A couple months ago Redditor NoohjXLVII posted online, thanking Bethesda for Fallout 4, which he said helped keep his mind off a family tragedy.

“I have spent over 500 [hours] in this game,” NoohjXLVII wrote on the Fallout 4 Reddit (via Eurogamer). “Partly due to the fun gameplay, the new survival mode, and just the game in general. My dad passed away last year (age 56)... I didn’t take it well.”

He dealt with the pain through creating a bipedal sentry bot and naming it after his father -- GR-36 (father's name was Greg). Then, this summer NoohjXLVII was struck yet again by another devastating blow: he received a call that his 24-year-old brother was in the ICU. His brother passed away shortly thereafter, and his friends started up a GoFundMe, which details his medical condition.

“Thank you Bethesda for providing me with this wonderful game and distraction for everything I’m going through,” NoohjXLVII wrote.

“The words they use sound exactly like him, however he was also a pretty funny guy, full of puns,” NoohjXLVII wrote online yesterday, giving thanks to Bethesda, and saying he'd forever be in their debt.

“P.S.,” NoohjXLVII added. “Don’t feel guilty about taking his stuff! He insists you take it and in real life he would give you the shirt off of his back to help those in need.”

Yesterday we shared the news/trailer for the side-scroller Pikmin 3DS, and since then it appears sh*t has hit the fan. Folks near and far started up the following petition with hopes to put a stop to the development of Pikmin 3DS.

We, as gamers, have had to suffer a Pikmin drought for 4 years.  We heard the hype and heard the promises, and we were finally about to receive absolution on September 1, 2016 with the announcement of a new Pikmin game.  We saw the trailer, and what we saw left our mouths agape at the SLAP IN THE FACE we received from Nintendo of America that a new Pikmin game would play differently from the previous games in the series.  We have been waiting for 4 years for a new Pikmin game.  But we have been denied again despite constant begging and pleading.

But enough is enough. This INSULT will not stand. It's time for Nintendo to start listening to their fans and make a REAL Pikmin game.  This petition is for the summary cancellation of Pikmin 3DS, the announcement of a new Pikmin game, a PROPER title starring Olimar and taking place on Earth and nowhere else.

And for their REPEATED SLIGHTS and INSULTS, we call for the summary resignations and blacklisting of Reggie Betray-Aime, Bill Trinen, JC Rodriguez, and whoever that girl was.  THIS IS THE PRICE YOU PAY FOR DISAPPOINTING US.

FURTHERMORE, this petition is to force Nintendo to formally accept a fan game, Pikmin: The Testament of Fortitude's Error (I haven't finished the title yet) as a token of good faith for VICIOUSLY RUINING and CENSORING OUR CHILDHOODS(Including, but not limited to, mine.)

Meet all of these demands and I'll stop my "spirited correspondence" to your twitter accounts and email when my mother lets me use the internet.
