Coffee Talk w/ Rockstar

By Steve Gibson, Jul 13, 2005 9:58am PDT The latest controversy surrounding GTA titles has been the alleged porn mini-game hidden within San Andreas. Screenshots surfaces a while ago of the Playstation2 version but the real stink started just recently when a mod was released for the PC build so that anyone could get to it. A 'nationwide parental alert' was issued. Now Rockstar Games is making statements:

"So far we have learned that the "hot coffee" modification is the work of a determined group of hackers who have gone to significant trouble to alter scenes in the official version of the game," reads the statement. "In violation of the software user agreement, hackers created the 'hot coffee' modification by disassembling and then combining, recompiling and altering the game's source code. Since the 'hot coffee' scenes cannot be created without intentional and significant technical modifications and reverse engineering of the game's source code, we are currently investigating ways that we can increase the security protection of the source code and prevent the game from being altered by the 'hot coffee' modification."

The modder states that he added nothing to the game when releasing the mod and that all the content was there by Rockstar - "If Rockstar Games denies that, then they're lying, and I will be able to prove that," said Wildenborg, a mod author, in an e-mail to The Associated Press.

  • "While the game is rated M, and therefore not readily sold to those below the age of 17, the mod is easily available online."

    That is the basis of Hilary Clinton's arguement. "THE MOD IS AVAILABLE TO THE CHILDREN! OMG!" Well wait, can't play the mod...without the game! I don't understand why nobody can get it through their THICK SKULLS that Mature means Mature, over 18, not kiddy. Parents just buy their kids everything and then get mad and blame the media/government/game designers when they catch their kid doing something bad. "I caught my innocent Johnny urinating on burning corpses of people he beheaded with shovels in Postal 2, that was alright. Then I caught him having sex with an actual woman in GTA, OMG! NATIONAL PARENTAL ALERT!" If this actually gets anywhere in the courts, I'm moving to Canada. Seriously.

  • seems that Rockstar should use the same pair of balls they used when they developed the game to defend themselves and the community instead of caving in and putting blame in an attempt to make themselves look like the victim of all this since there is really no victim in all this shit at all...

    like its been said many times, this is a mature game and it has a mature rating that clearly explains that the game has mature content, like sex and/or violence, and no minor has any kind what-so-ever of business playing this game in the first place, even if this "coffe mod" never existed at all, so all this shit should be a non issue, there is no need really to say anything else about this, or like Rockstar did, say something else to make themselves look like if they didnt knew that this could happen...

    and for fuck sakes, the fucking sex taboo in America should die already, every fucking one does it and likes it, so wtf...

  • Nothing like the free world, where laws are used to twist the reality and theirby forcing reality to twist and turn as well...

    Only an incredible stupid man (or politician) would actually consider this game a problem. Here is a reality tip for that stupid guy, pull the plug on the internet or start dealing with the harsh reality that is the real world (as seen on Google)

    Normal sex is dead, welcome to sex "as seen on the internet", yes, you are supposed to pull out the dick and "cum in her face" it's the way nature wants it.

    Anal sex is the norm, it's how "everybody else" does, i've seen it myself.

    Eat shit and drink piss, it's the only way!

    Commercials for condoms results in more sex, ban the commercials and enjoy AIDS instead.

    Sorry for rambling, it's just so stupid :-(
