    So there's an interview, where they said they're abandoning the VC. I guess we'll only get a limited amount of NES games with online functionality, but it looks like they're abandoning SNES and N64, which really sucks. And I don't even understand why? All they have to do is make an emulator, and then they just dump the ROMs that they already have, and they make money. It makes no sense why VC is now abandoned, all for some NES online functionality. Lame.

    Hopefully they change their minds.

    I think with the success of the mini systems, the VC as we knew was dead anyway. Getting third parties back on was going to be difficult.

    I heard that the plans were that the SNES and N64 were just coming later.

    I'm leaning towards buying Sushi Strikers. I'm just not sure if I want to pay a $50 price tag for something that feels like a $20 eshop title. It does look fun though.

    Well, this is a surprise announcement.



    I honestly thought 4 would be announced this year.

    Not quite sure about the Cloud strategy, though. It sounds like it is essentially a rental, $20 for 6 months. We will see if this comes to the US. Some clear potential here, though.

    Yup, another amazing game.

    I will say, one of the best surprises on the Switch is Mario X Rabbids. Surprisingly good.

    Yeah definitely spending some time on that Tennis Demo. I know I'm getting it anyway since I always liked those games, but playing it early is A-OK with me.
