TheDavyStar commented on Donkey Kong Nearly Missed Out On Pixels Stardom:

The moment I saw the reveal trailer, I knew the movie would have a crap story, with terrible "humour" and skin-deep characters, where every plot point would be an excuse for video game references and nothing more. Though I'm sure I wasn't the only one.



TheDavyStar commented on Devil's Third is Being Published by Nintendo o...:

My God, Nintendo, can you not keep control of your exclusives? I will admit, the game looked more like a PC game trapped on Wii U. I realised this the moment Itagaki recommended a USB keyboard. It's like Nintendo execs had a wild night with Itagaki, then later woke up with a hangover, found out they had bought the rights to Devil's Third and thought "Aww crap what are we going to do?"



TheDavyStar commented on Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon is Adventuring ...:

I enjoyed the Rescue Team and Explorers games, but GTI dumbed down the gameplay and story too much - when nearly the entire pokedex was featured in the previous two iterations it was inexcusable that GTI only had 150 pokemon.

"There is a stigma attached to my name on the Wii U eShop that I only make cheap software. Hence resulting in lower sales."
I am willing to bet the majority of gamers won't boycott some indie dev as if tey were some multinational corporation.

@Jayvir If i were a major game developer, I might feel a bit like Sakurai. I have lots of ideas, but I want to make it exactly the way I see it, not have my ideas tainted by other people. No doubt a flawed way of thinking, but I can imaginr that is hiw Sakurai thinks

Allow me to clean up here (hopefully):

Perhaps this is potentially racist. It's a question of whether this particular depiction of a stereotypical African is derogatory compared to the other stereotypes In Qix. Ultimately if you're not a black African you shouldn't act the boss of whether or not this is racist. Let African people be the judge of that.

As somebody else said, this could just be racialism. Indeed, some African people hunt with spears and live in tribes in sone areas. And we should just accept that that happens. What I would be iffy about is making Mario black. There's no need for that. You don't go to Africa and just become black.

And yes, I do think NL is just using this for clickbait. It is a small part of a video. And I would not be offended at the Nintendo of today. This game is very old.

@Einherjar Where I'm from Germans are stereotyped as Nazis and people without a sense of humour or even an interpretation of what a joke is. Of course this is not realistic, but are you offended?
