Dante's Inferno: Lust Level Primed For Epic Controversy

Forgive us for automatically assuming there would be nine distinct levels in Dante's Inferno before we ever actually heard any gameplay details. ...we're just psychic, or something.

It's a super hot action title that many have said appears to be a God of War clone (hardly an insult as far as we're concerned), and throughout the summer, EA has revealed some of the stages present in the adventure. We've seen clips of Anger, Heresy, and Limbo and at this week's Tokyo Game Show, they'll be showing off Lust, which is bound to turn plenty of heads. According to PS3Center, we'll be getting a few titillating puzzles that might be pushing the boundaries of "explicit," and there will be the bare-breasted epic boss, Cleopatra. That's a very, very large chest and the good news is that everything in Dante's Inferno will zip along at a healthy 60 frames per second so...you know, don't worry about jerky frame rate when encountering Cleopatra's massive rack. You can expect to hear more about the game's morality system, too, which sort of reminds us of the good/evil choices in inFamous.  But don't you have to be at least a little evil in the depths of hell?

Dante's Inferno is scheduled to launch on February 9, which also happens to be the release date for Bioshock 2. Stiff competition there.

Bioshock 2 may have amazing gameplay, but what it doesn't have? Gigantic boobs. 2K Games should get on that.

Ah...ha. Just the tip of the iceberg, so to speak? We shall just have to make the breast of it. Of course many posters here couldn't give a hoot about such displays in a game. Personally I find that they are growing on me. I think that they're just swell, these....features in games that are mounding up. Some might say that games are just getting bitty, but I don't know. Perhaps people are simply making mountains out of molehills.

Excellent, I see that the denizens of the land beyond the twin peaks of femininity have a problem. I revel in your displeasure. I well up with delight at every moment of your discomfort. Perhaps you should all lift and separate your anxiety regarding this topic? Draw close to the bosom of humanity, drink heartily the milk of human kindness, and give more thumbs downs.

nudity in video games is almost becoming the norm... i see nothing wrong with it either... if your game calls for it then so be it... parents have NO ROOM to bi*** about it either because, these games are all rated MATURE...

since this game is kind of a god of war ripoff, why not show bare breasts like GoW did on numerous occasions? nudity was normal in the era of greek gods... i am sure nudity is the norm in hell too... even godfather II got in on the nudity bandwagon by showing them off in the gentlemen's clubs... i saw bare breasts in a picture for the saboteur... ninja gaiden has bouncy ones...

it's become the norm folks... it's taken many years to reach this point but, if movies can do it, so can video games...

They got one of the level design guys from the GoW team. The Lust level design is sick, they have people bound together in various poses that make up the structure of the level.

I can see that EA's "Top two ways to make a game sell" were ----

1 - Game must be like the God of War series
2 - Game must have an over abundance of sexual material.

Well, as utterly repulsive as it is, some sick minds actually wrote such a game for the PC. And the scene was not simply a cut scene, it was the point of the 'game'. Perhaps worse was the fact that it was on sale at Amazon until they were notified and promptly removed it. I shall not give more information, as I am trying to forget ever finding the particular news story in the first place. It's shocking - truly shocking - what some people view as entertainment.

@Hexen,
Yeah, Illusion are the makers of the one I was referring to. I don't know of anything that even comes close to the thing I read about. I understand your point about the hookers in GTA, however I think that the context, setting and content of the game that was pulled by Amazon set it apart from GTA.

Definitely getting this over Bio2, it looks very slick and stylish and those backgrounds are cool. I think anyone who went through the difficulty of reading The Divine Comedy will be getting this for a more fun version of Inferno.

Boobs!, there I said it.

I'm not allowed to play simulated rape but you get to play your Grand Theft Auto, your Manhunt, and Killer7. You're certainly the hypocrite. You're allowed to murder people but I can't force sex on someone.

By the way rape is funny just like everything else depending on the context.

Underscore guy stfu. You simply prove my point, you're "sane" for running around with an assault rifle in a video game and killing innocent people on the streets of New York but I'm crazy because I think simulated rape is hilarious. I might remind you just as your "killing spree" is not real neither is my rape fest.
