Is there actually any legit rumour pointing to Google entering console market? It's gonna be too many fucking systems on the market. I already ditched xbox this gen, but I could see google delivering some interesting unlike MS.
If they do it's probably be some Online style thing anyway, not really a new console in the traditional sense.
Microsoft seems to be wanting to bail out of it in the first place.

It came out on PS3 too and runs on PS3 emulators:

https://gematsu.com/2019/03/sega-halts-judgement-shipments-and-digital-sales-in-japan-following-actor-pierre-takis-arrest

So one of the digital actors in Sega's Yakuza spin-off Judge Eyes got arrested for Cocaine use.
Therefore of course Sega has to pull the game from stores including digital (aka physical copies now shooting up in value)
No word on if it will delay/affect the US release

Which led me to finding out Sega did this before with Yakuza 4. One of the 4 main protag actors/VA got busted for cocaine use and so when Sega did the PS4 remaster they changed his character actor to another actor and had the new actor come in and redub all his lines for the entire game.

Japan is crazy serious about their drug stuff. It's incredibly dumb.

pulling a game completely from all store shelves and removing all references to the game on company social media because one dude who plays a criminal overlord in that game got busted for drugs is maybe a bit over the top. :lol they probably will replace the guy too so expect a delay.

the dude played Olaf in Kingdom Hearts 3,too, and Square Enix is re recording all of his lines. it's this something mandated by law or something? it seems extreme and insane. coming form the u.s.if be surprised if an actor WASN'T using cocain.

I get this but would you want your company to be associated with cocaine? Especially when your main selling IP is targetted at kids (Sonic)? Cut those ties off. It's basic PR #101.

I think a statement would've been enough: "We condemn yadda yadda, we were just as shocked as you etc etc ".
To be honest i find all this kind of shit dumb on principle, as a consumer i have no delusion that plenty of people at companies involved in children's product and entertainment, don't blow coke off of a hooker's tits every Sunday, nor do i care, but i get that it's more of a formal thing.
On that level i get it, but again, this seems way overboard given the offense, it's not like this guy had a rape dungeon or something.

Also, because he's part of the band Denki Groove, they're pulling albums of the band off the shelves.

Yes, it's overkill. Also note that after Rurouni Kenshin creator got arrested for tons and tons of child porn the manga is still on sale and they've just released the Jump Force game with Kenshin in it.

Disney is also replacing him as Olaf's voice actor in Frozen.  This also means that Square is going to remove and replace him in Kingdom Hearts 3.

Shit's ridiculous- how about spinning it so that he needs help and get him to rehab or whatever instead of just erasing his career?  But this is how things happen over there.  Same shit happened to pro wrestler Ayako Hamada and that Yakuza 4 actor who got replaced (although he apparently quit acting out of disgust towards how he was treated).

It's interesting reading the thread on era and seeing certain posters in Asia that think this is totally fine and that the west is way too light on drug use repercussions. Cultural differences, damn.

Like any party I go to, whenever "what drugs have you done" comes up, there's always a couple people that did coke at least once or twice in the past. A lot more that have done e/molly. Even here on the bore a bunch of people have done harder drugs and it's no big thing.

Yeah, similarly no interest in drugs at all, but it's not a sin to me. Don't have it in me to judge anyone for wanting to feel good so long as nobody else is harmed by it.
I will side-eye for stuff that carries a high addiction risk though.

It might be BC on the Bone. I always hoped to 1cc it but my training never got very far. The game is just so long for a blaster and the whole contra lose your weapons if you get hit is so unforgiving. Game is so damn good tho

With the PSN sale going on I might as well shill for Momodora Reverie Under Moonlight and Keroblaster both of which are on sale. If you are looking for some new stuff to play they are worth checking out.

Speaking of Keroblaster, all the reviews of it that I've seen say the game is around 2 hours long. Which is weird because it's at least 6-8 hours long...

AFAIK Sega only has like 3 classic series that have had any sort of home commercial success that’s worth writing home about

- sonic games in general
- altered beast
- Virtua Fighter
- Jet set Radio

Like nobody played panzer dragoon or dreams or that shit with the chick that danced in space. That’s why the series died

New Quake engine (!) game from 3D Realms.

This is a great idea: use the now-free engine and a bunch of devoted, practiced, savvy mod community devs to produce a nostalgia-driven game. It's a great use of resources; I wonder if it can sell.
