This RetroActive's hard to pick for me.  I would pick Wario Land 4, but I don't have the game and it's not available on the 3DS Virtual Console.  I would pick Rogue Leader, but I don't have the game anymore and don't want to buy it again.  I've never liked Beyond Good & Evil; FAST is a WiiWare game; and I just don't have interest in Custom Robo.  I suppose of the 5, Wario Land is still the more interesting of the bunch to hear discussion about so I'll go with that.

Going to actually vote in this one. Casting my vote for Wario Land 4.  Hopefully it will drive me to play it so I can listen/post along with the others about it.

Custom Robo is one of my favorite games on the DS. I'd love to see a new entry in the series.

Hmmm, 

I think I have a Japanese copy of Wario 4 so I could play that, I played Rouge till my thumbs hurt back in the day so I can't pick that. I've always heard "magical" things about Beyond and I bought it in PSN when it was on sale and I have yet to play it. FAST... American Wii points are a bit difficult to find in Japan, plus it's never been on my radar, and like Broodwars said... it's a WiiWare game... Custom Robo does spark my interest and shouldn't be too hard to find.

After all that stalling.... I'll vote for Beyond G&E. That way I can work in my trophies :P

Cast my vote. And it's for a game I don't own, too. Looks like I'll be picking it up... should it win.

Suppose I should pick it up anyway...since I loved the GameCube one immensely. ;)

Tossing my vote against WarioLand 4.  I've played Rogue Leader to death (the reason I wanted a GC in the first place), and don't have the cash to buy any more games when I have WarioLand 4 sitting there unloved on my 3DS.

I wonder if it hold up after 10 years. It was the WOW OMG Gamecube graphics rule game back in 2001.


I really enjoyed the game allot too.

I'm gonna give my vote to custom robo ds.  I loved the GCN one.  I only got like 1/2 way through the DS one and would enjoy going back.  Great franchise IMO.  Hope it gets continued on 3DS.

My vote has gone to Warioland 4. The Warioland series has always been pretty unique among platformers, so I'd be interested to hear the thoughts of the RFN crew on 4. I never played this game prior to getting it as an ambassador but I've grown to love the level designs, with each new level offering something unique.

I voted for Rouge Leader because it was such a tossup between it and Killer 7 last time. Loved the hell out of that game.

I voted for Wario Land 4. I've tried to get into the series in the past, with no luck. When I play the first game, it doesn't save because the battery is dead. I also own Wario Land 3, but I'm not a huge fan of it. I own Wario Land 4 since I'm an ambassador though, so I'd love an excuse to play through it.

We all know I went with BG&E, but we also know it's not going to win.

I voted voted for BG&E, though Rogue Leader is a close second.

I voted for Custom Robo.

I really don't want to play Wario Land 4. I usually love those games, but this one just seems tedious and weird...

Custom Robo Arena.   Because it's portable, which I always favor when I can, and I don't want to pick a game (WarioLand 4) that not everyone has easy access to.  I'm an ambasador, but not every single person in the forums is.  Or are they?

Plus, it seems like these Retroactives are always better when the game is a bit Japanese and weird (as opposed to Nintendo-ish and weird)

Oh yeah, I know I have 2 sealed copies of that game.   1 is for trading.  But people who collect Amiibos?  They really have a problem!
