I'd say _slightly_ better, mostly because there are fewer places where you fall into bottomless pits a billion times. Oh, and the travelling is actually a good time -- I wasn't bored with the stylus games until the very end when I was looking for a few things.

Edit: Just beat the game last night -- good stuff! My only complaint is that I want a return of Super Sonic as playable during regular levels, and not regulated to what basically boils down to a cool bonus stage at the end.

Good, they fixed my biggest issue with the first. That and the ridiculous story.

I've been playing Ouendan 2 for a while and after beating the 3rd bonus song on "Insane" mode SPOILERS I unlocked and evil EVIL more difficult mode! What the hell seriously this is nuts. All the large circles that close in on the numbers are invisible, along with 90% of my tap-pattern interpretation. I have to go almost completely by memory. o_O;/SPOILERS

MySims DS is such a shameless Animal Crossing ripoff. Your first job in town even resembles your first job for Tom Nook in WW. If I wasn't worried about the state of my town after 10 months of not playing I'd put this down and play that instead.

Unfortunately I've heard they've also added lots more text and talk than the first game. Can anyone confirm?

Bah. Wake me up when they have Chrono Trigger (near-direct port or new 3D remake).

If they try to recreate Chrono Trigger all they'll do is saturate it with all the crap I hate about Final Fantasy games and lose the magic that made it so good. No offense to FF fans. I think a port to DS or VC (ideally) is probably the best option.

Yes, please.

No other cinematics or cutscenes necessary. And I'm not sure there's much more room for "bonus content" either. Just the original, untouched, 800 Wii points.

Tales of Innocence looks amazing. I think it looks better than FFIV

This looks really awesome actually. From what I can tell, the graphics look really good for the DS.

Nah. I want it on DS. Just put the menus on the touch screen (with basic touch control) and leave the rest of the game alone.

Yeah, that sounds good in theory. But once they put it on DS, they'd have to do other things to convince people to buy it for $30, unless they sold it for even more like FFIII (God forbid). So then after tweaking, the result would be extra dungeons added at the end, an easier difficulty (:roll:), lag in some animations, and big cutscenes that take 10 seconds to load. Maybe some new spells and combos. Sounds great and all, but I'd rather spend 800 Wii points than $30+.

Then again, portable Chrono Trigger ... mmm tasty. More than anything, I guess I'm afraid they'd mess it up too much.

The only other option is to get a flash card and a ROM of Chrono Trigger. The carts are roughly the same price as a game, sometimes up to a hundred bucks.

Well, Square already said that they aren't going to release their games on VC - because they can make more money by doing remakes or repacking the old games, etc.

In other words, Square sucks a big corroded nut sack.

Either way you'd sacrifice a lot of sound quality, and there's two reasons that immediately gets rid of any reason I'd want a portable CT (obviously though if it were the only option then I'd get it anyway, but):

1. All the music would be muffled, tinny, and just bad sounding in general, and the music is extremely important to the mood in that game.

2. The sound for Luminaire would get screwed up! That's one of the best sounds in a video game ever.

How would the music be muffled? The DS has excellent sound quality. I use it as an MP3 player, and it sounds just perfect. If there was anything I would be worried about with a remake of any game on the DS, sound would not be it.

In other words, they're interested in profit? Hell, I'd rather buy a portable remake than a VC version - portables are the only way I got myself to actually play all the way through FF5 and 6, I just couldn't do it originally when I had the ROMs. I'd bet the same will happen with Chrono Trigger - if I could get it portable, I'd end up actually playing it all the way through.

I think the bottom line--if I'm not mistaken--is that SNES emulation on the DS is still in its infancy.

See http://dev-scene.com/NDS/Emulators for a list of emulators and their progress.

More specifically, Chrono Trigger doesn't run well and has issues with sprites freaking out during animation. I would imagine there are similar issues in all games.
