    I've been waiting years and years to finally be able to play Eliminator Boat Duel on the go officially. Thanks so much Nintendo!

    And the super exciting big thrill of it all, there's a great game coming to the Nintendo Switch Online service! Better than Super Mario RPG, better than Super Metroid, even better than Star Fox! It's...

    Wait for it...

    POP'N TWINBEE!!!

    Note the heavy sarcasm. Who the heck has even heard of these games?!?

    True, but that doesn't mean I don't have Switch Online (I do) and don't purchase Switch games (I did). While I agree that licensing is possibly at play here, it's nothing that can't be solved when there's a will to do so.
    I'm sure you didn't buy the Switch with a burning desire of playing those sweet 8/16 bit era games. And I'm positively sure you won't spend more that a few minutes trying out a game that from the get go doesn't interest you in the least.

    People complain about what they are able to complain about. And Nintendo, in this regard, could do so much better. Even releasing all of their first party games from both systems would be a better move. It's not like they don't have options.
    Pop 'N TwinBee is a great game.

    .....Plenty of us [probably older members] have not only heard of, but really enjoyed Pop'n Twinbee, so that's a good addition. Maybe we'll get Rainbow Bell Adventures which was a decent platformer that the US didn't get?? Smash Tennis was also good, but kind of useless as it's bettered by Super Tennis really. More interesting is the games come from Konami and Namco - Konami in particular have an excellent library of SNES games that we might end up seeing - pity most fall either into Castlevania/Contra which they're selling themselves, then there's the licensed stuff they don't own now, like Turtles and Tiny Toons...... so about 2 games left then :lol:. No really, we might see the Goemon games, or the Parodius ones.. maybe even a bit of Sparkster.

    Other games like ie Ocean titles - you've got to understand the company (and its property ...and many Ocean games were movie licenses which are now out of the question) are gone - acquiring the rights to publish these games as a 'freebies' part of on online subscription is never going to happen - we're only going to end up with games either owned by Nintendo themselves or the lower tier releases from 3rd parties who know they won't make any money from them otherwise (Nintendo's probably only giving them a pittance for each game after all) So don't expect to see Chrono Trigger up there anytime for example!

    Nintendo should've gone the Disney Plus route with the SNES/NES library rather than this pathetic drip-feed we're getting.

    I love how mad people are because they don't realize that Nintendo is at the mercy of developer rights holdings. They were just the publisher for most of these games. You want more of the popular classics? Go haraign the development studios. Nintendo has nothing to do with this.

    In Nintendo's defense, all the decent games left are either second- or third-party games. It's hard to license good games on a service as crappy as NSO.

    They're only giving us TWO games per platform, and THIS is what they choose?? This is an absolute joke. I already have the displeasure of having an NSO and I still never touch these shitty emulators with always-online DRM.

    I honestly thought they'd do something more interesting for april fool's..

    It's February? They're actually calling this good enough?
    Are you fucking kidding me? Eliminator Boat Duel is a fun game, but that doesn't really improve the complete fucking barren wasteland that is the NES and SNES NSO apps. Y'know what the Super Nintendo was famous for? Its RPGs. I'm not even a big RPG guy and I'm pissed there's not more RPGs here, and if it's for licensing reasons, be transparent about that. Don't just unload this pile of ass ham and say "Well, get excited about it 'cause we're not doin' anything else for another two months! Or more!" Is there really no pride left in this service? Do they just know people will buy it anyway 'cause they're strongarmed to, if they wanna use their Switches online?

    I blame this retarded as fucking generation playing there xboxs paying for what ever there told to cause mommy and daddy buys it for them instead of saying fuck that shit im buying ps3. Now sony and nintendo thinks its ok to do it and still these stupid fucks pay for it. Quit paying for it and quit buying games that are heavy online it wont take long and developers will realize why.

    That's not the point. Nintendo are basically giving leftovers.

    Pop TwinBee is a lot of fun, but the rest is kinda.. eh.

    Eliminator Boat Fuel while I never played it, it looks like the racing boat stages of Micro Machines from SEGA MD.

    Why people keep acting like emulators aren't a thing and this isn't just scam?
