    Want Zelda. Don't want a Switch. Want a Wii U even less.
    Maybe if I get some spare money...

    This is a simply clever idea. Like the stuff to 'help' you stopping biting your nails. Don't want the little un's swallowing Zelda and popping their clogs!

    Re: Nintendo Switch cartridges are designed to taste bad

    I love the taste of denatonium benzoate early in the mornin'

    Good idea though. We can now play who can hold the cartridge in their mouth the longest

    I'd guess that something gives them a bit of a sharp edge.

    Re: Nintendo Switch cartridges are designed to taste bad

    I can confirm how bad it tastes..and how long that bad taste lasts for. Zelda arrived at work today, and being a software company of course everyone had read about what Nintendo had done to the carts..someone had to do it. so bitter and foul tasting - clever move by Nintendo

    I'm never doing it again lol, 12 hours later and I can still taste it.

    The game however is amazing, and has proven to be a great distraction for 6 of those 12 hours

    A good idea given how small cartridges are now-a-days
