Cool, Kirby is a VERY excellent game that I had a lot of fun playing back in the days. :D That game made me a Kirby (and a HAL Lab) fan.

R-Type (1) is still kicking my ass, are there any 'more forgiving' shooters out there? I want to get into one cause I used to love an old PC shooter in my younger days but I just get frustrated instead of enjoying R-Type. ;(

Maybe shooters just aren't for me.

Nice, but I'm waiting for Super Star (announced already).

I finally got my Classic Controller today and played a couple hours of Super Mario World. :) Playing the game with that controller takes me back. I can't wait to be playing stuff like Mega Man X2, Donkey Kong Country 2, Super Mario RPG, etc. on this now.

Nightmare in Dreamland was a remake of Kirby's Adventure. Both are great though.

Wonderful. Part because I want it and part because that probably means Kirby Super Star, AKA the second best 2D platformer ever, is coming soon.

Incidentally, I guess I can understand why HAL might be holding back on making another game in the vein of KSS. Since the "one direction plus one button" controls and the Mirror power's bubble shield and such became the template for Super Smash Bros., putting it in another straightforward adventure game might look like infringement; by now SSB is what's ingrained in people's minds since that was the real success story. Still, I'd like to see it happen at some point...

Maybe shooters just aren't for me.

Which PC shooter was this? Can you describe it?

I don't think R-Type (1) is a good place to start for those who aren't into shooters. R-Type (1) on the TG-16 was an arcade conversion meaning it retains the difficulty of the arcade. Most shooters on consoles are less difficult since they are tuned to 'console gaming' rather than trying to eat your quarters.

Gradius is good but it is very old. I found Soldier Blade to be easier and more fun than Super Star Soldier. R-Type 3 is fun, but you're probably burnt out on R-Type by now.

One of my favorite shooters has been Life Force (NES) which is bound to appear. Two player co-op, when you die you don't start over (and can save your options), the music is wonderful, the levels are unique and very interesting, and with the 30 life cheat the game can be beaten by newcomers. Aside from being a fun shooter, it is considered one of the best NES games. It is the shmup that I am most eagerly anticipating.

BTW, Contra 3 still kicks ass. I have more fun playing that little game over and over than any of these 3d 'epic' games that come out today.

Nope, the games usually appear a week in advance on the servers before actually going up on the actual market on Monday.

It's possible the US might see either New Adventure Island or Chew Man Fu pop up this week- but I wouldn't bet on the former as it hasn't been ESRB rated yet.

Hmm for some reason I have the word 'Menace' or 'Menacer' or something when I think of it, it was a left to right shooter like R-Type (thats why I tried out R-Type as apposed to a scrolling upwards sorta one).

I remember you could power up your blasts different ways, by shooting at the little box before you collected it you could change what blast power up you received.

I'm tryin to research it now, it was more than likely a port from an arcade game or somethin.

I use to spend hours playing that and Sorcerian :lol Both games felt more like they belonged on a console instead of a PC game, cause at the time PC games to me were like Kings Quest and Gold Rush adventure games etc heh.

If I tried it again today it would probably kick my ass too, but being young and having fewer games than now a days to play kinda gave you incentive to keep at it and 'get good'.

I miss those days, being able to some how appreciate mostly any game just cause thats all you had lol.

EDIT: Oooo turns out it was perdominatly an Amiga game made by DMA Design (lolgta), but was also ported to PC which is how I ended up playing it.





Wow, doesn't look like much now-a-days. :lol Certainly brings back some fond memories though! <3

Nintendo should have given wider distribution to those bonus Zelda discs which contained Zelda I, Zelda II, TOoT, and MM on a single GCN disc. A very nice package. I think I'll play with Zelda II on that disc as soon as my exams are over (or maybe 5 minutes tonight :D).

Cool. How many palaces have you cleared so far? I go for the hammer after the first palace. Those orange axe wielding alligators (the 70 XP ones) have a certain rhythm you have to pace yourself to in order to start slashing away at them.

Not going to happen.


Also, I hear Military Madness got some sort of update, I don't have the game but for anyone else that does you might want to check into that and see if it's real.

I guess you go to the shop and there should be a button that says "update." (that's what the shop channel FAQ says anyway) Like I said I don't have MM so I don't actually know.

Yeah, that's the procedure... You end up downloading the whole game again. I did it, but I can't tell what's changed. My save state was undisturbed.

Somebody on GameFAQs said the Update got rid of the sound glitches/skipping that occured in the later, bigger levels when you scroll through the battlefield. I updated this morning because apparently my roommate had stopped playing the game for that reason.

Excellent - so is this the first instance of a VC title being updated? Good to know that at least one publisher is willing to use it to fix problems, and I'd hope we may actually see it correcting issues like Memory Pak support further down the line...
