    Third party selection for this so far is even worse than on NES Classic. Who knows if they are even working to secure more valuable titles.

    Agreed, the way they've handled it sucks, there's no defending.

    I suspect we wont start seeing many third party titles until the first/second party well dries up.

    I believe companies like HAL and Retro Studios are considered second party.
    Games not handled by the main company themselves (Nintendo), but instead given to another company to develop, like they have done for the Kirby and Metroid Prime games.

    No bro, PSN Plus games are yours only if you keep paying for the subscription. So no, you have nothing. Only thing that is yours is when they give you discounts on games and then you buy them, the rest is locked to your PS Plus account. Here in my country is like 80 dollars a year, fucking crazy, for that I rather buy a gaming PC.

    The only console that makes sense this time around is the Switch, where you actually insert your game and that's it, you are playing (a real console). Nintendo Online system sucks though.

    I understand why nes online is a thing and it's not a bad marketing strat for people who don't have roms (so most people). I just feel like they could make it a little more special with some shaders, AA, or anything else really. NES Emu on switch can definitely taker few shaders

    Then, I apologise for my mistake. I was under the impression that it worked differently. But still, it's a recent game.

    At least you could play your old VC on vWii and they had discounted upgrades to Wii U VC to get extra features like gamepad play. But even if you weren't willing to pay for that the games would work just the same as they had on vWii.
    I agree though, there should be crossplay, not just for VC games but also for retail games released on both Wii U and Switch (which there are quite a few of) or at the very least a heavy discount on the Switch version if you already own the Wii U version, something like 50-75%. My Nintendo accounts can already be linked with NNIDs so it would be a simple thing to add a discount on Switch eShop if you either own the digital version on Wii U, or register the physical copy's serial number on their website.

    Nothing noteworthy here, certainly nothing worthy of subscribing to a “service”

    PSPlus would be a lot better if they offered four games per month and you got to choose two out of the four to keep. As it is with the random selections, it would be quick to fill up my library with junk that I'm never gonna play, and/or a lot of games I already own on other platforms. I prefer to curate my own library, and I'd prefer to pay nothing for online services, but since I play Smash Ultimate obsessively and Nintendo's service is by far the cheapest, it made my decision easy.

    It's too bad the n3DS doesn't have something similar to this. I'd definitely subscribe to it.

    Don't see the point in complaining about the selection when the emulator itself remains an absolute dumpster fire (all the extra trash they throw on screen, game desaturation, no remappable inputs).

    Kirbys adventure is good. I have a Mint factory sealed copy.
    I remember how hard it was for my parents to get a copy of mario 2 when it was released...
