Here are the results that I've seen published thus far:

My main takeaway from this?

There are way too many Star Wars nerd sites out there.

They're only going to make 12 of them.

Fortunately, Nintendo has learned their lesson from the NES Classic, and as such will be greatly increasing the production of SNES Classics.

Unfortunately, Nintendo has made the inexplicable business decision to ship all of those units to a single Kmart store located in Laramie, Wyoming.

If you send me the location of the McDonald's closest to you, I'll have them send over some burgers ASAP.

One of these days I'm gonna take you guys up on all the McDonald's bull**** you give me. I'm gonna post a video of myself eating Quarter Pounder after Quarter Pounder after Quarter Pounder, and by the end it'll be so nasty and disgusting that you guys won't even be able to think about Mickey D's without throwing up in your mouth a little. (Just for a visual reference, I'm picturing the Lard Ass scene from Stand By Me here.)

You people act like you just can't pick up an NES on ebay and mod it for better video. You can do that or buy a clone or emulate it. I saw no reason for a mini NES with so many other alternatives.  If you have money burning a hole in your wallet, you can buy an Analogue NT mini with full HDMI and play games in 1080p.

Many casual users don't want--if they even know how--to mess with mods, emulators, ROMs, and any of that other ****. That's a big part of the appeal of the NES Classic. It's a really simple, plug-and-play, (theoretically) inexpensive way to play a bunch of games people remember from growing up. And all that without any of the moral/legal issues that come with emulators and ROMs.

And let's also not forget just how goddamn adorable it is. Nostalgia's a helluva drug.


For $449? You could almost buy two NES Classics on eBay for that!

Good news, everyone!

Report: SNES Classic Edition is on the way

I am already in line for this at Best Buy. Send food.

. . .is a thing that is happening. Trailer officially releases this weekend, but it already kind of leaked today. Looks like it will cover all three trilogy eras.

So this Xbox Gamer Pass is basically what Nintendo is doing with the Switch, where you get access to different demos every month? Pretty lame. I'll stick to just buying 2-3 games a year or staying 6 months behind and getting everything for a discount.

They're not demos. They're full games. And as long as you're paying the $10/month to subscribe, you can play them whenever you want.


Call of Duty: Black Ops II is now available through backwards-compatibility. People have been giving Xbox all kinds of "where is this game" **** for months and months, so it's nice to finally have this one out of the way.

Other games added to BC since last time.  Some good stuff in there.

    Star Wars: The Force Unleashed is now free for Gold members through the end of the month. It's backwards-compatible on Xbox One.

    Today's the last day for Gold members to get TFU for free.


    Microsoft Unveils $10 Monthly Gaming Subscription Service For Xbox One

    Coming this spring to the Xbox One, the Xbox Game Pass will give console owners access to over 100 Xbox One and backwards compatible games for $9.99 a month.

    The Xbox Game Pass is not a streaming service, like PlayStation Now, but a game download subscription along the lines of EA Access. Subscribers who pay the $9.99 monthly fee will be able to choose from games like Halo 5: Guardians, Payday 2, NBA 2K16 and SoulCalibur II (examples given in Microsoft’s official announcement,) downloading them directly to their system and playing them as if they were purchased digitally. Subscribers will be able to purchase the games in the catalog at a discount (20 percent off games, 10 percent off add-ons,) adding them permanently to their Xbox library.

    The Xbox Game Pass will start rolling out today to select members of the Xbox Insider program today, with plans to launch exclusively for Xbox Live Gold subscribers before going live for all Xbox One owners this spring.
