It's been ages since we had a good ESRB rating story, but America's guardians have delivered the goods once more. As usual, we've got a rating for an M-rated game and, as usual, it makes said game sound delightful ... in a kind of psychopathic way. So, how will Resident Evil 6 traumatize us?
"Battles contain realistic gunfire, screams of pain, and exaggerated blood splatter effects; some attacks result in dismemberment or decapitation (e.g., slowly inserting a monster's body into a rotating fan blade)," reads the squicky summary. "Cutscenes also depict intense acts of violence: a zombie getting stabbed in the head; characters getting pummeled/impaled by monsters."
That's not all! Read on below for the (spoiler-ish) reveal of a previously unknown boss. It involves spiders getting sexy, because that's not horrifying in any way!
"One female boss character (a human-spider hybrid) is depicted nude -- though without any discernible details (i.e., no nipples or genitalia); during one attack move, she briefly caresses her breasts while straddling on players' character. The words 'f**k' and 'sh*t' can be heard in the dialogue."
Fantastic! Sex and every single nightmare you've ever had -- together at last!
