andriasang: Sony gives a new date for its mysteriously delayed download title. Artwork reveals possible reason for the delay.
ahahaha. this is wonderful
I read that as "FAT PRINCESS GAINS A FINGER" and thought "Did the power of her nether regions snap off the poor peasants finger?" Infact I do believe that my two rings and a watch are missing..........
freddy got fingered x3
Why can't characters have four fingers over there?
Good question. I guess lots of subtle art changes happen before games get released over there. Ever see the Japanese Ratchet? He looks like an anime character.
it has to do with some big japanese butchering from a while ago. people had one of their fingers cut off which left them with 4. basically, the 4 fingers offends the japanese because of the tribulations they went through. i remember reading a long time about this same incident resulting changes to the psone oddworld games' art direction.
Don't know someone on there site said something about four menaing bad luck or even death. Don't know if there is any truth to that.
i thought it was because of the tradition in the yakuza to chop off part of one of their fingers as a punishment. they don't want to associate their game with criminals. i vaguely recall some talk about the simpsons being a problem in japan for this very reason.
yes, you're exactly right. i knew it had something to do with a crime organization chopping off fingers, but i forgot who it was.
this is news? slow day.
