    Has anyone notice a lot of the transaltion project games we have here somehow gets ported from japan to america like 2 months later or 1 month prior to a patch release we have? I don't know... I noticed TWEWY was ported after we patched "it's a wonderful world" and now as YS is almost complete... USA is getting it... anyone else finds this suspicious?

    I dont think they are. I KNOW that they are.

    Big corps that produce any media have, undoubtedly, taken to hiring people who surf the web looking for those who are pirating their stuff. Thats why YouTube-type sites for media take down  videos alot--they could/can be sued for allowing it to remain there.

    By the same token, Nintendo has people keep tabs on the PRO-Nintendo/Fansites and stuff, they keep their eyes out for forming trends and things.

    this

    although, they obviously aren't too keen on taking much advice from hardcore gamers, i.e. Nintendo wi-fi, old games people want revived, stuff about Brawl that should not have been in there but is

    I believe there are some people watching us from Nintendo or they have been on the site. This is a big community so I wouldn't doubt it at all.

    I don't doubt that some Nintendo representatives are watching GBAtemp. After all, this is one of the biggest (if not THE biggest) online gaming communities.

    However, you basing this theory on those two translations is just plain dumb. TWEWY was gonna get an NA release regardless, and the translation barely covered anything.

    Same with the YsDS translation. They haven't even released a patch yet, and they're still working on JUST the first book. You'd think if Nintendo was really out to screw translators over, they would localize Soma Bringer, Tales of Innocence, etc.

    Maybe they are whaching us, luckly we can't name torrent/ROM sites so Nintendo can't find them easier.
    Take that Nintendo, following the rules let's us break a rule.

    Take a look at darth's soma bringer patch.They've planned an english released by this year, which means that they will use darth's patch so obviously they are spying.

    well, most big corps employ people specifically to browse fan sites, so I am pretty sure they are keeping an eye on here.

    as I have said before, nintendo really don't care about pirates as long as it doesn't go "mainstream". hell, the pirates here are probably the biggest nintendo fanboys

    This time of the month huh?

    While the thread probably should have ended with gizmo_gal I would have to say as much as I would like to be walking down the street one day and suddenly find myself staring down a Nintendo black ops team/lawyer I doubt they care all that much.

    A more interesting question perhaps is what is being done "off the books" (more legal than stuff like ddos-ing something) to undermine certain sites, while I would like to reaffirm my faith in humanity by saying they are largely responsible for the idiot quota my general experiences elsewhere would go against such an assertion.

    Just in case some Nintendo rep is watching:

    Nintendo, you are STUPID! You have no 2D Metroid on the DS.


    I'm sure that now they will rush one out for us soon. [​IMG]

    Mmm, if Nintendo was honestly watching us, wouldn't they be filing action against every flashcard maker, not just the defunct R4? Not to say that they can shut us down--oh they can. For any reason too. I mean, do we have a team of crack lawyers and plenty of money to go through a long lawsuit process? Who cares if they "can't do that"? We're already on questionably legal grounds as it is, and we're just a tiny website going against a massive corporation. Not the best of battle situations, no?

    So yeah, I'm pretty sure they don't give a rat's ass about us. And if they really cared about wanting to squash translation projects with their own, Nintendo could have easily shut down the Mother 3 translation. Cease and Desist, baby.
