Still overpriced, but I subbed for the first time after the GBA/Gameboy announcement last month.

This was such a great entry in the series, so I'm excited to play again. Glad this hit so soon, bc although strong, the GBA/GB launch lineup was very small.

So you’re telling me Nintendo has 6 retro systems on this service and they’re STILL drip feeding content?

Lool yep. I would have been happier to purchase them outright at this rate, than this service

Playing it right now. Its a crime it took so long to get this to the switch. But nintendo gonna nintendo and we’re all used to their style of “game preservation”. Anyway this game is absolutely amazing. I hope they add zero mission next.

The other day I finished Metroid Zero Mission with Retroarch on my phone, what I mindblowing game, using scaleFX shader that made it look almost like an HD remake and earning retro achievements along the way, together with save states, fast forward and rewind support, and I plan to start Metroid Fusion soon enough, I really don't know any reason to play this on a switch instead.

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!
