Kimimi commented on Matters of Import: Shining a Light on PS Vita'...:

Thank you Sammy! It's so nearly a good game, but the control issues and the relentless difficulty are just too much to ignore. I'll always want to champion new and interesting ideas (especially in this day and age), but a flawed game is a flawed game :/

Kimimi commented on Soapbox: How a Niche PS Vita Exclusive Made Me...:

Well, it's lovely to wake up to comments like these! I was expecting the usual backlash that occurs whenever someone mentions women and games (in any context), so Push Square readers should all give yourselves a pat on the back for:
a) Actually reading the article and,
b) Responding in a thoughtful and reasonable way

Thumbs up from me!

Now to respond to a few things that have caught my eye in the comments -

@Bliquid - That's an excellent example, and (in a way) I'm glad you got to experience that sort of automatic exclusion because that is indeed what the vast majority of games (and their advertising) are like to women. If I notice it then I really can't imagine what it's like for a curious new gamer trying to get into the hobby :/

@Gemuarto - The game is not "furry themed". When the princes are in animal form it's played one of two ways - comedic or cute. There's no romance or sexual insinuations there: and while I'm on the subject, there's not actually any sexual content at all.

@Faustek - I'm more into Japanese Saturn games and old imported computer games than cakes and dresses, but I appreciate the thought all the same ;)

@AceSpadeS - Proof that my knowledge of films is inversely proportional to my knowledge of games ;)
