I don't mind the fact he's trying to get his game finished. Kudos to that. What I don't like is the way he's going about it. He sounds like a immature child who wants a cookie from the cookie jar, but mommy Nintendo said no, so he's bawling and whining. I've seen enough of that in my internet career, and it's nothing new or special, just annoying.
It's a marketing scheme. Nobody does any serious bitching while assuming the identity of a fictional character, especially if said fictional character happens to come from the game the person in question is trying to finish.

This is the end of my pitch to Nintendo of America- which Mr. Tom Prata, Senior Director of Project Development, authorized on Feb 22, 2008. Thanks to all Nintendo staff and to Nintendo's PR department for allowing this to continue as long as it has.
If Nintendo decides not to proceed, "bob's game" will be released for iPhone, Android, and possibly OpenPandora, XBLA, Steam, and PSP. I am a Nintendo fan, and I would like to see "bob's game" released on the Nintendo DS more than any of these systems. Please let Nintendo know if you would like to show your support for "bob's game" being released on the DS.
In this age of nearly infinite information flow and instant turnover, getting a message out there is nearly impossible, even with millions of dollars for advertising. Yet I have succeeded at this and caught the attention of nearly the entire online gaming world- from a locked room with a cell phone and no budget whatsoever.
If this does not demonstrate to Nintendo the determination, passion, creativity, and ingenuity that I am capable of, then I don't know what will. Unorthodox, of course. I had to do something completely new, something that hadn't been tried before- and it worked. bobsgame.com has now had over 1 million unique visitors. My mission has been a success. In other words, Thank Yuu for playing.
I think this definitely proves/reinforces that it is/was just a (very very low budget) marketing campaign

Yeah. 'Gantendo' is probably in that game of his as the super powerful / evil company. I'm willing to bet he never intended to get that SDK at all and will eventually just release this for the PC. He's never going to get one anyway as there are a shitload of requirements a company must meet before Nintendo gives one away. Not to mention a lot of $'s.
Anyway it was funny when it seemed like he was losing his mind. Now it's just boring.
I've been given a device that allows me to communicate with the aliens by amplifying the telepathic signal. That's really a relief for both of us. There's only so much you can learn with a probe, apparently, so they've resorted to communication. (That's just a little alien humor. ;} )
So anyway, here's the deal. I'm supposed to give everybody a message, and they're giving me secrets about Nintendo they've picked up on their thought network. Here's what they wanted me to say. I'm not really sure about all of it, but it's the best I can understand it.
Supposedly, they came and talked to the leaders of some civilizations a long time ago on different sides of the world, but they didn't really understand anything they were told. Since they only communicate through telepathy, there were all these guys running around saying they had "visions" and "prophecies" and most of them got locked away. I guess this was back before they knew what gravity was, so that makes sense. I can see that it would be hard to explain the origins of the universe to people that think the earth is flat.
The only thing those leaders understood was that we're supposed to build triangular polyhedron buildings so that our position is easier to triangulate from another dimension when we die. Sounds a little bit crazy to me, but I guess we humans DO know there's another dimension and we just don't know how to use it yet. We're just now getting into that whole "spooky action" quantum thing. They told me it's what they use for the telepathic communication, and we're all capable of it, something like a subconscious neural network. Sounds cool enough. I don't really get the whole gist of it, but I'm sure there's some stuff we haven't figured out yet, so I'm giving them the benefit of the doubt.
They said something about implanting some guy with a matter-manipulation module a couple thousand years ago, and everyone got really upset about it. I guess that was some kind of test, and everyone really got the wrong idea. They're on the fence about doing it again, they're still not sure if we're ready. They think the best way might be to give it to a lot of people in a few years instead of just one guy. That's all I know, I'll try to find out more. Anyway, take this all with a grain of salt. I really don't know what they're talking about, since they don't even communicate in English. It's more like abstract thoughts get beamed into your head. Sort of like dreaming while you're awake. Really strange stuff.
As far as Nintendo goes, the aliens said Super Mario 128 is still in development and Nintendo is probably going to show it at E3, along with Metroid Dread and Kid Icarus. That makes a lot of sense too, since Super Mario Galaxy wasn't made by the regular team, it was made by the Jungle Beat guys. I guess that Miyamoto fellow said the Wii was made for Super Mario 128, then he backpeddled and said it was cancelled. I'm not sure how this helps me destroy them, but I suppose spoiling that guy's magnum opus will upset him at least. I'll try to find out more details. Remember, it's not like I have any contacts with NCL. It's aliens. Definitely aliens.
I don't know what to say really . . . with all this info it really does feel like he planned this from the beginning. Sucks he had to do the whole crazy hate against Nintendo thing.
Also stage 50 is going to happen in 5 days and "will be the best (the best!)" in Bob's words.

I don't know what kind of marketing the Dark Knight had, but Cloverfield's was clever. They held off showing the monster until you actually saw the movie. Everything in the movie was a surprise because they didn't show a lot in the previews. That is good marketing.
This asshole starts off saying how he's pissed off at Nintendo for not replying to him, then he threatens to kill himself, and it's not until people start saying "I'm not buying a game from this lunatic" when he decides to say that aliens are taking over his brain. So, fuck him.
Nester the Lark: Also, I know YL isn't into speedruns, but he might be interested to know that RPG Limit Break is having a Gust marathon all weekend, including several Atelier games.

nocturnal YL: Ah… Bad timing. I didn't read this until now, when it's almost over.
Sept 27, 2020 12:59:22 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: Well, if you're still interested, they'll be uploading the replays to their YouTube channel later this week.

Shrikeswind: I like that Mayles put her back in her kneepads. What's the last game they were in? One of the Kongas? It was a good look for her, albeit very 90's.

Shrikeswind: The jokes call to me, their siren song a temptation I can hardly bear, yet I must stay my tongue. Confound my dirty sense of humor.
Oct 16, 2020 13:05:51 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: The replies I see to anything Nintendo posts on Twitter are probably an indication as to why they abandoned Miiverse and decided that social media should be someone else's responsibility.

nocturnal YL: As mentioned in Twitter, I'm currently playing Atelier Meruru DX. I'm thinking about writing reviews for the Arland series afterwards, as well as making a second Nintendo Switch review video after I finish either this or my next game.
Nov 7, 2020 8:46:05 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: ^ I would be interested in seeing your reviews of the Arland games.

Nester the Lark: So, there's been Hyrule Warriors and Fire Emblem Warriors. But guys, how about this: Punch-out Warriors! It's like Punch-out, but you fight all of your opponents at once!
Nov 12, 2020 12:12:00 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: Sounds punchy, but unless it's a real knock-out I don't think it'd be a hit.
