Andrew EisenI like the movie No Escape where they just round up everyone who can't play nice and dump 'em all on an island where they can be as nasty to each other as they want.02/18/2015 - 9:53pm

WonderkarpI wish Sega would relaunch all the Saturn games with bundles like they keep doing with genesis classics. so many saturn games I want to play and not break the bank on.02/18/2015 - 8:08pm
PHX CorpI just want nintendo to Suceed With all the help they can get from youtube to twitch to even hitbox02/18/2015 - 7:27pm
PHX Corp@Monte I was under alot of stress over the past few weeks due to people complaining about Nintendo's Youtube policy(which contributed to my Negative nelly type overreaction to said policy)02/18/2015 - 6:51pm
MonteIf nintnedo wanted somekind of revenue sharing program, it would be better if it was optional, and provided benefits to users; such as helping to increase views to make up for nintendo's 30% cut. Make youtubers WANT to use the program instead of forcing02/18/2015 - 6:39pm
MontePHX, i think you overestimate youtube. While crippling let's plays and reviews might have some impact on nintendo, it will probably be relatively minor. They make great games, have tons of fans and can survive without free advertising from youtube02/18/2015 - 6:37pm
PHX CorpI'm sorry for being a negative nelly on nintendo's policy, but it could happen if this contiunes down the road, that's why I oppose the current policy regarding Nintendo and youtube02/18/2015 - 6:36pm
PHX CorpIf nintendo's youtube policy contiunes, it'll be a bleak future for the company that will lead to a potential sale of their ip's and Studios to either a Company outside Video Games(Comcast or disney) or a tech company(microsoft or google).02/18/2015 - 6:25pm
Andrew EisenNintendo should just start its own MCN with Nintendo-specific perks but leave it at that. I think it would be really popular and make it a bit of money in a way that wouldn't piss everyone off.02/18/2015 - 6:25pm
prh99@PHX Corp I think that would be best. The people who have the viewership to make their program worth while almost certainly have promotional value and people do reviews are going to tell them to pound sand.02/18/2015 - 6:24pm
PHX Corp@prh99 I hope nintendo drops it's current Youtube policy and take a hands off approach in general so the chilling effect on thier IP and Screwing over it's fanbase ends for good02/18/2015 - 6:19pm
prh99It's also an adminstrative hassle, Nintendo can't exercise nearly the level of control they'd like in a reasonable amount time. They have to pay people to watch video and send relavent tax info. At the end of the day they are screwing over their own fans.02/18/2015 - 6:13pm
E. Zachary KnightI found a fatal flaw in the design of Skylanders, money cannot be shared between characters. Kind of annoying, but probably designed that way to force you to play with more characters.02/18/2015 - 6:08pm
E. Zachary Knightprh99, It might leave a bad taste in the mouths of YouTubers and gamers, but for the game company, not so much. They would love the idea of being able to filter out any negative videos of their games.02/18/2015 - 6:02pm
prh99As for the YouTube program, thankfully it continues to be mired in backlogs that will hopefully leave a bad tasty in case anyone wants to try.02/18/2015 - 5:56pm

E. Zachary KnightNot me. I would love it if they bought Capcom.02/18/2015 - 3:30pm

ZippyDSMleeBTW guys ever thought about using FB's plugin? https://developers.facebook.com/docs/javascript/quickstart/v2.2#plugins02/18/2015 - 3:00pm
ZippyDSMleeThey think they can pull the wool over people’s eyes by attempting to bully critics and reviewers, you’d think they would have learned by now that you get more with honey not piss.02/18/2015 - 2:59pm
ZippyDSMleeMost big IP congloms are clueless and use underhanded tactics to futher thier profits only when there is a big fuss do they have to pull back. Currently Fair use gives most the ability to review and critique.02/18/2015 - 2:58pm
MontePapa, I have (though not customer service), but regardless, the point is that EA does plenty of things that might hurt their own sales while trying to increase their profits. Hence why EA is likely keeping a close eye on Nintendo's youtube practises.02/18/2015 - 1:46pm
ZippyDSMleeBoth have a horrible offline mode, Origin is trying a bit harder with customer service(and can't EA when selling via steam just use steams DRM do you really need both frakkin services for 3 or 4 games?). Lets face it Uplay is the real threat :P02/18/2015 - 1:36pm
Papa MidnightMonte: Have you actually used Origin? It's really NOT that bad, and their customer service FAR exceeds that of Steam's (i.e.: actually responding).02/18/2015 - 1:22pm
MonteEA's game sales would be better if they kept their games on steam, but they limit their games to origin so they can push it on their customers. Like i said, EA is willing to do idiotic things for the sake of profit. Youtube would be no different02/18/2015 - 12:16pm
Matthew Wilson@ezk if EA did it, they would lose almost all youtube presence, and yes nintendo being as anti youtube as they are has hurt them.02/18/2015 - 12:04pm
E. Zachary KnightMatthew, creating a Nintendo like YouTube licensing scheme does not preclude them selling their games. I doubt that Nintendo's actions will severely impact the sales of their games.02/18/2015 - 11:53am
MonteNo, EA wants to make tons of money and has shown time and again that they will do idiotic and evil things to increase their profits. Dungeon Keeper, Origin, Simcity, Online Passes, DRM. You can bet if nintnedo succeeds, EA will be quick to follow02/18/2015 - 11:36am
Matthew Wilson@EZK EA wants their games to sell though. if they follow the nintendo route they are dooming themselves.02/18/2015 - 11:03am
ZippyDSMleeNin should start relaseing thier games on other hardware after 6 months or so even a year means I won't have to put up with nin's hardware.....02/18/2015 - 9:43am
E. Zachary KnightIvresse, If you think that EA isn't watching Nintendo's YouTube experiment closely in the hopes that they could mimic it themselves, I have a bridge to sell you.02/18/2015 - 8:33am
ConsterNintendo: I prefer BS over evil.02/18/2015 - 7:11am
MonteRather deal with Nintendo's youtube BS and eshop, than EA's monitization practises and origin02/18/2015 - 4:32am
MonteEA would probably utterly ruin those franchises... er, relative to how ruined some of them may already be. Nintendo would probably handle the franchises themselves better than EA ever would02/18/2015 - 4:28am
Ivresse@Andrew Eisen: EA, because then a) Capcom and Sega games would appear on PC, b) People can youtube/twitch this stuff without fear of EA demanding 30% of proceeds post youtube cut.02/18/2015 - 4:21am
ZippyDSMleeI'd say both, sell off everything but the IPs then 6 months later sell stuff to mobiles and PC!!!02/18/2015 - 3:20am
prh99If they are going to pull content (and I believe Nintendo would), yes. I wasn't fond of Bethesda pulling old Fallout from GoG in favor of Steam only. 02/18/2015 - 1:01am
Matthew Wilson@ezk there online is about on par with battle.net when it first launched in 1997. @AE sega becouse of their ips. ?I would love for atlas to make a new skies of arcadia/ vc game. yes I know they didnt make the ealer ones, but still I think they can do it.02/18/2015 - 12:38am
Andrew EisenOkay, here's a fun question: Who would you rather acquire Capcom/Sega - Nintendo or EA?02/18/2015 - 12:26am
Andrew Eisenprh99 - So, I take it you're against any platform owner acquiring third-party developers.02/18/2015 - 12:22am
E. Zachary KnightMatthew, They aren't trapped in 1998. Maybe 2008 but certainly not 1998.02/17/2015 - 10:31pm
prh99Nintendo is laser focused on only releasing for their hardware and it's concerning if they start acquiring.02/17/2015 - 10:22pm
prh99If they bought them and let them go about their business then I don't care either way, but if pull content or prevent stuff like the recent HD remaster resident evil coming on anything Nintendo hardware I think that would be a shame.02/17/2015 - 10:16pm
Matthew WilsonI think they would, becouse we are talking about a company that is trapped in 1998, and cant seem to leave it.02/17/2015 - 9:44pm
Andrew EisenIf Nintendo bought either, would it pull those games from digital distribution services like Steam? Good question! I think EZK and I will have to bat that one back and forth on the podcast.02/17/2015 - 8:50pm
Papa MidnightAt $2.49 (+ Applicable Taxes) for a bundle of PC ports of games that are old enough to consume alcohol in all 50 states of the USA, I highly doubt this is even remotely considerable as a "Fire Sale".02/17/2015 - 8:39pm
prh99They strike me as company that would by them out in order to leverage their IP to sell hardware, and making things exclusive seems like a popular option.02/17/2015 - 8:36pm
prh99AE: fair enough. As for pulling content, I could see them pulling Sega MegaDrive games off of Steam. Or prevent Street Fighter games coming to the PC.02/17/2015 - 8:30pm
Matthew WilsonI get your pov, but it seems odly timed given their financials recently02/17/2015 - 7:30pm
E. Zachary KnightMatthew? Selling old games at a steep sale is now a "firesale"? I don't see it. If so, then a lot of companies have regular fire sales.02/17/2015 - 7:28pm
Matthew Wilsonam I the only one that swwms a bit concerned at the fact that it seems like sega is doing a fire sale?02/17/2015 - 7:26pm
WymorenceFor a few bucks more you can get 4 of the 5 Genesis packs and a bunch of oldschool Sonic games as well as Toejam & Earl 1 and 202/17/2015 - 6:44pm
WymorenceIt's not just that one Sega pack either, they're doing a giant Sega game series sale for digital games02/17/2015 - 6:43pm
Andrew EisenAnd also, what are you talking about regarding Nintendo pulling content from other platforms?02/17/2015 - 6:41pm
Andrew EisenI get that you don't want Nintendo to own either company. That's cool. But look at it this way: which company's games do you value more?02/17/2015 - 6:40pm
prh99I think the poll needs a neither option. I could see them pulling content from other platforms, cause well they are kind of jerks like that.02/17/2015 - 6:35pm

Papa MidnightAndrew: I think that, after a point, the company is the product. As an example, if you look at 2K Games, a lot of their PC releases have been eating flak over the past year for significant issues. Hence, the same rumblings about Ubisoft have started to02/17/2015 - 4:33pm

Andrew EisenSharing mechanics between games is not necessarily indicative of a crappy game or a bad practice.02/17/2015 - 2:45pm
Matthew WilsonI am not saying its unique to ubisoft, but I am saying they are worse about it than most.02/17/2015 - 2:44pm
Andrew EisenStill not necessarily indicative of a crappy game or an observation unique to Ubi.02/17/2015 - 2:41pm
Matthew Wilsonmaybe, but ubisoft is especially bad about it though. watchdogs,fc4,and the crew share allot of mechanics.02/17/2015 - 2:38pm
Andrew EisenAlso not really unique to Ubi but accurate nonetheless.02/17/2015 - 2:38pm
Andrew EisenIt would also be fair to say that most of Ubi's releases last fall were a buggy mess.02/17/2015 - 2:37pm
Andrew EisenYeah, Unity is a mess but I hear Rogue is good. Black Flag seems to be well liked. The franchise has had its low points but overall it seems to be a solid series (though I don't personally care for it).02/17/2015 - 2:37pm
Andrew EisenAgain, the fact that sequels are similar to their predecessors is not necessarily indicative of a crappy game. Nor is it an observation unique to Ubisoft.02/17/2015 - 2:35pm
Andrew EisenHa! Oops. Assassin's Creed Unity. Now there's a goof!02/17/2015 - 2:33pm
Matthew Wilsonalso fc4 is a reskined fc3.02/17/2015 - 2:32pm
prh99I pretty sure Assassin's Creed Unity is a game, a horribly broken one but still a game. I know, that's why suggested maybe they just aren't qualifying their statements properly. That or they are just slagging off all their products for whatever reason.02/17/2015 - 2:32pm
Andrew EisenNow, if people instead said "Ubisoft is a crappy company" I'd agree in a lot of respects.02/17/2015 - 2:30pm
Andrew EisenUnity isn't a game and Ubi makes a heck of a lot more than just Watchdogs.02/17/2015 - 2:29pm
prh99Maybe people just aren't qualifying their statements properly. I know I said they make sh***y games, mostly in reference to Watchdogs and Unity.02/17/2015 - 2:28pm
Papa Midnighttheir customer support, and Origin's actual functionality, in gaming forums (including reddit's PCMR, which loves VALVe, but commonly complains about Steam's customer support).02/17/2015 - 2:23pm
Papa MidnightOh, that I don't agree with. Such a blanket statement is inaccurate, but common amongst gamers (or really anyone) who feel agrieved by the actions of a company. As an example, look at the viewpoints expressed about EA - yet they're commonly lauded for02/17/2015 - 2:22pm
Andrew EisenOh, I get the issues with Ubisoft as a company and I can understand them even leading to a personal boycott of its products. What I don't understand are blanket statements that all of its games are crap.02/17/2015 - 2:19pm
Papa MidnightUPlay did not exist when I posted that diatribe.02/17/2015 - 2:14pm
Papa Midnightbe the breaking point regarding my issues (at that time) with Ubisoft: http://forums.steampowered.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1850437 (I say at that time as I have seen numerous additional problems by Ubisoft that further turn me off). Also, consider that02/17/2015 - 2:14pm
Papa MidnightAndrew Eisen: For me to describe my issues with Ubisoft, I'd need a lot more space than the Shoutbox here affords me. That said, here is a link to my terribly unpolished rant from several years ago on the (original) Steam forums about what I considered to02/17/2015 - 2:13pm
prh99That's why I added "what one would expect from triple A." probably while you were replying to it. :)02/17/2015 - 2:12pm
Andrew EisenOh, you mean not enough changes between the individual installments in each franchise. Hardly unique to Ubi but a fair enough observation.02/17/2015 - 2:08pm
prh99Farcry and Assassin's Creed. I mean Farcry 3 and 4 may as well be the same game. Young man goes to tropical country, get drawn into to fight for the local rebels, must capture radio towers to open the map.02/17/2015 - 2:05pm
Andrew EisenStill not seeing it. What games are you thinking of?02/17/2015 - 2:04pm
prh99Generally the same mechanics and same quest types. It what one would expect from triple A.02/17/2015 - 2:02pm
Andrew EisenI'm not seeing it. Samey in what way?02/17/2015 - 1:57pm
prh99I always though their game were very pretty, but also very samey at least for Assassin Creed and Farcry. I dislike them more for UPlay and their buggy releases.02/17/2015 - 1:55pm
Andrew EisenAnother comment I see frequently that I've never understood is the idea that all Ubisoft's games are crap. I have a lot of issues with Ubisoft as a company but in my ever so humble opinion, it still makes a lot of great games.02/17/2015 - 1:47pm
prh99Of the ones of I've played, not really. I wouldn't say they are horrible just not something I find all that great.02/17/2015 - 1:39pm
Andrew EisenWow. You don't like ANY of Nintendo's IP? Cool if you don't but it has so many different IPs it's hard to imagine there not being at least one you dig.02/17/2015 - 1:33pm
prh99Good is subjective. Popular, but not necessarily good. Unrelated but I saw this while check my email https://games.yahoo.com/news/3ds-xl-sales-already-buoying-165423991.html It's Ben Kuchera so take it for what it's worth.02/17/2015 - 1:24pm
