    The collector’s edition looks really cool.

    My guess is that this game is a prequel. The Criminal Girls/Knight protocol was a colossal failure, so I can’t see the logic of trying it again. That being said, they did exactly that in the first game so anything is possible.

    It looks interesting, but it’s hard to get excited about this when there’s a 99% chance that NISA will fuck it up again.

    Did they fuck up the translation or was it only the censorship?

    They fuck up everything these days. Even breaking game bugs is common sense for them. Censorship, localization quality that makes you think you are reading a bad fan fiction…

    I don’t know how the translation is, I didn’t buy it because of the censorship.

    Oh yeah, I remember one of their games had a game breaking bug in them in the American version. What one was it?

    I do know they fuck up Neptunia adding memes and stupid dialogue.

    It was a good game and the censorship was not really that prevalent. I’d imagine it would be quite cheap now, so if you are still interested you can try it out.

    Buy it used to avoid financially supporting these scoundrels.

    What it says in this list but honestly, with the sheer number of fuck ups and especially game breaking ones, you’d be an idiot to think of buying it new anywhere near first day.

    You might be thinking of The Witch and the Hundred Knight. It had a bug that would literally crash the PS3 (which I can personally confirm). One guy claimed the bug actually bricked his PS3.

    Original version doesn’t have fog anymore on later levels and still have voices during punishement time.

    It’s also a principle to not buy anything censored so it doesn’t give a reason for NISA to add more censorship for other titles in the future.

    At this current period of time, it’s much more beneficial to learn Japanese than being dependant to English-translated releases.

    That’s definitely true. I’ve been studying for a few years now, but I’m still not quite good enough to enjoy the story without an English translation. I’m at least glad I didn’t wait for the localization industry to turn to complete shit before I started learning.

    One knows how much faith people have on western publishers when they’d rather get the chinese translation than have a localization.

    The tragedy is that this is not the message we are sending by not purchasing the game. The publishers will interpret the lack of sales as lack of interest for those types of games. In this age of social media a more valid strategy would be to let them know.

    I highly doubt publishers want to censor games – it is extra work for them. They do however have to toe the line to get around strict idiotic laws like in Germany or Australia.

    Nice that they updated the list with the more recent games and issues. Last time I see it, it was not complete.

  18. Rayxtr

    The laws in Germany only are more for the violence en blood. Sexuality jokes and parts of games don’t matter. You will see this with the amount of Ecchi manga they have in Germany which never saw a English and are not extra censored for the German law.

    I understand Australia is a different story but this doesn’t count for Germany.

    If it’s uncensored, i will always choose engrish over english

    Violence can still be censored, so I think my point stands.

    At least the Vita version of D3 is fine…but I never heard about that in D4, sure is an odd bug. An English voice line crashing the game? Vita-exclusive to boot. Just what the fuck is it they do at NISA?

    I wish I could just learn moonrunes and not have to worry about shitty NISA and other bad localizations. But god damn moon is hard to learn.

    Games like Moe Chronicle give me hope though, since the Asia/Pacific release has English subs, they did the same with the SAO Vita games as well iirc. Too bad doing such isn’t really standard practice, not even remotely…

    So far violence has not been censored in these kind of games ever so far. its always have been only sexuality things that the publisher self choose to censor to get a lower rating. Hoping to get more sales that way. Which is more pointed on the US with the mature/Adult only rating which probably can effect selling in a few stores there.

    NISA did choose it to censor themself so its our own right to decide not buying their games. Your point barely stands.

    I’m talking generally about censorship, so violence is a factor. The perfect example being the danger of Hatred getting an AO rating, which would’ve excluded them from Steam and possibly consoles and thus from a large potential audience. In the end it is the decision of the developer what to do with their product.

    So what you are saying is that publishers should try to bring these games uncensored to the countries in question and risk a legal action? Not very business savvy.

    Of course the customers have the right to choose what to buy, but boycotting the game, because of censorship doesn’t send that message. The suits who count the numbers at the end most likely don’t even know about the development changes. Letting the developers know before the game is released should be a more effective strategy.

    Each person must evaluate the product for himself. I myself bought Criminal Girls and didn’t mind that some of the punishments had vanishing pink mist, because I enjoyed the other 95% of the gameplay and story. I bet that many western players enjoyed Final Fight even without Poison and Roxy. Something like removing the gory scenes from Until Dawn however is a serious censorship that removes a core element of the experience.

    If I had to hazard a guess, NISA hired cheap Tumbler labor and fired anyone who didn’t leave that knew what they were doing.

    It’s such a bloody shame that they didn’t improve battle system.

    Whoa, that list I started with lots of anons has really improved. Nice to see it wasn’t for nothing.

    Related, is the localized version of Danga AE safe to buy? Or was it NISA-fied?

    Oh look, an obvious spam bot who tries really hard to spread viruses to other peoples computers and fails miserably. Just his’/her’s pointless existence on the internet and IRL I’m sure. LOL, get the fuck outta here!

    Looks just like the first game… which should be nice. Did the censoring really hurt the first that much¿ I see a lot of complaints about it every time a CG news is posted.

    If this gets censored I will probably buy two copies so I can enjoy the story and the mini game. This mini game looks more involved. I wish I was born in Japan… Need to learn to read kanji
