Just wanted to highlight the difference between two “busts” of zombified women from two zombie-centric video games. Left is Dead Island from Deep Silver and right is The Last of Us from Naughty Dog. 

Pretty stunning how they contrast considering they are both kind of the same thing. Ignoring the fact that obviously quality difference between one is mass produced as a promo item and the other is a one off commission, but just note how Dead Island’s is literally the torso of a woman with no head, poor breast anatomy (and anatomy in general) just to appeal to male gaze. Even in death a woman’s body must above all be sexy. 

And the opposite for TLoU, the top is a top you’d see on any person, the head (what’s left of it after infection) is entirely there. The anatomy is spot on the skin is gross the whole thing is legitimately grotesque as it should be. 

It just shows two really disparate attitudes to women and their own video game if you ask me. Just wanted to save this for myself to remember vov

When a game is delayed, it's commonplace to bring Miyamoto quote which says "A delayed game is eventually good, but a rushed game is forever bad." And while this is true, it doesn't change the fact the game is late and depending of who you are, your interest on it may have come and gone. Perhaps you now lack time, or have new interests. Whatever the reasons, sometimes we build up our interest to match up a release date, like a hungry pavlovian dog, salivating to the release date and when this release date is busted, well.. Honestly, I lose interest on Mighty 9 when they showed the 3d graphics so for me delay or not changes little BUT if I was hyped by it I won't be happy in waiting for a polished version coming later. Simply put, I want my game polished and on time, and if you can't do it don't put a damn release date. Getting a polished, working gameis better than a buggy ridden version but doesn't change delays sucks. It's almost like receiving a working game those days is some kind of divine blessing and we should praise it like God's gift.
