  1. Don't worry, they're complete stories, the first and second prime are the reason we reach Metroid Prime 3 basic circunstances, so there are tie-ins, but that's all in the past for MP3, it won't require you to know the previous ones, or try to tell that in detail for those who missed it.


    Okay, thanks. I had hoped as much. :)

  2. It officialy is the power of the console that lets it down the most.


    But that isn't something I really care about. I think wii golf and tennis are beautiful games as they are.


    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?

  3. 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.

  4. Uhmmm it seems you changed your mind?


    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.

  5. I've never played the original Kid Icarus but I love this new song!! Very tongue-in-cheek.


    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?

  6. Just wondering...


    What are the exact conditons for fouling a player, thus giving them an item? How can it be avoided?


    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.

  7. Problem 1 would seem to me be about the 50Hz/60Hz, I can't think of anything else which would affect it.


    Problem 2, check the Nunchuks connection to the Wiimote, and make sure it doesnt occassionally slip out slightly when the wire is pulled, goes back in, and resets the default position.


    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.





    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.

  8. 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.
