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.
You say this as if Nintendo isn't milkin the **** out of N64 nostalgia now lol.

Also, wanna see neglect? The GameCube exists lol.

BoTW being heavy on OoT references
Banjo in Smash
Pokemon Snap coming back
Ultimate itself used Smash 64 nostalgia as a motif
etc

You could also say how they refuse to believe Star Fox continued after 64, I guess. Also I'd think Ultimate is more focused on Melee and Brawl: They're where the cut vets were last seen, it has faster gameplay for Melee fans, and a big adventure mode for Brawl fans. Even if it doesn't reach the levels those fanbases wanted.

Idk what these new trophies are, but it does remind me, Origami King has a built in achievement system in which you do various tasks to fill up a trophy case, and that makes me realize


Other Nintendo games should have an achievement system. Thoughts?

I wonder how many of these award point thingies were needed for the “I’d like to thank the academy...” trophy.

Especially since A. It came out of nowhere and B. I don’t know what an award point is.

I came back to 3 achievements lol. Two of which I already meet criteria for. Which was the avatar one and having a smash main for every game. The last was for trophy points in general that I gathered so that’s neat.

I think it means the total points you get via trophies accumulated.

I'm personally not usually a huge fan of achievement systems. They often feel like arbitrary rewards for arbitrary tasks.

Well, thanks. lol
We’ve been adding a few additional trophies for the site. Some of them are self-explanatory, others are more vague while some are extremely hard to get.

Things like the avy trophies will be rewarded to anyone who has uploaded a custom avatar regardless of joining period. The trophies aren’t a one-time thing and can be awarded whenever the criteria is fulfilled. Gotta catch ‘em all!

“Guess Who’s Back, Back Again...”

This trophy sounded like fun to come up with.

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.
It might be the retro game diehards I follow, but I know many, such as the guys over at Retronauts or the CUPodcast, called the system more of a throwback/emulation machine at least during the system's initial 2 year lifespan. Collections, Arcade Archives, SEGA Ages, Neo Geo, Neo Pocket Color Selection, random ports, etc. The fact that Nintendo was magically able to re-release arcade Donkey Kong after 37 years of legal issues speaks volumes.

N64 & GC are definitely still strange omissions though given the demand, especially for the latter. I personally think a GB Online is more likely to happen than either of them. N64 is up in the air IMO now that the defining game getting it's own separate re-release, but I'd be surprised if GC games aren't sold individually.

Not sure why Nintendo made the shift away from the VC, especially if people are still interested in purchasing individual titles. Part of it could be the changing landscape as even with the 3DS/Wii U VC, the selection wasn't as large and arguably diverse (MS/Genesis/Arcade/C64 vs. GG/GBA/DS). Rather than saving for individual re-releases, both Capcom & Konami chose to re-release their most popular games of the 8/16 bit era in collections. SEGA & Konami, taking Nintendo's lead, chose to go the mini-system route.

Companies might have a different outlook as a lot of plans for the Wii VC were put into motion through re-releases in the GBA/GC era; 2003 in particular for the 20th anniversary of the Famicom and GBA ports. I think it was at that time that companies learning that their old games still had value and were more willing to throw up roms of them. Now that the retro market is in full swing it's probably caused those companies to re-value their properties. The consumer generational swing from NES/SNES kids to N64/GC/Wii kids could also explain some trends.


Also nice Avatar. Gold's Togepi is a lot of fun; one of the best moments in the series is him teaching Togepi how to gamble. Recently picked up the HGSS volumes, having never read the saga in full before.

yeah...a legit Spider-Man fact (that is likely only for Peter Parker
10806863-1456-45D1-819F-C01369F6E37B.jpeg

nutshell is blah blah blah villians ko’s New Avengers, then they all wake up butt ass naked for...reasons I don’t know...and Jessica is annoyed over them all being in the nude (especially since this was before there were any other females on the team...and during the time she was a skrull)
still not among the weirdest Spider-Man facts somehow

Did we get new trophies or are they just implemented poorly? I just got 2 new trophies, one of which was for uploading an avatar picture for the first time.

XD OK...?

SITE.png

"You lookin' sharp in that VERY FIRST Avatar today, Riley!"

"But I am not in it right now...and it has been 6 years...BTW, my name's Rid-"

"Also, would you like to thank the Academy?"

"The what...?"

"Also, you're gonna be the next April Fools joke, too bad you aren't in Smash!"

"But I already was...and I AM."

"...Who are you...?"

"......"

XD I am so sorry, I couldn't resist. I should be taking breaks, but I was tempted. Love the site. <3

...So like, in the rollout to get the new trophies, I didn't get the "One main for every game one"

Rip
If you would have waited like, 11 minutes, you would have seen that you received it....

:grinch:

When trophies roll out, it sometimes takes a while for them to get rewarded. In my trophies, finally got the You Work for the Man Now, Dog Trophy for being made a mod back in 2018 despite originally being modded in 2013. And I never got the Super Moderator (what Frieza hates most) trophy despite being made one in 2014-15’ish. It’s still “Being Delivered.”

Or just games on Nintendo. I know there's an Achievements website for emulated games. Those are all kinds of fun and gives you an extra task to do, which makes you want to actually 100% a game.

I have over two thousand Smashboards points now! Maybe I can finally afford one of the big plush toys behind the counter!
Or exchange them to Nook Miles....

maybe Smashboards could set up a working business relationship with a certain enterprising Tanuki.
