Is Nintendo becoming like EA?

from the standpoint of more time and effort spent on rehashes and minor gameplay enhancements to virtually the same game, yes... their first party titles seem to be in favor of playing it safe vs innovation.

yes there are a few exceptions- and I'm holding out hope for the future- but so far I agree with the TC that this is the trend we're looking at.

I've got no problem with DLC.
DLC is just another word for "expansion".

What I have a problem with is when EA enacts DRM and when you comply and do everything you're suppose to, you still can't play the game you bought from them, because they chose to save-a-buck and only set up a few servers.
And when you can't play your game that you legitimately paid for, just because they can't check that you're not stealing every second, they refuse to give you a refund.
They tell you to "suck it".

They steal your money and give you nothing back, perfect okay, so long as they are making sure that you are not stealing from them.

In short, no TC, you're wrong.
Nintendo is no where near EA.

All online stores are equally inferior to Steam.
Similar titles are why people go to Nintendo, you know that you like Pokemon, why would they drastically change it in any way?
Not a fan of subscription fees, so just don't pay it.
Wind Waker and OoT are MASTERPIECES. They deserve restoration. I want to see more of that.

I think the TC is wrong, but this is even worse

DLC may not me the "greatest evil in gaming" like some claim, and the practice may not be that old

all the same, most of the time I dislike DLC, even when done correctly

What were the recent games from EA that did that?

Also saying how the console stores are inferior to a PC store doesn't change that eshop is worse for consoles.
Do you use that same argument for CoD? "people like the game so why change it?"
The point of mentioning subscription services is to point out that they have them. Just because you don't have to pay isn't the point.
Whether or not they are masterpieces, they are still pretty much the same games as he mentioned.

At least the re-releases are at least 10 years old unlike a certain other remaster.

This guy gave some great insight on DLC and how Day One DLC can happen.
