It's like a feeling of independing doom. A game that you've been following for quiet some time, hoping that it will reach shores translated and untouched breaks like a fragile glass upon the floor. This isn't the first time i've been following a game and it got burned by mush.
ArcheAge, more likely than not will be censored in the west the same way TERA was censored. It's unfortunate that games have to take a wallop from outside forces but there's too much finkyness in the gaming industry and they don't want to take chances anymore.
More than likely we'll see some badly done supposed "Modesty" wardrobe regulation issued like a strict Catholic school in 1950. The creature in the above link is defiantly some sort of feline monkey species but due to it's height it's more than likely to be censored exclusively.
When I see issues like this arise it makes me loose all hope for any maturity shown by NA publishers but as hay blown over at the slightest touch of a "issue" created by those who take fantasy far too seriously. Which is why it is becoming an alternative route for me just to simply skip the "westernized" imports of games and just to stick to their original formats in their respected countries. The beneficial part is that updates come out immediatly when their released.
Until NA publishers stop juvunillizing every game they import anymore(besides turning it into WoW clones) and folks refuse seperate reality from fiction we will always have this problem and it'll always affect the games buyers choose to play whether we want it to or not.
Time for me to open up that foreign-language book and start studying again!
