@SSBbrawler08: whoa, I'm not saying I didn't like the game, I'm saying I didn't like those two new powerups. I like the graphics update, I like the addition of the ground pound and stuff, I liked the levels and the gameplay just fine. The only major unignorable that I did not like (the powerups can be ignored or avoided) was the stage select map. I would've preferred something more visually flat, like the stage select maps in SMB3... otherwise, it was a good game and I had fun/will have fun later playing it.

@CowLaunch: According to GameFAQs and Gamespot, if you press L and R at the 'select a file' screen and keep them pressed while you choose one of your saved games with A, you'll play the game as Luigi instead of Mario. I did not know this. I should try it later. :3

I didn't feel the giant mushroom really added much to the game, but nor did I feel it really detracted anything from it either(although I hate it Mario Kart, but that's another discussion).

I didn't really like the giant mushroom either, nor did I like the koopa shell thingie. I never really used either. the mini shroom at least offered added challenge (and having to beat the castle with it to get to some worlds was a good idea too), but as for going big, I liked the Super Paper Mario starman (and the way they went retro with it) more than I liked the giant mushroom in NSMB.

@edhe: oh, I forgot about Contact... thanks for reminding me. I traded it in after I was done with it. The references to LiveJournal were cute, but I just couldn't really get into the game. Maybe if I pick it up later I'll like it more.

MML/MM64 is nothing like the DS games... it's an action/adventure type game in a 3-D environment where combat doesn't involve any weird card systems or anything. It's way more fun than the Star Force series IMO. :)

It likely got its score because it did not improve on Legends at all even though it was released three years later. All it is was a port from PSX to N64 with some graphical tweaking and some missing music/sounds.

the Gamespot review sums up the problems between the versions. Even though MM64 came out three years after Legends, it was the same game only with a little bit of a graphics update and no other changes except for dull colors, muted voices, and missing music and/or sound effects in places. Though Capcom's official website promised updated/more dungeons, there was nothing extra added, so it's basically the same game (that's what I was referring to when I said that :)). Bottom line is that MM64 was only worth picking up if you'd never played Legends before.

Drawn to Life ('oh a new area... here, spend an hour designing all the platforms and stuff!' it got boring fast :()
Yoshi's Island DS (I love the original, but I didn't like what they did to it in this remake/sequel/whatever... with the other babies, it felt gimmicky)
Aquia (this game is so boring IMO D: )

I can see it becoming necessary to get enhanced play out of games in the future (kinda like the N64's Expansion Pak gave you enhanced graphics and such for certain games), and maybe being absolutely required for a couple of games, but as for it becoming a must-have piece of hardware in order to play future Wii releases... i dunno about that. not without them selling it bundled in with said releases. :)

Last year, though, they were discussing whether or not future Wiimotes will have the M+ functionality built in, so you never know. ::shrug::

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;

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 :)
