Xbox 360's 'Mass Effect' banned in Singapore


Okay, we learned something here today. Singapore’s government isn’t down with stuff like a scene in Mass Effect "showing a human woman and an alien woman kissing and caressing each other." Good to know. Good…to…know.

Apparently gamers both locally and internationally are upset by the banning and claim that the government ruling is too strict. Just last month, "Singapore’s parliament decided to keep a ban on sex between men, and Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong said that the city-state should keep its conservative values and not allow special rights for homosexuals."
