What people seem to actually be sick of is the way the industry works, and that Aya is working within that framework even after having violated the doll-like image the industry tries to maintain for morons. People are just angry at the house of cards tumbling down, and that she is still ‘alive’ amidst the ruins, and don’t understand why.

You complain about her getting attention. If you’ve ever lived a life where you’re being scrutinized by people, you would have a clue in the world that that is not ‘attention’ that any sane human being wants. It’s thrust upon you, especially when there is nowhere that you can escape it.

You complain about her twitters being for attention… but have you had a tumor before? I have… you kind of want to talk to someone about it if there’s even a suspicion. And if a taxi driver kidnaps you? Yeah, I’d imagine that’d be an ordeal for a celebrity woman. If you believe she lied about it, that’s another issue entirely, but I have no real reason to assume she did.

If she is lonely enough that the only people she felt she could express how scared she was was to her twitter followers, she gets my sympathy. If you can say something like ‘she should get some friends’ then you know nothing about what friends can become when you gain celebrity. Your life changes, as does your relationship to them. It takes very, very strong bonds to survive that. Rock stars, actors, and various A and B-list celebrities haven’t ended up in rehab or killing themselves because it’s just the ‘way it is.’ Do you have any idea how lonely it is to be surrounded by people who love you, but know absolutely nothing about you, nor really care?

That is why people will still talk about her reasonably. They have perspective. She did roles that we love, made music we enjoyed, and we’re not liking her to spite the people who don’t like her, regardless of what those morons think.

    Understand that graphics goals are already proven not to truly matter to most (not to mention ‘graphics’ means nothing overall). The dances have to be good, the models have to be clean, and the gameplay solid for what it is. The graphics involved are something more and more companies are realizing fans don’t even know what they are asking for. For example you complain it doesn’t use enough of PS4’s processing power. What does that mean to the game exactly? What are you expecting exactly? There …

  • Tomoyo After Now on Steam Greenlight:
    I was told by a friend he didn’t like it because they basically screwed all the time and wanted more of a story to it. Based on that part of my thinks a censored version may be more nominal, and yet simultaneously I’m against cutting down on anything when the original was how they wanted it. Sadly this makes me even more curious.

  • Final Fantasy VII Remake: “We’ll Change What We Want!”:
    The loss of sales you are referring to is not because of the nature of their games or a loss in fanbase based on their actions alone. FF7 was an alignment of elements in gaming history that changed the world, not just the industry. The story and characters were not THAT amazing, however the delivery was completely solid enough to be beyond everyone’s expectations, even after FF6 pretty much set the bar for the ability to make a truly dark plot. What has changed is expectation and generations. …
