Wasnt really sexual at all. It was just their art style and it worked very well. If you where like "OMG boobies" then you need help........

jcosmocohen2872d ago

Nah, I just thought it was weird. And kind of pointless. :)

wwm0nkey2872d ago

I dont think it was pointless there where plenty of old art pieces that had fairy's with boobs

Nudity isn't sexual. I for one support the notion of "topless" fairies, because it just makes more sense if you think about it. Why would a magical species need clothing?

BOOBIES!

When the f'k did sex become a bad thing anyway. No boby cries when a guy has just a rag tied between his legs. I don't want the gaming industry bombarded with sex, but I don't want you freaks telling young men that there is something wrong with getting a boner when they see a womans nice tits and buttie either. We don't live on a gay planet. If they want to have half naked men in game, then darn straight I want to see tits and ass too.

@jcosmocohen: are you Jesus? Even if you are, I would suggest you focus more on naked men in gaming. There are way more of them. Even that Ape in the screen shot needs a pants.

Mild homophobia in your comment aside, I have to agree that people are waaaaay too touchy about nudity/sexuality in games. All hail zipper tech that allows realistic disembowelment, but it's "unnecessary" to show a woman's nipple?

Someday I would like to pinpoint the exact moment in the history of western cultures when morality got separated from common sense.

Bigpappy2870d ago

Nan, there is no homofobia here. There is just a serious double standard. It seems to me that if there is any thing shown of a woman that might reming a male that she is a natural attraction for him, the world seems to condem that sentiment. You can have all the half naked Man on man stuff you want in games, but show skimpy underware or a boob, and some one needs to write an article about how distasteful it is. I just get the felling that there is some kind of agenda here when it come to sex, and it is anti-heterosexual

@bigpappy
Most of the world doesn't mind nudity. It's the silly American prudish beliefs that are the contrary.

it was quite a mature game with many immature people playing it

Do you object to the boobs or the faireys?

jcosmocohen2872d ago

Not really either. Did you read the piece? It's more like me questioning if it's necessary for the game to have it at all, but I also concede that those are my opinions. I then ask others to share their opinions. :)

Reminds me of the Godfather 2....

I walked into this one place and all of a sudden a bunch of topless chicks were walking around. I was almost considering bringing it over a friend's house until I encountered that bit and realized his kids probably would would need some talking to afterward if they walked in on that.

I don't mind if a game has sexual content/references/themes, but when it's done blatantly then it becomes a bit of a plea for attention rather than a mark of artistic expression. I think Bioware handles this type of stuff more maturely than some devs out there.

They are not humans, they don't know what naked is, it's onlysexual if YOU want to think that

Ahasverus2871d ago

Castlevania has had a LOT of topless enemies since the 1986, Medusa, the Succubus, Venus-weed (the plant woman) etc.. it's almost a tradition =P
