Here’s something no one asked for that doesn’t play games in VR: first-person sex scenes. Well, CD Projekt Red will be delivering those scenes to gamers in Cyberpunk 2077 with full-on mo-capped sequences.
PC Gamer is reporting that during a Q&A panel session that took place in Warsaw, Poland, they talked a little bit about the first-person sex…
“CD Projekt has previously said that they’ll be seen from the first-person perspective, as will all other cutscenes in the game, in order to avoid breaking immersion. During the Q&A, the studio said that it’s also done “a lot of mocap” for the sex scenes, which should be interesting. I’m really not sure how the developers are going to combine motion-captured FPS—that’s First Person Sex, by the way—without setting off AO alarms at the ESRB, but if nothing else it emphasizes that CD Projekt isn’t going to dodge the naughty bits with tasteful, strategic fadeouts.”
This instantly reminds me of when BioWare was bragging about their “softcore porn” sex scenes from Mass Effect: Andromeda, which resulted in more people being confused than turned on by the odd mish-mash of polygonal grinding and straddling.
The company has been adamant about the inclusion of gay sex, as reported by HITC. You’ll be able to have one night stands, too. So does this mean if you’re gay you’re going to see your ‘V’ go down and suckle on some strange man’s salami? Or will they simply cut to some buff dude slinking down ‘V’s torso and making lots of annoying sucking sounds as he polishes your character’s 3D knob?
Worse yet, will you have to see the characters doing it doggy-style from first-person view? Rocking motions and heads bobbing while listening to the coconuts on the trees smack against each other? Or will it just be ‘V’ starring off the edge of the bed, grimacing and groaning while you hear some hairy dude from behind smacking the side of ‘V’s bare buttocks?
And what about for the ladies? Are they really going to animate first-person tossed salad? Will we see cream being licked out of a donut?
Anytime mainstream games not explicitly designed around sex simulation talk about sex scenes I can’t help but cringe at how badly the whole thing will be handled.
It was all tastefully done in the first Mass Effect (or about as tasteful as the technical limitations would allow), but most sex scenes in most games include a lot of awkward angles and conveniently placed objects to censor the anatomically incorrect models.
I guess it doesn’t matter anyway given that Cyberpunk 2077 isn’t made for people like you and I, and so all the blue-pilled normies out there looking forward to the alphabet-approved propaganda can get their fill when the game launches on April 16th, 2020 on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
