  1. Nintendo Collectables!

    I've never played Final Fantasy 7, but I love these polygonal figures shown off at TGS:
  2. Ring Fit Adventure

    Yes, there is something very unnerving about the way they present this thing. The idea seems interesting though, I never had a problem with the Wii fit stuff in the past and I’m kinda glad they are making something new in the vein of those style of games.

  5. Nintendo Switch Online: SNES

    Playing Snes games in handheld mode just before going to sleep is quite addictive. I've found myself playing through a number of games already since last week; Ghouls'n Ghosts, Joe and Mac, Star Fox and now Super Mario World: Despite owning this game since it came out back in 1992 and playing through it probably 50 times in all these years, I never get tired of it. It just holds up so well and is just as enjoyable to play as it was nearly 30 years ago. I can never make my mind up on which 2D Mario game I like the best, but playing through it this time, i think it has to be SMW for me. One difference I noticed here is it shows a star on the file select screen when you complete every level in the game, which is different to my original copy of the game, which just changed the yellow numbers to blue once you get all 96. I thought that maybe that meant this was the newer version of SMW they released on the Mario All Stars combo cartridge that changed Luigi's design, but its not. So maybe these are the US roms on this service?

    The QR code thing seems to have something to do with Nintendo events. If you go to your User settings on your profile page, select 'Display QR Code' and hit 'About checking in', it shows this message: "Present this QR Code at Select Nintendo events and locations to gain access to exclusive My Nintendo member benefits such as My Nintendo points and participation in promotions. The benefits will vary each time, and Further details will be provided before you check in." As for the alarm, I am assuming its just an alarm feature that allows you to set a reminder that pops up while you are playing a game, but being as none of the current software supports the feature at the moment, we can't find out yet.
  7. General Switch Discussion

    New Firmware update rolled out last night. Ver. 9.0.0: There is also is an update to the joycons that you have to download manually in system settings. Main things for me are that it looks like we'll be able to send invites to play online now, which means the friends list actually has a purpose now. And there will be some kind of alarm option, which is handy for me since I seem to be losing track of time when I play SNES games. Although it seems that isn't active yet. Side note, no new avatars which is surprising. I was expecting some Astral Chain and/or Zelda Links Awakening avatars with this update lol
  8. Nintendo Switch Online: SNES

    I honestly have no idea how anyone got through Super Ghouls 'n Ghosts back in the day. Thanks to that rewind feature I finished it but holy crap is that game just full of pure cheap nonsense at times. Also, I can't imagine how mad people got when they finished the game the first time and got this message:

    I love this quote

    Nice Preview from GameXplain
  13. Nintendo Switch Online: NES

    That's good, I wonder if they'll just add it to the current roster of games or if it'll be a tiered service (pay slightly more if you want SNES games). Hopefully the former. I also wonder what the chances are of licensed titles ever coming to the service. Like turtles in time or batman returns.
