Nintendo Takes Down StarFox Fan Film

Not the first project to get nixed by Nintendo, Metroid Fan Film Shutdown by nintendo http://www.screwattack.com/news/nintendo%E2%80%99s-legal-team-puts-end-metroid-fan-film-kickstarter I have witnessed a lot of stupid responses to things such as the power rangers bootleg fan film and recently the starfox animated parody that was recently snubbed by nintendo. Things are still on track and the names have since been changed which nintendo seems to be fine with, however it just feeds into my negative feelings towards japanese game companies and their practices. This video is a response to how it seems that they don't care about what fans want, will keep shoveling the same shit and beat that dead horse until it's just a pool of chunky red waste on the bat. It just confuses me to see a company like nintendo, koonami, and sega just have the bottom line in mind and not realize when it comes to entertainment products, it is a symbiotic relationship between customer and supplier. We give you money to provide us entertainment, a service. We may like your service so much that we will praise it with fan art, films, music, and even fan made games. Aside from making limited prints of non-parody art pieces there is really no room for shinanigans like shutting down tributes to our beloved entertainment unless of course, that musician starts selling cds of non-remixed music covers, fan games, or movies. Imagine if Sega or capcom sued over the fan films Blue Core made of megaman or sonic. Or nintendo over this starfox parody. It seems people are starting to be soured by these companies. Koonami is off making gambling machines of Silent Hill, Sega couldn't even successfully reinvent sonic, and Nintendo's wii-u will probably be dead in a year or less. Maybe they can start paying attention to their fan base a little more, unfortunately for them they seem to ignore the fact that the bulk of their market that keeps them a float is outside of their island.

  1. Disgusting! Especially Capcom with the resident evil film haggling! You hit it right on the head and I'd be shocked if many of the above mentioned will still be afloat in the next decade or a mere memory. With Nintendo's remaster of Starfox 64 (I think for the DS?) Just shows (to me anyway) that they're desperate and out of ideas. So I stead of spending funds on hiring a dame good writer, no, they spend funds on getting legal representation toward someone who couldn't even begin to take them on.

    Sorry for the rant. At least the project will continue on, it still bites that all the voice acting will have to be redone for for the sake of putting in the new names being used :/

    1. Nah no matter what nintendo does or say he doesnt need to change anything. There may have not been a choice when it came to the aetron but they do not ave anything. Robot chicken for instane does not get permission from pwners pf the characters they pprtray, cause they dont need to. Fair use laws apply here and its only youtube that has this exploitable flaw videowise. Nintendo wouldnt spend the money to build a legal case unless he was making millions selling digital downloads and merchandise.
