We’ve got a bone to pick with the PlayStation 4 version of Dream Daddy: where’s the exclusive Kratos add-on pack? Game Grumps, the creators of last year’s PC-based dating sensation, could have at least given us Joel from The Last of Us – heck, we’d have settled for Days Gone’s Deacon St John, but with a name like that only if we were really desperate.
Alas, the Dadrector’s Cut – there’s an “uncut” pun in here which is too lewd for even us – will add new side-quests and minigames. And for those of you who have somehow never heard of it, this is a dating game where you, y’know, try to bag a big beefcake Dad. Because who doesn’t want a bear in the bedroom? No, we don’t mean a real one, we mean…
The game's due out on 30th October.
Hatoful Boyfriend gone wrong in all possible ways...
Hahahaha. Oh, God. This is perfect. If there is a platinum for it, I absolutely need it in my life. Myself and 5 other persons at most.
The song in the trailer is perfect.
@Jaz007 You mean all the RIGHT ways.
@get2sammyb 🎶 Dree-ee-ee-eeam, Dream Daddy 🎶 🤣🤣
@get2sammyb The music is great, but the gameplay is a pain in the ass.
@Wesker I see what you did there, but....maybe you’re playing the game wrong?🤭
Game of the year.
@Wesker Oooh matron! 🤣
Jokes aside this really isn't worth any amount of money
My dream daddy is one that's actually there for me.
Canceled my Red Dead preorder...this game is all I need!
Playstation: Hey! You can't play senran kagura whitout censorship.
Also PlayStation: Let's play a date sim!
It's not an extremely niche Japanese fan service game aimed at men so it's ok.
It would be if the men looked like little kids, still can't understand how people can defend paedophile but that aside this looks like something that's a free mobile game or a couple of quid at most
Not defending pedophilia but I'm against censorship 100%. Starts with one game and then many more to follow. No doubt games from Sega's Yakuza franchise are in the line of fire next because the clowns that gather in twitter, resetera, polygon and kotaku echo chambers hate what that franchise offers and those people (who are a minority) are clearly the crowd Sony is trying to score point with now. Not going to stand by and watch my favorite franchises get effected by this too. It's funny to me. People lose their minds and scream anybody who likes SK (or in my case stands against censorship of it) is a disgusting pedophile, but fawning over the physics of horse balls in RDR 2 like several Western journalists were doing is perfectly normal.
Please tell me this is a joke and you do understand the massive difference between the two.
Sadly they don't . Just seems typical social justice warriors, most of the time I'm against censorship but there are times when it's needed. People who can't see that are fooling themselves and can be dangerous . Also I can see people who defend that other game are doing it to try to justify the urges etc that they have so they say it's only a game , they aren't children etc, before anyone gets to upset I'm not saying anyone on here but there will be those elsewhere
I can tell the difference but again, I'm not for censorship. You disagree with me, that's fine. But don't insult my intelligence, I haven't gone around insulting anybody else here.
@Gamer83 I asked a question. Why you decided to be offended by it, is beyond me.
Defending all censorship no matter what it is is absolutely ridiculous. Would you be ok if a 2 year old was depicted having graphic sex with an 80 year old? For one thing, such a game wouldn't even be allowed to be released.
At any rate. The comparison between this game and senran kagura makes zero sense.
As you were.
Piers Morgan saw the thumbnail and cancelled his pre-order.
When that game gets made, you'll see me change my stance, until then I stand by what I've been saying. Intimacy mode is weird and unnecessary, like the SK games in general, but if it was really that big a deal, this mode should've been censored out of the games years ago. I believe the decision was made to appease a certain group of people who hate any kind of sexual content and now they smell blood in the water and games that don't deserve to be targeted absolutely will be.
@PaperyWhiteBoy I nearly wrote something like that in the article lol.
I've seen so many using Senran Kagura in reference to this game across internet forums.
People expecting this this to be treated the same, when it features (as far as i know via 30 secs on google) only minor references to kissing or sexual activity in the conversations between characters, as opposed to the obvious groping mode in SK,
Just sounds like some people cant handle a game about homosexual males and using SK's censorship as a convenient cover.
As for the game, cant say i'm interested, dating games are a niche that i just dont get, but whoever plays it, enjoy!
Find it disturbing these people have problems with homosexuality and defend paedophile, talk about having you're prioritys out of place but then these people only care about attention and don't care about the issues they say they are defending its all about there own ego
@suikoden - Yeah it is quite the paradox unfortunately.
When ya read comments referencing gay men and hetero men as separate entities, not just... ya know... men... it makes me realise at 43, that gaming is as toxic as it's ever been and i despise it..
Well, I can't speak for others but I don't give a sh*t if somebody wants to play a game for gay people, women or whatever. That argument is all crappy because the industry is big enough to appease people of all genders and all sexual orientations. I'm just opposed to censorship and in this case I don't even know what Sony's end game is. Yes, the mode has groping, it's also never been an issue before. If the game was pedophilia material it never should've been allowed, period, end of discussion so people are going a bit overboard on that issue. There's also the fact that the base game, which boils down to nothing more than titillation for the sake of it, has the girls beating eachother and their clothes flying off all over the place. If Sony is so concerned about the content then get the game off the market. That's what leads me to believe this is more just about scoring a few pr points with crowds at places like Resetera and that's where it becomes a slippery slope because these people will start demanding censorship where it has no place being. I'd just like Sony itself to come out and clarify (which I realize they can't, no smart business discusses company policy in public unless it has to) so I know where to buy games like Yakuza, Devil May Cry, Street Fighter and Tekken in the future.
@Gamer83 - I'm happy you dont't give a s*** about someone's sexuality, but ultimately there is no other reason for people to weaponise the SK situation against this specific game, which IS whats happening, regardless of your personal viewpoint on the matter, one which i'm aware of, having read your posts. You are simply talking about censorship and about content that is removed, not about this "dating" game and its contents
My point was that those arguing over the censorship of SK, are asking why DreamDaddy isnt being considered for censorship and it makes no sense in the current climate. Like i said this does not have sexualised content, so other than the homosexual angle, which even in this day and age IS an issue for some people, why are people questioning this in the first place? Because the underlying issue is what you actually referenced previously, that "slippery slope", where groups complain and pressure companies into regressing games and other media to basic levels for fear of upsetting someone. A cake and eat it mentality will only kill off media.
I dont particularly want that, but there seems to be an idealogy around that these ideas of what is right and wrong dont change. I dont neccesairly like how many things have indeed changed to mollycoddle the masses, but sometimes it is the right choice at that time.
SK and GTA V are the modern equivalent of Custers Revenge, I wont insult your intelligence by explaining that game, but ultimately back then, the furore was tangible and headline worthy, not just because of its content, but due to the more closeted sexual climate of the time. I look at that game and just laugh at how rediculous and quite pathetic it is in modern aspects but this was hardcore and pornographic to quite a large section of people back then, whereas modern commentators look at the fact that it looks like the rape of a native american woman tied to a stake. So as much as we can go forward and advance ourselves into the acceptance of once taboo subjects or indeed be able to discuss certain subject matter, we also have to be able to re-evaluate.
In SK's case, thats whats happened, yes it's a dangerous step in broad censorship terms, we can go on to ask why was the hostess mode in Yakuza allowed, which is glorified prostitution as well, then GTA and so on... I understand that worry, but even if something hasnt been noticed for several incarnations, it still has to answer to the current climate of the time, regardless of whether you or I agree or not, i just dont want those who have other motives using these sort of stories to further their Sh**ty agendas and muddying the waters even more.
@dellyrascal "My point was that those arguing over the censorship of SK, are asking why DreamDaddy isnt being considered for censorship and it makes no sense in the current climate. Like i said this does not have sexualised content, so other than the homosexual angle"
It's a DATE SIMULATOR, the ultimate goal is to have sex...Even if the game don't directly show sex scenes, you're playing a game in which the goal is to have sex, it's a game made for the player to seek sex with the characters.
Senran Kagura is a fighting game with fanservice, it's very different.
If someone don't wanna play something they can just not play. Censorship is terrible and hurt the industry, but if you'll start to censor, being selective and having double standards is even worse.
A dating game that intimates the idea, that two people will get together and thus COULD potentially have consensual sex should be treated the same as a fighting game, that has a comepletely irrelevant "intimacy mode" that allows users to pull breasts, grope characters and illicit negative responses from those characters when touched..
I dont agree, but i respect your opinion and this is why censorship is such a hot topic to discuss.
i do agree that it is terrible in the majority of cases and it could hurt the industry in the long term, but without a better idea than "let everything be allowed", someone has to make decision and it wont always be a popular one.
