androidlove is an unknown quantity at this point

World Tour Christmas Calibration

How many kids were disappointed? How many kids never found out there was a solution? How many kids didn't have the hardware to implement the solution?

Is that a Nintendo Seal I see?

"Originally, for NTSC countries, the seal was a large, black and gold circular starburst. The seal read as follows: "This seal is your assurance that NINTENDO has approved and guaranteed the quality of this product." This seal was later altered in 1988; "approved and guaranteed" was changed to "evaluated and approved". In 1989, the seal became gold and white, like it currently appears, with a shortened phrase, "Official NINTENDO Seal of Quality". The symbol remained unchanged until 2003 when "of Quality" was removed."

The title is misleading.

i don't really see the issue. back in the 80s when the NES was pretty much pioneering all things console gaming the seal of quality served a great purposed. back then anyone could make a game and sell it. most of these unlicensed games were horrible and oftentimes unplayable. Nintendo's seal of quality showed that you were truly getting a good product.

however today this quality is pretty much assumed by all gamers, so there's no need to brandish it upon titles.

Wow, so glad I banned this guy.

Anyways, yes, I agree that Nintendo's seal isn't what it used to be. They would probably give me a nice seal, if I ever made a game, and as long as it's a collection of minigames, they wouldn't doubt its quality for a second.

I wonder how long they actually play the games before giving them the seal of quality.

Yes, but why would I? There's nothing positive I can say about this individual.
