PrincessSugoi commented on Talking Point: A History of the Sexualisation ...:

@JellySplat That's incorrect. Men do have breasts, can get breast cancer, and in some cases, their breasts can be naturally enlarged (I've seen one case like this with a guy at my high school who had to be about a B cup). Women's breasts weren't meant to be "explicit" or "sexual", they're meant to carry milk. In some cultures, women walk around shirtless all the time and no one blinks an eye. This is part of what is driving a lot of the current debates about restaurants banning breastfeeding and women being able to walk around without bras or shirts.



PrincessSugoi commented on Talking Point: A History of the Sexualisation ...:

I see no 'skimpy' outfit here, that's a sports bra + shorts combo that any woman would tell you is far more comfortable to do physical activity in than a bulky space suit or tight catsuit. I don't see any 'heavy' makeup either. I see light, everyday makeup that many women wear to work, school, professional settings, etc.

The most problematic thing I see here are the heels but hey, they look cool and fashionable and many performers/dancers can do a lot of moving in them.

But I have a neat idea: how about instead of treating anything showing off the female form as something meant to be seen as sexual for men, making girls feel like they should be ashamed of their beauty and inadvertently supporting rape culture, we focus more on teaching our children that showing off skin and/or being attractive is not an open invitation and neither does it make you a slut. Samus is a beast. Space heels, make up, and boobies shouldn't take away from that.



PrincessSugoi commented on 72 Million Kids Are Dying To Get Their Grubby ...:

Nintendo is pretty much the gaming equivalent of Disney, I'm not surprised there is such a demand for more toys. These may or may not sell a ton of Wii U's but all Ninty needs is for them to sell a ton by themselves and they will.



PrincessSugoi commented on Sega Is Bringing Hatsune Miku: Project MIRAI R...:


YES YES YES YES. I'm a big Hatsune Miku/Vocaloid fan (was just listening to Freely Tomorrow actually) and this has been my biggest localization wish since Project Diva f made it over here, I CAN DIE HAPPY (but not before I play this game ofc).



PrincessSugoi commented on Nintendo Download: 26th June (North America):

Torn between Shovel Knight or getting Code of Princess while it's $15. I'm kind of in the middle of four platformers already so getting Shovel Knight right now might be overkill even if I mostly want it for the killer soundtrack.



PrincessSugoi commented on Cooking Mama 5: Bon Appétit Cooking Up a Trea...:

Haters to the left. 13 million says Mama is here to stay! ;)

This sounds like the entry with the most replay value yet. Hope there's lots of custom kitchen options. The Burger Shop and Word game seem like the modes I'll be spending the most time with.



PrincessSugoi commented on First Impressions: Taking Sonic Boom for a Spi...:

Whenever they say traditional style gameplay I get excited... then I remember that SEGA seems to have no bleeping idea how to even do that properly anymore.

I've only played the demo of Lost World but for what it was, I enjoyed it. I hope the next "main" Sonic game expands on that style



PrincessSugoi commented on This Rather Neat "Mario White Edition" 3DS XL ...:

So wait... is this region free?

I have quite a few Japan games I've been really wanting to play that likely won't make it over here. Too bad I don't have that cash, I'd certainly snap it up for that reason alone. And I think the restaurant design is cute!



PrincessSugoi commented on Comic Workshop Coming to 3DS eShop on 17th Jul...:

I've been wanting a way to make short comics that typically pop into my head at times without needing a scanner and photo editing program. Checked out their site and it does allow you to upload to PC. I prefer Manga style too so this seems like a perfect fit. Will definitely keep some money aside in my account to pick this up.

Colors!3D isn't a bad program but it's sadly been wasted on me, the type of pieces I would want to make with that software are simply better suited to pen and paper instead of the limiting 3DS screen.



PrincessSugoi commented on New Japanese Law Bans Child Abuse Images, Yet ...:


"However, I do believe that stuff like this should be stopped. How about the Anime industry starts something like the Comics Code Authority, and I guess the Cero rating systems should also be a little more strict..."

The Comic Code Authority? You mean the very thing that stifled the comic industry's ability to reach the masses early on and turned it into in a homogeneous niche hobby with "white male geek living in mom's basement" stigma? The lingering consequences of it's effects one of the main reasons why current American comics will never see the sales records One Piece and Naruto occur on a weekly basis? The one all major publishers eventually abandoned? You think Anime/Manga should have the equivalent of THAT? (I agree with much everything else you've said though.)

@AugustusOxy Summed up my feelings exactly.



PrincessSugoi commented on Capcom Could Be Up For Sale After Shareholders...:

Was it reported that Nintendo didn't buy Atlus because they couldn't afford it or is that just an assumption? Because I find it far more likely that they just weren't interested.

From what I was able to find, Capcom is apparently only worth 1.24B. I don't know the process of these things but that's sounds pretty affordable for Ninty. They could really use the extra development studios and they need Monster Hunter, Phoenix Wright, Megaman, and to a lesser extent, Resident Evil to remain on their consoles. Unlike Atlus, I see this being an opportunity Nintendo might seriously consider.



PrincessSugoi commented on Everyone Was Talking About Nintendo At E3 2014:

Not surprised at all. Nintendo and Ubisoft were the most common E3 related topics circulating on my Tumblr dash, I barely saw anything related to Sony or Microsoft unless it had to do with the other two. A good number of those posts were about popular tweets too.

The response to Splatoon is what really floored me. Within two days of it's announcement, it's tag was already filled with TONS of fanart, new fanblogs, and posts from people hyped and excited for the game. Some have even made T-shirts and plushies! Nintendo has a real potential smash with this one and hopefully they're getting all their ducks in a row for a big merchandising push.



PrincessSugoi commented on Mario Maker to Include Additional Graphical St...:

Couldn't believe how entranced I was with this title the whole time it was being shown on Treehouse. I'd say it's my second favorite coming from E3, it'd make the most fantastic drinking/party game! :D

I'm liking the sound of "graphics that aren't Mario". Please get SEGA in on this so I can finally have a playable "new" 2D Sonic game!



PrincessSugoi commented on Talking Point: Nintendo's Innovative E3 Approa...:

With this E3 Nintendo showed while they can be stubbornly traditionally and old school with certain things, they're remarkably progressive in others. E3 has gotten dull since they closed it from the public and the conference format along with it. The Digital Event + Treehouse format is very digestible for me, got the big reveals with the finesse then was able to just pop into the stream throughout the day to get all the footage/additional info then post my reactions on Tumblr (or NL). I think it's a perfect combination for the social media era. I wouldn't be surprised if Sony and Microsoft eventually followed through with similar formats.



PrincessSugoi commented on Massive Pokémon Reveals Occur During Super Sm...:

YASSS I love Gen 6 but if there's only going to be one representative I can't think of a better choice than Greninja. Was my starter and ended up one of my top faves for not only this gen but overall. So happy I get to team up with this adorkable bamf in this game too.



PrincessSugoi commented on Super Smash Bros. Hitting 3DS This Summer, Wii...:

This works just fine for me actually. Only thing that sucks is I will probably have to skip on Triple Deluxe though, can only afford one major release for the time being. Unless it comes out in August, then I can probably get someone to gift it to me for my bday.



PrincessSugoi commented on Yo-kai Watch Maintains Strong Run in Japan as ...:

Seeing how quickly the PS4 seems to be dropping off and the Wii U's situation for the past year, I wonder if Microsoft should even bother releasing the XBO over there.

Good for the Vita hanging in there and Yokai Watch. Hope Level 5 sees these sales and give us a localization announcement already.



PrincessSugoi commented on XSEED May Bring Physical Copies of Future Senr...:

@ferthepoet Exactly. I have no idea where people get the thought that NOT supporting a digital only release somehow tells a developer there's enough interest in the series for them to risk more money on a retail release. Especially since the reason digital only releases usually happen is because they don't think the demand is there. The logic is baffling.

Already did my part in supporting this release so don't need a physical copy of Burst. Just bring Shinovi Vs. and Deep Crimson over here with some of those awesome goodies oh and the strip cooking game too because I kind of need that.



PrincessSugoi commented on Big Red Button Explains Its Sonic Boom Charact...:

The only design I have issue with is Knuckles. I understand why they designed him that way since he was always the tough guy but it seems a bit much for me. I liked that he was a tough guy in a small package (or rather a package that wasn't much bigger than others). I never thought he was intelligent but this design makes him look even more like a meathead.

I also don't like Amy's dress particularly the reddish color that clashes with all the different shades of purple/pink. But I've never been a fan of Modern Amy's styling in general, I much prefer her classic look. Had much more character.

Tails is probably the best design out of the bunch and Sonic doesn't look all that different from usual though he could of used more stylish kicks.



PrincessSugoi commented on Soapbox: Ignoring The Objectification Of Women...:

Reading some of the comments in defense of Senran's characters, I was just reminded of the first visual novel segment for Asuka.

A boy confesses to her out of the blue. She doesn't know what to make of it since they just met. She starts to develop feelings for him as they see each other more and she learns more of how he is as a person. She still is conflicted though because she thinks love would be too complicated being a Shinobi. Her grandfather Hanzo then tells her of how her parents met and her father gave up his dream so he could work in Hanzo's sushi restaurant and support the love of his life's career as a Shinobi. Seeing that her crush has a promising career as a baseball star, Asuka then makes the decision to reject the guy's feelings so they could both pursue their dreams without a relationship possibly interfering.

Just a little insight for those that think just because Asuka has balloons for breasts that makes her any less stronger of a character than Lara Flatchest up there.

@Ernest_The_Crab Yes, it's very ironic indeed.



PrincessSugoi commented on Soapbox: Ignoring The Objectification Of Women...:


"There ARE things that objectify males in the same way this does to females, but in Western culture? Not so much."

Agreed. The problem here though is that this debate is over a Japanese game, a place where such a market actually does exist. If the point was specifically about Western gaming culture, a Western game would have been appropriate instead of a niche localization that wasn't going to appeal much more to anyone but weaboos.

Agreed on the rest of your comment as well but at the same time, it tickles me seeing the constant debates on how women are drawn in comic books to titillate male readers meanwhile, me and other female comic book fans are drooling over how hot Scott Summers looks in spandex. :P
