Earlier, we released an article where Play-Asia (playasia.com) had suggested that the reason Dead Or Alive Xtreme 3 was not being localised was because of “SJW nonsense”. While we personally probably wouldn’t have run that particular tweet in such tough terms ourselves, seeing another company do this has provided a tonne of insight into the western gaming news reporting and PR sphere. In particular, the views of the people within them. Below, I have accumulated a representative portion of people within gaming development, PR, journalism, as well as some technical people that appear important. I’ll let their own words speak for themselves. We do not support or condone the views of the people linked below. They represent themselves and their … Continue reading
In a recent tweet by the games retailer, Play Asia, it was confirmed that Dead Or Alive Xtreme 3 will not be having localised versions at all. This might seem like a disappointment to western fans, but the Asian version of the game will have English subtitles. The original tweet was to point out the reason why the game has no English localisation, which is, in their words, “due to #SJW nonsense”. It looks like the culture wars in gaming, culture wars propogated by sites like Kotaku, culminating in the creation of the #GamerGate pushback, is finally having a lasting effect on the gaming industry for the negative. Soon, the western market might be seen as too toxic for Japanese … Continue reading
Tree of Savior is the Second Coming of Ragnarok – International Closed Beta Test First Week Impressions
Tree of Savior is being touted as the spiritual successor to Ragnarok Online, one of the most popular Korean MMORPGs to hit the market. The game is developed by IMC, with development being headed by Kim Hakkyu, the original creator of Ragnarok Online. It features something like 80 classes to choose from, and has a jointed map approach to gameplay, similar to that found in Ragnarok. We managed to grab a closed beta test key and check out the game. For an MMORPG, some players might find the character creation a little more simpler than they’re used to. As Tree of Savior is a pseudo-sprite based game, there isn’t really much opportunity for really chiseling out an intricate model of … Continue reading
Yesterday, an article from a games developer appeared on the gaming news website, Polygon, as an opinion piece. This piece is titled: “The mobile games market is an absolute mess, thanks to you”, and is written by Aksel Junkilla, CEO of BugByte. In this article, he effectively blames gamers for the lack of success that his game has seen on the mobile market, despite it being shilled by both Apple and Google. You can find the original article here, or the archive here. Below we’ll be discussing, responding and possibly even countering the original author and their entitlement complex. A mobile game my team and I poured our hearts and souls into is receiving rave reviews from users. The game, Battlestation: … Continue reading
