Nintendo Gaming / Square/EA is gone now.

Dude dont worry, I honestly cant see it making a rats arse of difference. It's not like Enix of America was a very big or talented company.
Your just getting paranoid mate.

Nintendo Gaming / Are you satisfied with your Cube at the moment?

TalkBack / Zelda Bonus Disc Comes to Europe

Off topic for the last time you say Nintendo of Australia NAL Nintendo Australia Limited. It just makes it less confusing. Heck check their crappy website. They refer to themselves as Nintendo Australia not Nintendo of Australia. NOA on the other hand refer to themsleves as Nintendo of America.

Anyway I'm going to wait for the offical word from NAL before I get excited over this. I bet they over price the game to $110 bucks like they did with RE because it includes 2 disks.

As for your white lie gaining their press releases, do you think that if I say I'm from GBA Network Australia (which I am) they'll send them to me too?

Somehow though I doubt their press releases will be much special. I imagine it would just be release dates, promo shite and stuff like that.

General Chat / Evangelion
« on: February 13, 2003, 10:43:09 PM »
*scribbles note to self, note reads: "Never bring up anime subject around people who have watched every anime on the planet"*
Seriously Evangelion is the only anime I've ever watched and I thought the series was very cool but that End of Evangelion was a kinda crappy ending. There were three things about it that really ticked me off.
1. When Gendo shot Risuko. You have him saying "The truth is ............." BANG! I was so pissed of that you didn't get to hear what he had to say.
2. All the psycological crap towards the end, the movie just went downhill the straight after Misato died.
and 3. Why the hell was Shinji strangling Auska at the very end when they were lying on the beach?

Death and Rebirth was friggin awesome but End of Evangelion wasn't.

Nintendo Gaming / Ultimate GCN Games List

Aha so it does the same thing crazi taxi does. Needs 4 blocks for the save file but doesn't save over that file unless there are another 4 spare blocks on the card.

geez i was worried just as you said that post before. We'd be missing you for sure but your not leaving anymore so all is good.
Anyway the cricket is on now, I cant believe Symonds is actually making some runs, personally I dont know how he got into the team but it wold seem he's helping Australia make a somewhat respectable score against Pakistan. But I hope some other country wins the world cup, not australia. I'ld like to see the Windies win, or Canada!

and yes there do seem to be a lot of sydney ppls here.

I dont read Nintendo Gamer anyway, silly magazine IMO. But the latest Hyper is coming out soon. Well it should be out now, I'll have to buy it.

Pst, Evilmanman (or can I say your real name Dan?)  These guys wont know what we;re tlaking about when we referr to the TEE, Only WA is disabled enough to use the system.

Yeah actually speaking of Art classes. There's a girl in my class (well she would have to be, I'm the only guy) who is doing TEE art and non TEE art. Basically that means of her 6 possible subjects 2 of them are art. That's 7 and a half hours of art at school a week. I could never do that. I only really chose to do easy art (non TEE) as a break from subjects such as Intro Calc and Physics

Anyway how about we all go by real names here? They're just shorter and easier to remeber than our usernames
yeah my real names Roland

Nintendo Gaming / Offical 2002 Game Of The Year Nominees
« on: February 05, 2003, 12:38:27 AM »
Based on the number of nominations alone I think we can confidently say that Metroid Prime will win game of the year and just about every other catagorie it's in.

What i think is stupid is how GTA: Vice City could be nominated for the character and storyline award. I mean WTF, does it even have a storyline? It deserves every other nomination it get's though and I hope it's succesful.

Why was the original GTA 3 boycotted?

Ok I'm sorry about that Americans, I didn't really mean to offend anyone. I guess it was just adding an Australian feel to the thread, or somthing.
Anyway Game_Freak and Infernal Monkey better get their thin old razor arse in here. I also sent a message to Evilmanman, a guy from my town and who's posting in these forums again because he hated the ads of Ezboard.
Anyway yeah. How's everyone coping with school and stuff.

Um yeah so why the hell cant we have our own thread? We basically hijacked that Nintendo Australia thread in the old forums to be a general chat.
So how's everyone doing back at school?
I'm doing ok myslef. I'm doing Intro Calc, Geography, English, History, Physics and Art. lol. I'm the only guy in our art class of 16. It's great.
So yeah, how's everyone else going back at the hell hole?

Yes I had a suspison that Nintendo Europe was big in Germany what with the german flag all over the international section of It was ounce a super power you know. That was until WW1.
I'm sorry for my arrogance, I just went back to school and what do you know, I chose Geography and History for two of my TEE subjects.

Please be more specific.

Nintendo Gaming / Metroid Prime 2

Nintendo of Australia are quite hopeless. Dropping bombs like this without telling anyone. tch tch tch tch tch. They still have Animal Crossing on their release list too. I have a feeling they are just gonna adjust the holidays and flip the seasons and bring the game out here.

Nintendo Gaming / So Rayman is a time exclusive?
« on: February 04, 2003, 03:10:08 AM »
It's not illegal! When they advertise it it is only for Xbox. They dont advertise it as exclusive now that it's on other consoles. Also notice that any restock of Hunter: The Reckoning for Xbox was missing the "Only On" stamp.
Anyway Devil May Cry was originally a one year time exclusive for PS2 but it would seem Capcom couldn't be stuffed porting it.

Nintendo Gaming / Gameboy E-book Reader

How about reading a real book? Seriously who reads e-books?

Nintendo Gaming / GBA SP
« on: February 03, 2003, 11:33:43 PM »
Well i dont have all the snes games i've ever wanted to own so NER! No but really I can see the idea they are using here with the port philosiphy. You see there would be roughly 3 times as many gamers around today as tehre were in the SNES era. And many of those people never got to play the SNES classics and would gladly pay full price for a great Zelda or Mario game of yesturyear. And at the same time Nintendo dont have to put much effort into these ports to make a quick buck. i honestly cant blame them.

And the GBA SP has no more RAM. None!

Yeah right you were hired by them. I mean for starters it HTLOZ not HTWOZ. Heck i bet you dont even know what HTLOZ stands for! (Hyrule the Land of Zelda)

Suprise Rick! You said you were looking for a a person that lives in Europe and Germany just so happens to be a european country! Also guys get a map out. No not a crappy map, get Peter's Projection or a globe of the world. That's right guys. Australia is enormas. I can imagine if I get the job. You guys ring me up "Roland, Ben's sick and we need you to be at EA Gold Coast's press event, it starts tomorrow at 2:30pm" Of course I guess it's not your fault that I have to then make a 4 hour flight to get to Brisbane and then catch a train or something I dont God-damn know to get to the Gold Coast.
Please be more specific in where you need these Europeans and Australians.
For a helping hand, just about all Aussie game developers, or at least all those worth a crap reside in Melbourne. This includes NAL's headquaters. Where i live, on the other side of the continent, is near the biggest port in Australia and a warehouse of Nintendo goods (Fremantle)

Nintendo Gaming / Im waiting for...
« on: February 03, 2003, 04:07:26 AM »
Hey Evilmanman is on the new forums! hurrah!
Yes as for the timeline it would appear that in the many hundreds of years that passed between Zelda: Ocarina of Time and Zelda: A Link to the Past it would appear that the Gorons, Hylians, Gerudo, Sheikah and Kokiri have all died out, with only the (mutated) zora's remaining. Yes I said Hylians because that old sage person says that the Hylians lived long ago and died out. That's why Link can't read their old writing without the book of Mudora. (spelling?) This also raises questions as to what race Link actually is. If I recall in Link's Awakening all the character art of the island inhabitants featured them with round ears. Yet there are still decendants of the sages...
Speaking of the sages the land of hyrule became a very sexist community in LttP. The Goddesses are refered to as 'Gods' and the sages 'wise men'.

But all this really shows that the timeline makes now sense. Metroid was making sense until a certain 3D installment changed all that.

Nintendo Gaming / GCN Games List - Memory Card blocks
« on: February 03, 2003, 03:12:06 AM »
Star Wars: Rogue Leader - 3 Blocks for 6 files.
Crazi Taxi: 4 Blocks for 4 files (needs 4 free blocks on card to save data over)
Super Monkey Ball also needs 3 blocks free to save.

I'm assuming the reason those games need those free blocks is because they create a duplicate of the save infomation and delete the old one. It would be interesting to find out how the game saves the data.
I think we should mark all known games that need extra blocks to save data with an asterix or something.

Nintendo Gaming / GBA SP
« on: February 03, 2003, 03:03:58 AM »
There wont be any SP exclusive games. It's like how the GB Pocket was basically a slimmer, improved version of the original Gameboy but not technically supierior.

What do you mean their running out of old games to port? I could name about 15 SNES games that I never owned that I would buy for GBA. And what do you mean there running out of ideas? I'm sorry but I must've missed the game that Kuru Kuru Kururin copies and I dont know where Nintendo came up with that e-card reader. And then theres the motion sensor games. There's plenty of promise there (but theres the compatibility issue...)

And the mobile phone gaming things wont stand a chance. I mean are you looking forward to Snake 3 or something?

Nintendo Gaming / So Rayman is a time exclusive?
« on: February 03, 2003, 02:30:53 AM »
yeah it's worked really well for Microsoft. I mean who bought Hunter: the Reckoning for cube? No one. But plenty of Xbox owners have it. Rayman 3 looks promising indeed, I might at least give it a rent.

Nintendo Gaming / Final Fantasy 3 on Game Boy Advance?

As for GBA, I'd rather they not port FFVI again because of the audio quality.  The GBA isn't quite as powerful as the SNES so there will certainly be sacrifices made.
With all the speech and stuff the GBA pumps out in Nintendo's SNES ports you'ld think it has a better sound card. And then you compare these voices to those in Super Metroid and Street Fighter 2 (The only SNES games I can remember with voice acting off the of of my head) and you'ld be certain that it's got a better sound card. Prehaps you could enlighten us in which one is really superior?

Guys, the only difference between a typical laptop screen and that in the GBA is that the GBA screen has a SCREEN PROTECTOR covering it.  Considering the rough use most GBAs go through, this is a Good Thing.  
Goddammit I knew that I was hoping to be the smart arse to say it first too. Damn you staffers! The GBA SP actually needs this protective plastic over the LCD screen this time around because otehrwise the lights shining on the screen will be out in the open and at the mercy of the world. If they had a bare LCD screen then it would had to be actually back-lit and the power comsumption would be enornmas.

One thing that got me thinking abot the GBA SP however is the fold over thing. Do you think that because it folds over the buttons and crosspad might scratch or leave marks on the screen? I say this because the keyboard of Dad's fancy titanium plated PowerBook will actually leave marks on the screen unless he keeps a thin piece of cloth over the keyboard when folding it up. That said the screen protector (as we will now forever call the firm piece of plastic over our GBA screens) should be tought enough to not be damaged and wiped clean is such a thing does occur.
