I highly doubt GC backwards compatibility is a major part of why it's selling so bad. It has Wii backwards compatibility, which for most people is much more worthwhile.

The main issue is Nintendo tried to make a Wii 2. they tried to sell it based solely off of the controller again(Despite their PR statements saying otherwise), and that was not enough.

It included an IR sensor, obviously, and likely a CPU or microcontroller as well.

Well, the gamecube apparently sold 21.74 million systems... So it's not impossible. The GC did make a profit, but it had cheaper hardware(I still don't get how the Wii U is being sold for a loss. My guess is Nintendo did not make very good manufacturing deals).

To be fair, the Xbone's been out for six months.

Yeah, you can't really compare a PS2 and PSP. the PSP could handle PS2 ports but only if they were simple games to begin with or if they were cutdown(In some cases, both).

Tegra 3 has 4 cores, and that makes up for the sheer work per clockcycle difference between it and the Core 2 Duo... In this one test. For most things? No. Emulation especially.

This is a nice complement to Feminine Fantasy, which also adds some bug fixes and stuff.

The anti-Semitic fliers being passed around were just some racist assholes trying to stir up trouble, it's been found. No connection to Russia's government(For once).

Well, it's unenjoyable. I can say that much about it, even after trying the co-op. And it doesn't get better.
This game is mediocre, and translating kusoge isn't exactly a popular thing... Tales of the Tempest non-withstanding.
However Bandai redeemed themselves with that Wonderswan Color SoM clone of theirs (Star Hearts). It's quite decent.

I betaed Tales of the Tempest.

Yes, it does. The GC is basically used as a boot loader and a video/audio output.

Storytelling is an insanely complex subject with no one right approach to it.

Like, there's the Deus Ex: Human Revolution approach, there's the Fallout New Vegas approach, there's the Final Fantasy 13 approach, there's the Portal 2 approach, there's the Borderlands 2 approach, etc etc etc etc etc.

Of course it is possible. If it is not, unfortunately, you have married the wrong person. :P

You're never going to enjoy every single one of the activities your spouse does or vice versa. That doesn't mean you must give them up. In any healthy marriage there should be time for him/her to do their thing and for you to do yours. In addition, often times each may partake in something they don't like for awhile in order to spend time with and out of respect for the other. You also grow each others interest. Maybe your spouse will never enjoy a particular type of game, but there are many types of games. After enough exposure it's likely you will find some middle ground that the two of you may enjoy for awhile.

I am currently married and have years of relationship experience. I also happen to know a number of girls whom will play video games. They are out there. :)

All I can really say is, is that pretty much anybody I marry has to be at least willing to let me game some portion of the time. I don't actually play games much nowadays(though lately i've been playing New Vegas), I do a lot of little things.

I say this as a woman who games. We exist, and we don';t really ever want to give up the hobby either.

Ah, I did not know that.

That's beyond the scope of what I set out to do with this patch, but I'm not entirely opposed to the idea. I do agree that the amount of inconsistencies and gratuitous Japanese is atrocious. I didn't bother me when I played this way back when, but now it's irksome, to say the least. However, I think this script needs more than a simple search-and-replace. A fair scrubbing is in order.

Sorry, I didn't see this topic got any replies until just now.

Really, just a find and search would work well enough for me. Yeah, a scrubbing would definitely be best, but a find and replace for all of the inconsistencies and random Japanese suffixes is enough effort for a game that wasn't really all that well written, anyway. All IMO of course.

He was crossing the street when he was hit by a car. There's a possibility he'd still be alive but I kinda doubt it.

Edit: also the Wii U can play Wii games, so I dunno what you're talking about with BC. Yeah Gamecube stuff doesn't work even though it shouldn't be too much of an issue but ehhhhhhhh the GC was 11 years old when the Wii U came out.

Heavily Modded Fallout New Vegas, I'm on Honest Hearts, though I am taking a break.

Done. FWIW, next time, send in a correction. You can edit anybody's entries, and the staff will approve(or disapprove) if the edit is good.

We've had it for a while, actually, but it was put as a hack rather than a translation.

I do wish someone would go in and clean up the text. The game's text isn't consistent at all(Calls the super special crystal Sailor Moon always carries around by two or three different names, amongst other things). Puts a stain on one of the few non-grindy as fuck SNES rpgs that were not made by Square.
