Default The Witcher - Rated "Mature"

Porn movies are rated X, not sold by any big retailers, and are restricted from kids being able to easily get at them.

A game could be rated AO, released and sold digitally and through other channels in order to preserve full content. It just wouldn't be carried by the major retailers.

"that's industry self-regulation at its finest"

Sounds like we agree but maybe each are referring to different origins, maybe it's a matter of perspective or I didn't word it accurately, but the regulatory body that over sees the rating system are government lackeys and shills, if that’s any clearer.

Examples of these appointments running offices capable of pressing charges would be FCC and an example of a similar board would be the motion picture industry rating board, which are for the most part plants and was exposed in a documentary this year or last.

The current government is supporting the suppression of speech and individual rights by appointing people who m are willing violate constitutional protections and not prosecuting violators.

Back on topic.
I do hope we can find out more about the possible cut content, as I would like to see something official, as well.

Iirc, Mature as it's said to rated here in the US is equilivant to an R rating in moives which allows frontal nudity and sexual scenes.

Trust me, most of the names I have been called you can't translate in any language…they're not even real words as much as a succession of violent images.

Yep, and because of that they can do pretty much whatever they like and need no advertising. You just have to click the adult section on any major retailers web-site to find porn. I'm not going to link em here but I bet most if not all online major retails sell vast amounts.

From what I saw isn't it just a pair of drawn tits in this game? It's more comedy then sex.

So, great news for the German gamers, you will be playing the full and uncensored version of The Witcher.
sounds like they are using it as hype to me. If they merely wanted to inform I think they would just give it.

couldn't agree more. but that's usually the case. I mean, how many adults actually watch the shows on Cartoon Network's "Adult Swim"?

again..meh.

Well, if it was hype, I would expect something more than a forum post. I'd say it's information for those in the community who wanted to know. If it was pr hype, you'd surely see a little more flamboyant bunch of press releases.

Removing the naughty postcards is something I have no problem with though, as it is indeed a bit immature and detracts from me taking the "adult themes" idea seriously. However, I could just as easily have ignored it, so the censorship is unnecessary,really.

Where there's smoke, there's mirrors.

Exactly my reaction (and first indication that all may not be as well as they
sound with this game) when I first read about it a couple of months back…
(they first announced the content cuts for NA in early summer I think)

Hype? Come on. It's a straight-up forum post with no embellishment other than saying German players will be happy they don't have green blood. And as far as I can see - they are.

"naughty postcards"
I just have to ask, wth are naughty postcards?

EU slang for sex? jiggly bits?
If a female wants to show me her "naughty postcards" should I smile or run?

I even tried to goggle fu it, but only gives me real naughty postcards.

Postcards with 'naughty' pictures.

Well there's hype and there's hype. Anything that promotes something is hype, it doesn't necessarily have to be the overblown, stuff it down your throat kind of hype like in Oblivion or the movie Armageddon for it to be called that.

So maybe there's two misunderstandings here. One with the definition of hype (not necessarily a bad thing) and

I see "Great news, you get ..(an) uncensored game" that 16 year olds can buy and you see "Great news..no green blood."

Exactly what it says. Apparently, if you manage to bed a wench, you get a naughty postcard. Like, if she's a milkmaid, she's pouring milk on her mammaries.

(Yep, that was a bit of an uh… what? moment when I first read about it.)

Can you begin to imagine what will happen on some boards!! Little tweenies will be offering to swap/sell them. "I'll trade 2 milkmaids for one bar wench!!"

If God said it, then that settles it!!

Corwin, I don't know how to break this to you gently, but… there *are* pictures of entirely naked women available for free on the Internet. The tweenies don't even have to trade them, since they can make perfect copies.

Egad! Someone is messing with my clean, pure internet?!?!

Next you'll tell me there are message boards that seem to function entirely for people to flame each other.

I might never recover!! I was referring to 'game' based postcards, not general ones!!

If God said it, then that settles it!!

I'll bet that gogamer.com will sell the import version for America. They usually sell import versions of censored games.
