Coming soon to your Nintendo: Poo humor, "squirrel love", and "phallic fun". Video games have changed...

Heh, I've been waiting for this game ever since I read some of the first previews of it a year ago. This five minute movie (34 MB quicktime; there's also an 89 MB version) had me rolling in the aisles. But if they keep showing these damn preview movies, there won't be anything left to see once the actual game comes out. (On the other hand, Conker's expressions during that sequence with the flower are priceless!)

My god.....that's insane! I can hear parents screaming worldwide already. It's not going to be pretty.

I really hope parents just read the box and don't turn this into another B!tchfest.

Conker's Bad Fur Day has earned an "M" (Mature) rating by the ERSB. Games rated "M" are suitable for persons age 17 or older.

Please parents, read the box. These ratings, as well as TV Ratings and Movie Ratings exist for a reason.

I'm really impressed Nintendo's letting a more adult-oriented (well, late teenager probably :-) game onto their system. They've long been the "Family" console, and that's cool, but it's about time they took advantage of the wider market.

Weren't these the same guys who wouldn't put the blood in for Mortal Kombat? My, how things have changed :)

Yup, indeed they are, and indeed they have.

It's amazing what the desire not to lose money will do, and with the Pikachu phenomenon fading, they need to do whatever they can to stay in the public eye during the releases of the PS2 and the X-Box, and until the Game Cube is released.

It's a pretty desperate ploy, really. That, or Nintendo say "Oh, damn! This is Rareware. They brought us Goldeneye, Perfect Dark, Banjo-Kazooie and Donkey-Fucking Kong 64. They've produced more >million selling games for our console than anyone else. And they did it without Mario!

Either way, it's a good step forward for Nintendo's viability. Games are so not just for 14 year old geeks.

We're in our twenty's and early thirties now, and we have the money.

According to most of the news I've read about this game -- it's Rareware's idea. It seems they just went crazy after making all those cutesy kids' games, and Nintendo said, "Oh, okay. Go ahead." This is their last game for the N64 anyway, the Gamecube is next.
