Fanatical is a very reliable service like GreenManGaming or HumbleBundle and delivers legitimate keys instantly

to quote the movie The Big Lebowski : "no funny stuff"

Yep, these guys are solid.

For the fellow RFDers that remember but weren't aware of the name change, Fanatical is formerly known as "Bundle Stars".

I've bought so many random bundles off that site whenever threads popped up here lol I still play BlazeRush with my buddies whenever we get together; one of the best hidden gems ever for me that was in a really cheap bundle.

Is there a service like this for Nintendo Switch games?

Would be awesome, if you could pay a price like this for a bundle and get activation codes for games on the Switch.

It's not *just* emulation, they have a decent presentation, support scanlines, different aspect ratios, controllers and smoothing

but yeah I mean of course it's emulation. At this point I don't know why we're still surprised by this.

Nope, sorry. Gotta pay the Nintendo premium price

I believe Humble Bundle now has Switch games but I wouldn't hold my breath

Emulation can be done properly, just look at the ports companies like M2, HexaDrive or Iron Galaxy have made. DotEmu is bottom of the barrel of retro game porting studios. The only game that runs more or less accurately in this bundle is KOF XIII.

I can verify this and I regret even paying the $5 for them. The Metal Slugs run really slow and choppy and are virtually unplayable.
