Don't Like the 'Riptide' Severed Torso? Don't Buy It

Anthony Accinelli of RealSG writes, "Yes, that's a severed bikini-clad female torso. If you don't like it, don't buy it. It's really that simple" (Dead Island Riptide, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

Boom , hit the nail on the head, but people rather complain about it than ignore it.......Especially when movies like Saw or Human Centipede don't get nearly as much scrutiny from anyone

Well yeah, Saw and Human Centipede are movies, they obviously can't be bad if they're not a violent video game. /S

Absolutely. Ridiculous.

It's just so immature....

Much like a video game starring a big black rapper named Sam B that runs around an island and bashes zombie's skulls in.

People need to get over this kind of thing.

To be fair, the people who are complaining about it likely aren't going to buy it anyway.

wooooaahh .. stop with your logic here. Not allowed.

At least somebody gets it.

I agree, I hate how people complain about something thats not forced upon them. No one is making you to buy it, ignore it and move on.

But on the statue itself? it's a little much. It just looks like a butchered woman, kinda wrong in my opinion.

Yeah, that goes without saying.

But what was the idea anyway? Big breasted women's bloody torso with a tiny Union Jack bikini, you couldn't get much more controversial.

All the women in the game look like that

@NoTheMama lol im sorry but only lonely pervs like big boobs?? sounds like an A cup talking.
Im 22 and married and I still love Big boobs! women call men who by nature Love breasts nothing we can do about it perverts and then go read erotic novels and 50 shades of gray and say its inspirational? but porn is for pervs .
People say these things objectify women , then why do women go "Enhance" their boobs? Because they know Us men love them and there is nothing wrong with that! they bring up some B.S about it gives them confidence when they are really saying it makes them hotter to men period.

It's not offensive it's just pointless. Why would I even want a fake one of these when I've got real ones piled up in my basement?

At least this isnt being constantly forced down your throat like say, Gundam Style. I find the latter more offensive.
MattS  +   542d ago
So, if you don't like something, you're not allowed to protest against it any more?

I thought most of the gaming community were for free speech. Oh well, there goes that theory, huh?

I see it that Deep Silver think all gamers are lonely pervs. If not, theyre just trying to pull off another publicity stunt to get people talking about their game.
