    Miranda to me was conveyed as a troubled soul, not like Jack, but in a different way. She was made to be perfect but she did not embrace it, she did not want to be defined by it, and so the butt shot feels out of character for her (and unnecessary/weird/creepy to me personally).

    This theory doesn't hold up as far as interactions with Shepard throughout the entirety of ME2 is concerned (which is the primary focus of camera angles changing), there's no secret covert intelligence agent seducing thing going on, both her and Jacob are rather up front about both their backgrounds and that they're there to keep an eye on you for the guy up top, and what their relation to Cerberus is.

    Miranda was a genetically engineered human to be in peak physical and mental condition, as she points out multiple times. She's one of the companions you can fuck, struts around on high heels, wears a skintight suit showing plenty of cleavage and wears a damned collar. On top of that, they slapped the face of an extremely attractive woman on top of it.

    If you don't think she's about sex appeal, you're living on a different planet.

    edit: Iirc even during her romance, she talks about how she wants Shepard to admire her body or some stupid similar stuff.

    If you think those camera angles were anything but pandering directly to the player with no connection to the narrative, I have a bridge to sell you.

    They're both, why else wouldn't it be present for all female characters?

    Guys ME2 was already a WJS mess, people were clothed during their sex scenes Also just play in on PC and mod the game, it can be as erotic as you want and much better looking then the legendary edition is ever gona be, fans do it for free and make better stuff, if you know what i mean.

    Just to add, whilst I am not a prude and not of the opinion that no sexualised character can ever be in a game, anyone else get a bit embarrassed when an overtly sexualised character is added into a game? Like, who do they think is playing this? Who do they think I am? Do they not know about smartphones and the internet etc?

    Sex sells. Miranda Lawson is nothing compared to many characters, both male and female, in other games, movies, etc... .

    All right, gentlemen, let's review. The year is 2021 - that's two-zero-two-one, as in the 21st Century's perfect vision - and I am sorry to say the world has become a pussy-whipped, Brady Bunch version of itself, run by a bunch of masked sissies.

    Then I think they have a very low opinion. I mean, it is a CGI character. In a video game. Most people if they want titillation from media, I can think of better places to go. Are you honestly telling me that the average adult western male is into CGI sexiness? I say adult because it is mainly adults who play these games, not 13 year olds with a permaboner.

    One of the earliest pieces of man made art is a rock shaped to represent a thick, heavy chested woman indicating fertility. 37% of the internet is made out of pornographic material.

    And it's not just men, you can betcha my girlfriend, and her friends, like to have their in-game avatars have thin waists, cleavage and high heels.

    Is it everyone? I wouldn't say so, but for a great many people it is. Sex sells, including pixel titties.

    You should get over your insecurities - no sane person is gonna judge you for getting aroused by a cartoon - it's perfectly normal for a male to get aroused by arousing imagery, no matter the source of said imagery. A male can get aroused by imagination alone. So it's no wonder sexy CGI does the work too. It triggers the imagination of sexual nature and it's a pleasant thing.

    P.S. There are pixel art sexy games. PIXEL FUCKING ART.

    Sex sells, it always has.

    What's more embarassing is really people who are not secure enough in it to have to invent story reasons for why there's a camera angle focusing on a characters ass in a completely unrelated situation, instead of just straight up admitting they like it that way cause they like butts.

    Well it's a weird thing to defend honestly, which is why people aren't defending the butt shots directly but attack it as censorship or some other weird.

    I defend it exactly for what it is - butt shots. There was absolutely no need to edit them out. I liked them and they created many memes that are part of ME culture now. And the reason for butt removal is censorial in nature there's no doubt about it. That's not like they didn't do similar things before.

    There's nothing wrong with selling sex to people who want to buy it. It's only bad when sex is used to sell you something completely different, a.k.a. misleading marketing.

    In all seriousness. You people who refuse to buy it because they edited out the ass in a trailer are morons. People who refuse to buy it because it contained the ass are idiots. The amount of chest beating in this thread arguing both sides is ludicrous. No one buys a game because of this in the first place and the only reason its a controversy is frankly because at some point people just want to cause controversy and don't really have a good reason except to try to find something to bitch and complain about.

    You call it censor
    Most of us call it some weird angle shot that doesn't really match the context of the conversation so yes there is doubt about your "censorial in nature" perspective.
    I mean does it make sense to you that the focus is on the persons behind when your talking about the end of the world?

    I like the buttshots, I distinctly remember spitting out my drink of laughter when her ass took up half of my computer screen all of a sudden. And as I stated earlier in this thread, I'd love me some some added Wrex buttshots in this legendary edition too.

    It's equally silly to be so god damn hyper sensitive about asses too, though. Doubly so when people try to claim some moral high-ground by being a butt and sex purist, about a game series that basically made sleeping with your companions a standard expectation in RPG's (despite earlier RPG's also offering it).

    It's ok, we are all entitled to our opinions. Doesn't mean the others must suffer because you felt momentary weirdness.

    Yes, perfect sense. Especially if you realize that the focus most of the time was on Shepard or some other character and the ass just got in the shot.
    YOU decided to FOCUS on it. Weirdo. It's not Miranda's fault she's got a perfect butt. It's her daddy's doing.
