Still blows my mind how it's being handled though. I know it's because the original remake is tied up in legal crap between multiple companies, but it's still weird.

Still being rereleased.
Still on multiple consoles.

But just an up-res of the original game though. And somehow Nintendo - the company with the absolute worst online in the industry - get exclusive rights to the online elements.

It's so weird.

It's business at the end of the day, Nintendo knows how to get the right exclusive at the right time. This is why their The Vatican of the gaming industry, few can match their business success.

What's great about this is that these titles were never previously discussed, they just sort of came out of left field. I loved the Extreme G series back in the day. They were just beneath Wipeout and FZero, but still really good.

If I remember the courses were good, but the gameplay just slightly beneath wipeout. Farro had the most speed but simple handling mechanics of double tap to dash slide / barge and boosters on track occasionally with the recharge health sections, but wipes out had full weapons, lock on missiles or rockets
Then with your cancel weapon pick up / trading a shield for a missile if you’re behind someone or trade the missile for the shield if you were in First, compared to extreme g which was more basic. I could be wrong tho. It was an awful long time ago.

On a similar note, I always wished starters pod racer had weapons. It would’ve been one of the best.

Strange headline, as I thought the star of the show was Super RType. I almost bought RType Dimensions EX this last month and was just thinking, man I wish we had the SNES one somewhere on Switch. That's where I got my start w the series and I was beyond excited to see it drop this week!
