[up] Sorry, I don't remember anything as transparently cashgrabbing as TES Blades, otherwise known as "mictrotransactions to open lootboxes, and an awful gameplay experience otherwise" the game on the shop in the Wii days. And yeah, 'not being terribly selective' is still an issue. Not sure why you're trying to be so dismissive of it.

Iím not sure why youíre trying to blame Nintendo for another companyís game. Seems childish.

11 minute video discussion for one major Nintendo title and another one that is really niche at best.

I guess even Gamexplain aren't immune to padding things out for Youtube money.

Nintendo does technically have control over what's put on their consoles, but they have no real policy about it other than no porn or AO-rated titles. As far as I know, they've never rejected a game from their consoles for any other reason (at least, after the ESRB came about in the 90's and they stopped putting their own restrictions on game content). So it is odd to act like Nintendo is just now doing something wrong for letting a third-party put a game with shitty microtransations on their system, when there's never been any precedent for Nintendo restricting third-parties from doing that. In fact, I think there's already games with microtransations and lootboxes on the Switch right now.

I’m not sure why you’re trying to blame Nintendo for another company’s game. Seems childish.

Someone having an issue with something you don't care about isn't "childish." It isn't a matter of "blaming" anyone, dude, it's wishing that there was more quality control that would prevent something like this from going up on the store.

So it is odd to act like Nintendo is just now doing something wrong for letting a third-party put a game with shitty microtransations on their system, when there's never been any precedent for Nintendo restricting third-parties from doing that. In fact, I think there's already games with microtransations and lootboxes on the Switch right now.

Because it's the scope of the thing. As far as I know, and feel free to drum up some examples of games on Switch, TES Blades is infinitely terrible as far as microntrasactions go. Like, worse than normal for games on Nintendo systems. The game itself is awful, and the microntransactions are the entirety of the gameplay. Micotransactions alone aren't the issue. The issue is an otherwise nonexistent gameplay experience that solely exists to moneygrub. Other online storefronts have quality control issues, but Nintendo has been consistently better in that front versus, say, Steam.note

I don't know why you're putting this discussion under spoiler tags. The Switch port of Blades was officially announced.

[up] Because I didnít know the information was publicly revealed yet. Leaks, if they havenít been officially announced, are spoilers. I like to practice good spoiler etiquette since I personally hate being spoiled for things Iím excited about and donít want to do that to someone excited about new game reveals.

I genuinely don't understand how that works. It's a part of the story the company themselves are planning to show to get us interested; how is that a spoiler?

(I mean, I'm not going to complain about people using spoiler tags, because that does appear to be the custom around here. I just don't get why).

Because you're robbing someone of being able to fully experience the official reveal. Some people want to experience the hype of seeing the official announcement/trailer/images what have you, not seeing some rando write a sentence about it on some message board and kill all the hype before they can see all of the bells and whistles and get all of the information.

It's like if someone spoils a film you've been watching or book you've been reading's ending. Yeah, the writer/director etc. are planning to show you that, but that doesn't mean you wanted some jerk to kill your emotional investment before you even got to the scene in question.

I see where you're coming from, but to me, it's more like someone describing a movie trailer two days before the trailer itself hits. OK, yeah, you know what's in the trailer before you see it, but the trailer itself is just an ad.

I'm with Vampire Buddha on the idea that talking about NEWS isn't a spoiler in the vein of revealing the ending. If someone's that invested in the new things coming out, someone talking about it on a forum, one that's dedicated to talking about said news, then they can avoid the forums until they've seen the reveal.

Talking about the stuff in the directs and Nintendo events is what this thread is for. We shouldn't have to spoiler things because someone might not have heard and are disregarding what the thread topic is. That's kind of silly.

Who's even hyped enough about Blades to care? It's a port of a mobile game.

Here's hoping for Animal Crossing news (and a Yokai Watch 4 localization) tomorrow.

[up][up] Thinking about old E3's makes me miss back when E3 was televised on tv. It was so much easier too; no lag or cut-offs due to poor connections. I know Disney XD tried it last year but they either censored most of E3 or outright didn't air sections.
