Managed to secure a pre-order for Super Mario 3D All-Stars on the Switch. I can't believe the game will only stick around for six months....

Yeah, I got my pre-order in as well & am pretty excited!

I've only played 64 in bits in pieces via rentals back in the day, and a lot of the time I had no idea what I was supposed to be doing (due to being new to exploratory 3D games, and the fact that I was placed at different random points in the game when I rented it based on where the last person left off), so I'm glad to get another crack at it.

I've never played Sunshine as my family ended up getting a PS2, although seeing it at store demo kiosks as a kid was magical. So it'll be new to me.

I have played through Galaxy, which was my first proper Wii game (not counting Wii Sports) and a magical experience, but it's been over a decade since I've last played it, so I'm eager to jump back in!

Playing Devil May Cry 2 HD to hold me over until 3D All Stars releases. I know it's considered the bad one, but other than being mostly really easy it hasn't been a terrible experience or anything, IMO. A lot more boss variety than the first game, even though most of them are simple (I did like the giant boss that emerged from the skyscraper. It still wasn't hard, but it had a pretty varied attack pattern compared to the other bosses I've fought thus far).

Also really excited for Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity. Between that & 3D All Stars I should be good on the Switch front for the rest of the year.

I love how people were saying "Super Mario 3D All Stars will be available for six months, that's plenty of time to buy a copy". I don't think those same people have heard of scarcity of stock and I just encountered my first example of this where an online retailer has literally written next to the title of the game that if you pre-order a copy now you won't get it until the second week in November. I'm not going to wait two months just to get a copy and at this point I'd rather just not support Nintendo at all since it's just poor business practice. Not to mention that it's starting to sink in for me that this collection is just pure laziness. Super Mario 64 doesn't hold up well at all in terms of mechanics and controls and would've benefited a lot from a remake. Sunshine and Galaxy on the other hand still feel great to play till this day, but 64 genuinely doesn't and I'm disappointed that Nintendo didn't do more than just make an HD port.

As much as I wouldn't mind a physical copy of 3D All Stars I am just not in the mood to deal with scalpers, having my preorder cancelled or any other crap that companies must think it's funny which is the only explanation for making limited copies. I will just buy it digitally.

I managed to pre-order a copy, but the limited availability is just really stupid. They know very well it is a game people will want to buy at any point.

I got SM3DAS and have been playing SM64 over the weekend!

It's definitely rough around the edges & showing it's age, but there's just something satisfying about finally nabbing that Star that's eluded you 10 or 20 times, even if many of your failures are partially due to the game's archaic nature.

I know I got far enough to beat the first Bowser fight as a kid, but I honestly didn't remember Jolly Roger Bay at all (I probably thought it was too gloomy or scary as a kid, especially that first mission that apparently takes place at night, and never bothered with it). Anyhow, I've got all the Stars in Bob-Omb Battlefield & Whomp's Fortress, all Stars except the one for 100 Coins in Cool Cool Mountain, the first 2 in Jolly Roger Bay, and a couple secret Stars as well. I think I have 24 now and haven't yet played the first Bowser level.

@RR529 The only thing I know is that people who are playing through these games for the first time are finding 64 to be an awful and frustrating experience due to how annoying the game's controls and mechanics are. I just don't understand why Nintendo didn't take the time to remake the game and update the controls so that they feel more responsive. It really doesn't fit in with the rest of the collection, I'd honestly rather have Galaxy 2 than 64.

Would love to hear your opinion of the game once you've progressed further into it. I vividly remember destroying a GameCube controller playing the game on Wii because of the 100 coin star in Rainbow Ride. If I ever get this collection, I'm definitely buying it primarily for Sunshine and Galaxy with 64 being a bonus.

@LtSarge I'm loving 64 to be honest! About 50something stars in and I'm going for the full 120! Brilliant game especially in HD, but I would obviously prefer it if it was wide-screen and had all the gubbins it'd have on an unofficial emulator!

Microsoft's first course of action as owner of Bethesda and its franchises will obviously be to port Starfield to Nintendo Switch.

First time playing 64. I grew up on banjo. Anyways I'm about to give up on 64 not because of the 4:3 or the controls but the terrible camera.
