In fairness, a lot of what people attribute to artificial scarcity has been wrong, because it makes no sense from a business standpoint. The recent Mario thing is definitely a bonehead move from them, but I suspect the 3D games are being released on their own soonish, even if I think it would've benefitted them more if they had said so first. Like "get the physical version, limited edition, only digital later" or something.
Another thing I see people beat Nintendo with is their DMCA of fan games, which I think is just viewed in the wrong way. AM2R for instance was allowed to release before they DMCA'd it, same with the Pokémon game, meaning they let it out on the internet on purpose. Had they really not wanted them to be made they would've stopped them dead in their tracks before that.
GOG is really good in that way, yea. I don't use the launcher at all, but I get it, not everyone has the storage space for all of their games. Regarding Steam I could definitely see someone over there "accidentally" leaking info on how to make a client to act as the DRM Steam is for most games.
We'll see. I'm intrigued by CK3, so maybe once I've had my fill of my backlog for a bit I'll get to it.>>42167496

I used to emulate SEGA as a teenager, but always fell back on good ol' Nintendo.
I don't think I played past the first level of Doom then. I was also alone, and it was late, so I can't imagine I had the guts then. But not too long after that, I became a Quake head.
>You mean if we get one?
There's no certainty, but I trust Retro to make a good game, and it seems like Nintendo knows it shouldn't be rushed, so hopefully it'll end up good. Doubt it'll get cancelled, however.
I just can't. I know it's not their fault, but I grew up with raggare and other tryhards shoving Sabaton in my face every which way, so I just cringe when I hear them.
