If you're a Nintendo Online subscriber, you'll gain access to two more NES titles later this month: Donkey Kong 3 and Wrecking Crew come to the Nintendo Switch on July 17th, along with the ability to rewind your NES games.
 
Donkey Kong 3 is best remembered as the Donkey Kong sequel that didn't include Mario, or traditional Donkey Kong gameplay.  It's more of a shooter than anything else -- you control Stanley, shooting clouds of pesticide at the killer bugs Donkey Kong is sending down your way.  Spray DK's simian behind until he falls from... the roof of your greenhouse.  Truly, the Donkey Kong game everyone was waiting for back in the early 80s!
 
Wrecking Crew is notable for being one of the earliest "Mario" spinoff games, with the arcade version debuting before the release of Super Mario Bros.!  As Mario and/or Luigi, smash down the walls of the building and avoid the creepy monsters running all over the place.  Like all of the greatest Mario games ... you can't jump.  You can create your own levels, however!  Watch out for Foreman Spike ("Blackie" in Japan), and look out for the Golden Hammer -- star of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

Game Blog / New Notes: The Experience Points "Try Blowing On the Cartridge"
« Last post by David on July 10, 2019, 09:25:20 AM »
Do you like video game music and jazz?

You DO?

Amazingly enough, WTMK is now featuring jazzy covers of Mario music from a new Canadian video game music band, Experience Points!  Funk-groove-swinging-jazz sounds abound throughout their album.  Tune in to WTMK today, and visit their site if you'd like to pick up a copy of Try Blowing On the Cartridge, their debut album.  Tracks from Donkey Kong Country, Luigi's Mansion, Super Mario Sunshine, Super Mario Odyssey, and more abound on their new release -- and you can catch some of them on WTMK: All Mario Radio, All the Time.

(P.S. Don't blow on NES cartridges -- the condensation in your breath can lead to oxidization of the contacts, causing Goombas to crawl out of your tv screen.)

The community does live on—not here, but on Discord.

It's especially lively right now with SMM2 just released!
