Nintendo's NES Classic Edition mini console w/ HDMI & 30 games is coming November 11th!

I want!

 

http://www.nintendo.com/nes-classic

https://www.facebook.com/notes/nintendo/relive-past-glories-with-nintendos-ultimate-retro-gaming-experience/1069837193100733

 

The list of included games:

 

  • 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
  • Ghost'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
  • Super Mario Bros.
  • Super Mario Bros.  2
  • Super Mario Bros.  3
  • Tecmo Bowl

It's a shame it isn't compatible with the original cartridges. Super C but no Contra? They left off the best Castlevania. Hopefully they offer the option to download additional titles from a Virtual Console-esque store. What say you?

Who's Mr. Dream?
post #3 of 128

I posted this in the COOL SHIT thread.  I want this thing NOW.

 

The only problem that I see is that they're gonna have a hard time making enough of these to keep up with the demand.  A $60 price point will make this attractive to anyone and everyone, and I predict that there will be a massive shortage of these for Christmas.  People will be putting them on eBay for $120 and getting it.

I dunno. Not to pee on their parade, but I can get a Chinese clone (which are really getting quite accurate these days) on eBay for $20, have $40 left over for games, and be able to play absolutely any damn thing I want on it...
post #5 of 128
I still have my NES and used to buy old games on eBay. Trouble was, many of them wouldn't work, and it's kind of embarrassing to email a guy and be like, "Hey, you sold me a bum copy of 'Popeye.' I want my $3.99 back!"

FYI: Nintendo's contract with Mike Tyson expired before his conviction. They didn't renew because he lost the title to James "Buster" Douglas.

This looks really cute as a novelty gift and all... but I really don't see myself actually playing it.  

 

ENJOY, all!

Fraid, I am disappointed in you for creating a situation where I almost Thumbs Up a Barry post.

Great, great memories of TECMO BOWL.  We used to have tournaments of that game at my fraternity house that got quite competitive.

 

I still remember when SUPER MARIO 3 came out.  One of my brothers bought it and another brother borrowed it at something like 10pm one weekday evening.  That brother emerged from his room at something like 11am the next day with the cartridge.  'I finished it.  It was good.'

I'll play through the entirety of Super Mario All Stars once every year or so, so I'm looking forward to this.

 

Wish there were something like a premium model that came with Mega Man, Ninja Turtles, Dragon Warrior, Bionic Commando and Tetris.

 

An SNES version of this with Mario World, Zelda ALTTP, Yoshi's Island, Super Castlevania, Super Metroid, etc would kill.

 

So yeah, cool thing made me want cooler things instead of being happy about the cool thing we got.  Thanks society.

I can't imagine Nintendo isn't already working on SNES and N64 versions.

A SNES with the SUPER STAR WARS games on it would be amazing.

sorry.  You served up an easy one.

Ninja Gaiden's a game I was pretty terrible at.
post #20 of 128
It's cute, but I built a Pi that does that plus SNES, Genesis, GB, GBA, Mame, Atari, Coleco, etc for only a little more than this - including controllers and all the extras in a Pi (bluetooth, USB ports, as many save states as I want etc).

Being legitimately good at Ninja Gaiden is still the single strongest indicator of autism recognized by the DSM-5.

It's still a good game. All three of them are really. Even though that third one is nigh impossible.

I hope what Schwartz just said isn't true because...I guess that would explain a lot..
post #23 of 128
I had a friend in the old neighborhood who was good at Ninja Gaiden. But he never went outside.
post #24 of 128
Mega Man 2, the first Zeldas, Mike Tysons Punch Out!, Castlevanias and 3 Super Marios makes this worth it immediately.. The Mega Man 2 soundtrack is fucking 8 bit bliss.
post #25 of 128
I think I beat Mega Man 2. It was 2 or 3.
post #26 of 128
I beat Megaman 2 once. Never have managed to do it since. The final boss is just an evil, evil little bastard, plus the slowdown and flickering makes it harder than hell to judge where anything will be.

Goddamn great game, though, for sure.
post #27 of 128
Mega Man 2 is the easiest of all the Mega Man games to beat. If you've ever beaten the original, you've obviously made a pact of some sort with a higher power..
post #28 of 128
I was catastrophically lousy at most video games. I didn't beat Super Mario Bros. until I was in college.

Not that I played it every day for 15 years, but still.
post #29 of 128
I've still never beaten SMB1. 2 and 3 (which is still one of the best games ever) yes. But level 8 in the original SMB is downright sadistic..
post #30 of 128
I've made it to the final boss in SMB 2, but just like in life, I can never win.

SMB 3 is the easiest of the trilogy. I beat that when I was a young 'un.

Yellow Devil.

Fucking Yellow Devil.

I beat Super Mario Bros., but only in the GBC port where they allow you to save and continue from the beginning of a world. I can't begin to fathom anybody beating it in one go, unless they're really good at farming for extra lives (there's this one level - I think 3-1 - where you can time it just right and keep kicking a shell into a wall until you get an endless string of 1-ups for it until the clock runs out...)
post #32 of 128
I used to play Contra with another kid in the old neighborhood. I'd burn through all 29 of my lives then steal one of his during the final boss fight.

That one-eyed thing that would fly back and forth across the room a piece at a time? Arrrrrrgh!! MotherFUCK that thing..
post #34 of 128

How wonderful but those features they talk about have been available in emulators for years.  Why, I'll just fire mine up and play some Contra right now. :D

Beat it like you got hair on your chest....without the code..

The NES controller with Wiimote-compatible plug being available for $10 is the coolest part of this to me.

 

The system isn't for me (a semi-tech savvy nerd with all the current Nintendo hardware), but I can see how it's a cool, reasonably priced option for people who just want to jump back into some NES gaming with no hassle. Those games are all 5 or 6 bucks individually on the Nintendo eShop, too.

 

If you care about visual quality, I'd wait for reviews before buying this. Nintendo has been making some puzzling decision with emulation on their Wii U VC releases. They purposely lowered the gamma output to make some of the games look dark and shitty compared to the more bright and vibrant original and Wii VC releases. How the HDMI scaling will work with the original NES resolution of 256x240, and if there will be filtering or scanline options remains a question.

 

My personal emulation system of choice is a homebrew enabled Wii. You can get the homebrew working with a few easy steps by loading a file onto an SD card. I've got all the games I need for every system on one SD card, and I can use Gamecube controllers and all the Wii/Classic controllers.

Besides the aforementioned Contra, my brother-in-law said, "Where's RBI Baseball?"

 

I concur, and surprised by the omission of Tetris myself and Pro Wrestling always held a special place in my 8-bit pixelated heart. But it's a great list overall and this will be the #1 selling item this Christmas. I'm getting one for myself and the fiancee and one for my nieces/nephew. Everyone I've spoken to has also said they plan on buying several for gifts and personal usage.

In honor of the NES Mini release, Nintendo just made the first 13 years of Nintendo Power available online for free

I am in nostalgia overload.

 

Please send help.

 

Actually, don't.

post #41 of 128

It's tempting to blow all of the color toner on this.

post #42 of 128

Ah, this reminds me of those heady days in early 1999 when I thought Donkey Kong 64 was going to be awesome. Haha, nope.

 

I remember they had a cool issue after Mario 64 came out in '96 where they went into detail about the level layouts. And of course, there's the clay art covers everyone remembers from the early 90s.

 

I might dip into the 1998 issues to see if they had anything on the making of F-Zero X. 1997 might also have some amusing speculation on the sure to be amazing 64DD version of Ocarina Of Time.

post #43 of 128

...I love Donkey Kong 64.

post #44 of 128

I really wish I could get into it more, but the character switching ruined the masterful template set by Banjo Kazooie. Go back to the character switcher to flip this switch, go back to the character switcher to grab these thingies...over and over for the entire game.

 

I couldn't force myself to beat Banjo Tooie after investing 40 or 50 hours into it, and I still like that one more than DK64.

 

I'm hard up for some classic Rare though, so maybe one day I will crack and buy DK64 on the WiiU eshop.

 

On the flipside, I still love Jet Force Gemini (*ignoring the whole "save every tribal" endgame, which is like physically impossible to actually do).

post #45 of 128

I can totally see why someone would dislike DK64. It is mindless collecting. That just appeals to the part of me that enjoys that from a game from time to time. It's why I still enjoy the Assassin's Creed games.

 

I wish they'd release DK64 on the 3DS though. Perfect handheld game for waiting rooms, planes, etc.

post #46 of 128
Man, y'all are totally speaking Greek to me. I dropped out of the whole video game thing around the time SNES played out. With some occasional Goldeneye here and there because who DIDN'T love that game?

Love me some old school NES though..

Pretty much. I didn't really appreciate the N64 at all until years after the fact. I think it had to do with getting one and revisiting just the good stuff with the benefit of hindsight; at the time, playing on friends' systems, it was at best even odds whether you'd get one of the good titles or one of the shitty ones, because only a handful of console developers really had a handle on how to do 3D games well at that point, and just as few console gamers knew what to look for in them. (I think the same thing was pretty much true for the Playstation, but nobody I knew had one until years later, so I only had the hindsight view of it.) Plus there was the controller-for-three-armed-space-aliens issue. But that said, there are some genuinely damn good games on the N64.
post #48 of 128
I sold my N64 with controller pak, three extra controllers all with rumble paks and 15+ games in late '99 to add a couple hundred to my growing engagement ring fund for my now ex wife.

I really should have kept the system instead.
post #49 of 128
Shoot I didn't even BUY one until late into '99..
post #50 of 128
Whoa... did you buy it from a guy with squealing brakes on a Honda Prelude in a parking lot in Atlanta?
