    After the bug of the couples, these scores do not surprise me, and graphics of this game are terrible, I thought it looked better. Well, I will refresh the view with this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nTYM2I6Ut2g

    I dont know what to do with this game, first is a very hard topic to just holding and support just one position, i understand nintendo position, and dont know how they could had handle it better, due their main targets and sticking to those while basing their decision. And I understand the homosexual people, comunity, for being hurt by this issue and nintendo approach, i think i will not buy this game, i cannot have a good time playing it, while other people feel hurt by it. Yep i will skip it in support to the affected people, and Hoping the next game can have the option, but like i said it will be veru difficult taking in consideration nintendo main targets.

    @ManuOtaku So your not going to buy a game based on others “reaction”(over reaction if you ask me) and not because you personally feel it’s something you’d like or want to try? Good job on not letting Nintendo dictate your enjoyment but to let a community do so.

    @lexph3re I think Nintendo should have been much more specific about what the bug was and how it was game breaking. Because everyone just assumes it was Nintendo being homophobic. It was the bug team’s job to fix this bug, not discriminate between social issues and broken code.

    Not a big fan of Animal Crossing. Not a big fan of fetch quests, feeding miis, getting jobs done for them :D
    I think the concept here is great. I love the humour and the cheesyness that can be found in here…but i don´t think that it will be something that i want to play for more than an hour or two.

    @ManuOtaku games are not meant to appeal to all people.let’s say black people are hurt because games mostly have white protagonists,while I’m sure they don’t give a shit(not 100% accurate, but still it isn’t less than 70-80%).so do what you will,but with you not purchasing this game doesn’t benefit the homosexuals nor yourself. Also,companies are free to do whatever they want with their games.it’s their property and hard work after all and people don’t have the right to accuse them for not putting something that most gamers don’t give two shit about in their game.#dealwithit

    And people should learn that this game was made with Japanese and Asian people in mind.Homosexuality is nearly non existent in Asia and is completely disagreed with in Middle East,which is also a part of Asia.and FYI yaoi,while is a gay genre,has mostly female readers.and Yuri has mostly men male readers(I used to once: )

    @Game Hunter rather than “non existent” you surely mean “not allowed” / “Taboo”? I dread to imagine how many poor souls are in closets over there.

    @silkvg247 note I said nearly,not completely non existent. They are some,but they’re not more than 1-2% of the total population. Still,it doesn’t change a thing.Asian games are made with the world’s majority in mind,not minority, aka homosexuals.

    @Game Hunter
    Wow. Your comment couldn’t sound more insulting or ignorant even if it tried. You know about “Middle East” where homosexuality is “disagreed with”? NO. YOU OBVIOUSLY DON’T.

    There are a lot of homosexual and bisexual people living in Middle Eastern countries who HIDE their sexuality and CAN’T express it. Why? Not because of general bigotry or social taboos. No, they CAN’T be themselves (At least publicly / on most media) because if they show even a slight sign of homosexuality, they are FUCKING KILLED. Either murdered by religious mobs or PUBLICLY executed by the government (Absolutely legally because fucking religion allows them to).

    Also, “Homosexuality is nearly non existent” in Asia? I’m not as familiar with that region as I am with other parts of Asia but I’ve seen my fair share of Asian gay couples (Korean, Japanese, Not many Chinese ones though).

    Guys like i said is a very difficult issue to just take one stance or position, at least it is for me, i understand that some heterosexual parents will not like the idea of their kids playing a nintendo game with an homosexual relationship option, they buy nintendo consoles to their kids to avoid this issues that are present and very well openly handled in the other consoles.

    Nintendo knows this, because they are part of their main targets, very conservative people, therefore i understand their posture regardind this, although they could handle it better.

    Also I understand the reasons why homosexual people feel hurt by the nintendo stance on the issue. Thats why, personally is a very tough topic, i do understand and agree with both stances.

    Nintendo did release a game in the way they want it, and in a way i should enjoy, iam heterosexual, And i do like nintendo games, etc. But i really cannot enjoy a product that brings so much hurt to a an specific population, especially considering the stigma society place upon this people and keeps treating so differently than anyone else, iam a person that does not do to others what i do not like for me, iam a firm believer of empathy because of this.

    Therefore For me, is a stance i choose to take, supporting homosexual people here by not buying the game,, even knowing that i can enjoy the game, but i do also know that i can pick other titles as well, i can live without playing this game in Particular.

    Sorry for starting unneccesary discusion on an already discussed issue on other threads, knowing stances are really very opposite and distanced.

    @The_Red I live in Middle East,soooo…SHUT THE FUCK UP!I know what Muslim people think about homosexuals and even non Muslims disagree with gay people.my comment was based on myself hearing and seeing them.people love to accuse others on speaking without proof.I’ve grown up in a Middle Eastern country and only a Middle Eastern knows what their people believe.think before you act,dumbass.

    @ManuOtaku no problem man.but know this:your support will be only noticed here and won’t benefit anyone.true about what you said,but still these relations are hardly noticed in games because they’re optional.like in Sims 3,according to what I read,all townspeople are heterosexual and you need to convert them in order for the city to become gay friendly. Not a problem I guess.

    I think the people making the most fuss about the gay marriage thing are actually the straight.

    Every article I have read so far about the issue has an abundance of people saying “deal with it, stop making a big deal, gay agenda, every one is so sensitive…” and all sorts of things, what I really haven’t seem is people saying “I’m gay and I’m boycotting this, I hate nintendo, if you can’t have gay marriage there shouldn’t be marriages at all” or anything like that.

    So to me, it’s not the gay community that sounds like the cry babies.

    Why are people “offended” cause other people were “offended”. If it’s ok to you, buy the game and be happy, if it’s not, what’s wrong with making yourself heard? It’s the only way for developers to know there are people craving for something more.

    @Rafa_L hmmm true,haven’t seen any gay people come to websites and argue about it.I even remember a gay member came to an article about GLAAD and commented against them.yeah,straight supporters are much more offended than the people they are supporting.maybe they’re gays in straight clothing :D?!

    @kisame I don’t get what your first 3 sentences mean.can you explain?

    @Game Hunter I think you misunderstood me, it’s not the straight people that sympathize with gays that I consider cry babies, it’s you. The people who thinks there’s nothing wrong with the the game and are looking for reasons to complain, asking for complacency only because you are satisfied.

    I think the GLAAD fight for tolerance or PETA’s fight for animal treatment, and many other of the likes, are needed to be fought, but as they are human, there can be bad persons in the mix, exaggerating or making mistakes, it doesn’t change the fact that there are reasons for those movements behind some misguided people.
