[QUOTE="SirSpudly"]You kinda missed the boat there chief.Well first of all, thanks for stealing my little blue guy. Way to clone him. Back on topic, yeah, I saw those deals. Had Red Steel, beat Rayman in a day, so I mean I didn't miss 'em. Just didn't want to take advantage of em. Wait for about a year or so before the games get lower. But you called your avitar a "blue guy". Do you know who he is? I'm just wondering. After all, he's been around since the days of the NES. I wish they'd make more games with him in it. If you want to see more of him and have a NES, go to a pawn shop and find "The Adventures of Lolo". You'd love it, that is if you like games that make you think. It's a puzzler and a cult classic. I miss you Lolo. :(
Circuit City had Red Steel and Rayman for $30 each. Then I Best Buy had some $30 games yesterday. I know it wasn't Excite truck, but if you wait long enough, the bargain bin will fill. On the other hand, you can pick up most games now and trade them in for over $20 when you finish them early, so maybe hang around an EB sometime and offer 5 bucks more to someone looking to trade one in. Other than that, just check ebay and amazon and whatnot.
[QUOTE="Jaysonguy"][QUOTE="smileyryder34"]I haven't played sonic yet, so I don't know about that review. Kirby, though I have played and I LOVE that game. It's cute, it's fun, it's got good music. It looks amazing for an NES game. Compared to games from today it's not worth a 9.5, but comparing it to other NES games, it's easily worth that. smileyryder34
Well that's the point, you're paying money now, not in the past.
It should be judged on how it compares to games these days, it still hold up but it's not a 9.5
This is where I would disagree a bit. I don't think VC games should be strictly compared to today's games. You're not paying for the same gameplay experience. You're paying for that classic experience. I do think how well it's help up should be considered somewhat, but for the most part no. I buy classic games for classic gameplay experiences so I want to know how that is rated. Kirby, I think, has held up well. The graphics themselves are dated, but that' to be expected. they don't look bad. I think you have to compare classic games to the games they competed against, not against what's out today. If you did that ALL VC games would get ratings in the 4's. Many of the gameplay elements in Kirby are found in games today, ie New super Mario Bros. They're similar games, yet Mario is well regarded as well. So I think the rating is somewhat justified. I agree. They should be rated based on the fact that they are VC games, not retail games. You wouldn't want to judge XBLA games based on retail games would you? Of course not. They should have their own rating system. XBLA and VC games both.
[QUOTE="Nintendo_Ownes7"][QUOTE="-ZeRoHouR-"]Just wondering if anybody here has used it for the Wii online and how it works or how you like it. I just bought a Wii and don't have a wireless router but since I live in dorms, I don't want anybody to mootch off of my connection, so I am trying to check different options.-ZeRoHouR-You can by an Ethernet adapter but I don't know if they sell them yet, But Nintendo said they will sell them soon.
I think it's already out but I heard some bad things on it. I am just trying to find an easy solution. They have third party Ethernet adapters which are pretty bad. But if you go to Nintendo and get one from them, it'll work just fine. I have one since I live in the dorms as well.
