What Happens When You Scrub A Female Co-Star From A Magazine Cover

Kotaku - Here's a weird thing. The cover of the latest issue of Scandinavian mag GameReactor features, as many covers will this month, The Last Of Us. What's different about this one, though, is that it's caught the attention of developers Naughty Dog, as the image has been altered from its original form. (PS3, The Last Of Us)

This is not a story. This is like one of those pointless TMZ articles. Find another hobby.

Dude. It's Kotaku. Even a lot of developers openly consider them a joke. Every time I see a Kotaku article being submitted it's usually from the same person.

"What Happens When You Scrub A Female Co-Star From A Magazine Cover?"

We get another article by Kotaku trying to turn everything into a feminazi issue.

I dunno why some country in the middle of nowhere decided to remove a female character from it's cover...maybe it was a stupid male-ego cultural thingy from that country. The rest of the world isn't like that so it's not really relevent enough to make a big deal about.

Reading the comments below the majority of people seem to think it's connected to a child holding a gun which given previous events can seem "offensive" etc etc.

Whatever. Either way it's not news especially if its for a small reason like that).

Kotaku always report the bottom pile stories.

The funny thing about it all is that the incident took place in the most feminazi country on the planet, Sweden.

<We get another article by Kotaku trying to turn everything into a feminazi issue.>

The video game industry is becoming the latest victim of Marxism via feminism. Why else do you think it has been pandering to the "casual" crowd for the last 8 years?

Got to be honest, Ellie doesn't look as good as the guy. And without her I do think it looks a little better. But should they have removed her for any reason, no I don't think they should have.

You get a boring 'protagonist with a gun facing the camera' cover and a shitty article from Kotaku, that's what.

I read somewhere that this photo was actually the WINNER of a poll GR posted. 2nd place was one with Ellie, and 3rd and 4th place were some other games. I don't know why Ellie was taken out, but this photo still won over the one with Ellie in it.

No reason to make a stupid article about something so small though, and something GR's fans did.
