I'm pretty sure I've bought two copies of Zip Lash, making me responsible for 50% of its sales.

Okay, fuck this.

I have always been quite clear that UbiSoft and ActiBlizz's games are out of bounds to me until they show some serious signs of cleaning up their grubby sordid acts. Neither has shown any, of course. Now Nintendo is doing the same thing. Nintendo of America, specifically - but if they don't clean up their act, doesn't it mean that Nintendo of Japan doesn't care enough to make them to? No, if I'm to hold Nintendo to the same standard I hold the others to, I shouldn't be buying any Nintendo machine and/or game until there's those serious signs we haven't seen from Ubi and Acti.

I don't know if I can do that. Nintendo is my gaming life. I've owned every Nintendo machine since the 64 at launch, bubbling with excitement. For sure I'll yell to the heavens about this, and how nobody should forget; but I don't know if I can be as strict with Nintendo games as I should be for something as reprehensible as letting this go unchecked.

Maybe it won't I guess. Doug doesn't seem to have been in charge for the worst of it (looking at you Reggie), but to understate significantly, I don't feel like internal corporate investigations have the greatest of track records when it's a culture that needs to change. In the meanwhile, I've done the only thing I could think of and contacted Nintendo with this. I'd suggest you all do that (it took me three minutes), and if you have any better suggestions of means of contact to use, please let me know.

Still though, it may be a poor choice of words but: fuck this. Really and truly.

I see your point, but there are big differences between this and the likes of Ubi and Activision. I'd have to have a more serious conversation with myself if it were a top-to-bottom cultural thing at Nintendo. At the scale it currently is, and with more positive stories about the workplace culture in the main Kyoto office these days, I don't feel I need to boycott or anything.

But I'm also well aware that I'm compromised on this one.

Guess it's how Nintendo handles it, now more than anything.

It's exactly that. Buska's right, so far we've only had a bit revealed in an office that isn't the main one... but what if the main one does nothing? That's tacit acceptance. That's what worries me. I think that awful Nintendo of Russia bloke still works there, for example.

Yeah, it is, but also society at large has given tacit acceptance to . . .

Picking my battles just gets harder and harder when there is no good path other than living alone in the mountains growing my own crops.

I know, I know. For me the line should be easy: it's drawn just before sexual assault. This being Nintendo is going to smudge up that line something horrible.

I'd feel differently if we heard Koizumi and Shigsy were up to it, or that it was absolutely rampant at every level of the company and they strung us along with no actions for more than a year. At this stage, though, it feels isolated and I have a small sliver of stupid optimism that action will be taken.

Alas, it feels like every company and institution in America is just hell . . . watching an empire collapse in real time is miserable.
