuts through the crap of creating a game in the first place, getting the drool-worthy MMO revenue from nothing more than a visual skin for cybering. Toss in virtual pixel dress-up and home-building for extra real life money, profit abound!

Until they realize that even with the guys who play as underaged or barely legal girls, it'll still be a virtual sausage fest, and you gotta supply your own booze. Bummer.

Excuse me? Mortal Kombat was groundbreaking in its day, particularly in the implementation of the combo system, as well as its creative input commands. John Tobias and Ed Boon are also to be lauded for their use of photographed actors instead of drawn sprites, an artistic technique which had never been used before in a head-to-head fighting game. It certainly didn't hurt matters that the cast of Mortal Kombat were largely professional martial artists and stunt players, including Daniel Pesina, Richard Divisio, Elizabeth Malecki and former WMAC title-holder Ho Sung Pak. Mortal Kombat II only improved on the formula, by featuring sharper graphics, smoother animation and larger character sprites, as well as new cast members including Tony Marquez and Katalyn Zamiar. Unfortunately, contract disputes regarding console distribution led to hostilities between much of the cast and the producers, and the resulting walk-outs (primarily led by Pak and Zamiar, who were dating at the time) surely were a factor in the pronounced all-around poorness of Mortal Kombat 3.

Sex in online games has been around almost as long as, well, online games. This is news? Never really appealed to me, but whatever floats your boat.

And yeah, it isn't all far 40 year old guys. It's actually quite popular with the ladies.

"fat" 40 year old guys. They are indeed all far away, it is devoutly to be hoped.

Clearly, you've never seen their videos...

*cheesy dream transition*

An office setting, somewhere in America.

Woman: My husband doesn't satisfy me.
Man: That's a shame.
Woman: (Undresses man and performs oral sex on him.)

The couple then proceeds to have intercourse in various aggressive, male oriented possitions, ending with a facial, clearly what every woman in America is complaining her husband isn't giving her. And the overdubbed satisfaction is, uh, badly acted and not always appropriate for what's on screen.

Why would the game be any different?

if you think mortal kombat was a good fighting game, you were obviously 12 when it came out and thought it was "bad ass" to be able to pull some dudes heart out after you button mashed him to death. being the age that i am, i too was interested at first, but then realized what a terrible game it actually was.

terrible hit detection, choppy fighting flow, poor control, vastly uneven characters, the list goes on.... try comparing it to something like street fighter II and see how it stacks up.

and you only further illustrate my point, since everything you mention has very little to do with actual game play, and everything to do with bullshit flash and sparkle. ohhhh real actors wow. i bet you think night trap ruled the school too.

It's not really intended as news. It's just supposed to be funny (in a pathetic sort of way). The claim that they "were the first" was their own, not mine. I should have added italics. ;)

Yeah, I loved that. Especially the "GET OVER HERE!" before the big rip-job. Makes me nostalgic for the old Sega Genesis.

Sigh.

It is clear that teishu is older and wiser than Faint of Butt. Heh heh - FoB (once a 12 year old! Holy shit!) didn't even know that he was further illustrating teishu's point! Laugh... out... loud...! Puh-owned or something!
posted by palinode at 12:35 PM on March 2, 2006


I'm gonna second teishu. Mortal Kombat is not a very good game. Not only does it have poor controls, but the fact that it used photographed actors instead of drawn sprites makes it worse, not better. The graphics were pretty bad. Not only that, but it wasn't the first game to use photographed sprites. Pitfighter came out in 1990 (2 years before) and Narc came out in 1988 (4 years before) and both were terrible with bad control as well.

I am of the opinion that Donkey Kong is the best game ever.

How did you nerds take a perfectly good thread about sex and turn it into an argument about Mortal Kombat vs. Street Fighter II? Have any of you ever actually kissed a girl?

(Ladies, feel free to answer that last question as well.)

Has Mortal Kombat really aged that poorly? You're right, of course, that it fails to measure up to Capcom's or SNK's best efforts (which enjoy regular play around the Faint of Butt household), but I recall the control and hit detection as being at least adequate, and as I mentioned before, the input commands were certainly creative, particularly as regarded characters such as Raiden and Kano, who possessed special moves that were performed via joystick maneuvers only. It is true, though, that I enjoyed the character design and mythos more than the actual gameplay, which I suppose is also a major factor in my bitterness over the direction the design took in MK3 (Robots? Phaugh!). I don't suppose I'll ever be able to convince you that it wasn't merely the violence that appealed to me, though, especially because I was, yes, twelve years old in 1992.

I played Second Life for a few weeks (and wrote a few blogs about it here (self link... some pix in the entries themselves probably nsfw)). I can say with certainty that there is plenty of MMO sex going on already. Maybe even the occassional MMOrgy (also probably nsfw. duh.). Why would anyone want to pay for MMO cybersex when they can find pretty much whatever their perverted hearts may desire in Second Life for FREE? Phooey.
posted by hypocritical ross at 1:24 PM on March 2, 2006


I enjoyed MK at the time, but it has aged very poorly, and revisiting it shows that it is indeed a bad fighting game. It doesn't come close to whatever Street Fighter 2 version it was competing with at the time.

Naughty America? *Yawn.* Um...a little doggystyle with a couple of ass spanks is freaky? Really?

Comparing anything of the era to SFII is grossly unfair. It is perhaps the best fighting game ever constructed. No other game had the combination of elegance and balance.

Been done, and done much better.

Second Life is a gushing sticky fountain of perversion all its own. They even have a lively and lucrative prostitution industry.

I recall browsing through an "escort vending machine", and finding several professionals that offered your choice of in-game or real-life services (within a certain geographic area).

Don't forget Slustler, the in-game porno mag (shot and distributed in game and complete with advertisements for in-game sex shops and escorts) for those poor saps who can't even score any VIRTUAL action.

P.S. Save your Lindens - it's not worth $150... um... or so I've heard.

like i said, i fell under the spell of ripping peoples hearts out or burning them into skeletons (block up up, the easiest of the fatalities), however after a little while even at that age i realized it was all glitz, and revisiting it now, you really see how poor a fighting game it is.

and awesomely enough, i too am getting married this summer, though we're going to be in july. and shes hot too.
