That's actually relatively big, relative to many weeks.
I know, I've been following Famitsu pretty closely. I just find it extremely alarming (or at this point even funny) for the leading home-console.

I think "grimly amusing" would be what I would go for...

I feel like I could write a book about how Nintendo did so much right and so much wrong at the same time this generation with the Wii, especially in Japan.

Mm. I think their missteps could have been mitigated if third parties had handled the system with a touch more confidence and intelligence, but a fair bit of the responsibility has to rest with the platform-holder.

If nothing else, at least it appears as though the company's experience with DS and Wii has translated into a far more positive relationship with third parties with regard to the 3DS and - I'd imagine - with the successor to the Wii.

Whoever here first suggested that the Nintendo/third party dynamic in relation to the Wii was a Prisoner's Dilemma was pretty much on the money...

Yes, someone needs to tell me what the BASARA 3 info is
They announced that it has been canceled.

There aren't any scans of it out yet.

the best-selling two madden installments in the last decade

1 PS2 Madden NFL 2001 37,463
2 PS2 Madden NFL Super Bowl 2002 8,436

... there has literally never been another Madden game for any console for the entire decade that has registered sales high enough to be reported on any official chart.

I'm really looking forward to the next Nintendo home-console if only to see if they finally managed to get some decent third-party support.

People seem to like me because I am polite and I am rarely late. I like to eat ice cream and I really enjoy a nice pair of slacks.

They're showing a PV for ACE R outside Yodobashi Camera in Akihabara on the 19th. Make sure you're there at 18:00, as it's going to be shown exactly once.

Very confident that the long hidden Nu will finally be shown. And it'll be absolutely lame if it's just the usual Nu. I'll throw a guess that it'll be the Hi- version or some other variant.

But yeah there's still a slight chance that these guys will be lame and we see the usual run-of-the-mill Nu.

That Aksys game?

I'm not even going to bother getting excited this time. The best announcements always come when I'm not waiting for them.
