Animal Crossing: New Leaf

Kotaku lied: Nintendo loves penises AND butts!

Destructoid offers a re-BUTT-al

In a recent article on Kotaku, writer Patricia Hernandez pointed out that, while Nintendo will censor asses, it has no problem showcasing a delicious penis. 

She used Animal Crossing: New Leaf as evidence, criticizing Nintendo's hypocrisy for censoring an ass in Fire Emblem while allowing Michelangelo's David to strut his stiffening stuff. Well, like her, I also have New Leaf, and I can confirm Animal Crossing is actually pretty consistent with the dong-to-derriere ratio. 

After getting a visit from art dealer Redd in my own town (the noble town of Chungus), my eyes were naturally drawn to the pebbly posterior you see before you. While Kotaku would have you believe that Nintendo is anti-bum, I have evidence that it considers both the front and the back door equally valid -- at least as far as New Leaf is concerned. 

Our scientists have zoomed in on the offending article, and enhanced the image, allowing you to have a really close look at the contours of each plump cheek, as well as observe the shading definition at the point where two innocent thighs become unmistakable territory for sin and degradation. 

The so-called "Robust Statue" may be art, or it may be base pornography. That all depends on your sensibilities and standing with the Good Lord. The undeniable truth, however, is that Nintendo is not hiding all the asses from us. Nintendo deserves better than to be viewed as some sort of anal Gargamel, kidnapping our rumps for selfish endeavors. 

Why did Kotaku hide this from you? Was it part of some anti-penis agenda? That's not for me to say. That is for you to say -- a lot. Like, all the time. Start saying it now.

The amount of people who still defend Atlus's terrible marketing for their "crossover game" is kind of disturbing...

Playing MGSV Ground Zeroes reminds me of when I was a younger child and I would play game demos over and over again, creating my own objectives and stories with my imagination. I love it!

SFV just revealed Laura's video. She doesn't look that combo-friendly tbh. That just might be the video though.

Apparently some people are upset at Hyrule Warriors Legends calling it "the most expensive DLC", to quote a well known former writer of the site "they're Nintendo fans, that's what they do" complain.

Pathologic Classic HD just got announced and holy crap am I excited. If you haven't played the game, keep your eyes on this one. It's the very definition of an underrated title. Though I'm not sure what'll happen to the remake that was being shown...

MGO is a blast and after playing for a few hours as each class, I'm glad I stuck with Infiltrator.

So assuming the terrible blog tools functions correctly, soon there may be a nefarious call to arms. So keep an eye out and hope there isn't a typo due to light-grey on white background text.

MGO's pretty fun! I suck at it though. I mostly hang back and just mark enemies and get the occasional sniper kill. It's pretty fun to be semi-useful with a very hands off role like that. Love my avatar character guy too.

Rock Band 4 is really fun...takes me back to my teenage days of high school. Also reminds me of all the hours I wasted on a plastic guitar instead of getting better on a real one xD

Team Fortress 2 just got a massive community-made Invasion update. SFM short, reskins, cosmetics, and 4 brand new maps?!?! God, I love this game and its wonderful community so, so much. [youtube][/youtube]
