Dragon Age II Conspicuously Bereft Of Demonic Breasts

Dragon Age II Conspicuously Bereft Of Demonic Breasts

It’s with a heavy heart that I retire our “Demon Tits” tag. Introduced with Dragon Age: Origins, it seems to be not applicable to Dragon Age II. But it does have blowjobs, according to its ESRB listing.

“In one cutscene, a woman kneels in front of a male character and appears to perform fellatio,” says the ESRB. “There is no depiction of the sex act; the camera pans out to the rest of the room.”

Chickens. Mafia II at least gave a close-up of the recipient’s face.

Other in-game details given up by the ESRB:

• In one cutscene, a man’s severed head is held up then tossed to the ground.

• During the course of the game, characters sometimes engage in sexual dialogue (e.g., “Why is it always about sex with you?” and “Sailing is like sex. Do it wrong, and it’ll make you sick.”).

• Players can also initiate brief cutscene sequences in which couples (male-female or same-sex) are shown kissing and embracing one another in a bedroom as the screen fades to black.

• The words “shit” “ass” and “bastard,” although said in middle-earth-esque English accents, they come off a lot more sophisticated. (In Dragon Age: Origins, the words cited were “shit,” “ass” and “bitch.” So score one for gender equality.)

No Demon Tits, though. Dragon Age: Origins featured no human nudity, but “one female demon character is briefly depicted with bare breasts.” Apparently we don’t even get that in the sequel. Alas.

  • Oh, so that’s where English accents come from! I’ve been trying to figure it out for so long, why didn’t I think of Middle Earth? Also good to know that if I ever need to swear to an American I just need to put on an English accent and I’ll get let off easy because it’s so sophisticated.

  • Curious that they’re taming down the romance scenes (“shown kissing and embracing one another in a bedroom as the screen fades to black”) – a similar thing happened in ME2 compared to the first one.

    Did the negative publicity really have that much of an effect?

  • I particularly love this description

    The words “shit” “ass” and “bastard,” although said in middle-earth-esque English accents, they come off a lot more sophisticated. (In Dragon Age: Origins, the words cited were “shit,” “ass” and “bitch.” So score one for gender equality.)

    The wording is just precious!
