Asking For No More BioShock Porn Means We Get More BioShock Porn

Asking For No More BioShock Porn Means We Get More BioShock Porn

Last year, BioShock Infinite boss Ken Levine pleaded with the world to stop making Elizabeth porn. It didn't work.

Paste's Maddy Myers has the story today of Zone, who if you're not familiar with his stuff is an artist who, among other animation projects, makes porn games. Zone's most recently released a BioShock Infinite one called - wait for it - BioCock Intimate. The story isn't the fact he made it, though, but rather what he made.

I'm not going to tell you all to go out and play this. It's explicit, and NSFW and all that. So if all you're going to bring to this topic is the Paste article, some SFW screenshots and your own views on pornography, so be it.

But Zone's work is interesting, because it's technically impressive. A lot of work has gone into drawing and animating this. It also shows a genuine appreciation for the source material that goes way beyond standard porn parody limits, right down to some hilarious "tears" that open up into, well, places that aren't REM songs.

Zone has also spent a lot of time on the audio, which is again impressive, if not also a touch unsettling. Rather than using a voice actor, Zone has scraped and modified actual in-game audio

That kind of hard work doesn't go unnoticed; in addition to picking up a healthy online following, Zone's kick-arse animation skills led to work on fighting game Skullgirls an animator.

    Lol let me guess ZTV they do some weird yet amazing staff other then the fact its porn they well made games in that senses and yer its the internet you say not to do something is like saying DO IT DRAW HENTAI lol Rule34

    Eurrrgh, the linked article is one of the more objectionable things I've read in a while... that editor sure does have a hate-on for Levine.

    Recommendation: Just go to the article for the Zone demo link, not the actual article.

      Apart from completely missing the point of Ken's remark, her whole article reeks of Daddy issues, but I think this sentence sums up her view:
      I was thrilled to see her tell off Booker for his many mistakes at the end of Burial At Sea.
      Seemingly, Burial at Sea is just not completely immersive enough, until the opportunity to nag the protagonist is presented..

      Of course, if Ken Levine had publicly given the thumbs up for more Elizabeth porn, we'd see a slew of angry articles demonising him and his 'daughter', with tenuous assertions to incest and child porn.

    When I was studying journalism, a big part of all of our assessments was "reflection". We had to write a small reflective essay every week so we could challenge our own opinions, to ensure what we feel is based on fact, something in reality and not insecurity, bias or prejudice. I studied it as an elective, so i don't have all the answers but i do wonder if self-reflection is something practiced now by people who work as writers. Feminist viewpoints are necessary for progress but without reflection practiced by the writer, it comes off as arrogant when people start using what they "feel" as "fact". I mean if you remove the venom and hatred from the writer's words, Bioshock Infinite sounds like it has a really interesting father/daughter dynamic. Free of prejudice in any direction unless setting something from the perspective of someone who just simply isn't you - is prejudiced. If we use how we feel too much to define the world then you latch a boatload of fantasy prejudice onto anything. Furthermore, no one who isn't already trying is going to empathise because you've already built a barrier between yourself and the people you want to reach. Pretend like those who don't understand aren't stupid and use a more refined approach to to the issue. I genuinely feel that if writers of any kind would like people to listen, you respect your audience, at least try and pretend that everyone and not just yourself is actually capable of understanding the issue and then you may get some of that empathy you fail to employ yourself.

    I just don't understand why they react so harshly to any scrutiny of any kind. I want equality, interesting female characters and viewpoints but I don't want it to come from an unchallenged hand. I want fair discussion and less scathing attacks on things. I want to feel like intelligent support and scrutiny are treated the same. The defensiveness and anger over almost everything that could be interpreted a million ways is where I find they at times do more damage to their cause than good. Men and teenagers have already ruined their image, i'd hate the voice of reason to go the same way just because they were arrogant and self-righteous.

    Guy doesn't even have his facts straight, I remember reading about the Skullgirls porn game and how it apparently landed Zone a job working for the Skullgirls team, but upon further reading Zone admitted that they submitted an application just like anyone else would and that's what got them the job.

    She*, Zone's a girl.
