>Those who are familiar with the Japanese versions of this series will also know that unlockable costumes usually include bikinis for the main female cast. I'm sad so say that, just like in the English release of Fatal Frame 2 on Wii, the bikini content is also removed from this game. This censorship seems silly for a game rated as Mature 17+ by the ESRB, but it certainly doesn't detract from the overall experience of the game, and there's plenty of other post-game bonus content to discover.
CENSORED! CENSORED! CENSORED!
>Peiple buy this
Wow! The digital model works, and censorship is A-Ok!
>People don't buy this
Oh, I guess the west just doesn't like Fatal Frame! No more localization, then.
WHAT THE FUCK DO I DO
I'm not buying FE Fates because they're going to do this exact same shit to it.
I actually don't care about the costumes but, there were people that were interested in them. I only care about digital only. However, there's no reason to discount the fanservice purchasers who now are not going to buy it. DOA.
Ether my eyes are slowly getting opened to how bad any localization is or it has been desperately reaching for new lows in recent years.
Removing a bonus costume is not even that bad compared to what localization groups like NISA can do.
>tfw learning nip and soon I will be free of this nightmare
They censored an M rated niche survival horror game about suicide that they didn't expect to sell. What do you think they're going to do to a massive JRPG they want to make real money with that contains a 13 year old girl you can slut up?
I actually feel sorry for Nintendo fans right now. Like you keep getting ass fucked and ass fucked and still hope for a brighter tomorrow. Hang in there. You're not as bad as Nintendo would have you believe.
Who fucking cares? it's fucking Fatal Frame, It's never ever been about the god damned fan service.
You people fucking suck, go play a previous Fatal Frame, i'm just glad this shit is getting localized
>Who cares? It's censorship of extra content that you aren't allowed to like because I say so!
Survival horror fans in general have been getting the shaft this past generation, pic related
Contemplate your life
Basically these ^
This does not bode well for FE fates or X.
>take out content for western release
>don't give us something else in exchange or at least reduce the price
That's just bad form tbh
>Reggie makes every translation decision
>not those incompetent fucks at the Treehouse
Reggie made some dumb decisions, but he clearly does not have the
foresight on the effects some of the changes Treehouse makes
>implying any of you were going to actually 'buy' it anyways
>europe gets a collectors edition physical release
>NA gets a butchered version, digital only
I feel sorry for american fans of the series, NoA is going out of their way to ruin the entire thing
Stop crying about it on your Tawainese cooking board and go stir the fucking pot with a petition. You people really think circle-jerking is gonna fix this? Make them acknowledge they fucked up.
>Vita bros up in arms
>Nintenslaves apologize and beg for more
Anon I've seen companies play this "we're holding this franchise hostage behind terrible things" game so many times.
Don't play ball. Maybe future games won't get localized, but it's better than giving someone money for something you don't want in a vain hope they'll give you what you do want in the future.
I mean you can boycott the game, but NoA clearly does not give a fuck whether or not this game sells. Seeing as how the digital format already turns away a massive amount of potential buyers.
>point out the censor fucking days ago
>HURR DURR WHERES YOUR SOURCE shitposters everywhere
go fuck yourself whoever parroted this bullshit, it was obvious the second they released the video showing the shitendo costumes
>The bikinis are replaced with Zelda's Hyrule Warriors outfit and Samus's Zero Suit.
Hmmm...well that's better than nothing I suppose but I'm kinda getting tired of Zero Suit Samus outfit being a custom bonus in every game now.
I like nintendo as a developer but NoA basically ruins anything they touch that isn't a E rated game.
I'm frankly amazed Bayo2 came out as it did. It's the only "mature" game I own from Nintendo from the last few years and that's at least partially because it's the only one they haven't set out to fuck up.
The games that Vita get would never even get localized on Nintendo. Nintendo still treats its consumers as kids.
I can't really be upset on behalf of the people who wanted to play this, but knowing they deliberate took out content sure means I wouldn't even want to check it out on the cheap.
Fatal Frame franchise has zero presence in the US market. It was clear there wasn't going to be a localization at all if not for the Europe market. Other than Silent Hill (and now not even) surviveal horror rarely do well in the western market. Shit, Amnesia would have been a mostly forgotten game if not for Pewdiepie. That is how osbcure the survival horror genre is in the west.
A Fatal Frame thread could go for maybe 20 posts max.
Suddenly Nintendo censors something and everyone is acting as if they cared about Fatal Frame. This happens with almost every game that gets censored. People love to get uppity over games they were never gonna play under the guise of "Oh well now I'm really really REALLY not gonna play it".
I hate censorship just as much as the next guy but lets be serious here. If the removal of the DLC skins in this game is enough to completely kill your interest in whatsoever, you weren't interested in it in the first place or you know Japanese in which case everything is just dandy for you anyway.
>Censorship is okay if I don't like the cut content!
Here, get triggered faggot.
Fuck off NoA. Go and butcher another game like you faggot hipsters love to do.
Remember when Samus used to wear a sports bra?
They should make her start wearing that again.
>localizers choosing what is and isn't okay for the player to see
>despite there already being a fucking esrb rating
>an M rating
I'm getting real sick of this shit.
The lewd stuff is the only thing they care about and the only thing those games have going for them. They couldn't care less about the gameplay as long as there are anime girls
I planned on getting it before. I would just import like I did for the wii ones, but my Wii U is NA and region locked so unless I wanna drop ~300 just to play a couple games my option is shitty NoA version or none. Digital only and censored seals the deal. I'm not gonna pay for a partial version of a product.
> People love to get uppity over games they were never gonna play under the guise of "Oh well now I'm really really REALLY not gonna play it".
Maybe because we don't want the same to happen to other Nintendo games? I'm not a big fan of FF by any means, but this shit still pisses me off.
To be fair, they censored every fatal frame game from 1~5, all of them being rated M. I think it's "tradition" thing. Though I would say it's a bad "tradition" thing. Seriously, we're paying money for this. Give us ALL the content.
>Buying a system for ONE DIGITAL ONLY game
I bet none of this fags here played the game or any fatal frame.
>M rated games getting content cut because it might offend people
>content so harmless that there is literally no way it could have possibly raised the rating to AO
for what fucking reason?
seriously, who does this benefit? All it means is that the people buying it get a lesser game and the people that get up in arms about censorship (which for something as niche as this is not an easily ignorable market) won't buy your game.
This is such a small thing and I can't wrap my head around how the hell NoA thought it would be a good idea. I just can't.
Bull fucking shit. Have you seen the sales chart for FF? That shit is pure fucking abysmal. Fuck, Until Dawn, the game you guys been shilling the hell out of for weeks only managed to rank 7th in sales and this somehow exceeds the developer's expectations to consider a sequel. 7th fucking place is apparently good enough for a game. That is just how horrible the survival horror market is in the west.
>censorship is still a thing for NA releases
Why fucking release it at all if you're just going to remove content you don't like? Fatal Frame is getting fucked by all the censorship that constantly comes out, and even Xenoblade Chronicles X looks like it got the same fucking treatment, we just need to see more of the damage.
How does one contact NoA? I tried sending them an e-mail but I got a bot response from them saying that they no longer accept e-mails to that address and to use the webform. The linked webform had absolutely nothing applicable to any kind of feedback, just stuff like repairs, account questions, etc.
Region locked. No importing allowed.
Why do people keep saying this? Is it because someone parroted that lie about the Bikinis missing from the PS2 game being cut content so much that people believed it?
>who does this benefit?
Those five SJWs on Twitter who have been harrassing NoA for months now.
>I like this game, but I won't buy it
it's region locked, yeah.
Region lock is the worst, most anti-consumer thing ever. I don't own a single JP or EU 3DS game and I have no intention of buying one, but I still have my 3DS set on tubehax solely so I don't have to deal with region lock in case something ever actually happens and I do get fucked in the ass by NoA.
Guess that's ok, I've been on the fence since Bayo and Smash are there, guess I have nothing else to look forward to.
I wanted to try this one, but the digital only shit and censoring is not for me.How are the ps2 games? Which is the best?
In case you wonder why, someone who follow Harper, Butts, Alexander, Mccintosh and Femfreq, got himself a place at NOA.
I actually think the Samus and Zelda costumes look better and are more tasteful than just skimpy clothing but I guess that just makes me a nintendrone and all the other meme names. Never much cared for them in Silent Hill or the first Resident Evil games either.
I hope this whole Nintendo TRANSFORMATION that they will talk about next year includes shit like this. I went from Nintendrone to getting mad as fuck in less than a year.
I still like the games, but it's hard to enjoy a game when sitting on a giant nintendo-branded dildo.
So does the American version have dual audio or not, someone just give me the word so I can finally be done with NoA forever.
>I love censorship! Fuck me more Nintendo!
Who's joining me?
>masturbating to video games
Seriously, nigger? Some people can enjoy erotica without immediately jacking off, believe it or not. Censorship is an instant "fuck off", digital only is an alarming thing when it's Nintendo and middling scores only prove that the game isn't anything worth bothering with.
>BAYONETTA WASN'T CENSORED
>WHERES YOUR SOURCE FAGGOT
>BURDEN OF PROOF IS ON YOU
>THE INCLUSION OF THE NINTENDO COSTUMES ISN'T PROOF
you people are honestly the stupidest pieces of shit and deserve a punch in the mouth
Just in case anyone who matters reads this: I was going to buy this game and now won't because of the censorship.
I have never played a FF game, but heard good things, and was willing to buy this because it's supposed to be a good, 3rd party, Nintendo exclusive title that would vary my library that currently consists of 100% colorful, lighthearted, family-friendly games.
Now, Nintendo removes the fucking sexual content because as an adult, I'm not even allowed to enjoy all the content in a game made with a 17+ rating. I love Nintendo, but when they do shit like this I hate them. They always triple-down on being as inoffensive and PC as possible. They have parental controls and they make them completely redundant by removing anything a parent might want to block.
in after all the apologists in this thread criticize those who wanted the bikini costumes as if it isn't ok to enjoy that or be upset that they're removed as a part of Nintendo's overbearing family-friendly-only attitude.
It's abysmal in all countries. Fatal Frame was never a big game but, it did sell more in the US. Until Dawn isn't even survival horror. It's David Cage Heavy Rain/Indigo with a horror twist. Capcom's re-release of REremake sold so much it broke records. There hasn't been a survival horror genre in the west since RE4, unless you count the butchering of Silent Hill.
Anon, XC X is getting hit harder with the puritan stick than this game
Dozens of armor sets are likely getting axed due to skimpiness
Just let go anon, WiiU is officially dead. Sell now before everyone else realizes and the market is saturated
Pretty much this. Kinda like the 3DS. All the games I have were already out by the time I got the console. Add maybe 1 or 2 after that. Everything else is just extra at this point.
What went wrong with the Treehouse? The localization division that gave us great translations like Superstar Saga, The Thousand Year Door,the original Animal Crossing (which was considered so based that NoJ retranslated it back into Japanese to rerelease it in Japan), Path of Radiance, Radiant Dawn?
Can we really pinpoint where in time the Treehouse started slipping?
To be fair, while some of these anons probably give zero shit about fatal frame, they do care about how NOA will ultimately treat X and FE fates.
This among a few other games is a good test to see what will occur in the future.
Reminds me of how Monster Rancher 4 replaced this monster from the Japanese version (a reference to the group that sang the game's theme song in that country) with a monster that said PSM on its ass.
>Rated M for Mature
>"OUTRAGE! CENSOR THESE OUTFITS NOW"
Only on Nintendo.
Though the bigger issue is being digital only.
Wait, slow down... They're DLC skins? So the game isn't even censored, they simply aren't bringing over DLC?
/v/... For real?
>naive retards seriously thought they wouldn't censor this
I'd say you fuckin dipshits should feel stupid, but I think you're dumb enough to not comprehend that emotion. All the signs were there, if you took the Nintendo dick out of your mouth for even a single second.
No matter what happen
Fatal frame 6 will never happen
You are completely missing the point.
People make an uproar over censorship so that devs will learn not to do it in the future. Regardless of game.
Also, I and plenty of other people are just entirely indifferent towards this game and only know it for the lewd pictures occasionally posted on /v/. Removing that means there's no incentive to buy the game based on the little we know about it.
>All the blood and gore is there
>Remove the bikini
If you want to blame anyone, blame the sjw for poisoning the well in their attempt to censor all forms of sexuality. If you fuckers had learned how to debate and won against them, then maybe they wouldn't have their hands tightly grasped around the game journalist's balls.
Reminder that some of you took part in this and now they're fucking you in the ass.
You weren't gonna 'buy' shit and they know it
So I know Fatal Frame IV got an English patch you could download for emulating, and since a fully functioning Wii U emulator is not far off, can we expect a fan translated uncensored version? Or a way to import the costumes into a downloaded US version?
GC-era Treehouse was the best. Apparently a lot of those people fucked off or got far better positions, and left Treehouse to become an echo chamber for NY hipsters and not much else.
No, anyone who has played Fatal Frame knows the skimpy outfits are never DLC, and this one didn't deviate. They're in the base game. Nintendo of America took them out because they believe even their rated mature games should shield virgin eyes from the horrors of the female body. But hey, muh body is ready, right?
>all the signs were there
>like the M rating
>the fact that several scenes that took place in a bathtub with the character being naked were still in, untouched
I don't know, you seem like the stupid one in this situation.
Costumes are not censored, reviewer just doesn't know how unlock them. You have to S-Rank all the levels before you can get them.
Slightly better than abysmal is pretty much abysmal. And there's barely any survival horror games in the west because there's barely a market for it. It's like selling air conditioner in Alaska. The west just doesn't like that type of games, it's all about the action for them. Hence why RE4 did so well, it's less horror and more action-packed.
>say they aren't going to censor anything
>shit that doesn't fly by the Cathedral of Treehouse will get "undershirts" and "under armor"
>or be replaced by Nintendo "cameo" armor
Goodbye fundoshi and bunny costumes, Mr.Clean wants a word with you
The problem is developers know that the uproar is being made by people who were never gonna buy the game in the first place as noted by the incredible sales of the past Fatal Frame games so you're really falling on deaf ears.
I just think it's unfortunate that the week long buzz surrounding the game ends up getting more attention than the game itself.
>If you fuckers had learned how to debate and won against them
>any sort of intellectual approach
I'd be mad if it wasn't replaced. But we get Samus (even sexier than the cut ones, in my opinion) and Zelda costumes. I love cross over shit, but there shouldn't really have been censorship.
But you're right, we shouldn't have to deal with this shit. NoA pulled the same shit with the Fire Emblem DLC. (FUCKING DLC)
I want this game, but shit, if you're going to censor stuff and have it be digital only. You're not going to give me an incentive to get it.
Hey. To be fair that year was a fantastic E3. Nintendo won that year.
It does indeed suck. I wasn't going to buy it anyway, but now I can pretend I'm making a statement by not buying it, instead of simply not caring.
If all of you people truly cared, you'd be making a petition of some sort, or boycotting. Until then, you're all just lazyass armchair warriors.
Everyone from the old localization team probably got canned or moved elsewhere for new blood.
It's funny to think that on the Japanese side, the new guys are doing fine,
but here, any game that isn't light-hearted or Mario will be fucked.
And AC still has worse writing now. Nothing really clever anymore.
The ESRB only had gore and violence, smartass. Anyone could tell that sexual content was conspicuously absent, and anyone who knows anything about the ESRB knows they would have had a conniption over sexy swimsuits. Despite that, retards clung to m-muh proof, even though that should be a smoking gun, assuming you weren't born with 47 chromosomes. Although considering these people were clearly console warrior fanboys, I suppose that is absolutely possible.
>anyone who knows anything about the ESRB knows they would have had a conniption over sexy swimsuits
Can you not read?
>the fact that several scenes that took place in a bathtub with the character being naked were still in, untouched
It literally takes more effort to remove these outfits than to keep them in. Think about that. Someone got paid to spend a few minutes finding the right file and setting a boolean to false, just so no pure American eyes would be tainted by these bikinis.
I wonder who's to blame for cutting content like this. Is it truly the company that translates en localizes the game, or do they get orders from Nintendo to cut any 'offensive' content? I can't imagine localizers have that much power over what is and isn't put in the western release.
RE4 did well because it was a new take on a old genre. The Evil Within did terrible because it's RE4 and it's oversaturated. The west wants something "new" and at this point, classic survival horror is so dead that it's new. Otherwise the RErelease wouldn't have done so well. There is such a thing as balance but, game makers have never understood that. FF is an abysmal sale, regardless of the location but, that doesn't mean you should take an axe to your market.
MFW XENOBLADE AND FIRE EMBLEM FATES IS NEXT TOP FUCKIGN KEK NINTENDO BABBIES BLOWN OUT OF THE WATER.
They're removing the skinship/amie option (where you get to pet character's faces and have them say lewd shit to you).
The customizable swimsuits are also being replaced with Mario/Luigi hats.
There's about a 5% chance all of the games listed there WON'T be censored, because all (Except Fatal Frame obviously) of those are at max T rated games, and this M rated game got censored.
We know pic related is a confirmed SJW. They're just keeping her leashed now so she doesn't throw shit everywhere publicly like she did when she released a list of people saying her ass looked good during one of the treehouse streams.
This one is tongue and cheek to the 4kids pokemon translation. So it's alright
Why the need for censorship? The game is already rated R
I know american censorship laws are a bit backwards in terms of nudity and violence, but cmon.
Doesn't matter, it's 2015, times have changed. I can play terrible video games involving scantily clad little girls on my Vita, sexualization is no longer this gigantic taboo, Nintendo is, like always, way behind the time. They were going to get an M rating regardless of what they did, literally no reason to censor.
I haven't even touched my Wii U in months
no wait I did
I bought mario maker and played it for a week and realized 90% of the random levels I got when playing were absolute horseshit made by some 14 year old in a few minutes
these fucks need to just release the NX already and take this embarrassment of a console out back and just fucking shoot it
I've read your 'arguments'. Quite frankly, you guys suck at them. And you're not trying to convince them, you're trying to convince everyone else but them. All you do is just rant and regurgitate images. Barely any of you actually know what it is you're arguing for and just tell people to watch someone else's argument, never mind the fact if their claims are factually correct or not. Shit, the moment someone brings up any sort of evidence, you resort to ad-hominems. It's just pathetic.
The problem is similar to that of why so many bad writers make games
If you are good enough you work in film, tv or book market while video games are seen as a lesser media. Some do really liek games and want to work in them but the majority failed everywhere else so ended up here
>they've been doing this horse shit for decades so that makes it okay
If anything it's worse now since, while the censorship isn't as excessive as it was then, it's far easier to notice. any old asshole couldn't go online when, for example, Super Mario Bros 2 came out and find out they got a completely different game from Japan. Today something as simple as a bikini getting cut is headline news (depending on the website.)
Dude FE: Fates is porbably the most lewd FE game ever made. I kid you not. The dialogue is literally hentai level. And the 3d models and images are way more revealing than awakening. It's probably the most likely candidate for censorship. And as is, it should be rated M, but nintendo knows it's audience is T, so it' will lower the esrb by censoring shit like Tr4sh
Well fuck you too Nintendo, I'm keepin mah money
petitions do about as much as changing your facebook avatar when you want to "support" something.
The only thing that really matters is money, maybe bombarding nintendo with messages on social media. I sent them a complaint and I'm not buying the game, that's all you really can do.
Sure, if you buy a nip console.
The WiiU is getting split wide open soon anyway, all the devs have jumped ship so there's no incentive for hackers to keep quiet. You can already play a wide range of games for free.
>Dude FE: Fates is porbably the most lewd FE game ever made. I kid you not
I know, that's why I was considering buying it. If it's going to be censored then I won't. Pls tell me ;_;
If you don't want Mario and Luigi, you're gay as fuck.
See, I don't think of this as an "SJW" issue, I look at it and see NoA being NoA. They've always pulled stuff like this, because they're trying to be the Disney, kid-friendly company. They've been like this since the 80s.
Of course, /v/ is just looking for any reason to attack their current boogeyman, so it's a SJW issue here.
As usual, the people who don't care about or like something are perfectly fine with censorship because "ROFL it makes people I don't like mad, wheeeee!". Never a thought to how allowing anything to be censored means we'll reach a point where everything is censored.
Brianna Wu went directly to the United Nations to demand censorship of the internet. Yes, it was rather silly, but the fact that there are people who will do something like that and be seriously considered should be a warning sign to all of you.
Until Dawn is ranked 7th in sales despite all the shilling. 7th. And this is somehow exceeding the developer's expectations. That is how horrible the survival horror market is. Saying it's so dead it loops back into not dead is just delusional.
>If you don't want Mario and Luigi, you're gay as fuck.
Mario and Luigi can stay in Mario games. I don't know who the fuck decided that every WiiU game needs to have some kind of Nintendo cosplay tribute, but he needs to be fired the fuck out.
I forget the treehouse stream it was, but she released a list of comments from people during the stream who were doing the usual stuff 'Blank is hot!' 'I want to fuck Blank' etc to complain about it
The coup de grace is she added a trigger warning.
voids in place of panties etc
but that's mostly because CERO or w/e the japanese ESRB is, first thing they do when checking a game is flipping all the models upside down to see if there are visible pantsu
The problem is that the game is already rated mature, so unless you just remove 90% of the content the game will never be kid-friendly. Its pointless effort, unless someone is trying to push some agenda.
>If you fuckers had learned how to debate
/v/'s concept of debating is to divide the world into absolutist black&white categories, then hurl insults and buzzwords around like a fucking five year old.
I wouldn't count on this debate style swaying another outside a kindergarten playground.
Every Nintendo exclusive there is the usual group of outraged people that must make things looks worse than they are. It's tiresome.
Importing fucks local economies in other regions to the point where prices would be significantly higher for non-importers. It keeps prices lower in countries where games are already stupid expensive, if people just imported because it's cheaper local prices get fucked even more, making games more expensive for everyone there. You need to look at the bigger picture, not just the price you pay for an individual game. Hypothetical example, Canadians have to pay $80 for some games? If lots if them imported instead, that price would be even higher because retailers are selling fewer units due to less demand so prices go up.
You could be outside NoA's offcie in Redmond right now, with a bigass sign, screaming that they are monsters for censoring shit. And you could be doing it with a lot of other people. You could be bombarding their shit on social media and signing both physical and digital petitions. But you aren't. It shows that for all your whining, this is clearly not a very important thing for you. It's just a minor inconvenience that you're blowing out of proportion.
My desire to play Fatal Frame vastly outweighs my disappointment at digital bikinis being cut.
I mean, yeah, NoA needs to get its goddamn shit together, but at the end of the day, I just want to play videogames.
I don't think you know what survival horror means and everyone knows by now that youtube views do not translate into sales. I'm just gonna assume you're shitposting. Good day, fam.
Except that claim falls flat when you remember that Palutena has her panties on full display, with a hip-high slit in her dress to show them off, and she even does a stripper pole-twirl taunt.
Sakurai was the one who censored Peach, Zelda, and Rosalina because he got tired of people uploading upskirt shots in Melee and Brawl. Palutena was made specifically for such pictures because she was in a game he made.
nintendo dont you dare to fuck with FE
Stop being such a prude about fanservice.
As expected of Nintendo.
The FF series is as good as dead...
You fucktard, I'm not saying your argument is shit. I'm saying your debate tactics is shit. Seriously, this is the kind of shit I was talking about. You're not even refuting my points, you just went straight for the ad-hominems without even understanding what my post even meant.
People rarely go out of their way to work that hard, however. Or else, why the fuck does it work fine for Sony? They haven't natively region locked shit since PS2. The other guy is right, it's literally just anticonsumer faggotry, Nintendo is looking to collect as many shekels as possible. Which wouldn't be so bad if these useless faggots wouldn't cut content when porting to the west.
>If lots if them imported instead
Yeah see, that's the thing. As much as people bitch about censorship how many sells do you think, for example, the average Disgaea game gets in the states compared to people importing it?
Importing can fuck up your economy if it's rampant but it isn't, at least not with this kind of thing.
And that isn't even getting into the fact that a lot of games don't get localized. I like kamen rider, if Battride War II only came out on the Wii U instead of also being on PS3 I'd be shit out of luck but since the PS3 isn't region locked, I can play it. Someone, somewhere, got some money that would have just gone unspent otherwise.
>game is rated mature
>remove mature content for some reason
>game is still mature rated
what's the fucking point?
I wouldn't put it past NoA to be removing this just so they don't get heat from feminists in America.
Fates will be hit far harder.
Say goodbye to your petting minigame.
They didnt play our copy, we still have a chance.
Quite a few.
I cant remember how to draw them, but I can read 200 kanji. Which is fine, because I have no intention of writing Japanese.
People should ask Nintendo to put it back in, using Bayonetta 2 as an example. They didnt cenor that, and everyone loved it, so they know their games have people who can deal with this. Even if I wouldnt use it (I wont) I dont like content being removed.
>>tfw learning nip and soon I will be free of this nightmare
I wish. I own a wii-u, and would need to buy another thanks to faggots region locking games.
im about to import FF
is there any news of a homebrew channel on the wiiu yet?
>this entire thread.
If you're so butthurt about it, how about sending nintendo an actual reasonable e-mail/tweet about why they shouldn't censor the bikinis? Oh right, /v/, you guys are idiot spergs who can't even form a coherent thought without using some sort of cursing or internet speak.
Im in "play the game as developer intended it to be" team.
Fuck people thinking they can changed how the creators want it to be played because they don't feel comfortable with some things themselves.
The main issue i see with NoA is that they literally see Nintendo hardware as kid-friendly and as a result takes censorship into account for every fucking game, including M titles that kids wont play anyway.
The consumers are determined by the way companies advertise themselves, and Nintendo could be for EVERYONE if only they advertised themselves that way.
But no, literally every fucking ad or trailer from NoA comprises kids and families being happy and shit.
They dug their own graves by singling that demographic out themselves and wonder why the Wii U aint hot shit with the general "gamer" public.
In the Japanese version of Splatoon, there was a 'Ink the Squid Kid!' minigame while you waited for the match to start. You basically had to squirt your ink on these kids faces like whack-a-mole. It was changed to a 'press a to jump higher' game in the international release.
I know you're not old enough to remember the NES and SNES era, but Nintendo did stuff like this all the goddamn time.
I don't even know what fucking point you're trying to make, but then again you're retarded.
But these two UK(?) based review sites claim:
>having said that, some of the unlockable outfits are ridiculously pervy
>They wear revealing clothing (you can even unlock bonus outfits which are little more than underwear)
>Other games remove features, game modes and story content
>No one cares, Fallout 4 will be GOTY, MGS5 is GOAT, Halo 5 looks hype
>One Wii U game has two costumes removed due to retarded, unnecessary censorship
>Nintendo is literally satan incarnate
You guys kept telling me this was NintendoGAF. All I ever see is western/non-Nintendo games getting free passes for shitting down your throat on a daily basis and any tiny little thing Nintendo does is put under a microscope. Seriously, why was there not this much backlash to Halo 5 cutting half it's features or MGS5 missing shit loads of cut content?
I did. Actually 2. First was about digital. Second is now about this. Nintendo passed the buck about digital to Koei Tecmo and Koei Tecmo passed the buck back to Nintendo. Who knows where the assholes at Ninfuckdo send me on this one?
You're pathetically naive if you think sending emails does anything. Especially with the game out in only a couple of days. This dreck is going to happen, no matter what anyone here does, even if there was a concerted effort to petition.
What really needs to be done is the simplest act. Just don't buy it. You can send an email saying why you won't buy it, perhaps that will have some punch, but the action of not giving these retards money stays the same.
The entire thing was a joke anyways
Their in house localization team is already compromised by socjus, theres no hope for NoA
8-4 (yes, that 8-4 where Dina shit up MN9) is a hive of the fuckers, so XCX is fucked beyond salvation, they are handling FE Fates too iirc so say goodbye to the lewd amie minigame, all remotely sexual content and swimsuit costumes, expect Carmilla to be extremely toned down, etc. And expect not a single cent discount to make up for the missing swathes of content. Do not buy, preorder or discuss the official english localization of FE Fates, and instead get the english translated JP version. And if you don't have a hacked 3ds, theres never a better time to do so. No region lock, try before you get ripped off, homebrew, and as a statement its a big fuck you to Nintendo.
>This censorship seems silly for a game rated as Mature 17+ by the ESRB,
>but it certainly doesn't detract from the overall experience of the game
>doesn't detract from the experience
It's like Nintendo fans are afraid to call out NoA.
The same shit will keep happening unless the actual fans who buy and shill the games demand uncensored, unchanged versions.
>marry Lucina in Awakening
>now I feel like I'm getting cucked by the fart goddess who will turn her into a lesbian
>Various costumes and accessories can be unlocked post-game, such as Zelda and Zero Suit Samus, while ample wobble physics, wet clothing and some surprisingly curvy ghosts also ring true to the series' more dubious hallmarks.
Now that this will sell even worse, it will show NOA that NA was never interested in FF and NA will never get a FF again. Since nintendo consoles are always region locked, we'll never get to play ff again in the future.
I honestly want to know.
Sadly region blocking mean you cant even get the japanese version to play.
Fuck Nintendo, I'm fucking done with my splatoon machine. They can make a spat loli game but not a few bathing outfits?
>and instead get the english translated JP version
The translation patch is not going to be finished. The translation team gave up, no one wants to work on it anymore, and the project is confirmed dead. Summer ended and they all went back to school/work. The leader was literally "the idea guy".
They are refusing to release a final patch that translates a few more chapters of the game because they want to exclusively give it to Youtube LPers so that they gain publicity for their channel from people that want to see the original uncensored JP version of Fates.
Yeah, fuck you. You fuckers started this whole shit with your journalistic integrity crap, and now that you fucked it up for the rest of us by shitting up your debate, we have to pay the price of having everyone calling us misogynistic on having anything remotely resembling fanservice. Fuck you, you miserable piece of shit.
All we need now is Americans to have no Japanese voice acting.
>Due to the game being digital only, we decided to remove this option to save space on their HD.
It would be a unholy trinity of everything wrong with localization teams.
This, just like Bravely Default's Bravo Bikini is perfectly fine. Spats are always a bonus.
But anon, gore isnt "problematic" or contributing to "toxic masculinity".
You know damn well SJW's are the driving force here.
Every Japanese dev should speak English. That way they can see people shitting up their works, turning it into a soapbox. I would be fucking pissed.
Don't you know. Kamiya threatened to block Reggie from living if they had NoA translate the game.
Bayo was done in-house by Platinum, maybe NoA helped proofread certain things, but nothing hands on.
But nintendo have been the only console manufacturer who've not been making a loss on selling their consoles till the wii u.
The only way Wii U turned a profit was if someone also bought a game with it.
You are right though, no one wants to make a loss ever.
Its one way of understanding why other console companies do subscription services and other "non consumer friendly" practices.
The only thing that I hope comes out of this Fatal Frame fiasco is that the game will be at least 10/20 bucks cheaper.
But its not bloody likely. Not for a while anyway.
Then again, Phoenix Wright 5 cost 40 AUS bucks rather than the standard 59 (wii u usually 69).
So who knows.
I've never played a Fatal Frame game before, I wonder if this will be any good. The fan service doesn't interest me because Webms exist.
Still a bummer for any of my fellow anons who are luck enough to be living by themselves/don't have to share a TV with any house mates and have to explain what they're playing to any of their local normals.
You know, I can sort of understand BD. The DLC far less so, because it's, you know, DLC.
But all the latter items on that list are flat out unacceptable because they're (or are most likely to get with regards to Fates) M rated games.
Thought about giving it a try, but I can't enjoy a game with cut content. It could have been a setting that let's you play with no sound, and I'd still be urged by it being removed. It's just the way I am.
>People being worried Xenoblade X is gonna be affected by this.
I wouldn't fall into panic just yet. think about this:
These were, like, two costumes and in a digital only release. Xenoblade X has tons of costumes and ahd already went gold so discs has already been printed.
There's no fucking way NoA is wasting so much budget in redesign countless of models this close to release.
>tfw ppl are taking a stand against the bikini shit and not for the fact noa lowballed everyone a physical release for a digital on a shit gig system
If this is the caliber of localization we can expect, I kind of just give up anyway. I want the complete game, not the scraps we get where any amount of titillation gets butchered so that soccer moms can breathe a sigh of relief.
I was almost in agreement with you until
>Of course, /v/ is just looking for any reason to attack their current boogeyman, so it's a SJW issue here.
People want to play the same game they were advertised and saving money for.
That's not a modest bathing suit, it's a sexy lingerie. WHICH MAKES IT EVEN WORSE.
We've already ragged on them for digital only countless times, there's not enough FF fans to make a dent.
Not him, but I'm going to get Xenoblade X regardless of censorship because I'm interested by the gameplay enough to overlook it. I can't say the same for the other two, though.
I don't like digital releases but I can understand why you would make one for a niche title like this, helps cut down on costs and make it more profitable.
Cutting content is just unacceptable though. There's no excuse for this kinda shit.
>EU versions are still and tact AND have a physical release
Just pre-ordered it.
>Jap players don't get Nintendo costumes.
>NA players don't get lewd costumes, digital only.
>EU gets LE physical and probably all the costumes.
Europe hates Nintendo. And Europe is where they had actual legal issues pertaining to underage girls and clothing with the DOA3D incident.
THIS SHIT DOESN'T MAKE ANY FUCKING SENSE.
>Fates will be censored
>jewing you extra hardcore by splitting the game into 3 parts
If anyone buys this abomination of a game you are supporting all that is wrong with the industry today and should hang yourself. Nothing will happen unless we as consumers vote with our wallets.
Considering the narrative of game industry is controlled by the media and the pro-gg side did an abysmal job of defending their argument to the point the media (and the moral crusaders) called the entire fanbase as misogynistic, it's extremely hard to put in any sort of fanservice without looking like an ass by said media. I mean, who's going to defend the fanservice? /v/?
>Europe hates Nintendo
No we dont, we just dont prefer one platform over other.
Those are just words.
In here we are talking about tons of mdoels and their behaivors in cutscenes.
If this was a digital release like Fatal Frame I could see it cause, but this is going on disc which takes it's own chunk in the process and once it's done you can't make any changes AT ALL.
FE Fates is probably fucked tho, since that's probably still in localization development.
>Comparing children who turn into squids with half naked ladies walking around spooky places
C'mon anon, thats a bit of a stretch don't you think?
Lingerie doesn't quite count as a bathing suit.
Its all about context, in case you haven't forgotten what that word implies.
Shut the fuck up, and just take a look at the number of people in this thread who are blaming SJWs for this. This is just Nintendo being Nintendo. It still sucks, but people who are only blaming the SJWs are wrong. Nintendo has always done shit like this and NINTENDO is the problem.
Can't wait until the game actually comes out and people start posting screencaps of the shitty memes shoved in randomly into the "translation".
You know it'll happen.
Probably direct orders from NoJ not to fuck with anything.
Remember Platnium originally was going to give the Link costume for Bayonetta an undershirt since it made her more modest and more in line with the Link Costume. The Nintend rep watching the project then comments 'but that's not in the spirit of how Bayonetta normally dresses, it would be better to remove the shirt'.
>but it certainly doesn't detract from the overall experience of the game,
Not supporing NoA, fuck them, but it seems you al did not read that line. The maingame, the actual thing you pay for, is still perfectly intact. The same may can not be said about xenos localisation.
That's not really correct since Platinum actually didn't want to put in excessive fanservice for the Nintendo character costumes and Nintendo surprised them by asking for more fanservice for it.
I'm not buying this either now, but the other 99% of the game isn't "scraps" the only things cut were two costumes. If you cut that and what's left is "scraps" then you had three costumes, not a video game.
