@Edwin: if you can get to some of those parts, sure, but the gameplay was terrible -- the monsters' constant respawning was irritating as hell, the turtles couldn't freaking swim (despite being turtles, for crying out loud!), and once you lost Donatello, there went the fun. also, graphically it was nothing like the TV series i'd expected to see reflected in the game. i could never get past the part where you have to walk on the ropes between buildings (always died either during or soon afterward) and we both (because i had to share NES time with my little brother, lol) were constantly running out of ammo for the Turtle Van for whatever reason. i don't remember bothering with the original game but once after we got a copy of TMNT II: The Arcade Game, and after Turtles in Time there was no appeal whatsoever behind going back to that kind of frustration.

Be bitter all you want. I'll still love my game, and my action figures. Guess I'm not 'true' enough of a fan for you. shrug

i was directly responding to Edwin, who stated "This game is awesome. Any true Turtles fan knows this." take any issues with his terminology up with him, please. :)

(a) are you sure you're playing the correct notes for the songs? which one are you trying to play?
(b) are you in the right place for whatever you're trying to do to trigger? for example, you have to be standing on the log for the frogs to show up and react to your ocarina playing, and Epona won't come to you unless you're in Hyrule Field IIRC.
(c) what are you trying to do, exactly? you may have to complete some objective first before you can get another one to trigger.

gasp! say it ain't so, Chicken Brutus? i did not know we were on opposing sides here. D:

clearly, this calls for the both of us to take up residences opposite one another, where we will sit on our porches with our families, play banjo music, and sip moonshine. we will also fire upon one another's vehicles with rifles as they pass within range of said residences. it is the only way to resolve this issue!

Hmmm... after downloading AQUIA, I swore off the Art Style series, but you make this one sound a little more appealing than the others. TY and I'll look into it. But I still need better releases than the 'games' they're offering us so far...

I don't blame you for swearing off the AS games after Aquia (i think i've played it like twice since i bought it, it's so boring!), but Pictobits is really a lot of fun and well worth the five bucks.

He told me that the reason why (i dont believe him now) was GB GBC GBA games would have to basically be made to fit the screen cause of the difference of the Lite to the DSi saying the game would look stretched out & not looking like the Originals on the Ds Lite (thats all that he said) i laughed when i got home from work that night xD!

... wow. i would have been hard-pressed to not confront him about the Phoenix Wright games on the spot (which are basically GBA ports themselves and look just fine on both the DS Lite and the DSi)... not to mention that all DS games are displayed larger on the DSi with no real problems (not that I've noticed, anyway). it's one thing to say 'I'm sorry, but the President of NoA himself has said 'no' to that possibility when asked', but it's a jerk move entirely to come up with a flat-out lie like that.

whoa whoa whoa, wait a minute, SSBFan1999, your rant is completely off-base. here are two different articles that better explain things (the second article is the more informative of the two IMO, but they're both valid). it's not Microsoft and/or their fanbase that you need to be unleashing your anger upon, it's Nintendo themselves.

@Adam: here's him mentioning Earthbound at E3 2005. it was Excitebike, Earthbound, and Punch-Out!! that were mentioned together, and while both Excitebike and Punch-Out!!/Super Punch-Out!! have been released for VC, Earthbound has yet to be seen.

on that note, I found this article interesting... apparently there are some music similarities that could be hindering its VC release. hmm.

Star Trek started off pretty bad. If I had been by myself, I might have walked out halfway through, but fortunately the latter half of the movie is much more interesting in plot, and all the worst acting is in the beginning.

Star Trek was chock full of fanservice to the very end. The only part i didn't like outright was the Spock/Uhura thing they had going. AU or not, i just can't wrap my brainmeats around that impossibility. :/
