    I was checking my miiverse today when right at the top, I was shocked upon discovering a new community for a title called "Bombing Bastards". It's not much more than a Bomberman clone. Surprisingly, despite its name, the game still managed to get by with an E 10+ rating by the ESRB.

    I do have to wonder though, what was Nintendo's thought process when agreeing to allow this game into their wholesome, family friendly library. While The Big N does have titles that contain content suited for more mature gamers, none have foul language actually IN the title. And this is a game intended for ten year olds.

    And I also can't help but imagine how many little kids will undoubtedly get their mouth smacked for asking their parents if they can play Bombing Bastards.

    Way to go Nintendo, you Bastards! :P

    I moved this to GGD. Move it elsewhere if you want.

    Nintoddlers need to grow up.

    Wouldn't it be better suited for WiiU>Games and Content, now that I think about it? How does one "move" a thread?

    Their real mistake was assuming Nintenyearolds could handle a mean word.

    I was thinking the same thing. I can think of another word that would be inappropriate.

    How many 10 year olds do you hear walking around saying it in front of their parents?

    I don't hear any little kids using it, mostly because "faggot" and "fuck" are more in vogue.

    Plus, "bastard" is an actual term, so...

    I was one who used it when I was ten, and I still use it for people who cut me off on the road, As for Nintendo using this word, who cares?

    If the characters, indeed, were conceived out of wedlock then what's the problem?
