    That is so beautiful it makes me feel like an ass if I were to hack the Switch. RIP :iwata: (← we need an Iwata emoji)

    Only Nintendo can nerf a word like "Flog" and make it family friendly. RIP to the original flog.

    Holy smokes, this was real? As in, you can actually play this? That's mind-blowingly awesome! What an amazing easter egg!

    You can't. It's only doable on 1.0 systems that have never been connected to the internet.

    If you are on 2.3 it talked to a network at some point.

    Raise both hands from your sides keeping them close to your body and kinda thrust forward like pushing someone away.

    Are you actually joking? You can clearly see he put this vid together in iMovie, use Photoshop Mix to put the Golf image on top of the screen, then added that to the end of the video with Ken Burns to make it seem like it's still rolling.

    People were mean, gbatemp standard mean.
    The OP was no snowflake though, he didn't take the ill intended posts to heart at all.
