They didn't say they were ending VC support entirely; all they said was that their focus had shifted. all they said 'NO' to was an Internet Channel and Nintendo Channel update for NA.

Back when these machines were available at my local arcade(s), these were the songs that I liked to play. When earlier songs (Boom Boom Dollar, Paranoia Rebirth, etc.) showed up in later mixes, I'd still play them as part of my normal routine.

3rd Mix v.Korea2: Bu Dam, Boom Boom Dollar (K.O.G.G3 mix), Follow the Sun (90 in the shade mix), Butterfly (Upswing mix), Paranoia Rebirth, Afronova, Turn Me On (Heavenly mix), Captain Jack (Grandale remix), Dam Dariram
5th Mix: Can't Stop Fallin' in Love (speed mix), Healing Vision, Never Ending Story, Orion.78 (AMeuro mix), Pink Dinosaur
6th Mix/DDRMAX: Exotic Ethnic, Freckles (Sobakasu), My Sweet Darlin', Healing Vision (Angelic Mix), Cow Girl, Justify My Love, and Candy (star) if it was unlocked
7th Mix/MAX2: Abyss, Break Down, Burning Heat (3 option mix), Ever Snow, Tsugaru
8th Mix/EXTREME: Cartoon Heroes (speedy mix), Irresistiblement, Love Shine, Frozen Ray, Mahou no Tobira, A, Sakura, V, Sync, Stoic, Colors

I also used to play In The Groove when it was in the arcade I used to frequent... there were more than a few of us who would bring in our own USB sticks and we'd all play one another's songs (the best was when one of my friends who worked there busted out with Kyle's Mom is a Big Fat B*tch, it was so wrong :D). It was so much fun... but then they got rid of the ITG machine and put in a second DDR EXTREME one. Boo. :(

I'm'onna go with Bowser's Inside Story first, because I wanted to wait for some reviews to pop up about the KH game. I'm kinda worried that I'll have needed to play the other KH games in order to fully understand what's going on in the new one. :/

To all Scribble-skeptics (yes, I just referred to you as a Scribble-skeptic), Drawn to Life was a very first effort on the DS, and targeted at little kids. The sequel looks to be much improved, and 5TH Cell has stated that they feel Scribblenauts is a much more ambitious and great concept/game than anything they've done before. There are three things you can't deny about Scribblenauts: 1) A lot of effort was poured into making this game, six months of just planning, in fact. 2) 5TH Cell has more experience with the DS and what it can do now than ever before. 3.) People have played, and love it.

(a) lol, Scribble-skeptic :)

hahaha, i've seen those videos before... that dude doing the edits is hilarious. Episode 5: The NaQed Now is my favorite. :3 anyway...

@Turbo Genesis 64: I do agree that Spock's Brain was absolute crap (and if we're bringing up absolute wtfery at its finest, why not bring up The Savage Curtain? lol, Abraham Lincoln), but Season 3 had some good episodes, and Plato's Stepchildren wasn't the worst by far. :3

@Warioswoods: five years ago, I would have agreed with you, but my husband got me watching DS9 a couple years ago and it is really the better series IMO. TNG (and Voyager, kinda) is more in the style of TOS in terms of exploration and one-shot encounters with alien species, but DS9 deals more with what happens to a region of space after the exploration has (mostly) already happened and everyone's settling in to live with what's going on in that one area... DS9 really fleshed out some of the existing Trek species and gave them life beyond their few encounters with the Starship Enterprise, and I really love it for that.

yes, TNG was groundbreaking, but DS9 was the refinement (if not perfection in some episodes?) afterward. :3

i'm sorry, i don't understand your reply...? The people who worked on Yoshi's Story worked hard to get that 2.5D look, whereas that's not what the creators of Okami were going for at all visually. you're comparing two games with two completely different visual styles in an attempt to call the one on the current-gen system graphically inferior, which makes no sense.

Okami was probably the worst game to 'observe' being 'flat', though, considering they worked very hard to get that flat, watercolor-on-canvas look (i'm pretty sure there's some extras on the game after you've beaten it where they show concept art with a 3D version of Ammy with fur and all... it wasn't that great to be honest). you would have been better off choosing a different game to 'observe'. :)

You know, ever since you posted this I started wondering about those L & R buttons. I don't think I ever use mine except to snap photos. I guess I've not come across any games that needed it? :)

The L/R buttons get some use in TWEWY (switching between sub/main pins?), and I know they get use in SMT: Devil Survivor (checking stats during battle), LoZ: Phantom Hourglass (using held item?), and Moon (firing)... there's probably more games that use the L button as something important as well, though there are games where you can use the stylus or a different button instead (the Ace Attorney series, Star Fox Command, etc.). :3
