Full Frontal in GTA IV Lost & Damned

February 16, 2009 -

When I ponder the things that I'd like to see in video games someday, a fully nekkid Congressman is not high on the list.

Nonetheless, Kotaku reports that a cut scene in GTA IV: The Lost and Damned, scheduled to release tomorrow, features a male character displayed with full frontal nudity:

[Congressman] Stubbs, in his first meeting with lead character Johnny Klebbitz, is receiving a massage at the private gentleman's club Jousters when we meet him. The Congressman, dressed in nothing but a towel, quickly becomes pretty comfortable with his new biker friend, choosing to deliver his monologue in the buff...

The ESRB rating for the game—which is "M" for Mature—does make mention of the gratuitous digital d*ck on display, noting that the game has "Nudity" in its content. The original Grand Theft Auto IV is listed as having only "Partial nudity."

I wonder what JT thinks right now about the new DLC(I know he's going to shout profane languages in his head)

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Watching JT on GP is just like watching an episode of Jerry springer only as funny as the fights

America has just became its own version of the Jerry Springer Show after a bizarre moment in Florida involving a carnival worker.

Re: Full Frontal in GTA IV Lost & Damned

Knowing Rockstar there might be some creative censoring doen here, character and item potiions conenviently concealing what's there, yet making jokes as to what it is, like Austin Powers.

 

As for JT, he's an opporunist, of cource he'll latch on, being the lamprey he is.

Re: Full Frontal in GTA IV Lost & Damned

Nope, clips are on the 'net already.  Dick + Balls confirmed. 

Re: Full Frontal in GTA IV Lost & Damned

 For those of us who aren't buying this but want to prepare for the coming shitstorm, could we have a link?

My children, ask for dick-n-balls, and ye shall receive dick-n-balls. Enjoy.

Re: Full Frontal in GTA IV Lost & Damned

I...*sigh* wow. I'm more of a "wat" than anything right now, but definitely don't feel any more gay after watching it.

Re: Full Frontal in GTA IV Lost & Damned

Then I agree with the above post that any physics glitches will be hilarious.

Re: Full Frontal in GTA IV Lost & Damned

I strongly approve of this, at least if it's true.  Male nudity is not dirty or wrong, and it's about time we saw a bit of it in something other than a porn game!

Re: Full Frontal in GTA IV Lost & Damned

american TV and movies are already more lenient on male nudity. Ass ahoy!

Re: Full Frontal in GTA IV Lost & Damned

Case in point: the millisecond of porn-star dick at the very end of the movie Fight Club. Unlike the GTA: L&D cutscene (which only shows dick-n-balls for about 5-6 seconds in a "Don't look down--just look straight ahead" manner), the FC part has the naughty-bits plastered across the screen in all of its full screen, subliminal-message-like glory.

I found it hilarious, like a final salute or "fuck you" to the audience.

Re: Full Frontal in GTA IV Lost & Damned

Agreed. It's ridiculous to think that other visial mediums can have nudity yet video games can't.

 

Contray to unpopular belief, video games aren't just for the kiddies anymore.

 

I mean, I know Nintendo HAD to market the NES as a toy to get stores to carry video games again, but, it has kind of created the problems we have now.

Re: Full Frontal in GTA IV Lost & Damned

There's a dozen non-pornographic games that just 'happen' to have a naked or near naked lady in there somewhere. Why not a bloke for once, even if it's not expressly to be gazed at, but as a character confidence type attribute?

I'm going to be more interested in the reaction of general gamers; are people going to start running away in a homophobic craze under the belief that seeing a naked man will make them less of a man?

 

(I'm going to laugh my ass off if the 'gravity physics' are off, btw. After DoA:Xtreme 2's "I'll black my eyes with my own breasts" type physics. I'm sorry if that comes off feminazi-ish, "see how you like it when it's your sex!", but I would be amused.)

Re: Full Frontal in GTA IV Lost & Damned

Do you really see little difference between unnecessary cleavage and full frontal nudity?

----------------------------------------------------

Debates are like merry go rounds. Two people take their positions then they go through the same points over and over and over again. Then when it's over they have the same positions they started in.

Re: Full Frontal in GTA IV Lost & Damned

There's unneccessary cleavage, and then there's "balloon boobs that only just have the nipples covered" Yes, full frontal nudity is worse, but there isn't really a male equivilent to cleavage (Unless he's really, really fat.) So it's difficult to make a straight comparison.

Re: Full Frontal in GTA IV Lost & Damned

I think the big fear people have is not that seeing  a naked man will make _them_ gay, but that it might encourage other people to be gay.

Re: Full Frontal in GTA IV Lost & Damned

Oh noes! Think of all the 17 year old who will be perminatly scared by seeing a body part most of them have already! 

They might *shutter* even become gay because of it!

Re: Full Frontal in GTA IV Lost & Damned

Well, it looks like all of Jack Thompson's time looking at Gay Porn is going to pay off (aside from the masturbation- I think he is a closet homosexual). 

Expect the usual press release:

- GTA4 has gay sex in it, just like Bully

- working with authorities to have Strauss Zelenick arrested

- wrote a book called "Out of Harm's Way"

- Utah anti-games bill

- etc.

 

Also, the NIMF is gonna shit themselves.

Wait, was this about GTA IV, or something else?

Re: Full Frontal in GTA IV Lost & Damned

lol yeah dont forget his appearence on CBS 60 minutes.

Thats always apparently relevant. Even if you just ask him what he wants for dinner.

Re: Full Frontal in GTA IV Lost & Damned

"Honey, what do you want for dinner?"

"*sigh* As I said in my appearance on CBS' 60 Minutes, my meal of choice is STEAK!"

"You never said that on 60 Minutes..."

"Well I meant to, okay?!"

Re: Full Frontal in GTA IV Lost & Damned

" So what do you want for dessert? "

" SIGH.. are your frontal lobes FRIED woman!. I quite clearly selected my dessert on page 32 of my book 'Out of harms way', and before you ask, i selected my beverage on Fox news when i was present as their school shooting first ammendment expert! 

If you ask again, ill sue you for Libel! AND I DONT MEAN FIGURATIVELY!"

Re: Full Frontal in GTA IV Lost & Damned

Anyone else think if it was boobies the rating would instantly change to AO?

Re: Full Frontal in GTA IV Lost & Damned

No, but our society's double standards require any games with vag to be AO.

This is just Rockstar pushing the boundaries.  And that's ok with me, I think someone needs to.  Eventually, they will squeeze full adult content into the M rating and AO will be the game version of NC-17.  Then we will finally have freedom of expression - or at least the same level of freedom as other media.

Re: Full Frontal in GTA IV Lost & Damned

One can only hope.

Re: Full Frontal in GTA IV Lost & Damned

No.  Plenty of M-rated games have shown boobies.

Re: Full Frontal in GTA IV Lost & Damned

I must be playing the wrong games then. Or I'm just still annoyed by the Oblivion topless mod fiasco. Although they did get slapped with an M rating, I'm just convinced it was solely because of the topless mod.

Re: Full Frontal in GTA IV Lost & Damned

God of War immediately comes to mind.

Although the third sister of fate in the second was definitely NOT necessarry.

Re: Full Frontal in GTA IV Lost & Damned

Not it was not.

Not even Jabba would hit that.

Re: Full Frontal in GTA IV Lost & Damned

Not really.

Re: Full Frontal in GTA IV Lost & Damned

Queue the anti-porn and anti-video game dumbasses in three...two...one.

Seriously, I don't want to go looking for myself, but how long do they show the shlong, and is it really that big a deal? Do you really think anyone would be so offended to cry for a ban? How long does it take to emotionally/psychologically scar a child? Better yet (if there really is some kid playing GTAIV: L&D), why is the kid playing GTA, and where the hell are his/her parents?

Sorry, I'm getting a little ahead of myself......Just...Brace yourselves for a shitstorm impact of idiocy...if that makes sense.

Re: Full Frontal in GTA IV Lost & Damned

Silly thing if everyone gets upset over this. We all know who is going to claim sex scenes involved in it. As it stands, it is DLC, must be bought with money through accounts that parents should be monitoring. Don't forget about the standard parental controls to stop games like this from being played.

I'm not interested in the Lost & the Damned though, so I wonder how popular this DLC will be for GTAIV fans.

ZippyDSMleeEvil within is a badly designed game.11/27/2014 - 7:28pm
Andrew EisenSure but you said "widens," hence my confusion. Looking into it, yep, there's a tweak to completely re-frame the image, adding more info at the top and bottom. You apparently need a fairly beefy rig to keep it running smooth when you do that though.11/27/2014 - 6:48pm
Matthew Wilsonthere is vertical fov, not just horizontal fov11/27/2014 - 6:38pm
Andrew EisenWell, you can widen it to 3:1 or even 10:1 but I don't know why you'd want to. From what I understand it's the missing visual info at the top and bottom that some object to, not that there isn't enough on either side.11/27/2014 - 6:36pm
Matthew WilsonI think it widenss the fov, so you get to see more.11/27/2014 - 6:31pm
Andrew EisenI don't see how as doing so would not add any visual information to the top or bottom of the screen.11/27/2014 - 6:04pm
Matthew Wilsonfrom what I read, getting rid of the black bars and stretching it out made for a better play experience.11/27/2014 - 5:59pm
Andrew EisenFrom what I hear, there's a ton of "look up and shoot at the guys above you" stuff in the game that the wider frame doesn't accommodate such actions well.11/27/2014 - 5:55pm
Andrew EisenHaving a game run in scope is not necessarily a bad thing but like any aspect ratio, you have to compose your shots correctly.11/27/2014 - 5:55pm
Neo_DrKefkaThe Evil Within was pretty bad and to make it worse the way the screen size made it hard for you to see even on a big screen it really hurt the game. Being Artistic is great but when you focus on art rather than what sells you run the risk of that happen11/27/2014 - 5:33pm
