Mass Effect 2 - Lair of the Shadow Broker for me. It came along at the right time and got me back into the Mass Effect universe (and gaming in general). A good-sized addition which glued together bits of the ME world and added a lot to a later replay of ME2. And even with a storyline that's essentially high-falutin' politics, it was fun to play.

Shame about the dragons. I mean, do we know for sure that they can't fly backwards? Maybe some cheeky dev was just trying to help world evolution a bit...

Sounds great, but I'm sticking with Disgaea on PSP for now.

Anyone know what happened to Leaderboard Golf for the Wii? It was listed as a forthcoming title soon after console release but seems to have evaporated from the lists now. I was looking forward to that.

What on Earth is 'The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy (Wii)'? And does it involve perverse actions with the Wiimote?

Disney wants Kingdom Hearts III

You can sympathise - I want KHII but am also 'too busy' so haven't got it yet and don't have time to play it. Though I might have a bit more time now I've finally played through Dragon Quest 8 last weekend...

Euro Wii in March 2007?

I'm with The_Foo_Fighter - don't spend too long browsing around the 'laminated book of dreams' emporium or your eyes'll bleed.

Perhaps we can just wait a few hours and find out for sure - at least it's Friday now :-)

The 10 minute gameplay video at GameSpot makes me want to buy a PC game for the first time ever. At least I still have time to sort out getting a PC to play it on...

Even the BBC can't resist a titter (http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/technology/4953650.stm) - last line of the article is 'Only time will tell whether Nintendo can replicate that kind of success [Nintendo DS] with its Wii'.

But what's in a name anyway?

Surely 'Nintendo Wii' by any other name would smell as sweet?

It's a bit harsh to bash Nintendo when the competition's so imaginative: Sony - PS1. PS2. PS3. Microsoft - Windows 95. 98. 2000. (OK, Microsoft went completely craaaaaaazy with XP and now Vista, but still.)

"this is not the best handheld RPG money can buy today"

Quick question: what would you say *is* the best handheld RPG? Golden Sun? GS: Lost Age? Riviera?

Amazon UK are still saying 26 May 2006 for release which you'd probably tend not to believe, but Play also says 26 May. Doesn't really matter since I'll still be churning through DQ8 anyway.

Pokemon DS game erases data

Talha: That's partly why getting a DS can be a bit of a no-brainer; I missed out on any kind of Gameboy in the past so, with my DS, have the whole GBA back catalogue to choose from in addition to DS games. Since the DS launched I've found I've played more GBA games than DS ones. And the battery lasts longer as only one screen is being powered :-)

Is it me or has the 'roadkill' review disappeared? I can't even seem to find it by searching (e.g. for 'Fifa').

Let's hope EA haven't gone and done something they'll regret...

Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance

I sailed through the first 16 chapters of the first GBA Fire Emblem, getting (I think) slightly addicted - should you be getting up at 5am to play it? Since then I've stopped (OK, moved house which delayed everything), but it's so special I want to continue without getting anyone killed. And I've stuffed up Chapter 17 twice in the last week...

There's definitely something about Fire Emblem.

Wonderful, great review. It actually sounds physically painful to have to play this game.
