So according to Wikipedia, some British fag got the game banned from Japanese stores. However cockroach porn and shiteating fetishes are still in full swing XFD
i say leave that bullshit alone, is it retarded? yes? is it depraved? yes? is it art? probably not, but some wierd ass assholes would probably call it that, who the fuck am i to judge, at the end of the day its a video game, granted, a really shitty video game, but still a video game, it shouldnt be banned, fuck censorship, whoever wants to play it, play it, for those that find it offensive, dont.

To comment on the quote above, I always find it ridiculous as well that people don't bat an eye at killing others in games, yet sexual games strike controversy (okay I understand about rape, but other sorts of acts?) However, yesterday I overheard a conversation which fits nicely into this post. I heard a girl saying how she was raped at some point in her life, and how now her brother had been robbed at gun point. She said that he was being a panzy about the whole thing, and that she would rather be robbed at gunpoint a 1000 times, with the risk of getting shot or killed, than be raped again.
Who goes into stores for these games anyway? It's all about Comic Market and DLSite, yo.
japanese sex culture really is the cultue shock part of the culture shock that westerners feel in japan. just look at some jp porn. not my thing but most of the women cry or act like they have been completely taken advantage of. i guess the japaense look at it as softrape or whatever but it's weird and wrong. women are opressed in japan. not in the sense that the islamic world opress women but it's still opression.
i have a friend in japan that worked for a company and she would tell me that she would have to go out with older co workers for drinks and even with her boss. she didn't like it at all. so i said just don't go if you don't want to. she said i have to. it's the japanese way. I must.
i think japan is a nice country but western individualism is so foreign to the japanese. japan is a great country. but once you live there you realize how awsome and culturaly free the west is. (us. eu, canada, aust, israel) i think the easiest japanese to form a solid honest friendship with are the ones hat have lived/studied in the west.
I finally got around to playing this btw, it's a huge chore unlocking everything and the unlockables are just the photo stills from the game you've already seen. Whoever it was said it was "interactive porn" was right on target.
Also the extra disc has some messed up shit. Picture (NSFW): http://img704.imageshack.us/img704/2479/botuplay.png
On topic, I'm absolutely against censorship like this. I think it's just downright wrong to start putting that shit into law. Nobody should be allowed to regulate what I draw or what kind of media I look at.
This isn't even remotely new, either. There's hundreds of these kinds of games in Japan already, politicians are just using this to gain a political advantage, just like they used to with violent games in the past. Just like before, people are buying into it, it seems.
@TRM: That comparison would only work if her brother was killed.
I heard of this game in 2006. I am surprise this game took so long for the N. American to take notice. There are a lot of sick porn game in Japan long before Rapelay. There is another by the same developer called Biko. This game allows you to stalk women and then rape them as you wish.
It's not as fun unless they ban it though.
Ahh, defending H-games.
There are many games like this in Japan. Maybe not this graphic
