Sorry for the double post, but I think what I want right now is a game like Jungle Beat. Easy to pick up, allows for short sessions, and most importantly.. is just pure fun. I've said it before, but Jungle Beat was the most pure, unadulterated fun I had last generation, and I'm craving that right now. I'm more or less done with epic and tedious games - hopefully Tokyo EAD has started on something else already.
And also, for me a major test will be F-Zero Wii. GX was one of my top three GameCube games (maybe even my favourite one), and it's easily one of my favourite games ever. If the Wii version evokes the same feelings for me as SSBB did, then I'll be really disappointed. With Brawl, the new features and extras and all that were incredible for sure... but I didn't feel like it was a big enough jump. Obviously it's hard to mess with that formula, but from SSB64 to Melee the jump was huge. And it didn't help that I far enjoyed the quicker pace of Melee to the sluggish one of Brawl.
But anyway, hopefully Amusement Vision makes F-Zero again, and I get that same rush of adrenaline that I did in GX.
Wow, that was my first rant in a long time. And it wasn't very coherent - sorry about that.
