    Nintendo's Strained Relationship with its Biggest Fans ft. CelloKat & Katie Shesko

    Nintendo's Strained Relationship with its Biggest Fans ft. CelloKat & Katie Shesko

    We’re joined by video game music artists CelloKat and Katie Shesko to discuss Nintendo’s often combative relationship with content creators. Nintendo has been shutting down fan games, emulation sites, YouTube channels, and sheet music distributors, often through use of DMCA, or the Digital Millenium Copyright Act. Why is Nintendo so aggressive and protective of its IP? We also go over the gaming and Nintendo news, including Nintendo’s shareholder meeting, SEGA’s announcements about the new Crazy Taxi game, SGDQ, Xbox app coming to Amazon Fire TV, and much more. As always, we close with the games we’ve all been playing. Listen to Super Switch Headz on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, YouTube or wherever you enjoy podcasts.
