The compulsive need for developers to make their female characters overly sexy tends to detract from people immersion, especially when they're wearing what amounts to a metal bikini to a freakin' swordfight.
Mmm yes boobs. Wait what were we talking about?
Virtual ones. You can't touch them.
I just want to know who the heck disagrees with "Hurray boobs!"? For real?!
The gays But boobs are super
Maybe flat chicks do lol.
Never played a fighting game for realism.
boobs are common place everywhere else in the world except the USA...so i am surprised that these scantily clad ladies haven't garnered more attention in the media....over the top violence is cool, but side boob is blasphemy, while its opposite in places like Europe
I like boobs, big ones.
There's too much text in this article and not enough boobs.
Here's a couple of great tits for you: http://www.stripersonline.c...
'LOL' at all the disagrees. I suppose it's true when they say the number of female gamers is on the rise.
How can someone disagree with boobs?
Gay people disagree with boobs because they can only touch moobs.
"The compulsive need for developers to make their female characters overly sexy tends to detract from people immersion..." I don't know about everyone else, but it is not always my goal to 'immerse' myself into the world of a particular game. This is especially true for fighting games. I'm immersed in combos and timing things correctly, I hardly even notice the outfit my character is wearing. My focus is on executing combos, not walking a day in Ivy's overly seductive shoes haha
distracting your opponent is a good way to win a fight and I for one would be terribly distracted by a girl with little to nothing on.
Seriously, I'd be like... "Hug it out?" And probably get shanked
"There are the business reasons; a game with a scantily-clad woman on the cover automatically tells potential female customers that the game is intended for guys, and the developer immediately loses half the consumer base" You hear that, porn directors? YOU'RE LOSING HALF YOUR CONSUMER BASE. Better start putting more men on your DVD covers! Seriously, dumbest shit I've read all day. "Gaming as a whole might attract less negativity for all the sex and violence if it becomes contextually appropriate and doesn't feel shoe-horned in just because. " How is this any different from other visual media? Who cares?
Yeah. Who really wants to play "Politically Correct: the Game -- Realism Collector's Edition"? And we still have brothers running around with birds in their afros (FFXIII) and Latino bowlers saying stuff like "I'm gonna roll this like a taco!" (or whatever that short guy says in High Velocity Bowling), and we're really gonna focus on bikini boobs? F' outta here...
I wonder if the author of this article is suffering from some sort of mental retardation. He posted this long and boring bitch rant about how women are portraited as sex objects, a subject nobody gives a damn about obviously, then he proceeds to frame it with pictures of epic boobs and half naked babes as if to prove his point. WTF?
Gimme more Boobs any day! I don't mind.
What do you mean a distraction?, think it's the main reason gamers' even buy the game. No normal guy's going to turn down boobies, real or CGI.
Apparently N4G is not a good place to discuss women rights lol..:P
ivy is a problem yeas , but what namco did to talim, and sophitia in soul 4 is something out of this world thank god the outflit is more usefull than the previous
These articles crack me up. Guys are just as ridiculous looking in games. There always super jacked ripped Fiabios. lol for example God of War or Marcus Fenix from gears. Any fighter game that has sexy exaggerated girls has equally exaggerated males. They just don’t have bobbies.
