I think it would be acceptable to sell bells for real money but only if the game was free to play…

I'd probably not spend a penny on the game but it might make them more money overall. We already know of at least two F2P games on WiiU so it could be possible!

@TonyHarrison The RAM was more of a difference in terms of definition. The rumour was 2GB, it has 1GB for games and 1GB for the OS. It wouldn't surprise me if they allow more of the OS RAM to be used for games further down the line if it becomes a bit of a bottleneck.

An audience with Syndicate

MattEdWithCheese

6 years ago

I'm 22 and I don't pay attention to many "YouTubers." I'm on a college course with 17 year olds who think that pewdiepie and ksi are incredibly funny with their unique abilities to shout and scream at videogames for a bit...

Had a quick look at one of Syndicate's videos and thankfully he seems to not be completely terrible. He seems to actually be genuine, have a personality and isn't following a specific trends beyond making videos for games people like. None of the "pretending to be scared for attention" or "pretending to be angry for attention" nonsense of the previous YouTubers...

Anyway, rambling again... Maybe he's done a murder or something for me to hate him for...

Lost Humanity 15: Booth Babes

MattEdWithCheese

6 years ago

@ShineDog Of course the portrayal of women in video games is an issue but am I the only one who is able to look past character designs to see the personality or lack of behind them? I thought Samara was one of the series' stronger characters, Aria being even better but I don't recall the same being true for Miranda.

With Other M the buck stops with Yoshio Sakamoto as Samus in that game is as he and he alone envisions her. It was plain to see from the fan reaction that few agreed with him. The response to the Hitman nuns trailer and the fact that IO have now modified the game are showing studios that overt sexualisation of women alone is something that gamers are not interested in. Another good example is the outcry about Duke Nukem Forever's rape jokes.

My point was that the removal of booth babes isn't going to affect this situation. Also, where do we draw the line with what constitutes a booth babe? Is it the clothes they wear? Is it the fact that they are women? Is it that they're attractive? What about if they are qualified in some way i.e. dancers playing a dancing game?

Where I, personally, decided to draw the line was with the exclusive use of women to promote games. I don't see why sexy people of all genders promoting a videogame should be an issue. The second problem as I see it is where people have been hired solely on their looks. It reinforces the gender stereotypes of there being no girl gamers. The women in the game industry should make an effort to be more visible both from the production and the promotional side. I think that in instances where women are being judged solely on their gender, the publishers and developers should speak out against it and similarly, gender shouldn't be a "straw man" argument for a woman to fall back on where there is a legitimate grievance with the work. Oh and that QR code nonsense was so bad, I initially took as a joke...

Are my opinions on the subject completely set in stone? No, I'm open to persuasion from anyone and I seem to be rambling now so I'll stop and see what other people are posting...

Yeah, because telling the women to cover up is less sexist than putting the blame on the men who ogle at them, right? [sarcasm btw] Sure that QR Code thing was in poor taste but that's Virgin Gaming's fault not the women.

I agree with the booth babes & booth hunks sentiment, it's not sexist if it's all genders.

for the series now! Badum-tish!

My favourite quote is from the Metro review:
"If Resident Evil wants to be an action game then so be it, but it needs to be a good one – not this linear, patronisingly simplistic time waster."

That adequately represents my experiences with the demo...
