I'm a bit late... Oops. By the way guys, I think this might be the last time I can do the UK chart because I'm moving out in a couple of days and I don't think I'll be able to get my Wii online at uni. Could be proved wrong but I think them's the breaks. Anyone can feel free to continue it if they want!

1 (4) - Contra Rebirth
2 (1) - Tales of Monkey Island Chapter 1
3 (2) - My Aquarium
4 (3) - Family Slot Car Racing
5 (6) - My Pokemon Ranch

20 (-) - Final Fantasy IV: The After Years

Up: Contra's now up top, like everywhere but Japan and the Netherlands :p. LostWinds still enjoying a revival. Darklord's up a bit too.
Down: Monkey Island! Gasp. Both Texas Hold'ems are losing ground. Mr Driller takes a hit.
Hello: The After Years makes a reappearance. Hello The After Years!
Goodbye: Defend Your Castle, from 20. First time it's been ousted? I'm not sure...

Rum_Rapture commented on Nintendo Download: Super Star Wars, Golden Axe...:

@Rapadash6 We got those arcade games in the last couple of weeks, and you got Super Star Wars a fair few weeks ago, so it's only fair for you to wait and see if you get them within the next few weeks, right? As for stuff like Smash Bros and Pilotwings, remember that when they were originally released, you got Smash Bros 7 months before we did, and as for Pilotwings, that was a year and a half. Does that give you a little perspective? :/

The original wasn't released in the UK, was it? Hopefully we'll see the sequel... Along with LIT! Come on, WayForward! I'll be your BEST FRIEND.

Rum_Rapture commented on Pluck A Plush Pikmin From Club Nintendo EU:

@Popyman: I got 200 stars when I bought Rhythm Paradise the other day... So I'd have to buy 10 DS games to have enough for that plushie... I'm not sure how much you get for Wii games, but I want to say 250 stars..?

I only have about 950 stars at the moment anyway... Wonder how long that'll be in the catalogue!

Rum_Rapture commented on Nostalgia North American Release Date Announced:

I can't get enough of DS RPGs. I hope this gets released in the UK at some point. If not though, I might import it (along with Super Robot Taisen OG Saga: Endless Frontier)... Because I NEED RPGS.

I don't get why people are being quite so hard on Monkey Island, the port wasn't exceptional but the game is still good, and pretty much the only option for people like me (I have a Mac and the PC in our house doesn't have sufficient graphical oomph).

Rum_Rapture commented on Bonsai Barber out in Europe this week:

@Bahamut ZERO: Wait, I didn't quite understand your reasoning there, there aren't enough reviews to get a reliable average of how good a game is, so you put all your trust in one site instead? :P And surely 79 is still very good? I always thought that 80% ish was a great score to get. Not perfect or brilliant but very good.

I want to buy Bonsai Barber, but it's adding to a steadily increasing pile of WiiWare games that I currently don't have the money to spare on... Erk.

Rum_Rapture commented on Nintendo Download: Monkeys, Musketeers, Cards ...:

"At least in Europe they were just being conservative to prepare for rush of import titles but we don't have release specials like that ever"

Those are special for us because they never got released in Europe in the first place, whereas a lot of them did in America (Super Mario RPG, Ogre Battle, Kirby's Dream Land 3, etc) :P

I have Puzzle League DS and have never played it in multiplayer but I can heartily recommend it, considering that it has a lot of single player modes to keep you going. If you really do get all of them for 500 points that's a pretty rad deal.

Rum_Rapture commented on PopCap Confirms Wii, DSi Support:

Peggle being on XBLA means it wouldn't be out of the question to bring it to WiiWare. I'd buy that so hard, especially since they haven't released Dual Shot here in Europe. Sigh!
