Everyone probably knows by not that Tecmo Koei, the publisher of Dead or alive extreme 3 has decided to not sell the game in Europe and the US 'cause it didn't want to make a controversy regarding how females are treat in gaming.

So then Asian retailer play asia decided to sell the game in EU/US (by exporting) with English that led to a MASSIVE backlash from SJW. Then SJW have tried to get them blacklisted and all sort of things, including this Tumblr http://boycottplayasia.tumblr.com/... In return to SJW Play-Asia have made the best and most hilarious Twitter feed in like forever! https://twitter.com/playasia

So what do the CR community say and think about all of this?


Btw anyone interested in picking the game up for PS4 and PSvita.

then here's a direct link to PS4 http://www.play-asia.com/dead-or-alive-xtreme-3-fortune-multi-language/13/709dv7?affiliate_id=2019399

PC please, as hilarious as this is, some of me longs for professionalism. Screw it, this is hilarious on PlayAsia's part.

When a SJW boycotts something, it seems to have the opposite effect. XD

People getting butthurt over animated, fictional breasts has to be one of the saddest things I've ever heard.







...And one of the funniest too!


I mean, seriously. Do these SJWs not realize what jokes they are?

I'm not commander Shepard and this is my favourite store on the Citadel. My favourite part about this is that Play-Asia actually got more followers this way. Insulting SJWs is pretty good PR for them.

Currently my favourite tweet from them: https://twitter.com/playasia/status/669740920326127616

I did not even know who the SJW before that. Now I understand why the Japanese think twice before launching a game in the Western market.

But the twitters of play asia were simply hilarious. Good job Play Asia.

Play-Asia confirms that their social media guy is a 15 year old. If you wanna post crap like that you do it as yourself, not when you're representing your business. The fact they're bragging over all the new followers they have (because Twitter followers are in perfect correlation with sales ) without checking if they're all legitimate accounts (hint: they aren't) shows how childish and unprofessional they are.

You wanna know what's hilarious?



That's right, no actual evidence that there was real SJW backlash against DOAX3 who protested the game's release. At least, nothing beyond cherry picking tweets.

KT decided against localizing the game because it sells like crap and their overall sales are in decline, not because of mean scary social justice warriors. They just weren't willing to admit it so instead they attempt to pick up a few more customers by stirring up controversy.

Senren Kagura gets localized just fine. Gal Gun gets localized just fine. Hyperdimension Neptunia gets localized just fine. FFS, Dead or Alive 5 got localized just fine and still gets DLC that is far raunchier than anything in a volleyball spin-off.

But don't go telling PA about that, they really want to get more purchases from edgelords who are convinced it'll spite SJWs, regardless of the fact they wouln't have looked twice at that game otherwise.

I don't see what's so bad about lacking professionalism. Plus that 15 year old tweet's I found to be pretty hilarious for tweets, regardless of any controversy? I don't find publicity stunts to be inherently bad.

"Senran Kagura" is certainly one of the raciest games out there, and nobodies stopping Xseed from releasing them in the West. And if the locals don't like certain images in the game, Xseed would make changes like what happened with "Dungeon Traveler 2". Even if the next "Senran Kagura" game gets censored (mild censorship hopefully) I would still buy it because I think those games are pretty fun and can get pretty challenging at times. By the way, my favorite SK girl is Katsuragi.

Play-Asia has just earned a lot more respect from me.
Glad I preordered a copy of DOAX3 from them, and I'm pretty sure I'll have to go through Play-Asia when Valkyrie Drive is released.
