He still says 'kick kick kick high kick-toe, kick kick kick' when you tap him on-beat even if you don't have the ball, so the more in the habit you get tapping him on the beat, the better prepared you'll be to keep the ball in the air. Space Soccer is a royal pain in the butt, i'll give you that.

If you don't like Space Soccer, though, there's a remix on the bottom screen you're going to just love... hahaha you have to keep tapping as it switches games on you or else you'll drop the ball. at least the remixes keep you on your toes by mixing it up. :)

Lockstep was my freaking nemesis for a while, though. that one took me forever to get right, especially because as the voice makes the noise to start you off on the downbeat, it fades, and that fading (when it starts getting hectic) sounds a lot like the pickup for you to switch to the off-beat, and in that one if you don't switch right when you have to, you're dead in the water. ugh. :( Once you've got it down, though, it's pretty easy.

@Adam: Hey, man, Judge Dredd has a solid 15% on Rotten Tomatoes. I thought Demolition Man would've been rated about as bad, but it's sitting at 65%. That's more than Mamma Mia!'s 53%... ouch, lol.

@CowLaunch: dang, you ain't kidding. even in crappy condition, those things go for a bit more than 50p (what is that, 75 cents? a buck? i know nothing of British moneys o_O;;;; ) nowadays. D:

also: i just figured out that if you attempt to quote 'Adam', you get the link to 'weirdadam', but when you go to edit your comment it stays 'weirdadam' (just like any italics or bold tags in brackets get turned into asterisks or underscores in an edit). If you post your edited reply without changing the value back to 'Adam', that's when it turns into the delinked 'weirdadam', but if you make the effort to change your quote value back to 'Adam', it'll re-link to 'weirdadam'.

this is totally weird. i bet it's a conspiracy of some sort. :P

@CowLaunch: i figured it had something to do with quoting names that involved spaces. i wonder if it's impossible to quote names with spaces if you don't put in the +? let's find out: hey, awesome, it's totally possible! but if you edit, it tries to throw the + back in there for no good reason, what the heck? o_O

Also, what do you mean "looks normal to me"? What looks normal...? I was saying that the image he described (a chicken and a senator inscribing their love on a tree trunk) would make for a good avatar if he can draw. Also also wik, what does this smiley mean?: :3

(a) when i hit the 'quote' link up there, 'quote=Adam' showed up in the box (plus brackets), so I thought it was going to be fine (thus, 'looks normal to me' :)), but then when I hit 'post reply' it finagled itself into 'weirdadam'. so then I edited without realizing i would lose the link, and then i edited again because i'd totally screwed everything up.

@SuperSonic: where are you at in OoT? that's another game i played the heck out of when it came out, lol. much love for OoT (even though I've never been too happy with the ending, but that's beside the point :P)
@jangonov: nooooooooooooooooooooooooo... that sucks. ah well. i just have to get the Attack Scarf again in my VC savefile and I'll be on par with what I had on the cartridge, I guess... never did get the Super Suit. :(
@Chicken Brutus: ha, it was easy for me, because i had no friends that lived near me at the time. :P

but that's not the case now! Mallow just called, he said he's sick of being treated like a happy ball of fluff, so we're gonna get together and rectify that with a manly movie night. We're ordering pizza, gonna watch some bad Stallone flicks (Judge Dredd, Demolition Man... they're so bad they're good!), and we're also gonna drink beer and crush the cans against our foreheads. i don't know how well that's gonna work, with him being a cloud and all, but i guess we'll figure it out once we come to it. :D

@CowLaunch: Anecdote time! :D

i love Super Mario RPG to pieces. when it first came out, I begged my mom to rent it from Blockbuster for me, and I played it for three days straight (it was the summer, my little brother and sister were out with my dad for the weekend or whatever so I had unlimited access to the TV and SNES, good times). I think I had a handful of oreos on the second day, and that was it (except for the occasional drink) until on the afternoon of the third day when my mom sat me down and made me eat something lol. I slept in front of the TV, i was so serious about that game, but i also made some dumb mistakes (i didn't grind enough so I kept having to re-fight bosses, d'oh). I had just barely made it to the Axem Rangers battle when we finally had to take it back (yeah i can probably get through the entire game in one day now, lol, if i don't go out of my way re: sidequests), and I was so sad that my mom bought the game for me a couple days later. I've still got the original cartridge, and I actually hooked up the SNES every so often just so I could play that game until it finally came out for VC. I hope someday we get a true sequel someday, but i doubt it'll ever happen. TT^TT

does anyone know how long the battery generally lasts for SNES games with save options? I'm going to be a saaaaaaad panda when that thing dies and my original savefile is obliterated. :(
