DATAFIST PUNCHES AT FACTS (MONSTER MONPIECE CENSORSHIP)
For those of you who don’t know a game called Monster Monpiece will be coming out soon and 40 out of 300 cards have been censored for graphic content. As per usual American and European fans have shown concern, anger, feelings of insult, and just good old fashion rage.
Now we have had several incidents of this fashion in the past the main one that comes to mind is the Yakuza 3 American Release. Fans were angry because content was taken out due to some graphic nature and some things were taking out because the Japanese developers didn’t think we would get the point of the content, or find the content appealing.
The difference in these two cases is Yakuzas content was taken out due to the difference in cultures. Monster Monpieces content was taken out on the case of cultural laws. In other words some cards appear to have underage girls on them in Graphic clothing and in the rub down content.
Now while I do support the no censorship on this game (mainly because I don’t like to know that a game has been altered because of some element outside of the gaming world) I must understand the plight of Idea Factory and Compile Heart. It was either censor it and sell it or not censor it it gets an AO rating and would be almost impossible to sell. I say sell the game.
What do you think? Did Idea Factory make a right call? Would you go the extra mile to buy the game if it was AO?
