That boob armor plate is really bad.
Tekken 7 is in an incredible place right now. It's just a highly technical game.
I'm sure you can find one-off examples of anything if you look hard enough.Before I say what I say, I wanna emphasize that personally I think boob plate looks stupid, and some camera shots make it less likely that following applies, but still, gonna play devil's advocate.
Idea of armor emphasizing gendered characteristic is actually totally in line with history. It's just we barely had female knights, so nobody bothered to make them custom armor.
But, not only armor for dudes sometimes had pointless cod pieces purely as means of showing off "I got big dick" as it had no practical purpose whatsoever, probably most famous type of plate armor with thin waist is actually quite literally a sexy armor for dudes. It comes from times where it was considered sexy af for guys to have thin waists, so they had similar designs even on their every day clothes. And yes, it actually deflected more force towards the waist, other than away, thus sacrificing some of practicality for the sake of making girls turn heads when that knight rode through the town.
If anything this is reducing sales since the people who liked Hilde before liked her because she's not sexualized lmao
Absolutely. I have had problems with this Soul Calibur game since day one. They could have maybe roped me in with Hilde. But not this version. Fuck that.
