    This game looked awesome, but I'm put off by this blurb at the bottom of the Steam page in fine print.

    So I'm not picking it up. )=

    Well not much of a surprise, don't all of ubi's new games have the same thing? In my experience it's really not an issue unless you don't have a permanent connection to the internets, and who doesn't have that these days?

    True.

    Really? I don't see why a kid younger couldn't play this. Do those Tribal Chicks have authentic lack of Tribal Bras?

    From what I understand (prepared to be corrected ;)), the "at least 13 years old" restriction is because in some parts of the US it is illegal to collect personally identifiable information from anyone younger. The actual content being accessed is irrelevant.

    That's correct Jig, the old Macromedia Shockwave (Director) plugin would ask if you were over 13 for the same reason.

    Checkout youtube, lots of clips and a few have commentaries on what is going on.

    Officially released videos that is. ;)
