Atelier Rorona “Really R18+ in the West”

au-totori

Australian Atelier fans seem to have been enjoying all the sexual violence on offer in notoriously depraved adults-only RPG Atelier Rorona Plus, now on sale wherever such filth can escape the censors…

That the R18+ rating somehow stuck and now puts the title on par with the gory murder-sims western gamers are more accustomed to seeing bearing such ratings seems testament to just unfavourably such content is viewed overseas – although it does at least make a change from being rated down by western gaming industry shills for being too cute.

    Australia is not "the west". First of all: It's directly below Japan. Secondly: Their ratings board are a bunch of loonies.

    "Western civilizations" is a euphemism for "white civilizations".

    Didn't Australia also ban small boobs from porn to not encourage pedophilia, regardless of the actual age of the woman?

    I'm pretty sure most "white people" don't hate smaller chests, even the american ones aren't all just into huge baloon boobs. As far as Japan goes, the "west" is just English speaking countries anyhow.

    Depends how you look at it. West also means capitalist i.e. Taiwan, Singapore, HK, Japan, South Korea, Philippines, ANZAC countries, Western Europe, now also Central and parts of Eastern Europe and USA. Vs non-aligned. Vs Eastern Bloc.

    It need not mean white per se.

    There are no more sexes or genders thanks to the facebook nonsense with 200 plus new fake genders because tumblr idiots think they're all snowflakes and can't even choose something somewhere in between male or female. And our color doesn't matter anymore, since we're all screwed by the same people. So pretty much nothing sticks anymore and nobody knows what the fuck they're talking about without being offensive to someone. So now it just comes to everything being offensive and children can't have eyes or ears lest they be deflowered by the thought of god knows what.

    So I say fuck it, from now on my denomination is "Penis American"

    Even though I got a 60% in high school history, allow me to give a high school history lesson:

    The terms East and West referred to this way are a holdover from the days when the "known world" was limited to mostly the Eurasian continent. When you hear the term "Western civilization," or more colloquially "The West," it's talking about cultures that stem from Europe, especially the Commonwealth nations (i.e. British colonies), which basically includes the US.

    That's oversimplifying it, but that's the general gist.

    If anyone is somehow still confused, look at it another way: Words in language aren't always meant to be taken literally. There's a context for everything.

    For example, saying the Australian Classification Board sucks dicks doesn't literally mean they suck dicks... although it might not be surprising if they do.

    actually, that isn't wrong, the term is not only used for geographic reference, it depends on cultural influence

    92% of the australian population are of European descent

    Yeah being in Australia is insane when it comes to ratings of things and it isn't helped by the attitudes of people either. I game like this will get an R rating but in the meantime, parents carelessly by their 8 year old kids GTA and there is nothing retail outlets can do about that.

    Hardly. Australia may be in the east as far as geography goes, but its culture is decidedly western, considering that it originally served as a prison island for British criminals.

    This is going back in ancient times but before you know the Shithole called America and the Superior country called Australia which was overthrown by convicts was discovered.

    The world was viewed only between Asia and Europe where it was linked.

    The West tends to mention those societies adopted towards the Greco-Romania Civilizations and the East tend to have Asia-Muslims and since the center of the world was viewed at the tip of Russia where Poland was that where the division of WEST and EAST was the start of Asia and the Start of Europe.

    Now fuck you loons and get some history lessons, instead of acting like complete morons and lets us Australians enjoy our Rorona PORN.

    West is also Japan and South Korea. PRC, NK is East. USSR was also east. Vanilla white East Germany was an Eastern country.

    Actually Australia was colonized by the British. Unless you're an Australian who descends from sand niggers, you descend from British and any Europeans that settled there.

    Honestly "general society" is fucked in the head - media that depicts violence is considered acceptable even to younger audiences, yet anything remotely sexual is suddenly taboo and subect to harsh scrutiny.

    makes sense right? gotta love how people have been raised the last 300 years...

    Sex is obviously bad because you ain't allowed to use contraceptives. That is because you are supposed to have children but you won't, since sex is bad.

    It's a vicious cycle of sorts.

    How in the fuck could this get a 18+ rating. I played the original, and it was completely innocuous. Did Rorona+ add a bunch of hardcore loli sex scenes or what?

    It's been awhile since I've watched Azumanga but I
    really don't remember any "coarse language" or "sexual references" in it. The worst thing I remember was when Yukari and Nyamo go drinking and Yukari throws up in the steet. The government of Oz is nuts!

    Well, the collection is rated MA15+ because of episode 4, If you bought it in volumes the volumes from 2 onwards are rated G (the lowest, "General" rating)

    Whoever does these rating are nuts, games used to get shafted harder since they were banned if they needed a R rating, now we have a R rating and every game coming out will often have one.
