  1. This song played during the credits of SO3 and I remember it made me feel very emotional (but don't tell anyone that ). But for a more upbeat song, let's see Paul Allen's...
  2. What is the purpose of this thread? If you're anything like me, I want to know if a game has been censored in some way before I buy it so I can make an informed purchasing decision about whether or not it's a product worth supporting. I think this is especially important in a time when Sony have implemented a censorship policy that has stifled the creative freedom of many developers. The policy came about as a reaction to the "#MeToo Movement" in the US (the PlayStation HQ is in California), and initially seemed to target Japanese games exclusively (especially those with an anime art style) because the big wigs at Sony deemed the depictions of women in them to be "sexist". As documented in this thread over the years though, they've gone after western developers too, and not just for the sexual content in games, but have even forced violence/gore to be toned down in horror games that have released on their platforms. This policy isn't applied consistently though, and as we've seen, some of the more high profile developers will get a pass, even from Sony's own first party studios. This policy is mostly used by the woke staff at PlayStation to bully smaller devs and publishers, especially those from Japan, to comply with their warped view of the world where anime girls with big boobs are offensive and adult themes are triggering. Sony doesn't think you're mature enough to come to your own conclusions regarding what you're comfortable with, so they tone it down for you. I've created this thread in order to compile a list of these censored games with information on how they've been changed, be it for political reasons, complaints on social media, demands made by the platform holder, etc. When possible, I will include alternate ways of buying/playing versions of these games that haven't been affected by censorship. I'll do my best to keep the thread updated, but I'll also be counting on you guys to help me since some things will undoubtedly slip under my radar. The idea is that you'll be able to look through this opening post to find both older games and upcoming ones to see if and how it has been affected. I've roughly put them in order of release, but if you're on PC and don't want to look through the entire post, you can use CTRL + F to bring up a search box and type the name of the game you're looking for to see if it has been mentioned. Will all examples of censorship be included on this list? Ideally it would, but video game censorship is very common in places like the Middle East, China, etc, and it's practically impossible for me to know about every example that happens across the globe. I will add examples that are brought to my attention, but I want this thread to primarily focus on the information that will be relevant to the mostly western English-speaking visitors of this site. Also, there might be times where something is brought to my attention either via this thread or through PM's and it's not entirely clear if it's actually censorship. When this happens, I will make a decision about whether or not to put it on the list at the time, but I will give others the opportunity to voice their opinions on the matter if they happen to be more knowledgeable than me on the subject. Why not include other consoles/handhelds in this list? First and foremost, I wanted to create a thread that would be relevant to the people who visit this site. While it would be interesting to list historical examples of censorship in games or the censorship that goes on elsewhere, it wouldn't really help in the purpose I stated above of informing people before they make a purchase. Secondly, the PS5, PS4, and Vita are all platforms that have been affected by Sony's Censorship Policy which was introduced back in 2018. That censorship policy was the impetus behind creating this thread, and thus, the focus should be on Sony platforms. I have to draw the line somewhere. How do I contribute to this list? It's simple really. Just put the name of the game in your post along with some form of proof. Assuming the developers haven't made a statement regarding the censorship themselves, other examples of proof would be something like an article/forum post/YouTube video that details the censorship in question (screenshot comparisons, translation differences, etc). So long as what you've posted will be able to inform somebody not familiar with the game about the changes, that will be fine. The more information you can provide the better. Do note that since we're now years removed from the censorship policy being implemented, Japanese developers have had time to adjust, and many of their games are now being censored during development. Most of the time we'll never know what could have been in the game unless the developers come outright and say it. Just because a game isn't on this list doesn't mean it wasn't affected by Sony's censorship policy, it's just hard to prove one way or another.

  3. This is a pretty popular game on the site, and although there are a ton of threads about all kinds of things related to this game, I've noticed that there's not one for just discussing the game in general. Stuff like what you've been up to in the game recently, trophy progress, builds you're using, thoughts on upcoming updates and characters, cool screenshots you took, etc. Just anything that you feel like posting related to the game that doesn't really fit into other threads or is worth making a whole topic about. So I guess the big news about the game as of typing this is that the 2.7 update has been delayed to an unknown date. The current banner for Ayaka has been extended, and players will receive compensation (400 Primogem, 1 Fragile Resin, 7 Hero's Wit, 16 Mystic Enhancement Ore, and 120,000 Mora) every week until the update drops. Source The delay doesn't really bother me personally as I have enough quests to catch up on as it is, but I get it if you're disappointed. But with that out of the way, I guess I'll just talk about my experience with the game so far. I only started playing in November last year, 14 months after launch, so I missed out on quite a lot of content and character banners. I've managed to rack up a good 250 hours into the game since then though as I play it almost every day, if only just to complete the commissions and what not. Still, I'm not really up to date on the current "meta" as I play the game pretty casually. I haven't made a serious attempt at the Abyssal Moon Spire yet because I know I'll just get my ass kicked. 😛 I'm missing a ton of trophies too, but I'm in no rush to get them as I know I'll be playing the game for a long time to come. I'm mostly just focused on building up my roster of characters right now. I'll post a screenshot of my current progress below. I'm still not sure what main party to go with, but for now, I'm mostly using Hu Tao, Ganyu, Xingqiu, and Bennett (probably a horrible combination I know). I really wanted to get Raiden in the re-run of her banner that ended recently, but unfortunately, I wasn't lucky enough despite having quite a lot of primogems saved up. I did get pretty lucky on the Ganyu banner though and managed to get her to C2, so swings and roundabouts I suppose. 😛 That's about all I have to say for now. I'd be interested to hear other people's thoughts and experiences with the game and anything related to it. I'm sure you have a way better setup than me. 😅 And if this thread doesn't catch on, that's fine too. I tried. 😛 I'll post about new updates when they drop at least.
  4. Both the PS4 and PS5 versions have always been censored in Europe. Last I heard, the censorship had been added back in for the NA Special Edition, but looking into it now, that could be false. The only discussion I can see about censorship in the Special Edition is this GameFAQ's thread, and someone in there claims it's still uncensored for NA. If anyone's reading this who's played the NA version of Special Edition, feel free to chime in, but for now I think I'll just edit the DMC5 entry so it only includes the EU version being censored. And I believe the censorship of Trish's butt was only for the west. That scene in the JP and Asian versions were never censored as far as I know.
  5. Gura really went all out for her birthday this year. First of all there was that call-in stream, as is tradition in Hololive. I found it funny how with almost everyone who called in, she was like "we should play something together". I wonder how many of those she's actually going to follow through with. Probably not many. 😛 When she was getting towards the last few call-ins, and neither of them turned out to be Ame, I was super confused because Ame always shows up to these things and there was no way she was gonna miss it unless something catastrophic happened. It all made sense at the end though when they revealed that they were in the same room together (I think she was at Ame's place?). That was a nice surprise. After that they did a karaoke stream together, although I couldn't watch it live since it started at like 5:30 in the morning for me. 😛 I managed to find a reupload of the whole stream though, so I watched that instead. Lots of good song choices like September, 99 Red Balloons, and Don't Stop Believin'. They even sang the Chug Jug meme song. 😆 I am of the belief that the stream can cure depression. They were just so cute together and their high energy was infectious. Amesame 4 life. 😎 The following day we got Gura's actual birthday celebration stream which ended up being a proper 3D concert. Like it had a production value I would expect from one of Hololive's paid concerts, with the set changes, choreographed dances, impressive camera work, and all the different assets in the background. She did a solo song, then a duet with each member of Myth, and ended on Myth or Treat, that original Halloween song they all sang together. It was super impressive. She also revealed merch at the end as you would expect. My favourite one was the Dino Gura plushie. It's squishy, punchable, AND punt-able! 😄
  6. But he must keep defending Sly or else he'd stop getting paid for his position as a mod. Wait, you're telling me he does it all for free!? Same here. I can't really speak to how it was back then, but it feels like the post deletions have gotten a lot worse over the past couple of years.
  7. #411 - Synergia Platinum Body Unlocked all other trophies for Synergia. This is a visual novel that takes place in a cyberpunk setting. It's about a cop who has to deal with android-related problems, so already you can see the Blade Runner influence. The main character, Cila, reminds me a lot of Motoko Kusanagi from Ghost in the Shell, and they even include a quote from that series during one of the transitions, so it makes sense. What separates this game from the media it was influenced by though is that it's essentially a yuri love story. Without giving too much away, the main character starts living with this advanced android who's closer to being human than a machine, and the main character's cold/distant personality starts melting away. It's pretty sweet and doesn't take away from the larger plot. The art style is pretty nice and it has some pretty good music as well. It took me about 4 hours or so to read through the whole thing (there are 2 endings and a bonus epilogue when you get them both). I would definitely recommend it if this at all sounds interesting to you.
  8. The publisher PQube and its developer BeXide have announced Super Bullet Break, an anime-style roguelite deckbuilder, for PS4, Switch, and PC. It will launch both physically and digitally in the summer of this year. You can pre-order the Day One Edition from Funstock. Description from the Steam page: I recently got into Slay the Spire and have really enjoyed my time with it. Definitely interested in trying out more deckbuilding games now, and this one looks right up my alley with the anime-style artwork. It looks great!
  9. #409 - The Testament of Sherlock Holmes Sherlock Holmes’ will Strength and perseverance to the end I'm still pretty new to these Sherlock Holmes games, with the only other one I've played being Crimes and Punishments. In contrast to that game, The Testament of Sherlock Holmes focuses on one large case rather than a bunch of individual ones. The story itself was a lot darker which I appreciated, with Holmes' coming across as more of a villain in this one. You really start questioning his motivations. There's a cool twist as well. Not the most riveting gameplay since it mainly consists of going around collecting clues, piecing things together, and solving puzzles. It's the kind of game you have to be in the mood for, but I enjoyed my time with it. Honestly, the biggest complaint I have about this game is from a technical side of things. The framerate felt very sluggish and seemed to hover around 25fps from what I could tell. It stuttered quite a bit as well and I even had to restart the game a few times because the audio messed up. Not the end of the world I guess considering it's a slow paced game, but still, it didn't feel anywhere near as good to play as Crimes and Punishments on the PS4 as a result. As for the platinum experience, there's a few missable trophies you have to keep an eye on, but most of it comes naturally from beating the game. And speaking of beating the game, there's a pretty awesome animation that plays during the credit sequence I wanted to share. It took me by surprise. #410 - Agarest: Generation of War 2 Collect ALL the Trophies! Acquired all trophies. I jumped into this one right after being done with Generations of War Zero which was quite jarring because they completely reworked the combat system. The previous games were traditional tactical RPG's, whereas this game kind of blends that was a more traditional turn-based game (just with a lot more button mashing). It feels way more action-orientated, with the "move phase" being taken out since you don't need to position your characters on the battlefield anymore. I hated it at first because there's a ton of mechanics that were poorly explained, but it did grow on me over time as I figured out how it works. I'd still say I prefer the gameplay in the older titles though. But apart from the battles, the game is largely the same as its predecessors. One of the main draws of this series is being able to romance various heroines, have a kid with her (), and then playing as that kid when he grows up. That's all very much intact in this game, and there's lots of good fanservice in the CG's as usual too. The trophies in this one are much less intimidating than the ones in Generations of War Zero, but that's not to say they're a complete cakewalk. Not much in the way of challenge, but there's still a significant grind involved completing all the guild quests, which are essentially just full of stuff like "kill x amount of enemies", "perform this combination attack", and "collect x number of this item". The worst thing about it is that you can't just save them all for later as you have to do a significant amount of them to unlock events related to getting the true ending (also a trophy). That means you'll complete a bunch of quests, do a few story events and maybe a boss battle, and then you'll be given more of these quests to complete. It's just kind of a pain to keep having your progress come to a halt while you grind these quests over and over again. There's 384 of them in total and it's quite a slog. Still, I quite liked this game even if it's not as good as Generations of War Zero imo.
  10. That we did. 😌
  11. I'm glad it was finally announced officially. I loved the way they did it too. It looked like the video was about to end, and they they took off their jackets and revealed the logo for DD2. Kind of reminds me of that Resident Evil 2 remake announcement from back in the day. I'm not even mad at the lack of info about it, just glad it's happening. 😁
  12. In celebration of the Dragon's Dogma 10th anniversary event tonight, here's this banger. 👌 I recently beat RDR2, and one of the most impactful moments for me is when this song starts playing. That part wrecked me. If you know, you know. 😢
  13. With a new DLC campaign on the way, I figured I'd finally pull the trigger on this one. It's pretty cheap nowadays. The platinum seems to not only be difficult, but also a real big time commitment. I'm hoping I can pull it off with a buddy of mine. 😁
  14. I don't know and I don't care. Your point?
  15. I have the Gold Edition of RE7 on disc and I managed to upgrade it to the PS5 version. Make sure you look on the Gold Edition page for the free upgrade.
  16. Very interesting to see that they've implemented a third person mode for the main game, and from what I understand, the DLC is only available in third person. Fine by me since we get a better look at Rose and she's cute. 😳 I was waiting for the Gold Edition to come out before I played this game, so I'm definitely gonna pick that up. I'm unsure whether or not I'll play the main game in first person or third person. Leaning towards the former right now since that's how it was originally intended, but I'll see how good the third person implementation is before I make a final decision.
  17. They've got to stop blueballing us. 😛 Surely *this* will be where it's announced, right? 😆
  18. So it turns out the localization coordinator for the re-releases of Persona 3 Portable and Persona 4 Golden is a well-known leftist activist on Twitter who has previously bragged about their inaccurate translations and moaned about Young Jump being "gross and sexist" just to list a couple of things. That's not to say we know for definite they're going to butcher these re-releases, but given how Catherine: Full Body and Persona 5 Royal had "offensive" dialogue changed when they came out, there is cause for concern. We'll have to keep an eye on it. I'll defer to you on this since you know much more about these games than I do, so I've removed it from the list. Thanks for taking the time to explain your reasoning. And yeah, I agree that TheGamer is a garbage site. I wouldn't put it past them to have twisted Kishida’s words.
  19. It figures that we finally get ports of Persona 3 Portable and Persona 4 Golden to newer consoles, but they end up only coming to Xbox of all places (at least for now). You know, the console ecosystem known for it's top quality JRPG's. 😛 Microsoft must have paid for timed console exclusivity, at least as far as P3P and P4G go, but I'm positive they'll end up on PS4/PS5 at some point. Probably Switch as well. It wouldn't make any sense otherwise, but then again, this is Atlus... I'm glad they decided to port Persona 3 Portable over FES since it's the superior version imo. Feels much better to play thanks to direct commands for other party members and all those quality of life improvements. Plus, you know, it has the FeMC route which gives a whole new perspective on the game. New social links, new music, etc. Definitely the game I'm most excited to replay, especially since it hasn't had achievements/trophies before. I'm interested to see what the full list looks like.
  20. New Hololive Alternative teaser dropped, and man, it's gorgeous. 👀 I love all the references they packed in there. Some humorous moments too like Subaru riding a giant flying duck. 😄 It's great to see Myth and ID Gen 1 included this time around. They also released a video for Holoearth, that open-world sandbox game they're developing. Looks cool and I can't wait to see more. It's been interesting to watch the rise of Nijisanji's Salome. She managed to reach 1 million subs even faster than Gura which is really impressive. She fills that ojousama niche in the VTuber community I never knew I wanted. 😄 I gave her a sub myself, although I've only watched clips so far. My favourite one has got to be this. Takes me back to the Hololive clips we used to get from a certain GTA V scene before HoloEN became a thing. Some other clips I like were the "Kiss my ass desuwa" one and her love confession. 😆 As far as streams go, it's been a bit slow for the past couple of weeks due to Mumei's break and IRyS taking it easy because of her continuing throat problem. I've still been watching stuff from the other girls I watch regularly though. We got Fauna making cursed versions of HoloEN in Miitopia which lead to some funny moments like this one. Also more Assassin's Creed Black flag from her which is always fun, especially since she sings sea shanties every time she's on the ship. 😛 For Ame, I've just been watching her Elden Ring streams. She spent a while autistically trying to get a horse down an elevator. 😆 As for Gura, I watched her play The Stanley Parable like you guys already mentioned, and that had a lot of funny moments. The hole part comes to mind. 😝 Also watched that I Am Fish stream and it's a pretty weird game, but it suited her personality well. Mumei said she was coming back today which I'm looking forward to. During her break, she uploaded this animation from SuperAppleMan, and it's good stuff. I enjoy her brand of humour. 😁
  21. At first I thought they were showing us footage of the PS4 remaster. Only thing that tipped me off were the updated character models. They even reused all the same voice acting from the original lol. Just goes to show how unnecessary this remake was like everyone had been saying. That's be $70, sirs. 😆
  22. A horror game is exactly what I want out of Kojima, especially when you consider all the ideas he had for P.T. left unrealized. Even just that small teaser had a lot of promise and is still talked about all these years later. It would be awesome if he got Junji Ito involved with this new game as well. I really hope this isn't an Xbox exclusive... I would find it strange if it was since that would mean Kojima Productions, a Japanese company, would essentially be abandoning the Japanese market. Although with the poor performance of the PS5 in Japan, maybe it wouldn't make much of a difference anyway.
  23. Welp, I lost the 50/50. No Yelan for me I guess. 🙃 I'm completely out of primogems/intertwined fate now, so it's going to take a while before I'm able to reach soft pity again. Maybe I'll wish on the Yoimiya or Kazuha banners a bit when they become available, but I'm kind of just tempted to save up now until update 3.0 drops. But anyway, I really liked the Perilous Trail event. I'm not the biggest fan of puzzles, but the ones in the Lurking Peril quests weren't that difficult to figure out which was nice. I also thought that final compass/clock puzzle was a pretty cool concept. The character interactions were what made the quests as enjoyable as they were though. I think Itto grew on me a bit, even if he is a goofball. 😛 Then there were the Realms of Guile and War domains which I had a lot of fun with. They felt like just the right amount of challenge, and I liked that it basically forced you out of your comfort zone by making you play as characters you don't usually use. Since they provided a lot of trial characters, it didn't feel like you handicapped too much by not using your main characters. There was also some strategy involved in picking which characters you were going to use in a round since they would then be out of commission in the next one. Good stuff.
  24. I got some remasters. I haven't played an Assassin's Creed game since AC3 came out. I'd like to play some of the newer games in the series, but I figured I'd revisit the Ezio trilogy first since I enjoyed them quite a lot back in the day. As for Ni No Kuni, I got the plat in the PS3 version back in 2018, but it's a wonderful game, and I'd like to do it again at some point. Plus, it's nice to own the game physically since I had a digital copy of the game on PS3.
  25. Thanks, I've added it to the list. Gamuzumi are usually upfront when the PlayStation versions of the games they publish have additional censorship, and since it's not mentioned on the game's page, I would imagine it's identical to the Switch version. Still, it doesn't hurt to inquire about it. Feel free to follow up if they get back to you.
