Re: Super Mario 35th Anniversary

I'm fully expecting a repeat of the Zelda Collectors Edition for the GameCube where they managed to completely miss out A Link to the Past and made a very poor quality port of Majora's Mask.

Re: Super Mario 35th Anniversary

3D Land also gets left out. Maybe it and Galaxy 2 could form a later compilation or it'll be offered as DLC for 3D World?

Re: Super Mario 35th Anniversary

It says in store/downloadable on the eShop page.

With the 'limited run' lasting six months I guess there's only going to be 5 million or so copies knocking about by the end of it.

Re: Super Mario 35th Anniversary

I'd think that it's up there with the GameGear Micro in terms of useless novelties. Especially so, given that I've already got eight Nintendo-branded handhelds that I can play Super Mario on.

Ninten-do what Sega shouldn't have. :lol:

Re: What Films/TV Have you Watched Recently?

That's a lot of episodes.

I'd think that when any series crosses the 100 mark its genre automatically becomes soap opera.

Re: What are you currently playing?

It's been noted since the game first came out that the combat in Metroid Prime is a bit borked and you're better off avoiding fights unless they're unavoidable or give you easily farmed drops. You might want to try the Trilogy re-release on the Wii because, even with the occasional bit of motion-con...

Re: The Google Stadia

Especially not, seeing as they've already jumped into bed with Microsoft to create their own streaming service:

Re: Nintendo Switch Discussion

The New 3DS was also partly prompted by Nintendo being patent trolled over the original 3DS which meant that they suddenly had to pay a substantial royalty on every unit sold. Their only option to avoid this going forward was to take the affected models off the market and replace them with ones usin...

Re: Consoles/computers with leaking batteries

Pretty much every DOS/Windows PC has a battery on the motherboard that powers the real time clock and, in some older models, the NVRAM that stores the BIOS settings. This is often referred to the "CMOS battery" although that's not been the technology used for a long time Most commonly they're just C...

Re: Nintendo Switch Discussion

My ideal 'Switch Pro' would be a pure home console model. With no limits on power draw because of size and battery life, they could potentially deliver a proper 4K experience that way, and existing games could be patched to remove the up-scaling and increase the frame rate. They'd also allow you to ...

Re: High Score show - Netflix

I don't think it's too bad for what it is. The pixel art animations are really nice and even if it's not exactly a comprehensive history of games there are plenty of interesting stories in there. By the way the "transgender woman who won the Space Invaders competition" is Rebecca Heineman, who has b...

Re: Nintendo Switch Discussion

There are more rumours of a new Switch model coming next year: https://arstechnica.com/gaming/2020/08/reports-4k-nintendo-switch-revision-slated-for-2021-launch/ Again, the idea of a 4K Switch comes up but I'd suspect it'd just be 4K output with almost all games being rendered at a much lower resolu...

Re: Nintendo Switch Discussion

It shouldn’t impact collectors as no DRM is needed for the cart. There would need to be some sort of check on the download to stop people just giving it away. It needn’t be an online check - an offline check you inserted the cart would suffice and would work beyond any servers being pulled down in ...
