Gonna play devil's advocate for a moment and with a purpose.
Those points are correct, but there's one technicality: I did not request people to not hack the original game, which I don't own rights to. I requested people not to edit my hack, which is my work and is what I'm distributing. The hack is my pixel art and my code, so I should have the rights to those.
If they take the original game, hack it, and then apply my hack to it, that's their right to do so. But editting my hack isn't. I expect people to wait the same time before someone can edit my hack as they wait to edit recently released games, as stated by the site rules as I've quoted before in this thread.
"For current generation platforms including Nintendo 3DS, Nintendo Wii U, Playstation 4, Playstation Vita, and Xbox One; only news, documents, and utilities may be submitted. No hacks or translations are permitted at this time."
Doesn't it seem to be the same? I don't see why both new hacks and full new games shouldn't be treated the same. A console's life cycle is tipically 5 years, so there's a number.
Of course, I'm probably not going to enter any legal battles about people editting my hack. It is a request, as you've said.
Regarding that video he was clearly going for something there with that tone. I think he just missed the spot, but it was a nice try.
Midna: no, that section is entirely new
