I keep hearing the script was changed for For the Sequel, but what/how exactly was it changed? Any examples?
The example I know of was that the red mage sidequest involved some pretty overt allusions to sex/paedophilia (due to the age of the characters.)
For the Sequel toned that event down considerably and also aged up the characters so it wasn't as disturbing.
Square Enix toned down a few more mature bits in For the Sequel so they could sell the game with a lower rating. It's the kind of thing that actually happens with games and movies all the time except that the original, more explicit version, was also released to the public.
The costumes are definitely modified to get lower ratings in the western world, but the script was altered in Japan as well so I'm not sure if that qualifies as censorship to the same extent. The rumour I'd heard was that a higher up at S-E originally wanted the characters younger than in the original script and that For the Sequel is actually correcting that.
Look up German laws on it. You have no clue what you're talking about.
The PEGI system, in general, is a lot stricter than ESRB.
When it comes to content of this kind the BPjM is a lot less strict than the ESRB. They only start start rampaging when there is a droplet of blood around. As for the censorship itself...yeah its silly and unneeded.
Wow that needed a censor? I can pick up a kmart add right now and see real women showing much more. This is a disgusting example of just how easily offended and hypocritical people are in this goddamn country.
I really don't mind the censorship on the outfits, I mean it doesn't effect the gameplay in any way since it's just a cosmetic thing.
Besides I think the censored outfits look much better than the uncensored versions, it's not overdoing it, it's just about right. I don't get why some people are putting up a hissy fit on this to the point they decide to drop their pre-order of this game.
