I’m sick of seeing this cycle of shit all over the web. Nintendo, Microsoft or Sony announces they lost a bunch of money or employees. Half the comments are “oh well they’re doomed snurf durf“, and the other half is “no, they’re not. here’s the math and here’s my dick.” Both sides need to shut the fuck up and realise you have nothing to do with any of this. One side looks stupid for being bitter against a piece of plastic, and the other side looks stupid creating problems and defending thin air around the plastic.
What do you think people see when they search for Wii U on social media right now? A bunch of morons arguing about the latest fiscal report. Who wants to get anywhere NEAR that shitstorm? No sane person. Certainly nobody looking to have fun. If you work for a game company, then that’s cool. You might need something to do well because it’s your bank account. You might need to discuss strategies for your game or company. If not, then look over to your gaming console and enjoy it for what it is, not what it isn’t. Stop representing a brand and represent YOURSELF, for the good of both things.
This wise Kikwi has learned something many internet warriors wont figure out until they are 45, naked, and sitting alone in a basement as the WiFi they are stealing from their parents cuts out. Flopping about like an embarrassing fool does not make your favourite company look better. The sudden announcement of Pokemon Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire with no screenshots or trailer ready suggests to me that Nintendo wanted everyone to shut the fuck up about the financial report. They didn’t like what their own fans were talking about. Their problem, not ours.
I get that people love Wii U or Xbone, I share that love. I don’t want Wii U to fail for a ton of reasons (and I don’t think it will), but good intentions are being sorely misplaced when you build up a defensive wall over nothing. It alienates everybody who just wants to play a game. You know, the sole reason game consoles exist. There are enough different consoles, distribution methods, policies and region-locks in place right now that gamers are already drifting further apart without setting up more battlefields. You don’t need to be a soldier for anybody. With social media as active as it is right now, I’m not seeing any brilliant moments of enlightenment and celebration; just a whole load of gunfire that makes me want to close the tab. Put the arguments down, please, I can’t hear the music in the game I’m playing.
