@chiptoon I totally agree with you! I HATE not being able to browse for game in stores. Luckily its not the same scenario as with having had a Gamecube in RSA, since there was no Kalahari or eshop in 2002. Back in my day, gaming was tough I tell you, tough!

I have come to a conclusion about my relationship with Nintendo: they are the reason for my utter lack of maturity.The first batch hasn't been released yet, and I've already structured a budget to buy plastic toys up until March! HOW OLD AM I?!!

I loved it. I loved the variety,and I loved how lighthearted everything was. The other shows were filled with such levity it got kind boring. The only showcase I watched in entirety.(I only have Nintendo consoles, so go figure). One question though, any news on the Shin Megami X Fire Emblem title, which was confirmed on many a gaming site? I was pretty psyched to see something on that.

Salutations from South Africa! I purchased this fine game on Friday evening. I was impressed to the point where I did not sleep. I thought Saturday would be just as good, maybe better. Imagine my surprise when I saw that I could download a free game just because I decided to get a game I really wanted. I did not plan on it, nor expected this delightful surprise. This weekend I thus got WW HD and MK8. What a momentous occasion for me. What a momentous occasion for gaming in general. Nintendo, you have my bow.

To anyone who isn't certain about buying this game: I think you should.
Even though I read all the (excellent) reviews, the past wasn't kind to JPRG's in general, and I didn't want to get hurt again. I'm happy I gave love another chance.
