spiffytee Posted August 3, 2002 Share Posted August 3, 2002 I originally wanted to make a poll, but my question was too long. Do you think these two games (dave mirra bmx xxx & DOA Extreme Beach Volleyball) will start a trend? After analyzing the console game market (males 18-34,) game developers are focusing on pushing the edge a different way. We already have GTA3, duke nukem, and conker's bad fur day, what else could they have up their sleeves? Up and coming games in question - dave mirra bmx xxx & dead or alive: extreme beach volleyball. I just read an article in game informer which gives the basic rundown. Dave mirra's popular bmx series is outfitted with bmx xxx - formerly known as dave mira's bmx 3. This game is supposed to have mature jokes and themes along a la howard stern show and maxim. i'll save you the time of reading about the jokes they had in the article, cause they were too stern-like. There are also little things like possible mini games of getting fans to flash the player or being able to give the biker a see-through outfit. However, the big thing is that during the game you collect coins in which you can use in "Scores" strip club, where you can unlock dvd rips of strippers. DOA has similar features, custom bikinis (again possibility of see-through ones,) wet t-shirt, and a possible topless mode. There is also a distraction feature, no details, but one can only guess. Like doa, bmx will also try to "bounce." Both companies, temco and acclaim are being quite vague to gain hype. Seems like acclaim is pushing the envelope in advertising, as also seen in irish's tombstone post. The coolest thing about this article though are the marketing directors for each company. The best quote being temco's John Inada. "I don't [think there will be a backlash]. I don't like government to begin with, so anything to make them angry [is fine]. Of course, when I say something like that, Sony and Microsoft grab me and tell me to shut up! [laughs]" Anyway, back to what's at hand. Both temco and acclaim feel that nudity can be given a M rating; for AO games don't sell, because no one wants to sell em. Mabye they'll get that M, after all, R rated movies have nudity. But will these two games start a trend? What do you think? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
