Is anybody else getting tired of this guy? You know who else is?
The man, the myth, the legend! I’m not digging this Eddie guy’s style so I did a little backdooring (it’s a word get over it) of my own. Time for some quality updates!
First and foremost, Mr. Eduade Despard, you’re sort of a dick. Secondly I heard you got knocked out by the same IT guy that is too afraid to sit under candles in the Great Hall. That’s sad dude. No wonder you had to take over this blog to feel like a tough guy again….
Well surprise buddy, this time you’re being beaten by a 6th year student using the internet browser on a Nintendo 3DS. I have a laptop, but I used my handheld instead just to rub in the fact that I can. Your move jerk.
Like, seriously, here’s the thing. It literally doesn’t matter to what extent a character being a trans woman is canon or not.
Linkle has no direct “evidence” to support her being trans, other than being a “gender-swapped” (ugh I hate that term) version of Link. So people fight me about it.
Samus Aran has some direct “evidence” that she’s trans - a developer comment in particular. And people will fight tooth and nail to “prove” that this bit of “evidence” is irrelevant.
Grell Sutcliffe has literally been confirmed as trans by the creator of the series. And yet people outright refuse to acknowledge it, considering anything less than the fictional character saying the exact words “I am a trans woman” to not actually be canon.
People don’t care. They will do everything in their power to ignore the presence of trans women in the media they love. So why the hell should I have to wait for Nintendo to decree a character as trans (which they will, in all likelihood, never ever do) to consider it the truth? Why should I have to label every character I consider trans as a “headcanon” when there is no more evidence in the media itself to suggest cissness than there is transness?
Don’t worry, Robin, it will all work out. Well, maybe.
I hope nobody is offended by the use of “screwed”. I understand that some people view it as a legitimate curse word, while others do not. I had originally planned on using “doomed”, but I didn’t feel that it had the same effect. Besides, Lucina does seem like the type to have a coarser vocabulary, don’t you think?
this war and seed thing actually sounds like a very esoteric dream. Like i aint no witch, but seed and war can be linked to life and death maybe? and the fact that it was replacing the words male and female maybe also have a meaning?
Maybe but I think you’re giving my subconscious too much credit since there was another part where the nintendo switch controller was a piano keyboard and you had to play different notes instead of buttons
This game… I can’t even put into words how beautiful it is. Every time I boot it up I find something new and marvelous. This is the first time in forever I have sacrificed sleep to play a game in a very long time. Even my lets plays do it not justice. I just wish to capture as much of this game as I can and spread it so others can see. But the only way to truely appreciate the game is to play it.
I have a few regrets in life.One of them is that I have already made a comic that pokes fun at Shadow. If I could, I would definitely do it more often because..well, Shadow is just the perfect character to make jokes about. But that would get old, wouldn’t it?
Also, I’d like to give a shout-out to @philthevaliant-stuff. Thank you for the kind words! I remember watching your Ed Edd n Eddy fan film way back when.
And now, I have just one question for you guys. I’ve thought about this for a while, and I guess now is as good a time as any to ask. Would any of you be interested in Omega Mode t-shirts or something?
I think the whole Nintendo v.s. fangame thing could be exlained by just two words. Mario Maker. They love fan creativity.... when they get to curate it.
I mean, that’s generally the heart of everything, right. What’s the #1 thing businesses always want more of? Control. They don’t want you to be able to copy VHS tapes, or DVD movies, or share music with your friends, or share games with your friends, or have any kind of second-hand market whatsoever.
They want you to be a good little consumer and funnel your bank account in to their money hole.
It’s only when consumers push back, and push back really hard, that we end up with anything reasonable at all. Otherwise, these companies would run roughshod over everyone.
More control means more money. And there are two things Nintendo is very good at: making money and saving money.
Words from a member of the Fire Emblem If Translation Team
DISCLAIMER: This is solely my views and mine alone. I’m not speaking for anyone else on the team.
I really hate it when people assume I was a member of the translation team for FE14 because I have a burning hatred of the localization. I’ve gotten this on a few PMs in many places and comments on my Youtube channel.
Like… they’re trying to sound like “Hey, I like your work and I agree they did a shitty job! Keep doing what you do! Let Nintendo and Treehouse know that they suck and that a bunch of fans can do better!”
…it insults me.
It’s a labor of love for the game. The closest other people can experience the original without being in actual Japanese. I, personally, just wanted to have fun using my language skills to help a project to let people experience that.
Not to make a competing product used as a weapon by people in their crusade against the “censorship corporate agenda”.
It feels disrespectful to the translator and the hacker in me.
I have problems with the localization… but I also have problems with the JP version. I hate that people are putting words in my mouth… people putting an association with “member of a fanslation patch team” and “you must hate the localization”.
You’re using work from my love to fuel your hate.
That compliment you’re trying to give me is the highest, most offending insult you can give me as a person who speaks Japanese, as a person that deconstructs computer logic and code for a living, and as a Fire Emblem fan.
Eloise (Legend of Legacy)
Been playing the demo recently. I have not been drawing chibis for a while. I’m liking her and the Frog prince so far. Might draw him next.
In terms of gameplay, I don’t think it’s for everyone. This reminds me vaguely of the old saga frontier games, which I adored. My only gripe is that Owen’s dialogue could be more.. gruff. I think his usage of the word clowns seems a little out of character.
NINTENDO: “Hey, there’s a touch-based relationship builder in thre new Fire emblem game, since the Pokemon Amie worked out so well, and we figured we’d try to see how similar AR interaction minigames worked with the audiences!”
Tumblr: “Ew how creepy, I don’t want to pet these anime characters, nintendo has sunk to a new low, I can’t believe this weird hentai shit”
NINTENDO: “Okaaaay… since the announcement doesn’t seem to have gone over well with western and/or primarily english speaking sitesand reviewers, we’ll remove the interaction system from wester releases to hopefully im[prove how you view our game.”
Tumblr: “God, go figure. Look at this meaningless censorship of media. Us westerners are too sensitive right? God this reminds me of some overly dramatic historical event that has little to nothing in relevance to what currently happened, unless I twist the words just right to make nintendo sound like nazis for doing this.”
In a statement issued to IGN, Shigeru Miyamoto has said the following:
“I am surprised at this sudden news and overcome with sadness. The entire development team at Nintendo will remain committed to our development policy which Mr. Iwata and we have been constructing together and to yield the development results which Mr. Iwata would appreciate.”
Until a new president and CEO for Nintendo is chosen, Miyamoto and longtime Nintendo developer and general hardware manager Genyo Takeda will be acting Representative Directors of Nintendo.
The president of Nintendo of Europe, Satoru Shibata, also spoke on his colleague’s death, saying: “It is difficult to put into words the sadness we feel at this time. Mr. Iwata was a strong leader, a unique figure in the gaming industry and an important part of Nintendo’s history. He was a visionary in every sense of the word and we will miss him dearly."Just as Mr. Iwata challenged us to always push forward, we will ensure his legacy lives on through our ongoing work to always surprise and delight our fans. At this time our thoughts are with his family.”
UPDATE: Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aime has also issued a statement: "Mr. Iwata is gone, but it will be years before his impact on both Nintendo and the full video game industry will be fully appreciated. He was a strong leader for our company, and his attributes were clear to most everyone: Intelligence, creativity, curiosity and sense of humor. But for those of us fortunate enough to work closely with him, what will be remembered most were his mentorship and, especially, his friendship. He was a wonderful man. He always challenged us to push forward…to try the new…to upset paradigms—and most of all, to engage, excite and endear our fans. That work will continue uninterrupted.“
