Yes because they are bad at modeling characters! Even fucking Miranda is ugly in the face. But no it’s a woke conspiracy.

No, what you mean is female characters aren’t allowed to be sexy in your narrow minded view. Which probably means they have to some teenagers idea of sexy. They have to look like pornstars because you have an adolescent idea of sexy females.

Lara Croft isn’t sexy anymore because she doesn’t wear short shorts and have a g cup. But instead is highly detailed and traditionally attractive complete with probably a d cup and beautiful features.

There’s no sex in games yet Cyberpunk and Wolfenstein have more detailed sex then ever before, but I guess Anya isn’t wearing thongs so it’s not sexy. Judy was but Cyboerpunk doesn’t count because western media had critiques about the trans issue. Oh but they sure said the character writing was good and liked characters like Judy!

Faith in Mirror’s Edge Catalyst sure was ugly. I guess she needed to have her tits constantly out for you to like her.

Man the Latina character with the big butt in Apex is not sexy at all.

I guess the super gritty Last of Us series would have been better if Abbie and Ellie just looked like super models.

Man Overwatch dosent have two female characters with well modeled assess.

Mortal Kombat females are now less sexy because they have a little more clothes.

I guess if Feryea looked like a pornstar it would have really fit that games themes of motherhood.

Man Chloe and Drakes wife sure look ugly. I guess Chloe with her defined ass isn’t sexy because you don’t see a thong. Also no cleavage for Drake’s wife so she’s no longer pretty.

Did you need the chick in Gears 5 to wear no armor so you can see her boobs to find her attractive?

The female character in Cold War was sexy because of how detailed her model was and that she looked professional. But I guess the cia agent needs to look like a hooker for you.

So what is it that you want? How do these females need to be dressed for them to be sexy? What if they don’t fit the tone of the game? I guess the developers are just being woke? What is it that you want? All the females to look like characters from Sin Episodes? Even as western developers make more and more games that strive to look realistic.
1. Strange that they are only bad with female characters.
2. NO These women you see in their pictures have sexappeal. Their counterparts was every ounce of sex appeal removed especially in Andromeda
3.The best Lara Croft ever created was Angelina Jolie
4. I do not count CDRED as western emdiea they are east European company and they are the only ones who actually let their female characters be sexy
5. Mirrors Edge is no AAA game sorry to burst your bubble. Furthermore this was before Sony and CO highly censored female Characters.
6. NO she is not. But she is already part of the problem because women are not allowed to wear skirts anymore
7. This is a fucking strawman. There is a difference here between a game in highly sterilizzed Mass effect or a World like Last of US and even then Ellie was still not made ugly on purpose. Abby lets not talk about Abby because Abby does not even make sense in this world because of unrealistic Porpotions. Isnt that what people like you always complain about being unrealistic?
8. They changed the design for the worst. Back then they are memorable they are not anymore because they look all the same in terms of clothing. Also I never thought they were sexy.
9. Why d you even use Pornstar. Do these comparison picture I used feel to you like they are pornstars?
10,They changed Chloes character and appearances compared to her first introduction. And AGAIN You can compare the actual character models to the real actress with Elena.
11. What kind of argument is this? I never even said that every female character needs to be sexualized or did I ever say that? I SAID WOMEN ARE NOT ALLOWED ANYMORE TO BE SEXY
12 I do not know that game but if you talk about the COD which is SET IN THE 80s. It is probably because of this. Just like the Estetics in Mass effect 2 were perfect for their 90s sci fi homage
13. What I want? If you do motion Capturing and you perfectly recreate the male model you should od the same with the female model. Why is this so hard to understand? Why does the women need to be made more Ugly on Purpose? If you want an ugly character model chose an ugly actress.

You might last a while there to be honest.

Puritan censorship is shit, and current day bioware don't deserve to decide how to change the actual good older games they had nothing to do with originally. It's not even censorship, it's an effort to make games less appealing to straight white men by a radical left who demonize them as the cause of all their problems in life.
You keep using that term, but I don’t think you know what it means.

If you think this is a “Puritan” change you’re an idiot. There’s still sex in the game, “sexy” females, and violence. Things actual puritans would strongly be against.

Also Mac the person who made this quote is old BioWare. He worked on all these games. You people talk about how creators should have the right to do what they want, but that’s clearly only when it suits you.

BioWare can do whatever they want. Who are you to say otherwise? Don’t like it don’t buy the game I guess. That’s what you’d say if was “Puritan” complaining about say Senran Kagura.

And it’s only unappealing if you have the most fragile ego imaginable. Which you must have, if changing some camera angels bothers you this much. Oh no removing some tacky things and having some inclusive elements. The horror! How will you handle not everything pandering to you, just most things? If these things are such a affront to you I hope you lose this made up culture war you’ve created.

Senran series is dead, the creator left when Sony refused to publish it because of people like you who think attractive women only belong in porn.

Doubt it’s my fault since I bought all the PlayStation installments, even the vita one. Nice try though.

Also if you could read, my argument is no there are plenty of attractive females in games. I’m sorry that they just aren’t all designed to be jerk off material for the fragile ego male. Or that the subject material calls for different designs.

Since I dont have that problem I get to enjoy them. Have fun being butthurt over not being pandered to through the cheapest way though.

It is Sonys fault because they cracked hard against sexualizing in video games You could even argue that it is extrem xenophobic since Sony Japan or Japanese Developers have to send copies even translated copies to West Sony so they either allow the game or not. And it does not matter if its a Japan only release or not,

So andromeda sucked because we all had fragile egos?
No you have a fragile ego because you cry when the slightest thing isn’t targeted at you.

The game sucked because it was bad with bad production values, writing, graphics, and gameplay. Not because Ryder wasn’t pretty or had a nice ass. But if that’s one of you’re bummer points, that’s sad.

You have spent this entire thread being a condescending douche to anyone with the slightest bit of problem with the topic at hand. You must be a pretty insecure little soul, you speak of "fragile egos", yet you reek of fragility. There is no way in hell you aren't a Resetera reject.

Thanks for clarifying, I feel much better about the Andromeda team updating the remastered games now I know they fucked everything up, not just the lack of butts.

If the remaster sucks it sucks. It won’t suck because of tna unless that all you care about. Which if it is I’m sorry.

But also you do realize, that team isn’t making it. They don’t exists as BioWare Montreal.

I'm the prude sure, meanwhile your a grown ass straight male complaining about pixel ass because you cant get any in the real. if you were getting that real shit why would you complain about the fake shit. Hey and anyways doesn't matter if your a straight male I want you to keep it 100, if male ass is getting cut I want you to keep that same energy. Censorship is censorship am I right? But you dont care because you wana get off on that fake Miranda ass.
Nah if they needed the male characters I would be just as upset. Example imagine getting a Conan the barbarian game and he is portrayed frail as a stick wearing a dress. Leave the characters and writing alone. Make new series about frail dress man but don't change an established game.

It is more sad that you are ok with women getting tehri sexuality and sex appeal removed by makiing them more ugly then they actually are.
You’re an idiot.

There are plenty of “sexy” women in games and more actual sex than ever. They just are designed without trying to only appeal to people like you whose idea of a sexy female is a hooker like dressed character with GG boobs.

Ryder in ME was ugly because the game is a mess not because of any stupid incel “they did it on purpose because they hate men or are woke” bs narrative you’ve created in your head. It was a bad game that looked ugly in general. This is known. Keep believing whatever you want and fight the fight for whatever.

As a gay woman, so do I. I get stuck with ugly ass bitches like Aloy and Abby though when I would rather look at Miranda and Morrigan. Just because I have had sex in real life, does not mean I don't appreciate it in fiction.
Here here. I never understood the desire for people to not want good looking characters. Morrigan was amazing in da origins. I shudder to think of what they would do to her and lelianna from that game if the did a remaster.

Thank you for standing up for this. My step daughter and aunt are both gay and they don't like how much they are uglifying characters either. We are from different generations zoomer, boomer and me a Gen Xer and we agree on this.

Another thing, it's so odd to me. I am 42. I remeber when almost all fan art was of beautiful images what changed? I am not the most handsome man in the world but when I play a man in a video game I want him to look great too. I grew up with amazing fantasy art thr likes of conan and red Sonia. Clyde caldwell paintings in dnd and games like Heavy Metal Fakk 2 where the main character was a bad ass sexy no nonsense woman who takes no shit from anyone, but is sexy in the process. It's like they want everyone to look like themselves. That defeats what fiction can do. Get you into an escape to another world. Where you aren't stuck in your average body, or take on the role of someone like Geralt of Rivia or Laura Croft, if only for a bit of time.

This guy gets it.

Nothing wrong with a grown adult male enjoying virtual ass shots vicariously in a video game. Sex sells, it has always sold, it will always sell. Just as violence sells, it has always sold, it will always sell. These two things go together in entertainment, just as peanut butter and jelly go together in bread. Take the sex out and now you've got a fucking jelly sandwich. Not nearly as good. Pretending otherwise is idealistic nonsense. This retroactive censorship will backfire. Get woke, go broke.

Whats more likely? That a bad game with a known terrible production by developers that have never really done facial animation and whatnot that great. Facial animation that also has to deal with a character creator. Resulting in that character having a terrible face in game with terrible faces and animation.

Or BioWare on purpose made an ugly female because they are woke sjws and games today are not allowed to have attractive characters. Leading to much scrutiny and criticism. They wanted to make the character ugly so much and the game so graphically buggy and messey that they were willing to have the studio dissolve.

What do you think is more real?

People really need to tell me about the obsession with Miranda, she looks like Michael Jackson with a fat ass. Complain all you want about what naughty dog did to the bodies of people but BioWare REALLY fucked up Yvonne.

What did ND do besides have realistic body types for tons of different characters?

I wanna make it clear that TLOU 2 is my second favorite game of this generation behind Death Stranding. But if you look up what they did to many of the body models was just odd like reducing Dana’s breast size or increasing Abby’s muscle mass from the athlete they scanned her from.

It's nice to see the people ITT who are offended by an ass shot and defending this censorship, are getting destroyed.

"I don't need no digital ass. I'll just get some real ass yo"

LOL can you hear yourself? :messenger_grinning_squinting:

And do you turn off movies whenever there's an attractive woman onscreen?

Cherry Sonoshee back to REEEEEEE with you. You are too much. My whole body is cringing. My cells are cringing lol

They were completely gratuitous. I'm telling you not because i hate woman, becuase i hated Miranda the first time i talked to her. She's not the kind of woman you can stare like a zombie at her ass.

She's bad. And i'm bad, that's why i don't care about her ass. Never cares and always trated her like shit in all my playthroughs. Like cold ice winter in the Karakorum.

There're is no ass in this world that's going to make care about fuckng Miranda.

And you're wanker if you care about asses in videogames. You're part of the problem.

Do you even know what you are talking about?

The only people offended are the likes of you and the idiots who you think are "destroying" AKA crying because of some pointless change.

I'm not offended by an ass shot. I don't care if it's in the game or not. It makes no difference. What I think is stupid is the constant crying over nothing. Mass Effect 2 will be the same good game regardless of some irrelevant change. What's cringe are posters whining at the loss of ass shots, as if that affects the game. As if anything is really changed. What's cringe is grown dudes not buying a game, not because you can't look at the ass or still have sex with the character, but because there are fewer scenes where the camera shifts to it.

Can you hear yourself?

"They are taking sex out of the game"

Miranda's design is unchanged and you can have sex with her.

"There are no more attractive females in games"

Blizzard has made a fortune out of sexy characters in Overwatch. Lara Croft is still hot. Does every game have to have lots of tna to be good? Or rather do the numerous attractive females in games have to show whatever amount of tna for you to be satisfied?

The irony here with Resetera is you people are the exact same. They'll cry about sex pandering, you'll cry about not being pandered too. When the reality is games are fine, you just can't stop bitching about something.

Also, stop using the word censorship. You don't know what it means. Especially in this situation, where it literally is the creators choosing to do it because of how they want to present their work. Something this forum always boasts about believing in. It's not even self-censorship. There was no obligation to change this. It's right there in the quote, they think it was stupid. Not, "we felt it would offend some". You can believe them or not, but again if you want to hold up creative freedom, you have to do it even you don't like the result.

Kind of silly when Jack is in the game using pasties and string for a shirt.
In a way, yes, but Jack doesnt represent traditional female beauty (because of the shaved head and tattoos covering pretty much her whole body), so SJW's arent threatened by her, like how they are by Miranda.

But there're no shots of Jack, as far as i remeber as poorly concibed and produced like by a 12 year old, like the ones with Miranda.

They were so shabby and pointless.

Although they served a to make a point very clear: if a woman have a great ass, no matter how bad she is, there's going to be wankers defending her no matter what. To the end. To death.

For some reason all of my guy friends find her super hot. IDFK.

You literally see her tits in every shot of her.

You need to calm down. I liked Miranda's character evolution, even if her face was weird.

It's an actual question of why you people are offended by any sort of change or developers doing anything that I guess you've deemed "woke".

I think games are great. I don't know why this forum is constantly upset about every game.

Why? You're weird.

There's a lot porn out there, you know? Why when you play games also like to look at porn?

That has signs of being an addiction.

Why do you care what some random person likes? Seriously? How does it affect you in any way?

That has signs you need to get a life, when you get all worked up about what other people like.

You're literally choosing to come onto a message board and cry that people feel differently about their toys than you do.

People have different tastes, and those tastes manifest in different ways.

When people are used to getting the things they like and suddenly there's a trend that pushes against it, they're criticize it.

It's not a big deal.
