What games are you playing?
^^^ Just keep telling yourself it's the circle of life, BDR. :lol:

This ought to answer a few questions.

I really want a couple of those controllers!

What games are you playing?
Played some Spinal on the SNES version of Killer Instinct this morning. Sorta did it in preparation for Killer Instinct Gold which I'll be playing extensively in July. So the whole time I'm playing KI I'm thinking - what a shame that this game isn't going to be included in the SNES Classic Edition's lineup. Not that I believe it's a particularly good game or anything. It's just that I'm sure it would spark off a ton of nostalgia for a lot of folks given how big Killer Instinct was in the arcades and on the SNES back in the 90's.

Watcha Listenin' To?
Currently I'm obsessed with all things Killer Instinct so I'm listening and learning from this video.

The music is great, yeah, but it's also fun watching the creative process of making music for video games.

Would you buy an N64 Mini?
NES mini, SNES mini and even an N64 mini make sense to me but I can't see Nintendo carrying it out all the way to the GameCube. Not that I don't like the system but there just aren't enough iconic titles on the GC to justify it, in my extremely humble opinion. Besides, the original Wii provides access to the entire GC library so in a sense it's sorta a GameCube mini. :D

A Nintendo 64 Classic Edition at around $100 with two Wii-mote compatible controllers seems like an easy sell to me, however, since Super Smash Bros., Mario Kart 64, Wave Race 64 and the two Zeldas are still held in such high regard. You don't even have to be a Nintendo fanboy like most of us to appreciate the N64's perennial top ten. :lol:

@Grizz: you are humble ... and never in the back of the pack!! #MadMK8skillz
You're much too kind. :-8

Hey Andy, does the recent update to Deluxe appreciably improve the overall gameplay? I'm reading mixed reviews online.

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Patch Out Now, Here's What It Does

A new patch is now available for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. The Nintendo Switch racing game's second update, Version 1.2, makes a number of changes, some of which sound pretty significant.

For example, you can no longer use an item after it was used to block an attack. Additionally, the patch changes the Boomerang item so that it will return to the first slot, where possible, after it is caught.

For online matches, players who fall behind will receive even items that help them catch up more frequently. Additionally, no more than two Piranha Plants can go out as items at the same time on any course for online races.

Really Nintendo, it took you this long to finally address the item distribution issue for players who fall to the back of the pack! :facepalm:

A Super Nintendo that can easily be connected to a modern HDTV! No wonder the SNES mini is causing such a sensation.

To be honest, the NES mini didn't excite me very much. The SNES mini, on the other hand, actually has me VERY excited. The lineup of games on the NA version seems just about ideal. Sure, there are plenty of titles that could have been added but the ones that are included represent the perfect introduction to the systems library.

I already own all the games that will appear on the SNES mini but if I can get one for MSRP I'll probably pull the trigger. Let's just keep our fingers crossed that Nintendo can manufacture enough to meet demand.

Would you buy an N64 Mini?
Nintendo's mini line seems like a concession to casual gamers and collectors alike. Really hard to argue with the results as almost everybody who fancies themselves a gamer or collector wants one.

Mellowing out to what is probably my favorite Rolling Stones song.

I melt every time I hear that saxophone.

Would you buy an N64 Mini?

Oh I've had so many ideas for this since the nes mini was a thing. I would actually hope for the n64 mini to have GameCube controller ports instead of wiimote attachment ports.
If Nintendo made the controller ports for their mini systems USB, they could potentially manufacture those controllers forever because people would gladly pay top dollar so they could use them with emulators.

Everybody raves about the iBuffalo Super Famicom style USB controller but I'm sure most people would much rather have an official Nintendo SNES/SFC pad that supports USB. I know I would. :D

Would you buy an N64 Mini?
Nintendo seems to be aiming at making their minis pure nostalgia machines. With that in mind, I believe they'll find a way to get GoldenEye 007 on the N64 mini if they bother to produce it. I also suspect that Nintendo will need to get Killer Instinct Gold on the N64 mini since the original console's fighting game lineup was so thin. Neither is completely out of the question given that Donkey Kong Country is appearing on the SNES mini.

Would you buy an N64 Mini?
The N64 mini would have to support four players, right?

Anybody ready to guess which games will be included if the N64 mini becomes a reality?

More than likely the bonus game would be Sin and Punishment since Nintendo went through all the trouble of localizing it for the Virtual Console. :blink:

Would you buy an N64 Mini?
With the SNES mini now a certainty, we can safely assume that an N64 mini is a 2018 possibility. Really excited at the thought of having an official N64 controller that plugs in to the Wii-mote. :w00t:

I like your list but you're missing.

Mortal Kombat II

Star Fox 2

Super Castlevania IV

Castlevania: Dracula X

And my personal favorite - Weaponlord.

See why they call me the "Latter-day Nostradamus"? ;) Yes, Star Fox 2 is finally going to get an official release by way of the SNES Classic Edition. I missed the boat with Mortal Kombat II, Dracula X and Weaponlord, though. >_<

The lineup of games on the SNES mini is VERY good and those controllers look quite sexy indeed. Pre-order ASAP because these things are gonna go fast. Unless Nintendo can manufacture 10 million of them they're sure to become rare collector's items if for no other reason than the inclusion of Star Fox 2 on the system.

Super Nintendo Discussion
The news of the SNES mini bodes rather well for an N64 mini somewhere down the road, no? :huh:

The inclusion of Star Fox 2 will make the SNES mini an insta-buy for many folks but it's a tad disappointing that Mortal Kombat II isn't included in the mix. It's also curious that Street Fighter II Turbo is in the lineup and not Super Street Fighter II. I'm not complaining, though, because I think that Turbo is the better game.

Super Nintendo Discussion
The mini SNES Classic launches in September for $80

Nintendo has revealed details for the SNES Classic. The standalone mini console will feature 21 games, including Super Mario World, Earthbound, Super Mario Kart, and The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. But the most surprising inclusion is Star Fox 2, the unreleased sequel to the original Star Fox for SNES.

The Super NES Classic Edition will launch on September 29th for $79.99. Like its predecessor the NES Classic, it will allow players to easily play retro games on high-definition televisions, thanks to an HDMI connection.

The full list of games included on the SNES Classic follows:

Contra III: The Alien Wars
Donkey Kong Country
Final Fantasy III
Kirby Super Star
Kirby's Dream Course
The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past
Mega Man X
Secret of Mana
Star Fox
Star Fox 2
Street Fighter II Turbo: Hyper Fighting
Super Castlevania IV
Super Ghouls 'n Ghosts
Super Mario Kart
Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars
Super Mario World
Super Metroid
Super Punch-Out!!
Yoshi's Island

The Super NES Classic is Nintendo's follow-up to the NES Classic, which launched in fall 2016. The console was notoriously difficult to find due to limited stock, and was discontinued earlier this year.

Genius to include Star Fox 2 as a lot of people still haven't played it.

July Game of the Month Vote Off
Jun 25 2017, 05:26 AM
A couple more posts in this thread about why you think it should be game of the month and you'll prob have the whole site brainwashed with KI Gold propaganda.
Conan the Barbarian taught me that true power comes from the ability to control people's minds. :lol:

To my mind Killer Instinct Gold would make a great game of the month because it's a title not easily emulated on Project 64, Wii64 or even Retropie. It's probably easiest, if you don't own an Xbox One, just to play it on the actual N64 hardware which makes the physical KIG N64 cartridge a nice collectible and a game worth owning long after the month of July.

July Game of the Month Vote Off
Whatever the July game of the month ends up being, I hope people actually take the time to discuss it when it wins. :rollseyes:

BTW, the quick reference card that comes with KIG is a nice touch. I'm surprised that I didn't keep it in front of me back when I originally purchased the game at launch. Guess I didn't because I'm the kind of guy who hates to read instructions. :lol:

July Game of the Month Vote Off
Maybe my Killer Instinct Gold video retrospective will motivate people to vote for it. ^_^

I really need to get an HD camera. :lol:
