Pretty sure Sophia is a tranny, so it could have just been something stupid like not using his preferred pronouns.

https://puu.sh/BXJKo/c010200eb5.png -- Someone from NicheGamer had a meltdown and got fired (again)? GEE, I WONDER WHO IT COULD BE!
avatar
That was a fun midterm election. Unsurprisingly, Dems take back the house, and Republicans take back the Senate. Time for a gridlock!
avatar
I dunno. The ESRB website doesn't have any sort of description to go with it. I saw someone say they added even more steam to it though. You'd have to add a fuckton of steam in order drop it all the way down to an E though, imo. Also apparently the tit jiggle option is just hidden now. https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_conti...AJqWss6rkk It just seems like a confusing mess.
avatar
Did they add more censorship than just the steam? That seems like too large a difference.
avatar
Nekopara on Switch Rated M. Nekopara on PS4 Rated E. Jesus christ.
avatar
I'm gonna be honest though. I'm glad that the amount of Goblin Slayer porn has increased tenfold. There was very little before the anime hit. Now there is a nice steady flow being created daily. Goblin Slayer's girls are top tier material, so its much appreciated..
avatar
All thanks to people like Mother's Basement that sperged out about how "offensive" it was. They're the reason everyone went to go watch it. Most people seem to enjoy it on some level. The anime is taking a weird direction though. I think they're straight up flipping the order of two arcs.
avatar
it's okay
avatar
What can I say? Goblin Slayer's a pretty good show.
avatar
avatar
Yeah, I'm not gonna pre-order it. I'm gonna wait til after it launches and see if anything got censored.
avatar
Welp, the "Red Wave" is assured. Pewdiepie did a collaboration video with Ben Shapiro.
avatar
Yeah, definitely don't preorder
avatar
But even then, it's not worth the gamble.
avatar
Maybe.
avatar
I bet the bigger games will have more leniency
avatar
Man, I'm really nervous over Catherine: Full Body. I was really looking forward to it, but now with Sony's new regulations, I'm worried. This game will be a test as to what devs can get away with.
avatar
Some of today's happenings--- Blizzard announced a new Overwatch hero. Obviously all anyone cares about is the porn that is gonna be made of her. Blizzard also announced their next Diablo project they've been teasing. Its a mobile game. Someone literally asked during their Q&A panel at Blizzcon, "is this some kind of out of season April Fool's joke?" Rainbow Six Siege has censored some environmental wall decals and stuff. From what I saw they are basically too lazy to make separate versions of the game, so they just made it a "global" version cause China doesn't like skulls and someone else doesn't like the neon outline of a stripper or something. So I guess the only positive is that there will be more porn now.
avatar
The anime-hating NeoGAF moderator that got busted for CP possession is definitely real, even if he's not the reason NeoGAF exploded.
avatar
And what broke NeoGAF was EvilLore himself, and a #MeToo gun being directed at his head while he tripled down on both denying allegations and also not abdictating power over, resulting in his mods vacating the premises.
avatar
Mary Skelter isn't a rumor. At least for China, that is. It ended up breaking the game and screwing the trophy list.
avatar
Oh yeah, I don't remember his name though
avatar
No, Jason is just a retarded weasel. I'm talking about the guy that totally broke NeoGAF apart and what lead to the mentally deranged users to make ResetEra.
avatar
You mean Jason "Dragon's Crown sorceress is for lolicons" Schreier?
avatar
Wasn't there that NeoGAF guy that constantly sperged about how, "anime games are bad because anime characters are made for pedophiles" or some shit, and was the same sick fuck that was caught as an actual pedophile.
avatar
Those people are idiots. Censorship is a slippery slope
avatar
>People are just brushing it off as "pedo bait games" only
avatar
Think of how fucked that Kill la Kill game is gonna be. If they are covering girls in black bikinis and navals then Kill la Kill is screwed from the start.
avatar
Everything is potentially fucked with how inconsistent and abrupt their decisions are. "Senran Kagura can't have touching mechanic. Gotta censor that girls belly button with a beam of light. Nekopara can keep the touching mechanic, but remove the breast jiggle option. Chinese boards already cleared and released Mary Skelter 2? Take out the touching minigame in that immediately. I don't care if it fucks up your game and causes it to crash." People are just brushing it off as "pedo bait games" only, but if something like Catherine or Code Vein get hit then its undeniably everything having to do with sexy anime girls is the target.
avatar
Catherine is so fucked when it comes out
avatar
I did buy End of Eternity shortly before all this happened though, I hope it didn't fall victim to any censorship
avatar
Yeah I'm not buying any more new PS4 games until they do something about this
avatar
Sony even deleted Japanese comments that complained about the censorship. They really don't care right now. The only thing you can do is just buy uncensored games on another platform and not support the games that have censorship, if available. If an uncensored version is not available, either buy it used or don't buy it at all. Piracy is also an option if you have a PC or a hacked/modded console. That's really all you can do at this point.
avatar
Yeah, but it's only been niche titles like VNs (which are all-ages versions of H games anyway) and Senran Kagura. There's also a rumor that Mary Skelter 2 won't come to the west because of this shit, but again, it's niche games that are mostly getting hit by it. As long as it isn't the big AAA games getting hit by it, most people won't care and will just shrug it off. I think it'll take a lot longer than just 6 months for them to get their shit together. Hell, they may not fix their shit at all, who knows at this point. Sony's notorious for being arrogant and stubborn throughout their history, and they have the worst customer service out of the 4 big game companies (Sony, Nintendo, Microsoft, and Valve) too.
avatar
This type of shit is probably gonna persist for at least the next 6 months or so. Even if people don't switch platforms right away they are gonna get tired of having to worry about the next game they want getting fucked with. Eventually some higher up is gonna notice this in the financial reports and start asking questions. Especially if they notice a hard drop from their Japanese market. I imagine the Japanese consumers are royally pissed off by this. I think this is like the 3rd or 4th Japanese game that's been censored by Sony within a week or two?
avatar
Yeah, I'm pretty black pilled on this situation with Sony. Normalfags won't do shit about it because they're just a bunch of useless NPCs. At least I play most of my games on PC anyway, but I fear Japanese devs will start censoring themselves to sell games on Sony platforms rather than put the effort to make two versions or just ditch Sony altogether.
avatar
I've seen people say that Soul Calibur VI is gonna get a patch that removes the boob jiggle for PS4. I think it's just people speculating based on current events, but if its true this'll finally be Sony hitting a big bear with their shit. They've mostly been hitting niche games that people, like the retards over on reddit, will just brush off as "they all look like underage characters to me. So this is good." If Ivy and Taki get hit with this dumb shit even those retards can't deny that Sony is doing some dumb shit. But they'll lie to themselves and claim Ivy looks underaged or some shit like everything else.
avatar
I sold my nightmare-vision glasses. I no longer need them ;_;
avatar
I don't really want to buy a Switch yet, but at this point I may have no choice
avatar
https://gematsu.com/2018/11/neko-para-vo...ases-steam Nekopara censored in Japan for PS4. They removed boob jiggle, but kept the touching mechanic? Doubt the US version will have the touching mechanic. Is it going so far that boob jiggle is now a no no for SONY?
avatar
Got rid of the bot spam, sorry.
avatar
Yep, really bad timing for them to begin a censorship spree. You can't expect people to defend your "free speech platform" when you don't stand up for free speech
avatar
and then they expected us to defend them when their turn for The Rope came
avatar
for the lolis
avatar
At first they came...
avatar
I don't like the precedent this sets, this would never happen to Facebook or Twitter. It's anti-competitive.
avatar
The assassination plot on that platform is complete bullshit, I don't disagree. But damn, talk about shitty timing.
avatar
Split their base right when they needed that base the most.
avatar
Gab cucked and still ended up getting banned
avatar
Still sucks unless they patch that bug
avatar
I guess Switch was the development platform and KT did a shit port to the rest
avatar
So about Warriors Orochi 4. Apparently the super tiddy bounce was tied to the framerate or something? Word is that if you lock the PC versions framerate to 30, like the Switch version, you'll get giant titty bounce again. So I guess that's all cleared up. Sony is still doing scumfuck shit considering that stuff about the "Sony Inquisition" hitting Japan directly, and Limited Run Games hitting a snag with Sony about their copy of Senran Kagura Bon Appetit happened today.
avatar
I would have taken the idea that "Code Vein got delayed because they have to change all the boob stuff." as a joke a couple months ago. With all the shit that's unfolded these past few weeks though it wouldn't exactly surprise me if there was some kind of truth to that idea.
avatar
Someone should be ready to compare Catherine to the PS3 version when it releases
avatar
So will that Kill la Kill game be getting axed as well by Sony's policy?
avatar
The winning move is not to play. Warriors Orochi stopped being worth it after 2.
avatar
Apparently there is still jiggle on the characters during the gameplay though. So I can't tell if they had it removed on the Camp menu specifically. That pale skinned character still jiggles like that on the camp menu too. I want to see an extended clip where it cycles through Lianishi's camp animation several times. Think its possible that the boob jiggle is just inconsistent?
avatar
It's hard to vote with your wallet if you don't even know what games are censored and to what degree
avatar
The worst kind of censorship is this ambiguous kind
avatar
Its an odd situation. From what I've seen Orochi 4 Switch = Big titty bounce. Xbox = Minor titty bounce. PS4 = Stiff as board. PC = no titty bounce so possibly ported PS4 version.
avatar
So Warriors Orochi 4 was possibly hit by the anti-fanservice Sony dick. Need more information before saying they did though. https://twitter.com/Globsch/status/1055921853968080896
avatar
Tom and Brittany both left XSEED. I know Tom said some worrying shit a while back but these were still the two biggest forces against censorship in the company so the whole of XSEED could very well be fucked now. RIP.
avatar
never thought i'd see the day when nintendo were less prudish than sony
avatar
This is next level of absurd. Its really unclear what else will be hit in the future if their censoring navel. Will the hot springs be removed in Code Vein? Will the PS4 version of Catherine get hit too? Already pissed that the Senran Kagura shit practically murdered Mary Skelter 2's chances for the West.
avatar
Apparently they decided it would be a brilliant idea to move the Playstation brand HQ to California. Then all this shit starts happening a couple of years later
avatar
What the fuck is going on with Sony?
avatar
ridiculous
avatar
https://twitter.com/uitachibana/status/1...17253?s=19 So now even Sony Japan is forcing Japanese devs to censor any lewd games that come to PS4 over there. It's not just the west that's getting fucked over now. They're even forcing them to cover up navels/belly buttons on girls. This shit's getting ridiculous now. We live in a timeline where lewd games are allowed on the fucking NINTENDO SWITCH and have uncensored PORN games on STEAM, but Sony, the dev that used to be known for making the 'weeb machine' consoles are cucking out the most. Holy shit.
avatar
I can't wait for Hollywood to milk My Hero Academia for all it's worth. inb4 Shounen Jump cinematic universe.
avatar
So Brandon's a cuck. In other news, water is wet.
avatar
depends on a lot of factors like where you live and what you do, but in the media certainly.
avatar
Hah, coming out as conservative is much more risky than coming out as gay in the US. I do think that laying out your political biases and explaining how they may influence your rating is far from a bad thing though (havem't read that review)
avatar
https://puu.sh/BPupZ/a53373c1c1.png -- lol, it only took 6 days since coming out as conservative (in the Life is Strange review) for Brandon to be bullied back into submission.
avatar
thx
avatar
Alrighty then, ctrl+shift+r if you're still seeing the old white icons
avatar
I keep forgetting to not include it in the update
avatar
Ahh, gotta revert forum icons again
avatar
Decided to upgrade myBB, wonder what broke this time.
avatar
It's why both sites were available for the VRV service.
