So… some mischievous hacker dug waaaay the hell into their PS3 copy of Mortal Kombat last week, and lo and behold, a wealth of ridiculous information came to light. On-disc DLC, alternate costumes, and other potential modern day controversies were allegedly revealed. However, we were far more fascinated by the list of words, as in text, banned from being used by players in the game. Join us as we read through several dozen salty-tongued highlights of extremely foul irony in TalkRadar 148! NSFW, provided your ears share an office.
Above: Decapitations? All good. The words "drug," "boner," or "sega?" BANNED!
Mortal Kombat, a series renowned for over-the-top depictions of brutality and one time poster boy for gaming’s anti-censorship debate, has a list of text it considers too gosh darn naughty for gamers to direct at one another while tearing each other’s heads off?! Overlooking the irony, what’s even more outstanding is the thoroughness of the list of words. TWENTY FOUR PAGES worth of some of the wildest racial slurs, innuendo, and profanity you have (and have never) heard! FYI There’s more profanity in the full episode!
