REBLOGGING THIS BECAUSE I GET THIS WRONG EVERY TIME

These are all real excuses that have been uttered over the years.

Recently GameCentral published an article which contained an interview with Alexandre Armancio, the creative director of Assassin’s Creed Unity. In it he responded to a queries from GameCentral concerning the lack of playable female characters. Here’s what he had to say, 

GC: “That sounds very promising, but I suppose I should just ask about having female co-op characters. Is that something you’re going to back down on and implement?

AA: No, no. I’ll give you the answer to that. The thing is, there is only one playable character, those four players are all just copies of Arno…

GC: I know, I know. I do think you’ve been unfairly picked on a bit.

AA: Exactly. We went with one protagonist and he happens to be a male protagonist in 18th century France. 

GC: Don’t get me wrong, I think you should have female avatars but I can think of dozens of other games that have far worse excuses for not featuring prominent female characters.

AA: It is an important issue. But when you’re playing co-op everyone’s playing Arno from their perspective. We’re just replacing their faces with generic faces, everyone only ever plays as Arno.

GC: So you’re not going to add in female faces as a response to the controversy?

AA: No, because that would be very reactive. What we do have is a lot of strong female characters in the game.

GC: I know a lot of people thought that the female character you unveiled was a reaction to the issue.

AA: Elise? Elise has been there since… she’s existed at least as long as Arno has existed. The book, the Assassin’s Creed book that will be released, it’s from Elsie’s point of view. The trailer you saw, the second trailer with her, that was actually the first one we did. The only reason we played the other one first is because we wanted to show co-op.” 

I suppose we can add “retroactive” to this damn Bingo card, huh? Ubisoft, keep on shooting yourself in the feet. Morons…Women stuck in supporting roles (damsels probably), once again. Having strong female characters makes it even worse that none are playable! Especially if they’re done correctly, am I right?! Adult women have overtaken teenage boys as the largest gaming demographic. Yet, you’d sadly think it was the opposite, blargh.

Does that piss you off? Good! Don’t Buy The New Game Then (hit ‘em where it hurts, where it matters most). 

In fact, let’s take it one step further. Please REBLOG this if you agree that Ubisoft exhibiting gender discrimination isn’t cool. Feel free to add to it and keep it going. 

Let the company know that the majority has an angry and loud voice! Perhaps instead of striving to be so masculine, what if the game actually appealed to the target demographic? Shouldn’t more mainstream games give gamers such an option?

Well, shouldn’t it?! Instead of being an afterthought. Or never a thought at all.

here’s a tip: if you start dating a depressed person, don’t be surprised if they are still depressed while they are dating you.
they’re not depressed because they’re single, and you are not an all-powerful cure for mental illnesses. just be there for them.

REAL

FUCKING

TALK

As someone that suffers from depression (and is asexual), this is very true. Sometimes, taking my medication and doing something I find fun/always makes me smile doesn’t even work, in the slightest. This is what depression does. It like is being forced daily to become a mere shadow of your trueself: consumed by something I’m still not able to control with help already. That’s how powerful it is! The best way you can do is to be there for them. Those that are depressed don’t like being anti-social or alone (even if he/she denies it), doing this only feeds the inner monster that is depression. Pushing everyone away is one of the worst possible decisions a depressed individual can ever make. We need the support. Also, the fact that you can’t be a cure aggravates and saddens us. You think we like feeling like garbage when we’re spending time with you? HECK NO! That’s the last thing we yearn to feel…Remember, it isn’t anything personal (don’t take it that way). it is just mental.

  • it’s okay for you to like skinny girls
  • it’s okay for you to like skinny girls with big boobs and a butt
  • it’s okay for you to like curvy girls
  • it’s okay for you to like heavier girls
  • it’s totally okay to like thighs or thigh gaps and big boobs or small boobs and big butts or little butts
  • what’s not okay is telling a woman that she isn’t beautiful or sexy because she doesn’t meet your personal body type preferences

 Everyone needs to reblog this.

REBLOGGED! Yes!
