Singapore lifts 'Mass Effect' ban

Reuters is reporting that the Singaporean government lifted its recent ban on the Xbox 360 game Mass Effect that we told you about this week (twice).

The game will now carry an "M18" label so that only people of legal age can bear witness to a scene containing an alien female and a human female expressing their strong feelings for one another by doing grown-up things like "kissing and caressing."

This action marks the first time that a game in Singapore has been given a rating. Apparently the rating system was supposed to go into place in January but had to be fast-tracked because of all the sloppy Martian love in the back of a dunebuggy.
