    Tags: Brenda Brathwaite; Dungeons & Dragons: Heroes; Matt Barton; Playboy: The Mansion

    In the latest episode of Matt Barton's interview with Brenda Romero, Brenda moves on to discussing her career post-Sir-Tech. The first 12 minutes or so are dedicated to two of her games from that period - the little-known D&D-themed console-based action RPG Dungeons & Dragons: Heroes and the vaguely notorious Sims clone Playboy: The Mansion. Her description of the latter title segues into an extended discussion of the topic of sex and violence in video games, which occupies the other 20 minutes of the episode.


    Not very interesting, really. Come on Matt, ask her about Druid or Nemesis or Shaker or something.

    Not much DRAMA you mean, but I found it interesting, especially the story behind D&D: Heroes.

    Yes, going from pure mindless action game to action-RPG in three months is pretty impressive.

    The interview is ready for weeks now, he can't ask about anything new. He is just putting up a segment every week.

    A nerd grabbing the chance to talk about sex with a female. All from the safety of his own room and through an internet connection. Ofcourse he took it.

    The interview might be mildly interesting if it would end like a porno version of the 'Lady and the Tramp'.

    what she said about tech and sex is actually hilariously interesting. basically, if you think about it, the "prudes" are always the first ones thinking about sex. when other people are thinking up of tech, the "prudes" are sitting there thinking "how can i use this for sex? I mean...how can other people use this for sex?"

    When truly desperate for attention, try doing a HoloCo$t™ game. It assures that no matter how mediocre you may be you will still be lauded as a politically-safe Bolshevist-sanitized certified-kosher "jeenius©" by some concernfag organisation and given some funding to continue your truly interesting investigation into the subject ...

    ...WHICH NEVER GETS OLD

    (I predict her 10+ million dead Ukrainian-famine game based on the Holodomor in the Soviet Union may be in the planning stages for a couple of thousand years because the people genocided are not a socially sanctioned approved victim group. Follow the money.)

    I love Western society where people with IQs slightly above average can earn the "genius" tag for just being conformist lickspittles but here in Australia we have a guy named Jim Penman with an IQ over 200+ who mows lawns for a living. No soup for you real genius.

    It seems his IQ is not high enough to put that intelligence into good use. AKA IQ is not everything.

    Cleve is exaggerating. Jim started a lawnmower business to pay his way through his PhD and turned it into a franchise raking in 320 million dollars a year. He's successful by any measure.

    I just read the article. I can see why Cleve likes him.

    Yeah, it is less of an exaggeration and more of a misinformation.

    If your little children are playing games about sex, you pretty much suck as a parent. Which is not surprising, really.

    Show Spoiler
    Or they are just little bastards, trying to get their grubby mitts on anything sex related, like we all were. In this age, when the net is full of free pornography, the hooker scene in LSL is the least of your problems, really. In any case, what your children are playing is your responsibility, not Brenda's


    3/10 made me answer

    Video games are for children or overgrown children, they shouldn't contain obscene content, and no obscenity isn't "speech".

    As an overgrown child I have little sympathy for the little buggers.
