Is All Of The Hate For The Nintendo 2DS For Good Reason?

3rd September, 2013

If you haven’t heard yet, Nintendo is launching a brand new handheld in October that takes the concept of the Nintendo 3DS and crunches it down into a 2D sidekick. Nintendo fans are two things, if nothing else: loyal and critical. Nintendo supporters absolutely love the brand, and that love can sometimes look a lot like hate when Nintendo pushes out a product that fans feel aren’t up to their standards. Is the Nintendo 2DS going to be the next flop? It can’t be that bad, but the internet is buzzing with negativity.

9th August, 2013

I don’t think you or I need to look at any official statistics to come to the conclusion that AOL Instant Messenger has been on a bit of a slope for the past few years.
