Default Sin:Episodes is Good, But You Guys Need To Grow Up

If you've got a solid shooter on your hand, you don't need to promote it with gratuitous titty images. Makes everyone seem like they're 12 years old, masturbating to daddy's crusty issues of Hustler.

Looks like you're the one who needs to grow up if you are complaining about some boobies.

I always find it ironic that people of dubious maturity get offended by nuidity or profanity will invaribly call it childish. It's only naughty if you tell yourself it is, otherwise it's just stuff, often entertaining stuff.

I have yet to be wounded physically or emotionally by a virtual mammary.

Umm... dude... I think you've got "gratuitous titty images" confused with an extremely twisted and self absorbed character who flaunts her femininity as a means of unsettling and thus gaining power over others, specifically members of the opposite gender.

I see a very interesting, complex, and somewhat tragic character, you reminisce about afternoons spent masturbating to your dad's crusty old porn mags... Which one of us is being immature here?

Are you saying adults aren't interested in boobies? Or are you saying only children buy products with boobs in them? From what I see Elexis has always been well-endowed, and most of the promo videos and screenshots show Elexis "as covered as logistically possible" [img]/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] If you're honest, does Lara Croft's outfit leave much to the imagination? I think not [img]/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

This is supposed to be a mature game, remember? [img]/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

PS - if this post is a result of you only having access to Hustler, I sympathise with you [img]/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] lol

I kind of agree. I think some people took his comment the wrong way - he's not asking the game to be censored or anything and he didn't say that he was offended. He's just noting that we can play games without someone having space hopper boobs. It carries on with the gamer stereotype that we're ignorant of women. It's not a game I'd crack out to try and convert my girlfriend to the world of simulated bloodbaths.

The game has 2 very different women in it and 2 very different body styles. That being said these are also both very intelligent women in power.

I think maybe your getting lost in the boobs and forgetting the rest of the story. That may well say more about men than it does women.

Default Re: Sin:Episodes is Good, But You Guys Need To Grow Up

The ending credit movie thing is not only childish, it seems kidish. I felt like I was playing a 10 year olds game when I beat sin. It was a real let down.

I'd rather play something like quake1, where I heard screeching sound effects of nails, and people screaming and dying inside a warehouse, like they did. Then getting totally crazy in quake2 with full nin soundtracks and crazy shit, games need to be more evil. Especially fps's, I dont feel like playing a kiddy fps, sin and wages of sin weren't kiddy or childish... There was some very impressive parts.

But i feel kinda let down from this, I probly will not be purchasing sin ep2, sorry. Shoulda had activision develop it again.

activision develop ? they publish games not develop.

Quake was developed by iD sofware and SiN was developed by ritual.

And i love evil themes in FPS games as much as u if not more, but u shouldnt expect every game to be evil, sin is clearly a more duke3d esque tongue & cheek game, shoulda been kinda obvious i would think.

There are no warehouses in quake 1 [img]/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] And although I love the game to bits, the ending ranks amongst the worst seen. A giant flapping blob exploding on screen, and then the same scrolling story kind of thing as Doom 2 before it, and about as much imagination put into it [img]/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] No thanks [img]/forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

More gushing irony, I find the absurd violence, crucifictions, torture, blood monsters and grotesque mutilations extremely immature one-upping of video games. Stupid, lame, plotless gore and sensationalized stupidity for the densensitized world audience.

Sure, Sin does a little of that but it keeps it mostly light and cool. But if you think that T&A and jokes are more juvinille than Doom and Quake's sawing of limbs and other tired horror themes, you assuredly need therepy.

I can't say I agree but I was conscious of the fact that the practically nude woman appeal seemed to be played up a little bit at release. I think Ritual was going for the over-the-top, tongue in cheek, Kill Bill action movie kind of atmosphere in the game. Is it experimental and high concept? not really, but they did create a fun 'feel' to the game and I don't really think you have to call it immature

i agree with the original poster of this thread slightly , there is a time and place for this sort of thing and games are not part of this . call me what ever you want but i do find this wrong if my child or nephew get ahold of this mod , and no i am not gay before you post this . i have a wife and 2 kids [img]/forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img] .
if you need this kind of thing added easily to your game to make it sell you need a new job

Umm, the game is rated M. If you dont want to see "M" rated material, you might want to consider just playing games with the "T" rating. If someone to young gets ahold of the game, it is not Rituals fault in anyway. They clearly put the "M" there, so really, you know what you are getting into before you buy it.
(im not trying to be a asshole here either, just stating facts.)

Please try to keep in mind that Elexis is not a new character. She was created way back in the 90's when big tits and skimpy clothes in video games was all the rage. Given that she was presented with a certain physique and style back then, would it make any sense for the developers to give her reduction surgery and a more tasteful wardrobe for Sin E? I think not.

The only NEW female character this time around is Jessica who definitely exhibits a much more conservative and realistic style of character design than many other games released in the past few years and certainly in comparison to Sin 1.

It's interesting to see a number of people want more nudity and others want less. Personally I don't care either way, unless it's censorship just for the "think of the children" campaign.

You're making an assumption there, and missing the "Elexis' character is already years old" point - what makes you think boobs were added to sell the product? [img]/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] They were there all along - and people shouldn't be offended by it, since we see it every day walking down the street (at least in summer anyway [img]/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img])

Too many people assume that things are added with no good reason, especially if they offend in some way. Boobs are boobs - just live with it and play the damn game [img]/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] Lordy, if it's not kids being influenced by games and going on a rampage, it's human beings being offended by boobs (that, incidentally, are only naked boobs when MODDED by a player - in any other case, they're just big boobs).

Personally, I was sold on the game by screenshots, interviews, and the main episodes website - and I find it offensive that you think I was sold by boobs [img]/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] lol. Jessica is my girl, not Elexis, and her boobs are quite concealed [img]/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] There are people who'll buy a game based on boobs, and there are people who will not - leave them to their decisions, it has little to do with other people's opinions, and that's the way it should be.
