Comic 45: Youtube Creators Program

So after reading some recent news (mainly shared by a friend), I decided to do a comic about this subject. Yeah, it was announced some months ago but I recently remembered it again and got this idea, so yeah.

(Also, "free advertisement" aside, I can kind of understand a creator wanting part of the profits for videos mainly containing their work... I do have several complaints about the Creators Program, though.)

The sound of Nintendo plodding backwards two steps, usually heard when they attempt to go forward one step.

Again breaking my "reply to other people's comments" silence:


Nintendo, on the whole, has made some serious blunders. Of course, so have most companies, hence Zanreo can give us this wonderful comic! :)

Yeah, true! Thanks!

by Zanreo at 10th Apr 2015, 1:16 PM

True... Just because Nintendo's one of my favorite companies doesn't mean they're above critizism.

That is why you are so cool.
You should pass that influence to others as well.

The whole "it is OK when Nintendo does it" thing is sometimes getting on my nerves.
Heck! I should submit that as a question for the next Q&A :D

I have seen comments, terrible comments, from people blindly supporting or even requesting more stricter program to "help" Nintendo.
YT has never hurt them. Dammit, I have bought more games because of it.

by Zanreo at 10th Apr 2015, 9:25 PM

Yeah... I do have my doubts about that creator's program... And some people want an even STRICTER ONE? What?

Also, thanks!

Some discussions are like:
"Everything to Nintendo! Everything to Nintendo!"
I think you get the point and meaning.

by Zanreo at 10th Apr 2015, 10:29 PM

Yeah, they used to take all the money, which was not a good thing at all... at least the creators program split is an improvement, but it's still very flawed

After playing Xenoblade Chronicles 3D, and seeing how Nintendo made a brand new 3DS mainly to get this game into the hands of more people, I'm feeling a bit more goodwill towards Nintendo today.

by Zanreo at 11th Apr 2015, 5:03 AM

Still have to get a new 3DS, but Xenoblade does look pretty cool. Might have to get one at some point...

Oh Nintendo XD
I hadn't heard about this one, but it's really interesting. Cool how what would be very annoying in real life becomes comedically charming here.

by Zanreo at 10th Apr 2015, 1:15 PM

Yeah, that's the thing with characters like this - what's otherwise annoying suddenly becomes more of a silly charming joke. But yeah, this does sound kinda annoying for the people it affects

It’s dead! People can now upload Nintendo videos!
