    Can honestly say you guys are absolutely right about the whole streaming thing is good publicity for a game. Without you I wouldn't have known about SkyFactory. I've been playing it every day since!

    I love you guys, but you can be incredibly condescending and annoying sometimes.  This is not me saying Nintendo is right with their policy, but this really is a cultural difference.  Nintendo is a Japanese company, not American, and in Japan, when someone makes something for you (a piece of art, a meal, even a game) they know how you should experience it.  If someone puts some good sushi in front of me and tells me to eat it with my hands, picking up a fork would be a massive insult.  Same goes for games.  By playing a game in a way other than the creator intended, you are insulting the creator.  I'm not asking that you be ok with that attitude, just understanding of it.


    Now, that attitude just doesn't exist over here.  We buy something, we expect to be able to do whatever we want with it.  In summary, you could have had a really cool and funny conversation about this, but instead we got a bunch of adults whining that they didn't get exactly what they want from a company who had every legal right to do what they did.  Still watched the episode, because, seriously, Achievement Hunter is easily my favorite group.  But there is a vitriolic blind spot when it comes to anything Nintendo.

      If you purchase something it becomes yours to do with as you wish. Nintendo isn't giving anything to anyone, they're mass producing a product for consumer consumption and their archaic approach to the video game industry is why they're pushing nostalgia to remain relevant as opposed to continuously innovating like Sony and Microsoft.

      It's more than that. Nintendo is essentially damaging careers that make money off of streaming their content.

      They are simply stating Nintendo, as a company, is being stupid like usual.

      @shrapneezy That's not true at all, the game company owns the game. When you buy a game you are essentially leasing the game, you do not own it and technically can not do with it as you please. This is copyright and trademark stuff which every company has the ability to take advantage of if they so wish.

    Games I have bought because of AH: Minecraft, Mass Effect 2, Far Cry 3, Left 4 Dead, Rainbow Six Siege and countless others. Streaming does nothing but positive things for the gaming industry.

    I don't know why, but I really wanted Jack to flip that puzzle Geoff walked away. That would have been amazing.

    I have to throw my vote onto the pile from those below. I have purchased games because of people just plain having fun with the game. Purchased. That's money in devs' and distributors' pockets because of people playing games and showing others that they enjoy it.


    If Nintendo is afraid that they'll lose revenue because someone might show how they don't enjoy one of their games, they need to consider the fact that people who are Negative Nancys get low viewership of people who are likely to hate a game anyway - not the target audience in the first place - and the people who have fun like to show only the games where they have fun - positive advertising with effectively no negative advertising to people who are interested in the games. The benefits outweigh any risk.


    These tactics of Nintendo makes me wonder if they're worried that more people will neg their games rather than promote them. I'm inclined to think that only people who would have no qualms selling crummy games to people would think like that - expecting people to be unhappy with their games and don't want others to know it before buying them. That is negative advertising right there - giving me reason to believe that you don't want me to see how bad something is. Think about it, Nintendo.

    Hi. My name is Dennis and I bought Minecraft on PC and downloaded Sky Factory because of them. I have over 400 hours accrued and have a stack of max stat eggs for all 85 chickens. This is the Sky Factory help group, right? And I have two skeleton horses.

    Extra Life 2017: rent a car, fill each seat with a person, fill the car with fart bags, last person out wins... I don't know, something enticing. There's always a medic around, I'm sure it'd be fine xD

    Yep, definitely started playing Skyfactory 3 because of you guys. And Jack's Twitch streams. We'll see if Nintendo's neurotic ideas will pay off in the long run...

    I was half expecting Jack to flip it at the end, because, screw it, that would've been hilarious after all that.


    Also, I totally bought Recore because of seeing it on an Achievement Hunter Let's Play. The streamers' advertizing works. But, as they suggested, Nintendo's more concerned with maintaining their approachable brand than advertizing via streamers. Which, to be perfectly honest, I kinda have to respect that level of conviction in today's business world. I don't agree with it, and it's probably the wrong move, but that silly kind of alternative thinking is what's made them the Nintendo they are.

      It's vaguely reminiscent of the movie/music industries and their feeble struggles against piracy and the internet. They're just shooting themselves in the foot if they think LESS exposure means more money.

      While I do enjoy some newer Nintendo games, it's becoming more and more obvious that their best years are well behind them, and they're mostly just surviving on the popularity they built up over those years. Moves like this just kind of show that they have no problem with that, even if it will slowly kill the company in the long run. It probably won't be until those of us that grew up with earlier Nintendo start to die out however, since they bank so heavily on that nostalgia and rereleasing......

    I bought a lot of games because the AH guys played them. Minecraft, 7 days, Destiny, etc. And I love Nintendo, it was my childhood but c'mon, guys, it's 2017, get with the times. Do you want to go back to making and selling cards again like you did in 1889?

      Right? The puzzle is already gonna be sold on ExtraLife, what's it matter if it's flipped now or later? Plus, Geoff is a national treasure. Let him flip it!

    Jack is right. I watched Game Attack play through Super Metroid, and then I bought the entire Metroid series (sans Federation Force, Prime Hunters, and Other M). It works.
