A Japanese game developer has spoken out to provide a rare insight into Nintendo’s alleged “censorship” of games deemed too raunchy or shocking for Western audiences.
No no no Nintendo you off track here, and wrong
oh look an article talking about censorship happened in 2014-mid 2016 on three games. People tried to boycott over meaningless things that had no effect on gameplay
I wouldn't boycott it but it's defiantly wrong to alter the developers product
If they were meaningless than they wouldn't have been changed to begin with.
Yes, because the vast majority of westerners are SJWs. Oh wait, they're not. SJWs only have this much influence because they've taken over positions of power. Now that they have it, they're forcing their views on everyone. Of course, that can only go so far, before people get fed up and say "no". The best case scenario is that they are removed from those positions of power. The worst case scenario (and I'm talking about stuff FAR beyond video games here) is Civil War.
Once people realize they're a vocal minority who, in most cases, aren't the intended audience for whatever they're whining about on any particular week, they'll lose all their power.
Doesnt matter if they're a vocal majority. If they're not buying games, and the people who are buying games want what the SJW are telling devs to take out, eventually, the people buying the games will win. Seems like a pretty common sense deal to me. Problem now is that publishers are afraid of the negative press for not submitting, and likely have already come to the conclusion that pandering to a vocal group of any nature doesn't mean they can get sales from that group.
Like I said, I'm talking about stuff FAR beyond video games with that statement (like compelled speech stuff that is happening in Canada right now). I'm talking about SJWs going to such extremes, that we can no longer be considered free.
Can we please stop blaming SJWs? Im so sick to death of people thinking they're to blame when it comes to censored is isint. T rea
Nothing new here westerners are very allergic to fan service but don't mind gore at all whilst Japan is the exact opposite.
wait.. so they censored for western audiences cause they think its too sexy? STOP CENSORING YOUR PORN THEN!
"Censorship whores" aka Liberals are so damn frustrating.
Meanwhile, HBO is seeing record subscriptions because they are making compelling content which is both raunchy and violent as all hell. Maybe Nintendo should not put the entire western audience into a single category, and realize that there are plenty of diverse tastes within gaming.
