Not only have they apparently been created for the sole purpose of titillation, but they're being sent off to fight severely under-dressed and lacking in any semblance of body armour. With the winter months fast approaching, I get cold just by not having the top button on my coat done up.... read more

Crytek defends Warface's female character skins in Russian r

So the Russians are culturally thirty years behind the rest of Europe and rather than say "no, we don't think that's right," Crytek pander to them? And people wonder why I have so little respect for that particular developer.

Still at least they have female skins I suppose, Activision are only just catching up with that idea themselves.

We really need a facepalm smiley because, sometimes, rolleyes just doesn't suffice.
Oh well. Sometimes I do despair of some of the developers in the industry that underpins my hobby. :roll:

Well since it's Crytek you know they'll be lovely looking breasts, albeit breasts with not substance.

Clearly you've never seen Spanish daytime TV, it's not all rucking with livestock you know. :wink:

Still, I think fair should be fair, so lets get some shirtless beefcakes in there.

Hence why every game should have an in depth character creator - make the character you want, be they sensible sexy or just plain dumb

Then we'd have avatars, but no real characters...

True, but I was referring more to mulitplayer (probably should have made that clearer lol)

I prefer Male characters for this reason, I hate when Dev's make games that feed the idea of males needing to stare at a pair of B**bs on a female to make them want to play, It puts me off buying those games.

Metalrodent: I liked Saints Row: The Thrird's Character creation, They did it right you could have flat chested or a huge chest and same with the males....
