RPS In Second Life: An Orgasmic Bellowing

By Quintin Smith on February 1st, 2010.

SEX!
Pay any attention to that irreverent, smiling spectre we call technology journalism and you’ll probably know two things about Second Life. ONE: That it’s very successful, and the millions of dollars it rakes in are shared with its dashing player entrepreneurs. TWO: That it’s full of sex. You’ll know this from the chocolate-box of articles ranging from I Was A Prostitute In Second Life to I Hired A Prostitute In Second Life to I Was Raped In Second Life to I Was A Rapist In Second Life. Wait, maybe not that last one. Wow. Must remember to pitch that to The Escapist.

Thing is, these two headlines have a habit of existing independently from one another. What I feel no-one’s talking about is that if Second Life is even partially successful because of the sexual freedom it offers, that raises a fat question about the games industry as a whole. If you’ll pardon the euphemism, I think there’s a huge, important point this game is making, and it’s waving it in our direction. Come over here and look at this, will you?

“Sex If You Win, Sex If You Lose”

By Jim Rossignol on March 19th, 2008.


Those seem like reasonable odds, if sadly unrealistic. Anyway, the definitely not-safe-for-office-environs sex-game publisher G-Collections [careful, readers!], has announced that its latest 3D sex adventure on PC, Lightning Warrior Raidy, has gone gold. In fact it seems that Raidy has been presumed to be so popular with G-Collections fans that a sequel has already been announced, even before the first game has gone on sale. Nothing like a dead cert, eh? G-Collections explain the appeal of their cartoon molestations:

With a classic combat feel in the tradition of the finest computer based RPGs, the player navigates the maze-like tower, fighting hordes of sexy monster women and gathering potions, weapons and armor to defeat the tower’s twisted master. With the “sex if you win, sex if you lose” game system, Raidy is able to turn the twisted fetishes of the boss monsters against them if she defeats them in combat, or succumb to their wiles if she loses.

Yeah, you know the system. It’s where you get XP (seXP! sorry) even if you fail the quest. All very familiar RPG stuff. Jolly good, and really in the tradition of the finest computer-based RPGs. Lord British would be proud.
