"I'm a little curious to know why Nintendo Life is reporting on illegal products." ~~~ Product... how is a .IPS patch an illegal product? Is AGTP asking you to pay them MONEY for that .IPS patch? Jeezus H. Crispy Christ... go wage a moral crusader war against VHS tapes for being able to record movies, or something. If you don't like fan-translated games, don't play them. Simple as that. But don't go around crucifying everyone else who appreciates the fan-translation community and what they do for us.

"My life would surely be poorer had I not played and understood "Seiken Desentsu 3." <~~~ Ditto. And Tales of Phantasia, and Teranigma, and Star Ocean, and Rudora no Hihou, and Gunman's Proof and every other fan-translation I've had the great fortune of being able to play. You expect these games to make it onto the Virtual Console with no impetus? We're just supposed to be good little boys n' girls and wait for Santie Claws to answer our letters? Good luck waiting... SD3 still isn't on the Virtual Console and there hasn't been a ~good~ Mana game in ages.

Actually, I'd put more stock in a company like Wayforward (the guys behind Ducktales Remastered) buying the rights like they did for the Ducktales characters and doing their own Mana game. Hell, they could do a wacky crossover between Chrono Trigger and SoM and have some storyline where the characters of SoM get sent to the CT world somehow (maybe Thanatos casts a spell on the trio and sends them through a dimensional vortex?) and then the SoM cast have to learn how to battle in a Menu-based RPG, and later the CT gang have to go back and help fight Thanatos and they get to learn how to fight in a Real Time Action RPG.

Case in point... Tales of Phantasia got a fan-translation... and later it got a re-release on the GBA... do you think that the company looked at the fan trans and thought "Hmm, well, we may as well not bother, since they've already got a translation of it for SNES / SFC." ~~ Everyone I knew in the online J-Rock communities had downloaded mp3s of Dir en grey's album, Withering to Death (and their other stuff prior to it), way before it was even announced (back on the old Free-Will America website / forums) that it was getting a U.S. re-release through Warcon. Warcon didn't think "Oh, well since they've already go MP3s, we may as well not even bother." ~ and how many times has something we ~already~ got in the U.S. got a re-release? Chrono Trigger DS re-release... Secret of Mana for iPhone.

Ugh... @Tempura ~ yet another uppity snoot. Blah blah blah, how dare those people fan translate this game. Why don't you just import the game and play it in Japanese? Yeesh... you sound like every snobby elitist weeaboo on Fukktasu / Batsu who complains about fans who download J-Rock albums. SD3 wouldn't have had a fan following in the states without fan-translation. Dir en grey wouldn't have had a fan following in the states without someone having first shared their music on the net. And do you really think the alternative is better? Saying that "well, if we just leave it alone, eventually the companies might re-release it stateside" is as stupid as thinking that Dir en grey would have gotten U.S. releases of their albums if nobody had ever downloaded their music and increased their western visibility.

@Big_L91

"Just think tho if we can stream the desktop to the touch screen and use the gamepad as a controller we could play pc games on the gamepad!!!!"

If any group of custom controller adapter manufacturers could make that happen, it would probably be Mayflash. I mean, I'd like to see them try (though I'd imagine that bit about getting the PC video content cloned to the Gamepad's LCD would be the hardest part). Getting the Wii U Pro controller to work as a Direct Input usb Human Interface Device is cool enough, for now.

Weebz commented on Iwata Tells Shareholders "Core Gamers Will Acc...:

Call me a jerk, call me "crippled by nostalgia," but I haven't owned a console since my SNES suddenly ceased to function properly and didn't need to upon discovering the wonderful world of emulation way back in 2000. Through it I relived classics, as well as experienced titles that we should have gotten in the first place such as Seiken Densetsu 3, which __still__ has not been brought to the Virtual Console, yet Pulseman, Gleylancer and Sin and Punishment were?

I don't know what the term "core" gamer means, all I know is I like games that are simplistic, have decent mechanics and are fun, and to me all those Run n' Jump sidescrollers, shmups, and overhead view action RPGs are fun. I have a great set up with a Mayflash Wii Classic Controller adapter and two flatties (and two Buffalo USB SFC turbo pads) with Svideo from the comp cloned out to my TV, and a machine that runs atleast up to PSX games smoothly. So who needs you, Virtual Console? You don't even have Capcom's Ducktales, Chip n' Dale Rescue Rangers, or even Little Nemo and you probably never will... but I can sure play them just fine and quite close to how I remember them, without you.

The Wii U controller looks Rii-f*cking-diculous, but when I first saw it I got my hopes up that maybe Nintendo was going to ditch the strictly-home-based console and basically make a big DS that would double as both a portable on-the-go system and a stay-at-home system by way of transmitting the image to a TV by wireless video broadcaster (such things do exist, I just saw such a thing on my last visit to Fry's Electronics). But no, the Wii U controller apparently becomes useless after being taken so many feet away from the main console... So much potential, Nintendo. Why?
