    Guys a douch. Sorry about the joycons on our original switch models.. we've made new systems called the lite tho! And we send you the broke joycons with them again! Enjoy those broken cons with our huuuge library of 8 year old ported games, totally unforgettable unheard ofs, limited nintenco classics since theywouldnt dish a single penny to obtain rights to licensed games.. use weak servers so ppl are forced to get an ethernet adapter to ensure smooth gameplay..tablet with a small plastic case for its hd wire..meanwhile theres way better tablets for way cheaper we can emulate from..overpriced and undergiven. Nintendo in short is
    Short arms, deep pockets.
    Completely against community things, hence why the most youll ever get for free is spirits for smash and a shiny pokemon here n there.. meanwhile these free games are dropping new content that changes the gameplay weekly.
    Nintendo is super pathetic once you take ypur mind out of nostalgia and put it into a business aspect and a consumer aspect..not as the player but as the person considering where each dollar went to and what you got from it.

    A small mistake in this excellent video; Reggie was born in 1961, not '51.

    The Switch was not marketed as a handheld but a console that can be taken with you. Nintendo wanted to initially avoid it being viewed as a "handheld first" to avoid concern that the Switch would canibilize the marketshare of Nintendo's other handhelds.

    Damn. Hearing him choke up while talking about Iwata hit me almost as hard as Iwata's passing. Still does.

    One of the greatest Man's alive. I cannot even believe that it's a over kinda sad tbh. But I even was shocked how much he had done even before joining Nintendo. And I just sit here writing this instead of trying to do something similar as well.
