Why would I want half a game? Not worth full price to me if it's missing content.
I feel like "half" is an exaggeration. It's more like 98%. Also, do you have an opinion on region-specific DLC?
As a gamer people regardless of the language. They should have the chance to get the closest experience to the original game as the developer intended it to be played without censorship and poor translation.
I generally agree, aside from the grammar issues here. Unfortunately, what "should" be and what actually is aren't always the same thing.
Do you really need to gauge interest for releasing uncensored games? [Bleep] you, NISA.
The ESRB is not nearly as strict as you seem to believe, stop self-censoring your games before you submit them for review.
Stop with the company policy bull[bleep] and release your PC ports uncensored.
I'm sure they know people would prefer them uncensored. What they don't know is if the work to release an unrated game on Steam is an appropriate match for the cost of doing so. Also, I'm pretty sure that the company who talks with them about content on a regular basis knows more about how strict they are than the average gamer. Also, I don't think "self-censoring" is the right phrase to use when a company talks with the rating boards and gets feedback prior to release.
If an uncensored edition can be released on a platform. Every attempt should be made to do so.
I mostly agree. I wouldn't ask a company to do so if it wouldn't be profitable. It is never fair to ask a company to take a loss.
I'm an adult, I am capable of decid8ng what content I consume, and I do not need someone deciding what is appropriate content for me.
Well, ratings are mostly for parents getting stuff for their kids anyway. You should talk to the hardware developers, though, because they're the ones outright rejecting certain content.
It's the whole point of the game. No one's buying it for the gameplay or the story.
This is false. o wo/ I'm buying it for the gameplay and the story. The minigame (which I suppose is also technically gameplay...?) is an amusing side component to me, not the main reason to get the game.
Censoring a game won't get you more sales, this one is for sure.
On the other hand, showing that you listen to your community and release the game without butchering it, well, I could see people getting behind that and supporting you by buying the game. I know I would.
When the alternative is no sales at all, then yes, censoring does get you more sales. I wish people would recognize that they do listen to their community, and release things with as few edits as they could manage. However, the anti-censorship community seems to have no interest in compromises of any sort, and that's awkward.
No matter how "little" censorship is ever done to any game, I do not support devs/pubs that do any kind of censorship.
Niche game sales not what you expected? Probably because I'm not the only one that doesn't buy your censored "localizations".
Oh, sales weren't what they expected, all right. They were higher. o wo/ The idea that censorship equals tons of people not buying the game doesn't really hold water.
This game is great! So I hope we can get an uncensored version on Steam
I feel like it's important to provide an unmodified experience for players who want the original content. Most of the concerns could be addressed in ways that still allow players access in some form to the original content. For example, providing the original content in the form of free DLC.
Also, I make a point of supporting developers that at least make the unmodified content available in some fashion. I know I'm only one person, but it's something I like to see.
That additional content has to be rated, too. If it COULD be done that way, it would be.
I'd love to play this game uncensored on steam
And I hope you can. o wo/
I want to experience games as the creators intended.
This is reasonable. Do note that the creators decided on the changes, and could have said "no" if they felt it compromised their vision too much.
I believe there's a far bigger market for this kind of game when it's uncensored.
Consumer beliefs don't really affect company decisions, though - hence the petition. You're currently at a little over 550 people, which is probably not enough to sway the company. However strong your feelings are, it's important to provide concrete evidence to back them up if you want others to listen.
I'd buy this game in a heartbeat if it was properly translated AND uncensored. I have no interest in a title such as this butchered of its appeal.
You don't know how much ecchi stuff is still in the game, do you?
this is the digital age. you dont need to please console companies anymore. censorship is obsolete.
I think companies publishing on consoles would disagree.
I'm a [bleep] adult and I should have the option to play the original content
Well, there's always importing. Whether or not you like it, it IS an option.
I'd like to play the full game please.
I appreciate the politeness. Most people aren't showing it.
To be honest, i'm not interested in the game itself, but i don't like games content being changed, when there realy isn't a reason to.
In this case, there was a reason.
I’m tired of censorship for the sake of appealing to a larger demographic on something so niche as this. It’s alienating your core audience for the larger demographic that’s not even interested in such a niche.
This would be a useful sentiment if it bore any similarity to what's actually happening. NISA isn't trying to appeal to a bigger demographic - not when the "edits" keep a ton of ecchi stuff intact. They're just trying to release it in the first place.
If you are going to have a censored version, make it so that it's optional. Either by having both versions available or having a option ingame in censoring such content. As an Adult I am more then capable of making such decisions for myself.
If they could have released an unmodified version, they would have.
I'd prefer to buy and play a game as the creators intended it, rather than something that's been mutilated and changed for the sake of not offending the perpetually offended.
Again, basically no relation to reality here. NISA isn't trying to avoid offending people - did you play Ultra Despair Girls? Because that was offensive.
