Which makes me not care enough to riot about it. Censorship is not ok, sure, but this is nothing compared to real censorship. This is not a hentai or porn game. Stop raising hell over the smallest things.

Is what I'm thinking.
Some people have standards and won't accept censorship in any form on any product, not picking and choosing when censorship is "okay" and when it is not. You are misconstruing people being disappointed with "raising hell".

To be fair it probably looks more like this on an actual PS1

The whole image was automatically blurred.

Yep. Clearly looks like she has underpants and not some bush. If they were remaking the model anyway, it would not have been that difficult to add a few straps to clearly indicate such.

But nooooo, gotta change the model entirely because someone may get offended/triggered over a 20 year old video game.

I'm trying to say that sometime, having priorities is more important than having standards.

You can have both. Just because something else is worse with its censorship doesn't automatically mean that lower levels of censorship is acceptable.
What do you mean by acceptable? Is this something that we should boycot the game for, or are we just letting off steam here? Because if you have your standards, then are you refusing buying the game BECAUSE of this, or are you just going to pout?

If someone is going to boycot this game because of this type of censorship, then I'm sorry, I can't take them seriously.

If you can have both priorities and standards, then this ff8 censorship thing is a non issue.

You are correct that I will not buy this game. I cannot support censorship. It is the principle of the matter, something you clearly lack any understanding of and I do feel sorry for you.

Sony really annoys me with their censor bullshit(More because they're most likely behind never ending delay of PS4 Uppers).

But I'd be honest here: I'd never wouldn't noticed that, simply because that yellow pussy wasn't on my mind for the last 20 years since release of FFVIII.

From a design perspective and from an anatomy perspective growing crotch wing or whatever that is , that is connected to the rest makes no fucking sense.

"We men"? Sorry ive never sexualized(?) women and dont talk for all men, the only men that sexualize are perverts or still living with mummy and daddy
Stop trying absolve your responsibility as a man? You're not being a very good ally.

So they apparently left Shiva alone? Which is kind of weird, she was always the one with less clothing usually.

Wonder if they will cover up Ultimecia’s chest and to a lesser extent Edea.

Who said this is a sony decision? You haven't even seen it on other platforms.
It's an assumption on my part. But given Sony's attitude towards Japanese games of late when a female character show some skin Sony requests they cover it up. They basically admitted they have a censorship policy back in April. So that's my basis that this is a Sony decision.

Exactly, if it's a nothing burger then why even change it?

I'm kind of with you, this really is not that big of a deal. The old design sucked anyways.

This is one of the stupidest threads I've seen in a while. The outcries over "censorship" is getting ridiculous.

Square changed a summon model up slightly. It looks better if anything. No one is forcing them to do it to "protect the children". There's no bigger picture here.

We complain about the SJWs looking desperately for things to get outraged over. This isn't any different honestly.

Just because you have no principles to stand by doesn't mean others are the same.

It's less about the censor and more about what it will affect moving forward.
It's like allowing people to take pop shots at a large dam with sledgehammers.
The damage per hit will be trivial and overlooked.
But what happens when we let it get out of control?
We'll soon be flooded with censored bullshit.

Sure, her boobs get covered up entirely and you allowed it.
When something you like gets censored just remember that you allowed it in the past.
It'll be YOUR fault.

And if you're ok with that then you need to hand over the sledgehammer immediately.

The message I take from this sort of stuff is that there's something wrong with the female body - so it has to be covered up. It's a really negative message, to be frank.

Speaking of controversy. They put that AtB/Level addition to the game. I wonder who buys a game for 20 euros and turn on cheats from the beginning...

Not that it personally bothers me seeing its a game, but it is a pretty stupid subtle change. It's like, damn, can we keep anything original? Is it that big of deal that little Jimmy sees the leave cover-up on that witch-lady? I swear society today is so fucking retarded. Like... RELAX!

We women shouldn't be required to "cover up" to avoid objectification. Males need to stop objectifying us by changing the way they think. We should not be required to accommodate their incorrigibility. Our bodies are just bodies. Censorship only serves to further push us back into puritanical standards of modesty that shame women for their bodies. Male objectification is the problem, not women's bodies. It's men that have to change, not us.
Having sexual pulsations for the woman body isn't objectification, it's literally nature.

That's not going to change, ever. I'm sorry for your ego and the ego of the rest of the crazy controlling feminists, but that's how human nature is.

Move on or keep crying that you are opressed, either way we don't fucking care.

It leads to normalizing censorship. It excuses nothing.
