DNF Trailer: Duke Gets Nasty With Aliens And Ladies Alike
Well, of course it sorta steps over the decency line. It's Duke.
Gearbox boss Randy Pitchford recently told the London press not to publish a new trailer for the game, which the developer debuted during a presentation. The reason? The game "dances on the line of decency" and they didn't want their publisher, Take-Two Interactive, to get hounded by various ratings boards. "We don't want our friends at Take-Two to be punished for our creativity," said Pitchford. The trailer in question showed topless strippers, gratuitous swearing, Duke nailing an alien in the private area, a whole lot of g-strings and yes, Duke getting it on with two women at once (no extra details on that). Pitchford feared the ESRB and PEGI boards wouldn't exactly "approve" of the content so he didn't want the video splattered all over the Internet, which makes sense...or does it? Forgive us for being logical but those boards have to see the game eventually, yes? And Gearbox isn't planning on removing that content, right? So...Take-Two will either take the heat now or later but they're still gonna take it.
So we're a little confused as to why Pitchford and Co. want to wait. ...eh, maybe it's just because we want to see that trailer.
