Acts like this justifies colonialism.
Gruesome but probably had an effect on population control. Which is why population is such a problem for humanity now. Too many unproductive mouths to feed and all that
Meh, still seems like a trumper.
the sheer number of accusations certainly doesn't look good. that alone should cause you to take notice. But being a fan of the scientific method/evidence I just can't roll with it. He probably did it, but I don't think anyone should convict people via He/She said He/She said. If there was some DNA evidence or something tangible involved I'd be less conflicted. Meh, I'd rather not think about it either way.....if he did it, then he got what he deserved...if Not then that's tragic also.
he was great. Love how triggered Alex got when he dared to suggest that as a new parent she might have a tough time being authoritative with her child. He literally said nothing controversial at all but she was so threatened by his suggestion. Quite entertaining. She really is awful every time I see her on here.
You don't wanna know who I am bro. And I will continue to be salty about it, thank you very much.
People are still judging Chris brown for hitting Rhianna or has he beat up more women since then? Did white people not know he never left the radio.
I think this trans race has to be acceptable. All anyone here keeps telling me is sex and race are just social constructs, soooo If one is able to identify as a sex other than what they were born as, who are we to say that they don’t feel they are a different race.
To you. I don't need to hear anymore from this clown in makeup. Nothing "fascinating" about some dumb hoe who sued Howard, then decided she was black for the "perks" or whatever. You'll disagree, shockingly.. You don't know! Would she ever lie? Come on..
I’m not close minded towards trans issues so I’ll give her special a view.
And people took it out of context and turned it into Sanders vs. Clinton discussion, which I honestly didn't intend for to happen. Whatever your thoughts on Sanders are, Clinton is clearly centre-right and to me it's baffling that someone can be so upset about a comedian like Maher not being progressive enough (implying they care so deeply about progressive values that they're that picky) yet be comfortable with voting for someone who's clearly not the most progressive on her side of the political isle.
I'm just gonna stop you right there. You can also fuck right off, because I have put more blood sweat and tears into working for, stumping for, and generally busting my ass for political campaigns, get out the vote efforts, and protests than you could possibly comprhend. You've got a real problem opening your mouth to say stupid shit when you don't know anything.
People's expectations are skewed badly online. Women gets hundreds of likes a day from guys who just want to one time them. Many of them married or partnered up. Many of them creeps. It creates a problem for the genuine guys to get a look in. You're more than likely getting filtered out along with the hook up guys. The women because they have guys messaging them by the hundred load a day believe everyone wants them. That they are literally God's gift to manhood. Their expectations are skewed. They date the good looking/rifh dudes and get sidelined or messed around, and then complain that the guys in general are messing them about. If they could accurately filter the time wasters and creeps, they would get to half decent guys who would happily respect them and date them. Problem is the average guy isn't super good looking, not rich. Gotta keep expectations in check. tldr; it's a ckuster fuck. Good luck have batman.
With a drive-by, single-sentence post that pats him on the back for a disproved assertion? I'm at least willing to entertain the thought, yes.
This is the guy who spearheaded the deal to make Rise of the Tomb Raider one year exclusive to Xbox. It failed badly and he "left the studio" shortly thereafter. Now he's working for the people whom he made the exclusive sweet deal for. It's not surprising, I don't think there are many companies out there clamoring for him given his business catastrophe. It's almost like the revolving door in politics where they graduate to lobbying.
Actually it's been dismissed to death in this thread. Bayonetta is sexy and confident and powerful without the need to wear armor or have bulging muscles. And she emerges victorious with little effort. So I guess she is a power fantasy too huh? I mean she was designed by a woman after all.
Most gamers are men. As simple as that. Sex is not only a bait but THE bait. In all aspects of life. In any case, again the double standard. We talk about oversexualized female characters but not a word on the superhero male model showing off muscles, Dante from DMC 3 or more recently Gladio, from FFXV. Lot of talk about Cindy but NONE complained about Gladio. The difference? how much one side likes to make noise while the other side could not care less. Japanese are a little perv and they like fantasizing with women that are not often seen in their daily life ? Of course. But we, westerns, should not measure it by our standards but theirs. Unfortunately there is lot of posing in this SJW. They know they get visits on the internet so their behaviour becomes more radical which consequence is that most times the legit causes are mixed up with the bullshitting ones.
Looks a the P5 outfits. Looks back at thread. Remembers why I decided to bail out. And here's hoping Nintendo puts bikini Samus in Prime 4, if only for the giggles.
because souls fans are insane
The few snippets of zero two's behavior I've seen are quite ludicrous. The thing is gender /= biological sex. And there are people who don't subscribe to either gender. Unless you're doing something like deepfakes, or mimicking the face of some real person, it is fiction don't think nonexistent character representation has anything to do with respect, it only deals with representation of biological sex which is distinct from gender, women /= biological female bodies. The same issues could be brought against future sex bots, once they pass the uncanny valley. But again, I do not think objects with female bodies in and of themselves are disrespecting anyone. If you see the statue of David, in what way does that disrespect men? I don't think it does. I think this idea is an attempt at trying to use the "misappropriation" idea again, to misuse it, that is to say you can't portray a certain race, a certain sex, a certain class, a certain group, a certain political group, a certain religion without permission. But in fiction, you don't need to ask neo-nazis or kkk or surviving nazis how to portray them. In satire you don't need to ask a political party if they'd like to be made fun off. Irrespective of the group, freedom of expression allows you to represent any group any class. Of course if you do tasteless things, you will offend, you will provoke, and you will have to deal with the result of that.
This is the opposite of anecdotal evidence though lol. This is a few fringe crazy people doing crazy things as reported by the media. We don't judge an entire group of people for that kinda stuff, right? Most gamers in general don't even know who Anita is. The point I was trying to make is I've never heard ANY man ever say anything like "women are objects who exist solely for male titillation and pleasure" or believes that in any way. The few people who do think like that are social outcasts that don't get alot with the rest of society. At least that's how I see it...
It's not the videogames it's the consumers. The industry is just an assistant to bring imagination to life. Now tell me to give everyone injections to lower their desires like it was done with gay people not too long ago.
Not focusing only on loli but when you start to ban fiction material, where is the line drawn? Right now is "we will remover any depiction of unreal underage" and that is valid, but it also open the game to plausible keep the ball rolling for whatever future people get a distaste towards
Replying to this post because you've asked for candid responses. Now - I don't like Senran Kagura and know nothing of it beyond those two videos you posted. But I like DoAX3 and am willing to defend that, so I reckon I'm close enough to be able to give a relevant response. But having watched those videos, I don't agree that they're pretty gross. I don't see what makes them pretty gross. You're interactively harassing or assaulting a virtual character. That's it. You, the player, is behaving like an asshole and a pervert to a young woman. It's not for me, but you describe it as 'potentially harmful' and I just can't see it. Potentially harmful to who? Pixels? Fictional characters? Sure. Real people ...how? Do you mean to imply that there could be someone out there who interacts with this and thinks to himself "Ah, I see. So this is the way to treat women. I was doing it incorrectly all along. From now on when I see a bikini-clad maiden I shall proceed to give her bosoms friendly pokes and slaps. If she recoils with tears in her eyes I will know I have done it correctly." Because that doesn't happen. Stuff like this exists you can't treat people like this in real life, it would be gross in real life. It the same reason all kinds of forbidden behaviour appears in video games, most of it violent, but some of it, like this, sexual. And like video game violence, I don't believe that it affects anyone who isn't already predisposed to that kind of behaviour, and I believe only very realistic content (real both emotionally and visually) can have such an effect. Slapping around some poorly-rendered cartoon character in a blatantly silly atmosphere is not anywhere near the level of realism that would cause anyone to get confused. On the other hand, I can't see how this is harmful in the overall context of video games either, because this is a niche game for a tiny audience that is aimed squarely at heterosexual male otakus. There aren't any women feeling excluded by this game having sexualisation - sexualisation is the raison d'etre of the game. So from that point of view no harm is being done either. This isn't a 'Cindy in FFXV' situation here. I suppose that's a defense of the game. Apparently you believe this opinion means I shouldn't be welcome in the forum? I think that goes too far, but each to his own, I know you mean well. To be clear, I'm certainly not angry, just confused at the level of your opprobrium to something I consider totally harmless. As for the second part of the question, the 'Why do you enjoy being pandered to in such a gratuitous, over-the-top manner', well, you've nailed it. It's the interactivity. For me, I'm an amateur photographer. I love taking pictures of stuff. Getting the right lens, the right aperture, setting up the light or being in the right place at the right time. I've done all kinds of photography - landscape, macro, safari, architectural and urban exploration - but one kind I don't get to do that I've always wanted to is taking pictures of half-naked beautiful women - because I don't have access to beautiful women who'd get naked and just pose all day. Guess what, no normal guy does! DoAX3 lets me live out this thing I can't do in real life, and I love it for it. You can't pan the camera around a model and find the perfect angle in porn. And that last sentence is basically 100% of the appeal, if I'm being as candid as you want me to be. And to be extra candid, I don't actually know anyone with the physical attributes of a Momiji from DoA. (They might actually be impossible.) Put those things together and I can spend an hour just setting up scenes, taking pictures, and appreciating the beauty of the subject. Some do the same with landscapes in Horizon or the cars in GT Sport. For me, I prefer female models. It's just purely an enjoyment of physical beauty thing. So if you want to know where the enjoyment comes from, that's it for me. I get that almost everyone else in the thread isn't going to think that's enjoyable, but it should be obvious how to some people it is. I don't get anything out of discussing it with other people other than sharing good images, so I don't really discuss it. And I disagree, as I've stated before, that it's ludicrous or harmful. And that's an important point. People don't defend these games them being 'so clearly ludicrous and harmful' they defend them because they that they're harmful. (I just want to say that all of this is, as you said, assuming the characters are 18. Marie Rose in DoA shouldn't be allowed, imo. It's actually fucking that there wasn't more fuss over her being in DoAX3.)
Last time I respond to someone clearly too passionate to handle facts.
...As someone who was raised Buddhist by my Burmese parents...fuck you. Fuck you for misinterpreting the teachings of Siddhartha Gautama. Don't come here with your willful mistranslation. From the bottom of my heart ?????????????
I'll personally defend it because I find it hilarious. Ludicrous things like that are like that for me. That being said, I haven't actually played any SK games beyond a demo IIRC, but those videos make me want to. It's the kind of absurdism I find appealing. Even if the combat is bad, presentation goes a long way. That SK thread has actually got me curious too with people saying there are legit well-written characters. I'm trying to wrap my head around that claim. I would find the cognitive dissonance of that absolutely fascinating if things do indeed get as serious as they say.
It goes back to Buddhism and how sex is less taboo than with other religions. Do some googles if you want to know so bad. I thought it was common knowledge how expansive the sex industry was out there. Fan-service or not, the point is they handle this content just fine over there. It's not the games' fault.
And then you got banned.
no because blanket statements accusing people of being pedos really doesnt do anyone any favors when its over cartoons that have numbers arbitrarily added to them Edit: Im not saying sexualization of children is acceptable, if its someone like Nanako in Persona 4, ya thats creepy and weird. But ive been called a pedo for liking P5 and choosing the Futaba route when really the difference is arbitrary when someone like a Makoto fan gets a free pass on the subject. All im saying is context, blanket statements dont help anyone
I remember years back when we could make fun of creeps who jerk off to prepubescent anime girls and now it's all "but it doesn't hurt anyoneeee", "don't kink shameeeeeee", "don't say mean things about the anime community even though most people in it are complicit by tolerating and defending the sexualization of minooooors", "but she's a 47598789375869 year old dragoooooonnnnn"
Meh, I see nothing wrong with Pyra’s design nor Rex’s relationship with her in the context of the game. Even if the lead character was a female with a male 2ndary lead playing the love interest I have a feeling those who lean a bit too far in to “everything in gaming is now sexist” would just say that the game is anchoring the female lead down with a love interest they don’t need, and the only reason the male character is there is because the developers think the women always need a man... It feels like there’s no winning with certain types of people until the female characters are fully covered and ugly.
I nowhere had said that "rape is fine". If you have read it like this, you need to step away from your kool-aid and check your stupid useless head. I said there is difference, between "rape" and "bad flirting", which is true. I deeply detest any form of violence against women, including rape and harassment. At the same time, I think there is a fine line, between, accusing people and automatically assume "guilty until proven innocent". That is all. With that said, I am out. I am not good enough to join your club, where your masturbate each other egos. Have fun, but know that your whining won't change the world one bit. Get a healthy dose of reality, college drop-outs.
One single character design could not, even theoretically, put me off from playing the game. It would be petty on my part and I have never understood when people do that, because, it's one design out of many and game consists out of many things, like gameplay, music, other designs, e.t.c. Being turned off the whole package by just one single aspect is senseless and illogical to me. For example: I really disliked a lot of designs in MK9 - most of the female designs in this game were tasteless and boring (especially Mileena, who was one of my favorite characters in the past) and she, alongside Kitana was heavily shafted both in costume and story departments. Nevertheless, I am really big fan of the series and I really loved the gameplay. It's possible to like the game and admit that there are some problems with it, be it designs or gameplay. On the other hand, there is MGSV. Despite my big love for the series and the fact that MGS2 has one of the biggest influences on my outlook on what video games could be, I didn't want to play this game, due to the multiple problems, like some designs, story decisions and gameplay. So all in all, I can be turned off the game, when there are more things then one that I dislike. As for diversity - you have already said it - I'd like to see more characters of various ethnicities as long as they nicely written. Often I see people saying characters and going "good enough / at least it's something", i can understand it, but it doesn't really sit well with me, because, "token" character doesn't really feel genuine. Of course, it is case by case thing. There is no such thing as "sacrosanct" games. Everything can be criticized as long as criticism makes sense and not goes into realm of personal taste. If you lost friends because of such stupid shit, it is your problem, not theirs. Zealousy is never good. As this thread proves. Someone in this thread said, that, when people address problematic stuff, some people take it as if ti was personal insult. I see a great irony, that you take my criticism of some people as a personal slight. "Vaguely antagonistic"...What is this? You can't even figure out what I was trying to say, but you still say that I did something bad. OK. "Rude, dismissive, hostile". So many buzzwords. So little meaning. It's like you have a dictionary, which you apply, whenever, possible, with zero understanding and contexts.
How does that make you difference form a sexist or racist? Honestly ? I've seen enough Asians driving badly so I lost all faith in Asian's driving. All I see is emotional females so I lost faith in the female sex. Is that something I could say? It's just never good to generalize.
I should have worded my point differently - I think this opinion, that RE is somehow , and the rest of the Internet is worse - somewhat hilarious. Though for some people glass is always half-empty. Apparently some people don't understand how to make characters expressive via art style and see it as bunch of evil words for the sake of nerds. Oh well. Nope, got it first time, just wanted to clarify. Sorry, I am not specialist on fictional women. Goodspeed to you in this uneasy study. Should I send you a hand cream?
This is the best thread ever It’s never ending I completely disagree with comparing racism with Cindy and Pyra and Quiet and some other female characters There is a reason why 1 is against the law and the other are games with teen ratings or even lower And no This is not because society accepts this and that but not that and that There are fundamental differences This is a no-brainer Its actually degrading the effect of racism If you want to make it as broad as how women are threated in some countries its more a good camparison of course But dont use it in discussions about Cindy etc Women in Iran are at this very moment literally risking their lives on the streets of Iran Yes how they are threated is like genatical racism But please dont get carried away in discussions about some character designs and comparing it to racism
Why wouldn't MS do that since they are desperate to get reasons into buy an One X?
Well no, but Racism is factually a wrong and evil thing I don't think ogling is, atleast not in media? I also don't think ogling in real life is necessarily bad as long as its not obvious or done to harass someone. Just really not sure how that compares?
Oh, I dunno. Maybe most people just like to play games and don’t want irl politics to interfere with that...but hey, what do I know? ¯\_(?)_/¯
They just pulled up the brightness and took off all helmet textures to get stable FPS is my guess. Maybe they aren't lazy but they will not feel the urge to do something out of the box if they have calculated we will give them that amount of money before-hand without craving something back. (ok, seems it's the publishers responsibility to give the remaster developers the proper resources) I pre-ordered MHW and will not play it until it gets a locked 30 fps patch. Capcom are really lazy not giving us that for example
What it comes down to, is that a group of people wants games to set a positive example by only including content that they agree with. And I think that's scary. I don't want game developers to encourage certain thoughts or behaviors. I wouldn't trust them with such an important task anyway. Developers shouldn't be lumbered with raising and educating people. They're just creating entertainment. Entertainment that reflects the real world. Entertainment catered towards people's desires. That's the free market.
That's just how it is, really there are giant double standards in real life just as they are in video games. Women tend to be sexualized more and male characters tend to be cattle set for slaughter in violent games. That would be an interesting topic to discuss.
Find some and ask them, maybe they can take a joke unlike some here in the West.
Yea and a game decides to appeal to certain audience that's horrible and it should be deleted from the world right? That's sure how people make it sound these days. If a pub chooses to make a game to appeal to everyone that's fine, but when they decide to go another way they should be able to do that without the fear of having to censor their art to appease the eternally triggered.
Criticizing fanservice and then saying you don't want it banned is the same as verbally abusing a person for their clothes and then expect them to continue wearing them. And in case of video games, where the consumer has all the power and the social media is capable of persuading masses, criticizing fanservice literally leads to less interest from devs in localization and development of such titles. Some publishers now avoid releasing games in the west because of the abuse they receive for their games' content and have to resort to publishing their games in English in Asia to avoid controversy. If this weren't the case, you'd just be wasting your time complaining on the internet ad nauseam. I guess you should be happy knowing that you're affecting the industry with your "harmless" posts.
