Mario on the title



”The environment where PlayStation wins is best for this industry” (Jack Tretton, 2009)

I'm not sure why you think "people want to have longer Mario tennis matches" = "people expect this game to be a tennis sim".  It amazes me how many people are shitting on others for making a completely valid complaint.

The game is clearly not a sim. But, neither were other Mario Tennis games that had this feature. Neither were the Hot Shots Tennis games that had this feature. This is literally something that would take one person no more than one day of programming to implement. There is literally no reason for this not to be included. Really? Implying people are dumb for wanting to have longer tennis like other games in the series have done? For wanting the same options in exhibition mode that are available in online mode? HOW DARE THEY!?!

It's like if they made a Mario baseball game, and it only had the option for three to five innings that, that were one to two outs per side, and people asked for the ability in exhibition matches to add make the game seven or nine innings, and the ability to make those innings three outs each. Like, why not? If you don't want to have longer games, just don't use the feature. Stick with the three game, two set default online matches.

Nintendo doesn't allow refunds if you buy digitally.

Well that's pretty uncool.
Reminds me once more to not buy the digital versions of Nintedo's retail games.

None of the platform holders refund digital games to my knowledge.



My (locked) thread about how difficulty should be a decision for the developers, not the gamers.

Sony did when my kid accidentally bought a PS4 game messing around with a controller while my wife worked from home.

Microsoft and Steam have refund policy on digital versions of games (14 days or 2 playable hours for Microsoft)

Sony has the same as well but it may require more teeth pulling

So again, not enough research was done if that's what you assumed. People who got the game early said the options were limited.

 

What research do you expect to people who preorder to do? It is not like it was spelt out with a WARNING: can't change set and game numbers. That is a fundamental core of a tennis game and shouldn't have been omitted. It is bad press that could have been avoided easily. 

The only info that was provided was you can turn off the fancy shit and play real tennis.

As I just said, listen to those who actually have the game. There's no way to spin this to make it not the consumers fault. Nintendo isn't holding a gun to their head forcing them to buy the game.

Hey. I have the game. Every arcade tennis game I have ever played including prior Mario Tennis games have had this feature. I have also had the ability to set game length/time in football, soccer, hockey, baseball, and racing games that are both arcade and sim oriented. Why should I have any reason to expect this one shouldn't?

This is not the consumers fault in any way. This is a basic, reasonable expectation for pretty much any sports game to have, regardless of whether it's slanted towards arcade or slim. Other Mario Tennis games have had this feature. It is absolutely absurd to think this is an unreasonable expectation.

I never said that was unreasonable expectation, infact I said the lack of options was a mistake that needs fixing in my very first post on this thread. However it is still just that, an expectation, not fact or truth. That one doesn't get confirmation of their expectations being met before buying is only the consumers fault.
