PSA: Reverie for the Vita/PS4 from Play-Asia goes up in about 4 hours at 8am PST, and each is limited to 3000. This will be the first offering, with a second one being offered 12 hours later for those who miss the am offering. Game looks like a cool "Zelda" type adventure with Mother/Earthbound art styles. https://www.play-asi...info/exclusives

I found this just now as it went live.  That's not enough time to decide if I want to get it though.  Both Vita and PS4 versions are 35.

Well, you have 12 hours left before batch number 2, so that should be enough time right? LOL

I've backed 27 projects in total, of that amount 19 have been delivered as promised.

I've backed about 7 Kickstarters, mostly for anime titles, and thankfully they were all successful--though I know I took a risk with each one. I have no regrets, and thanks to those Kickstarters, several anime titles received blu-ray releases they otherwise wouldn't have. Had a few of them not delivered, I still wouldn't write crowd sourcing off. It's a system with great potential.

Report: Steam Demanding Removal of Sexual Content from Games, Threatening Removal

I have to wonder where this sudden purge is stemming from. I'm also curious how many games will end up effected by it.

One of the things I've heard speculated is that there's supposedly some kind of Washington law regarding pornography that Valve may be breaking so this is why they're cracking down.

 

The other is that there's a mass flagging campaign going on, which also sounds believable.  As I mentioned in the Steam thread one of the devs who got the notice that their game would be removed has stated that the Steam version of their game doesn't contain or advertise nudity or pornography (the 18+ version of the game is only available for purchase outside of Steam).

Yeah, I've read about that too. Makes me wonder if they'll target something like Muv-Luv or Grisaia as well since certain other games have been targeted that I'm not sure should have been. Like usual though, Valve tells nobody anything of value. Just blanket statements that don't explain anything.

Awesome, so there's hope we can still keep getting some cool English Asia releases past the US/EU cut off. Hopefully when March ends next year, they don't announce production will stop In Japan in a few more months. But with Sony, it wouldn't surprise me.

The whole situation is ridiculous. If the game's content offends you, just ignore it and move on. Unfortunately that is too complicated for some people. Developers are already forbidden by Steam to officially provide links to uncensor patches on Steam.

Everyone knows i'm an advocate for 18+ content in games, especially if that's what the game originally had.

 

Whatever it was, the lock down started after Mangagamer was forced to remove Maidens of Michael, which I've heard is a pretty pure Yuri game, from Steam. I felt bad for Mangagamer, being an advocate for them as a company, especially since it's very vanilla and I believe doesn't even have nudity on Steam.

 

We're just going back to the old days where VNs with eroge content (even if the Steam version is all ages) will be extra niche again, and nudity is bad. I wonder if this will affect bigger games like Witcher 3 though. Likely not, but Steam has a huge stigma versus these games now.

 

I'm all for games that are dreck like Sakuragames and other oh man looks at all them 18++++++++++++++++ situations games to be removed from Steam. But those are just garbage translations/games period.

 

Whatever the news, I will report for the main games being released from Jast USA, Denpasoft, and Mangagamer at least, like I have been doing.

kickstarters wise stock comparison would only make sense if all stocks were ponzi schemes and didn't have accountability and laws enforcing.

 

As for the removal steam games stuff from what I heard it was due to new laws in eu.

I'm definitely of the opinion the games on Steam are toned down enough. I'm possibly in the minority that I prefer the Steam versions over the uncensored versions for an eroge. But taking a game that already isn't explicit and further toning down the adult themes is very undesirable.

Only when it has to do with showing a nipple. You're completely free to allow gore.

So Vita physical game production is ending in the west, Steam is cracking down on sexual content in games, and Best Buy is (rumored to be) ending GCU.

 

The weeb-pocalypse is happening too quickly for me.

I was hoping that STEAM acceptance would finally mean eroge would start getting the respect it deserves, that a bigger audience and more mainstream acceptance would translate to higher profile titles and higher sales.  It took years to get STEAM to even admit that Visual Novels were games, and longer til they accepted any kind of sexual content.  Well, looks like that's all going down the toilet and I'll end up back bitching about Baldr Sky on fantranslation threads on 4chan.  Whatever, I can wait for the next chance to push 18+ into the limelight, I'm not giving up.

Google Express still offers their 20% off coupons occasionally so that can at least be used for recent games.
