Assassin’s Creed II contains the phrase, “She cries as I fuck her”

Some headlines are born great. The ESRB’s detailed its M rating for Assassin’s Creed II, revealing some pretty special dialogue from the free-running sequel.

“Consumers may also wish to know that the game contains strong profanity, both in English and Italian (e.g., ‘f**k,’ ‘sh*t,’ ‘c*zzo,’ and ‘m*rda’); the most explicit instance occurs when a man frantically describes a ‘vision’ — ‘I’m at the opera . . . the soprano is so beautiful . . . I’m in bed with her, she cries as I f**k her.’”

There’s more. There’s a “Captain” in it that has “page-boy fantasies”.

“The game contains strong sexual overtones,” said the ratings board.

“During one ‘seduction mini-game,’ players are able to press buttons to kiss a woman and remove her dress; with the woman’s back facing the camera, the two characters lower to bed and blow out a candle. Some scenes take place inside brothels, though no nudity or sexual acts are depicted. The dialogue contains the following sexual references: ‘So the whip or the paddle today?’ and ‘Does your wife know about your page-boy fantasies, Captain?’”

You go, Mr Ubisoft. The game’s out next Tuesday for 360 and PS3.

    Does the ‘whip or paddle’ thing represent a moral dilemma? :-D

    Jesus Christ.
    Mature and edgy fail.

    “I’m in bed with her, she cries as I f**k her.”
    Is that a rehashed twitter from Bobby Kotick himself? ;)

    Odd, sex wasn’t a theme in AC1 at all. Not something that the franchise is know for.

    Although all this could just be 5 minutes of dialogue taken out of context in a 12 hour game.

    @Freek, yeah I imagine that they’re going for more mature themes. Isn’t Italy the home of cappuccino anyway? Hot coffee anyone?

    The US is a funny old place with its mores though isn’t it? They don’t seem to mind graphic violence on mainstream TV yet baulk at sexual content despite having a healthy porn industry.

    Notice how you can change the sentence by adding a comma;

    “She cries as I, fuck her”

    Italians cry for pretty much anything. The line could have been, “She cried when I farted in her mouth”.

    The 1st game had a Muslim setting where women were historically marginalized, this one is set in hot-blooded Italy, it’s not so shocking that women play a more central role.

    The main characters are very different too, you get the impression that Altair was raised as an assassin from childhood, as such his exposure to and interest in women was probably minimal, particularly as the elite he considered himself to be, he would probably view women as a distraction.

    Ezio on the other hand grew up a normal young man, thus his dick works.

    That’s BBC levels of sexual content really though isn’t it. Can’t see many fapping themselves off to that.

    Although, the cold lonely nights are drawing in. Never say never…

    Actually, one of the assassination targets in AC1, Abu’l Nuquod (the Merchant King of Damascus), is strongly implied to be gay. He believes the people hate him because he is “different”, is shown caressing the cheek of one of his male guards during his angry tirade, and claims that he cannot serve the cause of a god who calls him an abomination.

    So there’s your sexual themes right there.

    About as “Mature” as a highschool locker room. Honestly foul language, over the top violence, gore, and sex? How many adults believe those things = matureity? As an adult I think those things = stuff my kids would want to play, but shouldn’t. And all too often I think too much of those things in a game = a game that I won’t enjoy. Mostly because it tries too hard to be so called “Mature”.

    To me, video games have to hold entertainment value. If said things realy honestly entertain a person, I would say that person lacks greatly in Matureity.

    Thats my two cents – rant off.
    That is an opinion, it can not be debated. Although you may have a different opinion(and your intitled). Milage may vary.

    Well, in Assassin’s Creed 3 they can always put the forthcoming (or should that be “forth-cuming” :? ) motion controllers in good use and evolve mini-games like this to something truly spectacular :P

    “Honestly foul language, over the top violence, gore, and sex?”

    It’s hardly over-the-top. If anything, it’s rather tame.

    “wow the sex must have been really bad to make her cry.”

    You clearly haven’t had sex with many women then.
