Nice job Nintendo, throwing away free marketing. They can do what they want, but I'm not a blind Nintendo fanboy, I'll say it like it is: they're shooting themselves in the foot. There's no other way to say it without running away from the truth. The YouTubers (whether you like them or not is a whole nother matter) supply the videos, commentary, and gameplay, the game developers make the game. The former get the revenue, the latter gets the advertising. A win-win situation. Why you would discourage such is mind-blowingly stupid. Say what you will about whether you think they're entertaining enough to merit their wages, all parties win from them. Nintendo is in the right legal grounds to do this of course, it's just not a bright idea. I love Nintendo, but not unconditionally. Blindly cheering them on no matter what they do like a Vita fanboy is stupid.

@Chrizzel28 Some feminists make me wonder, but I don't think this is one of those cases. The people refuting this are either really freaking cynical, in denial, or both. Generally I'd refrain from such titles, and have thus far, but in my mind I'm pretty sure that the commenter in question (AugustusOxy) may very well be sexist, or at least one hell of a hypocrite.

@HappyMaskedGuy Yeah. Social darwinism will do its duty. That guy should promote that perv in question in front of his family, around his friends, and inside his church if he has one. It doesn't take a second to know what people would think of him. Trash standards. No wonder he has to give this crap on the internet, I wouldn't be surprised if he started some too with the guy who was stalking him. Who knows? Hard to take anything he says seriously. For all we know, his definition of wronged could be being upheld to basic standards.

@Ryu_Niiyama My group of friends has both males and females, and we're the video game / anime clique at my school. I don't feel misrepresented, cause idiocy isn't that dominant. They're just a small bunch of losers upset that they couldn't get a date, and want to feel strong, and in the majority. In reality, they're few of the average population, and dwindling. Rightfully so. They throw their tantrums, make their scenes, they just look stupid doing so. Stuff like this makes them come out of the woodwork, they pretentiously perceive it as them being wronged. Pitiful beings.

@BlatantlyHeroic Can't blame you. Feminism, human decency, family values, I don't care what you call it. These guys are getting butthurt over our objection to a guy hitting on a girl half his age who's too pretentious to stop it. Cause that's "just flirting." Yeah, they can keep telling themselves that. Good thing they're on the losing side of history. Maybe they'll try to start a controversy again, but nothing can help them look any less stupid, and classless for that matter.

@PhotonStorm Kudos to you for being professional. I don't know much about your games, what platforms they're on, or what they're like, but I'm already a thousand times more likely to buy yours than Ninja Pig's. It's pretty funny how he's acting all nice on here but is the exact opposite on Twitter. Clearly it's just for show. We can't have enough people like you in this world.

Vincent294 commented on Satoru Iwata Highlights Frustration at Missed ...:

Well this is confirmation, they aren't building hype for nothing, are they trying to get back in the game if you know what I mean? The N64 was unique yet a bigger player, it sounds as though they want to achieve that level of success. I hope they do as well, cause if I get a Wii U it'll be later after I upgrade my PC and get a One. If their next console had a decent level of 3rd party support and Nintendo's 1st party IPs, that would be a must have. I shouldn't get my hopes up though. Good luck Iwata san, as well as the rest of the team.

Here's hoping they can let you link your NNID to your friend code soon. They add themes but still haven't gotten the basic friend & messaging capabilities to host a round of online multiplayer without other means of communication. Still, I love that new UI. Looks far more contemporary.

The internet...while I'm still a bit skeptical of the radiation levels in Fukushima (Time had an article about the power plant and the stigma and fear about the area that remains), the backlash he received for innocently trying to help people make a living there is pathetic.

Vincent294 commented on Resident Evil Revelations 2 Assets Spotted:

I would love for this to be on the 3DS. Skipping the Wii U is understandable, despite its ideal controller the sales would make it financially unviable. Regardless, give me some actual horror, I've been waiting for a good RE on my Xbox besides what I have on my 3DS.

Vincent294 commented on Nintendo Open To Minecraft on Wii U and 3DS, a...:

@Kifa Exactly, though Wii U actually has 4 times the RAM of the Xbox 360 for games. 3DS has a bit less than half the RAM of the PS3 available to games, so I could imagine it running with 256 X 256 worlds. It also supposedly has a co-processor as well as the dual core CPU, not that that counts for much. No matter what though, one thing is certain and that's that only high-end tablets & the Vita can power a fully-fledged Minecraft experience on the go. I have hopes that a port can be done, and if it was decent and cheap I'd buy it.

Vincent294 commented on Philips Secures Wii Patent Victory Over Ninten...:

@Yorumi So much intelligence in that statement. I bet Philips is on its last legs and willing to do anything to survive at this point.
EDIT: So they are doing okay. Well, still doesn't change the fact that their patents came second and the tech is notably different. I find it ironic how big patent trolling has become. Suing for something vaguely similar for a quick buck and attempt at a monopoly. Pathetic.

Vincent294 commented on Activision Enlists Kevin Spacey To Sell Call O...:

@Caryslan I know. CoD is overrated, but it's so annoying when you're hated just for not hating it. I guess there's always hipsters who deviate from the mainstream just to be counter-culture as opposed to having a reason. There's not liking CoD, which is perfectly fine, and then there's hating those that don't hate it. It's the latter that annoys me.

They could skip PS3 and rely on Playstation Now, but I assume at this point they've already crafted the engine for the game. Believe me, if it was just episode 1 & they asked for less on the Kickstarter goal I would've donated. Here's hoping it's resurrected as episode 1. Then I'd donate.

Vincent294 commented on North American Wii U Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Set B...:

While tempting, you have to go at least $100 below PS4. At least considering that they don't even have universal accounts set up yet. Nintendo is really losing touch with gamers. At least MK8, X, and a few other games are good. Miiverse is also cool, but the fact they can't nail the basics is just sad. Nice that you get 2 games and an old Wii remote if you lacked it already though.

Vincent294 commented on GameStop Plans to Close Around 120 Stores in t...:

@fortius54 Yup. I had a bad experience a long time ago, but they're a lot better now in my area at least. For those unfamiliar, not everyone of them is run by a manager that bends over to corporate greed. There's a couple small game stores by me that specialize in used games, but if I'm going for a big new game, then I'll get it at GameStop. I hate cynics that clamor for extreme abrupt actions, like closing down all GameStop stores. Do you put much thought into it from all sides, like what of the employees or if all locations are evil? Heck, even Zynga closing would be bad, with all the inevitable job losses in this day and age of execs laying off their workforce for a cash bonus.
