it would be interesting to have the option to choose between monochrome and color, though. i seem to recall being able to colorize GB games when played on a GBC; maybe they'd bring that back for us :3

These new Wiiware games made to resemble the good old days of gaming always bring a smile to my face. Stuff Like Konami's Rebirth series, Capcom's Mega Man 9 and 10 as well as the new Sonic 4. It's really hard to find kids who can appreciate these type of oldschool games. In todays world where Graphics are the biggest selling point to the youth of the current generation. I'm soo glad I was raised in the early days when games were games. Most kids today probably take one look at old stuff and go.... Yuck what garbage is that you're playing?

way to assume the worst about today's generation... there are plenty of kids on these forums here and now who appreciate the games we grew up with as kids ourselves. yeah, most other kids who aren't heavily into games might not go for the classic stuff now, but as they age into adulthood and their tastes mature they'll gradually gravitate toward the classics. it's just like TV, books, or other forms of entertainment. It's not worth getting worked up over just because a 12-year-old turns their nose up at what you may personally consider a retro masterpiece.

honestly, there is no teaching to be done here... you can lead a horse to water, but you can't make it drink. move on and play the games you like, don't worry about what anyone else thinks about 'em.

@hulklol: you may want to read over what the Scoring Policy has to say about a 7:

7 - Good

A seven is not average in our eyes. This game will sport a few areas where the game is blatantly let down to the detriment of its overall quality and enjoyment, but it is NOT average. A seven is still a recommendation, but you might want to consider what we thought let the game down and decide for yourself if it would bother you before buying.

You may not be happy with it getting a 7, but in no way is a that a negative score in and of itself.

Gmail works fine on my DSi, but (a) it's slow as hell, natch, and (b) you have to click the 'view as HTML for slow connections' or whatever link that is to bypass all the fancy interface stuff :3 I don't see it working any better on the 3DS to be honest -- there's some times where i have to be able to e-mail people right then and there, so i'll just bypass checking my Gmail with it altogether, probably :3

yeah, that's been there. it says 'Wii', but note that when you search other VC titles that have no other plans re: coming to the Wii via retail (SMRPG, for example) it'll also say 'Wii' beside it. I don't think they differentiate between the Wii and VC :3

no way. i'd hate to see the kind of data plan that'd require D: i also wouldn't want to be the one dork out in public using a handheld console as a phone -- and not to mention, what happens if you're in the middle of a game and someone calls you (which happens to me a lot)? it wouldn't really be feasible to keep playing and talk at the same time (which i like to do, especially if it's like my sister calling and i don't really want to pay attention to her, lol) :3

monster.com is crap, careerbuilder is only slightly better if you have no degree. without a degree, snagajob was pretty good -- it actually netted me two interviews. some big corporations like wal-mart, target, sears, lowes, family dollar, etc. may not advertise via the big job-search websites, but they'll have applications you can fill out from their own websites (and if you try to go into their stores and ask for an application they'll point you to a kiosk or tell you to apply online). now is the best time to try to apply for a job at a retail store, everyone's looking for seasonal help at the moment.

watch out for craigslist, though -- they've cracked down on scammers lately, but there's still all kinds of 'em hanging around waiting to phish your info.
