    If you havent played starfox2 on the upcoming snes mini, nows your chance to play the versions of starfox2 for it as its already all over the net. Its nearly indentical to the same rom thats been online for 18 years or however long now. So before you completely waste 80$ on this piece of plastic with an emulator inside, just to play starfox2, you might wanna check out the rom first. Just my advice to anyone whos buying the mini JUST for starfox2. It woulda been cool if it were significantly different, but thats not the case. Cool.

    What did you expect from Nintendo?.... I expect it to be an snes. I didnt expect them ti add much to the games... It's your own damn fault for buying an $80 emulator in a snes shell for one game :rofl2:
    You could also play the other 20 games it comes with :rofl2::rofl2: Then it's not a waste.

    Translation "I'm an entitled pirate. You should be too and not support Nintendo!"
    Anyways, most people that wanted just Star fox 2 were just going to play it through an emulator. I, however, wanted one because I haven't gotten to play a lot of the games on the SNES so this was a great opportunity to play them legitimately as possible without actually buying all the games and a SNES. Plus most people are going to buy this out of nostalgia also.

    And you gave zero reasoning to why it sucks. I though it was pretty good Imo from the few minutes I've gotten to play, my complaints would be framerate and the dogfights against the separate star wolf members being meh. But other than that, I'm extremely impressed by what they were able to pull off on that kinda hardware. It still boggles my mind.

    Yes.. yes you are. The fricken rom was released BEFORE the SNES classic came out last night.

    Yet you make a huge post whining and acting like an entitled git.

    If you didn't want to buy it.. Don't fucking buy it. But other people may have wanted to hack it.. Or just have one. Point is it was none of your damned business so stop being a entitled ass.

    Same reaction when they released Earthbound Beginning. Well, it was even more disappointing.
    They took the prototype ROM, changed a single byte in the header, and sold it on the eShop.

    But hey, that was kinda expected.

    So was this. It's Nintendo, after all, and the people who actually created the game had no idea this was happening.

    The controls suck so hard:D but well that’s all bad I can say about i.

    But I didn’t buy it because of star fox 2 .. I did not like the first one anyway. But earthbound and Mario games rock xD

    I worry about you OP. It's common knowledge that the Starfox 2 beta was nearly completed. It's also to be expected that they'd change a little in game and tweak some settings to call it a final release. I seriously don't know what you're expecting here. You paid $80 for one game?... Or did you just pirate and assume your opinion applies to everyone?

    Honestly, it was just marketing for nintendo to get people to want it more. If it was just a $8 on virtual console, it would probably just made less money than the snes classic. But people didn't buy snes classic for one game, they bought for various reasons.
    • Quality emulation legally by nintendo
    • Retro resurrection (Nostalgia)
    • Probably the box art and as collectors items
    • comes with rewind feature and 2 controllers to play with friends and family with ease and in HD no less.
    Is not like is a rushed cash grab, is some quality to it even though is just a bunch of games from the past. People actually like this stuff and don't always rush to new things cause of stuff like "It has unreleased star fox 2 and can't wait for the mods for my snes classic"

    People have different reasons, you can share yours but don't assume others as is just causing more negativity upon discussion. I'm sure it will be on Switch VC (maybe even wii u or 3ds) for people who didn't wanna spend $80 for the snes classic, but enjoy the little emulation box as a whole than just for one game. Is probably like people who go to humble bundle to buy a single game for a lower price and then disregard the other games in the bundle. O_O

    To be fair, the SNES mini is basically the only way to play the game legally. I personally want to know what the hacking scene will be like behind this system or if it will just be part of the NES mini hacking scene.

    Did you honestly think they would do anything to it? No, they simply took the same old rom and used it to reel in cash.

    my dad works for nintendo.
    it's still a waste, 80 bucks for only 20 games....
    nintendo could not be stupid and release the entire library in it, it would be selling like cupcakes..
