Did you perfect any of those beloved games @ theblackdragon ?
Oh sure you wont recommend it and yet you still dont have the so said superior version?
I noticed graphical additions in saga. Not only stereoscopic is adding to it but the games are crisper and better looking too.
I went back to the wiiware bittrips and now with their blurry and less comlex visuals they look so dull compared to saga.
The only pro which goes to complete is the stayed multiplayer. Sure in terms of "poor" port, the missing multiplayer can be counted, but not much more.
And you do realize its not a port but a remake ? Clearly the polygons and stuff had to be remade or otherwise it wouldnt had worked in stereo 3d.

The reason I don't yet own Complete is (a) because I already own the entire series for the Wii, and (b) it was hard enough to find a copy of Saga in town. I remember when it hit, I was hounding every GameStop in town for a week trying to find a copy, and when one of them finally was able to confirm for me that they had one copy in stock I was there in fifteen minutes asking for it. I didn't have the extra money to be throwing around at the time so I didn't pick up Complete as well, and to be honest I still don't have money to be throwing around for games I already own. I'll pick up Complete eventually for the bonus Challenge levels, but for right now I've got the originals, and to be honest that's enough for me.

As for 'remake' vs. 'port', it's the original games ported to a new system. there's no 'remake' about them at all. if the graphics were changed, it was necessary to do so to get them to display correctly on the 3DS, but nothing was radically changed — unless you want to consider the added difficulties in terms of framerate issues and music desyncing. i guess that could push this into 'remake' territory, though I wouldn't say it's for the best at all.

Framerate hiccupping and music de-syncing happen in the other games too — I especially noticed it with Core, which is one of my favorites in the series and i've played it a bazillion times over. Saga was a poor port. It's interesting to have as a part of my collection, but I can't take it seriously because it's horrendous to someone like me who played through the games as they were released for WiiWare and enjoyed them immensely in their original near-flawless format.

I would not recommend Saga to any potential Bit.Trip fan. Complete is supposedly perfect (though I haven't quite had the opportunity to hunt myself down a copy yet), and of course the games are still available as WiiWare, so I'd recommend either of those routes if possible. Please don't judge the series by the way they're presented in Saga, because Saga is awful.

@stratthecat: idk how it goes across the pond, but i know here in the US game shops tend to not get minor third-party releases on its 'street date'; they tend to have them in stock within the next day or so afterward. the street date is more along the lines of a 'shipping to stores' date over here (unless there's something wrong with the supply chain and the game is super-late to be in stores, e.g. Bit.Trip SAGA). try waiting a day or two?

@weatherguy: we currently have upwards of 31,000 users in our database.
@Void: I'm going to pretend that one of the choices you posted was a delicious pepperoni pizza instead of the crap you're trying to feed me, and then i'll choose that option (though I have tried rocky mountain oysters before; they're not something I'd go out of my way for but they were okay)
@Happy_Mask: Depends on what sort of free time i've got available — obviously if i can't be sitting in front of a TV, then TWEWY, but if i've got the time to hunker down in front of my Wii, definitely Xenoblade. a home vs. handheld console game isn't really much of a contest, lol. Also, idk, i think i liked your previous avatar before because it focused right in on the Happy Mask salesman D:
@Capt_N: the PSX is my favorite non-Nintendo console. as for non-Nintendo handheld, the PSP.
Moderating the site is far more fun than answering these questions, but it's nice to have a break :3
In general, you guys don't drive me to insanity, but yes, there have been days I just wanted to pull my hair out, if that's what you're asking :3
Just stay where you're at. Screw Zelda, let her save herself for once. >:[
@katooooo: To be honest, they've only got a few months left in the year anyway, so i'd suggest believing them that they won't put out a MM game. That way if they do decide to put one out, it'll be a nice surprise, and if they don't, you won't have been disappointed because you weren't expecting anything anyway.
No, I'm really not excited about Runner2, and yes, it is because of the art style shift. The Bit.Trip series is over and done with, Commander Video's story has already been told. There isn't anything to draw me emotionally back into the series, so I can give or take a sequel to be honest. Add the hideous new art style to it, and it just makes Runner2 a game that I'm not interested in at all. if I get a Wii U eventually i may wind up picking it up just to say i've played it, but idk if i can see myself pushing as hard as i did to get through Runner1 to get through Runner2...
I can change my avatar anytime I like... but whether i will or not is something else entirely, haha. :3
@JusticeColde: I don't really think I'd be watching that particular Let's Play to begin with, but I do believe if I were, i'd just stop watching at that point and go find something else, lol
@TheDreamingHawk: I never played Kirby 64, I'm afraid, so i have no idea what you're talking about.
