Shworange commented on Video Game Voice Actors Contemplate Strike Act...:

I understand the complaints from many of you. "Those rich actors don't deserve more money!" I can honestly say that most voice actors are not "rich" by anyone's measure. I am a voice actor. I've been in the industry for almost five years. I've finally broken into the territory where I almost do not need a second job to support my family. When you read a part for an extended period of time, your vocal cords become raw. Especially when you're performing an unnatural dialect, or many of them. Our money is made by continually auditioning for new roles and obtaining them. I can't tell you how many auditions I've had to tell my agent to decline because my voice needed rest. Most roles pay what's called "scale". It's kind of like minimum wage for actors. In many cases you'll make around 100 bucks per gig. It depends on the legnth of job of course. The average full time, seasoned, in demand voice actor often earns around 45,000 dollars. Last time I checked, that is not remotely rich. I do mostly commercial and corporate work, but I do know guys who regularly perform in video games. The work is often demanding on vocal cords and reward you with scale, and not a higher wage. I've also heard reports of some companies trying to use an actor's voice for multiple projects, while only paying them once. That's really not cool. What I f you painted a picture for someone who paid you five bucks for it? What if that person turned around, copied it a thousand times and charged 20 bucks a piece for them. You'd probably think that was unfair.

One thing that Nintendo really needs is a global eye. Japan produces amazing games, but they need to realize that Nintendo means a lot to the world, not just their island. By tearing down the old world view and adapting, they will thrive in our global markets. Being overprotective leads to lack of use, leads to public forgetfulness. Give the world markets what they want and you win the day.



Shworange commented on Review: Pokémon Shuffle (3DS eShop):

I'm pretty solidly hooked on this game. It's a lot of fun and I've played daily since it was released. I'm still not buying hearts though. 5 play through at at time is more than enough for one sitting. Sparcing out the plays actually gives the game more longevity. I'm sure if they put this on iOS, they'd make millions. Just, don't though. Please don't.

The fact that you have to erase your Amiibo data is silly. Here's a free idea for you, Nintendo. Make an Amiibo app on the WiiU. Call it the "AmiiboCloud". The icon will be Lakitu on his cloud. You can save your Amiibo data to that cloud. You can tap your figure to the NFC spot. Then it will do a backup save. Also, you can swap out data here. A little animation of Lakitu fishing from his cloud is inserted here. This way smash data can be saved, and you can play this game without worry.



Shworange commented on Editorial: Nintendo's YouTube Creators Program...:

It really is a half measure. We all know half measures don't work. You have to go all in. Either fully support youtubers doing what they want, or put pressure on YouTube to take nintendo stuff down. These ways are the only ones that are viable. Considering the tarnished image that would result, I think leaving fans to create what they want, would be the best option.



Shworange commented on Nintendo Download: 29th January (North America):

Dang it. I've been putting it off for far too long, and now I need to buy a hard drive. I have less than a gigabyte left on my WiiU. I wonder if it will let me buy the game now and just not download it until I get a hard drive... Anyone know for sure?



Shworange commented on Review: Gunman Clive 2 (3DS eShop):

Great! The first was a remarkable little game. You can beat the first game in under an hour. I've found myself coming back to it frequently. The developer deserves our respect and support.

I really do love this game. I play almost every day. IF I don't have a ton of time, its nice to play one or two adventure mode rounds and get on with my day. Everyone who I introduce the game to has a great time with it. There's a lot of button mashing, but there's also quite a bit of strategy as well. With the season pass downloaded, there's an insane amount of content to enjoy.

As long as I am able to get a Majora's mask new 3dsxl, I'll be happy. For those upset by the news, you can always go to and buy a custom wrap for your system. I have one on my old 3ds. It looks really cool. Unfortunately, the system is just starting to wear out after 3 years of abuse.
