Well. That was dumb.

Um, as far as I can tell DoAX barely pissed off them SJWs to begin with, nor did the game actually generate much heat/press either (there are more articles/responses to the Play Asia Twitter thing than there was real press about the game to begin with).

The party never seems to be over in regards of fanservice being the devil in the West so I won't jump into conclusions of any of kind. I will say that I did see feelings of SJWs hurt over this though.

Their Twitter page has been very proud of seeing how many followers they get from this fiasco...

Tweets calling out SJWs while being weaponized with smug anime girls generating this kind of traction isn't by definition a fiasco.

I got the 360 version of the original release of DoA5 a few years back. That's $25 I'll never see again.

Those $25 should have gone to Tekken Tag 2. I don't know what cosmic miracle happened for you to get Dead or Alive 5... you are one of the last I could imagine to go after DoA and enjoy it.

Being spiteful of spite doesn't really help anyone.

Let's be real. Regardless of spite or not he was getting Xeno X anyway.

^Last one I checked out? Uhm, that would be some episodes of season one of Gundam 00.

Are Gundam Build Fighters and Iron-Blooded Orphans a good point to get into Gundam again?

What's the point?  You're gonna hand waive it anyways.

I wasn't planning on doing anything. And the point is there in the original post in any event.

Got around to bite the bullet, Dice.

The argument Jim makes in his video with what I said in the fraction of the quote the video was directed towards to doesn't match. You got something else from what I said in the quote that was never there.

Err, it is DLC but what I meant is that it was never meant to be freely avalible. Its an exclusive reward for PS3 players who bought the game guide. So that explains why they are not bringing it to the PC, just as they haven't for the XBOX.

I meant that the garb is like any other piece of DLC. Being some kind of special item was when it was first shown since it was made available on PS3 and 360 eventually. In any case, what matters here is that the stats in Aeris/Aerith's garb are fairly standard and enter in the area of being regularly useful for a defensive approach.

I hear the Yuna one is OP.

That's most likely the one from X-2 I assume.

@Aeolus: Your bait smells salty bro. ;)

Its not actually DLC. It was a reward meant only for those that purchased the game guide. Squeenix had better remove the costume from the game files or its going to be hax back into existence.

It is DLC.

Most (but not all) of those garbs that are DLC are mainly useful in the beginning of LR. However, it is your choice how you handle the usability of a garb with the Schema system. A small tip I'll give you is that you want to be as fast as you can in a fight.

That, and seriously, how many pages of this thread are we going to shit up with this echo chamber of our lying our asses off about not/being disappointed about how we can't jack off to our custom made, scantily clad, tiny, titty monster that looks like something out of noted anime Eiken because NoA are a bunch of cockblocking fascists, and how we're all entitled to get everything we ever want, no matter how useless, superficial or unrealistic it might be, or so help us we're just going to sit in front of our computers and shit up threads and boards about how we're forevermore boycotting NoASS with Operation Salty Tears, all the while making sure we have each and every one of their limited super special collectors' deluxe two turbo editions, even the one for fucking Twilight Princess, when all we want is that stupid ass Wolf Link Amiibo that, at best, will unlock a new shirt for Link to ride around in for Zelda U in 2017?

Hardcore levels of projection there.

If you cancel your preorder over something so superficial I'd say this game was definitely not for you if that was the one defining feature you bought it for.  Plus we're getting all the Character DLC for free so yay a small win for a small loss.

There's an analogy I could make with food and foreigners here but I know is gonna be in vain so I'll give up hope.

You should watch this and listen to it all, especially the part about it "being ok to have different opinions": https://youtu.be/CEfeETiWe5M

Oh geez. ;_;

I dropped the whole deal of seeing videos of Jim fighting the good fight a while ago. More often than not he says what people want to hear, and the ratio of agreement and disagreement I have with his view is chaotic to say the least.

I'll reconsider if I bite the bullet though.

Before anybody gets too much blood pressure going on I'll say that my view on this is how shallow much of the changes in Xeno X are. Like, I had to deal with one scene with Miu Hinasaki in Fatal Frame V losing any kind weight it had before because the lingerie was too much for Nintendo in the West to accept in their alleged family friendly system when I have Bayonetta being a strong independent woman over here in the same platform. Now with Xeno X, the mission of protecting imaginary little Timmy and the rest of all America from the horrors of a bust slider, a girl in a bikini (which is like have you ever been on a beach?) along with religious and philosophical references is like dude, hold on a minute with the changes now.

I'm not angry. But it is somewhat frustrating that this kind of practice is so vehemently supported and defended behind the logic of "is okay when Nintendo does it" when all I'm seeing is a bunch of messing around with content that in the most exaggerated of cases might, and I repeat might, shatter the reality of a market/culture that's been released because of the image the entity in question put into itself.

Nintendo pretty much owns Monolith at this point, so yep, they're the publisher. (And let's be glad they are, because second party titles don't stand a chance if the console maker isn't interested.)

As for censorship... Meh, I'd rather worry about things like cutting out the blood from Xenosaga 3 (and seriously messing up some cutscenes) than having to do without a bust slider in Xenoblade X. Creators should be allowed to go back and reconsider, and since a game like this is the result of the efforts of many (and not just the designer of the crotch window bikinis), it's alright with me if the company says 'this isn't in line with what we - or the game - want to be, so let's change it'.

While changes in gaming are a case by case scenario, the need for a JRPG to be released in a politically correct format is a pretty damn big conundrum when its audience is just as unapologetic as the sub-genre is. I don't blame those that did their pre-order and aren't satisfied with what Nintendo in the West put on their plate.
