Mario Kart Tour has microtransactions.

I thought Nintendo was better than this.

This is like watching a childhood friend fall in with a bad crowd and get hooked on drugs.

Yeah all their mobile stuff has been microtransacgion heavy. I was tempted by Dr. Mario but it annoyed the hell out of me . I won't be touching the Mario Kart one.

Edit so I don't double post: I think Mario Kart 9 might be coming soon. I know that they make gangbusters on 8 Deluxe still but that was still a port and they don't have any marquee games coming after Animal Crossing aside from Zelda and Metroid, and who the hell knows when those are coming out.

I haven't been interested in Nintendo's mobile games too much, I stopped even trying them. I don't think microtransactions in mobile games are necessarily a bad thing though, as long as there's a viable f2p component. I think the ideal way to do something like Mario Kart would be to give one boring character and one boring track and then charge for the rest.

the one gacha game i play regularly is well-known for being terribly unfair and grindy and is really the biggest reason i don't play other mobile games that much

That sounds a lot like DBZ: Dokkan. It's pretty much the only thing I play except for when there's nothing going on in the game or the timer (stamina) is out.

I've seen most of what's on Netflix, but at this point I just sort of pick episodes where the plot sounds like it'll be particularly good.

Isn't the target demographic for that show like 4-9 year old girls? Not trying to hate on anyone's interests but like what are you guys talking about? Is there something in the show that makes it fan worthy for adults?
