    I somehow remember the female barbarian having more clothes in Diablo III http://ve3dmedia.ign.com/images/06/71/67190_DiabloIIIFemaleBarbarianArtwork_orig.jpg, this looks more like Red Sonja?

    Pretty awesome … but I wish he’d stuck closer to the fem-barb in DIII. She was a lot sturdier than that.

    I like this, but I can’t help cringing that she’s wearing a short skirt and is basically framing her vag with the controller…

    Seems a little too sexified for me. Nothing like reinforcing that only sexy-girls are gamers, and that they have to wear short skirts and highlight their girl parts with the controller, seems contrary to the whole idea taking hold about girls that game.

    Agreeing with the comments. A young girl character doesn’t need a big chest and a short skirt.

    I don’t think she’s THAT sexualized. I think she looks like she’s wearing casual summer wear.
