Dante's Inferno: Rated M for Floppy Demon Wang

image

Dante's Inferno seems to have reveled proudly in its "M for Mature" ESRB rating, featuring topless chicks, undead babies, and at least one demon boss who rocks out with his ... you know.

We already knew that Dante's Inferno was really going out of its way to earn an "M" rating from the ESRB - hell, there were "female lust demons with what appeared to be tongues coming out of their nether regions" and a giant topless Cleopatra with unbaptized children "pouring out of [her] nipples" in Susan Arendt's GameX hands-on alone. With the official ratings companion published on the ESRB site, though, we learn that there's plenty more to look forward to in the game.

"Blood often splatters out of monsters' bodies when attacked; weakened monsters can be finished off with a set of commands leading to tongue-evisceration, but more often, some version of dismemberment." Okay, tongue-evisceration. That doesn't sound very pleasant, but it's unclear - is Dante chopping and/or ripping out the monsters' tongues, or is he eviscerating them with his own tongue? If the latter, then damn, dude has one talented tongue.

Moving on: There's intense cutscene violence (but we knew that from the animated trailer), as well as unblessed infants "with sharp blades-for-arms zealously attack Dante in dark spaces. These 'unbaptized' demons resemble babies only in size, as they tend to hack, slash, scream, and impale/get impaled as often as taller demons."

"The game also contains some sexual content and depictions of nudity." Okay, now we're talking - but is there sideboob? Inquiring minds want to know!

"During one sequence, a distraught demon-like creature seizes Dante's right hand and slowly guides it across her bare chest; during another, 'shade minions' in high heels moan lustfully - in the Lust level - as tentacles protrude from their stomachs, their lower regions. As for the nudity: a tapestry-style (hand-drawn) image of a topless woman embracing a man; the same art-style depicting a slave woman - breasts exposed - lying on the floor with the guilt-ridden; a naked woman on a stone slab levitating in the air (only her breasts are fully defined)"

...so, while there might not be sideboob, there's plenty of fullboob. And shade minions with tentacles protruding from their lower regions. (Think about it - modeling and animating those things was somebody's job). But oh no, that's not the best part about this ESRB rating, as we see next:

There is apparently a fight against "a bluish devil/demon in boss-battle mode - its penis visible during the flying and fire-spewing." What's more, in Dante's Inferno there are "equivalent physics applied to female/male body parts." Meaning that yes, there will be a boss battle against a demon whose Jimmyjangles is flopping all over the place. Because anybody can make a game with tits, but it takes a real man to make a game with an animated, dangling Sir Weinerhoffer.

Dante's Inferno GOTY 2010. Calling it right now.

Title=win. That's all I can say and think.

As I said before: "as long as it's not overly immature within context, I don't have a problem with it"

Dante's Inferno got an M rating. Shocking. Utterly and completely perplexing. I did not see this coming in a million years. Nop. I'm stunned I swear.

Next thing you know Australia will be banning it...

... Nah, that's just crazy talk, it'll never happen.

I feel bad that I laughed really loud at this.

OT: I agree with HUBILUB, as long as it is not immature, I have mot problem

Why do I have the feeling this won't be reviewed on Zero Punctuation? ZING!

Nah Atkinson just loves this kind of shit, just you wait and see, he'll become an instant fan

Demon wang, full frontal boob shots, tenticles, undead babies, huge amounts of blood... this game sounds like it was made by dev's with a variety of strange fetishes.

I would seriously laugh if this game, of all games, slipped under the Australian government's radar.

This wins the official Ben Seal of EPIC WIN!

This entire thread has been ninja'd... sorry.

*falls from silly laughter* Yes Dante's Inferno for the motherfucking Win. most games sell with the promise of tits now they go full circle? this definitely is not made for the Aussies sorry guys.

I think the best part about this games ratings will be the descriptors. They can't even categorize the flop-wang as suggestive either. Unless you get a kick out of flaccid wang waving... Hey that could be the next US reality TV hit. I'm sure it would at least make Paula Abdul cry right?

I think I've seen that cock boss - it's err... Well... I mean, you wouldn't want to run straight into him (especially if you were running backwards)...

Let's just leave it at that.

This sounds like the type of game I would be embarrassed to play.

And I'm going to say that they are just trying to hard to create a memorable gaming moment. They're going to put something totally outlandish into the game just to freak the player out. And because it is so strange it will leave a significant impression in the players mind. So if you just want people to remember your game then it works. But you'd think they would want people to remember their game for it's epic storyline or amazing gameplay, instead of a demon that cockslaps you to death.

Also, can someone explain to me what is "AWESOME" about a demon with a giant dick?

This has to be the best article ever.

And I can't wait to play this game, although it could get embarassing if someone, say a parent, walks in on you battling with the super schlong demon.

For (unfortunately not) the last time: Forum threads have absolutely no bearing on what we post on the front page of the site. Many people come to the site and don't read the forums at all. Just because it gets posted in the News Room forum does not make this a forum thread, it makes it a news post.

BEST THREAD NAME EVER.

Mr Funk, you are rewarded an infinite supply of cookies.

Wait...Dante gets to fight Dr. Manhattan?

Maybe I should reconsider my desire to avoid this game.

has this been banned in Australia yet? Mr. Atikson?

Is it that hard to write "Penis"?

Oh man, that second to last line just made me start laughing hysterically, because my boss (who is like 10 feet away from me right now) is named Weitzenhoffer.

Xvito:
Is it that hard to write "Penis"?

Is it hard? No.

Is it not as funny? :P

I was a little worried. I thought that this was the sole reason for the M-rating. Glad to see how horribly naive I was.

The demon I probably won't have much a problem with, so long as it's not like that one from Bible Black...

HUBILUB:
As I said before: "as long as it's not overly immature within context, I don't have a problem with it"

They are rickrolling internet celebrities yet you expect maturity from them? Or quality for that matter, seeing who's making this.

GOTD for the 2010s. Just watch. It'll happen.

I feel somewhat stupid for falling for their obvious marketing ploys and wanting to buy it due to how utterly hillarious it all sounds.

I just want to see if it's worth all the excessive and gratuitous hype. People keep bleating like goats what a God of War clone it is, and I just want the game in my hands to see for myself. If it is a true clone, then it'll be great. Why? Because it will be something I'm familiar with.

And to be honest, after watching nearly all of the developer diaries, I'm not really impressed with how they go out of their way for the shock factor. I've seen crazier, if not similar, things in the Hellraiser movies.

'Is it hard'...muhahaha. One penis joke begets another :P

HUBILUB:

If they execute the game right, I have a feeling this will do a few things: 1; anyone with a BDSM fetish is getting this game. 2; there will be a segment of the gamers who will now be afraid of any sexual content. 3; Those who weren't into bondage, torture, and rape porn will be after this.

I see a surge in Japanese hentai-rape games in the near future.

Xvito:

...You did that on purpose....

Moving on.

Dante's Inferno has pulled out all the stops, hoping to get controversy. They got it. Yay! Sex parts over Substance!

Well, its got balls, I'll give it that.

Hopefully there will be some blood to go along with the tits.

or the average Hentai movie..........

I have to look at demon penis when I play my escapism? And Boobies, my god! I must go have a sulk in the corner.

For the Love of St. Peter, this is not a big deal. I want this kind of video game to be violent.

Yup. This is getting through in Australia.
