Used my snow day from work to finish Secret of Mana ... great game! I wish there was a little more variety in the bosses and enemies throughout the game, and deeper a plot but still a fun play through, really enjoyed it.

My timing on the last boss was a little off at first with the mana sword magic, so had to give it two tries.

Think I'll play through Earthbound next.

Have you played earthbound before? I beat it for the first time very recently and absolutely loved it. I tried once before and just couldn't get into it, but definitely is one of my favorite games on the system.

Not that I've been looking hard, but I still have yet to see these in the wild. I don't think I'm going to buy one at this point, either.

(Now that I've said that, I'll see one and be sorely tempted to buy it.)

Nintendo has stated they will be releasing them until the end of this year. The NES classic comes back this Summer.

Is that something new? I don't remember it being promised the entire year, just well into it, perhaps overlapping with the NES unit which you know they'll pump out in large numbers to middle finger the scalpers through Christmas.

Only played a few hours on a ROM before, didn't have the physical release back when it came out.

Just finished the part with Frank at the arcade ... at first I wished the battle screens had more going on in them, but overall I'm into it. Definitely gonna spend a chunk of the weekend going through it.

My one recommendation is use the manual. It offers crucial information about the more cryptic items.. or at least use a guide on the items you are like, "What does this do!?" You will get a lot of that and it will reward you for sure!

Good looks on the advice -- it's definitely going to take me some time to learn the items and other nuances in the game. Using a guide from this website Thonky ... they only have a few RPG's on there but I also used their guide to help get through Secret of Mana.

Did Nintendo release official controllers to buy individually?
I haven't seen any and figured they didn't since the system comes with two. I ask since softmodded Wiis only works with licenced controllers not 3rd party ones.
