Re: Nintendo Switch Discussion

Plus we have Mario and Sonic Olympics in November which okay is another one of those party games, but they did seem to hint a retro mode with 8 and 16 bit sprites.

Re: Nintendo Switch Discussion

BOTW 2, Dragon Quest and Banjo in Smash, Panzer Dragoon, dates for Link's Awakening and Animal Crossing, all that Mana you can shake a stick at.

Pretty much a Megaton of stuff announced at E3.

Re: Backwards Compatability

So looks like the XBONE will no longer be seeing any new backwards Compatible titles after this week, shifting their focus on Backwards Compatibility on Project Scarlett, but they are adding a final batch of games, including some OG XBox games as well as some of the DLC for OG XBox games being added...
