Oh my God, how long will this go on? I know that to you two inches is probably a lot but to everyone else it’s hardly anything.

Nah, fuck that. That’s just the excuse they like to fall back on any time they’re called out on their sloppy work. Whether they like to admit it or not, this is a news site - people come here primarily to find out what’s going on, and the opinion then comes as part of that package. When you can’t even be bothered to Read more

I don’t really think the Lego Mario thing is anywhere near as cynical as this Pokemon news. That’s just a bit of fun, and it’s promoting another product in the same line: anyone who encounters it has already bought into the Lego Mario idea. It’s no worse than Transformers cartoons.

They’re owned by the media company that owns IGN. It’s not like they were in danger of going bankrupt.

“Everyone piling on”? You haven’t even had 10 people replying to you. Seems a bit hyperbolic if you ask me ;)

Why? The Game Awards is an industry event that focus mainly on trailers (not awards) and relies on the support of publishers for its content, so Nintendo is within its rights to threaten to pull that support if the show is promoting unofficial games using its IP. Why the hell would it agree to be on the same show, Read more

It certainly does feel more like the Look How Many People Geoff Keighley Knows show. No other big industry awards show is hosted by the person who produces it.

One of those fan games, Pokemon Uranium, was downloaded 1.5 million times, which led to a shitload of Let’s Plays and the like online. That clearly could have had a potential impact on sales of legit Pokemon games. There’s no “guilty until proven innocent” there: when a ‘fan game’ becomes big enough that it builds its Read more

So this is basically exactly the same situation as Lights Out, which started as a short film (which is very similar, incidentally) and was then turned into a full-length movie

I implore you all not to ignore Genesis Noir. Played the demo in that summer games thing and it was amazing

To be fair, anyone with a keen eye would have already known there was going to be some sort of multiverse stuff going on in this one. In that ‘Same Day Premieres’ trailer shown in the article, you see something like 4 seconds of Space Jam 2 footage, but if you pause it you can see the likes of the Animaniacs tower, Read more

Hey, piss off. The article also said the Nintendo Direct was crap too. YOU’RE the fanboy here, jumping to Sony’s defence any time you see the slightest shred of criticism while ignoring the context around it. Calm down and sit down.

Some speculated the player behind SFVRyuPlayerLol had to be Wednesday Night Fights organizer Alex Valle. The fighting game veteran is a legendary Ryu player in his own right, after all, and he’s known to pick the same Street Fighter V outfit SFVRyuPlayerLol used throughout the night. Read more

It doesn't matter if the guy has it in assets or sitting in his bank account. If he turned around tomorrow and decided "I'm going to sell all my assets" he'd end up with $70 million. So he has access to that amount of money if he ever decides he needs it for whatever reason.
