I own the first two games on WiiWare but never picked up the third. I may just get this instead as I wouldn't mind getting a physical version of them.

Any idea if this will release with the extra cases that you could download as DLC on the WiiWare version? (Think there were also in the DS releases of the games).

General Chat / Re: All Things Netflix! Now With Original Programming!

Only 2 active streams at once is now being enforced.

It would be a nightmare for only 2 devices.

Up until last night, my Netflix was active on the following devices:
3 Computers
1 Smart TV
1 Smart Phone
3 Tablets
3 Wii
1 Wii U
1 Smart Bluray
1 Roku

being used by upto 6 different people at any given time.

now I'm down to:
2 Computers
1 Smart TV
1 Smart Phone
1 Tablets
1 Wii
1 Wii U
1 Smart Bluray
1 Roku

and only being used by 3 people. 2 streams should never be a problem again.

I feel like I've said this elsewhere, but they should do it like Apple with iTunes and allow you to authorize and de-authorize each device. I think Amazon does a similar thing for their cloud services.

Also a priority list. Say I have 10 devices for my family of 4 (hypothetical family, thankfully no kids yet for me!). I want MY tech to not be booted from Netflix. Set it up so that my wife and I get priority viewing and then the kids' devices get booted from active service when my wife and I are watching something.

So Dad's computer and Mom's phone get a higher priority than the kids' 3DS or iPad.

Make 'sub accounts log-ins' as well. I'd like to be able to ban individual children from using the service if they have been bad and also restrict mature content from the little guys. Also older kids could use a password to access the stuff of their age.

It could also teach them a lesson in internet security and safety if they give out a password to a sibling and I catch them. Some day I may hack into their emails (if possible and relevant) and change their passwords so they know the dangers associated with it.

I'm in the 'waiting for a price drop' group as well.

I liked the original so I like hearing it has similarities to it.

Deus Ex and Thief were but more fun to wander around in and explore than actually follow the plot.

There was some leaked 'test footage' that was similar in looks but completely out of tone from the original. I think it is one of Ancel's babies that Ubi just won't commit resources to complete.

I could easily see Nintendo snatching Ancel and getting a spiritual sequel going.

Heh. I read the name and thought it was Shedinja the ghost/bug monster they added as a playable character.

I was reeling for a minute.

I am growing more and more interested in this game as I learn more about it.

I'd like to hear a report of how Pirates! turned out on the Wii. I have the PC version but wouldn't mind the Wii one as well because I don't have it installed all the time on my computer.

This will be interesting. I rooting for Beyond Good & Evil but will be fine if Boom Blox wins out.

Thanks for making my Sunday morning so bright, guys.

Careful guys. All this collection-platformer talk could lead Nintendo to think we want Donkey Kong 64 2: Even more crap to collect!

I need to get the most recent expansion. I like what I have seen of it.

Interesting looking games. These are indeed curious times.

I agree with Shyguy, this may be a repeat of the post-16-bit/32-bit/pre-64 era. It was a strange time. My neighbor had an uncle who would get him a different system each time he visited and I remember playing 3DO, Saturn and Jaguar among other 'off brand' systems at his house.

After the initial wow factor wore off we ended up back at my house playing SNES and N64 games again. I expect that Nintendo will endure this time through the 'haze'. Though it probably won't be like the last outcome where we lost Sega and got the N64 out of it. I'm hoping for another 'Nintendo Renaissance Era' a decade from now.

They probably have only played the game pre-expansion. The expansions fixed a lot of the problems with the original game. Last I checked they had a demo for the first expansion. Would try it before judgment is cast on the entire game going forward, Rab.

There's an interesting feature: having games where the gamepad is just running the camera so that you can watch yourself play.

I hate that feature in Starfox 64 3D. People don't want to see the other persons face all contorted while playing.

I'm not gonna miss part of the movie or draw unneeded attention to myself by the staff. I'm a big black man, intimidation works well enough to quiet disrespectful punks. I'll even put a parent in check if they let their kids act up in the movie.
I'm not trying to get them banned from the theater, just want them to shut up and sit still while I'm trying to watch my movie. If that is too much for them to handle, then wait till it comes out on DVD and watch it at home.

Have you ever listened to 'The Mens Room'? It's a local Seattle radio show (you can stream it or download the podcast online, 99.9 KISW) and one of the guys is a black guy named Thrill. I always picture you sounding and looking like him because he seems to have a similar demeanor and humor to you. Except I can hear him and only read your posts.

It's funny when a white caller accuses them of being 'racist white men' for making comments about black folk and Thrill responds "You do know I'm black, right? I'm talking about my family there."

With how things are turning out I will not be able to host a game in the near future. My only window will be the next school break so I must pass  to the next player.

It's the Turbographix 16 box art that is keeping the sequel back.

Oh yeah, Mafia! Forgot all about that...

I still believe this is one of the greatest drinking games ever...just be sure to use protection like wrist straps and wiimote condoms if you want your TV to last the night.

Are you saying I need to resurrect my NWR stat thread? I haven't done an update in years...

I would be happy with it either way. Just get me the game!

Oh, that's available now? I'll have to remember to pick it up.

Hopefully we get more consistent updates from Phil than we've been getting from Lucarioboy's thread. I'm about to unbookmark his site from my list of web comics as he doesn't update it frequently enough.

They did it for the original game when they remade it for the DS. So there is a precedent and Nintendo does love to re-release/milk their older titles.

Half hope seems the appropriate level of hope so as I don't feel disappointed when it doesn't happen. Plus Ephraim is still my favorite lord in the series as the only lance wielding leder. We need more variety in FE leader's weapons. I was hopeful that the custom 'tactician' unit in Awakening would have weapon options. Maybe we'll get more choices in the next title.

Maybe each Smash can be based on your status. One outcome if you are low on health, one if you have full health.
