Say you were me,
Then you could see the view,
You’ll know we are equally damaged,
Don’t be a fool, make it easier,
You’ll learn to say when,
Signal if you can’t say, “no more.”
The first portion of this video is some performative yelling about weapon durability, specifically in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

In the Far Long Ago of 2012, Nintendo released the Wii U. It was a good machine that failed because Nintendo is Nintendo and thought sheer arrogance could sell a console. It’s also the place Miiverse was born, an inbuilt social media service that I, for one, thought was a bloody brilliant idea.
So brilliant, in fact, Nintendo just had to fuck up and reveal it’s not coming to the Switch. Because of course.
To commemorate Nintendo’s decision to not continue with a good idea, I took a trip down memory lane so we could talk about the Miiverse’s most important contribution to society, and still a far better use of the Rabbids Land section.
