Tracking gamer related idiocy, obscenity and genius across the internet. And we want to know about it.
Will post rational thoughts from gamers too, the kind you least expect. As ever, submit below.
John Epler (of BioWare): I've sad it before, and I will say it again - we are not going to give you a sexuality toggle.
It suggests that same-sex content is something that is somehow worth being protected from, and that's not a viewpoint we're ever going to support.
Don't want to initiate a romance with a character of the same gender, turn them down. Maybe they'll be a little disappointed, but that's life. If you've never experienced being turned down by someone you're romantically interested in (and suffered the disappointment, however large or small, associated with this) then you are probably Jensen Ackles, in which case may I say that I am a tremendous fan of your work?
But yes. When it comes to inclusivity versus exclusivity (and, let's be clear, suggesting that being protected from that darned same-sex content is a valid goal is heavily on the side of exclusivity), we will always fall on the side of inclusivity. Unwanted advances from someone of the same gender is, for all intents and purposes, something we view in exactly the same way as unwanted advances from someone of the opposite gender. Turn them down and move on with your life.
RayAnt1987 @ John Epler: Yes you can, and do not switch, but the dialogues that were in the Dragon Age 2
did your character or a bad or good . The neutral version, like "Sorry, buddy, I like girls. But you're my friend and I'm glad.", Was absent. We either get the location of that Anders, or its disapproval. Although life can smooth out these things with absolutely no damage to relations. This is of course if realism in the fantasy game is so important.
Do not think that I'm against gays, but to be rude chock, responding negatively to these conversations, did not want to ^_^
Why are so many people complaining about this.
This is the way of the world today its 2012 now
A man can love a man
A woman can love a woman
And a blue alien chick can love a man or a woman
And so on
But its in the world its on TV and now its in gaming and as a straight male I say About time and Well done to EA for sticking those Choices of romance in the game.
Ending sucked but I’ll leave that alone
