Not that it's a great game, but kind of shocked Killer Instinct didn't show up being a first party title.

Rare owns Killer Instinct. It was never a first party game.

I would have liked to see UN squadron or Axelay. UN was a really great launch title that kept me busy for months. That lineup is pretty sweet though.

OK ... healthy amount of people in so far. 

 

Going to eat dinner and I'll check invites. After that I'll likely close it off unless I interact with you regular on CAG. 

 

Thanks guys -- going to send out one message now.

HEADS UP

I created a Discord server ... great idea but left the one I was in. There are a few trolls and that's way too many.

PM me if you want invite. Basically, goal is to keep chit chat down, and alert everyone WITH link when live.

The Discord idea is perfect, but it can be better with some tweaks.


This was guaranteed to happen. I remember lots of entertainment in the amiibo LINE group with people who were perfectly nice suddenly flip and post genitalia in the alerts group at 3am.

Lol. I was also remembering the LINE group as I clicked the link for Discord. But it looks like I'm stuck with it. Oh well.

Haha you suckers bought the wrong one. The Super Famicom Mini has a better game list.


Will they have an English option for the rpgs?

So, where is the dude whose years upon years in the industry led him to swear on his mother that another Classic could never happen? That it was totally against Nintendo's business model and future interests?

There was no Smash Bros for the SNES...

 

The list is nice though. DCK2 is a crucial omission....Chrono Trigger is a big one, too. X2 and X3 would have been personal additions, but they aren't huge deals.

I meant this one LOL   smash tv    I remember when this was released it got high reviews like 9.5 lol

If it's anything to go off of before, 3am-4am for the pre-orders?

The same way the Zelda ME were up on Amazon and Switch stuff?

You can kick people from it too - but that only works if the link isn't posted in public so they can rejoin.

That game list is one of the best compilations I have ever seen released .   From super punch out to contra,    a bevy of 9 plus rated games.  

Star fox was one of the most amazing releases for its time.  if they threw Chrono trigger ,super smash tv  on there the world would have stopped.     

Worth every penny and even more.   

 

Contra III: The Alien Wars™
Donkey Kong Country™
EarthBound™
Final Fantasy III
F-ZERO™
Kirby™ Super Star
Kirby’s Dream Course™
The Legend of Zelda™: A Link to the Past™
Mega Man® X
Secret of Mana
Star Fox™
Star Fox™ 2
Street Fighter® II Turbo: Hyper Fighting
Super Castlevania IV™
Super Ghouls ’n Ghosts®
Super Mario Kart™
Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars™
Super Mario World™
Super Metroid™
Super Punch-Out!! ™
Yoshi’s Island™

I like this list but it is missing some sports games. I was looking forward to Super Tecmo Bowl or NBA Jam.

The NES Classics for Amazon were during the day. They announced the time they would go on sale beforehand.

As long as those twatwaffles are still around, it'll happen again. Don't bother with discord if you have an Android phone:

Install this app, add the direct page to the mini and select the Coming Soon button element for monitoring. Set it to check every minute (unless you have your hands tied by low data cap) and set the notifications as you choose.

Well, this is a slap in the face to VC.  I wonder if this means we won't see VC at all this holiday season.

 

I wonder if Nintendo will make changes to the memory on these things to remove the ability to hack it with mods.  The reason it worked on the NES classics was because there was more memory in them to load the ROMS.

 

The easiest way for Nintendo to make it harder to soft-mod the SNES would be to put next to no external memory in it beyond what it needs to store the 21 games and any save states.  While I'm sure hackers might find a way, doing this would make it very difficult for laypeople to do it.

I have a lowly iphone.  Anybody have recommendations for it?

 

Edit:  Also excellent use of the pronoun "twatwaffles"

Yes, I most recently used it to get a Fire Emblem Echoes LE from Amazon as well as used it a good amount during the original amiibo hype. Just be sure to set the monitored element to something that will change when it comes in stock. The app doesn't actually know if the item is in stock or not, it just tells you if a page has changed. However, that's good enough for our purposes.

Anyone here from the US buy the EU version of the NES classic?  I'm wondering if it'll play fine on American TV sets, because I'd rather get their version of the SNES Classic.

We all imported UK TV sets as well today.....
