this is not the place to argue what is or is not retro — i'm pretty sure there's another thread for that, and i'm pretty sure i've seen most of you posting in it already. either discuss the topic at hand or do not post in this thread if it bothers you so much. thank you.

25 years from now is a long time, but I can easily see Final Fantasy IV being re-released for the nth time. Only this time they'll have inserted scenes of Mog taking a bath, replaced all the weapons with walkie-talkies, and the people of the Village of Mist will have attacked the package that Cecil and Kain deliver so that it'll look justified when the monsters emerge and kill them all.

(and then a few years later, the devs will come out and say it was a mistake to have made all those changes and for everyone to go back to previous iterations of the game. there, all better~)

Isn't there a way to link a sixaxis controller to your PC yet? I usually bust out my old Playstation controllers whenever there's a game i need it for on my computer, lol — you can get controller-to-USB connectors on the internet.

'too different' my foot; it's chock full of ideas that aren't being used at the moment. it could be just what Mario needs to freshen up his platformers.

There were bob-ombs in SMB3, pokeys in SMW, shy guys in SMW2:YI and shy guys and Birdo in SMRPG. As i stated before, i'd like to see other things that we haven't seen again, things other than enemies — picking up vegetables and items to throw and build pathways, hidden doors, potions leading to a dark world to explore, and SMB2-style bosses. phanto and magic carpets and POW-blocks and bird-beak portals and chains to climb and stuff.

like i wanted from a NSMB2, I want to see elements of Super Mario Bros 2 (US) used in one of these revamps eventually — vegetables and enemies to pick up and throw, secret doors, potions to throw and dark world segments to explore, different bosses, etc. and so forth. i wouldn't mind if it didn't introduce any new suits (the new suits in general tend to be the least interesting thing for me; i hated the shell suit and the boomerang suit doesn't interest me either), i just want something taking SMB2 to another level and legitimizing it as a Mario title instead of leaving it forever the black sheep of the series, the ideas it brings to the table left to rot.

does that same controller give you similar problems while playing other games that allow you to use the CC as an option? that would definitely nail the controller itself as the problem, because I've never heard anyone else complain about SM64 doing that to them. i doubt it's the game itself that's glitching out on you.

@HMack: I get why they did it, but it still doesn't make sense — it was like they were just in a rush to wrap everything up. I figured they'd written themselves into a bad corner... ah well.

currently we're watching Jejoongwon (i think that's what it's called, it focuses on the introduction of western medicine to Korea). i'm not a huge huge fan of it, but my husband likes it. it's interesting how they've incorporated English through the doctors and some of the medical techniques, but y'know... with as illegal as impersonating a man was back then, these female protagonists sure tend to resort to it a lot, lol. :3
