I mean, are you sure? Its not that uncommon for a girl who ends up with triple Ds at 13 to get reduction surgery. Plus, no amount of sports bra can hold back a really big set so how would she even learn to fight like she does with a huge set? Those things bouncing around hurts with normal exercise, let alone punching and kicking.

The devs weren't lying and the ethics committee was real? It wasn't a ploy to sell more copies?

Like seriously, you can't just pretend it's not happening and it isn't real, just because it's unpopular and people are mocking you. If you do that, you're more interested in what people think of you more than anything.

Whatever, just wash your hands.
First they take away your video-game bazongas, then they cut off your balls and make you carry womens' purses. FIGHT FOR THE BOOBIES!
QUICK! Someone give this man 5 CCs of SENRAN KAGURA!

People were being irrational. And you're being irrational right now by claiming that, what, people were "wronged" and "maligned" over this! Are... are you serious?! :ROFLMAO:


Yeah, how are those bigger than they were in Remake? Maybe my eyes aren't as uniquely trained to spot miniscule size differences in CG boobs, but they look pretty much the same size. I'd actually say they look tad smaller than Remake. Can't believe I'm having this stupid conversation.
So what's the rational basis for making her boobs smaller initially then if everyone objecting were the irrational side?

I remember when Houseman was crying about the "smaller boobs and the Square ethics committee". This is a nothing thread and nobody gives a damn. Only pathetic losers with nothing better to do with their lives will cry about a digital woman for daring to have "smaller breasts". She ain't your personal doll and Tifa would not give a rat's ass about any of these losers, if she were real.
Cue the Brawlman insulting people despite him being the one here getting mad that people don't share his exact views again it seems.

We wanted Tifa to have abs, so she has an athletic body type. The ethics department at Square Enix also told us that we had to tighten her chest as not to get unnatural during all the intense action. From there we got the black underwear and fitted tank top. — Tetsuya Nomura, 2019
You can read the full interview here

There may however be a legitimate business reason as to why SQUARE ENIX’s Ethics Department has gotten involved like this. Sony is cracking down on the amount of sexual content found on its platforms, something that I explored in great detail in my ‘Censorship in Gaming and Sony’ blog. In it, I refer to a Wall Street Journal articlethat discusses this issue, in great detail, so I won’t go into great amounts of detail for you about that, purely so I don’t repeat myself too much. I will leave one paragraph that sums up some of what was discussed in the article, in my blog;

In it, one spokesperson gives the poor excuse that these new policies were implemented so that gaming does not inhibit the growth of young people (which I paraphrased for you). This is all fine and dandy, but what every game in this blog has in common is that they are very clearly marketed as mature games, which is recognised by rating boards, XBOX and PC. They are not intended for young people. It is up to parents/guardians to teach their children that what they see and do in games is not real and should not think it is ok for little Timmy to mow-down the class, celebrating with Fortnite dances, and expect them to come back to life via the ancient art of teabagging. They shouldn’t get scared shitless when they see something grotesque or sexual either. — Daniel Mayfair, 2019


Who cares either way. No need to go all incel or puritanical. Who’s to say what’s “realistic” either. Plenty of non sexual, homely looking women on earth with back-straining titties that’d make Tifa’s OG’s look like pimples.

There is no rational or irrational basis behind that decision, only the one in charge deciding what the final design will be. The design in question having large boobs. Now if you want to compare those who cried over large boobs not being insignificantly larger, to those who laughed at them in return over this tantrum... I'm sure you can gage the answer.

Nope, that's you and only you. I'm just pointing out pathetic losers with nothing better to do with their lives, nor form actual positive relationships of any kind on their bullshit. It's called git dud on being a decent human being, and not living on Twitter/YouTube rage bait 24/7. Live with it, or is it too personal for you? If it's, that's a you problem.

Gonna be real here. This seems like bullshit. As far as I can tell she looks exactly the same size in both games.

My partner was a 32F for a long time, so I have a pretty good idea what that looks like, and since we're all apparently cool with just airing our weird sexual baggage in public here I won't bother concealing it. I'm super into that, to the point it's kind of a fetish rather than a preference (literally the most cringe and boring fetish I have). I think about and focus on boobs a lot.

But real boobs are not balloons that sit on a person's chest. They are made of soft tissue, so they are shaped by clothing and gravity. Because of this, it is very difficult to guess a person's bra size from how they look because the same person can look completely different from one outfit to another. Someone in a sports bra can look like they have less pronounced and flatter boobs because a sports bra is meant to compress all the tissue down and stop it jiggling around. Push up bras make boobs look bigger by making them stick out more and emphasizing the parts which are visible in clothing. Swimwear doesn't have the support of an actual bra so has the opposite effect. Tifa doesn't look exactly the same in each outfit, but real people don't either.

Like, I don't look at Tifa's sports bra outfit from the previous game and think "oh no, they made her boobs smaller." I just think someone designed her to look like a ridiculously stacked person in a sports bra. That shit's hot. That's the kind of high-effort perversion I can respect.

So yeah, this just looks to me like an attempt to gain cheap publicity by pandering to people who have spent very little time around real boobs and want female characters to look like beachball chested anime titty monsters rather than actual people, or who see a lot of Ds after a number and experience neuron activation while having no idea what it actually means.

So what's the rational basis for making her boobs smaller initially then if everyone objecting were the irrational side?
Yeah, I'm going to agree with Shinji here. They didn't.

Is it "My side rational yours irrational because I say so" ?

You've already done it here though.
Also really I'd be careful because it looks very much like a pot calling the kettle black in here or is that too personal for you, or did you not read this because you're watching another 1 hour plus video by the Toasteaters or whoever it is you keep linking videos of in various threads. Or is that too personal for you?
