What are examples of female characters dressed practically for combat? Basically, the opposite of this crap.
>everyone and everything needs to be exactly like real life in these fantasy video games involving necromancy and dragons and magic and lizardmen
And don't give me any of that "Even fantasy needs to be rooted in reality" shit, the point of fantasy is to have UNrealistic things. And stop throwing fits over what fictional non-existent people wear when slinging magic at kobolds.
But that is practical attire for combat. less/lighter clothing/armor means greater ease and range of movement. If i were in a fantasy combat setting then id want to wear light clothing so that i dont fatigue as quickly as those wearing ten times their weight in steel.
is the game going for realism? Then yes, boob armor is bullshit. But the women should also look like they could beat a man.
Is the game pure fantasy? BRING ON THE CHAINMAIL BIKINI AND COMBAT STILETTOS!
>stating the obvious is rationalizing
This game is so beautiful. And if feminists / tumblr actually played it they'd know that.
Just look at the art you unlock when you complete side quests. They're gorgeous, and so are the enemies, backgrounds, etc.
>not dressing like this
you can't liberate France dressed in a metal bra and chain panties
>women with large breasts are not allowed in video games
is this a YLYL thread
>Fighter skipped leg day and theoretically shouldnt be able to stand, let alone fly across the screen
>Dwarf is so ripped he shouldnt be able to touch the top of his own head
>Wizard looks wizzardy but otherwise pretty normal
>Sorceress has big jugs and behind, would probably be constantly putting her tits back in her blouse irl
>Amazon is ripped to an unatural degree and swings around a poll ax like its a fork
>Elf looks elfy but otherwise pretty normal
Gee, almost like its a consistent style for the whole game
lol no they didn't
also I wasn't aiming at this particular game, but all your arguments were shitty "practical" excuses. You didn't say "everything is stylized in this game." Also, we don't talk solely about this game. Every fucking female champion in LoL has emphasis on boobs (apart from those critters and few others)
why don't do witches like this?
Why the fuck would Joan of Arc even wear armor? It's not like she actually participated in the fighting.
Hey Jason Schreirer how've you been?
You look nothing like you used to.
Also the game looks like this cause it was inspired by the D&D Fighter capcom made because the team leader was a dev for that game and wanted to revisit the genre and wanted to keep the style.
her proportions are still much more toned down then the rest of the cast and most NPC's, like the Wizard
>She was wounded by an arrow between the neck and shoulder while holding her banner in the trench outside Les Tourelles
>During the same siege (Jargeau) she withstood a blow from a stone which hit her helmet while she was near the base of the town's wall.
>Despite a wound to the leg from a crossbow bolt, Joan remained in Paris' inner trench until she was carried back to safety by one of the commanders
Heh, that dude actually apologized for his article on TBs podcast. He admitted the thing was nothing more than a snark piece meant to fill his writing quota before heading off to the weekend. Sure, that can be backpedaling but still.
I actually just started watching that episode right now.
I'm glad he apologized though.
I find that pretty believable because
>someone show me something that doesn't make me angry, grrr! I hate stylization and unrealism in fantasy so much!
That's not a challenge, that's bait. And it's being rightfully roasted.
Yeah no, they wore whatever rags and metals they could get their hands on.
Exactly. I don't want to hear women, I don't want to see women, I think women should be excluded from school. The only time a woman should exist is when I want to stick my dick in something. Feminists are totally right about all of this.
>tfw every EA game I've ever actually enjoyed is now dead.
Why is practicality important?
I mean, you're not talking about a realistic combat simulator here. You're talking about a high-fantasy beat 'em up with AERIAL COMBOS.
Practicality isn't important for games like that. You should focus on making designs interesting and unique and recognizable, not 'practical'. If you start designing all characters as practical then they all end up looking the same.
Dragon's Crown is a stylized game with an out-there combat system. Its style necessitates equally stylized and out-there designs. The only time you should shoot for practicality is if you want realism. I don't give a shit if Shinobi's long red scarf is impractical, it looks fucking cool.
>iron clad germans
>germans literally couldn't afford iron, wore almost no armor and carried no swords
>meanwhile swords were common among the Celts, both the spatha and gladius are based off Celtic swords the Romans encountered
>celts invented chainmail
>celts were literally the first ironworkers in Europe
>celts sacked rome a thousand years before the Germans, against Rome when it wasn't a crumbling mess weakened by the Huns
yeah nah cunt
What's that OP, slutty fantasy female armor?
That's what I thought you said.
>Idiot spouts "SJW" logic as b8
>Other idiots take bait
>"Shitposting is a flat circle"
Here we go again!
god damnit I refuse to argue with a guy who gets his knowledge from stereotypes from now on
Celt's painted themselves orange later on but the OG's painted themselves blue.
but that's not a stereotype, it's the truth. Before the collapse of Rome, Germany was a total shithole and the Germans were poor as fuck, the only ones with armor and swords were mercenaries getting paid by Rome.
Your opinion is not practical
'm not the other guy
But I'm being serious here Germans didn't have much for quite some time.
I agree, slutty high female battle garb is best.
Fuck practicality for combat, a real warrior can be naked and still cleave their foes into hamburger without getting hurt themselves. And I like looking at their bodies, not at slabs of metal.
There are plenty of games that benefit from an increase in realism, think of titles like TES, wouldn't you like more realistic mechanics in order to increase your immersion?
>fantasy/medieval/whatever it's old as shit setting
>everyone has armor
>most people don't wear helmets though
>the only helmets available are open ones
>not a single fucking closed helmet
"Oh but it's so y-you can identify the characters"
WHY CAN'T I FUCKING IDENTIFY THEM BY A COOL LOOKING GODDAMN VAGINA SNIFFING CLOSED HELMET JESUS BUGFUCK
>literally repeating the same animation cycle 5 times
real men fight in the nude ancient rome knew this shit
TES designs aren't 'impractical' to begin with. No one is complaining about the female designs in Elder Scrolls.
We're talking about Dragon's Crown, a 2D high fantasy beat 'em up. It would, in no way, benefit from realism.
>wouldn't you like more realistic mechanics in order to increase your immersion?
No? Unrealistic doesn't mean 'non-immersive'. The main thing breaking immersion in a game like TES is glitches and poor quest pacing.
Helmets like these are my jam, but they are non-exsistant in many vidya.
Now for a Muramasa tier list
Rajyaki > Gonbe > Momohime/Kisuke > Okoi > Arashimaru
So if a woman's armor is unrealistic then "It's fantasy, it isn't supposed to be realistic!" But if women and men have the same strength in game, then "Women are weaker than men, this isn't realistic at all!"
>bitching at bait = not being a retard
Not as cute as you /v/iRgins trying so hard to give the impression you're not a bunch of impressible retards. Have fun being your own cancer :^)
They admired and celebrated the human body, unlike nowadays where we fear and hate it. Talk about going backwards.
>Thinking anyone but b8ers says this
Nigga you've been on /v/ too long.
People don't care about that shit.
>>285361690 here. When did I ever imply anything like that?
Fun fact: The character with the highest strength/vitality in Bravely Default is Edea Lee, a woman. No one complained.
You fucking baby.
They explain at the start of the game that it's magic armor. Everyone else except the zombie is dressed relatively normal.
This moeblob is pretty battle ready.
>wouldn't you like more realistic mechanics
>in a game that lets you shoot fireballs at dragons
Raijin isn't playable you fool.
Nudity is primitive. You can't go 'backwards' against it, only forwards.
Admiring and celebrating the human body? Okay, cool. What does that accomplish other than achieving vanity and wasting time when you could be doing important things?
No. In realistic games I want realism. In ArmA if some nigger eats thirty bullets to the forehead then turns around and throws a fireball at me, I'm gonna have a rage induced stroke.
If I can't break the game with potions on the other hand, what the fuck is the point of TES?
>ut if women and men have the same strength in game, then "Women are weaker than men, this isn't realistic at all!"
Nice fallacy. No one seriously believes that. If they do, they're idiots, like you.
Never said anything like that. I said that if the game is going for realism and there are women on the battlefield in armor they are supposed to look like they could beat a man in armed combat. But if there are spells and dwarfs and elves nothing should be off limits.
Videogame designers will create realistic female combat armor once females actually participate in real combat. What exactly are they supposed to take inspiration from? And why should they anyways?
Not only dresses, but I share your armored ladies fetish
>tfw I wanna play this game
>hear the framerate is all over the place
Oh well, I guess.
I came in expecting scantly clad women. Still, I'll have no complaints if it becomes a Saber thread.
I didn't fully read your post and I thought you were just ranking outfits
More slutty fantasy armor
I wasn't directing Dragon's Crown but " The only time you should shoot for practicality is if you want realism". There are a lot of fantasy games like TES that benefit from realism to increase immersion. And I can come up with a few ideas and tweaks, like adjusting arrow flight speeds to mimic real arrows, having a more dynamic and interactive population so they aren't just walking quest givers, more varied and in-depth combat and better animations. Not separating cities and houses into cells, the list goes on and on...
>magic in game strong enough to render armors completely fucking useless anyway
>WHY AREN'T THEY WEARING HEAVY PIECES OF SHIT THAT PROTECTS JUST AS BAD AS NO ARMOR
I hate this meme thread
So you think we should live in fear and hatred of our own bodies? Constantly act like seeing a body will turn us into demonic rapists and moral-less murderers? Are you that ashamed of yourself, anon?
i honestly kinda wish they would go back to it not because lol dangly bits but the material science and engineering of clothing are giving a unfair advantage to countries with more resources
dragons dogma! Collect all the buckets to upgrade it/unlock i forget. Gets outclassed fairly soon but fuggit, templar helmet. why are the cool simple designs always so shit end-game...
Women in armour gets my dick so hard.
The framerate is fine, the only problem it has is that literally NO ONE plays online.
>So you think we should live in fear and hatred of our own bodies?
Recognizing the worship of the human body as stupid is not fearing it or hating it. It's just recognizing the human body for what it is.
>Constantly act like seeing a body will turn us into demonic rapists and moral-less murderers?
No, just stupid and hedonistic sluts.
>Are you that ashamed of yourself, anon?
There is nothing positive about being shameless.
I got a lot of these from some shitty feminist blog that tries to "fix" slutty fantasy armor. Really poorly too. Like, it looks like they are using MS paint and have cerebral palsy.
Little do they know that they really just provided me with a great repository for slutty armor.
You can still get blown up by grenades when you're in trenches you dumb shit.
This video just made me realize that DA:O is basically A Song Of Ice And Fire - the video game.
>ancient evil has come to consume all life
>power struggle and backstabbing between factions because LOL THEY'RE NO THREAT
>in the end threat becomes real, everyone shits their pants
>only TEH CHOSAN can save everyone
Okay, I get that you're a fucking twat.
But if one thing Dragon Crown does than EVERY OTHER BEAT EM UP, is have fantastic animations.
The Population doesn't matter in a beat em up, you're objective is to beat the ever living shit of your enemies in the most fun and interesting way possible, the combat is fine for a beat em up. I don't understand why thing pushing realism is even important. Are people not allowed to have unrealistic qualities to games? Especially to games inspired by games that are very similar.
I know I've mentioned it before but Capcom's D&D Fighter is the main inspiration for this game, if you think D&D need realism please consider never playing any unrealistic game ever again.
lol look at these cowards call themselves soldiers and sat in faggy trenches like big gayers lol xD
Not realistic =/= not immersive. As long as it fits with the setting and style of the game, it'll be immersive.
Realism only assists in immersion in relation to the overall theme and style of the game. It can't be immersive on its own.
Yeah, I was being sarcastic there. They should be, because in 99% of cases, unless you have some sort of a rare medical condition that is hard to manage, fatness is a result of lacking restraint. Which is a character flaw that can be eliminated.
I know you're trolling (hopefully, because if you really believe what you're saying then that's even worse), but not being afraid and ashamed of what we all have =/= "worshiping" it. Stop being such an idiot.
I own and play it all the time, so I'm pretty sure.
There's nothing wrong with being ashamed of shameful things.
Sorry, but not having a lot of respect or veneration for grown men wrestling in the nude is just common sense. Be a little more civilized.
To be fair, there are plenty of muslim women who much prefer to be covered. The hijab (general term meaning "veil" of which burqa is a subtype--like the difference between a trenchcoat and a jacket) provides a lot of anonymity and privacy. Under the veil, women of different class, ethnicity, and attractiveness are equalized. It's often quite practical too, as the loose cloth shades them from the sun but is very breathable in the heat. And of course they don't have to deal with people harassing them about their looks (although some middle east countires, in trying to modernize, have harassed and even outlawed full veils).
practicality is only important if it's required for in-universe consistency or if it gets in the way of a character design's mobility.
bitching about "practicality" far more than you logically should is something only armchair art critics do, and it's usually only done as an excuse to shit on "gay Japan animu shit" (/v/'s reason for doing it) or to show how progressive you are (Tumblr's reason for doing it).
people only do it when bitching about "faggot" male JRPG protagonists or "misogynist" female designs, but they never say stuff like "Superman's design sucks because he has a cape, remove that impractical bullshit".
when blithering moron Aaron Diaz decided to "fix" this design to make it "believable and practiacal", he removed the cleavage and covered up the legs but left in the cape. that's really revealing of the true agenda behind such complaints.
>making excuses for shitty animation practices
>posts shit spinoff Illya
Nearly every character in Prisma is better than that iteration.
Pic related is best.
>ew, the human body is so icky and evil, stop liking it, you're making me so mad by "worshiping" such filth and garbage!
It's a wonder that you haven't committed suicide yet with all of that loathing towards what you're stuck in yourself. Fuck off and be emo somewhere else.
>nobody posted samus aran yet
>Not wanting to run around in the nude means you loathe yourself
Actually, it means I respect myself.
I can't imagine hating your body to the point where you just want to give it all away for free. That's what you do with garbage you no longer want.
I get that, and I know it's more of a matter of how you implement it than the realism itself.
Dragon's Crown would be a horrible point because all of the game's mechanics and elements work perfectly, despite how far of from real they are. That's why I'm not arguing against the game.
You seem to be mistaken, this is about good armor. Not shit that covers everything.
>Shameless, depraved, hedonistic, undisciplined, unrestrained
>Everyone else's way
>Reserved, disciplined, modest, purposeful
No thanks, dude. I'd rather not go back to the 'good ol' days' of fisting little boys in ancient Greece.
Respecting yourself also means respecting your body and not letting it rot away. It means exercising your body, being fit and able and being proud of it. This is what "celebrating human body" means in its truest sense. I don't know what kind of scenes of occult manner were you imagining in that warped head of yours when you read those words, but that's what the sane man's interpretation of it is.
>better than Prisma
This is what Zerofags actually believe.
Sounds more like you're terrified of yourself and everyone else and don't want to see things that make you cry in fear.
>not being ashamed of the human body = pedophilia
Ran out of less obviously idiotic shit to say, so you went straight for the most idiotic thing you could think of?
well yeah, of course there are gonna be some people shitting on iconic, super-popular designs to show how they're not sheep or whatever; my point is that it's not nearly as rampant. nerds *generally* complain about 'practicality' as an excuse to hate on 'gay animu bullshit', sexy female designs both, from my experience at least.
How Jayson "lolicon fantasy" Schreler can still show his face in public after that cascading hissy fit he kicked off, that only resulted in the game being Vanillawares biggest seller yet, is beyond me
I'll do you one better friend
name one muramasa girl that's better than torahime.
Secondaries always make me laugh.
I bet you don't even have a loli onaho
Can you think of any comics where practicality actually is a consideration? Watchmen did it as part of its grim-and-gritty considering-the-ramifications-of-things-usually-taken-for-granted routine, but are there any others?
It's what happens when normies steal yo maymays
Secondaries are literally the worst thing to happen to the fanbase, and try to influence the adaptions of the original works to fit their wrong viewing order. Prismafags just want Prisma Illya to stay Prisma Illya rather than have other series be dictated by it.
You're the one who equated not being ashamed of the human body with everything negative about the human condition and pedophilia. "Fisting little boys in Greece" was your exact words. Funny that you think that if we weren't terrified of seeing our own bodies that we'd immediately start raping children.
