  • Here's some of the fine folks you'll meet in Resident Evil 7

  • Kryon 30/08/2016

    @nickbonkersperry I totally agree, don't get me wrong, the graphics look "good" but it's lost every single ounce of charm and character that usually go hand in hand with a RE game. Reply -1

  • Take a tour of Resident Evil 7's disturbing new demo

  • Kryon 25/08/2016

    I'm not impressed really. Graphically it looks mediocre, certainly not the best looking game I've seen in recent years and it seems to have lost all of the charm & quirkiness RE once had. Now it just looks like any other relatively bland 'horror' game. From what I've seen so far on this it's winding up to be a pretty big disappointment for me personally... Reply 0

    @grassyknoll Why would that make me "uncomfortable"? If any dev wants to make a game including digital dicks that's absolutely fine, I won't try to harass them on twitter or socially pressure them into removing it, I'll simply spend my money on something more my flavor. Once again it's a rather simple yet effective concept. Reply +2

    @grassyknoll Ah I see how it works now, I discredited your link so you revert back to labeling me as homophobic or some other kind of bigot in an attempt to once again end the conversation?

    All it does is prove you have no confidence in your argument, but go for it, it's no skin off my nose. BTW, if you want to end the convo with me (as you said earlier) perhaps it would be a wise move not to keep replying to me. I guess even the simplest of concepts elude you somehow xD

    @grassyknoll

    According to The Verge the poll you're citing can't be used to accurately measure anything as people were called on the phone and asked simply if they 'have' a console. They were not asked which member of the family actually owns or uses the console.

    http://www.theverge.com/2015/11/4/9670524/pew-survey-women-men-console-ownership-by-gender-2015

    May I ask you, do you honestly believe that females spend more on consoles and console games than males do? (and we're talking about buying it for themselves, not for their kids, etc)


    Edit:

    "What you don't seem to realise is people who like digital dick & boobs are the size 12 shoe men, the average person doesn't want nudity or sexualization in their game at all."

    Again, do you honestly believe that? I mean sure, those who want digital dick are probably a minority, but I think it's pretty obvious that sex sells, just look at Hollywood (or any other industry) for an example of that.

    @grassyknoll Well, I'm sure that if women and/or gay guys became the main consumers of console/PC games then their wishes would be taken into account far more often.

    But think of it like this, you're a cross-dressing guy with size 12 feet. Do you think that all ladies shoe shops should have to stock size 12 stilettos just to accommodate you? Or is it more realistic to realise that you're in a minority and hence the majority of ladies shoe shops might not cater specifically to your needs?

    Sure, it may seem unfair if you happen to be a cross dressing male or a woman with really big feet but It's not done out of hatred or bigotry, it's just supply and demand, and it's the same with any market, including the games market.

    @droflahn Sure, if women are the target demographic for a game and the majority of them wanted it then I'd have zero problem with guys being objectified in said game. It's just polygons, I don't see how it could in any way negatively effect my life. So why not? Reply +1
  • Kryon 18/08/2016

    @grassyknoll Lol "person X has a different opinion to mine, therefore I must never speak to them" but yeah, I get it, I mean, labeling someone a bigot to shut down a conversation is much easier than defending your flawed arguments. Cool, no problem. Reply -2
  • Kryon 18/08/2016

    @grassyknoll There really isn't a double standard though. If you go and check out some media aimed at women you'll find plenty of male sexual objectification, likewise if you check media aimed at men you'll often find depictions of sexually objectified women. The only double standard is that the former doesn't seem to ever be an issue whereas in contrast the latter is seen as something that's wrong/harmful and should be changed... Reply +2

    I also find it pretty sad all the people complaining about this guy and Kojima's justifications for their artistic choices. Sorry, but if you hadn't created this feverishly puritanical social climate then maybe these guys wouldn't feel they have to make up these justifications to try and dodge the deluge of virtue signalling twats on twitter calling them "misogynists/sexist/ect"...

    You want them to "just admit what their game is", why? So you can call them some more names, label them and feel all superior on that oh so crooked high horse of yours? Why don't people just ignore developers who don't cater to their temperament and focus support on the devs that do? There's room for both you know...

    For example, I'm very happy that games like 'Life is Strange' exist, I'd rather drink petrol than play it, but I'm glad it's there for those who want it, and I'm certainly not going to start harassing the devs on twitter and try to socially guilt them into changing the game to be more to my liking. The game isn't aimed at me, and I totally understand that. It's a shame others can't seem to grasp this idea so easily...

    @grassyknoll It's not about whether a feminist is 'less or more likely' to play. It simply stands to reason that if only a relatively small section of the population identify as feminists then overall you're not going to find many feminist who play videogames, in comparison to non-feminists who play.

    "I love how you believe your perception is reality."

    Well considering only 7% of Brits and 18% of Americans identify as feminist I'd say his perception is pretty accurate.

    When you say "western sensibilities" what you really mean is "western feminist sensibilities", they're not even close to the same thing. It's extremely sad that creatives feel they have to dumb their output down to cater to a minority of self entitled whiners who have no interest in buying these games either way (They just don't like the idea of anyone else playing them for some unknown reason).

    Catering to these people isn't wise, just look at the colossal flop Ghostbusters 2016, it's aimed at exactly the kind of people who'd complain about fictional videogame boobs, yet nobody wants to see it. Cater to your actual fans, ignore the crybabies with nothing better to do than try to police what other people consume.

Yes, being called "it" as a trans person is going to be pretty insulting, but I really wish people would stop trivializing serious conditions/issues because they've been slighted in some way.

    Gotta love it when you do most of my work for me
    No probs, Sugartits, I find it most gratifying helping the mentally inept to fulfill their goals.

    Now, on your way, stride forth to send abuse (in your words) to all who disagree with your political views, you're truly a paragon of virtue! Let the abuse you unleash be the one true shining light of Tumblr feminism and social justice! Keep up that virtue signalling and maybe one day females will start to look at you without the sneer of pity and disgust you usually seem to garner from them! (P.S. That last bit is extremely unlikely but it's good to have hope...)

    As for being abusive, well that's what people like you deserve
    Your first logical fallacy; a straw man. People like you, misogynists who feel social justice is bad, are deserving of disdain. Only you are generalizing that sentiment.
    You do realise that "disdain" is a different word to "abuse", right? It's just you seemed to be using them interchangeably here? So, do people who disagree with your politics deserve "disdain" or do they deserve "abuse", which one is it Skippy? It's OK, I know words are hard for guys like you. :(

    You can call me a misogynist, but then I could just as easily call you a paedophile. Who cares if it's true or not, right? As long as it silences any dissenting voices, it's OK to use, right?

    the gators who attacked Sarkeesian and Quinn resorted to far more than simply using profanity.
    Oh, I see, so sending abuse to Anita and Zoe would be totally acceptable as long as it's just profanity, amirite bro? Lol, seriously, you're an idiot mate. :lol:

    You Tumblr crybabies are all the same, but here's a tip for the future, try to actually refute peoples arguments using logic and facts instead of using your default response of "They disagree with me and know I'm a cretin = They must be misogynists"

    Let's have a quick look at your post history:
    Translation: "I've lost this debate miserably and made an utter tit of myself, let me desperately scuttle off to dig up something completely unrelated from many years ago to derail the current discussion, maybe I can save a little face that way..."

    Seriously though, as for you spending your Saturday night trawling through 5 years of my comments, well, what can I say, I hope you had a great evening pointlessly sifting out irrelevant soundbites from years ago. While you were doing that I was drinking a light & zesty white wine, eating brie on crackers and playing Borderlands with my other half, fun times. :)

    "As for being abusive, well that's what people like you deserve"

    I see, so anyone who has a difference of opinion to yourself "deserves" abuse? Interesting, so I guess you're just the same as those who send abuse to Anita Sarkeesian or Zoe Quinn? Right? How do you feel about that? I mean you claim to hate "gators" as you call them, yet you seem to share their alleged abusive nature down to a tee...

    Honestly man, I don't really like using personal insults, but you're clearly not particularly intelligent. In the future you should probably try to pick your fights a little better, maybe start off in a bronie chat room and work your way up? Yeah?

    Changing/censoring/cutting parts out of media to "fit" different cultures is not a good thing. For example I'm a big fan of world cinema, because I like to see those differences in culture, writing, and social ideas played out in film, even if the values displayed differ from my own.

    The people who've created this hostile climate whereby publishers feel they're walking on eggshells in regards to what they can (and more importantly, can't) release are no friend to gamers or people who enjoy art/media of any kind.

    The saddest part is that the SJW protesters on Twitter and feminist gaming sites like EG, are just a vocal minority. They don't actually represent the views of our society at all. You only have to look at the dislike ratio on a Sarkeesian video to see how actual gamers feel about the puritanical narrative that's currently being pushed.

    "I sure do have fetishes, but not being a straight guy they're a little harder to indulge, unfortunately."

    Really? Surely, it just depends what medium you're talking about. The "romantic" novel industry is largely "by women for women", and often the the cover art for such novels objectifies men to a similar extent as certain video games objectify women, but generally you don't get guys complaining that they're not catered for in that medium.

    It's great to know that the "progressive" gaming press and like minded dimwits here in the west are actually preventing us from getting games now, good job guys, now you can return to SJW-HQ and continue your mutual masturbation.

    And for those saying its purely a financial decision, the first and second iterations of the franchise both sold far more copies in the west then they did in Japan.

    While this isn't a game I'm personally interested, this is still bad for gamers, but oh wait, it doesn't matter because gamers are dead, right?

    "Just a hunch"

    Yes, it is just a hunch, a pretty naive one, but hey, you go girl!

    "Maybe you'll be lucky and they'll let you get a glimpse of Dhalsim's left butt cheek in the fight intros."

    That comment seems rather homophobic, you seem to be using an interest in the same sex as some kind of pejorative slur or insult? How very "progressive" of you.

    "Also please don't try to suggest that Cosmopolitan and the like objectifying men permeates the social conscious blah blah blah feminism 101 blah blah patriarchy blah blopity bloopity blah, etc..."

    Either objectification is wrong or it isn't. It may effect women to a larger extent, but if it is as damaging (as people of your "persuasion" generally assert it is) surely it is wrong if done to anyone, regardless of gender. Double standards are generally at odds with equality kiddywink.

    @albertino Because "target demographics" are a thing, and there's absolutely nothing wrong with that, society in general doesn't seem to have any problem with media aimed at females (like Cosmopolitan for example) sexually objectifying men, it's only when media aimed at males does it that it seems to become an "issue" with a certain sect of PC brigade crybabies.

    @SteadyBarker Wow you spend a lot of time writing sermons to protect your alt account, but if you cannot see the difference between UFC and WWE Divas then you're a complete idiot. I don't think I need to say anymore, anyone who is reading this conversation can go watch a women's UFC fight and compare it to a WWE Diva show and they can form their own opinion on it. I'm not a nutjob zealot so I'm quite happy to let people have their own opinion on this, but I'm pretty sure anyone who views the two opposing "fights" would clearly see a massive difference. Good luck to you, lil guy :) Reply -2

    @SteadyBarker Wow, that's some serious mental gymnastic you've had to perform right there to try and justify the the absolute hypocrisy of your overlord Tom, nice try, but everything you've just said is complete nonsense. Well done.

    Also comparing the UFC to WWE Divas is quite possibly the most stupid thing you could do. UFC women are fighters, they're there to win they *do* have agency. WWE Divas are by and large there to "look hot", it's really quite different, and as someone who seems to spout the normal feminist "logic" I find it almost inconceivable that you would try to make this argument. Quite frankly it's laughable.

    Also you really have no leg to stand on with this little snippet:

    In a world where EVERYONE is semi-naked, it'd be mightily sexist to say the women shouldn't be.
    Because, according to you and your ilk, the males in wrestling represent a male power fantasy, whereas the women represent a male sexual fantasy. It must really be painful when your own feminist logic bites you on the bum, but seriously, I'm happy, because I know not to take you seriously from now on, you're just the same as all the guys you call misogynists, you are the proverbial pot calling the kettle black, and it's DELICIOUS! xD
