I'd Forgotten This All-Girl Fighting Game Was A Thing

Kotaku - Man, what was that game again? The one where the women are all kidnapped and forced to fight, with the Nobel Peace Prize winner in the fishnet top and cut-offs with electrical tape over her chest? Man, good thing Kung Fu Factory decided to get rid of... oh wait, they're still making Girl Fight? And it's due out this month? (Girl Fight, PS3, Xbox 360)

I can literally feel the comments of how this game is sexist flowing in

Have you ever noticed how the people/websites making a big deal about these things are often sleazier than what they are complaining about?
Eonjay  +   409d ago
Naw if the offended females wanted to really get their point across, they would make a overtly sexualized fighting game where all the characters where male models fighting in speedos and tighty-whities with whips, chains and whipped cream. Until then they are going to have to calm down and grab a controller.

And rightfully so.

No it's not,males usually prefer a sexual woman over an ordinary one,men like boobs(the bigger the better for most men at least) and they like their women to be sassy,what's wrong with that ?

So now let's go on and on how adult films and any adult theme(even in major block buster movies) should be banned for it's distasteful view of women oh booohooo !

I for one have no problem with women being sexy,be that in videogames or in reality.

@Studio you have missed the point entirely.

Most PEOPLE prefer fair representation of gender,race and sexuality. Games in general are poor in their representation of all of these things and it's only fair that they get called out on it and praised when they get it right. The Last of Us is a great example of great representation .

Also 'sexy' is subjective. To me wearing next to no clothing or/and being 'sassy' are overused clichés. This kind of crap is saturating all forms of media and people should be allowed to express their dissatisfaction that all to often developers/producers default to it to gain male interest.

There is nothing wrong with adult themes but for the most part the execution of these themes leaves a lot to be desired and calling the over sexualisation of female characters adult themes is a cop out.

@TenBensons "Most PEOPLE prefer......"

It would seem that you have, most unfortunately, mistaken the meaning of the word most.

@Das Tier

Touché.

Have a bubble for humour alone.

Just watched some gameplay and it was tame as hell. Dead or Alive is like 5x worse.
Blacklash93  +   410d ago
Can people stop saying "literally" when they actually mean the exact opposite?
Blacklash93  +   409d ago
I just find it annoying. People mean figuratively, which is essentially the opposite of "literally" yet they use that term anyway. You cannot literally feel comments being posted on the internet.

I'll just use this guy comment: "Oh hey it's like Skullgirls only awful" that what I think

Damn liberals...
adventureghost124  +   409d ago
not exactly liberals, feminists, and damn can they be ignorant

Guess no one has ever heard of Arcana Heart? It has been there done that :)
clearelite  +   410d ago
Thanks for the recommendation.
sdozzo  +   410d ago
Haha
sypher  +   410d ago
hehe, no problem ;)
Studio-YaMi  +   410d ago
The girls in this Dead or Alive wannabe aren't even really sexy to begin with.

And yes Arcana Heart is AWESOME ! :D
Lord_Sloth  +   410d ago
This music is terrible, designs are meh, and the animations are very stiff...Not a euphemism either.
Studio-YaMi  +   410d ago
Agreed!
Broburger  +   410d ago
Not bad, but it could be a lot better. I hope next gen devs focus on the thigh and butt physics as much as the boobs. The more jiggly the better.

I just wanna know if this game will 1. Be any good mechanically speaking. 2. If it will make any sense. IF the game is a sound fighter then it doesn't need to make any sense. But why all girls? I can understand the arguement, why not? But really? didnt we already have something like this and it didnt do too well?
MightyNo9  +   410d ago
Zero sales incoming...
MacDonagh  +   410d ago
Oh Kotaku.

Your faux outrage does nothing for me.
nunley33  +   409d ago
there is a trailer for the game on PSN too, its ok but only with a discount.
PurpHerbison  +   409d ago
I'd like to declare this comment section worthless before it actually gets there. I don't have time to come back later today.
