Comments

  • FE-3H – DLC farming probably
    No Mans Sky – Really? must be a form of money farming.
    Chrono Cross Remaster – make the game playable on the Switch? probably not making it an improvement
    XB3 – is it a good game?, the previous had issues – did they learn something, again DLC likely??
    Mother/Earthbound – Sub farming method, shame on you Nintendo
    Mario Kart 8 – more DLC money farming
    Front Mission – remade?, likely ported in some way, not much of an improvement to game

    Sounds like everyone follows what is now standard practice (lets farm money from DLC) in stead of producing full worthwile games.
