[up][up]I mean the time between characters circa 2019 was often less than two months from July to January so getting another fighter reveal this quick is not that out of the question. Even Steve to Sephiroth in terms of reveal videos was just over two months itself.

We technically got Sephiroth exactly two months ago from tomorrow if you did the Sephiroth Challenge.

Funnily enough I just took part in a You Tube community poll asking if we think that there will be a direct soon and i said that there won’t be one.

[up]Given that we'll get the reveal tomorrow and a Sakurai presents/fighter release some time in the week after timeline wise it'll be similar to what we've seen.

I figured the year would be spread out as character 9 in late Winter, 10 around E3, 11 in the Fall. Nothing says they have to end in December.

I’m thinking every two months is our timeframe. So I’m guessing that the last fighter will be known by June.

I'd say that something like a character announcement trailer and upcoming Sakurai Presents wouldn't be out of the question. Mainly I don't think they'd tag it with SSBU unless they were announcing something related, and I'm not sure what else they'd have to announce for it other than another character. Which means it's time for wild theorizing, I guess.

Why would Sakurai want to kill the hype so early? The Direct itself could have pointed that out. sad

Mine are set reasonably. I just feel that Sakurai's timing for that tweet wasn't the best.

I don't see how Sakurai's tweet really killed any hype; at this point it's pretty much assumed that Covid threw the planned release schedule out of whack.

As soon as I saw the Zelda guy (forgot his name ATM), I was like "Oh he's gonna give no new info on BOTW 2" and then I was right. When I didn't want to be.

Technically Aonuma did give news on the game- that we'd get actual news this year.

All things considered that's more BotW 2 news than I was expecting to get this year.

And to Aonuma's credit, BOTW's sequel being finally showcased in some capacity is more assuring than the still-total shroud for Prime 4 and Bayo 3. If things go well and E3 happens this year, that might be the best moment to show a full-fledged trailer for the game.

So considering the NES and SNES Online collections have now over 110 games total, what would you say are the WORST games featuring in each collection?

My picks:

NES - Star Soldier: It feels like one of the better space shooters from Action 52. That is not a compliment.

SNES - The Peacekeepers: Holy shit this game is tears-inducing with how boring it is

[up]Rushing Beat Shura, the Japanese version of The Peace Keepers, is much better. Jaleco's Japanese division gave virtually zero assistance to their western division back then, so a lot of the music, characters, and even entire stages were cut during the localization process. Give that a try if you ever get the chance.

I haven't played too many games in the online library to choose a "worst", I have gone towards the ones I know are good (the Super Mario and Zelda games, Panel de Pon, Donkey Kong Country, etc.)

Maybe my least favorite would be Super Mario Kart, merely because it hasn't aged very well, and all following MK games have surpassed in in many ways.

I rarely play the NES and SNES games. Most of the ones I'm interested in playing in HD I'd likely play via either the NES/SNES Classic or the Wii U.

Yeah I’m not sure what the worst SNES online game is, I only play through the stuff I like.

I haven't really played much of SNES online, because everything that interests me I've already played on the Wii/Wii U/SNES Mini/GBA.

But I'm kind of curious if many younger Switch owners have gotten into older SNES games.

Because back in the N64/GC/Early Wii era the way I consumed games was a bit different. I'd fully play and replay almost all of the games I owned since I was more limited in the games I had. Now I can just buy anything that seems appealing, but that means I actually have a sizable to play list.

So I was wondering if many younger kids might try them out once they finish the games they already have. But I guess given the decent amount of FTP games on the Switch that might be pretty rare.

Most kids are honestly playing games like Fortnite, Minecraft, Fall Guys, and Among Us. So they're probably not really going back to play older retro games. A far cry from the Wii era where a lot of kids then were getting into older NES, SNES, Genesis, N64, etc. games via the Virtual Console. It's probably much rarer these days to find a kid discovering retro games rather than playing what their friends are playing. What is also something to take into consideration is that while gaming is much more mainstream now than it was back when the Wii launched, retro gaming is still very much niche.

Well for kids nowadays retro gaming is more along the lines of PS2, consoles like the SNES are almost fossils.

To be honest I don't even think kids today (I'm talking people who currently are in elementary school-middle school. Right around the age range I was when the Wii was current) are even going back and discovering older PS 2 games. I'm also more talking about that I think kids today are unlikely to be playing old NES/SNES games on something like Switch Online.

Since we're on this topic: Would you guys consider it be more worth it to either go for a next generation console, or go back a generation? When I say "worth it", I mean worth the money, more useful, or preferring having a ton of games to choose from versus not having a lot to choose from right now?

Honestly I'd pick going back a generation as those consoles can be gotten for cheap (like I can buy a PS3 for less than $100) and already have a lot of great games to choose from. You also with the 7th generation consoles don't have to contend with predatory practices like lootboxes or microtransactions.
