I wonder how they're gonna handle the story in the new Star Fox game if Miyamoto's on board? (He is on-board in some capacity, right?) No lie, I actually really dug Star Fox's story, especially in Assault and Command (well, some branches, at least). The original's story was neat, too, even if it could've used more fleshing out. Same with Star Fox 64. I'd hope they'd put some effort on that front. It doesn't need to be the focus of the game, but I'd certainly would like to know more about the characters and their world like I did in Command.

I found Muramasa on the Wii a little "off" control-wise. It was hard to get into. I liked it much more on the Vita.

But I have to ask: how can you enjoy Final Fight, yet dislike Streets of Rage 2?

Today's episode of Anime Abandon wasn't just surprisingly sobering, it was kind of what I needed right now to get myself out of the funk I usually have around this time of year, especially since it reminded me that I always get this way because it was when I was at my lonliest as a kid. School usually got out at the end of June, and that month would always be when tests and homework were heaviest, so I didn't get to spend as much time with what few friends I had. And no, I never hung out with friends during the summer. This would usually be around the time I'd indulge heaviest in video games and anime/TV, just so I could pretend I'm not lonely for a while....I don't want to get too heavy into this, but I can definitely relate to what he's saying near the end, annd shows like Video Girl Ai were usually how I'd cope with it. I know I have a lot of sef-confidence issues, and none of the advice he gave was new, but it really illustrated to me that my problems aren't just my problems, and that what he and other people have been saying isn't just some malarky from people who don't understand, but are instead hard fought lessons from people who have been through the same pain before, and they're just sharing how they got through it. In short, I showed me that its advice I really need to take to heart. At the very least it can't hurt to try...no more than I'm already hurting, at least...

Terranigma - I saved the trees (among other plants). Then I went north to Colorado, where the feathered friends were freed and the wind was woken. Now to hover over to new horizons on the hind of a harried hawk.

...well, actually it's a gull, but that didn't rhyme...

Exactly, that would change the meaning entirely. That said, I'm fairly certain he's just trying to get a rise out of people and doesn't actually have that opinion to begin with.

Haha I guess I should have worded it differently, I guess my main question is whether people use 2 or 4 fingers for the triggers.

That's kinda what I've gathered. I've known people who use that, and for some controllers, that's fine. But others, like the 360 controller, are too bulky and heavy to use that. I could never do it with the Wii U Gamepad, for instance...

Either that, or he actually wanted to sell it to someone who was (hopefully) going to play it. Even if it's rare, hardly anyone would spend the amount they charge on eBay to play CT on the Super Nintendo when there are about a half-dozen significantly cheaper options available.

Like any normal person: with my feet.

...planted firmly on the ground, and my hands on the controller, with my index fingers on or within reach of any shoulder and/or trigger buttons, and the thumbs doing their things on either the D-Pad or analopue sticks and face buittons.

I seriously doubt you'll get that many other serious answers. The controllers have been progressively evolving to fit naturally in the average person's hand since the mid 90's.

Breath of Fire 1 and 2, Golden Sun and Golden Sun: The Lost Age, and The Mega Man Battle Network games are your only choices, really. Well, Fire Emblem, too. I enjoyed the Breath of Fire games the most out of that lot, but none of them are great, IMO. EDIT: Forgot about Paper Mario and Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga. Get those.

The PS4 hasn't even reached half of its lifespan. You're entitled to an opinion, of course, but it is kind of unfair.

Half it's lifespan? The PS4's only been on the market for a year and a half. Forget unfair. That's utter bullcrap if I ever heard it.

U.N. Squadron - I suuuuuuuck at this game. Could not get past the first boss, and rarely even made it to him...

Mega Man 2 - Replaying on VC. Beat Metal Man and Flash Man. This isn't as tough as I remembered. It's still no cakewalk, though. Flashman's level kept me on my toes.

Blaster Master - Lost a continue, but I don't care. The VC save state had me in the middle of level 3, which I am NOT prepared for. I was going to restart, but I decided to see how far I'd get. Amazingly I made it to the boss before I lost my last life.

Streets of Rage - Made it to stage 5. I believe that's the farthest I've ever gotten solo. This game is much more fun than I remember. Still pretty sluggish, though.

Akumajo Special: Boku Dracula-Kun - Made it to stage 4. This game is tough, yet not too tough. Just right, if you will. Definitely feels more like Mega Man than Castlevania, though.

Terranigma - Progressed through four of the five towers. Having a good time so far. Definitely digging the little touches in the graphics and narrative.

I think jokes to an unanswered question thread are rude, personally, especially if it derails the topic.

Also, I have a feeling it's the "get all 100 coins" shine. That's always a tough one to get.

I was gonna ask the same thing, Tasuki. Only two sites I've been two are VC-Reviews and Racketboy (and Sega-16, but they're more specialized). The former doesn't exist anymore (not even the old forum, vc-forums.com), and the latter I'm not so sure about. It seems like a site that's long past its prime, so to speak...

Give it time. The Paper Mario U rumors have been pretty hyped, so who knows. Maybe we'll get one, this year.

We've gotten complex "New Paper Mario" rumors since Sticker Star came out. While I wouldn't count it out, especially since of course Nintendo would be thinking of a new Paper Mario game, but I wouldn't say rumors mean it's anymore likely than it already is...

@iKhan Gran Turismo 6 Oh wait...

Definitely the Batman games. Especially Asylum since that's not on the Wii U.

Tales of Graces f, Ni no Kuni, and Valkyria Chronicles are the only RPGs I can recommend at the moment (though I think I'm forgetting an important one?EDIT: Disgaea 4!). Maybe Eternal Sonata and Star Ocean: The Last Hope International, too

Puppeteer, Sly Cooper Collection, Sly 4: Thieves in Time, Jak & Daxter Collection, Ratchet & Clank Collection, Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction, Ratchet & Clank: A Crack in Time, Ratchet & Clank: Into the Nexus, Prince of Persia Collection, Shadow of Colossus & ICO, and one other one I forgot would be good platformers to try out. Plus a ton of PSN games that I don't have time to write down.

Okami HD and 3D Dot Game Heroes are must-plays.

That's all I got at the moment, but there's definitely more.

Nintendo games don't go down in price to get more gamers to buy games they think will be good day one to make their sales (and profits) look really big.

Not to say it works, though. The lack of price drops means that people who are on the fence and not convinced have a much harder time getting invested, and heightens the barrier to entry for people who are not yet invested in their games and platforms. It really only hurts themselves. However, I don't know if Nintendo actually is the one doing this, or if the retailers themselves are the ones keeping the prices up. Because once a game's in a store, they can sell it for however much they want...
