Gender is irrelevant, its about personality.

I am so bummed out. Of course Vinny should live where he wants but Giantbomb has always been about the awesome personal chemistry that is fun to watch and listen to. Bombcast and live shows will never be the same. Yeah, OK new people will come but getting to know knew people is hard and doesn't always work. For a site like Giantbomb this is a step towards less personality and that is less what I come here from. That might sound like I am jumping the gun, and I might be but when Alex and Patrick moved they both faded from the core of the site. Its naturally hard to interact on a 3 hour timezone difference.

This was really not the news I wanted out of a staff that has been struggling with too little personal for a long time now.

Didn't like Far Cry 3 at all personally and only two years later makes me think it will be very similar, well most people seemed to like that so I can't complain. Not for me probably.

I question the sanity of someone incapable of differing between fiction and real life and you are bringing up politics concerning real life. Senran Kagura is clearly fictitious, it is tonally very lighthearted and there is nothing malicious here. Except that which you desperately try to create. How can they look like very young teenagers when they have fully grown bodies with every feature being exaggerated? They don't look like underage girls, they look like fantasy anime girls. There are several countries (Canada, Sweden for example) that have very strict laws about displaying young girls in all media, yet they allow Senran Kagura. We can sit here and argue semantics if you like, but the 3DS game got a T rating and wasn't banned anywhere so clearly they agree with me.

Just like extremely violent games, people that play these games enjoy it as a harmless entertainment.

The wiki on this very site states that this game was classified as the Japanese equivalent of a 17+ rating. A "T" rating with the ESRB is for 13+. Perhaps the rating changed as it came over from Japan, I don't know. Quite frankly, I don't want to look it up, as I'm sitting in the airport and having these images on my laptop is embarrassing.

The only thing desperate here is the jiggling tits and ass in that fucking trailer. Maybe you're just much younger than me and are still in high school or something, I don't know. But as a 25 year old, those girls look like young teenagers portrayed with an adults sexuality. "Fantasy anime girls" and "underage girls" are not mutually exclusive, and in fact it seems like they are often synonymous.

I was talking about the 3DS game, which is already out, and it got a T rating. Which also got a 17+ rating in Japan.

Funny how I thought the very same thing about you, as I except someone older to be able to understand that people have clear distinctions of what is fiction and what isn't. AND react accordingly. That is why video game violence is fine and NEVER will cause unprovoked violence. Its clearly fiction and even kids understand that. It is the EXACT same thing here. There is no link between a person that enjoy Senran Kagura and one that lust for underage girls. Do underage girls scream big, voluptuous boobs to you? It doesn't to me, and therefor I never see them as very young teenagers. "young teenagers with adults sexuality" You admit yourself that the appeal is the adult sexuality.

As the guy behind Senran Kagura reiterates again and again, the franchise is about happy boobs. Both of those are equally important.

If you want to discuss it further you can send me a PM, there is no point in discussing it here anymore. I have said what I wanted to say. I'll buy the game with a clean conscious and have a great time, you do what you want.

More structured content.

TNT was my favorite feature on the site except bombcast. I still don't think they have come up with anything as fun that I can't wait for each week. UPF is fun, but unorganized and very hit or miss. Its quite telling that one of my favorite moments of UPF in months was Chris Watters bringing Red Faction: Armageddon last week. You could just feel the enthusiasm ooze through the screen. While Brad (don't mean to pick on him specifically but the example fits for last week) just took a newly released game on Steam.

I also think they have significantly less interaction with the community, I loved playing with them on TNT and did it several times. The rest of the stuff they do seem to follow the same structure, play a game and talk some about it (Vinnyvania, Breaking Brad, Daily Dota) I wish for something a bit more engaged. Like Gamespot have The Lobby, that is fantastic. Exactly that format wouldn't work for Giantbomb I think but the point is for something a bit more focused.

Honestly reading that again it might seem like an incoherent mess. I just feel the site isn't what it used to be, as soon as it gets better I will be first in line to resub though.

why does the fact that young boys like boobies upset so many people so badly? Do people actually think they have a right to tell young men what they are allowed to enjoy about sex?

Because it's much more than just young boys who like boobies? And yes, most of Western society has pretty much all come down on the same side of the line that girls under a certain age are off limits to those who have already passed the mark. People are free to enjoy this kind of stuff, and I'm free to notice that it explicitly and implicit has creepy undertones. Not sure why we who find it uncomfortable or inappropriate are just expected to keep our mouths shut...this is a discussion board after all, not a hype page.
