oh Kojima ya old perv, you are a true Japanese man after all. But seriously this smells 100% of "BOOBS SELLS". No wonder some people think we gamers a pervs :/
Well... Can it maybe have a sexy character AND be a good game??? It's not like "sex sells" isn't a widely known and practiced concept.
I thought Quiet's skin was active camo, therefore the lack of clothes was a necessity to utilize her ability, as clothes would cause her to stand out, hence the fishnets.
"Nice feedback friend I hope you remain a virgin forever" hahaha. I just knew THIS topic was going to be on Feedbuckula. But I was hoping that the topic was going to be about the Halo developer calling that female sniper disgusting. I think more comments would've been flooded with that topic lol
Female characters with revealing clothes in a Japanese video game? And the world goes on as fucking normal.
guys, guys come on now, is this what we want? arguing over boobs or not to have boobs? cant we live in a world with both? the game industry has evolved so much over the years, we honestly cant have both? you cant have your cake and eat it too but you forget....I LIVE IN AMERICA BITCH I DO GET TO HAVE MY CAKE AND EAT ITS FROSTY GOODNESS!!! so seriously....quit yo bitching, your gonna get a great game, and if you want boobs your gonna get boobs because kojima has not only baked us a cake, but is serving it to our mouths as well.
A petition for changing Quiet's costume and the shitty attitude of Kojima and the industry in general towards female characters in gaming. https://www.change.org/petitions/hideo-kojima-and-konami-give-this-poor-girl-some-clothes-a-call-to-change-quiet-s-costume
I actually do walk the desert naked, i specially love going prone on my fav hot rock with snakes and razor sharp stones on it....it's lovely.
I don't particularly "agree" with the controversy that has been generated by Kojima's comment. Metal Gear has always been absurd in pretty much every possible way and in the grand scheme of things, Quiet's design is almost TAME, both in relation to some of the shit MGS itself has already pulled off, and to the rest of the gaming industry.
Having said that... I've watched this episode more than I should just for the final voice over.
Get your tits out. Get your tits out. Get your tits out for the lads. Get your tits out... For the lads.
"Get your tits out, get your tits out, get your tits out, get your tits out for the lads. Get your tits out, get your tits out for the lads."
Now that was epic.
allwasy a laugh watching this show that voice over on kojima was hilarious. get ya tits out get ya tits out........... for the lads lmao
I'm fine with sexiness. Just release two different version. 1 for those who like boobs and 1 for those who like man boobs.
It sucks when something good adds useless fan service in it. It happens with anime way too often. It only bugs me when it's prevalent to the point where it just ruins the moment for you, when it's trying to have a serious moment as the camera is centered on the girls' tits. If you want to add in a racy scene or two that doesn't screw up the plot line, then feel free. Separation of sex and serious.
Eva was more provocative and mgs3 didn't had this kind of split opinion, i think the people just became more stupid in the recent years.
I'm honestly quite surprised this is getting so much attention. Hasn't anyone seen the new trailer for this game?Without revealing any spoilers let's just say one rather disturbing operation scene comes to mind. And some of you honestly seem to be more shocked about naked body parts and the way kojima explained his creative intentions for the 'quite' character design.
this is being drawn way out of proportion. I would advice people to walk outside there homes or even put on your favorite televsion show or network and look around. How many references towards 'sex' and erotic clothing/behaviour etc. do you find? I'm not saying it's good or bad, that's up to you to decide. But calling a game or a character like this sexist i just don't understand. There a things far more disturbing in this world, and I don't believe you'll find it in this game.
Johnny, you didn't even mentioned once why Quiet is wearing just bikini and stockings.. skin camouflage.
In other news. While I dont see the point of designing the character to be "sexy", I could accept a % of logic behind her, maybe, having just a bikini top but still having combat bottoms and gear. Aside from the fact she wouldn't be required to rush into combat at close quarters and could afford to get away with less gear; say to make herself lighter and easier to, no pun intended, fit into smaller quarters; It also makes some sense that in a hot arid environment it might be a persons choice to ware less then normal. I dont think that some possible logic being applicable makes it at all acceptable to create a design with such simplistic and narrow minded goals.
But it's a problem with habit for older vets like kojima more then intent. He's always slipped a sexualisation of his characters, for example the photo mini games unlocking during boss fights and looking at breasts as naked snake. (Although, side note, he's done that with the men too - Kaz got a photo mode too, which was just as lecherous ) I just don't think kojima and a lot of the developers his age understand the change in attitudes for the vast majority of gamers now. That doesn't make it forgivable, but maybe understandable. It'll take a new generation of devs to rise to his status to change things in a positive way.
"eroticise her? i barely knew her!"
sorry @SHEETBIKE i figured some people might have been missing this.
The feedbackula opening drop is the same as the espn fantasy focus podcast for over-reaction theater.
Man u people are trippin. Violence torture and gore is ok but add NOT EVEN BOOBS but a sexy suit and its all over. It could be the fact that I lived in germany where boobs are on public tv or............ it could be you all are just dumb.
Soo many Lol moments in this comment that I had to read it three times.
Fuck your petition. Quiet is a powerful and independent woman and she can dress any way she wants.
@SoulxReaperx366 Doesn't Quiet's skin act as active camo? I thought this was the reasoning behind her skimpy outfit, because wearing clothes completely negates her ability to hide while sniping.
@IcarusSilverkin gladly I buy it :)
@CarlosGabriel Or more mature?
@contentxcontext :( ew... i missed it
@SoreThumbsBill Awww...u mad virgin?
@Dictatroll @SoreThumbsBill Cause calling someone a virgin on the internet is a winning argument, right? It's like, the perfect internet insult, if they respond at all, it makes them look stupid. You sure came with the big guns early, all he said what fuck your petition, and it's not even your petition.......I find it's the white knights on the internet who tend to be the virgins, because really, the only people who go out of their way to praise women and defend their "honor" are the ones who haven't experienced them first hand. Women do not need every idiot who wishes girls would talk to them on the internet trying to fight a battle that they couldn't give a shit about, for them. Girls do not care about what a girl in a video game is wearing, just like guys don't care what a guy is wearing. Where were all the girls defending mens rights in MGS2 when Raiden was doing naked cartwheels all over the place? Or how about in just about every game ever made, no girls are out starting petitions to change all the skin tight junk accentuating outfits these muscular men are wearing? You know why? Because guys don't give a shit, just like girls don't give a shit, the only people who care are guys who want to appear extra sensitive, or appear to be all about womens rights. It's a video game, stop caring so much, and stop pretending like you're better than someone just because you think you do.
Watch out folks, we got a ladies killer over here!
