Andrew Eisen Ubisoft

Those of you who closely followed the Operation Rainfall Campaign probably remember Andrew Eisen for his “Nintendo: Why won’t you let me give you my money?” video. The video was about how he could not understand why Nintendo would not let him spend his money on the three games Operation Rainfall was campaigning for. The video was straight to the point which was quite effective and thus quickly became popular.

Well this time Andrew has “a bone to pick” with Ubisoft and their latest decision of delaying the game¬†Rayman Legends and their hypocrisy for doing so¬†“for the good of all gamers”.

Check it out!

Pre-order Rayman Legends from Amazon today

  • Here’s a little behind-the-scenes blog discussing my thoughts on the delay and a few fun facts about the making of the video: http://www.ign.com/blogs/andreweisen/2013/02/11/ubisoft-delays-rayman-legends-for-the-good-of-all-gamers

    Man, who’da thunk we’d be playing Pandora’s Tower before Rayman Legends?

      Ha I didn’t think about that until you brought it up just now. It is kind of crazy when you think about it.

      IDK if you realize, or this is intentional or what but your delivery style is JUST like a professional wrestling promo. I mean that as a compliment.

    • Good God I love your vid, you did a great job of pegging it on the head. Still waiting on the last Wii game that was in your “Nintendo Why Won’t You Let Me Give You My Money” vid (I have Pandora’s Tower reserved, just waiting on Fatal Frame now) after that, I will be beyond satisfied.

  • Haha, I love this vid! It’s brilliant!

  • I love this guy. He’s the one who got me interested in Operation Rainfall in the first place.

  • I say we must rise and rage war on the hardcore gamers as Ubisoft is THEIR pawn
