Even Female Robots Can’t Escape Sexism

Sex sells, and apparently SEGA thinks that even sexy robots will help make a hit. The latest edition in their long-running robot fighting game series, Virtual On Force for the XBOX360, will have a “fetish unlock code” for customers who pre-order the game (releasing this December). The code will allow you to change the chest size of the two “female” robot fighters, Fei-Yen and Angelan.  This isn’t the worst example of sexism in games I’ve come across, and I’ve long admired the mecha designs from this particular series, but well… words escape me.
