    Gamestop Italy is offering a rather interesting pre-order bonus for inFamous: Second Son - one that will help gamers avoid having a second son... or a first one... or a daughter, for that matter.​
    The Pre-Order Edition of Sucker Punch's new game contains two cans of Red Bull to keep the players pumped for action... and a pack of fluorescent condoms in case the tension turns out to be too much for them to handle and some form of venting with their significant others will be required. "A fill of energy for an explosion of pleasure!" - boldly claims the box. "Enjoy your power!" - I'm sure we will! All the fans with the right "equipment" should look forward to showing off their... inFamous... glow-in-the-dark... uhm... "superpowers". :creep:
    Eurogamer reached out to SCEE for a comment - I'm sure it's going to be an interesting one.​

    Yes.
    They should include some pills that'd make your sperm fluorescent, imagine the possibilities then :d


    I know it doesn't work like that

    I'm a little disappointed that it's not 2 baby boys, so you then have 2 sons.

    Pretty sure being a gamer is enough birth control you'll ever need.




    Well it's rated M so I'm pretty sure they should have braced for mature content.

    This thread is going so far in to the EoF that I'm a bit disappointed. Keep it coming :creep:

    As for the news.. I'd be interested in seeing a custom PS4 controller for the game (red/blue)

    Okay...so when rockstar games removes a 'hot chocolate' minigame from the main game but makes it unlockable to those knowing what they're doing, all hell breaks loose. But when sucker punch puts a pack of condoms in addition to the box, it's okay? :unsure:


    Honestly: I don't get it. Why condoms? Not only is it in no way related to the game but it also distracts from the gaming in the most literal sense possible. In fact: it puts you in a direct dilemma...try out the game or the glowing condoms? Wait...did I say dilemma? Either you don't have the choice by lack of either a PS4 or a willing girlfriend, or you do have the choice and you'll go with the other. Or indeed: you go to those nice ladies. But apart from a few very rare instances*, it just doesn't mix.

    So...why? Should there be some kind of reference in the game or something? Fuck...as I just found out, the game doesn't even have co-op. So aside from easily being able to jerk off in admiration of the awesome graphics of today's gaming**, I don't see the purpose. And I don't think THAT was the intention of including a condom. Let alone a whole box.

    *okay, okay: I've got to admit it: I have the mental image of an Italian whore sitting in a window next to a PS4. You just KNOW she'll get this kind of clients
    **I already feel sorry for whichever actress(es) had to voice the caricatural hot babe(s) in this game. :(
    Wait...what? Significant others? Erm...yeah. Look. I'm all about safe sex, so perhaps I shouldn't say this (especially with an audience who snorts at anything sex-related), but I'm going to do it anyway...

    Fucking with a condom isn't fun. It doesn't matter if it has a nice taste, glows in the dark or makes the sounds of a Philharmonic Orchestra. At best, those things don't ruin the experience. But to me, they feel like masturbating in a plastic bag. Now...Since diseases and birth control are real threats, condoms certainly have a right of existence, and should be used appropriately during the dating phase. They're what I would call "a necessary evil".

    But when I'm having a monogamous relationship with someone who is healthy and is certain she's not in that "I may get pregnant"-period, condoms are the first thing to go. And it's only some steps AFTER that, that I'll start referring to this woman as being my "significant other".
    So...no. Call it like it is. Those glowing condoms could be convenient when picking up chicks, visiting a brothel or hanging out at a comic convention. But unless you're the kind of guy who refers to his one night stand as being your "significant other", I really don't see how that works.

    Yeah, good luck using a calendar, a thermometer or analyzing the thickness of bodily fluids as means of contraception - do invite me to your baby shower please. :rolleyes:

    If you really want to be safe with your significant other, there's a variety of things you could do, but not doing anything is probably the worst advice you could give to anyone. There's implants, but those are invasive and quite expensive. Globules and sprays are useless on their own and should only be used in conjunction with a physical barrier method. Pills are very effective, but they're not particularly healthy and they screw with a girl's head and metabolism - we're talking severe depression, mood swings and body weight gain if the mix isn't "right" for her, so it takes a while to pick the "right" ones - they're the best method out there, but also the trickiest one which has to be consulted with a GP. Condoms are a good solution, but latex isn't really comfortable and some people are allergic to it, which is why I strongly recommend using polyurethane ones like Mates SKYN. Believe it or not, their tagline rings true, they really are the closest thing to wearing nothing.

    tl;dr Going nuts with no protection whatsoever equals incoming pregnancy, sooner or later, fact.

    Wasn't aware it was M, assumed it was t like it's predecessors. Either way, that doesn't seem to make a difference for a number of parents, and they'd still flip over it because they are too stupid to see what they are buying their children lol
