As I´ve written quite a few articles about Capcom, censorship and “Street Fighter V” in the past (such as my “A response to the “do not censor Street Fighter V petition” for Rainbow Mika’s butt-slap” and “Capcom makes it harder for PC modders to mod Street Fighter V?” article). I just couldn´t help to feel like justice has been somewhat served now (what goes around comes around, karma baby!). Long story short, when “Street Fighter V” got released on Steam yesterday. It didn´t take many hours before the PC moders started to add the content which Capcom had removed from SFV previously. Yes, you guessed it. R-Mika´s butt-slap is back in business again (you can download CENAWINSLOL´s “Street Fighter V R.Mika Buttslap Fix Mod” today!). And that´s just the start. As it´s also rumored that the very same modder group will fix Cammy’s intro next.
And all of this became publicly known after a tweet by Jodie Mae (she´s a Gamer and a SF fan) earlier today:

And not only that, it also became clear that the fans and the SFV modders took a swing at both Neogaf (no wonder why Neogaf is salty at the moment) and Capcom as well (mainly Neogaf, since they like and welcome censorship):
I should also point out that the SFV Steam user reviews has been really mixed so far:
“I feel ripped off.
Nevermind the lack of input configuration or game modes like Arcade or Story, Capcom had one job, get online Multiplayer right, and rather than rant on about how absolutely awful the online experience is, here is my full review of Street Fighter V through images. At least I was able to play about 15 seconds of an online match, so there’s that.
DO NOT BUY THIS GAME IN IT’S CURRENT STATE, BUGGY, LAGGY, UNPOLISHED TRASH!
Will Update Review once the dust has settled, but by the time everything is fixed Street Fighter V: Game Of The Year Edition will be out for $20 less.” – Nightwing
“It’s 2016 Capcom. Only having Xinput support on release when several large vendors of controllers/fight sticks/fight pads use Dinput is completely unacceptable. I will update this when it’s fixed, but my god I shouldn’t need to use some random 3rd party programs to get basic controller schemes to work.” – Jean Valjean
“Street Fighter V – Early Access
✔ Not finished
✔ Extremely low content
✔ Broken launch
✔ Error 2100d
✔ Ugly graphics and pictures
✔ Sadly optimized
✔ Only 16 characters on start
RISE UP !” – Handsome Mike
In other words. Not only did the SF fans and the PC modders put Capcom to shame when it comes to censorship and releasing half-broken games on release, but the Gaming community also showed Neogaf that they won´t accept censorship. And like I´ve said in my previous articles, the PC mod community won´t stop for anything, because once they´re up for a challenge. They just don’t stop before it´s done and made. So, Gamers Vs Capcom 2-0!
