ESRB confirms robot copulation for Fallout: New Vegas

It's likely you wanted Fallout: New Vegas before, but thanks to a recent reveal on behalf of the ESRB, it's become a game you simply can't pass up. Well, particularly if you've got a thing for robots.

According to the description, "sexual activity with a robot" is suggested, but (unfortunately?) not depicted. Dialogue like "Something wrong with someone if they got to f**k a machine" indicate that the mechanical intercourse is frowned upon by some New Vegas denizens.

"Fisto reporting for duty," says one willing robotic participant. "Please assume the position."

Throw in your standard Fallout violent and gore (chainsaws! laser rifles!) and drugs, and you've got yourself an M rating. Fallout: New Vegas is out on October 19 in North America and October 22 in Europe.

This is an action role-playing game, set in a post-apocalyptic Mojave Desert, in which players assume the role of a survivor hero who investigates a mystery and performs a series of quests. Missions allow players to explore the Mojave Desert, surrounding casinos, and abandoned facilities; other quests involve combat with human and mutant survivors. Players use chainsaws, laser rifles, knives, and sledgehammers to kill enemies. Fighting can be frenetic and intense, highlighted by various camera effects (e.g., slow motion, blurring, screen shakes) and depictions of dismemberment, blood spray, and blood trails. In one sequence, players can choose to activate a collar bomb around a slave-woman's neck, resulting in depictions of blood and gore. During the course of the game, players will encounter male and female prostitutes: the screen fades to black as suggestive dialogue is heard in the background (e.g., "Nice charlies, too! Give them a shake for the Ben-man, will ya?"); there is also an extended sequence suggesting (no depiction) sexual activity with a robot (e.g., "Fisto reporting for duty . . . Please assume the position," "I suppose I should test you out . . . Servos active!" and "Something wrong with someone if they got to f**k a machine."). The storyline sometimes references a fictional drug called "chems," as well as "Day Trippers," "cracked out junkies," and "degenerate, drug-addicted killers." Players' Character can be seen consuming the drugs, which sometimes leads to a screen-blurring effect.
