Remember when Cracker Man made that comment about not needing sex to sell DmC?

He really didn't stick with that train of thought.

I think that when a game uses "sex" to sell, that's when you have an overly sexualized characters, who are made that way for no other reason but to attract male customers, kinda like Bayonetta.

In DmC however, the only sex scenes where in the opening, and that one served to show what kind of life Dante leads, and the other one was the Mundus/Lilith sex scene, and I believe we can agree that was a disservice to the customers.

So yeah, I don't believe that DmC used sex to sell.

According to Tameem, Kat with her low V and short shorts would qualify.

Having one side character being a little bit fanservicey doesn't make sex a selling point. Non of DmC trailers focused on Kat's look, and the game was never advertised as having a lot of sexual content...........unlike...you know......Bayonetta.

I missed something - is this another Tameem being stupid quote?

Bayonetta has fanservice, not sex. And either way, it only serves to show how she doesn't give a crap. She's a super powerful witch, what's taboo for her? Risque poses and being nude even though we can't see her nude anyway?

First, when we say "Sex" we mean sexualized characters, or things that appeal to the sexual desires within the customer. Second, are you trying to say that Bayonetta wasn't dependent on it's overly sexualized main character to sell ? Have you seen any of the trailers released before the game's launch ?

Being a strong woman =/= getting naked and flirting with anything that moves (if you can call what Bayonetta was doing flirting). There are a lot of strong male characters in fiction, and a lot of them never needed to strip and pole dance in the middle of a battle just so that people know of their strength and independence.

I think you missed his original point. Bayonetta does a lot of those things because she's already an outcast, so what's the point in adhering to social standards when society doesn't want you in general.
