Ubisoft’s Shitty, Misogynistic Marketing for Blazing Angels 2

This is sketchy and gross.

Blazing Angels 2, an arcade WWII dogfighting/bombing game, is being marketed on the Ubisoft website with a 2D shoot-em-up where the longer you survive, the more you get to see a woman strip her clothing off. What the hell? I was actually considering buying the game because the demo was fun. Not anymore.

Now I just feel embarrassed for all my friends who work for Ubisoft…

And people wonder why there are so few females in the game industry…

Wow, for once you used more vitriol than I would have.

I’m more offended by the fact that it runs like ass, personally. I get about two frames a second.

I honestly can’t bring myself to be offended by these kind of things. If I got offended at stuff like this, I’d be offended at magazines, comic books, movies, TV shows, music, even toothpaste commercials.

Anyway, I think it was a bad choice, because it’s such a painfully obvious off-subject crutch that it seems to say that the game can’t survive on its own.

I guess there’s a reason the company name is pronounced similar to “boobysoft”.
