Editor's Note: This article contains vulgar language.

Fat Princess has garnered a lot of attention when it debuted at E3. The startlingly violent PSN multiplayer game got accolades from gamers and critics alike for its unique premise and appealing gameplay. However, not everyone is happy with Fat Princess.

Shakesville (picture, above) notes that the title furthers inappropriate gender stereotypes and continues the culture of ridicule that many overweight individuals must suffer through. "Anyway, congrats on your awesome new game, Sony. I'm positively thrilled to see such unyielding dedication to creating a new generation of fat-hating, heteronormative assholes. It's not often I have the opportunity to congratulate a cutting-edge tech company on such splendiferous retrofuck jackholery. Way to go! The Fat Princess of Shakes Manor salutes you."

Feminist Gamers has a suggestion: they want the game to avoid making the princess become fat with cake. Instead, there are other non-"cute" ways of going about this, in terms of gameplay: "So how about layering, Karamari-style, a bunch of random shit on top of the chest, like shrubbery, rocks, bison, etc, that would also weight it down. That could be cute, and silly, and not reinforce nasty stereotypes about women and the obese."

I don't know about you guys, but this only gives me more of an incentive to buy this with it comes out. Your thoughts?

Was the other topic deleted or something? Kind of odd that they would censor a... finger.

Yeah I really worry about some people sometimes - do they really have nothing better to complain about? What about the 28 million child slaves that still exist in the world today? Who cares - THERE'S A GAME WITH A FAT PERSON IN IT!!!!!!

They know there argument is shit, which makes it even more funny. The fact that blog comments have been disabled proves that point pretty well.

I'd rather have a skinny, implant-enhanced Princess who spews up food faster than you can feed her and instead of carrying her from the enemy's castle on your back you just blow real hard and let the wind carry her. That'd please the feminists wouldn't it?

Wow. This is why ReTarDedFisHy doesn't date fat fishies. She's obviously offended... it's just a game, a joke nonetheless.

I just don't feel bad for people that get upset about something most of them can control. I doubt 100% of fat people actually have a glandular issue. You're suggesting that putting in something factually true (that cake is fattening) is backwards thinking just because you for some reason take offense to something you don't have to look at, hear about, or even THINK about?


I think this women (who obviously doesn't take care of herself even if she does have a glandular issue) should promptly make herself seem more intelligent by just shutting up.

This brings up a good point that I didn't even consider. Feminists get all menstrual when there are "idealized" women in games, and now when there's a fat one, too? There's just no pleasing people.

Think she would give a fuck if it were a fat guy? Double-standards be damned.

I'm not quite sure what exactly offends her. She herself is calling fat girls 'unloveable human garbage' while the game is about 16 players fighting to rescue their princess out of devotion regardless of her looks.

When aren't they?  If they don't create some kind of ridiculous drama, then people will forget they exist.  Just smile and pat them on the head, they'll scream themselves silly and take a nap, much like a small child.

I'm not going as far as to say feminists have no argument, or that I don't care about their argument, but the fact is that it's a videogame.  Reinforcing stereotypes is kind of what they do most of the time.  Whether it's fat women, those wily Russians, war being honorable, etc.  It's a form of entertainment, and it need not be politically correct.

The whole point of the game is to RESCUE the princess. They aren't making fun of her in the game. In fact the soldiers are giving their lives and dying in gruesome ways in order to save her and return her home.

Feminists need to get a grip, and I agree getting fat is your own fucking fault, I mena right now I ahvne't done any sports in like a year so I've lost all my muscle mass and am now just pudgy overweight, but i know its my fault and I've resumed exercising recently because of it I don't fucking complain like all the fat people campaigning for larger airplane seats and seats at the theater, people jsu tneed to realize that just because there are nowadays a lot of fat people (especially in america) beign morbidly obese is not ok.

Feminists get mad at anything. Any other group wouldn't give a shit.

You could call this game Fat Ass Dick Suck Lumberjack and would the lumberjacks be up in arms? Of course not.

...Well maybe if they were FEMINIST LUMBERJACKS.

Most feminists are psychologically impaired, or neglected of affection from males.  They are all insanely illogical and energetic.  They never seem to shut up or stop wearing pink (at Temple University) and they picket over the most moronic things (aka this).  I want to grab a pimp glove, line up all the feminist morons int he world and slowly walk down the line.

there'd be no issue if it was called Fat Prince. Feminists are fucktards. I am all for both sexes being equal, but they won't be happy until men are enslaved.
