R.Mika's Critical Art is censored in the latest build of SFV. The camera has been altered to not show the infamous "butt slap", and combo no longer spreads opponents legs apart.
That is dumb change it back.
Oh look, feminists ruining games again. Only thing that will truely piss me off is if they get to Cammys one piece.
Let's all pray for Laura's tits.
This is ass-inine!
Yet another case of completely innecessary censorship... Very disappointing.
I don't think these fake internet feminists of this day and age have anything to do with it. Japan doesn't care about what the SJW's etc have to say about anything. It was likely done to maintain a certain rating for the game. Who gives a damn though. I say bring it back, it's hilarious.
that s why we need people like KOjima ...which shos them a middle finger in the face making ultra sexy characters like Quiet and beast&beauty ...all the other devs look completely idiots censoring their own art expression for some uneducated minorities
Let's have a dude slap his ass in front of the camera too! Would tottaly not be wierd!!! /s
Well, they did nerf's cammy's intro. Before it had a vag shot, now it's just a side shot of her leg. https://www.youtube.com/wat...
Militant feminism can be annoying, but if removing a butt slap actually ruins the game for you, you need to step back and re-evaluate. They removed a cartoon butt shot. Let's keep this in perspective.
Not that I'm in favor of pointless changes, but I fail to see how this ruins the game.
@breakpad For the record, I am COMPLETELY against censorship (this case included), but it's kind of sad that the knee-jerk reaction gamers have to this ridiculous censorship is to romanticize developers who put stupid, juvenile panty / boob shots in their games. Kojima is not a goddamned hero for sticking a camera up Quiet's crotch.
This is what happens when you let Polygon.com speak on behalf of all gamers. They pressure developers with their politics and no other website has the courage to say 'Not In My Name.' People have different tastes. The movie business has a variety of genres and the public vote with their wallets. The difference here is that this pressure has now changed Street Fighter V's animations despite it keeping with the tone of the series. A person is entitled to not appreciate the representation of people in SFV, but their opinions should not outweigh the silent voices of the millions of people who do enjoy it.
I'm pretty sure actual feminists wouldn't care, as long as there's a male equivalent so it's not only sexualizing a female character. I think dad bod Ryu has it covered.
You basically summed up my feelings on this
Put it back in the game
Personally thought it was dumb having them sex up the game in the first place but if you're going to have overly large bouncing boobies for like nearly the whole female cast, why bother censoring the butt slap?
It honestly isn't "sexed" up that much at all. R.Mika is wearing almost the same exact costume from Alpha3, only thing missing is her heart shaped nipples. Chun has always been known for her thighs. Cammy has always been known for her ass. Looks like your average Street Fighter game to me.
I'm curious if they apply the same logic, on the male characters. just so the game is not sexual just towards women. Hahaha "add some crotch parts from men! Lol
The same ratio of men are overly stylized to look "sexy" too in a "manly" way. How many guys have bodies like the street fighter guys? The one argument I would agree with is that women have been treated second place throughout most of history and still are (lower wages etc.), but I think it's dumb to censor these two segments.
"Asses to Asses"
That does seem like a very obvious change. Makes me wonder the motives behind it. Still, there's just something about slapping the buttocks that some people thoroughly enjoy. https://www.youtube.com/wat...
I won't buy censored products anymore. It's the principle of the matter.
Song - "We don't need no thought control..." Censors leave them t**s alone!
You know what ? I really. Hate feminist I really do
http://i.imgur.com/JbcE4SR.... Booty Physics my friend... without the masculine females.
All I saw was a girl with a long back.
DoA characters are SOOOO generic.
Damn!!!!!!! that ASS!!!!!
Ikr? No booty, No Pre-order :P
lol yeah, it was everything about that character that made me want to get the game but now it looks like they are changing the fundamentals.
Just in case some SJW gets offended of course... showing ass in game bad, but sleeping with journalists to promote your game good. we learn new things everyday.
Don't say that on NeoGaf or else you will get attacked by hordes of SJW's and banned for sharing your opinion.
Who would want to join neogaf? It's a cess pit of hypocrisy and crap, made all the worse by the BS abuse of powers the mods use.
@Dark_Overlord: Yea it is ridiculous. I went to a an article on there one time and it was about Anita Sarkeesian getting "harassed" on twitter and the people who were leaving comments with valid criticism which didn't have any bad language or any nastiness at all(which shouldn't matter anyways)were banned immediately. No dialogue, no rebuttal, no nothing just banning them. It's absurd. They have no ground to stand on so they abuse their power on their site to silence people. I can't believe this is allowed to go on honestly.
Not only that, but they are also pro pedophilia.
In regards to viperman240's comment: " Not only that, they are pro pedophilia. " Random post, of someone comparing hating paedophiles to racism. https://archive.is/T38HU The user was banned, but is no longer banned. Here is a little "fun" one for you to investigate when you have a chance. Opiate, who was an admin of the forum, he was demoted for arguing with an alleged victim of sexual abuse. https://archive.is/Rc7g5 Well someone on an anti-NeoGAF sub on Voat, the same one which was nuked from reddit, this someone found some rather disturbing things linked to Opiate, one of them being photos uploaded of young children, linking to an account tied to this former admin. Nothing sexual, but put two and two together, it makes you feel sick to your stomach. Then of course you have the sites owner who posted "revenge porn". There is also the drug addict who bashed his mother and scammed thousands of dollars from the site to support his drug habit. NeoGAF is really something special. They promote the forum as a safe space, but the owner is scum, the mods cater to minorities (look for leaked PM discussion with besada)and a drugged up con artist is cheered when he tells members to F off. Oh, the druggy was also a mod who was demoted for editing posts to win an argument. /scene
Yeah I realised recently that NeoGAf is 4chan's wet dream.
@Activemessiah Funnily enough its not. Neogaf is a laughing stock to them, due to their fanboyism and blatant censorship. If you don't toe the line you'll get banned. @Buzz7S Thanks for that, that was interesting to read and doesn't surprise at all. What is it these people having such dark/messed up pasts/ For example the recent twitch stream Anita did, she had someone moderate her chat who was a convicted pedophile.
"Hypocrisy is the mother of all Tyranny" Slut Just Whores.. SJW
Let's remove the Arab fighter while we are at it. Some US citizens will also get offended if he stays in the rooster!! That's how ridiculous this is!!!!
ok let's not exaggerate here ok. it's not that big difference from the original one. hell i didnt even notice any difference at first lol had to look longer
That typo makes your comment so much better.
lol silly comment. Capcom didn't remove the stuff because of people taking offence. They likely got a preliminary rating from ESRB and felt it was too high. So they got rid of those stuff to lower the rating and thus increase potential sales with younger audience. Street Fighter V isn't just intended for US consumers. It's intended for an international audience. I wonder why you think having an "Arab fighter" may be offensive in the first place... (I'm not from the US)
He was actually being sarcastic about the arab fighter.But people still to this day get butthurt over stuff like that cuz of 9/11 *Rolls eyes* But yes you're right originally SF 5 got an ESRB of "Mature" so im guessing thats why they took it out to lower it to teen, https://www.youtube.com/wat...
I agree. Capcom probably wanted to ensure a T rating like SFIV had. Those suggestive shots, especially since they're repeated over and over in the game, may have been a little too much for the ESRB's tastes to earn less than an M rating. This point may fly over the heads of some, though. Many care more about victimizing themselves and being offended at the mere suspicion of political correctness and SJWs; more than objectively considering the factors that led up to these decisions.
It's not and a certain fighting force is a lot of more of a European problem than the states. I'm sure we have a surprising amount arabs in our armed forces and transportation sectors than most of europe. It's also not ok to call them arabs, they have separate cultures. I'm sure it was the ESRB rating, because we all know kids are buying the ps4. This might even get patched in the pc version... who knows but it's a none issue, just slow news day.
actually, on principle of censorship, i am not gonna buy this game now. why is the human body to be feared? i don't understand!
Whew, finally, I was so scared to get this game, but now I can buy it with confident /s
Personally I don't like playing games that are basically just nude characters(Awkward with parents or kids watching), but I wouldn't want to censor this from someone who feels a game is better with t+a. If a game is not for me I simply have the choice of not buying it, no reason to censor it. Of course Capcom is like any company trying to get the most sales and if something is over the top it can effect sales in both bad or good ways depending on what it is.
They can just add a censor option like other companies do. They did it with assassins creed, sunset overdrive, the last of us, and even Blackops 3 has an option to censor.
Yeah you don't nerf everyone's game because of some 'sensitive' people.
No ass slap. No purchase.
I love how butthurt everyone is simply because they take the attention away from the booty for a fraction of a second, but have added it into frame in the later half. Also I love how everyone is accusing the same 2 people for causing this when Im fairly certain that because Japanese devs usually dont listen to Western critics, and because Ono is shameless of his fan service. But suddenly he decides to change something even slightly and break out the pitchforks everyone.
The people want assslap. I say give them... ass slaP!
I just hope dead or alive never does any censoring of its female characters because that's going to be a very sad day for me. That's when I brush up on my Japanese and start importing sexy games.
the animation look looks weird now, if you had not seen the previous animation you wouldn't know if she was doing a knee slapper or what. Dumb move.
I tried to read the article, but my computer said the site contained malware. So I'm going to assume that it will be censored in North America.
"my computer said the site contained malware" This seems some kind of N4G's bug, happens with every article from time to time, right now you won't see that notification.
Well, Capcom adjusted the camera angle during Cammy's intro so you don't see her crotch anymore... https://twitter.com/AllGame... I'm sure people will be discovering more changes like this
So no more seeing R.Mika slap her cakes when she do her super art? dammit!
... she and Laura still induce boners. This changes nothing.
this is just genuinely disappointing. stuff like this cripples creativity, which is exactly what i loved about the ass-slap ; the first time I saw it i actually laughed out loud because it was such a brilliant thing that I'd never seen ANYBODY else in videogames do, and that's why i love them - not for the sex appeal, but for the magic little moments of the unexpected. first, the change in Cammy's design, now this. And it's just gonna keep on going, till all we have are clones and sequels.
You sir just called a butt slap a magic little moment. Do you realize how you sound? It was unnecessary and obviously offensive to a lot of people. It wasn't Creative, Brilliant or anything but perverted.
So why are movies allowed to have nudity or sex. Porn is easily available, but when it comes to gaming all of a sudden sex or nudity is offensive. It doesn't make no sense.
Because movies with that content will recieve an R or NC-17 rating while this will receive a T rating. Even then when that content is in movies, those movies don't make as much as movies without Sex and Nudity. If they want to have this in they could at the least give players who don't want to see all that an option to censor it like other games have.
Really now could you give me a definition of what creativity is? or what it represent. Its closed minded people like you who still believe the world is flat holding black humanity creativity is multi spectral thing it doesn't have any one way of creating it you saying it's not creative just because it doesn't fit you're tea and crackers everything else is rubbish way of thinking is just sad
I can't believe people are actually complaining that they changed it... Like really?
It's fanboy hate obviously and click bate. No one is mad over this. Actually it reminded me it was still coming out. Free press. Let me go censor some upcoming project reall quick... sweet 40k saved!
