Sex Returning To God Of War III?
Sex, in some capacity, has always existed in the God of War series. In the original, Kratos sparked major controversy when he went to bed with two topless ladies, then proceeded to rock their world until the vase fell off the bedside table. This mini-game simply had you perform a series of button prompts in order to achieve full climax, and you didn't actually see anything besides the jiggling vase. You heard the moans of the women and prior to the event, you did see them topless on the bed, but that was about it.
Then there was more nudity sprinkled about the games, but hey, it fits. And as it turns out, according to European gaming site PS3 Sense, a sex mini-game should return in God of War III. Now, we're not entirely sure what they plan to do, because team member Stig Asmussen seemed on the fence about the issue:
"The sex mini-games are a double-edged sword: we're damned if we do, damned if we don't. If we do include a sex mini-game and don't add anything new to it, then people will say it's getting old. If we don't include the sex mini-game, then the fans will be in an uproar."
Well, perhaps "uproar" is too strong a word; we'd like to believe that most of us are mature enough not to care too much about such an addition. We should conclude that if the content fits the rest of the presentation - and it probably does - than it fits nicely into the atmosphere. If it's just there for kicks, then it's not necessary. We'll just have to wait and see what they have in store this time around...
