The soyboys are going to eat this up.
The voice.I mean is a first person shooter what difference will it make...
It's more annoying that they make a big deal about it, we had Metroid Prime a million years ago, we also always have female protagonists, etc. Acting like this is a breakthrough, when the conversation behind the scene was more in the linenof, let's get rid of that cis white bro dude.Not cool if she is not black asian lesbian too.... I don't care too much but cmon
Why do you even feel that strongly about this?https://www.gameinformer.com/2021/0...ector-opens-up-about-a-possible-female-slayer
Oh god no. More forced female lead characters, gender equality, sjw and feminism bullshit. I really hope this doesn't become true. Fuck female doom guy, or doom girl. Why change something that ain't bad and broken?
What do you think? Would you like to see a female lead in Doom?
Why does impact = negative? What if they leaned into the fact that women and men are different strengths? They could keep all the punching and ripping with your arms for the Doom Guy. Then they could give Doom Gal a completely different set of glory kills where she uses her knee to smash a demons skull instead of her hands. If they could repeat those kind of differences for all the kills in the game it could lead to some fun replay ability to see Doom Slayer do new moves.Cool let me know the first DOOM game where your gender plays a role in the story and that will be the one I skip.
You could have told me reboot Doomslayer was a female this whole time and that would be fine. That's true equality, is it not? The gender hasn't come up until this point, why even start now?
See this is where I jump off. Just give me a game about shooting demons. Now it has to "impact the gameplay in a way that was meaningful". What does that mean? Do I reload weapons slower as a woman? Are demons now attuned to my period blood?
That's the problem, they can't just plug in a woman, they have to "make a statement". It can't just be a woman doing the Doomslayer things (which would be fine). It has to be an opportunity to virtue signal and cram some cringy male feminist shit into the gameplay and story. So now a simple game with a simple story that was just "blank avatar shoots demons" is going to have to feature gender stuff. DOOM is supposed to be fun b-movie trash. This would be like getting a lecture on economics from your soft drink.
If woke means making the game cool with stuff like that wake me up! It would be sweet if they did a slight balance like that.Your entire post is so offbase that you should reread it one week later and ask yourself what you were thinking.
Here's Hugo's quote again (emphasis mine):
Can he not be referring to making her more agile, having a double jump, faster sprints, dashes and grapples?
And you realize such changes most likely need a retooling of the level design which might be why she's not in Eternal to begin with?
Where on earth are you getting the idea that Hugo is going woke?
That’s cool! The “shake it baby” girls were playable for a while? That would have kinda been fun actually.I honestly wouldn't mind as long as you can select male or female at the start of the game. Or have the player swap between them during different portions of the game.
On a side note, one thing I thought was cool about the earlier builds of Duke Nukem Forever was that the player would start out playing as Duke until he was captured by the aliens and you had to play as Bombshell (his female sidekick) for a portion of the game.
The most annoying thing is they brought it on themselves, they could've just never shown a face and then said "Uhhh, the Doomslayer is whatever you want him/her/zim/zer to be!" if pressed, but better still to not care. I didn't necessarily assign a gender to the DS before Eternal. I just thought of "him" as a force of nature embodied in the suit, I only said him for ease of speaking, I suppose, I didn't even think about too deeply tbh. Now its boring though, because its a just a human looking guy.
They could make a new character, is it for coop purposes? Thats sounds good.
Those that like to say “you’re bringing politics into my games” have to make a cringe thread giving us their political opinions. It’s just a part of GAF. I’m happy we can all speak our mind but sometimes you just roll your eyes and scroll past the junk.Isn't this game first person shooter? So what's does it matter if the character you control is a male, a female or a pokemon? Maybe someone want to play this fun game and be able to choose their gender and have fun demolishing demons as a girl, is this so difficult to understand or we have to label everything that has an optional female character as sjw.
Yeah but in cases with Ac Odyssey, Kassandra is like a planet size difference in quality than Alexious and is the reason why i drop 150 hours into the game.Yep, are female gamers now going to buy this game because they see a vag on the cover? How did that work out for Battlefield?
Those kind of games are mostly played by males so this pandering is useless. Ubisoft wasted tons of ressources to create female characters and according to their stats barely anyone played them. I bet they were still played by males anyway.
I don't think they will.There's a lot of bickering in this thread, as expected.
But let's say they release the next Doom with a female protagonist. Don't like it? Don't support it. They'll get the picture.
Having two traditional genders in unacceptable in 2021. They shouldn't be named to avoid confusion and you should get an option to pick your favorite pronouns.Im not a vested Doom player, so for me I don't care.
I'm surprised more games don't simply have a 1-2 default. One man, one woman. Especially for games which have the character covered and the story can have anyone as the main character.
Now if it's a game where the character's gender is really important for story, voice acting (you got to double the costs with two voice actors) etc.... then ya. Probably better to leave the gender alone.
But for many kinds of games with negligible story and in this case, has Doom Dude ever been revealed as a beastly meathead?
I know you're making a joke but don't get me wrong, I don't want a woke Doomgal either. I simply trust that if Hugo is going to add a female Doom Slayer to battle alongside the male, then he'd want her to be leveraging the strengths of a fictional female character, which have typically centered around mobility.If woke means making the game cool with stuff like that wake me up! It would be sweet if they did a slight balance like that.
You’re more agile but worse at reloading fast or something. Some give and take and there is more doom then. It could even be a hard mode where you have like 80% health and ammo. Badge of honor. Being the chick and kicking ass. A universal hard mode for fun. Lots of potential.
I don't know about it being a new hard mode, just a new, second character that plays differently enough from Doom Slayer to make it an interesting experience.
