Goemon 3 is probably my favorite retro title this year so far. Getting all these translated is absolutely fantastic, and congrats to DDS/Tom/FlashPV for getting them done!

Very interesting! I am curious, however, as to how Lonzo Ball manages a 7 in three-point shooting...

Whoa, this looks awesome.  Will give it a shot!

I haven't posted in some time, but I just wanted to say thank you very much for all your hard work on this translation.  It doesn't sound like there's anything crazy political here, so everyone should just sit back and enjoy a new Super Famicom RPG!

And Merry Christmas, everyone!

Nice!  I just imported a cart of Glory of Heracles IV, too!  Congrats on finishing this up!

I'd definitely be interested in seeing this happen, too.  I've still got my legit cart, but every extra game that works on the SD2SNES makes me smile.  :)

As far as the pause, originally I'd thought it was the S-DD1, but then realized that I'd seen other games have that long-ish pause as well, and it's always associated with the loading of a new music track and whatnot.  So yeah, it won't solve that particular issue.

Nope.  Still great.  Sometimes familiarity breeds contempt, though.  We lose sight of its greatness.  :)

I got my copy back in the day, used at a Software Etc.  Brother and I debated, he says "what if we never see it again", and we buy it.  Spectacular purchase in hindsight.  :)

Have they fixed it up to work on PSP again?  According to someone on another forum, it's supposed to work on there.

Speaking of scarcity, the one that shocked me was how much a complete, mint copy of TMNT: Tournament Fighters for NES goes for now.  $220 - $300?  Seriously?  Man, glad I held on to mine.

I'm not sure it was so much random as it was dependent on how much stuck on top of an enemy you were.  If you got hung up on them, it drained your meter like crazy, but if you hit it early and bounce off, it just consumes a little bit.  Chances are the only place you're going to use it is the Shadow Man fight, and his unpredictability is what leads to all the insane energy usage, especially if you're trying to get him off of you!

I definitely think a remake of Legacy of Darkness could be phenomenal.  There's a pretty good game in there, if you can get past the super-goofy controls.

I'm trying to think of fun-but-flawed games that I'd like to see fixed up.  I keep thinking about Black Sigil, but that really just needs bug fixes and a rebalance.  Well, an updated re-release would fix that, so I'll roll with that!

I haven't seen much mention of it in the reviews I've read, but did they fix up inventory management any?  That was one of my primary gripes in the original version.  You were always having to get rid of stuff, and as far as I'm aware there was nowhere to stash things.  So basically, you'd get a ton of unique healing items that don't stack, and those are the ones you'd generally throw away to hang on to accessories.  Not that most of the accessories were any good compared to the simple elemental guards, but there ya go.

Repros are just a part of the deal these days.  Not to mention there are flash carts and whatnot.  In fact, the latter is a good reason to try to make sure your work will work on real hardware.  I really like playing on the real system.  I haven't bit on a NES flash cart yet, although I've been tempted in the past.  I've got a SD2SNES, and I definitely love playing stuff on there, and am disappointed when things don't work properly.

Also, if you chain your work to a particular emulator, you're setting up for your work to potentially not work in the future as the authors try to improve the accuracy of emulation.

As to what I.S.T. said, you've got emulators like Nestopia that are quite accurate.  I generally have to keep stuff like FCE Ultra around to run hacks that don't behave on Nestopia because of the increased accuracy.

Is this the same engine as WCW Wrestling?  Looks really similar!

If I had more time, I'd definitely jump on board.  As it is, I'm really going to have to think about it.  I don't want to mess those guys up if I can't produce.

I did my transfer right there in the store.  Twice, even!  I got a 3DS XL, and returned since it had a dead pixel right smack in the middle of the screen.

Nintendo is clearly trying to generate some extra cash flow.  I don't see this as any different from the Wii Fit stuff, and I'll bet you they didn't sink a whole lot of time and money into the development of that.  Finding a niche product to keep you tickin' while your other products are floundering isn't a bad move.

I don't see any of this as a new direction at all.  It's definitely not a simple "either games or fitness" proposition.  I have no doubt we'll be playing Mario and Zelda and whatnot for quite a few years to come.

I gave this a shot, and yeah, it is indeed a really weird game.  Lots of different things going on.  It looks really pretty, though.  ;)  I shouldn't have booted up right before bed, though, my eyes were glazing over a bit with all the tutorial stuff.  :P

Awesome, gave this a try last night.

Also, one quick thing, I think the ROM size given in the documentation is that for the headered ROM, and it should be an unheadered ROM that you patch.

That was my thinking as well.  It's not so much the money, it's showing that, yes, we're taking this very seriously, and our own personal honor is at stake.

I've definitely heard good things about the "transforming" d-pad.  I just can't bring myself to spend the money on it.  ;)  I've had like five 360 controllers for a while now, thanks to the local closeout / salvage store.  I've also got one of those Afterglow third-party controllers, and while the rest of it really isn't up to snuff (the analogs are a little looser, the triggers are also a bit sketch), the d-pad is quite excellent.

Personally I was giggling in the "oh dear" manner.

That said I do consistently underestimate the position Nintendo has for quite a few people.

Oh, it was cheesy as all get-outs.  But at the same time...  yeah, Nintendo holds a lot of cachet for me.  So while I was outwardly cringing at the cheesy execution, my inner fanboy (such as it is) was happy as can be.  ;)

Isn't the d-pad on the GC controller basically the same size as the GBA one?  I'm guessing this is why I don't really have any problems with it.  I played a ton of Soul Calibur II on GC, and didn't have much trouble at all.  It's small, but it's pretty accurate, not the mushy mess that is a 360 controller, or the original XBOX controller (the Controller S was passable).
