It depends on how often they are used but all my snes saves are gone. All the high scores and such on super starwars (a new hope, empire, and return of the jedi) are gone forever.

@CowLaunch: Anecdote time! :D

i love Super Mario RPG to pieces. when it first came out, I begged my mom to rent it from Blockbuster for me, and I played it for three days straight (it was the summer, my little brother and sister were out with my dad for the weekend or whatever so I had unlimited access to the TV and SNES, good times). I think I had a handful of oreos on the second day, and that was it (except for the occasional drink) until on the afternoon of the third day when my mom sat me down and made me eat something lol. I slept in front of the TV, i was so serious about that game, but i also made some dumb mistakes (i didn't grind enough so I kept having to re-fight bosses, d'oh). I had just barely made it to the Axem Rangers battle when we finally had to take it back (yeah i can probably get through the entire game in one day now, lol, if i don't go out of my way re: sidequests), and I was so sad that my mom bought the game for me a couple days later. I've still got the original cartridge, and I actually hooked up the SNES every so often just so I could play that game until it finally came out for VC. I hope someday we get a true sequel someday, but i doubt it'll ever happen. TT^TT

does anyone know how long the battery generally lasts for SNES games with save options? I'm going to be a saaaaaaad panda when that thing dies and my original savefile is obliterated. :(

That's adorable. I don't think I have any good stories about childhood video-game tantrums, though. Just ones that end in me losing a bunch of friends.

@SuperSonic: where are you at in OoT? that's another game i played the heck out of when it came out, lol. much love for OoT (even though I've never been too happy with the ending, but that's beside the point :P)
@jangonov: nooooooooooooooooooooooooo... that sucks. ah well. i just have to get the Attack Scarf again in my VC savefile and I'll be on par with what I had on the cartridge, I guess... never did get the Super Suit. :(
@Chicken Brutus: ha, it was easy for me, because i had no friends that lived near me at the time. :P

but that's not the case now! Mallow just called, he said he's sick of being treated like a happy ball of fluff, so we're gonna get together and rectify that with a manly movie night. We're ordering pizza, gonna watch some bad Stallone flicks (Judge Dredd, Demolition Man... they're so bad they're good!), and we're also gonna drink beer and crush the cans against our foreheads. i don't know how well that's gonna work, with him being a cloud and all, but i guess we'll figure it out once we come to it. :D

@theblackdragon: Anecdote time!
I had to wait over a decade before SMRPG was released in Europe.

I was captivated by the 3D renderings in Nintendo magazines.

Whilst we're talking about anecdotes, when I was a kid I saw a Game & Watch on sale at a car boot sale for 50p (read cents). I had already spent my pocket money for that week (sweets or something) and I asked my mum to lend me some to buy it. She didn't and I think it's worth a fair bit more now...

@Adam: Hey, man, Judge Dredd has a solid 15% on Rotten Tomatoes. I thought Demolition Man would've been rated about as bad, but it's sitting at 65%. That's more than Mamma Mia!'s 53%... ouch, lol.

@CowLaunch: dang, you ain't kidding. even in crappy condition, those things go for a bit more than 50p (what is that, 75 cents? a buck? i know nothing of British moneys o_O;;;; ) nowadays. D:

@tbd we're having a great time here me and Iwata, he could work as a professional makeup-artist any-day. We watched abba together and had a couple of laughs. You know one billion records sold and the record-byers can't be wrong right? Btw weird al yankovic called Iwata and since i am trilingual i had to translate. It seems like the haircut you borrowed from Al is way overdue and he wanted it back + interest whatever that means...

Back then it was probably about a dollar, now I think the currencies are nearer parity, not an expert though.

I only have a few dungeons left. They are the Shadow Temple,the Spirit Temple,the Gerudo Traning Grounds[I want those ice arrows],and Ganon's Tower. But trying to rescue those carpenters from Gerudo's Fortress might be a little more difficult than I thought. I have rescued 2 and I have 2 more to go. I'm not used to stealth in a Zelda game,but I'll get through it soon.

I'll more then likely start playing Oot again sometime tonight. It is an awesome game,maybe one of the best games I have ever played. Thanks to this game,I'm now a Zelda fan :D
I can't believe I dislike Zelda until recently. Maybe it was the fact that when Oot came out when I was 7,I sucked at puzzles then.
I have all VC Zelda games and I plan on trying the rest when I complete Oot. But I don't know if I'll like the 2D Zeldas or not. I have completed 2 Zelda games years ago,which are Wind Waker and Twilight Princess.
I don't know why you dislike the ending. But I'll complete Oot first and watch the ending before I ask you why. I'll keep everybody updated on my progress through my signature.

No, I'm not a star. Like all Square creations, I have more than 1 form :)

And no, action figures don't require batteries. Don't you remember the good old days when it was a piece of plastic (wood in my case) with bendable arms?

And as for my star form, I am then made out of hydrogen. Not helium like my Grandad, I'm not a Red Giant just yet.

lol, i've gotten lost so many times in there, getting all turned around on myself and stuff. and i'll be glad to discuss why i dislike the ending with you once you've seen it for yourself. :) don't wanna spoil it.

@BahamutZero That might be true for most action figures,but that dosen't apply to you! How can an action figure shoot out bullets without batteries? :P

@CowLauch
Don't get Gorons as pets! A Zora will be so much better [especially Princess Ruto]. :D

Iwata stopped by the house yesterday and confessed that he is the one changing my profile name to "weirdadam." He said he won't change it back until I buy all the NPC titles. Fortunately we were able to reach a compromise: Instead, I'm going to start pretending to like the It's Your Birthday game and encourage other users to buy more WiiWare games.

Too much to comment on...best...thread...EVAH!!!!! :D

I will say, however, that I clicked "report" for the first post by Esposch before it was ever edited or replied to, because it seemed like the best way to try to avoid a massive flame war. I apologize if this was in error, but it was all I could think of to do without replying to his post, which would probably have been like a tank of gas on that fire.
