>Mexico is the only Latin American country with their own official Club Nintendo magazine

>Mexicans got a Nintendo show called Nintendomania

>Mexico is the only Latam country with access to e-shop

>Mexicans got Mexican voice acting for Breath of the Wild

>Mexican Mario

>Nintendo do events with playable titles at shopping malls

How come Mexico was the only Latin American country that grew with Nintendo unlike South American countries that grew with Sega/Sony?
>>
In Chile, the Club Nintendo magazine got edited here until the gamecube era.
Chile also had it's own version of Nintendomania (I think there was also one for Sega stuff).
>>
>>4483127
As far as I know, Club Nintendo was the same for ever Latin American country

Argie here, we also got the Club Nintendo magazine here. From what I've gathered, the south american CN was a cut version of the Mexican original though.
But it was still a fine magazine.
Argentina also had Nivel X which from 1997 until 2006 was one of the most famous vidya TV shows and aired in other countries of latin america as well. Nivel X had official sponsorship from Nintendo.
Yeah, Mexico always received better special treatment due to being close to USA, but I know Argentina, Chile, Peru and other countries had official Nintendo presence in the 90s too.
>>
Well Mexico is part of North America which NOA is in charge of not to mention there's also the benefit of NAFTA helped get consoles and games out and since Mexico was the first latam country that Nintendo dwelled into it also got special treatment and because of that had a bigger fanbase.

Even still, Nintendo lost a lot of fans because of how expensive it was and for a while abandoned the region and left it to rot like the rest of south america but they're mostly back in full swing.

In general Mexican Spanish was always used for most dubbing of tv shows and cartoons in all of latin america, it's only recent that dubs come from other countries that isn't Mexico. Hell even shows and comics and media from Mexico are more well known across all of latam and around the world.

There was some countries where Club Nintendo got edited for the people of that country as far as I know.
I think it was until 2001 where we started getting the original Mexican version.
>>4483231
Venezuela made a lot of dubs back then too, they're still the ones getting most of WB/DC's stuff.
Chile, Argentina and Colombia were also making dubs back then, yeah, Mexico has the dubbing emporium, but other countries also had their jobs on it.

Brazil had Nintendo Power Magazine, though, not Club Nintendo.

Because it's in north america, close enough to the us that the nintendo effect bled over the frontier. Every other country was too far away to be infected by the nintendo bug, which allowed Sega to shine.

>>4483628
Sega didn't dominate Mexico

As a Spanish I always found it interesting how Latin Americans seem more knowledgeable on video games in general, but particularly retro games, than people from my country.
>>
>>4483694
Understandable, given that they live 20 years behind most developed countries.
>>
>>4483737
But it's not like Latin American countries are that developed. I think it's something related to culture; most of the guys I know that are into retro games here are immigrants from these countries (Chile, Bolivia...).
>>
>>4483737
Sorry, I misunderstood you here >>4483737
But still, I see people that came here when they were little children and got into video games in Spain and still have a higher appreciation for retro stuff and more knowledge than fellow Spaniards.

Nope, my first Club Nintendo had Kirby 64 in the cover and it was already the "mexican" version. That was around June/July 2000.

I think chileans stopped editing it at some point in 1999.
>>
>>4483743
That goes for anime too. Japan had a pretty strong presence here in Mexico in the 80s and 90s.
>>
>>4483927
Yes, I've noticed the same for anime but I didn't mention it since this is for games, you know.
Still, anime has had a presence in Spain for a while, it's just that the younger anime fans just watch the latest stuff online (and only play the latest F2P games) while Latin Americans usually go beyond that.

Mexico did some really good anime dubs back then, and most of them weren't edited or censored heavily (Sailor Moon and Digimon are examples of this, Latin America got the original Japanese version with small differences like changing names, while the USA version seems like a DiC cartoon).
In Chile, we had a channel completely dedicated to Anime (ETC... Tv) that's still running along with some open TV channels having their own Anime blocks back then, and I'm not even adding stuff like Locomotion or Animax.
>>4483694
I guess the nostalgia bubble is stronger in Latin America.

Not just nostalgia, but also playing older games they hadn't played back then. Chile is probably the #1 country in this regard from what I've noticed.

>>4484025
Well, considering retro collecting (and sadly, resellers) are a thing now, and emulation being much easier nowadays, is not a surprise.
Chile also has a hard-on for fighting games, mainly SF2CE and MK2/UMK3
>>
>>4484148
Interesting to see how living in a poorer country has made you guys evade the degradation of the industry and thus getting some perspective.

I was lucky since my father was huge into arcade games (they used to be popular in Spain before "la play"), particularly Capcom stuff (favorite games of his were Vulgus and later SFII) so I avoided becoming a complete spanitard consuming only LoL nowadays.
>>
>>4484167
Young spaniards can also emulate but they usually don't give a shit and play LoL only.
>>
>>4484167
To be honest, every Latin American country had hard ons for fighting games, specially Mexico with KOF games

Honestly, I don't see why Chileans are posting about gaming habits in their country when they weren't that different from the rest of South America
>>
>>4484182
I'm the guy from Spain and I've noticed Chileans being even more dedicated to this hobby than the others, though I could be wrong and just my personal experience from dealing with immigrants and some guys online.
>>
>>4484185
Many Latin Americans are very dedicated to this hobby, actually.
>>
I find funny how Nintendo totally forgot about South America nowadays

They abandoned Brazil. South Americans don't have access to the e-shop and consoles are prohibitive there

Mexico is the only market that Nintendo cares about
>>
>>4484189
I know, I'm just saying I'm curious as to how more dedicated they are than folks from my country.
>>
>>4484193
Nintendo left here because our taxes over production and sales are freaking abusive.
>>
>>4484182
I know about that, Argentina & Brazil also loves fighting games.
I'm not saying Chile is unique regarding this subject anyways, just pointing that atleast this country also had a Nintendo influence (even if the Sony one was much bigger thanks to piracy).
>>
>>4483118
>>Mexicans got a Nintendo show called Nintendomania
It was shit. During the N64 Gus and his cronies would shill every single N64 game no matter how shitty it was. There was such a dearth of new games for the N64 that every saturnday they'd shill the same 3 shitty games all over again.

There were some anime dubs from Chile and Argentina. I think a big one was Candy-Candy.

Spain and other countries of Europe like Italy and France got their mainstream anime/manga boom before Latin America and USA did.
I remember going to comic stores in the 90s, and buying anime VHS and manga, and all of it was from Spain.
I was reading pic related before DBZ started airing here in Argentina (it started around may 1998 I think)
>>
>>4484446
That is true. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like that publishing company made its way to Mexico. All we had and still have is Panini as far as local publishers go.
>>
>>4484446
It's even bigger in Catalonia. Most dubbers come from that region and did both the Spanish and the Catalan version. There was even a public TV channel dedicated almost exclusively to anime from the 90's or early 00's until the end of the latter decade.
I live in Barcelona (a smaller city right next to it) and there's too many weebs here. It's been a thing for a while as well. I'm sick of them lol

Were there ever any Latam companies that produced nintendo games?
>>
In the late 90s Mexico got a translated version of N64 magazine from the UK I think. but since it was translated the issues were nearly a year old so I was reading about how cool Banjo Kazooie was when I had already finished the game, when I bought the magazine I thought it would be about a new Banjo game.

Mexico almost got a translated version of Nintendo Power since apparently NOA constantly told them they should do that instead but they never did, in that case all of latam would've had Nintendo Power.

I also remember Gamepro got a spanish translation in Mexico for a few months, it even had a commercial but it didn't last very long.
>>4484436
Those comics were awesome, they stopped randomly but I'm guessing it was a rights issue, I somehow doubt Club Nintendo was paying or asking for permission to use all those video game IPs for their characters.

Before that they began publishing the SFII manga and for whatever reason they stopped in the middle of the story and people were very mad since this was during SFII craze, I'm guessing it was also a rights issue where they started publishing they might not have had the full rights too.
>>
In the mid 90s Mexico would hold Nintendo events which were really cool I remember one for the launch of Killer Instinct/N64 among others. Tickets were cheap and it was all around hype.

Also the Mexican editors of Club Nintendo were tasked with translating the Spanish translation of Shadowgate 64, this was in the late 90s when different translations of games were extremely rare.

All around Mexico still gets a bunch of cool events from Nintendo, too bad the prices are crazy expensive which is why most people are now Xbox fans.

Chileans, is this the most reasonably priced store for retro games?

http://www.furupawa.cl/p/productos-en-venta.html

I'm going back to Santiago in March after a couple years out of the country so I'm already planning on what I can buy. I used to love going to random stores near Estacion Central but then they started selling repros all over the place and it became too much of a hassle.
>>
>>4485778
Is pretty decent overall and the guys are pretty chill with the customers.
Every other retro store is infested with resellers and idiots that think they're hot shit for knowing how expensive that flintstones game is.

Funny you should mention that, since the first season of Sailor Moon was dubbed directly from the DiC version and Digimon at the very least, used the US names.
>>
>>4486316
Go back to /v/.
>>
>>4486329
Yeah, Sailor Moon used the names from the DiC dub (Serena, Darien, Lita, Rini, etc...) until S, after that, everyone that appeared later (Like the outer senshi) had their original names.
Digimon got to keep the soundtrack and most of the original script atleast.
>>
>>4486342
>Yeah, Sailor Moon used the names from the DiC dub
That's not what I mean, the first batch of episodes were translated directly from the english version, plenty of shows were dubbed like this, the most recent example would be DBZ Kai

>>4484446
>Spain and other countries of Europe like Italy and France got their mainstream anime/manga boom before Latin America and USA did.
Our anime boom during the 90s was largely due to the popularity of anime in those countries, since our tv networks weren't so focused on American content, like nowadays
>>
>>4486342
So Season 1 of Sailor Moon is censored in latam spanish? I was sure it was uncensored.

And season 1 of digimon is uncensored? Also news to me, I thought it was just a dub of the American one.
>>
>>4486374
Is not, it only kept some of the names from the DiC dub as far as I know.
As for Digimon, only the "movie" was a dub from the american one, everything else was kept.

Weirdly enough, only the names, so they had a Western first name and a Japanese surname. Still no Sailor says segments. Sometimes shows are based on their English scripts.

And Oh Jesus, the case of Nadesico

>>4486373
>That's not what I mean, the first batch of episodes were translated directly from the english version, plenty of shows were dubbed like this, the most recent example would be DBZ Kai
But they weren't. Only the character's names were changed, and also Dark Kingdom became Negaverse, but the rest was translated directly from Japanese. Compare a sub with the Latin American dub and the DiC dub and it's obvious that the only influence DiC had were the names.

>>4486374
Both are uncensored, Season 1 of Sailor Moon has the full Japanese episodes, the senshi dying, all the works.

All Digimon seasons were uncensored and it makes me curious why you'd think S1 was a dub of the American show. The only thing they had in common is the westernized logo. It wasn't even like Sailor Moon where they changed names, Digimon was 100% translated from scratch.

>>4484148
I can confirm what Urgaybro says. In my case, and bear in mind I'm from a very small Laitn American town, you'd get current consoles like PlayStation or a N64 but you would be also playing famiclones left and right, because they had a stronger and cheaper library. So you never really "discarded" old gens, you kept finding new stuff to play.

I can confirm that virtually everyone in my town who grew up with vidya, even during the late 90's, is very knowledgeable in obscure NES shit for this reason.
>>
>>4483118
Nintendo had a really strong presence in Brazil up until the GC, then it grew back with the Wii, and as of now it's more of a niche, but it's still there. The thing is Nintendo's refusal to properly establish themselves (manufacture and importing-wise) in the country often led to expensive prices, which led to independent resellers being the main source for any game other than the mainstream batch we'd get on stores, and unless the seller in question had connections or means to travel outside, they'd pay heavy prices on games (result of a government that's always feeding on public money through ridiculous customs and national taxes, with the 20+ year old premise of "incentive to value/production of national market").

The raped resellers then re-price the product inside the country, up to more than 100% the original value, in hopes of profiting back; and that goes for most games, even the greatest hits, which in theory are plentyful, so no expensive price is needed. So, while you get the newest Super Mario Bros. game in countries like Canada, US, Australia,etc, for about $60 bucks on launch day, in Brazil you'll have to pay something like $150-$200 for it. Of course, this is just an allegorical comparison, since both currencies are very different in application.

So in the end, it's a mix of negligency from Nintendo, the country's history of cock-blocking international market (the ones that don't interest the greater capital, at least), the nasty dollar conversion, and the inherent need to scalpel people that these factors inflicted on the common selling behaviour.

Not everything sucks like Nintendo products, though, Sony and Microsoft are well established here, which through the years created and fed an entire fat market of gamers, leading to really affordable prices since ps3 years, america-tier cheap, with exception of things we can't find here, such as Limited Run Games, and whatnot.

Inevitably these brands are favored due to their accessibility.
>>
Do we have any statistics that show sales of consoles in latam?

I remember one from a while ago but I can't find it and IIRC it was Mexico that had the strongest sales, I doubt they're shunning the rest of latam just because Mexico is North America, it has to be legitimate sales being higher there.

I understand it's a chicken vs egg situation, piracy exists because there is no cheap way to do it officially and since there is piracy companies don't bother

Not him, but we're used to neutral spanish when it comes to voice acting. Argentine dubs feel weird and unnatural. It doesn't make sense, but that's how it is.

I don't remember much of it. Basically the Sega guy were very aggressive about the Genesis being better than the SNES and the Nintendo guys were unprepared to answer.
What I remember was the Sega guys saying that the SNES was not a 16-bit system but rather a 12-bit system with "turbocharged" bits while the Genesis was a real 16-bit system. Gus replied with something equally dumb babbling about the FX chip.
Gus and the other Nintendo guys got so buttmad that in the next issue of Club Nintendo (Gus was involved in both Nintendomania and Club Nintendo) they dedicated like half the magazine to show how superior the SNES was.

In the mid to late 90s in Argentina there was this midnight Tv show called Atorrantes, they always had a N64 on the set. I remember a few times they played Goldeneye or Turok.

Turns out we're both partly wrong/right, here's the info from Doblaje Wiki:
>El doblaje corrió a cargo de la empresa Intertrack S.A. de C.V. con la dirección de Gloria Rocha. Este doblaje se realizó en base a los masters originales de Japón, pero los guiones fueron traducidos de los guiones en inglés "Engrish" de Toei Animation junto a conceptos, términos y nombres de pila del doblaje inglés producido en Canadá por DiC Entertainment, que contenía los nombres de los personajes cambiados, propios y algunas censuras.

Too bad the magazine was (and still is) shit.
I bought it for years but realized how bad it was 7 years ago. Their fanboyism and changing opinions happened too hard.
Also, they gave fake info and sometimes outright lies as "official".
I still remember when the Pokemon 2000 movie was a thing and their official info was "Lugia: it's supposed to be the fusion of Articuno, Zapdos and Moltres so go figure their power."

The worst offender of their quality IMO is that time when they actually used Vietnamese Crystal to talk about the game (Pic related). This proved two things: after hating on pirates and emulation so much, they showed their beliefs are as fake as their standards and that they just didn't care about quality content at all.
>>
>>4483282
Totally not Gus and Pepe.

>>4484148
Crow was fine. His movie block was pretty interesting when he got the info right.
Panteon is a fucking fanboy tho.
He actually HATES the Playstation Megaman games just for being on a Sony platform. His argument?:
"These new games look too flashy and overdesign in contrast to the more simple and better looking SNES games"

Also, I hated how the magazine started on hating games that THEY FUCKING PRAISED in the past, such as Mario Sunshine and Kirby's Air Ride.
Whether these games are good or not is debateable but I'm talking about how they don't stick to their own standards.

I think it had its high and lows. Of course it had a lot of fanboyism bullshit, it was the official Nintendo magazine, the same happened with official (or even unofficial) Sega and Playstation magazines.
So I don't think it's worth talking about "beliefs", it was always a corporate magazine, the editors had to answer to the actual Nintendo exec's demands.
If you read other vidya magazines of the time, you'll see there's a LOT of bullshit in them. That's why it's so fun to read old magazine articles, too.
But then I think Club Nintendo had one of the best designs in vidya magazines, they used a lot of original artwork, and each page or section in the magazine had its own distinct visual design to it. I think that's something that was lost in later issues of the early 00s, but the 90s club nintendo has some great layouts.
It also had the arcade section which talked about new titles, even if those would never come out on nintendo systems, that's cool. I remember first reading about Darkstalkers on club nintendo.
"El control de los profesionales" was also a nice section, I think they stopped doing these later on.

Yeah but there were points when they were fans but "fair" in a sense they also called the competition by their name and praised their good games.
Suddenly their respect turned into hate to the point of not even naming Sony or Playstation by their names and, what I consider the worst offender of blind fanboyism, was when they attacked Sega of "uncreative names".
Yeah, because Nintendo is the fucking king of creative names (pic related)
This issue was actually the last one I bought before deciding they went too far with their lows. After years of reading them, I finally stopped. The magazine was making me more mad than it should. A fucking magazine.

Besides this, which got so out of hand when Nintendo was losing the console war to the PS1 that they basically stopped even acknowledging the existence of rival consoles (with ridiculous results), the magazine had no quality control whatsoever. Typos everywhere (>>4492868 has a very obvious one), second grade level grammar, misinformation everywhere, contradictory statements ON THE SAME VOLUME (pic related), and what got me the most was the hypocrisy. They shat on emulators, spread constant misinfo about them and pirated goods, and at the same time it was obviously clear that by the GBC era they were exclusively using emulators and outright pirated roms for their articles.

I still have about 20 volumes for nostagia, and while useful when there wasn't any internet, it became outright unnecessary during the late 90's. The only thing it was good for was to have official artwork on a printed format. In hindsight, its content was mostly shit through and through.
>>
>>4493832
Same here.
I'm >>4492868, >>4492876 and >>4493804
and as much as I shit on the magazine, I still keep old late 90's and early 2000's issues just for nostalgia purposes.
It was a time I didn't have internet at home and having printed videogame stuff was kinda neat even when I knew it was bad.
Even without internet I knew when they lied of had misinformation but... dunno, I was getting videogame stuff monthly. I was like 14 then so I wasn't as judgemental as now.

For me, that magazine was like that friend who seemed pretty cool when you start hanging out with him, has lots of games he invites you to play and swears he gets them legit.
As time passes you realize that friend was full of shit, told you fake cheats and tricks and pirated everything but at least helped you get started in this awesome hobby and served as an example of what NOT to follow.

That's the best description of the magazine I've ever read (not that I've read a whole lot since nobody cares about it, but still).

On a slightly related note, what became of Club Nintendo MX? It switched to digital only, but I'm reading that they said they were going to keep printing it for distribution outside of Mexico? And how's the magazine now, anyway? The magazine "app" has terrible reviews.
>>
>>4493894
Has fewer pages. Is more expensive. The content and review quality is even lower and are more fanboys than ever.
And basically they tell you shit everybody knows and what'd you expect.
For instance "In this issue we're covering Mario Odyssey. Best game ever."

The only thing it has going for it is its editorial and graphic design which I like a lot (reminds me to Ahoy from youtube) but is worse on every aspect.
I'm the same fucker hating on it from the previous posts, I just bought two issues of it because: one had a Metal Gear Solid 3 cover and another because it had a Bayonetta 2 poster. The magazine itself was a bad bonus for me.
If I hated them for shitting of Sega and their creativeness, one of those issues was worse.
They were attacking on KOF because "they release too many times the same game with minimal changes" and on the very same page praised Zelda which does the exact same thing (8 dungeons, get items, puzzles, uncreative plot of good vs. evil, and man, I love Zelda and even I can see that).
So they suffer of a serious case of "It's alright when Nintendo does it".

There was other time when a friend bought an issue and bursted into laughter when they were actually saying the Wii U was actually real good and just misunderstood.

I'm from Chile so that's how I still got those printed issues.
For YEARS the magazine costed $1500 chilean pesos which was pretty fair for a magazine with posters and 96 pages.

Now it costs $2800 IIRC and has like 30 or 35 pages less, is fucking stapled and the page material feels of worse quality too.
>>
>>4493910
I'm Chilean too bit haven't lived there in a while. I know my parents still have a box full of Club Nintendo magazines in the attic... even after I stopped reading it I couldn't get rid of them.

Sometimes I wonder what happened to the guys that worked there. Ace, Axy, Ryo, Spot, Conejo, Crow, Panteón...
>>
>>4493949
Axy and Spot were obviously Gus and Pepe. Ace and Ryo I'm pretty sure they were just hollow names that worked as their counterparts here.
God I miss Conejo, his section in the magazine was the best, I'm pretty sure he left them because he knew the magazine was shit.
Crow as I said a couple of posts above was alright. His film section was interesting.
Panteon started alright, The Graveyard was pretty interesting but as time passed he became an absurd fanboy to the point I instinctively ignored him.

I remember when they started the official magazine internet forum and I made a thread stating all the things I disliked about the magazine which I posted here and they erased me right away. Guess they weren't too fond of constructive criticism (I was super respectful back then, I wasn't the smug little fucker I am now).
And it sucked, I was mad with the magazine because I wanted it to be good, but the miracle never happened. Now it's too late. Printed magazines are a dying channel anyway.

Oh, and LET'S NOT TALK ABOUT Master Kira.
Anyone who knows the shit he posts on Twitter knows what am I talking about.

As I said, if you read other company-centered magazines like Sega or PlayStation magazines, they also do fanboy shit like that and mock the competition. It was console war shitposting in printed form. That "sega is uncreative with their names" is pretty tame compared to what you might find in other magazines. Personally, I don't even remember reading about other systems on Club Nintendo, all the issues I have focus on nintendo and ignore any other companies, except for arcades. But again, I stopped reading the magazine around the start of 6th gen.
About their fuck ups and misinformation like on MM7, yeah, a lot of times they just guessed things (see they say "No creemos que salga"), probably were informed that the game was coming out close to the end of edition process and they added the bit of information at the last minute. It's something that happened on magazines, as I said, if you read other vidya magazines of the time, there's always some bullshit you can find.
Not defending them just saying the things they were guilty of was kind of a thing every other vidya magazine did, to varying degrees.

He's a guy who worked on the same level as Crow, Panteon and those guys going under the name of just Master.
In twitter he's clearly delusional, think Nintendo is better and bigger than life, thinks of himself as a man of culture and superior taste and basically his ego is quite high.
IIRC his section in the magazine was about Pokemon and fighting games tips (which were pretty obvious even for the most noob players)

Here in Brazil the SNES was more popular than the SMS and MD ever were, specially in 94 when we adopted Brazilian Real and our economy was doing good. Even the 2600 was more popular than sega.

Not exactly /vr/ but the GOAT magazine was Lazer, it had surprisingly accurate information about the anime industry, among other nerd stuff, for a pre-mainstream internet magazine and they got away showing asses and titties in an all ages magazine for some reason, Ivrea had to stop publishing the magazine when they got a cease and decease order from a Japanese company for using some show's pictures without permission.

Did Lazer got to other latin american countries?
I liked the early issues, it was a good magazine, useful for pre-internet times as you said. Although RAN was the true "cult" anime magazine, Lazer was more professional, and was actually aimed at the public that watched the anime that was on TV, not for the otaku who was hunting down fansubbed VHSs like RAN was.
Spain also had some good magazines, like Kame (and their special books), Dokan and Minami (I mainly bought those because of the CD-ROMs, they were cramped with stuff).
The guys from RAN later made Nuke, which was also pretty good.
>>
>>4500339
>Did Lazer got to other latin american countries?
Yes at least here in Costa Rica, it wasn't the most mainstream magazine though it was only was available in a shop specialized in magazines called La Casa de las Revistas, now out of business as far as I know. In said shop they used to sell international magazines in english some that I recall checking out were Metal Hammer and Newtype USA, never heard about RAN until now

That's pretty cool, yeah that's how I also got my spanish magazines, in specialized stores, one of which is now out of business as well, I got some japanese Newtype issues there. At one point, around 1999 and 2000, anime got so big that even regular street magazine kiosks had Dokan and Minami issues.
RAN was never sold outside Argentina, and only the last couple numbers had a more professional edition, it was a black and white fanzine for most of its life. Nuke was more professional and edited by the same editorial that made Next Level and Extreme PC, 2 late 90s/2000s vidya magazines that were also popular here.
