'potentially offensive' my foot — this. is. harassment. he was asked to stop and did not — flat-out refused, even, arguing on-air that he and every other male present had the right to make whatever sexual and racial jokes they wanted with the 'you know i'm just playin', baby, if you take me serious that's your problem' excuse. no, we don't know exactly what was signed and how, but there's no way they didn't have some sort of exit clause available. with as many lawyers as these companies employ, i refuse to believe they were that stupid as to sign away all of their rights for this competition.

The latter, there was little Capcom could do, aside from not sponsor the event next time.

Sponsors pull support from people and organizations all the time. Why Capcom wouldn't pull support for this competition when this behavior reared its ugly head and the person/people responsible refused to realize they were in the wrong is absolutely beyond me. Their continued agreement to sponsor the competition supports this behavior, it shows the audience that it's okay to be a disgusting sexist pig because that's just how the gaming world works... and that's not right.

And I know there are other companies sponsoring the competition — MadCatz, for one — but Capcom was the biggest name I noticed there, and certainly the one I (had) trusted most, which is why as a female I feel particularly betrayed that they've condoned this kind of thing by not pulling their sponsorship. I've purchased so many Capcom games over the years, but I'll be damned if they ever get another dime of my money. I don't care if the next Phoenix Wright game is flippin' amazing and the bestest thing ever. I don't care if Layton vs. Wright ever hits NA shores, I will not be purchasing it.

@Radixxs: (a) watch the hate speech, please
(b) if no attempt is made by competition staff to shut you up or boot you from the competition, then yes, in that situation SEGA's rep would certainly be hurt in my eyes — especially if it was allowed to go on over a period of days in a format available to SEGA staff for review (the way this has been allowed to happen).

@Jumbif: sure, people are going to make idiots out of themselves, but when they're asked to stop and don't, up to the point where they go off on a rant likening sexual harassment to onions and saying what boils down to 'deal with it', that's when corporate sponsors need to take a good, long look at what they're condoning by continuing to back said idiot(s) with money. eff that guy, and eff Capcom as far as I'm concerned.

as of this point, i've gotten Hijikata, Okita, and Kazama's endings, and i'm working on Saito's. I will say the story is better the second (or third) time through, once you're already familiar with everything... now it's just the tedium of waiting for the game to fast-forward through the early choices so that you can get to the better choices later (with new conversation paths to tread), lol.

just FYI, implying that Ant's a liar isn't really the smartest move ever :3

also, @zez: KINECTaku hasn't made the switchover yet, so it's still displaying avatars at 60x60.

i haven't purchased this game myself, but having box info and manual information printed in both English and French (or English and Spanish, or a combination of the three) is quite common here in NA. Also, since this wasn't a first-party title, they might not have made the switch over to the punched-out cases yet, maybe? if they had prior stock left of the old ones they'd probably want to burn through those before making a switch to the new ones — if third parties are indeed making the switch, idk.

@Swiket: There are also forums that auto-purge threads older than (x-amount of time), and those conversations are lost forever — doomed to be repeated ad nauseum, even. Still not seeing the benefit, whether we have to physically push the button ourselves or not.

No offense, but since when have you cared about price, WaveBoy? You're constantly talking about how you've purchased the best headphones and TV sets and blah-blah-blah, so why are you hemming and hawing now over the GBC+frontlight? Just get it and be done with it, because you're just going to complain about anything else you bother with and piss everyone off in the process.

O HAY GUYS, LISTEN UP~

i know it's not happening in here, but people are flipping their lids on the main site over this announcement and I'm sorry, but I have to say this:

Please be aware that insults and/or flames are against the rules and will not be tolerated. It's gotten to the point where if I see people hauling off and lashing out at other users over their support (or lack thereof) for this announcement, I'm going to jump straight to a temp-ban — no ifs, ands, or buts. I don't care who you are or who said what first, if I catch you jumping in here with fists flying, you will be banned from posting at NL altogether. You have been warned.

again, i know it's not happening in this thread (and i love you all for that :3) , but I want to make sure I've got my bases covered in case some of the main-site crazies find their way here. And of course, if one of 'em makes their way here and tries to start anything, you all know where to find the Report button, yes? :3
