    Horror Game Devotion Pulled from Steam Following Winnie the Pooh Uproar


    A new horror game that released just six days on Steam, Devotion, has been pulled from the distribution platform. The game was pulled without warning but it wasn't done by Valve. It was pulled by the game's developer, the Taiwan based studio Red Candle Games.

    Though the game is only temporarily removed (more on that later), it was done following a rather hellish few days for the studio. The game has been relentlessly review bombed by a number of irate Chinese citizens and, quite...

    We have spent the last week working on solutions and have decided that we will be reverting

  • "Colin Kaepernick" Line Censored in Madden NFL 19 Song, EA Says It was a "Misunderstanding"

    Rapper Big Sean is pissed off today after learning that EA and the NFL have censored his song, Big Bank, on the Madden NFL 19 soundtrack. Editing and censoring songs isn't an unusual thing when it comes to licensed tracks in video games. However, unlike other songs that will remove curse words or other offensive words, this censoring removed a line about Colin Kaepernick from the song. This censoring looks like it was noticed first by Twitter user @jeanclervil early this morning. ...

    Germany Lifts Seven Year Ban on Fallout 3

    Germany, being Germany, banned Fallout 3 in 2009 due to its violent content. A censored version was eventually released there but as the Internet will make damn sure it tells you: censorship sucks. Why lift the ban now? Because Bethesda wasn't going to put up with that crap and "initiated a difficult and rarely-successful trial" with the Federal Department for Media Harmful to Minors.

    They won.

    Capcom Edits Butt Slap Move in Street Fighter V; Fans Complain of Censorship

    R. Mika returns to the Street Fighter franchise after being absent since Street Fighter Alpha 3. Her original reveal for Street Fighter V featured a move where she slaps her butt alongside a finisher where she and her partner, Nadeshiko, split open the legs of the enemy while squishing them with their butts.

    Capcom decided instead to change some of the camera work and alter her move set a bit so that the butt slap is out of frame and the split move is apparently no longer...
