Boycott the Huntress


Recommended Posts

First, I like Dungeon Defenders a lot. In fact, I like it so much, I bought two copies so that I could play it with my wife and son.

Unfortunately, there is one glaring problem that I find with the game: the Huntress.

I find the Huntress character disturbing. At best, the developer's depiction of "youngling" girl in a fantasy world is juvenile and irresponsible at best. As if the accentuated cleavage, and the exposed butt crack aren't in your face enough, when you select her character, the animation starts with wiggling her rear end at you in a manner that seems very "adult".

I hope I can assume that it was not Trendy Entertainment's intention, but it looks like someone was trying to fulfill some pedophelia fantasy. It is bad enough that artitsts do this to adult characters, but turning a child (boy or girl) into some kind of jailbait sex object is going way over the line.

Trendy Entertainment, I respectfully request that you fix the huntress. Make her clothes less revealing and more appropriate for her age. Remove animations that are innapropriate (such as the aformentioned tail wagging).

Fellow gamers, if you, like me, are tired of developers turning women (kids or adults) into sex objects, please boycott the Huntress until Trendy does something about it.
- Stop playing the Huntress character.
- Add "boycott Huntress" or something similar to your hosted game titles.
- Respectfully ask users who join your game as a huntress to change their class or leave.

Until Trendy Entertainment fixes the Huntress and stops creating characters who look and act like they are trying to feed child molesters' fantasies, I will be boycotting the Huntress. Please do the same.

Oh my devil another one of these.

Listen. They are just pixels. On a screen. It's not a real character.

And even so, your argument is absurd. So, what, a character is not allowed to do something because some sick **** somewhere might be aroused by it?

You realize there are people who have a fetish for cartoon horses, right?

Using that logic, every single cartoon horse should be outlawed, right?

I have to ask... Are you seriously turned on by this character? Oddly enough I've not had one sexual thought when seeing a huntress. Nor have I heard of anyone else, until this raging post comes along. For that matter maybe we should boycott the squire, hes not wearing pants and clearly a raging sex addict.

I think these "problems" can be found everywhere if we look hard enough. In short, its a game, its pixels, theres nothing overtly sexual beyond how far your mind seems to take it. And if it bothers you so much you should take the view point that others have. Its an elf, and it could be 100+ years old. Problem solved, or are we saying young looking 100 year olds can't have sex?... ;)

I agree to an extent. It was actually a huge turn-off because I like the huntress's playstyle more than the others. Eventually I just stopped noticing her and just focused on the gameplay. Maybe they will change something when they add multiple character genders...

IIRC The devs have stated previously that the huntress is actually about 40 years old or so. She's an elf and ages differently than humans, as others have said

Sorry Jabberwocky. Nobody can possibly take this seriously. If you were really bothered you would boycott the game. Not the one character class. The Squire is also displayed in boxers. The fact that you only take issue with the huntress is sexist and offensive. People should boycott your thread. If you are trolling.. I give you a 7/10.

Oh man, you're right! The squire not wearing pants must mean he's a child molester!* We must remove him from the game!

And the apprentice clearly uses magic! Magic is the power of Satan! We must remove the apprentice before he corrupts our youth!

*I heard you like child molesters so I put a child molester in your child molester so you can child molest while you child molest.

I made a post about this yesterday and a moderator closed it : (
He did however mention that the Huntress is an elf and supposedly 40 years old. So instead of being jail bait she is a cougar? Is she the kids baby sitter? Why is a 40 year old hanging out with kids?

Is it also a little funny that he named his account after a creature from a book where a little girl is drugged and attacked repeatedly? >_> Funny coincidences...

I can certainly see where you're coming from; however, I get the impression that the intent was to show off a playful (possibly mischievous) personality rather than, y'know, jailbait. Another example of this is in the Steam preorder trailer, she's the one who gets up when they're bored and gets them kidnapping TF2 characters. I feel like if they were going for sex appeal, it'd be closer to, say, Dead or Alive's female characters.

That being said, switching her over to the Witch costume from the Halloween DLC will make her look a lot more appropriate, though obviously this won't change other players' costumes.

Do consider, though, that DD is rated E10+ by the ESRB, so some discretion is already advised with younger children. Not sure if your concern was primarily because you were playing with your son or not.

BOYCOTT SQUIRE

Young lads should not be parading around Etheria in their underpants! This is an outrage! The proper dress code for young lads must be followed! Pants are to be worn from the waist with a belt! Pants are not optional!

This ^ could have ended the discussion right there. If OP has a child 8 years old playing this game, he was already pre-warned. It's no different then buying an M rated game and complaining that the content isn't safe enough for your 14 year old. If OP's child is above the age of 10, then...

idk, might be best to just cut all connections from the outside world just to be sure nothing gets in?
