@leoraptor1979 this was exactly my point at the beginning of my thread.
I enjoy a good game, also games with women as leads.
I dont like when they promote a certain plot and then do not deliver it.
You wont go to a candy store to buy a cake, only to find out home that it ain't a cake, but a somewhat cooked pork or beef...
If everytime I'd got a penny for trying to prove to people in this thread, you excluded, that I agree with the fact that overall women integration in scandinavian society was present and is welcomed by me - I'd be a billioner.
For some reason people here are getting triggered for the wrong reasons.
Since the bloody beginning of the post I was complaining about the misleading marketing and the lack of fully equal gender choice, instead I have to fend off people who think I hate women...
People are here to buy oranges from carrot vendor...
@gloomseeker "If you start ranting about not wanting to play a "leftist" game then you're setting yourself on the opposite end of the spectrum, so no need to be coy about it. By the way you're the one bringing politics into the discussion so you can't complain when people call you out on that."
Did I? Please remind in which game, when you start playing, there is huge banner hanging there without the possibility of skipping, saying :" This game was developed by multicultural team of various beliefs, gender and sexual orientation"? Pff. This is bringing politics in the game, not me. They are not writing it for their own amusement. They do it to please media, because media then will be more soft towards them and promote the game better.
Don't tell me that I promote politics. Lol.
"A viking, historically and 99.9% of the time, is a male. A brute male."
You know very little about actual vikings if you believe they were mindless brutes.The whole sentence reeks of toxic masculinity... Who would exalt the idea of men being savages without any trace of intelligence or reason?
I have never said that they were mindless. Lol.
Don't take my word out of the context. They were brutes, it is a fact that their diets were much better and included more protein, hence the average scandinavian was more developed and healthy than a European. Not much changed since then either and also majority of scandinavian would receive a basic battle training. They were brute people adapted to the harsh climate, where the only source of food and resources was the balance of cultivating and plundering their neighbors for goods.
In any case, I'm sorry (not really) to burst your bubble but not every viking was blonde with blue eyes.
My bubble? You really can't read the whole text. You just pluck out my words out of context.
This is a stereotype, captain Obvious. Of course they weren't all blonde and with blue eyes.
The majority of people see vikings as tall men with blonde or light hair and blue eyes. This is a stereotype, a world-wide btw.
You should try and keep up with recent studies, there's been a lot of progress since the 1930s.
Progress in what? There has been a lot of progress since 1930's in many fields, including making the idea of viking's even more romantic than they were.
@lordraven4430 you debunked absolutely nothing. Those were merely your assumptions based on the assumptions of historians.
Sagas are the only viable source of information we have about their way of life.
My issue is not with that.
My issue is a misleading marketing campaign. They promised equal gender choice, yet the game forces you to play as a female by calling you feminine pronouns, playing cutscenes with female Eivor and etc and etc.
Yes, I don't like it.
I wanted to play they way it was promised that I will be able to play.
@gloomseeker white supremacist fantasy? The heck are you talking about?
Norse people and/or the people living in the northern part of the world are dominantly white with light colored hair with some variations.
It has nothing to do with games, politics or beliefs. It is what it is.
This is an ethnic group. you cannot write it under white supremacists ideology or definitions...
@lordraven4430 read sagas. There is plenty of info there. Shield-maidens were rare.
Returning to my point. I have nothing against it
I dont like the promotion of the game. It was misleading.
And come on... Odin as female... Thats bollocks.
Would've seen Thor as some smoking brunette or if to be accurate with the norse mythology - as a smoking hot ginger
What else to expect from a leftist studio...?
Btw, the worst part is that the relationship with Randvi is the most boring one.
You dont have any options to do any activities, like drinking, shooting and etc.
While Petra, for example, has them.
Hope, they will fix it.
Even more than.
Yet there are minority of players with this knowledge advantage of yours. I bet the major portion players won't even be able to understand it, due to speaking different languages.
Thank you for sharing!
For me Eivor sounds like a similar name to Ivar (Ivarr).
