Speak with your money. If you don't like it, stop buying Nintendo products.

But since that's not happening, you're wasting your time.

And in other news, man yells at cloud.

Should've got rid of the comment box instead of the dislike button. Youtube comments aren't the least bit nice.

And children are starving in Africa. So what?


My statement was aimed at what the OP had to say about the PRC's ban:


Societal harmony is a big thing in Asian culture, and the homosexual culture here in the West is very flamboyant. It is not surprising to consider that there would be a culture clash.

And what is the harm, exactly? Is it merely "creators should be allowed to tell stories they want to tell," or is it that there is a tacit admission that media in the West has been used as a vehicle of pro-homosexual propaganda?

If it is the latter, then who are we to say that other cultures should be forced to have propaganda pushed on them? Isn't that kinda what we usually find fault with State media in China, anyways?

It's pretty hard for me to take his sobs about censorship and contempt for Nintendo's consumers seriously when he'll shrug at that ban at best and try to blame its victims for its existence at worst.

Now if they were trying to silence reviewers that would be one thing. But disabling youtube likes is a pretty normal practice for pretty much any uploader.


likes are dumb. leave a like if you agree.


*pats on head* that'll do xD

Which is stupid. I guess people forgot its a spin off just like Halo: Reach on Xbox 360 was a spin off. But fans didn't rage that they didn't get to control master chief. Guess that game gets a pass "Cuz Halo"

But this one gets the third degree just because your not controlling Samus? Game looks fun, don't see why people are up in arms.


It's just the vocal minority yelling and screaming.

Disabling the dislike button is what liberals, sjws, and people that can't handle critisism do. It is in no way normal and I rarely see it outside of liberal and sjw posts, and corporate PR videos.

Hilarious, yes. Anyone could even post scathing reviews of Nintendo games using the very same site, Youtube. Not exactly on the same level as China's venture into thought policing.

Not sure how anyone could be understanding of policing homosexuality to such a degree when they already apparently feel forced to restrict the number of children people can have. It's as if their laws are based on personal whims rather than logic and fairness.

Glad you noticed the difference, too!


After all, one is an autocratic tool of the State that isn't answerable to the citizens, and one is a publicly owned company which is answerable to consumers and shareholders.

I think it depends on the situation, but Nintendo is a family friendly company. If people were posting inappropriate comments on that game then I can see how disabling the comments would be a good idea. And as for the game trailer it looks really boring, but the likes on the video wouldn't influence my decision to buy or not to buy. I mean people are still going to discuss the game on other public forums, Nintendo can't really stop all negative feedback.
