So people thought this was a good idea…


So we’re really making a videogame set in 1930s Shanghai and calling it “Whore of the Orient"?!?!??

You don’t make period piece games about France called “Syphilis Depot of the West" or England, “Fecal Water Wellspring of Europe" so…

Seems atrocious.

Oh wait, because it is atrocious.

But it’s okay because that used to be it’s nickname and the game is merely reflecting the culture and the racism of the time…


So good to see that video games continues a trend that find it’s origins in the finest movies of Hollywood’s golden age.
