So you probably heard about this nonsense by now. Koei Tecmo said they weren’t going to release Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 in the US due to the current climate with gamergate and the SJWs. This of course caused an uproar from people suddenly taking an interest in a game spinoff series no one really cared about for 10 years. If you haven’t heard of DOAX, it’s just a silly spinoff series where the girls from the Dead or Alive fighting series play volleyball in skimpy bikinis. Mostly to appeal to sad undersexed teenage boys. However the first 2 games sold the best in the US which makes it more surprising it wasn’t getting localized.
Now in fairness the PS4 and X1 are region free and the site Play Asia allows people to import the game with subtitles. Though taking a quick look through the sites catalog you’ll see Play Asia specializes in a ton of anime waifu porn games. This of course led to SJWs and some game journalists to “boycott” the Play Asia site for offering the game at all.
This does show what the SJW movement can do but also that it hasn’t changed what games get made, just preventing titles from getting released stateside.
Others say that this is Koei Tecmo using this whole movement to generate hype for a game no one cared about when it was first announced.
I’d like to hear your take on this.
Are the SJWs so ugly they cannot compete with non-existent video game women?
Koei Tecmo probably just doesn’t want to go through the PR fiasco.
