A week early I know but I figure no one still plays and I had to brag that I finished my museum (using 2 codes for some paintings) and have over 400 pieces of useless furniture and all the papers To those who have ceased playing but need an excuse to start again they found a way for you to get Punch Out. Click Here (drimple.net)
I've caught all the fish, got all the dinosaur skeletons, and am missing just one insect (I was so close too; the darner dragonfly was just inches from my net before flying offscreen, and now I find out that they only come out during the July/August months so I'm gonna have to wait ANOTHER WHOLE YEAR to catch one!!!) ... Also, if anyone here subscribes to/has access to Nintendo Power Magazine, they've been giving out codes over the last several months for some rare items (Starman, a working Bullet Bill, the flag pole from SMB1); no old NES games yet, but I'm still holding out hope
The flagpole makes the little sound effect from the game (you know the one) when you "activate" it, but - sadly - the flag itself doesn't move and there are no fireworks
The Bullet Bill is great, though; once you fire the cannon, ol' Bill shoots out and compresses himself into the wall (no real explosion, but still kinda freaky to look at) ... I'll leaf through my old Nintendo Powers when I get home from work, then post the codes here.
My wife still plays this every day -- she's working on getting her bank account up via fishing, and our 3 month old loves watching it (of course, she heard enough of the music while in the womb).
I still play it a few times a week, but not every day. We still haven't gotten near everything unlocked, but we're getting there slowly but surely This is easily the best value we've ever gotten on a game, period.
So, I got my first issue of Computer Gaming Monthly after signing up for a free subscription back whenever. So far I haven't gotten any extra junk mail sent to the name I used for the subscription, but the magazine sucks.
