Ubisoft: A female character would be hard and take time.
Nintendo: Here’s 32 different playable characters with multiple distinctly-modeled costumes because we’re not WHINY SHITS.

can people who don’t understand the first thing about videogames stop bitching about whatever creed whatever

if you’re not such WHINY SHITS why don’t you either a) play those games and stop snivelling or b) get off your fat asses and make the game you want if it’s “so easy” 

Guy who has taken at least one game design class here. I only got to 8-bit level games when I took the class, and getting basic arm and leg movement to work properly was a mother bitch for everyone, especially a first timer. I don’t even want to think about the process that goes into rendering a decent quality 3D model with realistic body, hair, weapon, and clothing movement. And you can’t just easily change the face and add a pair of breasts to a 3D model and expect it to look and play fine. It requires further work. Work that Ubisoft couldn’t put in due to time restraints. You see, Assassin’s Creed has become Ubisoft’s yearly cash cow. Ubisoft is to Assassin’s Creed what Activision is to Call of Duty and EA is to every fucking sports franchise. They need to crank out a new one every year, or else their investors lose money and get pissed. I find it strange that a lot of people who complain “WHY NO LADY, GAY, OR BLACK PEOPLE?! CHANGING PROGRAM CODE IS EASY!!!1” have never taken a crack at software coding ever. Also, the game takes place during the French Revolution. Yes, more women stood up for their rights back then, but there weren’t that many female assasins during that time period. Being mostly historically accurate is one of the things that Ubisoft tries to do with the franchise. All the NPCs in the games were real people who died in real life. This is why Assassin’s Creed III: Liberation worked; it made sense for a female assassin in that time period and that location. As for women getting beheaded, again, IT WAS THE FRENCH FUCKING REVOLUTION. EVERYONE GOT THEIR FUCKING HEAD CUT OFF, GENDER BE DAMNED.

Furthermore, and this is the most important point. It’s just a game. It’s not real. It doesn’t affect your life in any way shape or form. The world will still turn if you can’t play as a one legged, overweight, transgendered black woman with a lisp. Enjoy the game for the gameplay, not for what your character has in their pants.

the amount of entitlement in here is off the charts: “HOW DARE MY FRIEND GET SURGERY I DON’T APPROVE OF!  ITS A PERSONAL BETRAYAL!  WHY DIDN’T SHE CONSIDER MY FEELS?!?!?!”
yeah, I would call this toxic friendship, except the toxic friend is OP.  Be as fat as you want, but don’t treat your friends as manifestations of your will who are obligated to remain spineless props so you can feel better about yourself because misery loves company.

Two tweets from Anita that I could find about AC: Unity

Shut the fuck up

does she know anything about the french revolution

She doesn’t know anything about anything 

ok I’ll give her a slight edge in the character department, but the beheading shit?

Christ, this is like that one time PeTA complained about Black Flag having whaling missions in a game about pirates

And here we see the Sarkeesian in her natural habitat.  Not giving a single shit about context, or the fact that men and women got their heads cut off during the French Revolution.  Won’t somebody please put her out of her misery.

Rareware Fans: "We want a new Banjo-Kazooie game! Just like how it used to be!"
Microsoft: "OKAY HERE'S SOME LEGO CARS WITH A FAT BEAR AND DUMB GAY BIRD"
Rareware Fans: "...oh... Well... Oh I know, let's turn to Nintendo. NINTENDO! We want a sequel to Donkey Kong 64! With a big open worl---"
Nintendo: "OKAY SO CHECK THIS. IT'S DONKEY KONG. BUT YOU CONTROL IT WITH BONGO DRUMS. REMEMBER THE BONGO DRUMS FROM DONKEY KONG 64? COOL, RIGHT?"
Rareware Fans: ".....okay that hurts. Uh, Microsoft. Come on. Conker. Remember how beautiful Live and Reloaded looked? Imagine how much you could do with a sequel two gens of consoles later. Come on."
Microsoft: "You want Conker in a game?"
Rareware Fans: "YES!"
Microsoft: "YOU WANT CONKER THE SQUIRREL OF BAD FUR DAY FAME IN A GAME!?"
Rareware Fans: "YES PLEASE"
Microsoft: "MAKE IT. YOUR FUCKING SELF."

If the post above doesn’t singularly explain in one mere sentence how entirely fucked up tumblr is, then I don’t know what does.  You couldn’t ask for a better demonstration.

For far too many people, joining tumblr is like walking into a social clothing store, and picking out the latest fads to wear to “fit in” and feel “special”.

You don’t need other people to tell you how to think, or what to beAnd you sure as hell shouldn’t be glamorizing persecution and oppression, nor should you be lowering the value of suffering, just so you can apply it to yourselves for your own, sad little game of “Who’s the biggest victim?”

This “social justice” bullshit has already driven away over seven million users, and made tumblr a disastrous investment for Yahoo, because they can’t get any advertisers to touch it with a ten-foot pole.

Also, never forget that the person who first made “die cis scum” into a catch phrase later decided that they were no longer trans, and that it was “just a phase” they had gone through.

It’s one thing to know in your heart who you really are inside.  It’s another thing entirely to appropriate labels out of a desire for popularity, or to make up new reasons to feel “oppressed” just to get attention.  It’s also horribly offensive to those who genuinely are oppressed for their differences.

this reminds me of that one post of someone saying that Johnny Bravo was no longer enjoyable for them once they logged onto tumblr and became a feminist.

Like, what the fuck?  You’re going to stop enjoying something because a mob mentality told you to?  What kind of coward are you?

Married With Children is my favorite sitcom of all time and features a sexist prick who hates his family as a main character but if I’m supposed to drop shows like it and just start hating it out of the blue in order to be “accepting” and “progressive” I would be a fucking miserable shell of my former self, devoid of happiness and joy and probably never be able to leave my house, in fear of encountering things that others may deem “offensive” or “triggering”.

Am I the only one who is sick of seeing the Revlon nail polish advertisements where there is a man’s face being caressed by some gorgeously painted nails? This advertisement contains so many of the problems with how the media advertises to women.

1. They segregate the woman’s body into parts. All…

I envy the problem free little existance you have if you are getting this fucking upset over a fucking nail polish advert

get some real problems, you pampered little princess
