DKC2 coming to Switch!
Surprised to see we're getting DKC2 so soon after the first. Not big into the original DKC Trilogy, but will definitely try it out for the first time.
Picross, not much to say. Am sure it'll be fine, especially for those who've never played Picross before like myself.
Peace Brothers seems like a standard SNES brawler, nothing fantastic but nothing bad either.

SCAT I hear is one of the best NES shooters and that pushes the limit of the system but have never been able to get into it myself despite owning a physical cart. The control scheme always throws me off. Either way more classic Natsume is never a bad thing. It's one of the pricier NES games ($110) so another re-issue is nice.

Aside from FE3, we've already received all of the games Japan is getting this month. Personally I like FE3 the most out of any of these titles, but I think it's a safe win for Western regions this round. :marthmelee:

They are reaching the end of the SNES And NES barrel which makes me think the reason why Mario is limited, as we will see Mario 64 release for free with online early next year.

So are we all in agreement that Nintendo just stopped giving a **** about the NES online?
Depends on how you look at it. The last few NES releases have been above average except for maybe The Immortal, which is still notable as it's still the first time it's been reissued. On the other hand, there are still tons of awesome games to be re-released they haven't gotten to. SCAT itself is a $110 game loose, so having that made available again is fantastic. Several key titles are also available through other means on the system and the SNES is still playing catch up in terms of numbers of games available.

Still crossing my fingers for Gimmick! If that gets re-released proper then all complaints about NES/SNES Online are objectively rendered invalid. :p

New video from Delzethin: this time it's the Knight from Hollow Knight.


So what do you guys think of this moveset?
Hallow Knight has never hooked me in. That being said, I wouldn’t be upset to see him. I see it more as an enhanced Mii costume type deal.

It's so strange to me that one of the selling features of two consoles was the Virtual Console and they've just sort of....not done that with the Switch.

I mean the Switch has a much better overall library of new games, but it'd still be such a system seller and gateway drug to getting older Nintendo players back if they had access to their favorite new games on the go, but also all their old favorite classics. regularly.

I mean, as it stands now, the SNES online is one of the two reasons to actually get the Nintendo Switch Online, so I doubt they're gonna actually bring back VC, not when SNES online has picking up a lot of steam lately.

Besides VC also had a trash release schedule too, so it's not like Nintendo is gonna handle it well. Remember, we had to wait for N64 VC on the Wii U when the Wii had it for quite a while.

We're still probably gonna have to wait for N64 online for a long, long time, or at least a decent chunk of time after the Mario collection is done selling.

Part of me wonders if they're afraid that their old titles will take away from their new ones. Like, they obviously want people to be buying and playing the new games, and since they know how much people love the old games, maybe they're afraid they'd compete with the new titles?

It's goofy enough to be something they'd do. :drshrug:

Well, when it comes to some games, I honestly believe that they're right in that regard.

Isn't the competitive crowd really the only one that cares about Melee at this point, though?

Don't get me wrong, I love all Smash games (...apart from Wii U), but most casuals will probably stick with Ultimate for the roster.

Yeah but it'd directly eat into Ultimate's spotlight in pretty much every way. Big N wants Ultimate to be the spotlight Smash game right now, and we've already seen them go on a tirade against tournaments/mods in the past for older Smash titles when a new one is what they're pushing.

In fairness, they haven't gone after Melee tournaments in a long time. That one time they went after a charity one seem to teach them a lesson regarding that, as it admittedly was one of the dumbest things they've ever done and criticism of the action was completely warranted.

Trophies on the site seem a bit late.

I just got the one for uploading my first avatar to the site.

But wouldn't I have achieved it in 2014 when I had Edd from Ed Edd n Eddy as my avatar?

I think the NES get's enough love. N64 and SNES should have more games on Switch Online right now. Nintendo never gives the N64 attention ever. It bothers me as a N64 enthusiast.
It'll get attention.



After Super Mario Collection's off the shelf and you won't be able to pay Nintendo 60 bucks directly for Super Mario 64.

When the N64 does get attention from Nintendo, they only act like Mario 64 and the Zelda games are the only N64 games that exist when there is a good amount of N64 games and underrated ones that never get attention.

I mean, a lot of those games are 3rd party releases, so Nintendo probably just doesn't care to negotiate the rights for a lot of them when they're pretty niche, unfortunately. Rare's games are also a problem due to Microsoft.

The N64 is a weird console all the way around: There's honestly not that many major Nintendo titles on there that have super huge followings nowadays. Mario 64, OoT, MM, and maaaaaybe Kirby still have big followings? DK64 is also a thing. It gets a bit harder to pick out major games for me after that.

EDIT: Oh, and Paper Mario. Forgot about it just like Tanabe and Miyamoto did. :secretkpop:

Yeah pretty much. The N64 was just kinda a cursed system.


It had some very iconic games, but you can probably count those titles on all your fingers and toes, and trying to think of too many releases after that gets difficult... and if you cut 3rd party titles out of the picture, you severely cut that number down further.

Has anyone here seen this yet?

Seeing these Rhythm Heaven videos only make me want to see that one Final Fantasy 5 x Rhythm Heaven video that I saw done years ago. Like I saw this Rhythm Heaven video that used Final Fantasy 5 characters and classes around the time when there were videos from Nico video were being taken and uploaded to Youtube. And I really want to see it again now knowing the context of Rhythm Heaven.

Hey, at least it's not like the time when we found out that Brendan did not have white hair and was wearing a hat.

I wish the Goemon games would get attention. Mystical Ninja: Starring Goemon and Goemon's Great Adventure are some of the most underrated games on the N64 and are up there with Nintendo and Rareware's games as some of the best games on the console period in my opinion.
