Gamnesia: Nintendo needs to get their act together. You read that first sentence correctly. Nintendo is having a lot of trouble right now, what with a rough Wii U launch and other competitors announcing shiny new consoles. The Big N is in financial danger, and that fact simply cannot be ignored.
However, that problem is miniscule to the issue concerning the interaction the publisher has with its loyal consumers. We fans give Nintendo our all. We purchase their brand new games. We support them when the going gets rough. We create new things to show our appreciation and love for the company! Nintendo fans love Nintendo.
Unfortunately, it seems like Nintendo doesn't love us back.
