Chalk this one down in the puerile and bizarre category, THQ’s upcoming embarrassment-a-thon, Truth Or Lies, has been just rated “Teen” by the ESRB. And rightly so. A round-table quiz-fest akin to Buzz!, instead of innocent trivia questions, however, Truth Or Lies will ask such prodding queries as: “Would you rather have marathon sex or sprint sex?”
Using a microphone, the game will even ‘detect’ if you’re lying. And if the 3,000 questions aren’t enough to have you squirming for the door, players can put each other on “the hot seat” and ask anything they so wish. Like, “Why did you buy this game and why did you make us play it?”
The ESRB calls out a whole rash of obscenities in the game including, but not limited to, “humidifiers full of urine”, “an avalanche of doggy poo,” and “dry heave or juicy fart?” The game also wants to know if you’d body slam your Mom for $30,000 (Yes.) There are also numerous drug references, more sexual content than in an average Charlie Sheen subpoena, and bad language such as “ass” and “hell.” Kind of expected when you’re getting asked about your parents’ sex tape.
