It's nice to see that most of the Chris Hecker hate is pretty much gone now.


Thank goodness.  It was unnecessary to begin with, with little evidence.

He still hated on the Wii.

It's funny, now that I know what's up. Why didn't I actually look for evidence of why he chose to make it cute? I feel so stupid now. :P

It's highly uncalled for too: especially by those ho called for resignment or other extreme measures. For ww , cute doesn't equal to unadult or childish. It's kinda hard to get that out of some people. They remain stuck into a sort of post puberty schtick where sweet-ish accents are for children and signs of violence and 'long threaded gameplay' got to be the adult thing.

You'd wonder which despicable crime is being commited by 'cute" if you see all the reactions about this subject.

Ok, so design flaws were not due to Hecker...

...They are still design flaws.
Statistically, 6 out of 7 dwarves are not happy.

That's very true.  We must not forget, in forgiving ourselves for jumping to conclusions, that something somehow screwed up.
