    “The story follows her exacting revenge upon the very people that have wronged her.” – wronged her, huh? That’s vague enough to both mean stabbing her brother with a sword or casting a spell on him.

    For a game that’s trying to be more edgy, there is a noticeable lack of blades in it.

    Whew, the Berserk themes are real.

    “So Velvet why do you wanna kill this guy?” “The asshole forced me to watch his shitty lightshow.”

    The revenge them isn’t only tied to Beserk.

    Isn’t just revenge. A lot of what I’ve seen/heard of Berseria reminds me of Berserk.

    Ah I’m torn. The game still looks really good, but any censorship really can’t be condoned. Guess it doesn’t matter since Fate Extella comes out two weeks before so I’ll be playing that for a few months.

    I don’t remember any rape from Berseria.

    Only similarities are Demons and revenge
    But honestly Berserk ain’t no teen revenge quest
    Guts wants revenge on somebody who sacrifices a freedom force tries to sacrifice him and rapes Casca somebody he loves

    All i see here is Arthur sacrificing 1 kid to give his sister in law demon powers and form

    With their horrible dialog, they’ve accidentally made SJW, the game.

    >Anyone talking about their feelings

    Doubtful. Many people put their feelings before anyone else’s without being SJWs. And they usually end up doing stupid things because of it. Lets wait til when the whole game is out or more lines like that pop up.

    Really hoping the censorship doesn’t neuter the story. This trailer felt a lot less impact than the Japanese ones.

    So has censorship already been confirmed?

    I don’t know why I look forward to games anymore. Maybe it’s time to stop. They’ll never stop censoring them.

    Don’t care – not buying this censored piece of crap!
