[QUOTE=MisterMooth;41661648]no it's really just a "lol gay" joke did you miss all the backlash on the internet when it happened [editline]1st August 2013[/editline] [url]http://gamasutra.com/blogs/ChristianNutt/20130423/191078/Dragons_Crown_George_Kamitani_and_being_stupid_on_Facebook.php[/url] here's a good write-up on the whole ordeal[/QUOTE] All I see is one person complaining (about something which they themselves said wasn't that bad), and almost all the comments disagreeing with him. There is nothing wrong with off-color humor. I'm not going to get a raging hate boner whenever someone makes a joke about white people, men, or my sexuality, and nobody else should, either. People like you are going to be the DEATH of comedy.
You are not even arguing at all anymore mooth, you are still pushing your "my interpretation is fact, and everyone else is wrong, homophobic, stupid, childish, ect." "You know it!" or "It's obvious!" isn't an argument, and neither is calling people names in a self-righteous fever. I suggest you stop before you make yourself look worse.
[QUOTE=katbug;41661445]Because it's dumb, and you guys are trying to make every single thing in this sub forum about your social rights movements. Stop saying stupid, incendiary things, and you'll stop getting rated dumb.[/QUOTE] Did you even read his post? About how it wasn't about some 'social justice' issue but that the artist responded to a perfectly valid criticism of his work with a cheap gay joke, therefore earning him the status of 'dipshit'. As for 'stop saying stupid incendiary things' I'm fairly certain that's just your shorthand for 'stop saying things I disagree with'.

For people who aren't like you and do face injustices with regard to their sex, race or sexuality such jokes can easily be interpreted as demeaning. I'm not saying that's always the case but I do disagree with your conjecture that without offensive jokes comedy will die on its arse - hardly, it's just taking away the easy, immature option. I seriously can't believe I'm explaining to you why people could be offended by cheap crass gay jokes

[QUOTE=katbug;41661861]No, it's "stop saying things that lead to 3 pages of shitslinging"[/QUOTE] Why don't you help by not slinging shit then? Having an argument that gets people impassioned and fired up to the point where they're really having a go at each other isn't a cause to abandon the argument, it's just cause to tell people to argue better.
[QUOTE=MisterMooth;41661732][img]http://i.imgur.com/vG5cgWu.png[/img] how does it get any more obvious than that, seriously[/QUOTE] Okay you win on that one whatever there's no point going any more than this. [quote][url]http://gamasutra.com/blogs/Christian...n_Facebook.php[/url] here's a good write-up on the whole ordeal [/quote] So this guy got his feelings hurt because he over-analysed the picture? Really? Maybe people should stop over-analysing things that are meant for a cheap laugh.
[QUOTE=JustGman;41661907]Anyone with half a brain has already figured out you guys only bait and shit because you know it derails threads and you know you aren't going to get banned for it.[/QUOTE] it's hardly derailing the thread when it's still about the game and no-one's going to get banned for it because it's an interesting, pretty on topic discussion that's fairly civil why do you view it as 'baiting and shitting'?
I'm considering getting this for Vita. I really wish the game had Cross Buy though, It'd make my decision a lot easier. The art style kind of turns me off, but the game seems to have quite a bit of hype, so I imagine it can't be unwarranted.
The Amazon is more like an extremely exaggerated female Viking than an Amazon especially with those tattoos.
Having loved Muramasa, I will probably check this out and even enjoy the art style. Vanillaware games are just beautiful. [img]http://videogameporn.files.wordpress.com/2012/10/fyimh.gif[/img] [img]http://videogameporn.files.wordpress.com/2012/10/ik3znpycpfli6.gif[/img]

Rinse and repeat ad infinitum.

Maybe people should stop over-analysing things that are meant for a cheap laugh.[/QUOTE] how is saying his response was shitty and immature "over-analysing" anything surely if we can do this for someone like phil fish then we can apply it to this guy as well or have we as a forum not collectively decided to hate the guy just yet
Guys seriously. Its a game. I like to rant about games sometimes but ranting about the size of boobs for the past five pages is a bit silly. Holy shit and I'll agree that every thread is becoming a hotspot for someone to start crying because one thing in the article isn't right in their opinion. Just stop.
I am kinda interested in this game. Too bad I don't have a PS3/Vita.
I'm gonna put these images on this page too. While Muramasa did not have missile tits, it was created by the same artists who are extremely talented and capable of creating awesome and interesting art. I think we should give the game a chance before writing it off.

The character looks so out of place.
[QUOTE=AJisAwesome15;41662131]The character looks so out of place.[/QUOTE] eh only slightly seems to be just part of the style
[QUOTE=Namaste;41662039]While Muramasa did not have missile tits[/QUOTE] Did you forget about Kongiku? [t]http://www.scenicreflections.com/files/Muramasa:_The_Demon_Blade_朧村正_Oboromuramasa​_Kongiku_紺菊_Wallpaper_69wn3.jpg[/t]
[QUOTE=AJisAwesome15;41662131]The character looks so out of place.[/QUOTE] Poor .gif quality doesn't make it look very good. [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N6U7hdV6Dxg[/media]
I used the gifs because the animation is really pretty in my opinion but the video is a better idea. And Kongiku wasn't that bad?
[QUOTE=katbug;41661999]I'm not even going to respond to that in a formal capacity because it's just going to start another pointless "privilege" debate, which will go nowhere.[/quote] So you're refusing to debate. Bit juvenile but fine.

[quote] post like that are pointless, inflammatory, and is obviously designed to cause a spectacle, at the end of which you can just say "lol stupid privileged men, what do you know" and leave. Rinse and repeat ad infinitum.[/QUOTE] Isn't that, in a way, what you're doing now? By refusing to actually address my point you've basically just said' stupid inflammatory commenter you're just trying to make me mad, what do you know'
jesus christ it's like the have clouds as legs and arms

[QUOTE=JustGman;41662203]Poor .gif quality doesn't make it look very good. [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N6U7hdV6Dxg[/media][/QUOTE] ah, okay, i see now.

[QUOTE=Generic Monk;41662365]So you're refusing to debate. Bit juvenile but fine. well no because you would be arguing something with no basis in fact or logic whereas I am.

You and I both know it would not end in debate, but rather both sides yelling and screaming until someone says something stupid, gets banned, and the thread gets locked, or another "hot button" thread pops up.
[QUOTE=MisterMooth;41661323][IMG]http://i.imgur.com/vG5cgWu.png[/IMG] it's pretty obvious what he meant i wish people would stop dancing around the fact it was obviously a stupid gay joke[/QUOTE] it doesn't have to be a gay joke in the west it's common in games to be filled with a bunch of buff guys or gruff voiced guys
[QUOTE=Generic Monk;41662365]So you're refusing to debate. Bit juvenile but fine.[/QUOTE] Debate debate debate why does everything need to be a fucking debate in this section, he doesn't want to debate (which is fine in itself btw) because he knows where it's going to lead, and he's right
