It's annoying that Nintendo doesn't give us the option to buy the Switch Online games instead, like Sony does with the classics on PS Plus Premium.

I agree it's probably because their emulator seems to be a case of all games are installed within the emulator and tied to the app running them so licensing would be hard.

But it's also because it's Nintendo and they make more money when it's a subscription over just letting you buy super Mario bros 3 for 5 bucks for the X time.

I loved Golden Sun 1 & 2 on the GBA and even the DS one. This is what IGN had to say about the sound/music in their review over 20yrs ago. "Camelot proves that the GBA can push out music and sounds that trounce the Super NES' capabilities. " Now that is something, because the SNES had one of the best sound chips compared to Genesis or TG-16. I just wish we had a remake like how Super Mario RPG received. It would have been amazing if we did, all 3 games on one Switch cart. For me that would be instant buy.😊

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!
