Super Paper Mario continues to look absolutely astounding.

Talk about the GameCube going out with a bang.

Okay, Super Paper Mario looks awesome...but, no love for Mario Hoops ? :( S-E + Nintendo DS = graphical voodoo magic.

Super Paper Mario looks fricking fantastic!

What the hell happened to StarFox Command?
Ugly art... Not on rails... At least Slippy has a girlfriend... does that mean she's a lesbian?

no hard gay on pangya = no buy

also, the artwork for Mario Basketball is great, why does nintendo insists on using the cg renders?

super paper mario does look awesome...but let's not get crazy. it's been a year and a half since re4, and there's been little reason to hook up a gamecube since. gamecube has gone out with the most pitiful of whimpers.

Thanks for the new scans now, Neo!

Persona 3 looks great.

I *really* love the look of Metal Saga DS. Visually and stylistically... this reminds me so much of SNES-era Final Fantasy games. Please pick this up, Atlus.

I said it's going out with one. I didn't say "The GameCube's last year and a half has been that of a successful and flourishing console."

that bongo crap can die, but my failure to play gc fire emblem is probably the low point of my career as a graphics whore. fire emblem rocks, but...so ugly!

a promising game after years of silence probably does sound like a bang. but this is all terribly off topic.

Super Paper Mario looks gorgeous and the rest look quite good, hell with the DS lite i'll even like Tamagotchi. :lol
If Pangya and Metal Saga DS make it over here,i'll get them both. Please Atlus bring Metal Saga DS and Tecmo bring Pangya.
Daisy comfirmed in Mario Basketball!!!!

Metal Saga DS looks interesting, are there any reviews out?

SPM looks gorgeous as usual but Pangya looks surprisingly better then I was expecting.

Well since Metal Saga for the PS2 sucked hard I can't say I'd trust the DS game either.
I like it, i'd like the DS version localized, perhaps next year by Atlus.

Says someone with a Wild ARMs avatar!

Metal Saga didn't suck, though it's definitely not a for-everyone RPG. I really want the DS one, too, because I think it looks excellent and because I can never have enough sprite-based RPGs.

-Super Paper Mario looks fun. I like the shot with the rock with the arrow on it.

-Daisy's character art for Mario Basketball is fantastic. I may or may not get Mario Basketball, but had to at least say that. Also, she needs to be put in Smash Bros. Brawl in her soccer/basketball shorts, as her own character with a unique moveset as opposed to a palette swap of Peach.

-I hate golf games, but Swing Golf Pangya has a wide variety of cute female characters and unlockable outfits--AKA my two favorite features that any game can possibly have--and I fear that'll convince me to buy it when it hits $20. ;_; Although, why is one of the girls dressed like Kasumi from DOA? Is this a Team Ninja game or something?

It's a Tecmo game, that's why.

the game is good
but it disappoints me that lacking WFC support and only 2 play available in the VS mode ( 4 play in mini game mode)

here, overall the game is OK
but 4 reviwers also comlpain about the game that has to use touch pen to control is not convenience

No WFC support ? Then, why is "Wi-Fi" written under the game's logo on the scan ?

I'd hate to turn this into a Wild Arms vs Metal Saga debate but at least Wild Arms is balanced and has a lot better features than anything Metal Saga has to offer. Metal Saga is just horrible in nearly every aspect except music which is pretty decent.

Interesting Top 30 chart. I'm amazed that XIII is just a hair from the top already, with almost as many votes as III on the DS despite being over a year away, and little info being released. Zelda higher on the GC than the Wii by more than 100 votes is kinda strange though, I would've expected it the other way around. What's the other Wii game BTW? SSBB or SMG? Blue Dragon is getting pretty damn high too, not that the list usually translates into sales much, but nevertheless it's a start.

It eases my faith a little amongst Japanese gamers and next gen to see 4 PS3 titles already, especially since most of the Japanese titles haven't been shown all that much. I think they'll be even more after TGS. Great to see a PSP title on the charts finally too, though not that it really matters; it's FF, and we all know it'd chart even if it were on the N-Gage. ;_;
