Forums - Nintendo Discussion - I'm boycotting Bandai Namco

"I don't give a shit about this company anymore. I don't care about what they do anymore. I'm out."

You don't?

Honestly, you just sound like a salty fanboy.

I just bought 2 Namco games today. The thing is, if you really wanted to play their games then you would buy the appropriate console to do so. Since you haven't, it makes me think you don't really care about their games anyway. Or just be like me and own a switch and a ps4, problem solved.



Yeah I see myself buying 4 or 5 games from them in 2018

Do you boycott developers and publishers who put games on Nintendo platforms but skip either Playstation, Microsoft, or PC? Just curious.

Such as?



I'm done with Namco Bandai, never again

I’m pretty upset with the lack of Switch for God Eater 3, mainly because it’s a stupid business decision not to include it. There really isn’t any competition for that type of game on the Switch. Combine the fact it’s portable and then it sells more in Japan too. I could understand no Code Vein, but no God Eater? Especially when the majority of the fan base was on the Vita? Idk. If Bandai has/had plans to bring the game to the Switch, they should’ve announced it, regardless on how long it was gonna take.

Personally the only other games from them I’m upset aren’t confirmed for the system are Code Vein and the new One Piece game, and now God Eater 3. (I would also love ports of both Digimon Cyber Sleuth games)

I hope they decide to bring some more games to the Switch.

Most of their internally developed games are mediocre and low budget anime crap, so I don't really care.

Ni No Kuni 2 
Dragonball
Naruto
Little Witch Academia
My Hero Academia
Sword Art Online games (Infinity Moment, Hollow Fragment, Lost Song)
Tales of series 
Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth & Hacker's Memory
Dark Souls II & III  (and Dark Souls: Remastered)
Ace Combat
.hack//G.U. games

They make/publish some good games, not all of them are "greats" but alot of them are pretty good.

Boycutting them would hurt abit if your a fan of one of these series.

Ni No Kuni 2 was developed by Level-5.

Dragonball FighterZ was developed by Arc System Works

Dark Souls was developed by From Software (and self-published in Japan)

Like I said, their internally developed games are mostly mediocre anime crap.

Wouldn't it be a better idea to just boycott non-Switch Namco titles? I mean if you boycott Switch games they might not make any Switch games at all. If you boycott non-Switch titles they will switch gears faster. At least that's how I see it.



Tag:I'm not bias towards Nintendo. You just think that way (Admin note - it's "biased".  Not "bias")
(killeryoshis note - Who put that there ?)
Switch is 9th generation. Everyone else is playing on last gen systems!

Its a hard logic

1. Vow to boycott and show them they will not stand for their practices by buying ports of older games or late ports and speak with your money

then

2. Said dev/pub sees their game sales not selling due to boycott or whatever reason, then decide to not support the platform at all and no longer releases their games on said system

Oh damn, nail on the head right here. 

This is literally in my OP though...

Shitty game/late port sells -> more shitty games/late ports because they sell
Shitty game/late port doesn't sell -> no more games

I'm boycotting knowing this can happen because there is no scenario where I and others like me win. If we keep buying late ports, we get more late ports.

The only solution to that I guess is by eliminating your preference to Nintendo and just going for the system that has the games you want.
