Dragon's Crown, Lightning Returns, and Becoming the Thing We Hate

PixlBit | "There's been a lot of controversy just about everywhere these days regarding how women are portrayed in video games. Frankly, I'm glad to see it. Controversy has a way of exposing us to new perspectives and fresh opinions in a way few other things can. It's given many women a platform to discuss how things like this make them feel sexualized, marginalized, and mistreated. It's also given others the chance to promote the radical idea that perhaps the size of a woman's bust shouldn't dictate how we perceive them; that big boobs don't necessarily mean a shallow character with a tiny brain. It's also indirectly fed Jenn Frank's idea (which has since garnered international attention) for a BoobJam: A call for the creative souls among us whose coding Kung Fu is strong, to create games about boobs, with the caveat that the content show breasts from a more practical or biological angle as opposed to the typical straight male gaze, or sexually gratifying perspective."

The story is too old to be commented.

Agreed can they STFU
Who cares its art. Besides nobody is thanfully getting on Namco for Milla Maxwell's outfit in "Tales of Xillia" . Regardless though for fucks sake its a game.

Why do people hate Lightning so much?
FYI I haven't played the latest FF game =(

I think most if the hate towards Lightning is because people hate FF13. I like the character but man FF13 was not good.

I like lightning as a character, she might even be my favorite final fantasy character. Squall would probably be 2nd.

Wait what? Lighting is coming back, why? Couldn't she go away?

I would have prefered Square-Enix back to its rooth, when they made good J-rpg... FF6 <3

I'm playing though ff13 for the first time and I'm really enjoying it, the atb is kind of addicting. Lightning returns battle system looks like something I'll enjoy even more.

Lovable1614d ago

Uh'll get crucified now.

Williamson1614d ago

Yea I know :(
I dont mean to offend anyone, its just how I feel about the game.

Ahem: More Dragon's Crown DLC would be great. More quests more characters more boo... er loot new levels. Yeah I want that!
