I dunno, I feel like that all these "titillating" games are such limp-wristed attempts at being sexy. If you wanna make a porn game, make a goddamned porn game! Have their tops come off, have them have sex, who cares?! Obviously you'd have to space it out so the nudity is earned, which probably stimulates, like, ALL the reward centers in a brain, but I figured it was because platform holders or something, but that comment from Koei Tecmo when the (just awful) version of Dead or Alive _ hit PC a year or so ago showed me differently.
“We have to deal with mod issues from an IP holder perspective,” he explains.
“We would like to ask PC users to play our game in good moral and manner. Otherwise, we won’t be able to release a title for PC again.”
So it's an IP holder perspective? The women can be ogled relentlessly for spank material, but don't you mod it so that tiny piece of fabric comes off and exposes a nipple! I'm not even trying to moralize here, if they want to make spank material, great, if people also think that's shitty of them, also great! Conversations about this stuff are good for creating perspective.
I'm simply of the personal opinion that if you're going to try to sell me spank material in the age of the internet, you'd better damned well be making actual spank material. There's plenty of games on consoles that show plenty of T&A, and Blu-Ray versions of animes shown on TV have boobs galore, so what's this weird stigma about actually taking clothes off in Japanese spank titles? Spankables?
