Why the hell did nobody tell me the Social Justice Warriors were on this thread!?

Leo656 versus Papenbrook is a throwdown I will absolutely pay for front-row seats to watch. Dammit, I'll jump over the ropes and tackle the referee!

In tribute to the fallen butt-cheek-slap, I say we bring back Official Technodrome Booty Sigs.

WHAT SAY YOU!?

alright. I might have overdone my comments. But come one, have you not read the other comments?

Blaming SJW for swaying Capcom to change the camera angle on Mika's butt taunt is as ridiculous as claiming the moon landing was faked. If someone is to "blame" it's ESRB for their rating system or Capcom for altering the camera angle. The butt slap is still there, the fetish costume is still there.

If a edited camera angle and a changed leg split is the bare minimum to change a rating from Mature to Teen, why not.

I'm not 100% convinced that's they're responsible, I just think there's a reasonable chance that their comments or potential for backlash was a part of what brought Capcom to their decision, given that has recently been the case with other things in the industry. I don't feel it's ridiculous to have those thoughts, as they aren't entirely baseless. & I'm not here judging you guys for not even accepting the possibility of their influence... We're all free to think what we want, no?

Frankly, I wonder about the moon landings, too.

The booty is very serious business, you know.

There is a difference between "sexy" and "stupid fanservice".
And "macho man" does not belong in this discussion. At least, not in the same vein as "sexy women". There is a difference between "cheap fanservice" and "power fantasy".

Does not mean that you should go overt and stupid with this.

And can't and won't respect nonsense, especially, even if it covered with "muh opinion must be respected".

Precisely. It's something to be celebrated.



Jokes aside, I've been following SF for about 15 years now (both the games and comic books), and given R. Mika's moveset and previous appearances in other games, it doesn't seem out of character. I mean, this is someone who knocks people over by flinging herself at them ass-first. She's also supposed to be one of the most capable fighters in the game's universe, beating the ever loving crap out of the toughest male characters.

Whatever sex appeal the character has, it doesn't take away from the power she wields as a fighter. In a fighting game, that's what matters, right?
She should be able to dress or present herself however she wants.

Why slut-shame a fictional character?

Sadly, many of the people talking about this stuff won't play the game, or ever care about the game. People will, from a distance, hear secondhand this-and-thats, and before you know it, it's all, "Yeah, I heard that game was sexist. It's got a little girl that twerks for money." It wouldn't matter if the makers of SF reasonably defended it.

Every since Mika came out in Alpha, it was always her butt, from Butt slams, to yes even slapping her own butt when she miss a attack.

I think Capcom did the wrong thing when they remove the slap. That would be like removing Cammy's icon win pose.

I'm kinda surprised this thread is still active. But... I'm kinda not surprised.

December 2015 at that. There's nothing to add. Put the necronomicon away for a more worthy topic.
