If you were on eBay why not get an original SNES and the games? I mean...

FWIW, i got my SNES classic a week early when it appeared my local Wal Mart broke street date and it wasn't register blocked when I bought it. I also saw a HUGE restock wave of them a few weeks ago with a decent amount of units at Wal Mart and Best Buy. I would assume one more wave might hit store shelves before Christmas.

Yeah, my local Walmart had two last time I went in there (about a week ago). I bet you'll have a shot depending on where you live/when you check. It was the same with Switch...there are four Best Buys around Toledo and the one I frequent had 6 in stock when I came in about a month after release.

I watched that whole video and could only recognize one new game...am I missing something? Everything seems to be just remakes of games that can fit on the small game carts at the moment. I am enjoying Xeno 2 for sure, but I still feel like I'm missing something with the Switch paranoia.

Kirby, Mario Tennis Aces, Fe, and maybe Celeste are all unreleased games.

I probably should've clarified with tentpole/non-indie game. I did forget about Kirby, but I'm not sure side-scrolling platformers are really something a console wants to use as full promotional items. They bring us back because that's what we grew up on (I'm thrilled to have the Mega Man collections on Switch even if they are just re-releases), but the younger generation doesn't find any level of attachment. They seem to be much more excited about open-world games or high level action games, rather than the side scrollers or the past.

I am happy to see Ys get a port, but I won't buy it...already played it once, no need to re-buy. Was really hoping that they would have some information about the new Fire Emblem game...that's going to be a really burner based on how well the last few handheld releases have done.

RE: OT: The Official Video Game Discussion Thread
Ys was interesting but I think my ship sailed on that series after playing Ys I and II(TG16) on WiiVC back in the day and them never getting to III.

I bought Hyrule Warriors and the DLC for WiiU, hit a wall in a Death Mountain stage and never went back to it. I doubt I double dip.

Mario Tennis looks nice but I doubt I'd get it.

My brother has Pokken DX so the DLC he should like.

Odyssey DLC is so meh.... free...sure... but no new Kingdoms? A balloon finding mini game?

************

SURPRISES TO ME:

No Yoshi game info.

No paid online/Switch VC info.

I gather that Dark Souls thing is HUGE so...

Surprised not now but.....
--Smash Bros?
--Animal Crossing?
--Fire Emblem?

The WiiU ports chosen...

You should give Ys 8 another run...the series is made in a way that each can be played on their own, and IMO Ys has some of the best JRPG combat out there and the best/most consistently good soundtracks in video games in general.

People are already commenting on how the Balloon Finding DLC is just rehashing one of the bigger criticisms of Odyssey, the fact that most of the game completion is done by random find-a-whatever and not through any different mechanics.

Dark Souls really shouldn't be a big deal, but I guess it is to some people. That's a 7.5 year old game, so the fact that they're pumped they can port it really doesn't speak highly about the power of the console and the ability for the AAA multi-plats to be able to play natively on it.

The port selection does leave much to be desired, and I'm shocked that they left what many consider to be their big 2018 tentpoles (FE:16, Yoshi, and Smash) completely without mention. Seems like an odd way to try to build on the console momentum if you ask me.

This is an early 2018 slate for the most part. Big guns will be announced close to and at E3. Plus we are assuming Pokémon will be the tentpole Holiday game.
