There was a large stir yesterday and the day before about some nudity that had worked its way into the Halo 2 port for Vista. Itâ€™s not a big deal; itâ€™s even less of a big deal now that we know what it is. What is it you might ask, read the rest of the article and let me tell you right now, it sure is something, what Iâ€™m not sure but itâ€™s something all right.
It seems as I was right, it was a developer having some fun but itâ€™s not even in the game. What you get when a particular error occurs is this coder mooning users. Thatâ€™s right, he moons users as in pulls down his pants and shakes his hindquarter at you. Isnâ€™t that just lovely, to me itâ€™s actually kind of sick and disturbing but whatever.
The ESRB (Entertainment Software Rating Board) was making a big stink over this before we really knew what it was. Now that we know, itâ€™s just stupid. Itâ€™s not even something most people will ever be able to see. The ESRB was doing its job but come on guys, get a life, how long did that take to find anyway?
I mean, if itâ€™s not actually in the game then it doesnâ€™t count and this doesnâ€™t count, not at all. Now, if it were Cortana in human form naked then yeah, thatâ€™d be kind of a big deal some would want to patch it and some would want to see it but I can honestly say that no one wants to see the rear end of one of the alleged developers.
I dearly hope itâ€™s not actually called the â€œ.ASS errorâ€ as Kotaku (image included) is making it out to be. There is no doubt in my mind these versions of Halo 2 will end up as collectors items on eBay. Such is the world.
I too have my misgivings about Kotaku but this does indeed appear to be the truth and this friends, is what delayed the game, now all we need is some good old fashioned CSI work to figure out who that person is and make his existence miserable for delaying the best game ever. I did not play Halo 2 on the XBOX and I am probably one of the few eagerly awaiting the Vista release.
