Hey, I'm new to forums so please don't hate!
OK so I've been following Queens blade for a while and was really excited for it to change over to an English game and be open on the global market..
But honestly, when I found out about all the censorship I thought to myself what is the point?
Ya its probably an awesome game and all, but if its blocking all the mature features, what is the point of even calling it a mature game?
I understand the predicament when it comes to America and their (cant remember what its called right now) that they are dramatically limited by what content they can have..
But what about us in South Africa, or any other country where that censorship doesn't reach (I sincerely hope) can we expect the mature content from Queens blade back? **** I don't even mind if there are some bad translations or even if there are simply English subtitles..
Look, I'm not some perv (OK maybe a little) but I was just expecting the same game when I saw Queens Blade..
And if the problem is being unable to control who actually plays the game, then why not have the game with the censorship for the 17+ but then if your able to put in your ID (which will have your date of birth) which will unlock the full game with-out the censorship.. There are always ways!
Can we expect the game to grow in the mature content aspect?
P.S. I am aware of the grammatical errors with the positioning of my conjunctions, but I really don't care, my point was getting across.
usually the problem whenever a game goes worldwide lies in the fact that developers have to cover their backs from every possible angle they could get some flak
the original queen's blade was a korean only game, same thing happens to a lot of japanese games, they usually state that their software is intended for their local audiences only
of course, people from everywhere around the globe usually end up trying their game one way or another, but with that little statement they cover their ass3s to prevent demands/threats coming from countries that have different cultural views towards certain topics (like, how in some countries gore is ok but a nipple is not, feminists start doing their thing, how games are blamed for everything that's wrong with youth these days in some other places, etc)
so stuff like censoring the loli class is the easiest way to save a lot of headaches to both LIVEPLEX and the people that port their game in other regions.
and that is a key point cause every time the original creators get heat from their localization parties that sours up their relationship, that why localization deals with taboo subjects and tries to adapt the references that people usually won't get outside the original market
