GROOVY BABY

I always wondered what would happened if a woman played as Talana's captain  Smiley

I'm glad your mom likes blowing stuff up. That's great. Let's continue to spread it around.

The children, let's corrupt some children too. They're into flashing lights and candy, right? That should make it easy.

She's not very far in the game yet. We'll see how it goes.

It's worth pointing out that UQM isn't a player-as-PC game.  There are third-person shots of you (albeit not in the current alpha).  Zelnick is male, even if the player isn't.

Otherwise you can take the Official Line (tm) which was, IIRC, "Dude, wake up and smell the 90s!"

Make sure she won't get to see Talana's scene! She will prohibit you to play the game again!(Mothers + porn = boom )

My mom used to buy my porn. She felt that naked women (tastfully presented) were better for me than people killing each other and blowing up aliens.
Wise woman.

I don't think she will ban anything from me since I'm 19.

But she has always been very 'trustful' about all kinds of games. Even when Doom was released, she was very supportive and let me play it.

Yes, but has she dectected that the character was not a female? I know this sort of discouraged some young women when they got it - just curious about moms.

Yea....right. You all say your moms are cool, let you "read" porn and even buy it. But after all, they are YOUR moms! You won't say anything bad about them even if they are horrible!  Grin

The scene with Talana is hardly PG-13...

If someone considers that to be porn, he/she should get out more...Lots of parents should get out more ;-)
