  1. It’s cool that Nintendo aren’t letting the legacy of Nintendo Power die, but Nintendo’s PR team are cringy as hell. I can never get myself to watch more than 10 minutes of any treehouse stream.

    1. Treehouse people aren’t necessarily PR people. As I’ve understood, the people playing the games on the Treehouse Live streams are actual localizers etc. people who work on the games, not PR people. They aren’t trained to be on camera. They are natural.
