Forums - Gaming Discussion - Ubisoft censoring nude statues in AC Origins Tour mode

Political correctness has reached a new low it seems. We can't even appreciate nude art now without someone complaining and asking Ubisoft to change it. Nude statues were featured in the main game, so I doubt Ubisoft would have censored them in the Tour mode unless somebody complained.

I don't know why they would even bother censoring art from those times. It doesn't even make sense. You can practically go to a museum and see nudity all around from centuries past.



                                       

Murdering is fine of course as the very title of this game clearly suggests but showing the human body in its most natural state, Ooooh please glorious censorship, protect our tiny little brains from such an unholy sight...

Stupid humans and their twisted logic, I would destroy this planet if I could but I can't... Also I have no back up planet to go to so yeah, I'm stuck here with all this nonsense.

I'm guessing Ubisoft is expecting Tour Mode to get used as an educational tool, which would easily explain this. Otherwise, this does sound disappointing though.

I'm not sure you're much better.

That seems to be the case. But in a way that makes it even worse, means that ESRB/PEGI/etc. won't give it a Teen/12 rating with the nude statues still in. How is nude art so bad that it would raise the rating of the game from Teen/12  to Mature/17? We might need to rethink our rating guidelines, nude art is perfectly acceptable in an educational game imo. It's not like kids won't have already been exposed to it at some point, if they've ever gone to an art museum. Heck, there's an Italian restaurant in my town with 2 nude female statues at the entrance, lol.

I couldn't be as bad as you all with your murdering wars and armies you are all proud of and laws that keep telling you what the elites allow you to do and fake freedoms and NSA that spy on everyone and religions that spill more blood than there is water in rivers and your preying upon the weak and your predatory capitalism and your dictatorial communism and your overproduction of food in some countries while others literally starve to death etc...

I couldn't be that bad even if I tried, I just don't think it's possible. I can be very cynical out of my disgust of humans and not very social in real life as a result, sure but I cannot possibly be as bad. Thinking that I could is really really scary.

Yeah, there's definitely a problem.



Censoring statues is a bit silly, and doing it using shells just makes it a hundred times worse.

So who is "you all" again? The description doesn't exactly fit me or other VGC users I think.

I'm just saying you're not doing too well as a person if your view of humanity is in its entirety limited to a gross generalization based on the worst people who have lived, because you're actively neglecting people just in general. Good people, who are the majority of the population... you know, probably the people you pass by everyday on the street or the people who raised you or something. Are they murderers too?
