First, I'd like to start by wishing DMG Ice a happy belated 7th birthday.

For those you didn't know, assuming Phil posts this on time, today is my 26th birthday. Over the years, I have played numorous favorites. I know copycatism is a problem in gaming today, however most of that comes from the copying of games that were bad to begin with.

There are sequels that are never made and ports that never happen.

So, consider this my birthday list to all the game companies out there.

  • Classic Fire Emblem ports. I enjoyed the GBA version and I'm looking forward to the second one and the GC version. I'd like to play some of the older titles in the series and see what we've been missing here in the states.
  • Mother (Earthbound) Trilogy. The only SNES RPG I liked more than Earthbound was Final Fantasy II (IV). It had an original premise and quirky characters. It was unlike any RPG before or since.
  • New Old-School Mario Side-Scroller. Something along the lines of SMB3, SMW, and SML2. It should have more and larger worlds, as well as multiple playable characters, like in SMB2.
  • New Super Smash Bros. SSBM is still the game that gets the most time in my GameCube. Improvements would include more characters (Wario, Diddy Kong, and characters from Fire Emblem GBA and Advance Wars would be worthy additions, as well as maybe a couple crossover characters, such as Sonic and Tails.
  • Collections of classic NES, SNES, Gameboy, and N64 games for GameCube.
  • US Versions of Donkey Konga 2 & 3 and DDR with Mario.
  • Ports of Final Fantasy 3-whatever they're on now and Dragon Warrior 4-whatever they're on now.
  • New Final Fantasy and Dragon Warrior (I won't hold my breath.).
THQ and BAM:
  • Go out of business.
  • A US version of Lost in Blue. The original Survival Kids kicked some major ass.
Whoever owns the rights:
  • A Faceball 2000 remake. A classic that was ahead of its time.

Well, that's all I have to say about that. Be sure to check out next week's Milk This. Same H-Time, same H-Channel.

Peace out!
