Nintendo Switch - The customer is always left

MK9 is gonna have Smash vibes for sure. They already have a few non-Mario characters in MK8. They're gonna build up on that.
Over under on this potential game having a comparable number to Smash Ultimate's roster?

MK only has, like, 3 characters functionally, so developing them would be stupid easy. Though there's a part of me that feels like they wouldn't want the roster to be too much more massive than 8's for whatever reason.

It'll probably be purely Nintendo characters and maybe include Sonic as a pity fuck.

The fact that BDSP is second despite being released so late into the year is absolute madness.

And then there is MK8 that is it's own different madness.

Happy for Rise though. Well deserved.

I always see some console war shit flinging online between MH fans and it’s always funny to me because Capcom just releases its MH wherever they want and just shit sales.

Fucking Konami somehow getting Switch users viced on some train game. Odd times. Almost as weird as seeing a Microsoft game in Japan’s too 10.

Xbox Series X | S – 97,234 / 128,658

I wonder where these 3DSs came from? Leftover units?

Why is Zelda breath of the wild still expensive? I recently bought a Switch and i wanted play some of the Zelda games but it cost 70€ on e-shop. Isnt this game 4 or 5 years old by now?

Gameboy Pokemon cost as much as they did on release

Nintendo games never get price cuts

It's an evergreen title - it's been 5 years and it keeps on selling to new consumers no matter how long ago it launched.

To be fair, the WiiU was handled retardedly.
The Wii U failure sits firmly in the back of every Nintendo big wig's wig, and they'll do all they can to avoid another. But even still, I won't be surprised if they fuck up again. All I know is, failure or not, I'll probably get decent games out of them.

Now with Microsoft's recent Activision acquisition accelerating and conditioning the industry and consumers towards a subscription model, who knows if they'll follow suit or get swept away by the current trends.

Another day, another Retro Studios tweet asking for essential hires:


I was so pleased with Dread and am so happy with SMT V right now, I'm not even phased and remain cautiously optimistic and prepared for the long(er) wait.

What in the actual fuck did Nintendo do to Retro (their best studio besides Nintendo EAD mind you) that they are THAT understaffed?
