In that picture the female armor actually looks like it would be more effective due to its design. Whatever is on the males armor isn't practical, though the curved female armor actually looks like a practical design. So out of those two, though it covers a little less, the female armor would actually be effective.

Apparently not since apparently wearing shorts makes a set of armor completely different and sexualized, dood.
#30 - comicironic (02/28/2016) [-]
Look at the comparison pic YOU posted.
The only shared skin between the male and female armour is the head and arms.
What is the female exposing more of?:
- Belly (sexual)
- Thighs (sexual)
- Cleavage (you better believe that's sexual)
Not only are these massive skin areas, they do make the armour less covering and more sexual.
You cannot now argue that you haven't seen an example of armour which is more revealing for the female version.

And I didn't argue that, nor did I ever argue that, dood. I argued that for all the games I've played, there either weren't that many differences between male and female armor, or that if there were "sexy" armors for females, there were also several "sexy" armor for males.

"For all the complaining I see about female armor, I have never actually seen a game where this is true, dood."
You claimed you had never seen an example of a female armour which was far more revealing than the same armour for men, in a game where the reverse wasn't also true.
I'd dispute the case for Tera, since I haven't seen any armours more revealing for men than women, but Firefall is now an example of a game where there is armour that is more revealing for women than men in a sexual way.
#33 - newprinny (02/28/2016) [-]
Yeah, and then I expanded on my initial statement by saying that I have seen games with sexy female armor, but there have been sexy male armor to counter them, dood. In context with the original post, and the usual complaints of people that complain about it, I was saying that I've never played a game where most if not all female armor was sexy armor compared to men's regular armor.
#34 - comicironic (02/28/2016) [-]
I also linked examples of female armour being much more sexy that male armour in TERA.

Yes, because in the context of the "men get real armor, and women only get smutty chain bikinis" complaint, several examples of male armor being just as sexy as female armor shows that the creators of the game are just as willing to sexualize men as they are women, dood. I also never said TERA "doesn't count," I said that TERA was the worst example of this that I could think of, but it has several sexy male armors to compare to sexy female armor.

>several examples of male armor being just as sexy as female armor shows that the creators of the game are just as willing to sexualize men as they are women, dood

But it doesn't devalue those cases where the women were MORE sexualised.
As I said, the equal sexualisation is meant to be the default. No matter how sexy the armour is, the natural situation is that both sexes wear it as sexily.
There are many cases in TERA where the female armour is blatantly more sexual. No matter how many other examples you bring up of armours being equally revealing, that doesn't change.
What might change it is you finding male armours which are significantly more revealing than female ones, but I haven't seen any of those.
#39 - newprinny (02/28/2016) [-]
And I'm saying that since there are several examples of sexualized costumes for both genders, it doesn't fall in line with the usual complaint that most if not all of female armor is sexy while most if not all of men's armor is space marine football player armor, dood. It doesn't matter that there's more female than male when you sit down and count each and every one of them, the presence of both means that they're not only sexualizing women and they've not afraid of "disempowering" males or whatever by making them sexy as people like to argue. I even went out of my way to explicitly say three times now that TERA is the worst example I can think of. That means that it's the closest I can think of that I've played that would prove their point, but since both sexes are put in skimpy clothing they call armor, it's not as effective.

But you're only considering the outliers.
There are also plenty of armours that only sexualise the female characters, and leave the male characters looking pretty standard and well-protected.

", but since both sexes are put in skimpy clothing they call armor, "
Granted, they made revealing outfits for both sexes, but that's not the point being discussed, because the issue is that female outfits are MORE revealing.
That some of the outfits are revealing for both doesn't detract from that point, because it doesn't refute the inequality: it just provides an example where they're equal.

>It doesn't matter that there's more female than male when you sit down and count each and every one of them
>the statistical inequality doesn't matter
Then what fucking does matter?
What, out of all of this, would have mattered to you?
What possible example could I have found to refute your position, if the very idea that female armour is generally more revealing that male armour, to the extent that many armours are basically metal bikinis, doesn't refute it?
Why, in a comparison of inequality, does INEQUALITY not factor in to your judgement?

Because the armors are not overwhelmingly sexualized in favor of female armor, dood. The usual complaints from comics like the original post and others like it is that most if not all female armor is the skimpy clothing, while most if not all male armor is practical armor bordering on covering too much to give a sense of more power, with similar item sets being extremely different depending on the sex to the point that it's the difference of space marine armor and a metal bikini. I then said that TERA is the most pronounced and closest example I could think of that I'd played, but since there were many examples of male and female armor that were equally sexualized, it doesn't make the point of male armor always being made to be powerful and female armor always being made to be sexy as well. It doesn't matter if there's more one way or the other since both sides are represented fairly well. It would matter if out of all the male armors, there were only a handful of armor that was anything less than head to toe covered in plate, and for females, there were only a handful of armor that had anything more than a couple leather straps, but even in TERA that's not true, dood.

>the only difference
It's a pretty big difference when you look at the skin otherwise covered. It's also not the only difference: there's the cleavage in the chestpiece for the woman but not the man, and the codpiece.

Armours where the man is as exposed as the woman are the norm. How can you think they excuse the bikini armours? That doesn't even make sense.
#25 - newprinny (02/28/2016) [-]
Yes, the only major differences are that the guy wore pants and the female's robot bits are slightly slimmer, dood. The female armor covers a little less of her stomach, and unless there's something being covered by the gun, the male's "codpiece" is just the crotch of the guy's pants. Visually it's a huge difference, but only because you're paying more attention to the female variant, if the guy wore a pair of shorts, they would be nearly piece for piece identical sets of armor that only vary by the size and frame of the character wearing them. I don't play firefall, and this is the closest image I could find to that piece of armor that you posted, so it's what I'm going off of.

In terms of TERA itself:
repair-her-armor.tumblr.com/post/50979897093/rarexkandy-asked-im-all-for-this-blog-and-all
If you scroll down to the images, there are plenty of examples of women in what is basically bikini armour.
Sure, some of the men show flesh, but it's rarer and a lot less.
#49 - anon (02/28/2016) [-]
The difference is that men can easily be depicted in a sexy way without showing skin. Women can't. except to people like me with strange fetishes for fully armored babes Women and men work differently. Men value youth/fertility and women value strength/security. This is all speaking generally, but these video games are targeted at a general audience which is why the outfits are the way they are.

TLDR: It's not problematic, either don't play the game or stop whining and trying to control other people you emotional child.

The only difference between the male and female firefall armor you posted is that the guy wore pants and the girl wore shorts. The guy's tank top might also be slightly longer to cover his abs, but his gun's in the way, dood.
And whoever runs that blog put a few guys in there, but left out some male armors that are pretty on par in terms of exposure to female armor. It's just really not a big deal, and not nearly enough to be complained about as much as it is.

Skyrim's is pretty lenient. Hide armor is a loosely tied vest for women with the standard protective... kilt thing made of leather. For men it's the same except for the top, which is... four straps of leather forming an X on your chest with one metal dinner plate for protection.

Studded ups the ante with a better covering and securely tied vest with a layer or two of protective girdles around the midsection. It also, surprise surprise, adds metal studs to most of the kilt and the leggings beneath cover more of your legs. For men it's essentially the Hide armor but with a sleeveless leather tunic beneath the dinner plate.

As far as I can remember, every other armor follows a stylistic rule of design, with nobody being stupid and going for sexy. The exceptions are really old or really tribal armors, like Ancient Nordic with its metal key sections but dried jerkyleather looking titstraps and the Forsworn excuse for armor, which is literally handfuls of goat skin tied around your bits.

There's some differences between Male and Female armor in Monster Hunter too. While there are Male armors that are "sexy" the female counterpart is equally "sexy". However, there are many armor sets where the Male armor is actual armor and the female isn't. One of my favorite sets in early game is Hermitaur armor. For a Male, you're a Football player. The Female, not so much.
Not a complaint, but just citing another game.

Then you also have shit like barbarian "armor", which is usually loincloth and boots with bare torso, which would easily pass as the male equivalent. Then you also get that there are games where female characters have more armor options than male characters, and quite a few of them are better than most of the male options. Then you have the fact that if the games were going for realism in the first place, plenty of robe sets would be deemed impractical (though admittedly for different reasons). The "female bikini armor" is just cherrypicking and a tired old joke at this point.

He's saying the game is so close to porn including it would be like saying "There is too much sex appeal in our movies, just look at 'Teenage girl gets fucked by 10 black dudes' "

>there's also no male characters to compare it to, thus making it not relevant to the male armor vs female armor concern
Speaking specifically about the same item set looking like power armor on males, and metal bikinis on females, I barely if ever see anything close to that, dood. But if you want to count the glorified porn game, then fine, count the glorified porn game, but since there is no "male armor" to compare it to, I felt that it wasn't relevant.

Well, here's an example from Firefall.

In terms of TERA itself:
repair-her-armor.tumblr.com/post/50979897093/rarexkandy-asked-im-all-for-this-blog-and-all
If you scroll down to the images, there are plenty of examples of women in what is basically bikini armour.
Sure, some of the men show flesh, but it's rarer and a lot less.

The difference is that men can easily be depicted in a sexy way without showing skin. Women can't. except to people like me with strange fetishes for fully armored babes Women and men work differently. Men value youth/fertility and women value strength/security. This is all speaking generally, but these video games are targeted at a general audience which is why the outfits are the way they are.

TLDR: It's not problematic, either don't play the game or stop whining and trying to control other people you emotional child.
#21 - newprinny (02/28/2016) [-]
The only difference between the male and female firefall armor you posted is that the guy wore pants and the girl wore shorts. The guy's tank top might also be slightly longer to cover his abs, but his gun's in the way, dood.
And whoever runs that blog put a few guys in there, but left out some male armors that are pretty on par in terms of exposure to female armor. It's just really not a big deal, and not nearly enough to be complained about as much as it is.
#23 - comicironic (02/28/2016) [-]
>the only difference
It's a pretty big difference when you look at the skin otherwise covered. It's also not the only difference: there's the cleavage in the chestpiece for the woman but not the man, and the codpiece.

Armours where the man is as exposed as the woman are the norm. How can you think they excuse the bikini armours? That doesn't even make sense.
#25 - newprinny (02/28/2016) [-]
Yes, the only major differences are that the guy wore pants and the female's robot bits are slightly slimmer, dood. The female armor covers a little less of her stomach, and unless there's something being covered by the gun, the male's "codpiece" is just the crotch of the guy's pants. Visually it's a huge difference, but only because you're paying more attention to the female variant, if the guy wore a pair of shorts, they would be nearly piece for piece identical sets of armor that only vary by the size and frame of the character wearing them. I don't play firefall, and this is the closest image I could find to that piece of armor that you posted, so it's what I'm going off of.

In that picture the female armor actually looks like it would be more effective due to its design. Whatever is on the males armor isn't practical, though the curved female armor actually looks like a practical design. So out of those two, though it covers a little less, the female armor would actually be effective.

m8 oh m8.
Is there even a point to this discussion if you're going to pull out masterpieces like that?
#29 - newprinny (02/28/2016) [-]
Apparently not since apparently wearing shorts makes a set of armor completely different and sexualized, dood.
#30 - comicironic (02/28/2016) [-]
Look at the comparison pic YOU posted.
The only shared skin between the male and female armour is the head and arms.
What is the female exposing more of?:
- Belly (sexual)
- Thighs (sexual)
- Cleavage (you better believe that's sexual)
Not only are these massive skin areas, they do make the armour less covering and more sexual.
You cannot now argue that you haven't seen an example of armour which is more revealing for the female version.
User avatar
#31 - newprinny (02/28/2016) [-]
And I didn't argue that, nor did I ever argue that, dood. I argued that for all the games I've played, there either weren't that many differences between male and female armor, or that if there were "sexy" armors for females, there were also several "sexy" armor for males.
#32 - comicironic (02/28/2016) [-]
From >>#4
"For all the complaining I see about female armor, I have never actually seen a game where this is true, dood."
You claimed you had never seen an example of a female armour which was far more revealing than the same armour for men, in a game where the reverse wasn't also true.
I'd dispute the case for Tera, since I haven't seen any armours more revealing for men than women, but Firefall is now an example of a game where there is armour that is more revealing for women than men in a sexual way.
#33 - newprinny (02/28/2016) [-]
Yeah, and then I expanded on my initial statement by saying that I have seen games with sexy female armor, but there have been sexy male armor to counter them, dood. In context with the original post, and the usual complaints of people that complain about it, I was saying that I've never played a game where most if not all female armor was sexy armor compared to men's regular armor.
#34 - comicironic (02/28/2016) [-]
I also linked examples of female armour being much more sexy that male armour in TERA.
What was your response?
"Well there are cases where they're equally sexy, so that doesn't count."
User avatar
#35 - newprinny (02/28/2016) [-]
Yes, because in the context of the "men get real armor, and women only get smutty chain bikinis" complaint, several examples of male armor being just as sexy as female armor shows that the creators of the game are just as willing to sexualize men as they are women, dood. I also never said TERA "doesn't count," I said that TERA was the worst example of this that I could think of, but it has several sexy male armors to compare to sexy female armor.
#36 - comicironic (02/28/2016) [-]
>several examples of male armor being just as sexy as female armor shows that the creators of the game are just as willing to sexualize men as they are women, dood

But it doesn't devalue those cases where the women were MORE sexualised.
As I said, the equal sexualisation is meant to be the default. No matter how sexy the armour is, the natural situation is that both sexes wear it as sexily.
There are many cases in TERA where the female armour is blatantly more sexual. No matter how many other examples you bring up of armours being equally revealing, that doesn't change.
What might change it is you finding male armours which are significantly more revealing than female ones, but I haven't seen any of those.
#39 - newprinny (02/28/2016) [-]
And I'm saying that since there are several examples of sexualized costumes for both genders, it doesn't fall in line with the usual complaint that most if not all of female armor is sexy while most if not all of men's armor is space marine football player armor, dood. It doesn't matter that there's more female than male when you sit down and count each and every one of them, the presence of both means that they're not only sexualizing women and they've not afraid of "disempowering" males or whatever by making them sexy as people like to argue. I even went out of my way to explicitly say three times now that TERA is the worst example I can think of. That means that it's the closest I can think of that I've played that would prove their point, but since both sexes are put in skimpy clothing they call armor, it's not as effective.
#42 - comicironic (02/28/2016) [-]
But you're only considering the outliers.
There are also plenty of armours that only sexualise the female characters, and leave the male characters looking pretty standard and well-protected.

", but since both sexes are put in skimpy clothing they call armor, "
Granted, they made revealing outfits for both sexes, but that's not the point being discussed, because the issue is that female outfits are MORE revealing.
That some of the outfits are revealing for both doesn't detract from that point, because it doesn't refute the inequality: it just provides an example where they're equal.

>It doesn't matter that there's more female than male when you sit down and count each and every one of them
>the statistical inequality doesn't matter
Then what fucking does matter?
What, out of all of this, would have mattered to you?
What possible example could I have found to refute your position, if the very idea that female armour is generally more revealing that male armour, to the extent that many armours are basically metal bikinis, doesn't refute it?
Why, in a comparison of inequality, does INEQUALITY not factor in to your judgement?

#43 - newprinny (02/28/2016) [-]
Because the armors are not overwhelmingly sexualized in favor of female armor, dood. The usual complaints from comics like the original post and others like it is that most if not all female armor is the skimpy clothing, while most if not all male armor is practical armor bordering on covering too much to give a sense of more power, with similar item sets being extremely different depending on the sex to the point that it's the difference of space marine armor and a metal bikini. I then said that TERA is the most pronounced and closest example I could think of that I'd played, but since there were many examples of male and female armor that were equally sexualized, it doesn't make the point of male armor always being made to be powerful and female armor always being made to be sexy as well. It doesn't matter if there's more one way or the other since both sides are represented fairly well. It would matter if out of all the male armors, there were only a handful of armor that was anything less than head to toe covered in plate, and for females, there were only a handful of armor that had anything more than a couple leather straps, but even in TERA that's not true, dood.

The New 3DS has an extra rubbery stump that they call the c-stick and it apparently can manipulate the camera in Monster Hunter or perform smash attacks in Smash Bros. Other than that it features a slightly more powerful processor and enhanced "super stable 3D" which uses the inward facing camera to track your face and make sure that the 3D effect is facing you at most angles. I don't know if there are really going to be N3DS specific games because Nintendo still refers to it as the "3DS family"
