I was actually leaning towards de Blob because it looks really fun and cute, but when I went there today I didn't see it anywhere on the shelves. So I guess the decision was made for me.
Really though, how can you go wrong with something like Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Games? It's got Mario in it. It's got Sonic in it. It's got Olympic games. It's like an April Fools joke gone horribly right.
I read the story about how some characters were cut from the game, including Donkey Kong and Birdo. I'm not surprised to see Toad as a referee, he's filled roles like that before, usually in the Mario Party games.
