Moving a camera angle is now considered woke? Do you know of the content in the actual game....this is one game I wouldnt consider woke at all where apaprently you can fuck anything and beat the hell out of a female reporter etc.

jesus people think anything is "woke" these days

Dude why you virgin shaming so hard? having sex really isn't anything to brag about after highschool, unless you're still a teen and then I feel uncomfortable having this discussion with you in the first place. OOPS

Keep in mind that he called you a "petulant child" when in this thread he has;

1. Constantly bragged about the sex he gets.
2. Calls anyone who disagrees with him a "virgin neckbeard".
3. Contributed nothing of worth to the discussion.
4. Spends large amounts of time doing all of the above.

There's a severe irony when someone tries to present themselves as an enlightened individual when their only output is bragging about how much sex they get and calling other people virgins on a video game message board.

One has to wonder how these kinds of people are able to spend so much time posting in a single thread if they're getting so much sex. You would think that such a person would spend more time doing that than posting here.

The reason for this is that this behaviour is just a manifestation of insecurity. Being naturally interested in sexual content that appeals to you in the media that you consume, he sees you as an easy target to prop up his own ego. Hence the constant reinforcement and reminder as his status as as an immaculate adonis drowning in girls. Key thing to note is that what they constantly remind you of is what their ideal is, not actual reality.

Because if that really is their reality, they're not going to see a need to prop up their ego by posting low effort trash posts on a video game message board. Their ego won't need it.

I remember specifically that one shot in that gif. I was playing the game and my gf back at that time went by and she told me how gratuitous that was. I didn't think much of it back then but in retrospective, she was damn right. Totally unnecessary. Won't change my experience with the game the slightest. I mean, choose your combats ffs

Miranda will have the same outfit. You'll still be able to zoom on her ass by manipulating the camera in-game if you really wish to do so. Updating the game to current standard doesn't hurt anyone other than those who bother for stupid shit.

Nail on head mate.

I think it's called projecting.

-

Telling how it's always ugly SJWs who can't stand attractive people in video games. Especially attractive females. They paint it as defying exploitation, but the reality is, if they had those kind of looks in real life, they'd exploit their own attractiveness for social advantage. Instead they grew up bitter about their own lackluster appearance. But rather than developing a great personality and pleasant social skills to compensate, they just cry victimhood against any portrayal of what they can never be. They'd rather "level the playing field" by burning it down, then face the reality that indeed not everyone is born of equal means. Athletes use their physical prowess to excel, intelligent minds use their mental acumen to excel, sexy women or men use their looks to excel... but whiny self proclaimed "victims of the patriarchy"? They have only their self-deluded persecution complex to sell.

Good for BioWare. Those dialogue scenes with the camera leering at Miranda's ass were cringeworthy. It would've been just as dumb if a male character was packing a big bulge &, during dialogue, the camera just sat there staring at his package. It was daft.

I'm all for sexy character designs. I'm all for sex scenes. Sexual content is fine. Don't frame the in game character like a horny teenager though. Have some class, especially during innocent dialogue scenes. There's a time & a place.

That does not even make sense. Why do you compare a fucking butt with a dick? Yes it would be strange if this scene would happening at we had a good shot at her pussy and cameltoe. But this is a but not your stupid example. It is not like you see male Shepards Ass all the time huh? Or how about Snake's ass in Metal gear Solid?

edit: Let me give you some advice how you compare body parts of Men and Women

Female = Male
Boobs = Chest
Butt = Butt
Vagina = Penis

Don't do it in future games then, don't go back and change what the fans know and like.

The primary reason is simply Scott doesn't look like that in game.

Let that belly loose my friend, no matter how much you hold it in you're still no closer to having a flat stomach. Let it droop. You just found a reason why your friends secretly think you're a stuck-up and your connections are superficial.
There's no message in any of this, there's nothing to analyze or think about. Ass is beautiful.

Miranda was written that way she genetically modified and unapologetic about way she is, plus the illusive Man obviously got her for those skills not only to be able to seduce but to kill if she had to, I say she be the best to have at your side knowing what Commander Shepard needed to accomplish.

Oh yeah that would be another thing they will 100% remove-.

Also Remember they did this


Nooooooooo.....nooooooooooooo. Good God. Did she commit treason against the human race? Is that why they horrifically mangled her in game model like that?

Also I know that they're changing some of the more provocative camera angles at certain points with an obviously "less objectification" front to look like amazing people, but we all know it's because they have extra time to just dick around and shit . They think they're being cheeky bastards, but all they're doing is taking time that could be used to fix a bug or something.

I don't have a life because i talked to you in a internet forum?

What an horrible thing to do, talk to a stranger in internet. That was a terrible thing for my part.

But meanwhile you evade to answer a single thing i told you in my reply.

No, you need to get a life since you're getting worked up over somebody having different views than you. I like what I like. Why should that have any effect on you whatsoever?

Also you're not "talking" to a person on the internet. No, you're condemning/shaming them for what they like.

And I didn't answer your "question" because you went off on some rant about porn. I didn't say anything about porn, did I? I didn't answer your "question" originally, as it didn't warrant a response. But since you think it does, there you go. There's your response.

They were cringeworthy angles, only in there for a specific purpose, and didn't really do anything except add to the perception of immaturity around the gaming culture. They certainly didn't add anything useful to the story. I'm fine with it being removed. Time for folks to grow up a little bit.

He can have many opinions on a game. Even though he made Anromeda so that disqualifies him from a good Storywriter and director.

This is about camera direction and design. The Asshots were fitting for this character because she was very 90s sexualized. Not only the way of the camera but also her personality. It was fitting.

And as I said before Andromeda had the worst token Characters in Bioware history. You had the women, the lesbian, the black guy the asian guy and the not human Crew Member. That what their pesonality was. They do not happen to be gay like for example Bill in the Lasst of Us no they are gay characters. Tahts their personality. And the overall writing was terrible as well.

So yes he can have an opinion but as someone who loves Storytelling I do not value his opinion very high. Maybe like the guy who wrote the Storyline to Fifa.

You realize that camera angle is from a conversation where she's talking about how she's worried about her sister right? It's the quest where you get her loyalty mission.

It's not like that angle is from a romance scene (where it would've fit and I'd have 0 issues with it). The worst part is the "I can't admire your body or your mind?" romance conversation would've been perfect for a shot like that instead it's in the middle of a serious conversation.

It's utterly laughable where it's placed.

Also Miranda isn't a femme fatal character in the least in ME2 outside her outfit.

*Miranda has an emotional moment talking about her abusive father using her daughter as nothing more than a tool.*
*Cut to a camera angle where her ass takes up almost half the screen.*

Yeah I'm not one to be pro censorship, but this is a good change. I love me some sexy characters, but there's a time and place to have shots like that, and ME2 always did it at the most inappropriate times.
It always killed me because the romance conversation where Shep mentions admiring her body is the *perfect* place to put it and would've made the scene more playful and would've worked perfectly.
