Yeah, ability to die and get a game over after final bosses = one of the worst ideas ever.

There was also an Obvious Beta part of Arc the Lad II where character sprites in a town are invisible after beating the nearby dungeon.

...so I guess it's safe to say that none of us will be buying Matrix's Lascivious Labyrinth: Big Boobies game then. 

As for Working Designs, my big issue with their text localizations were the pop culture references.  They always killed any immersion I had being in a fantasy world and would feel totally dated were I to replay it later on in life.  And I agree that some of their gameplay tweaks were terrible.  Silhouette Mirage would have been a totally fun game had they kept the original Japanese play mechanics and balance as is and not thrown a monkey wrench into its works for the US version, making it an absolute kick in the nuts to play.

Yeah, topical references definitely tend to date videogames, the same going for TV shows.

Would that be Velvet in Tales of Berseria?  She was the bustiest of all the ladies in the game.

Velvet, Milla, Sheena, Tear, Grune, Judith etc. There's usually always someone.

Mint, Mary, ...., Rutee, Sheena, Hilda, Grune (despite Chole being not-a-slouch in that department, probably the only game in the series with multiple Boobs), Tear, Judith, ...., Ange, Raine (because Sheena didn't come back), Judith, Innes, Pascal, Milla, Milla again, Lailah and Velvet.

I think that's all of them. Eternia and the first DS game are pretty bereft of cleavage, but the rest seem to stack up (though Symphonia 2 falls pretty flat as well).
In my vision, I see that one of us is going to KO the other.

I agree with what was said on the podcast. Sometimes its ok but most of the time its just too much. It is horribly out of place just for fanservice. I dont think it makes ANY game better at all.

I think it depends on how good the story is. Of course the best RPGs and have great stories AND great gameplay, but sometimes you find a game that has a really bad story with great combat that actually pushes you through to the end of the game. In that kind of game, I think the boobs are just a bonus so they do make the game better.

Or maybe I should say they WOULD make the game better. I've actually never played a game with an excessive amount of fan service like this one. I'm still gonna check out Omega Labyrinth Z because I haven't played any of Matrix Software's games after Alundra, so I haven't been let down by them yet. We'll see how this one is.

I just think in anime also. I am not saying EVERY game or anime with fan service makes it crap. Once in a while you get some i just think it devalues it so much just to try and get an audience. I just think it so is not needed. If its for dlc, or just for fun like a hotspring scene bath scene thats ok. Just i dunno i just want a great story : D

You know, I don't mind seeing boobs or other trashy sex'd up stuff as long as the game itself is actually good (see also: Soul Calibur series). What I don't care for are games where the T&A is the only thing it offers (and/or is even disingenuous about that).

And with all that being said, https://gematsu.com/2018/06/omega-labyrinth-z-western-release-cancelled

A sad day for The Legendary Zoltan. Lol.

I'm not going to say it's a win, but it's certainly not a loss. I didn't see anything from a gameplay perspective that made it stand out, and there are already better ecchi games on the PS4 and certainly the PC. I'm sure people who were looking forward to it are going to be disappointed, and probably worried as to what kind of precedent this could set...but it could still work out in end. I mean, looking at Omega Labyrinth Z, it really doesn't look like it would've been cost effective for them to release it outside of Japan, and I certainly hope the lessons they learned will help them in the future.

Maybe next time they won't choose a game that isn't risque enough to be porn, but deals with subjects that rating boards really don't approve of? That's long and complicated enough that trying to change content that complies with their demands would require a ton of work, and probably just anger their niche fanbase anyways?

You know, silver lining and all that jazz....

Censorship alarmists may try to cry foul and use the "slippery slope" argument, but I don't think there is anything to worry about.  Gratuitous sex and violence in video games will always be there.  Games like HuniePop and Grand Theft Auto certainly aren't hurting for sales.  I think the biggest squick issue with Omega Z is/was the "loli" factor.  Sexualizing children is criminally and morally wrong in pretty much every country of the world. No matter how much you retool the script to say the girls are 18+, anyone can plainly see that several Omega Z characters are hyper-sexualized schoolgirls under the age of consent.  Criminal Girls tried to script it so that all the girls were 18 or older, but one look at the game and you know several of them were kids.  I STILL wonder how in blue blazes both of those games got through the rating boards, because they were 50 million shades of wrong, nope, and WTFisthisIdon'teven...

I have no problem with Sony rejecting a game that has lolis.  Seriously don't have a problem with it.  Would I be outraged if the game was approved?  Probably not.  On the other hand, there is a certain creepy factor over adult gamers lusting after under aged female characters.  The only people who should be lusting after underaged teenage girls are underaged teenage boys and other underaged teenage girls.

Under no circumstances should Quentin Tarantino be allowed to befoul Star Trek.

Well if you want to see what the Australia ratings board had to say on the matter:

Quote
The game features a variety of female characters with their cleavages emphasised by their overtly provocative clothing, which often reveal the sides or underside of theiur breasts and obscured genital region. Multiple female characters are also depicted fully nude, with genitals obscured by objects and streams of light throughout the game. Although of indeterminate age, most of these characters are adult-like, with voluptuous bosoms and large cleavages that are flaunted with a variety of skimpy outfits.

One character, Urara Rurikawa, is clearly depicted as child-like in comparison with the other female characters. She is flat-chested, physically underdeveloped (particularly visible in her hip region) and is significantly shorter than otehr characters in the game. She also has a child-like voice, wears a school uniform-esque outfit and appears naive in her outlook on life.

At one point in the game, Urara Rurikawa and a friend are referred to as "the younger girls" by one of the game's main characters. In the Boards opinion, the character of Urara Rurikawa is a depiction of a person who is, or appears to be, a child under 18 years.

In some gameplay modes, including the "awakening" mode, the player is able to touch the breasts, buttocks, mouths and genital regions of each character, including Urara Rurikawa, while they are in sexualised poses, receiving positive verbal feedback for interactions which are implied to be pleasurable for the characters and negative verbal feedback, including lines of dialogue such as "I-It doesn't feel good..." and "Hyah? Don't touch there!," for interactions which are implied to be unpleasurable, implying a potential lack of consent.

The aim of these sections is, implicity, to sexually arouse these characters to the point that a "shame break" is activated, in which some of the characters clothing is removed - with genital regions obscured by light and various objects - and the background changes colour as they implicitly orgasm.

In one "awakening" mode scenario, thee player interacts with Urara Rurikawa, who is depicted lying down, clutching a teddy bear, with lines of dialogue such as "I'm turning sleepy...", "I'm so sleepy now..." and "I might wake up..." implying that she is drifting in and out of sleep.

The player interacts with this child-like character in the same manner as they interact with adult characters, clicking her breasts, buttocks, mouth and genital regions until the "shame break" mode is activated. During this section of the game, with mis-clicks, dialogue can be triggered, in which Urara Rurikawa says, "Stop tickling...", "Stop poking..." and "Th-that feels strange...", implying a lack of consent.

...

In the Board's opinion, the ability to interact with the character Urara Rurikawa in the manner described above constituted a simulation of sexual stimulation of a child.

Basically, its all because of her:



They of course, neglect to mention the disability this character suffers from with her two left feet. :V
