    here's the real problem with the change that you're completely missing:
    They were part of the original design as envisioned by the people who created the game. Going in and changing it is fundamentally altering the vision of the original developers. It is, at its core, political censorship to please a certain class of people.

    FNV would be gutted in a similar remaster, and Josh would probably cheer it on at this point. What a soulless husk of a former man.

    Bioware's a shambling corpse and I'm surprised EA haven't gunned them down yet like the rest of the studios they battered.

    I understand the point that you're trying to make , i just can't say that i see that's what is actually happening. I always saw people complaning about this scenes with Miranda more because it's counter productive towards her character, background and tone of the game than anything,so to me this is just the devs hearing feedback and acting on it

    Maybe it's matter perspective because i always thought the ass shots were a bit uncessary lmao.

    It's strange that say that because i literaly never saw anyone complain to Josh or devs to remove or censorship hookers, Caesar's legion ,etc. Actually people praise New Vegas having those elements. So i highly doubt that they would go out of their way to remove like that.

    It mostly flies under their radar, do you think it would continue to do so if it received a remaster and was actually being reviewed by people who currently work in the video game industry?
    It would be like having modern hollywood remaster Porky's, it would be completely butchered.

    If they want to fix Miranda they should add a scene where you push her and Jacob out the airlock.

    I'm surprised SJW's didn't got mad about Jacob.
    His quest in ME2 is about his dad leaving him and his mother alone. And in ME3 he is the ONLY romance option from ME1&2 that cheats on the player and gets some other (white) girl pregnant.

    Dad becoming a deranged cult leader was a cool idea but executed too timidly. It had no emotional impact. Not that any of the other ME quests do, mind you.

    I'm all for censoring these games if it means we can get rid of all the shit-tier PC-sexual NPCs in games. No more awful tranny NPCs, no more rainbow brigades shoving their agendas in my face, no more retarded fanfic identity politics narratives, no more saying hi and having random thots trying to jump on my dick. Just desexualize all of it and get back to heroic adventures and the like.

    But if that's not what they're pushing for, then they should probably just leave all of it alone.

    Miranda is like a twitch streamer. You only care about her body because she has no personality whatsoever.

    The most overwhelming feedback given to the developers of the Mass Effect trilogy was that they wanted a better ending. So overwhelming that they got butthurt and released a 4th ending as free DLC back in the day with passive aggressive content. By your logic, they should have worked on a proper ending before worrying about camera angles.

    Reminder that the "camera" isn't a real camera. The focus on the butt was intentional. Sawyer and company are just displaying the usual industry spite towards the people who like the stuff they make.

    He's a boring human, they were all trying to fuck Garrus.

    I bet that the concept art team gets to knock themselves out with the most sublime female designs, and then they are told to gradually uglify them before their work is submitted to modellers.

    I don't really care the ass shots are gone, those cheeks are Miranda's most redeeming quality but it was to be expected. The twitter types that are gloating about how gamers are mad would be the first ones to dogpile BioWare if stuff like that was left in the remasters and ruin their chance of gaining positive momentum in the game journo space. Now, the thing about the twitter crowd is that they'll never be wholly satisfied unless you're already part of the in-group, so it's honestly better to double down instead of kneel in all cases. But BioWare has thrown in their lot with that crowd since about the time I registered an account here.

    I'm quietly hoping the Jacob storyline will blow up in their faces though.

    ALL of the loyalty missions were about dads leaving or fucking up in one way or another. Miranda, Jacob, Grunt, Thane, Jack, Samara, Tali, even Mordin with his previous protege. The only ones that don't are the ones that came with the DLC.


    This is a very good take but I think you're giving the writers and directors of ME2 wayy too much credit. This is the same game that tried to justify the shooting mechanics and character creator in-game in the most stupid and lore breaking way possible.
    Then again ME2 was the one with the better cinematography out of the whole franchise, so you might be right.

    I'd say it's more a dissonance than anything. Her quest is all about how she's a strong, independent woman who was dealt a bad hand by being "designed as the perfect woman" by her father (yikes) and she trying to get away from that and be seen as her own person. All the while the camera is ogling her ass for our benefit. Which is it, game? That is not to say we as individuals consuming this media can't find her sexy or physically attractive, only that the game is telling us two different things about her.
