Mischief Makers was a fun game, good choice... go for Goldeneye too, if you decide on the N64. And if you never had the chance to play Mega Man Legends for PSX, there's always Mega Man 64 (basically the same game). :)

Which games are you the most interested in, SonicMaster? that could help you to narrow down your choices (e.g. which system has the most games available that you want that aren't yet/will never be released for VC). :3

I'm in NA:
Guitar Hero III is in black and white (white disc, black lettering/design)
Smackdown vs. Raw 2009 is in black (the lettering is all silver from the disc itself)
Super Mario Galaxy is in navy and red
Okami is purple with dark purple accents/lettering
Lego Star Wars is in light blue and white (white lettering)
Twilight Princess is in gold and white (gold seems to be common among Zelda games; my copy of Windwaker is also gold)

I don't remember what the games I traded in (Budokai II, Wii Play, Lego Batman) looked like off the top of my head, and I can't find my copy of Wii Sports for some reason. D: also, I don't know about 'wii blue' or anything, but the blue of my copy of Lego Star Wars is more of a robin's egg blue than the darker true blue shown in the pics above.

edit: hey, cool, look what I found! someone's scanned a whole bunch of NTSC-U/PAL discs and put the images up on the web. google is awesome. o_O;

re: Shining in the Darkness -- according to GameFAQs you can name your own character, but you start off as a knight, and the two others who start with you are a cleric and a magic user, and it looks like you've only got the three characters for the entire game. ouch.

Be careful, oh feathered one... ask and ye may very well receive. ;)

Also, Stuffgamer1, that kind of thing is pretty common among 'free' online games -- if you want awesome stuff or customizeable extras, you'll have to pay for them. It goes with the territory.

Considering the goddesses are all associated with vivid colors (red, blue, green), and the mystery girl is none of those colors, I doubt it.

also, compare this image (a closeup of the LttP Master Sword) with the E3 poster. I'd forgotten that version of the MS was different from the 3D Zelda games, and the lines coming down from the jewel-thing on the sword struck me as very similar to the ones coming down from the jewel on her chest, especially because her dress is about the same color as the shading on the sword in that image.

@longtimegamer: sorry, i should've specified that I'm talking about the US version, which is on Fox. I love the British version of Kitchen Nightmares (the American version has waaaaaaay too much hyped-up drama and BS to be honest), and The F Word is probably his most interesting show IMO, considering we get to see him largely not screaming profanities at people for a change :)

The game is borderline softcore porn, and it's got some T&A shots that are censor-barred out (apparently by the game itself; he mentions there is a code to input in order to uncensor it, but he didn't do that for the video)... there's some sexual situations, but nothing graphic, and of course he's cussing all throughout the video, but that's about it. It's up to you if you want to risk your parents walking in on you watching it. :P

That's Mario Kart, though... perhaps this game is looking to be even more awesome (and will use more of the Wii's resources)? We don't know exactly how taxing Mario Kart is on the Wii in comparison to Spyborgs, and if they want to focus more on a badass game with no online multiplayer instead of a good game with barely decent online multiplayer, good for them.

I've seen funnier AVGN videos (the Spiderman one is a classic), but that game was pretty freaking bad, lol.

on a slightly related note, I never knew Mario is Missing came out for NES as well as SNES. That game was so boring DDDD:

Other PopCap games I've played the heck outta are Typer Shark (i like typing games, and that's a good one) and Rocket Mania (i think i played that one for like a week straight, it was so much fun).

I've cheated (via gameshark and action replay) my way through RPGs before, mainly because I'm playing for the story. I see no problem with doing that (cheating for personal use, just to get through a game you like quicker than normal). Platformers and action/adventure games, there's no real point IMO unless the cheats are fun.

Man, I remember back in the days of the NES Game Genie, there was this cheat for SMB3 where you could swim through the air or walk through the air or something; that was my favorite for a long time. :)

It can be annoying to do it that way, though, because if you want to play anything else afterward you have to wait for the Wii to reload and all that... that's why I didn't suggest just shutting it (the Wii) off after saving your game in the first place. :3
