Nintendo VC hit 100 titles today with the release of Zelda II

Yay!


Oh, and if you haven't yet, check out MirrorMask. Pretty funky movie.

Also of note. I believe it was mentioned somewhere that they've just hit 1 million downloads of VC games.

Good thing too cause I just beat Zelda. It's gonna be VC games for me till RE4 arrives.
It's nice that I can spend five or ten bucks for decent entertainment to fill those gaps.
I'm still itching to try The Godfather but I'm strapped for cash due to my pending move (in 1 month). I think RE4 is only going to be $30.

I'm waiting on Majora's Mask for VC myself. I seem to have the N64 and GameCube version of Zelda 64, but not Majora.

Prepare to be surprised. Majora's Mask is every bit as good as Ocarina of Time. The atmosphere is different though. OOT is very epic in scale, while MM feels a lot more dense, yet casual. The ending however is quite brilliant. Oh, and the giant moon hanging above everything is great. I always loved the opening sequence too...

In fact, I feel like firing up MM right now :)

I've been hoping it'd come to VC. I've never played it but have heard good things.
Is it confirmed to be coming out on VC?

I think everything is coming, it's just a matter of time when. As a company, it's silly to not be able to leverage an older title like that. It's basically free money.

Oh my god! A breakdancer! Didn't they go extint a couple of million years ago?
And that was a lesson for parents to keep their kids on leash I guess.

Edit: This was a bit funny but then again, I'm tired.

Fossils have been carbon dated to the early to mid 1980's. Honestly I think the process is flawed; breakdancers probably coexisted peacefully with the hippies during the 60's.

It is believed by some scientists that the breakdancers eventually evolved into other races we know today, such as trickers and traceurs...

Those movies are incredible. If what they say is true, income tax and the federal reserve are just an outrage.
In the second movie, watch the part with Joe Louis, it's incredible...

Unfortunately I live in Belgium, where my taxes are very constitutional...

You know... Belgium isn't really a country...
~my Dutch friend.

I still don't understand why the Dutch are so snooty against Belgium. You guys have the prettier accent.

Actually, it's pretty much true. Belgium is an ancient battlefield that was made into a neutral country to buffer Germany from France. We kinda got rid of that neutrality through some events of WWI if I'm not mistaken...

The result is a federal state with three languages, with the capital of Brussels in the unfortunate position of lying completely in Flanders, while being federal officially, causing a lot of language problems in the areas around.

It all sounds pretty trivial, but this country is on a constant brink of civil war between Flanders and Wallony, which is why the fascist party scores 25% of the votes in Flanders... (Flanders and Wallony are states) And all that in a country with about the number inhabitants of NYC...

This is pretty funny. The theme song/sound to the TV show Lost is a preset. :)



A demo video showing a guy creating a project, adding a VST to Cubase(?). Choosing the patch preset, adding a note, and voila. Lost. :)
