The ‘guy in woman’s body’ idea isn’t really baseless though. I mean there’s no evidence for it, but there’s also no particular evidence I’m aware of against it. The Batou and Kusanagi discussion that hinted it was a possibility is of course where it all comes from, but it was more of a quick moment that left that as a seed in the watcher’s mind.

I think based on what has happened, her really being the consciousness of a man would almost detract from her character a bit, and yet I couldn’t explain why, so it doesn’t really matter unless they made it matter somehow.

    I am legitimately trying to understand if this game is merely tugging at the nostalgia strings or not. I’ve seen what little gameplay it has, which is to say none really. Are people that fascinated by the connection of the real life map to pokemon showing up? I have friends who have camped out overnight in parks for this already. Alone. Not with other friends, but other people doing the same but not really conversing with one another. The social element may need to be ironed out I guess, but I …

    That’s only it if you don’t consider why. Just because you’re ignorant of the reason doesn’t mean there isn’t one. And if you don’t know why, you’re just a slave to your own mind and body rather than its equal. I can now trace the origin of nearly every fetish I have and why it formed. I realized the only thing stopping me was I was afraid what it would mean about me, but in the end, it makes the fetishes that much better and I understand things better than I did before. I hear all the time …

  • Orc of Ambitia Ravaged by War:
    The opposite to that fetish on the same coin is essentially the idea of a sexually overpowered woman in a more conceptual way than a direct way. In the same way the dragon legends are representative of greed and corruption by claiming treasure and virgins, the orc fetish is about a mindless creature that is unapologetically instinctive in its lust. It is strangely common that for decades orcs have sort of secretly been aligned with the idea of impregnating human women to breed. Even years ago …

    The issue with open world is they significantly diminish any real plot or character development. Open world adds nothing to gameplay in and of itself if you have an area large enough to work with. The ideal is what best older RPGs managed to achieve which was the illusion of open-world with an actual relatively linear guidance.

    I laughed reeeeally hard at the picture for Battery being a guy holding up his fist. Not sure if that was intentional, but if it was, thank you. It was appreciated.
