I have a pretty thick skin – I’m not easily offended and I’m pretty tolerant of the objectification of  digital women in videogames. Honestly, it generally doesn’t bother me. But woah – those crazy Japanese have a game that makes me worried.

Allow me to show you a new JRPG, Criminal Girls INVITATION, that’s coming to PS Vita. It will only hit the Japanese market, which is probably for the best. The game allows for punishment of these criminal girls, but they they won’t be breaking boulders or doing laundry. No, this is some strange BDSM-themed game, without the consent

According to Dualshockers, it’s possible to use a whip to slap the girls with the touch screen, and that part will become red. Additionally, the girls will react accordingly. But wait, there’s more! A slippery liquid can also be used for punishment purposes. As you progress through levels of punishment, the outfits the girls wear become more revealing. Plus, you can change costumes to make punishments more effective:

Certain costumes are more compatible with specific methods of punishment. For instance swimsuits are very compatible with the slimy liquid mentioned above, while stockings are perfect to be used with the feather duster.

Finally, there are various voice samples featuring moaning and groaning – headphones are recommended. Really, you can’t make this stuff up! I know, this is acceptable in Japan because it’s actually such a prudish culture – this is their outlet for such desires and thoughts. However, this is really rather disturbing. As always with anime, the girls look just a little too young for my comfort levels, and I don’t like the lack of consent. Feel free to make a BDSM-themed porno game, but at least let the characters be consenting adults – at this point, it’s a game that promotes sexual assault.

Check out the gallery – what do you think? Disturbing or just what you expect from Japan?

      Indeed, prudes will nay-say this “game”, but in the end, people will buy it cause they are, in fact, people.

      Just like LG felt the need to post the article with pictures (and many others in the same vein) and the readers dutifully went through each of the pictures in turn, each be-crying shock and horror and then click the next picture, rinse and repeat.

      Personally, this stuff doesn’t work my wheels, but I’m not naive enough to “believe” only depraved Japanese are titillated by this.

        Also, I didn’t click any of the pictures, because really whats the point? It is sick, but I’ve no inclination to inspect it.

        Generalising and assuming are 2 bad traits to possess. Some readers would have clicked every picture, but some won’t. People are people and we’re all different. Please, don’t generalise.

          • ToshZA

            October 17, 2013 at 13:27

            No assumptions necessary, nor am I ignoring anything. Taking your comment as it stands, and in context, you’ve generalised on the entire reader base here (which includes yourself, by the way), as well as assuming theirs and LG’s intentions for reading/posting on this particular article. You’ve also assumed that people in general believe that “only depraved Japanese are titillated by this” – or at least that they expect you to believe as such.

            Read your comment again. Slowly. Take it all in. Be more specific, target your comments. Again, some people certainly fall under this category, but not all as you’ve implied. And nobody expects you to believe that only Japanese are turned on by it.

            Well, clearly you analysed my comment with more vigor than I had in writing it. (I didn’t realize there would be a test later).

            My point was, (i.e. what I was trying to say) people are generally depraved (except you), we generally censor our responses in line with the societal norms, this is expected and often hypocritical. I see this in the comments section for this article and others.

            I’m sorry you misunderstood my comment or that I didn’t write it in a way that gets my point across properly.

            I totally get your need to patronize me, it’s ok, I can take it.

            Lol. This is the most polite handbag duel ever. Upvotes for both of you.

            Honestly though, if we went around telling people not to generalise, no one would get anything done. And it’s very postmodern to reveal unto the world that context matters.

            I got what both of you were trying to say. And there was no reason to attack the first post to prove that there were a few writing/structural errors (agreement – this wasn’t a submitted thesis – calm down).

            Anyway. I rate hentai has always been on the boundary (just as some porn and/or actual human behaviour notoriously has been/is). But boundaries are fluid – according to societal, individual, transnational, and historic expectations. And people are.. well. unique.. in their tastes. I invite you to consider the first Cro-Magnon that fell in love with Homo neanderthalensis. Not my cup of tea – but someone went for it. 😉

          But I was trying (badly) to say we are all “expected” to be shocked and dismayed, the tone of the article highlights this “Disturbing or just what you expect from Japan?”, but I really personally believe we are often just hypocritical in this regard.

          I guess I feel that the Japanese are just being honest about what they want / prefer. Our society looks down on that hence we label they as “Crazy Japanese”.

            Eish, which game was that?

            I guess it’s a morality issue, I know different people have different moral boundaries, I’d hope incest is a common red-line.

            Sometimes I think we are forced to equate Virtual or artificial experiences with actual experiences. i.e. playing a game that shows incest then equates to you condoning incest.

            I don’t buy that.

          • SaintsRowNigri

            October 17, 2013 at 14:18

            No, no game like that, Not a AAA one, to be sure. I’m just of the belief we will never see something like that, because of society not being ready for a story like that.
            Whilst I do not condone incest, I did have an interesting conversation with a erotica author a while back. She’s heavy into gaming as well, and she wrote a Skyrim article I read a while back.
            When I quizzed her about her preference for taboo erotica. Incest and the like, she simply answered: It’s entertainment. It has a entertaining value for certain people (her readers) who are honest enough with themselves to admit stuff like that turns them on)
            I know it is extreme, and I may get a lot of WTF dude comments, but it just drives home what you are saying. We are not always what we consume.
