I felt it was kinda forced. Others might not but I felt it was.
If they're offended by a small oversight, I hate to see their reaction to Poison from Final Fight/Street Fighter.Cold Shiny said:They apologize for an element in the game that no one cares about, but they don't apologize for the very disappointing game.
Bioware is terrified of some internet LGBT randos but couldn't give less of a crap about consumer confidence.
Welcome to the internet.altnameJag said:So, just checking, but to be clear, the perpetually offended are being offended that Bioware apologized to a different set of perpetually offended?
I think the problem is people go into Mass Effect with the wrong mindset. As a science fantasy series it has the opportunity to explore a world/universe in which stigmas of current society no longer exist and what effect that may have on how people and society behave.Wrex Brogan said:The weird thing is it could've been solved if they'd just asked a Trans person about it before writing. 'Hey, do trans people ever casually dead-name themselves? No? Alright, cool, thanks', problem solved.
Ah well, was a lazy-game overall from the feel of things, fucking up a simple question isn't surprising.
Doesn't the existence of people who are "blunt and in your face about it" by definition make it realistic? Not representative mind you, but then no one character can ever truly be representative of an entire group.pookie101 said:as someone who is transgender. i have actually met other trans people who are that blunt and in your face about it. i dont know why and im sure as hell not like that but there it is
ah bioware they know better... they did a much more better transgender npc in inquisition that was much more subtle and realistic which also made the character more interesting. they were a fully formed person rather than just token transgender character 702
It is.Happyninja42 said:Except that's not the Mass Effect universe.
Speciesm sure, but there's no evidence racism, homophobia or transphobia amongst humans. The closest is Kaidan's reaction in ME1 when you romance both him and Liara at the same time, and that would barely count as he kinda prefaces it with the Seinfeld "not that there's anything wrong with that".Happyninja42 said:There are examples of speciesm in the game. Humans hating Batarians, that guy on the bridge of the Normandy in the first game, who is very Human-centric in his beliefs.
Not really. Both Ashley and Pressly are examples of the attitudes of isolationism and ignorance, not bigotry.Happyninja42 said:Ashley is also a great example of how the bigotry and narrow mindedness is still alive and well in the Mass Effect universe.
The old fans got an entirely re-written ending; it sounds like they took the complaints seriously. The people calling them entitled were journalists and other game devs not attached to the game.blackrave said:What was responses from everyone when people criticized ending of ME3?
Oh, you're just entitled crybabies.
It's just a game, stop whining!
Don't like it, don't buy it.
What's with all the apologies?
C'mon Bioware, have some consistency, dammit!
Call them entitled, whining, overgrown children and be done with it!
Y'know, like you treated your old fans.
