  • If you blinked you'd have missed the image of a trans in the ad anyway. I know I did.

    This one image of an as yet unreleased game has caused quite a stir in the gaming community, which isn't difficult anyway. It's also interesting that a woman designed the poster in the in-game advert and I'm wondering if the reaction would have been even stronger had the designer been a man. By the way, can you still say man or woman in this confusing LGBTQ+ world?

    The game is supposed to portray what the world might look like in 2077 from a cyberpunk point of view. It's fiction. It's a video game, yet people still get offended.

    Here are two articles very well written on this supposed faux pas.


  • You're no longer a gender, you're a body type.

    Yes folks, read this from the devs of Cyberpunk 2077 and weep.

    "We really want to make a video game that’s really inclusive. Of course, if you tackle certain subjects then you will expect people to have an opinion about it and we respect that. And it’s good that people give us feedback. And our character creation menu, for instance, compared to the last demo we now give you so many more options. For instance, you don’t choose your gender anymore. You don’t choose, ‘I want to be a female or male character’ you now choose a body type. Because we want you to feel free to create any character you want. So you choose your body type and we have two voices, one that’s male sounding, one is female sounding. You can mix and match. You can just connect them any way you want. And then we have a lot of extra skin tones and tattoos and hairstyles. So we really want to give people the freedom to make their own character and play the way they want to play."
