I got my first GameBoy when I was 4, and the only games I had were Super Mario Land 2 and Game & Watch. We also had a SNES with Super Mario Kart. Later on I got Pokémon Red for the GameBoy and a Nintendo 64 with Super Mario 64 and Mario Kart 64. And from there on out it was only Mario and Pokémon. Then about two years ago I became interested in other IPs. I finally got MPT, and must admit that even though I haven't been playing more than 3 hours, I am in love with the game! It manages to creep me out a little with the sudden income of enemies, and the gameplay feels very right. It is the perfect balance between fun and exciting. I am always wary of what might be around the next corner. I do get quite tense when I play, so I try to not play for more than an hour in one sitting. A wonderful game so far, and for a person who never enjoyed other FPS games I can recommend it to Nintendo fans who'd like to try a more exciting puzzle solving game.

Currently remaking Super Mario Land 2 in Mario Maker 2.

I can see making this game work with the Wii Remote, and even make it Wii compatible so more can use it, assuming the original Wii can use the eShop. But I can not at all understand why it was made to require the remote. This wasn't originally a game for the Wii, and there's no reason to expect to have to use the remote. How much work could it possibly be to let customers choose which controller to use? The pro controller and the pad both have two sticks, make one do movement and the other do aiming/looking around. Done.

@carl5000 I'd think the old games use the engine for the newest one, Corruption. And that game didn't have a Classic Controller or GC controller support. I'd also say that throwing in new control set can be too much work for a cash-in, and even then you couldn't play Prime 3 without Wiimote+Nunchuk.

The ports of Prime 1 and 2 were under the label of "New Play Control" - the Wiimote. That was the main point of porting them over to Wii in the first place. You could've found the originals preowned and play them on a Wii with a GC controller (I did).

Only in Japan, outside there the only way to get the Wii ports were via Metroid Prime Trilogy.

Do we get Club Nintendo points for this? It hasn't shown up on my Club Nintendo and I bought mine the day after it came on Eshop.

Nope, Galaxy 2 was the only one of the Wii games to get it as it hit before the cut off date.

I would have gotten it if I didn't already have the trilogy. I, like many other people, have the GameCube games and Corruption. Even at the sexy price of $10, I already had the games (and I haven't beaten them) so getting them again would be redundant.

I'll even hold off on getting Majora's Mask 3D because I recently beat Majora's Mask on the Wii Virtual Console. I look forward to it, but since it's still fresh in my head and there's no way they changed THAT much...I probably won't get MM for a few more months.

I own a PS1, GBA, GBA SP, Wii (GCN), 360, 3DS, PC (Laptop), Wii U, and PS4.
I used to own a GBC, PS2, and DS Lite

I just attached a 500 GB external pocket hard disc to my Wii U and I dowload all the games and stuff there

You have no idea what you are talking about go and check Majora's Mask 3D I've played the original back in the 2000's and now I am playing the 3DS remake and the improvement is overall outstanding.

Anybody know where the Super Missile is on Metroid Prime? I know its in the Observartory room,but somehow it was never there when I first entered the room. Now I can't open the door that leads to the Quarantine Cave,is it somewhere else?

Quick question. Should I not be using a USB flash drive to store data? How long do those things usually last? Mine's lasted me about 3 or 4 years now. But I don't want to lose all of my DLC and what not.

Flash drives aren't recommended because they have a relatively low read-write limit compared with a hard disk if you're using it for similar applications. I wouldn't worry so much about losing what's there as not being able to update it. If you're really concerned you can always get another one to use as a backup device and do a regular copy of games you're currently playing.

@Sean_Aaron Ah okay, thanks! Now I just have to find an HDD that isn't super expensive. I'm not looking for a terabyte or anything. 32 gb will do.

I doubt you will find one that small. The smallest you may find is a 256gb. Still you shouldn't have to pay more then 30 to 50$ for almost any kind of size for the right brand.

I've seen ones as small as 60GB on Amazon for around $25.

That's a terrible price:GB ratio.
You can get a 120GB for under $30, or 500GB for about $10 more that that.
Even then, I wouldn't trust a budget brand for my data; gaming or otherwise. It sucks losing save data and having to redownload 10s of GBs worth of files. Go with reputable brands like Toshiba, Seagate, or Western Digital.

Eventually you will want to store other digital things. Whether it be videos, pictures, or games. You'll need a hard drive to store them on. Would you rather save $5 now, and lose money later, or spend a bit more now and future-proof yourself?

I just use an old 128GB laptop hardrive I kinda... found. My brother used to fix computers, it came from one of the broken-beyond-hope computers no one ever came to reclaim.

I just had to buy a case/adaptor to use it as an external hardrive.

It did give me problems once though, but it was mostly because my first (super cheap) adaptor broke and I tried to fix it myself and ended up corrupting all my data.

Thankfully the Metroid Prime Trilogy was on the wiiu itself...

I was thinking about getting this. Is it an exact replica of the wii version?

Thanks for the info. I didn't know if the controls were done with the wii remote or gamepad.
