2013 the year the female gender became taboo.
Seems like any and everything with a woman in it will be eye'd and then scrutinized, it's way past ridiculous as it seems like you can't do SHIT! to a woman in videogames these days.
Kill a woman brutally - let's discuss this
Design a sexy woman in a sexy outfit - let's discuss this
A woman isn't in a position of power - let's discuss this
A woman isn't a main or optional playable character - let's discuss this
A woman is talked to or about in a harsh manner - let's discuss this
I couldn't imagine the reactions we'd see if Team Ninja went ahead and made another DOAX or Konami made another Rumble Roses, or Grasshopper made another Lollipop Chainsaw, it seems like whenever a woman is center stage we have to have a discussion about it.
Now you notice that I didn't make male comparisons here, well, that's because if I did I would get yelled at and told that's not the point, so I won't do it, I would have but I won't, i'm sensitive and don't like being yelled at. -_-
If I could cut my addiction to NeoGAF and Giant Bomb I would and just stop visiting but I can't. I guess we're entering the "No Sexy Fun" age.
Rumble Roses, really? C'mon, son.
I'm sorry Patrick, but there was more to that post than HURR RUMBLE ROSES. You clearly either didn't read his post, or are just trying to dodge the real content of this post.
He has nothing to explain. Nothing that Patrick has ever written has ever been so exaggerated as what that user posted. Maybe that thing with the FGC, but the quoted user diminished what was happening there so much that it's really fucking insulting to her.
I'm am just fucking angry that I have to defend Patrick for all this bullshit. I cannot stand the prick in so many ways, but this time he's totally in the right, and yet still a bunch of people refuse to read the article and attack him or exaggerate his position to the point of absolute absurdity.
Almost no one here is arguing the points the people in the article have made. They're just arguing semantics and principle without any basis for either of the items BECAUSE THEY GLOSSED OVER OR HAVE OUTRIGHT NOT READ THE PIECE.
