Nintendo shutting down Retro Studios is a world I don't wanna live in

From Nintendo Enthusiast: "Could Retro Studios be in trouble? There have been some anonymous users over on a website called Glassdoor coming forward about Retro Studios. Glassdoor is a website where people can spill secrets about their work environment. Current and ex-employees of Retro Studios have stated that upper-management is a major issue with the company. They also stated that half the studio is afraid of being shut down by Nintendo. Keep in mind, none of these comments could be true, so take everything with a grain of salt. Here are my thoughts on the matter."

I’ll believe it only when I see it

Nintendo has teams that haven't done anything in almost a decade. Closing retro is highly unlikely. They do apparently need a change in management based on glass door reviews and the fact they haven't put out a game since tropical freeze.

wouldn't surprise me. retro do nothing. only produce 1 donkey kong game per generation that nobody asks for.

-Foxtrot107d ago

I'll be annoyed if they do another side scroller platform game after two Donkey Kong games which were good but similar.

They need do either do a full on 3D Donkey Kong game like what Nintendo do with the main Mario games or do something else.

One guy said after Metroid Prime 3 it went downhill? DKC Tropical Freeze was pretty damn amazing so I don't know what he's talking about.

TekoIie107d ago

Could mean in terms of the work environment.

Sirk7x107d ago

All the major head people left after Prime 3. Lead Director of the series, art directors and designers, and lead programmers.

SenorFartCushion107d ago

Why are people writing reaction pieces to news that hasn't happened?

raptor_aktual106d ago

Because sensationalism is a huge part of Western journalism, unfortunately.

mikel1015107d ago

People are retarded to believe this stuff

ptownjbo107d ago

Uses the word retarded and get upvotes. Keep it classy N4G.

cooperdnizzle107d ago

Ehh. Most people on here are mutarue enough not to flip out about the word Retarded. I think it’s less classy to even bring it up. Triggered

BlackTar187107d ago

Trigger warning run to your safe space.

ptownjbo107d ago

Less classy to bring it up? What?

Anyway, having two kids with special needs I'm completely ok with that word making me "triggered". And I bet if you ever have a kid with down syndrome your use of the word would stop.

BlackTar187107d ago (Edited 107d ago )

Toughen up. The world is a brutal place crying over words is a complete waste of time and energy. There is no single world that should get too you or anyone as adults.

Alucard_420107d ago

I guess black respect is something you were never able to earn from people, that kind of would explain why you can't show any for this person. Yes the world is cruel doesn't give you a reason to act like that. Grow up.

Alucard_420107d ago

btw I used that word all the time, showing empathy for someone, there is nothing wrong with that what so ever.

iofhua107d ago

You get a downvote because I hate white knighting.

Alucard_420106d ago

go #^$* yourself there is the black knight in me ..I._

cooperdnizzle106d ago

People are just to sensitive. You are on a gaming website. Go push that agenda somewhere else. The last place that needs it is here. You are making a huge difference in the world. Slow clap

Alucard_420106d ago

your right and your making an ass of yourself, ever heard the saying: if you don't have anything good to say don't say anything at all? You could try to be the bigger man and walk away instead you decide to be an ass good for you dude. I don't push an agenda on nobody I call out people because I want to and they deserve it. If you are too sensitive and triggered about it go to your safe place.

BlackTar187106d ago

Alucard you know that saying is a 2 way street right........?

The world is cruel we agree woohoo. Saying someone deserves something is pretty childish way to go about things don't you think mister be a bigger man.

BlackTar187106d ago


I wish nothing but the best for you and your family. I truly mean that fromthe bottom of my heart.

That said I still think you're wrong, not in your feelings but in thinking your feelings somehow gives you moral authority over any word.

raptor_aktual106d ago

This your first day on the internet? Online gaming must be terrifying for you if you can't handle the word "retard". Grow thicker skin. And as for your kids, you do realize when people say the word "retard" they aren't referring to your children? It literally isn't personal. The world does not revolve around you and your issues. No one cares that your kids are mentally challenged. You're not under attack. Get over yourself.

raptor_aktual106d ago

By the way, getting offended over words like "retard" is a very Western-centric view of reality. There are many countries outside the West where English is not their first language and so they don't understand all the social faux pas of our language. Basically, what I'm trying to say is: Check your privilege.

@cooper I am the most mutarue person I know

iofhua107d ago

You get an upvote because I like it when people insult other people.

edeprez107d ago

Talk about jumping to conclusions... This isn't the first case of disgruntled employees taking to the internet, and it surely doesn't mean automatic studio closure. Hopefully these people get to keep their jobs, and things aren't as bad as these "journos" are insinuating.
