@s5n8k3: I believe you're disregarding the larger social context of things, as I do think that the un-willful sexual objectification of a person or group (and, more importantly, the celebration of it) leads to more un-willfull sexual objectification of people and said group. The character in this lawyer attorney video game is not choosing to be sexually seductive. Do you not see how the 'choice' is the issue and what is being criticized here? It has nothing to do with whether or not being sexually seductive is wrong or bad. Your assertion that Phoenix Wright's celebration of the human form is comparable to great works of classical art is like asserting that a chicken nugget is a celebration of the chicken. The chicken don't want no part of that celebration son.
@s5n8k3: Are you saying all prudence and decorum stems from religious values? I do not think the desire of people to have their sexuality continuously objectified in media comes from religious prudence. I think its a valid point of criticism when a character has aspects of their design created purely for sexual objectification given the context of a lawyer adventure game. I'm not saying its something people should go to jail for, but its fair game to question the motives behind the creative decisions. To disregard the sexual objectification of women (or in this case, girls) in modern times on the grounds of it being a vestige of religious fundamentalism misses the point entirely. With regards to your Michelangelo question, I truly did not know that the ninja turtles were into sculpting.
@s5n8k3: You do realize ace attorney is a game of fiction and all the characters and their looks are made up? These characters aren't people making their own choices. It is the difference between sexualization via ones own self empowerment and being sexualized by a third party without any say in the matter. You do know cartoons aren't real people, right?
Why is the video quality so bad from GB East. It has been like this in a few videos lately.
Right? i don't know whats up, its hard for me to put my finger on what the issue is
Something seems up with the video quality for this video... not sure what it is, but it doesn't seem like its as high a bitrate or something? Not sure...
Back when i was a kid a teenager with attitude was given cool powers and a giant robot to pilot... now they're just toxic youtube commentors... thanks the internet.
This quick look gave me the fantastic mental image of people using catapults for transportation... thank you!
Oh boy, food talk.
The fried skin of a pig.
Good thing Giant Bomb crew aren't constantly riddled with sickness and weight issues.
ME2 is a monument to gut instinct emotionalism over expertise and strategical thinking in decision-making and this episode is the point on top.
I haven't even watched today's episode... I just like the way you use your words!
