Something most people didn’t know about Halo 2…

…is that the PC version was rated M (all have been “M” except for Halo Wars) with the inclusion of “partial nudity”.

Uhhhh. Partial Nudity? And even before Hot Coffee…. via ESRB

Well, it turns out that Cortana didn’t have a holograph-malfunction, nor is there a secret Grunt Bachelor Party.

“Halo 2 for Windows Vista | Microsoft | Mature: Blood and Gore, Language, Partial Nudity, Violence | Windows PC ”

Now, being a teenage boy I would have noticed the partial nudity in my many playthroughs of #2. So, where is it?

It turns out that when the amalgam scene specification (or .ass) was run through a Halo 2 tool, an error would occur. Now, just the .ass shouldn’t have gotten on the ESRB’s nerve. What did was the picture of a man’s ass. I’m guessing a Bungie employee’s ass.

.Ass error, now with real Bungie butt! via

Speaking on condition of anonymity, a source says this was bugged but it was pushed off due to time constraints. Considering that this actually pushed the re-release date BACK a month, you’d think they would have just deleted the image…
