    Back off my lady lumps

    Post by LunarFog on Mon Jan 14, 2013 11:30 am

    On my 4th run through of Anor Londo as a support phantom I got an awkward message from the host saying sorry for messing up a few times and that my character looks pretty. Like an awkward tween trying to get a date.

    As soon as you stop killing people it's like compliments start getting thrown at you.

    Lolnobutsrsly, is it going to be a normal thing getting messages like these?

    I'd just take it as a friendly compliment! :face:

    Honestly, I have not received messages of that sort from playing Dark Souls. Most players have been very respectful regarding my gender. Rude remarks are fairly common in games like Call of Duty, but the message you got seems very kind and not rude at all. Did you spend a lot of time in character creation?

    I got messaged like that as well.

    My phantom messaged me that my character looks nice and asked how to create a face and hair colour like that as well.
    I don't have a pic, but it's actually very plain looking.

    A looooooooong time ago, I got message saying that my character looks badass. I was wearing full Black Cleric + Dark Mask. The guy also asked where did I found that stuff, so I gave him a few directions.
    He told me he's on NG+ and totally missed Asylum and Ariamis. He was very suprised.

    You should do what I do, make mostly obese characters while screwing around in character creation to make faces that look like they belong to strange mutants or grown up baby mimes made of rubber.

    I've had people ask to see my face under my helm, I soon then afterwards get a message asking me to put it back on.

    At least they want me for my Sword and not my body!

    Character creation still cracks me up. Whoever green-lighted 'jovial Catarina' deserves an award.

    Sounds like he/she is just being nice. I often get compliments or questions asking what I was wearing, as well as give compliments to those who put extra effort in making a set that looks good or neat, or NEW. happy

    Hahah, I never equip the rusted ring for Blighttown - or ever, for that matter - out of sheer laziness. It's possible to survive Blighttown without it. winking

    While I was sunbroing in the Parish someone complimented my big nosed character. It's great that our work with the character creation is sometimes appreciated happy

    I never got a friends request from co-oping until I made a female toon. I dressed her up real purty-like and I got three friends request in a few hours.

    A lot of deprived hormonal nerds out there.

    I put in my XBL bio female gamer and deal with it, just to mess with people whilst playing my female Solaire.

    The amount of friend requests and just straight up sonnets I received was horrendously weird.

    I then invaded people with the same character and got the same results, I chain backstabbed on guy into the the ground and he sent me a message saying something like, you're purty and sent me a friend request. If I could take screenshots I'd show you but the whole situation was so hilarious.

    So yeah, sexism in games is a thing. And it's funny to see how many people will fall for a female toon plus female in my bio ugh, Look Skyward some people are so stupid. Or maybe love is blind and that crap.

    I'm not sure its guys hitting on them, I think its just something as old as time itself. Opposites attract, in a place full of mostly guys it stands to reason one would want to befriend a girl gamer for once. Using it to hook up however....that would be weird :S

    It's not love, it's an unhealthy obsession with the gamer girl phenomena, wishing they could have a gamer Megan Fox without having to put much effort, someone who will blow them and make them sandwiches and be cool with all their time sunken into gaming.

    Yuck going through this thread brought up memories of gender confusion with my name early in Dark Souls. What's with some guy gamers hitting on girls gamers? Is there such a wide gender gap that this exist? I find it sickening that some people would try this! I need to ask does my name sound like a woman's?

    You see I have girl gamers at my school, I, nor do my friends, treat them like Gods, because frankly if we meet in Dark Souls, we're not going to hook up and have freaky internet skoodilypooping times, we're going to kill each other, brutally. Like statistically 50% of the gaming community is currently female (search it up I did a speech on gaming for my english and it's true, check it) plus this chick you meet over Xbox live is not going to drive to your house so you can do the freak. It's absurd.

    Agreed. The population of female gamers is growing significantly, I think the demographic might be closer to 60% if you count casual gaming(which is recognised as a form of video gaming). These aren't mystical beasts or goddesses willing to submit to your sexual desires without much effort on your part, they're human beings trying to enjoy the same game you are.

    You pose very well thought out points. If statistically that it true about gamergirls, perhaps they just have a harder time making friedns, so we see less of them. Or perhaps they just like completely different things. And on the subject of Gamegirls, its a psychological thing. In a place where mostly all we see is guys, its in guys nature to want to befriend a girl and help her, even if she doesn't need it, I don't speak for all guys but a lot of guys are nice like that. And your also true about the freaky, some guys over internet are weird like that, but most if not all girls know better than to hook up over an xbox winking
