I only have investment in Metroid through Super Metroid so I’m not necessarily super into the series or anything but I totally back you up on this one.
I was kinda unaware of the bikini thing and the overt sexualization in ‘Other M’ and the Amibo’s until very recently and I have to say that it should absolutely be expunged in 2021 and beyond.
On the other end of the spectrum, I’ve read many females and writers speak to how women in media are normally in a binary between bald badass with a scar, or a hypersexualized character. So I don’t even know what the solution is, but not having Samus running around naked would be a good start.
Doesn’t surprise me, just learned Team Ninja made DOA Beach Volleyball.

Things illegal in Saudi Arabia
- Female athletes
- Females driving cars
Things EA makes video games about
- Female footballers
- Female MMA fighters
- Female drivers
Small stake all things considered, but ironic. Kinda tired of big corp doing business with the Saudi crown. WWE debacle was ridiculous and a massive step backwards for women's wrestling. Also not to mention the Crown told the airport to hold the talent hostage over a payment dispute with the company. Because that's how normal people do business. In the same year that Formula 1 announces Formula W to foster female talent in motorsport, they also announce a new race in Saudi Arabia funded by the Crown.
I just don't like supporting stuff like that. But it is a pretty small stake obviously.

Women can drive cars for some years I guess. :P But yeah, generally speaking I too don't like money is this important over much more valuable things about humanity.

@dipset I see it as an opportunity for positive change, but yeah the moment it turns into them trying to steer EA away from those things, get fucking lost.

Yeah, call me old fashioned, but I prefer my corporations avoiding business with literal murderers

Uh? Please don't spread misinformation and blatant lies. Yes, stuff like this has been against the law. But, the country has seen an enormous spike in support of women and general freedom and expression of thought. It has gone over and repealed many of the laws that were frowned upon within a very small time margin. People usually view this as a no-brainer, but the reforms happened in such quick succession that I think many foreigners believe Saudi Arabia is the same as it was 10 years ago, which is completely inaccurate.

@bam541 The comments hate it, and seeing that art, I kind of understand.

I hope that is just a stylized cover or something. That's some really poorly traced game asset level shit.

Looks like Street Fighter is coming to Fortnite. I'm sure streamers' fans can look forward to plenty of Guile's theme in the coming months.
This is seriously cool, a extremely late N64 build of Dinosaur Planet is out, a build from just after Star Fox elements got added.
Looking like the Hawkman is coming to Switch soon
@dmcmaster probably when the PS5 and XSX versions come out just like Crash 4
so happy to see this. Xenoblade 1 & 2 and yes even X are all amazing games and don't get anywhere near the level of attention they deserve

There's this interview article from GQ Magazine with Jim Ryan that has so many new tidbits from PlayStation. Among other things: confirming more games are coming to PC, PSVR2, and promising more new games will be released via PS Plus. Also GT7 is delayed to 2022, bummer.
I think I'm ready for PSVR2, missed the bandwagon the first time. I'm excited about it being single cord based and also having new controllers, I have used PS Move in the past and I'm not exactly excited about using them again.
@bam541 so much for "exclusives" lol

Now all those (not) exclusives are no longer real games. 😢
