A Look Back At The Dafoeverse, Miiverse’s Unofficial Willem Dafoe Fan Community

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.

Thoughts On The Nintendo Switch Presentation

Nintendo ContentID claimed this video so I’m now presenting this as Jimquisition Dot Com material. I’ll benefit off this somehow!

Anyway, here are my initial thoughts on the presentation from last night. It was an okay presentation.

As far as what I think of some of the details that emerged after the presentation… just wait until Monday. Nintendo delivered the goods as far as material.

The Jimquisition: Nintendo’s Virtual Console Is Trash Garbage

With Pokemon Snap finally arriving on the North American Wii U Virtual Console, it’s time to get something off my incredible tits.

Let’s talk about Nintendo’s terrible VC release structure.

(PS – Apologies for the ad. For some reason Chains of Love no longer reliably gets flagged and deadlocks the ContentID bots being deployed by Nintendo, who elected to monetize this video. I am appealing it, obviously. In future I’ll have to throw a few more deadlocks out to properly safeguard against game companies’ disrespect of fair use.)

The Jimquisition: Nintendo – A Shit Distributor And Fuckheaded Toymaker

Nintendo’s manufactured scarcity is a commonly known deal, and it’s just getting beyond ludicrous.

The NES Classic is the latest farce, shipping to stores in pitiful numbers despite well-known demand.

Basically, Nintendo’s a fucked up toymaker thinking everything it makes is a goddamn Hatchimal, whatever the hell THAT is!

Why Ekans Is The Best Pokémon

Thanks to the release of Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon, there are now officially 774 known Pokémon in the world. That’s a lot. A lot of Pokémon.

With so many unique and varied pocket monsters out there, it can be hard to separate the wheat from the chaff and determine which creatures are the best.

Not really, though. Ekans is the best Pokémon, and that’s simply a fact.

Ekans is absolute. I cannot stop thinking about Ekans. Some of you may believe this to be a forced meme that never took off in 2010 and certainly won’t gain traction with a reworked six-year-old repost… but I’m sincere in my Ekans love!

Let me prove it. Let me prove Ekans is the best Pokémon of all Pokémon to ever be in Pokémon.

Let’s jump aboard the Nintendo Switch content train and hump it. Hump it until our genitals bleed!

Seriously though, we’re talking about Nintendo’s marketing this week, and the importance of visual communication when selling a product.

Also, #PerformanceMatters n’ stuff!
