I've never really been into handheld gaming, but I did receive a GBA from my parents as a birthday present. Unfortunately, my ownership of it coincided with one of my waves of antipathy towards gaming. The only GBA games I recall owning were Super Mario Advance, WWF: Road to Wrestlemania, Chu Chu Rocket, and one of the Tony Hawk's games.
Which I think we can all agree, proves I had impeccable taste.
That's partially why I'm so bummed out that GBA games seemingly aren't coming to 3DS. I was hoping the 3DS would offer what the Wii did: access to classic games that I missed the first time 'round. I lapped up the ambassador games (all of which were new to me) and was very much looking forward to more of the same. I'd love to play Metroid: Zero Mission, or Golden Sun, or any of the great games in that platform's catalogue. I'm just not willing to buy a Wii U in order to do it.
I didn't think it was possible, but Nintendo's approach to Virtual Console on 3DS makes even less sense than it did on Wii. Not offering classic handheld Nintendo games on the relatively new and popular Nintendo handheld just makes zero sense to me.
In fact, things should be going in the other direction. Give me Earthbound on my 3DS!!
I wish it weren't so blatant. But you're welcome.
You're editing skills are beyond reproach. It wasn't blatant at all, but when you listen to enough RFN you get a sense of when Mr Jones is winding up to lampoon a game...
which, from what I've seen of that game, it more than deserves.
