Not rid them pressure them/ cow them I was using hyperbole
^ Well seems like their account is back as of now. (Youtube's automated report system messed up?)
YouTube needs to watch some of the K-pop music videos that are posted on there before taking action against Marvelous.
That was quick
Youtube should block every pop-artist like Rehanna and similars every time they post a video, because it's the same thing...
Oh bu they feel offended by japanese animation... that's "lacist"
Interesting opinion on the topic of censorship
Can someone tell me if this is legal or not?
short of handing me a copy of war & peace i'd say that is the penultimate tl;dr but yeah probably idk man it was really long to get into details
is there a forum for lawyers
i bet lawyers can read super fast, just super super fast
This is news to me
Probably, sure. But that doesn't mean anything that would be reasonably discussed in a topic about games and censorship would qualify, unless you think XSEED should be localizing blatant child porn VNs, [redacted because of forum censor] simulators, etc.
No but its described broadly in a manner that makes me wonder if they aren't fearmongering to levels they are straight up saying if you translate/localize wrong by making a "Cultural mistake" you will go to Gitmo or someshit. They specify in games getting localized the games you implied are unlikely to get localized and when they do no one is taken to jail.
the xseed staff is going to gitmo for a child touching game in 2016 and they need to hire a lawyer that can read super fast NOW, any recommendations??
this also makes a nice idea for a bad tv sitcom, if we can switch some circumstances around for a wider viewing audience
So hey, figured I'd pop in and link this article for which I was briefly interviewed!
...Actually, I was FULLY interviewed for it, answering a ton of questions in great detail, but most of my answers were not featured in this article. I'm thinking (hoping?) there's another article planned in the near future that contains the rest of the interview -- but either way, I've got a few choice words, and though there's a definite bias in favor of censorship in the way this article is structured, I'm still glad I was able to get a word or two in to represent the anti-censorship contingent.
Oh, and incidentally, the screenshot quotation from NeoGAF in this article is very specifically the thing I wrote that got me banned from that forum. Up to you guys to determine if that ban was warranted or not (but here's a hint: no, it wasn't).
I... wouldn't hold my breath, personally. Is it possible to share some of your other answers here?
Kotaku isn't the most reliable. I'm guessing their article was getting a little too long so they cut it out. I would love to hear what other stuff you had to say on the matter though!
Kotaku should apologize to everyone who read their long, pointless article.
Well, people are very quick to run out and say "it's bad in all forms" and listen to nothing on the contrary. I suspect that segment is larger than the ones on the other side who are similarly black-and-white about the whole thing.
Wild pointless speculation, but eh. Not to mention I still don't like the term 'censorship', as I'm pretty sure a lot of those really don't understand what it means.
I wasn't expecting a greatly nuanced conversation from those guys, if I'm honest. Though the money statement makes a lot of sense, because I do hear (but apparently massively conflicting, so no idea idea how much is being pulled out of nowhere) that previous DoAX games have not sold that well internationally.
Or it's still possibly the most genius publicity stunt. That original statement was either that (because, seriously cared about those games before now? Flew under the radar), or just incredibly stupid.
