Rainbow Six: Siege Censorship Backlash

Siege has grown in to one of the most popular online games in the world. The game has changed and evolved, and fans for the most part agree that the changes are usually for the better. However, an update in regards to some changes to censor the game to reach the Asian market, have got fans upset.

Due to more strict ruling in regards to what can be shown in video games in the Asian market, Icons, gore, and suggestive content are being changed or removed.

Even though these changes may not effect game play somewhat, they do change the tone of the game. People have invested their money in to the game, because they love what it is and what it has become. By catering to outside territories there is concern that what the game has become will be forgotten for the financial gain of the Asian marketplace.

Here are some comments:

Since we cant have knives pictures, here is a new Caveira icon from Rainbow6

Remove Tom Clancy’s name from the game from Rainbow6

I assume the sharp edges are too violent to post here? from Rainbow6

What do you think about the changes to the game?

Diablo Immortal: People are pissed, for good reason

Diablo’s newest entry has been announced and I was stoked, emphasis on was. Lead game designer Wyatt Cheng walked onto the stage at Blizcon and began talking of slaying demons which got everyone’s blood rushing to kill the lord of terror once again. This was crushed as Cheng began talking of mobile devices. That’s right Diablo in your pocket.

Now, hopes began to rise as Cheng begins talking of the ending of Diablo 2 bringing hopes that maybe we’re coming back to game play we know and love and continuing on an event not really focused on in Diablo 3, that being the world stones destruction. This was followed by a cinematic trailer which i’ll be honest, is one of the coolest things ever. Check it out.

I went full disappointment after the game play trailer, as it is absolutely nothing new. if you showed me footage of Diablo 3 next to Immortal, it’d be hard to tell the difference. Same classes, hell same art for the classes, its a copy and paste just onto phones, which i wouldn’t be so mad about if they were announcing Diablo 4 or something before hand, but it looks at the moment that this is the game they want people to be playing.

Let’s give the game the benefit of the doubt and say it’s an original and extremely fun to play Diablo game. Still one huge problem, when asked if the game would be ported to PC or if it would be strictly on mobile Cheng had to say “The current plan is to be on mobile, both Android and IOS. We don’t have any plans at the moment to do PC.” Which was followed by him nearly getting boo’d off stage. The reason this is an issue is mobile’s a platform for casual gamers, its a fad platform, you play it while you’re on the toilet. Diablo on the other hand is, and has always been an in depth and competitive game, with Diablo 2’s ladder still being updated to this day.

If I were Blizzard id be begging Blizzard North to come back and make Diablo 4, I can’t see any way for the Diablo franchise to be saved from where it’s gone.  I recommend to everyone play Diablo 2 the games amazing i’v been running a hardcore play through by myself. Or if you’ve played it to death, try Torchlight 1 and 2 on steam.

Immortal’s release date is yet to be announced.
