  1. Nintendo may have its fair share of fails, but let’s not forget its still around and sega and Atari have bit the dust. And because of Nintendo we have the Sony PlayStation

  2. I’m sorry but nothing will beat no. 3 or cancelling the Metriod fan game for me. They are arguably the most corrupted and heinous things Nintendo has ever done.

  3. The Nintendo Switch ports can sometimes be nothing more than a measly way to make more money. While Mario Kart 8 Deluxe does have the superior Battle Mode, that’s pretty much the only real thing that it beats Mario Kart 8 at. As such, if you already own the original Mario Kart 8, then going for the Switch port would make little sense, especially if you’ve purchased Mario Kart 8’s DLC. And for a competitive Mario Kart player, Mario Kart 8’s stat distribution is far more balanced than the way Mario Kart 8 Deluxe handled the character and part stats.

    Also, the Wii U version of Super Mario Maker is far superior to the 3DS version with its amiibo compatibility, and the ability to upload courses online.

    Of course, the Wii U version of Hyrule Warriors does not get any of the story scenarios that are exclusive to the 3DS version, while the 3DS version lacks Challenge Mode. In that dilemma, a Switch port that contains all the features from the Wii U and 3DS versions would be a plus for those who don’t want to mess around with the 3DS version.

  4. Ok Nintendo, I love the first party exclusive games, but seriously If I have to buy another console to play most of the other big title games, I might as well skip it. Yeah you can call Skyrim or Doom third party support, I call it beating a dead horse, those games are years old and been ported to every toaster on the planet already.
