    hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha

    I really hope that *insert game name here* will be the first game to ever live up to all of its pre-release promises, maintain a manageable hype level and have a clean release. Just don't expect me to hold my breath.

    Hilarious. Just hilarious. And oh so true. Haters gonna hate, whether or not you give them the option to hump their same-sex companions.

    Great column once again.

    The zealously "entitled" are bugging me very much too in our neck of the interwebs woods.

    For serious. Totally super serial.

    Good read.

    Also Bane, you're not gonna play because they're patching in same sex content? Kinda ironic from a bloke posting from Camp Hill, you have to admit.

     

    Most people from Camp Hill, hell the general Harrisburg area are pretty conservative by and large. It's always been pretty old fashioned. I didn't say I wasn't going to play. I am going to play, only because I made a promise to my guildmates, but, that whole same sex content issue just took all the wind out of my sails for the game. I just don't enjoy that sort of stuff and steer away from it because of that.

     Oddly enough those are reasons the friends that are sporting mass boners for this game will hate it on launch as it broke their dreams and stomped on their hearts. On top of a dozen other reasons.

    It is best for the industry the MMO throne remains an dusty empty seat never to be filled.

    Great article I love the humor of it but it's unfortunately all too true for the most part.

    Maybe you should go back and read about the lore before making a foul of yourself!

     

    Bioware said that the game was to reflect the movies. There are no gays in any of the movies. I know people like to stretch and say Juhani was gay, because of same dialogue that was uniform regardless of the sex of your character but that is all debatable in my opinion. Secondarily, yes I know about the two Mandolorian characters, but that's really it, and that's a very very small portion of the Star Wars universe. It's nowhere near as prevalent as Bioware or the loud minority is making it out to be. 


     

     And if you want to play your characters as straight, do so. This doesn't affect you AT ALL. Any NPC romancing will be done in private cut scenes for the player ONLY. But in a typical anti-gay argument...you don't like it so no one else can do it, even in private.

    I think that people should be allowed to do whatever they want in private, absolutely anything at all, so long as what they are doing isn't hurtful to someone else or illegal of course. While yes what they are doing is private, I find it offensive that I have to look at a "flirt" button next to a portrait/character of a MAN. I know exactly what it implies and I don't need or want to see it. At that point, it's not a private issue. It's rather clear cut and to the point just what exactly it's suggesting.

    You're never going to see any of the same-sex-relationship stuff, unless you play your own character that way, so what's the big deal?

    Everytime I see a flirt option next to the portrait of a man, I know exactly what that suggests and I find it offensive.

    Im waiting for something like this article to be made about TOR.

    Points to the largest issue with gamers in general.  A loud majority seem to think every game, no matter what, should fit their playsyle, hence: "I love action and FPS games...so all games should be action or FPS!  And if not...I'll complain incessantly and give them horrendous reviews!"

    I love turn and strategy based RPG's...does that mean I should post my bias opions about games like Modern Warfare or Halo and say they suck, then give them horrendous reviews?  No...I just don't play them and generally ignore them...because they don't fit my playstyle.

    Same sex marriage. blah. who cares. I can't wait for my bounty hunter to get it on with a jawa! Only problem is, just how the hell do you determine the sex of a jawa... image

    A man is his own easiest dupe, for what he wishes to be true he generally believes to be true...

    Heh maybe you guys can start your own petition to get BW to ave an option to turn off same sex options, and then maybe we can have them add an ignore tab just so we can ignore anyone who had the option still on.......

    Me, I just don't want to see/hear it. I'm well aware gays will be in the game but as long as I see no evil/hear no evil I'm fine.
