The Superdeep Borehole / Re: The Japan Thread
« Last post by bork on May 16, 2024, 02:35:09 PM »
One of the first things I bought when I moved there was a pocket electronic dictionary- there was one for the Nintendo DS that was pretty popular among people I knew there at the time too.

But now you can just whip out your phone and use a translator!  Still worth studying the language if you're going to be there long-term though!

Nobody is saying that everybody in Japan is against this. I am quite certain that there's plenty of people who are just happy to see a game with the setting in Japan and think it's cool that they went with Yasuke- he had a bit of a surge in popularity a few years ago too what with an anime and sw5 too.

Ubisoft allegedly changed the original main character of this game to yasuke and I assume the female ninja. I still don't understand what the uproar about this is to be honest with you- this makes the game stand out more compared to other similar type of titles.

And I'm not sure what the tweet you posted really means. I also have a B.A. in East Asian studies from my university- doesn't make me an expert on this. Yasuke's story is vague.

That Learning the Law guy is a cac giving selective Japanese testimony to make it seem like all Japanese are against it because he’s a filthy unwashed racist.

Nah, it's getting this kind of reaction from all over.

The one comment that they got the architecture wrong and it's Chinese is interesting though

The vast majority and the loudest are white. There will always be crumbs in the edges of the seat.

Yes he is, and notice that he's not white. It's not a bunch of white people up in arms over this. Morons are every race, ethnicity, etc.

White men are always crying. They’re easily the worst gamers.

:idont

Why are they using the “he was only a retainer” argument? These dudes know nothing about samurai. Mitsuhide Akechi, one of Oda’s most loyal men, and the man infamous for betraying and killing him, was one of his retainers. Yet no one would debate Mitsuhide was a samurai. Moreover, even Hideyoshi Toyotomi, the future shogun and one of the three great uniters, was also a retainer of Oda. Essentially, being a retainer is high rank and definitely qualifies under the prerequisites of the definition of samurai. They’re just too ignorant and racist to know otherwise.

We don't really know too much about Yasuke tbh.  He may have not even been from Africa. 

He is listed as a retainer in some articles, but keep in mind that right now for some reason people are deciding to edit Wikipedia to make it fit their narrative. He was allowed to own a house and he did have a sword. But he wasn't a samurai.  Also none of this matters because it's a video game. It's not even the first time he's been in a video game for that matter. He was in samurai Warriors 5 for example.

He’s an utter fool.

Saw that Assassin's Creed Japan stars Yasuke and cacs are going insane in a frenzy. White men truly are pathetic weaklings.

Looks dope. Day one :rejoice

There are some Japanese people not liking it either- "I wanted to play as a Japanese ninja," etc.

SURPRISE BITCHES YOU *DO* play as a Japanese ninja.  The main character is a kunoichi and she is the one who does all the assassin's Creed style missions and recruits members to a plan and builds up a base. Yasuke is apparently going to be something different play wise.

For all the claims of this game being "woke" I think it's a pretty cool choice that they made with Yasuke. Makes it stand out.

Most likely not going to buy it however because ass crud games are shit. :doge

You play as a whole ass Kunoichi!

Does she not count because she’s a woman?

:mindblown

Then again there's always a new outrage every other fucking week im really done with that bullshit too
its just a lot of grifting for the wrong reasons

I never hear an outrage about the 70$ filled with microtransactions, season passed out the ass, 130$ play 3 day early edition and get these extra missions, online required to install stuff

And thats just as annoying and probably even worse for the industry

next to this entire grifting bullshit

So Ill just go watch Shogun, play Ghost of Tushima PC Port and report back on how it is :)

Ah yes Shogun, the story that makes a cac a centerpiece of the story. No problems there. It’s blackness that’s the problem.
