Eh. I just feel you could talk about your Nintendo games on whatever thread that the game can be played on. Feels redundant. But whatever. You do you, I suppose.

Game controversy!  A pose deemed too sexy!

http://www.ign.com/articles/2016/03/29/blizzard-to-change-overwatch-pose-following-fan-complaints

Aren't almost all characters in games oversexualized or over exaggerated?  I have never played this game, nor have I really heard about it, so I don't know any context here.

Holy crap people will complain about anything. I'm aware of Overwatch, some-what excited for it (some-what because I want to play it but am not sure if I can run it) but I wasn't aware of this "controversy".

Why? Because I find this crap dumb.

Oh god I saw this. Or more accurately my friend showed me. The character is supposedly a really fun, kind of cheeky character. So it doesn't seem far fetched to me that she'd be in a pose like this, looking at someone behind her holding her guns in the air.
I think it's utterly stupid. She's not being oversexualized in my opinion. It's just a butt.
If anything, the people saying it's oversexualized are making it that way because they're looking at it sexually.
I can stand like this with my yoga pants when looking behind my shoulder at my friends, does that make me oversexualized?

So in reality, maybe three or four people complained and the media and Tumblr verse took it to the extreme?

Basically.
And Blizzard (I heard) caved into their demands. Now my friend is worried because these people saw they won with this, they'll start complaining about the other female character who is apparently more sexualization or something, but it's part of her character or something.

I don't know, I just hate SJW's. They ruin everything. Literally everything. You want to make a difference in the world? Get your butt off the computer and go to Africa like MS did and do some real good for this world.

SJW = social justice warriors.  That is for those who don't know.

I don't have a problem with that pic.  There are far more important issues to get worked up about.  Besides, most games, let face it gals, are geared towards men and boys (possibly the same thing?).  Though I also don't think a game cover with sexy girls is going to cause someone to buy it unless they are actually interested about the game.

The pose is DLC though. It doesn't even come with the basic game, it's something you buy as extra.

Sort of like how Rockstar games got in trouble years ago for a mod on GTA San Andreas which allowed a player to have shenanigan fully clothed with a prostitute.  It wasn't in game's release, but was added by nodders so that anyone could download the mod and play that.  Rockstar got in trouble for what game modders did.
