the cuteness of this thing is unbeatable.
friends of mine bought one recently and i hear its pretty
nice on a flatscreen. real snes dont upscale well or look
gritty on mine. so i took a crt from the streets and ended
up building me a custom gaming station last summer, whan nes
mini was all the rage. fit a new power cord to it, cause it
was cut off^^ then i built a wooden box for it to fit in to
get rid of that ugly plastic case and put a raspi into the
back. the whole thing is a bit easier to handle than a
wobbly rounded plastic case and i can put it aside or place
things on it since it is box shaped. placed a cinch plug in
the back so i can either hook in my jap or pal snes, or play
emulation from the pi. was a really lovely project and it
got me a bit into nes and sega games. i didnt know the sega
sound was so slick :O i then found me some adlib tracker
hunting after that sound, but that is another thing i
probably wont ever take time to get into... anyways building
some gaming stuff is a real nice project and theres tons of
info on forums if you know jack shit about electricity like
me and dont want to be eletrocuted or set the house on fire
:)

wow! very cool! i was actually thinking of building me
something with a raspberry pie but then the nes classic mini
came along and i thought there must be a snes classic mini
coming afterwards, which was the console of my childhood.
and the possibilities of the hackchi2-hack made me buy it. i
don't have a pc around me right now to hack it, but when i
do this will land on my snes only for the tune

"super castlevania IV", which is already on the console, is
a masterpiece. the art, the music, everything. back then i
didn't have the game myself, so i always had to watch this
neighbourhood kid playing it

and i have a weird relation to crappy games like "incredible
crash dummies", "michael jordan: chaos in the windy city",
"alien 3", "boogerman", "zombies ate my neighbours",
"plok!", a.s.o. which were games that i was having myself or
playing in the mall

that stuff will land on it, too

Absolutely had to get one.

For those that missed out and want one, contrary to the nes,
they will continue producing the snes until 2018.

Great to play Earthbound, and Mario RPG.

these fantasy worlds, but earthbound is fun

When I managed to get an imported super famicom in 1991, I
was the proudest boy in the world.

From then on it was a love story I never quite achieved with
a console again. Super mario world, a link to the past,
super Metroid, super castlevania...

I never had mega man x so that’s great. I had most of the
others. What a great selection.

So you can pirate them? Apparently even Nintendo knows and
is sort of ok with it. Has to do with a message they left.

wut? that tune was a decade ahead ^^

good to hear you can hack it and import emus.
the game/system limitation of the nes classic was one of the
main reasons to avoid it and build the pi station instead.
well that and that i wanted a crt anyways.

russel, i feel the same, the first touch was the sweetest!
had a lot of love for pc games and some n64 games though.
with all the sequels to beloved franchises the 3d versions
hardly ever could live up to the initial impact the 2d games
had.
still glad nintendo puts out new mario games with every
console. the workplace i do part time atm has a switch, so i
played new mariokart. its fun especially since i play it on
a tv as big as my living room back wall ^^ (no kidding they
have a 3m flatscreen in that place) it makes you tilt and
turn your head when you play...

Software emulation. Why would i want this?

I don’t play with friends anymore. Haven’t in a very
long time.

Back in the days I guess it was fighters really, shooters,
and racers. That was about was was available to me back
then. So for the SNES it was f-zero, super mario kart, the
street fighter 2 series, mortal kombat and nba jam, super
parodius, contra 3. I enjoyed playing super Mario land with
a neighbor, oh yeah the contra game

emulation in general:
1. its a handy way to play any game without owning the
console.
2. emulation most of the time looks better on flat screens
3. did i mention its free?

99% prefer the real deal but these benefits are huge

snes mini:
1. its a bundle of games that look neat on modern tvs
2. many people buy it becaue its neat, legal and plug and
play
3. other people enhance these benefits by hacking to
unlimited game access

The SNES mini is so worth it if your from that generation.
Those 21 games would have amounted to a small fortune back
then. Any kid’s dream. I still want to think like that.
I’m not sure 200 more games for free would make me any
happier. I’d be like that spoilt kid who had everything
but was crap at everything because he never stuck at a game,
too focused on what he could next get his greedy little
hands on. Me and my brother had 5 games for a very long time
and we were really happy. A new game was like Christmas, and
often it was. Shit I’m that old cunt.

true, the more games you have the less you get into them.

yes, thats true. im quite good at playing super ghouls n
ghosts, because that was the "new" game back then for a long
time so i really got into it and finished it. nowadays i
don't really have the time for that, i think

oldschool games really need you to memorize a lot,
takes time and patience.
super ghouls n ghost being a rare jump n run example,
due to its difficulty.
still lots of those games are easy to access,
its like the slogan:
easy to pick up, hard to master
and thats just great,
cause often i feel i dont want to play a modern 3d movie,
consisting of endless cutscenes with game passages in there
that bare of any real challenge.
