it would be unfortunate if they simply took it out. I want to know what the level is like.

If they take it out (which they shouldn't!!!), then they should still have it available as free dlc. That way the only people to play that are ones that aren't "offended" by it :)

Why complain about the sexism? At least it was fairly advanced, racially. I mean, the sexy nuns were led by a black lady.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure progressiveness works on a point scale, so, it evens out.

oh please have some ballz and release the dam thing.

Sexism? You mean people weren't complaining about blasphemy or sacriligiousness? What's this world coming to?

The trailer was about as Sacrilegious as it was sexist. People offend far to easily about things, or simply look for the controversy in anything.

Depicting a woman as sexualized isn't instantly sexist, I don't know where the "gender role" handbook said woman should roll with RPG's and kill dudes.

I couldn't agree more, Ravenor. It's true--people are either far too sensitive or go out of their way to find something to complain about.

Before dropping a s**t, go watch the latest Jimquisition. He really puts things into perspective. Whether or not you agree with the complaints set forward, understand how great it is that people are willing to stop and examine/question things like this.

And come on, the trailer is a bunch of women tearing their clothes off and then getting dominated in a series of punches and bullets. If nothing else, it's a cheap, uncomfortable thrill, at the very best. At worst it is a bunch of women being objectified seconds into making their appearance and then being used as slow-mo punching bags.
