That's because Samus's armor blowing up was really really utilitarian and un-sexualized.
Sorry, but that wasn't the case for me... Heheheh... ;} I mean, *cough*, shit, where was I?

The screen goes white and you can bearly even make out more than a silhouette. It was so anti-fanservice that noone made a stink, and for good reason. Don't even compare that to this, okay? This *IS* viable fanservice.

Mmm, delicious 16-Bit skin. And I didn't mean to compare the levels of fan-service as an example, but the fact of its existence. It was the only example I could think of at the time. Yes, I am well aware that the exposure is only for a few seconds, compared to a prolonged exposure in 3rd Birthday. But viable or not, it's still there, and it certainly looks like it's depicting a 'mostly-naked' and 'mostly-defenseless' body, to me. Sorry, but this shit's all the same to me.

You see prolonged footage of a woman's clothing ravaged and torn over her mostly-naked, mostly-defenseless body. If that isn't sexualization, I don't know what is.
I am not denying this, but the series has always sexualized Aya and Eve in a matter that I have to ask "Why is it a big deal NOW all of a sudden?" Maybe I'm just being apathetic on the matter, 'cause in the end, I honestly don't care as long as the game-play is fun, and the Shimomura music remains awesome.

I think it's also worth mentioning that this kind of fan-service does nothing for me now, but its become so prominent in the series that I don't even see what the big deal is. They would have done it sooner if the PSOne didn't have to rely so heavily on CG scenes to show that kind of thing. Every other aspect of video games evolved with technology, so I don't see why fan-service wouldn't.

LOL, this really is a huge problem for some people isn't it?
I should have just said this. :P

Yeah, I brought that up a few pages ago, myself, as well as Eve's delicious mammary in the game itself. Seriously, fan-service in a PE game should probably be the LEAST of your worries. :P

No one gave a shit about Samus' armor blowing up in Super Metroid's game over animation over a decade ago. Now all of a sudden, tearing clothes in this series (which had a lot of fan-service to begin with) is like the end of the world. Good god, some people are babies.

It's been awhile since I was actually excited for a game, before seeing actual game-play. :P Hope they get some game-play stuff up soon. I'm VERY interested in this title.

God damn, that music makes me pretty happy~

I'm so excited for this game.

I'm sad some people aren't as interested because it isn't the Persona 5 they were hoping for...
Yeah, no kidding. God forbid Atlus do new IPs unrelated to SMT. Fuck.

We haven't had a lot of horror this gen, so I'm in.
I know what you mean. I've been craving more, since I finished doing everything in Fatal Frame 4. I am ambiance starved.

Just a link to go along with the thread: http://www.giantbomb.com/atlus-co-ltd/65-442/catherine-atlus-goes-hd-on-the-ps3-and-360/35-439210/

Needless to say, I am VERY interested.

Since when was fanservice an "essential mechanic" in Parasite Eve games?
With the way the art direction for the series has gone a decade ago, it was just waiting to happen. I'm not surprised that it finally did. :P

On a semi-related note, Eve's final form was actually kinda hot. :l

Haha, I'm going to end up unhooking a lot of it and sell my old stuff. No fear of shorting out anything. >.>

Also, I planned on selling a lot of my collection anyway. Anything I can pick up via PSN/VC/XBLA, I will probably get off there, and sell the physical copies. I've already started actually (Sold Wild Arms 1 and 2 for a good chunk of money, and re-bought it on PSN for the cheap price). It sucks to part with them, but I plan to be travelling, and unfortunately, I can't be a traveler and a collector at the same time. :/

I'll give in to your trend-setting! I have a couple of pics uploaded anyways (Taken from my laptop webcam). :l

10 consoles hooked up to one TV at the same time is a jungle-of-wires nightmare. :P


The other games I couldn't fit on the previous photo.

Sorry, but Aya was always about fanservice. I don't know why it's suddenly such a big fucking deal now. :P
11  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: The 3rd Birthday on: August 12, 2010, 08:14:11 PM
I personally don't give a shit. I just get to kick ass as Aya Brea again. ;}

I'm pretty sure that's what he was doing too.  But I'm giving him the benefit of the doubt, because "lol Minato looks kinda girly" jokes were boring before the game even came out the first time around.
I think the "lol P3 is such an emo game because he has emo hair" ones were even worse. Especially cause, you know, he was FAR from it. :P

Anywho, I got the game on release, along with the hat. Started a run with the girl, and wow, I feel like I'm in a new dimension. Junpei being flirty with me, Yukari being a lot more friendlier, and Akihiko's fangirl NPCs being infinitely jealous of me... I think I like this. Blasting through this game another six more times should be pretty easy. ;]

Also, <3 Rio.

You're damn right I'm excited for this game! :D I've been waiting a decade for a new PE. I don't care how it plays (as long as it isn't just plain awful obviously), as long as I have my ambiance, Shimomura music, and Aya Brea (which is still the only Nomura design ever to not suck, IMO :P).

Yeah, and I went even more over-board today, too:
