Nintendo Announces “Ask Iwata”, Backfires Greatly

This morning, April 1st, Nintendo announced a new way to communicate directly with their fans. With the success of Nintendo President’s “Iwata Asks” series, alongside the infamous “Nintendo Direct” series, this new direction has Satoru Iwata responding to questions directly via Twitter, Facebook, Skype and other various social media.

"This morning, April 1st" stopped reading there.

These'journalists' need to stop going to school for writing. It's a talent, not something you learn. Jesus, such poor writing skills.

Writing isn't learned? Are you serious? Of course you need to develop a talent for it, but you do so through learning.

Kenshin_BATT0USAI1271d ago

You don't develop talent via learning, that's what you call knowledge and skill. NOT TALENT.

SilentNegotiator1271d ago

Talent is the utilization of knowledge and skill.

1) Talent can be improved with practice.

2) I like your loose use of the word journalist (not being sarcastic)... These people wish they were journalists.

3) How many of these game writers actually went to school especially for journalism? I bet it isn't many and so I would argue they need to go back.

Kenshin_BATT0USAI1271d ago

I dunno, I just find most of the non-schooled ones are the good writers and the schooled ones are just so...cut and dry.

You don't have to be a "journalist" to write dumb stuff like this. I don't call myself a journalist at all because it would be a completely wrong description of what I do.

That picture looks like something a kid would do on paint.

It was GIMP, to be precise.

Iwata pay cut incoming....

So basically, selfish entitled gamers ruined something meant to be useful for people who actually care about gaming or this was a very poor attempt at an April Fool's joke....either way it's awful.

It's a poor attempt at an April Fool's joke...

April 1st was a poor day in gaming news. I avoided all things gaming because of all of the lame April fools jokes.
