Sexy Time! Fear Effect 2

7:20 PM on 05.18.2009 // Conrad Zimmerman

[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.

GUYS HELP I KEEP BUYING MORE AMIIBO. Today it was Little Mac, since he went back up on Gamestop's website. I probably would have gotten Captain Falcon as well if I wasn't already running a little short on cash.

50 hours in and I can safely say that Xenoblade is the best JRPG I've played in years. Should hopefully be finished in time for X too!

I have 34 games in my Steam queue alone, 4 on xbone, and a handful on handhelds. I have 3 days to make a dent. Time's up, let's do this!

Community Question: To make up for yesterday, I decided to ask a second Community Question today. Have you taken advantage of any Black Friday deals today? If so, what did you purchase? Feel free to share pictures of your spoils, if you have any.

Black Friday is getting to me. All these games I kinda, maybe want that are at anywhere between respectable and deep discounts, but I'm not sure if I want to bite. I'm wondering if Godzilla's worth $12? After checking review scores, I'm not sure.

Black Friday slowly seems to creep its way onto Continental Europe, but I'm not complaining! I managed to get my grubby little paws on a new physical copy of The Wonderful 101 for €20! Thanks, America!

Community Question: Since I missed yesterday, I am going to do something a little different today. Are there any questions you would like to ask me for a change? If so, please feel free. I may add a second Community Question later today, as well.

While partially responsible for one of the biggest jokes in the metal, Cold Lake by Celtic Frost, Curt Bryant is doing the soundtrack to the game Slain!. I'm digging the shitty garage band vibe.

Got DeSu2 Break Record from GS' Black Friday sale ($29.99). Love the Arrange CD. It's been far too long since I heard Meguro do something that wasn't tied to Persona. Also grabbed an extra copy of Freedom Wars since they were $5.
