I would want a more all-encompassing Koei collection than James.  I thought there was one series but there are several, the Rekoeition Series, the Historical Series, the World War Series.  I loved Aerobiz as a kid btw, nothing like buying the museum and the grand hotel in Rome and moving flights from the East through it to maximize profits.

I wonder if it's been long enough for them to finally release Advance Wars. It could be something easy to slot into late winter.

I hope so.

I fully agree with James about Origami King.  I delayed getting the game since I wanted a true RPG, don’t like the overuse of Toad, and the battle system looked meh.  I bought it when it was on sale and ended up loving the game.  The story and dialogue are what sucked me in, it’s one of the few games in the last 5 years that I made time to play.  The playhouse sequence is one of my favorite video game moments, and the death of one of the characters affected me more than almost any other.  Great game that should not be missed, but I still want a true RPG, still don’t like the overuse of Toad, and the battle system was indeed meh.  I guess that makes me a 100 Year Truther.  Maybe 10 year.

Well in Japan it would be 22/5/5 so not quite accurate.  The last day that was the same everywhere was December 12th, 2012.  Coincidentally the last day Sega could launch a console.

Might not be too bad if Microsoft is more concerned with software than hardware.  I could see them building a massive developer base and then exiting the hardware side.  They could then put Game Pass on Nintendo and Sony hardware, PC, phones, whatever else.  Maybe sell a Roku or Firestick type device for those who want to stream Game Pass only.  Either that or I would think Activision will continue being Activision and Microsoft will collect the profits.  They don't make money with hardware and don't have much of a first-party library, so I can't see limiting Activision to Xbox being worthwhile even if it pushes Xbox sales.  I don't know what the last game I bought made by them is so doesn't much affect me anyway.

SP N64 idea, Mario Kart 64 with everything unlocked and a 200cc mode added.  100cc could be replaced with it or every class in the SP version could default to 200cc.

Great episode.  As a kid who loved Metroid I was very happy with Metroid II since I could play Metroid on the go or when the one TV was being used.  That being said, I bought it on 3DS VC and found I liked it a whole lot more as a kid.  I know the huge sprites are grating today, but I liked them since the other option was indistinct tiny sprites like Super Mario Land.  Also, the GB lasted over 10 hours, usually more like 20, on 4 AA batteries.  It was one of the main selling points against the Game Gear which only got 2-3 hours on 6 AAs.

My recommendation for the RetroActive is Ghost Recon:Shadow Wars.  It was an oddly great 3DS launch title, and a genre I don't recall hearing about much outside of Fire Emblem from the podcast.

2x2x5x7 = 140.  I think the reason there is annoyance at Nintendo seemingly slacking off right now when they often do this is that, coronavirus aside (and I know that's a massive aside but one often poorly understood even when considered), there's no excuse with the bank they are making and reduction from 2 to 1 systems.  When they slacked off at the end of the N64, GCN, or Wii U it was obvious why, low resources and stocking up to blow out the start of the next round.  When they do it with the Wii/DS/Switch it reeks of laziness and getting high on their own "they'll buy our system with nothing new" supply.  Though, I suppose snorting copious amounts of powdered ¥10,000 notes will do that to someone.

I'm vaguely familiar with the concept. But Nintendo is inconsistent about it. And they don't usually convert in English language release.
You're right, they used myriads in previous reports.  This both reinforces my surprise that you were unfamiliar with the concept and my concern that I missed it reading previous financial reports.  I must of just naturally converted it, its not like dealing with crore after all.

Kind of surprised that James didn't know that East Asian countries use myriads or 10,000 to group numbers, which is why sales are reported as 46 10,000's not 460 1,000's.  I thought they converted to 1,000's in the English report though.

This was by far the best part of the direct for... $99.99... well, Mario All-Stars for free is cool.

  • Don't care

Instead of this Game & Watch why not make a Game Boy Classic?  This has an LCD screen and can play Super Mario Bros so surely similar tech could handle Game Boy games.  This is just a novelty, a Game Boy Classic is an obvious product with some real practical functionality that compliments the NES and SNES Classic and could fill demand for more Classic systems, particularly since there isn't going to be an N64 Classic.
When they first showed it I thought it might be a Game Boy Mini or whatever, and hoped it was.

Bah, Spirit Tracks it is.  It's one of my least favorite Zelda games but I do recall the dungeons being among my favorites so maybe, terrible touch controls aside, a play through wouldn't be so bad.

It's bigger news when they finally stop if you ask me.


Actually, a good bet would be whether they continue to release the Wii version after the Wii U one is killed off..

They actually did it. Those madmen! So, now if someone asks what were the last 5 games released for the Wii, the answer has been updated to Just Dance 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019. And who says the Wii U is dead? They're still games coming out for it. Stay back Switch, you vulture!

According to Wikipedia since 2015 there have been two Let's Sing (one was last Autumn), The Voice, a Barbie  puppy rescue game, Skylanders, and Rodea.  And of course, three Let's Dance games.

I was more negative than I should have been.  I brought up PTO 2 here before and someone mentioned Gemfire, I need to look into that.

We'll see how things go but I have to wonder with 20 games there are 15 1st party, 1 main brand collaboration, and the best selling game of all time how long will the 3rd party lovefest last?  It's been a year, the install base is decent as are 3rd party offerings.

I wish DQ Builders was higher, good game people!
I loved the demo, I like the idea of Minecraft but would like some reason to do stuff which DQ Builders provides so I will be picking it up.

Even though most third party games are not appearing in the top 10, my understanding is that the majority of third party games are selling well enough that they are profitable and making the publishers happy. When they put the effort in, fans will reward them (the only Switch purchase I regret is WWE 2K18, it's a terrible port of a game already riddled with bugs).

I hope so, but going forward it will become ever more difficult and expensive to port games to the Switch so the outside of the top 10 sales might not be enough.

I would like a simpler grand strategy game on a console (I was a big Koei fan in the SNES days) but I thought the Panzer General formula was bad in the 90's and now it's just old and bad regardless of what you wrap around it.

Sweet.  Now I need to finish the first one on PC.

Okay, but why though?

I guess it’s nice 3DS is getting some love. At the same time, I feel like people would probably rather have an HD version on Switch.
70 million sold?  Bigger in a different demographic?

Glad to see they're letting this series die with the decrepit 3DS.
Well anything involving touch controls pretty much has to.

Were the Dragon Quest VIII Connectivity's the genesis of this idea?  Was that ever finished?  I think there were 2 episodes, I liked them.

Hey, speaking of Cube Fight...
