As long as people keep throwing around words like misogyny, the issues this medium has in regards to women are going to continue to be ignored. By pointing the finger at every low cut top or kidnapped girlfriend and screaming misogyny, the real issues are being buried in hyperbole.
I have to agree about the misuse of the word. I have the displeasure of knowing someone who is a GENUINE misogynist, who I have been unable to avoid at certain family functions. There is a world of a difference between objectification and misogyny.
Everyone who plays it thinks its amazing, so I think I'm gonna go with them and not the people who say, "it looks like Call of Duty" and haven't played it. I may not get this game but I feel like the people who actually played are the ones I should listen to.
@sharkethic: eh, if you felt inclined to look up the video after I intentionally made sure not to share the user's name or link to anything pertaining it then that's "your problem". No, the "irony" isn't lost on me as the video has already been discussed, posted, and advertised on gaming sites. If you already knew what was terrible about it but chose to give him your viewership and click then that is completely on you...
You're thinking about balloons aren't you, you son of a bitch! After I expressly told you not to! Well that's "your problem"!
I can think about balloons without having to rush out and buy some.
I can't. Anyone want to buy a metric shit-ton of balloons?
The UI is a little busy for me, but maybe that will have changed. The other complaint I have is the almost constant chatter from command telling you that you are near/at a hardpoint.
I think it looks fantastic, and a hell of a lot of fun, but YES - the UI is pretty overbearing in the alpha, hopefully they make some changes to it. "You pwnd a dude" style text popping up everywhere, intrusive HUD elements, big bars across the screen that seem unnecessary - All things I hope they fix by release. I feel like this is the type of game that could benefit from a very minimal UI. At least give us the option to turn all that shit off.
Either way, I am excited. This looks like a lot of fun. I played a hell of a lot of COD 4, then moved to the Battlefield games and have been there ever since. I am hoping that Titanfall will drag me in.
