comment Does the Rock Band 3 Midi-Pro Adapter work in Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock?
So it works on some Wii GH games but not the PS3 equivalents. Still no solution over a year later, what a shame.

comment Is there a way to “teleport” in the iPhone version of Secret of Mana?
@Josh: I can verify the select trick doesn't work, it was one of the first things I tried after getting booted out! I'm convinced there's no way to teleport on the iPhone without save hacking and the fact that they changed the layout indicates that they went to specific lengths to prevent it.

@Josh: that is the first time (in my 18ish years on several different platforms) I have ever heard of the nudity page on those magic books. I laughed so hard when I read that - I'm going to be looking out for it in the future!

comment Is there an 8th Sword orb in Secret of Mana?
@Josh: lol I believe it's a glitch. There's two different hex offsets in the save file that describe the current location, interestingly enough. I'm speculating that one of these offsets wasn't written properly when saving in the SNES version and soft-resetting didn't clear this value either. So for certain locations in the game, the saved value of one offset mixed with the in-memory value of the other offset teleports you. In the iPhone version, they appear to have fixed either the incorrect saving or clearing the value on reset. I've tried everything I can think of and it can't be done ;-)

@DisgruntledGoat: thanks, I did think that we'd got the update a day later, but it makes sense that it was a simultaneous release.

Well, after today's pitiful update, I can at least mark this as the correct answer.

The title implies that this is specific to the US eShop... or are they all updated on the same day? I'm sure I remember the UK and US virtual console releases being different days on the Wii, not sure if the same still applies. I guess we'll see tomorrow.
