I'm probably going to finally get Super Star Wars, though I'm afraid of the difficulty, and, from this batch, Contra Rebirth, though i'm afraid of the difficulty.

I think I was it was weird to have jumping elephants in the game.

come on Final Fantasy NES!!!

also, has anyone had any problems with NES titles slowing down? I noticed in kirby's adventure at some points of the game the gameplay would get really sluggish and then it went back to normal again.

I have been playing the NES game Punchout and have not noticed any slowdown, but it's not exactly a processor intensive game. Maybe Kirby's Adventure had that slowdown originally and it's reproducing that?

Slowdown was actually a problem in quite a few original SNES games, especially early games before they figured out programming tricks and efficiencies. Not sure specifically about Kirby, though, because I never played it on SNES.

With Gradius and Contra out of the way, it seems that the next title in the series will be Castlevania the Adventure Rebirth, according to the ESRB rating.
http://www.esrb.org/...rtificate=27675

Castlevania the Adventure ReBirth

Platform: Wii

Rating: Teen

Content descriptors: Animated Blood, Fantasy Violence

Rating summary: This is a side-scrolling action game in which players battle against monsters in Dracula's castle. Players use a chained whip to fight their way through halls and dungeons filled with zombies, skeletons, flying eyeballs, and bats. The enemy creatures frequently shoot projectiles and attack players in hand-to-hand combat. If players sustain too much damage, they keel over and emit a burst of red blood. Some rooms in the castle also have spikes or spears stained with red, blood-like splotches.

That was very common. Gradius and Castlevania IV are good (or bad) examples of this as I recall.

Kirby's Adventure pushed the NES to the limit. Like others have said, it's probably part of the original game.

I was wondering the same thing. I've tried looking around but couldn't find any info. Of course I've never really tried before so I have no idea where the folk who post it here get the info from so early.

The press release hasn't been posted yet. It's usually released around 6am eastern, but there's been a couple of times they've been quite late.

I know, I've been checking it too. I like to hope that we're getting something exciting, but then, I don't really like to hope about these sorts of things.

There's an update to the Nintendo Channel. It's actually a decent update. The whole thing is renovated. You can even rate/recommend DS games. You can see your game records..aka I've played Animal Crossing for likw 224 hours :lol:

You can also stream videos in high def, or whatever their version of high def is. Whatever it is, it looks MUCH better than what it used to be.

Now Playing:
:pc: Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft

:pc: Diablo III: Reaper of Souls

:wiiu: Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze

:3ds: Animal Crossing: New Leaf

:3ds: Pokemon Battle Trozei

So you can see how much you've played all of your games? If so, that is an AWESOME update, and I'm not being sarcastic. That's something I've wanted since the Wii came out, and in fact something that I thought the system would do at release.

If I wrote the PR for the weekly store updates I'd have gone on vacation this week too.

Crash N' The Boys Street Challange is actually pretty awesome, although there are a lot of other games in that series that never made it out of Japan that are superior, like the Ice Hockey game, and the Samurai Game.

Crash N the Boys is a worthy addition to the VC. No seriously. It's part of the Kunio series (AKA River City Ransom).

Also, the Nintendo Channel update is pretty cool. The whole thing's been redone

Oscar in Toyland looks ridiculous. Can't find anything about Art Academy.

The game records are scary, here's mine:

  • Smash Bros Brawl
    • 362 hours, 52 minutes
    • 159 times
  • Animal Crossing: City Folk
    • 158 hours, 19 minutes
    • 55 times
  • Rockband 2 (I have a feeling my roommates left my Wii on here)
    • 100 hours, 10 minutes
    • 17 times
  • The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess
    • 79 hours, 29 minutes
    • 41 times
  • Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn
    • 66 hours, 36 minutes
    • 16 times

Also ranking up there are Okami and Mario Galaxy. Surprisingly, WiiSports has less than I thought at around 58 hours. I'm also surprised that Animal Crossing is that high, since I only played it from Oct-Dec of last year and haven't touched it since.

A bit offtopic, but is there an expiration to the free 1000 points that I got for buying a DSi? I hope not, because I have no idea what to buy.

The offer will expire at some point, but not the points.

There's a homebrew app that does something similar to what the update does, but it doesn't work correctly on everything. (I think it said I played Wii Sports for negative time or something)

Will give it a shot.
