Pqube is doing nothing, that's a ricedigital article and at best they're "having fun" reading the ESRB description of Valkyrie Drive (like, huh, other people were doing yesterday
?) and made a funny article about it, which also advertises the product they're selling... that's not clickbait.
So I'm just going to leave this here and wonder....was removing the audio really necessary if another company can get away with it?
I'm finding it hard to believe anything you guys say at this point with anything regarding the handling of this franchise. I'll give the benefit of the doubt with the first game, fine...chop it up to testing the waters with a new IP. But this is really making me feel you guys are being rather suspect right now. It was already suspect in my opinion by making changes prior to even getting a first review by the ESRB.
Anyway, I wanna see what response I'm going to get out of this.
The answer will be along the lines that the ESRB might have had issues with the sounds because the girls are in a BDSM situation which they're not enjoying, so they repetedly scream to stop while you're punishing them, coupled with the fact that the girls (at least some) are young looking might have been considered too much and could have warranted an AO rating, they said they tried to keep the moaning at least while removing just the girls screaming "no", but the audio files were the same and they couldn't separate, hence they removed both moaning sounds and voices.
The problem with the ESRB seemed to be "consent" and "power distance" as the game rewards you during a non optional minigame for punishing the girls against their will.
Now please if you excuse me I'll go get ready for when the police will come and bust my door open because I let my tamagotchi die in poop, I clearly committed a heinous crime against a fictional being made of pixels and deserve nothing short of the death penalty for my monstrous act.
EDIT: just to be clear the above sentence was just me kidding, hence it's obviously exaggerated.
