    The video posted above is the European video, so make sure to thumb down the NA one as well. Maybe NISA will get it through their thick fucking skulls we’re not interested in this hackjob.

    It is currently against NISA’s policy to release games unrated. According to NISA, ESRB is why they censored the game. PC releases do not require an ESRB rating to be published. A NISA employee suggested making a petition to try and help create an argument in favor of making exceptions to said policy for games like this on Steam. In response to this, Censored Gaming made a petition:
    https://www.change.org/p/nis-america-release-criminal-girls-2-party-favors-uncensored-on-steam

    I encourage anyone and everyone upset by this game’s censorship to sign it. While there is no guaruntee that the game will wind up getting an uncensored Steam release, the only possible results of this petition are either that nothing happens, or that we get uncensored versions of this game. (and potentially future NISA games).

    Causa perduta.

    I’m done negotiating with terrorists. NISA kept promising that if the first game did well the second one will be uncensored and we saw how that turned out. Plus do you really think that they’ll keep their word and invest the extra resources to uncensor the game and go against their policy because of a petition?

    I believe that they may or may not.
    But ultimately, I can only see either nothing happening or a positive outcome resulting from such a petition and thus that there is no reason not to sign. Even if you don’t want to support NISA, you can still sign it to try and help video games get proper releases.

    The most effective way to do that is to vote with your wallet – support publishers who do not censor games. If Valkyrie Drive dwarfs the sales of Criminal Girls 2, it will make them much more aware than a petition suggested by the community manager to deflect the Internet’s anger.

    I do not want to sign it, because I’m tired of NISA’s empty promises of uncensored releases. They have been doing this for decades and I’m done asking them to be reasonable. There are enough games out there that will get my money instead.

    This is NISA st the last chance saloon, if they mess this up then no one would ever trust them again so a petition is never the answer because it’s emotional blackmail.

    Because why should we have one when there no case for censorship.

    But having one still shows true feelings from people & if NISA don’t deliver then they screw over.

    Its a case of push and pull. There are two types of weebs. The SJW cucks who are weebs because they “like” Japanese culture. And then there is us who are pissed off when shit like this happens. Said cucks only go to safe spaces like Polygon and Kotaku and get offended by everything while. Of course devs is forced to cater to both sides or they either get shit on by us or the press.

    And who has more influence in the market? It begins with J

    They censor lolis in the US because of this law
    https://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/text/18/1466A
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PROTECT_Act_of_2003

    The comic book legal defense fund has already cataloged a number of cases regarding it
    http://cbldf.org/criminal-prosecutions-of-manga/

    Wikipedia articles also track a number of cases. You can in may cases even verify that the convicted are on the sex offender registries in their state.
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Legal_status_of_cartoon_pornography_depicting_minors#United_States

    You can find cases in the UK too
    http://www.gazettelive.co.uk/news/teesside-news/anime-fan-convicted-over-illegal-7958896

    Some more supplemental links.
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Miller_test
    http://www.firstamendmentcenter.org/virtual-child-pornography

    Just because a law is dumb and makes no sense doesn’t make it not a law. Pretending it is not real is foolish. I have collected all these links because people don’t believe prosecutions happen because of how dumb the idea that the US and some other western nations are prosecuting people for drawings, but they are, it’s a verifiable fact.

    People really need to stop being terrified of the big, scary judges and stop pleading guilty or taking plea bargins.

    Judges, at the end of the day, only decide sentences. It’s the jury that needs to be shown how borderline fucking retarded it is to punish anybody for drawings.

    Yeah but then again have you seen how the USA public starts foaming at the mouth when they hear the term pedophillia? I am pretty sure they could make it a death sentence and lots of Americans would cheer.

    Also in those links the CBLDF did win a case but legal fees were $100,000. I do not know about you but being out $100,000 is still losing. Instant bankruptcy.

    Even if it the petition is considered a lost cause, I do really believe that petition will help us a bit. Every vote/sign could be viewed as a potential customer, and yes if we vote with our wallet too that could help NISA understand the money they are loosing and the money they could make, and if it money doesn’t ramble their business, then yes NISA is a causa perduta.

    Also those data statics could be helpful against happy censoring companies.

    Of course, but the SJW dont want this game to exist, and the other weebs dont want them censored. Normally in these cases there is a third side, composed of people who are either blinded by fanboyism or just plain dont care. But not this time.Because its a bdsm game. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/c695d9479afa547489f0edde0fef605c0ba967f0f0b3acc971680da8700087c2.gif A bdsm loli game. Anyone who wants to play it already chose a side.

    No one wants this localization to exist.
    It is a mistake,

    This particular one wouldn’t. It will just show that there is some demand for that particular title at best.

    I would sign a petition against censored games in general that we can show to publishers, but submitting to that one NISA’s employee diversion tactic is not a good strategy. It is essentially used to divert attention from the butchered Vita release, while painting NISA in a good light – “look they are listening to their consumers”, even if (read when) they make up an excuse to release the exact same game on PC.

    I’m not giving them the satisfaction of begging them. There are other uncensored games that deserve my money and I choose to support them rather than expecting anything from NISA. They’ve been pulling the same tricks for decades and I’m tired.

    Knowing a bit of how business work, some thick skullheads numbnuts executives only listen to numbers, rather to enraged fans. Gotta tell you I really dislike censorship of any kind and I hate with all my existence SJW, libtards and those privileged NeoFemenists.

    I’m not signing the petition, because it’s just a diversion tactic used by NISA to paint them as the good guy. They will get the image of listening to their customers and then make an excuse as to why they won’t uncensor the game.

    I’d rather keep my pride and spend my money elsewhere than beg NISA to act reasonable.

    I do see this is our last chance, if NISA Screw us over by not doing a steam uncensored then noting will, i think the sales from the last game reach just over 3000.

    And NISA Said that pretty good for a small dev, if the petition reach that same amount too then NISA should do the right thing and cut out the rating boards altogether.

    And release it uncut on steam i buy it on day one. What other way we can fight this censorship farce Well i rather have the games on steam why, you dont just cut off the ESRB, but also the big three too “Sony microsoft and nintendo” less games goes though the ESRB = Less money for them.

    less games on those big three no money for them the consoles will have 1 less type of games and will make them sit up.

    In regards to running into trouble with the law that is perhaps worse. Your best case would be to leak assets to an underground source to make such a patch or to make it easy to do so if you are brought up on charges you can claim you had nothing to do with it and someone altered your product in an unauthorized manner.

    If that’s not bad enough, you also have the gullible white-knights and manginas who have bought into feminism, and also the bitter fujoshit fangirls who immensely dislike female fan-service (they have no problems with Yaoi though of course) to deal with.

    Group all of the above together and you have Anime News Network. Pretty much a mixture of cancer and AIDS.

    If you’re talking about the CBLDF’s page that isn’t an exhaustive list. Thankfully yes the prosecutions are low but as a business you are more vulnerable simply by being more publicly visible. It’s the same reason why most bars don’t flagrantly disobey no smoking bans.

    Fucking irrelevant. You market and sell your titles to a foreign audience, and you’ll be expected to abide by their respective laws. This is especially considering the fact that they sell physical copies in addition to digital titles.

    Um, no, no it isn’t irrelevant. You don’t seem to understand how borders and laws work. XD Marketing a product from a place where it is legal to people in an area where it is illegal is pretty damn common. XD

    OMG I can’t stop laughing, do you really not understand how a Japanese company selling English products on a Japanese website in Japan would avoid laws in the United States? Holy fuck that is a special kind of stupid.
