Censorship topic (out of the news thread)



  • I bet you that developer will make a lot more money because of this controversy.



  • @iboshow
    Probably, at least more then they would of made had it released on Steam, will probably find it's way to Nutaku or something in a few days



  • From what I've heard about this whole thing it just reads to me like Hatred: Sexual Content Edition. Banking on the streisand effect to do the marketing for them, and whenever it shows up on some other platform it'll probably do just fine.



  • It's crazy that they're using such careful language to justify their decision: "unknown costs and risks", "We respect developers' desires to express themselves", "difficult for us to help them"...

    Can't you just say "This game is horrible and shouldn't exist and we refuse to be associated with it or whoever made it"?

    Because really, fuck this game and whoever made it...



  • Yeah I don't get why Steam is being so vague about their reasoning. Just say "this game is shit and we don't want it," and I'm sure 99% of people will be ok with it. I'm sure it has to do with not wanting to violate their new hands-off policy, but a game that encourages sexual assault is much different than some horny guy's visual novel.



  • Damn! I better get a refund!

    @capnbobamous Because then all of the shitty manchildren who make up a significant amount of "gamers" that don't understand what free speech means will have a complete mental break and take out all their misplaced sexual frustration on Valve.



  • @el-shmiablo I say let them cry. Steam will not be hurt in the slightest by their complaining, and it serves as entertainment for the rest of us.

    @Sheria Take it down a notch. You might not agree with the people, but the way you are engaging in the discussing is by name calling and trying to trigger others. I dont say you have to agree with them, but approach it in a more mature way than calling it all juvenile etc.

    It's ok, I clearly don't need to post anymore as the comments in the thread are amusing enough on their own even without rebuttal. Maybe one day though some might actually see that there's already enough name calling and attempts to trigger going on here and stop being so one sided :)





  • A female bum in an 18+ game, clearly a cause for concern.



  • @sheria
    It clear is, based on the response to its removal.

    I find the discussion on making such a change is something very different, but that's me. I don't think the minor details on what exactly has been "lost" in this individual case is really their concern.

    Sony Computer Entertainment got so pretentious after moving their headquarters to Cali. I miss the good old days, when they didn't bat an eye at sex (God of War).

    I don't get why anyone would find it inappropriate or problematic in the first place, regardless of where you are in the world. It's all just bat shit crazy...

    The inclusion and the alteration of the content aren't issues worth concerning myself with.



  • @hanabi Did they just Chinese Winnie the Pooh her butt?

    I'd agree with you on isolated cases, but every day at the moment I open my browser, newspaper or turn on the TV to see a new, ridiculous case of how 'snowflake' we've become. Appealing to the overly-sensitive minority really has become a problem, and it encompasses much more than just this case here.

    Let's face facts: somewhere, someone/some people have issues with seeing a bare bum in a game, and instead of shrugging it off as the silly non-issue it is, Sony are siding with it and actually taking it onboard.

    The inclusions and alteration of content in video games isn't really worth it to me either, it's just that I see a much bigger picture here.

    The worst thing is that most people don't care. Some act like you're perverted for wanting bums in games and tell you to watch porn instead. Comments like this:

    "It is pathetic that you guys care for a censored butt. Go watch porn or something instead."

    "Lol only creepy pervs care about this. Oh no! They blurred out a digital butt! Boooo bad guy Soyny! Lol"

    Gamers are really immature.

    Unfortunately, some people are very shortsighted, you notice it immediately when they start calling you a paedophile, perverted, an incel, nazi or manchild. Thankfully they're so easy to spot.
