Drip feed isn't good on the consumers end, but I see why they do this. It keeps NSO in the news and keeps interest alive.

It's the difference between VC and a subscription like NSO. For VC it doesn't matter if they drip feed or not because you are only going to buy what you are interested in. For NSO they need to constantly reinvigorate interest to keep people subscribed.

That said, they should not take as long as they have been with these drip feeds. One game a month would be fine, not a random two games every six months. Also, I would love if they put some N64DD games on there. Give us the track editor for F Zero X. Let us play Doshin the Giant on N64 and the original Animal Crossing. Mario Artist can work with the touch screen (hopefully) and Sim City 64 would be interesting.

What is also a joke is the fact that europe is being left with the 50hz PAL versions, slowdown included, if Nintendo can do the bare minimum, they will.

It's tied to a subscription. Of course they will release them as slowly as possible.

Thank you! This is a comment with common sense...why is so hard for other people to understand a simple concept like this one.?

You have to subscribe to get 1 old rom per month seems a neat deal
