I don't get off to naked characters in video games

... but I have to admit I got a kick out of seeing Heavy Rain's Ethan Mars in the buff over the weekend.


The image above is just a teaser, of course. To see more of Ethan's, er, equipment, go here and click on the last two screenshots. (FYI: Two screenshots of the game's female protagonist, Madison Paige, in the shower can be seen there, too.)

Don't expect to experience either scene in retail copies of the just-released PS3 title. Instead, expect "clever camera angles and well-placed objects to protect [your] eyes from the beauty of the naked form," as the folks at gamesradar.com so eloquently put it.

Buy: Heavy Rain

Oddly enough, I just got this game today, and yes, I did see male ass. I screamed the entire show sequence. There is just something so disturbing, but yet, funny.

Gosh, he's pretty well endowed. Good for him! :-P

"Disturbing yet funny" -- that sounds like a good description to me :)

Justin: I'd love to have been a mouse in the room while the designers made this character. Do you think they argued over his size? I'll bet they did! :)

I'll bet they left it up to one guy in the end. And really? It's a pretty ideal size...not porno-tastically big, and not aww-inducingly small, either.

Bryan Ochalla said...

Yeah, I'm glad whoever was in charge of making this model didn't go overboard and make him 12 inches long or something like that...

LOL That would require a bigger blur.
