I hope, like the first one, Larian won't have swearing (like the s-word and f-bomb) and nudity, otherwise I cannot play it. I plan on backing this game for $50 when Larian starts accepting PayPal. I'm pretty excited about this!
I have never been able to empathise with the hysterically obtuse sensibilities of certain people who are intimidated/outraged/offended by words, nudity or aspects of "the real world" that they just find disagreeable.
Why is it that this abhorrent demographic insists on others kowtowing to their sensibilities?
As a gay person I'm constantly frustrated by members of my own demographic rushing to the fore, shouting loudly about how other people may use words like "gay", "fag" or the countless other expressions despite them being meaningless without a cruel intention behind them.
This frustration applies in equal measure to other vulnerable demographics who seem emotionally incapable of separating words from the intent behind them--granting meaningless garbage power over their lives, their feelings and their perceptions.
So when I come across an asinine post about "swearing" or "nudity" in the hope of censoring such expressions for others, I can't help but cringe at how utterly petty people are and how desperate they are to both play the victim and stand on their street corner loudly proclaiming their offense.
To quote one of my all-time favourite souls:
It's no doubt unfortunate for you that you don't live in a heavily padded sanitised pocket that caters to your every whim, wont and tender emotion, but life is a grand, wonderful stage full of vibrant colours and expressions. Being intimidated by words only ever serves to narrow your appreciation for it all and increase your intolerance of other people, societies and cultures that don't resonate your own self-righteous and hyper-inflated sensibilities.
