Sexy Time! Fear Effect 2

[Sexy Time! is a new regular series on Destructoid where we take a look at some of the more, shall we say, erotic aspects of video games. It also gives us a reason to post images such as the above. You're welcome.]

The Fear Effect series of survival horror games were creepy as hell. They were also sexy as hell, with main character Hana rocking curves that the PlayStation was incapable of really producing graphically. At the time of its release, Kronos Digital also attempted to entice audiences to Fear Effect 2: Retro Helix with a little girl-on-girl action.

Think of it like Ellen Degeneris' character coming out on that sitcom she had. Except, you know, it's really hot and doesn't involve Ellen Degeneris. Or it could be that because it did not involve Ellen that it's sexy. I'm having a hard time imagining her in any sort of sexual conduct, now that I think about it.

Anyway, hit the jump and we'll look at something titillating.

Needing to create a distraction while they retreive a necessary item hidden above an elevator, Hana and Rain put on a little show for security officers watching on a surveillance camera. Using her feminine wiles and the only garment she seems to be wearing, Hana covers up their viewpoint. Loathe to interrupt the pair lest the dress fall from the camera during their passionate lovemaking, the security guards opt to spend their time panting at a black screen while Hana and Rain make off with the goods.

What's so hot about this scene is the utter disregard for the mission that Hana displays, suggesting that the plan was just as much an opportunity to get up -- throught the elevator's escape hatch, that is -- as it was to get down. The deadpan delivery and quizzical expression from Hana serves to heighten the anticipation right up until the very point at which we see her emerge through the hatch.

Hana's homosexual attitudes in Fear Effect 2 raised a fair bit of controversy at the time, with some groups shocked at the flagrant sexuality on display while others simply hoped they'd get a little more action out of Hana. Sadly, the latter would wind up the more disappointed. A third game in the series, Fear Effect Inferno, was planned for a 2003 release on the PlayStation 2 but shelved due to increasing financial concerns at Eidos.

All I have to say is that the time may be ripe for Eidos to revive the franchise. With the way the survival horror genre has changed over the last few years, it would be interesting to see a game like Fear Effect with its more traditional gameplay elements and creative ideas come back into gaming. Besides, horror and sex go hand in hand and it only makes sense that this be reflected more in our games.

Just so you know, I've been a Huge subscriber for a few years but I thought I had until the end of September to cancel it. So I've opened an inquiry for the refund, which is on tinypass' end of things by the way.

I once posted that Total Recall was the best movie ever made. I would like to make note that Starship Troopers is a close second. Carry on.

One glorious Japanese twitter user made a custom LBX of one of my favorite Kamen Riders: [img]http://i.imgur.com/yp1oraHm.jpg[/img] It's like getting peanut butter in chocolate but with small robots and spandex banana men!

I'm dragging myself away from my PS4 long enough to say that MGS V is pretty darn awesome so far.

MGSV: Sneaking into a heavily guarded Russian military base in Afghanistan at night, slashing throats while listening to this. [youtube]https://youtu.be/-hWZqllm3mQ[/youtube] Comes off like a perfectly planned scene in a Scorsese movie or something.

I'm ok with Namco shutting down Soul Calibur: Lost Souls, as long as they keep Ace Combat:Infinity running. Love that game and just hit 3 million credits.

Holy fuck I feel new again. I've been on hiatus for a while and haven't been up to writing. I might just jump back into things after I relearn things here. Does anyone even remember me? Like damn it's been a while.

Wow, it's really easy to get people upset over video games.

I hope MGS V is living up to everyone's expectations. I can't get enough.

I dislike the idea of intentionally reinforcing the notions that either race or gender are character traits, and those that don't match your own are completely unrelatable.

I'm ok if someone chooses a character's ethnicity in a story with the intent of being more representative, as long as the story is good. And if even SOME people feel like it helps them relate, then good! Don't bother me none.

OK. So the Mad Max game is basically the combat from the Batman games, the driving bits from Rage and the taking over the outposts bits from Far Cry 3 and 4. I guess what I'm saying is that it's super fun and I'm really, really enjoying it.
