I have never finished any of the games in this collection. I dont really like them that much, but I havent played them for a very long time.

Because it is limited, I have preordered the physical version. I will revisit Galaxy first because it is newest and most playable.

I will have to respectfully disagree with this entire point.  I find many old games more playable than modern games.  Super Mario World, Super Metroid, and Link to the Past are games I have literally beat countless times, because it is so playable. 

With Super Mario 3D All Stars, Super Mario 64 is easily one of the most playable and still enjoyable 3D platformers to date.  It is brilliant game...and although not perfect I would say it is more playable than Galaxy and Sunshine.  Heck it may be more playable than Odyssey.

I am not a traditional JRPG player.  I find the games to be quite tedious and the stories are just usually not worth it.  I still stand by the game that the most impressive video game stories can not compare to novels, TV shows, or what not.  So I play games for gameplay not stories.

That said.  I have beaten Chrono Trigger multiple times and it is my favorite traditional JRPG.  It is just such a perfectly designed story and game.  I tried to play other versions of it...but the magic is gone in my willingness to play a turn based RPG game.  What I will say, is I loved the New Game + feature and I would probably go through the story mode again with a new game + save.  That feeling of being all powerful is pretty cool.

This is just a cool invention for even just free driving...let alone being able to play a cool game with it.  But at $99.99 I can really afford it...and I won't really get too much play out of it being an adult.

I am playing Super Mario Bros. 2 when I get home.
 Princess Peach run all the way.

I am really torn about this.  Super Mario 64 is my favorite Mario Game.  I was hoping that this release would give us an HD version of the Nintendo DS version of Mario 64...and perhaps add the sliding of Mario down walls that is now standard but wasn't in Mario 64.  I really just wanted Super Mario 64 with modern Mario controls.  I have played Galaxy thoroughly and it is a great Mario game, but it isn't perfect, and Although Galaxy is better than Sunshine I don't really want it.  Then we get Sunshine, but Sunshine is awesome for those obstacle course levels without the water pack, but there are many, many things I don't like about Sunshine...of course the cool things Sunshine does we haven't seen in other games. 

Hmmm....  And like everyone else said...I never played Galaxy 2, and it is supposed to be one of the best 3D Mario experiences.

This sounds amazing.  I love the concept of this game.

Adrock:  It was, except that he doesn't talk about not caring if they die.  He still believes he is going to change the world by making all the world leaders now have the same struggle as mutants...except that if they aren't real mutants but forced mutants it isn't the same plight. 

I think showing the Magneto understood the risk of death and went with his plan knowing it would most likely fail...showing that cold conviction with words is important.  Just having him say, are you sure you saw what you saw?  or something like that wasn't enough. 

On a separate note, I read the Demon Bear Saga again to prepare for the New Mutants movie...and I fully understand why the movie is getting bad reviews...and why it should have worked...the story is a perfect story for a movie if it was written right.  First, trapping them into the hospital like the hospital and workers is evil takes the set piece of the original story of being trapped in a hospital protecting a fallen comrade away.  The core setup is wrong.  And it is tragic because the hospital works so well in the original comic book story.

I am willing to accept a movie that has aged poorly as still being good.  The original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is still one of the best comic book movies ever made, and X-Men works up until Magneto's silly scheme.  It would have worked as a story, better if Magneto looked at storm and just said, "Well, if mutation does stick, then at least those leaders can hurt us anymore."  Showing himself to equally the problem. 

As for the movie count, I thought there were more too.  But mainline movies there are still only like 7 still almost half of the movies were good.  I guess that is Star Trek and James Bond level consistency.

X2 United, First Class, and the Original and Days of Future Past are the 4 "good movies". With X2 United and First Class being great films.

I think there are only 3 good X-men films (not counting the Wolverine or Deadpool films) which I guess that is almost half of them.  One could make an argument that there are 4 good movies, but if you do then I will counter which there are only 2 great X-men movies.

I agree with Ian.  I don't want to update a new console every 3 years.  I want to know my investment is safe for at least 4 years...I want to know that games will be playable on the console and I don't need to upgrade.  Gaming is expensive and paying a premium for a console and a console game makes me want to ensure it is going to last.  I don't care about graphics eventually being outdated, but I do care if after 2 years of having a console the next Mario game will require another big investment.

Adrock I think the thing is the solution is the same, but because there is actual hardware in the dock you don’t have to worry about heat problems in the main unit. So it allows for a more powerful performance boost while docked. And since it would be around from the very beginning it would hopefully be used more.

Well if it was out of the Box Nintendo could allow the dock to upscale it. Developers would aim for undocked mode and a scaler could turn on additional particle, lighting effects and such.

NickMitch:  That is an interesting idea.  We had talked about those ideas with the Switch Pro but the internals of the Switch were just not capable of that.

If you were do design it from the get go.  Maybe 2 USB 3, One for boosting performance like a graphics card and RAM upgrade and one that is for charging and sending information to the TV.  (Maybe they actually don't need 2)  But it would theoretically work like an external graphics card.  Then Nintendo can allow developers to turn on extra features when docked. 

I like the idea, but I am sure others won't.  To me it makes sense and would even allow for future proofing if needed.

Shorty:  I agree, I have low expectations.  Batman vs. Superman isn't great, but it isn't great for 2 reasons.  1) Tonally it is all wrong.  The music, and colors, everything just didn't work for me.  Next, (And really this argument is a double edged blade) We hadn't had Superman be Superman yet.  So the battle over ideology just can't exist yet.  Maybe if there was a couple of montages comparing Batman's crime fighting and life to Superman's that could have worked. 

This idea of mine being a double edged blade is simple, the argument could be made that IF Superman had been Superman for a long time then Batman would trust him, and so the reactionary story works best...and honestly that is pretty fair. 

The Synder Cut to me, will hopefully show a bigger and bolder image and movie...something that has some vision behind the spectacle, now that vision might be a bad vision, but at least it will be there.

I think Nintendo would be smart to ride out the generation.  They came from a loss with the Wii U and they have a big success.  Because it is viewed as a portable system people aren't looking at graphical parity.  Nintendo needs to ride this train.  Then launch a year or 2 into the PS5 and new Xbox console generation.  Nintendo can safely position itself as the alternative system.

As for what the Switch should be.  When the Wii was released and talk about a Wii 2 was around.  I believed Nintendo should have made a "Super Wii" basically perfect the system and the features and just make the best Wii system they could.  Nintendo didn't do that and I think they suffered for it. 

The Switch 2 needs to be the best damned Switch console they can make...keep the core principle, but make it a better system.  To the regards, I would make a more module Switch.  Right now the controllers have some cool features in them, but many of them are not needed.  Enhance the controllers by making them bigger and better quality and release with the idea of module controllers from off the bat.

Of course 100% backwards compatibility should be had.  From this generation on people should expect that if they buy a game it will move with them to their next console, this should be come place, so that updating your console is like updating your computer.  You will be able to play your games on Steam on your new computer...consoles should be the same.

Well if Batwoman isn't moving forward, you can always you know...move to tell a story about Barbara Gordon as Batgirl and people would be happier.  Batwoman looked awful. 

You know I know it won't happen, but I hope they are able to use almost everything filmed and tell a long form movie making it 4 hours would be great...but honestly, they could easily back door this into a series to finish the Synderverse.  The regular episodes would not have as much as a budget, but if they could get the stars to commit and just tell all of the Synder DC Cinematic run in 1 season of television it might be a reason to subscribe to HBO Max.

Phil & Mop It Up have you made your own Super Mario Games with the Map feature?  I want to find some good content and most is either too hard, or too easy...or just doesn't feel like Mario.

You know if this is successful, and like the Snyder Cut is actually popular and gets good reviews.  I wouldn't mind the Synder-verse continuing separate from the other series.  If not to just get a fully Snyder Justice League Trilogy going.  I mean whether you liked his vision or not the man obviously had a vision which is more than that new Star Wars Trilogy has, and probably more than the DC movies have now.

I played this on apple arcade and I must say much of it was enjoyable but some of the later levels were just annoying. They were gimmicky in a not fun way. The game is a great satire though and several levels were golf spoofs of some great games. It is a game that probably can never have a good sequel but not every game needs one.

A Treky friend of mine Swears that the Animated Star Trek may be the best TOS Trek there is.  It is lean and cuts the stories down to essentials, and I think it is voiced by the original cast.

What Link to the Past gets right is almost everything. But the map is really the perfect size with The right amount of shortcuts. You rarely feel burdened. And those side quested mentioned feels more like just discoveries.

The point is Star Trek has always been an adventure show. So there is always a threat or a mystery and danger. The point isn’t the fighting. The point is the overall world is a hopeful positive future where mankind has surpassed many of the more trivial problems for survival and peace. Now we only have these real specific threats and problems.  But the overall quality of life is pretty stable in the Federation. 

Wait you can download the Japanese SNES and NES apps from the US store?

Thanks for the information.  Yeah, that sounds boring and uninteresting.  I was taking a guess because I didn't know much of the lore around that.  Basically it sounds like Star Trek's version of the Clone can be left with no explanation and be fine as a historical event. 

Well, I think TOS always had guns because of the potential of hostility on planets and they are still an army.  I think Next Generation did a better job since Phasers didn't look like guns (Then again they might in that universe) So when carrying them it didn't seem like they had weapons.  If my memory serves there were many away team parties that never carried weapons with them, and that really fits in with Star Trek.
