Super Train Station H

This is cool. If I had a girlfriend I’d totally get her this.

Ha ha!

Apparently there are actually people claiming Mario Kart 8’s screenshots are FMV cutscenes, or have been “photoshopped” to look better than the game will actually look.

I can’t believe people are so obsessed with the notion of Wii U having N64 quality graphics that anything resembling “good” graphics just HAS to be faked.

The Wii U is literally selling worse than the Dreamcast, what are you trying to prove at this point?

At first glance I honestly thought someone just pasted a cropped photograph of a Substitute Pokédoll into the screenshot as a joke.

I just realized, I can find myself in this picture.

…we are playing fairly differently to Nintendo 3DS, when you think that is a dedicated handheld device with a very strong showing amongst kids. Vita is positioned differently. Yes it appeals to kids but also to committed gamers…

- Sony’s latest excuse for why 3DS is outselling PS Vita

I like how I learn that some loudmouth from Sony had to pull the “But Nintendo 3DS owners aren’t serious, they’re just little kids, so Vita’s still better even if 3DS outsells it” bullshit out the deepest reaches of their ass the same day I reminisce about the positive experience I had owning the PSP in spite of all the shit Sony was talking about how DS was just a kids toy and how the real gamers would abandon Nintendo’s “portable gaming ghetto” and flock to PSP instead.

I thought this shit was going to stop once Jack Tretton left Sony along with all his comments about adult 3DS owners lacking self respect.

Seriously Sony, you’re demoting the good will and reputation of the PlayStation brand by continuing to diss potential customers who own competing systems but might be willing to branch out if you reached out to them rather than call their self respect or dedication to gaming into question.

 - Angry Gamer Calls Nintendo Tech Support
20 plays

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. :/

(I’m not linking to the source of this audio, as the original version as published by the caller himself reveals the his name and phone number)

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:

Nintendoomed? A look at Nintendo’s financials.

Ten minutes well spend in my opinion.

I forgot all about this old gem until a few days ago.

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&#8217;s E3&#160;2004 reveal.
