Cart only copy of Pilotwings Resort on the 3DS.
I really enjoyed that game - really relaxing, although one of the modes means finding stuff - I have all bar one and never been able to find it!

Re: What's the most iconic retro game that's actually rubbish?

Q*Bert. Cute characters. Impressive for its time...but just plain fiddly, frustrating and no fun at all to actually play. There's a reason why it hardly ever gets remade or included in billions of compilations like the likes of Pacman, Galaga & Donkey Kong etc do. I love Q-Bert and the Gameboy vers...

Re: Super Mario 35th Anniversary

I'm guessing that we won't see Super Mario 64 on any forthcoming Nintendo Online virtual console thing now?

Re: Super Mario 35th Anniversary

And it's already the second biggest selling game of the year just on the pre-orders: https://www.ign.com/articles/super-mario-3d-all-stars-is-already-amazons-second-best-selling-game-of-2020 I'd be rather hoping that the takeaway for Nintendo is that lots of people will jump on a value compilation ...

Re: Super Mario 35th Anniversary

I'd think it's easy to look at it as a glass half-empty in that we're getting a three game compilation that could easily have been four, five or even six games given that Galaxy 2 and 3D Land are being left out while 3D World gets its own release. Still, given that Nintendo have previously been qui...

Re: Game Gear Micro Coming

I wouldn't be able to see a thing on those screens - really weird move by Sega.

As said elsewhere, a Game Gear with 40 or 50 games on it... yeah, interested.

This? No.

Re: Turbografx Mini/PC Engine Mini

I'd prefer the PC Engine one - the others don't look as good - however, it was my dream to own one when it came out, so I'll get one of these... even if the extra pad is very expensive.

I've cancelled my preorder for the console and additional pad. I got an email from Amazon last night saying the release date of the extra pad and multitap is now 31st December 2020.

so I've decided to cancel it all and see if it comes out this year.
I wonder if thats just a place holder?
