Wow love Divinity 2 picture above
Downloaded Super Kirby Clash to play with my son who is super into Kirby lately, and definitely gonna get those SNES games.
D2, Creature in the Well, Blasphemous.
When do the SNES games go live i dont see the app in the store or on the switch online section
I had a hard time finding them, too. Had to download Nintendo Entertainment System Switch Online then they are all there.
@KnightWolf Probably at 12 Noon Eastern when the usually eshop updates.
I want to try River City Girls, even with a growing backlog already. This might be the first week I do not get a retro Arcade release of some kind, video game pinball doesn't interest me. Of course there are the SNES games too.
Poor Daemon x Machina. Nobody seems to care about it anymore.
SNES game list looks the best. I wish Nintendo would keep making SNES style games. I prefer it over their 3D stuff. Well, at least since the N64. The N64 is awesome!
While I’m disappointed in the lack of rumble in Final Fantasy VIII Remastered, it has been a blast to play through again. Hope they add it in a patch.
Glad to see love for Divinity Original Sin 2 on the Switch.
Go on EA, keep spitting out lies about how no one wants your games on Switch. 🙄 There are tons of Multiplatform games on Switch that say otherwise.
So much...... stuff.
Is Hopping girl KOHANE a perv game?
But I just bought the amazing ARPG classic Torchlight 2...now the CRPG masterpiece Divinity 2?
Well, at least here I won't be double dipping...I played and loved Divinity Original Sin on PC, but never get around to playing Divinty OS2...
Money is a little tight right now, so I'll probably wait for a sale and give my backlog some love...I still have loads to do in Disgaea 5...which I also picked up on sale recently as my first introduction to a game in that series. (spoiler alert - it's fun!)
Downloaded Super Kirby Clash last night. Very happy to see this one show up, the 3DS version is my favorite free-to-play 3DS game. Also waiting for SNES Online to show up.
Nothing for me. I just nabbed Astral Chain and that game has me hooked. I'm hoping to be done with it or at least make enough progress that I can put it down for a while by the time DxM drops.
Anyone know what time the SNES Online will show up in PST?
Super Kirby Clash because it's free to start so why not. Waiting for the SNES games to go live. I'll hold out for the physical release of Deadly Premonition Origins.
Creature In The Well, and Snes games for me. Still making great progress in astral chain(on file 8). Trying to button it up soon so i can play creature in the well, and some snes games before links awakening and ori come out. Not to mention im eyeing jet kave and Sydney Hunter too this month. Might not have the money or time for everything..
I have my limited run River City Girls pre-ordered, I can't wait to get my hands on that one!!!
Super Kirby Clash. Happy they have online play as well so I can team up with others when my RL friends aren't around.
Snes NSO too with one Snes controller when it becomes available.
Fantastic week. I'm prepping myself for all that SNES goodness (and also mangling my Nintendo Online account to get the Japanese version), really digging Super Kirby Clash (I finally have a use for my ridiculous, amiibo collection), and just stoked for all the new stuff.
I'm drooling for a SNES controller. HEH HEH!
I think Super Soccer was re-released on the Japanese version of the SNES Mini. It (or one of its many Japanese sequels) might've been released on VC in Japan (being that it is a Human game, of which whoever owns their games (Spike Chunsoft?) had been busy re-releasing them.)
@OnBeingHuman Still waiting for it to show up in eastern standard time. it shows up at online shop link but all it says is "available sept 5th" no option to acquire yet
Super Kirby Clash has been a surprise for me (my clearance Amiibo cards are being tested tonight). SNES Nintendo Switch Online will probably push everything else aside for a while since there is a Super Metroid, Link to the Past, and Breath of Fire to dig into.
Since I never played Breath of Fire before, that one will probably take the most time. Going to go old school and attempt it without using the internet.
Eventually I'll get Bulletstorm and FFVIII. Not now though. Spyro will probably be my next buy.
I'd like to get Divinity: Original Sin 2, & FFVIII, but I have no money this week.
20 a year A YEAR!! for regular nes and SNES games? Nintendo online just got legit.
I'm buried under the avalanche of games! Send help.
time to start harvesting g e m a p p l e s
@GrailUK That's only if you don't have any friends. With 7 other friends, there are 8 of us on the family plan, we've only been paying 4.37 a year!
@DoomTurtle That's incredible. In a period where companies are fleecing folk, it's so amazing to see Nintendo have an "at no additional cost' strat. Just brilliant. I love this company.
@NintendoByNature Sorry to burden you with more choices, but have you seen Blasphemous yet? It’s a season of hard choices, but that one looks really promising. Like Bloodborne and Castlevania had a bloody beautiful baby.
Zero of this has a chance in hell for my time or money... a SNES ROM dump, Really? 🙄
That is OK. Loving Astral Chains (need to pick up FE again after) and it will be hard to get me out of our apartment after IceBorne hits tomorrow.
@NotTelevision dude! I Saw that and was definitely interested but i honestly don't think i can squeeze it in. I'm a huge castlevania fan too. More classic style over Metroidvania style but i do love metroidvania either way. Let me break it down for you so you can see the method of my" needing to be picky "madness this month.
Astral chain (I'm counting it as September) $50
Creature in the well- $13.50
Ori and the blind forest- $20 (?) Do we know yet? I think it was $20 elsewhere
Links awakening dreamer edition $70
That's $155, also add $20 for nso( honestly I might have to wait to resub due to the Games I want to play first and foremost)
Here's what else i want that i might just cave in and buy
Jet Kave $20 ( check this out of you love any kind of platformer) it looks like dkc with a new coat of paint plus action
Sydney Hunter $20 ( think zelda 2 meets Indiana Jones)
Castle crashers $15
There's prob others im forgetting. I forgot to ask, can i borrow some cash 😉 lol
I'm definitely replaying through Demon's Crest and probably Joe & Mac 2, love some of the more unique titles that are not as common or on SNES classic already. Other than that picking up FFVIII at some point, might hold off and grab it when it eventually gets some sort of discount though.
@NintendoByNature Oh yeah good call man. Creature in the Well I’ve also been keeping an eye on, as it looks like a really interesting concept.
I’ve beaten Ori, so not going to double dip on that one, but enjoyed it for the most part.
It’s going to be hard to pass on Castle Crashers at that price as well. It’s a really fun game and even better with friends over.
Thanks for letting me know about those other games. I think I’ve heard of Jet Kave on this site, but anything Donkey Kong I’m down for.
I’m getting Link’s Awakening as well. Going to be the next big one for me.
So yeah juggling all these games, the SNES ones, and Astral Chain...
I might just leave poor Link on the shelf for a while and awaken him in October . I never thought I’d say that, but I really want to give that game my 100% attention and not think about needing to divert my attention from it.
Btw, sorry I’m strapped for cash as well. 😅
@NotTelevision yea it's tough to sort out your for sures and your maybes when it's jam packed like this. Creature I preordered but if I could do it all over again, i wouldve waited for reviews. Plus there's other games that got announced for September after i preordered it..doh! Still looks good though. Hyper light drifter and pin ball is what i gather from it. Ori is day 1 as I never played it and I'm beyond hyped for it. So you had me raging when you said link was taking a back seat, but then you followed it up with you want to give it all the attention it deserves, so with that said, I'll allow it 😉. Full disclosure, I HAVE to give link a full 1 week pass (8 days actually). Links awakening drops on the 20th as you know, my birthday is the 28th, that's my gift from the wife and kids, so needless to say, you and I will have to watch everyone else gloat about how great the game is while we remained sidelined 😑. Now if I had to put these next three in order, it would be from most likely to purchase to least likely, it's Sydney Hunter, jet kave at 2 (only because im getting a similar game in yooka coming out a few weeks later), then castle crashers. I wanted spyro and contra but.....oh well. It'll have to wait. Part of me wants to fire up alttp for the 4th or 5th time tonight, but do i really need to with links awakening approaching? Prob not. Might want to play some super metroid though as I never finished it. Might give demons crest a look too. I'm so torn if i want to hold off on re-subbing or not. It's prob best to re-sub and save on the other games i wanted to buy and just play snes ones first until the other ones drop in price. Decisions are getting crazy these days.
Here we are after 4pm eastern, still not available. guess they meant a different september 5th, 2019 for SNES games
I know others have claimed to get it, but I definitely can't get it from switch itself or even web browser in store. in web browser i can at least pull it up, but it just says "available sept 5th" with no option to add. on switch, it cannot even be found (but everything else added sept 5th can be)
Since launch I bought a Nintendo Switch then sold in 6 months as I got bored with not many games I wanted, then I purchased again 10 months in and sold again as the games variety for me was underwhelming.
Now..... I purchased a switch again 3 months ago and I can say i will never be selling it again, I can’t believe how good the games library is now! I’m playing every day even a little without fail
I’m not sure what’s going on, but I can’t seem to access the snes games on the switch.
....So we're just pretending the Super Kirby Clash game doesn't exist then?
Are the snes games on yet? I couldn’t find them
@Johnnyfive same here
@NintendoByNature Ohh yeah. I have the same feeling about Lttp. I’ve already played through four Zelda games this year if I include Cadence of Hyrule. I don’t need to play LttP, but it may be hard not to.
I’ve never actually played Link’s Awakening so I want to go into it not knowing anything. What I’ll do is play the one on Switch and then go back and play the other on Gameboy. At my parent’s house is still the original Gameboy from 1989, just gotta go dig that one out of the closet.
Yeah man but Super Metroid. One of my favorite games. Don’t be afraid to use a guide to get through some parts if you’re stuck. I like the GBA ones a lot , but SM feels so unpredictable in comparison. It’s the most tense of the 2d games for sure.
Ohh yeah, happy early birthday. I had to work all day on mine, so hope you have a better one.
@NotTelevision alttp is in my top 5 zelda games. Links awakening is my 2nd favorite 2d zelda behind ALBW, you Will LOVE links awakening if you're a 2d zelda guy. It's so fluid and the map is nice and small but doesn't feel underwhelming. I've beaten the dx version 4 or 5 times and it never gets old. I have an og gameboy but i dont feel like spending the coin on an original cart. So i play it on 2ds. I'm actually jealous you're experiencing the remake as your first time with the game. Wish I could have that same feeling lol. Thanks for the bday wishes
Oh yea and for SM, i will use a guide. Not shy about that. I've beaten only 2 2d Metroids to date so I'm kinda a newbie
Just the SNES games for me this week.
Everybody should be getting Divinity Original Sin 2.
