Nier: Automata Vs The risk of censorship in the West

***NSWF!*** You know, when I wrote my “Nier: Automata – Sexy cosplays and fan art is on the rise” post I couldn´t help to wonder whether or not “Automata” will be free from censorship in the West…Because I think it´s safe to say that the game (and its female characters) have already earned a 10/10 lewd grade (at least, in my… READ FULL STORY AT THEGG!

Soundtrack of PlatinumGames’ The Wonderful 101 Being Removed Director and Composer Reflect

PlatinumGames announced that the original soundtrack for their Wii U exclusive The Wonderful 101 will be taken down from all online retailers by December 31. The soundtrack was originally release in Japan on September 15, 2014, following the game’s release in 2013.

I’ve said this before, but if there’s one phrase that sums up TW101’s soundtrack, “hymns to heroism” would be it. As you’ve probably figured out if you’ve played TW101, I’ve loved superheroes ever since I was a kid.
