If you love Nintendo and their games, it's a good idea to remember that they don't reciprocate. The more you love them, the more they want to hurt you.
The latest demonstration of Nintendo's loathing for its most ardent fans[*1] : they shut down a fan remake of the twenty-five year old game Metroid II: The Return of Samus called AM2R.
The people behind AM2R have been working on this labour of love since 2012. Just as it was about to be released, Nintendo decided to shut it down, citing completely bogus trademark issues.
