Wonder if some of that hype was it was Christmas time and Nintendo had nothing else and it was cheap?  Also wasn't the NES a much bigger seller to start with?  I had one (actually 2).  Never had a SNES but one of my brothers did.  

Some of it, but the SNES this year is basically doing the same release schedule as last year. While there is definitely crossover of people who want/have Switch and are interested in these consoles, there are plenty of former gamers that are interested in a sub $100 way to relive the games from their childhoods, alongside gamers that aren't necessarily interested in modern Nintendo and the Switch.

The original NES was a bigger seller overall, but it was relevant for much longer than the average console. The SNES and its generation were the beginning of our rought 5 year console cycles.

 

Then you focus more on modern gamers. Personally I think the games on the SNES hold up way better than most of the NES library, barring stuff like Mario, Zelda, and Kirby. Many games on this collection are considered masterpieces and still referred to as some of the best games of all time. Super Mario World, A Link to the Past, Super Metroid, Final Fantasy VI.

Date night countdowns :

  • Chivalry: Medieval Warfare Ultimate Edition
  • Mass Effect: Andromeda & Deluxe Edition
  • Need for Speed Deluxe Edition & Bundle
  • Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare 2: Deluxe Edition
  • Titanfall 2 Ultimate

FM7 and Cuphead for me this week, and, if I'm lucky, an SNES Classic. Already have FM7 Ultimate bought, waiting for the pre-load to go live. Not sure when I'll get to play them. My company's upgrading our production databases overnight Friday into Saturday and I need to be in the office to provide support.

Knocked out the achievements in the FH3 Hoonigan pack today, except for the championships one. Game had me worried for a bit. After I completed the Mini Forzathon challenge, I was playing the 4th event in the set and the game crashed back to the dash. When I loaded it back up, I noticed I couldn't get into the Hot Wheels DLC. Tried redownloading, hard console power off, no go. Then I saw online it's inaccessible for everyone.

Had been following that topic on the Forza forums for a while, glad they finally announced it.

Even happier they're granting DLC / token rewards for older titles. I was planning to buy the FM5 tokens before they were delisted to complete that reward, and was looking into what would be involved to get the older games' DLC rewards.

... twisted and evil. But that's because he's still more pickle than cheese.

Agreed on token/DLC points for Forza rewards. Gets me halfway to the next level once they all go 100%.

I sold my SNES Cart of Earthbound for $80 a few years ago so im excited to pick up this whole system for that price. My wife got a physical preorder into GameStop and put $25 down for this SNES Classic so I'll be ticked if they don't have it saved for me on Friday.

Between that and buying Cuphead it should be a fun weekend.

Seeing pics of the SNES Classic already in stores, waiting in boxes, makes me nervous, especially when people might do anything for one. So here's hoping the best for everyone who pre-ordered anywhere in store!

I never get tired of these. This one was maybe the best one yet.  Well done.

 

You bought the wrong game for your Switch

How do you know it's the only game I got?

But nah, you're probably talking about Zelda and I don't have time for that yet. I'll wait until an open world RPG sounds appealing again, but I'll definitely get it eventually. I tend to like strategy RPGs more than anything though, and I'm really pretty sick of open world games at this point.

 

I was torn between grabbing Mario/Rabbids for my Switch or the Xcom Expansion. Everything I read about M/R said it was great initially and then kinda wore out its welcome, so I went with the Xcom expansion and it's fucking amazing.

Yeah, I'm not far enough into it to really say just yet. I have no doubt the Xcom expansion will be awesome, but at this point I may just wait for a sale, even if it's a paltry 10-20% off.

We get racing suits for loyalty rewards. I'd rather have groovy cars, whatever.

So LAME!  For FM6 we got some of the coolest cars in the game right out of the gate and a ton of credits to buy the other cool cars that were not already given away, for being in the top tier of Forza Rewards.  So glad I didn't waste time time grinding out achievements in FM2 and FM5 to get to tier 11 before 7 releases.

Are we doing predictions for tonight? I’m hoping since it’s the 10 year anniversary of Halo 3 that we get some Halo deals. Would love to have ODST digital just for completeness sake but don’t really want to drop $15 on it at this point.

So here’s to some Halo goodies. Or NBA cash and Shark Cards, like we usually get.

Are BC games not allowed to be downloaded to external drives? Was trying to download Halo Reach to my external since the internal is full and it never offers the option to switch drives. Even trying to pause the download and move it to the external doesn't work, so maybe I just missed this issue every time I've not tried to do that before now.

I have all BC games on a separate external, so it can definitely be done. No idea what could be causing the issue though. Do you have it set as the default storage device?

Not moving to an external, but directly downloading BC games to it.

 

Normal games just give me the "Sorry! There's not enough space here, want to download it to the external?" prompt and that's not what's happening for Reach. It just tells me to free up space or Fuck off.

Didn't seem like the anniversary had a meaningful impact on the Halo 3 population. Maybe more people will be on in the evening.

 

The Halo 5 anniversary playlist is up though, and it's better than I expected. The Forge maps are very good, everything feels like it's the correct distance and weapon spawns are correct. I really hope this is a permanent playlist because it's the most fun I've had in 5's Arena. Really, I'd like to see a second playlist for Big Team or something similar, so more vehicle focused maps could show up, like Rat's Nest. Keeping something like this in future games could go a long way to appease fans of the older games.

List of the actual changes.

-Motion Tracker range is increased to 25m
-All Spartan Abilities are disabled (Sprint, Ground Pound, Spartan Charge, Stabilize, and Clamber)
-Player jump height is increased
-Slightly increased the effect of gravity on players
-Player movement speed decreased
-Increased player forward and strafe acceleration
-Adjusted shield and health recharge rate to approximate Halo 3 values
-Classic Team Oddball: Reduced ball carrier movement speed
-Classic Multi-Flag CTF: Reduced flag carrier movement speed

Wow, I needed this thread today and thanks for all that. Soo... sigh... it turns out that the Unlimited Plan I have with Verizon has a 15 GB Hotspot cap... Yeah, no it didn't. I had the fucken plan since May, the month they announced it'd be available. I signed up day one, like I read about oh looks like Verizon will be doing Unlimited Plans now that night and the next day called in and switched onto it. The Verizon employee said they didn't even know about it until they came in that day. So that would be May, June, July, & August I had been using their 4G LTE Unlimited Plan on my Pixel with my Xbox One & Asus laptop using its hotspot with some occasionaly slowdown during the summer when all the tourists came into our little town (because after 22GB they'll prioritize whomever needs their connection via their congested network).

Then this month all of a sudden I get an automated message on my Goggle Pixel, "Verizon Msg: Your 4G Smartphone ending in #REDACTED had 10% remaining of its monthly 15GB 4G LTE allowance, which resets on the 21st." Then that same night, "Version Msg: Your 4G Smartphone ending in #REDACTED has reached its 15GB 4G LTE allowance. You'll have speeds up to 600 Kbps until your next bill cycle." My god, do things not download on the Xbox One when they give you UP TO 600 Kbps, Kbps! FUCKING Killabits, that's not even Kilobytes. All of a sudden I have a cap on my hotspot. I got the same message on the 24th (data shit resets on the night of the 21st), after I was able to get Saints Row: The Third & Livelock fully downloaded and play some Fortnite, Halo Wars 2 & Rocket League online. Knowing I had used a bunch for that and Pinball FX 3 coming up, Forza Motorsport 7 on the horizon, I decided to not do any updates or get any Ready to Install games.

So, I went into the support on my My Verizon app on my phone and via chat talked with the Verizon chat representative. I explained the whole situation and said I was confused about the data notification. They initially said the same thing that automated message told me and then they decided that they'd have to look into it with their Tier 2 Tech Team. AND IT BOILS DOWN TO IT WAS ALWAYS THERE BUT NEVER WENT INTO EFFECT BECAUSE IT WAS A SYSTEM GLITCH! They said oh it was a system glitch - that hotspot cap should have been in place from the get go - we fixed it now. Then had the fuckin nerve to upsell me onto their new GO Unlimited Plan which apparently has data boosts you can get at a fee. Oh how much are you talking about here. They go you can add an extra 5GB for $35 a month. In my head, my current mindset after they told me this.

I pointed out that shit, the average game is 35GB with updates being half that at times, how the hell would I stream or game at anything 4K. They told me, "Actually, for any 4K related videos or streaming we do recommend FiOS." Fios isn't available in my area, if we had Fios, I wouldn't be using their 4G LTE via hotspot as my only source of internet. I read about Verizon customers in rural Maine that just got cut off from their service because they were said to be using too much roaming for Verizon to be profitable and went shit we're fucking next. Well apparently the illusive unlimited internet has come to an end for me.

This is my thought as well. When I hooked up my new external drive a few months ago, I specified for it to be the default download location and have never had a problem with anything going to the internal drive first. it sounds like the internal drive is currently the default location.
