i'm pretty sure i read somewhere that light gun/zapper games would be a problem for people using non-CRT tvs, iirc... something about screen/pixel refreshing and the way the zapper detects hits? In order for them to work properly for their entire userbase, Ninty would have to adapt the games for the VC using the wiimote or some kind of 'new' zapper peripheral as input.
it sure would be fun to play Duck Hunt again, though... :3

as percent already said, here's the review by Corbie, and there's also the first impressions thread where some people who've played it have posted already. No need for a second thread on the forums about it. :3

with no real search function for the forums and with duplicate threads popping up all over the place, people are probably trying to keep discussion of certain things in one big thread so we can all get the most out of talking to each other about the same topic in them. it's no big deal except that 'the official blah-blah-blah topic' may also read as 'the officially Nintendo Life sanctioned blah-blah-blah topic', which isn't always true, lol. :3

@V8: i rented it when it was new and played the ever-loving heck out of it. you play as Marina, the robotic maid of Professor Theo. He's kidnapped by the Evil Empire, and you've got to save him. It's a platformer where you run around grabbing, shaking, and/or throwing things around. The story is all right, but there's a twist toward the end that made things more interesting (IMO, anyway). :3

Partners in Time was weaker than BIS IMO, but only because you can't skip the tutorials in that game (Stuffwell kinda got on my nerves, but whatev'). You only use the touchscreen like once in the entire game, but that I didn't mind (just go in expecting to play using the buttons the entire time), and story-wise it was fine.
