Who gives a rats a*s about this, unless you are a little nerd who is confused about what is reality and what is fiction, who just playes Doa volleyball, which i must say is a really lame game, no offence to women gamers, but if this article has anything to do with women right sand stuff, i'm just gonna laugh my head off, because no one could give a rats a*s, i bet some womens right campainger was all offended by the gamming industry because it's apparently more of a guy thing , please get real.

1 thing I've realized over the years is that Nintendo likes bragging about "fun", but it's "fun" how they see fit, and they often go against their consumers for the dumbest reasons. Just gonna do this stuff underground style, who are Nintendo to stop anyone from organizing community based tournaments anyway? How does this actually hurt em?

They've always wanted smash to be seen as a fun, casual game and nothing remotely competitive, which is in stark contrast with how Sakurai develops smash. He puts in so many little things to master for high level competitors. It's just sad, especially for the melee community. They kept the community going for 2 decades now even while all the time nintendo was trying to sabotage them.
