I see there is a PR clusterfuck that is now going down with this game: http://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2012/12/04/hijinks-square-say-threaten-hits-on-your-friends/
Classy! Especially the bit about wanting to kill someone because their tits are too small. A problem we can all relate to, no doubt...
What are they playing at, eh?
Yeah..... you have to wonder who the hell creates these things in the first place and then what moron/s sanctions them. It really puts the games they're trying to promote into a bad light (I don't accept that any/all press is 'good' press) and reflects poorly on the industry as a whole from the devs to the gamers.
I wouldn't normally wish anyone to lose their job, but these jokers are taking the piss now and seem to be morbidly obsessed with aggressive behaviour towards women in particular in order to sell a few games... it's not cool.
