@Morpheel He also made money from more than just the tickets. I'm sure he sold things to the people who came in for this event for which he sold tickets.

I'm of the thinking in these cases that if a big company laid down the hammer, there was a reason. We're primarily getting one side of the story. I'm sure he made more than $60.



Klimbatize commented on The Pokémon Company Sues Fan for Copyright In...:

The $4000 likely comes from the money he earned in ticket sales. He used an IP he didn't own to sell tickets.

The only part that seems harsh is giving a short period of time to pay it off. Fortunately for this guy there are suckers out there to pay the fine for him.



Klimbatize commented on Save Data Hackers Top Competition Leaderboards...:

@Morpheel Not that many are cheating. I was ranked 9th yesterday morning and now I'm 40th. A good portion of those who passed me are likely hacking the game. Still, those 25-30 cheaters will be the difference for some legit competitors getting a stone and/or mega speed up.

Like you said though, I'm sure Nintendo will remove them. I hope they are blocked from future uploads as well.

@FLUX_CAPACITOR Your last point can basically be summed up as, "If someone is bigger than you, don't point out when they do something wrong." That is pathetic. Just because someone is bigger than you doesn't mean you can't stand up to them when they are wrong.

That said, I don't think Disney has done anything wrong anyway. Suing is a dumb idea, but not because we all should cower in fear from the powerful, but because nothing illegal has happened here.

Wow, really? Nostradamus-level predictive powers implies almost nobody could see it coming. The majority of people could, based on those "expensive" materials he produced, among a host of other things, including the fabrications on his blog.

And yet you don't give so much credibility and space to these other bedroom programmers. Perhaps a lesson has been learned.

Peace and love.



Klimbatize commented on Rumour: XSEED Less Than Happy With Nintendo's ...:

@Damo The case of Mad Men Football was more than just a potential game that was never made. It was clear from the beginning it would never get made, yet this site dedicated four articles over several months to its prospects despite the fact it was clearly not a serious enterprise. The guy was a phony from the beginning, as evidenced by his website. No, not just the look of it, but the fact that he faked the comment sections on his site, etc. I have gone into details about this before on this site, so I won't go into anymore, but the guy was clearly pulling a gag (or was at least completely incompetent and nowhere near actually producing a game) and it was embarrassing that NL went along with it.

For the most part, you guys rock though. I was just explaining why Mad Men Football gets brought up as a punchline after stories like this appear on this site.



Klimbatize commented on Rumour: XSEED Less Than Happy With Nintendo's ...:

@Damo It's a humorous jab at this site and a comment on reporting on things based on little evidence, since it dedicated a few articles (and therefore lent credibility) to an obvious hoax of a game. A few minutes of digging showed Mad Men Football shouldn't be taken seriously.

It makes me smile to know there is still a page on this site dedicated to that fake game.



Klimbatize commented on Masahiro Sakurai Tackles Criticisms of Bonus F...:

Perhaps they should change the feature before it gets released to the West and offends so many anti-touching people. Make it a mode where you make the other person lunch or something. You just group different food choices together and hope they like it. If they do, affinity points!



Klimbatize commented on Video: Nintendo Challenge Gives You a Super Sm...:

I like Smash Run, and I play this a lot with local multiplayer, but really wish it would be updated. Rather than just a single final battle, I wish you could choose to do a variety of them, anywhere from 1 to all of them. Then, based on how you finish you get points and the most points at the end win. This way you would have to perform well over a variety of events, rather than it just being a foregone conclusion, for example, that the fastest player will win Run or Climb.

Difficulty level would be nice, too. It is way too easy in Single player.

And 100,000 is kind of easy for anyone with experience in this mode. :/



Klimbatize commented on Guide: Surviving the New Miiverse Update:

I agree with you, Giygas. I enjoy discussing in-depth strategies there, but apparently Nintendo wants to limit discussion to a minimum. 30 is enough for me, but now people who I used to communicate with aren't around as much because they burn through that 30 quickly, and have to check in maybe once a day in threads where we were legitimately discussing games.



Klimbatize commented on Guide: Surviving the New Miiverse Update:

@Giygas_95 "Why are we limited on how much we can comment on our own posts? If you get in a discussion with someone you're likely to burn through 30 posts in a hurry."

That's the point. Nintendo doesn't want extended discussions on MV anymore. They want it to be, "How do I get past this part?" Second guy says, "Do this, this and this." And then end of discussion. It's why you can't even make another post without locking your previous ones down.



Klimbatize commented on Guide: Surviving the New Miiverse Update:

It's not as bad as people made it out to be. Just restrictive, which really only affects the kids who use it as their primary social media.

Once we get used to the new layout it will be easy to navigate.

I was afraid it was going to make reporting and banning people much easier because it seemed like anything deemed not game-related could be reportable. So far though, I haven't see anything too bad. Too early to tell on that front though.



Klimbatize commented on Nintendo Gets Tough With Miiverse Bans, and So...:

I once had a post deleted for telling someone how to find a MV artist's NNID. It was dinged as "Personal Information". I was also banned for typing someone's NNID. Yes. Seriously. The entire post was nothing but an NNID because the person above me asked what someone's was so they could friend them. Dinged as "Personal information". Nowhere in the Code of Conduct does it say you can't share NNIDs. And why wouldn't we be able to? They are right there on the profile pages.

I bring this up for all the people who say it's hard to be banned. No it's not. If someone has an issue with you (or they're just bored) they can report bomb posts claiming they were offended, or that you're speaking in code, and admins would rather just delete than think. For example, I had a post deleted that discussed statistics on a game. It was deleted for sharing personal information. I called on that one, and they said the person reporting it said I was giving out my Friend code in code. I wasn't. It was a legit conversation about stats. I proceeded to tell them that my FC didn't remotely match the numbers in the post, and they said they would rather err on the side of caution. When I got off the phone I found my account was banned for the infraction. Despite the post being deleted several hours earlier, I was banned after making the call. I was not rude or inflammatory on the phone btw.

The Wii U thing doesn't affect me, but I do think if they are going to ban every ID on a device they need to moderate better. Profanity, bullying, dirty pictures, obvious bans. But discussing stats? Explaining how to look up the very public NNIDs? Nintendo has a search button for NNIDs! Going to be a lot of innocent people banned because some kid decides to report bomb others for fun.



Klimbatize commented on Lucas DLC Confirmed for 14th June Release on S...:

I'd rather some paid DLC that brings in different game modes. Like on 3DS, I like the concept of Smash Runs, especially when doing local play, but I'd like a version where after the 5 minute run you can choose more than just 1 final event. Adding the option to play from 1 to all of the final events with the stats you accumulated during that 5 minute run would be fun. Then award points based on standings after each event.

I don't know, just off the top of my head. I guess that's not really DLC, but just an update that would be appreciated to improve some of the modes already in play.

Though I would pay for a DLC stage creator for 3DS.

New characters at these costs aren't enticing to me.
