News that at least might matter:
Sengoku BASARA 2: Braves' Side Story (PS2 & Wii; Capcom; 11/29)
* Three additions to combo system:
Fever Drive: Takes effect for 10 seconds after a particular combo length, works the same as Sengoku Drive
* Seal System: Hit an enemy with a "sealing" attack, and their life bar will glow gold. Hit them with a normal attack after and you get the opportunity for extra attack.
* Combo count during co-op keeps going up as long as at least one player is kicking ass at any one time

Idolm@ster Live For You! (Xbox360; Bandai Namco; 08/2/28) icecream in #13
-The player is a special type of Producer: chosen from among the fans, he gets a 1 day shot at being Producer.
-Kotori Otonashi will be on hand to assist the Producer
-During the Live performance one has to choose between options such as 'Support' or 'Photograph' with 'support' options including cheering, or secondary instrumental A/B.

Monster Hunter Portable 2ndG (PSP; Capcom; 3/13)
* "All data that isn't gamebreaking will carry over"; you can change sex, at which point sex-specific gear will also change.
* While hunting, an otomoail can be brought along, limited to one in single-player. There are many different types, with different patterns and abilities. Ther can be trained in the Ail Kitchen.
* G-class quests are unlocked, and other upper-rank quests are added, including the top-rank "Village Chief" quest from Necote.
* New monsters "Lightning Dragon Nargagarga", "Soaring Dragon Yamatsukami". Nargagarga looks like Tigarex in the body, and has a black panther motif (including face). Palette swap of Daimyo Uzaza also appears.
* New field "Deep Forest" in addition to previously-seen Volcano, Dunes, Cliffs, Forbidden Woods.
* On sharpness gauge, purple is now above white
* Mail for paint added.
* Lightning-elemental gunlance added.
* New varieties of hunter's pipes added

It'd probably be better to do both, really.

If you do both, so as to cover all your bases, and people still complain, then you'll have every right to tell 'em to kiss off. :D

On another note...I'm hoping for at least one more BASARA HEROES update. Game does come out in like another two weeks, so we should stand to get one more Fami-update before then.

And as always, any thing relating to Kunio-kun Dodge Ball DS would ALWAYS be welcome. :D :D

Odd scores for the PS3 version considering it's been pretty negative from just about everything I've read of that version. I'll be honest, I haven't read much but from what I've read...nowhere near quad-9s

Shockingly realistic scores for Sonic/Mario in Peking for Famitsu. Is it assumed that it will be criticproof there and sell like crazy? Didn't the prez of sega promise to sell 3 million?

Also, I just noticed that GI gave it a 4.0 -- Holy shit!

Culdcept DS? Are there pics of that? Is it a port?

Oh that's what I meant, it doesn't look like they'll review it at this point. They don't always review ports and remakes but they've made exceptions before, sorry for not being clear.

BTW, it looks like a lot of people missed ethelred's Culdcept DS thread.
