I had one, two, and three, and I always loved DKC2 the best. It had the perfect balance of fun and challenge, and the music and graphics were good. I always had to mess around with the contrast on my TV, though, so I could see everything properly. :3

The last anime series I watched was Gankutsuou... it was really, really weird. o_O;; Last movie was Tokyo Godfathers; it shows up on Ovation every so often. It's now one of my favorite movies. :3

It could be they just happen to be holding back on these games and we're getting worked up over nothing. They do have to hold back some good titles or the VC would lose our interest eventually.

also plausible. it's not like they haven't done it before. :)

Star Fox is one of the games I own cartridge-wise, and out of curiosity I downloaded the ROM to play via emulator on the Wii (and when they release it via VC i will be purchasing it, thanks). i had no problems with the console itself playing the game (and I played the hell out of it when I was younger; i would know if something wasn't being rendered properly), so i would guess it's some issue hindering Nintendo that wouldn't hinder writers of unofficial emulation software... licensing sounds plausible.

had my dsi only about a week now and the top half of it seems really loss and flimsy. Anyone elses like this?

speaking of flimsy, i've noticed that when i'm playing a game and holding on to the DSi firmly (i'm right-handed, so i naturally hold on to it with my left hand if i'm playing a game), the cover for the battery has a little bit of play in the middle (between the two screws, it squeaks/pops up a bit when i let it go after gripping). i don't remember that happening with my DS Lite at all... it kinda weirds me out. :/

@Prosody: voice chat + competitive games = trash talking out the wazoo. i would think that would be a pretty big barrier to Wii Speak in competitive games featuring flagship Nintendo characters (Mario Kart, Smash Bros. Brawl)... I doubt Nintendo would want their more family-friendly games publicly associated in any way to 11-year-old boys flinging homosexually-charged insults at one another. i could see Wii Speak capabilities for the more mature titles that are starting to crop up for the Wii if they feature wi-fi play, but not so much for stuff like Mario Kart. :(

I'm with you on that one, although there's no way something like Mario Kart would feature Wii Speak as the Internet would come crashing down due to an overload of swearing.

it's also counter-productive... if you love it so much, screw the haters and just go play it. :)

I'm with Adam that it's harder than Lost Levels.

I'm with you guys. At least when you die in Lost Levels, you can restart from the beginning of the level as many times as you like (or at least you can with the VC version; dunno how the actual Famicom cartridge worked 'cuz i never had one :)). SMB2, you get three continues and then you're back to square one.

The Super Mario All-Stars version wasn't bad, because it auto-saved for you when you reached a new level and you could start from that over and over again, actual continues be damned. That incarnation of SMB2, I liked. The original, though... I can only beat it with the warps. I don't like having to warp to get through a game. :/

sorry, i've only got experience with PC issues, but apparently you're not the only one who's had problems with DS/DSis and AirPort not getting along. here's an article i was able to find via google; i hope it helps. if not, here's an AirPort thread on Nintendo's Tech Support forums, and here's another thread on the Apple discussions forum regarding a DSi unable to connect through AirPort. :)

I went through the first two pages of google results for 'japanese dsi virtual console'... every single page (gizmodo, pcauthority.com. stuff.tv, softpedia, wikipedia, smashgamers.com, computerandvideogames.com, gamersreports.com, play.tm, splegends.com, etc.) that had anything to say about a Japanese VC for DSi was quoting kombo.com... and half of those articles were quoting the original kombo article (pre-edit) as truth. :/

the only thing not related to kombo that I was able to find was an article on gonintendo.com -- here it is -- where their trusted source at a different nintendo dsi event heard the same thing (VC is coming for DSi) from the representative present.

either way, the president of NoA had an interview with Wired.com recently where he says, "The concept of Virtual Console on DSi is not something that we've talked about, nothing that we've commented on. I know it's something many of your readers would like to see, but it's not something that we've talked about,"... so he's either covering it up, or they really aren't working on it at the moment (surely Nintendo of Japan would keep the Nintendo of America president informed about upcoming features/announced features, wouldn't they?).
