Cold, Giovanni.  Real cold.

Oh wow, my profile still works!  Success!  Man, I can't wait for this game now that I've discovered that Monkey Magic is a playable song in there.  I reckon a lot of other Aussies would become suddenly interested in the game too - I know loads of people that used to watch the show when they were younger (myself included).  The nature of Monkey was...irrepressible!

Oh yeah, other J-Pop too or something.  (MONKEY MAGIC!  IN THIS GAME!)  I look forward to this game arriving this week - it may be the first thing to wrench me away from Pokemon.

NSMB was fun, but it certainly did seem to be riding on the coattails of its predecessors.  "Hey!  Remember the flags from SMB!  They're back!"  "Oh hey!  Remember Goombas again?  And Koopa Troopas?  Don't you?  Hey!  Hey!  Whoa!  Look at that!  Ghost houses!  Look!  Oh, and remember how you couldn't save until you beat a castle?  It's like that here too!  Even though it's a portable game!  It's just like the old ones!  Honest!"

Nice game though, but it seems that the game was more of a fanservice than a new game with Mario where they could do whatever they wanted.

I like playing kid icarus on my gba


I'm sure glad someone does!  Because, you know, that game was awful.  Kind of like a seizured, retarded step up from Ice Climber, which wasn't any good either.

Although this game is fun:

...what?  What?  WHAT?  Fantastic.  I really hope the rumours of Bomberman Saturn come true as well.

You should definitely review the DS version, Jeff - that's some quality software right there.  Be AMAZED as characters disappear before your eyes!  Be ASTOUNDED as three quarters of the game world randomly vanishes from view!  MARVEL at levels that are not actually possible to complete!  RETURN this game back to Lucasarts directly for a FULL REFUND!

Hooray, I'll never see TurboGrafx games ever, thanks region restrictions!

Although I am pleased that I'll be able to use my Hori GameCube pad to play my SNES games, that works out great.

Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!  SOLD.

I looooved Mario's Picross.  My only other wish (which will never happen ever) is that Mario's Super Picross will be available in the local Virtual Console.  Oh well!

Awesome, the first one was hilariously mental, I'll be sure to get this one when it comes out locally...in 2010.

I hope they localise that Tamagotchi Wii game too, that also looks wonderfully surreal.  And I'd love to see what looks to be a Wii sequel to "Nobody Can Stop Mr. Domino" coming out in English.

?  "Australian English" is British English.  We don't have some crazy moonspeak language we use.

Well, except for those made-up words like "chunder" and "vegemite" - we've been messing with you for years with those.  Bless.

TalkBack / RE: Seven More Wii Games From Ubisoft

Wow, this totally reminds me of the year Ubi released BG&E and Sands of Time in the same year and everyone loved them.

...and then they released Warrior Within the next year. :-(  Oh well, better luck this time!

Lemme see what I remember...these are games I bought on release day:

Super Mario Land 2: $62
Castlevania: Circle of the Moon: $110
Conker's Bad Fur Day: $110

Good times.  Although, I remember treasuring Mario Land 2 because I saved up all my pocket money to get it.  But then, I also paid the same price for Bart vs. the Juggernauts.  (This was before we had things like The InterTron.)  DIE ACCLAIM

Oh wait.

Um...Phoenix Wright has already been released in Europe.  It's the one with the delightfully plain white cover.

My copy of the game finally arrived, and I love it.  A HUGE improvement over the GBA version.  No more ugly rendered graphics, no more punishment for retrying a level, a lot less overused Mario voice samples, I really like the whole package.  I really think that the game's a lot better for doing something different instead of trying to ape a game done on the monochrome GB a lot better.  Well done NST, this game's great - can't wait to see more!

The manual's headings include "Control Squishtem", "A Goolance at the Game Screens", and "Introgoocing Items".

I think this may just be the Best Game Ever.  (Keep in mind that I generally loathe any Square game, so me liking this is actually a PRETTY BIG DEAL.)

Seeing as NAL sucks and hates people that buy their games, these demos aren't out here yet.  So.  Can anyone help me out?  I did like Donkey Kong '94.  I didn't like Mario vs. Donkey Kong (mainly because you got punished for restarting a level, but other niggly little things too.  But moving on.)  I kind of liked Lemmings.  From the demo, does it look like Mario vs. Donkey Kong 2 (which, from what I understand, is nothing like the first game) might appeal to me somewhat?  Your opinons are welcome and encouraged.  Except rants about me not liking Mario vs. Donkey Kong, I'll scroll past those.

Well, if it never comes out, you can always play the first case.

Oh, you totally get a thumbs up for that.  (I wish I'd thought of that one.)

I do look forward to purchasing the same game with a different story and slight incremental updates again for another four years, though.  No, really.

I hope you traded it for good gum, like Cola flavour. (NOT Vanilla Cola flavour, it's not the same.)

Moving on - I was kind of hoping that Blue Dragon was going to be action-RPG.  I like an RPG where you actually get to hit things.  My favourites were Illusion of Gaia, Terranigma, Soul Blazer, and Brain Lord was fun too (if not only because of the WACKY TITLE).  Oh well, maybe one day another nice Action RPG will arrive again.  Maybe.

Don't worry, he still smiles.

You'll probably be wanting the GBA version then, it's looking pretty damn sweet.  I hope it's by the guys that made Rayman 3 GBA, that was incredibly addictive.
