The thing that makes Bob really stupid is the fact that he thought this would be a first party Nintendo game.
The site tells different:
I don't need a publisher, that's not the issue. I must become a licensed developer to have a licensed game with licensed tools. I'm not asking Nintendo to publish my game- they aren't a publisher for third party titles. Many publishers are interested in "bob's game." All I'm asking from them is that they allow me to purchase a DVD with the software I need to get my game into retail shrinkwrap.
LOL, the police raided his home because he faked death.
"RAIDED BY THE POLICE WHILE FAKING HIS OWN DEATH ON WEBCAM AND DOESN'T AFRAID OF ANYTHING! IM ALIVE! Thanks to all concerned for the response, sorry to everyone disappointed by my lack of death, BIGGEST UPDATE IN THE HISTORY OF MANKIND TOMORROW! SORRY, REGGIE!"
So that trashed room and stuff was all to fake his death - maybe his psychotic episodes were also faked? What's up with that guy?!
The mild-mannered programmer of "bob's game," hopelessly tormented into a state of apparent madness from solitary confinement, has been valiantly pulled from the tragic wreckage of his former office by the local authorities- but they were too late.
The mental torment Bob has suffered has begun his metamorphosis into the end boss villian of "bob's game," the egomaniacal creator of the "bob's game" inside "bob's game" known as "Bob."
Once again barricading himself inside of what appears to the untrained eye to be the same office but is assuredly a secret dungeon lair, he will begin carrying out his ridiculous, meticulous, deluded, convoluted, senseless mess of vengeance... Or has he already begun?
END OF CHAPTER ONE, REGGIE!
I am secluded, barricaded, and locked into the crimson room of my TOP SECRET CLASSIFIED UNDERGROUND FORTRESS. The LED board will be incremented once a day, beginning at 31 for some mysterious and likely villainous reason. Sometimes it will display hints and secret messages.
On day 100 the "bob's game" tournament will begin. Yuu cannot find me. Yuu cannot stop me. Yuu cannot defeat me.
This is my 100 day challenge to Yuu, Nintendo.
I, the magnificent, omnicient Bob- legendary developer of the greatest game ever made- hereby challenge Yuu in the First Interdimensional "bob's game" Championship!
I have had ENOUGH. YUU JUST WON'T LISTEN! I'm not playing around here. This isn't some kind of game. I've spent FIVE YEARS trying to play by the rules. I've tried going by the book, reading the manual, following the instructions - but Yuu just won't play fair, Nintendo.
This time, Yuu will play by MY rules.
It's time for a surprisingly surprising turn of events- a twisted plot twist! By playing "bob's game," Yuu will destroy the evil, corrupted GANTENDO organization! (EVERY TIME Yuu plays "bob's game," Bob kills a Pikachu!)
But I like Nintendo! This is terrible! YUU MUST NOT PLAY "bob's game!" YUU MUST DEFEAT ME!
YUU MUST BE STOPPED! YUU CANNOT WIN!
WHAT IS GOING ON HERE?! THIS SENSELESS REVENGE MAKES ABSOLUTELY NO SENSE!
I ASSURE YUU- I AM VERY SERIOUS!
I'll see Yuu there on day 100, REGGIE! ;}
(Oh yeah, I'm still waiting for that developer application decision so I can get that SDK. Just letting yuu know. No pressure, man.)
"bob's game" 2009 RAIDED BY THE POLICE WHILE FAKING HIS OWN DEATH ON WEBCAM AND DOESN'T AFRAID OF ANYTHING!
Yes, I woke up to several very angry police officers in my room. The good news is that upon evaluation, I'm officially CERTIFIED SANE! (So they THINK, anyway...) Heh.. heh.. heheh.. haaaaaa..... HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!
Hey, no more headache!
I think GoNintendo was saying that Bob is not going crazy he is just acting out some of the characters in the game.
It should also be noted that he was originally in the viridian room and not the crimsom room.
It seems I've got Nintendo all wrong. They haven't abandoned their core gamers afterall. Why, REGGIE himself is excited to play the fresh new Wii version of Pikmin. He must be a core gamer!
Undoubtedly, they've been listening to their fans. That's exactly what we've all been asking for. It's definitely not some kind of hasty, misguided attempt to fulfill what they seem to think their fans want.
They couldn't possibly be so far out of touch with things that they'd try and satisfy us with something as dull and boring as a new franchise or fulfilling promised titles like Mario 128.
No, they're right on the money. They know what we're really asking for. Pikmin with different controls, Animal Crossing with identical graphics, and Wii Music- just what we wanted. This is the very definition of HARDCORE. Hats off to you, Nintendo.
I had you all wrong, REGGIE!
Also, I've observed a new psychological phenomenon and coined a term for it.
"Denioll" - When someone is "troled" SO HARD their brain completely rejects it and puts them into a temporary, malfunctioning state of irrational excuse-seeking.
Hold on just a second- that's not nearly villainous enough. I need to stay in character here.
Sometime in the next 20 days, I am going to reveal information with the potential to completely destroy Nintendo, simply for my own enjoyment.
Do you hear me, Mr. Iwata? Mr. Miyamoto? Mr. Yamauchi? I know the truth. Why don't you ask NOA? I told the entire company everything on day 10. I even told them about THAT a month ago. Don't tell me they didn't tell you! Those fools! Iwata- YUU will realize, tensai.
I'll do it. ;} REGGIE is done. DONE. I'll ruin it. I know. Do you hear me?
It's interesting that he admits to trying to keep in character. Also try clicking on the button below the webcam feed and you get this message.
"By clicking OK or submitting a digital signature with the X button, Yuu agrees to a lifetime of minimum wage slavery for the all-powerful Button Corporation Incorporated. (Even worn-out buttons can be exchanged for evil replacements. >;} )"

I don't think there was really a police raid. This is all part of some crazy viral marketing scheme Bob has going. Hell, I'd wager the game is actually already finished and he's just trying to build hype up for it's eventual release.
Bob's site has just been replaced by this enlarged wall of text, this has to be proof of marketing/acting liking one of the characters, I know in the third trailer an alien appears in it.
THAT IS NOT ME!! IT'S NOT ME!!! SOMEONE CAME INTO MY HOUSE THEY CAME INTO MY HOUSE!!! THEY WENT THROUGH EVERYTHING, WENT THROUGH MY PC, FILE TIMESTAMPS CHANGED, FOOTPRINTS, EVERYTHING MOVED, DOOR UNLOCKED THEY TRIED TO OPEN THE SAFE MY PC IS KEYLOGGED 12 HOURS OF CAMERA FOOTAGE WAS DELETED CAMERA WAS UNPLUGGED WHEN I WOKE UP I WAS SLEEPING!! THEY DID IT WHILE I WAS SLEEPING!! THIS IS NOT PART OF THE PLAN THIS IS NOT A JOKE THEY MADE HANAFUDA CARDS FOR 50 YEARS THAT IS A YAKUZA GAME THEY ARE THE JAPANESE MAFIA THEY ARE THE JAPANESE MAFIA THEY ARE THE JAPANESE MAFIA THEY ARE THE JAPANESE MAFIA THEY ARE THE JAPANESE MAFIA THINK ABOUT IT!! THEY WANT TO SILENCE ME FOR A REASON! IT'S EITHER THEM OR ALIENS I'M PRETTY SURE IT'S NOT ALIENS I'D RATHER IT BE ALIENS !
I know he's making it up because Yamauchi would not bother with such an insignificant speck. Either that, or he did have compromising information, he was taken care of and we haven't had the real Bob for a few days.
Fuck him. At this point I wouldn't even consider looking at his game.
Yeah, I'm pretty much at that point myself. The initial video was fairly impressive, but this attention whoring is getting very old very fast. If I ever get the time to develop a game like this, I wouldn't be acting like such an insane jackass about it.
Nester the Lark: Speaking of the song "Reincarnation," perhaps it might have sounded something like this if the game had gotten an English dub.

nocturnal YL: According to Nintendo's IR calendar, they're going to release their financial information up to December 2020 on 1 Feb. Switch sales (68.30 mil at Sep 2020) may very well surpass that of the 3DS (75.94 mil), but how will it compare to the GBA (81.51 mil)?
Jan 31, 2021 12:10:02 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: It's closer to the GBA sales than I thought. Switch hardware sales up to December 2020 is 79.87 mil, while I expected about 78 mil.
Feb 1, 2021 8:07:53 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Also, while they stopped counting 3DS and Wii U hardware sales, software went up from 385.12 mil to 385.85 mil and 103.27 mil to 103.31 mil. Switch software sales went from 456.49 mil to 532.34 mil, surpassing that of NES and Game Boy.

nocturnal YL: So now that I have a capture device, I've been looking at my games and tried to figure out the resolution and frame rate they run at. Trials Rising is 540p30, Project DIVA Mega Mix has the UI at 720p60 and the simpler, single-singer PVs run at 540p60…?
Feb 6, 2021 11:42:34 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: All the Atelier games I've seen so far (Arland 1-4) run at 1080p30, which is a bit surprising as I expected a lower resolution for Lulua. Void Terrarium and Puyo Puyo Tetris 1 and 2 all run at 1080p60. PPT1 also ran at 1080p60 on Wii U, so no surprise.
Feb 6, 2021 11:45:41 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: ↑ In Atelier Lulua, the system UI and even some parts with 3D models (like the synthesis screen) run at full 1080p at 60 fps. That's a huge leap from the previous two games in the series. World map runs at 30 fps though, despite not being intensive.
Feb 8, 2021 11:13:44 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Rune Factory 4 Special runs at 720p60. Fire Emblem Three Houses is a weird case; it looks like 900p30 to me, but because of the way the edge of the models are drawn, the graphics end up looking very ugly.

Nester the Lark: I've been doing the same thing I do every time I consider getting Smash Ultimate: playing Smash for Wii U. It turns out there are still plenty of people playing it online. Makes me curious about Splatoon 1.
Feb 20, 2021 10:08:42 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: The online also worked better than I remember. Maybe because there are fewer people...?
Feb 20, 2021 10:10:09 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: My skill curve in Smash Bros seems to be the opposite of other games: the more I play, the worse I get.
Feb 23, 2021 17:28:27 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: TIL I had not yet unlocked all the stages in Smash for Wii U. Just unlocked the last one today, six years after getting the game.
Feb 24, 2021 18:35:31 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: If you want a new perspective on your own Mario Maker levels, just wait more than three years before playing them again.
