    I saw this at Gamespot (and somewhere else a while ago) and it's the next installment of Dave Mirra without Dave Mirra or any other 'real' riders. I'm not too sure how nudity and profanity fit into a game like this. Don't get me wrong I can appreciate mature games (still playing through GTA3 and Eternal Darkness) but this seems like a gimmick.

    Looks like Dave Mirra has been dropped from the title, and it's just a generic BMX game with a heavy dose of nudity and profanity. Personally, I'll probably rent it for the novelty factor, but I'm not exactly expecting a Tony Hawk killer. [​IMG]

    This game was supposed to have Dave Mirra and other riders in it but they dropped out of it. Probably to avoid any controversy. They will be in Dave Mirra 3 which comes out a few months after the newly titled BMX XXX. I've heard that BMX XXX will be a much faster paced game than Dave Mirra 3. Also, the contoversial stuff is done mostly for a comedic effect. The soundtrack is also supposed to contain profanity. There will be strippers but the furthest they go is taking their tops off. You will also be able to create a nude rider. They're using the controversial stuff to sell the game but it sounds like it will be the best BMX entry to date. It could be a great game even without the nudity and profanity.

    I'm very glad that they are separating the Dave Mirra franchise from this. I'll definitely get the next Mirra, but the XXX game will only get a rental (unless it somehow turns out fantastic). The concept just seems ... desperate. Like a ten year old cussing in an effort to sound all grown up.

    What... the... F*ck?

    how does nudity fit into a BMX game.. I agree, this just seems desperate. People complained about gore in Soldier of Fortune, saying it was just a gimmick. You want gimmick? NUDITY IN A BMX game, now THATS a gimmick.

    It's not just nudity. In the Bronx level, you see pimps walking around and people will swear at you. In the LA and Bronx levels, there are strip clubs with strippers.

    Yeah, this game is either a desperate "we can do it, too!" in reaction to mature games like GTA3 or it's just some sort of attempt to do something new. Either way, it's dumb and pointless.

    This game is all about crude humor and its trying to do what GTA3 did. This game sounds like it could be fun in comparison to other BMX games.

    I just think it is an attempt by acclaim to sell games because they have been lacking lately. I am really down on them anymore. They can't make a decent game to save their lives. Acclaim sucks. Turok evolution will be crap.

    turok, allstar, aggresive inline, and bmxxx should help keep acclaim afloat for a while

    you guys may complaining about nudity. but i bet there are a LOT of people out there who may buy the game for the "novelty" alone.

    you cant blame the game dev team for that. they have to make games that sell.
