But when will it fall off a cliff DAMN IT!

I've been promised that it will fall of a cliff for months now on this site and I am still waiting

Actually I think it's been more than a year, IIRC quickrick's infamous prophecy about Switch falling off a cliff in 2018 came late in 2017.

I almost miss the guy sometimes, would've been interesting to see what absurd claims he'd have made next. It was always something; after the cliff it became Switch won't win any NPD in 2018, Switch's holidays will be flat YOY despite Smash, Smash will sell only 8-10 million lifetime, etc.

Yep the cliff talk started in 2017 and I too would like to hear what kind of excuses/claims he would come up with.

Don't worry we'll always have good ol' pachter to fill that void.

Time to use a gravity switch !

So we have to use a switch to destroy the switch? Sounds legit considering the only thing that can stop the switch right now is the switch. But if we use the switch to stop the switch, what will be left to stop the remaining switch? And if the switch falls off the cliff but also climbs the cliff, will we just have switch everywhere. 

Wait!!!.... I've got it! The switch will become the cliff and since things are always in motion, the switch will fall off the cliff while climbing the cliff. That makes sense. The switch will climb itself and fall off itself.



Just a guy who doesn't want to be bored. Also

I can think of a few...

- 2018 was Switch's peak year and it's all downhill from here

- Pokemon Gen 8 won't sell systems cos every Pokemon fan already bought one for Let's Go

- Animal Crossing won't sell systems because I just don't think it will

- Switch will die overnight when PS5/Nextbox are announced

Yep all good ones

Animal Crossing isnt big, it only sells in Japan (ignores that it sold ~6m outside of Japan on DS/3DS)

Smash Bros has every Nintendo character in it so every fan of every Nintendo franchise already got a Switch for Smash

One things for certain, Rick certainly left his mark on this forum. A permanent one by the looks of it.

naw my argument would be that i just made a very wrong prediction. after the wiiu i thought people had moved on from nintendo i was convinced in my mind. always said 2018 would be the year that convinced me switch was gonna be big, i think its' its gonna do 90-100 million easy now. nintendo is once again loved by the masses, i was dead wrong, perfect time for my banning lol ;)  anyway my last posting here, had this account a long time to contest my bannings to CGI, peace.

Yeah, he expected that 2018 sales would fall off a cliff compared to 2017, and when that didn't materialize he explained that with fall off a cliff he meant essentially flat

If he hadstill been around and used that phrase again, I would have countered that Cliff Blezinski tripped and his Switch fell out of his hands, thus making it true: It then fell off a Cliff, right

I think remembering him saying something like Animal Crossing won't sell because the Wii U game (which is an universally hated spinoff) didn't sell, but that could have been someone else, too
