  1. Metroid Prime 3: Corruption

    Okay, thanks. I had hoped as much.
  2. Metroid Prime 3: Corruption

    I really consider buying this game, but seeing as I haven't played any of the other Metroid games (apart from the Hunters demo that came with the DS), I'm afraid I will not be able to follow the plot. What do you guys think?
  3. Whats the worst thing about the Wii?

    Problem is, it keeps superficial, narrow-minded players and (even worse) developers away. Some do try, but not very hard. It seems like many people still see the Wii as a gimmick, and even Microsoft has said that "when kids get older they would want a real console". There you have it. The Wii is not a real console. It's just something for the kids. The cool kids have either got a 360 or a PS3. Can you see what I'm at?
  4. Super Smash Bros. Brawl (Spoilers Topic)

    It sure is mine!
  5. Super Smash Bros. Brawl (Spoilers Topic)

    On the contrary, I think this item is very cool! Especially since my friends and I often use the Reflector.
  6. Whats the worst thing about the Wii?

    The thing I hate most about the Wii right now is the fact that I have to wait till FRICKIN' 2008 for Brawl! Other than that, I miss some good games. We're still waiting for the big sellers from Nintendo (Galaxy, Prime, Brawl etc.) and have so for a long time now. Add to that the fact that third party developers haven't realized the Wii's amazing potential yet. Let me sing a song about how I feel: How many games does it take till they know that the Wii is a box full of fun? How many years dare they wait till they know their chance with the Wii is long gone? How many faults from the big S do they need before they come out in the sun? The answer my friend is blowing in the wind - the answer is blowing in the wind.
  7. Super Smash Bros. Brawl (Spoilers Topic)

    Sheesh ... This game was definitely meant for desperate, horny, girlfriend-needing, porn-watching video game nerds.
  8. Super Smash Bros. Brawl (Spoilers Topic)

    Nope, I never played Kid Icarus for the NES, which is why I want to download it. However, the second game in the series, Kid Icarus: Of Myths and Monsters for the Game Boy, was my very first video game, which is why Pit holds a special place in my heart. Plus, he is simply awsome in Brawl, now even more with his Final Smash, which fans of the series will enjoy even more.
  9. Super Smash Bros. Brawl (Spoilers Topic)

    Same goes for me, never played it either. Though when I get around to start downloading VC games, Kid Icarus is on my list. A question for other Kid Icarus fans: Can you "find" the Game Over and Reaper themes in today's composition?
  10. Mario Strikers Charged Football

    That might perfectly well be so. I haven't really checked it.
  11. Super Smash Bros. Brawl (Spoilers Topic)

    Yay, Kid Icarus! The second game, Of Myths and Monsters, was my first ever video game, so today's update brings back memories.
  12. Mario Strikers Charged Football

    When you hit a player that DOESN'T have the ball at the time, he gets an item. It doesn't matter if you use a regular steal or a big hit.
  13. Super Smash Bros. Brawl (Spoilers Topic)

    Come to think of it, I think you're right. I forgot about item updates. Stage updates are a bit more interesting - sometimes.
  14. Official Issues and Problems Thread

    PROBLEM #1: Okay, thanks. PROBLEM #2: Hey, it has actually done that a few times. That could also explain why the problem seemed to stop after I switched around my two Nunchuks and Wiimotes, since I think it's primarily the one Wiimote that's a little lose in the connection. Thanks. Now I don't need to go buy a new Nunchuk. ---------- EDIT: Come to think of it, the 50Hz/60Hz thing can't entirely be the explanation for my clock problem. I didn't know about 60Hz the first period of time I had my GameCube, but I'm very sure I experienced the same problem anyway. If anyone else has a possible explanation, please let me know.
  15. Super Smash Bros. Brawl (Spoilers Topic)

    Stages are probably the most boring of the updates, if you ask me.
  16. Super Smash Bros. Brawl (Spoilers Topic)

    Gatoman > Yeah, videos are what we long for.
  17. Official Issues and Problems Thread

    Hey, everybody. I'm pretty new to these forums, and I have a few problems I wanted to ask you guys about. ---------- PROBLEM #1: Clock Problem My Wii's internal clock is too fast. It's not noticeable on short periods of time, but after a while it has gotten ahead of the actual time. Today, I checked the clock and it was about 10 minutes ahead of the actual time. The funny thing is, my GameCube had exactly the same problem. I'm from Denmark, and so our standard electrical frequency is 50Hz. I usually run games on both my Wii and GameCube in 60Hz, and so my questions are: QUESTION #1: Has the fact that I'm running games in 60Hz when the standard electrical frequency here in Denmark is 50Hz anything to do with the fact that both my Wii's and my GameCube's internal clocks are going too fast? QUESTION #2: If not, what can the source of the problem be? QUESTION #3: And finally, what can be done about the problem? ---------- PROBLEM #2: Nunchuk Problem All Nintendo fans knows the problem: If the Control Stick is held in another position than its starting position when starting up a game, that position becomes locked as the neutral position. All it takes to reset the position is letting go of the Control Stick and holding down a few of the buttons for a number of seconds (on the Wii: A, B, +, and - for 3 seconds). Now, my problem is that the Control Stick on one of my Nunchuks has started locking its position mid-game, some times rather frequently. It's quite annoying when playing Mario Strikers Charged Football online, where you can't pause the game and where you're constantly set back because you're unable to control anything the 3 seconds it takes to reset the Control Stick. The reason may be that the same Nunchuk hit the edge of a table pretty hard once, although I can't say for sure that's the reason. QUESTION #1: Could it be the previously mentioned, not-so-careful treatment of my Nunchuk that has caused this problem? QUESTION #2: If not, what could then be the reason? QUESTION #3: Is there anything to be done about the problem and if so, what? ---------- I thank you for your time and help in advance.

    Hi, guys. New face on the forums. I like the look of Ike's special moves. They are obviously based to some degree on Marth and Roy's special moves, but they are new and fresh in their own rigth.
