Sophia George of PQube spoke a lot about what drew her to the Gal*Gun series and somehow – against all odds – we managed to have a serious conversation about a game full of cute girls and happy endings.
they are basically porn games. same as senran kagura and the sad thing is some trying to normalize this stuff to kids. in the real world nobody would be caught playing either of them in front of family members even though some try to downplay them
porn games huh...that are also somehow okay for the Switch? right...
You have a very skewed perception of what porn is. Must have been brought up on games which involve nothing but killing, and warped your mind. See? I can play the "Think of the children" game also.
Well, kids these days are all about Among Us. I've known six and seven year olds who play that game...with complete strangers...some of whom may be the reason why that game now has an optional language filter that's on by default. But no...we need to keep them from playing Gal Gun. They should stick to killing games, because that's better...right?
So, you’re ok with mutilation and gratuitous violence and gore, but a cartoon game with suggestive themes and no nudity that’s rated M is what gets your panties in a bunch? GTA has full on nudity and sex scenes, drug use, extreme language, extreme violence, criminal activity, but I doubt you have a problem with the “kids” getting a hold of that M rated game? I think you need to get your priorities straight.
I don’t see why not slap an M rating on it and be done with it. Other games are M and deal with drugs violence full nudity etc
@Piggeroni Gal Gun is nothing compared to Hunnie Pop you want oppai just play that game. I like anime Gal Gun is a good game I own it on the Switch. I own Gal Gun 2 and Double Peace. I am assuming you never kept skin magazines under your bed growing up. Or rented a porn movie I would say you were sheltered as a kid Gal Gun and Senran Kagura fall flat from being classified as porn more ecchi style then a full on hentai.
I know you're saying that in jest, because Japan has a pretty strict no hentai on consoles rule. I'm pretty sure that for something to be porn, it has to have nudity in it. Also, I think I heard this is on Switch, which is a console far more children have access to. Heck, isn't there a Senran Kagura game on the Switch? Besides bruh, if you're a concerned parent, the answer isn't for certain games to be denied to everyone. It's to take responsibility and make sure any minors under your care are sticking to playing games with content you think is acceptable for them. Why should devs and publishers parent for you?
Unfortunately, western gaming is going through another puritanical age right now, only it's not coming from the religious right this time. Sad days. Just bring all these games to pc, where they can be enjoyed.
The right barely even tried with hardly any success. This time it’s coming straight from the left via western big tech companies and sadly it’s working.
I'm afraid Xbox is following Sony on this weird censorship trend. PC is the last frontier and stronghold now
People honestly need to unclench their buttholes and realize that these games are harmless fun.
Stop making these things for consoles. Just keep it on PC and stop letting others dictate what gets released and what doesn't.
"stop letting others dictate what gets released and what doesn't." "Stop making these things for consoles." Ok stop dictating to consoles then and solve your own damn problems.
An absolute travesty. The world needs more loli panty shots.
I would have bought this on XB1 just to collect I know I could import the older Gal Gun games from Japan. I would need a Japanese 360 as well to play the games but a niche game like this in North America and popping up on an XB1 would be worth it to collect.
Sad to see these fan service games die out as the gameplay, story, and characters can be good. Pc and switch is where its at.
It's so bizarre to think that Nintendo is safeguarding IP's like this and making sure they have a platform to be released on. Microsoft's decision comes as no surprise though. When the game first released on the 360 in Japan years ago, MS released a patch to 'fix camera issues' when in reality it prevented players from looking up the girl's skirts. XD
The crazy thing about this is, this game could have helped sell Xboxes. If Microsoft could have gotten the game on Game Pass too, it also would have been successful for them and possibly opened the door to other Japanese games, but I guess Microsoft doesn't want success in Japan.
Xbox360 had many Japanese niche games (many are available in Japan only), but still that didn't sell many units.
The Japanese just don't buy Xbox (I can state an suspicion of mine, but I'll get nuked with down votes for it).
In this particular case I don't think it would. Mainly because the Switch got a version of the title and given the current trend in Japan, the playerbase would chose that over any other console. But is true that the most successful Xbox in the country was the 360, being the only one to actually break through the 1M units in the region and that was likely at least in part because of the exclusivity deals for smaller titles like the original Gal Gun.
This is that game where you make school-girls orgasm by shooting them right?
Ahh wahtever. i got a switch now. so i can play these fun games on switch instead
I like how this all just devolved into; "If you don't think Sony or MS are beholden to release GalGun, then you must be fine with kids playing Doom Eternal!" Things don't work out that way guys. "Games" that use sex are marketed differently than violent games. When I'm scrolling through the list of upcoming releases, it's not like all the box art is someone ripping a human heart out of someone's chest. Go and take a look at the adult section of steam, I personally don't want that mess of low quality garbage clogging the PS Store or the Xbox store.
