HotD Swearing Overkill

HotD Swearing Overkill

The House of the Dead: Overkill has set a new record in the Gamer's Edition of the Guinness World Record book.

The on-rails shooter from Sega made it in under the "most swearing in a video game" category, with 189 different uses of the F-word. Gaz Deaves from the GWR commented:

"This record category pre-existed for movies, music and television, but House of the Dead: Overkill is the first video game to be awarded the title in the Gamer's Edition. It's a mark of the times".

The times they were a changin'. The record is expected to stay intact until Singstar: Gangsta Rap is released later this year.

And I thought No More Heroes was bad.

I didn't even know there were 189 different kinds of uses of F-words. Or am I reading that wrong?

Think it just means 189 separate soundclips with some form of F-word included.

Yah this is coming from the same book that gave "Orange Box" an influential award when it really won't be anything in 5 years you'll see. Of course the F-word is overused, SEGA is always tryin' to be adult and Nintendo is trying to be for everyone, narrow-minded GTA PS3 fanboys included.

The overuse of swearing is not trying to be edgy and adult, it's just for comedic effect because the whole game is a parody of old B-movie horror films and they had a lot of swearing in them, but this game exaggerated it so much it's freaking hilarious.
