Dragon Age sex mini-game “painful to watch,” says Shack

Shacknews has published an Xbox 360 hands-on of BioWare’s Dragon Age: Origins and revealed that the RPG features a sex mini-game that is so bad it’s “painful to watch.”

But in creating what is essentially a sex minigame within Dragon Age, BioWare is fully entering territory that I’m not sure it can pull off. Sex in games is still in the pubescent stage. Hammy voice acting and stiff 3D models make for awkward, pimply approximations of intimacy. One can only hope these early efforts lead to eventual maturity. In the meantime, they can be painful to watch.

Full thing through the link.

    That wasn’t enough explanation? I thought I’d already managed to ruin the joke.
