I thought the same thing about them changing the level completely. And I don't think they're going to drag it out. The article makes it seem like just for the level you'll be learning their back-story so you know what the deal is when you have to face them. My analogy to the Assassin's Creed series was more about a reasoning for it being done and how a back-story allows people to be less offended since there are reasons. The people who were offended by the teaser trailer were offended out of ignorance of the situation. I guarantee that nobody who has played any of the Hitman games were offended, only those who don't know the Hitman world.

We (gamers) saw the trailer, and immediately knew that because it was Agent 47 involved, whoever he killed deserved it. Not everyone out there does. They just see this guy going on a rampage against nuns with guns and out of ignorance and confusion were offended. Though, like I said, those same people aren't going to bother playing this game and as such, adding a back-story isn't necessary for the game.

Agent 47's bald head is offensive and degrading to men. Dev's you need to bend over and give him some hair!

But then that would be discriminating bald men.

There is literally no way to make everyone happy about anything. And like Vonnis most of the people who complain about what happens if video games weren't going to buy the game anyway. Like GTA IV, at first you could drive a car drunk and Niko wouldn't say anything. Some people complained and said it will encourage their children to drink and drive when they are older (which IMO is the least thing they should worry about in that game, especially when you could blow up police helicopters with rocket launchers and kill millions of inocent people by shooting them in the face with a shotgun) so R* were forced to add in a line that Niko says before he gets in the car when he is drunk.

Because in that case, the female is maiming and killing males. Neurotic feminists applaud this.

In this case, the females are getting maimed and killed by the male (regardless of its justification or context). Neurotic feminists are disturbed by this, and demand that everyone else be as well.

That's alright because the pope is a guy.

The feminists are more angered about why those assasins were even dressed like that in the first place, they were angry because the entire point of that trailer was "ooooh we're disguised as nuns and now we'll strip off to show some sexy latex/leather" was purely to grab the attention of males, i.e. "the gaze".

What they're utterly failing to understand is that the trailer and pretty much ALL games which have females over-sexualized, or portrayed as the ones needing rescue, or fighting in lingere, etc fall in exactly the same category as movies Transformers or Machete - they are aimed at BOYS/MEN from ground-up. Why? Because they make up the overwhelming majority of gamers. Also why? Because game developers are something like 80-90% male.

Honestly, I have no idea where these hoards of feminists were when Megan Fox was introduced wearing ass-revealing clothing in a sexy position in a movie about robots at war. It's painfully obvious why she was placed there, and yet feminists are raging about their portrayal in VIDEO GAMES instead. Talk about multiple standards.

If it results in seeing more of the latex clad nuns, im all for it. thumb.gif
