The SNES games prompted me to finally grab the free year of the online service from Twitch Prime. They could so easily have drip fed a load of crock like they largely did with the NES games, but they've launched with a good portion of the best 16-bit games ever made. Mario World, Yoshi's Island, Super Metroid, A Link to the Past, F-Zero, Mario Kart, Starfox... all gold. We're only really missing some solid JRPGs, though that may be met by Breath of Fire, which I've never played (it was never released on the SNES in Europe, only the GBA later). I mostly just want Final Fantasies 5 and 6, though I suspect we won't get them as part of the virtual console but rather their own releases.

So I had an issue whereby I couldn't download the SNES software from the on-console e-shop; there was a message on the page stating it couldn't be used when on a free trial. I got around it by downloading it to the console via the web shop. I'm not sure whether this is intentional behaviour or not. And because actually finding a download page on the web shop is a pain in the arse, here is the link:

Why it's the new Nintendo Chastity Belt™ of course.

That better be a unlockable weapon for whatever future DLC is coming out for Hitman 2.
