Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Biggest issue with Nintendo when they are successful is that they become too greedy

Firstly, Metallox is a liar. If you'd ever tried pizza with pineapple you'd probably adore pizza.

Secondly, burgers are better with pineapple too, so you should buy a pineapple either way!

Meat with pineapple is a reasonable culinary mix to me, I have tried it and it tastes good. But tomato sauce with pineapple? Man, that's a big no. 

Really? That's such a natural combination to me. The other day when I really wanted pineapple my first thought was to make spaghetti bolognese with pineapple. It was awesome by the way!

Considering Hawaiian Pizza wasn't a thing until 1957, he's probably a better example of what life without pineapple pizza results in.

Defecated invented by a Greek born Canadian pizza chef that wanted to be remembered forever as the fourth most evil chef ever after Cracco, Ramsay and Bastianich, but he actually stole the recipe from Hitler's cook before strangling him to bury his dirty secret! 

@Alby_da_Wolf , I missed this otherwise I wouldn't have made a late addition about what I learned about Hitler and 1957 to my last post.

Now I have to  twist  change my historical account to contain your additional research, by making your events all about people continuing Hitler's pizza legacy after his death by pineapple asphyxiation in 1957 and by doing so stop any contamination of history that leads to plunging us into a time loop.

when they fail they get super productive to save their reputation, and when they are back in the safe zone - like now - they do whatever shit will maximize their gains, regardless of whether it hurts their image or not

It's weird. Remember the Wii U era? Lots of samey and safey titles despite the fact the console was failing. Nintendo got cold feet and decided to throw their resources to increase the value of their games a la Breath of the Wild, and the first result of such urgency, or rather, necessity, was Splatoon. The Switch ultimately received most of that renovated flow in Nintendo's game development. We got ARMS, Splatoon 2, Odyssey, the biggest Smash, Fire Emblem and Animal Crossing entries yet and a few other games. But now it seems we're in the middle of the gap before we can receive a new wave of huge games, or at least I hope so.

I never had thought of mixing spaghetti with pineapple. I might try it someday, maybe not with tomato sauce but something like clam sauce. I think that could be a nice combination. 



My bet with The_Liquid_Laser: I think the Switch won't surpass the PS2 as the best selling system of all time. If it does, I'll play a game of a list that The_Liquid_Laser will provide, I will have to play it for 50 hours or complete it, whatever comes first.

Ah, yes! One of my uncles likes to roast chicken with beer inside the oven, or something like that, I have yet to ask him how he does it. That's honestly my favorite chicken, it tastes like your regular roasted chicken but with such an exquisite sweet flavor added. He made me one just for me in New Year, and it's still the best meal I've had in half a year, I think. So, yeah, sweet chicken rocks.

I must say I have always hated Nintendo pricing. Pretty much every other publisher, Microsoft, Sony, and 3rd party, will eventually drop the price of their $60 games to $20, sometimes even $10 or $5 if you catch a good deal. But Nintendo games stay at full price for years, sometimes hitting $50 or $40 on a sale, or $30 permanently if Nintendo does a Selects collection (though they have yet to do one of those for Switch afaik, the last new Selects additions were in 2016 on Wii U and 3DS I think).

I hate it, as a gamer who is on a tight budget. There are several 1st/2nd party Nintendo games I would love to buy currently, but I just can’t afford them currently, even though some of them are years old now and could be grabbed for $5-20 by now if they were games released by any other publisher. Just looked up the price on all of the Switch exclusives that interest me that I haven’t bought yet, they all range between $45 and $60 even though all of them are more than a year old now.

For me, the biggest issue is pricing on software and peripherals, it's crazy to charge full price after years on the market for games. When the Wii released, the cost of a single controller was almost half that of the console itself.

It's the razor and blades business model, but Ninty's necromancers managed to make it even more evil than Gillette.

Looks like Nintendo priced it reasonably, after all.

Of course it's reasonably priced. People love to complain, is all.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

A Biased Review Reloaded / Open Your Eyes / Switch Shipments

Nintendo probably fixes their mistake (Super Mario 3D All-Stars for $50) in April and will offer the three games separately for $50 - $60 each.
