But now that the embargo for reviews has just lifted here's ours , we're able to report for the first time that GTA IV: The Lost and Damned - the first of two downloadable episodic expansions to last year's phenomenal Grand Theft Auto IV - contains a scene of full frontal male nudity. It's the first time we've ever seen a fully realistic 3D penis, complete with pubic bush. And in our review, we describe it as the most alarming scene in the entire Grand Theft Auto saga to date - not because it's as 'extreme' as some of the violence and torture on show in the game, but because it's just so completely unexpected, and bound to cause some sort of outcry in the vein of San Andreas ' "Hot Coffee". The scene, which players will encounter about a third of the way into the game's substantial hour-plus story, sees protagonist Johnny Klebitz' first encounter with a new character, Congressman Thomas Stubbs. Stubbs has just received a back massage from an unknown lady, and goes about discussing business with Johnny entirely in the nude. What makes it so surprising is that throughout the scene, nothing is seen for the most part, so it's just Rockstar's typical dry sense of humour; its loves flirting with controversy, and that comes across in all but the briefest glimpses of just the top of Stubbs' pubic region. And then, right at the end of the scene, BANG: Rockstar stops 'flirting' with controversy and gives it a full on facial. If Rockstar's intention was to shock - if only because of the shitstorm it may well bring about - then it has succeeded. But it also 'fits well' with the game's entire daring and 'ballsy' attitude.

Now, before any of you guys get too excited, the full frontal might not be exactly what you had in mind. In other words, no, it is not of a woman, it is indeed a full frontal of a man who looks to be middle aged. Here is the link to the full clip, please note that male nudity is generally not safe for work. There are obviously a few spoilers in the clip as well, so you have been warned. Sir Alistair Hammerlock and Wainwright Jakobs are finally tying the knot, and they want yo…. The Tranya Rimor are wireless earbuds that truly are for audiophiles on a budget. While its light on features and has a fair share of issues, the level of audio quality you are getting for the price is remarkable. I never get tired of that joke or being able to deliver disappointment so early in the week. A couple of weeks back we got the chance to give away one of the superb Cable Guy Claptrap figures courtesy of the fine folks over at GameFinity and Koodoo.

Kikizo reveals: "Shock scene appears in the downloadable episode, released tomorrow on Xbox Live. This isn't going to go down well with the cry-babies who made the 'Hot Coffee' incident into such a scandal. With their never-ending passion to create controversy within the gaming industry. Never fails! This is just reDICKulous. Why not a nice rack?
Spoiler alert! If you're going to play Grand Theft Auto IV: The Lost and Damned and find digitally rendered flaccid penises offensive, you may want to avert your sensitive eyes during one in-game cinematic. Rockstar Games, no stranger to controversy as marketing tool, will likely come under fire for its inclusion of completely uncensored, full frontal male nudity in The Lost and Damned , giving us our very first glimpse of digital dick on the Xbox To say it was a surprise would be an understatement, as the scene in question is expert at providing flirtatious glimpses of one character's fleshy business, only to give Congressman Thomas Stubbs' junk plenty of screen time. Stubbs, in his first meeting with lead character Johnny Klebbitz, is receiving a massage at the private gentleman's club Jousters when we meet him. The Congressman, dressed in nothing but a towel, quickly becomes pretty comfortable with his new biker friend, choosing to deliver his monologue in the buff. While Rockstar's cinematics director teases the player with mere glimpses of Mr.
