Today Exstetra was finally released in Japan and the first screenshots taken by the users finally tore the veil of secrecy. The protagonist Ryoma can will indeed kiss the male members of this party just as well as the females.
Well, that's one trophy I won't be getting.
Just think of it as a little mouth to mouth resuscitation (wink, wink) ;D
Having your fake character kiss another fake character is too much to handle?
Some people don't find guys kissing guys fun on any level. I don't. I don't hate gays but I don't care to see it. Just because it's 2013 everyone should like it? I respect it but don't expect me to like watching it.
To bx81.....It's a game...not real guys....and games arent even 100% fun all the way through anyway To many guy's these days get turned on from female anmie and whatnot anyway its creepy if you do get turned on by any type of anmie/hentai/cartoon your a freak
Gay men and women watch straight couples kiss/makeout/have sex in virtuaully every form of entertainment on a regular basis. Do you hear about them cringing at every site? No, because just because its not their thing doesn't mean its gross. If just "seeing" that sort of thing bothers you, you might not be homophobic but you do have some unresolved issues with the matter. Most likely social conditioning that for so long told you you should be disgusted by it.
I used to make my character have sex with my brother's character in The Sims just to troll him. Funny times.
Gotta love those virtual homophobs.
Really? C'mon it's 2013. You know what, you're right. If you make videogame avatars of the same sex kiss, it will totally make you a homosexual. /s
And soon it will be 2014.
And it'll be 2015 after 2014. What are you getting at?When I play rpgs I play the way I would if I was actually there. It keeps me immeresed. So me being all heterosexual I won't be kissing any males in the game. Play the way you want to.
jfc kissing other men in a game doesn't make you any less heterosexual. are you really that insecure about your sexuality?
Yes, Noctis. Yes, they are. That's a HUGE part of the "disgust" on display right now: men uncomfortable with anything they don't view as masculine, which makes them have to reassert their own masculinity by going overboard with a display of dislike for something that has nothing to do with them whatsoever. As I said before, it does nothing for me. And if I'm being honest, I'd rather not see it. So what? It doesn't change anything about me. It doesn't hurt me to see it. It doesn't make me gay if OTHER men kiss each other. Hell, if the price is right, I'll get my lips in there, too(the bedroom is a different kettle of fish, though).
I played Mass Effect 2 twice, once as Male Shepard and once as Female Shepard and when I was romancing guys it wasn't as if I was doing it but the character because it fit her story and had no impact on mine in real life.
It's just like watching a movie with a fe-male protagonist that shags another man. So what? Lol.
ahhaha just do it you poonce
What's a Matt's u no kiss good? Damn it! I just got a vita for my son Xmas present. Now I gotta screen gay crap in that too?! It's getting really hard to raise regular type kids any more.
what happened to good old christain values? jks Some of these comment's are ridiculous grow up fellas.....sure you may not be into but its for a trophy!..........btw everytime you kiss a girl just remember where her mouth may have been ;)
well, that's one trophy i'm definitely getting
Original idea for a trophy. Beats, 'Start a new game and get a trophy for sitting through the opening demo', kind of stuff.
Wait, it's out already? How did I let it slip past me?
yes came out hours ago in Japan
What did? The game or the people that bought it?
lol,fujoshis gonna run to buy this game now.
gross IMO but if your into that cool for you. games should offer gay/straight stuff for both sides of the fence
They did this in Skyrim and as usual I click every unhighlighted dialog and I ended up sweating talking some blacksmith that wanted to get married. Lol
Yeah the buff Blacksmith in Riften? lol yeah I hear you can marry that guy thats insane but hey to each their own lol
Yep thats the guy, I was like "ah shit need to reload last save"
I find this vomit inducing but I guess that makes me a homophobe.. Soon theyll have acheivements for male on male anal sex and if I protest, ill be seen as a backwards gay hating savage. Say in 50 years beastiality rights will be at the forefront and if I show my disagreement with such practice I will be seen as backwards. Meh , social conditioning and being enslaved to the epoch of time you've been placed in and what is deemed moral in our era. Im outchea peace
I hope you know this is nothing new. Boy on boy has always had it's place in a lot of Japanese video games, anime, and novels. It popular among a lot of girls. They even have eroges for it. But then again, they have eroges that cater to almost every thing.
Yea I know theres a whole culture of this in Japan. I saw a real good documentary recently about it. Anthony Bourdain Parts Unknown Tokyo. Really informative EDIT: http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Dude, there's a big difference between homosexuality (which is consensual act between two people) and bestiality (which is the rape of an animal). Don't even compare the two.
Looks like I got some disagrees for this. Oh well, I guess you can't educate those who don't want to be educated. I look forward to the day when people will look back and laugh at the idiots who used to compare homosexuality to bestiality. Just like nowadays we look back and laugh at the idiots who wanted interracial marriage to remain illegal because they considered non-white people to be the equivalent of animals.
hell no That promoting B.L fans in Japan lol
I don't really see how this is news worthy? Are people still so dense that the mention of anything gay it suddenly deserves our attention? I don't think we'd be seeing much problem if this were F/F instead. Let's grow up here people.
Read some of the above... narrow-viewed... comments, and you can see why it's still big news. And you're right: if it were two girls, nobody would be complaining... well, except some random feminist. And that's part of the problem: that nobody would have a problem if it were two girls, but make it two men, and everybody just threw up a little in their mouths. I mean, sure, it's not my thing. Don't think it ever will be. But it's certainly nothing so atrocious as to warrant some of the above comments. I mean, it's a freaking kiss, for crying out loud. Not like one guy's bending the other over in the game. The very same comments in here talking about how disgusting it is, erroneously claiming no homosexual activity exists in nature, and pushing forward the Bible as the end all, be all, FOR all, are the indicators that we do, indeed, need to grow up. As a species. Though, more likely, just Western societies.
Case in point: Nobody had a problem when they thought the game was all about straight kissing. But now that gay kissing has been announced, people are grossed out, pretending to vomit, and saying that this sort of news shouldn't be reported on. wtf.
And that platinum went right out the window.
As any straight male i dont like it but i will not be a dick and be offensive about it. Fact is everyone is different and this is something everyone should just accept both sides.
Had to do this for a Trophy in Dragon Age. I guess as much as I accept man to man action, a part of me will always find it nasty even in video games. It's a part of me that will never go away no matter how hard I try.
I won't lie I could not play a game where two dudes are hitting on each other and/or eventually making love or kissing.
And that is perfectly fine. I never apologie for being uncomfortable watching gay activity nor should you. However if i am being offensive about it to gays or towards people that are ok with gays then that is not alright.
Agreed. Flat out disgusting.
George Takei's trophy count just skyrocketed. Well..by one trophy.
Dunno what the big deal is, tbh. I've played some pretty embarrassing moments in videos games in the past (some that I even had to mute because I thought my parents could hear me). A guy kissing a guy is pretty tame by comparison.
