    This week, we dive into Nintendo's psyche, trying to find a reason for what they've done: banned a Melee online tournament, took legal action against an RCM Loader seller, and released an update for the 3DS. Joining us on this podcast is Eric, who was late last episode playing Masters of Melodies, or whatever. We also discuss the new Capcom leaks, which are from the ransomware attack we discussed in earlier episodes, along with some titles that might be coming from the publisher in the next five years. IO announced development of a James Bond game, so we talk about how we've never played a Hitman game, but how well that gameplay would work with 007. The Game Awards released its nomination list, so we speculate as to who might win, and recorded our predictions.

    Why the fuck is Nintendo banning an online tournament?

    At this point, people should just keep it underground, outside of Big N's ears. If the way Nintendo has been acting as of late is any indication, then that's the only way the the stuff that enthusiasts will be able to enjoy Nintendo products.

    Nintendo is not banning Big House's Smash Ultimate tournament. BH cancelled it themselves because Smash Melee is the main event, which unfortunately cancelled after they didn't back down from order.

    Please do a bit more prep research before podcast.

    Nintendo are unfair and once they have your money they just don’t care how they treat people

    This is a tough one the device is a loader but it comes loaded with modified os images

    If it didn’t have the images I can see the case getting thrown out because you can argue it’s a tool to repair broken systems

    but unlike SX which went to the point of linking actual stolen software not sure what a judge would do but maybe not allow the sale in certain countries or ask the manufacturer to remove the software

    But isn't that how it was told by media?

    I remember reading the letter sent by Nintendo:

    "illegally copied versions of the game"
    Nintendo seems to think if they keep saying ripping your games is illegal that it'll eventually become true. Nintendo is the absolute worst for this shit, thank god they protected themselves from all the profit losses this tournament would have caused from people legally ripping their games that Nintendo hasn't sold for 10+ years.

    I mean I agree in theory, but how many people playing melee are actually using their own rip?

    I'd imagine the pro players would be willing to learn of any legal way to get their game ripped onto a HDD of some kind. I mean, if the following video is anything to go off of, they value playing on and with "legit" hardware as much as possible. Let's just say there's a reason I have legit in quotes:

    It's true that most people will use a rip that isn't their own and it's not impossible that a professional would also use a rip from online. I'd like to assume that most professionals would be using their own rip or at the very least own the game from playing on real hardware.

    At the end of the day Nintendo is gonna do this kind of shit regardless of if you're legally obtaining the game because the people making these decisions on Nintendo's side are clueless. It really baffles me that a decision like this happens. Nintendo makes 0 money from melee as it stands except from people potentially being introduced to the newer games through it. I really don't know what the upside they see to taking this action is but the vast amount of downsides are very clear and it really ruins peoples image of Nintendo.

    If we see a Melee release on the eShop sometime soon then that would explain this but I'd be surprised.

    I don't think they have plans to release Meele for the Switch but whatever.

    Maybe a hot take but Nintendo distancing themselves from the gross smash community after all the drama they pulled is a smart move lol

    What drama? Nintendo doesn't want people to play Nintendo games they have not bought, and it doesn't want people to keep playing an old game when a newer game is for sale.

    After all Nintendo would be more thn hapy if people were making Tournaments with the Switch game instead.

    I'm referring to this situation

    And the tournament that was cancelled did have Ultimate featured as well, it was still not allowed to continue.
