    Oh, he broke his heart lol.

    Ali, what's the matter? Jealous?

    The dialogue was hilarious. As for the "gay sex", why on Earth would anyone mind unless they were secretly homosexuals and afraid to admit it and hate gays that do.
    Seriously what is "your" problem if two men or two women want to have sex? You feel left out? You are not their dicks, stay out of it.

    So comp-ali disaproves with what he has seen,And has a right to express what he thinks..

    I honestly don't think a reply like that was in good taste to be honest...EDIT: unless you indended it to be a joke..No real harm done tbh..

    Mind you back on topic: This is the second time this has been posted,And i seen this on both times... (Im not sure if its on the same format) but its quite funny if you keep an open mind about it..

    I can't answer for everyone's opinion

    It sounds a little more in the baskground to me.

    I'm surprised that there's so much fuss about this. I guess bishoujo games hardened me (no pun intended :D).

    Big deal, honestly. So two people love each other. That's what's important... right?

    I wasn't joking and I fail to see how what I said was bad.
    Ali basically condemned both homosexuals and the developers for "daring" to have something like this in the game. I wish I could say I was shocked by his reaction.
    It's not like he has to have sex with another man, be it in real life or in the game. You take certain steps to do this and it is 100% up to you if you do it or not. But I guess free will is a bit much for some (not you Mig).

    If your comment was supposed to be funny, then so was mine.

    It just appeared to be like you where calling Comp Gay for disapproving to the video..Nothing more nothing less...

    It's no big deal for what i see to be honest.. I just wanted to see a reply..

    Like i said earlier its a video to be looked at in an open minded manor.If that can be overlooked then anyone should see this modern day is totally different..

    ok, just I want to clarify something. Even if I called someone gay, I wouldn't mean it as an insult. I would have a specific logic behind it. I don't consider gay people as something bad or shameful etc. Which is partly why I am getting annoyed by homophobic comments.

    Big deal? So what it's questionable, I don't see anybody in uproar about drugs or violence in other games. Or the hot coffee mod for San Andreas

    Actually, there was a huge fuss about San Andreas as far as I remember.

    We tend to know on which side of right and wrong drugs and violence sit. Things that society is divided upon are the ones that cause a disturbance and that's what we have here.

    Sexual instinct has appeared as part of the mechanism of reproduction (which serves to preserve existence of a species). Arguably, in homosexual specimens, that biological mechanism is broken. If a person believes that our creation and design are parts of some plan, and the modern society protects people's right to believe such things, it shouldn't be strange that such a person might find displaying what seems like a deviation from the plan as the most normal of things disagreeable.

    And if you want my personal opinion, that elf is a slut. ;)

    Achievement?! :rofl:

    There were other games (there was even a possibility of gay marriage in Fallout 2, if I'm not mistaking?), but this is probably the first time it was done so graphically in a mainstream game. Come to think of it, I don't remember too many explicit sex scenes or too much casual sex from any game that I've played.

    Somehow he reminds me of Antonio Banderas. :rolleyes: But oh, if you ever play the game just wait until you meet the frenchy bard girl. :p

    No really the game is filled with intricate quality dialogue and NPC-party member interaction surpassing all that's evern been seen in the genre. The 18+ rating is mostly for aspects like the violence and potion making too. It's like going to a movie and be glad to see it's not been disneyfied just to get the younger audience┬┤ money.
