To all the Japan character game artists out there if you are reading this please stand up & pack up. Leave your job & form your own game company that way we don't have to put up with this bs. Nintendo runs on America, take that Dunkin' Donuts because you got a new contender in town!
But jokes aside I'm mad about this & its always going to be this way until people stop buying their games period. Look at all those years when SEGA was around they made fun of Nintendo for their kiddy image & Sony also taking shots at them not to long ago. That goes to show Nintendo will always have that rule in place for the family image. & all that talk about catering to all ages is bs, its all about greed on how much we can reach the masses out there. Yes we did get some games like Bay & Senran to name a few but look how few made it through without taking stuff out. What I'm starting to see is a pattern on their games where they always include some type of young person or give young age numbering in games so that they don't have to deal with all the backlash out there about if younger kids get their hands on a M rated game.
I don't know why they even bother to let their artist go forward with their design & then later censor them. Soon enough they will leave because who is going to work for someone if they can't freely do what their job title says. In the end I already got this CE ordered & in the future I will be making changes to the games I buy now on. Because no.1 I'm my own person that makes choices be it wrong or right & 2nd its my damn hard earn money that I worked hard for to which if I see something that I don't like then I don't have to buy it.
I look at my WII u which my 5yr son plays with me & I couldn't help notice I have a folder in which I keep just 10 M rated games to myself while I have more then 25 other games that he can play safely. I have parental control set up of course but I look at all these censoring games & tell myself why bother having it set up when they are doing the work for us when they remove the original art work.
Nintendo of Japan need not firing NoA staff but take all those money they got from us & their bonuses to build a new building that stands along side NoA & call it the NoAF ( Nintendo of Artistic Freedom). That way we adults can start seeing/playing the games we always wanted to play had Nintendo grew up with us back then.
