Catherine Full Body - also shitstorm on the new ending

Yeah, it never fails to make me laugh that the woke crowd never failed at misinterpreting a teenager confusing interest in things outside traditional gender roles for being homosexual (in and of itself a confusion of sexuality) for him struggling with attraction to men. It makes it very obvious that very few of them have actually played the game and instead relied on the Cliff's Notes interpretation written by a few people who blithely ignored half of his storyline.
Naoto in particular is the most hilarious to me.

For the uninitiated Naoto's storyline boils down to "I want to be a man to be taken seriously at work" because she works as a young freelance detective with dreams of being an actual police detective when she grows up. She is never actually shown in game being harassed or taken less seriously because she is a woman (she presents male) and is never shown to be taken less serious because of her age (although she mentions this happens).

In addition, not only is she never shown to be harassed - she is shown to be constantly praised and celebrated. She is venerated constantly on national television as "The Detective Prince" and is apparently constantly called on to help solve tough cases country wide despite her age; meaning that she's already pretty remarkably successful despite her self-thought of handicaps.

Her story could much more strongly interpreted as people don't generally care who you are as long as you can do your job, which would be a great lesson for the twitter crowd to learn.

He's a commentator for the EVO Championship Series. Apparently he helped build the competitive Catherine scene and side-tournament at EVO.
Just to contextualize this for non-fighting game community people. Nearly anyone can commentate at EVO and it isn't uncommon to see a wide variety of people do so, doubly so for Evo's "side events". Getting a game to show up as a "side event" is a remarkably small feat and all that's required is to simply volunteer to run it as a tournament organizer. Evo will typically run 6 or more continuous streams for the various events with each stream featuring two commentators. The only "real" commentators are the ones who get to talk during Top 8 of "major" events (and that's almost always Ultradavid and James Chen).

Catherine has a competitive scene as much as the following games.
- Wind Jammers
- Puyo Puyo Tetris
- The SNES Sailor Moon fighting game
- The SNES Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fighting game.

It had 33 people enter at Evo 2018.

If David Browliet didn't run Catherine at Evo, someone else clearly would have and no one would care either way. The actual hero of the Catherine competive scene is Atlus, who upon hearing there was an audience for the game is implementing netcode for the competitive mode in the Full Body re-release.

Also as a side note there was a tranny in the top 4 ("silentblackcat") who not only beat David in the tournament but is not stopping playing competitive Catherine. David, you shouldn't be more offended than the "real" tranny about "transphobia".

Rainbows mean different things to different cultures. The fucking bridge to Earth for the Norse Gods was a rainbow.

Rainbows were even a manly concept until gays co-opted it.
Rainbows being are an LGBT thing (having inherited the imagery from the west, unsurprisingly).

Not to go too far off topic, but about Lily:

The whole idea that Lily is a crossdresser and not "really" trans or something was just something fabricated by some weirdo with an agenda. She says she "used to be" a guy.

You're free to like or dislike it, but it's basically the opposite of the Catherine thing where lefty weebs were certain that Japan was totally on their side with trans rights or whatever; Right wing weebs that were totally sure that Japan was a utopia with political correctness or anything.

I checked their list, and what a bunch of pansies.

Over half the games on said list are either specifically pandering to the tits and ass crowd or are adults only anyway, it's really just a list of things they are being prudes over.
It goes beyond simply being prudish. The SJW hivemind believes there is an ideological standard of beauty that causes many of western society's ills, including eating disorders, fat-shaming and sexual assault. The solution, as with everything else this cult cannot abide, is to bully and censor it out of existence. Because it's easier to make something disappear than get off the couch and learn portion control.

Until that magical day happens, Stalinist safe spaces like ResetEra settle for banning users who remind them sexy anime tits endure.

While true... rainbows can mean happy things, contentment, hope and otherwise are pretty to look at if on stage. Depends on the context. It's not exclusively about gays or our optimistic rating would be :gay:. Which may happen, I dunno. Null is a mystery. I'd need to watch the scene with the rainbow as I only watched the Lily episode because of the hullabaloo.

I still disagree. I'm not even basing this on that weirdo but how the episode unfolded.

"Used to be" as in he's dead. He was brought back to be Lily so that's all that matters. He loved being Lily because he was adored as such, the concept of losing his cuteness and career having killed him, so he's fine being a child forever. His father called him Masou, which means he likely went by Masou in the privacy of his home. That's not something transgenders do and his father adored his son, no way he wouldn't accept him as trans. Each character has an arc accepting their lot in unlife, this was Lily's. Plus the concept was played for laughs in a typical Japanese fashion kinda like that one island of drag queens in One Piece although that was definitely moreso. Well, except the father wanting his son back... that was sad.

The thing about agendas is Crunchyroll isn't innocent either and neither was the "media" hopping on it. Both sides had something they wanted be it clicks or their own SJW tendencies. I'm just disappointed the bullshit overrode a father having to let go of his son... that was true feels.

Until that magical day happens, Stalinist safe spaces like ResetEra settle for banning users who remind them sexy anime tits endure.
Not sure how long that'll last with China to be honest. Plus CERO apparently did shift some things around if - Criminal Girls dev is to be believed - likely to appease global influencers or busybodies, probably because of the attention the Olympics bring.

a reminder that the remaster PS4 release of Yakuza 3 actually removed side-quests involving a trans character due to being seen as offensive now,even in Japan.

There’s a side quest in Kiwami where you beat the shit out of a tranny for trying to fuck Kiryu. I doubt Sega cares about protecting the sensibilities of a bunch of dumb eunuchs in America as much as they see an opportunity to potentially increase the sales of Yakuza 3 on the PS4 by looking like they’re more progressive now.

Atlus may be bending the knee to the manufactured outrage if the voice actress of Erica is to be believed. She even goes so far as to call the Japanese version bigoted.

For those not wanting to click the link to Sankaku:
Atlus is changing Catherine: Full Body so as not to offend depraved nu-western sensibilities after complaints from transsexuals about the game’s original ending, says voice actress Erin Fitzgerald (the voice of “trans” character Erica in the original game), confirming that the localization team has tried to “adjust bigotry represented in the Japanese version.”

Catherine: Full Body offended some of the mentally ill due to one of its endings“implying that a trans character was happier for not transitioning” – unfortunately it seems the controversy made its way to the localization team as Erin Fitzgerald implied that changes may be coming to the Western version:





Other comments from Erin Fitzgerald in regards to the controversy:









Unfortunately it will be quite some time before barbarian gamers get to experience the quality of this outstandingly brave localization effort, as Catherine: Full Body is due in the West on PS4 come September 3rd.
At some point Atlus should just stick with Japanese VAs, American ones these days are nothing but trouble.

Amen.

I hope the developers stand by their work and tell the objectors to fuck off and the localization team gets told to do it accurately or clean out their desks.
Unfortunately, Catherine has already been censored.

One correction, Dx2 can be run on PC with an emulator just fine (Bluestacks is my recommendation).
