cut for triggery material! (sexual assault)
I totally agree. Big Boss is not a sexual person and he has had nothing but strong woman figures in his life that he has looked up to and admired so him taking part in any level of sexual assault just wouldn’t fit his character at all and if It should ever happen I would honestly be disgusted, not just by the act itself, but by how Kojima believed he had to tarnish such a amazing character to try and get him to that level of villain status, especially since he can reach that status easily in a variety of other ways (child soldiers anyone?).
That scene could be anything, but because of the horrid and honestly needless sexual assault that was messily handled in Ground Zeroes, I can understand why people are thinking that the scene is pointing towards that.
To me, I get a feeling of a lynch mob that wants blood, so the theory that it might be Huey makes sense to me.
Still, I won’t lie, with what we’ve seen Kojima do in Ground Zeroes, and the fact he wanted a scantily dressed attractive woman in this game, I am worried what he is going to be doing with her for the sake of what he feels is ‘dark and edgy’.

Welp! Just finished The Crown of the Sunken King DLC for Dark Souls 2!
If any of you care about my personal ramblings, you’d probably know to some extent my personal disappointment in Dark Souls 2. I won’t go into the details as to why it did since I’ve posted so many times why, needless to say I awaited the DLC with excitement since the last time FromSoftware did a DLC for a Souls game, it was epic as fuck!
So, when it came out I was even more disappointed than I originally thought I would be!
The disappointment started with the installation making it impossible to access my old save game. Don’t know why it did, but it just kept crashing my old character that I spent 80 odd hours building up. So off to a flying good start there!
So! After building up another character from scratch, I find my way to the place you access the DLC! And couldn’t help but laugh at how shoddy it was that they just slapped together some cruddy shrine in the back of the primal bonfire room!
However! Upon entering the awesome sunken city I was in awe of its design! Saying that, Souls games have always done that with me so that’s nothing new! Still, kudos at making another awesome place to explore!
Now, to the major disappointment, and funny enough, it’s the same reason as to why DS2 as a whole disappointed the crap out of me.
That’s right, the enemies. Again. So we’ve got our generic humanoid baddies that I can’t help but notice that most of them (if not all) are just rehashed enemies from the main game with their skin changed and maybe a new move thrown in.
The big T-Rex like monsters with all the teeth I thought was good before I realised they where dumbed down copies of the dragons out of the dragon aerie.
But then there is my main problem with the DLC, the bosses. From 3 to choose from I thought they would dazzle and impresses like they did with the Artorias of the Abyss DLC! With Artorias and Manus and Kalameet, but we got a reskin of the last boss; nashandra, a cheap ass battle of 3 against yourself with none other than bloody Havel (or someone wearing Havels armour) and 2 other NPC assholes that just make the fight irritating, not challenging, and finally the dragon!
The dragon itself wasn’t too bad, but I couldn’t help but notice that it used moves that Kalameet did, and now I come to mention it, it was around the same size and shape as Kalameet as well. I mean when I first saw the damn thing I thought it was Kalameet and they brought him back since he’s got a huge arrow sticking through him! But then there’s the lore that it was shot through his wing not his chest and he’s got one eye and was killed back then etc etc. so a ‘brand new’ dragon that has striking resemblances to the old boss Kalameet but made easy.
Overall, I hate to say it but I felt cheated out of my money with this DLC. I wanted something new and awe inspiring, and any awe I felt from the locations it was set in was very quickly cheapened at the sheer laziness and lack of originality in the recycling of enemies and bosses alike and in all, I feel a little insulted. I mean, FromSoftware! Guys! You made Demon’s Souls, and then Dark souls 1 and then that fucking awesome DLC Artorias of the Abyss! You made whole new enemies for it! The bloated head guys who jumped at you like vicious beasts, and scared the shit outta me in abyss with their red eyes peering out! The bloated head sorceresses! Completely new magic users! The monster in chains! Heck, even with the rehashed monsters, it made sense! It was in the past! The stone sentries and gardeners made sense and was good to see them before they decayed!
Then there was Artorias! Never had we fought a boss that was so ferocious, fast and agile! Then there was Manus! That terrifying, challenging boss of the abyss that we fought with the help of a young Sif! Then for the ultimate challenge, Kalameet! Never seen anything like that bastard before in the game!
But now…you bring out this as a DLC? Guys, your better than this.
I hope the next DLC is better I really do, and I hope the collecting of these crowns actually amounts to something.

What the hell happened to Quiet!? Did they seriously have trouble modelling her!? Her chest is massive whilst her hips are non existent and her legs are like wet spaghetti!
And that ghostly, floating thong…it’s weird! Did they just spend so much time making big beefy hot guys that they completely forgot how anatomy works or something?
At least the big boss, skullface and not-volgin look awesome!I just think the least they could do was give her a awesome figure. I mean the whole reason she exists was because it was a sausage-fest and Kojima wanted a scantily dressed girl to sell merch! Come on she deserves better!
