Since articles are never deleted on Neechin, to prevent confusion, I recommend everyone look very closely at the date of this article.
Neechin.net is a translation project and game commentary/review site, but once in awhile, you just have to go break some news because the story found you.
A few weeks ago, a friend I talk games with complained to me that his copy of Narcissu Side 2nd that he bought off craigslist was weird and looked like a burned copy.
That’s strange, since my copy was clearly pressed, and they all should have been.
Well, after I clear that up with my friend, a few days later, he comes to me with a stack of photos. He wouldn’t say how he got them, other than he called in a few favors with some guys in chinatown. I look at the pictures what what do I see?
Looks like a home grown bootleg operation to me… what’s the world coming to. It’s a free game for cryin’ out loud! Are these things funding drugs? Or guns? Maybe prostitutes for our line of governors?
Worse, considering how you can get cheap movies for a few bucks on the street cops or no cops on the street, I doubt the letter I dropped off to the police will do much.
