Okay Jim, big fan, wanted to rewatch the video before mis understanding. Namely because i was listening to your episode in my ear on low cause other people were around.

And... some times you say and do things I don't want other people to hear me listening to.
No I don't want you to change ^^. Your solid. And there are so many damn ways I could respond, as apposed to "shut the fuck up". And that's exactly what I should do here, but I simply don't have it in me LOL.
1
I could ask "Jim do you even like breasts?" making a cheeky reply and leave it at that.
2
I could state I am a pervert (an advanced one dare i say) and if dead or alive in fact went away, because I'm a high level pervert I'd likely not care. We're on the internet as we speak with so many (Furry,shoes, etc) things to speak of seeing perversion leaving gaming would be nothing to true perverts.

How ever this is a fun enjoyable pleasure for the repressed unable to delve into lower venues of entertainment.

I think if people get off on dead or alive it's simply because there "not jaded enough".

Fine point on gentile mutilation Jim, a neat parting jab at our friends from the middle east, but lets be honest Jimmy.

Japan has issues. Issues that furry doesn't even begin to break down just how.....obtuse the socially acceptable desire level is over there.
4
fans wanted to kill and raped a journalist what 2 episodes again? Kill than rape.
These same fans. Jimmy, come on, lets not give these fans a free pass. they don't deserve it.

wow I think i handled that fairly well (at least for me)
as always all my respect (or at least the best parts)

Magog.

Ohh for fuck sake Jim, grow a sense of humour.
Nobody takes Dead or Alive characters seriously. And as for realism, well some girls do actually have breasts that big, the chances are that everyone here knows someone with breasts that big - and if not, go look up Misshannahminx, and tell me she would look out of place in that game.

But, the reason why I'm posting, is to show some disdain at the tired old pro-feminist stalwart comment... In shome culchurs, them mutilate womens varginazzzz... durrr....

Every fricken thread about this stuff, someone mentions that, as if we don't know and need some hipster fucktard to point it out.

Here's a question for you... if female genital mutilation is so horrific, how come circumcision is widely accepted and performed. Isn't it the same thing? - How come genital mutilation is acceptable for boys, but horrific for girls? - is our society really that fucking shallow. Stop putting female genital mutilations on a pedestal as mankinds worst atrocity, because the fact that doing it to a male is somehow reason enough for a party, this silver bullet of sexist debate is so fricken sexist and obvious that you might as well just punch yourself in the groin instead.

We can't care too much about sexism when we are so driven by religion that we mutilate the genitals of more than half the male born population of the world and don't raise an eyebrow, it's all ok, it's not like in some African cultures where they actually mutilate the genitals of girls.

Maybe the human race should outlaw the mutilation of any child, be it circumcision, FGM, or any act that affects the natural growth of a person. People should be allowed to choose in their own time, how they proclaim their religion - Mankind needs to grow the fuck up and learn to say no to retarded traditions and religious practices - and that starts by looking at all aspects, not just the atrocities that happen in far away jungles, but the socially acceptable atrocities that happen on your doorstep.

DVS BSTrD:
Being such a crowded sea bound country, you can't blame the Japanese for wanting girls with huge... "tracts of land"
But THIS is a bit much.

Ok, that was hilarious.

Here's a question for you... if female genital mutilation is so horrific, how come circumcision is widely accepted and performed. Isn't it the same thing?

Uhhh, no.

Unless when you were circumcized, your dickhead was cut off and your penis was sewn to your scrotum so that your future wife would have the honor of ripping your penis from your bleeding scrotum, then no, it's completely not the same thing.

I mean, you may have a point overall, but I don't think you understand what female circumcision entails and how it differs from the practice we call circumcision in males. You might consider male circumcision a travesty, but I, and many other people, were cut as babies and we don't concern ourselves with it. Some might, but the majority do not.

Gordon Freemonty:
Jim, thanks for making me momentarily fall out with my girlfriend.

Great video though.

This is a story that demands it be told.

I live with two girls basically. My roommate and my girlfriend. This was on screen when they both came back from uni. I had my headphones in. You get the picture?

This is what I'm talking about though. The true nature of that 'in some cultures' comment is only apparant once you know the specifics. I know what female circumcision entails, I remember vividly when I first heard about it and was shocked that such a thing is allowed to happen. The issue I have is that it's no good pointing the finger, when religious practices all over the world do the same thing. There are varying degree's of severity of course, but I firmly believe that all religious practices like that should be put to a stop. You know, I got my umbilical cord cut when I was a kid, and I'm glad, because life might not be so peachy if I had a gnarly black cord instead of a bellybutton. I don't know what it would be like to have a gnarly black belly cord, so not having one doesn't upset me. I can't know how you feel about being circumcised, and you can't know how I feel about not being circumcised. I guess I just think that all mutilations or modifications should be a matter of personal choice, a baby has no rights, or no voice to say that they'd rather no have any kind of surgery at this early stage. Might it be that, if your parents asked you when you were old enough, if you fancied having your pecker sliced, few people would be willing to try that once they got attached to their peckers :D.

That stinger after the credits had me laughing much harder than I probably should have been!

Why can't devs ever get jigglebones right? (And yes, parts of a game character that have dynamic movement based on gravity and other unscripted factors are referred to as jigglebones! Look it up!)

wildpeaks:

Well it's supposed to simulate invisible hands moving them, that's why they move more than "naturally".

Oh shit. That explains everything. These girls have spent there entire life being groped by invisible monsters, and that why they all look dead inside. Oh god, the backstory for this game is just fucking horrifying.

I will be honest and say I don't normally, watch or enjoy these videos (nothing personal, just not my sense of humour) but do watch them when it is a topic that catches my eye. In this case it is the fact developers, especially Team Ninja, ruin their self image by not only including huge breasts but breasts that are breasts only by name but nothing else.

I know a few girls that have big boobs. Well two possibly three that would match up with the girls in the DoA roster, and none of them move in that sort of float-y about manner. It's shocking and the excuses are even worse. The annoying thing is the fighting elements are good but I can't bring myself to buy this game due to the fact that the developers seem more interested in tits than gameplay.

So Jim, I'm with you on this one. It's pathetic and if only Team Ninja would admit that. The artcile that comes to mind is that of the developer of the reboot of DMC who specifically said over the top boobs would be gone as they were focusing on gameplay. Now that is how it should be.

All I'm saying is, comparing male circumcision as it's practiced today with female circumcision is incorrect. I'm not saying it's right, but it's TOTALLY not the same thing, and it's dangerous to insist that it is. Circumsized penises have all of their functional bits still attached. I'm not saying a foreskin is absolutely nothing, but it's certainly not a clitoris.

now, I'm an atheist, my parents were christian, and I was cut because at the time, doctors thought that it was more sanitary. That has since been proven false, and I sympathize with people who feel somehow violated by it. I don't. My parents did what they thought was best. And if jewish people want to believe that their covenant with god requires their babies to be circumcized, I honestly don't have a problem with that. It's silly, from the outside, but I'm not going to tell them they're wrong and that they're torturing their baby and they're going to ruin his life, because really, I have so much more to worry about then even my own circumcision, let alone someone elses. And if their baby isn't circumcized, they basically wouldn't be allowed back into their church, which might seem great to you sitting on the outside, but to them, I imagine if the thought occurs to them, it's not a good one. And everyone they know (at least anyone close enough to even be a part of the proceedings), had it done to them, and they're fine.

Feel free to disagree, but trust me, most men don't concern themselves with it because it's basically nothing. Female Circumcision is not a joke.

Didn't get this Jimquisition. At all. Say, you prefer other body types than mentioned developers and do not agree with their vision on what is sexy? Great! GTFO. That's simply it! Don't like - don't play! There is no reason to whine about something made with the only purpose to show girls with head-sized boobs for specific contingent to fap for. You have the right to partake in this, not obligation, therefore do not go to other monastery with your personal code.

Did the boobs kill someone? You'd think so listening to Jim talk.

You think the breasts in Dead or Alive look ridiculous you should check out the ones in Sexy Beach Zero.  That game has breasts that have implanted anti-gravitational devices.

I've realized the error I made in talking about the fact the DoA girls look like kids. It's small wonder the fans keep defending that by saying, "Nuh uh, they don't have the bodies of children!" My argument rests on how they have porcelain kiddy faces, but I'm telling that to people who have never looked that far up the body of a DoA girl.

My mistake!

( . Y . )
In other words, DoA: Uncanny Valley the game, well, I'm certainly not gonna say it has no right to exist, and I'm not going to try and debate how sleazy it is. I'm also not going to try and judge people who get off on that, because everyone has their fetishes.

Instead, I'm gonna try to respond to Team Ninjer right here:

And where did you ask the question about boob size to your fans of the game, exactly? Because, unless you just walked up to random gamers on the street and asked about their opinions of DoA games, their opinions will be weighted. Heavily. Towards bigger breasts and more lifeless eyes.

Really, keep doing what you're doing, but don't act like the criticism of it is baseless. I'm all for the right to make sleazy games, as long as you don't try to sell them as high class adventure games.

It's sleazy, but, hey, we're on the same internet where people want to cum inside Rainbow Dash, so...

Mikodite:

supersupersuperguy:
I guess I'm a sexual deviant, then. Not that that's any surprise, really. In fact, I've known it for a long time. That may not be the way breasts work in real life, but I'm sure as hell going to enjoy them in all of their fake, fantastic, imagined, unreal glory. I'm not particularly fond of real women, anyway.

Still an entertaining episode, though. Jim, you're a funny guy, even if I don't share your views.

Are you a misogynist or gay? Or are you simply a teenage boy that has yet to have encountered a real woman in your life? Or think all women are raging feminazis?

I guess to each their own I suppose, though I should point out that nerd culture is perceived to be the final bastion for misogynists and other men that want nothing to do with women outside of a sexual context. DOA and such games get the attention that they do because they are reminders of that belief.

Though I wanted to bring up the simple point that while real breast don't do that, I suspect that many men wished they did. After all, porn and anything related to it are projections of what the creator (and in turn their fans) wish sex was like, so it isn't hard to believe that there are man that wished boobies were as they are depicted in DOA.

Thank you for confirming that.

I am neither misogynistic nor gay. Frankly, I'm just not physically attracted to real-life women, or men, for that matter. They're too... I dunno what. Real, I guess would be the right word. While my interactions with women have been limited, I've just never been interested. Maybe I will be in the future, but I dunno.

I made my original post in jest, anyway. I guess it didn't really work out that way. I would also appreciate if you wouldn't make such outlandish claims.

My mistake!

All anime characters have child-ish faces if they are not drawn intentionally to look older. Look at Ritsuko from NGE or, hell, Ray Mustang and Hawkeye from Fullmetal Alchemist! And, on contrary, take that Armstrong guy from FMA. He looks not child-ish just because he's drawn not in traditional anime face drawing technique.

DOA without the boobage is like Mortal Kombat without the blood.. and we know how that turned out.

Men like boobs (mostly) but the DoA jigglephysics push it straight into the uncanny valley.

Good episode Jim, love the mutant tumor and "tits don't act like that" part lol.

On a serious note, I don't think anyone who ever gotten laid, even if only once, is interested in those extremely unrealistic "breasts". I really don't get why team ninja seeks to sell sex with their games instead of depth and quality. If I wanted porn I'll get porn! It's not like it's that hard to get. Fuck! even the real thing don't cost much, if you tip well they'll even fake an orgasm for you.

I want to buy DoA 5 because I like the fighting style.

Huh-uh. And you buy Playboy for the articles, too? ;p

I mean it. I like the counter-system that they have. I played DoA3 to death, and put a fair few hours in to DoA4 before the endless wobbling put me off.

Agreed, it's an inevitable consequence if you are drawing in the anime-style due to the large eyes that the characters have. If you're drawing a character in their early twenties say, they can look almost ten years younger.

On topic: I don't oppose video game developers wanting to make unrealistic portrayals of women. I like it when dev's do make an effort to make realistic,relatable female characters but i believe that they have freedom of artistic expression and if they want to make big boobed bimbos then they have every right to do so.

DoA is one of those game franchises which flirts with porn, a form of art which seldom realistically portrays women, or men for that matter, due to how much humans fantasise about sex. It's hardly surprising therefore that the DoA girls are essentially sexually fantasised females. I don't oppose what the DoA dev's are doing here for the same reason i don't oppose people involved in the production of pornographic material.

His face is not childish because he is all that is MANLY.

Thankfully all the female characters in American comics and hero games don't have huge knockers and big asses and wear sexualised outfits. Otherwise, I'd feel really hypocritical for picking on Team Ninja.

Wow, the levels of ethnocentrism in this video and accompanying thread are so high it's almost scary. Criticize Team Ninja's aesthetic choice all you want, but telling people they are wrong for liking or wanting a form of fictional digital entertainment is stupid. And frankly I expect a better argument than that Mr. Sterling because DoA5 isn't porn that argument just doesn't work.

A better argument would've been; Why doesn't team ninja apply its hypersexualized aesthetics more evenly by giving male characters fan service swimsuit outfits too. But no one goes for that argument because everyone including you Mr. Sterling seem to distracted by the boobs.

Anyway during gameplay no one cares about the boobs, it's all about the fighting people that play this game know that those who don't just stare at cutscenes and see boobs and start moralizing in the corner of the internet.

If you want to see what they game looks like with people actually playing.

This stream shows DoA5 matches 24/7.

Time to cover this subject in more detail.

FGM actually comes in 4 different types (As defined by the WHO). Type 1-3 are all the brutal, barbaric permenant-damage involving procedures, involving cutting off increasingly large areas.

Type IV is a catch-all category for any other damage, including non-permenant damage. This amounts to, at its most minor, a pinprick to cause very minor blood loss. This is also extremely illegal anywhere outside the practicing countries.

In case you hadn't realized, this means that non-permanent damage to female genitals is punished more heavily than permanent damage to male genitals.

Japan, I know I've said some bad things before but... will you please hurry up with that whole robot thing? I've only got like 25 more years of potency so please hurry. And make them look like the one on the right please....

Am I weird? Hope my girlfriend doesn't read this....

I haven't even watched the video yet, but I would like to say I feel like the title could be reversed and still make just as much sense. "Monster Plastic and Boob Children."

Gordon Freemonty:
I live with two girls basically. My roommate and my girlfriend. This was on screen when they both came back from uni. I had my headphones in. You get the picture?

That was far less entertaining than I was hoping for :(

Oh well, at least it all makes sense now.

While not a major aspect to the video, I do think the pedophilia jab is something a lot of people throw indiscriminately at anything that comes from Japan. There's a lot you can complain about the proportions of the DOA character model, but it does fit a short adult woman frame -if they happen to have breasts like Hitomi Tanaka. The eyes and nose are a bit anime sized, but also look like that of an adult character in that style. In Japanese art there are several silhouettes and faces commonly repeated among all characters, who are distinguished by the style layered over that frame, unlike western art which often makes characters district based on the shape and proportions of their silhouette and face. So its very easy for me to look at these characters and say they are suppose to be adult women, not children. Since the two have very distinct and exaggerated body shapes. I just don't see how anyone could think these characters look like children, so the jab come across as another excuse to insult Japan's deviant culture. And neither Team Ninja nor Japan's deviant culture are so innocent you need to make such hyperbole to find cause to insult them.

Now as for the main topic, the jiggling breasts moving on their own. Well, its good to take in some history and remember before Team Ninja came along video game breasts were typically completely stiff bowling balls, so making them move at all was a huge improvement. Of course, you can take issue that Team Ninja has done nothing to improve the realistic motion of the DOA breasts since its inception, and glad I am that Jim would devote a whole episode to informing the public of this travesty, but that almost suggests Team Ninja has been putting more effort in recent years on game play and story than boobie graphics. Okay, not sure if they actually work out doing those other things well yet, but isn't that direction encouraging?

Can we all agree the next time we decide to rank on DOA series it will be about it's horrible fighting system that controls like a volleyball game? It feels shallow or pandering to people that hate shallowness to only bring up how a game looks.

Right, large breasts do exist in real life. But ask any woman with large breasts if they'd enjoy running and jumping without any support like a sports bra and they'll probably say no. I know women with large breasts and yeah, all that bouncing can be PAINFUL.

I guess that's the breaking point of realism for me--I just figure a "real" female fighter would strap those things down so they DON'T flop around during a match.

Yup, every girl I know with huge breasts has back problems, and tend not to get why people think they are so great. Personally, I think it's more appealing when women make the most of what they have. Anyway, we wouldn't want too much realism in fighting games, Ryu would have bad knees, Cammy-cameltoe would have thrush.

ZexionSephiroth:
And now I remember this one Gamer comic where someone depicted the situation as something like this...

DOA Girl 1: Ahh, my breasts! what are they doing?!
DOA Girl 2: THEY HAVE A MIND OF THEIR OWN!
*One of the girls Breasts tears off and flies into the air*
DOA Boob: I'm Free!
*DOA Boob continues into space*

...Now if only I knew where I saw that...

It was C+A+D.

Thanks for reminding me about this crappy webcomic still existing.

And on today's segment, prudish sexual chastisement about gratuitous video game boobs from an obese man playing with dolls and a fleshlight. Sounds legit.
