General Gaming News

Post by goldenphoenix » Fri Jul 15, 2016 3:27 am

Might as well create a thread for a catch all for news. Was inspired to create this because of Nintendo announcing the NES mini replica. It will retail for around $60 in the US and comes with an NES controller which apparently can be plugged into the wiimote if you want to use it for virtual console. It has 30 games preinstalled it (and that is all there will be, just the 30 games).

List of games are:

Balloon Fight
Bubble Bobble
Castlevania
Castlevania II: Simon's Quest
Donkey Kong
Donkey Kong Jr.
Double Dragon II: The Revenge
Dr. Mario
Excitebike
Final Fantasy
Galaga
Ghosts N Goblins
Gradius
Ice Climber
Kid Icarus
Kirby’s Adventure
Mario Bros.
Mega Man 2
Metroid
Ninja Gaiden
Pac-Man
Punch-Out!! Featuring Mr. Dream
StarTropics
Super C
Su.per Mario Bros
Super Mario Bros. 2
Super Mario Bros. 3
Tecmo Bowl
The Legend of Zelda
Zelda II: The Adventure of Link

I love this idea so much! Wired controllers and everything :)

The PAL version better not have the slowdown and borders! I doubt it though, as some of those games didn't have PAL releases.

I'm going to look at getting one of those for my young nephew for Christmas. Or myself.

I'm down for this. Seems cool and a good price per game. I wouldn't mind having such classics in a really neat looking box.

Valve released a statement in response to those CS:GO gambling websites

http://store.steampowered.com/news/22883/
a number of gambling sites started leveraging the Steam trading system, and there’s been some false assumptions about our involvement with these sites. We’d like to clarify that we have no business relationships with any of these sites. We have never received any revenue from them. And Steam does not have a system for turning in-game items into real world currency[...]

[...] [this] is not allowed by our API nor our user agreements. We are going to start sending notices to these sites requesting they cease operations through Steam, and further pursue the matter as necessary. Users should probably consider this information as they manage their in-game item inventory and trade activity.

I would definitely buy one of those NES Minis if it played carts! Even so, a very cool idea. :)

I'd love for Nintendo to release new, cheap yet quality, models of their cartridge systems.

So due to Pokemon GO Nintendo's stocks have doubled. Pretty amazing, I just hope Nintendo doesn't go all into Mobile gaming like Konami.
