    Well, GB Video's already doomed here. Do NAL even know that Myer stopped stocking GameCube stuff last year? "Here have the exclusive rights to this GBA because you love us so much!" ='D

    But it's nice to see they've finally decided to throw the NES Classics at us, even though they'll charge too much (it is their destiny). And rock on to the fairly quick release of Paper Mario 2, Mario Pinball Land and especially Final Fantasy I & II. Usually RPG's take Square/Nintendo/Whatever six months ++

    According to a catalogue I saw, the NES Classics are meant to be going for AU$30.00 apiece. Not bad, but still far too expensive for games that were previously available for $5 on paper cards.

    MarioOctober 14, 2004

    $30? Not bad indeed. face-icon-small-shocked.gif

    Also it appears we're NEVER getting Four Swords Adventures.

    Infernal MonkeyOctober 14, 2004

    Ahahaha yeah. Convert a Zelda game to PAL? NEVERS. $30 is pretty good considering I was seriously expecting NAL to charge like $50-$60 for them. But yeah. I have Excitebike and DK on e-Reader and the NES version of Pac-Man's not even worth $2. I'll grab SMB, though. =o

    Hey, what? Where'd Minish Cap go? O_o

    Ian SaneOctober 14, 2004

    I'm pretty impressed you guys get Metroid Prime 2 so soon after us. Same with Paper Mario 2.

    $30 for the NES Classics is about on par with what we pay here in Canada. It's still a total rip-off though since none of the titles are obcure or hard to find in a cheaper format and most of the arcade ports have since the NES days been made available in superior arcade perfect ports.

    At least Zelda makes for a nice, cheap gameplay experience if you didn't have an NES...

    Or a Gamecube. face-icon-small-smile.gif

    I didn't get that Zelda Collector's disk... Also, portability is a big bonus.

    And yet Europe is. Brilliant, eh?

    ProcessionOctober 16, 2004

    Well, we did get Animal Crossing a year before Europe.

    You'd think Zelda be popular enough to release here. ZELDA but apparently not.
