faces are like men in drag,lol

Slugg3r1417d ago

Following the tradition. There was always something in the females of Hitman games that wasn't quite right.

SilentNegotiator1417d ago (Edited 1417d ago )

The redhead looks....passable. But the "NSFW" pics.....well, I think I'm glad they weren't TOO NSFW.

thorstein1417d ago

Sincerely... and no sexy nuns but now we have *ahem* tranny nurses.

Great job at giving in to pressure from people who WON'T buy the game in first place. Saints Row has a dildo bat, but oooohh nooooo we can't have hitwomen dressed as nuns. /s

SilentNegotiator1417d ago (Edited 1417d ago )

@thorstein

Another person who doesn't understand the controversy, I see.

The issue was with the gratuitousness and lack of context in the original video. Women appeared, took their clothes off, and were killed in violent ways. That doesn't represent the game well and it features incredibly primal, overly simple thrills. It lacked context and the studio even admitted themselves that it lacked context and made changes to the game to make sure it did.

"We learned from the trailer that we really needed to give these characters some context and some backstory. We're working within the game - within that level - to build these characters up before you meet them. That way you know what you're getting and you aren't put off by them."
--blystad

The "whining" lead to an improved game.

BozoLoco1417d ago

@SilentNegotiator It led to an improved game?

How? Elaborate. And from a mechanic, engaging standpoint, not from an ideological, morality standpoint.

thorstein1417d ago

@Silent Far smarter people than you or I have said much about such things:

"Censorship, like charity, should begin at home; but, unlike charity, it should end there."
Clare Booth Luce

"There is more than one way to burn a book. And the world is full of people running about with lit matches." -(the late great) Ray Bradbury

"Our liberty depends on the freedom of the press, and that cannot be limited without being lost."

Thomas Jefferson

The point is, it is censorship, be it by an authority or by kowtowing to a outspoken minority group. My statement was that they bowed to pressures from a group that never would have purchased it in the first place.

You claim that it is now a better game. How do you know that? Did you have an alpha build of the original? And now you have a preview copy? The retail version isn't available until 11/20. How is it that you are privy to information the rest of the gaming public and journalism has not put its hands on?

SilentNegotiator1412d ago (Edited 1412d ago )

They ADDED CONTEXT. They didn't censor anything.

The developers themselves said that the scene lacked context and went back and added story to make sure the scene made sense and the characters were understood.

You guys don't understand the issue and I even tried to explain it. All you guys did was type out tropes about censorship and morality, when even by the developer's words the issue was context.

Rude, rude, ignorant people.

thorstein1412d ago

This is from the Devs:
"The nun characters did "fit" the Hitman universe, Blystad argued, explaining that previous games have always been "colourful and cartoony".

"The Saints fit into that somewhere, but it is a more extreme level in the game than others."

And, with the changes in place, developer IO Interactive does not expect any further fallout from the footage."

And with the changes in place. Censorship -the suppression of words, images, or ideas

The key word being suppression. It doesn't necessarily mean elimination. IE Manhunt 2 was censored when Rockstar suppressed the images of the most brutal kills.

As I said in a PM, I am not trying to be snarky about the definition, silent. I don't think you understand what it means.

Pic of that one girl reminds me of Charlie Murphy's Hollywood Stories...

"one eye was on me.... the other was on Rick" XD

ThanatosDMC1417d ago (Edited 1417d ago )

At first, i doubted you, but i clicked and immediately closed the tab. I'm sorry...

crxss1417d ago

oh gawd thanks for the warning. *puke*

showtimefolks1417d ago

Everyone i spoke to about this game says the same thing either this will be the best hitman game to date or it will suck. There is no middle ground.

I do hope this turn out to be great game because hitman is a very under rated and under appreciated series,

SE have 2 huge reboots. Tomb raider and hitman

bozebo1417d ago (Edited 1417d ago )

They said it's a change from the usual, so in my mind that makes it suck - because it isn't really Hitman anymore (and the x-ray vision and stuff, wtf?). Still, it could be a great game otherwise.

It involves Enix, so don't expect much.

attilayavuzer1417d ago

Can't believe this is still ahead of all the GTA V articles...

knowyourstuff1417d ago

Right, becase nobody knows men in drag quite like chukamachine.

SMH, Now watch this become a top news article. Sigh... The n4g community needs to get out more.

DragonKnight1417d ago

Do you really think that people who go out what you would consider a sufficient amount of times are dead and stop looking at hot people? They don't you know. It's just biology.

Bimkoblerutso1417d ago

This time I wish my biology would have just shut the hell up.

attilayavuzer1417d ago

But it's not "hot people", it's awkward cg models

DragonKnight1416d ago

The point is that Mika believes that n4g is filled with sexually starved outcasts and thus news like this always reaches high degrees for that reason. It's an implication that people who "have lives" or "go out" wouldn't be inclined to look at things like these. Sorry, but it doesn't work like that. Whether it be sexually suggestive writing, or full on nudity, everyone will pay attention unless they are asexual. It's biology.

Omnislash1416d ago

Shes basically calling us basement dweller, kissless virgins that get too excited over news of hot CG rendered video game girls...

I guess we should all go fist pumping and have sex with random leather couch girls from the jersey shore so we wont be looking at these character renders and make it a top news article.

BioDio1417d ago

You've seen AND commented this article... so.. by your way of thinking... you need to get out more =/

SilentNegotiator1417d ago

1) You comment in like, all of these articles.

2) Getting out has nothing to do with anything....people don't get bored of looking at attractive people (even though these happen to be horrendously disappointing and ugly) just because they get out.

Hicken1417d ago

I have to wonder if you're some sort of Puritan who somehow got a computer, as what you have to say about this stuff is... ignorant, at best.

On topic, the renders look pretty freakin good from a graphical standpoint. Don't know how bikinis are NSFW, though.

Ducky1417d ago (Edited 1417d ago )

Bikini's are usually not valid work-appropriate attire. For some employees (such as those involved in construction work, assassinations or cooking) bikinis can indeed be unsafe for work. Thus the precautionary tag.

The models look down to earth, not huge breast like in alot of games. and the faces dont like men in drag, they look like natural women, not hyper-stylized.

2pacalypsenow1417d ago

Yeah compared to Blood money they learned cuz that game all women where DD's and huge asses

CaptCalvin1417d ago (Edited 1417d ago )

Just like how agent 47 is bald with a bar code on the back of his head, and always wears a suit with a bright red tie, because its super inconspicuous and is how all assassins would look to blend in with surroundings when they carry out hit right?

I like some of my games to be hyper stylized thank you very much, especially the ones that are MEANT to be hyper stylized. There are enough down to earth women down here on earth.

strigoi8141417d ago

Those women are supposed to look like women..but this are like men dressed up to be a women..

Captain Qwark 91417d ago

yeah they are flipping gross lol
