I don't know, the punk one and the Hair dye one are probably true. Honestly, Isn't Punk literally about rebellion? Oh, I see, you just DRESS punk... so she's... a liar?... And statistically, I'm pretty sure Asians (as a demographic, anyway) ARE the best at math...So...

I'm sure expressing what you think is pretty has nothing to do with drawing attention in some way...
The gamer one is the only one that makes no sense.

This isn't to bash Gears at all it's to praise how well Lara from Tomb Raider holds up considering that game came out in 2014 and these pics are from the base PS4.

Lara's model is certainly top notch. She's also pretty much the only character the game has to worry about most of the time. Gears has up to 4 or 5 MAIN characters to render during gameplay, no to mention all the enemy NPCs in large areas. Lara's encounters don't typically happen in large open spaces. And at half the framerate (on X, anyway)...

There are times in Tomb Raider when there are several characters on screen at once, the game also targets 60fps on PS4 as well, of course it has some dips here and there as do most game including gears.

Her model just looks really good, gears models during gameplay when some layers and effects are toned down or removed from the cut scenes just don't hold up anywhere near as well.

f*** China. f*** Blizzard.

It is disgusting to see companies roll over for China, especially since it is all about money and nothing else.

There was some drama in Rainbow Six Siege about removing certain things from a game because it offended the Chinese censors (shooting people is ok, but a neon outline of a woman is forbidden). They wanted to change everyone's game to make China happy. Needless to say, gamers were furious and eventually got all the changes removed.

You still see so much of it that goes unnoticed. People think in Dr Strange that the Ancient One was changed to a woman to promote feminism, but it was really that a Tibet Monk would never be allowed in China.
