After reading this thread I've got a bit confused
Does Nintendo have a explicit policy against micro-transactions I'm not aware of?
It's more that a few of the games that have used them, all free games from Pokemon or Kirby, the Free to Start titles, have never really blown up. It ins't a part of the culture and isn't overly pursued beyond arguably Amiibo.
The Democratic Nintendo fan....is that a paradox? I'm fond of one of the more conservative companies in the industry, but I vote Liberally and view myself that way 90% of the time?
