[Industry] Take Two Strikes Out Again

So, let me see if I've got this right. Take Two first drives game ratings into the spotlight with hidden sexual content in "Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas." Then, about a year later, they do it again with "The Elder Scrolls: Oblivion?" And now Bethesda is using the same excuse that Rockstar did, saying that without using a mod, the content couldn't be accessed.

Ahem.

The ESRB has been telling people since last year that they were going to be rating everything on the disc, whether it could be accessed during gameplay normally or not. When in doubt, disclose, edit or remove. That's it. There are no other choices. Blocking off or covering up used to be a viable strategy, but it isn't anymore.

Bah...I don't have the energy right now to worry about this shit...
