Author Topic: IT'S OVER - Nintendo strikes down Garry's Mod workshop  (Read 1117 times)



Nintendo has finally struck the last bastion of Mario modding.

Some of you may have noticed that certain Nintendo related workshop items have recently been taken down. This is not a mistake, the takedowns came from Nintendo.

Honestly, this is fair enough. This is Nintendo's content and what they allow and don't allow is up to them. They don't want you playing with that stuff in Garry's Mod - that's their decision, we have to respect that and take down as much as we can.

This is an ongoing process, as we have 20 years of uploads to go through. If you want to help us by deleting your Nintendo related uploads and never uploading them again, that would help us a lot.

Previously, it was claimed that the mods were being taken down by someone unrelated to Nintendo. However this seems not to be the case any longer, as the official newsletter for GMod revealed what is happening.

Allegedly it's still the same guy that keeps making the copyright claims that's always been making the copyright claims, but maybe because this just keeps happening, the devs aren't taking any chances, or just don't want to deal with it anymore and feel it's easier to just remove any and all Nintendo properties from the premise


People who seem to be in the know are saying that the devs are just falling for it, so idk what to think



nintendo is a piece of stuff company really. the first comment on that discussion says it all


the stuffty splatoon oc dupes have been eliminated... but at what cost

Anybody who actually cares has already backed up all of their nintendo/splatoon addons anyways so this really doesn't mean that much, plus there are plenty of deleted gmod addon archives for specifically this kind of reason.

I will say it's been super hilarious seeing all the "forget nintendo" reactionaries act up in the workshop in response; nothing says "stable member of society" like wanting to brutally disfigure random Japanese business men you have no true knowledge about because they (allegedly) deleted your Gardevoir OC dupe.

damn maybe centralizing the distribution of all the user-created mods for your game onto a platform where you, the developer, have full control over said distribution thus making you bear legal responsibility for their contents was not a good idea after all huh

forget WHAT WIOLKL IO DO WITHOIUT MY 2006 MAIRO RAGODLL !!??!/1 FUUUUCCCkool kids klubkool kids klubK!!!!!

I personally don't wish any bodily harm upon anyone, but lets be honest, Nintendo is a real piece of stuff these days. The switch console itself is a flop in my opinion, it could have been a way better product. It still has the potential to be, but Nintendo is so far up their own ass they can't see the light of day
