Re: Game corner games

I like the slots better. Voltorb Flip is pretty annoying.

Re: Game corner games

Screw both, Card flip FTW!

Too bad it didn't make it into either the US or JP versions of the remakes.

I actually liked Voltorb Flip. If they made it into a betting game, it would have been even better.

Re: Game corner games

Roulette was the best, although voltorb flip is better than the slots. (Slightly)

Re: Game corner games

I like Voltorb Flip, but why'd they take away the option to buy coins? Anyone who's not good at Voltorb Flip is going to have a terribly hard time getting Game Corner prizes (especially Porygon).

But when we had slots and roulette around, we still had the option to buy coins.

That said, I love Voltorb Flip to death. I never actually missed the feature to buy coins because it's so fun playing VF that I racked up thousands of coins in no time. Of course, the feature still should've been there for those who don't like the game.

I imagine that you're one of the people who just bought the coins.

So am I, but it doesn't work all the time. The reels slip, like they do on real skill-stop slot machines.

Re: Game corner games

I actually liked Voltorb Flip. Once you had it figured out, it was a fun little game.

I still would prefer to have the ability to buy coins, though.


EDIT: Thanks, guys. This thread spurred me to play Voltorb Flip for another hour and a half. Lost some time, but now have a Porygon. Meh.

Re: Game corner games

I'm a big fan of Voltorb Flip. I never bothered with the Game Corner before it came along.

Voltorb Flip is immensely superior. It actually uses skill, which, going by the number of people who voted for the slots, a lot of you seem to lack.

Yeah, I lack the skills to be a competent player on Voltorb Flip, but as I hate the minigame anyway, it doesn't matter if I'm good or not. I only maxed the Coin Case in my American HG with the help of a external calculator -that shows you possible board combinations- for bragging rights (if that could be seen as "bragging", of course) and then I decided it wasn't worth the time, so any TM or item I need is transferred from Platinum, which has the much better slots, the chance of buying coins if you don't have the time to collect them and the possibility of getting many TM 64.

I go with the slots since I'm pretty good with them. Playing lots of final fantasy will do that to you.

In the actual game, I prefer Voltorb flip, but the fact that you can't buy coins makes me prefer the slot method. If you could also buy coins in the Voltorb flip, it would be much better.
