It shouldn't be hard for a company like Nintendo to respect its own legacy.
Something's definitely wrong when the best place to play Nintendo games is PC. Nintendo used to be synonymous with quality, but that legacy is seemingly being abused but the current management. They need positive change - and fast - or the world will start to notice and their golden goose will eventually stop laying.
Glad I didn't waste money on that mess. They really are all about minimum effort for maximum profit these days.
These days? These decades!
The greedy bastards should have just made an N64 Classic.
I'm sure they would f'cked that one up as well.
seriously. enjoy them hardly making any and them being impossible to find
I see what you mean. But Sony did the same with the Playstation Classic, unfortunately.
I was going to say using 50hz games for the classic mini ranks right up there. Nothing against them in PAL territories but outside of EU its all pretty much 60hz NTSC.
The issue with 50Hz was mostly the devs fault for not changing game speed, so most games ended up slower. It was only when Dreamcast arrived that we got a choice of 50 or 60Hz which solved the issue completely, or if you played on handheld or PC.
And Sony got dragged over the coals for it. Bad press, bad sales, practically couldn't give the PlayStation Classic away. Yet I'm sure people are robotically tossing money at Nintendo for this mess, bad press be damned.
There is that aspect of it.
Unless you mod it then it becomes a fun toy to mess with. Also add a 8bit Do wireless adaptor to hook a ps4 controller. It then becomes the ultimate JRPG machine.
Nintendo's shares have dropped a bit recently, I feel like they might be going into panic mode and are making poor decisions. They should have just waited till it was ready to be launched.
Problem is Nintendo has a really loyal customer base. They no longer need to compete with Sony/MS and no longer need to push the boundaries of innovation. On the Wii, I've only bought Mario Galaxy 1/2, Smash Bros Brawl, Twilight Princess, Skyward Sword, Mario Kart Wii, Metroid Prime 3 Wii U: Mario 3D World, Smash Bros, Mario Kart 8 Switch: Mario Odyssey, Smash Bros Ultimate, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Breath of the Wild, Metroid Dread. Basically, Mario/Smash Bros/Mario Kart/Zelda/Metroid each generation. Honestly, if these games released on PC or other consoles, I wouldn't buy a Nintendo console.
So what you're saying is that you are part of the problem?
Sort of, yeh. But I don't subscribe to Nintendo Switch online, at least.
Nintendo certainly appreciates your loyalty, but your money even more.
I try my best to get the games on a discount. Only ones I preorder are Zeldas.
"and no longer need to push the boundaries of innovation." I disagree. The switch itself is very different than other gaming consoles, love it or hate it they definitely didn't go the traditional route and tried with something different. "if these games released on PC or other consoles, I wouldn't buy a Nintendo console." Can you not say the same about the other consoles if their exclusives were also released for PC?
As a hardware Switch isn't really an innovation. It was just a variant of nVidia Shield with Mario and Zelda on it. Sony and MS couldn't do similar thing because they're stuck with pursuing power.
Melankolis The Sheild and Switch aren't remotely similar, the Sheild is a streaming device running Android and doesn't have the gimmick of instantly switching between home to portable gaming like the Switch. Sony and MS have chosen to go with what they see as the safe route, power and innovation can coexist.
So, after all these years, it's true. Sega does what Nintendon't. Figures...
"I know that other companies aren’t much better when it comes to backward compatibility and treating their respective histories with the right amount of reverence..." Xbox Series X|S says hi. https://youtu.be/i1iIaSbK9b...
Nah, Sony classic was a dumpster fire as well.
Come on people, Nintendo haven’t given a shit about anyone in over a decade. All they want to do is put as little effort in as they can and exploit children as much as possible. What was the last consumer friendly move they did???
Glad I own some of the N64 games on the N64 itself and I own the Genesis games through the Genesis mini collection packs and the actual genesis itself. At $65 Canadian a year to play this hot mess I am just going to avoid it this is what happens when the quality control guy is on vacation. I mean Microsoft can get the emulation right when it comes to games being bc on Xbox consoles you think Nintendo would get it right.
Why is it so hard for them to understand what gamers want?! They already made remakes of both n64 Zelda's on the 3ds. Those should be included here. Instead we get worse than og versions?! 🤷🤦
While I do agree, keep in mind the N64 is a total pain in the ass to emulate. Emulators today still do not run every N64 game properly. BigN should at the very least be able to make a better emulator considering they understand everything about the system they created.
LOL like Nintendo care what you guys think
Emulation does what Nintendont
