VideoGamer: "Killer Is Dead is a stylish brawler, but its 'Mondo Girls' missions are extraordinarily tasteless."
Again that horribly outrageous gigolo thing ? Don't watch any of Saints Row 4 trailers then, you'd choke with indignation. Seriously, this is your first Suda 51 game ? Well guess, what ? This is not Animal Crossing. Catherine (other controversial game) featured a living butt chasing you, and it was an awesome game. Move on and play something else if you're too prude for this kind of thing.
But, but, but... exploitation.
Agreed. This game is tame compared to others. As Brucis said, Dragon's Crown has already gotten a lot of flak (thanks to Kotaku's idiotic click-baiting, mostly). I have a feeling that Rockstar will find a way to make GTA5 this year's most controversial title. They ALWAYS find a way.
Ahhh...the living butt. Catherine was awesome! Atlus sure knows how to shock. Remember Mara the Penis monster (his name is literally "Penis" in Japanese), who is in every single SMT and Persona game? Lol. Rockstar, Atlus, Volition...THOSE guys knew how to make controversial games. No, like you said--it's definitely NOT Animal Crossing (AC is good too though, but is pretty clean-cut). People don't mind an M-rated game if the only problem is violence. But when sex, homosexuality, mental illness, etc get thrown into the mix, THEN they get mad. Hypocrites.
that's the problem with western journalists and media in general, they always like to nitpick Japanese games and complain about sexism, gender and violence BS in games freaking GAMES... but western games like Saints Row, Mortal Kombat, Manhunt, GTA, GoW, The Witcher and many other gets free pass..biased idiots
I'd say that title goes to dragon's Crown. There was a huge fuss over that game, specifically the Sorceress.
Nah it was just whiners trying to justify their existence. Besides that, there was no controversy.
Controversial?.. No. There are far worse games out worth mentioning that could be classified as debatable.
Article reeks of white knight. Only problem is that there are no princesses to rescue.
I really can't wait to play this game next month can't come fast enough!
