lol, you must really love all these low print editions.  Makes being a physical collector far more expensive than it really needs to be!

How do the Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy games play?

I have the digital Wheel of Fortune and have played it with my wife.  It's fine for what it is, and I got it deeply discounted.  But, it is disappointing that they didn't bother trying to license the likenesses of Pat Sajak and Vanna White.  Presentation-wise it makes it feel generic and cheap compared to the effort put into the Sega CD version over 2 decades ago.

Updated to April 1.  I think the reason people burn out doing this table is all the shovelware.  So. Many. Crappy. Games.  Mostly thanks to TalonMan, who showed up after several months and added 138 (!!) new games to his count, there were 83 new entries to the games list.  We're up to a total of 787 different titles, though there is some overlap (i.e.: The Banner Saga Trilogy is counted separately from the individual entries).  Congrats to colint0101 who became the eighth member of the century club.

Biggest new game was Final Fantasy VII (6 points), which helped Square Enix become the biggest mover among publishers at +14.  Shantae and the Pirate's Curse was second at 4 points.  It would have been 5, but we Canadians always get screwed by American companies, so I'm still waiting my physical copy.

You rock dread pirates! Sorry for the giant pm but I didn't wanna spam out the whole forum and thought that if someone quoted me and didn't snip the quote it would be terrible looking.

Awesome to see final fantasy 7 getting those Sales though, I'm just going through the cave behind midgar zolem but had a game crash, pretty annoying having to redo a bit of stealing!!



Fancy hearing me on an amateur podcast with friends gushing over one of my favourite games? https://youtu.be/1I7JfMMxhf8

Now, now - there isn't THAT much shovelware in my collection!! A great deal of my focus (as you pointed out) is on these limited print publishers because, as I mentioned, I'd rather make these purchases now instead of getting scalped on eBay later. BUT, these publishers do not just grab crap titles and throw them on a cartridge - they're pretty selective with the digital games they get the rights to. Obviously, not every game they push out is a '10' - but they also aren't bottom of the barrel garbage titles, either...

Yes, I also have the occasional doo-doo title mixed in (because it happened to be on sale some place for a quarter or something) - but that definitely does not make up the majority...    ...the bigger issue is that it had been since last July or so, since I last provided an update - that's nearly a YEAR of collecting!!! I will do my best to at least come in here once a month, and hopefully keep my counts more reasonable.

Haha, TalonMan and Ganoncrotch - your additions weren't actually all that difficult to input. Though the numbers did make them a bit time consuming. C'est la vie! It certainly caused a lot of movement on the charts!



Final fantasy 7 and hob definitive edition

My collection is still feeling the impact of selling a game though!! but tbh anyone who ever considers picking up that WWE game on the Switch, know that you need to download almost 20GB to go with the cartridge and the game is borderline unplayable with just 2 players in the ring, anything over that is just a waste of time, would probably take less time to set up and get out a copy of the Xbox360 version of the older games rather than waste time watching the Switch running that thing at 10fps or so.

Will be cool to pick up another few games though and be the first member with 200 titles! (considering that Talon skipped the 200's and went right to 300+ lol)

Yeah, I was so hyped for that when it was first announced, and then steered clear when the reviews came in.  I was also extremely disappointed with 2K for not making any attempt to patch the game into playable condition, or release a follow-up game that eliminated those issues.  It bothers me that they frequently put the game on sale in the eshop to sucker new Switch owners who might not have heard how broken the game is and think they are getting a deal just because the game is over a year old.  Both of their NBA games on the Switch are spectacular, and that has 10 players running up and down the court simultaneously.  There is no reason why it should be so difficult to get more than 2 wrestlers moving in a wrestling ring at a decent framerate.  If Blind Squirrel is so incompetent that they can't even get a single wrestler's entrance walk to not animate in slow motion, then hire the game out to someone else who can.  Don't just throw in the towel on future iterations, while continuing to accept money for the broken piece of crap you already shat out.  Don't mind me.  I'm venting, because I was really looking forward to having a wrestling game on Switch.  A buddy of mine also works with me, and I had been telling him how great it would be to create wrestlers on our lunch break at work and then get together and play the matches on Friday nights on the big screen.  Such a waste of potential...
