WHAT ARE YOU THINKING ABOUT RIGHT NOW?

Posts

maybe they thought it was silly, or maybe they had a change of heart with regards to their character design focus, or maybe they didn't want to alienate parts of their audience after being made aware of how some groups perceive their games, or maybe a devious goblin wrote the CEO a strongly-worded letter specifically asking them to remove it and they decided to go along with it.

all of these things are okay. they are normal for games.

literally the only reason anyone finds this case notable is that the biggest antiprogressive muckrakers at the moment also happen to be desperately horny
Well, I would say Liberty, I agree with that. I didn't think about looking it at that way. It is the developer's choice, and all fault lies on them.
yes, they will pay for taking a half-second of titillation out of this game which people are already making HD porn of

Here's a third opinion for you guys. I thought the butt slapping was crass and I'm glad it's toned down, but I wish they'd actually remove it, and possibly even remove or redesign the entire character. I'm not offended by it or anything like that, I just think she's gross and ugly and spandexy, and I don't see why anyone would actually want that in their game.

It's like when your aunt tries to be sexy. Just. Please stop.



Might find this surprising. I didn't like that character either. Badly designed, etc.
anyway Kaliesto the next time we're talking about something else and you feel like dragging me in to hear my Hot Take on some gamer issue: please don't

I'm a pretty tough guy and love cats. I take care of about 12 of them including more that I don't actively watch over but feed them when they are around.
It's great, I try to find them homes or take strays to no kill shelters. In the meantime I just bathe in kittens and cats

Honestly, different strokes for different folks. Some of us might like that kind of dealio. Let them have their sexy babe too. I mean everyone else gets to see their scantily clad big-boobed goddesses of... sport? doing whatever they do, so...

I figure if the devs want to remove or tone something down in a game, even if it is from outside influence, it's up to them. I won't mind too much either way unless it really doesn't fit the character in question or game. Butt slapping in a fighting/sporting game? Fits well enough. Reminds me of Bart Simpson more than anything, really, but hey, sure.



...still want that booty-slapping Rosa. That shit would be funny. HEY GOLBEZ! THIS BOOTY WALKIN ON OUTTA HERE, AND YOU CAN'T STOP IT~ :slappin da booty:
I fell in love with that recent article about Tanuki dogs, incredibly adorable.

Edit:
I didn't realize Japan actually had a female wrestling division. Learned something new today. I think the character is based on female Japanese wrestling considering the character is from Japan.

Golbez strikes me as a curmudgeon though. I imagine that as she did so he would just be sitting at a table with coffee and a newspaper doing crossword puzzles. Glasses perched clumsily on his helm.

"She'll be back." he reassures himself.

Here is the problem with that:
http://nichegamer.com/2016/01/due-to-outside-criticism-capcom-censored-street-fighter-v-to-avoid-offending-people/

Even the posters in that article pointed the hypocrisy, and also considering the aimed demographics that this seems incredibly silly. They won this victory, but what is to stop them now since they managed to censor this one. Will they move on to the character Poison next? How about the Central American character due to her attire?

Will this game just keep getting censored to the point to satisfy everyone? To me this is petty.

I don't see how I'm wrong when Capcom admitted it. I mean what is to stop them now knowing they could go after anything, nevermind what Capcom did.

I don't like precedents. I find precedents dangerous sometimes.

Remember that time I said this?

Can we make a logical leap and shut some things down without fearing shutting everything down? There are some things this world is better off without.

It still applies. Jesus Christ.

self-respect as a person or group

What even is this? If this is a branch-off of gamers taking the label "gamers" seriously, that's one thing, but we're talking about game devs changing things to fit what is marketable. Moving the POV a few degrees more horizontal doesn't somehow blow a hole in their worth as a person.

Who says I haven't already taken up the way of the sword?

7:30 sound good?
I understand if it has to be marketable, but isn't the state of mainstream gaming today gotten dull because of that? To be fair though there were companies that took chances with games like Mass Effect, and Metro that experimented (Ubisoft is sort of trying to mix things up with Assassin's Creed which is good). I think game companies need to branch out like they did back in the day, but not settle for safe mediocrity unless there is a very good reason.

Idk, I might be being unfair considering the economy with the way it is now. I also wonder sometimes if when a company gets too big that it becomes a little unstable to manage, and why I'm slowly accepting the idea of digital gaming if it means they can get back to their golden days.

I took up the sword long ago and trained for many years, but then I saw a dead squirrel, poisoned by festive candy, and it moved me. It reminded me of how fickle our own lives; that one might die pursuing life. It was by this that I laid down my sword, never to rise again.

Now I simply create.
Guys, chill. There's no need to jump all over each others' throats over a difference of opinion about someone slapping a butt. F'srs.

Also, I almost typed your name as Corgi for some reason, Corf. Then I changed it and forgot what I was going to say to you because I was too busy laughing at the idea of corgis and corfs and...don't judge me. orz

I was probably gonna say something like 'dude chill' except with a lot more words. eh, doesn't matter now. the corgi thing does though, which is why I mentioned it at all.

Corfi. Lots of corfi corgis :D
