    Heh, what I found more amusing about that level was that the more you burned, the more baked your character sounded, especially the whole "that... is the best... thing ever man!" bit at the debrief

    I picked up my tenth relic and unlocked the Bull but I can't find it in the vendor. What horrible nonsense is this?

    It should show up under "specials" rather than shotguns/ pistols (cant remember which the Bull is). You will need to pay the purchase fee to use it though.

    Correcting previous error - stuff that unlocks through reclaiming sites becomes free. Specialist variants unlock but still require initial purchase and come under their own listing (it's hard keeping track of all the various different systems sometimes!)

    The story is very well acted, choreographed and altogether hangs together incredibly well.

    The last time I was drawn in this much was The Walking Dead, although FC3 doesn't have the same level of emotional attachment. Having said that, I really can't wait to put a fucking arrow through that twats face....
    Ha, the story in this is absolute piss, doesn't stop it being my potential GotY though.

    It takes a bit of a bad turn with the mumbo jumbo shit as I stated a couple pages ago, but in terms of actor performance and against peers it still fares a lot better than glorified framing devices such as Skyrim, Sleeping Dogs, The Sabateur, and countless others which simply seem to include a narrative premise as a bare-bones justification for the setting.

    Would you say this game is unsuitable for an 11yo?

    They play CoD, Gears and that sort of stuff so the odd f-bomb is ok, but i wouldn't let them play GTA or Red Dead Because of the use of 'cunt' and sex scenes etc,.

    @McGeeza

    There's female nipples and straddling, implied rape, and in the intro movie to the co-op mode, the Scottish character drops the c-word almost very sentence, so I'd say absolutely not suitable (and there's all that other wholesome stuff like getting wasted on drugs, skinning animals for resources, slitting people's throats etc.).

    I'll agree to disagree with you there. Vaas is the only decent character. The others (especially you posse of friends that you were holidaying with) are beyond one dimensional.

    That says anything is fair game to me. COD has some majorly twisted shit in it

    Agreed but i didn't let them play the 'No Russian' level. Although i suspect they have probably played it at a friend's house but i can only do what i can do.

    I find PEGI ratings subjective so that's why i asked the question.

    I'd encourage my kid to hit RDR, despite being violent the main plot pushes a pretty strong anti-violence message.

    if you're using video games to teach your kids moral messages you're beyond help.

    Doesn't RDR have rape and necrophilia in it?

    you have a strange set of priorities if you think RDR with the C word is unacceptable but deliberately visceral stuff like Gears or perhaps the latest CoD, with a violent slow motion slitting of a woman's throat right in front of the camera, is by comparison more acceptable.

    And Far Cry does have the C word. There's a coop character that uses it all the time.

    It's not a kids game.

    But that doesn't seem to make a bit of difference these days because peer pressure says who cares about what's right or wrong.
    The sad fact is that my kids will end up playing these games at a friend's house anyway. The alternatives are to become mormons or make them recluses.

    I'm trying to be as responsible as i can without making them the weird kids that don't play video games and no-one wants to talk to. It's a tough situation and i make no excuses but at least i'm taking an interest. My parents didn't have a clue what i was playing as a young teen.

    Do you talk to your kids' friends' parents about it?

    I do sympathise. It was the same with films when I was a kid. But generally most of my friends' parents were as well informed as mine, so it was still rare that I got to see stuff. There was really only one friend whose parents didn't care.

    So I guess the issue can be solved as much as possible with talking and informing other parents. Really the issue is ignorance. Most parents just don't realise what's in these games.

    Kids have always got hold of stuff that's not age appropriate.

    Always going to be the case.

    It's a nice idea. When kids come to my house and they invariably want to play MP CoD or BF3 i ask them if their parents allow them to play violent games. They can of course lie, but al least i've made them aware that there may be an issue.

    It's important to let them know that it isn't ok to just watch and play anything they like. If you at least try and put up a few barriers they may stop and think about what they are doing and not think it is normal, or worse something naughty that they have to do behind closed doors.

    Nothing says '18' like a pimp roughing up a prostitute. Badtown.

    Cheers. I thought I'd checked in Specials. I'll have another look. I definitely got the popup and the star is filled in on the progress page.

    and you were right to make that decision.

    sadly other people's parents are another matter.

    it would help if shops (including online which of course is impossible to police) didn't sell games to kids like this, or by proxy (knowing full well it's for the kid that's stood right there). I've seen this happen at Game time and time again. Fuckers should lose their jobs.
    Regardless of whether or not the kid is right there, as long as there is an adult over the age of consent making the purchase there isn't a lot the shop can do. Age ratings are there as a requirement for a decision from a parent or guardian who can make an informed choice, not a nanny-state outright ban on anything some people might deem to be objectionable - especially when people mature at different rates.

    More could be done to educate parents in the store as far as content is concerned, but then you have the hard-to-shift legacy of the "its just for kids" leftover from a more innocent age.
