Atlus can do better than this creepy, porn-lite dungeon crawler

Polygon:
Atlus, as a North American publisher, is a treasure.

We wouldn't be able to play dozens of great Japanese games in English without its localization crew. This ranges from the internally developed Shin Megami Tensei/Persona games to side projects from other developers that it chooses to bring over such as the soon-to-be-released Attack on Titan: Humanity in Chains. Atlus is a great company.

"creepy, porn-lite dungeon crawler" - Polygon.

Enough said.

Snookies12939d ago

Polygon, that's all that needs to be said for me to dismiss something. That site needs to be taken down.

miyamoto938d ago

Polygon is funded by Microsoft so there you go..... evil begets evil.
The people at Polygon has no morals or ethics.

FarEastOrient938d ago

Polygon again, who approved this stuff? It only supports click baiting instead in place of other articles.

DragonKnight938d ago

@miyamoto: Even MS are not spewing this SJW tripe. Polygon is the same kind of cancer that Kotaku is. Fitting since a lot of the staff used to work for, or run, Kraptaku.

That's what the game looks like why not call it that? A immature name for a immature game.

Spotie938d ago

Frankly, the rush to label sexuality as immature, creepy, or porn is the most immature thing of all.

Erik7357938d ago (Edited 938d ago )

Yes I agree with spootie...having a mindset of a horny 15 year old boy is not a sign of immaturity in a grown man at all.

madjedi938d ago (Edited 938d ago )

Oh how I miss when gaming was considered a nerds obsession, and people enjoyed gaming for the simple fun of it. Regardless of what social hipsters, think of them.

The more people try to make gaming an art form, the more these elitist asshats will try and squeeze any resemblance of fun out of games.

In the name of political correctness, diversity or inclusiveness regardless if it has anything to do with the story or gameplay.

It is strange only straight male sexuality or male's sexual appetite is demonized in the media.

But women are free to objectify men without reproach, as is the lgbt group and the media's borderline obsession with promoting it.

Society is in for a rude awakening at some point if it continues to demonize all aspects of a male's identity, ambitions or desires.

As long as a person is not abusing or physically harming someone/ breaking the law, who cares if they play an "immature game".

Ah the old reliable shaming tactics. Versus the mindset of a horny 16 yr old girl in a grown woman's body.

Kind of funny seeing polygon praise Atlus for bringing over Japanese games which they seem to be against most of the time.

Maybe polygon needs to review games instead of trying to be some sort of moral authority, because they clearly lack the ability to understand what moral implication is. Focusing on one thing is best. Moddonna once said that singers that try to be actors as well become mediocre at both, and I feel the same here is true. You can't be a good reviewer, and a good social commentator, so best to stick with one thing and excel at it instead of becoming bad at both..or just exemplify how bad you already are at what you say you are...or whatever.

It's hard to review a game objectively when the material of said game offends the player, and it's pretty obvious if someone is offended by the content, they aren't likely to be reading a review of the game, nor will they purchase the game.

This begs the question then...who is this review for? Is it for the readers and potential buyers, or is it for the authors own ego...or is it to simply generate hits.

I'm starting to wonder if good reviewers are now bad reviewers because of pressure to drive hits to the site.

I find it even more funny that they are docking points for the witcher because of of its' maturity

Polygon will be polygon

DragonKnight938d ago

I find it incredible that anyone can be offended by fictional sexuality. Even more so because I know that offense is a choice, hence the ability to take or not take offense whenever you wish. It's one thing to say one is disgusted by something, that's a legitimate reaction, but offence is not a reaction so they are either disingenuous shysters or they live their lives CHOOSING to be upset over the most nonsensical things.

rainslacker938d ago

@Dragon

You bring up a good point.

I think nowadays people have either forgotten, or are ignorant of the difference between offensive material and objectionable material.

Not to say that objectionable and offensive material can't be one in the same, but in this case, fan service or hyper-sexualization are not meant to offend, so the offense is entirely on the person who is offended. It would be offensive if these games were doing this kind of thing on representations of the author, or those he represents or cares about, but in this case, it's only doing it on a wide scale based on gender, but is never meant to imply personal representation of anyone.

I dunno...I know what I'm trying to say above, but it's 3:30am and I don't think I'm expressing my examples properly to convey my argument. So if anyone cares to reply, keep that in mind so I hopefully don't have to clarify tomorrow.

nosferatuzodd938d ago

dark-kyon939d ago

Can't believe what a "journalist" have the shame to spread all this fud about a game what he have not played.well only thing to do now is buy the game and vote with my wallet,help what the game is very good.

bOObies939d ago

Just because of this I'm buying it day one too

Nonscpo937d ago

Same here! I was originally going to buy it down the road, but buying it day one suddenly seems like a good idea :)

WeAreLegion938d ago

You know what? Developers should make whatever they want to make.

drizzom938d ago

They have every right to as well. Creators have a right to their creative freedom. The best any of these whiners can do is try to shame and demonize into submission. But as long as they are protected by law everyone can ignore the living fuck out of these sjws.
