The "Sex-Box" Race for President

If you want to know what Mass Effect is really all about, well. Yahtzee knows.

ME isn't anything resembling a sex game, either. It's a sci-fi RPG with some curse words. There's a sex scene, sure, in which you see about two seconds of badly pixelated skin. No actual nudity. The vast majority of the game is flying around waiting for aliens to shut up so you can shoot stuff, as one might expect from an FPS/RPG.

Oh. And it's rated M. For Mature. Obviously you want to drag the president into what should be a matter of simple parenting.

I mean, if this guy wants to get all up ons, maybe he should be looking into some of those Japanese mutant love harem games. Just sayin'.

One can envision this goofball and Jack Thompson circle jerking until their hands are raw with .. righteous fervor, though. Good to have friends.

Now where's the rail gin to get that image out of my mind. Good Lord.
