This. As long as you're having fun, who cares. Enjoy!

Also, moved it to General Discussion. Please, we have separate sections of the forums for a reason.

If that's the purpose of this thread now, for you to heckle and personally encourage others to also heckle people who bought this game, I'm going to ask for an end to that, please. It may be your opinion, but there's no need for that sort of rudeness. :/

Spending money to be a troll is maybe even sadder than the existence of this game.

You're putting words into his mouth. Knowing bezerker99 and his taste in games, I'm fairly sure he figured he'd have fun playing it on a Nintendo system, so that's why he shelled out. Any inconvenience to yourself was purely coincidental.

I think everyone gets it. You want devs to put more effort into their games than this, and the dev showed up to put his foot squarely into his mouth, so congratulations — you've made your point and with the help of Tom's article, the gaming world has been made more aware of the dev's statement, for good or ill. You can't force people to only purchase and play games you think are worthwhile, though. There's enough room out there for laziness and ingenuity to coexist, and we as gamers are given the opportunity to pick and choose what we want, no more, no less. if I want to purchase and play a lazy game, I'm going to do so. If you or anyone else doesn't like it, that's too damn bad.

Sorry.

This isn't a flashcart, an emulator, nor is it homebrew — it's one of those 'gray area' things, and since piracy is neither the subject nor the goal (just a method of recording gameplay from a legit device using a legit cartridge), we're going to go ahead and let this go for now. If the discussion starts to go south down other tangents, though, we'll be more than happy to shut it down. Thanks for looking out for us! :3

Hey guys, since this has turned into another code-sharing thread, we already have a thread stickied in the 3DS eShop section of the forums for code sharing. Let's move it over there so that we can get the sharers and those still looking for a code all in one place together and everyone can be happy. Enjoy! :3

Pretty much this. I've let this topic go for a few days to see if any good came from it, but it seems to all be a bunch of he-said-she-said gossipy bologna. The forums aren't a tabloid, guys. Find something else to discuss, please.

Yes, but they renamed it after a game they play. Truly the innocence has been lost.

so instead of pretending to kill actual people, they're now pretending to kill made-up people in a video-game setting. seems like a step up to me, if only a marginal one :3

that said, kids are the only ones with enough time on their hands to play crazy amounts of video games. that would bey guess as to why. :3

Exactly! How are we supposed to know if the rule isn't listed anywhere. ;)

I'm not sure if you're joking around or not due to the use of winky-smiley-face, so I'm going to take this comment at face value and answer accordingly:

Sometimes there are issues not quite pressing enough to warrant full-on Rule changes; some things only happen occasionally, and the Directors hand down a decision and expect the moderation team to follow it regardless whether it's an official Rule or not. It's like the unwritten rule regarding advertisement on the forums — as long as we're consistent, and as fair as we possibly can be to all involved, people understand, and when someone crosses a line on accident, we remind them of our stance and take action (e.g. thread redirection and/or locking) as necessary.

With regard to 'unwritten' rules , though we may have posted in the 'Announcements' area, we do not go in expecting users to already know these things, so we do our best to educate and then get everyone moving toward an acceptable topic. This is what happened to you, @Neko_Rukiafan. At no time were you in danger of a ban, it would have taken much more than one review topic and we would have had to interact with you over it multiple times — and even so any ban would have been temporary pending your acknowledgement of our request and willingness to cooperate. We also always have the Contact Form available if there are any questions, comments, or concerns regarding acts of moderation here at NL, at no time were you denied access to me if you had concerns. If you just want a scapegoat for your potentially leaving NL, that's one thing, but I do not see how I have personally gone out of my way to persecute you in any way, shape, or form and I do not find it fair to be accused of such.

@Klimbatize: Thank you.

Also, on a more general note, @Jazzer94 is absolutely correct, there has been arguing and infighting since the beginning. The only real difference between then and now is that we had maybe a fifth of our current userbase back in those days, lol.

Actually, under normal circumstances this would be deemed unconstructive and against the spirit of our Rules (as it is not only an image macro, it's one encouraging piracy), so it would be edited or deleted entirely at the discretion of the moderator dealing with it. as an example of what we don't want to see happening, though, i'm letting it stand :3

@Maelstrom: Not sure what you're asking, but if it's a fan-game of some sort, it should be okay to discuss and/or link to (provided the site you're linking doesn't also provide downloads of original ROM versions of copyrighted games). Does this answer the question?

He's asking about fan remakes (Sonic 2 HD and Project AM2R, for example), which I believe have been discussed in articles on this site before.

I think these are things we'd just keep an eye on — it's one thing if users are discussing playing these games but a whole 'nother kettle of fish if the devs behind them were coming here, offering up files for download and asking our users for input on some sort of special beta version, for example. It would depend on how the topic plays out, i suppose. :3

@Neko_Rukiafan: I didn't delete your thread, it was archived with an explanation: http://www.nintendolife.com/forums/wii/fishing_resort_review#...

the bottom line is that I had to step in with another user who had also posted a full review to our forums this very morning, and it would not be fair for me to allow your thread to continue to slide under the radar with an available recent duplicate (i hadn't seen it before for whatever reason, that's why I hadn't locked/redirected it sooner). Artwark's thread had no available recent duplicate, so theirs was allowed to stay open, but yours had a duplicate available to redirect towards — one you had created, no less.

If you want proof of the reason behind reader reviews being disallowed on the forums, it is here. This rule has always been there. If you have seen it go unenforced for whatever reason, it's merely because we cannot be everywhere at once and if something doesn't get reported, we may miss it. Artwark's thread earlier had been reported and was handled, and then I found your thread while looking for something else earlier. Call it the [un]luck of the draw.

If you'd like to continue being dramatic, that's on you, but the least you could've done was just ask if you had a question regarding an act of moderation here. :(
