Nintendo Co., Ltd. and Intelligent Systems Co., Ltd. have applied for a new “Information processing” patent (特開2019-180720) in Japan. The patent aims to improve interest in a multiplayer game taking into account virtual points performed by a plurality of users belonging to a plurality of teams. No specific title is alluded to in the 37 page document other than just a “battle game”, with this patent based on the result of said battle game, adding the scores of the virtual area for each team. A determination is then performed on the basis of this score, which is stored in the storage device. After this has been performed a plurality of times, the result of the multiplayer game is then satisfied. The patent also states that its description is merely illustrative, and various modifications and variations may be made.

I just wanted to give an update on getting my joycon drift getting fixed by Nintendo.  I don’t think anyone else has on your show.  I never really minded the drift on my joycon until I realized Grid Autosport and Ashpalt 9 were unplayable with the drift.  I actually requested my joycon fixed back in July when Nintendo first started the program, but never wanted to be without my controller until now.  I sent my controller to Nintendo with their free shipping label on Tuesday 10/14.  On Sunday 10/20 I was emailed letting me know that my controller as fixed and they were going to overnight mail it back to me.  After waiting until Thursday10/24 and not receiving the controller back I contacted customer support.  They said they would have to look into why it was not shipping and it might take two weeks.  I was really bummed, because I was only able to play single joycon games.  Luckily, I came home from work the next day and it was sitting on my front porch.  I was sent back the same joycon that I sent them, so it was repaired, not replaced.  Minus that holdup on the shipping back, it was very easy and free.

Hey Bill… my best video game related gift memory was a few years back,
the girl I was dating at the time surprised me with a birthday gift. We
were already in Montreal and she lead me out one evening not telling me
where we were going. A few metro and bus ride stops later, we walked to
a building and I agreed to avert and hide my eyes to save the surprise
to the last minute. It turned out she got us tickets for a live Zelda
orchestra concert which was absolutely amazing. She was a video game
lover but more Pokemon and hadn’t really ever played much Zelda, so this
was all for me. I was 13yo all over again with a big grin the whole time
and getting rather emotional.

Sadly, a few years later I did have to end that relationship for reasons
I won’t get into, but I still think fondly upon that moment and hope to
one day meet a new relationship with someone who is as considerate and
appreciates video games that much.

New Patent for a Pro Controller?

Win a Luigi statue

Game looks great but what a goofy commercial.

Nintendo is Nintendo because of our games, characters and IP. So giving our teams the freedom to experiment with new ideas is something I strongly agree with. Expansion can’t happen without the freedom to try something new, and the courage to step into unfamiliar territory.

Shuntaro Furukawa

In terms of monetization, that’s something that we decided on an app basis, It’s something we decide looking at the game content of each app, as well as the IP used and the player that we’re targeting. We also look at how we can best have the players enjoy the game, as well as how they would be comfortable in spending money.

Hello bill, been following you for some time now, love your content, and your effort.. thanks for making a difference in the Nintendo community… my question for you is, a while back you had the creator of the game DING DONG XL, on your podcast.. he had mentioned there was an Easter egg, or some type of secret in the game, he didn’t say, and you didn’t pry? But since the game has been out for a while, was that secret ever revealed ? Respect everything you do.

Email from James

Maybe you’ve seen this, but this is a deep Kotaku article about eshop sales that is worth a read.

Email from Kaylee

Hey Bill,
A word of warning for international folks like me!
I have multiple accounts on my Switch, all of which are registered on different eShops in different regions. I buy games based on price, language availability and release date, but to play them all, I only ever use my main Japanese account. It has both Nintendo Switch Online, as well as all of my save data.
I knew about the limitations of having multiple Switches, including the hassles around save data, but I thought that since I’m the only one playing, it would be fine, especially since my old Switch was to remain docked & connected to the internet as a secondary device.
I was rereading the procedure on how to register my new Switch Lite as my Primary console when it hit me: digital games can *only* be played using the account they were purchased with, meaning that I would be locked out of my save data on my main account for any digital games not purchased on the Japanese eShop…
Needless to say, this *significantly* reduces my desire to own a 2nd Switch. Only being able to play a percentage of the games I have bought & paid for, or be forced to juggle multiple accounts & friends lists (and pay for Nintendo Switch Online in multiple regions!) is just not workable for me. (Not to mention that the Switch Lite’s screen has a noticeably warmer tint which did not appeal to me…)
So less than an hour after bringing it home, I decided to sell my Switch Lite… (Alas, Japanese stores don’t really accept returns, so I’m going to take a hit, but what can you do?)
I hope this helps someone else out there like me!
