Lead writer Rhianna Pratchett says that Lara Croft's days of being sexualized for marketing purposes are, "very, very much in the past."
“She’s strong, she’s capable, she’s empathetic, she’s intelligent. She’s all kind of things we think of as sexy in the real world. So it’s not like she’s not a sexy character, but she’s just not sexualized, which is the difference.” Last i remember, meaning of sexy is sexually attractive or a very beautiful girl. Not strong, not capable, not empathetic. Those are not the meaning of a sexy girl, those are the meaning of a strong willed and kind woman who care for others. But that doesn't mean sexy. I don't go to a strong/capable/empathetic woman and say 'Hey, you are Sexy!' , i would say ' Hey, you are a great person full of heart who care for others.' But from one person to another, the interpretation of 'sexy' might differ. If i see a sexy woman in front of me, my response would most likely be... http://gifrific.com/wp-cont...
She's like the Terminator or Wonder woman and can't be stopped @Activemessiah that's what's they said in the IGN video review lol she was overpowered like the Terminator.
"I need your clothes... your boots.. and your tombs"
idiot devs are idiots ...ok , they say there s no sexualization of Lara, then why the didnt made Lara wiht a uni-brow , a bit fat ass with moles on her face ??? lame devs are lame and their words are hypocritical as hell...i m totally in support of ultra sexy character in videogames ..its a product to escape your imagination from reality and not a product to censor your art-expression-imagination in order to not dissatisfy uneducated non-gaming people...
@Dark - everyone has a different perspective on what sexy is ti them. I a guy that I find a girl who plays video games and ride motor bikes sexy regardless on how they look.
Its no longer about making Laura sexy, its about making her a mass murder like Nathan Drake. Oh and occasionally she does stuff with Tombs... Also, disregard all the orgasming she does whenever she gets stabbed with something, which seems to happen repeatedly nowadays. Also, disregard the attempted rape that happened in the first remake written by this writer. Also, disregard the fact that the other game was basically torture porn. Yep, Laura is a strong, independent woman now. Because we all know having large breasts means you can't be those things. /s
“She’s strong, she’s capable, she’s empathetic, she’s intelligent" Its funny the old Lara was like this but I guess her boobs make it all invalid
Well to be fair, she's still young in these games... her chest will grow, give them time.
Don't expect much with Rhianna in the lead, unless someone creates a mod for the game.
No large breasts, but maybe you she will write another attempted rape scene into the game and then pretend its not an attempted rape.
All that needs to be said, is that this is exactly what i expected to hear from Rhianna. Lara was both sexy and awesome in the past, but we're living in an age of different agendas now. It's certainly dissapointing to say the least.
This new reboot isn't sexy at all. She kills tons more people and more visciously too as well as gutting animals. Sorry but this writer has it totally backwards. The language is also worse. None of those things are sexy. They should bring back the classic outfit and knocks le outfits of all types. The can be heroic. Classy. And sexy at the same time. This reboot fails to capture her as the heroine she was. Still a decent game, but sexy? Definitely not.
Lara wasn't a heroine she was a straight up glorified murderer lol.
I'm glad, she's a character i can take seriously now, although I wouldn't mind if at some point the games took a lighter tone like the previous ones.
I personally like the new Lara over the old.
If this was a PS4 exclusive, she would've been sexy. But oh well, square dropped the ball on this one
I think feminazi's want all men to be castrated without natural hormones attracting them to beautiful women.. She can be lesbian but not sexualized because that will make these feminazi's happy.. Most of which are little more than man haters.. Real feminists put thier lives at risk for the benefit of humanity.. Not neuter gaming.. They best not destroy this franchise later on.. Its a damn good game and i hope it stays that way before activists find something else wrong with it.. Well Laura, ill be seeing you next year sometime on the PS4 since we have to wait.. Getting greased by M$ was a terrible move to your fans..
Yes, because making her physically appealing somehow takes away from her intelligence and what not. Absurd. Why not just go all the way and make her a fat pimple face heroin. There is nothing sexy about this character, imo.
