    Nintendo really needs to have a big 2019 with the Switch considering how strong Sony's 2020 lineup looks with The Last of Us Part II, Ghost of Tsushima, and Death Stranding plus the PS5. So probably Metroid Prime 4, a new Pokemon RPG, and a killer 2D Zelda to sell systems. I doubt Bayonetta 3, Fire Emblem Three Houses, or Shin Megami Tensei V would be enough to ensure big hardware sales next year.

    Damn I highly recommend the Sega Genesis Classics collection. Gunstar Heroes on a handheld with a screen this nice is fucking epic. So is Sonic 1. Pretty solid collection with Sonic 1 & 2, Phantasy Star IV, Golden Axe, Comix Zone, Shinobi III and Revenge of Shinobi, Streets of Rage 1-3, and I forgot what else. Wish it had Castle of Illusion though.

    Was kind of thinking about getting this just to have on the handheld. Seems like a lot of entertainment for the money.

    Wouldn't be surprised if they dropped a Skyward Sword HD remake. I think that's the only Zelda game I played for an hour, stopped, then never played again. I just didn't care for the motion controls. In any case, they need to hurry up and release everything they had on the Wii U. Nobody bought that fuckin system yet it had all the classic games to buy.

    It has been rumored for a while, but then it was rumored heavily that there would be a Nintendo Direct today too and no dice there. It would still have motion controls I would guess. Though Switch's motion controls are a lot better than Wii's. Also they're releasing New Super Mario Bros U Deluxe tomorrow. I thought the game looked kind of crap from the reviews I had seen on Wii U but it's pretty cool so far on Switch.

    There are only four more Wii U games I'd care about seeing on Switch: namely, Super Mario 3D World, the remaster of Zelda The Wind Waker (though I still enjoy playing the Gamecube original on my BC Wii), Xenoblade Chronicles X, and Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE. Thankfully most of the rest of the top end of the Wii U library is on Switch now.

    Did you ever get an NES/SNES Classic? The SNES is hard to find now but I still see the NES Classics available. What's really cool is NES Classic comes with the Famicom Disk System BIOS so you can add FDS games to it too, such as Zelda 1 with much better sound, Metroid with better sound, Yume Koujou Doki Doki Panic (the Japanese game Nintendo romhacked into Super Mario Bros 2 for the US market), the original hard as fuck Japanese Super Mario Bros 2, and the somewhat different Japanese Zelda II.

    I got both. I think I paid like an extra 5 bucks for the SNES and got the NES for its retail price; both on amazon. I'm gonna get me a little 32" tv, put it up in my room, and those two will be my "eh, fuck it" systems to play. I've always wondered about that SMB2 game, the original version. I've seen gameplay about it and it looks interesting; I never knew the SMB2 I had growing up wasn't originally a mario game. Granted, it stood out like fuck due to it just being absolutely bizarre compared to every other mario game I had

    The story behind the two SMB 2 games is really interesting. God the Japanese original SMB 2 is hard as fuck, at times it can be almost as bad as some of the Kaizo Mario romhacks. Check this shit for the story of the two games.



    You can use a program called hakchi on your NES Classic to add Yume Koujou Doki Doki Panic, though it can be a pain in the ass to find the right rom. It took my fifth attempt before I could get a rom that worked on the NES Classic emulator. Plus I got rid of some of the crap games like Ice Climber and Punch Out With Mr Dream so I could put the entire Mega Man NES series as well as Mike Tyson's Punch Out. Damn the controllers are absolute spot on for both.

    Unlocking characters in Smash Ultimate is extremely tedious. I am playing one match, SD'ing, fighting the new character, and then exiting out of the game. Over and over again.

    For sure. I wish the adventure mode was just straight up unlocking characters. Beat one, move on to the next without all the spirit bullshit.

    Not sure if anyone here played No More Heroes (from Suda51) on the Wii but it was fantastic. I missed the follow up but they are about to release Travis Strikes Again on the Switch. It's part of the same story but clearly not meant to be taken as the third in the series.

    Game play is completely different.

    But I think I'm going to give it a go based on how good the first one is.

    I think it was made around 2013 and you could order cartridges of it from the Atari Age store to run on actual Atari 2600 until Nintendo found out about it. There is some really cool homebrew written for the 2600. Here is another cool game called Halo 2600 written by a former VP of Microsoft's game publishing division.

    Not worth debating really. We could go on and on.

    I was like 7 or 8 when I first read them. But that's not my only point of reference.
