Weird, html error. No Edit. :(
...It's not news.The art style of asian origin games is important for their branding. It differentiates them from the perception of what American based games look like (WoW, SWToR, EQ). Aion used this to hype their game. It didn't look America, it looked exotic...
Welcome to how females are portrayed in fantasy. This has been around since .... forever. Get over it.
woah haven't seen this rant before... try closing your eyes perhaps that helps.
It's like a genre dominated by men is catering to... men.
I think itÂ´s nice, really. It is over the top, but it assumed it is doing this on purpose. It is a 18+ game. And frankly, badass women have nothing to hide, just like Conan never had, right?
Korean games have always been about being near perfect and making every frame of your game screenshot-worthy. Personally, I love it.
I do think it is very refreshing to see their take on males too, even if they could have pushed it a bit more. I do understand why they didn't though, since this game have been planned to be released here too.
Anyway, I do think castanics are much more on the "look, you canÂ´t touch this" side, than the freely available woman :p
It just wouldn't be the Tera forums if there wasn't a thread about the Female Armors..
its a fantasy game.
as a female, if i could go around kicking [filtered] in thongs and high heels, i SO WOULD. however, i cant. :(
so instead i play fantasy games where i can.
Welcome to Western Culture, where everybody is fine with curb-stomping and chainsaws through the chest but if you show a bit of skin, everybody has a conniption fit (they have the same reaction to [filtered] marriage, but I won't hop on that soapbox).
Being a [filtered] man, I'm stereotypically sympathetic towards women. For some reason your girlfriends like talking to us, so I'm around them a fair amount. However, I really think that video games have done a great deal to empower women. Women are badasses in this game: they are not weak, they are not helpless, and they often dominate the men. When looking at the more prominent feminists in the entertainment industry like Lady GaGa and Beyonce, you don't see them covering up with baggy sweaters and ankle-length skirts, they are liberated; they wear whatever the hell they want. Back in the day it was deemed improper to show much of any skin; women were repressed. The sexualization in this game flies in the face of that.
Why the hell is g@y a flitered word, enmasse?! WTF?!
