With the game finally coming out this May, Gearbox has begun talking a bit about the multiplayer modes, and in doing so has revealed some details that are sure to get some panties in a bunch.

A joyous "SQUEEEEEEE!" rose up from about 5 or 6 gamers in my work area when I sent out this story.

Despite the controversy, this game is shaping up to be a winner. Let's just hope it doesn't smack us in the face.

I still can't believe I said "Bitchslap" in a news post.

As a clarification:

When you slap the babes, it is not a slap in the face. You, as a character, are carrying the 'babe' over your shoulder and you give her a smack on the ass.

(Read the paragraph under the YouTube clip.)

Edit - another source:

(This one can be found as a link within the Ars one, but I've included it here just in case you missed it.)

Ahh, good catch. The way I read it, it sounded like it WAS a slap to the face (seems a little difficult to slap an ass with your hands full like that, though).

Either way, it's a truly bizarre feature.

I'd say I can't wait but that'd obviously be a lie. I remember telling someone I was looking forward to this in junior high!

I hear it has been delayed. There were some people talking about it at work but I'm not sure how reliable that information is. Water cooler talk and all.

If this is Gearbox playing a cruel trick to point out the history of delays...
