Even though Mystic Aurora makes good point, the almost naked women part is funny because I thought that Bayonetta was almost always naked when she used one of those magic attacks of hers.

RabidChinaGirl no but I got a girl who I'm pretty sure is underaged. It's actually a miracle that the game didn't receive any flak for banging young children.

Dragoon Hahah, well, they're the "Ones who came before" and our creators, but I always felt like the imagery surrounding them implied they were more than simple Earthlings. If anythingm they're quite alien in the general term, but perhaps the term "aliens" is too presumptive.
I suppose their alien in the sense they aren't human, but they were the first to call Earth their home as well as base us in their image. They're certainly not the extra-terrestial type of alien, at least. Which is the common misconception people make... >_< Haha.

Interestingly, the story of the First Civilization, who created humanity as a docile workforce and was subsequently viewed as gods by their creation, bears striking similarity to the Ancient Astronaut Theory, which is the idea that extraterrestrials visited the Earth in ancient times and genetically altered an existing hominid species to create humanity in their own image. As a result, extraterrestrials were responsible for influencing early human civilizations, cultures, and religions; and perceived as gods by their human creations. The only difference that this theory has to the explanation of the First Civilization, is that the First Civilization did not come from outer space, having resided on the Earth and evolved over time.

The more you know, eh?

Dragoon: Do people actually believe that nonsense?
Apparently so. Of course it's all hypothetical and theorised since nothing is actually proven. but then again, the idea of Plate Tectonics is just a theory so it's understandable how people can buy into it.

Well obviously. My point was merely that people can pick and choose what they base their knowledge of the world, in a world where a lot of our own knowledge is founded in hypothesis'. We can't prove or disprove these things, so it seems illogical to bash another for an opinion they believe to be true. If we can 100% prove their theory wrong, fine. but until such a time where it is proven and fact, I think we should at least give them the courtesy of our understanding.: While the evidence for Gravity and Plate Tectonics is overwhelming, there still isn't conclusive proof. It may seem far-fetched to us, but to another is may seem perfectly logical.

Live and let live, etc

I'm not saying our history is subjective but until we can prove such things as fact, people should be entitled to believe what they want. For example, I wholly disagree with the idea of religion-lead life, however I won't insult or bash or otherwise treat the person different because the way they live their life is something I disagree with. Just like I wouldn't expect someone to comment on my beliefs or way of life.

If people want to remain ignorant of the world around them, it's fine by me. As long as it doesn't get in the way of moral choices or law, why should people care? =P People seem to feel some obligation to pass comment on others, which I disagree with.

Anyway, this is somewhat detracting from the topic at hand. Feel free to PM me though if you want to continue the conversation. ^^

Mystic Aurora Not to derail from the article or anything, but yes, traditional high-fantasy games definitely have an AWFUL habit of giving ladies the most ridiculous armor possible.

As someone who sort of gravitated from Eastern to Western game styles over the years, I'm at least glad to see some of the major franchises making an effort to move away from this. Hopefully it'll lead others to follow. Letting you finally make a female Spartan in Halo? Yaaay. (Of course the other sexist aspect of Asian games that really bugs me is just how women are expected to act. That goes way beyond just games though.)

Ded Valve Hey, that goes back to the original topic, kind of. "Anything goes in Japan!" ;D

Dragoon I don't mean to get spoilerific, but... do they actually clarify that the ones who came before originated on Earth? Or how about where they went to when they left?

I think it's worse when games that weren't that bad suddenly start throwing scanty women all over the place. I'm looking at Dynasty Warriors here. I started at DW2, and as the years go by it gets more anime-looking, and apparently that means the women must get more scantily dressed. Remember how the original Yue Ying, Diao Chan and Shang Xiang looked? And some of the new girls are just >
To be fair, the Soul Calibur series did something pretty cool in that it introduced the modestly dressed femme fatale that is Hildegard Von Krone...

Oh, I've just derailed the news. Sorry everyone.

I agree I mean I don't mind a bit of fan service but not to the point a character is showing so much skin she'd be just as well off without armor. Western games don't seem to be as bad. Correct me if I'm wrong but as far as I know DOA is the only game with a "boob physics" engine.

quote Ded Valve
Actually the cycle isn't endless, you need to defeat god without becoming god yourself in order to elect a new god which is nothingness which means chaos which means no life so your only choice is to become god until one day you encounter a person who can destroy and create god at the same time but that person has never come in a million+ years of fighting god.

...I need to go lie down.
Hmm sounds a lot like Homestuck.
