Hoping that this is only for the console version, and that those first trailers we saw were of the PC version, which will have the lighting still intact. These two images show the major, major...

Oy f*cking vey.
It's the 25th today, so I guess the embargo or whatever has been lifted... EG have some details and screenshots. No next-gen (PC/PS3/XB360), exploration, hand crafted world, very brief story details....
Dark Signs (and the short lived Dark Signs Online). Essentially they're simulated network environments - you have a Command Line Interface, there's a (Scripting) Language behind it all, and you're...

More or less hilarious than I find the people trying to use it to prove or justify their positions?

That's in reference to the "Test" being applied to Minority representation. He then explains, in the next paragraphs (you did read them?), why it's an issue (applying it blindly to Minority...

Did you even read the article I linked? It covers pretty much everything you said.

I remember I read a good criticism of the use of the "Bechdel Test", specifically related to Anita Sarkeesian's use of it in relation to Oscar nominated movies. Found it again today...
I put about 3 hours in... I made it out of the tutorial, and through that first intro "chapter" or whatnot, onto the boat and then the island, and across the island to the first Pirate Cove place,...
I hope it's still about Pirates. I like Pirates. Change everything else, if they want, especially the combat. But keep the Pirate theme.
ETA: Obligatory, when I mention Pirates...

Because if you don't, the point one is trying to use the "test" or principle to make becomes less convincing. Also, you know, it wasn't me who used it as a "test" to "prove" something... that's what...

But, if you're using the Bechdel Test to make a point, as the Vocativ thing is trying to do, or does, then I don't think you get to pick and choose (for arbitrary reasons) which movies are included....

It's really not a 'study'. IIRC the methodology was somewhat suspicious (why is Gravity not counted on either side? It...
Risen was OK, pretty good, did things somewhat different. Risen 2 was terrible, definite let down when I picked it up (thankfully in a bundle), after having it in my Wishlist since it was released. I...
Working all fine for me, at the moment... Store, Community, and Inventory all loading up fine.

No... it's not EXACTLY like the Witcher. But, it's like the Witcher in that the player character is a pre defined one, not like Skyrim where the player character is sculpted by the player at the...

Yeah, I get that... I was just responding to Mikhel's specific comment about THIS game, not the industry as whole... As in, it turns out this is more of a Witcher situation than a Skyrim one... it's...

It may well be this. It didn't help that the article that started this made the mistake (as have several commenters here) in thinking that there were multiple player characters, all of them male......
20-02-2014, 06:37 PM
Well, I think the thread here was more about the big picture, the representation of women (or lack thereof) across the whole industry.

Or play Spy Party... wait, never mind.

And I can't seem to engage with a topic that hurts me without being mocked by you. Stop posting or keep on being a snide prick, I don't care.

Nice cop out. Bravo.
ETA: Racism/Sexism can and does exist without the power and privilege of groups... People are not (always) groups, they are individuals.

Do you know what I call reverse racism? Racism. There may not be the same aspects of Power and Privilege and the like, but it's still racism. Same with sexism.
And you speak for every person...

Does it not work in Online Mode? I'm guessing it was to prevent the massive amount of abuse of the feature that was likely going on in Offline Mode.

That's NOT a reason to not represent them though, is it? Gay, Lesbian, and bi-sexual individuals make up <6% of the UK population... should they have no representation in games? Should they only...
