Don't get any of them.
Super Nintedo FTW!
for a nintendo fan, very odd statement
so you want me to play my super nintendo...

I just prefer older games over the newer ones, that's all. Graphics don't really matter to me. Although I do think that nsmbwii looks intriguing, but I'll probably wait for a while to get it.

Well I like a little challenge. As long as I don't get stuck for too long because then I usually start to lose interest.

The challenge in the game is always the best part, a game is no fun when you are whoopin' ass and getting through the game no problem.

Haven't played much Nintendo lately due to Modern Whorefare 2, been trying to get every trophy.


Yeah, whatever.

Just 100% completed Majora's Mask. Got all masks, heart pieces, powerups, etc.

Moving on to 100% OoT, all I need to do is finish that goddamn fishing hole and get the Golden Scale so I can get the last heart piece. Anyone have any tips to beat the fishing hole as an adult? I haven't gotten the sinking lure yet either.

Also started on 100% completing Twilight Princess. My aim is to have all the Zelda games 100%completed by the end of the year, mainly just so I can say I have absolutely raped every Zelda game. Except the CD-i ones.

I suppose that would be okay if it's a very long game with an interesting story, but I don't really expect such things from a SNES game.

Yeah I got some tips:
A) I would not get the sinking lure because the fisherman is gonna bitch about it and I believe he's not gonna give you anything if you break the record with a fish you caught with the sinking lure.
B) The biggest fish in the pond swims at the center, but I believe there is only one specific moment where you get a chance to catch him (with a normal lure). I'm not sure when that is, so you're gonna have to search for a FAQ if you want to know. That fish weights 22 pounds I believe.
C) The second largest fish I could ever find is much easier to locate and catch. He swims on the left side of the pond where there is this large branch or something sticking out of the water. He weights about 20 pounds or so.
D) The third largest fish I could find is even easier to catch. He swims on the right side of the pond near the small river. There are two pillar-like things sticking out of the water with two fishes near them. One weights 16 pounds, the other 12 pounds. You gotta be a bit careful because the 12 pound-fish is more eager to bite and that will scare the other one.

The 16 pound-fish should already be enough to get you a golden scale.

Goddamnit! I lost my FF6 save file! I had about 30 hours of gameplay in that game and was getting very near the end. Actually I just needed to collect the last few espers before I went to Kefka's Tower.

Crap.

Playing Donkey Kong Country 2 at this moment. For some reason, I find it a shitload harder than the original.

That game is amazingly fun, if only it didn't had that cheat button. So whenever I'm lazy, I use it :D.

I think it's because most of the enemies have range in that one, where as in DK1, most of them just walked around. Although I think the bosses in DK1 are quite a bit harder.

Sure thing. It's a shitload of fun, alone or with friends, but only if you have good teamwork with your partners. If not, they will get in the way and you will be very frustrated. There's no need for the Super Guide since it's pretty easy so far. The new power ups are awesome and the plot is sort of like a remake of Super Mario Bros 3, but it has a lot of originality in level design. Has a lot of nostalgic moments such as boss fights and music. If you love Mario as much as I do then get it. NOW!!!

I had a party at my friends house yesterday and we found his old N64 in a closet along with some games. We had loads of fun playing Fifa 64, Mario Tennis and Pokemon Snap again. I noticed Fifa 64 has become a bit outdated, but the other two are still awesome games. Even graphic-wise they're still pretty good.

You wouldn't believe how long I took beating that fucking Bee. I hated that boss. Although there were easy ones, like the Oil Drum who's name I can't remember.

I could never get past that boss, or that world, for that matter, without some sort of assistance from a second player. Dropping extra enemies from the sky is NOT okay!

Dude, please.

The bee boss in the 2nd game makes the first one look like a little baby. Try beating it with the parrot. It's a lot harder.

Well, I have started to play Paper Mario, once again (4th time this year) but this time, I'm not leveling up at all, I'm only fighting the bosses, and mini bosses. All my level ups will go to BP. I am currently doing the Shy Guy Hitler... I mean General Guy.

I'm not looking foward to Anti Guy and Kent C. Koopa...

I can imagine that'll be difficult. Considering some bosses could do at least 3 points of damage, even if you manage to defend. Also, doesn't Bowser do like.. 7 damage in one hit with one of his attacks? Meh.. Good luck to you anyway.

Once you beat the Shy Guy General, things are a lot easier thanks to Musklar and his ability to bring down enemies damage by 3, making most attacks have no effect if blocked correctly. There is also the Power Rush, Mega Rush, and Last Stand badges that are extremely useful. While Merluvlee's curse is random, it does tend to help when you desperately need it. It's going good overall and am now at Mt. Lavalava but now I am having some difficulty avoiding enemies and staying alive.

I think Kent Coopa, Bowser and some of the other upcoming bosses are gonna be really difficult though. But I'm not such an experienced player. I've only played through the game once.

Anyway, I'm thinking about ordering Metroid Prime for the Gamecube. Gamecube games aren't worth shit anymore, so I found it somewhere in an online store cheap (only 13 euros*). I was also interested in Tales of Symphonia, but I couldn't find it alas.

*Oddly enough they were selling it on Amazon for $75 =/

I got Metroid Prime today and played it for a bit. So far it's been very similar to Metroid Prime 2 as I expected. With a few nice differences though.

First off and most importantly, I noticed the music in this game is far better than in the sequel. At least, in my opinion. In MP2 the music was one of the few things that I hated. I felt like I was constantly listening to 10 second loops all the time. In this game however the music is far more interesting and the space station's music at the beginning really creeped me out.

Secondly I like how you get a little piece of artwork every time you scan a creature or some life-form. This wasn't in the sequel although you did get a 3D model of the creature in that one which was also nice. I don't like how you only get a small orange square on an object you can scan though. In the sequel they turned into a different color which was far more clear.

For the rest a couple of minor things like effects that are different. I'm not saying they look better, but it's nice that they updated that a bit.

One odd thing I found by the way was how the game only counts gametime as the time you spend walking around. It doesn't seem to count the time you're pausing the game to read logs or whatever and I know a lot of hours go into that.

But anyway I'm enjoying it so far.

Replaying Metroid Prime 3: Corruption for the 5th time. I always get stuck at the part where you need Power Cells, and I'm too lazy to backtrack and look for them all, even with a walkthrough. This time, it's legit though. 3 years and I still can't beat the fucking game, just like Metroid Prime Hunters.

He's actually not that hard. Just set your badges and your partners appropriately and be able block most of his hits. The only real scary part is the damage he does, but make sure you have Super Shrooms, Life Shrooms, and you'll be fine. I beat him before I beat General Guy, but that was on my 4th run when I knew what I was doing.

Still enjoying Metroid Prime here.

I just kicked Thardus ass and got the Spider Ball. I must say that although the boss fights are less frequent than in MP2, they sure are pretty epic.

I'm not sure how far I am in the game right now by the way. Everything suggests that I'm at about a quarter, but it looks like I've already visited most areas. I suppose the searching for artifacts at the end must take quite a while then. Hopefully it's not as tough as the invisible ingpods in MP2 though.

Who's the Anti-Guy again? Is that the boss of the ice level? I thought he was a piece of cake.

HE was the black SHY GUY who guarded the treasure chest in the toy box.

Oh wait, yeah now I remember. He was indeed a tough miniboss. I think I did beat him on my first try though, but with only a few HP left.

Lol.

I got some new N64 controllers for Christmas. I'm quite happy with those since my older ones were all broken.

So what did you guys get?

*Sigh*

I'm stuck at this point. The most straightforward path leads me to a new area in the Magmoor Caverns, but from there I can only continue to older areas. The hint system points me to a very odd room as well, which I can't even enter without the Ice Beam (and I don't have that yet).
