@Grumblevolcano
This talk about Smash Bros. and how it justifies remaking or translating the games... I think they should just do it so people who cannot read Japanese can play the original games. Release the lot in one go. I don't think Smash Bros. justifies it really, or at least not alone. Instead, the new-found popularity of FE does.

ZenTurtle commented on An Impressive 1.79 Million Players Have Crosse...:

I don't like great games, I like games that I like. Fire Emblem Awakening is both! It's so playable on the go! Although I perhaps like classic FE a little bit better (4-8 and New Mystery of the Emblem are brilliant 2D Strategy), only a little bit! I always come back to this game... Yes, it does have flaws, in that strategy is not always, ahem, needed. But it's simply fun! I know they are going to iron out at least some of the less polished aspects of Awakening in FE 'If', so here's to a bright future for Fire Emblem! Although the one thing that they have not fixed which I am not happy about is the fact there are 2D sprites on 3D environments! I would really like to see high quality 3D representations of the characters! They could be opulent and lavish so we can identify who they are meant to be! Anyway...

ZenTurtle commented on Tappingo 2 Close to European Release:

I really enjoyed the first Tappingo game. I will probably be getting this as it is still really good value! Can anyone tell me if there is a level editor, or if there are plans for one? That would really improve the game.

ZenTurtle commented on ​Famitsu Reveals Some Fresh Details on Fire ...:

They should have a really difficult option as well, as in Thracia 776 style difficulty. If they are going to cater to newcomers (which I am all for), they should also cater to experienced players. By which I mean a balanced difficulty mode, not like the one in FE Awakening.

Great little game although people should not make this their first experience of the series. I recommend the original Pullblox (Pushmo) as it's great value and has many fun and challenging levels. And a brilliant level creation tool as icing on the cake.

@Grumblevolcano
DSi-enhanced games are region locked if played on a DSi, so no online features (which are useless now): the console has a tantrum when you try to play it. However, you can play the game on any original DS/DS lite with no problems. Which is probably what you want to do.
Edit: I should also point out that anything region-locked newer than the DSi will also reject the game.

@thedevilsjester
Most thing in museums have educational value and historical significance. Perhaps the SNES development systems have historical significance in the video game world. However, this has a sticker saying 'Microprose', which really does not add to said value. So for me it is overpriced and of less importance than is claimed.

I think their best bet for rebooting Metroid is another 2D entry, something entirely fresh though. I hope it will continue the good work of Metroid Fusion, a game which is the most playable of the 2D games in my opinion.

I want to play DS games on the go, digital. Can I? No, not unless I live in Japan, and want to play just a single game, Advance Wars. So... Why not release the entire library? Are there technical limitations? No, they are ROMS which can be booted like DS cartridges! So... Nintendo are clearly just a bit stubborn, or at least that is how I see it.

@AlbionHero
Radiant Dawn was certainly not the most 'mature' (whatever that might mean) game in the series, but FE Awakening was certainly more light hearted. In terms of the rest of the series, the Super Famicom games were the most 'mature', that is true. To be honest, the age ratings are sometimes meaningless when it comes to story for example, and it is looking like FE 'If' will be better than FE Awakening in that respect.

ZenTurtle commented on Fire Emblem If Box Art Confirms amiibo Support...:

I'm glad it's got a higher age rating. As much as I liked FE Awakening, it felt a little bit restrained in story and characters, since they were appealing to a wider audience, a younger demographic. This game (more specifically, the 'night' path) feels to me as though it is probably going to be a lot more like Radiant Dawn, which was not light-hearted by any means.

@joey302
Well, it is difficult to find a number of games for reasonable prices and it would be an opportunity to release games that never had English translations. It's also a matter of convenience, I prefer not to carry around a number of games as it is easy to lose a loose game cartridge.

I would love to have a Fire Emblem anthology, with all of the games up to Fire Emblem 10 (as well as Heroes of Light and Shadow), or at least individual releases of the non-English titles. Perhaps when the timer counts down to the 13th of March, there could be some sort of surprise?

Four Swords Adventures was a GameCube game entirely different to the GBA game. It had a full multiplayer story called Hylian Adventure and a multiplayer battle mode called Shadow Battle. Both involved connecting GBAs with friends. It's much better than the DSi remake of the GBA game, which was included with A Link to the Past remake. At any rate the Four Swords Anniversary Edition is not available on the eshop either, it being limited time.

Why on earth do videogame artists always feel the need to as revealing of the female body as possible? It's not needed, and it's rather sexist. Why can't they just be portrayed in outfits that aren't nearly so revealing, in armour that makes sense?
