Hideki Kamiya is known to mess with trolls but Gimme Gimme Games writes about why telling Smash Bros fans to f*** off isn't a good move from any angle you look at it.
I don't think Kamiya even meant it in a funny way. You are being asked many many times, so I really don't see how any person wouldn't be annoyed by them. We feel, react, and even hurt people, which is all part of human nature no matter how professional you need to be.
No matter how you spin it, this was utterly unprofessional from Kamiya's part. Period. He fucked up big time here, and I don't think Nintendo will be happy with this. Remember, Nintendo is PUBLISHING two of Kamiya's games, so the dude needs to learn some restraint. Did you ever saw Fils-Aime or Iwata or Miyamoto tell Nintendo fans to "fuck off" because they were asking for Earthbound? Nope, never. And you can bet your ass the dudes screaming for Earthbound / Mother were much more noisy and vocal than those asking for Bayonetta in the next Smash. Kamiya was stupid in reacting like that, and there's no way around that.
learn some restraint? so you're saying that even you won't overreact if I asked you the same question over and over and over and over and over and over and over again. it's like a fu**ing time bomb that someone is building upon another person whether it's done intentionally or not. Yes, you are right, he was stupid in reacting like that, but even that is part of human nature. i doubt he is going to change because that is who he is. Smash bros is not even something he is a part of, so why do people keep asking the WRONG guy? Yes, I am implying something here. This people probably know Kamiya's ways, so they pester him to get his bad side out. This happened before when fans were pestering him about MGRR, which he had no involvement with.
Yes, I would feel annoyed, but still I wouldn't react like that, considering Nintendo is publishing two of my games.
You know what? Who cares? Some people asked him the same question REPEATEDLY, even after he had given them answers. And when he DID go off, he didn't call out the whole community, or Nintendo. Quoted from comment #7 below: "Enough of smash idiots. Fuck off. http://twilog.org/PG_kamiya... … RT @Cruz9488: Bayonetta in Smash Bros 4?" How about a little context? I mean, hell, it doesn't take much context to see why he might react that way. Don't assume that because one person responds a certain way, that everyone else should, as well. Professional or not, they're still human beings, and they have every right to snap and tell somebody off as the consumers who push them to that point in the first place. It's fine if you don't like how he responded, but it's pretty pretentious of you to set some standard that others must conduct themselves by.
If you're tired of the questions, ignore them? It's like eating a bag of sprouts and then complain you don't like it.
He never shows humility or class.
I'm not even sure he's a real person on twitter. Kamiya!Bot doesn't care 'bout yo feelings! But I bet this is going to be another "Next week..." saga. Namely, people who haven't looked at his twitter history posting his reptitive trolling as if it's real news every other month.
He didn't tell fans of Smash Bros. to fuck off; he told the handful of retards who constantly ask the same question over and over and over to fuck off. There's a difference.
Umm.. I don't why this shocks people, this is the way he always is. He gets pissed off when people ask him the same thing over and over. Remember when people wouldn't stop asking about the new DMC? https://twitter.com/PG_kami... I'm not saying that his behavior professional or anything, it's just the way he's always been. You'd probably get mad if people asked you the same thing again and again.
Pretty much, i'm not saying this is okay, but this is how Kamiya is. No filter says it how it is. If you're so offended then don't pay the man attention and move on. As I've been saying, don't take it seriously.
He doesn't make smash brothers why ask him? Why not ask that creator? If i said don't ask me again because I am tired of the same question and you ask then I can respond anyway I want.
REPOST: "All he said was... "Enough of smash idiots. Fuck off. http://twilog.org/PG_kamiya... … RT @Cruz9488: Bayonetta in Smash Bros 4?" He did not say, "I hate Smash Bros.!" He did not say, "Bayonetta will never be in SB!" He just said, IMO, "I am tired of talking about it, and I am tired of people bringing it up." -It seems like he was calling the people who were pestering him "Smash Idiots" not the FANS of SSB nor was he insulting the game (SSB). With a little empathy- You can work out that if you had a Twitter account to talk about/promote your projects- You probably would not want to spend your time talking about somebody else's (no matter how great they are)."
SSB Fans can be annoying I'm one of them Love Hideki he is still awesome
The author of this article says: “treat people how you want to be treated”. I agree- Do you want to be called arrogant and unfeeling just because people keep "trolling" you and purposely plotting to get on your nerves. If you really believed this, “treat people how you want to be treated": You would let it go. And forgive his human mistake without wishing Failure on his future projects. Unless you were one of the "Trolls" or fans- why are you so Butt-Hurt about what that guy said?
It looks like he was telling a twitter troll to fuck off. Not fans in general. I can understand, it its very tempting. But you cannot lose your cool, because that it the reaction they are hoping for. Just like extreme fanboys.
good i wish more developers would speak their mind.
