How eager nipples and a tight thong fought casual sexism photo
How eager nipples and a tight thong fought casual sexism
by Jim Sterling

Hawken publisher Meteor has, in its office, a piece of art featuring a woman with a bountiful underboob and very little in the way of clothing, hung in place by CEO Mark Long. The half-naked woman, named "Ruby Underboob" by employees, left a bit of a sour taste in one female employee's mouth.

"How, you ask, can I stay mad at a sweet young belle who has so obviously taken a break from her important welding to offer me apiping hot cup of coffee and/or a vigorous hand job?" wrote the employee on The Hawkeye Initiative. "If you don’t already know the answer, you might want to check out things like #1ReasonWhy, and the Bechdel Test, and also this, and this, and this and this, and all these other things. (And while we’re talking you should check out this other bullshit right here.)"

Rather than simply vent anonymously on a blog, however, the worker decided to do something proactive, and illustrate a point with a pointed illustration. 

"I approached Sam Kirk, a wickedly funny co-worker who shared my sentiment. Sam, turns out, is a very talented artist who can be bribed-slash-inspired using a medley of feminist indignation, hysterical giggling, and two $90 bottles of añejo tequila."

Jimquisition: Objectification And ... Men?
by Jim Sterling

A common argument in the ongoing debate over gender and videogames is that women and men both are equally objectified. Is that really true?

As always, Emperor God King Jim Sterling puts His holy foot down and delivers wisdom true to the masses. He totally isn't smug about it, either!

Kotaku lied: Nintendo loves penises AND butts!

In a recent article on Kotaku, writer Patricia Hernandez pointed out that, while Nintendo will censor asses, it has no problem showcasing a delicious penis.  She used Animal Crossing: New Leaf as evidence, criticizing Ni...

Gearbox artist slams Dragon's Crown character design photo
Gearbox artist slams Dragon's Crown character design
by Jim Sterling

The Dragon's Crown "thing" shows no sign of stopping, with vehement and sometimes venomous opinions flying this way and that. To bring you up to speed, Vanillaware's upcoming brawler features a big-boobed Sorceress, the design of which is causing a ruckus. 

Now an artist from a completely different studio is in the mix, Gearbox environmental artist Shaylyn Hamm. To say she's not impressed by George Kamitani's mammary magician is putting it lightly. 

"I want to see more women getting interested in games and game development, but stuff like this only serves to further cement the idea that you're stepping into a male hobby rather than something that is more inclusive," she wrote on The Escapist's forums

"Also, this is the first time I've seen that character and holy shit, ahahahahahaha. That's actually something that made its way into a basically finished video game, fucking lol! Some juvenile delinquent kid in my 5th grade class used to draw girls that looked like that (only without the creepy blank, featureless samefaces and wizard hats), and I think he was actually better at it. I also think he's in jail now. This is amazing."

Jimquisition: Boob Wars and Dragon Crowns

Dragon's Crown has become the latest game involved in a big argument. Big boobs, burly dwarves, and Kotaku were all involved. Gender issues in games are important. They are worth thinking about. They are, contrary to po...

Bethesda's Next Game, Killer Is Dead-Sexy & Lobo DLC
by Max Scoville

Hello boys and girls, here's today's Destructoid Show for you to rub your dirty little eyeballs all over. Mmmm. Yes, just like that.

Bethesda is done with Skyrim, and they've now begun teasing their next exciting mystery project. Killer Is Dead has dirty nasty sexy gigolo missions for you to do when your parents aren't in the room. Respawn Entertainment trademarks "Titan," whatever that means. XCOM promotional materials are disappearing from the web, possibly to pave way for a rebranding, and Lobo is the first DLC for Injustice: Gods Among Us.

Confessions: All the RPG girls I've loved before photo
Confessions: All the RPG girls I've loved before
by Dale North

My type? Hmmm. I don't know that I have a type. You see, I like redheads, but I also dig blueheads. I like tall girls, small girls, old girls, and relatively young (but still age appropriate) dragon-girls. Graceful and sweet healing/support types are more my speed than tomboyish tanks, but that doesn't mean I won't consider them. And who doesn't love the sister-but-not-really-a-sister childhood friend?

As gross as it is to say, and for at least this article, I suppose that if I had a type, it would be 2D. Not real. Impossible, and could never exist girls. My type would be RPG girls. But not all of them! I've fallen for very specific ones over my many years of living with my face buried in role-playing games.

I've rounded up by biggest RPG crushes in this Valentine's Day lovefest.

Review: Seduce Me photo
Review: Seduce Me
by Josh Tolentino

Seduce Me is only on our radar because it was developed by folks who worked on the Triple-A Killzone franchise, and later denied a place on Steam's Greenlight project. We likely wouldn't have noticed it, much less be reviewing it, had Valve not opted to shut it out. But here we are.

There are myriad reasons that gamers of all stripes should support a game like Seduce Me. Games should be free to tastefully tackle sex as a subject without being punished commercially or by culture at large. As an effective outlet for base urges, games should be able to do more than violence and still be commercially successful. An "AO" rating from the ESRB shouldn't be a kiss of death. The culture at large should be less shy about one of the most natural human activities. The list goes on.

Unfortunately, for gamers and for developer No Reply, Seduce Me is not the game that will do the things above.
