Commie commented on Review: Art Academy: Atelier (Wii U):

When exporting to jpg, is there an art academy logo in the corner like in the pokemon one (reason i didn't buy the game)? I'll buy this nonetheless, just curious.



Commie commented on Nintendo Download: 19th February (Europe):

Discounts? Jesus, these should be normal prices. You can get Batman for £5. You even get a nice box. Or buy it for PC... and it will actually play as it should; not like a bad port

@MasterBlaster well yeah, but the underlying ideology is even more concerning. It undermines any form of critical thinking. I'm not talking about, as my profile would suggest, a broad critique of capitalism (where one has to have a broader outlook on piracy), but merely a critique of Nintendo's business practices. Newell said that piracy is almost always a service problem and not a pricing problem (even thou, for Nintendo, eshop prices are an issue). What I mean to say, you aren't going to solve anything by building bigger walls.

One should really realize not everybody is living in the same conditions as he or she is. I mean being a gamer in Brazil is a bit different than being a gamer in Europe. It's not all about income either. This is way more complicated to dumb it down to legality or "morality".



Commie commented on Review: The Swapper (Wii U eShop):

Already have it on PC. For an older game that doesn't support pro controller, the price is to much. Don't know how they expect it to sell. Maybe in the long run.

Every time a piracy thing comes up, there is a stupidity outburst here. You people really need to read some books. Piracy (overall, not just download) is a far complexer problem, and not always necessarily bad. Dumbing it down to a moral debate (and a bad one) or some kind of hurting the developers/Nintendo argument is an insult to intelligence.

The approval rates of this article just show how good the propaganda is.
Gabe was (is) partly right when he says that it's a service problem (especially considering Nintendo's eShop). There is more to piracy than "it's stealing" and "some people don't have money".
How people don't find this disturbing is beyond me.
