Wouldn't you think sending Mario to shoot fireballs at Bowser would be more effective?

A new Bowser vs Bowser challenge emerges

I don't understand Nintendo's approach to open source these days. If these people are making a product consumers enjoy, hire them. Some of the most weirdly fun games for the original NES (especially Famicom in Asia) we're made by third party modders.

I really have no idea why Nintendo keeps getting a free pass.  It's easily the most anti-consumer of the Big 3 and is notoriously litigious.

Because, they are going after people pirating their software.

Which would happen a lot less if Nintendo stopped forcing people to buy games they already own over and over again with each new system.

Are people hacking switches to play squirt gun mario and twilight princess, or talking hat mario and breath of the wild?

I agree with your point somewhat. I should have access to a digital version of the game on both systems it is released on. Though, it really isn't hard to plug multiple systems into a tv either. Aside from maybe mario kart, nobody is forced to buy multiple copies.

This is trying to deflect the recent lawsuit filed against Nintendo by Krystal for defamation of character, isn't it?

I like how you can buy phantasy star 1 for 5.99 ON SALE on the switch store. Also a bunch of SEGA arcade ports individually for that generous price.

Nope, not a bundle. Wouldn't you like to play Alex Kidd or Space Harrier for $9.99?

You own a game designed for a specific piece of hardware, not for every iteration of hardware the company produces.

You buy what you buy and get what you get.

But don't pretend BC and digital carryover isn't a thing in the game industry, console or otherwise.

A super villain would be able to bring about the end of all things by tricking the Nintendo, Disney, and Games Workshop legal teams into squaring off against one another.

I should have clarified my comment was about digital copies.

What a weird reply. I'm entitled for saying two of the major consoles offer BC?

Your reading comprehension sucks or you are just looking for an enemy.

Steam and gog and the like sell games you can use after upgrades. Microsoft and Sony's newest consoles both include past digital purchases. These are facts. It isn't entitlement to push for nintendo to follow suit.

Those are features and offerings from another company, not from Nintendo. People that do not like that Nintendo does not offer that feature are not entitled to break Nintendo's products and make profits off of that action.

If only. They go after people who develop exploits to run legal homebrew on their hardware. They go after fans who release freeware tributes to their games. They go after streamers and Youtubers who show footage of them playing their games and their own promotional videos. If it's related to Nintendo in any way then Nintendo assumes full ownership of it and will both use and abuse any mechanism available to them to enforce that.

Jim Sterling's position on Nintendo is more extreme than my own, but I have to admit that they have a point.

Agreed. Are you confusing me with the other poster?

Try rereading the thread.

Can you go a little further on your "open source" idea?  I don't understand what in the article is referencing it.
