CM30 commented on New eBook Will Analyse Wario Land 4 In Nearly ...:

As someone who's both talked to the author of the book about game design and matters and does really like Wario Land 4, this book seems kind of interesting to me.

Although you may also want to check out the articles on his site beforehand, since they go into a bunch of stuff, including some more on the game.

Okay, this is the most stupid Nintendo has ever made. At least about the 3DS anyway.

It's not their job to police the internet and people's communications. And thanks to their stupid 'think of the children' crap, the tool is now completely useless for me and about 80% of 3DS owners outside Japan. Thanks Nintendo, just thanks...



CM30 commented on Talking Point: The Challenges When Writing Abo...:

Yes, there's definitely a worry of advertising dollars affecting review scores and what not, it was bad enough that I remember one writer getting fired from Gamespot due to giving a heavily advertised game a bad review.

But I don't think it's generally as much of a problem outside of the big gaming news sites and print magazines to be honest. I mean, I don't trust Gamespot, IGN and others like them at all, because they're fairly likely to be paid off in at least some way. But for a site like Nintendo Life, I doubt they're being told what to write or influenced too much by Nintendo's marketing team.

And hey, any bias a site like this has is normal, it's a fan site about Nintendo. Of course they're going to be all positive about Nintendo franchises, the writers likely grew up playing them up and are fans of the games.



CM30 commented on Counterfeit Nintendo Games Seller Faces Jail Term:

Anyone saying that lower prices would have fixed this, read the Croyden Post article that's linked. He was either selling multi game carts or flash cards, you can't legitly sell games for less than that (and no, Nintendo can't sell games for less than a dollar/pound each). He's just a thief trying to profit off Nintendo's hard work, and deserves all he gets.
