Pixels or Death's Mike "Scrimshaw" Potts takes a look at the implications that Batman Arkham City may be sexist, then thoroughly shuts them down.
Wait...people are upset over this? I mean, I could understand the upset if Batman was the one calling women "bitch" and generally being a dick towards female characters. But he isn't. It's the BAD GUYS who say it. Of course they aren't going to care if they hurt somebody's feelings or not. They're BAD GUYS! Do people really think Two-Face (especially the "bad" personality) is going to stop in the middle of tormenting Catwoman and think, "Hmmm...I won't call Catwoman a 'bitch'. That might be considered sexist and might offend her." Of course not! Calling her a "bitch" only emphasizes the fact that he's a baddie.
I don't think 'people' are actually even bothered let alone in "uproar", its just, as usual, the 'Internet' blowing something out of proportion. Uproar, lol...
Anyone who is in an 'uproar' over this most likely does not watch prime time TV where the word 'bitch' is used in great frequency.
Bitch is probably the cleanest word used in some prime time shows lol
people are soooooo sensitive nowadays its just sad. in any given game, someone will find something to bitch about. people like this should just go back to 8 bit games like mario bros and balloon fight. where you play a game with just background music.
Too many 'Kerpows' and 'Bams'
We should route out all these political correctness goons and put them on display for the public to throw rotten fruit at.
I hate when someone thinks he speaks for everyone. Uproar? Whos this guy kidding?
Where's the uproar?
That's what I want to know. I bet it's just him and he's trying to make it seem like it's more than him so he doesn't look like a nutjob.
Sounds like a whimper than an uproar. lol!
What a load of crap. Just another poor site trying to get hits by making up crap. I played it didn't think it was bad I thought it was good that a video game with an adult rating actually used ADULT words. Look at a similar post on that site "Sony Hacker Flees to South America" which is about geohot. Just goes to show that site makes up a load of crap. Who the hell approves crap like this. Id use stronger words than "crap" but the internet might get in an uproar about it.
The "Sony Hacker Flees to South America" article doesn't actually appear anywhere on the site. I'm a bit confused as to what you are talking about.
It was under the add comment the link leads to http://crowdignite.gamerevo...
In which that Sony post isn't even apart of their website. -__-
Blame the devs... no blame bad parenting
This politically correct bullshit (oops I mean poopie for those little kids playing teen and mature rated games), is getting out of hand! No one gets mad when people swear, do drugs, and fuck in movies or on TV, but the moment it happens in a game people flip shit! I can't believe this! How dare evil murderers swear! Geez what's next? People freaking out cuz the bad guys have guns? Give me a break... people who have a problem with this all I have to say is ESRB. You don't like swearing then don't buy a game telling you it has it! I can't believe no one flipped out when the Joker was cross dressing as a nurse in the dark knight if this is the worst the world has to offer us. Geez people... really?!
Its only the B word. i admit maybe they over use the word in the game but its not a big deal. I hear tv shows and movies aired on live TV saying the B word all the time.
