lol that was funny. idk maybe they see realistic sexualized stuff way worse than cartoon things (anime).

kinda like the things family guy does is ok because it's a cartoon but if it was a live action show no way would it be on public tv lol.

If your definition of censorship is this loose, literally every platform that offers media censors content. Why you choose this hill as the one to die on solidifies my fact that it's weird as hell.

You're moving the goalpost to the definition of the word censorship, for God knows what reason. It's a fact that Sony is forcing extra restrictions on what releases on their systems, and that's what has people upset. If you can't understand that or insist on arguing semantics, I'd have to agree with the Brick Wall thing.

GTA 5 was censored for sexual content, though:

 

Spoiler

as were other gtas so it is not as if this is a new thing.

So people are not upset about censorship in general, just that Sony has harsher restrictions on what is allowed on their platforms than other companies? Because it's preventing them from seeing some half dressed anime titties?

This is why I laugh when you guys frame it as a freedom of speech/anti-censorship issue. Just say you're upset that you can't see the anime titties. Don't try to frame the argument as some grand fight for our rights. I'd respect your stance much more.

I'm convinced you've seen these buzzwords used online when people debate and have no idea what they actually mean.

Did you not explicitly state that the problem people have is that Sony is imposing harsher restrictions than other companies? That implies you acknowledge that every company is guilty of "censorship" as they all have guidelines on the type of content allowed on their platform. Therefore, the issue isn't censorship but the "extra" censorship that Sony imposes. And this "extra" censorship seems to only apply to half naked anime girls as there are plenty of examples of nudity and sex in AAA games. Therefore, you are only upset about not being able to see anime titties, not about censorship. However, you know that that is a weird thing to be upset about so you try to reframe the discussion as a fight against censorship and for free speech to make it more palatable.

Should have simply had you banned after your first five blatant troll posts.  I wonder if its too late.  I bet a single sentence report could probably still get it done.

Anybody else?

He had his own opinions that didn't play well with the majority of people here, so it was deemed as actively trolling. Whether he was objectively wrong or not shouldn't have played any part in his account status. It's not like he was harassing the others, simply replying in a way that didn't just constantly agree with everything around here.

He was strawmanning; misrepresenting the argument to make it easier to attack or belittle.

I got a email saying delayed too. What I get for trying to use GCU, get my game almost a whole month behind Amazon, and now I might not get it at all lmao.

Well, predictably, here's the first wave of smashed PQ2 PE's at $43.79

https://smile.amazon...8&condition=all
Actually considering it since my initial $68 preorder was 90% likely to arrive just as damaged.

 

For those of you who were shipped a pancake via envelope, how ding'd did that art book arrive?  Also how's the game?

 

Apparently there's 2 at my local best buy's inventory. I was going this morning anyway to hunt for today's Cold Steel II release.  Let's see if I can rescue them before they get spiderweb'd.

Got my Amazon order of Persona Q2 Premium Edition today. Thank goodness they shipped it in a box. Was a little worried after some folks posted pics in this thread of their crushed boxes from being shipped in bubble mailers. There was no padding in the shipping box, but it was a pretty decent size to the point that the item was in perfect condition upon arrival.

These got picked up pretty quickly. They only have the $50.91 "very good" left. I grabbed one of the "acceptable" $43.79, which is usually this decent quality returns and not preowned.

 

I also had a preorder that should be arriving today. Hopefully that's in good condition, as it shipped with two other items. Would love to be able to return the full price one and keep a dinger, if that works out.

Mine shipped today! I shouldn't have doubted Best Buy.

Anyway, odds of this becoming valuable? Aw, who am I kidding, I was going to double dip to support the franchise.

The Etrian Odyssey franchise.

Mine was just shipped, expected to be delivered on the 6th, so still 2 day delay from release date delivery.
If persona Q was any indication, it's not gonna be rare.

Not truly rare by any means, but should hold value decently.  A complete Q PE is currently going over $100.  Amazon is now out of stock of Q2's (again).
