    I should have my copy of Super Mario 3D All Stars tomorrow!

    I have to admit, I'm pretty excited to play Super Mario Galaxy again (for the 1,000th time! )

    I cannot believe that this game is the second best-selling game of 2020... and it was just announced a couple of weeks ago!!

    I'd been holding off because I have so many retro games to play that I'll die of old age before I complete them. But if she wants a switch...who am I to argue?

    So far none are available but hoping to see more in stores soon.
    I've seen the standard version sitting on the shelf at local Walmarts here and there recently. I haven't seen a Lite since the pandemic.

    Ok that's interesting. I've only been looking at Walmart.com and they show no stock. Maybe I need to go visit a few.

    Oh no man I had a guy mod my NES mini and it now has over 16,000 games on it. I have 36 different consoles like the NES, SNES Genesis, Playstation 1, Neo Geo, and every arcade game up through about 1997.

    Ah... LOL, I thought you're going to take the advantage of the membership perk from Switch Subscriptions.

    So I've been playing a bunch of Super Mario 3D All Stars and, overall, I like the package.

    For me, Super Mario 64 is the best game in this set. It has a crisp, up-scaled resolution that runs at a constant 30 fps. The difference between this version and the original is night and day.

    Super Mario Sunshine is probably the worst game in the collection. (And not just because I've never really liked this game.) Yes, it runs in 1080p and looks fantastic, but it has no GameCube controller support (??) and the camera controls aren't reversible!?!

    Now, one of my all time favorite games (not just SMB games) is Super Mario Galaxy. I was really looking forward to this conversion, and in some respects it is absolutely beautiful. It runs at a solid 60 fps in 1080p! BUT, Galaxy has always been a game about immersion and control, and sadly, neither the Joy-Cons nor Pro Controller can emulate that special feeling of the WiiMote and Nunchuck... it just feels very awkward and keeps you from being absorbed into the experience.

    I will, of course, play all of these to completion, but my pick for best game in the collection goes to Mario 64 (even with the wonky aged camera mechanics...)
