Be a good way to get some goodwill from the fans and some extra wonga to cheer up the shareholders.



Something will come in Septemner. They see it as an incentive to get people to sign up again.

I hope it is N64 games but it could easily just be game boy games.


I’d be all over N64 and GameBoy appearing on the Switch Online sub, while some of the NES and SNES games appeal to me it was the N64 and GameBoy which got me into gaming so do have much fonder memories of some of those titles. They could string them out over the next two years as well as they won’t put both on there at the same time even though there is no reason why they couldn’t. Hopefully if they did put the GameBoy on there it’d include GameBoy, GB Colour and GB Advance rather than them all having their own separate apps.

What is the big issue with this happening? Seems insane to me with such a large back catalog to not make use of it like Playstation do. Granted some rights are easier than others but being able to play some classic N64 & such would be a great selling poin

They really should make use of it more, their back catalogue is full of great games that would make the online sub more worthwhile, even if you don’t play online that much. Obviously there is no reason why they couldn’t release the N64 and GameBoy apps this year but I don’t see it happening after we got the NES and then the SNES apps separately.

I'd love N64 games on the Switch. I'd probably like them to remaster Mario Sunshine and Mario Galaxy 1 and 2 first though.

But really as a massive N64 fan, there is always going to be a huge Goldeneye sized hole in any digital collection.

I've not read back any pages, has anyone tried Crysis? Is it worth it?

Digital only.


One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

Having just picked up Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair (at 50% off), I have to ask: how much more Donkey Kong could it possibly be?

The answer is none. None more Donkey Kong.

Seeing as Retro are off DK for now, would genuinely love Nintendo to get Playtonic on it.

I actually never got around to finishing it off but I definitely would have married Edelgard. :wub:

(My favourite character was actually Bernie but I don't think you can marry her if you play FemByleth.)
