    Kind of hope Sony and Microsoft eats at Nintendo's sales so they stop being douche bags

    What issues have people had this generation? Which store policies? Timed 3rd party exclusives aren’t anti-consumer but if I was still a Nintendo fan I would probably be sick too.

    Are they? Nintendo hasn't been forcing developers to adhere to bullshit censoring practices to satisfy their SJW agenda. Censorship of ridiculous things, and not just sexual or adult content, either, pretty much anything that could potentially offend people. They're extremely selective about what gets censored, too. And they've been making ridiculous demands of developers to meet certain publication "standards."
    A lot of developers, many once Sony-exclusive, have jumped ship. That's why a lot of IPs that were PlayStation-only are now getting ports on PC and other consoles. And as far as crossplay is concerned, only a few games are even allowed such because they kowtowed to Sony's demands. One of my friends said that some devs even pay royalties to Sony, along with adhering to strict rules, just so their games can have crossplay. A lot of games do have that feature already built-in, but Sony has to approve it for the players to even access it. Just look at Fortnite.
    Sony has their heads stuck so far up their asses, they actually think their multiplayer service network is superior to all else, yet the idiots can't even fix it properly when it has issues. PlayStation Video has been broken since September. Thousands of players flocked to Sony's support and various subs on Reddit, complaining about constant PSN errors popping up while playing games, even single-player ones. Ever since they relocated their headquarters to California, they've been making all kinds of bad choices. They cut off web browser-side purchases for their older consoles, and eliminated the wishlist feature for even PS4 users, yet they've done nothing to improve the garbage PSN Store console-side. And now there's the party chat moderation/recording fiasco. Seriously making a lot of people reconsider purchasing a PS5, myself included.

    Well, the way Sony's been behaving as of late, they're bound to lose a lot of customers.

    Their refund policy is a joke. The second you download the game, your right to a refund is null and void. At least with Steam, you can try the game out, and refund it, no questions asked, if your play time is less than two hours (and even then, if it's gone over, you can still contact them and try to get one regardless).

    Had sometime to think about this.As well it's a mixed bag for so many reasons.

    Pros;
    While one part cool, as for FE fan I still see something cool here to be experienced.
    6$ is not a massive amount.
    Also the Collectors edition looks cool.

    Perhaps the major of cons;
    But the whole limited time release is pure bs. Nintendo needs to get the hell of the FOMO train and return to the lovely Japanese juggernaut most of us have special place for in their heart.

    What they also could have done;
    Also I still think this would have been a great bonus release for people who bought the FE Three Houses Expansion Pass. Doing some fan service like that can go a really long way.

    Surprised Nintendo is not giving with NSO but it is only $6. I'm not a big fan of this Disney Vault style Nintendo is doing.

    I'm not a big Fire Emblem fan, I know a lot are. But I wish they would localize Mother 3 we've only been asking for it for 15 years.

    I just read they were working on a localization last year but the game is controversial so they dropped it and probably never will localize it.

    What do you mean by "controversial"? As in content, or that the original game could not make the publishing company enough money to be commercially viable?

    I'll probably buy the digital release to show Nintendo that I want Virtual Console on the Switch.

    If you really want to play the game, go with fan translation.

    Huh. So the problem is that people are too easily offended.

    Probably.

    There are also other aspects of the game that are controversial.

    Oh dear; this is why it could be better for Shigesato Itoi to publish a game like this to another platform, preferably beginning with PC, if only that company could decouple itself from Nintendo. Unfortunately, that can never happen since that game is considered to be 2nd-party Nintendo exclusive.

    I read that Nintendo was working on bringing it to U.S. but parts of the story were too controversial so they canned the project.

    I have not played it so I can't agree or deny that it's too controversial. It's just something I read on Google.

    I guess people already covered it between this post and yours.

    The game literally features a series of character who are stereotypes of Okama (cross-dressers), with strong homosexual undertone. That alone is already much, for the company who had to censor Jinx because it looked like a racial stereotype (while it was in fact based on a Japanese folkloric monster), but to top it off, one of these character rape Lucas (a child) in a blacked out cutscene.

    That really seems to be the kind of stuff that would be unorthodoxical to the family-friendly brand that Nintendo promotes.
    In the case of the 1st Fire Emblem game (the subject of this thread), I notice that, unlike the more recent games that have a 'Teen' rating from the ESRB, this one has has an 'Everyone' rating. I bet that technical limitations of the NES/Famicom prevented it from ending up with content that would bump up the rating. By coincidence, FE1 fits into the family-friendly brand promoted by Nintendo. If this explanation isn't worded well enough, feel free to reword it better.

    Well do you see the Magypsies' looks and the "oxygen machines" that are males with big lips? Nintendo is trying to not offend the LGBT community. But they had to change the sprites of them for a North America release. Like change the Magypsies with a male body into males, change the Magypsies with a female body into females, change the "oxygen machines" into robots and get rid of the kissing sound, or change them all into spirits. It's that simple. Also remember when Fassad uses a shock collar when Salsa doesn't follow his orders? PETA would see that and say "Last time it's a tanooki suit (Super Mario 3D Land) and animals fighting each other (Pokémon), now it's this". Nintendo probably has had enough with PETA. Should've been changed to Fassad scolding Salsa. But the biggest part of the game is the theme. It's anti-capitalist. The story starts in a town without capitalism. The Pigmasks came along, which are capitalists. Yet it's like Lucas and co. are fighting capitalism. This is a HUGE offense for not only the US government but every other capitalist government.

    Is no one gonna mention that this is also only available till March 31st? Something strange is going on here. I should point out April 1st is the start of the new fiscal year. They also have no releases announced past February. I don't think that's a coincidence, they're doing something, restructuring maybe. Though I'm upset enough with them that at this point I kinda hope they're dissolving.

    Sorry if I pushed this thread OT in my previous posts (probably sounded too harsh but my honest opinion) but responding to this last post on the subject.
    No offence but I would consider checking your sources because there’s very little truth in those first five paragraphs. Obvious anti-PS bs, couple of criticisms/issues spun into fictional stories re: massive problems and very little else.
    I wouldn’t bet on that unless I wanted to lose all my money.
    You're comparing PlayStation (console) to PC.

    P.S Console games are being ported to PC because they are built/developed on PC, compatible, it’s business and there is demand.
