Ugh...I'm going back and seeing what I missed. Secret of Mana, Another World, most of the Mega Man games, Kendo Rage...MGS...ugh.

And I missed out on two amazing Zelda shirts.

...But at least I didn't miss Chrono Trigger :q

    I missed out on a lot too, but watch the F-Zero GX run first. It's incredible. (and fast, took 24 mins. Only CGN would consider that "slow" lol)

    I'm watching the Sonic 06 run right now. DarkSpinesSonic SOMEHOW makes it look playable lol. I'll catch up on Pikmin 3 and Fire Emblem: Sacred Stones afterwards.

        I honestly couldn't care less what console it is, I want my 60-fps 3d F-Zero.

        F-Zero X and GX are the perfect racing games. Nothing else even comes close. It speaks volume when 3D F-Zero are leagues above 2D F-Zero which are already one of the best there is.

        How this and Advance Wars (the F-Zero of strategy games) got into the backburner is mindboggling...OK there's sales. It is criminal how much F-Zero GX and Advance Wars DS undersold.

          Since I've said AW and F-Zero for 3DS well then waht next... Another Earthbound/Mother game for 3DS with battles and everything full 3d with the same catchy tunes but wait there's more... How about they give us another starfox game in... 3D, that's right flying through space with bullets flying through the screen to burn your eyelids because of the 3D how good does that sound?

            What are the chances of Nintendo putting the original Donkey Kong Country games on the eShop?

            Not sure, but if they did, I'd definitely download them. As for F-Zero—I would really like it if they made a sequel to GX (wouldn't mind if made a remake, either). I'm a big fan of F-Zero, and seeing them dropping it like that was just… y'know. ):

              Well he has been in the Smash Bro's series and I guess Nintendo would have a whole in it's heart if they dropped him...

              I got a 50 dollar gift card so that makes 100 dollars to buy a PSP!!!! sweet which one is easier to you know umm hack?

                I finally go my hands on Pokemon X!! ^^ Well, I'll have to settle for it since Pokemon Y was sold out. :X But who cares? At the end of the day I've got my little Pandora (Skunktank) to keep me company. C:

                Honestly, how rushed WAS this game? It's still awesome but you can totally notice how rushed or pressured they were to hurry the freak up and release it... maybe we shouldn't have begged so bad, 'cos now it's just a mass of... I dunno, bugs and Rock types? xD

                Still one of my faves tho. C:

                Does anyone know where I can get a damn flying type which can learn fly instantaneously? 'Cos there are some stylish freaks who are summoning rocks and I apparently have to fly in the city to get there... if only I listened and got a Fletching at the start. ;-;

                    Okay, thanks! ^^

                    I'll run cross country to Cyllage City (AGAIN) and then catch a Wingull and let it huff and puff and finally lift me up by my toe before soaring off. xD

                      LOL it doesn't have to be a wingull but whatever floats your boat.

                        Yeah, plus that'll be easier then raising a Fletching til it's level sixteen.

                        Gods, why could I just got a damn Talonflame like everyone else? xD

                          Yeah I accidentally killed the automatic encounter pidgey at the beginning I wanted to catch him but I had to do a crit of all times.

                          Well, if it makes you feel better, I got a pidgey and used it until the endgame. And online, it was a great one-shotting tank.

                            Honestly, the beginning flying types are so annoying. ;-; Their design is either horrible or their movepool is or they're just plain horrible. >;C

                            I'm not really a fan of Flying types. :P

                              Yeah I heard Pidgeot got buffed or something with the speed stat and something else. I like pidgey because it's a cool looking bird and TalonFlame is alright I like Fletchling better than its evolutions.

                                Oh well, Talonflame is still better because of it's move set, but like, seriously, why are flying types so... annoying? >_>

                                Just to update - as Chrono Trigger ended (the final game being run) they pushed the $1,000,000 mark for donations. Absolutely crazy.

                                My favorite runs were F-Zero GX, SM64 (played with one hand), Pokemon: SS, Star Wars, Barkley Shut Up And Jam Gaiden, all the LoZ/DKC runs, and the blindfolded Punch Out runs. I'm probably forgetting some because there were so many awesome games. @[email protected]


                                Needless to say, I can't wait for their next marathon. AGDQ was incredible this year. ;3

                                  Chrono trigger isn't hard to speedrun on New game + it all depends on how fast you complete the carnival and saving marle bit then you can go straight to the end time.

                                      Super Metroid run was absolutely amazing. Go watch that one if you haven't.

                                      And I honestly feel F-Zero X run is underrated and overshadowed by the GX run, but it had great commentaries and there are so many cool tricks done. (Nothing in the vein of shift boost, mind you, but still)

                                      SMT3 Nocturne is the best JRPG there is. That is all.

                                      Well, it's basically Pokemon, but with demons. Instead of catching them, you have to talk to them and convince them to join you. Obviously, using recruited demons is NOT the way to go, the meat of the game is in its fusion system. The game rewards you for constantly fusing your demons to get the best possible result. It's really hard and overwhelming at first, but if you're patience and know what you're doing it becomes a very rewarding and addictive experience. Its only flaw is that it has random encounter, but at least you'll know when the encounter will occur, so it's not really random.

                                      It also has the best atmosphere in any RPG I played, bar none.

                                      From what I know, all PSP are easily hackable so I'd recommend getting the 3000 'cause its the latest. I've got one and the amount of homebrew on it is just...high.

                                      Anyone here played Persona 3 Portable?

                                      The later Persona grames are really worth checking out. 3 and 4 are both excellent.

                                      I heard the blindfolded Punchout was amazing, and sadly, since I didn't get into the event until the last two days, but the ones I watched most closely and from beginning to end were Wind Waker, SM64, and Chrono Trigger.

                                      Chrono Trigger was an interesting case. Not because it was a JRPG of the sort that it was, one where you wouldn't expect it to have as many tricks as it did, but because of how much it managed to do in the time that it had. 1 million was a real stretch, and as it progressed, no one knew if it was possible, but it seemed a lot of people (and I mean A LOT of people, myself included) were waiting for Chrono Trigger, and the donations started to grow. Plus we had such great things as WONDERSHOT, Robo and the Son of the Sun, and the ending (oh, that ending). It was a really exciting run, and it was that excitement, both from the gameplay and from the 1 million hype, that has me looking forward to SGDQ. I'll be sure to look through the archives.

                                      Well I think there's a difference between simply playing and getting the first ending (which is quick) and speedrunning by meeting the same goal. It's one of those short things that you have to employ speedrunning tricks (such as skipping the Lucca event, naming Crono "!", and manipulating the game seed) to get the fastest time, rather than simply going fast.

                                      Spino basically described the franchise. ShinMegaTen is like Pokemon (and it actually preceded Pokemon). Now, there are a number of spin-offs for Shin Megami Tensei, each of which plays differently, has a different story structure, and a different tone. There are the Dungeon Crawlers, which includes the main series (SMT, SMT2, SMT3: Nocturne, and SMT4), The Persona series (Persona, Persona 2:Eternal Punishment and Innocent Sin, Persona 3, and Persona 4), Digital Devil Saga, Devil Children, and Devil Summoner. Knowing you, Persona 3 and 4 would probably be most up your alley. While these two games don't involve talking to Pokemon, they are considered not only the best in the SMT series but also two of the best RPGs (or just games) ever made. I could explain it to you, but it might be easier just to read this.

                                      Don't expect a story on par with Pokemon, though. SMT takes itself and it's character based stories very seriously. It's as gruesome as it needs to be when it needs to be, it's as heartfelt as it needs to be when it needs to be, and it's as difficult as it needs to be when it needs to be. The Persona games and the Devil Children games are lighter in tone than pretty much any of the other subsets, but this by no means makes their stories worse. Persona carries incredibly strong characters and, in Persona 3 and 4, where a good portion of the games are actually played outside of combat where you basically just live life and strengthen your bonds with other people (something that these games do very well). They're still serious, with Persona 3 having a pretty dark story and Persona 4 tugging at heartstrings and using the time you spent with the characters to its advantage. They're just worth playing, check 'em out.
