The dreaded AO label that San Andreas has been awarded is pretty much the modern day equivalent to the Scarlet Letter for a game. After the ESRB re-rated the game, retailers such as Best Buy, Target, Walmart, and even Gamestop pulled the game from store shelves. Rockstar says they will have a new version of the game available in a few weeks that does not contain the ability to access the “sex minigame”.
There are threats of lawsuits and fines going around and around. I honestly don’t even care anymore. Rockstar screwed up and made a mistake. The ESRB needs to start playing the games they rate and they need to clarify the rating scale or drop it and adopt the MPAAs ratings system.
With all that crap out of the way, what is everyone going to be playing this weekend? I am going to try and get in a little Starfox Assault and maybe a little Flat Out. Did you guys know that Starfox Assault has the full version of the NES Xevious on it? Why didn’t anyone tell me? I have been trying to get around to SA, but didn’t realize quite how good it was. I am a huge Xevious fan to boot.
