Also, props to Ninty to marketing Bayo2 with Playboy. Zero fucks given.
>Is a good thing, right?
Now we need PS4 to become Playstation 2 2.0 and this gen might not be shit after all
Right?????? Maxim ads and porn industry parties next. NoA hasn't changed at all; still clueless.
>if the guys see these pictures, they're sure to check out Wii U!
Who the fuck thinks that is effective marketing?
Depends on your preferences. Personally I don't like it when Nintendo tries to be mature or edgy. It's out of character and makes me care about them even less because it shows just how out of touch they are with reality. They are stuck in the 90s in terms of cool kid culture. If they really wanted to market themselves as mature
they would have to make ps4 or xbone games with live action movie trailers and downs kid gameplay.
It's like those nerf commercials that show these andro 14-17 y/o boys in tight pants playing with nerf guns in these really awesome backdrops while in reality, most people over the age of 10 never touch a nerf gun because of paintball and airsoft and even if they were interested in nerf, there's a huge anti gun culture these days that discourages any sort of toy weapons.
Blocked RT @anon269164557 Alo, props to Ninty for marketing Bayo2 with Playboy. Zero fucks give .
You'd focus on the legs, and not on the full picture; that Bayonetta now really exists in the real world, and that the model's outfit, hair and make-up matches the character.
I don't think a real human has legs as long as in-game Bayonetta.
Selling ads for Johnnie Walker Black Label in Playboy is effective marketing.
Selling Nintendo shit in Playboy is idiocy. That audience is long, long gone for Nintendo. If they think it isn't, where are the commercials during NFL football? Oh they're there, for Xbone and Destiny.
>DIE CIS SCUM, STEMLORDS RAPE MISOGINY SEXISM
$60 a year for the entire Playboy suite (subscription, online Plus content, etc.) was one of the best investments I have ever made.
I shit you not, they have the best magazine articles, bar none.
I am happy their are at least trying, for god's sake. People were complaining about Nintendo's lack of marketing efforts and now they are at least doing something.
This is one of those attempts that in the future will be remembered as a neat marketing trivia. Will it be remembered for being successful? I seriously doubt it.
They probably choose a woman that had a similar face rather than a similar body. I can't say I disagree with their choice, damn. Bit of of a shame she's too short but damn, dat everything.
I keep saying this too but most people can't accept it, mostly for nostalgia issues. I loved the Cube and the Wii U just looks like it is shaping to be the the GC 2. Both for the good and bad reasons.
>I don't think a real human has legs as long as in-game Bayonetta.
Not even close. Usually in games the breast sizes are superhuman but in Bayonetta's case it's her legs. She also has quite a small head which further emphasizes her superhuman legs. Normal humans have around 7 times their head size in height, Bayonetta is something like 10-11, most of which is her legs.
I don't get it.
Did the Smash marketing department not get the memo that Nintendo isn't censoring shit anymore?
Wow. That's some obscure shit! She's like true ultra geek to the max!!
Playboy pretty much has crumbled, when's the last time you saw a woman you've actually heard of posing in the magazine? It's been nothing but reality show rejects and ex-girlfriends of sports nobodies for years now.
A lot of magazines are really, really cool. It's a shame they've been a bit phased out in favor of social media. Maybe the trend will re-balance itself in upcoming years; who knows...
I don't know why everybody is making a big deal, just because playboy put a tiny asian model to pose in the exact poses you can find in the game. They're not doing anything more daring. It's the same thing except in 3D.
That's not the "big deal," though.
Playboy is a company that has always carried a certain... weight to it. If you buy into advertising there, you know exactly what audience you are aiming for, and you know exactly what you are doing.
So along comes Nintendo, a company so afraid and entrenched in Japanese culture that it changes models in order to PROTECT THE CHILDREN FROM UNDERWEAR.
And what do they do? They invest money to advertise with Playboy, get a professional slut (sorry, there's no better way I can put that) to stand up there, strip clothes, and model for a character in a Nintendo-exclusive title.
They know the audience that will care, they know what returns they will make off of it. And this is new, and exciting. This is a step beyond "we'll cater to the hardcore crowd," to "we are going to be part of the hardcore crowd."
Where I live, Nintendo might as well equal NOA.
They make the marketing, they make the decisions.
And it was Nintendo of America who decided to the Playboy thing, which I find super impressive.
Ugh... You post made me want to vomit. You sound like you write for some gaming blog. All that reaching just to try and make it sound more sensational than what is really going on.
Bayonetta is a bawdy over the top stripper. So they got what is today THE safest model company, known for once being about bawdy strippers, to make material that perfectly replicates what's found in game.
I don't think you comprehend how shut-down Nintendo was to this sort of shit in the last 10 years.
By the way, I do write for a gaming website. (Not a blog, though, we get ~120K viewers a day.) What tipped you off? I'm trying to diversify my writing style.
Not him, but it's a bigger deal because it's Nintendo, which as he said and as we all know, has a history in the west for censoring anything sexual on a whim even though the nineties ended 15 years ago.
You serious? If you're joking, then let me say you sound just like every other gaming site writer out there.
>Muh conservative Japanese company.
>Feeling like you should apologize for the word slut.
>Ellipsis for emphasis.
>giving a fuck about Playboy. The most tame nude modelling company on the planet earth.
I mean a white British woman. She doesn't look Asian at all. And by Asian I mean butt ugly/disgusting
They should have honestly adjusted the costume to fit the "inaccurate" height.
Something like making the wings/hair covering her arms shorter, or the cut on the back smaller.
Or don't make full body shots at a straight angle or something...
>there were no asians in 1500AD
>this game is made in Japan
>this character is distinctly white
>this character is born in Britain in the 1500s
>this character has a western accent
But due to the first one, she is Asian.
It just makes sense!
Nintendo what are you doing
It's alright marketing to adults, but you have to remember that any of the mums considering buying Wii Us for their kids will see this and reconsider.
It's marketing to one demographic at the expense of another.
Fair enough on all counts.
I guess I just pick up habits based on what peers do, and that extends to 4chan.
God damn it. If there's one bad thing about writing for a job, it's that you'll never be able to escape it in your free time.
If you're going to cosplay someone at least have the fucking GENETICS for it you gronk swans
Not true, we need to find a female equivalent with Marfans Syndrome applied only to her legs.
I'm white and my hair is black. And I don't mean dark brown. It's black.
They don't need to.
It reminds me of something that happened in the UK a few years ago. Two radio presenters did a prank call on somebody, then moved on to the rest of the show and forgot about it. A little while later someone complained about it, which led to a massive campaign against them calling for them to be fired, and so on. When polled, over 80% of the people admitted they hadn't actually heard the thing they were complaining about, but still thought it was wrong.
My point is that the fact Nintendo have tried to advertise in playboy will spread through word of mouth, and end up with a bunch of mothers who don't play games thinking that the Wii U is a smutstation. It isn't, but that's not the point. A huge number of nintendo's sales come from that market. It's not a good thing for their marketing.
That's just ridiculous.
I haven't browsed through a playboy in ages.
Anyone have some really good sets I can look up, or torrents that are a worthwhile download?
On this side of things; Is there any larger res versions of this set?
>Heavy media censorship
>No gore allowed in vidya games
>If not for the Ottomans, Germany today would have been conquered by France.
The only thing you have to be proud of is jack and shit, and jack just left town.
Shame the game is probably going to be crap
all this jealousy of my northern european heritage.
i have just enough nigger in me to be advantageous when dealing with them. they can detect it. i work with mostly black people and they call me rush limbaugh, no lie. but they also call me an honorary brother.
mfw i have to deal with nigger shit and tennis shoes.
Shame. She got the face and legs down.
>mfw I managed to save it
I won't mess it up either, promise
>friend of mine has parents who buy him Playboy
>he has his room plastered with posters of naked chicks
>he has his own TV in his room
I was so jealous. My parents were basically sheltering me from the world and shit like that wouldn't fly with them. 11PM you need to be in your bed. You want a TV in your room? No, you're probably going to watch late night porn channels. Internet? No, you're going to visit naughty sites. I had to fight for the latter for a few months before one of them gave in. I'm so fucking glad I don't have to deal with any of this shit anymore.
I don't think they'll go bankrupt like some are saying but Nintendo seems to be a bit desperate to attract the 20 something males they've lost to Sony. Doing everything from porting over 1 year old shit AAA games no one cares for and dressing Peach and Daisy in fetish suits for the new Mario Cars game.
as a photographer i would have changed my vantage point to get that glass section line from growing out of her head.
i would have pulled highlights and underexposed that background. likely a limit of shutter sync speed fucking up the ability to cut ambient light, typically 1/250 second.
could have just underexposed the photo one stop in LR and then exposed the model/interior of the shot by a stop to give a similar effect, or got a camera that could sync faster than pleb tier shutter speed to kill ambient light a stop. or just waited until later in the day.
see this is the shit us photographers think about when we see photos like this.
milla is a nice model, a decent actor, but she can't be who she isn't. and she isn't curvy, it's just her genetics.
>tfw my parents let me have however much porn I wanted
>tfw they didn't give a fuck except maybe a few "aren't you too young for this stuff?"
>tfw my based uncle gave me 30 hardcore porn mags when I was 13
Many faps were had when I was a kid
That's sad, man. I bought my first Playboy at age 11. Also
>Internet at dad's place
>spend the whole night looking up doujins on old ass hentai sites like hentaischool
It was a formative time.
>n late grade school
>around gen1 pokemon was released
>visit a "dat guy" from my class to play n64
>his room is full of posters
>one half is naked chicks
>other half is kiddy pokemon posters
That was a hilarious sight.
Wish we had more people like you in the industry, right now it's all "hey, let's overexpose every shot and shoot in analog because IM A REEL ARTIST PAY FOR MY ANALOG SHOTS" (and then he proceeds to edit every single shot in Photoshop for hours)
NEW BUBSY 3D GAME CONFIRMED FOR PS4 GET HYPE
for real, i'm glad you appreciate it.
i'm actually trying to get out of photography, but i'm so well known locally that selling my shit on CL has caused some outrage. sold a 47 inch octabox with a grid today to a guy, selling my "L" glass 70-200 f/4 as soon as someone hits.
honestly current camera tech is so far behind the times it's sad. i feel i'll do better in ten years with ten year from now tech. not enough dynamic range, too much shadow noise, can't push and pull like i want to without compromise.
lightroom runs like a fag even on good hardware, i can only hope for the days of 5 ghz i7 9990k's with 512 gigs of ram and pleb tier 4 TB solid state drives with 20 TB platter drives.
also fucking sync speeds have to go up to 1/500 or 1/1000, digital shutter has to make a comeback. shooting with lights in daylight is misery right now, can't underexpose ambient enough unless i go full retard and f/16, which defeats the purpose of shallow DOF shooting at f/4 or wider.
sorry for going full /p/ but i'm disgusted with photography tech limits and it's damn near 2015 already.
pic related, a $500 light i'm selling just to get out of this business.
I blame Terry Richardson and other photographers like him who put flair and image above the actual fucking photography. The amount of shit coming from "up and coming" photographers these days is only paralelled by the models themselves all thinking they're the next Cara.
I'm sorry anon, but for typing in an emoticon you never really needed to put into your ironic shitpost, we are going to have to give you a consolation prize.
Please consider not doing this in the future so you can actually get better at ironic shitposting.
there, can everyone stop bitching about the legs now?
>mfw my special edition copy from Shopto didn't arrive today
The first god damn time something hasn't arrived next day from them.
>Implying a 3D woman could ever compare to Bayo
i work full time as a manager in the commercial print industry so time is an issue.
honestly i would love to be a career photographer but the state of the industry is junk and the value of photography continues to fall.
photography has become a rich man's hobby instead of a legit business for someone like me who puts their heart into their photos.
i don't blame uncle terry at all. in fact i laugh at all the hate terry gets. everyone that hates on terry has NO idea of what he can do professionally. he's the ultimate troll of the photo industry. he makes you guys think he's shit tier and fucks models, while he's actually competent and a legit pro.
i know it's hard for some people to understand but being a great photographer sometimes means being a complete pervert. a couple shoots ago i was shooting up a model's skirt. wasn't sexual at all, just what i needed for that edgy shot for the look book.
walmart lemon pepper chicken. the whole chicken. once you pop you can't stop.
How in the hell do I get off Kamiya's wild ride.
Itagaki actually has the track record of having made the best action/hack n slash that ever existed and i think they also realized that development hell hurt the game and pushed the release back.
I actually think it will turn out good in its own way, since the latest ninja gaiden games, the involvement of team ninja in fatal frame and other m indicate that itagaki took all the talent with him.
I would ask Kamiya if he ever thought of making a wrestling game, but I'm afraid he'll block me.
>mfw I realised I don't find 3D models attractive anymore

fug me poor life sucks
read that as banjo, that's not an image i want
>Do I have to understand the characters, setting, and story of the series before I jump straight into the sequel
I mean, I guess you could if you really wanted to jump in the gameplay but it would be much better if you played the first one.
It's really good, and it's relatively short, I think I beat hard mode in like 8 hours or so.
what about this one ?
>deleting posts when you can easily just find them in the archive.
How stupid are you?
These pics get out on Twitter and Facebook and people link them to entertain their friends. "Look what Nintendo is doing! Hubba hubba right? lol"
This is gets people talking and thinking about Nintendo
sort of like what's happening right now! except not only among jaded /v/ idiots
I swear, you dense motherfuckers with 120 iqs try to act smart by naysaying shit a marketing 101 student would even know is a good idea.
Where is my fucking copy hurry up amazon you cunts
I got my two disc edition from amazon this morning for £32, didn't even pay for fast delivery, wasn't even expecting it.
Not even playing it, just had a quick bash at bayo 1.
Will power through it soon though.
A. That's a college class-room, everyone sat in front of that board is an adult. And the lecturer most probably put it up there in a satirical manner, to seem in and relevant with his students, keeping them engaged.
B. Feminazis have always worked by pushing their shit onto kids. Their main way of recruiting is by messaging young girls, usually in their early teens, and telling them about how they are actually oppressed, slowly building paranoia about society, and a dependance on their fellow "freedom fighting feminists" within them. Before long, we have hordes of completely obsessed underage girls flooding social networking sights, blogging and messaging about the Patriarchy, and how the media is used to oppress them. It's been going on for years.
that's the biggest one i could find on their server.
here, have a shitty youtube screencap
game is great so far
The answer varies depending on the person you're arguing with by how much they frequent /pol/ and /int/. Personally I view olive skinned people as white, but others take white as only super scandinavians. Argentinians take themselves as white.
