Nintendo Issues DMCA Takedowns Against "Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity" Streamers

You could say these DMCAs are causing an... Age of Calamity on Twitch.

Lame jokes aside, yeah I'm not surprised by Nintendo here. Its a real shame they don't understand the internet... I mean I only know the cliffnotes version, but didn't they also recently shutdown a bunch of Smash tournaments because they were going to use some kinda emulator with actually good netcode with rollback? - Reason for the emulator is to play Melee online since... well its kinda not possible to ask people to gather atm, and Smash Ultimate's networking is... kinda crap, even on a wired connection.

All the affected parties should launch a combined counter suit against Nintendo, it might force them to look at the way they handle DMCA.

I agree with Nintendo. The game isn't released. You have a person that is not only a pirate , but also profiting from this.

 

Consider himself lucky that Nintendo didn't take him to court.

 

This is also why one should not tell and provide proof on a public forum that you have pirated pictures, as you don't know who is the checking the forum, and you are just asking for problems.

Wait, did you even read the OP? Everyone involved owned the game and it was officially released in their time zone.

 

There was no piracy involved here, at all.

The game was released in those regions. So it was a legitimate copy of the game. Nintendo threw a fit because people in other regions were watching the streams where it had not reached the scheduled release date yet. Different timezones, different release times. It should be more Nintendo's fault for not releasing it based on a set timezone.

No, it's stupid Nintendo. They've always been anti-consumer like this.

I have been saying for years that based on their actions, Nintendo hates you and doesn't want you to be happy.  The Nintendo fanboys usually lose their minds.  There is no denying that Nintendo makes great games, they are just not even remotely consumer friendly.

Nintendo are control freaks - just like Apple.

Considering the costs of legal action in the US - Americans have no fighting chance.

Outside the US that's not a problem,I would migrate the project to a different country.

In my country suing the big guys is no problem - and i have done that once.

Just look at any half baked console they release :') The Switch is a joke and so is their online service.

Interesting take, the numbers would disagree though.

 

Nintendo have 4 out of the top 10 best selling home consoles of all time (NES, SNES, Wii & Switch), they have 6 of the top 10 best selling handheld consoles of all time (GB, GBC, GBA, DS, 3DS & Switch) and they have 4 of the top 10 overall best selling consoles of all time (GB, GBA, Wii & Switch).

Say 1 bad thing about their game and they DMCA your ass any day and goodbye streaming/youtube channel and career.

Not worth it anymore, people should band up to demand a protection law for this.

Yet another reason to not buy a Switch (after the Pokemon Company milking people buying Sword and Shield worse than EA with Fifa).

Me and my cousin wanted to buy a Switch to play co-op games like Donkey Kong and Super Mario but due to Nintendo their shitty logics and tactics, I refuse it. I boycot companies like Nintendo.

They didn't do this with the Pokemon games nor the Animal Crossing games. This leads me to believe two things:

  • Nintendo recently changed how they handle DMCA takedowns
  • Twitch's new DMCA policies are at play

Or a combination of the above two. This is really odd behavior based on recent history though

People gobbling up 1st party titles doesn't mean Nintendo's software and online services aren't garbage though, because they are. The Switch is an unfinished console with the UI and UX and oh my GOD is their online setup terrible. XBL back in 2002 was more functional! Nobody holds Nintendo to the same standard they do other companies and it boggles my mind with the garbage they'll accept.

Yeah, I agree with you on the software and online side of things 100%. Nintendo first party games though are almost always a step above everything else.

My problem is when I want to do anything to play with my friends, it's a nightmare. Nintendo shouldn't be given money or passes as much as they are.

As someone who didn't play Nintendo games during my childhood, it's impressive to me how much loyalty people can have to a company that is very clearly on the way out and is turning very violent on its death throes.

 

This is not the first time Nintendo decides to make a move that suggests they're constantly in the defensive and it makes them look desperate. That's my perspective.

What makes you think Nintendo are on their way out? They have more than enough money to survive for a long time plus a 1/3 share in the Pokemon company.

As another person who also didn’t I’m not sure at all that Nintendo is on its way out. It DOES have a different model: games for children that are well done combined with hardware that is easy to use.  There are costs for this apparently, but my understanding is the switch really pwned.  It sold very very well.  Where Nintendo did not do well here is it did a stupid with the DMCA. The company did itself zero favors here.  I’m not sure how that applies to it’s hardware though.  It is in the ditch a bit from the Wii U. The original wii did pretty good though. If their next two consoles suck though they could be in really serious trouble.  Not quite Atari or Sega trouble, but trouble.

Life is like a bowl of chocolates: there are all these little crinkly paper cups everywhere.
