Tomb Raider scribe Rhianna Pratchett has spoken about the rape controversy that stemmed from a trailer and then comments made by a Crystal Dynamics producer earlier in the year.
'British tabloid The Sun, which ran the characteristically melodramatic headline: ’Lara Croft in Island Rape Hell’.'
The Sun, the only UK newspaper that has any respectability in the industry...thats why the first thing you encounter when you turn the front page is a pair of t*tties.
Page 3 is the only reason half the "readers" buy the paper lol
The controversy came from outside of the gaming community as is always the case when the contented of video games is taken out of context.
pretty sure its tame compared to 50 shades of grey,and they didnt blow that out of proportion over the headlines... don't worry fellas i havnt read it, no no i have a woman to do that then she relay me all the dirty bits
Lol my misses is just read the 50 shades trillogy could keep her head out the dam thing. As for the sun and borderline top level shelf, there Is the sunday paper. But my misses does it more than some edited pictures, on topic kinda board with this laura/rape thing.
People are desperate for sales, ratings, and hits. That and the ignorant factor are the only reason this is even an issue. Movies have rapes all tthe time. Have you seen Irreversible? Monica Belluci literally gets violently anally raped for 10 minutes.
In a movie called " I spit on your grave" there was a woman who was getting raped by 5 men. In a game, talk about rape? people go crazy! If there was something about cutting off her head. No one would say a word. Sex and rape is still much worse than murder here in 2012. Sex and rape and murder happening every day, worldwide. I know what I think is the worst, murder of course.!
Good Lord, let's not exhume this subject again!
