Is there, uh, any incentive to get this new more expensive version of Nintendo’s infamously mediocre online service other than N64 and Genesis games. Winback is a surprise for sure, but no Ogre Battle 64, no buy…
(I both respect the con of selling yet more pricey gimmick controllers and also appreciate that someone realized Sin & Punishment is unreasonably difficult to play without a genuine N64 pad)
Also what’s up with that Shadowrun collection? Is it a remaster of the PC games? Do they play acceptably on console? Do they hold up at all? Was the art direction always that… unimpressive?
I remember a user on the Select Button forums was furious with ActRaiser (and anyone who liked it) for “glorifying colonialism”. That may well be true, but I’ve always been a little curious to try it. Too bad I have a zillion unplayed games still in my backlog on Switch alone; soon to be a zillion and one after Disco Elysium physical comes out… although that game’s been so hyped as a masterpiece by virtually every game-player I know that I’m almost inclined to avoid it because, like Undertale, I know I’ll never be able to just engage with it on its own terms outside of those colossal expectations.
That Yoko Taro card RPG seems a little too… conceptual for my tastes. At least when Yasumi Matsuno made a game emulating tabletop gameplay it went for the homey visual appeal of miniatures dioramas and such.
The Mario movie jokes largely make themselves but from the 5 minutes I spent checking Twitter it seems like some people think Charles Martinet is actually Italian?? (He’s French-American)
I’ve been meaning to see the original SMB movie for ages, I will watch literally any movie with my pal D-Hopp in it. Seems like it’d be a very fun thing to stream.
