"How could we possibly appreciate the Mona Lisa if Leonardo had written at the bottom of the canvas: 'The lady is smiling because she is hiding a secret from her lover.' This would shackle the viewer to reality, and I don't want this to happen to 2001." - Stanley Kubrick
Kid Icarus is another one of those games I just never got a chance to play. I always had friends telling me how great it was, but I never picked it up for whatever reason. This will be 500 points well spent.
Well, I think anyone who has followed the Wii threads know how I feel about Kid Icarus FINALLY coming to the VC. Be warned though as the game is very hard, especially the final level. I think I remember using the Game Genie to beat it the first time around.
And yes, please keep doing these threads about the VC if you can. I don't get to the Wii every night/week, but now I'm making a beeline over there very soon.
Kid Icarus and Wii-Play coming out...I love you Nintendo!
I don't know if this merits its own thread, but has anyone checked out the new Everybody Votes channel yet? I haven't tried it - I saw there was something this morning, but I left it because I find the blue glow so delightful - but apparently it's a new channel where you get to vote on polls submitted by other users. It sounds so stupid and yet I have a feeling that I'll think it's great.
Originally posted by The King of KeithI'm still waiting for Blaster Master to be released on the VC. I don't know if it will be, because it was a Sunsoft game and I don't even know if they are still in business.
According to this site (wii.qj.net) Sunsoft is a VC supporter. I think Sunsoft is still in business in Japan.
Not sure I buy the entire "Gamestop is DOOMED" rhetoric - there are those who still prefer to buy hardcopy versions of games. How does this differ from the creation of the Wii Shop, the Xbox Marketplace and the Playstation Store?
