    ah shit, just looked and now i noticed i already had triforce heros. thats the problem with collecting so many games, you lose track of what you have and can accidentally buy doubles. Yeah i got spirit tracks too, it is hard to come by now days.

    link between worlds was great.

    so was breath of the wild on switch, botw was one of my most favorites so far. that newer switch one with the egg island thing was the most recent zelda ive played through.

    An old AMD GPU with the CRT-emu drivers, out to a cheap hdmi to YPbPr converter ($15 off eBay) gets you amazing quality 240p out of an old TV with component connections.

    A bit of effort just for one game I admit, but it's a great option for emulators too.

    actually the invoice is in the box, my Metroid was $24! wow that was a bargain, and from JB no less.

    what do we all think of Metroid Prime Hunters? I haven't played it yet but the box sure is shiny.

    Makes me cry. I would literally pay the full price of a brand new game to play it on the Switch. Let's be honest, I'd probably pay double. This isn't even funny.

    Yep - benefits of the 3DS port. Going back to play the original, while awesome, won't be as good as my memory and nostalgia dictates. I simply would love for them to remaster all of the oldies for Switch - Wind Waker, Twilight Princess etc. I know Sony ramped that up recently, just wished Nintendo followed suit. I daresay the remaster of Ocarina Of Time would bring them in a fuck-tonne of money. I mean, how hard can it be? I've also seen petitions on change.org for this. Lol!

    Rumour has it there's a Mario collection coming out. They desperately need to do the same for Zelda and Metroid too.

    WiiU has the HD remakes of these, no waggles either.

    Still incredibly expensive to get both the console and the games. The low sales rate ensured that second hand prices are quite high.

    One of the reasons I'm happy to pirate/emulate, 2nd Gamecube stuff is so expensive, especially PAL stuff.

    GameCube runs nicely on Wii, and you can pick them up for as little as $35. Throw "Nintendont" on you Wii, and you've got the ultimate GameCube platform.

    You need a "New 3DS". The standard model isn't fast enough for PS1 emulation.

    With that hardware, recent builds of PCSX ReARMed appear to be quite well optimised for the hardware.

    Nintendont runs on WiiU, and has some special extra config items specifically for that hardware.
