@video_game_king: they've opted out of stage shows, replacing them with Nintendo Directs. However they've always had a huge presence on the show floor.

Doesn't a gay couple bring sex into a game, where a straight couple doesn't? Parents don't question how they have to explain to a kid seeing a man and woman together, but a common reason I hear for not having gay couples in public is that straight parents have to explain what's going on there. I'd guess that a sexual situation involving whatever group would be treated as a sexual situation by the raters, but just having a gay couple not even having sex might be called a sexual situation in the ratings, just because it's not a common enough experience to most people right now to not bring up sex.

No. You explain it by saying "Know how most guys like girls and most girls like guys? Well some guys like guys instead and some girls like girls instead." That is literally the extent of the explanation needed. And unless the kid in-question already has a basic understanding of what sex is, it's not going to make a difference to them one way or another.

Holy shit, that Samantha Allen article.

"Behind all the corporate jargon and flowery public-relations language lies hatred, pure and simple."

There's a difference between criticizing a very poor statement by Nintendo and outright slashing at someone's jugular while decrying that they're the devil. This is a fucking ridiculous overreach.

“At a local convention, while we were presenting our game, there was a creepy guy watching us. He offered help on opening our ‘sixth’ sense, to gain the ability to see djinn and supernatural beings in order to get an accurate version for our game ghost designs. Naturally, we refused the offer politely.”

... an internal division responsible for some of the company’s most groundbreaking games, including... F-Zero, and others.

I wonder if they'll ever make one of those again. Just reading this made me kinda sad.

As much as people ask for Metroid or F-Zero, those games don't sell nearly as well as people think they do.

This MIGHT just make me pick up a Wii U. What's the controller situation on that system? I understand that the tablet thing will probably be fine for controlling, but no way in hell am I using a wii remote.

WiiU Gamepad feels good, IMO. However, the Pro Controller will be great for Smash.
