Dragon's Crown fans the fires with new trailers

Dragon's Crown is still a couple months away from release, but that isn't stopping Atlus from keeping the unexpectedly high profile brawler fresh in people's minds. Putting yet another log on the fire, the publisher has dropped another pair of trailers to showcase the gorgeous PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita title. 

This time around we get a better look at the Amazon and Wizard as they display their unique abilities and combat styles. Yep. Still looks as brilliant as ever. Be sure to look out for Vanillaware's latest on August 6.

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!

The cover art for Dragon's Crown is decidedly safe

George Kamitani's female character designs for Dragon's Crown have received a rather surprising amount of attention -- that's ... that's still going on, isn't it? -- but at least for the game's box art, the presentation is fa...

Dragon's Crown box art is [insert extreme opinion here]

Atlus has unveiled the final Japanese box art for Dragon's Crown, the latest sidescrolling action title from Vanillaware, and it's pretty tame from the looks of things. You almost wouldn't guess that the game is currently emb...

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."

In defense of boobies photo
In defense of boobies
by Vito Gesualdi

Let me preface this article by stating a few simple facts. I am a young, white, American male who consumes vast amounts of pornography. As such, I am occasionally drawn to depictions of the female form which are perhaps outside the realm of realism, with silicone implants and soft lighting helping to emphasize certain erotic areas.

Am I ashamed of my interest in these depictions? About as ashamed as anyone might be when discussing their sexual interests. However, I am also a logically thinking adult who understands that real women don’t look anything like the bizarre sexual fantasies on my computer monitor, nor would I want them to.
