It was brutal to watch, but I just don’t see how it isn’t justified in the eyes of the law. Like cut and dry.

Murders in Philly are up 38% YoY, along with multiple cities showing even larger increases in murder rates. Yet that will never be discussed on this website even though it affects far more black people than police shootings. Let’s also take in the fact that on one hand the police were 10ft away from a knife wielding Read more

and WHY were they horribly executed?! could it be that the executive decision to shove the skeleton of a shitty game engine onto another studio with 9 months left to deliver, conceivably may not have been the best idea?! im no industry expert, but that seems like a shitty idea that couldn’t possibly produce good Read more

Considering how poorly this game sold, the execs might actually have been...right?

I read the same thing in this exact article. But there is nothing in the game that will force your player to do the same thing. There’s no Japanese player hovering over your shoulder saying “Go bow to that shrine!”

And my previous point still stands. Anyone suffering from PTSD from the idea of bowing at a shrine are Read more

That’s not true! They do what games are making a lot of money, their mistake is assuming that they need to copy this game in order to make any profit.

They should’ve done summer if they wanted to feature Japan, with all the bon festivals it could’ve been pretty cool.

This is the most sensible comment in this entire article’s comments section. If all else fails, follow the money.

That’s unfair. They weren’t shown the final product from the word go, they were presented with just a 5-page document describing what they would be wanting to do with it. Maybe their “Vision Document” wasn’t able to properly express the game’s eventual quality, and the then-recent disaster with Colonial Marines made Read more

All of the main sims in my neighborhood are, by design, from Eastern Europe (more specifically, they’re designed with Russian, Finnish, and Baltic influences in terms of looks and names.) If they go to Sim-Japan and see a Shinto-inspired shrine, they’re probably going to look at it with puzzlement and not know what to Read more

SEGA, like *EVERY* major corporation in the world, has US headquarters. It’s doubtful the decision ever made it out of the US. And that’s before we get into ‘majority ownership’ and the like, which dictates who actually CONTROLS a company.
