Enough with this crap. This is why nobody takes game journalism seriously anymore.

people are really making this into a huge issue aren't they? MGS series has always been known for this stuff. MGS1 has this moment:
MGS2 has fortune butt shots, and Raiden running around naked
MGS3 has tons of Eva moments
MGS4 every single B&B Boss, and Johnny turding everywhere.
Ocelot kissing Snake
Is this really a surprise? I mean we know nothing of the character either

Shadowstar1693d ago (Edited 1693d ago )

Well... honestly? MGS4 was actually a bit much for me with all the B&Bs and the way he dealt with the other ladies. I've always associated MGS with strong women, and MGS4 was... er... a little too much on the sexy, too little on the substance, ya know?

MGS3? Eva had the Boss to counterbalance her, and she was going for the specific Bond-girl trope anyways.
MGS2? Fortune had the rather unsexy (but cute) EE, and Rose.
MGS? Meryl claimed to be asexual, for goodness' sake. And any sexy there was balanced by all the women in support roles: Nastasha, Naomi and Mei Ling never struck me as particularly hot in gameplay.

That's the reason I'm a little concerned with Quiet. Kojima's had a good track record, but the comments, plus how he did MGS4, plus the attempt to get more of the American audience by changing the voice actor...? It makes me a little worried.

Nitrowolf21693d ago (Edited 1693d ago )

the issue really here I think is just Kojima early comment. I mean why didn't an article like this arrive right after the E3 showing? I mean clearly in the trailer we see the exact same outfitting. I just think people are picking at it because it's the hot thing to do right now. We know nothing of the story still (least in depth), we still got other female characters like Amanda, and I am sure an age version of Eva will appear, Rose might be in the game or at least another medic female like always.

People just need to realize that MGS has always had a sexy side to it. Sure it's not always great, but it's always been there and there's usually enough characters to make it balances.

Shadowstar1693d ago

Well, the obvious reason to have not worried about this during E3 is that we were all still upset about Hayter!

HarryMasonHerpderp1693d ago (Edited 1693d ago )

I think the worst thing about this design is it just comes across as really lazy.
I'm a huge MGS fan love all of the games and play them religiously but this design is just kinda....bland. Here's a women...look at her boobs. Sell more copies.
Thing is the MGS series doesn't need to stoop to that level and neither did Final Fantasy.
I know I'm jumping the gun a little because we don't know anything about her but this is what Konami has chosen to release to the fans first and we all know why that is.

haha... sexism articles make me laugh

There's nothing wrong if rockstar wants to sexyfy their GTA ads with a pic of a hot girl chewing bubble gum, or a studio creating DOA, or... a very reputable franchise wanting to have a sexy character

personally i'm glad there's some eye candy... something extra I'm used to that comes with metal gear's great games!

I don't think he can do better. MGS4 was the last good MGS and now MGSV is looking terrible even in terms of the voice acting.

Nitrowolf21693d ago (Edited 1693d ago )

um WTF are you talking about? MGS5 looks to be possibly one of the best MGS to date, and not just graphically speaking. It's complete stealth freedom this time around. I have a feeling this will take MGS3 for the top MGS for me.

Are you just mad that Snake is being voiced by someone else? Also Have you even played Peace Walker?

Snookies121693d ago (Edited 1693d ago )

MGS4 was the last good MGS? To be able to say that you'd have to have already played MGS V. That's lucky... You're lucky... -_-

MightyNo91693d ago

She's ugly as fuck. She has a weird face. Her body is ok but her head looks like it belongs to a fat lady.

HeyImBen111693d ago

Are you fuc'ing serious? She's probably 100x more sexy than any woman you'll ever touch.

Lionalliance1693d ago are you talking about?

sevilha821693d ago (Edited 1693d ago )

Yea bro she´s hideous,totattly wouldn´t tap that if i had the chance...

(sarcasam here)

Irishguy951693d ago

DeletedAcc1693d ago

Yes she looks much better in real indeed

But she looks also good in the game hehe

To Gameranx: I don't see you guys can design better than him or his studio, so don't complain.

GameCents1693d ago

I better not ever see you complain about anything on this site unless YOU have produced a better game/console/studio...mkay?
