Here’s an interesting bit out of Japan, proving that Western gamers are just looking for reasons to be angry. Thanks to misunderstanding an ad, gamers thought the next Super Smash Brothers for 3DS was going to feature playable versions of a Japanese pop band, AKB48 (a group who from what I can tell has more members now than Menudo did ever)…who were only demonstrating that you could use your own Miis to fight in the game. It would have been a stupid reason to boycott the game anyway. Don’t like them? DON’T USE THEM! And you thought stupidity was limited to Western gamers?
looking for something specific?
