    I am usually the first to whine about SJW/forced diversity but this looks pretty good tbh.
    Who cares if they're females/whatever, they're wearing badass suits and seem to have some personality.

    They have to give it away because no one is going to buy it.

    I bet it's tied to that Bethesda app. Ugh.

    I don't even care about the personality of them, I just want the game to be more fun to play than TNC. People complain so much about the forced "message" or whatever of TNC and ignore that the game simply wasn't all the enjoyable of an experience. It could be the most SJW thing to ever SJW but if it was as fun and wild as TOB and TNO I'd have played the hell out of it anyway.

    I just hated the odd health and armor system in the game. Honestly, I didn't understand why I was so weak for the first half until I started to actually figure out they tied the physical condition of the character in the narrative to your abilities in the game. It was odd. Overall, it was still fun...but it def hindered by the decision.

    Yeah, that was one big problem. Enemies did a ton of damage, even on lower difficulties. Level design was all kinds of boring. Even the weapons didn't feel as fun to shoot. There was something that just felt off about the whole gameplay experience.

    I didn't find that game to be too SJW. I'm playing Assassin's Creed Odyssey and that is full blow SJW pandering. Ancient Greek female warriors, at least half a dozen gay characters within the first 12 hours. I didn't expect a history book, but they really aren't even trying to stick to the theme of ancient Greece.

    Hmm.. what are the prices these days of the RTX cards..

    The previous Wolfensteins' have all been pretty good, The New Order and The Old Blood were soo fun, and New Colossus wasn't bad either... The whole alternate timeline is really depressing though, so they need to let BJ pull a big win and somehow turn the tides in a major way. As far as the female chars go, I think it's fine if the story is done right. Make them fun and real without bashing it over my head, and it will be a great game.

    I don’t really think having female soldiers and a handful of gay people is “sjw pandering”. The AC games have always played fast and loose with the settings they use. Given that Odyssey has mythological beasts as part of the base game and has dlc dealing with Atlantis female soldiers and more openly gay people than you might expect to see in the era are pretty tame.

    I'm curious why this gets called a SJW game so often. Is having female main characters fighting nazis triggering for some people? I might need this one explained to me.

    Projection. The people that say they want politics kept out of video games are always the ones that bring it up first. Always.

    Then there are those with no particular conviction - they just latched onto a buzzword and, like a five year old that just learned the F word, look for any excuse to sputter it, often where it doesn't even fit and has no relevance.

    It really does get boring. A resolutely secure person doesn't even notice the supposed "SJW" bullshit. Play the game and have fun, FFS.

    This game is going to sell well. It is reasonably priced for a new AAA release because of its shorter length, and critically it has a true co-op mode. This is a badly underserved market segment. There are not many real co-op shooters that allow playing through the entire campaign.

    My household will almost certainly be buying two copies at launch.

    As far as I can tell, anything related to females at this point triggers that crowd and is labeled SJW material. Watch reruns of Star Trek: Voyager? No, that's SJW Trek, a woman can't be a captain. Want to eat at Wendy's? Nope, get bent, that's the SJW fast food chain. I'm eating at McDonald's. And so on and so on.

    Apparently some males just can't deal with the fact that the world doesn't revolve around them, nor does it need to. The gaming community is particularly toxic in this regard. 8 Chan / 4 Chan and the like have poisoned a segment of society.

    I admit some of the dialogue in the trailer was a cheesy to the point of making me cringe a bit. But I love coop games, so this game will likely be a win for me.

    And I agree, we need more coop games. I love good lengthy coop campaigns.

    It's quite simple really. The main theme of a game needs to be realistic for it to be entertaining, for most people anyway. Once you stray too far into fantasy you lose most people's interest. You can add a few elements of fantasy like cyborgs or mutants but teenagers, transgenders or a platoon of women would quickly be slaughtered by nazis IRL. When it comes to the capacity for war men are physically and emotionally advantaged to women. Its about natural selection, for 250K-1.6Ma our ancestral males were out hunting/defending, inventing weapons while women stayed near the cave, gathering essentials, raising kids. Of course there are always anomalies to the norm but overall women are more suited for empathy and outlook. Blame it on toxic masculinity if it makes you feel morally superior but its the way nature made us. It helped to ensure the best chance of survivability.

    Its game in a franchise that started with robot fucking Hitler. During the WWII era. Hitler. In a mech suit. During WWII. It is utter insanity to say that women fighting in a war is less realistic than Mecha Hitler. Let's also not ignore that Nazi's colonized both the moon and Mars in this new timeline.

    Yep, pretty much. Doesn't make sense to me whatsoever. I wonder if these same gamers won't play games like Tomb Raider because it features a female?

    first of all have you actually played any of the wolfenstein games? secondly if you have then wtf are you rambling about because there isn't a single thing in the entire series that is realistic, lol. that's the whole point of the series is to be an alternate reality and no playing RTCW:ET does not count as playing wolfenstein..

    as far as the rest of your rant it's about as far off as you could possibly get but responding to it would derail the crap out of this thread.

    Venus actually. Colonizing Mars would have been way easier. Venus is hell. Atmosphere primarily made up of CO2, and it rains sulfuric acid. Not to mention the average surface temperature of 860*F. Give Hitler some credit where credit is due. :D

    Minus the fact that a lot of soldiers are teenagers themselves? 18 or younger that lied to enlist in WWII. It's a very myopic POV on display right here. Sort of ignoring that "labels" don't quantify ability. Since pulling a trigger is gender neutral. It's a dismissive stance. We are also talking about a series that features a severed head being reattached to a body. So, anything kinda goes...does it not?

    I swear, I sometimes think people actively work themselves up to anger.

    Right, sorry. Never finished TNC, gave up after the Roswell mission so I only know of them colonizing another planet through reading/watch stuff on the rest of the plot.

    What ruined wolfenstein is the loud mouthed hollywood-ized characters and laughable level design..

    RTCW was the last great entry in the series. I just want to be a near silent, emotionless bj blaskowitz who slaughters evil nazis and occasionally a drunk one in a wine cellar.

    Nobody minded the hot leather wearing sten shooting babes in rtcw (short of how difficult they were to kill). They didnt have obnoxious hollywood dialogue attached to them.
