Oh yeah, I forgot about Spring Mario. He sucks.

Also, the purple coin levels that are on rails (so to speak) are agonizing with Luigi's slippery soles. Miss a #@$#@%@#$ coin and the whole level is ruined. Ruined I tells ya!

you aren't kidding. it's a good thing I love the heck outta that song they use for those levels/stars, though... it's one of my favorites on the entire OST. :3

and Spring Mario/Luigi... i got alllllll the way up onto the top of that beach level with the purple coins with that freaking thing, I was bouncing around the part with the little hills around the small pool of water, and I thought to myself, 'no, i'll just keep the spring suit on so that I don't have to go back and get it again to get to the very top'... and then the next freaking coin I got, I misjudged my spring and ended up springing my way out into the open air. definitely a very FML moment for me. :(

also, @Adam: i know the bee suit was reused for the purple coin star in the beach galaxy that's a giant circle (there's a couple of races held there, and the prankster comet gives you a cosmic mario/luigi race), there was another galaxy where you had to use either the bee suit or the ghost suit to get through an obstacle course, and I think there was a one-star galaxy that used it, too.

What was the worst for me was the first time I got that star to appear as Mario... I hadn't realized that it appeared all the way back at the beginning. I should've known, of course, but I was all the way back in the corner farthest away from the start platform and I hadn't bothered to save myself a path back to the beginning via green tiles. D:

@BellGoRiiing: iTunes is the easiest to use, IMO... i believe it's somewhere in 'preferences' where you can set the file quality you want converted AAC-format files to be created at. Once that's set to whatever you like, highlight in your library what files you want converted, right-click, and 'convert to AAC' is what you want. depending on how many files you're converting at once, it may take a while.

It took me a week of off-and-on play to get all the stars. It was a lot of fun, and the soundtrack is amazing, but (like Mario 64) it's going to be a while before I'm in the mood to play through it all over again. Some of those stars (Luigi's Purple Coins, anyone?!) were just freaking painful to get. XP

There were more than a couple of times when I first played through Clock Tower that I got surprised by something, lol (before I got sick of dying outright and looked up a guide to get through it with). i know, it's an SNES game, the graphics aren't terribly realistic or anything, but it was definitely a creepy game for its time.

Well I only have the original, so I think the DSi would be worth it. I was actually planning to get a DSlite, but they realeased the DSi so quickly. LOL

ah, then you got lucky -- there are people complaining that they just upgraded to the Lite and then they went and released the DSi a couple months later, lol. if you were going to upgrade anyway, then go for the DSi. :)

if you're still on the fence, i'd say you can get by without it until they start releasing better DSiware games and some games with must-have DSi content. the better sound and larger screens are really nice, but the camera is more of a toy than an actual tool, in practice.

I would pay cash monies for an official Dreamcast emulator. Build it into the disk channel, since DC downloads wouldn't be feasible on Wii; I would love to play my Dreamcast games by popping the old GDROM into my Wii.

as I understand it, the GDROM format is CD-based, and the Wii can't read CDs. you can fool a CD player if you're careful, but can a DVD drive be upgraded somehow to be able to read that format?

SMK: It's been too long since I've played it. The only one I know for absolute sure that I despise is Choco Island 2; i hated that one back when I was younger and I hate it now in MKDS! DDD:

MK64: I love Toad's Turnpike and Banshee Boardwalk ... hell, i love all of the MK64 tracks because I played it so much when I was younger. Wario Stadium was good because you had the chance to jump that wall and blow everyone else away... it wouldn't work half the time, so there was still a chance you'd be able to win the normal way if someone was attempting to cheat that way, hahaha.

MKDS, the Waluigi Pinball and Airship Fortress tracks are really great. I would have to say the only one I'm not terribly thrilled with is the Luigi's Mansion track, mainly because of that swamp you get slowed down in. Tick-Tock Clock is also interesting; the gears can easily knock you out of your racing groove if you're not careful.

did you just now attempt to connect it to the DSi Shop? if so, everyone has to get that before you can go on the internet with it. don't really know what it does, but you can't open the DSi Shop and download the Internet Browser there without getting the update first.

i am imagining this hideous amalgamation with Zelda characters zooming about a race track in go-kart-type vehicles. they're holding baseball bats, tennis racquets, golf clubs, ping-pong paddles, or they have boxing gloves, and you can collect traditional items as well (thus, the 'super' part of the name), and as you go around the track the idea is to beat the crap out of your opponents as you pass them.

actually, now that i have put the description down in words... i actually wouldn't mind giving that a try. just to say i played it, of course. :P

firmware by the way is the anser to never haveing to upgrade to a new systime ever again :D becuse internet brought firmware to the 21st centuary :D

the Wii hardware, though, is going to fall behind as the firmware gradually evolves and adapts to handle better graphics, music quality, more realistic movements/textures, sprites, and other gradual improvements made via video games. updateable firmware is a great feature of the system and has the potential to extend its lifespan, but firmware is not hardware, and once the hardware gets pushed to its limit, we will have to upgrade again.
