If they actually fixed the frame rate in Stunt Race FX it would be a decent game but... it probably runs the same.

I've been in the mood for a Metroid game lately, so this seems like a good excuse to replay Super Metroid. This will also be the first time I get a chance to play Star Fox and the SNES version of Yoshi's Island since I never owned a Super Nintendo and had no interest in the SNES Mini.

This is a decent starting line up

Wow, this was probably the biggest announcement for me.  I was expecting like 5 SNES games at first and a price increase to access them.  So to have 20 right out the gate at no extra charge is great.  Plus it's nice to see games like Joe & Mac 2 and Stunt Race FX on there since they weren't released on the Wii or Wii U Virtual Console.  Gives me hope we'll see a lot of more niche and obscure titles, similar to Vice: Project Doom on the NES service.

Can't wait to see how this service will look a few years from now.

I'm about ready to sign up for Nintendo Online especially since I want these SNES controllers. Why do I still let SNES nostalgia play on me? First the SNES mini, then the SNES 3DS edition and now the SNES Switch controllers and new online features.

I’m going to need you to buy more SNES things.

All of them.

Rather pleased with the lineup. Especially because there were a few on there I never got around to owning, and were part of a group of games I never bought but rented repeatedly from Blockbuster.

Yeah, there are already nine things in here I never played before, so that's off to a good start. One such is Demon's Crest which seems to be generally highly-regarded, looking forward to checking it out.
