It would be weird not to release IV before this. I hope they do.

now that would be cool, if they were to release FFIV to VC alongside The After Years. :3

Also, I have a question about the browser: How do you connect it to the internet while you're out on the open road?

if you're talking about internets while you're on vacation or traveling someplace, there are truck stops and hotels equipped with wi-fi (whether or not you have to pay for it depends on the place, i guess). that's how truckers stay connected, lol.

there's a lot of returning characters, and the story is supposed to be picking up 17 years after the end of IV. I don't doubt that you'd be able to play it on its own without a problem, but you're not going to understand half of what's going on in the background.

Well technically you weren't really wrong since you "always predict them to be bad so [you're] always right or surprised", right? I thought that comment was so funny. :)

expect the worst, hope for the best. it's a solid mindset for a lot of things, not just Nintendo's VC/WW releases. :3

AuthorRe: I would love to see New play control Twilight princes and NPC Resident Evil 4
AvatarAdmin

not so much... Twilight Princess was developed originally for GC but then was switched to the Wii when Miyamoto felt the new pointing interface would work well with shooting arrows. TP had an original release date of 2005, but that was pushed back so that they could finish developing the Wii version. The only thing keeping TP from being an official NPC game is the fact that it came so late in the GC's lifetime that they were able to push the GC release back.

If you want to get technical, it's the exact same game, same story, same mechanics, just with movements taking the place of button presses and a flipped map layout because they couldn't rework Link himself in time to make him left-handed. If that's not a New Play Control game, then what is?

i wish Nintendo would just come out with a classic controller that had actual C-buttons, not the stupid C-analog stick like the Gamecube controller. i actually liked the C-buttons, i loved the N64 controller just the way it was, and playing N64 games without them/without the original controller (I'm looking at you, Ocarina of Time) is a pain in the rear.

i will definitely keep that website in mind when i've got the money to go controller shopping again, because I've still got my N64 controllers in storage (along with the system, lol). thanks for the link!

i wish there were more adventure-type games available... something with an actual story behind it that I can get into. Lostwinds 2, Icarian: Kindred Spirits, and FFIV: The After Years are the kind of games I'm looking forward to at the moment.

(a) yes, we do get a 'special prize' if we reach gold/platinum status for the Club Nintendo year
(b) they will announce whatever they're going to give us sometime in June or July (i forget exactly when, but it's around when the CN year ends/begins), and then they'll send it out to eligible members sometime in the latter portion of the calendar year. Club Nintendo of Japan has gotten some pretty awesome stuff in past years, so here's hoping we get some cool stuff too this year. :3

i will agree with you except for fighting games -- when you're in the thick of things, sometimes it's helpful to see which way you need to move it (Smackdown vs. Raw 2009's way of doing it is nice IMO; it's present but it's not too godawful intrusive). then again, i've always been a button-masher at heart (i have no capacity for remembering combos or setting up moves... it's not like i haven't tried... the most recent was Budokai Tenkaichi 2, and it sent me into conniption fits :(), so I like the on-screen reminders of what i need to do to complete the move IRL.

The coins do in fact expire, but it's two Nintendo Club years (July 1st to June 30th iirc) after they enter your account. for example, if you registered a DS game in March of this year, the coins you received for registering it would not expire until June 30th of 2011.

considering Amazon.com (not a reseller listing on Amazon) still has new copies of No More Heroes available (which has been off the shelves in the US since late last October-ish? don't quite remember), if you can't find it new here when you come to buy it, chances are Amazon will still have it when you get back home. That way you can be sure your money will have gone into Xseed's pockets instead of a reseller's.

@Edwin: It's like watching a season of an anime series before watching the theatrical movie release; the movie (alternate-universe) release is perfectly fine on its own, but you'll get more out of it after having watched the rest of the (canon) series first. That's how I feel about it, anyway.
