Nintendo SNES Classic sells out; Wii Shop ending in January 2019

  • A mini NES Classic Edition console

Addressing supply complaints, Nintendo of America chief executive Reggie Fils-Aime told the Financial Times that the company increased production of the SNES Classic and encouraged people not to buy from scalpers or pay more than the retail $80.

The European version looks like the EU SNES released in the 90s, while the USA and Japanese versions also ape their regional variants.

Hope you're all enjoying your SNES Classics, that I'm not-at-all jealous and bitter of. When attempting to use the NES Classic kernel with the SNES Classic, they report that "nothing happens - the power light just blinks, then reverts back to the SNES kernel with no issues".

United States pummel Internationals in march toward Presidents Cup
A par by the Amercians was good enough to win the 14th, and a final 8-foot birdie putt by Reed on the 15th closed out the match. As the worldwide stars remained largely irrelevant, the US enjoyed a boost on what is normally moving day at the biennial match.

However, Nintendo still hasn't fixed one of the biggest complaints from the NES Classic Edition: the controllers' wires are incredibly short. As with the NES Classic, Nintendo lets you "suspend" games in progress, so you don't have to wait to get to a save point in a game.

When the original Super NES console was introduced in the United States in 1991, it was beloved by a generation of fans because it introduced games with narrative adventures that demanded a new level of engagement compared with previous systems, whose games merely replicated the endless levels and high scores of arcade games. The launch inventory of the SNES Classic has sold out in the first 24 hours.

Re-reviewing all 21 games wouldn't be prudent, but there are some general software highlights to point out. You can find it right HERE. "If you wanted a system and were willing to get to a store kind of early, you likely got one".

Pixel 2 XL Features Stereo Speakers, Music Recognition and Portrait Mode
There are bound to be plenty of other features announced at the event, but those are some of the biggest things we know as of now. This is said to be available straight from the Google Camera app that's on the Pixel 2 smartphones .

So which games would you have loved to see as a part of this collection?

First off, Star Fox 2 has a website with a few pages instead, but all other manuals are reproduced nicely as digital PDFs. Super Mario RPG's manual also interests me as it spoils Bowser's role in the game, but not Princess Peach's. On an SNES Classic Controller, the Y button can double as B, and X can double as A. The same setup applies if you're playing with a Wii Classic Controller or Classic Controller Pro hooked up to your NES Classic. The Super NES Classic has no internet connection, so there is no way to compete online with friends.

Ryanair's latest flight cancellations could hit 400000 customers
Ryanair is planning to ground 25 of its aircraft from November 2017 to March 2018 which will result in 30 routes being suspended. It is one of 34 flights which will be grounded from November until March after the company said it would "slow its growth".
