STAMP: Shut Up About Yaoi by thundybear
This is not a group against yaoi/yuri, hentai, porn, fanservice, etc.!!! We would just like people to keep away from our characters.

:iconsamusplz::iconsaysplz: Hello there, this is a group that is all about standing against the sexual expliotation of female video game characters. The main point of this group is to show these heroines/etc. as they truly were meant to be shown. If you are tired of searching the name "Samus Aran" and getting a bunch of porn pictures instead of that armor clad warrior we all know and love, join this. Here is a brief idea of what this group's goal and rules are:


Group Mission:

Video example of what the group looks for (yes that's my account) : www.youtube.com/watch?v=aH22CB…

I have come to my final line when it comes to searching the name Samus Aran and all I get are porno pictures. Well I have started a resistance against it! Not just for Samus, but for all video game girls who are exploited for sexual pleasure. This group will be solely for pictures stating this message or simply showing a decent picture of Samus herself as she was meant to be. Basically if you wanna search Metroid or other females and you don't wanna sort through all the porn, come here ^^

Group Info

Let's face it guys, Samus Aran is an amazing character but people tend to focus on her sexuality rather than her amazing qualities. Let's stand up and show people just who Samus really is: a warrior who fights against wrong do-ers. So this group is about standing agaisnt that stereotype and showing art that is truly 100% Samus Aran. But why stop at Metroid alone? This group can also be for any female video game character from OC's to Nintendo to Konami and so forth. This isn't just a common interest, it's also a collection of any and all deviation of these heroines.

Your guys' negativity for this game is astounding, yeesh. Well it looks like new information has surfaced and we can now actually judge a bit better.

Federation Force is a legitimate Metroid game and is NOT a spinoff or some other game just using Metroid as a face. Federation Force takes place between Metroid II and Super Metroid as the game creator has confirmed. This is a game that will not feature Samus as the player character. This time you're a part of the GFMC and you're bouncing between three planets doing about ten missions on each. This sounds familiar to Hunters and Corruption. And the man making this game? Kensuke Tanabe. He had a hand in the making of the original Prime games and even had involvement in Prime Hunters, and this game was first concepted during the time Prime Hunters was in development. That makes this new game an older thought.

Blast Ball is likely a tutorial mode. Tanabe relates Blast Ball to a type of tutorial that should be more fun to deal with while learning the controls of the game. Federation Force uses the same controls as Metroid Prime and even seems to use a similar HUD which many of us are familiar with. The game itself should feel like a Prime game, which all things considered, makes sense given it's a part of the Metroid Prime universe. If you watched the trailer it seems the troopers have charge beams of their own. So it's indirectly like playing Samus yet you're not playing as her. Which brings us to the next point.

Tanabe has stated that Samus and metroids will be seen in Federation Force. When, where, why and how is not yet revealed. This should give you some ease of mind as there's your connection to the Metroid games. You may be helping Samus on her own mission or she may help you on yours! So fret not, she's in the game! My question is how we'll deal with metroids, but maybe it's more obvious than I think it is. Why? Well...

Federation Force allows you to choose your equipment. There's a mention that you can choose your equipment and in doing so you kind of make yourself like an RPG character. You can be a tank or a "healer" so to speak. That sounds incredibly fun considering the co-op play. It'll make you think about what you need and what role you'll play for your team!

Retro is NOT producing this. The game is being developed with Next Level Games which last worked on Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon. I can't say I've played Dark Moon, but it was a very highly praised game and I think NLG will do a good job with Federation Force. The teams that have worked on the Prime games have all drifted. The game director for the Prime games is actually working on an XBox One game currently. I look forward to seeing people pick up where Retro left off. Everything looks and feels like a Metroid game minus the Samus aspect. at least from what's been revealed. I have faith in this game and I will support the series in its current direction.

I know it sucks it's not the Metroid game we all wanted, but honestly? I'm not surprised. Other M was flawed (there's no denying it), but it got so much backlash it's crazy. Also this year's E3 reaction might be why we're not getting a Metroid we want right now. Mr. Iwata had to personally apologize on Twitter for Nintendo because of the backlash the fans gave Nintendo after their E3 direct. That... broke my heart. Nintendo is one of the most heartfelt companies and they take their fans' feedback where they can. That's more than can be said for others. It shouldn't have come to him having to apologize! People forget that Nintendo holds Nintendo Directs throughout the year and that the E3 one is... well, just a fancier Nintendo Direct. They release information as it becomes relevant and closer to completion. People hating on what was showed was unacceptable for that reason, and now we may pay the price for it.

Give Federation Force a chance. Show Nintendo a positive impact and maybe we'll get something more in the future. Good things come to those who wait! and all companies judge their next move on how successful something does. That's why I'm asking that people don't bash the new game and hate on it (especially right now) just because "It's not what I wanted". You guys should find the positives and hold onto them! :heart:

Not trying to start a war but at least in Samus's case, she's been sexuallized by Nintendo and is a "reward" for better gameplay. So seeing her in sexy drawings and positions is to be expected. She's like my waifu and i know she's super sexuallized but knowing her zero suit is essentially body paint makes me understand that she's drawn like that. So all in all if you don't want Samus to be anything other than herself, then revolting against her sexy appearance makes little sense since it is essentially her in the games.

In no Metroid game has Samus been sexualized. Many people argue the in Other M she was because she had heels and a beauty mark added. Her breasts are never obviously emphasized, she doesn't take part in sexual or lewd activities, and she does not wear provocative clothing. Again, people argue that her zero suit is sex clothing. As someone who has been in dancing class, leotards, which are skin tight suits, make movements and breathing a lot easier. Under armor exists for athletes as this reason. So the main arguments I see are that she has a beauty mark (many men and women have moles near their lips, I do), she wears heels or lifted shoes depending on the game (I don't see every pair of heels being called sexy), and that she wears a body suit (similar to athletically clothing). I do not believe that she is meant to be a sexual character. Beautiful and strong, but not sexual

Good, because I just had to make an against argument about how Samus is designed to be sexy. It gets tiresome at times, but I'm ever so glad to see supporters ^_^

You're too awesome.  :D

It's good to know I'm not the only one (well... except for my brothers).

I absolutely love to do redesigns/reimaginations.  Many times, I try to make characters look more modest, and more gritty, if they don't look that way already.

Not much of a Metroid guy, but I joined up because I'm pretty tired of seeing our heroines put in awful positions. Count me in!

THANK YOU!! Hug  I'm also sick of seeing intelligent conplex strong female characters being reduced to sexualized nitwits simply because of their gender.  It makes me so sick.. >.<  WE HAVE TO STOP THIS!!  Or at least put the word out and support Samus and the others for the wonderful heroes they are.
Metroid needs a SERIOUS reboot.
