I'm glad you mentioned the title in the article. I'm far from a prude but I can also imagine the title being a sticking point for publishers; whore isn't exactly the most palatable term for the general public, is it?

As for the footage, I think it looks really bland. Granted, it's probably early footage but third person cover shooting isn't exactly getting the juices flowing.

Y'know I'm pretty sure there will be a lot of offended orientals if they keep that title.....I mean c'mon there are just some things you don't do.

This title talk is probably true, sadly, and it reminds me of the asinine God of War: Ascension controversy.

There's something in the new God of War game where, after stomping a female character to death, a trophy pops with the title "Bros before Hos." A bunch of people were offended and it was changed to "Bros before Foes."

Apparently it's perfectly fine to stomp someone to death, but don't dare question her sexual morality. It's probably a similar thing here.

"Oh, you can kill tons of people in this game by breaking necks, shooting, stabbing, or outright beating them to death, but the title has the word 'whore' in it and that's just taking it too far."

Maybe it's just me, but I think that sounds ridiculous.

Drogo Baggins I agree with you to an extent. However, I think that in a perfect world, the trophy title would only be seen by people 18 or over, while Whore of the Orient would be seen on TV, billboards, gameshops etc. I'm not a parent but if I were, I wouldn't want my child asking me what a whore was or calling younger peers whores.

Boom! <-- That's the sound of my rant exploding into nothingness.

Good points, actually.

In any case, I just hope things work out for this game, under whatever title. I don't think it looks particularly good at the moment, but who knows what it could turn into?

Perhaps I'm being too optimistic here...
