I only ever played Bubsy on the Atari Jaguar. So my experience with the franchise has been rather meh . So I don 't think I am able to get overly emotional about this one way or another. But I guess it is cool that someone is trying to revive ...

I don 't see a problem with this at all. Mario Kart is a E10 rated game. It is meant to be played by families, young children and generally everyone . Just as you would not see someone raising their middle finger in an E10 game, Nintendo realized that this ...

If Nintendo were worried about the lack of long term game sale revenue from such a system, then giving the system access to WIFI and the VC would have been a great start. They could have also charged more for it too. That and an 8ft cable for the controllers ...

I sympathize with you. I have 5-10 year old USB mice from HP, Dell, Lenovo, and Microsoft that are still kicking and connected to PCs. But the one time I spent 30 on a wireless gaming mouse, it lasted about a year and a half before it started having left ...

One example I like is Monument Valley. They did a free portion of the game and then sold an expansion that doubled the content. It was a pretty successful marketing model from what I understand. Something like that could work for a game like Super Mario Run.

I think what the intent of those quotes and the article is, at least the way I read it, is that people want to make games without feeling the need to hide who they really are. They want their race, gender, religion, whatever, to be incidental to their art and ...

Is there any legally binding language / contracts that forces developers to price match both physical and digital r n r nUmmm. It is pretty clear in the article. If you want to release a physical game on the Switch, it and the digital version must share the same price. ...

The ESRB doesn 't do that. They got their AO rating from the free automated system the ESRB built and they likely inputted the content data in such a way as to get an AO rating.

It isn 't really a pro-piracy stance. It is a stance that recognizes that piracy exists, that sometimes it can be justified, and, finally, that there really isn 't anything they can do to stop it.

I am with Alexandre on this. Nintendo was clear in all its marketing, the IAP list, and the game description that this was free to try with a single purchase to unlock the full game. No one should be surprised when they get that message.
