man, who at MS could have thought this whole sequence was a good idea?!

I'm sure Patricia Hernandez/Kotaku is prepping their editorial right now.

This was the biggest thing that stood out to me in the conference. I mean, how terrible and uncomfortable can you get?

Don't really see it as a rape joke, but agree to disagree. I've had doctors tell me "it will be over soon" when giving me shots when I was younger (that i fucking hate)

Poor choice of words, but you're the one interjecting it was about rape.

My favourite part of that exchange was when she blurted out "No, I don't like this!"

They didn't actually say the word rape so I don't think it counts as rape.

Yeah, I think it is an over reaction myself. When I got shots as a kid my parents told me the same thing.

The sound bite of "No I dont like this." is going to crop up soooooooo much, but the "Just let it happen it'll be all over soon" soundbite is way more easily applied to the Xbox One DRM. Predicting frequent usage of it.

Far too vague to just label it a rape joke, not fair at all to the presenters imo. It was awkward though.

It was awkward as hell mainly because I knew somebody would construe it as a rape joke. It wasn't, by the way. He was clearly referring to his opponent's free nature.

It was a sex joke, not a rape joke. And it was pretty awkward.

I think it was just a poor choice of words. I don't think it was scripted and I'm sure he regretted saying it immediately after.

man

that banter was so awkward. It was really hard to tell what was scripted and what wasn't - "does this nerd even have many friends?" and this whole exchange made me want to melt into the floor.

Poor choice of words, but I don't think the guy was going for a rapey vibe. Equality means not ascribing intentions into words just because it's a guy saying it to a girl...
