How Evil Are You?
Your Result: More or Less
You're a pretty even steven person. You can be a sweet as sugar sometimes, and others your can raise Caine in any situation. Maybe you've got some weirdo disease. A word to the wise. Stay on the good side.
MMD3-More gimmick oriented, but still stupidly hard. Not trying "too hard" to make it too hard, for the most part. An actual ending is planned. Taking a break rn
Some brutal honesty and a summary of my reservations:
If finding a ROM to play hacks in the first place becomes as cumbersome as playing Kaizo hard hacks due to Nintendo taking action against sites that post ROMs, that is a major demotivator because if some people have a hard time finding ROMs and we're not allowed to link them, then will the effort we put into our hacks be for naught? Sure, this site doesn't host ROMs, but at least 99% of us have to download ROMs (which I'm pretty sure is a form of piracy) to get started, and for that to happen, some volunteers somewhere have to upload them, with the risk of Nintendo taking action. We can't link ROMs yet we're fine with people uploading to ROM sites, which is also illegal.
And the argument that “it's an old game and they're no longer making money from it” falls flat when it's still being sold on the Virtual Console and soon enough, on the SNES classic. Writing a fanfiction does not require you to download a book and modify its contents. It just feels kinda unnatural to take up a hobby where one of the crucial steps to get started involves committing piracy of a game that Nintendo is still making any amount of money from.
But if I feel this way, then why do I not cease and desist right now? Maybe something to do with bandwagon and creativity as well as this site's surprising longevity. And also MMD3's true final stage having its own ending scene where even if I wanted to make another (Kaizo-hard) hack, that there would be no logical basis, so it would be a form of closure.
If only SMW had a Steam release with official mod support. The there would be no need to have to rely on sketchy downloads and we'd actually be able to link to the official download. Kinda like with Half-Life and Half-Life mods.
