Guy Game Banned - Under-Age Sex Photos to Blame
It might be an elaborate PR stunt. It might be a staggering blunder of epic proportions. Whatever, a Texas court has banned the sale of the shockingly poor The Guy Game following claims that it features under-age nude shots.

A girl went to court claiming damages following her alleged inclusion in the game, aged just seventeen. To make matters worse, she also claims to have not consented to the photographs that were used being taken in the first place.

The photographic work is reported to have been snapped during a Spring Break pies-out extravaganza with the girl, named only as Jane Doe, stating her real first names were also used.

You see, although the girl went to Spring Break, got hammered and removed her clothes, she “…is still a teenager and wishes to attend college, develop her career and be active in her community and church," the lawsuit asserts.

SCEA, Microsoft, Take-Two and developer TOPHEAVY are all named in the suit, and the game withdrawn from sale with immediate effect.

And that's what makes me think it's a "clever" marketing stunt. They'd sell more of this "game" if it was banned than if it was sold for a penny on every street corner throughout the land.

Did you guys read the IGN/N-Sider article on Retro?

The guy who made this was the ex-president and founder of Iguana (Activision) and eventually Retro. If you don't know, Retro Studios is famous for creating Metroid Prime and its sequel.

You'll have to read the article to really understand the irony of this story.

Also, I've masturbated furiously to that 17 year old girl on multiple occasions. Just giving the heads up.

If you do not know it is kiddie porn and then you realize it is kiddie porn it does not make it better porn because it is illegal.

Hmm. It's not kiddie porn in England.

It's legal to have sex at 16, and it's legal to appear topless in a national newspaper at 16... so The Guy Game is not illegal in any way in the UK.

And lets face it, topless adolescent revellry isn't "porn" in the estimation of any civilised country. Texas, however...

I remember The Sun's highly tasteful countdown to Lindsay Dawn-Mckenzie's Page 3 appearance on her 16th birthday.

Poor innocent flower, It Woz the Sun Wot Corrupted Her.

There is a difference in nudism or naturalism and pornography. Nudism believes in the freedom from the restrictions of clothing, Porn is for sexual gratification. And you may need to check [snip] out there.

While it's always nice to hear about alternative lifestyles, please keep you adverts for dating sites to yourselves, unless you want to pay for them of course.
