Gameboy Advance

I've decided that I really want a Nintendo Gameboy Advance.

They look really cool, they'll play all Gameboy and Gameboy Color games, as well as new games, and they're relatively inexpensive, all things considered, at $99. (As I recall, that's the price the original Gameboy went for).

Especially since they've released some of their cool older games for Gameboy Color, if they continue doing that. . . I would love if they released Final Fantasy 1 for Gameboy Advance, or some of the other games I used to love.


Final Fantasy. . .

I still remember when I got that game. It was a Christmas present from my parents, just a couple months after it was released. I'd never heard of it, but I loved Role Play Games, so I figured I'd enjoy it.

The first few minutes were awesome. The game was just sweet. But, then I couldn't get anywhere. Every battle was drawn out forever, and I had way too much trouble defeating even simple enemies. Because of that, I couldn't get anywhere, and didn't know where to go.

So, I shelved it to play the other game I got for Christmas, Crystalis. Chrystalis kicked much booty, and was much enjoyed for the next week or so. Unfortunately, then I beat it. ;-)

So, having nothing else to do, I went back to Final Fantasy. This time, I decided to actually read the instructions, and I immediately noticed something. . . when I'd played before, I hadn't actually equipped any weapons or armor. ;-p

I'd assumed I had, but I hadn't. So, this time I equipped my characters, and then I really got into it.

A year or two later, when me and a friend of mine were really bored, we beat the game around 70 times in an attempt to discover the best combination of characters to beat it with. ;-)

God I miss that game. I think I need to install an emulator and find it.

Re: Final Fantasy. . .

That's a good idea. . . I've always wanted to play some of the FF's that weren't released in the US. I'm gonna have to look into those soon. ;-)


ACK!!! whered you find that picture? i used to watch danger mouse!!!! i love danger mouse!!!! WAAAAAAAHH!!!!! i have all of his shows on tape!!


Re: ACK!

I don't remember for sure where I got it, but it was from some Danger Mouse website.

If you do a search on Google for Danger Mouse, you'll find it, I think.

I know what you mean, though. DM is one of my absolute favorites, and one of the best cartoons ever created, in my opinion. ;-)

A Couple of Things for You

Crystalis was re-made for Gameboy Color a while ago. I can't remember if this was just in Japan, though. Hmm... I should check Funcoland.

Anyways, as it stands right now, Nintendo and Square (who makes Final Fantasy) are still not on good terms. Final Fantasy 1 has already been remade for a Japanese system, the Wonderswan Color, and the two Japanese Famicom FFs we didn't get (2j/3j) are also being re-released in the same fashion. There are no plans for the Wonderswan Color's release in the USA.

In a recent conference, Square said they'd love to rerelease FF4-6 on Gameboy Advance. A few days later, Nintendo announced that there were not going to be any Square games on a Nintendo system... indefinitely. I guess they're still bitter that Square switched to Playstation for FF7 because N64 was a piece of crap.

Re: A Couple of Things for You

Oh... and another thing...

Dragon Warrior 1/2 are out for GBC (thanks to Enix, which is a beautiful little company that finally reestablished themselves in the US), and Dragon Warrior 3 is coming out this month or next month.

Re: A Couple of Things for You

Yep, I actually found that out just before making my post. Seeing that Chrystalis had been released for Gameboy Color, from Nintendo's website, and the fact that it would be playable on Gameboy Advance is one of the reasons I want it. ;-)

I honestly don't expect I'll ever see FF1 on Gameboy Advance, but I would *love* for it to happen. ;-)
