18 killer NES games for $10 B)

This one's been on my radar for a while, now.

I don’t care much for Renegade or the original NES Double Dragon, and I have bought the rest of the Technōs US games a million times, but looking at all of those exclusive new translations I gotta get that. Kunio Kun hockey??? I’m sold.

They're not?

Nope. They were $40, now they're back up to $60.

 I'm just using my Classic Controller Pro; it's not quite the same thing, but it's good enough B)

Exactly! Half of these games never even got a fan translation.

They also added some optimizations to almost all of the games, but most of them it's just "less lag/flickering", which might just be an emulation option, but it's hard to say without digging in.

The online multiplayer should be nice to play with my friends during this pandemic.

 

...and I didn't think I would really care, but there's a "B + A" button, and I've been using it a lot.

That's it. Gonna wishlist it and bank on it going on sale again.

You mentioning that convinced me to go buy it. 🙂

 

Now... Anyone know how to pass on this thing?  I press the pass button and it just flips the puck up in the air.

It's still on sale until the 13th.

...in the USA, at least. Dunno what country you're in.

I'm trying to space out my purchases to get some of the games played. 😬

I think you have to be moving. It's not a great hockey game and it's not quite as good a hockey-themed beat-em-up as Mutant League but it's a lot of fun. Pretty happy with that deal!
