Were they Nintendogs? I hear they can legally do that unless you bought the extended warranty.
What’s next, Commission on Men’s Studies to counter the history behind the 19th Amendment?
From The Atlantic’s piece: “The most radical thread in the 1619 Project is not its contention that slavery’s legacy continues to shape American institutions; it’s the authors’ pessimism that a majority of white people will abandon racism and work with black Americans toward a more perfect union.”
This is the thing… Read more
Nintendo is doing that deliberately to funnel players into digital sales because they have a higher profit margin on digital. They’re not stupid but they are being incredibly manipulative and anti-consumer.
The only problem with everything you listed is how it makes perfect sense. But will not happen cause why put in any effort to make shopping a fun experience when it can be stressful for free. Plus what incentive does a retailer have if they know they are getting 100% of the sales anyway.
That’s what it sounds like to me, to. Or “So long-a Bowser!”
As evidenced by his falling numbers amongst the college educated, it’s a tough sell for people with brains. Is that enough to win an election?
So petty reactionary bigot, announces petty reactionary executive order, because he’d rather be a petty reactionary bigot than do a damn thing about the 200K+ deaths he’s presiding over. Oh well. I guess “it is what it is.” Read more
My thought, though, is that by publicly sharing the date and time as part of their presentation (as opposed to Sony providing a nebulous announcement via tweet after theirs), Microsoft made it much less likely that retailers would open preorders early. That would create ill will that would squarely fall on those… Read more
It’s the same people who get aroused every time the term “free market” is mentioned.
I said this in the comments on another article, but it’s 2020 and I want to know why in the fuck we’re still expected to slam a website all at once and frantically click Checkout buttons trying desperately to buy something. It’s a terrible fucking system, it’s been a terrible system for as long as it’s existed and… Read more
Walmart for some reason has been discounting most new games by $10 for a while now. You might be able to get it from there for $50.
In fairness, in the original Super Mario All-Stars all four of the games were 1) on the same console and 2) released over the course of three years (1985-1988). Compare that to these three games released across three consoles over 11 years (1996-2007). Also, the amount of material on four NES Mario games (and remember… Read more
I think most of those maneuvers are pretty optional, only being necessary for a few things like Koopa races (which are sometimes ridiculously hard). I personally thought most of the transformations in Odyssey were pretty intuitive and a joy to play around with. If you were going for 100%, I can see your frustration,… Read more
I mean, Mario in 64 had, like, a dozen different kinds of jumps he could perform, not to mention his other moves like his punches and kicks.
I really wish they would have done a bit more with these, an alternative Mario 64 camera control option or the option to play with a GameCube controller would have been great and probably pretty easy. I have a suspicion that there was a bit more planned for this collection before the pandemic hit
