Yes.A lot of stuff from the Yakuza games is being cut,especially things relating to hostesses and massage parlors.If you are a mafia style person in Tokyo,and spending much time in red-light districts,it's only normal you will be hanging out with hostesses. Here is a big list of things that got cut from the western version of Yakuza 3.

http://forums.sega.com/showthread.php?322120-Full-list-of-cut-content

Tokyo Mirage Sessions ♯FE is a JPRG which it's western release had sexual-themed stuff removed from it as well.

Some people say political correctness held back Mass Effect Andromeda's potential,because the developers purposely tried to make the women look not too attractive,otherwise they were worried SJW's would say the women are sex objects,and the story tried to show how men and women were equal.I guess it was a missed opportunity since the game takes place in a new galaxy,but has only 2 new races,but the developers were focusing on gender equality.

That's an even more shame now T_T
I've been hearing a lot of good stuff on Yakuza games, the first and second game is getting a remake with all the good reception Yakuza Zero is getting.
I'm pretty sure something was cut from that as well. if not then great, if so not surprising.
Tokyo Mirage Session (from what I hear) is mostly costumes and designs in the characters. Such as Cleavage Tsubasa Oribe's Dress or a battle armor from an enemy NPC. Still a cut is a cut. but it's not a cut I guess, more like redesign (because some people are allergic to cleavages)
And I didn't about that in Mass Effect: Andromeda part. Mass Effect series (Shepard's story) has a lot of pretty women though, by that time SJWs aren't that serous about it yet.
by Andromeda's time SJWs are booming in the world and they aren't a good thing. by the saying "both men and women are equal" implies that men in the game aren't looking good. Hey, I can tell a good-looking man when I see one too y'know hahaha by that It kinda gave me the idea that SJWs and Feminists implying men and women should equally be ugly. Me? I prefer all of my Men and Women to look fabulously and somehow people don't think like that often haha
Meanwhile Japan bars and get really strict on Violence. Gears of War 4 almost didn't came to Japan due to its strong violence though.
Although I don't hear much from Japan censors or not getting released games in the West, maybe I'm just not looking in the right place
Either way both sides get demerits from their culture.
I wish we gamers get the best of both sides! There's nothing wrong in Violence in video games and sexy hot characters putting it like SJW term women are sex objects if they're sexy is almost like body shaming them. Plus come to think of it, How do SJWs want their gals anyway?
Like what they should be unfit with lots of baby fats even though they're a soldier or athletic characters?
haha

I believe some story content was cut from Tokyo Mirage,such as a story segment that shows a guy whom is obsessed with taking photos of girls in bikinis.

Many SJWs said the women in the first 3 Mass Effect games are too pretty,and it makes them look like sex objects.Then,SJW's complained the women in ME Andromeda being made to look unattractive is disrespectful to women,and is 'othering' women.The developers are damned if they do,but they are damned if they don't.

I've heard Japan edits out extreme gore and torture from games.If I may say so,I haven't experienced any SJWs from Japan or Asia.Every confrontational SJW I've met is from a western country.I hope I didn't sound blind in when I talked about western political correctness,because even though the Japanese government censors games,lots of SJWs whom are not politicians,but people in general in western countries constantly complain about how games are sexist and racist.

I've seen lots of western female gamers complain Uncharted is sexist,so that's why the developer of Uncharted started listening to the leader of one of the feminists organisations about how she thinks they should develop an Uncharted game,and they did it so they made the character Chloe suddenly become Indian,and changed her appearance to make her Indian,and made the game focus on 2 female characters.

I saw a western game reviewer complain AkibaStrip is sexist against women,even though the game lets you rip the clothes of men and women.

Yeah, it's sad to see that SJWs' ignorance make more impression than the actual intended audience like the players and and buyers of the game.
Mass Effect franchise proved that much. We will never know what those people actually do want with female characters in games.
Well, Western countries are prudish is you ask me at the same time Eastern countries (especially Japan) are squeamish.
Either way they censor some things in video games just as much as the other.
and yeah you're kinda right though, I only hear complaints in Western countries about SJWs I guess they are more active there since Politics and Media are always open for them to hear what they have to say. I'm starting to think there are no SJWs in Japan or Asia(not as much as and not as loud-mouthed as the ones in the west anyway)
I guess Japan censors Extreme Gore and tortures in media because of their law. (maybe I'm not sure)
Y'know like how they pointlessly censor Doujins in Anime Fan books and such I know it's R-18 or something but it's kinda similar to that.
Mosaic censoring! in video games less gore or....... no gore.
also I've never heard of Female gamers complaining about Uncharted though, I don't see that matter of Chloe not being Indian though. What's the angle actually?

PS: Akiba's Trip is equally ridiculous to both men and women, the Male characters even have Strip Cut-in picture.

An aspect I like about Persona 5 is the way it has many villains,that represent a whole range of sinful acts,and evil deeds.The things the villains do has an affect on the other characters in the game,including characters you will really care about,because you will spend much time getting to know them.The game shows how the bullying and harassment really affects the characters mentally,and when you go into the Mementos and remove the evil from the bad people who are doing things to hurt the good people,it does feel satisfying.

Here are 2 characters that I have grown fond of,but I had to rescue them from bullies,but not in a typical way,but by going into a dungeon and facing the bullies where people's hearts are kept.

Should we colonize Venus instead of Mars



Some scientists say we should colonize Venus instead of Mars.

High up in Venus's atmosphere,the temperatures are not too dissimilar to Earth's surface temperatures(roughly between 30 c to 70 c).

High in Venus's atmosphere,the atmospheric pressures are also similar to that of Earth.Atmospheric pressure is important because water boils at very low atmospheric pressure.If you were on Mars without a pressurized suit,you would actually boil,rather than freeze in it's temperatures,which can be as low as -120 c in winter,to 20 c in summer.

In theory,if you lived high up in Venus's atmosphere,you could walk outside wearing just an oxygen mask and a heat suit.To walk around on the surface on Mars you would need a pressurized suit,that delivers oxygen.This means,you would have a more comfortable time walking around the upper atmosphere of Venus.

Mars's low gravity means you would lose bone and muscle mass,and it could lead to health problems and cardiac problems.The gravity on Venus is similar to Earths'

Mars has such as thin atmosphere,and a weak magnetic field,so people on Mars will be exposed to cancer-causing UV,unless they constantly stay in shelters with thick shielding.Venus's thick atmosphere provides better shielding from UV.

Venus is most frequently the closest planet to the Earth,although there's times in Mar's orbit that makes it closer to the Earth.But most of the time,Venus is much closer to the Earth than Mars is.

The problem is,we need to find a way to make colonizes that can continuously stay high in Venus's atmosphere.

Here is a video from scientists who explain why Venus might be a better planet to colonize before Mars.

The reason why there's a speed of light barrier
.
It's about the universe needing a speed limit,so energy can create mass,which is needed for matter,and there would be no time or space without a speed limit,because all locations would communicate instantly.There are some subatomic particles,which in theory,can travel faster than light.

Never believed in the light barrier. Infinite universe infinite possibilities.

I believe there are ways to get around a light barrier without breaking the laws of physics,such as warping space and wormholes.The Earth is moving away from certain parts of the universe at faster than the speed of light,even though the Earth isn't accelerating faster than the speed of light.

I've purchased Root Letter,Tales from the Borderlands and Game of Thrones. Everytime I try to install Game of Thrones,My PS3 freezes. I paid only 8 AUD for it,and luckily not full price,but still,this is annoying,and another reason I don't want the future of gaming to become all digital.

i've been enjoying Root Letter,so far. It's mystery story is interesting. It's like a visual novel,but you need to scan the environments for clues,a little bit like in Danganronpa,but less focus on exploration. However,it's style of visual presentation and narrative reminds me of Trace Memory and it's sequel Another Code R.

Completed one story arc playthrough of Root Letter,and it's story has some good plot twists,which make the story unpredictable.It starts off as a mystery story,about trying to find a girl who was a penpal of the protagonist,who disappeared 15 years ago.The story takes some big twists,and becomes much more.This is after only one story arc. I'm doing another story arc now,which gives the story a different feel,and I still have another 3 more story arcs remaining after this one.

Sounds like a great game, I put it on my Steam watch list to pick up at some point. How long is taking you to get through each story arc?

The first arc took me about 5 hours.The 2nd arc took me only around 1 hour,because I could skip certain chapters and text I've already read :) The game has a rating of 9 on Steam.

From the looks of it Root Letter has a really great art, now that has my attention.
I've never played Danganronpa yet, any of the games. but I am planning on getting them in Steam once I got enough money and it's on sale.
that way I may have a grasp on mystery Visual Novels plus some people are actually suggesting Tokyo Dark to me. that got my attention too.

It's artstyle is beautiful. I like how it looks beautiful,but has a mature style too.The natural scenery and lakes look beautiful.The darker scenes have a bit of a Noir style feel. I managed to platinum the game. Each story arc makes the story feel very different,and it's hard to explain without giving away spoilers,but the story is interesting and unique.

I've completed the first chapter of Tales of the Borderlands,and I must say I find it's storytelling fairly enjoyable.Telltale games sure do know how to create enjoyable narratives,even though their games are marred with technical issues.I must say I didn't beat the first Borderlands FPS game,because I'm not a big fan of FPS games,and Borderlands is over 20 hours long,and didn't have much of a story to keep me going.But,Tales of the Borderlands has exciting story moments,and characters that I care about.There's something about a character,who talks in a eerie robotic voice,but wears a hat that looks like something from Japanese folklore that I like.

I guess so far,the story for ToTB feels a bit like Sci Fi meets Mad Max and Wild West.

So far,I've enjoyed the stories Telltale has done for The Walking Dead(very emotional,and this is coming from someone who doesn't even like The Walking Dead TV series),Batman(even though I'm not a fan of the Batman universe),The Wolf Among Us(very creative story and atmospheric).I still need to get around to the Guardians of the Galaxy game.And yes,I know there's a Wolf Among Us sequel coming.

I've completed Tales of the Borderlands(and obtained my 46th platinum).

I think the story was good for the first 4 and a half chapters,but the final half of the 5th chapter felt a bit silly,and dragged on much longer than it needed to.

But anyways,it was a great,and interesting story.

It's kinda like Firefly meets Mad Max.

I won't return to Persona 5 just yet,because I'm going back to Thailand in a few days,and I leave my PS3 in Australia.I could bring my Vita with me,but I don't like to play games much when I am in Thailand.I tend to play games much more often when I am in Australian when I'm alone and bored.But,on my backlog,I have Persona 5,CSI Fatal Conspiracy,Senran Kagura: Estival Versus,Tales of Thrones(even though when I try to install it,it freezes my PS3).
