Tecmo, the company who makes such classics as “Dead Or Alive: Extreme Beach Volleyball“, a gameplay-free excuse to display hi-res moving images of scantily-clad women, has sued a modding community for messing with its games.
“Most of the skins posted on the Message Board by defendants show Tecmo Characters with appearances that are different from the original Tecmo designs,” the complaint notes. “Several… are designed to make Tecmo Characters appear naked.”
Oh, the horror! How could evil hackers do such a thing to a family company like Tecmo?
“Hackers, if they’re allowed to do this kind of thing, will be allowed to hack into any game, anywhere,” [a spokeswoman] warns. “We spent millions of dollars to develop these games, and people are coming in and changing the code to their liking, and that’s illegal.”
Absolutely. If gamers start changing games so they like them more, where would it all end? I mean, you might end up with software that anyone could change for any purpose, without asking anyone’s permission! What sort of world would that be?
Some further research reveals some unintentionally hilarious message board posts from around the time of the game’s release. Feel the indignation!
Hollywood Video actually lists this as an adult game because of the supposed nudity, so I rented it and I couldn’t wait to see the girls topless. I was totally looking forward to the “nudity” that was described on the box. After playing for about 2 hours straight I realized that there was none!
“…I want my money back!”
All I know is that in Xbox Mag (XXXbox issue) they stated that you would be able to “win” or “buy” topless mode. And just to be fair…I paid fifty bucks, so I deserve me some ***s!
(Censorship his, not mine.)
