I'm absolutely pissed off that they have the balls to charge for dlc for 5 extra levels in Captain toad. Not only, they already have had the balls to put 0 f***** effort in every single wiiU port they have made so far (Barely adding any extra content) AND charge full price. On TOP OF THAT, they have the balls to release dlc and charge for it. Meager dlc should I add to that. The original game came with 70 levels, you're telling me you can only add 5 levels? LOL. That kind of greedy Nintendo (Charging for terrible online service, 0 effort wii U ports, cheap mobile games filled to the brim with microtransactions, etc) is becoming a consistent theme ever since Iwata passed. I wouldn't be surprised if we get Animal crossing on switch with microtransactions.
And to think people were defending their ports last year is laughable. Sure, they're smart from a business standpoint. Put 0 effort and rake in tons of sales and even get defended by fanboys. But on top of that, now we can even sell them DLC EXCLUSIVE to the switch version meaning f**k everyone who purchased the game on other platforms, INCLUDING the people who purchased the 3DS AND wiiU versions!
Also, another side note to rant, although that title I am excited for, why do they ABSOLUTELY have to remake 2d Zelda games. Why can't they simply craft a BRAND new 2D Zelda game. Or I don't know, make LA2. Adds even more to the laziness I'm talking about. I've never been more displeased with a console in a long time in terms of first party offerings. Sure, we started off on a bang, but ever since, it's been sluggish at best for everyone who stuck through thick and thin with Nintendo during the wiiU era.
/end of rant
Stop trying to speak for everyone, myself and many others owned Wii U and are more than happy with Switch output. Is it perfect? Far from it, but its miles better than Wii U and better than 3DS as well.
Alright, I gathered a list of ALL Nintendo published game released in 2018. Here it is:
- Bayonetta 1/2 (Direct port, no meaningful new content, charged full price)
-Hyrule warriors (Direct port, 0 effort put into it, 0 new meaningful content, charged full price)
-Captain Toad (Direct port, Slight amount of new content put in, Barely any effort put in, Charged same price as the original wiiU release on top of releasing paid DLC instead of it being added to the port in order to add a bit of value, but nope again, Nintendo doesn't give a shit about consumers (New Nintendo I should say) )
- Nintendo labo (First original release, Hurray!)
- Mario tennis Ace ( AA release, Mario sports game)
- Sushi striker (Never heard of this game, apparently was published by Nintendo)
- Fitness boxing (Lol)
- Mario party (AA release again)
- Super smash ( First brand new AAA release)
- Pokémon (Remake, with actual effort put in. Although not developed by Nintendo)
- Go vacation (Lol)
Alright, so let's compile the data... For 2018, Nintendo released 3 full priced wiiU ports will little to no effort put into them and 1 remake, 1 AAA game, 2 AA games which are consisted of 1 party game and one Mario sports game, and a slew of shovelware including fitness boxing, go vacation and Labo.
Any self-respecting Nintendo consumer would be pissed. You're getting burned and spit in your face for supporting them when they needed your support the most. Sure, 2019 is shaping up for being a much better year. But once again, releasing paid dlc for captain toad and releasing NSMBUD with NO extra levels, NONE! They just don't give 2 flying damns about you or any Nintendo consumer.
Just think about how long it would have taken them to even only design an extra 10 or so levels for NSMBUD and then you will realise just how fu**** lazy they were with these ports. And now, they're even being lazy with the dlc.
