RIP Robin Williams (1951-2014)

Robin Williams (1951-2014) Robin Williams was an absolutely exceptional comedian, talented actor, and holder of a special place in video game history: He was the first really famous gamer I know of. I’m sure there were others, but they kept a comparatively low profile, unlike one...

DAILY MANIFESTO

Hideki Kamiya vs. Kotaku

Posted on Wednesday, January 9 @ 12:55:55 Eastern by

Hideki Kamiya is fucking pissed, and that's putting it lightly.

What could have been just an article written by Kotaku's Richard Eisenbeis examining the general Japanese view on PC gaming and Steam was slanted by the sensational headline: "The Guy Who Made Bayonetta Is Clueless About About Valve and PC Gaming".

Anyone who follows Kamiya on Twitter knows that he's a bold, outspoken developer who doesn't mince words doesn't give a fuck. Just like Platinum Games, really. So being that "guy," he decided to take matter in his own hands by calling Kotaku "douchebags" outright on Twitter.

That's just the beginning of a multi-hit combo:


 

 
We all know, especially at Game Revolution, about the prevalence of click-grabbing headlines in video game journalism. Gettings hits through controversial or opinionated titles is part of the business, but that sometimes mars the integrity of a piece, no matter how well-founded it may be.

That said, calling a developer "clueless" about Valve when that same developer visited Valve several months ago and was quoted on it on Polygon is... not a good idea.

Since then, Kotaku has changed the title of the article to "The Guy Who Made Bayonetta Is Not Interested In Valve and PC Gaming. That’s Common In Japan." Unforunately, the article's original name can be found in the URL because it's already been catalogued as such in search engines. Only the more reason to get the title right the first time.

And now, a picture of Kamiya during his college years:
