    Sadly this is how it works nowadays, I just wonder for how long... publishing such trash over and over is bound to affect their reputation, and there are reports that some of these websites are already losing traffic possibly over such bullshit strategies.

    Like I said in the previous post, those sites are loosing traffic, and some are getting closed. I think it may also be a general shift from journalism to YouTube/Twitch for gaming info.

    These people are just fucking insane and pushing their agenda whenever they can, I just dont get why people can't just shut the fuck up and get on with it without getting "offended" every 2 seconds.

    There's this horrible realisation that BfA could all just be a fever dream caused by Argus cleaving us.
    Inb4 the twist is that Sylvanas has been a Dreadlord/Dead the whole of BfA and we've been doing someone else's dirty work.

    Well, probably just like in any other FPS games - cut scenes, mirrors, character screens etc. They may not go for subtle approach, judging by that in-game poster of a female with a huge boner visible through clothes.

    Oh I don't mind it at all, but it will fuel all the "social agenda" shit. But as it was said, fuck both of the sides.

    Something we can all agree on.

    No i mean like, using your example of the poster, what if it's the thin male body build with curved jaw line modifier character model and it's both an option for a male character and "transgender male" character. How are they going to tell the difference?

    Totally missed it, my apologies.... but to be honest, I don't know if it will stop at gaming info the way it's going.

    I might be wrong but I don't believe it is so much about having a clearly defined trans option but about being able to select any and all body types and facial features and such when creating your character. Not being limited to selecting option A with just male body types and features or option B with female body types and features. It could also affect how characters in game refer to your character as well I guess.

    I don't recall if there's any specific rules for it (like for example there are rules for getting animal features and I am positive they expanded on it more later), but I only have the 1990 2nd ed core rulebook and looking the series up there were A LOT of supplemental books. Soooo... Maybe?

    Hence the exploitative "mix it up" marketing gimmick, yes.

    And before anyone thinks I'm jumping on that bandwagon, I get that the idea that this is exploitative, shallow corporate marketing is sort of the entire point of a cyberpunk dystopia. I've got no problem with its inclusion in the game; the megacorps are never the "good guys" in anything.

    About all this transgender nonsense that is now being complained about, i'm glad the witcher wasn't put under microscope and that fictional world wasn't held to real life world views.

    I also highly doubt that people who are complaining about this have any intention of playing any game of this nature. Or maybe we should expose those people to how life on this planet looks like outside the safety of the western world, drop them in the slums of some south american nation, or african etc.

    These armchair mobile phone addicted activists are trash and a waste of space on this planet.

    This is the basic point of Cyberpunk. It isn't our reality in the future, it is a completely different reality with its own history and a major portion of that is how Megacorps are massively evil and exploitative. This thread sadly is devolving into exactly what idiot bloggers want which is less about the actual game and more about some real world divisive topic to generate clicks. This is a world where gender, tech, animal, and other things are fluid within the world already by the sheer nature of augmentation and its prominence in the game worlds society.

    As someone who has been playing the game since the mid 90s, I'm excited and it looks good so far. I wish we had a few more archetype options but I figured you'd have to limit it pretty greatly to have a cohesive story line. I look forward to it and having a good game with current gen graphics set in a good cyberpunk world.

    You mean other than the people who complained about the lack of "people of color" in a game based on Polish mythology?

    Ah yeah forgot about that, oh well that shows how much such silly complaints stay with me. I really doubt we are going to spend a lot of time talking about that either. Will be mostly something for people who spend most of their day on twitter or something silly.

    To be fair, the Megacorps aren't far from how modern advertising is done. Minorities and causes are used as props because it is profitable, not because its the "right thing!" to do.

    If anything, this "controversy" shows how little depth there is to most fictional advertising in games.
