Still like to have the inclusion of buses, AI's that drive motorcycles, multi-npc's in cars, a jump button, all the really crappy invisible walls removed off stupid things like roofs that you can easily access but get stopped by invisible walls (also tons of them on the drive to pawnee), dedicated gameplay mode of team decryption, ability to not join people on 3rd world connections halfway across the solar system, a system to allow me to choose to actually look like the npc that the other players see me as instead of Aiden, ability to turn off invasions without loosing my online progress AND without having to have Uplay in offline mode.

Oh and a reason to actually buy the Season Pass that doesn't have a really simple head swap from camera's to cyborgs, or more stupid flower jumping digital trips.

Anita Sarkeesian is one cute little cupcake.

Proving the point.

Even the cracked article from yesterday's ootb pointed this issue out, and the worse issue that you can't mention it without games flipping their shit in ways more dramatic than anything else can. For some odd reason they view it as a personal attack and get super defensive, irrational, and say the worst misogynistic stuff to prove there's no issue.

Or, people like Cutter who get irate when companies screw him for a profit claim this is fine because companies do it for a profit.

Or maybe your just overreacting to a comment on the internet?

a sexually attractive young woman.
a beloved girl or woman.


Really do we not have better shit to argue about?

Fuck it, both of you go outside without any sort of wifi/internet devices for 3 hours until you both can grow the fuck up.

Whoosh!
Your defense isn't a defense. Again, it's dismissing her by commenting on her appearance. By your own admission. This doesn't happen to men. Men don't constantly hear discussion on their looks.

If every time you made a comment no one responded to it, instead commenting on your sexuality, wouldn't it bug you?

Where's SMA when we need him?

You've never been with a flock of flaming faggots before have ya?

My issue with 'her' is that she is taking it to the extreme, just like that bullshit video of the top 40 males in games at e3.

Does that mean I need to call her out about how gay guys are NOT represented at all except in Sims games and Dragon Age Origins, and a little bit here and there in Mass Effect Games?

But here's the thing. The gaming industry (publisher, developer, consumer) is for lack of better phrasing 'a man's world'. With 1 exception to The Sims franchise which is dominated by females, with MMO's like World of Warcraft, Everquest, having the most female to male ratio. I wish I could find the links for it.

But again I don't give a shit, any more so then I give a shit about gay's or lesbian's in games. I have more important shit to worry about then if some women who is a (right wing/left wing/whatever wing) nutjob, who arguably has a few good points, but are overshadowed by the man hating, and poor research of games.

Just out of curiosity, I'd like to know how many female stripper joints there are in the US, vs male stripper joints.

Holy Crap, Tony Gwynn already? WTF. I remember how famous and loved that man was when I was a kid in the 80s. And I say that as someone who grew up in New England as a Yankees fan.

Rather shocked, as one of the last games I ever saw back in Jack Murphy Stadium, my dad caught a foul ball off of him, and we in the season got him to sign it. Super nice guy, along with Garvey.

Bats I have a question for ya.
I'm a bouncer/security right across the river from Cincinnati Ohio, and last night had to throw out a Police Chief of a large Cincinnati county (hell it IS the county) for buying alcohol for his underage kids after the server told him he wouldn't serve them without ID. Guy was just a dick and trying to explain that in Ohio a parent can buy drinks for their kids (which they can't after an entire day of Alcohol Awareness training via the Horseshoe Casino), and when he said he was a professional with 17 years of law enforcement experience, I asked him what sort of officer would break the law and potentially have us loose our liquor license (we are known for our German Beer Brewing), and he got all threatening and (like my sister) tries to make comments to enrange me and my co-workers.
Granted he's off duty (but still flashed his badge to another security officer), is there anything I can do as we have 3 employee's plus 4 witness's next to him that wouldn't mind seeing a prick like him put in his place.
And let me just say I have a high respect for the majority of cops I have met (or in my family), but when I get a egotistical power hungry asshole like this, I have no tolerance for thhem.

Thanks.

So many people bitching about not enough women in gaming, yet still have no problem with women being treated as sexist objects at E3. Oh I'm sorry they are called 'promo girls' now.

40 males, 4 females. E3 2014.

Girls are most welcome in my video game treehouse, it's not a 'boys only' club.

It was fucking stupid. Yes we need a female Batman/Solid Snake/Sherlock Holmes, who the fuck is going to play them? Fandango Paper Bag Puppets?

Crackdown will have a female choice, same with Dragon Age, Ass Creed will have plenty of choices in multiplayer.

But when you have games on their 3rd or 4th in the series (Batman, Uncharted, Metal Gear) how the fuck are you suppose to just drop the main character and throw in a women?

Friday the 13th, which translate into 'fucking idiots and morons who randomly drop 40 IQ points in 1 day'.


*mumbles* stupid fucking people....

BTW the Falcon only has 1 door and 1 ramp and 1 topside hatch. Considering the door slides open to the cockpit, how did it fall on his leg?

Next thing you know we'll hear about spontaneous combustible ewoks!

It's utter bullshit. Anyone remember the video for BF3 showing they had a ton more QA testers (and whoever was the best got to wear the crappy headwear)?
BF4 comes out and it's a cluster fuck to the point they had to publicly announce that they halted all other DICE projects to 'finish' BF4.

You offer your next BF game at 29.99 for early access as a bonus to help fix the game before launch and I'd be onboard.

Considering the playable character in Far Cry 3 was utter crap, the ONLY way to make a half decent female character would be to rip off Lara Croft from the Tomb Raider reboot.

I mean really the military brother gets killed at the start and this stuck up, self absorbed no skill brother becomes the great white man chosen by the gods to hunt down an entire island's military, hunt animals, and get high and tattoo'd all within a few days/weeks?

'No we couldn't make a playable female character, because who wants to look down at naked tits when we can put them on a perfectly good women... I mean it was that or put mirrors in the game, but with the 'feel yourself up' quick time events it would have pushed the release date back even farther!' -Far Cry 4 Devs

Want to make sure I have this straight... inXile did a kickstarter for Wasteland's 2 that hit it's funding goal (by almost 2 times the original goal), and then they did another kickstarter with the same team (that hit 4 times original goal). So they are working on 2 games at one time with the same team and then are pushing back (after several delays) the first game due to money issues because the game has become to large, and affecting the second game with a much larger budget?

I'm not the brightest crayon in the box, but something just doesn't seem right.
