I always loved Metroid 1 on the NES but was too young and not good at games to ever get far in it, so I've always had a soft spot for it, despite never playing another Metroid game till Super Metroid on the Wii U and loving it. So now I've played Metroid 1 (unbeaten but a lot), Super and Zero Mission, never played a Prime.

I played this through on my Anbernic handheld rom thing, but I have Fusion on a real cart tho so I'll play it there. Maybe I'll miss the save states hah

I didn't really have a Nintendo console (I had a GBA and DS) between the N64 and the Wii U. I was in college when the Wii was out and had a roommate who had it but I kind of didn't play a lot of videogames between the DS/PS2 and (lol:) the Wii U and 3DS

Get a 3DS/2DS and jailbreak it imo then you can emulate all of that stuff and play 3DS games too

Yeah I've never played a single prime game either. I want them released on switch so badly. Would be an instant purchase.

Yeah it seems unlikely. And even if they do it probably won't include any game that has gotten/could get an HD re-release (Mario 64, OoT, Majora's Mask).


The rumor was it'd be a premium tier of Nintendo Online, and if Nintendo could get people paying $10 every month, I could see them putting out the good stuff, albeit maybe in a drip rather than one big splash.

Charge more for unplayable unloved n64 games? I dunno. No one wants to go back to first gen 3d struggles

$84 is not actually THAT bad. it's not like having to pay $300+ for a 3ds or vita due to pandemic insanity
