PS: Excuses have to be made for such an ugly text layout, but i can't correct it more than what you see here!
Nintendopie Was obviously right and I was obviously wrong. I will forever be a lesser being than them. (6/16/13)
>Wah, wah, wah, poor little devs let me wipe their tears on my NOT CARING. I'm sorry, but there is NO way they can't just pick up a phone and call Nintendo of Europe for some bloody help. Nintendo DOES have the power and money for it, but if devs aren't willing to reach Nintendo halfway, then why should Nintendo do the same? This smacks of the kind of spoiled, childish developers that are plaguing the industry.
>And yet it seems indie devs like the guys making C-Wars, Cryamore, Days of Dawn, Dreamfall Chapters, Giana Sisters, Noctemis, Pier Solar, Shovel Knight, Super Ubi Land, etc have had ZERO problems getting in touch with Nintendo and have quite a bit of praise for the Wii U. Maybe it's something that only happens with so-called "AAA" gaming studios who are too lazy and spoiled to actually put some WORK into communicating. If they're not gonna act like pros, then I'm not gonna treat them like pros.
This isn't the first time I've seen that, and certainly won't be the last. Instead people here continue to blame the 3rd parties and 3rd parties only for not supporting Nintendo out of good will.
Watch this space - counting down to the GOTG soon
"I think Nintendo has a lot to gain from being more like Sony, by reaching out to developers and that way get more developers with them.
If that were to happen, you feel more enthusiasm as a developer, and perhaps you'd be inspired to make something cool, something good. In the case of Nintendo this could be something based on the GamePad for the Wii U."
(This is my translation)
So developers are children who need approval and encouragement from Nintendo to be inspired to develop something cool or good?
This is a laughable excuse and quite discouraging to see grown men fall back on this kind of thinking. In the real world it works like this:
You have the dev kits, you either use them to make something or you don't. It's up to you. Don't pretend that Nintendo needs to reach out to you, that it's too difficult to figure out how to do it, that you would like to do something it's just all these things that are out of our hands. This is excuse driven thinking and not the domain of men, that is how children think.
Finally, I think it's only fair to point out that the guy is Swedish, and that perhaps it reflects poorly on me to expect clear analytical thinking from a Swede.
