Quite a while ago I linked to a Destructoid article
that said Nintendo of America needs to STFU
. It was a long-form rant with some good points and a bit of incoherent profanity, from an obviously bitter ex-Wii owner with a beef against Nintendo. At the time I missed the reply
article, which was from a Nintendo fan with a more reasoned approach and more really good points.
I admit the article is months old but what it says is still quite relevant--I never looked at Nintendo's publishing policy like this before. It puts a lot of the annoying stuff Reggie and NOA's PR reps have said into perspective. It makes me wonder what crazy, unique games we'd be getting if Iwata-san was in charge of Nintendo publishing in the States, instead of the scarce morsels we've had over the last couple of years.
Needless to say, give it a read.
