WaLzgi commented on Full Extent of Nintendo of Europe Job Cuts Bec...:

@joey302 Yeah, the 9 million forecast...that's a bit outdated. Step 1: What does Reggie have to do with this? This is Europe. Step 2: Nevermind, I misread the quote. From what I hear, restructuring always lay off people. What have they localized since Earthbound? Every game that came after since the 90s...
Step 3: Investors are mostly pleased with Iwata since he's still CEO.
Step 4: They are making games. Last I checked Hyrule Warriors and Smash are coming. And the 3DS is getting some games too. Oh wait, are they supposed to become big enough to make 1 big game a month? Can you name a single company that can do this? I can't think of any...
I can't say much about the Virtual Console since it doesn't have much. Though we don't exactly know how much money the VC makes and whether or not it would be enough to pay those employees.
You saw this coming? This layoff is actually pretty tame compared to what other companies do. Compare Nintendo to other companies and THEN tell me about how horrible Nintendo is. Localization? Last I checked the Treehouse has localized quite a few games since Earthbound. I am quite confused as to why you chose Earthbound in your argument, especially since Fantasy Life is about to be released in the States. You make that NES Remix statement like it's supposed to be bad. What else would you like them to do? Pump out a new retail game each month? Again, tell me how many companies actually do this...on TWO systems? Before you accuse me of talking out of my rear, you might want to reconsider your own argument.

@Ufaowl Nintendo of Europe had a contract with many different translators. This move seems to steer them towards more permanent (and fewer) translators. This should actually increase in efficiency, and I would think that some jobs would actually be gained in the process (more translators for Nintendo).

@ikki5: At the same time, I don't think those 190 were effectively "laid-off" unless they were fired by the agency. Nintendo just ended the contract with said agency. I think that this was a major mistranslation in the press.

@HyperSonicEXE I can say exactly the same for your baseless accusations. Nintendo put as much content as previous Mario Kart games, and now they are adding 16 tracks for $12! That's as many tracks as previous games which costed $30-$50. Explain your case to why this is bad.

WaLzgi commented on Mario Kart 8 DLC Coming In November, Features ...:

@IxC Your point is quite contradictory. Games now have so much more content than "complete" games back in the day. As the others have said, your argument is purely the fact that you don't like it and you don't exactly back it up very well aside from "I just don't like it". So with that said, I'm not ever going to see your point

@IxC Then don't buy it. Problem solved! And you're also saying that developers shouldn't continue working on the game after release?

Well this sure as heck came out of the blue. It's so much more exciting than that obviously bogus Smash leak ;)

WaLzgi commented on Talking Point: A History of the Sexualisation ...:

@allav866 I think it's also a case of why Nintendo would put their characters in such costumes. If Little Mac was shirtless, he could just be a boxer, for most boxers don't wear shirts during matches even in Punch Out. However, Samus is an outer space bounty hunter and has very little reason to be in shorts and a sports bra. It's a matter of perception really

WaLzgi commented on Masahiro Sakurai Outlines the Challenges of De...:

@DarkKirby I'm failing to understand your point. Are you saying it's a bad thing Nintendo does not continue on projects? I can rebut that with the fact that Nintendo is making new games and the teams move to different projects afterwards.

Or you are saying that they don't patch their games?

Also, the Miyamoto quote is "A delayed game is eventually good, but a bad game is bad forever"
