@Quorthon oh, how I'd love to work in game translation :D my dream is still to work for Nintendo, but current obligations have me tied down to the Denver metro area where I currently work in a manufacturing company doing lots of things, including translating blueprints, machine drawings and industry-specific jargon. But I've worked in other translation prior to this for advertisements, commercials, etc

@aaronsullivan voice acting in every game? No, thank you, please. For many games, voice acting is unnecessary and can take away the fantastical atmosphere. Kirby doesn't need it, Mario doesn't need it, and Zelda especially doesn't need it- they're speaking Hylian, after all.
Games that are more realistic like Metroid? Yes.

Also, let's not forget Xenoblade is 2nd party.

@Quorthon totally agree with your post. I've worked as a Japanese to English translator, and this is one of my biggest pet peeves- you're not just translating words, you're translating social culture and the linguistic nuances, too.

Well, I guess I have to disagree about the part where you mentioned Hyrule Warriors. I never noticed it, but it could just be because I'm accustomed to those things you found annoying.
Either way, that is just a difference of taste :)

UGH I want them all. As someone who didn't game much last generation, I missed a ton of great games. Being able to download them for ten to twenty dollars is a miracle when some of them are going for well over $50 used. I like that my money is going toward the developers instead.

@Squid Thank you so much for that comment responding to @TobaisAmaranth. Articulated perfectly, and a lot more nicely put than I would've written back.

@TobaisAmaranth , don't invade people's personal boundaries, and if the people you've hung around are shxtty to you, then maybe find a different group of people that get you.
I have to be honest and say that every furry I've ever had the displeasure of meeting (I apologize, but it's so true for me) have been more or less socially retarded. That sounds like an epithet, but I mean that in the most honest way possible, not with vulgarity.
Read social cues, know that your niche group of furry stuff is not typical society; you can't apply your special rules to the whole world and then stomp your feet when reality isn't your fantasy.

And sorry to be blunt, but "touch-phobic" is the biggest nonsense ever. For all the reasons @Squid mentioned. Have you considered that your actions are also a part of the problem instead of it being the other person 100%?

Alright, @unrandomsam , I'll bite.
"Feminism isn't about equal rights not any more."
Except yes, it is. There is still inequality. And there always will be because it seems to be in our human nature, but as a thinking society, it is important that we try to eradicate it as much as possible. To keep this short, "don't let a few rotten apples spoil a bunch", feminism is still good.

"Feminism now is about special privileges for women."
Also wrong. See above.

"As a female going into a male dominated industry you get special privileges (Higher chance of interview and job) the same doesn't apply to a male going into a female dominated industry."
Would love to see some statistics/studies on that, because it sounds ludicrous. Also, you've cleverly ignored the high amounts of sexual harassment women endure in the workplace compared to men. And how women statistically hold weaker positions in business than men. And how women are discriminated against in being hired or promoted to higher positions, because of the possibility of maternity leave/quitting work altogether to focus on raising a family. And that women STILL make less than men for the same job. Still .78c to the dollar, iirc.

So, I'm not sure where you're going with all this.

DiscoGentleman commented on Former Nintendo Indie Champion Discusses the C...:

Man, oh, man. This is exactly as I've been saying- Japanese business ethics are harming Nintendo more than they're helping. Don't get me wrong, a lot of what they're doing is right, but they need to take more risks and have less cronies- Splatoon is a perfect example of Nintendo taking some (fairly safe) risks and going in an exciting, new direction. I credit much of that to the new wave of young guys creating that game.
I've worked for nothing but Japanese companies, and the pattern is all too familiar in the missteps.

Also, why are people clueless as to what "Feminism" is? It's just equal rights for women as they are for men. Some strawman feminists are actually just misandrists, which are men-haters. That's the word you're looking for: misandry.

Feminism is a good thing.

Wow, these comments are ridiculous. @AugustusOxy has to be the worst of it. This is probably the most awful comment thread I've read in recent memory here, and I just read that ninjapig one.

I love the absolute hypocrisy from @AugustusOxy about "LIBERTARIANISM! FREE SPEECH!" then damning Kay's free speech tweet. And then saying he won't comment back because he's much smarter than other people posting here. Have we not seen this kind of behavior before is sociopaths?

I agree on the "we weren't there, we shouldn't jump to conclusions" mindset, but then the people that are saying that, aren't really preaching it. They're preaching that the girls were in the wrong. That's misogyny. Get over yourselves.
If this Apex dude has been harassing people/women, then good that he stepped down. That is disgusting and awful for society. NOBODY should feel that their human rights are not valid.
And then passing blame onto the ladies who are trying to fight for their rights? That's the same argument as, "She was asking for it, dressed like that."

Nuke the planet. Salt the Earth. This world is ruined. We need a new one.

DiscoGentleman commented on Review: Lucadian Chronicles (Wii U eShop):

Really not into card games usually, but I easily for addicted to this. The fiancé, too. I also really appreciate the devs community-focused approach and constant balancing updates. It's easy to just drop a game on the eShop and forget about it- many have done so. However, this studio hasn't. Good on them!
