    Yeah, actually. Two weekends ago, I saw classic controllers in-store and this weekend I saw quite a stock of all controllers at a Fred Meyer (and 3 systems still in stock...it all apparently came in that morning, the manager was suprised any was still in-stock by that afternoon). Also, at Target I saw several classic controllers and nunchuks still available that same afternoon (once again, the stock came in that morning, but all systems and remotes were sold by 3, which is the time I came in). Looks like supply is beginning to finally catch up to demand. I never got to play that game, but I've heard only good things.

    FINALLY! Super Mario World on VC (and two more games I don't care about).

    Yeah, it looks really good to me. I really enjoyed Elebits, and by the looks of it I'm gonna have a lot of fun with Dewey's Adventure as well. As for the weird-sounding controls, I think it'll end up working just fine. Remember Donkey Kong: Jungle Beat? Those controls were really odd, but I found them to work well nevertheless.

    Got my first classic controller today. Pretty nice, I found it to be very ergonomic. Once I get some more free time, I'll finally be able to play A Link to the Past and Mario 64. WOO!
  5. I only played as first player, but the friends who I played with still enjoyed it. It does get a little repetitive, but that kinda comes with the genre.
  6. Oh yeah, ToS is a lot of fun with friends (that's the only way I played it too...all 3 times through). The one problem is in battles the camera only focuses on the first player, but I don't think it detracts from the experience too much. Good fun, good fun.
  7. Agreed. There was basically no information in the article other than "video game remixing communities exist and they share MP3s."
  8. That's a good point, actually. If someone missed a few play sessions, they fell pretty far behind and was damn hard to catch up again. Anyway, it does take time for that game. Not a hundred hours, but maybe more like 30-40. That's about what we played by the time we beat the final boss, if I recall. I'm definitely looking forward to the DS and Wii FF:CC games.
  9. I personally really enjoyed playing Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles with a few friends. To really enjoy it, though, people really have to COOPERATE. I tried playing with some other friends a couple times, and it sucked the fun right out of it because they just wouldn't cooperate. The few I normally played with were the only ones I could play that game with after a while, just because we worked so well as a team.
  10. I'm with you on that. I totally thought the two realms were gonna be buddy-buddy after all that, so I was actually pretty shocked by it being shattered. I guess it also makes sense, in that the regular people in the light didn't know what was going on the entire time and maybe are better off not knowing. LOL, that about sums it up .
  11. Seriously. Seems kinda dumb. Didn't seem to make sense in the context of what she was talking about just prior to that, to me at least. Anyway, personally I really enjoyed the ending and didn't find that it detracted from my gaming experience. I never got all the way through OoT, so I can't really compare the two in that respect even if I wanted to. Great game, great ending as far as I'm concerned.
  12. What's pissing you off in FFIII?

    I'm not bashing it, but it definitely wasn't perfect, and to me not better than Goldeneye because of the constant framerate drops.

    So how about that new Sonic and the Secret Rings trailer eh? I'm still hoping this'll be a fun game.

    If you neglect the fact that the game was almost broken. Seriously, once you got any amount of real action going, you were really just depending on luck to hit your target and/or not die what with the ridiculous chop (and yeah, that's with the memory expansion). I didn't own it personally, but a friend did and I ended up playing it quite a bit. It was no doubt a good game, and it had the potential to be a better gaming experience than Goldeneye, but it simply wasn't due to the dropped framerate. Anyway, it would be pretty cool to get those Rare-developed N64 games onto the VC. Speaking of the VC, I remember them talking about independant/small-budget gaming houses publishing games onto the VC. I wonder when we'll be seeing some of those idie ventures finally on there.
  16. Yeah lol, Mantis. "I CAN'T READ YOU!" Considering that was my only exposure to the first Metal Gear Solid, I really enjoyed it. Anyway, I can understand your stance on remakes. It becomes considerably less special if they remake it everytime new hardware comes out. While I'm not a FFVII fan (I really wanted to like it, but I just couldn't get into it), if Square-Enix decides to remake it to the DS or any other hardware, I doubt it'd be watered down. It is one of Square-Enix's biggest IPs, and despite supposedly not-so-good spin-off games (I never played Dirge of Cerberus, nor do I intend to, so I can't really judge it), I don't think they'd really jeopardize its success by making a crap remake.
  17. I personally have been enjoying FFIII, so if they were to remake Chrono Trigger in a similar way I'd be ok with it. If they were to just throw a port onto the GBA, DS, or VC instead of doing a remake I'd buy it too. It's probably my favorite RPG (and it doesn't so much have that nostalgia factor as I only played it for the first time 4-ish years ago), so no matter what they choose to do with it, if it hits market again I'm buying it. Anyway, of the GBA FFs, I only played Dawn of Souls thus far, but eventually I'll be getting FFIV and V (and VI when it comes out). Once I beat the games I've been playing, I'm probably gonna move on to those.
  18. That is the WORST Dr. Zoidberg Kirby EVAR!!!!1 ... j/k (I know, Zealot Kirby ) I like the Mother Brain Kirby.
  19. lol, personally I would be saying, "I hope it's just my copy." I'd rather it be an isolated incident than all copies of the game being broken . Anyway that sucks. Prince of Persia: Warrior Within was the only game I can recall playing at least recently that was really bugged out (it was almost unplayably broken the way it just kept freezing).

    Who ISN'T wating for Super Metroid? Well, thanks to A Link to the Past being added to the VC, it prompted me to look for a classic controller online (since I've learned over these few months that I'm not going to get a controller of any kind in-store for the Wii anytime soon). Turns out amazon had them in-stock for retail cost (I'm not going to buy one for over retail...boo for console/controller scalpers), so once that arrives in a couple days I'll finally get to play A Link to the Past, Mario 64, and Super Castlevania. Still hoping for Capcom to release some of the Megaman/Megaman X series onto the VC.

    If that were true, it'd be pretty sweet. I like how the story makes it sound like Mario Galaxy was really gonna come out before Prime 3, despite the fact that Prime 3 was almost a launch title. Anyway, I had a lot of fun with Hunters online, so if these rumors are true I'd be looking forward to having Metroid fun online again.
  22. lol. Cuz, you know, someone actually said something bad about Megaman X. Right, and back on track, Sonic 2 was way better than the first Sonic IMO (especially given that you couldn't connect Sonic The Hedgehog with Sonic and Knuckles).
  23. lol, yeah it felt like an odd comparison for some reason . Oh, and Megaman 3 is better than the first 2. I'd personally say Megaman 4 was better than 3, just because of the charged shot.

    You mean that one which was a boss stage for...whoever? I had originally thought I only had to do the stuff like pointing the wii remote out and holding it like the other 3 did in front of me, but I failed the first time cuz I didn't do the little dance too. So yeah, I do all the moves because I thought it was necessary . Looks so silly watching someone else do the dance thing, it's great. I agree, kinda like playing Advance Wars DS with the stylus. Seems just like a natural fit.
  25. Hell yeah. No one said how much better Super Mario Bros 3 was to the original Super Mario Bros yet, so I'll go ahead and throw that out there. Seems like there should be a lot more, just can't think of any others at the moment.
