as for Horizon Zero Dawn....I'll post some screenshots I took myself (or I'll try to anyways). It really is VERY purty. Took these using the game's photo mode.

so I played several of the SNES Mini games and it works wonderfully. Zelda: A link to the past, Super Castlevania 4, Super Mario Kart, Super Contra 3 and Super Mario World are the ones I tried and they were as much fun as ever. You can save your progress whenever you want to, there are 4 slots for each game and there's also a rewind function that allows you to rewind your game for 30 seconds to undo any silly mistakes., the only trouble is that you have to get up every time and push the reset button on the mini console to do all that. But that's only a minor issue and hardcore gamers won't want to use the rewind function much anyways, if at all.

The SNES Mini controller's cord is supposedly longer than the NES mini controller's cord but it's still too short and you still have to sit relatively close to your TV...UNLESS you buy an extension cord for 10 bucks/Euros. And I'm happy to report that all NES mini controller cord extensions work with the SNES mini as well. I got one and it works just fine.
All in all I'm very pleased with this console. Yes, I wish the console's collection of games weren't limited to 21 games and 99 Euros/bucks is quite a lot of dough for such old games. BUT it's worth it for the HDMI support alone. Mario Kart of course can look quite rough on an HD screen but I don't wanna know what it would look like without HDMI support. And since the console includes real classics (for the most part) there really isn't much one could complain about.

Excellent review. I may consider the extension cords, actually.

Mine is presently available for pick up but down here we also need to pay for an AC adapter separately. Although I bundled that in with my pre-order, apparently the warehouse stocking them were delayed so I'm waiting til Monday to collect. Might as well look at the cords if they have them.

As for the rewind function, that sounds almost tempting for the games I have not played but I imagine it would be more for the uninitiated to games in general. I'll likely skip it.

Edit, found a pack of the extension cords and nabbed it. Still waiting for the console, etc.

you'll be very pleased with it. I tried the rewind function when I played Castlevania (mostly because my reflexes aren't what they used to be *ahem*) and it works like a charm. It's a pretty cool feature actually. I know which game I will definitely need it for (fuck you, Contra III).

Finally picked it up today and opened the box with a grin.

I started with Super Metroid (of course). I told myself I'd only play for an hour as I didn't want to overdo it.
So, nearly 3 hours later and about a third of the way through the game...
It is addicting and I am nearly 20 years out of practice. The controller was easy enough to get used to but those somersault wall-jumps, goddamn I forgot how hard they were to get right.
I also spent a lot of the time going in circles because either I forgot where I was meant to go, or I'd remember but get stuck for whatever reason. Even with a full map it's easy to get disorientated, especially in Norfair.

Will have to continue tomorrow, hopefully without playing into the small hours.

likewise. Super Metroid still kicks all sorts of ass. But boy did I forget about EVERYTHING in that game. Which would be OK if I hadn't played the same 5 years ago, hehe. Oh well. Guess I must be getting old. But iit's still a lot of fun. Those wall jumps though...

A big "fuck off" of course to SF2 Turbo.
I remembered liking it least but forgot how ugly, garish and unappealing compared to the other SF2 games it was.
Regardless of adjustable speed, the AI seems more imbalanced than the others in this title, as well. Damn you Nintendo for not giving us outside Japan New Challengers!
