Why do you need a power brick.

FinalFormKing236261d ago

5000 points and a controller is 42 bucks?!? That is a little too expensive for me. I think I will stick with 1000. That seems more reasonable

Raist6261d ago

For the power brick, i guess they're gonna sell em just in case yours dies. I REALLY hope for them that the bundle includes a power brick, lolz.

The lamest thing IMO is the SD card. I mean, wow, 25 euros. You can find those kind of cards for around 10 euros now. And i guess it won't be possible to use another card than nintendo's, at least for game saves. Lame.

ChickeyCantor6261d ago

offcourse but it also depends on what brand you get for the SD.

and ofcourse they add a powerbrick XD

Balance6261d ago

yeah the SD card caught my attention also. i bought a 1GB SD card for my camera for $60 last month. unless there is something proprietary about it their SD card is a rip off.

eepiccolo6261d ago (Edited 6261d ago )

Actually, the 5000 points with the controller is a real good deal. You're paying for 5000 yen worth of points for the virtual console and whatever else you can buy with them, but then the controller is effectively thrown in for free!

The $32 for 512MB (it should be uppercase B for byte) SD price makes sense. Best Buy's 512 MB cards run from $25 to $50 bucks. I'll be getting a 3rd party card though, so I can get a 2 or 4 GB card.

And I hope Component cables will be about $21 in America, too. That $40 cost for the Component cable for the Gamecube was annoying. Or what would be even better is if the Wii could use the GCN Component cables.

Spider-Man 2 (2004) and Ultimate Spider-Man use to be my favorite until Insomniac games took over.

Inverno10d ago

I'd still choose Ultimate above all other games, followed by Shattered Dimensions

Abnor_Mal10d ago (Edited 10d ago )

My favorite and still champion Spiderman PS2, followed by Marvels Spiderman2, then Miles Morales, followed by Marvels Spiderman, and finally Ultimate Spiderman.

I need to drag out my PS3 and try Web of Shadows, owned the game for years and years and never played.

Rimeskeem10d ago

Shout out to cultured vultures for NOT making this 40 separate pages.

Relientk7710d ago

Spider-Man (2000), Spider-Man 2: Enter Electro, and Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions were all so good! I have fond memories playing them.


Super Mario RPG review (Nintendo Switch): Colorful, charming and chock-full of humor - Beyond Pixels

The 1996 SNES classic returns on Nintendo Switch. There's lots of new aesthetics and features, but still lots of nostalgia as well. Is the weirdly funny and seemingly off-brand game worth its money in 2023?

Zelda: Ocarina of Time - A Legend 25 Years in the Making

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time debuted 25 years ago, forever changing the face of video games and becoming a legend of its own.

I used a guide to beat part of it but some of the rest myself, still enjoyed it regardless. Too bad they didn't stick with this kind of gameplay for the rest of the series as I would prefer it over what they're doing now.

TheBrainZ12d ago

A definitive moment in video game history. Played it countless times, and Zelda was the best reason to own an N64.

FinalFantasyFanatic12d ago

I played through OoT so many times on the 64, then I bought it on the 3DS before the Eshop shut down. I wish we could have a Zelda collection like we did for Mario, I still can't believe that never happened.
