Nintendo "best we can do is Pokemon Mini".

VenomUK193d ago

Switch Online had more users than the combined Xbox Series S and X user base. This comparison is relevant because it highlights the incredible challenge Microsoft has with making Game Pass profitable when so much content is included in the very affordable subscription fee. It could work if becomes the dominant service like Netflix, but it isn’t there yet.

@VenomUK

Yes, relevant to mention a completely different service by a different company in this post. Even more as an answer to a joke that in no way shape or form made allusions to wtf you are talking about.

I really hope you guys get the help you need. Obsession is just a terrible disease.

@venom... since when is 38m more than 43m?

Must be that "new math" the kids are doing these days.

Switch online is an affordable service and gives more value compared to PS+ basic.
I like playing Splatoon 3 once in a while online.

@Vits, it’s not an allusion it’s a direct and explicit comparison. It’s relevant because each product does not exist in a vacuum.

And still no way of messaging. Watch em not add it to their next console.

Seriously, their online features used to be a complete joke. Now it's no longer even funny, it's just depressing.

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!
