So, Friday the 13th, we love it, obviously if we didn't we wouldn't be here.
But one of the things that I was considering the other day while hyping this game up to a friend of mine, is the topic of Sex in the context of F13.
Sex, Drugs, Rock and Roll, those things are totally important to the franchise. Just as much as the slaughter our favorite maniac dishes out, but there's some considerations that I'm just a bit concerned about, especially in the sex aspect.
Now we know Sex will be part of the game, devs have said it's an option before [likely to provide buffs to the players who engaged in it, and as a call to action for Jason]. But how deep does this go?
Don't get me wrong, I'm not asking about how porntastic things will be, because obviously it won't be super graphic [we ARE still shooting for an M rating, not AO.] but in 2016/2017 [even in a game taking place in the 80's] I'm curious about representation, primarily of the GLBT variety.
Now I'm not asking for trans characters, since Trans was kinda...well not exactly very common in the 80's[at least not in representation]... but let's be real, at the very least the GLB part of GLBT was still pretty much rockin even back then. And while we don't really see it in any of the films, I was curious if the devs had even considered Same Sex sexual encounters.
I'd assume, for the event to trigger in the first place, to players would have to be in the same cabin or near the same object, and essentially queue into the action, meaning it would have to be consensual for both players [a button prompt: Press X to agree to sex.] which would set the animation into motion.
Since that's likely how it's set up, I'm wondering if the devs considered allowing two male, or two female characters to interact through this prompt.
Now I know for some this is a bit of a controversial topic. And homosexuality tends to be the butt of some horror jokes [just look at A Nightmare on Elm St. 2.] But in 2016/2017, in an age where we have same sex romance options in various games like Mass Effect and Skyrim and the like. Are we going to keep on that bleeding edge, or are we going to revert entirely to the 80's level of no overt representation [which would personally, be a shame, since it would likely take two consenting players to even start the option.]
I'd just like the community, and developer's thoughts on this, if possible.
On another note... has anything been discussed about recreational drug use in game?
