Re: Polygon gives Beyonetta 2 a 7.5 because of sexualization

The trick is that it's not, indeed, female 'gamers'. That denotes a specific subculture. This is about people who play games, at least sometimes, and includes social games, casual games and so on. I think that, like femanism, gaming should break down into several sub categories and be treated as su...

Re: Polygon gives Beyonetta 2 a 7.5 because of sexualization

How about this then? http://www.dailydot.com/geek/adult-women-largest-gaming-demographic/ "Women over 18 made up a whopping 36 percent of the gaming population, followed by adult men at 35 percent." Alright, i think there's a huge difference between legitimate gaming (PC / console / handheld) and t...

Re: Polygon gives Beyonetta 2 a 7.5 because of sexualization

Game prices seem to be going down - full 50-60$ titles aren't as dominant as they used to be. Nope: http://www.statista.com/statistics/201093/revenue-of-the-us-video-game-industry/ "The statistic contains data on the total retail revenue of the U.S. video game industry.

Re: Polygon gives Beyonetta 2 a 7.5 because of sexualization

1) About 50% of all gamers are women. Currently, women don't play AAA titles as much as they play casual and mobile games. That means there's a huge untapped market in there, and so there's lots of money involved in there. What makes you think a whole demographic would just suddenly move from their...

Re: Polygon gives Beyonetta 2 a 7.5 because of sexualization

I don't think the game should get points off for over sexualization of women in games. In fact, I'm going to take it a step further and say that they shouldn't get any flak for misrepresenting women in games at all. Why do people expect that games, made by men, predominantly for men, should represen...

Re: I regret everything.

Glad to see the wolfire community isn't full of whiteknights who would defend this hypocrite Zoe for the shit she pulled. Feminism isn't so much the focus of the rage going on about this, although it is a key piece; it's more about how easily one can tamper with the integrity of gaming journalism, w...

Re: Sudden surge of spam

They don't do it themselves. They use a macro system. Otherwise called a "bot". It's a piece of software that generates an account and content "appropriate" to the location they are invading. Yes, this is what i assumed but there was effort put into making this bot...for what? Why go through such c...

Re: Sudden surge of spam

I wonder what drives a human to do something so pointless as to go on this very small community, and just post junk that no one would even look at. No matter what angle you look at it, it seems like just such a waste of time and effort to do that.

Re: This Goddamn Lady

Meh, don't really give a shit until they're forcing people, more specifically children to believe in their religion rather than giving them a choice. Who are atheists to tell christians they are delusional?

Re: No one will answer this question

The people that want multiplayer are usually in one of these audiences: Players who feel it's their job to convert these singleplayer games (The minority) 3 year olds who play CoD (Codfags) People who actually see that the game can benefit from this Or, you know, people who'd think it'd be fun.

Re: No one will answer this question

A bit of a loaded question because we have to define what a "good" game is to answer it. But my two cents on this is that actually some games, such as battlefield or CoD,are almost entirely reliant on a good multiplayer experience. This can be debated, but for the most part i know people who buy tho...
