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.

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.


Nobody said there were a backlash for the game releasing in the west. Tecmo just didn't want to äcause a backlash, that's the reason for them not wanting to launch it in the west. I guess you could call it playing safe on their side since they didn't have the balls to get called out as being "sexist".

But while canceling the game in US/EU they linked to Play Asia that decided to #SJW and attack SJW. Play Asia's Twitter is ran by a international Ambassador team with people they think fit the role of social advertising. And I don't think there's any 15 year old that would fit the role....

Whoops. My bad.

I heard that the last game they released sold like shit out west that's why they're not bringing it over. They're just trying to hide it. If shit like Senran Kagura can come over and be sold and do just fine out west clearly the issue is not the representation of women. Besides how pathetic of a developer do you have to be to not be able to deal with criticism for your shitty game? No work should be free of criticism, get the fuck over it.

Because the criticism is crap. Apparently I can't have my slightly pornographic game because some people do not want me to jack off to said game. Isn't that the truly childish problem? Saying someone can't jack off to certain things (well at least things not inherently harmful) undermines sexuality and thrives on ignorance.

That wouldn't change anything. Assuming that's the real reason, which I strongly doubt, it just shows they had nothing to fear at all. The Facebook comment that made the statement has since been deleted, which doesn't help that argument either.

Wow I....really didn't think I'd need to specify that little comment wasn't meant to be taken literally. The social media guy could be 10 or he could be 60 and it wouldn't make a difference; he's been acting like a child while representing his company. I don't think his superiors should just laugh that off.

Thank you!

When a website disables comments, people cry censorship and accuse them of avoiding criticism (which, while I don't fully agree with, I can accept as a legitimate argument). But then a company halts the release of a game because they don't want their depiction of women to be criticized and the same people are suddenly taking their side.

I don't like Michael Bay's flicks, but for once I'll have to give him props. No matter how much his works get panned, he still gets back up and makes more.

I think the problem lies on the gaming media for assuming SJWs are behind this. I mean, I've read quite a bit of sources from KYM concerning speculation. Now look at where we ended up.

SJWs suck. I love kickin' ass in a skimpy outfit.

Game companies shouldn't give a shit about whiny little bitches. Giving in like this isn't admirable, but stupid and pitiful. However, it's just an excuse for their terrible sales because gamers want more than a set of tits to play a game, we actually want good gameplay. Well I'll be damned!

It's not a problem of developers and criticism. The development studio (team ninja) have said that they want Tecmo Koei (the publisher) to get published in the west. In addition, another game publisher have shown interest in publishing it for them. So the devs and another publisher clearly wants gamers in the EU/US to get the game and play it. However publishing a game is expensive as fuck and if you look at how the 2 other games in the series have sold worldwide, then you may see what made them not want to publish it. In fact, I'm currently in a game development education and we've talked about licensing, age boards, etc. and how expensive it can be to publish games... So the deciding factor in all of this might have been that Tecmo didn't think it was worth the costs.

Also Tecmo never said SJW was the reason for it not being published. However what started the flame war was that Play Asia wanted to start a flame war since they were the once who shot the first blast at SJW. Then SJW did what they always do best, complain about it all which led to the game selling even more for the retailer...

Are you talking about "DOA 5 Last Round"? It was the second special edition of "DOA 5" and it probably sold poorly because gamers thought it was just another cash grab from Tecmo. Plus it has DLC that's more expensive than the game itself.

A softcore sex simulator in the image of Sexy Beach 3 without nudity or sex is something I would buy but I understand. :/

It sold poorly because it was a crappy port.
Case in point, actually do your ports well.

There's not as big of a market for just a little bit of bikini and hot chick games. It's kind of easy to find material these days, so to throw down money for it, there usually has to be more to it.

Most people would rather throw down money on tits + gameplay. Just tits games are worth maybe a few bucks on steam.

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


Because no one really liked them. Everyone either hates them or treats them like that annoying kid you don't care about but you wish would just shut up already. So when someone just doesn't deal with their bull it leaves a good impression on people. That combined with all the free PR it gives them is a gold mine.

Because the thing in SJW is not the majority. They are just a vocal minority so unless they get the majority on their side they can't do shit besides annoy people. So in cases like this where popular games are getting blocked by them very few people are on their side and their actions only draw attention to it which helps sales.

Kind of like what this thread is doing right now.

So even if there is no actual backlash the simple idea it happened is enough. Which really proves how much of a joke they are. They are helping their "enemies" more than anything.
