It won’t have much of an impact. If anything, Xi Jinping seems quite desperate to go the way of the USSR with all of this arbitrary stupid nonsense. “China wants to lead the world!” Has now become that plus regulating things like video games and online tutoring because foreigners might make money.
Look, you might be just fine licking boots in your industry, and more power to you. The rest of us understand that “everyone does it this way” is not an excuse for anyone doing it this way. “It’s bad everywhere, so we should just give up trying to make it better anywhere,” is a cowardly, lazy outlook.

I’ll add another...
There are...at least three obligatory postings when ‘bees’ are mentioned. I’ll just go with one of them.
Cyberpunk explicitly mimicked a series of flashing lights designed to inflict seizures on epileptic people and didn’t provide any warning about it; that’s just slightly different from “Video games are made of lights that flash” and saying that it isn’t is at best disingenuous (but mostly just a very stupid thing to… Read more
Actually, Cammy looks correct. She’s just not the version of Cammy from modern SF games. This is Cammy’s original design, as can be seen in at least the first game she appeared in, which is “Super Street Fighter II: The New Challengers”, a game for the SNES (Super Nintendo) console. Here’s a picture of her sprite from…
Hey, Kotaku. I’ve been in the video game industry for 12 years and have been following your blog as my favorite video game news source since, I believe, before that.

Can’t believe Colonel Sanders would cheat on Rena Ryuugu like that.
Too sad that the same country that made such beautiful protest music and creative art just around 50 years ago, now has a group of morons asking for the president to reinstate military dictatorship. I guess it’s the price we pay for corruption schemes leaving education, morals and politics in a trashed state. Read more
Hope they didn’t use the same marble for both photos....
“We didn’t fuck up, you assumed we fucked up!”

Sometimes old emblems stay in use, despite some negative connotations they have gathered after their inception. Finnish Air Force Academy still uses the old ceremonial flag that has the symbol used by Air Forces and other branches of the military from 1918 to 1945. Read more
Ah, that is an issue and remains one. Both the ground and sea components of the Self Defense Forces (Japan’s constitutional military, effectively the country’s postwar army and navy) use the rising sun flag, or a close variation (I don’t know if the Self Defense Forces, as a whole, have any flag). This isn’t too… Read more
