ZippyDSMleeE. Zachary Knight:Being forced to edit your work by eithe the jealous or the hatefull may not be defacto censorship but it will still leave a bad taste in your mouth...tho tho we have really yet to cross that bridge. Still have have littlehopeforhumanity.03/23/2015 - 1:34pm
E. Zachary KnightSo Jim Sterling makes a great video about the difference between Censorship and Editing. - 8:48am
IvresseWhy does it need to be Link anyway? Couldn't there be a Zelda game where the main protaganist isn't Link this time? Or are Nintendo worried about the typical knee-jerk 'It's not Link, therefore this game sucks'03/23/2015 - 8:40am
ZippyDSMleeSora-Chan: I dunno on one hand I think its fine if all games had a gender choice, but forced options tends to be mehy IMO. Sure story drives everything and most stories are dumb enough for male only leads but I think that is just a crutch.03/23/2015 - 8:10am
Sora-ChanThough that isn't saying that everyone needs to have a female lead in all games to make up for that. They should do what they feel best for the story.03/23/2015 - 7:15am
Sora-ChanI really only disagree with the statement of the "opposite gender relation" line. I feel the "relation" issue is primarily there due to the male to female character ratio is at like 100 to 1, if not worse. Ignoring MMOs obviously.03/23/2015 - 7:13am
ZippyDSMleeTho with Nintendo being in a bastion of equality and all.....03/23/2015 - 2:17am
ZippyDSMleeIt would be best if it was a choice made by the player but I cannot see much wrong with it, other than the cries of millions butthurt misogynists …03/23/2015 - 2:17am
ZippyDSMlee Interesting post, I see no issue with Link being female, hell I have no issue with them swapping Link and Zelda character roles.03/23/2015 - 2:16am
ZippyDSMleeon perfect body types.03/23/2015 - 2:16am
ZippyDSMleeI can genreally stand the larger breast sizes but somethings its just stupid, I love Sekirei good setup and story for what it is but god the character proportions are just horrible, Freezing is a bit better larger cast more body types even if it focuses .03/23/2015 - 2:16am
Andrew EisenThat likely has no bearing but again, it depends on what the actual criticism is.03/22/2015 - 9:25pm
Matthew Wilsonplace in highschool. there is allot of stuff like that I see by western critics.03/22/2015 - 9:19pm
Matthew Wilson@AE you see alot of critics of after Japanese games for the main cast being school children, but if they understood Japanese culture, they would know that high school is looked back on with a lot of fondness, and that is why allot of games and anime take03/22/2015 - 9:18pm
Andrew EisenFor example, I require absolutely zero understanding of Japanese culture to criticize how the characters' busts are drawn and animated.03/22/2015 - 8:28pm
Andrew EisenNot necessarily but it I imagine it depends on what's being criticized and what the criticism is.03/22/2015 - 8:22pm
Matthew Wilson@AE I agree, but if you are going to do good criticism, you need to understand the culture of the place it comes from.03/22/2015 - 8:11pm
Andrew EisenI don't know what anyone's saying about the game/show but for what it's worth: comments such as "stuff like that is cool in their culture" and "there are worse things" do not shield anything from criticism.03/22/2015 - 7:56pm
ZippyDSMleeNo soul eater not is the yuri version of Soul Eater ><, And Senran Kagura is not that bad Queens Blade is far worse....03/22/2015 - 7:07pm
WymorenceThe hell did I just watch from that link...? It's like a yuri version of Soul Eater... O_o03/22/2015 - 5:57pm
Matthew Wilsonps nether can twitter for that matter.03/22/2015 - 5:36pm
Matthew Wilsonit isnt that he is giving Tumblr crap, its that japan is ok culturally with stuff like this. Tumblr can not understand cultures outside of the US.03/22/2015 - 5:35pm
Andrew EisenThat's what I was referring to too.03/22/2015 - 5:11pm
MaskedPixelanteI think he's talking about Senran Kagura, there was an anime of that.03/22/2015 - 5:08pm
Andrew EisenIt's an anime too? Huh, didn't realize. Although, I should have guessed as I've never seen a stitch of gameplay. I don't even know what genre it is!03/22/2015 - 4:47pm
ConsterI'm a Tumblr user, and I said 'why the hell does this show ONLY focus on showing off everyone's oversized tits?' when I dropped the anime after about 10 minutes, so stuff like that, I guess.03/22/2015 - 4:46pm
Andrew EisenWhat do the Tumblr trolls say?03/22/2015 - 4:33pm
MaskedPixelante The creator of Senran Kagura gives Tumblr trolls the finger with a new IP.03/22/2015 - 4:09pm
Matthew Wilson@zipp if that was shortly after the game came out I would agree, but it was not the case. target was going to take it off shelves shortly anyways, they just used the petition as a excuse to do it. as I said they will carry gta6. it sells to well not too.03/22/2015 - 2:21pm
Andrew EisenYes, the petition is dumb. Yes, the authors and most of the signatories don't know what they're talking about. No one's arguing otherwise. But a store deciding not to carry a particular product is still not censorship.03/22/2015 - 1:05pm
ZippyDSMleeAndrew Eisen:A rose by any other name.... and how many hundreds of thousands shop at the local stores who do not give a damn about fake violence...its ridiculous... listening to the hollow and vain squeaky wheel types help no one.03/22/2015 - 12:55pm
ZippyDSMleeMatthew Wilson: Maybe but it still happened though and its close enough to make me lose more faith in humanity.03/22/2015 - 12:53pm
Andrew Eisen50,000 people said "I don't want Target to sell a year-old game." Target said okay. That's not censorship even if the petition itself was a load of disingenuous crap.03/21/2015 - 6:26pm
Matthew Wilson@zipp that game was not gunna sell manny more coppies anyways, and I will bet you they will carry gta6.03/21/2015 - 5:48pm
ZippyDSMleeMatthew Wilson: Dose not matter really, the store removed it for "reasons" other than governmental interference.03/21/2015 - 5:44pm
Matthew Wilson@zipp it wasnt wallmart, it was target AU, not the same company as US target.03/21/2015 - 4:56pm
ZippyDSMleeSo the wallmart GTA 5 ban incited by prostitute groups was not brought about by the groups ability to wage war via social media?03/21/2015 - 4:26pm
Andrew EisenZippy - What is not in all cases? What has not happened yet? What the hell are you talking about?03/21/2015 - 11:28am
ZippyDSMleeIt's not happened yet(MK and Overwatch are marketing tactics than anything else) but I have little hope in humanity so meh.03/21/2015 - 11:23am
ZippyDSMleeAndrew Eisen:Not in all cases.....03/21/2015 - 11:20am
Matthew Wilson@ae agreed03/21/2015 - 11:19am
Andrew EisenOh, devs listening to progressive (or any other) viewpoints, agreeing and adjusting their games accordingly is also not censorship.03/21/2015 - 10:56am
Andrew EisenStill, conflating the two makes for an interesting comparison.03/21/2015 - 10:53am
Andrew EisenGranted, he doesn't provide context for that statement in the video so if you don't follow his work, it's understandably not clear exactly what he's talking about at that moment.03/21/2015 - 10:47am
Andrew EisenRegardless, that's not what he's referring to. He's referencing blocking people on Twitter, closing comments sections on YouTube and venues cancelling the appearance of personalities who say something controversial. Those things are not censorship.03/21/2015 - 10:45am
Andrew EisenMechaTama31 - People who speak anonymously or not at all for fear of becoming targets are not censored. Chipman is not saying it's meaningless, it's just not censorship.03/21/2015 - 10:44am
ZippyDSMleemade into targets by the extremes which is the worst but it’s hard to tell who’s who half the time thus its best to stop the arguing.03/21/2015 - 10:18am
ZippyDSMleeMechaball: The misogynists or the feminazis? Kidding aside the random feminist(equal treatment not removal/replacement of skimpy armor) and random mostly male consumer(hates change and pushy moralists) seem to be shouted down now and then, a few are 03/21/2015 - 10:18am
MechaTama31I wonder if he would say that to the people who speak anonymously, or not at all, for fear of becoming targets. Their voices have been successfully suppressed, and the government had nothing to do with it.03/21/2015 - 10:00am
ZippyDSMleeWe also do not have any real good examples of it working well like we do of normal moral crusades. It is mostly misplaced hysteria. My tinfoil hat aside with humans being what they are things will become worse it’s just a matter of time.03/21/2015 - 9:11am
ZippyDSMleeAndrew Eisen: Thats what I got from it as well. He's done a couple pieces on censorship before and that’s pretty much his take on things. Now IMO you can technically pressure the industry to do X,Y or Z but it is haphazard at best.03/21/2015 - 9:11am
Andrew EisenThey are real ways (or at least, attempts) to silence people. No one's suggesting otherwise. He said gov't censorship is "the only kind of censorship with any meaning or teeth."03/21/2015 - 1:45am
MechaTama31They are not the exact same idea, no, but I just find it hard to reconcile believing those kinds of intimidation, harassment, and shaming tactics to be genuinely harmful (I agree), and yet to also think that they are not "real" ways to silence people.03/21/2015 - 1:04am
ZippyDSMleeAE:thanks ^^03/20/2015 - 7:07pm
Andrew EisenZippy - Here you go: - 7:05pm
ZippyDSMleeMechaball:Whats the vid link I'd like to see the context for myself.03/20/2015 - 6:59pm
Matthew Wilsontech firms are realizing high rent in SF it making it hard to recruit talent.03/20/2015 - 6:44pm
Andrew EisenMechaTama31 - You're conflating two different ideas but it's still an interesting observation when put like that.03/20/2015 - 6:42pm
Matthew Wilson facebook is doing something like this too. even companies are getting tired of high rent costs lol.03/20/2015 - 6:40pm
MechaTama31in the middle of a video that is kind of about how real and damaging the silencing tactics of a certain non-government group of people are.03/20/2015 - 6:01pm
MechaTama31AE: Regarding the GameOverthinker video, I find it interesting that he throws in a statement that government censorship is the only meaningful kind,03/20/2015 - 6:01pm
Matthew Wilson this is interesting, and worth a read.03/20/2015 - 5:59pm
ZippyDSMleeprh99: Ya it is. Just got my crap put up on ebay,I can do 10 for 6$ easily. Shipping will be half that at the most. Need to see how bad shipping is might can then drop it a buck or too but it has to cover the envelopes and mailers.03/20/2015 - 5:41pm
prh99Wow, $2 per disc, that a bit exorbatent.03/20/2015 - 5:35pm
ZippyDSMleeI've done about 5 of my own and about 20 for friends so far. The ebay charges are insane like 4$ for 2 discs 0_o03/20/2015 - 5:12pm
prh99I don't have anywhere near that many to do, maybe one or two a year. Doing small figure eights with a finger or two and fairly quickly produces decent and even results.03/20/2015 - 5:05pm
ZippyDSMleeprh99: Ya but its harder to do 3 or 9 in a day and uniformity is tricky.03/20/2015 - 4:43pm
prh99I just use rubbing compound or tooth paste if I am out. Though it does take more elbow grease.03/20/2015 - 4:05pm

ZippyDSMleeLook I am getting more coherent by the year! *head desk* maybe in another 10 years I will have this grammar thing figured out >< LOL03/20/2015 - 12:00pm
E. Zachary KnightThe thing that kills me about that trailer is that the developer claims to be making it for EVERY PLATFORM EVER!!!!!03/20/2015 - 11:27am
MaskedPixelante A reupload of the Skate Man video, because the devs have removed all traces of this game from the internet.03/20/2015 - 11:00am

Matthew WilsonTB talks Atari blocks TxK release, Nintendo NX, Jim Sterling's DMCA - 10:14am
Sora-ChanIt should be noted that what I said in that last shout, was going off of what Sterling said in his video about this incident.03/20/2015 - 2:33am
Sora-Chan1. the video taken down was him reviewing the greenlight trailer. 2. the game and the dev have disappeared with no trace, so it's possible they just wanted to remove all trace of it ever being a thing. eitherway, still not a good move on their part.03/20/2015 - 1:51am
Andrew EisenThis dev seems to know that. He's just being willfully spiteful. Not that that's any better.03/20/2015 - 12:58am
Matthew WilsonI heard about that earlier. devs need to learn they can not get away with this kind of stuff.03/20/2015 - 12:33am
Wymorence - Another dev's decided to do a copyright claim against Jim Sterling for pointing out the absolute turd their game was on Greenlight03/20/2015 - 12:07am
Matthew Wilson that looks very good for prealpha footage. tbf it looked good when I played it at pax prime as well. I am surprised CCP is building a full game around it, and not just releasing it as a bunch of mp maps.03/19/2015 - 10:58pm
MaskedPixelanteBecause that would make all the sense.03/19/2015 - 9:09pm
Matthew Wilson@mask I am amazed sega has not hired that studio to make the next sonic game.03/19/2015 - 9:00pm
Andrew EisenMark Kern, a man who has recently been complaining that sites like VG247 aren't giving him a platform to speak, started his own blog. Comments are not enabled. - 8:31pm
MaskedPixelanteOn the plus side, if you're a fan of Sonic games, you've got the Wii U version of Freedom Planet to look forward to.03/19/2015 - 7:48pm
Andrew EisenOh sure, the idea is cool but the execution appears (appears, mind you) to be really, really crap and that saddens the hell out of me.03/19/2015 - 5:56pm
Matthew WilsonI respect microsoft for letting people use the assets. its smart to let fans do fan projects if the devs are not going to make a new game.03/19/2015 - 5:31pm
Andrew EisenAs a big fan of Conker's Bad Fur Day, I find this kind of depressing: - 5:13pm
Matthew WilsonI hope they can, but the last 10 years have been not good for sonic games.03/19/2015 - 3:58pm
Andrew EisenInteresting perspective on how online nastiness may have evolved from the fight against gov't censorship of video games. - 3:58pm
Andrew Eisen(This coming from a guy who doesn't like ANY Sonic games.)03/19/2015 - 3:55pm
Andrew EisenGood Sonic games are better than no Sonic games so I'm going to hope for the former.03/19/2015 - 3:54pm
Matthew Wilson@AE because I am a realist, and I know that will not happen. The best Sonic game in recent years was not even a Sonic game. the game is called Freedom Planet.03/19/2015 - 3:53pm
Andrew EisenWhy not hope for them to start making good Sonic games already?03/19/2015 - 3:48pm
Matthew Wilsonhope they stop making sonic games already. - 3:41pm
IvresseAm still kinda hoping for a Zone of the Enders sequel myself...03/19/2015 - 11:40am
