People are gonna buy this thinking this has something to do with Vin Diesel or The Rock.

Because clearly they're the only two muscular bald guys in existance.

No, but they're the most recognizable muscular bald faces nowadays...

Or do know about other muscular bald guys that are more famous than these two? Give me your list, then.

Not exactly, but "Muscular bald guy" is not a unique look. https://www.google.com/search?q=Muscular+bald+guy&biw=1366&bih=667&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0CAcQ_AUoAmoVChMI4v2NjLPcyAIVRDMmCh13nwQj#imgrc=_

It would be like saying every bald black guy looks like Samuel L. Jackson.

Still, nobody will think: "oh a game with a random bald guy from Google images".

They will think: "WTF? Is this a new video game with Vin Diesel in it?"

Hell, there's someone talking about Chronicles of Riddick.

Yeah, I love how Vin Diesel is in the box of the stuff I use to clean the kitchen with.

Will this get censored as well?

You know, it's pretty funny that they wouldn't give Fatal Frame a physical release since it "wouldn't sell well," but how well do they think this will do after all the relentlessly negative publicity?

Also, this cover sucks.

This is exactly what I came here to say. Almost to a level I want to copy/paste it anyway. =P

You. I like you. Goron brothers?

One is a more "niche" game than the other. If we want Nintendo to reconsider and give future games a chance, the real way is to vote with your wallet as they say.
People saying they're not getting the game because they don't get their precious boobs are not helping.

I would posit that Devil's Third will ultimately be more "niche." Fifth game in a famous horror series versus development hell abortion ripped to shreds in the press? Come on now.

At any rate, I'll do my part and buy it as soon as I get paid. Fatal Frame, that is. Devil's Third I don't know.

It's American, that's why. The game, themes and boxart scream "Stereotypical tough guy american game for hardcore gamers" and I imagine that's what NOA wants to push this game as despite them initially not wanting to not bring it over here for good reason...

Except Devil's Third was made by Tomonobu Itagaki, who's about as Japanese a developer as you can get. Plus, the game already flopped in Europe (which got a much more visually appealing/descriptive cover, incidentally), I can't imagine this will do any better here.

The Chronicles of Riddick game we been waiting for!

Who's responsible for these pictures? The colors are all wrong.

"Here's to the rest of your life. Both seconds of it."
"you're the disease, and I'm the cure."
"How Do You Like Your Ribs?"
"I'm going to take you to the bank Senator Trent. THE BLOOD BANK."
"At my signal, unleash hell."

The European cover is aeons better in every possible way.
