If the game is good, who cares who made it or what they do with it politically?

With that said, I doubt it will be good.

What game was that?
>>
>>262402225
Is it really pandering or dangerous if a game about crazy psychic aliens and shit has a character that doesn't identify as a normal gender?

They've had gender ambiguous characters in anime and video games before. This is just going a step further and avoiding the overused "Wait, is that a guy or a girl?" joke.

That threw me for a loop when I saw it. I could see the shitposting write itself.
>>
>>262402727
If they can't spell the word "he" properly, it can't have good gameplay. If the red squiggle under "xe" when using spellcheck wasn't enough to get them to fix a simple error, I sincerely doubt they'd spend time making a functional game.
>>
>>262402225
I'm assuming Xe is a name.

Right? Guys?
>>
You can call it whatever you want, but it's a fucking girl.
>>
Yes, the enemy who has a giant fucking crystal dick and labia is SJW pandering. It was probably the same in the Japanese version with newhalf being used somewhere.

That said, the localization is shit anyway for talking out most of the goddamn dialogue.
>>
>>262402446
OMG

>>262402225
It's a joke, anon. You can take jokes right?

Who cares. They used a "proper" pronoun, maybe first game ever to do so, and no one trying to push them even fucking noticed except a single tumblr post.

Also the bigender is killed by a religious fanatic anyway.

Killed is a strong term, but it did mark a dedicated shift towards a score-based focus that X5/6 already hinted at anyways.
>>
>>262403625
>>262403645

No mistake made. Xe is a (stupid sounding) new gender neutral pronoun.
See:
>>262403978

Honestly, the Japanese got this shit down long ago since they have gender neutral pronouns for gender ambiguous characters (i.e. Crona from Soul Eater).
>>
>>262404410
it's not even that good anyway.
>use gun to tag enemy
>use electricity to hurt them
>recharge
>rinse and repeat
>>
>>262404410

Eh, it's still a solid game despite the pronouns. Really, the localization is pretty hit and miss.
>>
>>262404562
I think with the Zero series being handheld, it's acceptable. Battle Network is definitely something that belong on a handheld too.
>>
Reminder that this is exactly the type of shit gamergate is going to bring about now that we've made them rally.

We made it worse.
>>
>using pretend pronouns

Great. I'm sorry I spent money on that game.
>>
Wouldn't Xe just be pronounced "She"? Or are we going by goofy sci-fi standards and pronouncing it "Zee"?
>>
>>262402727
>>262402225
Probably because this is the same level of shit as L'cie and Fal'Cie in FF13.

"XE" just simply does not compute as a synonym for he, and never will. Why they push this I don't understand.

It's really just the main way the Zero series differentiates itself from the other MM series, like ZX and its open world-esque design. Each subseries has its own unique thing; ASG simply feels like a spin on the Zero series.

I mean seriously I'm not trying to be cheeky I thought they/them was a completely fine and appropriate gender-neutral pronoun.
Xe/xir just sounds like an alien and it looks stupid

Eh, what was there got the point across well enough. Could've gone without the "jitt/gack" business, though.

If it had anything to do with SJW, you wouldn't be fighting and then killing said person.

I do want to know who localize Gunvolt though, because they shouldn't be hired for how lazy they fucking are.

How do you pronounce "xe?" Is it pronounced like the American letter "Z?" If so, why not pronounce it "ze."
>>
>>262402225
Somebody should straight up ask the dev if "xe" has a penis or not. Boom, gender identified.
>>
>>262407071
It's pronounced "kshshnguee", shitlord.
>>
XE XI XO XUM
I SMELL THE BLOOD OF FUCKING CISSCUM
>>
>>262407071
You pronounce it he, to piss them off.
>>
>>262407071
You pronounce, and spell, it "their", and adhere to the rules of the English language that were written down many centuries ago.

I don't get why we need a new word when there's an old one already in use.
>>
>>262402225
You dont even get to fight the xir guy. Some other white hair character kills him when you get to the boss room.
>>
>>262407071
I pronounce it like "Zee", just like when saying xenophobic or xenomorph.
>>
It doesn't make the game bad. Now, if the game actually does suffer in some way because of SJW pandering then you can complain. But getting mad about negligible shit like this just adds fuel to the fire.
>>
It leads a team of hunters.

>>
>>262407859
Why? I'm just curious.
>>
This ain't the death of vidya, it's the exact opposite.
Remember how we always tell SJW to fuck off and make their own games? Well, apparently they're doing that now!
If it rules, good for all of us. If it only speaks for a niche audience, well, good for them. Broadening the media is a good thing. If it sucks? Well, then they'll hopefully shut up (a little) and won't pester vidya developers anymore to make shit for them ; because now they proved that a) their concepts don't work and b) even themselves couldn't pull that shit off.
>>
>>262407616
It paints a future in which SJW won. That is clearly not intended in the original language and should not have been altered.
>>
Seriously, you're all being a bit too touchy here. You sound whinier than the SJW themselves. Think about that.

There's many lines between pandering, including and tossing shit out for no real reason.
This is the last of those. They were like,
>Hey, y'know what could be cool. If this guy was a guy and a girl... And had a crazy crystal want and tail.
Then the translation team got it and was like,
>Shit, this character keeps switching gender what do we call it?
>How about they?
>No, wait, it's supposed to be one person. And it's all sci-fi and shit. How about Xe?
>Fuck it, why not.

Really, the use of it isn't indicative of an agenda overtaking all games.
That's the same as crazy feminists saying including female enemies are indicitive of games being violent against women.

If it's a deliberate translation change then I can understand. That's basically censoring.

>>262407883
The laziness is more about how they opted out of translating most of the game, giving us another Battle and Chase localization, but yeah. The line was most likely there in the Japanese version too.

they call the characte something along the lines of transgendered person but they do not use a pronoun so it would probably sound like this in english
"the transgendered person leads a team of hunters"
most likely it was considered to offensive to be written like that in english so they used the sjw safe word xe, who did the translation anyway same people who are doing mighty no 9s, if so then yeah that would explain it, not saying they hould have called him tranny in english, but xe is just fucking stupid

Of course it has, but when do you see a word being replaced for no reason? The word "beer" has been around for, what, a thousand year or more? I honestly have no idea when they started make it. The point is, no brewery ever pushed to replace the word "beer" with some random shit like "xeer", in a confused attempt to get non-beer drinkers to start drinking it.

Wouldn't the default gender neutral pronoun for someone you don't know the gender of be "they?"

Are these characters familiar enough with each other that they would actually not only exchange pronouns, but respect each other enough to use the correct ones?

Japanese actually has separate words for many situations, and in this case they're often used when a gender is either unknown, or especially in writing when you want to keep a gender mysterious. This kind of language difference is common. A good example to read about for language-specific writing tools is Kafka's Metamorphosis, where he frequently writes in German in a way where the ass-end of the sentence can completely change the rest of the sentence that's not really replicable in English.

English has an ambiguous pronoun in "it", but it's never really been considered appropriate to use it for people other than infants or when referring to yourself (it's me). So it would come across as an insult in English to use for an adult, despite the fact it's technically correct.

I wouldn't really worry about all this xe/xir stuff though. There have been several attempts to introduce new pronouns to English for many many years for various reasons, and none have gained any traction. Pronouns are one of the most basic and most important aspects of language, and people in general simply will not adopt new ones for extremely rare cases.

This is also hilarious, from Greg Costikyan's "Gamersgate: STFU" article where he said he'd fight off anyone criticizing women with a katana:

Yes, that's how it works. When you don't know someone's gender, the correct way to refer to them in a gender neutral way is to refer to the person as a group. A group of one. They are a person.

No, "it" is not a gender neutral singular pronoun, it is a pronoun for a thing or literal object. An idea or concept is also a thing, so you can refer to them as an "it" when talking about one. "They" is a pronoun for groups, both for things and people, which doesn't use gender.

Not sure if they're still just running those; been a while since I watched. Only really remotely historical show on there last I recall was American Pickers, if only because you can see some neat stuff and get some interesting history on the items in question (without watching some guys try to screw people over at a pawn shop). Wish they'd show more actual history, and not just as holiday specials.

I think the last time I really enjoyed watching anything there was one summer many years back, where they did some weeklong marathon on human sacrifice across various cultures.

I seriously don't have a problem at all with a neutral gendered pronoun for the english language. But the word they're trying to force is so fucking horrible. It's so frustrating.

It's like if they wanted to paint a house with a nondescript, unassuming colour, and went with the most obnoxious unusual one they could. It goes directly against what the word should be for.

The only thing the extra buttons do is let you map one of the existing buttons to X or Y.

Other than that, it doesn't use the full DS screen size for the games, you see art for the bosses on the bottom screen (unlocked afterwards in a gallery), you can unlock the cards for MMZ3, and to unlock everything you'll have to play through the stupidly easy easy mode at least once.

The character is neither a he or a she. Calling the character an 'it' would of dehumanized the character. Not sure about the story, but it would of been in the translator's best interest to try and keep the character as 'human' as possible

And Xe is not some tumblr word that was invented last week. It was being used as early as the 70's

Or they. Just say they, the same as if you don't know the gender of someone to begin with because you never met them. See what I just did? Them and they is acceptable and has been used in proper English since the middle ages.

Xe is not a word at all - it's not a tumblr word or a word 'from the 70s'. It is simply not a word. It's made up bullshit, saying something doesn't make it a word. FURHRGURHGUG isn't a word just because I've used it now.

The "correct pronoun" for a character with absolutely no gender is they or it, neither of those dehumanize anything.

And this, this is bullshit;
>it's about using the correct pronoun for a character who literally has no gender, even in the japanese version

In Japan they simply leave out the honorific. That's it. You never say "he" or "she" in Japanese to begin with. Staying androgynous in Japanese media is very easy because the language doesn't USE PRONOUNS IN THE FIRST PLACE so don't sit there saying it's the "same in Japanese" you stupid fucking piece of shit.

Ee = Retared
Fe = Iron, Fee, Fey
Ge = Gee, Gay
He = Whoops
Ie = Retarded
Je = Sure
Ke = Key, Kay
Le = Lee, Lay
Me = Nope
Ne = Nee could work, but not Nay.
Oe = Retarded
Pe = Pee, Pay
Qe = Key, Kay, Quee is just Queer and Quays are for boats.
Re = Already in use
Se = See C
Te = Tee, Tea, Tay
Ue = Retarded
Ve = Sure
We = Already in Use
Xe = Sure
Ye = Sure
Ze = Sure

So it's either D, J, V, X, Y, or Z.

X and Z can both make the same sound of Zee and X is frequently used in situations where information is not fully available.

So what exactly is the problem besides you being a fuckhead about it?
>>
>>262406602

It is. I've heard social justice-y speakers try and talk about people using "Xe/Xir" but I've never met a gender neutral person who actually goes by them or expects others to do so. Also this shit's been done before.

I don't see what the problem is. The character of Zonda, which the pronouns are used for, has an ambiguous gender. You're not supposed to know if its a man or a woman. If the game refereed to the person as an "it" it would sound like the characters are trying to insult the person. Which would be a bad translation. Xe/Xir might sound weird, but what the fuck else are they supposed to do. English doesn't have gender neutral pronouns.

I was able to get a download code just to play Mighty Gunvolt, and honestly, that's all I really wanted. A download code for a free game; but Mighty Gunvolt was so disappointing, it convinced me that not even Azure Striker Gunvolt is worth paying for.

I like inti, but I don't want to pay for anything that 8-4 Play touched. After what happened with the Mighty No. 9 shitstorm, I just don't want to deal with any of it. 8-4 Play's intentionally shitty translation for Mighty Gunvolt was so fucking cringe worthy that I don't want to pay for more of that kind of "humor".

>XE
I don't care about that anymore. But, not giving a shit was what got us into this mess that /v/ is facing right now; at least now people are starting to voice their concerns en masse and it's finally having an effect, so power to them.

Mighty Gunvolt could have been MUCH better, and I'm afraid that Mighty No. 9 and Azure Striker Gunvolt will be on the same boat.

People are lazy. If you want something to catch on, it has to be easy. It's basically the only thing "xe" has going for it.

The people who actually would use a gender neutral pronoun shouldn't have a say in if it resembles them or not?
>>
>>262417137
It's not an alien though. It's an adept. Basically a human with magic powers. In the context of the screenshot in the OP, the girl who refers to Zonda as Xe works as the adjutant for a group that tries to end the abuse that adepts had to endure at the hands of the game's antagonist. It wouldn't be fitting of her character to call zonda an it, villain or not, as she is possibly an adept herself.

Personally I think a they would have worked. No reason for that Xe shit at all, but at the end of the day it's understandable

Even if it's easy, it's not right. I realize that language evolves but this is annoying devolution. People put absolutely no value in being well spoken.

No, I don't think they should.
Should a person who for whatever reason doesn't want to be called "human" have the right to go around chastising people for using the proper word to describe them?

Well, Mighty Gunvolt is the first title I've played where I see him credited as "Inafking" instead of "Inafune" or "Inafune Keiji". It was just so weird seeing, but like I said, that shitstorm that happened last year really pissed me off and I lost a some respect for him. Plus there's that whole issue with Comcept not making Gunvolt available to everyone. I can like his games, but I don't have to like him.Not that I really praised him in the first place anyways.

It looks interesting, gameplaywise, but Azure Striker isn't very high on my list of games to buy right now. So even if I was to buy it regardless of what I thought of Comcept, it wouldn't even be soon anyways.

Every single MN9 thread for the past year has been "it looks like shit, you should get Azure Striker Gunvolt instead, that looks amazing"

You can write around using pronouns by referring to the character with job/combat titles ("the blacksmith" or "the archer"), regional origins ("the American"), known visual cues ("straw hat"), etc. It doesn't have to sound forced if you do it well, and people won't even notice the gender is missing.

>I never played Megaman 1 or 2
He's listed as INAFKING in those.

How do you force a dev, and an indi dev no less, to add thing to a game?
>>
>>262418786
Only if you have no understanding or grasp on the extremely basic fundamentals English. This isn't some high level pretentious way of speaking. "They" in this context is something you (see how you doesn't literally mean you, but 'you' the person I'm speaking to? wow, truly confusing, just like they!) should have no problem grasping after kindergarten.

>>262418948
I don't mind they, I don't mind xe. People should be mad if they had used they, people shouldn't be mad because they used xe.
Everybody has sand up their manginas lately, so much bitching over nothing.

>Should a person who for whatever reason doesn't want to be called "human" have the right to go around chastising people for using the proper word to describe them?
why the fuck not? who gives a shit? if someone want's to do that, they can go ahead, and you can just ignore them for being an annoying cunt, and whoever is willing to put up with that shit can.
>Language is something that belongs to everyone
and because it belongs to everyone, anyone is allowed to request it be used in a manner that makes them comfortable.. What, do you bitch about people who ask you not to swear in front of them too?

Why do all anti-gamergate fags have such horrible grammar and/or misinformed opinions?
>>
>>262404762
you can oversimply any fucking game like that
gunvolt is an awesome game.
probably one of the best games to come out this year.
a fucking game fucking finally, a game that feels like a game, not all these shitty experiments that all other companies throw at us

>>262419463
Well, back when I played it I didn't pay attention to the credits, so thanks for clearing that up for me.

>SJWs complain about games
"fucking idiots should just make their own games instead of whining"

Anti-gg? Why? Hating on xe is a /pol/ thing. Go make a thread asking their opinion there.

Who cares? Is the gameplay good? That's what you should care about.

Watching retards play Halo and enjoying it back in 2001.

>>262419793
Yes, this is the only 'game that feels like a game' released in many years.

Of course that excludes hundreds of releases, but hey, as long as you feel right, bro.
>>
>>262419994
>"games are dead fuck this world"
Inafune "made" this game
>>
>>262419220
>So even if I was to buy it regardless of what I thought of Comcept

This game has nothing to do with comcept

>>262420068
Hating on "xe" should be a common thing. It's not a word, and never will be. No matter how many autists try changing things
>>
>>262420034
What exactly are the referring to? A robot or something, right? Is there a name attached?
>>
>>262419994
don't try, people on 4chan are mostly retarded.

let the SWJ do their own games, it's infinitely better than seeing them crying and destroying actual good games
>>
>>262420234
show me 5 games this year that don't feel like a movie, and is made by professionals.
>>
>>262420068
>Hating on xe is a /pol/ thing

No it's not. When did hating people using FACTUALLY made up non-words become something only /pol/ does?

You fucking gurringalappadoodledip.

>>262420242
He didn't make this game, you are mistaken.
Inti creates made this game, and asked inafune how to sell it because he is a good merchant
>>
8-4 localized this, same people who are tied to Mighty failure 9

they also cut a good chunk of story centric dialogue from the localization as well as 99% of the voice

honestly not that great of a game
>>
>>262419994
Because hypocrisy. Everyone complaining is as much of a faggot as the faggots complaining about xseed using "trap" in that shitty weeb game.
>>
>>262419994
Because the "fucking idiots should just make their own games instead of whining" thing was never said. What was really stated and desired was, "Those SJWs should go kill themselves."

This entire xe,xim,xeir or whatever the fuck it is, is the most fucking retarded thing people've tried to come up with. Either you have a penis or a vagina, and are referred as he/she as such.
