Nintendo and has solidified my theory that they are a company full of brilliant artists, designers and technicians that, at some point, got infiltrated by a mob of brain-damaged, glue-eating lemurs that somehow got entrusted with 50% of the company’s decision making.

Non-Lemur: Hey, let’s make a sweet console/handheld hybrid gaming system!

Lemur: And let’s make our notoriously garbage-tier online service paid now!

NL: Oh. Well, at least throw in a free game each month like Sony and MS do.

L: Ok, but it has to be an SNES game and it can only be played for one month and then the customer has to buy it. *wipes glue from mouth*

NL: Ah. Ok. Well, at least we’ve got this friggin’ amazing Zelda game as a launch title! What else can we fill out the launch lineup with?

L: Um... Just Dance? And some other stuff...

NL: Alright, well at least we’ll be carrying on the tradition of Nintendo consoles being family/multiplayer centric. Still a great party console!

L: Extra side-controllers will be $80 ($50 individually), an extra dock will be $90, and a pro controller will be $70. *opens second glue bottle*
