Lazy basts. Tututut.
Bit dead in here anyway, hmmm?

Anywho ... on with the show.
Battalion Wars really did pull its finger out, scooping a rather impressive 90& from what was looking rather rubbish a while ago. Good stuff.

No other GC reviews of much interest - PAL Pokémon gets 86%, though I still won't be buying it: it's really not the game we were promised now, is it? And only 83 'mon to catch? That's just rubbish.

Mario Football - 69%. Meh. Could have been very nice with a little more work.
" Baseball - 80%. Bit better. I still don't really care, though.
" Dancing Thingy - 77%. Yawn

Ultimate Spider-Man a depressing 70% after the rather enjoyable Spidey 2 - they even changed the swinging to something rubbish. Er ... why? Nasty pop-up and graphics beyond the nice close-up cell-shading stuff as well.

Then:
Sims 2 - 68%
Lego Star Wars - 80%
Two random X-Men games, one with 30%, t'other with 80%


Handheld shizzle:

Two nice ones this month, Gunstar (GBA) gets a 5, an impressive side-scrolling shooter from (oh shock) Treasure. Also, surprisingly, Kirby: Power Paintbrush (aka Touch! Kirby, aka Kirby: Canvas Curse) gets a 5 as well, being what Yoshi should have been to start with. Yummy.

Mario Tennis gets a 4 as well, as does Lost in Blue (although from the review it seems like LiB should have scored lower) ...


And (if you don't know already) when Mario Kart DS (whoop) gets released on the 25th of Nov, so does Ninty's Wireless service. You can even buy a rather nice Nintendo USB-slotted wireless dongle for Ł30 is you're not wire-free already. Good stuff. Time to get the DS cooking again.


Other crap:

Big stuff being the Rev controller, obviously, as they just missed out on the revealing with the last issue. Just as you'd expect - run-through of everything it does. Also pointing out that all mention of the "Revolution" has dropped from Ninty's mouths, so perhaps a new console name is in the works? If it matters.

Baten Kaitos gets a sequel.
New True Crime could actually be good.
Little article on all of Shigsy's little hints dropped slyly before his then-seeming-jokes / throwaway-comments actually came true.

There you go!

They could easily make a MMORPG that would pwn pretty much everything.
