Yeah, it's amazingly large. That and maps in older Zelda games aren't necessarily to scale though they did a good job with them all things considered.

Wind Waker also had a really large game world, even if it was mostly water.

^ I noticed that doing the classic mode, all-stars, trophy hunts, etc really killed my buzz to keep playing.  It idd for Brawl anyways, and I really didn't want to get wrapped up in it here.  The AI plays a lot different from real players and I prefer the real opponents.  I got the characters, most of the [good] levels (which are kinda few since so many love employing some stupid/annoying gimmick and omega-stages just make levels boring), and honestly I'm pretty content with that.

Dice963 on Wii btw, join a few of us Fanners :)

I like to just get the playable character trophies at least. And I do enjoy most of the events in event mode. I won't be exhaustive in finishing all the challenges and getting all the trophies though.

Thanks for sharing your name! I'll be sure to add you when I get home today and I'll post mine in the ID thread.

Still playing the new Smash Bros. I just used a FAQ so that I could unlock all of the characters and stages. I have all the characters, and I just need to get Pac-Man's stage and I'll be done with that. Still plodding through Classic mode to get all of the playable character trophies though I still have a LONG way to go with those, not to mention the Final Smash trophies from All-Star mode.

Once I unlocked all the characters I went into event mode and played through a lot of them. I think I have all of the events completed on the left path, and I'm working my way through the right side. They're pretty fun little challenges. Though I kept getting annoyed at the Intruder Alert event with Falco and Mr. Game & Watch. I also kind of struggled with the Aura event with Lucario vs. invisible Wii Fit Trainer and Sheik. Other than that I haven't had any troubles.

I am slightly disappointed in the lack of an Adventure Mode. I admit that Subspace Emissary wasn't all that great, but I enjoyed the cohesion it gave much of the game and I actually did like the cheesy cutscenes. I miss those.

Favorite character right now is Lucina, but I haven't played enough with the others to really make a firm decision on my favorites. In Brawl they were Fox, Link, and Marth.

I finished up Egil's Saga today. It was really great, and very different. I bet a lot of scholarship has been written about this saga...

I did start reading Bellmaker, book 37 of 498 in the Redwall series. I've found the series mostly likeable enough so far though I really didn't care for Mariel of Redwall. It seemed too forced and contrived and I never really got the sense that I knew the characters all that well. Granted most of Jacques' characters in the Redwall books are pretty flat, but I found them especially so in Mariel of Redwall. Given that Bellmaker is the direct sequel, I am again finding little interest in these characters.

Also reading The Hobbit with my girlfriend as she has never read it before.

Not sure what I'll read next after I get these two finished up. Probably will be Wheel of Time #5, The Prose Edda, or The Song of Roland.

I got Smash Bros. Wii U! I've been playing it quite a bit and I've had a lot of fun so far. I've unlocked a bunch of characters and have begun my slow and steady march toward getting all of the playable character trophies. I never really completed everything in Melee or Brawl, so I likely won't do so here either, but I'll definitely get some enjoyment out of it.

I'm really, really happy that online play isn't as atrocious as it was on Brawl. I was able to hop right into a game, and while there was some lag, it wasn't hard to get down and have some fun with other players.

I also experimented with the Mii and character customization tools. They're okay. Kind of basic, but enough to give a character a bit of extra oomph if you want. I don't know, I guess that I don't really see all that much reason (thus far) for having an uber powerful character when they're slow as heck (or vice versa). Maybe time will tell.

Mega Man! Robin! Lucina! Yes!

Hot gosh darn this game looks pretty! And I love the new trailer. I can't wait for it! I think this will be the reason I purchase a PS4. Guess I better start saving.

Been messing around wit the Wii U some more. I downloaded and played Metroid: Zero Mission. I beat it in just over 3 hours since I didn't remember where a lot of things were and where I was supposed to go always. Got turned around a couple times during the "no clear objective" bits, but still did okay.

It got me on a Metroid kick and I found myself playing Super Metroid after I finished Zero mission. I transferred my Wii data to the Wii U, so I had it there. Glad I did that otherwise I'll have to pay a $1.50 to redownload it to the Wii U, which is kind of annoying. I know that isn't a lot, but I've already bought the game twice (original cartridge, and again on Wii U). Anyway, I know Super Metroid a lot better than I do Fusion, so I was able to make it through in under 3 hours, though I was a bit rusty.

Now that my Metroid craving is satisfied I'll get back to my replay of Majora's Mask.

Oh man! So glad I bought a Wii U. I've been wanting an open world Zelda game on a huge scale ever since Shadow of the Colossus showed me it was possible. And I know y'all are mentioning Skyrim and whatnot, but it looks more like Shadow of the Colossus to me.

I'm so excited to play it. I love how huge the world is!

^This == Shocking Truth!

Surprised there's no comments at all about the Star Wars teaser. Not a lot was shown, sure, but I thought I'd at least see one person talking about that totally practical crossguard on the lightsaber.

The lightsaber crossguard isn't any less practical than a double ended lightsaber, thank you very much.

It's nice to see X-Wings and the Millennium Falcon in action again. Accept no substitutes.

Agreed. I'm excited, and I'm interested to see what Star Wars is like in someone other than George Lucas's hands.

And sorry, Yoda, but I read over 70 of the EU novels when I was younger and the vast majority of them weren't very good. I think it's okay that they're getting the boot.

Though I haven't read a lot of them, I am kind of sad that Dark Horse won't be doing SW comics any more. All that I've read have been very good.

My two cents on Symphonia is that it was a fun game, but forgettable. I enjoyed it while I played it, but never felt the need to go back to it and I really don't remember all that much about it. I probably won't ever play it again, but who knows.

I have Majora's Mask on hold for the moment because I don't want to commit to the Great Bay Temple or the Anju/Kafei sidequest just yet. So I ended up playing Metroid Fusion on Wii U last night. Playing a game on the Wii U controller reminds me of a long, long time ago when I was the only person I knew who owned a Game Gear. I enjoyed it then, and I enjoy it now even though my hands feel too far apart.

Thanks Taelus! Those look great. I will see if I can find an adapter first since it is cheaper and I already have the GC controllers. If not, I'll most likely go with the licensed pro controllers you recommended.
14  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Super Smash Bros. Namdai on: November 30, 2014, 09:23:39 PM
So to anyone playing the Wii U game, do you think the GC controller adapter is worth it? I have the Wii U gamepad, a couple of Wiimotes, and one Wii classic controller. I will probably have two friends playing with me a significant amount of the time and I'm just curious as to whether I should get the GC adapter, since I already have 3 GC controllers, or if I should get another Wii classic controller instead. I prefer the GC controller myself, though I wouldn't bother with the adapter if it were just me.

Should be getting the game later this week!

Went home for Thanksgiving this past week and fired up the old N64 while there. I was realy happy it still works though there really wasn't any reason for it not to work as it is in good condition still (unlike my NES sadly). I mostly played Mario Kart and Smash Bros. Still the best Mario Kart, IMO, but I was shocked by the limited selection of fighters on Smash Bros. Not sure why I was surprised, but I was.

Before leaving for Thanksgiving I did buy a Wii U. Got it set up yesterday, and despite the 2+ hour wait to actually play I did get some game time with it. I played a few levels of Super Mario 3D Land, and downloaded Metroid Fusion. Made it to Sector 2 in the latter.

Aside from that I transferred my Wii data and played with some of the other tools and functionalities. Liking it so far, and I will probably get Smash Bros. later this week.
