ESRB explains why new Leisure Suit Larry is rated Mature
ESRB have put up their rating for Leisure Suit Larry: Box Office Bust, giving it an M for blood and gore, drug reference, mature humor, strong language, strong sexual vontent, and violence.
In the rating they go into much more detail about the game, commenting they are “jokes about masturbation, penis size, bestiality, inflatable sheep, lesbians, oral sex, and pornography (e.g., “I had to retire from porn, it became too much – I couldn’t swallow it any more”); everyday objects and environmental features (e.g., statues, cacti, architecture) are sometimes stylized to resemble male genitalia or breasts”
They go onto say “some of the over-the-top humor also contains references to getting “stoned” and being spiked with Rohypnol, a date rape drug (e.g., “Was I roofied? Is my…bleeding?”). Players can hear frequent profanity (e.g., “f*ck,” “sh*t,” and “p*ssy”) as well as some less conventional terms (e.g., “c*ntsplices” and “c*nterbalance”) in the dialogue.”
Furthermore, it is revealed that “during the course of the game, players can hit zombies with a shovel, engage in brief hand-to-hand combat against enemy goons, and shoot bandits with a pistol on a western movie set. When players enter a haunted mansion, they can see bloodstains and severed limbs and torsos on a table.”
Leisure Suit Larry: Box Office Bust is now in the hands of Codemasters after Activision Blizzard announced they would not publish it after their merger.
The game is expected to release in April. We are sure thier will be loads of complaints before that day comes.
