Rumor: Kane & Lynch Sequel Boasts Major Shock Value
MINOR SPOILERS AHEAD
The original simply didn't live up to the hype, but Eidos plans to make the sequel more appealing...and perhaps shock value will factor in as well.
According to Kotaku, while the first Kane & Lynch was most certainly "Mature"-rated, Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days may be pushing the envelope. They first cite an exceedingly strange teaser video - follow the links - that almost defies explanation and then, they tell us about an insider e-mail they received that talks about one particularly eye-opening level: Kane and Lynch run around naked. Yes, through the entire level. But that's not the interesting part; the interesting part is that they've lost their clothes because they just narrowly escaped being sodomized. ...okay, that might cause a few heads to shake. Kotaku is still waiting to hear back from Eidos PR at this point but we have a feeling they may not receive any response; the biggest response will undoubtedly come from gamers and - God forbid - anti-game activists, if they ever catch wind of this. I guess the question is, are we crossing the line?
Or is it not that much different than "Pulp Fiction?" As the industry continues to advance and everything becomes more visually realistic, stuff like this is bound to raise the ire of many...
