@Waveboy Sonic Colors is awesome, but I know how much you dislike Sonic games. You sure seem to like Klonoa though, so why not give Kirby's Return to Dreamland a chance instead? Or that new Rayman Origins since you liked Rayman back on the PSX.

I actually picked up Kirby's Return to Dreamland a couple of days ago. :p It's going to be the next game i fire up. Super Mario 3D land was supposed to be next, but I'm sending my 3DS for repair once i get my next pay check.....There's no way i'm letting that audio clipping from the wonky headphone jack destroy my experience with Super Mario 3D Land.

As for Rayman Origins, that's most likely going to be a Christmas present hehe. Looks totaly awesome! :D
As for NiGHTS it looks to share that simular dream-like and surreal atmosphere as Klonoa, which i adore. Besides, what do i got to lose? $10, whoopie! :p

The multiplayer in Kirby is fun but also sometimes frustrating and not on the level or New Super Mario Bros. Wii, for instance.

Right, I'm just saying you're not missing out on much, multiplayer-wise.

Ah well, thanks for clearing that up. I ended up with Rayman even though I picked Kirby. It was fun while it lasted (only rented it). I wish Nintendo games didn't stay so high priced. I could easily get Rayman for $20 in a year or two now that I think about it.

And Rayman Origins isn't one of them. :p
Anyways, what would you guys do. Go for the regular version of Skyward Sword for $49.99, or dish out over $160 on Amazon or eBay for the Limited Edition....At this point I can't see myself spending that much more to score the Golden Wii remote. I'm still a little iffy, but i think i can live without it.....Then again. :p

Well that's looking at the cup half empty.:P You're talking as if I could only have fun if I'm playing Rayman Origins, which is clearly a mistake.

Forget Rayman and every other game on the Pink Panther planet...All you need is G.I.J.O.E for the Commodore 64 and you're boinkin' ;)


O:56 - 1:05 cracks me up everytime haha. Must be the combination of the hilarious truck/animation and the music. :D

Ok guys, I have a huge dilemma. Is it worth picking up Impossible Mission Wii for AUD $10? I know its a remake of the C64 game, but what's the quality (worth the get?)

Anybody recommend any Whimsical & obscure Donatello-Dirt cheap Wii titles that ended up with mediocre reviews that you actually enjoyed? B-)

NiGHTS: Journey of Dreams easily fits the batman-bill, which i'll definitly be getting closer to Christmas. :)

I'm looking for the Wii version of Impossible Mission everywhere.
I really liked the C64 game and I would pick this up if I could find a PAL version of it for 10-15€.

You can buy it, if you don't like it, you might like to trade or sell it to me. :)

I heard the original is included, is that true?

LOL i know hey? Possibly the funniest moment in Videogame history. Only retro titles have the ability to creat laughs. it's the simplistic akward sprite animations(as seen here) and funky funny chip tunes in combination that can get hilarious and bizzarO results. :D It's why the AVGN meshes SO well with Nes and Atari games.

Xenoblade or Monster Hunter Tri

First I have to say while being pretty addicted to both, they start to get tedious.at points. You should have a liking for repeating things often to get better (grinding).

Monster Hunter Tri
To complete the game you have to kill a strong, big monster over and over again, hoping to get the materials you need to upgrade your character and make some progress, then find the next stronger monster, grind this beast twenty times, then you can wear his hide, make a new weapon from its teeth and horns, etc., and move on with the next stronger monster.... And one day you'll be facing the strongest monster in the game, and then you've accomplished something.
Monster Hunter Tri has the better graphics.

Xenoblade Chronicles
You'll be doing lots of sidequests and tons of exploring to complete the game. Fetch a number of something, kill a number of something, find someone, and it's all repeating too often, like 400-500 times. The story is much deeper than what you can find Monster Hunters little fisherman village, but that doesn't matter, Xenoblade needs its good plot, Monster Hunter needs just hunting & collecting.
Xenoblades has the better music.

Hard to say which is better. With these two Wii games I was always pending between 9/10 and 10/10. In the end I played them both more than 170 hours, and despite some flaws it was worth it.

Monster Hunter's online gameplay sets the deal for me though. I'd put it before Xenoblade Chronicles because playing with people is better than playing alone.

  • But I think this is a bette rplace, tbd.

Do you guys recommend final fantasy crystal chronicles crystal bearers. I want to buy it tomorrow. The Problem is I heard the map is system is bad and you can get lost easily. I know the graphics are great from the videos I've seen and the characters look compelling to play. I've never played a WII final fantasy and want to try it out. My only worry is i'll buy it and won't be able it beat it due to getting lost all the time. The battle system looks fairly interesting, not a typical FF battle system but different can be good. So on all these points should I get it, and how can I figure out to use the map when I play thanks in advance. By the way I was thinking of picking up luigi's mansion for GC if this title is not worth it.

NNNNOOOOOO, seriously it is the worst wii game I have ever played the map is so bad its a wonder in bad map design and yes the graphics do look good but the combat isn't anywhere near as fun as it looks, and in fact it got so annoying I simply started running away from enemies altogether not that it mattered despite hardly ever leveling up I could still beat the final boss, the main challenge is getting from A to B in a series of lame party type game events, for all that is holy and true trust me when I say this is an awful abomination of a game and I only hope in time I'll be able to forget it completely.

I had a lot of fun with Crystal Bearers. It's true that the main map is awful. It's actually completely useless. There are signs around that will tell you which direction to head to get to nearby areas. However, if you're far away from wherever you need to go, the signs might not be enough. I had to check a walkthrough a few times when I played the game.

One thing you should know about Crystal Bearers is that it isn't an RPG, and it isn't a typical Final Fantasy game. You can level up, but it's not a very important part of the game. It's more of an action/adventure game, like Zelda (except without any dungeons or puzzles). If you're looking for a typical FF game or an RPG, don't get this game.

The map was a non issue, like Reala said you're just going from point A to B and the areas are very linear. You'd have to be pretty hopeless at video games to get lost playing Crystal Bearers. As for the combat you don't have melee attacks, which seems to frustrate a lot of gamers. You can only pick up enemies/objects and toss them around (like in Solatorobo). Also know that FFCCCB is a short game. You'll beat it in 15 or 20 hours depending on how into item crafting you want to get. So unless you love this game enough to playthrough it a few times you might not be getting your money's worth (depending on what you pay for it). I recommend renting it before buying it.

With more than six million copies sold worldwide since its release seven years ago, Super Smash Bros. Melee remains – easily — GameCube's best-selling title. The 3D fighter, a sequel to 1999's surprise hit Nintendo 64 project Super Smash Bros., packed in more characters, more stages and a seemingly endless supply of nostalgic trophies and collectibles to become one of the system's most beloved efforts. There was so much content squeezed into Melee, in fact, that the multiplayer fighter kept devoted fans entertained not just for months, but years. Yet, compared to the Whopper that is Super Smash Bros Brawl, a Wii game dripping with different play modes, characters, stages and online components, Melee has been reduced to a plain old hamburger. (And by the way, we're hungry.)

Hungry, that is, for some epic offline and online multiplayer fights, and thankfully Brawl – like its predecessors – satisfies. If you want numbers, we've got them. Nintendo's latest fighter features 35 mascots – a figure up from 12 in the original and 26 in Melee. It also includes more than 40 different levels, each a throwback to classic franchise stages, both from Nintendo and also from the likes of SEGA and Konami, but we'll get to that. Point is, it's a much meatier package — we honestly don't know why we can't seem to break from our hamburger analogies – and we haven't even started in on the customization options, online support, and more.
