There are times in which you have to write about a game you don’t like, and apparently someone at Official Nintendo Magazine really doesn’t like the upcoming Senran Kagura 2: Deep Crimson.
Wow , that guy from ONM is a good example of crappy journalism. It's good to see the guy from Xseed call him out.
The funny thing is that the producer isn't even a guy, it's a girl.
Well that explains it then..
I'll gladly buy that filth!
HA! *HIGH FIVES*
Proof that game journalism is something anyone can do. You only need to be someone rejected from proper news outlets.
Yeah, that ONM UK article is much trashier than the game they were trashing. Much more so because of the hypocrisy, hate, and nasty attitude of the writer. Kudos to Katsuu, a fine woman, standing up to weird, mentally ill writers who promote censorship. IMO it's hard to find "proper news outlets" these days though. The New York Times is considered by many to be a proper news outlet, but I read an article from them recently that read like it was written by a very average high school kid. One things for sure, I won't be buying any issues of ONMUK.
No, this is proof that anyone can do games journalism poorly.
Lovingly crafted jiggle physics have been a thing since Dead or Alive on XBox put the "jiggle age" cheat in. Those girls should have knocked themselves out with those things.
The "OMG" setting in DoA 5 is, strangely, far more natural than the "Natural" setting.
ONM's editors must not give a crap. The writer's views don't bother me (and that XSeed guy comes off as more than a bit petty himself) but it's astounding that "preview" was in a serious publication.
It's a chick, not a guy.
My mistake. Thanks for pointing that out. My point still stands, but that does put things in a different light...
Women who vocally oppose extreme feminism are few and in short supply...
The Forbiden Magna "preview" is just as bad: http://cdn4.dualshockers.co...
Now THIS is a good news story. Good read.
Swapping the word extreme with radical would work too.
Well the Official Nintendo Magazine staff are probably too used to reviewing all the shovelware crap that have been released on Nintendo consoles for the last 7 years that's aimed at kids, so reviewing a game high on fanservice is probably akin to a feminist being handed a copy of Playboy to review.
Awesome read. You know what? I wasn't going to buy SK: Shinovi Versus because of my tight budget for games, but f*ck that! I'm going to buy it now just because of how awesome Xseed is. They deserve my support. I respect Hatsuu for doing that.
Bubbles for your awesomeness.
"While game journalists are entitled to their opinions, maybe some should remember that it’s a good rule to treat the work of developers at the very least with a degree of rational respect." No one deserves respect for creating a "game" like this. "Let’s ignore the combat, the story, the new playable male character, the badass tag-team & equip system, improved/added bestiary, etc." Like saying porn stars are actresses. "Remember this, ladies: If you’re not fully clothed, you don’t have any character development. None! Don’t even bother trying to be a person." ROFL! Hey, women! The makers of this game are on YOUR side! I'm sure the feminists love these games...
Shush,now go away.
You know what's HILARIOUS about your response? How totally uninformed it is. There was a time when feminists expressed their feminism PRECISELY through nudity and flaunting their sexuality. Of course, contemporary feminism has changed all that, and emphasizes business. You might say that the corporate world has successfully infiltrated the feminist movement. But I digress. Feminism used to be about female CHOICE, and that included the choice to be a porn star, or to watch porn, or to dress provocatively, or to be sexually expressive, or to draw/paint sexual material, and so forth. Maybe there are even some women out there who might PLAY this game. *gasp!* The horror!
No offense, but your comment is just as ignorant as the ONMUK editor's. "No one deserves respect for creating a "game" like this." Is this game supposed to be a representative of ALL women now? Some sort of stereotyping? At the end of the day this is still a game and not some kind of movement against females. Why don't people get that? "Let’s ignore the combat, the story, the new playable male character, the badass tag-team & equip system, improved/added bestiary, etc." "Like saying porn stars are actresses." So you're blantantly choosing to ignore what the game is really about now just like the editor? That's like judging Catherine by it's cover and saying it's full of nothing but fanservice. "Remember this, ladies: If you’re not fully clothed, you don’t have any character development. None! Don’t even bother trying to be a person." "ROFL! Hey, women! The makers of this game are on YOUR side! I'm sure the feminists love these games.." Yeah let's ignore the fact that the one producing this game at XSEED is also a girl. Just stop it. You're making yourself look foolish here.
I stand by everything I said. If it weren't for the "tearing off clothes" aspect of this game, no one would know it exists.
How was this "review" even OK'd by ONM's editors? And damn, that response on twitter is EPIC! - "they could take a few min to write a reputable report that DOESN’T make them look like a twat." HAHA!
ONMUK just sold me on this "filth",crappy journalism at it's finest.
Hey guys, don't tar us all with the same brush because of some chauvinistic wanker. We're not all disrespectful white knights that don't realise how incredibly sexist they are. ut as far as this numpty is concerned women shouldn't be in control of their own sexuality, It's patently impossible for these numpties to understand that woman can both be sexually desirable and have a strong character as well. All they see is tits. Thus devaluing said female characters and objectifying them in ways that the actual fans of the series rarely do.
Sigh...is it wrong for me to think that the majority of gaming journalist this days are crazy feminazis and white knight? But nice response from Hatsuu / Xseed. Don't let this crazy feminazis or stupid white knight shoving their bullshit on our throat!
Nope but i guarantee, you'll be labelled with several different derogatory terms, despite the accusers knowing nothing relevant about you. The hilarious thing is they probably see themselves as the ones taking the moral high ground. Oh shit speak of the devil. Rpgrinder's post, i realize most of n4g doesn't read the articles but same stupid mentality as the uk nintendo mags author. I hope the game does a million plus just to piss off people like rpgrinder, likely the same type who went ape shit over dragon's crowns sorceress design.
The game is filth. Just like Abriel for defending what should not be defended.
Been looking forward to this game! Can't wait to embrace this 'filth'. Game has real solid mechanics and gameplay. Fanservice is a plus for me ;)
