I'm boycotting the VC until they put out Pro Wrestling (NES).

I'd also like to see R.C. Pro-Am, Skate or Die and T&C Surf Designs.


A winner is you!

I thought I was the only person who remembered T&C. Wasn't that game terrible, though? I remember wanting a really cool skateboarding game and the only tricks you could do were railslides and jumping off your board and landing on it again, right? And the surfing hardly had any tricks either, if I remember correctly. Just get your surfboard to the top of the wave and tap up and down to throw your nose over the top repeatedly to get points.

Skate or Die was great. 720 was also a blast but I hated the controller in the arcade.

I loved Super Adventure Island when I was a kid, but I seem to recall it being pretty hard. And it's one of those games where you start at the beginning of the game every time.


Super Adventure Island is good, but the TG16 version which has been on the VC almost since the beginning, is better. The best one is the long forgotten Super Adventure Island 2 for SNES which is more of a non-linear Action RPG as opposed to the rest of the series being strictly platforming.

Sometimes ordinary actions can lead you to extraordinary places. Case in point: this week's lineup of new downloadable games for the Wii and Nintendo DSi systems.

In Dreamwalker, your goal is just to get a good night's sleep by overcoming a flurry of disruptive challenges. Browse hundreds of games available for instant download via the WiiWare and Nintendo DSiWare services and discover just how easy it is to go from zero to maximum gaming fun.

I've got 500 points left on my DSi, and I think I'll buy Go Series Picdun with them.

Here's a crappy trailer.



Nintendo Life gave it a 90, and I tend to like games they like. Seems like a pretty packed game for DSiware. Here's their review.

So I went off to press.nintendo.com to see what came out this week. Instead I get a little message about how they're switching things up with the online stores. Okay, great, so switching things up means that you can't release anything the fucking week after e3? Sure...

I get it, Nintendo, you're pretty much done with the DS and the Wii but you haven't told me shit about how much the Wii U will cost and I know that the 3DS will get a better version in a year so I'm not going to buy one now.

I'm down for Skyward Sword, but it fucking sucks that I'm pretty much being forced out of the DS. Did it ever even get outsold by the PSP in the US? Yeah, I'm off on a tangent but it seems stupid to have launched the 3DS when no one wanted the DS to get replaced.

EDIT - Oops haha. I guess they're going to do updates on Thursdays now, nevermind, carry on.

PSP has 17 million owners in the US.
67 million users worldwide.

Wikipedia is a little behind, stating 127 million DS units worldwide a year ago. It's got at least 55 million users in the US. Kinda the best-selling handheld of all time.

I really enjoyed Castlevania Rebirth although I'm dying for a stage select code. You can't save your progress so any time I want to play it, I have to start over.

Regarding the DS vs. PSP sales numbers, I knew that DS was ahead, I guess I was more looking for some evidence that the PSP was beating the DS on a month to month basis. I'm not that worried about it, not enough to go do the research but I will say that anecdotally, it never happened in the US. We don't enjoy Monster Hunter enough. I guess my beef is that if you're winning the monthly sales wars, why fix what isn't broken.

Come on Nintendo, announce the 3ds lite for next summer so I can at least look forward to getting one.

The PSP was ahead for a month or two, in japan. It had actually topped sales charts for systems, in japan, during that time. Read that on the-magicbox

Holy crap, I had 5400 points on my account. Snagged Chrono Trigger and now I don't know what else to blow my points on. According to Wikipedia, the Nintendo points system is going to be phased out-- how does that work for points already on the account? I just don't want to get screwed over.

Maybe I'll gift a bunch of people Super Mario RPG and get some more sales for the game in so that the following happens:

-Square and Nintendo quickly realize that in the DS' twilight, a port can be made to cash in
-Square and Nintendo quickly realize that a sequel should be discussed
- For no apparent reason, Mother 3 is translated and released in America, along with a series of sequels that are critically acclaimed and sell millions.

Points don't convert over from DSi to 3DS. You have to spend 'em before you transfer. Same thing will happen with the Wii to Wii U most likely.

I thought I had some points left over on my Wii, turned it on to see about downloading Chrono Trigger, and ran into a big fat zero. :cry: I'll probably throw $20 worth on there when Final Fantasy VI comes out and I can grab both.

I have 5100. Did you load up during that pepsi promotion too :lol: I think I paid about $25 for 10000 points. Been spending them on indy games I wasn't sure about like like Bit Trip, And Yet it Moves (seemed very bland at first but recommended, liked it more than World of Goo).

I'll get Retro City Rampage, La Mulana and maybe Machinarium once they come out and that should get rid of most my left overs. The demos they launched late saved me a bit of money, I almost blind purchased Frobot which wouldn't have been too bad of a mistake.

KingBroly, I was referring to this

The Nintendo Points currency system is not supported on the Nintendo 3DS, and will eventually become fully obsolete on the Wii and Nintendo DSi as well when Nintendo's real currency-based system becomes standard. In Japan, the Wii and Nintendo DSi shops already converted to the new currency system that is used by the Nintendo 3DS.

So, it sounds at some point the Wii shop will stop taking points. I'm curious how that affects existing points cards, and points already loaded on someone's system.

Also, Mad, I didn't load up on Pepsi (though it sounds like you did a hell of a job) I got cards from TRU when they were 12.XX. Yet It Moves, I completely forgot about. I may grab that. Also, good call on Retro City Rampage-- that game looks awesome. I remember reading a preview in Nintendo Power months ago-- still not out, eh? Also, Sega is bringing out a localized version of Monster IV, so I'll definitely be grabbing that to support imports done properly.
You hurt the right person and you're wrong for life.
