Who cares about what some idiot thinks at Digital Foundry? Dude will be quickly forgotten about within the next month. Last I checked, a majority of the DF guys and gals are pretty chill. Where the hell was this guy, when they did all those frame rate and video comparison of Bayonetta 1 & 2? His whining and complaining is really not going to change much and be nothing more but a fart in the wind. It's one thing if you don't like the game, but don't be a butthole about it and claim the character is "too pretty" or whatever. Other than that, that's really not much news; just another jerk off whining and biatching on their blog post as far as I'm concerned. So boring and lame.

What's funny to me is he says that "modern audiences" wont like it. But what he really means is "Western Audiences" because obviously the Korean market loves characters like this, look at any other Korean developed game. Tera, Black Desert, etc.

And even "western" isn't the right audience that will have a problem with this....it's another w-audience.

And that other w-audience are inconsequential and don't matter in the grand scheme of things. None of them would be be interested anyway. The ones that do complain will barely be noticeable. And they'll forget about it and move on to something else.

It's a Sony published game.........Sony are now being run out of the San Fran HQ so it's no longer the old "Japan don't care what you think Gaijin" attitude going on unfortunately.

Fuck me, they're making activism into reality tv. Kinda feel this doesn't truly belong in woke, cuz it's got the putrid soulless stink of the cynically corporate all over it. Take something, commodify it, patent it, package it, and sell it. Be sure to buy a t-shirt in the gift shop, only $29.99.

"Character from a bygone era"
"Very distracting"

They're like the first few second on the linked video. So are we playing the game of words don't mean things anymore here?
You characterize that short comment as pushing for [ whatever drivel you wrote ]?

Well, if you're looking at the world through such a hyperbole-filter... That explains quite a bit actually.

Michael Moore's take on the war on Afghanistan.


He's not wrong. A realist would argue we lost so much money, and power fighting that war. A neoliberal would argue we lost credibility for fighting a war we couldn't win, then having to withdraw, a constructivist would argue it shattered the myth of American invincibility.

In the end, Bin Laden won because America became more divided as a result of what Bush did.

Congressmen Barbara Lee who was the most cleared-minded during 9/11 was right.

Oh so we are playing the game of "No those words don't have meaning fart fart fart" then?

It's not hyperbole to point out words have meanings just because you wish they didn't and it would be more convenient for you if they didn't.

Sounds more like he's got an opinion you don't agree with. I presume also that that sun will rise tomorrow.

Well yes he's entitled to be hold an opinion on something that is objectively wrong. I'm allowed to point out it is objectively wrong though.

Do words not have meanings now?
If you want to start a fight, fuck off to a pub and do it like a normal person. One jackanape has an opinion you don't like. You think he's wrong. All is in balance as the world should be. I just object to the word 'objective' being used in the context of discussion of art since art and reactions thereof are basically subjective by their very nature of eliciting emotional responses from human beings.

You know you could happily have said that to the other guy who decided to take umbrage with what I said?

Or do you mean the games journalist who I'm laughing at because he was too distracted by boobs and is upset they don't meet modern sensibilities?
This is the thread for laughing at takes like that. I mean the idea that women's bodies are so offensive and characters need to be edited to modern standards is something the woke lot heavily push and it's hilariously terrible.

Art may be subjective.

It is OBJECTIVELY true that words do have meanings though.

So why was it conservatives and distinctly non woke people that covered up classical topless greek goddess statues in my state?

Oh ho ho ho, Brawl, my good man, don't you know the rules? When conservatives act like frothing lunatics they're just lone wolves that the right wing exiles, but every left wing statement, no matter by who, is automatically the paradigm of that whole side of the political spectrum.

Cause it was 15 years ago and now one side had seemingly become the other. The Puritan of old found they were getting no-where the old way so found a way to push the same crap from the other side just via slightly different wording.

So about all the claims from other people previously of "Fighting fuck toys" and the like?
