>It's 66 minutes!
Everyone who said that the Pikmin shorts were over an hour in total is a fucking liar! I just bought the shorts, and they were less than 25 minutes in total. I am a die hard Pikmin fan, but I feel so ripped off right now. They're good, but know that your're paying $5-6 for less than an episode of The Office.
GOD DAMN YOU /v/!!!!
Because they are a support Pikmin in Pikmin 2 since they carry stuff the fastest.
I have been torn. Is $5 a bad price-point? DVDs are ~$20, usually. 25x4=100 minutes, about the length of your average animated film.
But then again, fuck spending $5 on a god damn Pikmin short holy jesus.
I think it's less about spending money to see the shorts, since you can see them online anyways, but rather giving $5 to support the Pikmin franchise.
That said, I thought the shorts were really good, and I don't regret spending my money at all.
It seems fairly priced per minute of footage, like you said. Remember that the 3 shorts come bundled for 5 dollars and reach 20 minutes together. You aren't paying 15 dollars for all three.
I'm going to buy it myself, but only because I adore the series and I really want to support it. I'd recommend checking the inevitable torrent before buying to see if it's something you'd want to support.
>Olimars smile, that Bulborb spitting out the pikmin stem.
Sorry friends, it's the only thing I can do.
I'll do it later. I promise. Just poke around for a thread tomorrow.
that fell when i'm working all day tomorrow so I probably won't catch it
I'll probably find the link on vg or in a continuation of the thread. I tried watching it earlier today when you were streaming it but it was bad then too.
Thanks though anon. You're doing the world of /v/ a favor
Goddamn these cartoons are cute as fuck.
Still not worth 5 bucks, but I kinda hope Nintendo gets into animation. I could see Nintendo going the Disney rout and becoming a multimedia powerhouse.
Honestly, those shorts look so good that I'm actually pretty eager to buy them soon.
>people on /v' knowing how video entertainment is priced
Jesus you guys really are autists
Because bad business practices are pretty much the cancer of the industry right now, I'll admit he is pretty stupid to have misinterpereted it but it doesnt' change the fact nintendo is also at fault.
I think a more reasonable price would be around 2-3 bux for them, which I'm sure they'll go on sale for at some point, but I want to support the franchise, and they all look beautifully done, so I'm fine with $5.
Nigga you think animation just spring up out the ground?
Considering these are pretty much trailers for pikmin 3 they could have definitely lowered the price since those who buy these will likely have also bought pikmin 3 or will be.
>it doesnt' change the fact nintendo is also at fault.
They were pretty clear about it, there was no misinformation or false advertising from them. OP is an idiot and so are you.
>If it means we got more trailers to spend money on I am fine with spending money on these ones
There's a bit of a flaw in your logic, if the next ones were free I could understand why you'd be alright with paying 5 dollars for this.
I didn't buy these so I don't see how I'm the idiot.
quit being a broke nigger op
Nintendo's wording was unclear and clearly mislead multiple people to think the shorts were each 20 minutes. This coupled with what the shorts actually are in my book counts as bad business practice.
>Tons of people spreading msinformation about it being 20 minutes each
It was unclear, the wording was not chosen very carefully and clearly caused confusion.
They outright stated it was 22 minutes total. There was nothing at all unclear about it. Furthermore, it's the consumer's responsibility to properly research something before they buy it, and its their own fault if they misinterpret basic information.
>>Tons of people spreading msinformation about it being 20 minutes each
Yeah but was that because they actually thought that was true? Or because they just wanted to be dicks and lie to people?
Nah, OP here. Just came back to see this hit the first page. Didn't expect that. And I enjoyed the shorts. I would have bought them anyways, because I love Pikmin, but it sucks that every post says there is actually 3x the amount of content.
Mosaic censor is for cockroaches, illegal material, genitals, and getting wrecked.
Seeing as how that isn't a roach, illegal, or a dick nor cunt, it's safe to say that dude got wrecked.
>People bitching and moaning about $5
>Same people who don't own a Wii U and wouldn't buy the movies anyway
If you're going to pirate, that means you need someone to buy the fucking things so you can pirate them first. You're not going to "win" against Nintendo either way because someone, at some point, had to give them money so YOU could "stick it to the man."
The same people who will bitch in a year and ask "Where are more cute shorts? I mean, I'm not gonna PAY for them, but I deserve them!"
New shorts starring the Pikmin 3 cast when?
>Captain Charlie in glorious HD
These shorts were great. Each one was better than the last
>That part where Olimar....
HOLY SHIT SON
Not what I was expecting Nintendo
Not what I was expecting...
>All those threads on /v/ wondering what Pikmin taste like
Ultimately, all you need to realize is that if enough of you buy this, they'll probably make a cartoon series.
The production value would be a little lower, but it would be better than any other CGI show on television at the moment.
I like how it's the first fucking thing in these shorts
Holy shit Miyamoto
Get that boys? Anon can't tell the difference in a fruit or Pikmin
amazing what people who actually have a passion about their product can accomplish
unlike other directors that are more interested in pumping out money printers instead of a competently put together product.
I will spoil myself anymore. Tomorrow I will try to set up my Wii U internet connection at my university.
Wish me luck everyone.
i'm going to try and get my 3ds repaired.
gonna call nintendo and see what can be done.
the fucking thing just melted on me when it was charging
and i am outside of the warranty
Universities hate game consoles. I did everything I could and still could never get my PS4 or Wii U to work, just the Xbox 360. Wi-fi used a stupid system that wouldn't work for them and the fuckton fast wired connection was denied to me whenever I tried to register MAC addresses since they always failed to stick.
I'd say they're about worth it. Plus I want to support future content like this getting made. The pikpik carrot one was unnecessary, and that minute 30 should have gone to one of the other two shorts.
>Post-Toy Story 3 Pixar
>Better than modern Dreamworks or Disney Studios
Plus Dreamworks has always outclassed both in terms of visuals.
They could just stick with the current studio, but I guess it lacks pedigree.
Well I was going to say Disney-Pixar but after considering what you just said honestly I think disney could do a pretty good job
I'm also not a real big fan of anything dreamworks produces so I'm pretty biased
These shorts are so cute.
They fill me with a sweet sense of togetherness and community.
>mfw the Pikmin start crying as the Bulborb gets closer and closer
Shit was too real
I believe these shorts represent certain races in a negative way and perpetuate stereotypes. I for one would recommend them being taken down and production on any more halted.
You wonder why you're discriminated against when you sleep 24/7, expecting sustenance to walk into your mouth.
>having to move around to get food
What a waste of energy, serious pleb.
you're just jelly you can't walk around
This at least looks good. He's also got an animation studio to do it and not taken workers away from video games.
It's not like Wii Music which will have taken a team to make that could have been making a not shit game.
maybe if you did some walking you wouldn't have got your ass beat like a little bitch
>Problem solving skills
Fuck no you stupid shit. I'm offended by how fucking dumb your comment is. Please for the love of god learn what it means to have problem solving skills.
Very late reply so I doubt you're still around but for anyone else that wants download it, I managed with ffmpeg using the following:
ffmpeg -re -i http://edge.bf.hitbox.tv/static/videos/vods/yoshinator/862b8d4c66282458cc3bddf12d0ed3cfd82f164e-545ada1cf1521/yoshinator/index.m3u8 -c copy output.ts
Haven't watched it yet but a quick click through and it appears to be fine.
