The trickle continues..... but man, I AM happy about this one. Much better than the Mario games recently, bc we already had those on SNES and they're not THAT different.

I feel like we should be receiving more than just 1 at a time though for the premium we're paying for this Expansion Pass. :\

This is one of the myriad reasons I’ll never give Nintendo another dime. The way they treat their customers is an embarrassment to the gaming community.

You’re absolutely right, for the exorbitant price of Expansion Pass they should be offering much more.

Yeah I can’t justify paying Nintendo for any service besides basic online play. They just nickle and dime their customers and do the bare minimum expecting people to just be happy with what they get.

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!
