    Nintendo Wii

    Interesting with the scan that shows Eddy's stats, looking at the bottom it seems like it is played with a GC controller (what with the Y and B buttons they show). I wonder if you can choose between playing with a GC controller and a classic controller...guess we'll see.

    Cool. Personally, having not played any FE games but Path of Radiance, I didn't have any real problem with the battle sequences. Then again, I'm the only one of my friends who played that game that actually left the battle animations on for most of the game (the last couple missions I finally decided to turn it off, given they were already long enough without the extraneous animations). I really enjoyed playing FE:PoR, so I'm definitely looking forward to Goddess of Dawn. Still find it weird that the lamest character in PoR seems to be a major character in this new one, though.

    lol don't hate the hardware, hate the game (and the developer who didn't live up to the hype). Anyway, I've got faith in Metroid Prime 3 being awesome (dunno anything about other FPSs coming out anytime soon though). Got WarioWare: Smooth Moves yesterday evening. That is a fun one IMO. Someone had asked earlier if anyone else felt underwhelmed by the WarioWare experience, and for me that's a no. Definitely more fun when you have at least a couple other people there laughing at the ridiculousness with you. Gonna try doing the pass-the-controller multiplayer thing Friday with a few friends.
  4. lol, oops. My mistake, I had misread that statement about returning it as a misnomer for attempting to exchange. Anyway, that's too bad.
  5. I agree, it was pretty fun. I found it too easy though, albeit that may be because aiming is easier with the Wiimote (got it the 2nd try).
  6. Does Nintendo not replace them if they come with a dead pixel? I dunno if you've tried contacting their customer support or not yet, but that's what I'd have done (especially if it doesn't look like the store I got it from is going to be carrying replacement units anytime soon).

    Here is a list IGN compiled of the upcoming Wii games for Winter. It doesn't look too bad, and I guess there are some good diversions until Mario Galaxy and Prime 3 come out. Also, honestly I don't expect it to be good, but dammit I wanna try Sonic and The Secret Rings! At the very least, it looks a lot better than the Sonic on 360 and PS3 in terms of gameplay IMO. EDIT: I was glad to hear they got fired for that, personally. In the end I guess it's the participants at fault for deciding to do this, but the radio station was certainly partly to blame too. Pretty sad the lady died just trying to get a Wii for her kids, though .

    Damn, thanks to the bit of snow Seattle got last night, the delivery truck got delayed for the Gamestop I most often go to, so no WarioWare: Smooth Moves for me today. Ah well, it'll certainly be in tomorrow, so not really a big deal.
  9. I like my DS to do just one thing: play games. If I want to check my e-mail and whatnot away from home/work, well, that's why I have a laptop too . FuriousFure: If you can't find WarioWare: Touched! now I'm guessing because it's no longer produced. Awesome game, though. Good luck.
  10. Yeah me too, which is why I clicked on the thread. Boo . Also, isn't it redundant to say VGM Music? Just pointing that out...
  11. lol, well done. The thread at least made me laugh.
  12. I haven't played Link to the Past yet (one of those weirdos who had a Genesis instead of SNES...waiting for it to come onto the Virtual Console) so I can't judge it against that, but I also found Twilight Princess to be more enjoyable than Ocarina of Time. Specifically, enjoyed the story more, as I felt it to be more involved.
  13. Oh noes, the world isn't fair after all!? Of course some people who don't deserve it get more money than they should whole others who are more deserving don't. Anyway, it isn't always their "unique talents" in their sport or in acting/directing that dictate how much money they earn; it's often times their star power. Just by having their name in the production, how much more money will the film stand to make? You could never convince me Stalone has any acting prowess whatsoever, but does that have an effect on what Rocky Balboa grosses? No. Stalone is in it so it WILL make money. Seems to me the MLS has a lot to gain by bringing in a big name like Beckham, so it's really no wonder they're willing to throw so much money at him.

    Nintendo Wii

    Cool stuff. Damn, I just realized this is the last game for a while I'm looking forward to for the Wii. Are there any other games in Jan-March that are sounding good so far? Seems like all the games' release dates that I'm really looking forward to are TBA. Maybe they'll release Super Metroid or some other really great games on the VC in the meantime, but I guess at the very least the drought in good Wii games gives me more time with my DS. EDIT: I'm still looking forward to Wii Play, which I preordered already, albeit mainly for the extra controller (the games look entertaining enough when playing with friends and whatnot).

    lol, that kinda sucks. Damn, I still haven't gotten to play Wii Sports while drinking. Yeah dude, it's gonna be awesome. Can't wait for Monday.

    Nintendo Wii

    Yeah, same here. I know how to hold onto a controller, so I'm not worried lol.
  17. lol, I looked through the SA forums thread and here are a couple I particularly liked (2nd one just cuz it's the only Avatar-related Kirby I've seen).
  18. Don't tell me if "it" did or did not! lol, ok. And, completely off-topic,

    Yay for Robot Chicken( and Venture Bros. but that's neither here nor there ).
  20. I definitely like the idea. I don't personally have Electroplankton, but a friend of mine has it and loves it. I played around with it and found it to be pretty awesome. I'm gonna have to check out the thread you have more info on this later, since I'm just about to head out from work. Anyway, good job man; it's pretty cool.
  21. lol, totally. Like Megaman ZX .
  22. I hope so. I'm surprised that they have such a list of games coming to the DS and, more than that, I'm surprised how many look good to me. Chocobo and the Magic Picture Book and FF:CC I am especially excited for, but Wonderful Life and DQIX look interesting as well. With any luck, they'll be '07 releases. I also recently read a little bit about Mistwalker's game coming to the DS, ASH: Ancient Sealed Heat, and understand that is supposed to be a lat '07 release. Looking forward to it. At any rate, it looks like 2007 will especially be a great year for RPGs on the DS.

    Xbox 360

    I wouldn't be too surprised either. I remember seeing the $100 360 Cores, that was pretty crazy. Btw, I've never heard of Microcenter...is that a strictly East Coast chain, or is Seattle just behind the times (or secret option 3: online store)?

    Xbox 360

    I agree. I think also the fact that it's so damn tough to get a PS3 and Wii in stores for the holidays have probably helped to push up 360 sales (parents wanting to buy one of the new game systems for their kids for Christmas, and finding that the 360 is the only one immediately available). I saw a couple cases of that happening when I've visited EB/Gamestops these past couple weeks. I also don't think the agressive marketing is unrelated to this. Anyway, I wonder if they'll end up turning a profit this quarter since software sales should be way up too.

    Xbox 360

    Yeah, I agree. I've only seen stuff for Blue Dragon and Lost Odyssey but it's giving me high hopes for future Mistwalker products. EDIT: page 3 already. Is it too soon to call this thread more than an attempt?
