So apparently Vette has made the news (if you consider the Daily Mail news, that is). Today they ran a story about the outrage of SWTOR which allows players to ‘own’ and torment female slaves with electric shock collars. Bold subheadings declare that the game has “scripted lines such as ‘obey my every command’ and options to beat and torture a female slave.
The article then adds that gamers “boast about how badly they treat her” but it hardly says one thing about the fact that you can choose to be nice to Vette. I, for one, took her collar off as soon as you proved herself by completing the task I gave her.
Anyway, the Daily Mail seems to want to make everyone think that the game is evil with this horrible plot to demean women and promote slavery. It’s hardly that bad at all. First, we are talking about Sith here… so of course there are going to be options for wrongdoings. The storyline will not be full of rainbows and butterflies.
What do you think? Are you bothered by the fact that SWTOR storyline includes the torture of Vette?
Read the article for yourself here and for extra lolz and /facepalms, read the comments, too.
