With the release of a new character for Tekken 7 that has fans upset, the creator has responded with distaste.
Why can't people just take the new character and enjoy it!? There always has to be something to complain about... I think she's great! Can't wait to play her! (Good thing I'm in Japan! :3
people should be allowed to voice their opinion on anything they like. That developer shouldn't be offended and react like a little child.
Sure but there's a difference between saying you don't like something and complaining. Complaining is stupid, just don't play the character.
Is a developer not entitled to his or her opinion as well? If you are entitled to call a developer's opinion childish - to criticize the quality of his opinion - isn't he, and aren't we, also entitled to criticize opinions?
Removing a character (assuming the removal comment wasn't a joke) because of some criticism on Neogaf and posting a salty retort about "skinheads" is incredibly childish.
That is exactly my point! I'm glad he's listening, but yes, he didn't need to act like that.
Neogaf users are just the goddamn worst anyway. I'm sure the guy will come back to his senses once SJWs stop sh*tting on the character and will end up re-adding her to the US roster.
developers are working hard to deliver stuff..while fans just know to play and critisized it by calling developers are childish,remember,there also childish fans too same goes with football,even coach and players are offended by fans critism
"people should be allowed to voice their opinion on anything they like." following your logic the developer had the same right to voice his opinion, he was not acting like a child. He reacted to trolls in twiter as they deserved, to be treated like the entitled manchild they are.
@those above who say that the developer should also be allowed to voice his opinion, I would agree. But there is an essential difference in him denying his fans a character only because he can't cope with criticism. Thats what I call childish behaviour and on top of that it's unfair.
I think he went a little too far with the "skinhead" comment though. That's kind of saying that USA is a male chauvinist intolerant country, basically calling us racist jocks, like the US police force. But it's not true at all, this is the country that invented emo and nirvana, it's almost as girly as Japan itself.
" developers are working hard to deliver stuff..while fans just know to play and critisized it " Oh and, you know...pay for it.
I totally agree. Except I'm in the USA. Now because of a few annoying dissenters on Gaf we won't get the character at all :(. I'll hold off buying the incomplete version unless the decision is reversed or added via free dlc
Incomplete.... Wow the Internet needs to get there panties out of a bunch.
No, because of a ridiculous developer we won't get the character.
I know this might sound funny but the diehard stationplay crowd is some lil switches they complain about everything
There's already a petition to get her back in the game, after the absolutely ridiculous neogaf forum that got her pulled from the NA release. Get it together, people.
(The Petition https://www.change.org/p/te...
yeah there are like what 30+ characters in Tekken & stupid people find this one offensive? C'mon we got a bear, a wooden guy thing, an android pink haired girl, yet a girl in a cat suit people say doesn't fit in the Tekken universe. Really?
do you remember the dinoasaur with boxing gloves?!
It was the kangaroo that had boxing gloves. Don't think Gon (the dinosaur) had boxing gloves. Either way, both utterly ridiculous characters!!
@Bloop I'm pretty sure tekken 2 or 3 had a boxing raptor in addition to the roo.
Yeah Alex. I think he was a raptor. Him and Roger are basically palette swaps, although they do have some differing move.
Ah yes, I remember the raptor now. It's the little 2 foot orange guy I was thinking of. He was a total pain in the ass to fight.
yes it's also in tag tournament 2
The older I get, the less I understand people.
All that quirky stuff is what made me love Tekken. Just good fun wrapped around a solid fighting game.
...so you're just going to western gamers a stereotype replacement because you're mad at one small group's reaction to your character? (THIS is the detail you should be reading into, guys) This is why I can't take devs seriously anymore, letting consumers hamper their emotions so easily. Harada, you're not Kamiya, stop trying to be a mini version of him.
well,everyone had pride
if you could take the time to check his twitter feed you should know he was being sarcastic and he was more than decent replying to fans for hours.
Harada should be bigger than this, ignore the cry babies and leave all the characters
So she won't be available in "the West", but she will be available in Europe? Someone needs to brush-up on their Geopolitical knowledge. Maybe they should make a further two versions, one for the Eastern market and one for Asia?
I don't care about Tekken7, what has changed from Tekken 6 or 5... I wanted Tekken x Street Fighter..I'm really starting to hate some of these Japanese games, they put out 20 sequels with little to no change in gameplay or sometimes ghaphics. If fans want to get mad at characters, that's the least of Tekken problems. Its hardly no change in the gameplay sense really Tekken 3. I look at killer instinct, or mortal kombat and it's better than Tekken or Soul Cal. Oh and let's not forget about every company that makes fighting games over in japan pushing tons of on disc Dlc for new colors or outfits. What happen to playing the game so much that your earn them.
"I'm really starting to hate some of these Japanese games, they put out 20 sequels with little to no change in game play or sometimes graphics" Wow so I guess American developers don't do this and please list of all these Japanese games you play that have "20 sequels" with no change in game play or graphics. Ignorance is bliss
Ignorance is bliss really Sorry I was wrong 20 sequels within a sequel Dead or Alive 5, 5plus, oh and 5 Final Round lol Street Fighter 4 Super SF4, Super SF4 Arcade, Ultra SF 4, and I bet 5 will do the same. Soul Calibur series Final Fantasy (Can't keep count on that series) Tekken Everything from Dynasty Warriors (Where is the change in that gameplay, we are still hitting the X button through the whole game.) Yeah, I rest my case American Developers don't do this, at least if I spend 50 dollars in dlc for a US, it's to add hours of gameplay or story or and all of the Little Dlc content...Thats call Season Pass Where is the Season Pass for all of those Japanese games.
Creator Responds Angrily!? What the Hell? Since when creator decide what I will be play? I don't like it - I don't pay it, your job is make sure I happy with your product. I'm not happy you don't have a money. You don't have a money - you don't have a job. And can make that game for yourself. Remember - CUSTOMER IS YOUR MASTER.
"Since when creator decide what I will be play?" Since forever, if you don't believe me try playing a game that was never created. Everything you have ever played was decided upon by the creator. They decide what you can or can't play, you decide if you want to or not.
"try playing a game that was never created." I was in need of a good laugh, thanks for that
Lol, well, someone with real logic around here besides me. Love it. :)
Spoken like someone who's never had to deal with a customer. Or created a product to sell.
same things otherwise to customer is always right,but since when customer will be the one deciding all the stuff? creator are the one make the decisions..ofcourse,they need to hear customers feedback..but not neccesarry they need to listen and obey to every one of the complains things aren't easy just like that
if you cared to check his twiter feed you should know he was not ranting or reacting angrily at all, get facts before you type nonsense.
Well done, the first ever recorded event in history where people demand less content on disc. Don't complain when the DLC comes.
Personally I can't stand the character, but Harada should know not to respond in this manner to a post on friggin Neogaf.
nice, another situation where whiners ruined for others.
Heard the characters a "he"
the new character sucks, it just looks like a plain lifeless doll, hell even the moves look so damn recycled. Put a little more effort next time Namco please, in the end we gamers pay your salary, we deserve better quality. :)
So everyone has to suffer cause of some morons on a message board?
The current gen way..
So basically his mind set was "these people who don't want the character are pissing me off, so i'll give them what they want, screw the people who wanted the character"
Love the parts where it calls people from America " skin heads ". Thanks for making it easy for me not to purchase your game, asswipe.
Your paraphrasing go reread it.
I did read it & he stated it twice. I'm not sure what you mean.
Not that you were buying it to begin with
You've got me there.
Again considering there is bears a kangaroo and a tree stump a girl in cat ears is the least ridiculous character in this game.
This character is part of the developers vision. The fact they are willng to change that, after a little bit of pressure, says everything you need to know about the confidence they have in their product.
Devs need to stop looking for unsolicited feedback, make their stuff, then see what happens. Did Picasso ask everyone whether they liked the idea of his abstract paintings? Does Miyamoto get on twitter and canvas for Mario ideas, or trawl NeoGAF in case someone is writing something nasty about him? No. Make your art, developers, and don't look from feedback from people who, in all fairness, don't actually know what they want until they get it.
What a beautiful comment. :,)
Wow I hate the people that just gotta ruin it for everyone. Its a NEW CHARACTER!!!! how can you complain about that its more content for your money geez. Next people are gonna put up a damn petition because Street Fighter V has to many characters...
I'm neither happy or mad. She have an annoying voice and silly but she's no sillier than the bears, kangaroos, and raptor. I hope she is put back in US version.
i like her. i dont understand murrifats flipping their shit over this. oh well, im gonna enjoy playing as her.
lol, muscular, skinhead with powerful attack. this is what other countries think equates to Americans in video games.
"Muscular skin head with powerful attack." So my penis is going to be in this game? SOLD.
Look at your typical Western video game protagonist
put serious players in a game then instead of hookers
To hell with Gamergate, and allowing them to affect games. Some people shouldn't have internet and that should be true for anyone supporting Anita Sarkeesian or is involved with either side of gamergate. All three are scams.
People shouldn't have internet because an oversensitive dev, who you would think knows how to handle criticism by now, reacts to negative feedback of a new character from a small portion of fans by opting to teach them a lesson by implementing mass punishment upon the wider fanbase, even after others came forward to say they like the character? And you actually have people running to stroke this guy's ego by signing a petition to bring the character back? Speak with your dollars and don't buy the game. See how quickly she becomes free dlc. God forbid anyone ever have a problem with something like the arcade mode.
Capcom should retroactively remove Rainbow Mika from SF Alpha 3. While we're at it, SNK should remove Mai from, like, countless games.
Oh no change is a gamers worse nightmare these days please give us the same thing over and over with better rez and fps or just remaster everything that ever sold.
