    I feel like I could still find my way around just based on muscle memory. Norfair is a very easy place to get lost, though! So many passageways, most of which are useless even haha. I still have PTSD from those long vertical bubbly columns in the deeper portions of there that can easily spell a (very long) game over if you get trapped in the lava. I guess it would be possible to bomb blast your way out, but I was never very good at that technique.

    yeah the original metroid is still one of my all-time favorites. sure, super metroid is superior, but the original is still a masterpiece.

    agree on the game boy version though. not sure HOW i beat it back in the day considering it's so monochrome and a bit of a mess...

    the only reason i haven't gotten a tattoo of samus in morph ball form yet is that she just wouldn't look that good in B&W, and all my tattoos are black/grey.

    You could always do the dot matrix style with her?

    i had to send in my WiiU for repair (thankfully, free, instead of the normal $115 charge) because of an error that seems to be running rampant on WiiU consoles (error 160-0103). i'm mostly sad because my friend whom i lent BotW just finished it, but i have to wait another three weeks to be able to play it again.

    Why? Honest question. One is physical supply and one is software. I can't imagine the same people are working on these projects, so why would there be interference?

    Well if Nintendo are seeing people clamor for these physical releases with their old games (and paying over and above) they'll probably see putting the same games on the Switch as reducing the value and want for the classics. That's just my opinion and based on Nintendo's slow (and sparse) release of previous viral console titles. Hope i'm wrong.

    Well.. no Virtual Console announcement, but hey it's something! I wonder if the full original Donkey Kong arcade game with the extra stage will eventually be part of this.

    I wish they'd all be on one cartridge, but definitely sign me up for Mario Bros., Pinball, and Super Mario Bros. - if I remember right, the SMB arcade game actually had some of the "Lost Levels" included. I remember some realllly difficult pits where you had to consecutively jump across strings of koopa troopas. It's been years though.

    Doom and Wolfenstein coming to Switch, Project Octopath Traveler demo out... Arcade Classics series.. Nintendo is seemingly on fire right now!
