After meeting my match in Reflect Missile I played some of the training levels in Dragon Quest Wars.

The 'dynamic' camera makes dragging objects around a grid unnecessarily difficult.

How does Ogre Battle 64 compare to Ogre Battle on SNES? I loved that game.
Better in just about every single way, save maybe the crazy mouthless giant eyed 3D models versus the excellent sprite art. Gameplay wise though it's just more and better.

I got Digidrive the other day, and I'm glad I did. Its a nice little diversion when I've been writing too long. Not in the same league as Planet Puzzle League and Tetris DS, but at least as good as Puchi Puchi Virus.

Throw in Pictobits and its amazing YMCK soundtrack and the DS is becoming quite the action-puzzle juggernaut.

I wish Nintendo would release Gemfire one day... I would be eternally grateful and immediately drop to my knees and provide them blowjobs of gratitude.

Might already be known here but you can currently buy 2000 Nintendo point cards at walmart.com for $15 + shipping + 20% bing cashback. Obviously the more cards you buy the better value you get. Shipping was between $2-3 for me, and doesn't increase by much per card you add.

I ordered 2 cards and paid $33 and got $6 through bing cashback. Not bad at all.

Sunsoft, a division of SUNCORPORATION, has today announced their return to active console game publishing for the North American market, aided by startup GAIJINWORKS.

Kiharu Yoshida, CEO of SUNCORPORATION (JASDAQ: 6736) initiated a meeting to discuss the possibility of reinvigorating the Sunsoft console gaming brand in the USA. At that meeting, it was quickly obvious that the relationship was a great fit. GAIJINWORKS President, Victor Ireland states, “My relationship with Sunsoft and Yoshida-san goes back more than 15 years, and when this opportunity presented itself to help Sunsoft return to the US console market, it was a natural fit for both our companies.”

This month, the Sunsoft website is being re-launched at sunsoftgames.com, where users will be able to get the latest information about current releases, upcoming games, and special promotions, as well as interact in the forum. Kiharu Yoshida wanted gamers to know that Sunsoft plans to launch a number of special promotions where big prizes can be won, and exclusive, limited edition premiums would be up for grabs as well. Ireland added that some of the swag being made would only be available through these promotions – and is sure to please Sunsoft fans, new and old.


The first title out of the gate for Sunsoft USA will be the Wii Virtual Console release of the Nintendo Entertainment System classic Blaster Master, due in December 2009. Originally titled Meta Fight in Japan, this groundbreaking game was given a story makeover and released in 1988 as Blaster Master™ here in the United States. It received strong critical acclaim and fan raves almost from the moment it hit these shores.

Blaster Master™ is still often listed on magazine and online charts as one of the top 25 NES games ever created. The sublime blend of side-scrolling shooting/platforming mixed with overhead perspective action/shooting areas is just as addictive now as it was then. It will be available for 500 Wii points.

In the coming weeks, additional titles coming to the US market will be announced, many of which will surprise and delight gaming fans. Ireland added, “This first Wii release is a great start, but there is one upcoming announcement in particular that will demonstrate just how serious Yoshida-san is about rebuilding the Sunsoft console gaming brand here. Game fans are going to be pretty happy when they hear about it – I know I was. “

I think Bayonetta and Samus are more iconic than Lara Croft.

Do y'all remember when Cave Story was coming out in the fall of 2008?
That was a fun time!

Where's the pokemon platinum update for Pokemon Ranch? Nintendo's really dropping the ball on the pokemon console titles for this gen.
I've heard that their current stance is that they have no plans to release it outside of Japan. I'm crossing my fingers for a combined Platinum/HGSS update next year, but I wouldn't hold my breath.

Is it just me, or are there like 2 decent DSiWare games?

DSi needs VC!
It's just you.

I think Bayonetta and Samus are more iconic than Lara Croft.

Really? They've been pretty good recently. Plus you sound British anyway.
Blimey! I surely am not one the queen's subjects, I'm not.

It's frustrating that they haven't released The Ninja Warriors Again by Taito. One of the best beatem ups on the SNES. They also haven't released a lot of games from the Neo-Geo lately. So many games I'd love to play. Nam '75 and 8 Man to name a few.
