The lights are on
Ever notice how the armor that female characters get in video games isn't exactly the most protective? What's the deal with that?
The CollegeHumor video below doesn't directly deal with video games, but it's a situation that I think anyone who's ever played as (or looked at) a female character in a game can understand. In it, the great warrior Lyla Windtalker is gifted the "incredibly sturdy Dragon Mail of Protection." Sadly, it doesn't look too protective....
"What's the deal with that?"
is that a rhetorical question?
I wonder how she looks without it.
I think they got the right idea at the end there. I mean, look at Death's armor design for Darksiders II, he even has his entire chest exposed! How protective is that? But it looks cool. Now look at MAD!'s concept art of Fury and notice that she is fully armored and still feminine. It can work if someone is willing to take that chance. Lady skin sells, but the demographic is changing, and there will come a time when the "Full plate string bikini" won't be tolerated. Follow the example, for the sake of the changing face of games.
"Anything more and you begin to sacrifice mobility." Ha ha ha. But actually, depending how realistic your fantasy film/game is trying to be, I prefer my female characters to be realistically protected. (What I find a little more annoying is the trend toward guys in games having their midriffs/navels exposed...I guess what goes around comes around...)
Maybe not to protective but real sexy for sure
it's about attractiveness
Umbra has good armor.
LOL! Awesome Sketch. True, but awesome
sweet vid mostly cause the end imo .. all things aside tho while true i don't really mind that much n i'm a chick. i kinda wish elder scrolls had more form fitting armor
ROFL!!! hella funny!!
HAHAHA that was great
When it comes to armor, women get diddily-squat.
"Oh! Right in the shiny part!" HAHAHA! What a great video and how true this is. At least she has chain mail, poor Isabella in DA2 has what panties and a shirt? Least all the 'important' parts are covered...
Haha so true!
