Yeah, they're getting rightfully reamed for it.

And remember, "I'm-a Luigi, number one!"

The first Fire Emblem game will have an official English translation, but will only be available for a limited time.

Why does every good thing Nintendo makes come with a catch?

^There's a rumor going around about how these games are going to be added to a greater Nintendo service in the future and these limited physical releases are basically a way to milk money out of a product they know they can sell.

Do people watch Let's Plays instead of playing a game for the same reason people watch a sports game instead of playing the sport?

^If the humor in that question was intentional, then I applaud you, sir. :)

Let's Plays, at least in their most common format, are generally more about the person/people playing the game than the game itself. For instance, you've got your shows like Game Grumps where people tune in to listen to the hosts crack jokes and talk about stuff, and the gameplay is a secondary element that gives them things to react to or simply serve as a visual component.

There's also Let's Plays with no commentary, which are inherently more focused on the game. I have to imagine a lot of people watch these to help with progress in their own playthrough, or checking a game out before buying. Though I've used longplays as something just to have on in the background before.

But also I can't say that no one watches Let's Plays as a substitute for playing the games themselves, because I have admittedly done this with Telltale's Back to the Future game (which is really more of an interactive movie in the style of many of Telltale's games, so you really can get like 95% of the experience this way).

I don't watch Let's Plays, so I don't know.

^^I've done it with the Mother trilogy, but that's because (a) I was never gonna actually buy those games anyway given my distaste for turn-based battles, & (b) one of them has never & likely will never be available for me to buy.

I think Vine was better than TikTok.

Vine just felt more genuine than TikTok.

vine forced the idea of brevity being the soul of wit. tiktoks can go on a lot longer which introduces more opportunities to **** up the pacing

The big thing that bugged me with Vine was the autoplay/autoloop.

the most annoying thing about tiktok is it's music. genuinely terrible music recycled over and over and OVER AND OVER

Watching an old FilthyFrank video.
