The Cutting Cafe'.....& a Giveaway!

I am so excited to share with you that I am now a part of the Cutting Cafe' team! What talent this DT has! I met Regina a few years ago and worked with her on the Bitten By the Bug team....and she has since opened up her own store called The Cutting Cafe'. She is amazingly talented and sweet too! This place is filled with amazing digi stamps and templates! I used the new Mother's Day stamps and adorable coffee cup template. I dressed up my coffee cup with Melissa Frances papers, a bit of airbrushing to the sentiment, Prima Flower, Maya Road stick pins.......and a scalloped die cut from Spellbinders.

A lil' close up......... : )

Regina is doing a generous give away! You have the opportunity to win the two sets I used to make this card! All you have to do is leave a comment by Tuesday night 12PM CST and I will randomly pick a winner. : )

Hey Everyone,

I have been looking to figure out a good place to start with the acai free trial & was wanting to know if anybody had some thoughts on whether or not the stuff works to lose weight? So far here is the 1 [url=http://acaiberries.zoomblog.com/]article[/url] I have been able to read online that seemed real for the goals I have. Thoughts?

Because of numerous reasons that are tied to a certain place, a video game which is considered completely acceptable in one place may be looked upon somewhere else. This is a good reason to thin that video game adaptation - unlike just straight translation - is extremely important for computer and consoles games.

However one seemingly simple yet relatively deep and complicated question has always bothered me: when does localization go so far that it becomes censorship? And to what degree should this sort of censorship be tolerated?

I will show you a simple example, Yakuza 3 on PS3 shows well how thin the frontier between censorship and localization can be. The game was heavily criticized by gamers who suspect the localizerd edited or removed significant game elements.

Now the question is: do all of these elements actually required to be changed? Isn't that just based on a stereotype that American gamers tend to be more religious and concerned about nudity and violence? It was certainly a disappointment for gamers who expected to have the same game as the Japanese one after reading reviews and news in video game magazines or forums.

Regardless as to what country this game is purchased in, by default (due to content) the player will generally be an adult - or at least old enough to understand that the game may contain some "naughty bits". Just look at the cover - this fact is not going to surprise anyone. So who are the publishers to decide even further who this game is for, and what parts they should be allowed to play?.

Game localization shall always be respectful of gamers.
