I'm a huge Nintendo fan, future dev

Male, 21, United States

I love video games, be it on Sony or old Sega systems, but my preferred system every time is Nintendo. I create videos on an account called BasementofNerds. I am planning on making games in the future and plan to get them on a Nintendo system someday.

@Bushido_Fai Well I never once insulted EU, I thought that it was just a comparison that was easy to make since they are both very apparent on this site. Also I really don't care where you hail from that doesn't give you the right to use generalization about a place just because, "Well I see it this way so it must be so."

I said it once and I'll say it again, I do hate the complaining but I think it can be important to an extent and I don't generalize it to a certain group which is why I said BOTH complain. And the fact is that PEOPLE complain, US, UK or wherever CND is. Unless you mean CDN which is Canada, who I know people who complain about stuff all the time, I call them VGA.

EDIT: Turns out it can be either way, weird.

@aaronsullivan The whining doesn't bother me, it was more of the fact that it made it sound like people US only complain and complain all the time. I know very well how complaints can be used in negative and positive fashion. I don't bat an eye when people say 'This group is this way', aka I hate generalizations people make and I will call people out on it if they make them.

@Bushido_Fai You weren't just saying, you were definitely complaining about complaining, don't brush this off like nothing happened. No absolutely not, I see you guys complain all the time, in fact when I was on the IGN forums you would not believe how many EU people complained that we got SSB4 Wii U first...I mean really? We definitely SHOULD of complained about Xenoblades, that's why we got a petition started and got the game on the Wii in the first place. Also you are once again generalizing, I never once complained about the New 3DS because I was going for the Majora's Mask New 3DS XL and got it. You can not tell me if the tables were turned people in EU wouldn't have been complaining, that's just absurd.

@Bushido_Fai Alright you obviously don't get it no matter how obvious I make it so I'm just going to be blunt. First off no I hate it even more than you, every time I go into "New Games for US this Week" Or "New Games for EU this Week" I get angry because everyone is like "oooh bad week this week" even when there are good things. I'M MAD because you think US does it only and EU doesn't do it at all like you're above the rest of us here even when you moan just as bad. Seriously stop being a close-minded, cocky SOB. Complaining in general from everyone is annoying I agree, but you keep segregating it to the US. And no, we're not worse than you guys, our complaining and your complaining is equally terrible.

Edit: You are still very much complaining, heck the fact that you put this in a video where the US got something good means something.

@Bushido_Fai I doubt that since your moaning right now. You really are generalizing a whole lot of people with just your personal experiences and I assume only on this site, but it comes off as extremely ignorant on your part. People complaining is just human nature there is nothing you can do about it no matter where they hail from, I mean like I said earlier your doing it right now you aren't above anyone here in the comment sections regardless of country.

@TrueWiiMaster

....Technically the exact same thing happens, an angel comes down to stop Abraham and tells him that he has shown how strong his face in. The game has the exact same thing with the book representing the angel. The story really isn't that 'Twisted' of a retelling as some of you guys are making it out to be.

The game is gross, there is no getting around that. If you don't like all the gross art in it I can understand, but I just can't see this game as all that offensive.

@Barbiegurl777 Uh....I think you might be confused on what the definition of shovel ware is.

The 12 Days of Christmas on the Wii...that's shovelware, Binding of Isaac is definitely not shovelware. Its okay to not like the game, but the game is getting super high reviews, you can't say it is of poor quality.

64supermario commented on It's Not An April Fool, The Binding Of Issac: ...:

@TrueWiiMaster

See the religious part bothered me the least, its actually based on a story from the bible which is the story of Abraham. Which the game just kind of tells a modernized comical version of it. I'm Catholic, but it honestly didn't bother me at all, I didn't think it was making fun of me until other people started bringing it up and even then I still think its an over-exaggeration. Its also based on feelings the creator himself felt from growing up with a very religious family.

Correct me if I'm wrong, that's just what I've gathered.

In honesty, I want it because I played it with my friends and loved the difficulty. Poop being on the ground took some time for me to get over haha.

64supermario commented on Head Teachers in the UK Issue Warning to Paren...:

@BulbasaurusRex You are using extreme examples in that scenario and it would be rational to do so, but you know that this is not even remotely on that level. I have a cousin, who is younger than me by about 5 years who grew up with horror movies (Rated R/PG-13 of course) throughout his entire life. He loved them when he was around 7 and now wants to make his own. He never became a felon of any sort or was traumatized by it. I don't think this applies with every kid obviously, but kids process different things at different ages as others and don't always see it as the black and white that older people do. And before we go off on this tangent, no I don't think there is much difference on the impact of kids from movies to games, interaction or not. Unless a WELL-TRUSTED study comes out proving me wrong (with years of study) I'm sticking to that gun.

I know I'm from the US and its not my place to judge....but doesn't this seem a little much. I think most people don't give enough kids credit, they are very good at processing things that are inappropriate (and I don't mean cussing, kids just find that hilarious I know I did) but they aren't going to start murdering people because they did it in GTA. I wouldn't want this kind of policing on movies, so why put it on games, seems like a restriction that will do less good than bad.

See the one of the main problems I see with this is, if the person is a fan of the character that they bought the Amiibo for wouldn't it be more than likely that they own or have played the NES or SNES game? I know that is not always the case when it comes to the younger generation, but I don't know. Also take the limits off the demo, I thought we were over these shenanigans.

I would LOVE to see this happen. I know people would be like "uh why would you watch someone play a video game" but honestly its the same to me as someone watching a sports. I'd rather play a video game than watch sure, but I'd also rather play a sport than watch.

If anything we should make an eSports Olympics, just depends on how we should go about it. We could also hold them in between the regular Olympics or better yet yearly.

Even if they give you the option to buy Gold and Silver Mario if your a certain status on Club Nintendo I'd be satisfied, I want both damn it. Kind of glad I held off getting a Mario Amiibo if this is true.

I think the better idea is to start covering the Mario Amiibo plastic with some sort of foil and those few lucky people that find a gold Mario inside of it get to take a trip to the Amiibo factory and meet Willy Moto.

@SCAR392 I most certainly can because they didn't think of copyright laws of YouTube and Let's Plays that is the very definition of being outdated. And with how popular this is getting its even more needed for an update than ever before.

You of all people should know you will never get the full Nintendo experience from watching, you get it from playing. I was watching APEX 2015 yesterday, did I get the same experience from watching as I would playing? If anything watching it made me want to plug in my controller and get the real thrill of playing for myself.

And your right it is questionable because the LAW IS OUTDATED and we don't really know how to handle this issue because there are elements of copyright ID infringement and fair use in play that is why we are very split on this issue to begin with.

As for the results of these videos, @Vanya picked up a very interesting article you should give it a read. (I know you weren't debating this, but its a good read nonetheless):

@Snugglebutt wow way to be super respectful /sarcasm. Do you even follow the Bayo 2 sales? I have no stats to back up the advertisement and neither do you so let's just stay away from that point, but the only reason I got into the Phoenix Wright series was LPs so I know it can and does work. The person who needs to SHADDAP is you, who the heck do you think you are judging how people make a living and you are greatly confused on how much those people make, except PDP who is rolling in doe. There's a reason Nintendo videos are never done by PDP, because Nintendo's content IDing has lasted way before he was famous.

One thing you and everyone needs to stop freaking doing is using PDP or Angry Joe as the VOICE of the YouTubers. There are plenty of reasonable YouTubers that were interested in this program, but stayed away from it because of the other things listed in the legal documents and not just because they are getting a cut of the revenue. Fraser from VideoGamesAwesome (the community you scoffed at me for being in) goes over the Nintendo Creator's Program in a respectful manner and puts his own thoughts on it.

Also please, as soon as you put down your first comment you became involved in it, don't act like you are not. Don't be the guy who's like "lol I'm above this, I'm just here to laugh" that's what trolls do.

@Snugglebutt because as we all know Nintendo has done a great job at marketing looks at the Wii U If you don't care why even get involved? As a hardcore Nintendo fan and part as LP community I feel a need to be apart of this issue and get to a resolution that makes both sides happy. Here's the thing Nintendo games like Smash and Zelda are always going to sell plain and simple, but then you get things like Bayonetta 2, Wonderful 101 or Baten Kaitos. Not going to say that LPs would have increased it whole heartedly, but it shows that Nintendo didn't market it to the correct audience or well. Why not allow YouTubers to make videos and talk about it?

The thing is you can call them entitled, greedy or whatever, they are just telling Nintendo why they aren't going to do their videos and not saying their games suck or the company sucks just that this in particular is not a good business route for them when everyone else is allowing them full access. This is a livlihood for people and if Nintendo games are going to pay rent then it makes sense that they won't do it. Not everyone is Chuggaconroy.

....no @SCAR392 I meant that I would love this to go to the supreme court(I just didn't want to name it because I thought people would freak out on me for saying it), not because I think Nintendo is dumb and not because I don't think company's should be entitled to their works. I want to know what their ruling is on LPs and to see if they would actually be considered fair use. We haven't had an issue like this and the laws made were made way before this was even considered an idea which is why I call them outdated. If the ruling goes is against it so be it I'll step aside, but if it was for it I expect the other side to do the same.

The only thing I think Nintendo is dumb in thinking is that popular YouTubers or most YouTubers would go for this, its just a bad deal for them in general. I think there is a great idea in here, but it wasn't established well and it really shows that this was made from only a Nintendo perspective of how YouTube works not how content creators perspective.

@PaperMario64 ....Yes I've heard that quote, I think it can apply to you as well in this situation. You keep grouping LPers into this group of screaming neanderthals, how have you not picked up that that is what I'm agitated that you keep doing. They have careers because they are consistently doing what they are doing as well. Game companies HAVE gone and paid for these kind of guys to play their games. I only have a job because of my company, and most people only have jobs because of their respective company. Just because you don't like what LPers do doesn't mean they can't do it.

If I'm missing your point what is it, because all you keep saying is that LPers are greedy screaming babies, that is all I've got out of you, that has been your last 3 comments. Stop beating around the bush if you have a point, because all you keep doing is complaining about LPers without any point except thinking that they are all greedy and loud, (And don't even say you didn't, you've said it in multiple comments).

64supermario commented on YouTube Stars Aren't Happy With Nintendo's Rev...:

@PaperMario64 you don't get to choose what a career can be. Ever heard the phrase, "do what you love and the money will come"? Will they do what they love and to keep adapting and getting better and having time to focus on improving it they get paid to do so, so that they can focus on it. Should comedians not get paid because telling jokes is just a hobby?

@Discostew I didn't tackle this right away because you said a lot and I can't tackle it all at once (especially in my current state) but I didn't mean Nintendo is the bad guy, but they aren't the good guy for sure. When other developers don't even bat an eye at this and Nintendo offers this program which takes part of the profit away (which they have every right to, not what I'm debating) why in the world would anybody praise them or see them as a white knight of the youtubers? One thing I hated reading through the legal document was them pretty much saying it was YouTube's fault for this happening...if all the other companies are anything to go by I highly doubt it was YouTube that was getting in the way.

@PaperMario64 Please you were the one calling out everyone as if they were on equal to PDP and were calling them all greedy. Those people have made this there career if they can't make money to pay rent from Nintendo they will go somewhere else its as simple as that. Its a missed opportunity to get those that don't usually look at Nintendo games into Nintendo games and build interest. I don't know why everyone assumes these people are rolling in cash, because most of them really aren't....except most likely PDP.

64supermario commented on YouTube Stars Aren't Happy With Nintendo's Rev...:

@PaperMario64 its not surprising to see someone like you think that all LPers are like that. You really need to broaden your view of LPers if you think that is all there is to LPers. Like it or not LPs are huge. And how dare you, the fact that you said that last comment shows how ignorant you truly are you have no idea how long it takes to edit videos and what needs to go into a stream. Video Games Awesome doesn't just push a button and the video is made, you need to step outside of the box you live in and see that there are people that put a ton of care and effort into what they do and that is incredibly ignorant of you to say something like that. Stop equating every LPer to PDP or Markiplier.

Stop defending Nintendo on this, nobody else does this to the same extent. I love Nintendo, but they are not the good guys they are making them out to be on the issue. I love Nintendo, but when they do something I disagree with I call them out on it.

@PaperMario64 .....I think you missed the point of all my comments. The points I keep bringing up have never been about the money Nintendo has been making on YouTube videos, in fact its probably nothing compared to that game. So that begs the questions, why is it a big deal to Nintendo. I've said multiple times Nintendo has the right to do it, but its a waste of potential. Assuming I watch loud LPers like PDP and calling me stupid, way to stay classy in an actual argument,

@Discostew honestly don't watch PDP myself I'm more of a GG and VGA guy. But I have seen A LOT of people complain about this issue be it on videos, twitter or forums like this. One thing you should note about GG is that they are pretty good at not trying to alienate people (except Sonic fans) also in there recent Smash Bros Arin even says that he doesn't want to stay on the music too long for fear of a copyright strike. I also don't know what you mean by fear-mongering, but I'm simply just stating flaws with the system and think they should be improved upon. I just hate that people were treating Nintendo like heroes for putting this in when nobody else really even does it. Its a great concept executed horribly.

500th comment!

One more thing I wanted to add real quick to those who dislike that people make money on Let's Plays....who in the world are you to say how people make their living? I don't know if you've ever tried, but putting together streaming equipment and editing takes a long time and is no means a simple task especially if you want quality results.

64supermario

64supermario commented on YouTube Stars Aren't Happy With Nintendo's Rev...:

@Discostew it also might be easier because those smaller games are on PC and are easily downloadable and readily available...however. Why on Earth would you not take advantage of this, there are big developers that ACTUALLY go out and pay youtubers to play their game. You mention Microsoft but they have loosened their grip on LPs recently and have been much more embracing. Having someone play their a game doesn't hurt a brand, its the content itself that will break and make the situation. I really don't know why you are denying that its advertising, I'm an example of the fact of LPs working. The reason I got into Phoenix Wright was watching an LPer play it...and that is a game that is all story based.

@reasonnotwhine Oh trust me, I'm going to. I've honestly been debating how I'm going to go about doing it. I legit considered writing a letter and mailing it there and trying to be more reasonable with it and being polite while constructive with this program. But once again I'm one person and I don't know what the best solution would be. Heck in this age we might as well get a massive Tweet storm telling them we have a problem with this haha.

@PlywoodStick if that's the case I wonder why it seems only Nintendo is having this problem and no other company has.

@Discostew That's a little unfair, its more of both where people enjoy the channel will see them play a Nintendo game and want the game which is good advertsing for Nintendo and Nintendo fans will look for videos of that game and might become fans of their channel. Those commercials working out for Nintendo recently? Look I get what your saying, but how do you think Minecraft got so popular.

@reasonnotwhine You confuse me, the whole EVO thing did cause an uproar, but are you saying we shouldn't cause an uproar now?

@reasonnotwhine But WE HAVE TO VOICE OUR CRITICISM we shouldn't just stand back and stay everything will work out dandy, Nintendo needs to know that people have problems with this and what those problems are. If we don't they might just think they are doing fine and release the beta as is in a worst case sense scenario. Tell Nintendo there's problem, so they can fix it because as it is now...its awful.

64supermario commented on YouTube Stars Aren't Happy With Nintendo's Rev...:

@reasonnotwhine I hope they don't. The fact is they don't as of right now and that is at its core a better policy that Nintendo has in place. I'm going to copy and paste my rant from another forum that I already did:

No other company is as aggressive in marking content, Nintendo has marked reviews and parodies on older videos, Nintendo will not allow you to use videos if you use OBJECTIONABLE behavior (super abstract), it takes 2 -3 DAYS to get your video approved by Nintendo when others will just do a work around and get up videos of new games on the day of its release if they work hard enough, their list is laughable, and their take on it makes it sound like you can only post positive Nintendo things which just seems down right horrible.

Nintendo is not a white knight on this issue, they are farthest from being a hero of any sort. Do not be an apologist on this issue, call them out on their BS so that they can improve the system and you don't just live in lala land where everything is okay. Nintendo has the right to own all their content, sure. But I'm not throwing them a freaking parade because they put this up when everyone else provides something much better by comparison...approval. Nintendo had some good ideas in here and I wish that it had been something better but as it stands it fall 100 miles short and needs to be reworked in its beta stages. Call them out on it, don't just sit there and pretend its okay and if you don't really understand how YouTube works than stay out of the issue, its the equivalent of when the government started to get involved in the internet while sticking to their unknowledgeable ways of how its works and the people on it work. It frustrates me to no end, I want more LPers, parody makers, reviewers to do stuff with Nintendo but they keep screwing it up and when they finally get close to doing something right with it they screw it up again.

Some of you guys really don't freaking get it.

NINTENDO is one of the only company that is as hard hitting on this issue, most companies and independents allow gamers to have all the revenue, do you really think people on the more famous spectrum are going to be rushing to this.

Also I love to Nintendo to death and always will, but they are not errorless. All the other companies allow LPers to go on or pretend it doesn't exist, Nintendo is not a hero on this issue and aren't even the good guys. They brought some interesting to the table on this, but they misfired in several directions.
