Random. Everything else about this game is, so might as well have the damsels follow en route.

Lady, out of elimination.

I don't like dogs, and that dude's giant bow tie is incredibly unappealing.

The pug is the funniest thing about the game. It may as well be the only choice.

Dogs. Aside from the fact that I like dogs, their "help" sound is, to me, easier to hear than the other versions.

Oh fucking hell. A damsel is an unmarried woman (usually of noble birth). For Christ sake people.... A man and a pug can not be a damsel by definition.

They're explicitly referred to as "damsels" in the game. Take the semantics up with the developers.

I go random. I would pick the pug, but I can't possibly be expected to save every damsel, and if I'm going to let some die they're gonna be people.

I have trouble hearing the dude call for help, so it's always the dog or the lady. Generally the lady.

Random. Not the same one every time makes it a little more interesting to me.

Pugs everytime! It's too cute to not save.

#12 Posted by Itwongo (1198 posts) -

Random, but if that wasn't an option, pugs.

And "bully" used to be an affectionate term for a loved one, "sinister" meant left-handed, and "gay" expressed that you were full of joy.

Words and their meanings are only important so long as you understand what's being said. A puppy being a damsel in distress isn't going to bewilder anyone.

The pug is the only thing that has ever loved me.

If you don't pick the pugs, you're a bad person.

Pretty much my choice and line of reasoning as well.

I sometimes play splitscreen with my brother in law. Since my sister is around and she would approve of the pug but not the lady or the man I keep it on pug so I don't have to change it when they're around.

I'm currently using pugs on the PC version and the ladies on the Vita version. Dunno why the difference... keep things fresh I suppose?

A dog's love is forever. So pug it is

I chose the woman, to avoid promoting the blatant sexism and gender stereotypes.

Lady. I hate dogs and the guy just looks really fugly/creepy to me.

#27 Posted by TheHT (11250 posts) -

Random! Share the love.

PUPPIES!

Woman because I like reading fanfics and imagine it's IRL.

#30 Posted by fisk0 (4106 posts) -

I go random. Would pick cat if it was available, but I'd never want to sacrifice or whip them if there were cats. :(

#31 Posted by WelshCleats (34 posts) -

Random, all the way.

Dog.

The lady looks like she has a black eye and a bloody nose, and the dude looks like a male stripper and it creeps me out a bit.
