I turned off all the new features, but it didn't stop the noise. I even turned off the Quick Start Menu, because I don't see much advantage to it. It doesn't seem any quicker than booting to the main menu and choosing a game from there.

Has anyone found a solution to it?
I decided to reactivate the quick menu. I no longer hear the "clacking" sound (I love that word!). It is a bit easier using it, because one click opens a recent game, instead of waiting for the main menu to load and double-clicking a game from there.

I'm glad your "clacking" issue cleared up because I LOVE the quickstart menu. In this day and age it's almost strange to hit the power button on a console and be playing a game in about 20 seconds. Not quite the good ol' cartridge days, but close enough.

NES Remix Pack has been announced finally for North America.

http://www.joystiq.com/2014/07/26/ne...-this-holiday/

I've been waiting in the hope that a retail release would happen, but had just about given up hope. Almost even redeemed my Club Nintendo reward last night for NES Remix.

Unless you absolutely have to have a physical copy, I wouldn't wait around for it before purchasing. You could redeem your reward and get Remix 2 all for less than the price of the disc I'm sure - and you wouldn't have to make yourself wait to play such a great game

Nuts! I already chose NES Remix as my reward, days before the hard copy is announced. Nintendo makes me angry.

Playing Metroid Prime 3 and kind of blown away by how goods it is. I listened to internet meta/forum people say the Wii and Gamecube sucked so these are all new to me. It's weird how wrong those people are about so much stuff.

If you're willing to spend $50 to get a used copy (still a bargain and better than most any current gen $50 game you could buy), I can't recommend Metroid Prime Trilogy enough to get 16:9 versions with MP3 style control of the first two from the GameCube.

They're every bit as attractive and entertaining as Metroid Prime 3 and the original is probably the best of the three.

Same, but this is the type of game I prefer digitally to play as a convenience. It's a fun game and I am glad I got it, but I doubt I would ever make the effort to get the box out and play. Retro and minigames are perfect for digital downloads.

Internet mentality is pretty amazing. What's good is overrated, what's bad is misunderstood. Popular is for the sheep, obscure is for the connoisseur. It would be nice if everyone just shared their personal experience/opinion on matters, but far too often people treat other people's opinions as their own and spread it like a weed.

MP Trilogy is the pride of my collection. It took my favorite games and improved them. I really can't say enough about how good the trilogy is - if you've never played the Prime games you have to at least try them. The original is my personal favorite game of all time, and the sequels are excellent as well.
