that's pretty weird, O_B, considering I could probably walk into the GameStop near where I live and find a copy for $5 (or whatever it was i saw it priced at last; maybe it was $9?). There was an absolute glut of PW games available for a long time because people apparently did not see the replay value and traded it in after finishing it. people trying to sell it for $90-something (yeah, i saw that crazy Amazon price too) when it can be found on eBay for less than half that price are either nuts or hoping to bag some uninformed collector with more money than they know what to do with. :/

@Pegasus: actually, there's quite a few products out now that limit how loud they go while headphones are plugged in -- I've had two MP3 players and a MiniDisc player that all shared that function. It's all about protecting your ears. :) I do like that the DSi has pretty good sound if I just want to listen to some tunes without headphones, though.

is Ear Muffs a brand name, or are you referring to the kind that go over the entire ear? Personally, I prefer those, because ear bud types kinda make my ears sore after a while, but the over-the-entire-ear kind squish my glasses to my head, which also hurts (but only if listening for a long time at one go). And then the type that hang off of your ears, the only pair of those I had pinched the tops of my ears, which hurt too. I'm screwed no matter which type I wear. :P

@irken: it's not like i wasn't solving them myself, after all... lol, i should post my worked-out solutions someplace for people struggling through. :P

@Adam: you realize you won't get promoted [read: unlock higher levels in Factory mode] unless you get through higher ranks in R&D mode, right? the higher your promotion you play at, the easier it is to earn more money. That's why I went through all that to perfect everything... i wanted that last promotion. :3

@irken: in order to perfect the last couple ranks in Boxlife, I started copying the puzzles down and solving them on paper so that I could solve them without being penalized... I noticed that only rarely would I see the same puzzle twice even through multiple replays at the higher levels (i'd have to play through again if i got a penalty on accident). Pictobits, though, I started getting bored playing through the same levels for coins (there's a couple that are more lucrative than others :3).

Boxlife is fun, but I haven't bought MFC yet so I don't know how it stacks up directly against it. I will say that Boxlife is easier if you play it regularly, but if you set it aside for a few days and go back to it (e.g. you haven't kept practicing) it's suddenly harder for a little while until you're back into it. I really like Boxlife, myself, but i can see how it might become boring to others.

re: irken004's suggestion... Boxlife versus Pictobits, though... Pictobits kinda disappointed me in that the levels aren't randomized. you don't start a level and eagerly await to see what it'll do this time; every play-through is the same, so once you've got a strategy in mind, that's it. it's got plenty of levels and the dark stages too, but without that random element, some of the potential challenge is missing. Pictobits definitely gets much love for the retro look, feel, and sound elements, though -- and the buying music to listen to is fun. In Boxlife's R&D mode, the puzzles are randomized (except for the first puzzle in each rank, which generally introduces a new pattern to cut out boxes), and then Factory mode is random re: where bombs appear and how the paper is shaped and such (i think re: the paper shaping) as it comes down the line. The look for Boxlife is cute and quirky, too, but as you earn 'money' you'll get upgrades for your little home area automatically -- there is no picking and choosing what to buy with your dough.

agreeing with Swiket.

for more specific differences between the two games, The Lost Levels introduced poison mushrooms (touching them is like touching an enemy; big Mario becomes little Mario, and little Mario is killed... and i'm pretty sure Fire Mario goes straight to little Mario too), the different physics between the Bros. (Luigi jumps higher than Mario but can't stop on a dime anymore), and wind effects that will blow you off a platform or keep you from jumping farther (and sometimes they're just brutal about it, too). To help you out, The Lost Levels allows you to automatically continue from the beginning of the last level you were on (if you die on 6-3, for example, you'll restart on 6-1), unlike SMB where you had to hold down a couple of buttons or something for that to happen, and there's more levels (1-8 or 9, plus A-D iirc) to play, too... if you can make it to them, lol.

seriously, it's a hard game. if you're looking for something to breeze through when you have ten minutes to kill or something, The Lost Levels is not the game you want. :3

ooo, good idea!

Least favorite cases:
3-4 and 3-5 because so many awful things were brought to light... ugh. it's good to know these things happened so that the proper people get their just desserts, of course, and the twists and turns were really good (very well-crafted, of course), and the first day of investigation (and what happened at the very end of the night before, to be honest) had me laughing so hard... but just... ugh. y'know?

actually, i would go so far as to say the entire third game, I didn't like. It wasn't on a gameplay standpoint, and it wasn't because the plot was lacking or anything... it was just because of the ugly things that came out of that game. :/

Favorite cases:
1-2 (lawyer, defend thyself :P)
2-1 (i liked how they worked it into a tutorial, lol :3)
2-2 (i remember how excited I was to have figured out the incriminating detail in her testimony about the car)
2-4 (poetic justice and tears at the very end! ;D)
4-4 (it blew my freaking mind, man! :D :D :D)

i wasn't replying to you, dude, i was replying to the OP. The entire post is split between title and actual post area, so I thought 'They gave it an 8.9.
