So, what about some Arcade style games besides Sonic and All-stars Racing Transformed and it's prequel and Crash Team Racing? Any recommendations on the PSN and PS3?

Ridge Racer Type Four is a blast. I'm on a Ridge Racer fever. What are some good Ridge Racer games?

I'm thinking of picking up a Wii U, to play multiplayer games with the girlfriend. So I need recommendations for local multiplayer games on Wii U, preferably co-op, but otherwise is fine too. Games have to be out by this summer.

Here's what I got so far, on my to-buy list:

Super Mario 3D World, Tropical Freeze, Rayman Legends, Mario Kart 8, Trine 2, NSMBU, NintendoLand, Wonderful 101 and Pikmin 3.

I'd also like some impressions on those latter 2, if anyone's played them co-operatively. Worth it? Wonderful 101 looks a little (too) hectic in multiplayer.

And any any local multiplayer games on PS3? Not shooters. I thought of Portal 2, Trine and Guacamelee.

Sure, but I think I have the usual suspects, my Wii game collection is about 50 titles strong. I might have missed some rare WiiWare jewels, though.

Hmmm I'll have a look into that one, thanks!

I haven't seen it, but apparently Captain America WS is really good (but personally I'm more excited for the new X-men )

I'm currently thinking about whether or not I should buy Professor Layton and The Lost Future for the ds, only the problem is that my ds has a fault right on the bottom left hand corner of the touch screen that stops it from responding input properly. Will this make the menu and/or some puzzles unplayable or are there conventional button alternatives I can use?

Which is the better version of Chrono Trigger, the PS1 Version, or the SNES version? How does the choice system work, I know they are multiple endings, but very little beyond that. How frequent are they, and what kind of choices are they? Good or evil? The wisest decision? A mix?

The cheapest option would be the Wii U virtual console. But the PS1 version is definitely the worst. While there are animated cutscenes, every single battle needs to load and the load times aren't short. The DS version has a more accurate translation, but I've heard it said that it lacks the charm of the SNES version. There are a few added areas, and it is cheaper than an original cart. The choice system is different than you might think. It mostly revolves around how and when you beat the final boss. You won't be able to get a different ending the first time, but after that, depending on what you do (or don't do) before reaching the final boss, the ending will change. And, yes, you have to play through most of the game to get to each one. I'll probably do a few and then just watch the rest on youtube.

Check in for new sheets every Monday. There's lots of Fire Emblem arrangements coming.

There's no morality as far as I know in Chrono Trigger. We're still talking about an SNES game here. I've only gotten one ending, but I think there are 14? I know some of them depend on little decisions you make in the story, or who you bring to the Final Boss fight, or when you fight the final boss (the last two thirds of the game are technically optional).

It's the SNES version with the option for the Animated Cutscenes and arranged music from the PSOne version, and an adjustable interface. Literally the only downside is that there are added side quests that aren't really worth the effort, but they're still completely optional side quests.

Does Chrono Cross advance the choice system at all? I think my interest might be waining for the games if not.

Chrono Cross uses the choice system more effectively, yes, perhaps too well. The game can be a completionist's nightmare at times, but if you explore a lot you'll be heavily rewarded. Overall though, the choices in the game are closer to something like Mass Effect (where every action has a consequence) than any other old game I've encountered. CC can very much be described as a game about choice.

Okay, so I have 500 Wii Points left, and I just want to get rid of them before the Wii shop channel is, eventually, shut down. I don't want any game that is already on the Wii U eShop, and I already own NES Final Fantasy. WiiWare or Virtual console games are welcome.

Yeah, guitars are cool.

My musical project Comet Tail made a couple of recordings.
