    I completely believe Levine when he says he hasn't given it that much thought because looking at the character all I see is yet another generic female lead for a video game. He has created a character with big eyes and an oversized chest which is practically bursting from her low cut top and then moans when the audience this is so blatantly aimed at then decides to conduct a low brow conversation about it on the net. If you don't like it Ken then go ahead and 'break the mould' with my blessing, dress her with some class, take some of the emphasis of her tiny waist and massive hooters, try to make her less of a teenage w**k fantasy and you might just find that a bit of realism is more attractive than the plastic portrayal of the female form you have created. Bioshock is awesome because it is original but the one place you couldn't deviate from the norm was the female lead. F****** hypocrite.

    I completely agree. Its typical of modern character design and frankly I'm not too surprised. I'm surprised she isn't blonde or a red head! To say that the garb is appropriate for the era is blatantly untrue. Although it may be typical of a prostitute in that era...

    lol gamers love to bitch about everything, I don't think any other group complains more except the elderly.
  • Yaro - January 4, 2012 6:49 a.m.

    Shrink her eyes and shrink her boobs, she looks like a porn industry mutant from japan or something. All those possible expressions and things are useless when I just can't take her seriously (or am horrified everytime i look into her eyes). Goddammit, my single issue with this game...At least Booker looks cool, though I guess we won't see much of him...
  • ThisIsMyFuckingThirdAccount - January 4, 2012 6:43 a.m.

    She reminds me of Annie from Community. I'd be down for a threesome with both.
  • obviouslyadouche - January 4, 2012 6:12 a.m.

    He says he doesn't care yet her boobs have increased in size every time the game has been shown off.
  • BladedFalcon - January 4, 2012 5:52 a.m.

    As much as I respect Levine and Love Bioshock. I got say his attitude's kinda Illogical. I mean, they are the ones that made Elizabeth large chested and put her on a low cut cleavage and corset. How can you expect people NOT to talk about it? It's like women that wear tight jeans or miniskirts, and then complain that men on the street whistle at her or compliment her ass. If you want people to focus less on the woman's body, then you should... y'know, focus less on showing the woman's body :P
  • ThisIsMyFuckingThirdAccount - January 4, 2012 6:47 a.m.

    I want Love Bioshock to be real. Can that be a mod?
  • BladedFalcon - January 4, 2012 9:22 a.m.

    Derp, that was meant to come out as "As much as love Bioshock and respect Levine." but rushing to write a comment before bolting out to go to work plus just waking up is a rather bad combination to my grammar awareness XD
  • GamesRadarMatthewKeast - January 4, 2012 10:57 a.m.

    Actually, no, they're not the same thing. Women are people, and they have a right to wear whatever they want and not be harassed by sexist douchebags. I don't care what a woman is wearing. It's not okay to whistle or talk about her body.
  • BladedFalcon - January 4, 2012 11:52 a.m.

    It's also not okay to draw porn of videogame characters and jerk off to it. But people still do it, SPECIALLY if the character is drawn in a way that motivate them to do so. I never said it was okay or acceptable to whistle or be an asshole to a woman. I don't do that, nor I condone that behavior. What I was trying to say is that, basically, if a woman doesn't want people to focus or comment on her boobs, the logical thing to do would be to use clothing that does NOT put emphasis or bring out that part of her, but if she instead wears a low cut cleavage shirt, of course people are gonna notice, so it's still kinda her fault. And that's what I think applies the same here with Elizabeth. If Kevin Levine didn't want people to focus on her boobs, either he makes her chest smaller so they wouldn't pop out of her corset. Or he uses a dress style that wouldn't expose them like that.
  • MsSmith - January 4, 2012 1:11 p.m.

    It kind of just sounds like based on this post and your original post that women who dress a certain way are asking for harassment. Also, clothing that emphasizes sexually aspects of a women's body is really subjective. I have had guys whistle at me when I was wearing jeans, a long-sleeved shirt, and a trench-coat which doesn't show much of my figure off. If anything the design of Elizabeth's body comes from wearing a corset which compared to other female video-game characters like Ivy where nothing is left to the imagination, is really conservative.
  • BladedFalcon - January 4, 2012 2:12 p.m.

    Not necessarily asking for harassment, but it DOES add further temptation for disgusting men. And as you said, even when you dress normally or in a way that is not considered suggestive still makes you a target for douche-bags or pigs, so when suggestive clothing is used, it stands to reason that it would even be potentially worse. And well, I guess that compared to videogame women standards, Elizabeth DOES stand on the conservative side. I'd hardly call that conservative in real life, however.
