A quick list of N64, GBC, and GBA (werd) games that we will be seeing at Spaceworld!
Nothing yet on the Dolphin front but here's a quick list of N64, GBC, and GBA (werd) games that we will be seeing at Spaceworld. 2 things on this list just grab me, shake me around, and scream "Who's yo Daddy". Mario Tennis for GBC (there better damn well be one more use for the Transfer Pak), and Mario Kart for the GBA. Those two right there are worth keeping an eye on! More Tennis and Kart....am I the only one drooling here?
