    I fear the FE talk will make me salty… Oh well, let’s take a listen.

    • Steve Baltimore

      I know I’ll make you salty on it 😛

    • Josh S.

      Oh you did haha. That always happens when we have strongly differing opinions.

    I’m strongly against censorship even if it is self censorship. This means the creator is purposefully limiting himself to pander to an audience – at that point the creation stops being art and becomes a product.

    An analogy to the Nintendo/Capcom situations would be to release a book and the publisher deemed a couple of pages too offensive for the general market. They have been torn out – down the memory hole they go. From a consumer perspective, you know you are not getting a complete product – the content of the missing pages could be bad writing or the greatest lines you could read – you’ll never know.

    We passed the age where we had to censor blood and gore, now we just need to get rid of the PC censor culture. There shouldn’t be any topics that are taboo to gaming, literature and movies.

    That last discussion was on point. I really want Fates but I can’t stand NoA right now, sucks as a lifelong Nintendo fan, NoJ or someone need to tell NoA to fuck off. Great episode as always.
