They're cool novelty things but after 15 years of emulation I don't really want to spend $80+tax just to finally play a true blue legit copy of Star Fox 2... :\

I bit. Mainly cuz I prefer playing on original hardware. I realize this obviously isn't OG hardware but I'm inclined to believe it'll still be better than emulation since people were saying that the NES Classic's versions of games were noticeably better than the virtual console versions of those games which were supposedly nothing more than emulated versions.

I'll probably cave in and get everdrives down the line but this thing gives me 10 or 11 games I didn't already have plus if Nintendo acts like dicks (for the millionth time) and woefully short-arms the supply chain, I can probably still get back most or all of my money even selling an opened unit if I end up with buyer's remorse.

For me, I have emulators, on my PC and my phone, but it is extremely rare I ever play them, mostly because I just don't have the drive to play older games very often.  So while the idea of the classic consoles is cool, I just feel like I wouldn't actually play them and therefore it's a waste for me to buy them.  Also, with the supply shortages, it's definitely not worth the hassle to try and get one.

I would rather them just release the virtual console for the Switch and then I would be able to just buy the games I want. Given the choice between playing classic games on the switch or the SNES/NES classic, I would absolutely rather play them on the switch.

Same here. My tits ain't tickled one way or the other about having a piece of shelf candy with a wired controller (only 5' long too ffs) but I know there's no way in hell I would've ever bought most of these games in the eShop since I'm strongly trying to ween myself off digital cuz I'm tired of spending money to not have anything to show for it in my physical collection. I just keep getting sucked in by awesome prices in PS store flash sales and a lot of the 10 or so games I don't own that this thing is coming with now go for at least $20 apiece. Until I get an everdrive this is a nice way to tide me over even though I seriously doubt I'd have gotten it if it didn't have Starfox 2.

Speaking of the Switch - I was fairly certain I wasn't going to buy Skyrim again since I've already done everything there is to do in it on PC, plus mods. But then I watched the trailer and heard that music and oh god. I have to have it. I MUST.

EDIT: Just saw on tonight's Nintendo direct - Square Enix's project Octopath Traveler has a demo that's now out on the Switch, I'm downloading it. It looks like such an awesome, interesting RPG. Mario Odyssey and Fire Emblem Warriors a week apart at the end of October, then Skyrim, and 2018 will have a ton of stuff I'm psyched about. I don't think my wallet can handle it

The octopath Traveler demo is pretty cool. That is one cool ass aesthetic.

It was nice to see skyrim and xenoblade get a release date. They are just around the corner. Mario is a day one buy as well.

And hot damn, was I surprised to see both DOOM and Wolfenstein announced for the switch. Two hardcore mature 3rd party games on the switch? hell yeah, sign me up  :metal

I'm really interested in where the Switch goes after this year. There is a big Mario release and Zelda release that will be out of the way, so what happens next.

I read earlier today that Doom is going to be ported to the Switch.

Metroid 4, obviously. Hopefully DKC since they'd be foolish cocksuckers to not ride the momentum of Tropical Freeze since the absolute worst review I've ever seen of it called it average (and the reasons seemed shaky) and 90% of the other word of mouth about it is the verbal equivalent of 8+/10. F-Zero is LONG overdue. We also might get another Zelda this generation since that happened on N64 and those two (Ocarina and Majora) came out 17 months apart in Japan so they definitely have the track record to suggest the plausibility of such.

Outside of all of the above, maybe we can get a cool modern 2D Castlevania or Megaman this generation. The fan base for 2D platformers ain't goin away for a while so I think it might happen at some point.

I also wouldn't be surprised if they re-released Tropical Freeze, since it was a great game, but probably didn't do as well as it could have due to Wii U sales. They should definitely continue that franchise though. They might squeeze in another Zelda game, although their development times are a lot longer now, so it would probably be right at the end of its cycle.
I have no interest in their mini consoles, since they're just running emulated anyway. I can do that on my PC for free. That and the fact we still have all of our old consoles. :lol We never had a NES though.

We have a Wii that's seen maybe an hour total of play time in the two years we've had it. Seems like there are only a handful of legitimately worthwhile games, and most of those are basically ruined by shitty controls because someone decided that the gimmick of shaking a stick around was better than just pressing a damn button.

20 minutes of the Octopath Traveler demo and I'm sold, absolutely picking this up when it's released. I never got to play Bravely Default but I'm wondering if Square Enix's magic lies in these types of RPGs now and Final Fantasy is just past its prime.

Sonic Mania is fucking awesome. Don't think that just because you got through the first 3-5 stages with relatively few issues doesn't mean it's an easy Sonic game though...

The orbs were driving me nuts on the first playthrough, leading to quite a few time overs. Eventually was able to get a hang of it.

Overall I really like Sonic Mania. If I had one complaint, its that stylistically its all over the place. Since its incorporating levels and game design from all 4 different games  (sonic 1, 2, 3&K and CD), it sometimes can feel disjointed.

Sonic mania is fantastic but S3&K is still my favorite, since it was one brand new game from beginning to end.

I hope that the success of Mania convinces Sega to allow Christian whitehead and crew to be able to make a 100% brand new 2D sonic from top to bottom.

The time overs are fucking ridiculous in this game. I don't care if 10:00 has been the time limit for every game in the series, it's not nearly enough for levels this big. Your timer should either restart at 0:00 following any death, not just time overs, or they should have monitors (like the ones that contain rings and powerups) with a clock icon that you can break for additional time later on in the levels.

Overall I really like Sonic Mania. If I had one complaint, its that stylistically its all over the place. Since its incorporating levels and game design from all 4 different games  (sonic 1, 2, 3&K and CD), it sometimes can feel disjointed.

I guess their hands were kinda tied since this was marketed as being the end all be all "thank you" gesture to those who've been longing for a proper 2D Sonic game so they had to be sure to not neglect fans of any of those games by not including anything from any one specific game.

I hope that the success of Mania convinces Sega to allow Christian whitehead and crew to be able to make a 100% brand new 2D sonic from top to bottom.

Shit, that would be amazing. I see no reason that this couldn't become the basis for continuing the 2D series permanently.

Fortunately, they're Sega and not Nintendo so we have WAY more of a chance of them doing what fans actually want.

I played a quick little game I downloaded called Orwell. It was really interesting, design and gameplay. You essentially play an investigator for a government program that spies on citizens of The Nation to stop crime and terrorist plots. The music is really what makes the game, it sets such a cool atmosphere. Here's a gameplay video. I loved it
