Ashamed to be a gamer, but not ashamed of all my fellow gamers…

While I am still ashamed to be a gamer, I am happy to report that I’m not ashamed of my fellow gamers. Yesterday, the first Sin episode was released. I’m not done with it yet, but the first scene causes quite an impression. Apparently, the programmers at Ritual and/or Valve have spent too much time playing games like Dead or Alive because the first thing you see is the Elexis Sinclaire character bending over you with her breasts sloshing around as if they were water in a glass that is being violently shaken. I mean,not only do breasts not move like that anyway, but look at her, she obviously has a bra on, so there is really no reason for them to move around like that.
Thankfully, I’m not the only one who found that very odd. In the comments over at Bluesnews, at least two people had already posted about it. Now I don’t feel like the lone voice or reason or the crazy man standing on the street corner yelling at people as they go by.
On the downside, however, in writing this post I did a search for “boob physics” and found that not only were the creepy boobs available in Half-Life 2, but I also found one of the most disturbing videos ever. It isn’t pornographic or anything, but manages to simultaneously objectify a bunch of polygons, as well as ignore the effects of the violent actions performed in order to demonstrate that objectification. creepy. Call me crazy but I like my sexiness and literal violence as separate as possible…

    You’re right. That has to be one of the creepiest things I’ve seen in a while.

    I’m not sure where this fits in:

    But, damn!, it’s hypnotic.
