Bisexual characters don't exist.

Sure, but if I've been playing Alexios completely gay, it's fucking dumb to force a kid onto him. For one, I turned down their romance option, for the other, I had no intention of screwing a woman as Alexios in-game.

So, yes, it's a valid complaint, Stufte. I figured you with your daughter would understand this better.

Alexios isn't gay though, even if you play him that way. He's bi. He has a kid. It's part of the story.

My Kassandra only slept with the super horny old lady and that was it. I turned down every other advance.

Bananas and JordanN are the same person. Bananas is so focused on "him" because it allows him to promote his views in the guise of mockery. All he does is repost what he posted on GAF and says "lol look at this guy!" while the information posted gets more views than it would on GAF alone.

I see you Bananas, you ain't slick.

Or maybe Bananas is just a fucking moron.  Occam's Razor and all that.

It's forced-bi. The character I played is completely gay until this DLC/story-expansion.

It's a complete forced choice after all that talk about "you can make the character the way you want to make them!"

Also the bold is bullshit. Only in you and Ubisoft's head-cannon is that true. And that's ONLY because they forced the choice. Before this DLC I could play with a total :snob Disregard women, acquire men :phil . thought-train and be 100% gay.

Then, there is, what is for me, the worst part. Iím a lesbian. I was happy to be able to play a character like myself the same way guys or straight women who play games do. Ubisoft made a big fucking deal of being able to choose your characterís sexual orientation. It was part of their marketing campaign. They used what is clearly a lie to sell the game. Lesbians donít fall in love with men, we donít have sex with men (except for closeted women who do what they must to survive), we donít cuddle with men, donít pine away for men, and donít long for them when they leave. Iíve had male friends move or die, and I miss them terribly. But! I do it because we were friends and you miss friends.

I know a lot of people who are here wonít get this or care because of the demographics and social leanings of gamers.[/u] What Ubisoft did was dangerous because these tropes about lesbians enter our real lives. When entertainment media do this to lesbian characters, it reinforces the myth that all we need is a good man to see the light, that we are secretly longing for a man, or that we can be turned. That type of thing gets us killed, injured, and sexually harassed. I canít tell you how many times Iíve heard that and been hounded by men when I tell them Iím not interested in them sexually and why. They cite movies, celebrities who claim to be lesbians for attention but end up with men, books, television shows, and movies as ďproofĒ that we can be changed. When I still rebuffed their advances, sometimes these men escalated it to verbal assault, spitting, and putting their hands on me while calling me a dyke or other slurs. Iím glad Ubisoft gave them a game to cite, now. By the way, I donít live in some hick town in the Bible Belt. I live in Manhattan, one of the most liberal cities in the world.

Lesbians across the world are subject to what is known as ďcorrective rapeĒ in order to make us straight. I know another lesbian who was raped for this very reason. It wasnít a corrective rape ordered by the government or at the behest of a tyrannical religious family, but by regular guys they knew from around. They joked, ďYouíre straight now, bitch.Ē Entertainment media contribute to this and Ubisoft joined them.

Ubisoftís games are played around the world by young impressionable men whoíll take this and add this to their memory bank. I wouldnít have bought the game if I knew this was going to play out this way because I donít finance my own oppression or that of others. I donít finance my own humiliation or that of other groups. Ubisoft, by flat out lying, made me an accomplice to compulsory heterosexuality and dangerous media tropes.

GaYz DoN't ExIsT. As you distinguished mentally-challenged fellowedly retort, Stufte.

You really don't have a pot to piss in when it comes to this beyond your daughter. If she's like "who gives a shit?" Cool. But there's valid reasons to complain about this and it's something, you a 100% straight-man will not understand.

I mean I get the complaint... Though the writing could justify it, maybe. Pressure to reproduce and have an heir, regardless of one's preferences or tastes in the matter, certainly was and is a thing. People on Era spoke of "forced romance" but that is what it was in that pseudo historical setting. Perhaps the dialogue can acknowledge that if you don't show interest in the mandatory mate. Perhaps I'm giving Ubi too much credit here, I'm speculating.

This is way more thought than Ubisoft and stufte has clearly given it. But this would be way better than "lol tough shit you played a gay character, they're now forced-bi! Dealwithitnerd.gif "

Bisexual characters don't exist.

even if you played kassandra completely gay, there's a very key plot reason as to why she'd want to get pregnant. and there's more or less one way to do that in ancient greece.

Right? You can't have genetic memories to tap into if your ancestors don't procreate.  :doge

Even so, it's their story, it's fucking DLC that these spergs don't have to play to keep their gay headcannon Kassandra gay for as long as they live.

This is a valid complaint if were going by that reddit post. Gay people like representation and are now angered because ubisoft spit in our faces. So spergy. Also sweaty the need for descendants was removed in origins, where the animus can tap directly into the persons DNA. It was a mummy in origins and blood on a spear in odyssey. They did this in the dumbest fucking possible way too, its a forced romance. If the PC is supposed to pass on their genes like pythagoras, then they should have done it like pythagoras. One and done, no romance fuckshit. Or even because this a game where pieces of eden were creating actual minotaurs and shit have some like fucking sci fi artificial insemination. There was no need to do it this way and ubisoft done fucked up.

even if you played kassandra completely gay, there's a very key plot reason as to why she'd want to get pregnant. and there's more or less one way to do that in ancient greece.

Right? You can't have genetic memories to tap into if your ancestors don't procreate.  :doge

Even so, it's their story, it's fucking DLC that these spergs don't have to play to keep their gay headcannon Kassandra gay for as long as they live.

This is a valid complaint if were going by that reddit post. Gay people like representation and are now angered because ubisoft spit in our faces. So spergy. Also sweaty the need for descendants was removed in origins, where the animus can tap directly into the persons DNA. It was a mummy in origins and blood on a spear in odyssey. They did this in the dumbest fucking possible way too, its a forced romance. If the PC is supposed to pass on their genes like pythagoras, then they should have done it like pythagoras. One and done, no romance fuckshit. Or even because this a game where pieces of eden were creating actual minotaurs and shit have some like fucking sci fi artificial insemination. There was no need to do it this way and ubisoft done fucked up.

I disagree. I think it's super dumb to get upset or angered about, it's a pretend character in a pretend Greece. Just skip the DLC and your character will be forever baby-free.

Also, I'm not sweaty currently, but I do sweat from time to time.

Can someone explain why Ubisoft got David Cage to write the story for the Assassin's Creed dlc?

Well again gay people like representation as its so rare so my enjoyment of the game was enhanced by having alexios get dicked down by errybody. If you give a carrot then take it away people are gonna get mad. The dlc shouldn't have been written this way, because it does take something away from gay people. Lets not pretend like media representation is some unimportant thing mmmk?

I want historically accurate video games, but I'm not gonna get upset about Battlefield 5 or COD WWII (or ASSCREED even) having unrealistic shit in it. It's just not that big a deal, and if this kind of thing upsets you, maybe go out more? Get dicked down IRL?  :doge

The proper way to produce an heir and continue the story while also remaining cognizant of modern sensibility is to have the player character be raped

This way it

- becomes a powerful statement about rape culture
- emphasizes that in contrast to the main story this was not your character's choice and thus not "out of character for them"
- shows the negative repercussions of cultures where abortion is not an option
- allows the player to experience this event for themselves and thus empathize with other victims
- demonstrates how men can be mistreated sexually too

Quote
Then, there is, what is for me, the worst part. I’m a lesbian. I was happy to be able to play a character like myself the same way guys or straight women who play games do. Ubisoft made a big fucking deal of being able to choose your character’s sexual orientation. It was part of their marketing campaign. They used what is clearly a lie to sell the game. Lesbians don’t fall in love with men, we don’t have sex with men (except for closeted women who do what they must to survive), we don’t cuddle with men, don’t pine away for men, and don’t long for them when they leave. I’ve had male friends move or die, and I miss them terribly. But! I do it because we were friends and you miss friends.

I know a lot of people who are here won’t get this or care because of the demographics and social leanings of gamers.[/u] What Ubisoft did was dangerous because these tropes about lesbians enter our real lives. When entertainment media do this to lesbian characters, it reinforces the myth that all we need is a good man to see the light, that we are secretly longing for a man, or that we can be turned. That type of thing gets us killed, injured, and sexually harassed. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard that and been hounded by men when I tell them I’m not interested in them sexually and why. They cite movies, celebrities who claim to be lesbians for attention but end up with men, books, television shows, and movies as “proof” that we can be changed. When I still rebuffed their advances, sometimes these men escalated it to verbal assault, spitting, and putting their hands on me while calling me a dyke or other slurs. I’m glad Ubisoft gave them a game to cite, now. By the way, I don’t live in some hick town in the Bible Belt. I live in Manhattan, one of the most liberal cities in the world.

Lesbians across the world are subject to what is known as “corrective rape” in order to make us straight. I know another lesbian who was raped for this very reason. It wasn’t a corrective rape ordered by the government or at the behest of a tyrannical religious family, but by regular guys they knew from around. They joked, “You’re straight now, bitch.” Entertainment media contribute to this and Ubisoft joined them.

Ubisoft’s games are played around the world by young impressionable men who’ll take this and add this to their memory bank. I wouldn’t have bought the game if I knew this was going to play out this way because I don’t finance my own oppression or that of others. I don’t finance my own humiliation or that of other groups. Ubisoft, by flat out lying, made me an accomplice to compulsory heterosexuality and dangerous media tropes.

GaYz DoN't ExIsT. As you distinguished mentally-challenged fellowedly retort, Stufte.

You really don't have a pot to piss in when it comes to this beyond your daughter. If she's like "who gives a shit?" Cool. But there's valid reasons to complain about this and it's something, you a 100% straight-man will not understand.

I dont exactly care beyond "lol Ubisoft" and RE getting angry because a marketing campaign lie to them in their pandering, but is still shitty. There is some ways they could justify this in story but that would require good writing (or not giving a fuck about believability... then again is AssCreed). AssCreed story is not exactly good enough to think this is a plot point they wanted to tell and not just "Marketing forgot to remind us  about that bullet point".

I dunno, he's clearly a massive cock mongler, but it's pretty funny he's taken it on himself to be Official Era Postcount Monitor, a job nobody wants, needs, cares about, or is even needed because it's built into the forum anyway.

Maybe 5 to 10 years of dutifully replicating default database functionality will get him to declaring avatars pixel dimensions or post word counts, and he'll finally earn the respect a human doing a browser plugins really deserves.

The amount of posts you have, it's easy to ignore you because you haven't been here long enough to have a credible opinion on this particular subject.

Don't bother lying and saying you've been lurking for months because I won't believe you.
18 posts in a year.

Remember to check.
Seven posts in a year.
94 posts since October 2017. Please cry more
Why the fuck am I talking to someone with sixty posts since last November. Nevermind.
He's got less than 140 posts in a year. That's not the kind of poster you take seriously. He's here to be stupid.
64 posts since October of last year.


Seems legit.
If I win I'm buying this forum and deleting every account with less than 100 posts since last year.
42 posts since October of last year, parroting the same tired ass argument that always, always, always misses the point.


You fucking trolls aren't even trying to hide anymore.
You literally just got here yesterday and you're less than ten posts deep. What do you think you know about this forum?
No avatar and 22 posts since October of last year.
50 posts since October of last year and no avatar. That's a troll's alternate account. It's not going to be good.
120 posts since October. Do the math.
Less than 30 posts since October and no avatar. It's someone's chickenshit alt account.
Nah, it's someone with 60 posts and no avatar saying "LOL corruption is awesome." That's trolling.
