How do you explain this, /v/? Why is Dark Souls 2 the worst ever because it makes your character canon male, but nobody cares about BB?
>>
what about it is strictly male?
>>
There's nothing male about the character on that coverbox.

You can change body types.

Females don't play video games, especially not the likes of Bloodborne, so this is a non-issue.
>>
If you owned a coffin that would change your sex, and you knew you could safely change it back without any effects would you try it out?
>>
Nah, box art is fine; they can't show off a character with purple skin, a huge jawline and weird bug eye glasses.

Now Dark Souls II's intro, where you have a wife and a son, and if you take off your character's dirty rags you're obviously male before you choose your class, THAT is super fucked up. If you're just going to walk a hundred feet and then be made fully human and maybe switch genders, what's the point of the rags?

Even if this was true it's just the boxart, DaS2 literally shoehorns in a 100% pointless cutscene at the start of the game in which the character is male. It's completely different.

How? It's not like you have to look at the bloody thing while you play.
>>
>>322853525
The fucking point of Matosis' complaint is that the generic player model in the beginning of DS2 is supposed to be YOU. So if you make a female character, there's obviously something wrong there

Bloodborne's boxart isn't supposed to represent your specific character, dipshit
>>
>>322853768
Here's my female character from behind.
>>
>>322853525
>people think the dude on the box/in the cinematic is the canon MC

he's just another nameless hunter, in the same way Ostrava is on the demons souls box and Elite Knight is on the box of Dark Souls

quit false flagging. character in the cover art is androgynous. I'd understand if you had a gripe with the introductory cut scene. But the cover art is purposely ambiguous.

The Demon's and Dark Souls box arts both feature soldiers wearing the fluted armor. That means unless you make that exact character, your playthrough is noncanon. I guess that means both those games are irredeemable garbage now because clearly there is no difference between promotional material and in game cutscenes.

Underrated post to, but the DS1 cover character was artorias, not like that changes your point though.

I don't see how cover art factors into how you roleplay a game. Savan is on the cover of Dragon's Dogma too and that game has one of best and most diverse character creators in modern games. I'm guessing this complaint is out of context or just stupid.

Not compared to the Cutter it doesn't. You can't bitch about how your weapon takes skill and then cry when someone comes along with one that takes objectively more skill to use.

Peon, please. Untransformed cane is by far the most skilled weapon. Take your meme weapon out of here.

Uh, no, he doesn't state anything of the sort.

He literally makes no mention about the immersion concerning gender, just talks some shit like he wants Dark Souls 1.5 or whatever.

>>322853525
That's obviously Henryk.
>>
>>322874196

From the video itself, it barely sounds like it's an issue to him, but something he feels could impact players who would want a choice about their character's gender. But as this thread has proved, the hunter on the cover is ambiguous in gender, and anyone who has played the game knows they avoid spoiling your identity until you "make a contract"
>>
>>322874250

Henryk's clothes are yellower, than that, though. It's just the "default" hunter since it's the outfit practically everyone goes with in their first playthrough
>>
>>322874467
But Gascoigne's outfit is the best.
>>
>>322874576

I've really yet to see a bad outfit. Though I love how the old hunter's had and things like the charred hunter's cloak practically make you look like Vampire Hunter D. It's especially interesting since in the books, he's described as wearing a coat with a cape/cloak compared to the films where he has the armor/bodysuit and cape
>>
>>322861809
You can clearly see that the player model at the start of Dark Souls 2 is male.

Whereas in Bloodborne you can choose your gender and start the game and your gender is already set for good. Every scene will show your character in what gender you chose.


Also, gender is kind of ambiguous in Bloodborne. Prior to the DLC, the Old Hunter Bone hunter tool, hinted that Gherman had a male student, but Lady Maria is clearly a woman, when the DLC came out.

Old Hunter Brador of the DLC also recognizes the player, but even in the English dub, never refers to our gender, only acknowledges our return.
>>
>>322874467
There are two other sets you'll have, probably before you get the one on the box. As early game outfits go, it's a bit more hidden than the others. I would imagine that section of the sewer is the most overlooked place in central yarnham.
>>
>>322874785

I know about the one in the sewer, but I'm speaking from the general standpoint of what most first timers will experience, wherein many will just seek the standard garb and eventually find the free set in the sewers once they're able to reach the bridge with the wolves and cleric beast. Unless you have knowledge from friends or guides, I doubt most find the free gear without at least trying some of the on sale gear offered. Still, it's nice how the game does reward you with some great shit if you're patient enough and willing to allow some deaths should you fuck on the way to them
