That's actually pretty cool.

Been trying to get myself a copy of Sunshine and Galaxy, but not that excited about going into 18 figure debt to get those original disks....
 
2020-09-03 10:33:34 AM  
Dammit Nintendo, how many times are you gonna make me buy the same sh--

...wait, Sunshine? Fark yes
 
2020-09-03 10:34:14 AM  
I think this is one of the worst kept secrets in the world. Disappointed not to see Galaxy 2.

Will still be buying.
 
2020-09-03 10:36:13 AM  
Welp, that settles it, I need a Switch.
 
2020-09-03 10:42:29 AM  
Galaxy?  Galaxy.  Nice.

Yep, I've been on the fence for a long time but think the decision has been made for me.

It's too bad they are very hard to find.

I just checked Amazon(.ca) and a Switch is $522 and they only have 7 left.

Yeah one of the guys in my Destiny raid team said he saw one just before March in a shop, and while he didn't need it, he's been kicking himself for not buying it when it was there.

People on Kijiji are selling them for $600 and up.

That's ludicrous. It isn't worth that. It just isn't. But, since when has what something been worth ever really impacted the price of something.

*squeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee*

My husband has a switch and from now on it's ALL MARIO ALL THE TIME.
 
2020-09-03 10:58:40 AM  
Does it have Mario RPG, the only one that matters?
 
2020-09-03 10:59:41 AM  
Unless one counts the various Party titles, I have never completed a single Mario game. I don't understand the appeal. Good on Nintendo though to get people to shell out money for the same games over and over again though.

they mention game & watch, but it's not the actual super mario one.  played the hell out of it as a kid.  ended up selling it a few years ago after playing it a few more time

I still have my original discs, though if I play them again it will be via Dolphin, either in 4k or 3D.

Our children will judge us for those awful LCD games. That Mattel football game with the red dots was better. A hoop and a stick is more fun.

Give me the GBC/GBA Mario Golf titles, where you had a character to level up. Those were so much fun, with lots of great little mini games to help you learn the more advanced techniques.
 
2020-09-03 11:16:55 AM  
Fun fact: me and Super Mario were born on the same day (the game's release in Japan, September 13th 1985).

I used to have the Mario Bros. 3 watch game and the Zelda watch game. Mario 3 was meh, but the Zelda one was actually pretty good for what it was.

You can usually find Switch Lites in stock, but I'm not a fan. The wife stumbled upon a V1 refurb at a random Gamestop a few weeks ago. Just walked in and blurted out "So guys you've got a Switch for me, right?" as a joke and the guy at the counter was like "... well actually, yes." It had pretty bad drift OoB but she got them to swap joycons a week later and its been solid.

/pretty interested in their official take on Super Mario Royale

I'll check out All-Stars, but it really should have been released on the tiny SNES.

I can't get that site to load without grinding Chrome to a halt...

Does it have the arcade version of Super Mario Bros?

So glad I got my Switch way back for Smash Bros. Now to just wait for the 18th...or maybe I'll go pre-order it, surely it won't be as bad as every other thing I pre-order, right?

They can suck it for Switch Lites. I have one called a 3DS and have no need of a new system with the gimmick taken away

Let me guess, Square Enix won't release the licenses?

Same reason I didn't purchase the Super Nintendo Mini/Classic whatever, since it didn't include Chrono Trigger.

My own system/cartridges are long gone - I don't mind paying for them again, if only to compensate for the use of ROM emulators over the years. But Nintendo / the developers need to release the right titles.

(Would also be nice if CT got a proper remake, FFVII style. It's the game that ultimately got me interested in RPG's in general, and D&D.)

It's weird because Mario RPG WAS included with the SNES Classic (as was FF6).

Switch Online has new titles added semi-frequently though, whereas the SNES Classic is whatever games are included with it and that's that (unless you hack it).

I just want EarthBound and Mother 3. EB happened eventually for Wii, but Mother 3 will never happen in English because it's a fan translation.

The ones for the N64 were designed to wear out and break your controllers so you'd have to buy more.  Change my mind.

I recently got Odyssey and it is amazing.  It's like Super Mario 64 but for the modern era.  And once I saw how great it was, it made me realize just how freaking awful galaxy and sunshine were.  Way too much shiat going on in those games.

Neat stuff but I'm only interested in picking up 3D World for Bowser's Furry.

ctrl-f "Hotel Mario"

Ah.  Not ALL the Marios then.

I'm a bit disappointed that 3D All-Stars doesn't include 64 DS, but it'll be nice to finally have a chance to play Sunshine.  (There's a lot I missed by not having a GameCube.)
