My Super Gameboy had a common audio problem where the game sound would only play at an absurdly low volume, so I tried replacing the caps, yet it's still persisting. Maybe the one I bought is bad...and maybe I just impulse-bought the Japan-only SGB2. :I


So I'm looking to get some Gameboy/SNES games to go with my shiny new Super NT. I have a Super Gameboy on the way, so don't need to worry about that. Here are the ones I'm thinking about: Pokemon TCG, Kirby's Dream Land 2 and 3, Goof Troop.


My Super NT was delivered...yesterday! But finally was free to pick it up today. Plays great! Absolutely no lag (as far as I can tell), games look beautiful on one gripe is that carts fit tight, especially Super Famicom carts. Vid related.


I really want a Switch version of Punch-Out!!


I'm not sure who here likes Brawl, but if you want to watch a tournament for a ten year old video game check the link in the comment below!


Hey so I got quoted in TWO stories about a crowdfunded Nintendo Switch dock. Links in comment cause I ain't got this qpost thing figured out after all this time.


While from a lore and even game design standpoint I find hard to get Pokemon fun and interesting, as a player hunting down a bear that only has a 5% chance of appearing in the morning and a 50% chance of running away is infuriating.


Something I never really understood is the large number of fightsticks and gamepads that have turbo built in. As far as I know any competition worth it's salt bans turbo. So how do players work around it? Do they just have to have one without a turbo key?


A friend got Pikmin 3 for free from Club Nintendo when they were running some promotion with MK8. He gifted the code to me on the condition I played it, as he already owned and loved the game. Several years later I'm finally playing it.


One reason I prefer briefs over boxers is cause they help prevent the boys getting stuck to my legs.


Honestly I would buy labo if the price wasn't so it is I really don't want to spend 70 on cardboard. I know the software is part of the price, I just feel like they could drive more sales at a lower price point.


This is why people dislike random tripping in Brawl (vid in link):


I managed to sneak in some FighterZ before leaving AGDQ last night, and I think I finally got to grips with the controls. This was my first time playing this style of fighter but I dug it. It's definitely beginner friendly, which is great for this series.


If you're at AGDQ feel free to say hi to me! Currently watching the Ultima run.


No one here is talking about it, but watching TMR crush the turbo tunnel blindfolded was aweinspiring. I was in the audience for his attempt 2 years ago, and I was there today as well. Great stuff.


All packed up and ready to go to AGDQ. Just passing the time till it's time to leave. I've been looking forward to this since the last time I went, which was two years ago now.


This video (or at least this reupload from NicoNico) will turn a decade old soon. This has got me all kinds of messed up right now.


Goty? Mine are probably BotW at number 1, Odyssey at 2, and then Sonic Mania on 3. Anything beyond that is impossible for me to rank.


Man I really don't know what I think of The Last Jedi. I don't think the good outweighs the bad though. Film really seemed to drag on forever.


I've only opened a couple things so far, but I got Mario + Rabbids (I held off cause I had a hunch I'd be getting this), an Amazon gift card, and then THIS beautiful thing....that you'll have to check the comments to see cause pics broke on my qposts!


So the BrawlBRSTMS3X channel is gonna be shut down soon. If you like your extended video game rips, they'll probably be uploading them on a new channel (SmashDSPs) but apparently with a focus on Nintendo music since that's least likely to get them struck.


Dug a little deeper into Brawlout today. Jeez does everyone who play online have a shit connection? This is taking me back to the Brawl days. Also, I'm confused by how strong some moves are but I think it's to compensate for how good recoveries are.


I think I'm starting to "get" Brawlout. I'm playing in training mode right now and getting a feel for what's similar and what's different from other platform fighters. It's interesting, but they need to squash those bugs and tighten things up IMO.
