Maybe im just behind the times cuz Im just learning about this, but it blows my mind. Cant believe it all really got that far.

Screw this dickhead. He got what he deserves.

N311V4355d ago

All I can say is OMG, hope he falls very hard.

pangitkqb4354d ago

Me too. I mean, apparently his family has been targeted and that isn't cool, but he individually deserves all the public grief he is getting. The hope, of course, being that he uses this as a lesson in treating others well in the future.

It's crazy that things got that far. Sure he's an idiot, but no one deserves that.

@ scottis
He gets what he deserves. Act like a jackwagon, get treated like one.

AtomicGerbil4354d ago (Edited 4354d ago )

The guy doesn't deserve to be in business and from more recent interviews shows that he really hasn't learnt a valuable lesson, but to threaten his family is a step too far.

Agreed. His family shouldn't be held responsible for him being such a d***.

The Xbox controller looks better, logo is less intrusive.

Hmph, you were lucky enough to be playing games with a yorkshire tea controller!

Back in my day we only had rectangular controllers that would give you blisters and wear your thumbs down to a nub!

"The profit of these tournaments is directly impacted by these new rules, as sponsorships are being forbidden, maximum prize money is limited to $5,000, and food/drinks can’t be sold at the tournaments."

Why even bother.

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.
