Lol Nintendo. At least they didn't try to take everything away from the LPers like Sega.

Poor Nintendo, trying to rob youtubers now? They must know WiiU is doomed for failure.

Or not. Just because you don't like a system doesn't mean it's doomed.

I think it's more Nintendo is afraid of roms and the company wants to make money any way they can.

They should be signing deals with LPers, not gimping them. Sign deals saying that popular LPers need to advocate buying said product from Nintendo and supporting the official release, etc. That makes both of them money.

How is WiiU doing anyway? Last I heard it was failing to capture the crowds like Wii did and many dev's wasn't interest in the console.

According to Wiki, as of the end of March, they sold about 3.45 million consoles. That's not bad, but it has mixed reviews also according to Wiki. I haven't even touched the console yet, so I can't pass full judgement yet.

There is one quirk with the Wii U

If people play it with friends as a party system, they LOVE it.

If people play it on their own, they HATE it.


The Wii U is a party system and always will be one. Yes there are going to be single-player games but those games would be better off going to the Wii. The Wii is also meant to be a party system but with the Wii, they made single-player games work. That's probably why Justin doesn't like the Wii or the Wii U.

It actually plays pretty smoothly. I've played a good deal over at my friends' place, and the system itself is solid. The tablet doesn't even feel awkward in any way. I'm still waiting for the next Zelda and/or Metroid, though.

Sadly, they did make some requests of TheRunawayGuys to make a video or two of their coin rush mode. And that has already been claimed by Nintendo.

What makes this worse than a video deletion notice is the fact that the monetization of the videos goes straight to Nintendo, instead of the people who made the videos.

I think deleting is worse because all of the LPer's hard work ends up being completely wasted. No viewers comments (which is what a good LPer wants - comments and views, not money), no views, the video is gone pretty much for good.

LP's put no work into their videos. They sit down, play games, and talk. No effort at all, but they now complain since they make no money off of doing nothing? This proves that some LPs only give a shit about money. Fucking peasants.

EW read what you typed again and JUST STOP.


Let's Players have to buy the recording equipment, record videos, edit videos, re-record if there is failed footage, etc. Now action-adventure games (and party games) will have less cuts than RPGs but LPing is still a hell of a lot more than "sitting on your ass and talking while playing games". Let's add in that most LPers have jobs/school/etc and do LPing in their FREE TIME.

I'd love to see you try to record an LP of your favorite game that you don't have a rom for. Let's start with you buying either a Dazzle or a camera to get the video. Now let's add in all of the editing that you will have to do, rendering, uploading to youtube.

While I don't LP (mainly cause my computer is shit), I understand the insane amount of work that actually goes into it. Most LPers take at least a day to get an episode of a game recorded, edited, and uploaded.

----

Once you get a job or start making good LPs that don't get shitloads of "You suck!!!!!!!11!!11!!111" comments you will understand the amount of work that goes into it.

Dude, those Pokemon LPs I started took like 3 hours each in editing. That shit's no joke.

Yea, maybe I was in a very bad mood that day.

After watching Linkara's adblock video, I was in a pissed off mood. (if you want to know why, just ask me on skype and I'll explain) That's why you see me having a vague and very WRONG analysis of my views of let's players.

So here's my true view.

I think people who bitch about not getting money on youtube or blip or whatever don't care about their fans. (If you want money, get a real life job, don't depend on the internet was my message) Not saying let's players deserve to be buttfucked and rid of their money and efforts from Nintendo's ego and failures, but I wouldn't bitch and bitch about the money, I would bitch about Nintendo not realizing how much failed with the Wii u and NOW, just NOW they take the money from the let's players, even though they are doing FREE advertisements. Since you know, Nintendo to lazy themselves to do make ads and decide "Hey, we said we are hardcore, let's see others make ads for us." and about 0 people made ads for them and when people did buy the Wii u, did LPs, Nintendo took the chances to recover from the losses and took others money.

Now, if the let's players talk about how Nintendo fuck them from their efforts because Nintendo bomb themselves, I would be fine with that, but no. People decide to say "MY MONEY BOO HOO" and cried. Now some did this, but I haven't seen anyone in my video list.

So yea, robbing Let's players is wrong, however, talk about the right reasons, but the money.

Furthermore, most LPers immediately use the money they earn to buy better recording equipment, or new consoles and games, of which they turn around and make more videos. Claiming copyright ID on these videos only stagnates the flow of cash that goes into these transactions, and that's not good for anyone.
