Just a heads up, one of the comi episodes has been cut. So much for all the content....

A l L t H e C o N t E n T !

I mean to be fair to SEGA (not saying it isn't dumb though) there are children playing the game despite the M rating.

@NotWhoUThink Such things should obviously be between the child and their parent(s). Shouldn't surprise anyone that children are going to play M rated games, so they need to really double down on the censorship to crush all unfortunate implications and i do mean CRUSH with great conviction. Also rework the entire game and especially all emotes just in case someone uses them for inappropriate things. Which is to say, randomly half-assed changes are not going to do jack. I personally don't care since i'm not going to read this anyway, but seems the censorship is completely without any rhyme or reason. Unless the point is to get the most obvious things covered and then let the kids do what they want with the rest so SEGA can cover their own ass. Actually yeah, that sounds about right. Well, there we have it folks.

Please return to your containment thread folks 😉

@Yggranya Never underestimate how dumb people can be when making decisions.

Alright.

That’s a shame, I actually liked the story so far

Oh wow! really?, The story was getting to be quite interesting and this seems, weird I guess? Then again , in many games that I have gotten for instance my good old NEO-GEO system one my favorite games like "Samurai Spirits" ( I think the U.S. Version is called Samurai Showdown..?), U.S. censorship is also evident, for instance, Like when I play Mai in the JP version, Blood and gore is shown, along with Mai's chest All over the place versus the U.S. version were blood and gore is removed and Mai movements are toned down to what seems like.. some sort of non-living being? Yah- I get that the U.S. versions is really good at taking away the immersion that we all want, Come to think of it, What would PSO2 NA be with that type of immersion? I bet the playerbase would be greater that what it already is.

Not to bash the PSO2 Comi artist here, but if Global really is whiny about the "need" to censor (as JP rolls their eyes), then there's still a way to do the gag without sending the rabid Karen Rappies to screech on the site.

Since this is a friend avatar special, you can still have the upskirt gag.

You'd need a ray of light censor gag within the gag, and change the way Mitarashi sees the panties by having Tetra fighting in front with a split second panty shot gag.

You know, like, "Curse you ray of light, a split second of blue was flashing before my eyes!"

But really, having to remove an artist's work, let alone request a redraw altogether is a giant pain. Did they even get paid as compensation?

Does SEGA even know their audience? Because the audience is certainly mature enough for an anime trope panty gag.

That’s my take, too. We’ve got barely there bikinis and stripper poles but we can’t handle a panty gag? Uh ok Sega.

@Milk

Wait until we get into anime trap jokes for NGS, all Karen Rappy hell will break loose on our sacred Photonsexuality.

@NotWhoUThink Not to be an ass but the internet is not a kindergarden, if children play an M rating it's the parents responsibility for that not the service provider. Because if that were the case, might as well ban the internet because kid can just casually search for porn and get ton of result in seconds

I like games having an English translation but really hate when it's localized servers being placed in US because of no reasons censorship either from the company managing it in US or the fear of SJW from developers side

@Nope21 And I’m not saying you’re wrong because I absolutely agree on the points you made. However the point I’m trying to make is people can be dumb and can make dumb decisions. This is simply the result of a dumb decision made to cater to kids who shouldn’t be playing the game in the first place. Nothing more nothing less.

Don't you guys have a thread in suggestions about censorship that you've been posting in for the past 4-5 months?
