Real talk, I would be way more interested in this game if you played as Ahsoka.
I cannot even begin to describe how happy it'd make me to finally, finally see a canonically gay male character in the lead role of a 'AAA' video game but it feels like we're still a decade or more away from that. If gamer boys can't even handle a woman, a gay male would send them all supernova.
I disagree. I mean, the designs aren’t wild and outlandish, but I don't think that is a necessary criteria to being a "good" alien. I kind of like the idea that humanoid species around the universe all ended up being the ones to advance far enough to be able to travel in space.
I remember one old thread where an individual was complaining about how they couldn't connect to the protagonist of Cosmic Star Heroine because she was female, but apparently didn't have any issues with the developers previous game where you play as
Why would it mess with her spotlight anymore than Kyle Katarn messed with Luke's or Anakin's? There can be more than one. This isn't Highlander
I'm going to have to look that up. I remember the reaction being one of extreme excitement among my circle of friends (mostly white, asian, hispanic American teens). After Vice City, we were pumped to see a GTA inspired by movies like Boyz N the Hood.
So why do you think having more would take the spotlight away from Rey? That was my entire point. Rey won't suddenly be minimized, because she's the lead of the new Episodes. No game protagonist is going to change that
In that case maybe it's better they didn't waste a female/POC protagonist on this, if the writer doesn't understand how character works.
"Many" is a stretch. They're just loud. And wrong.
If this is true (a link or more detailed breakdown would be good), then my interest in the game honestly just dropped several notches. On the one hand, there's room for a lot of opinions in writing like this, but on the other, I personally can't even begin to relate to that conclusion, and it happens to also be completely consistent with the reactionary talking points of MRA/alt-right slime out there.
Rey right now is the last jedi to the known galaxy.
Battlefront 2 has a female protagonist.Regarding the Rey comment, I sort of have a feeling it may be an edict "from above" at Disney or LucasFilm as to not steal any thunder from Disney's primo cash cow trilogy but Sig doesn't want to pass the buck.
Be that as it may, I don't agree with Sig personally and would welcome any non-human SW race. I really think he's off the mark with aliens. Heck, even a droid, though in this franchise droids get marginalized since they can't be Force users and are typically relegated to supporting cast. Someday, our robotic friends, someday...
They allowed a female protagonist in Rogue One. They allowed one in Battlefront 2. I don't understand why another one would be stealing Rey's thunder all of a sudden
I guess neither are jedi? But I don't know why there should only be one woman human jedi either
