If it's just the hard drive then it'll be easy and inexpensive to fix or replace. I had to replace my laptop's hard drive and it only cost me $50 plus I did it myself. Sure beats those expensive repair shops.
I hope so too.
I haven't. xD
Oh yeah. Now I'm even more excited for XY. ^^
Yep it's pretty nice to have, especially since I got it for free from my mom. =D
Super Mario 64 and Super Mario World are in my top 5 Mario games. I luv them to pieces. XD I've been thinking about downloading Super Mario 64 for my Wii since Nintendo is offering it for 200 Club Nintendo coins. The offer expires on May 5, 2013. I can't decide whether to download it or to keep saving in case something cool becomes available later on. ^^;
The GBA version is basically the same as the SNES one with minor differences like sound quality. ^^ When the GBA launched, Nintendo decided to port it's popular SNES titles like Mario World, Final Fantasy, etc. to the GBA in to improve sells. I think it worked well for them.
