Looks like nintendo can now install un-asked for icons to my #3DS desktop to advertise stuff. Kinda dont like that.
Someone got pissed that Super Mario 3 isn’t out on the Wii U Virtual Console in the US, so he called Nintendo tech support and subjected the operator to a self entitled hissy fit about how Nintendo “lied” to him.
The person making this sounds like its a kid, but he’s not the only one by far who thinks and acts like this.
I have seen this behavior IN PERSON and from FROM GROWN ADULTS.
At the E3 2013 event at the Nintendo World Store, from ADULTS, bitching and passionately angry that Nintendo was “fucking them over” and “lying to them” for things as trivial as having to wait in a line to play a video game demo.
I witnessed so much of this spoiled, wrongful entitlement and unfounded outrage from more than a few of the guests in the store that there were times were I literally felt personally embarrassed to be at the event, and to this day question whether or not I feel like going there for E3 2014.
I know it was only a minority of people acting up, but imagine having to be subjected to watching something like this phone call unfold RIGHT IN FRONT OF YOU. Its super uncomfortable and embarrassing.
I also know this is a general problem with human misbehavior, but stuff like this makes gamers look bad, and makes Nintendo fans look bad. :/

Is that giant shell to hide a Super Nintendo and TV necessary?
This strikes me as a bit anachronistic since by the time Gold and Silver were out in the US, the Super NES seemed like ancient history.
Heck, the SNES references in Pokémon Red and Blue struck me as a “throwback” at the time.
But actually this console is pretty useful, it lets Nintendo/GameFreak transport and set up the entire unit for events or lease it out to retailers to put in their stores much easier than if they carried around a Super Famicom, a TV, and whatever special equipment the game cartridge is being inserted into, and I’m guessing this is CUSTOM hardware given as Pokémon Crystal (to my knowledge) can’t normally interface with the Super NES via the Super GameBoy or anything like that.
I’m guessing this has some relation to why the Super GameBoy frame on the monitor says “Gold Version” when the cartridge being used is very plainly Crystal Version.
I just confirmed a stock SNES can’t play Pokémon Crystal through the Super GameBoy. I did get a really cute specific error message, though. The word Crystal in the error was spelled out with Unown. Here it is on an emulator:

And a separate post in honor of the dude who won it all by correctly predicting the Nintendo DS would have a touch screen only hours after its announcement, and five months before it’s E3 2004 reveal.
Excuse me, just laughing at more of the kneejerk negative reactions to the announcement of the Nintendo DS a decade back.
We need THESE in Zelda games from now on for grottos and so on.
Because they make a hell of a lot more sense than believing that Link would jump into a deep hole in a remote location with no rope or later to escape from and absolutely no reason to expect to be able to get out.
(also, ain’t this a pretty photograph)
“Two screens..nice try Nintencrap.”
“Third parties aren’t going to make games for this, nintendo is stupid and they are going to go down like sega”
“who’s gonna want dual screens? sounds like a dumb idea to me…”
“ WORST IDEA EVERRRRR.”
"I will speak personally for myself that I am disappointed. I was hoping for something that would live up to the hype Nintendo was creating themselves. I am praying that this is a hoax and not the real thing. Its a sad sad day in my mind and I’ve been die hard Nintendo fan since 1984.”
“Nintendo is afraid that Sony is going to kick their butts in yet another game marktet so they come out with this stop gap device, it wont work.”
“Nintendo knows they’re screwed, PSP is better than the DS in every way imaginable, DS is just an updated GBA with the same crappy graphics and power.”
