Re: My thoughts on Halo 4

: Lust.

: There's a difference between implication and blatant visual imagery. Yes it
: was clear she was intending to present herself as a female figure without
: adornment, apart from the nature of her existence - holographic digital
: lines and bits of data. And her initial depiction was visually undeniably
: different than how realistic she's being depicted now (and it's not just
: due to an improved graphics engine). Surely you can grasp that
: difference... =/

: YMMV. As I said, it depends both on culture and the person viewing said
: media. In western culture and particularly the circles I people I often
: associate with, her display is extremely sexualized. Unnecessarily so.
: Before, she was a holographic feminine figure. Now she's an anatomically
: accurate naked woman who even appears as if she has substance, not just
: formed of..whatever she was formed of in HCE =P

: o_O

: Seriously?
: Whether it's camera angles, or shading, or level of detail, or innuendo, or
: just the fact that she's, you know, not wearing clothes , there is very
: much about her that's presented in a sexualized fashion, in context of our
: culture. Far more-so than if her shape were slightly less 'detailed'

: erm... please don't get into the realm of implying with whom I should or
: shouldn't be friends. You probably want to steer clear of that in this
: discussion.
: First impressions and lack of context play a huge role in understanding.

: And that is the ongoing discussion in western culture.
: And no, from my position, if it's not already clear, the growing realism of
: Cortana's nudity doesn't make sense given the character I've grown to know
: and love, and given the type of video game in which she's a character.

: Here's a quick image I brushed up from one common image I grabbed, making a
: few minor adjustments and such, just to show how a few small changes and
: can make a big different, while still retaining her classic Cortana
: presence, but without what many may consider unnecessary attention to
: realistic detail.
: And as usual, YMMV (you do know what that means, right? and that there's a
: reason I put them in my comments in the places I do =P)


: That is still Cortana.
: And a less blatantly naked attractive woman. =P

youre imposing your own sense of morality onto the subject. why does breast size have to matter at all? if this is an argument about aesthetic changes then we could discuss the entire series and how it has evolved from a purely artistic perspective. but this seems to be an argument about ethics. should they just make her wear a hijab and censor out her breasts all together? that would be cool i guess.
