    Yeah, the Mega Man flood gates opened up in 2000 and across platforms and series there were 25 Mega Man games released by 2008.

    Gamevoices: Do you have an anecdote from any games vo you have done?

    MR: The real hilarious stuff comes AFTER the recording! The fan mail I receive is ridiculously funny.
    I have been asked 'Did you know Princess Rosalina was a lesbian when you voiced her?"
    and "What did you wear when you recorded her?" And many more letters not fit to print!

    Wait, there's only 7 scenes in the Punch-Out! section? Boo.

    This is a fun game; the base games are a bit more fun than the last collection.

    But some of them seem too short. Punch-Out doesn't even reach anyone in the Major Circuit, for example.

    Yeah, I get that, but some of them really do well at hitting the notes up to the end of the game. Kid Icarus and Metroid, for example.

    Though, Kid Icarus could also stand to be longer. At least it ends on a boss fight.

    Picked up that AC 4 game today at Best Buy. Ridiculous deal really. Question is if I should bother to start with AC 1/2 or just start at the Wii U titles I have, 3 and 4?

    If you think you'd care about the overarching fiction (which is really cool), it's worth playing through the series up to this point. Revelations can be skipped, as not a whole lot happens in it.

    If you just want awesome pirate action, just start with IV

    I think I'm missing brotherhood actually, but I have the rest on the 360. I noticed 3 had a big 'catch up' story bit when my son played it though, thus why I wondered if the previous games were worth the investment. I heard bad things about 1 mostly.

    1 is repetitive as hell, but I still find it pretty fun personally

    2 is amazing, Brotherhood was the best for a long while until Black Flag came along

    Revelations...eh

    3 has a ton of frustration but I've come to appreciate it more in retrospect

    I played the heck out of Wario's Woods when I had it in Animal Crossing on GCN, in fact I would load up AC just to play WW for a couple hours. It's really not that hard if you have about 20 minutes to get used to it first. If NES Remix 2 is your first time seeing the game, I can imagine it being tricky. But if you think about it - you are controlling Toad, and the only other time you control Toad on NES is in SMB2, and so the lifting/placing/throwing stuff is easier to wrap your head around if you think about the game as an SMB2 spin-off.

    I ended up getting rainbows for all the Wario's Woods stages tonight anyway. I still don't feel like I'm any good at it. I can see that it's a pretty unique and cool match game though.

    One thing I really like about NES Remix 2 that I'm surprised more people aren't talking about, is the fact that you can watch replays of people who posted on Miiverse as well as your previous best times. Very cool.

    Yes this is one of my favorite new features I think. Probably the only way I could beat some of the Punch Out! crap because I don't know shit about how to play that game. I should probably actually do the challenges for that one...

    Barba has been Volvagia for a long time - I want to say since Zelda 2 was on Wii VC or something. Barba has always been a bad translation (japanese name: Barubajia - same reason they fucked up "Varia Suit" which should have been "Barrier Suit"). So I'm ok with that. OoT fixed it and then they retroactively went back and fixed Zelda 2.

    Granted, Kuribo's Shoe (and Jugem's Cloud) are also wrong (not even bad translations - they are NOT translated). But those items don't ever really show up again in other Mario games, so it's sad :( Actually, I still don't know why Mario enemies were translated so WILDLY different from their Japanese names. Like, they aren't even translations - they just made up brand new, nonsensical names for everything in SMB1. (seriously, where the hell did they pull "Lakitu" out of "Jugem"?)

    With only $10.5 billion dollars in the bank they could take losses in the millions every year and it wouldnt be a problem for another 40 or so years give or take.

    In light of that, losing money every year this console generation until they decide what they are going to do next means absolutely nothing to them financially.

    Let's not forget the "Noknok" Shell in Mario RPG, coming from not translating "Nokonoko" to "Koopa", as is usual.

    Which itself is a weird translation, since Bowser is "Koopa", which is a reference to a dish called "Gukbap".

    It's not like six posts amidst countless others talking about other things.

    My worst fear is starting to come to true... My gamepad's buttons are getting sticky. With an 11 month old and house full of people who don't wash their hands before touching controllers... I'm actually surprised it lasted this long.

    Yeah, I've had a bad run with my GamePad. Original got stolen. Replacement had sticky/creaky analogue stick which I sent in for repair last Dec. By Feb the replacement started to get sticky/creaky again.

    It's frustrating for me as it's not a clear-cut issue. I can still use it, but compared to my Pro Controller and my previous GamePad, the joysticks feel wrong. It's quite annoying.

    The core problem is the GamePad is a very expensive controller with no easy replacement options. I remember having a few issues with my GameCube controllers and I would just buy another one. The old one might get pulled out for multiplayer at some point.

    With the GamePad, once it goes bad you've got to send it in for repair. This means...
    - the system partially useless (i.e. some games work, but things like the eShop don't)
    - If you get Nintendo to pay for postage, you still need to pay for packaging, fill out the forms, find the proof of purchase, etc.
    - If the issue is 'not a manufacturing fault' there's a $50AU appraisal fee.
    - it's not a certainty the problem will go away. (as in my case)

    They won't sell me a replacement either. It's repair or nothing.

    So after trying to get used to it, I'm gonna send it back in and see if I get a solution.

    I'm a bit bummed out about it TBH. I've played my Wii U much less this year because of it.

    Regret, I know the place is fairly pro-Nintendo, but your post history is showing that all you're really here to do is troll people.

    I recommend against that course of action if you wish to remain here for long.
