'Mute All' got patched in shortly after release, and you most definitely can mute anyone who has a mic connected regardless of whether they're talking or not.

Dear Fatties and Neckbeards,
Just forget the inside leg measurements and netcode and go play this badass piece of really dumb but really great SP fun.
Good solid advice.
dayshours. Are you seriously calling any woman who rolls their eyes at ridiculous male-gaze proportions "shallow?" Fuck you. I'm not even going to dignify the rest of your post with a response, you've lost the plot so completely. Why don't you try actually talking to a woman -- you do know at least one, I presume -- about these things? And by talk, I mean shut up and listen, instead of telling her how she should feel or saying she's shallow or ~oversensitive~ if she doesn't really appreciate the stupid proportions and other issues in the artwork.
Conversation over. Come back when you've done what I've suggested.
Yes, that's exactly what happened here.
Then why not actually make the effort to address some of the things I actually raised?
For example, why do you assume all women automatically must care deeply about 'tit size as depicted in a work of fiction'? And why is anyone who does not assume that apparently a massive overbearing misogynist?
Or why not address the fact that they're fucking combat NUNS, ffs? That one could be fun.
Seriously though, if every woman you've ever met has gone "OMG BECKY, LOOK AT THEM TITTIES!" *huffs off in disgust*, then you have met an incredibly small subset of the entire female population of this planet.
I mean, the whole IM RITE AND UR RONG/NO U/FUCK U IM OUTTA HERE thing is your bag, I know, but would it hurt to actually make an effort once in a while? I'm open to reasonable discussion. I mean, say..provide an example beyond "this giant armoured woman has giant armoured tits, therefore the entire fucking enterprise is unremittingly sexist (in my opinion)". That'd be a good start.
There's still plenty of room in the sexism thread.
That's Space Marine done with.
Fantastic romp overall. Solid gameplay, though with a few difficulty spikes here and there. I played on Normal and the only place I ended up having to replay 5+ times was the final bossfight which was a bit on the hard side, but suitably epic and fun anyway.
Think I've caught a bit of the ol' space-bug. Gonna have to try out that Tribes Ascent thingy next. You fatties and neckbeards can keep on arguing over the size of plastic figurine boobs or whatever, I'm outta here!
Yeah, I was pretty satisfied with the game too. It's unfortunate that the multiplayer component was effectively hamstrung by lag and balance issues, or I imagine it could have been pretty successful. Any word of a possible sequel?
Unless Jason Rubin reverses the decision made by previous management, a sequel ain't happening.
Space Marine was a fun, one time play through, but I pretty much uninstalled it afterward. The setting was pretty well done, but the actual game play was kind of sparse. I remember looking at the 'combos' display and thinking "WTF is the point of this? It's hit A, 1 to 3 times, then hit B. That's it".
Came with a free copy of Darksiders as a pre-order bonus, which didn't help. Generally it's a bad idea to give a better game as a pre-order bonus. Space Marine only had it's combat and it's setting....and it's combat was kind of shallow.
Had they just slapped a Space Marine skin on War and a level pack on Darksiders and called it a day, might've improved the game a bit.
As for the rest of the discussion.....well, Torpedo Tits are the least of that world's sexism. It's got a literal god, who runs the empire with his literal sons. No daughters though. And the combat nuns only exist because the church wasn't allowed to have men fighting, else they'd have them instead.......no exactly women's lib here. But then, I suppose you get right down to it, that universe pretty much sucks for everybody in it, so why should women be any different?
This isn't relevant to the discussion. You keep doing this, going off on tangents, then you wonder why I ignore them. I ignore them because I'm not going to let you suck me into a red herring vortex.Or why not address the fact that they're fucking combat NUNS, ffs? That one could be fun.
THIS IS NOT WHAT I AM SAYING FFS. You're so completely off the mark and missing the point, I'm not sure what I could possibly say to get you on the same page here. Obviously not every woman I know is going to react that way (maybe one or two) but you're making so many huge assumptions -- about me, about women, about the women I hang out with, whatever. A lot of women don't care about the occasional eyecandy, true. But a lot do, so deal with it.Seriously though, if every woman you've ever met has gone "OMG BECKY, LOOK AT THEM TITTIES!" *huffs off in disgust*, then you have met an incredibly small subset of the entire female population of this planet.
God dammit you're doing it again. Your entire post is filled with nothing but cartoonish misinterpretations of what I'm actually saying -- this is why I stormed off because the reality is the opposite of what you said. You're not even trying to engage in reasonable discussion! You're accusing me of insisting that I'm right and not listening to others, when frankly all your posts are THAT'S NOT HOW WOMEN ARE I KNOW HOW THEY ARE YOU'RE WRONG, BTW IRRELEVANT SHIT ABOUT MINIATURES AND COMBAT NUNS. So you'll excuse me if I feel like trying to explain things to you is pointless.I mean, the whole IM RITE AND UR RONG/NO U/FUCK U IM OUTTA HERE thing is your bag, I know, but would it hurt to actually make an effort once in a while? I'm open to reasonable discussion. I mean, say..provide an example beyond "this giant armoured woman has giant armoured tits, therefore the entire fucking enterprise is unremittingly sexist (in my opinion)". That'd be a good start.
Dragged back in.
Read the Bible or something.
why specifically the bible
The only way I am aware of is to click on the little microphone icon that appears beside someone's name in the score list when they are talking. When they stop talking, the icon disappears, and clicking on the area does nothing.
@dethtoll, W40K design is meant to be sexist in same way it is xenophobic, and would You assume that man (i.e. me, a thin person) could be offended by sexist presentation of male humans. Isn't it funny that some clumsy nerds are not offended by Heman, Conan, all Marvel heroes but instead they applause to them?
well, I know quite a few women who would love to have big tits.
dethtoll ffs just give it a rest, this is exactly the kind of off tangent wankery that was being discussed about koki on facebook, not every thread is your soapbox to rant about your narrow-minded views.
Narrowminded? What the fuck?
Actually no, you know what, forget it, I don't want your rationale. Remember that long discussion on fb about portrayals of women? You didn't get it then and I have no hope that anything has changed in the interim.
Oh Jesus fucking Christ TTLG.
Look, I appreciate that gaming is a medium largely defined by men, for boys, about power trips and tits and using a big sword/gun/nuke to get the cute heroine to fall in love and fuck you until you die.
But fucking A. This is TTLG, and WH40K: Space Marine has much bigger problems then tits. Like the fact that the combo system is Button A 1 to 4 times then Button B. Like the fact that the plot is "KILL EVERYTHING. LOL, SUCKS TO BE YOU."
We're better then this.
Fafhrd.....I've gotten perfect freeflow 2.0 in Arkham City.
Do you actually want me to go into details? About avoidance moves? About the fact that you've got not 1, not 2, but 6 gadgets? Instant takedown counters? Weapon destruction counters? Stuns? Redirects? Multi-ground takedowns? Beat-downs? Aerial attacks?
Shall I go into button counts? Cause fucking batman doesn't need 2 like it was the NES days.
Are you just being an asshole for the sake of being an asshole? Or shall I go over all the details?
