NeoGAF reacts badly to Tekken 7’s Lucky Chloe, Dev reacts badly to NeoGAF

Chief developer and founder of the Tekken series, Katsuhiro Harada, was linked to a NeoGAF thread largely criticizing the design, style, and personality of the newly announced Tekken 7 character Lucky Chloe.

Via twitter, Harada has decided to fight back - saying that Lucky Chloe will no longer feature in the American version of the game.

This time, I have to agree with Neogaf... this thing comes straight out of hell.

it just one character in fighting game
don't get what the big deal here ?!

don't play as her ...problem solved

sigh...Most of the time gamers are really complaining for the sake of complaining

nicksetzer13484d ago (Edited 3484d ago )

But, if I do that then I can't make a big deal out of nothing and cry about it over the internet.

Didn't you know that we all have to have a hive mind and anything one person doesn't like everyone else has to not like it too... it's impossible to just not use that character, or even not buy the game if you are concerned. You have to make it impossible for others to experience it also by overdramatizing and petitioning online.

@nicksetzer1

Someone need to tell those developers to stop pointing guns at those gamers head to buy their games.

smh...gamers those days, man.

Typically respect about nothing that comes from Gaf -most users think they are entitled to be the voice of the industry.

On a side note what he said does make sense as maybe 5% of gamers post on forums such as gaf when they dont speak for the entire western audience. Most casual gamers probably do like having big chested chicks in skimpy out fits and have no idea what gamergate is or would they care

breakpad3484d ago (Edited 3484d ago )

ridiculous Neo Gaf ..Harada do your job and release it for EU and Japan , if US are represented by neogaf and they dont want Chloe render Anita for a fighter

@Ezz2013

I'm gonna have to agree with you. Of all weird/bad characters that have been put into video games this is the one that is garnering all this hate...

Also, I understand that Neogaf is a huge community of gamers... but come on. No offense to anyone on Neogaf but about 1/2 the posters there seem to just want to post something that gets them "rep" from other posters. They seem to be just chasing the next "zing" so they'll say anything.

A great deal of them seem to be overly reactionary, "we hate it" "wait, not we love it" "no we hate it again" it's just back and forth. It doesn't happen often but every now and then they'll give a game/dev the benefit of the doubt...

IDK maybe it's not just NeoGaf... it's the internet. It's pretty much the same way everywhere.

Baka-akaB3484d ago

Except it is the internet . Sure gaf got worse , but historically and even still with the misstep and crap sometimes going on there with leakers and others , it was still a better source of gaming intel and news than anything usually posted here

SilentNegotiator3484d ago (Edited 3484d ago )

Can we stop acting like some people with criticisms on Neogaf did anything wrong and start looking at the fact that this childish developer removed a character because some people on a single site (which he belittled by calling a "small world"...yet was somehow still big enough to take action over) and got all salty (saying that he would give us a "skinhead" character in her place)?

The developer removed the character; not some people on neogaf that didn't like the character.

Kenshin_BATT0USAI3484d ago (Edited 3484d ago )

I wouldn't say 'gamers' are to blame here. SJWs clearly the 'offended' party. by that I meant them existing is making them offended.

IMO Neogaf is seriously freaking lame. They prove it time and time again. Like a shitty version of 4chan at this point.

Tzuno3483d ago (Edited 3483d ago )

The problem is that is a waste on character roster, better to play a good character than a retarded one.

FriedGoat3483d ago

Thank god I'm in Europe.

Burning_Typhoon3483d ago

It's not as simple as not playing with her in a fighting game. You can't just do that. If you're going to get good in a fighting game, you have to know the character well enough to beat them in a high level match.

Which... requires picking her.

Anyway, as long as she's unique enough, she should be okay. I still don't like her, but since she's there, I guess I have no choice but to warm up to her... a little.

Well, technically, you're agreeing with some of the posters on neogaf. You're disagreeing with some of them too. Because in that thread were several different opinions about the char. both negative and positive - just like here, because, funnily enough, it's a forum and that's what tends to happen.
There was no petition, no gathering of pitchforks, just a selection of people responding to a video game char reveal.

Qrphe3484d ago

Neogaf can go to hell on this one truth be told

Mankey3484d ago

Lol and a bear with boxing gloves doesn't?

nX3484d ago (Edited 3484d ago )

Did you just hate on a bear with boxing gloves? :D
I just think that she's not only an idiotic cliché but also stupid and annoying as hell, I might even leave the match if someone uses her online.

NovusTerminus3484d ago

Because she's no dumber then Paul's hair right?

3-4-53484d ago

In life right now........this is literally a non-issue.

Dubaman3483d ago (Edited 3483d ago )

It is a completely ridiculous idea for a character. I'd rather pick a character which is realistic and serious like Gon the dinosaur, Kuma the Polar bear, Roger the Kangaroo and his son, Roger Jr. Oh and lets not forget Devil and the ingeniously named panda bear character; Panda.
Why can't they just keep giving us the same believable characters we're use to, why change anything. It's clear that modern gamers don't like change or a challenge any more, especially in a series which has been going longer than a majority of modern gamers have been alive.
Obviously the character i choose in a fighting game reflects entirely upon me as a person and a gamer so i won't have the dev's put a gun to my head and force me to play as a woman who chooses to wear a "sexy" cat outfit. My manhood is all i have, it's what defines me as a person and i won't humiliated like this.

Oh /sarcasm

They're tekken the piss with that new character.

CorndogBurglar3484d ago

lol. that was funny. Bubble up.

Bathyj3484d ago

True, but this is tekken it too far.

Enemy3484d ago (Edited 3484d ago )

I like how GAF starts a fight and then gets offended when a dev has a reply they don't like, just like how they got called out by Druckmann for their ridiculous "Nathan Drake is a mass murderer" BS.

Clown_Syndr0me3484d ago

He kind of is a mass murderer, as are characters like Ellie and Joel.
They murder a lot of people! How many times during Uncharted did you sneak up behind enemies and take them out with no regard for who they are, or open fire before offering peace or trying to work thinags out in a civil matter?
Im glad you don't have to do all that crap though, I'm just saying xD

elsuperamigo3484d ago

Fok those Chinese and their weird tastes, remove if you want here in the west we can decide the destiny of your game,if you dont like it go sell your 500k units only in asia

johndoe112113484d ago

Yeaaahh soooooooo....... You need mental help. Go visit a shrink IMMIDEATELY.

hazelamy3484d ago

what exactly is the issue people are having with this character anyway?
