About Dalton McClain

A gamer at heart, and a creator by trade. As a shy kid who grew up in a small town, my only solace was with the games that I enjoyed playing. That being said I enjoy just about every type of game, but more than anything I love playing horror/unique games. I look forward to sharing my knowledge of the strange and unusual with the world.

    Prehaps the new one will them hiring prostitutes and shitting on your consumers is bad for PR?

  • Mr0303

    After the Wii U and all their recent blunders they need a miracle maker.

    • catazxy

      With the wii U they were overconfident in the popularity of the Wii brand, but moms and kids had no interests in it, hence the Switch advert focused grown up people-that actually buy the damn things. I just hope we see less censoring of games, perhaps a region free console, with a healthy 3rd party support.

    • Mr0303

      I too am glad that they are now marketing to gamers and (hopefully) realised that casuals are not a stable market.

      No region lock is the biggest point for most gamers I would imagine. I have very little hope that they’d stop censoring stuff for the West.

    • No_Good_Names_Ever

      I don’t think NoA were overconfident in the Wii brand so much as they’re a bunch of imbeciles.

  • catazxy

    Call me nintendo, I’m up to the job! My first decision is to smash the Treehouse. That’s it.

    • Mr0303

      You have my vote.

  • MusouTensei

    I see it coming, they will hire some non binary transracial gender studies graduate marxist and its Twitter account will be Manveer Heir levels of disgusting.

    • No_Good_Names_Ever

      At least in our current recovering timeline; there option of firing tumblertards isn’t off the table anymore.

  • No_Good_Names_Ever

    I have too much self respect; yes it’s barely any but it’s still leagues higher than anyone in Treehoiuse.
