All These Classic Mini Consoles With Pre-loaded Games Need To Stop!!!

Don’t get me wrong, I like the idea of re-releasing old consoles in a miniature form for all the people who missed them. But most of them are quite pointless since you can get most of these games on every system for the last 2 generations, except for the upcoming Sega Genesis Classic. But even that, there have been so many Genesis collections that it is completely redundant.

Why not, instead, do these video game companies just release a dedicated mini console that has nothing preloaded on it at all? Instead just let it have an internet connection to something like the PlayStation Store or Nintendo eShop where games of that console can be purchased for cheap. Instead of being forced to have 20-30 games, why not give gamers a huge selection, ideally eventually getting the whole libraries of these systems on there. Yes, I know that is an unrealistic amount of work, but it’s better than releasing the same classic games over and over again on every new console, scamming people into buying them multiple times.

Imagine just buying a cheap NES Classic with no games. You plug it in, hook it up to the internet, search for a game you want, and bam! it is there. Now you have the liberty of searching for every game that ever came out on the system, and you have it forever. If these companies continued to support these mini consoles, then there would be no need to re-release these games every few years on different consoles.

It would be great to buy an SNES classic with nothing preloaded onto it, because I have almost every game on the classic. Instead of buying games I already own, I can search for the games I missed and play them on a dedicated SNES platform where I can digitally buy any SNES game ever made.

Right now I am at the mercy of what has been ported to Wii and Wii U, or else finding a very old copy on eBay or a very expensive copy.

Just think of these companies as physically re-releasing these consoles all over again, and now you have the ability to buy any and all the games you desire, on a system that is capable of running with today’s technology. And if possible, have it able to play all the old cartridges and disks from the original system, which would mean compromising the “mini” part to an extent, but oh well, that’s something we are not really worried about I would venture to say.

Super Smash Bros Ultimate- Who Will The DLC Characters Be?

A few months ago, I posted a list of some of my most wanted characters.

So now that the entire roster has been revealed, save for the 5 mysterious post launch characters, let’s see how I lucked out.

First off I said I hoped all the characters come back, and what do you know? They are. I said everyone except Young Link and Pichu, but we even got them, so it’s pretty awesome.

Paper Mario

paper_mario_wii

Nowhere to be seen. He has been my most wanted since Brawl was announced. I hope they make him one of the characters.

Dark Samus

Well here is a win…sort of. While I am happy she…he…it?… is in the game, they made her an echo of Samus, which is disappointing because she has such an incredible move set to pull from. I mean, her assist trophy displayed that in Wii U/3DS.

Simon Belmont

Another long time wanted is in the game! Can’t wait, he looks awesome!

Sora

Sora_KHIII

Nothing yet, but maybe they will time his release around that with Kingdom Hearts 3? That would be incredible.

Luigi from Luigi’s Mansion

Nope. Luigi is still just the weird slight Mario clone that isn’t anything like Mario anymore.

Sonic & Tails

My dream team is not a reality. Bummer.

Viewtiful Joe

Another perfect character for the smash bros universe is nowhere to be seen. Henshin a no no baby.

Wonder Red

Wonder-Red

A great game on Wii U that went completely under the radar. I guess it’s not surprising he didn’t make it in. But maybe DLC alongside a surprise Switch port would be nice.

Dixie Kong

Not as a stand alone or tag team with Diddy. Just a spirit. But they just might deem her as a worthy extra…

Zero

Zero_Assist_Trophy

Well he made it in as an assist trophy at least. I guess that’s better than nothing.

So looking at this, none of my hopes were fulfilled for the most part. I got Simon, an echo fighter and an assist trophy, and the rest…nothing. Oh well, I’m still excited about all the new additions anyway.

Hopefully I will get lucky and a few of these guys will join the roster with the DLC content.
