hey now, if we're talking about men in skirt-like clothing, it doesn't get more manly than these guys:
Untitled

also, don't forget the Romans, the Egyptians, the ancient Chinese, and other peoples typically had their males wearing non-pants around on a daily basis. some even had their men as pampered and makeup'd as their women. That doesn't make them any less 'manly' :/

i like where this is going :3

to be absolutely honest, though — I wouldn't mind it if Link was a girl. I'd like it more if the person (male, female, or otherwise) in the 'Zelda' position actually took some responsibility for their kingdom and saved it themselves, though; i think that would be more revolutionary to the series than switching around the gender of the main protagonist.

I like Saga minus the lag in Runner.

The final song in Beat was also lagged beyond playability. It was really awful for a rhythm game to desync that badly. :/

Core did the exact same thing. I could get past it in Exploration, but Control was too bad for me to continue :/

@Aviator: 'CEO sarcasm'? is that an actual term? If it is, i'm not really aware of it so i can't tell you much about it, but if you're just talking about LJM's post up there, i find it amusing. :3

@GuardianKing: That was one of the last reviews I wrote for NL iirc, lol. It was actually a fun game — I remember dreading having to play it because I had something else to play at the time (I don't remember what was out back then, but I was fully entrenched in something kinda new and I didn't want to put it down for just a download review game, haha) but StT really sucked me in. I was quite happy with it.

@LTD: I don't really care whether something is 'current' or 'next-gen'. all I care about is whether or not they're putting out games for it, and if those games are ones I want to play, I'll wind up purchasing the console eventually. :3

@JusticeColde: lord no! barbed wire, thumbtacks, tables/ladders/chairs, garbage cans, sledgehammers, kendo sticks, boots, pipes, whips, cans of spray paint, steel steps, TVs, and a whole laundry list of random crap they pulled out their butts every night...

I saw your comment in that other thread, and I don't appreciate it. Allow me to explain: I have a life outside of NL — today I spent the hours between 2 and 7:45-ish doing something I didn't really want to do in the first place to earn money to pay my rent, my bills, buy groceries and the occasional video game. My right hand is sore and I probably won't be able to grasp much with it for a few hours — i can barely hit the right keys on my keyboard right now. I take my job very seriously, and coming back my computer to find 26 e-mails staring me in the face is naturally quite distressing. We'll see you again tomorrow.

it looks like you get each of the three main (playable) songs from each of the games on the sampler CD. The full soundtracks include these songs plus the intro/credits tunes as well as the sounds for transitions between levels if you're wondering what you're missing :3

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?
