Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Double Agent (Ubisoft) September 2006

I'd have thought that that was an important one.

It's going to be shit and you jolly well know it.

Pipa Funnel...oh dear lord. Still some nice titles in there and perhaps the GC isn't as dead as I had predicted, which is nice, I wouldn't want my nice 'Cube to become useless just because the Wii is arriving!

Trying to think of a witty signature after 'Hacker-gate'...

Ooh, didn't notice that, there are quite a lot of games there I only skimmed through, cheers.


EDIT: I'm also looking forward to the new Lego Star Wars titles, but I don't know how the rest of you feel about them. Smilie

For those that are unaware, 'tijdelijke naam' is Dutch for 'temporary name' Smilie

And yay for Engrish Training (sp on purpose). The English is a bit dodgy in places in the Japanese version, so hopefully it'll be sorted for this Euro (not UK, I presume?) release. Will the Brits get the Jap and German versions instead, maybe?

Has anyone else noticed how the big name DS titles start to dry up towards the end of the year? It must be so that the new software gets all the attention - Wii and DSL.

Tha GBA games are terrible after Final Fantasy. Smilie I just hope that Nintendo decide to release some Double packs towards the end of the year. Theres a massive amount of back catalogued games just waiting to be re-released!

Some of those are a bit off - for example, Rainbow Islands Revolution on DS is already out...

GBA is dead
Long live the DS! Smilie

Last update; Mice,Plumbers,Animatronics and Airbenders. We also have the socials; Facebook & G+

New Mario in JUNE?! Fuck that, come Monday I'm off to G-FORCE. Smilie

I also thought RIR was out...crazy. But not seen it in-stores.

Nintendo has LOADS of Jap game it could translate:

- Fire Emblem 6 (we got 7 and 8 on the GBA);
- three Legend of Starfi platform games (as good as Mario);
- Magical Vacation (DS version coming in Jan 2007, why not bring Brownie Brown's prequel over first?)
- Tomato Adventure (quirky pre-Mario & Luigi RPG from same developer AlphaDream)
- Mother 1+2 (dual-pack of the original NES game Earthbound Zero and the SNES Earthbound)
- Mother 3 (rumoured to be coming in Winter anyway, though)
- Tales of the World: Narikiri Dungeon 1-3 (Namco's Tales spin-off RPGs, all highly rated)

Look at that list - that'd definitely fill up 2006's GBA roster very well indeed!

It's definitely out, I've seen it in a few places. Very low key release, but it's definitely there (and there'll be a review on it next week after the E3 stuff has died down, folks!).


Umm.. Warioware Twisted is out I think..

EDIT: Nope, but Amazon are listing it as June 1st,

My fucking god!!!!! What the hell is up with Harvest Moon!? Not to mention...

Apparantly the problem with twisted is that the cartridge it uses dosn't meet specific european standerd Smilie so who knows when it will show up.

what about the release of the DS Lite?

Oktober? Smilie
