Metroid Prime 3 preview FREE for download on the shop channel today! I've never played any games in the series, but it looks pretty slick. Yay for downloadable content! Hopefully this is a sign of bigger things to come.



It says so right here in the wcw handbook!

Building up hype for Metroid Prime 3: Corruption's August 27th release, Nintendo has declared our eighth month as the "Month of Metroid," releasing a downloadable preview channel for the FPS/adventure title. As shown in the video we've embedded above, you can grab the preview from the Wii Shopping Channel's WiiWare section for free. Two streaming videos should be included with the download -- one a lengthy trailer, the other demonstrating gameplay -- as well as two hidden artwork samples. More videos will be made available this August 13th.

Also on August 13th, as we predicted, Nintendo plans to bring the original Metroid NES game to the Virtual Console for 500 points. Super Metroid fans can expect to see the SNES classic appear this August 20th, priced at 800 points. Coinciding Wii releases with their complementary retro titles seems like an obvious sales stratagem; we wonder what took Nintendo so long to catch on? Anyhow, we can't wait to see what else Nintendo has planned for this Metroid Month.

    fixed.

    I don't think the original game even came with a map


Actually the original did come with a map. I remember having my dad photocopy it so I can keep it in good condition and make my own notes on said copy.

It also had a gold cartridge, so I think i may have had the collectors edition.

I'm SUCH an idiot for selling it on eBay 10 years ago.

I have a question that's not worthy of a new thread. The A/V cord for the Wii also plugs into the Gamecube, right?

The reason I ask is because I have an old console TV (looking something like this)
that is comparable in picture size to the other TV in my house. It was made in 1983, and therefore has only a coax jack on it. If I were to get a GameCube RF Adapter, that should work for hooking the Wii up to there, right? I tried Google searching, but I couldn't find anything relevant.

I should really just get a new TV, but I'm cheap. Would hooking a Wii up with an RF adapter make the picture look really crappy?

No, it is a completely different hookup on the back of the Wii compared to the Gamecube (I just checked the Wii cables compared to the back of the Gamecube (My Wii is at my cousin's house) to make sure). I was hoping they would keep the same one that they had used since the SNES, but they didn't.

I think they were all gold. If you want one back, it looks like you can get one pretty cheap on eBay. Problem solved! :)
