    Yeah, but at least the rest of the game wouldn't suck (at least not in the metaphorical sense).

    Or you are a virgin that only gets laid in video games or when some drunk passes out in front of you.

    Hey man liking pretty chicks in games is fine just don't expect them all to look like that. Also stop supporting devs that do that if you wanna be some online activist retard.

    Outer Worlds having a bunch of ugly women is not even the problem, it's just how mediocre as shit the game is.

    There is nothing wrong with liking beautiful people, just like there's nothing wrong with liking ugly people (although game characters are not really people). But there is something wrong with getting outraged when a game doesn't have beautiful people, the same as getting outraged when a game doesn't have ugly people.

    People who get outraged at games for stupid and shallow shit like how characters look in games should grow up.

    "Boohoohoo, this game only has sexualized, objectifying and unrealistically beautiful characters" or "Boohoohoo, this game only has ugly as fuck characters" is exactly the same for me. Just a bunch of snowflake man-babies and snowflake woman-babies complaining about something that no one really cares about except them.

    It's a game, you buy it and play it only if you want to, it's not like someone is at home and suddenly is forced to buy and play a game that they don't like how the characters look in it. And then they feel like going around the internet shouting about how (patriarchy or queer or whatever) agenda-pushing it is, just like the town crazies that people just try to ignore until they get fed up with it.

    I didn't buy that game and I didn't play it either. Because I didn't like what I saw of it back in the day. Yet I'm not going around shouting about how bad this game is. This insignificant game that was released years ago and pretty much no one cares about these days (unless it is to cry about it, it seems).

    The internet is just a bunch of cry-babies these days, crying about how stupid things (that don't really matter) are not how they want (and yes, I know this is NMA), and it's really tiring for everyone else.

    Not to mention that this discussion really has nothing to do with the topic of this thread, and that is what annoys me, so maybe I should start crying and shouting about this, since that's what people like to do here. :lmao:

    The problem we have with Outer World females is that they reek of black racial agenda. Aka they all look black or mixed blacks.

    Speaking as an Asian guy, I'd like to play as asian, or at least as whatever race I like to play. I dont like getting forced to receive this black mix.

    Outer World share too much of this racial agenda to Andromeda it's no wonder both games tank like a motherfucker.

    What the fuck happen to US game devs by the way? Two decades ago they try to keep this racial balance thing going, but now all scream black lives matter more~

    "Or you are a virgin that only gets laid in video games"
    No, I don't care for romancing in video games at all. I avoid it if I can because its a waste of time unless its something that influences the outcome of the game.

    "or when some drunk passes out in front of you."
    I'm not into rape, but maybe that's your thing.

    "Hey man liking pretty chicks in games is fine just don't expect them all to look like that."
    Of course not everyone should be a Ms. Universe beauty queen.. but we are still talking about this, right?

    Some those "lines" are so blurred they don't even look female anymore. They look like some underdeveloped boy shit. But you're right. Not all of them should look good, except maybe just 1. So that 400kg fat lesbian/asexual/tranny/queer pigs that play the game don't get offended. Or god forbid they go look in the mirror and then kill themselves.


    "Also stop supporting devs that do that if you wanna be some online activist retard."

    I don't support them. And I don't have time for doing online retard activism because unlike you I don't live in a 1st world country where things like this are worth wasting energy on.

    There's your NMA activity for the next 5 years fellas, soak it in and enjoy it while you can.

    I'll be over here continuing to dig this empty grave that has a headstone which reads "1997 - " on it.

    What? Someone's gotta do it.

    P.S.
    You've made the understandable mistake of thinking anyone here has families to spend Christmas with.

    Or lives, for that matter.

    We're spending our holiday free time collectively bitching about a show that hasn't even released yet. C'mon now.

    On the bright side, at least Kirk came out of that documentary mostly unscathed.

    Everyone who thinks the middle character is ugly has been fucked in the brain from watching too much porn.

    Ugly? I guess in comparison to the majestic figure that is Robert Z'dar, sure.

    She's not ugly.
    She's just 'uglier' than what she was in the previous game.
    It's like if you have a blue mug, then you got a purple mug.
    It isn't a red mug but sure as shit ain't blue anymore.
