Personally, I'd love that! Huge F-Zero fan here, and to me, it feels just sort of ridiculous for them to drop such a great series like this. Sure, not much people are into it, but I'm sure they would have been if they had ever given it more of an actual chance. Before GX, though, I would live to see a port or remake for X; this'd be a nice way to pick F-Zero back up, if they ever plan to.

Hyrule Warriors is making me drool at the idea of an HD Twilight Princess. That game needs the graphics bump, and I can see them removing the loading screens between areas and making it one seamless world. Not to mention that its the best Zelda, and I need a new excuse to replay it. Again.

If they were to create an HD remake for that, I hope to see more of a vibrant color scheme, if possible. Dark is great and suits the theme pretty well, but at least they could give us an option to switch around, for those that aren't too fond of it.

Though...that is something to note. A lot of times, HD remakes aren't remakes at all. They still have the same flaws the original games did, and it's rare that aesthetically you'll see an HD remake on the level of Halo HD (where they actually redid the games' graphics from scratch). In a lot of cases, HD Port is more accurate. Sometimes you'd get a similar, if not better effect from upscaling on an emulator.
It makes sense monetarily. The games will sell thousands more instead of being stagnant.

It doesn't make sense to me as a gamer, I guess. To me, it feels cheap and like they're just trying to cash in on it. As long as the trend doesn't continue beyond a select few great titles like GTAV, I won't be upset over it. This sort of crap occurs in the movie industry, such as Avatar being re-released a year or two after it was originally out. Once again, I don't even mind remastering or remakes, but they need to be classics like the Disney animated films or iconic games like Halo. They need to make the value worth it, not just slap a full-price on it and know it's gonna sell anyway.

Huh? I have a fair share of issues with the graphics, but vibrant colors are not one of them. The game has a fair share of them. Saturation levels don't need to be changed, it would ruin it for me.

That's why I want there to be an option to possibly change between styles, haha. I don't know, for my tastes, I suppose Twilight Princess graphics were just a little too dim.

    No, I get what you're saying. Sometimes the darker colors all blended together (at least on my tv) so things (especially those in the distance) looked like blobs. However, for me it wasn't that huge of a deal so if they made a remake I'd rather them leave it untouched as even the distant blobs contributed nicely to the atmosphere

    So, apparently tourists love dumping games during the holidays. In the course of two days I have bought for under 20 euros:
    Warioware Touched
    Trauma Center UTK
    Another Code
    Kirby Canvas Touch
    Picross 3D
    Radiata History or whatever the hell its called.

    Wow, Radiant Historia for under 20 Euros even with other games? That's an incredible find.

    Maybe. Okami was more saturated when it hit the Wii

    I can't imagine them offering two separate color schemes for the game - they picked the colors for a reason, right?

    I prefer it how it is already. I think it's plenty colourful at times, when it needs to be.

    But people seem to complain about it being brown and CoD-like

    Exactly. The poison fog of Faron Woods, the blue skies, the amazing lava of the mines, god I can go on and on. Only thing it really needs is a better grass texture and its perfect.

    I didn't even know of the mark up it had in collector circles until yesterday. Bought it just with knowledge of it being a good game, and that's it. And yeah, anything DS, Wii, or PS2 is dirt cheap, and you can find just about anything in the used game section. PS3 and PC are the only ones which have value here, as the used game market is limited to one mega chain store for electronics. Over the last months the stuff I've picked up are:
    Wario Land: Shake Dimension!
    Mad World
    No More Heroes
    Dragon Quest V
    Final Fantasy 4
    Zak and Wiki
    RE4: Wii Edition
    Kirby Super Star Ultra
    Kirby Mass Attack
    Pandora's Tower

    As you can see, I've been od'ing on kirby. :D

      I beat Luigi's Mansion today. That last 3 bosses are really interesting and different... but very annoying to repeat when you loose.

      Still, one of the better games on 3DS.

        It's a bit bloated and definitely could use more polish, but I agree. It's only behind Kid Icarus and A Link Between Worlds for me.

        Though I'm not sure how Luigi's Mansion on the GCN, which was rushed, offered a tighter experience than 2 did, which had a development time of a whooping 3 years. But whatever, LM1 was really repetitive with its objectives and didn't offer as strong of a level design as 2 did.

        Can't wait to see what Next Level Games are gonna offer next. Between Mario Strikers and Punch Out (their best game), they're a very talented studio for Nintendo. Give them Wario Land!

          I also loved Kid Icarus Uprising. Hope I don't have to wait another 25 years for another...

          Luigi's Mansion 2 also fixed the element system. The original had this wierd system of collecting fire and water to solve puzzles. in LM2, you just vacuum a bucket and fill it with water, or a log and set it on fire. A small change, but it makes the idea feel more complete.

          I thought the mission system was a bad idea at first, and then Changed my mind near the end. The mission system made the game better.

          I, for a brief moment, was hoping Mario would tag-team The final Boss with me - it seems kind of strange that they would reuse the same idea from the first game, but not reveal it until the last couple of levels.

          I find Kid Icarus: Uprising to be very addictive; have finished it for about three different times so far. Would love it if they were to ever release a sequel!

          Hmm... I dunno. The way it was in the first game made it feel more like a power-up to me, which I liked.

          Yeah, KI:U is great. It was my first 3DS game back when it was a struggling system, and I remember Kid Icarus being the light that showed potential for what would be the great modern day 3DS and the evergrowing library that it has. And, for being one of the earliest 3DS titles, it was really unique and was very smart with its delivery (and hilarious), easily still one of my favorite 3DS games.

          As for a sequel, Sakurai said that it's unlikely. It's not that it did badly, it did well, but it's because the game, by nature, is the sort of one-off modern callback title that it wanted to be. It brought back all of the NES enemies and made metajokes both about the game now and the game back then, and it had a very self-contained story that opened and closed the book. And I really don't mind that, because it's a fantastic game that really does stand well on its own.

            Helps that the game is just really deep and offers so much content. Two years and I'm still playing it.

            I'm OK with not getting a sequel as well.

              On Kid Icarus.... Do you play with the plastic stand that comes with the game or not?

              I have never played the game without it, have trouble controlling it with just my hands.

              I need to pick up Kid Icarus. I dunno if I can find it in many places, but it was something I wanted to get for the 3DS and unfortunately was too late to get while most shops sold it. I think Amazon was sold out last I checked.

                The best thing I can say about KI:U - Each level has Air and ground sections keeps the gameplay interesting. And... The Difficultly can be increased on EVERY level from 1.1 to 9.0 - Yes you can scale up the difficulty by decimal points to find a level of challenge you like most. Higher Difficulty yields better and more rewards.
