So wait, does this count the whole half woman half beast thing too? That is a lot of mythical creatures they are cutting out. If it's just civilian women then I am all for it, but if we are talking mermaids and things like that then I am kinda pissed. Just seems kinda sexist to do it to that extent.

Also I guess this means no female multiplayer characters.

So in games violently slaughtering males is fine, but doing the same with females is wrong? That seems like positive discrimination to me, which is something I find just as repulsive as the more stereotypical discrimination.

Positive discrimination has no place in the drive towards equality for all.

"There are some things we've pulled back from." Really means "This is going to be the lamest God of War game you've ever played."

Violence is violence so what difference does it make, in a world where men and women are supposedly equal why is this an exception? So its ok to mow down women in GTA, drag them to death in RDR, among everything else in countless other games but suddenly not ok in God of War, whats next is Freddy Crugar and Jayson Voorhees gonna be not allowed to kill women too?

Honestly it bugs me when people complain about lack of equality then pull things like this. People only want it when it benefits them, when will they learn you can't have your cake and eat it too?

drag them to death in RDR
I loved that. So much fun. To anyone. Mostly those poor donkey riding bastards in southern mexico. They got it the worst, mostly because they were easy to catch. Don't forget the whole achievement about hogtieing a woman and putting her on the train tracks to watch her get all exploded by the front of the train.

How could I forget that, that was the first person I put on the tracks too. See why is it ok for Marshton to hogtie women and leave them on train tracks for an achievement/trophy but not for Kratos to kill them on his path towards revenge?

I had no idea that all of you were so vehement towards equal rights that you're outraged that you won't be seeing women get dismembered in a game that already has plenty of gore.


Luckily for you all, Netherrealm Studios shits all over the line that Sony won't cross.
