You can now support Suitably Bored on Patreon!


Hi guys I have been running Suitably Bored for the past 2 years without asking anything from my regular readers, and as some of you know I have recently moved into a new house. And unfortunately the new area does not have any broadband connectivity, so I am forced to use a mobile service provider. Which costs a fair amount of money per month which is an unexpected expense on my side, rather than plastering my blog/facebook page with paid for adverts I would rather ask my regular readers for a Patreon donation to keep my blog/facebook running. Your donation will ensure that I keep writing and posting the best possible content on my blog and facebook page. Support Suitably Bored here.

I’m getting too old for this shit

9c93abc839Since Fallout 4’s release and my subsequent addiction to said game I have gone down deeper into the post apocalyptic world. Building my settlement, exploring and soaking up all the lore the game has to offer. The downside too all of this I have been spending more and more late nights in front of my PS4, now if it was a younger version of myself then it would not have been a problem in itself. But I am no spring chicken anymore and I am midway to the big 40, so when a spent a late night playing Fallout 4 and need to be up again at 4:30 the next morning for work I can definitely feel it.  I have dubbed it “Middel Aged Gaming Hangover“or “MAGH” for short. Coincidentally it is the same sound I make when my alarm clocks goes off after a late night gaming session. And as Roger Murtaugh said from Lethal Weapon: ” I am getting too old for this shit…”

No plans to bring Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 west

It seems that Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 will not be receiving a Western release according to a comment made by the game’s official Facebook page, with publishers Koei Tecmo stating that the reasoning behind this is due to the ongoing debate in the region surrounding the representation of women in video games. Responding to a question regarding whether or not the game would make it to US and EU regions, Dead or Alive’s official Facebook page relied with the following statement: “We do not bring Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 to the west and won’t have any plan change in the future. Thank you for asking.” When asked for their reasoning behind this decision, the page responded:

dead-or-allive-xtreme-3-ps-vita-ps4-screenshots-006“Do you know many issues happening in video game industry with regard to how to treat female in video game industry? We do not want to talk those things here. But certainly we have gone through in last year or two to come to our decision. Thank you.” To everyone that ridiculed or branded me as misogynists and those of us who were concerned about Anita Sarkeesian and the Social Justice Warrior brigades fear mongering moral authoritarianism and the effect it would have on the industry gaming industry, I fucking told you so did I not? But you were too busy demonizing us to see it coming.

I have been saying all along there is definitely a discussion to be had about the portrayal of women in games, but Anita’s way is foul, dishonest and toxic and she should not be allowed to be part of the discussion. But people were too interested in propping up her victim hood status and turning every criticism into a gender issue. And to those people saying the game did not sell well in the west: According to Vgchartz, the DOA franchise sold over twice the amount in the west than Japan, 57.4% of sales compared to 26%. So even going with the sales figures from that, the west is a huge market for this game compared to even their own country.

DOA5New-3I think it pretty well seals it, the decision is based purely off the moralizing bullshit we’re facing rather than a decision for business reasons. From people who were never going to buy the game in the first place. I have no interest in the game myself but it sets a dangerous precedent if foreign developers start pulling games from western releases because they fear a politically correct mob that was never going to give them any business in the first place. I really hope that other Japanese developers don’t take Koei Tecmo’s statement to heart. It would be depressing to see Japanese developer’s en-masse sliding back into changing their games for the Western market.
