I respect Colin Moriarty, but this is clearly a different Nintendo. It may not be different in all of the ways that he and I want, but they are unquestionably doing things much differently than they have for the last decade, and they are unquestionably in a much, much, much better position with the Switch than they were with the Wii U.



Well, this is new.

The thing is that I'm not an experienced gaming journalist with more than a decade of experience who used to work at the biggest gaming editorial. So when you're biased as fuck and a journalist... that looks bad... and that's why now he's a youtuber and their channel is a joke compared to other youtubers. I like Greg tho.

No. That's not the reaosn why he's a youtuber. He's a Youtuber because him and Greg are good friends and they wanted to do their own thing together.

I don't like Colin, but if you're going to talk shit about him, at least be factual.

No, I'm being very factual. He's a youtuber cause he said that he wanted to be free to talk about subjects and about how he feels, also he didn't want to wait for approval when he had an article or an opinion piece. Now he's a youtuber because that's what he wants, he doesn't want to be a journalist, he wants to share his pov, and that comes with all the rants and biased shit.



So far I've seen multiple pages of people who can only attack the messenger, but not the message. I believe that is the point he is trying to drive home. I don't think he cares what you think about him personally, its the point that even Nintendo's biggest fans have a hard time actually defending many of the points he, and many others, have levied against them.

Ohh right, because before the Vita was released, it was easy to gauge how difficult it was to port games to the Vita, and know how little Sony was actually going to support that platform. He was supposed to know how a lot of Sony's plans for the platform were going to fall through. Of course. What an idiot. The article is about the Vita's potential, and it had a lot before it was release. The potential was just wasted. What an asshole.

The article was posted in October 2011. At that point in time it was already known that the Vita wouldn't get Monster Hunter. Launch lineup was known. Price was known. The competition (Nintendo) was known.

At that point anyone who wasn't a complete Sony fanboy could tell that the Vita would not outsell the 3DS.

It's ridiculous that you even try to defend him as someone who is credible. Your first post started by saying that he is a Nintendo fan when the evidence we have points towards a PS fanboy. He's not just biased, he's incredibly biased. Hence why his Vita prediction was so off.

He's known to be a PS fanboy. But he always repeats how he loves Nintendo and used to be one of their fanboys back in the 1920s. It's as if he feels that by claiming that it should give his opinions more credibility.

He's a youtuber because Colin and Greg left their jobs at IGN to make the Kinda Funny channel, and they're actually more successful as a result.

And they left their job because they wanted to be free and share their pov. Like this video, being a journalist at ign he can't make a video like this. That's what I'm saying.

That's not what you said.

You said: "when you're biased as fuck and a journalist... that looks bad...and that's why now he's a youtuber and their channel is a joke compared to other youtubers."

 "when you're biased as fuck and a journalist... that looks bad...(talking about the article of the vita) and that's why now he's a youtuber (yes, he's ayoutuber cause as a journalist he can't make these kind of rants, and that's what he wants) and their channel is a joke compared to other youtubers." (well, it's  joke, their podcast is not entertaining, and their information is not that accurate, they even have a Nintendo guy that looks out of place and sometimes doesn't know what he's talking about)

I remember the time with all those threads about the switch how awesome its going to be, how it will get every 3 party game ect. and now after the reveal there are gone, I start to miss them.

Polygon levels of wrong.

what I don't like about colin is that he's not too informative, he says stuff even if he's wrong. I saw the video and I see a big rant, "same old Colin" that's what I saw. He's video, just like a lot of people, screams "this console is doomed because of one presentation" same old "the playstation vita is set to succeed" colin. Same old colin, ironic.

Ay lmao!

That guy is a comedian!

Probably unintentionally.



Nintendo will never change much. They do things their own way, they are not only just a Japanese company, but a Kyoto-based Japanese company, which means they are incredibly stubborn. Stop expecting them to change, they're not going to change.

They will make some adjustments, but they will never suddenly just become like this radically different company. Not going to happen.

You either accept Nintendo for what they are and enjoy it, but if you're sitting around waiting for Nintendo to dramatically change, that ain't happening.

And people always over exaggerate a few things of change each generation "GameCube uses discs! And is easy to program for! Nintendo has changed!" .... not really, there was still plenty of "oh, Nintendo" moments with the GameCube. And Wii. And Wii U. And there will be with Switch.

It's the Nintendo way. The fan community is never going to wake up and have this perfect Nintendo, it's like a spouse that keeps thinking one day their significant other is going to wake up and magically be the person they want them to be, when they're not. You need to either accept them for what they are or move on.

This goes for both "Nintendo die hards" and "Nintendo haters" ... to both of you, Nintendo is likely going to piss you off or baffle you this generation. At least multiple times. You either accept that and just move on and play the games or you get hung up on it.
