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.

No word on the model kits? Guess they really went under the radar then.

Ygg welcome to my ignore list. *gasp* I am censoring you!...and I am okay with that.

Now can we drop this stupid topic, I brought it up because it was a minor frustration not because I wanted to poison the discussion here. My apologies for not realizing that it would do the latter. >.>

The fact that a lot of you see like I'm on the "wrong" end of the spectrum going by the status quo of this green forum is pretty disappointing to be honest.

By any chance, has there been any more info on the Dolls/Skell model kits by Kotobukiya? Haven't seen anything on this since the announcement.

*sigh* I need to remember never to go the Gamefaqs board for this game again. I wanted to waste a few minutes while I waited for my breakfast to cool off, and thought it would be a good idea to check out what topics were being discussed. Five seconds later I am head desking over the plethora of topics over how people are boycotting the game over the lack of skimpy jail bait and a bust slider. I officially hate the fandom for this game (or at least this vocal minority). >.>

Ironically, those fans with allegally "better" standards and priorities are in many cases worse than those who are displeased with the changes and are perfectly fine with their loli fanservice or the customization maniacs that want their bust slider. There's also the whole thing with perception and context, but that's a very messy subject.

More than any of that though, the issue for the longest time has been Nintendo's misguided family friendly image in the West and a league of insufferable fans making excuses for them. Is as simple and as annoying as that.

Cloud's amiibo is obviously gonna be made by Nintendo and is also more than likely that is gonna sell by itself.

So apparently DQH sold well, then?

Plans for localization, announcement and release takes place way before the company is getting the numbers they are interested in seeing internally. What, in part, did the trick were fans showing interest and asking about DQ in the West. Also I'm sure that with the kind of reaction Hyrule Warriors got it helped DQ Heroes to get out of Japan among the cries to see DQVII on 3DS in America and Europe.

^That honestly sounds like a classic comment the most casual of players or spectators would make.
