Forums - Gaming Discussion - So Emily Rogers and Eurogamer were creating fake news and fake rumors?

Pokemon will happen. They have to spread the good news through the year.
But yeah, just say no to "leakers" and insiders.

Obviously you haven't paid attention to what Gamefreak said:

http://www.forbes.com/sites/olliebarder/2016/12/16/game-freak-may-wait-and-see-with-the-nintendo-switch-before-releasing-a-new-pokemon-game-on-it/#21046a3f6409

They will wait and see if the console is selling well or not before developping on it.

People expecting an exclusive main Pokemon game to a very small fanbase on a 330 euros console will be proved wrong. They won't accept to sell only a couple of million on Switch when they can sell 15 millions on 3DS.

Emily Rogers work for Eurogamer.

She announced female link, Mario at launch, Zelda delayed and others at Eurogames announced BGE2 presented by Ubisoft on 13 January and Pokemon Stars.

Firstly Link?

Secondly, there is a difference between an employee working for the company and the company posting something. If Emily does work for Eurogamer but Eurogamer doesn't actually write articles about her so called "leaks," then are tweets from Emily are not representative of Eurogamer...

She does represent them even if she posts it on her Twitter. And Eurogamers were publishing other rumors that were not confirmed as well.



OBE1 Plays got a ton of things correct. I'd imagine Nintendo is saving the bigger things for E3. You don't want to go into E3 without things to show. I think if E3 bombs, we should worry.



well, i dont thing emily was forging rumors, just missinterpreting.
Maybe she could interpreted zelda as a famale link(both are on blue, and zelda kinda seems the famale version of link).
She said that seems that mario was more polished than zelda and would probablier be at launch than zelda. Just her interpretation of polishment.
Maybe BG&E and pokemon can be on switch afterwards. Seem as working title cold led she to interpret nintendo would show them at 13 jan...

How does she represent Eurogamer if she posts on Twitter? Eurogamer has their own twitter which represents them... And yea, I know Eurogamer published the Zelda delay rumor but what other one did they publish from the list of yours?

And can I see a Link to that "She is an employee of Eurogamer"

That's how life works. People get fired all the time for tweeting stuff. You are always a represetive for your workplace. Take politics. How often did we have companies try to distance themselves from an employee or fire an employee who said something on twitter or facebook on their own PERSONAL accounts. They weren't doing it as part of their job or for their company, but people see you as a representative. If you post something racist online, they figure that the place you work for be a racist place or accept racists, or ect.

What she is doing is taking that to the extreme. She is tweating about video game stuff, which is what she does for a living. If there ever was a representation of your job it would be that.



Someone should keep a running % of how each of these people get things right or wrong. And anytime they post a rumor and we share it, we include their track record % just to give ourselves an understanding of their reliability.

It looks like you are true, she is actually a "freelance" and not an employee. My mistake. From my list, Eurogamer also published Pokemon Star.

Firstly, I would really like to see that link of her being an employee of Eurogamer.

Secondly, there is a difference between a business statement and an employee statement. If say my friend works at walmart and I ask him, what is your favorite console? And he says Nintendo. Why would I think that Walmart is a bunch of Nintendo fanbois? The only time I could think that is if the CEO or someone that is that high up says that or if the company states that in an official post. But either ways, lets move on cause it seems that she doesn't work for Eurogamer after all.
