I'm going a bit general here, so as to include this and newer games. I suppose this won't be a popular opinion in some places because some people seem to love to have this blatant sexualization everywhere so long as the characters objectified are not publicly minors (and some may be closet creeps who wouldn't mind the lower ages as well, nobody knows). But I feel this game went way overboard with this stuff. Been trying to say this since awhile but I couldn't find the words. But now here I am.
Anyway. I cannot name the outfits because I don't have their names, but most know which they are. We also all know about the emotes that get paired with these outfits in lobbies to make the game look disgusting for me and perhaps others. More than reaso why I never stay in a lobby for long. And we also know the female poses for the new Vegas vehicle and Ranger's Rocket Rodeo (which now becomes so blatant thanks to the created PA edit). The outfits alone, while extremely risque, are not the main culprit here (and some swimsuits are ok). The biggest problem to me are the emotes and the poses. Those are the the ones not seen in other games and that turn things into tasteless porny shows when you see several people using them in the lobbies. But both outfits and emotes should be thought out to better reflect the game's setting and lore for any new games.
Yes, I'll get the "It's a Japan game". I'll get the "If you don't like it, leave". But to all of those I say, I'm making this thread to express my opinion for this and for any ideas for future games, to keep what I'm perceiving as already some form of soft core porn to keep rearing it's head in games it's not needed nor called for. We can have plenty of games for adults where those things fit properly without dwindling the quality nor the aesthetic of those games. But here, in a game about space mages with "magic", dragons and fantasy, it's just disgusting to watch and unnecessary to behold. And these things make the lobbies look like seedy bars and adult night clubs.
This doesn't apply to Sega alone, as other companies have made similar things. But at least from my experience, this game has gone well beyond most I've seen out there in this regard. Now, knowing these things will stay in this game, and assuming a group of people (I'll laugh if some of the same ones going against the elimination of the height restriction because it "sexualizes children" come to attack this) will come and either berate me or laugh at me for this. To those, I can only let it known that I do not agree to these additions in these games, and a plea to devs to not create those things for newer projects down the line. I want porn to stay at the hub, not to come to the lobby.
