Just this morning, Codemasters presented a new franchise entitled Damnation, with a couple of screens to accompany their announcement. Two questions immediately spring to mind: 1) When is this shit going to stop? 2) Are all character designers idiots? Yeah, adding tribal tattoos and a few extra belts will help me relate to your bland, generic female character, for sure. Come to think of it, it will probably help me relate to real-life women in general, because everyone loves sluts with huge lower-back tattoos who can’t even dress themselves properly. Jesus Christ. Dawson is not going to like this. Because as you all know, Dawson doesn’t care for boobs.
I recently wrote a post on character creation, which is due out soon, so I must admit that the timing for this announcement is striking. Still, it burdens me with shame. Proud to be a gamer in these days, anyone? And please, easy on the “u are gay” comments.
