Dragon Age II Has Quite a Lot of Gaiety
By on February 8th, 2011

I am pretty sure my readers are used to my terrible puns in the title. It is a habit I cannot let go of, much like the habit of exploring every possible relationship possible in a Role Playing Game (RPG). To that extent, Bioware’s games have always been liberal even slightly rainbow colored. Although the option was glaringly missing in Mass Effect 2, Bioware have decided to let gamers from all orientations (except the slightly unconventional ones, um) experience virtual love in a fantasy world in their own way.

In other words, more homosexual romance options! In Dragon Age: Origins, Zevran Aranai delivered men from the pangs of homosexual lovemaking (the elf was an amorous and libidinous assassin), while Leliana the Orlesian bard did the same for female gamers (which as we know exist in the bodies of Many Men Online Role Playing as Girls {MMORPG} ).

The game itself is mature beyond this fine treatment of the rainbow pride movement. According to the ESRB’s rating synopsis, the game has its fair share of dirty talk as well as one oral sex scene (cough, cough, Bioware):-

During the course of the game, characters sometimes engage in sexual dialogue (e.g., “Why is it always about sex with you?” and “Sailing is like sex. Do it wrong, and it’ll make you sick.”). Players can also initiate brief cutscene sequences in which couples (male-female or same-sex) are shown kissing and embracing one another in a bedroom as the screen fades to black. In one cutscene, a woman kneels in front of a male character and appears to perform fellatio—there is no depiction of the sex act; the camera pans out to the rest of the room. The words “a*s,” “bastard,” and “sh*t” appear in dialogue.

Much fun to be had by the RPG loving legion in about a month’s time, eh?
