EA Apologizes for Sexual Innuendo in Bulletstorm

EA Apologizes for Sexual Innuendo in Bulletstorm

Well, it looks like EA has caved again. After removing the name Taliban from the Multiplayer in Medal of Honor, I wasnt sure if EA had the balls to stand up to the masses that dont even play games. Apparently, they do not. After numerous people who havent even played the game started complaining about how much sexual innuendo is in Bulletstorm, EA has decided to give in again. Follow me after the jump for the press release regarding the situation.

Today, Steve Wordsmith, one of the creative writing minds behind Bulletstorm, released this apology.

After getting countless complaints about the sexual nature in Bulletstorm, we finally had to do something about it. I personally had no idea how dirty peoples minds really were. Its quite sad to see your work get changed like this, but after all the negative attention about this game, EA pretty much forced us to make the words more kid friendly. Im baffled. I spent some quality time coming up with words that fit the action on screen. How can people associate words like topless, rear entry, or gag reflex as something dirty? These words have very clear intent on the happenings on the screen.

Topless for example, happens when you successfully cut an enemy in half. What else was I supposed to put there that would be precise to the player? If you look at the bottom half of the dead enemy, you can clearly see hes missing his top half, ergo the term topless. Rear entry is talking about shooting a guy in the back. The terminology seemed to be basic knowledge to me. People have both a front side, and a back side, which can also be called the rear.

The one that annoys me the most is gag reflex. You must have a really sick mind to think gag reflex is sexual. Ever take a bite of food to big and start choking? Ever throw up before? You can thank your gag reflex for that. Honestly, to even think that any of these things have a sexual nature, you got to have a really dirty mind to begin with. Sadly it looks like people who wont even play this game have the dirtiest minds, and EA has forced us to change the names into something more kid friendly.

EA announced that a patch to make the words more kid friendly will go live sometime next week after it goes through Microsoft and Sony certification. Some of the changes were provided in the press release.

* Topless will be changed to Pull Yourself Together.

* Rear Entry will be changed to Look Out Behind You!

* Gag Reflex will be changed to Choke on That!

* Double Penetration will be changed to Two Guns, One Dead Body.

Look for the full list of changes when the patch goes live next week.
