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.

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.

No,because the Zelda in the Child Timeline is not the same Zelda in the Adult Timeline. The timeline split created 2 Links,2 Zeldas,and 2 Ganondorfs. I know,it's confusing isn't it? The timelines are a mess.

ah, i see what you mean. my bad. in that case, Zelda had Link under her power (along with the Ocarina in her hands) for an unspecified period of time during the ending. She also had powers as the seventh Sage and the bearer of the Triforce of Wisdom; we have no real idea of what she could or could not have done during the end sequence to prepare herself in the Child timeline to have Ganondorf executed.

also, there is a problem with the Child/Adult timelines theory -- Link initially disappears from the Child timeline after Ganondorf has stolen Zelda away from the castle, after she has thrown him the Ocarina of Time. with them meeting again, Link has not been thrown back into the original Child timeline at the end of the game if they show him meeting her in the garden again; if he has been put back in at the beginning of everything, he has been thrown into yet another timeline.

had he been returned to the original Child timeline, it would have to have been done at the time of his original disappearance to avoid a paradox, and at that point it would have been too late. Ganondorf would still be as powerful as he had been the first time around, and still as unstoppable. There is also the problem of the Deku Tree; it dies before Link goes to Hyrule, and though Link killed the monster inside there is no saving the Great Deku Tree. There are still going to be problems with Link's childhood thanks to Ganondorf's evil if he is sent back to the beginning, there will be no reward of 'regaining his lost years' or 'returning home' unless Adult Zelda does something drastic with the new timeline she creates for him.

Why would they execute Ganondorf unless Link told Zelda?

Zelda was the one who played the Ocarina and reset time. She could have left her own memories alone so that she could produce enough evidence to convince the King to have Ganondorf executed, thus 'fixing her mistakes' from the first time through (where she brought Link into the mess) and 'bringing peace to Hyrule' in the process.

No he dosen't lose his memories. How come Link could warn Zelda about Ganondorf at the very end of the game if he couldn't remember?

but we don't know that he was warning her about Ganondorf at that point. we don't really know what he was doing there at all. the game just stops there when their eyes meet.

@Zane: they were adults at that point in the ending, weren't they? 'Adult Link' was the one who defeated Ganondorf, not 'Child Link'...

@SuperSonic: whether or not she erased his memory is debatable, but when I first played through the game, that was the impression I had of what happened, and it has stuck with me ever since. And Zelda kissing link in prior games is beside the point. with him going back to a child after spending so much time as a man, she could've at least kissed him for his effort before sending him back to live with the fairies, y'know what i'm saying? :P

also, i know about the timeline mess. but still, with his memories gone (again, debatable, but you won't change my mind on it) it's like it never happened. i'm not saying it was all completely erased from the Zelda timeline, i'm talking about Link in OoT here.

technically, I don't think we're sure. Zelda tells him that 'it's time for me to make up for my mistakes' and 'when peace returns to Hyrule, it'll be time to say goodbye', and then she says 'go home, regain your lost time... home, where you are supposed to be'. we don't see Link again until he shows up in Zelda's garden, just like when they met for the first time.

personally, i think she either (a) wasn't able to fully erase his memory, leading him back to her garden to confront her, or (b) perhaps the Great Deku Tree had a hand in sending him to her. either way... aargh. :|

And if you think THAT's a copout, I wonder what you must think of the end of Majora's Mask

Majora's Mask was different. It wasn't really meant to be part of the main LoZ story, so it can get away with more funny business. :) As for Twilight Princess, I was just sad that Link didn't go with Midna, that he was stuck with Zelda. Zelda behaved very passively in that game (compared to OoT, where she was directly helping Link as Sheik), and Midna was the better heroine of the two IMO. I hope there's some way for them to bring Midna back in another game -- another non-canon installment, perhaps?

The main flaw I see here is the concept that Nintendo can give us so many great games that we ask them to stop. That has never, EVER happened in the entire history of Nintendo, so what the heck makes her think it'll happen now?

the problem I had with that quote is that there's so many people out there both supporting and deriding almost every game. Galaxy, SSBB, Zelda, Wii Sports, Mario Kart... all have their fair share of people who like and do not like them. She's talking as if there were a way to please everyone with one single magical game, and there is no such way.

I'd sure like to see them try, though. Maybe I'd get lucky and be in the half of their consumer base that is thrilled with what they come out with. :3

Zelda just takes the Ocarina from him and sends him back to the beginning of it all! IIRC, he didn't even get a kiss out of the deal. Link did all that hard work, and he'll never know he actually did it. And if he ever remembers, no one will believe him. How freaking lame is that? I know the ending is all poignant and stuff, with the Sages having to remain separate from everyone, but there's so many 'it was all a dream' or 'great, you got through it, now let's send you back to the beginning and you'll never remember it' TV shows and movies and whatnot that it still feels like a cheap cop-out to me.

I love playing through OoT because there's so much going on -- the Gorons accept you as a brother, Princess Ruto wants to get in your pants, you steal a beautiful horse (and the heart of the milkmaid?), Saria kinda leaves you behind to become a Sage, you have a freaking adventure and a half with the Gerudo womens, you explore a creepy underground dungeon with phantom walls and floors, giant pointy fairies shriek with happiness when they see you coming, and yet in the end, with all the puzzles you figured out and the miniquests you completed to get hearts and abilities and stuff, it's like it never happened. what?!?? Way to dodge Link having to deal with/getting to enjoy his newfound awesomeness, even for a few minutes of an FMV sequence, LoZ writers. :|
