loo, I just looked it up. A box slightly bigger than your hand can NOT be considered a PC. :P

Although, I'll bet you can still run a GBA emulator on it. Emuparadise has a list of them for OS X.

You can emulate nearly anything on the Wii, or just about any other system for that matter, through Homebrew applications, the specifics of which are far to arduous to go on about at length, and the Mods / Admins prolly don't want us to talk about it any way. Regardless, despite my unfamiliarity with Mac systems, I believe you should still be able to run a GBA emulator. They take about as much power to run as most Java or Flash games, maybe slightly more, and there's no installation required. You simply DL it, unpack it into a destination folder, grab a rom or two and boot it up like any other executable. They're also fun to fiddle around with, as you can dick with just about every setting imaginable. Plus, save states RULE.

Yeah, I've been playing with those for long enough, so now I can't imagine doing it without them. :P

Boost Guardian and Spider Guardian are hella easy (even on hard).



The final battle on the other hand... well let's just say I'm glad I had the Wristrap on :P

Also, I remember hearing something about a homebrew GBA emulator for the Wii?

I use it. It's AWESOME! (Just don't link roms, and it should be fine....)

Yeah, the Wii versions are like the GC games on Godmode. Spider Guardian is very doable on the GC, should you be patient enough to watch his patterns, and press X to zoom the camera in on yourself to improve movement precision for those bombjumps.

Boost Guardian is all about evasion, imo.
When somebody tells me he doesn't believe in violence, I punch him in the face to inform him of its existence.

Huh, I never found the Boost Guardian to be all that difficult. The Spider Guardian, on the other hand... That was a horrible battle (Bam, Bam, Bam as the Morph Ball flies around, health dwindling). The antithesis to the P.Bomb Guardian in difficulty.
I have little imagination when it comes to signatures. >.>

So I just finished kicking Mecha Ridleys butt(not really) and I was like "I have enough health to face Metroid Prime lol." I didnt even last 2 minutes.

Metroid Prime Echoes is pretty difficult, I keep getting lost ALL the time and a couple of times I had to resort to walkthroughs. Even if I do I dont know what the heck I'm doing half the time.

Metroid Prime kicked my ass multiple times, I was lucky that I finally beat it.

I destroyed Emperor Ing my first try. I then proceed to lose to Dark Samus. and by lose, I mean she killed me, not that the timer ran out.

I almost died in the Phendrana Space Pirate Lab in Prime 1...... I had 17 energy left before I got to the save point.... Although, it may be because I was careless.

I had a major brain lapse during a recent fight with Omega Ridley. I forgot you can use the X-ray visor to target his armor joints more efficiently.

Needless to say I was there a long time and died a few times.

That is a really nice sig, when I saw it I thought it was Flash. I'm amazed at how you could achieve so much detail with a gif.
