Nice vid. Fun to watch. The guy had trouble with Link'n Logs!?!?! OMG people in the 80's are stupid. I thought old people were dumb because of old age but I guess they were dumb even when they were young. LOL

It looks like the spelled Howard Philips' name wrong. It only has one 'l', not two. http://en.wikipedia.org/wik...

That clip was old school! Did anyone notice that the reporter at the end was a young Bill O'Riely?? He should have stuck to covering Nintendo...

It's a "scroll wheel" feature on the controller. Switch 2 rumored to have one.

Scroll wheel would be in line with nintendos uniqueness I find appealing imo.

Just wish they would lower their prices after games are a few years old. Its hard in countries where the exchange rate kills gaming. 1 game is = to and 1/8 of their paycheck. Hard to play a nice mario when its like that.

Damn, you guys got mean marios over there?

Nintendo used to lower prices back in the Gamecube Wii days. They were called Nintendo Selects and priced $20.00. They haven't done that in years. Nintendo should!

I miss those days, they didn't even lower prices for 3DS games before they scuttled new Eshop purchases, or prices on physical copies. I've also noticed the discounts for Switch games aren't as good now that the pandemic has been over for a while, especially on first party games. I wish they would bring the Selects back and drop $20 off the price permanently.

It's about time for Arkanoids return!

Scroll Wheel would be very cool. Legit great feature for games that need select skills, itens, weapons, etc.

Especially if "next to the triggers" means clickable scroll wheels instead of bumpers/L1R1.

That would be so great for games where those buttons already bring up in-game select wheels

Was not one of my favorite consoles but the shit a person could do with it. A gameboy player was about the reason why I liked the GC. And taking it apart to clean it pretty simple I wish Nintendo would let the gameboy player work on the Switch.

Those are um... They're certainly something!

The Xbox controller looks better, logo is less intrusive.

Hmph, you were lucky enough to be playing games with a yorkshire tea controller!

Back in my day we only had rectangular controllers that would give you blisters and wear your thumbs down to a nub!
