Dreams Can Come True: Bully 360 Gets Boy Kissing Achievement

boyskissbully.jpg

Ever since Bully: Scholarship Edition was announced for the Xbox 360 I have been very vocal about my desire for the inclusion of an achievement for kissing boys. I've written about it both here and on Kotaku at various times. Well apparently someone at Rockstar Games heard me (or at least I like to think they did). IGN has posted the list of achievements and the fourth on the list is "Over the Rainbow" which will net you twenty achievement points for kissing twenty boys. Thank you, Rockstar Games. GayGamer will be officially erecting a Jimmy Hopkins statue in the castle gardens. Construction begins immediately.

[Thanks, Scotty]

Simply amazing. [golf clap]

I know I shouldn't say that this is going to be the only reason for me to buy the game, but I think it just pushed me over the edge from "maybe" to "definite purchase."

Zodiac said:

I think I might be picking this up now. I didn't get it for PS2 and the boys kissing achievement is great.

Peter said:

i wonder what would those anti-gay players, you know, the ones that call everyone gay (or worse) do now?

"Should i skip the achievement or risk turning gay for playing a boy-kiss-boy game?"

Very glad they left this in - I sort of thought they might gut this feature for the re-releases (I'm picking up the Wii version) and am happy to see they left it in!

Let the kissing commence.

Fyfe said:

Since only the XBOX360 version gets the nifty achievements, does that mean that the Wii Jimmy will have to kiss boys for free?

This from the same company that has homophobic Fudge Packing company signs in at least one of their GTA games? Bravo. /sarcasm.

I just started playing Bully on my ps2. It sure brings back wistful memories of boys I wished I'd kissed, or beaten up, or both, when I was in high school. [sigh]

I thought I could only kiss 5 boys - one in each clique. Can you kiss more? What's the secret? Or is that only in the Scholarship Edition?

Like any red-blooded American, I think 20 is better than 5. Maybe we need a "How to kiss boys in Bully 102" seminar to expand on these topics.

Thanks Fruit Brute!

Keith said:

If I remember correctly, there was only one boy in the original game that you could kiss. Did they make it so that any (or at least more than one) boy can be kissed? Or do you have to kiss that same boy twenty times to get the achievement?

purplerose said:

Exian is right, it's one boy from each clique. With the wording of the achievement, perhaps their lifting the only six restriction.

purplerose said:

Reading ftw. Forgive the double, but I thought Fruit Brute was being literal with his description. "Receive 20 kisses from the gents" is rather vague. It would be nice if they let you kiss any boy you want, ala Fable 2 (I'm still hoping), but I'm not sure.

This is why I love Rockstar. They are open-minded and not afraid to have a bit of fun with things.

I was going to pick this up anyway since I missed it on the Sony platforms, but now I feel like I should buy multiple copies just to show my support!

Isn't this the first gay-related achievement?

Avshalon said:

Well at least the didn't call it the "Ew ew gross gross nasty horrible disgusting going to hell" achievement.

Exian said:

Purplerose: there are SIX boys I can kiss? [gets swoony] There's one more boy out there for me than I thought! Yay! Scuse me. I better head off to art class now. And grab some more flowers from in front of the girls' dorm.

So is the achievement "kisses from twenty guys," or "twenty kisses from guys?" The latter seems too easy. Then again, *I* sometimes seem to easy. It's just an illusion, fellas!

I think calling the achievement "Over the Rainbow" is pure Rockstar. It's tongue in cheek, but it isn't mean.

xxxxx
xxxxx

THERE. Now EVERY ONE OF YOU got twenty virtual kisses from an actual guy. [g]

i don't understand the homophobia surrounding this achievement, personally. i mean, it's a video game. this and hot coffee, so much controversy over so little. the ability to kiss boys was in the ps2 version, and i was a little worried they'd take it out. i was surprised (and impressed) they made it an achievement.

personally, i always thought it was pretty cool (and amusing) inclusion in the game, and i'm entirely straight. it's USEFUL too, to know which boys can be made out with, because kissing gives you health.

to the above comment: a) rockstar vancouver is not rockstar north, they're different people, and b) who says an anal joke is necesarily directed at ONLY gay people? and rockstar typically makes crude sexual jokes of every kind, why leave out the ocassional gay joke? it's not exactly rampant homophobia and discrimination or stereotyping.
