Soo in an effort to celebrate even the small achievements in our gaming culture I proclaim to thee that the new cod will have female Characters available in multiplayer… WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! An interview at Kotaku shares a few of the tentative reasons why it had never happened in previous iterations of the game if your interested.
Coming away from the Gamescon reveal I was not really impressed at all but this time, regardless of the reasons I think I’m duty bound by some sort of girl gamer code now to buy it. It’s been a long time since my last one though, way too long as there was never enough reason to buy into their annual clones. Playing this though is just going to make me want female characters in Battlefield 4 even more… two steps forward yet one foot always firmly planted in the past as always.
Also I have one thing to say to those campaigning against this under the guise of “realism” and immersion. (excuse the language) Fucking suck it ahahahahahah
OOOOOH, I was feeling remarkable silly (might have been a weeee nip of vodka) and rewrote a part of Martin Luther Kings infamous “I have a dream” speech
I have a dream that one day this media will rise up and live up to its true potential in the truth that all gamers are created equal.
I have a dream that one day we will run and gun on the hills and valleys of Arma with those of the misogynist and chat together as clans people.
I have a dream that one day, even in the land of fantasy, a land overburdened with plate mail bikinis and objectification that we will be reborn into a paradise of subtlety and choice.
I have a dream that one day we will play in a global space where gamer’s will not be judged by the shape of their genitalia but by the contents of their steam library.
That is my dream
