The only explanation for this I can think of is that Play-Asia must have been desperate for cash and attention. This smacks of a last-ditch attempt at relevance to me.
No love lost, I always found those doofuses way overpriced. I was a ShopNCSX boi.
Basically. Their Twitter page
has been very proud of seeing how many followers they get from this fiasco...
I don't even care since looking at DoA5 Last Round tells me DoAX3 is going to be nothing more than a platform to sell $4000 worth of DLC
SERIOUSLY. I was wondering why I kept seeing like 100 "last round" updates...
Yeah, I have no problem with that stuff as long as they're atleast honest about and don't fall back on 'she breathes through her skin' bullshit. I guess some guys (and girls!) just enjoy dumb fanservice, which is fine, as long as it's not taken too seriously. Besides, it's not as if female gamers are all innocent. Some of those otome-games on PSN are kinda creepy in multiple ways. Not to mention all those games that offer fanservice for both sexes, some even going the extra mile for the ladies.
(Xillia 2's hotsprings ending is a good example.
Milla wearing more fabric than she did during the entire game, other girls only showing some shoulders and such. Meanwhile, the guys side is very.. eh, steamy? suggestive? a fujoshi's wet dream right there on the screen?
Having worn one of those mascot outfits the hotsprings ending brought up some very uncomfortable and familiar memories of almost sweating to death. xD
But honestly, adored Alvin and Gaius as fabulous eye candy; they had the look and act going on super well.
