The term "cis" is short for "cisgender" or those who feel their gender matched the sex they were born with i.e the opposite of transgender. "Cis" has nothing to do with homo, or heterosexuality. So do please research and understand a term before just reciting a word you read on tumblr.

Also roughly about 10-14% of the USA population is homosexual. 6-8% is bisexual and there are emerging pan-sexual and asexual demographics as well. Given tho... #4.1.1

It's rather unfair to label Evolved as "poorly made" given time and cost restrictions of creating a multi-platform AAA title. You're comparing it to two games which are developed from the ground up for a single system with the same time and cost restrictions as those of a game being developed for two.

It's like a situation with two painters: The first painter needs to create two paintings(one in oil one in acrylics) for two different buildings which h... #9.2

As far as I'm aware, it's 2K that sets the price of the DLC, not the development team in this instance.

It really bothers me when individuals online constantly underestimate the cost and resources required to create AAA quality games. While it is true some publishers do seek to nickle-n-dime, I don't think this is the case with Evolve. According to a development team member, it takes 11 months to make a Monster and integrate it compl... #1.6.2

The indie scene not being larger in Japan is due to a cultural core belief of "for all" rather than "for me".

The people of most eastern cultures have the traditions of placing family and country before their own personal needs. You're still expected to grow up and get a job in the family business, or to get a normal job helping the larger publishers. To sit and say, "I'm going to not get into the family business or uphold family tradition a... #3

Capcom holds all rights to their character, Mega-Man/Rock-Man. In the case of Smash, Nintendo payed Capcom to use the image of Mega-Man for their game. Capcom still holds all exclusive rights to anything produced by the team at Nintendo involving Mega-Man, and have the right to cancel, alter, and redistribute the assets anyway they see fit.

In this case, Sony doesn't need Nintendo's permission to use the image of Mega-Man, they just need Capcom's. Sony probabl... #4.2

I'll be honest as well, the only Dragon Quest I have played was Dragon Quest 8. The demo of the game actually saw me put down the copy of Final Fantasy 12 I was playing and buy it to play instead. I thought it was absolutely charming from its music, to its world, to it's characters.

I do recommend picking it up as the game holds up well today with it's artistic direction and classic jrpg game play. I would love to see a remaster come out just so those who missed... #2.1.2

I would hardly use the words "returning to Playstation" to describe the arrival of a musou-style Dragon Quest.

Not that this musou game won't be fun or enjoyed by others, it's just certainly not the game with "Dragon Quest" in the title I'm waiting for. #2

I feel too much of the conversation is being spent on the question of whether or not Capcom had the funds to cross-develop Street Fighter 5, they could very well have. The question that strikes me is, "Would Capcom have even green-lit a next gen Street Fighter without a partnership?"
.

As Joe said it sold 8 million physical over 3 platforms over the span of 6 years. To a Company the size of Capcom, it could very well be under-performing. They've alrea... #4.1.1

Humanity is already telling stories with better than CG graphics for a long time now--they are called live-action films. Why are they not allowing elements of gameplay tell the story.

Also troubling in the interview are the staggering amount of QTE's he's eluded to. I don't care how well placed they are. They are still doing things like melee based cut-scenes, opening doors, specific powers. Shouldn't we be coming up with methods to engage the player furth... #7

Unfortunately, you have the advantage on this forum since I am limited in the number of comments I can respond with.

Despite your narrow views, there are people being denied their rights and freedoms because they are homosexual--this is the reality. Why? Because society has a very bleak view of homosexuality due to generation upon generation of social stigma.

In this case, it's apt people are questioning a gaming company's decision to not include ho... #7.7

Unfortunately, I feel Nintendo's mind set is that of a toy company--that games are not art and incapable of exploring mature topics like homosexuality. Simply making the option available is a huge stigma to them.

They aren't the only ones who feel this way--queue stereotype after stereotype, but I hope gaming does grow up a bit more in the future. #4.3

There are a few characters in the Persona series who are homosexual and their homosexuality is explored and shown in a very mature light. There is a specific grey haired young man example but I'm blanking on the game and character name.

There is also a transgendered female in the series, and again, it's handled maturely. #3.1.1

Indeed and don't you think that's strange? That the industry will choose a white male protagonist simply because they feel the others won't be accepted?

I'm agreeing the end decision is theirs, but it would be nice to see to someone extend a hand out and say "yeah, this is okay."

I disagree strongly with you. Many people care about the equal representation and appreciation of all races, sexes, and sexualities in games--you are the one that doesn't care.

You use the term "interest group" in a very negative tone--as if to say they just want money, power, and to have everyone pay attention to them. This is an incorrect perspective.

Why don't they make their own games? Absolutely. If the world thinks so poorly of ho... #7.4

Being homosexual is not a lifestyle choice--it is simply who they are. Why shouldn't homosexuals, as human beings, be able to express themselves as completely in games as heterosexuals?

If Nintendo is giving the option to form relationships in the game, why not simply include the option for same-sex relationships? It certainly wouldn't be difficult to incorporate into the game, and it doesn't exclude heterosexual players or deprive them of anything. #2.1

The answer you've given is out of context in a very anti-female slanted manner.

Her answer quoted in your post is the result of the statement of the interviewer: "It seems like from a sponsorship standpoint that there would be a lot of opportunities for a female video game team to hit a demographic that currently is being ignored in eSports."

Remember it's okay in current culture for males to play video games and their sex is never brought... #4.1

"Do you feel like we would see a separate league for females like we do for the WNBA or do you feel like that at some point an all-girl team will emerge? "

"...we've all wanted one and said we should do that...but so many girls are like 'I don't want to play in an all female league..."

Good on these women who do not want an all female league. Segregation of the sexes in competitive gaming means stigmas will continue for these... #5

It's difficult for a game company to release products in Europe due to widely differentiating censorship laws. Yes, you can watch the show but video games are treated to a different standard than TV or film--for now.

They maybe allow the Europe PC version due to the fact the game will be distributed through Steam with no option for physical copy. Steam requires a bank account or credit card, I believe, two things minors have a tough time acquiring. However, because the... #1.1

I would agree—if TotalBiscuit was performing critiques on these games. These are not critiques, however, they are reviews. I understand he constantly reiterates they are not reviews calling them “first impressions”, yet I'm sure data exists showing his videos greatly influence the purchasing decisions of his viewers. If you're creating a video directly affecting consumer awareness about a product based exclusively on if the game works technically on the PC and opinion—it is a revi... #3.1

I understand all the mechanics I've mentioned are favorable as they've all seen success in their respective areas. The issue I have is one of creation. As an artist I enjoy new takes on ideas and experimentation in practice. The selection of the mechanics, to me, is evidence of lack of effort on the developers part. Taking a well established franchise, like Lord of the Rings, and matching it with well established and successful mechanics screams executive decision rather than arti... #2.1.1
