    I thought that was already out? There was a big wave of people on Youtube playing that stupid game a few weeks ago.

    You'd think someone with a last name that means "ruin it" (he's of italian descent, not hispanic) would pick a better stage name before starting a career in giving people advice on their love lives.

    If you're curious about my icon; it's an update of the early Lego Castle theme's "Black Falcons" faction.

    It's obviously just a better-looking retread of the original NES Seducer.

    The dude has exactly the kind of ego you'd expect from someone who unironically makes a game called Super Seducer.

    I've watched some streams of it, and although there are a number of occasionally funny meme responses that seem primarily to pander to Twitch stream chats, true to its name the "intended" path is about gaming women into further encounters primarily by choosing what responses they most want to hear, like a sleazy real life-focused version of a Bioware protagonist.

    I guess calling it "Sexual Predator: The Game" would've negatively impacted sales.

    Hey don’t disparage Predator aliens here AFAIK they have a culture of strictly consensual relationships and abhor pick up artists.

    If this was a gay (either way) pick-up simulator, SJW reviewers would love it.

    ''Thought-provoking''
    ''In sync with the current zeitgeist''
    ''Will challenge what you thought you knew about your own sexuality''

    But I understand why they can't get behind a straight white guy picking up chicks for sex. Too vanilla.

    Yeah, no, "SJW" will not love a game in which you approach random people on the street, attempt to make them touch your butt, and then lure them back to your skeevy sex den where you systematically calculate the best false persona to allow you to have sad, unfulfilling sex with them and then dump them on the doorstep like a sack of potatoes. Whether you're doing this to women, men, children, or dogs, it's going to be fairly upsetting.

    As an SJW who loves gay romance video games: Ha ha, nah Skyscraper. Turns out being a creeper translates regardless of your sexuality or gender presentation.

    This might come as a surprise to you, but gay guys dont like getting harassed by creeps any more than straight women do.

    It looks like... live action Booty Call, but unfunny.

    I can't believe I'm admitting to having played that; yes, it's an extremely misogynistic game that sends the wrong messages in case there's any doubt. However, it wears its intent on its sleeve: it's not intended to be taken seriously, I hope.

    This one is just... wrong. Cringe level 9,000.

    In hindsight, I should not have wished that on that monkey's paw.

    Read a few articles about the author. The level of cognitive dissonance he conveys is kind of astounding. :bigfrown:
    He's just completely unable to comprehend why his game is being accused of being 'skeevy' or 'rapey'. Yuck.

    (edit) Also: 'Dick' 'The Ruiner'. At least he's living up to his name.
